The Films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ranked, 2016 Catch Up Edition

Posted by Matthew on February 17, 2017
Editorial, Film Review / 1 Comment

We’re continuing to shake off the dust around here at Awesome Friday HQ, and one easy way to do that is to update the Marvel Fanboy Marvel Cinematic Universe Rankings. Last year there were two additions to the canon of films, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. Each were good, but where do they fit? Let’s take a look.

Last time I did this I grouped the films into three categories, this time I’m doing a straight up ranking. Feel free to agree or disagree with me. In fact, I encourage it.

Now let’s get to it.

Marvel Announced Ant-Man Sequel, ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, for 2018 + 3 New Movies for 2020

News / Comments Off on Marvel Announced Ant-Man Sequel, ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, for 2018 + 3 New Movies for 2020

Paul Rudd + Evangeline Lily

Holy crap, Marvel has updated their film schedule again with a sequel to Ant-Man titled Ant-Man and The Wasp. This will be the second film with a heroine’s name in the title (Captain Marvel has been rescheduled, more on that in a moment) which is a good thing. This also makes 2017, 18, 19, and 20 all 3 Marvel movie years, which is nuts.

The Films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ranked, Ant-Man Edition

Posted by Matthew on August 10, 2015
Editorial / Comments Off on The Films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ranked, Ant-Man Edition

Marvel

It’s been a while since I made one of these lists! There have been two new Marvel films since last time so it’s time to see where they fit into the mix. I rewatched all the Marvel films in the lead up to Avengers: Age of Ultron so the films are still pretty fresh in the mind.

While the movies here are ranked from worst to best, I’m also grouping them into three categories: The ok ones, the good ones, and the great ones. If you’re wondering why there’s no “bad” category it’s both because I still enjoy the “ok” ones and because I can still appreciate the bad ones for the development of characters, story, and themes that run through the entire MCU (even if they’re pretty thin at times). Also also, it’s an exercise in being less negative.

Anyway, let’s get on with this.

Daredevil Review: Too Long, But Pretty Good Anyway

Television Review / Comments Off on Daredevil Review: Too Long, But Pretty Good Anyway

Daredevil

I’ve finally seen all of Daredevil, the first of Marvel’s (current) 5 Netflix shows. So here’s a quick rundown of what I thought of all 13 episodes. TL;DR version? I liked it, but I didn’t love it. Also, this review will contain spoilers. I’ll keep it to a minimum but it is just not going to be possible to avoid them all, and since I like it enough to recommend you watch it, well, … you’re warned anyway.

Hooray! Ant-Man Trailer Looks Legitimately Good!

Ant-Man / Paul Rudd

There’s a shiny new full trailer for Ant-Man and it looks really good!

Fair warning, this trailer feels like it gives away from plot details. That being said so do most Marvel trailers and they’ve basically all been pretty misleading about what the real story is. You call. Don’t say I never warned you.

Awesome ‘Agent Carter’ Series Poster is Awesome

Agent Carter

Marvels next foray into television is an 8 episode mini series about Agent Peggy Carter, master spy, founding member of S.H.I.E.L.D., and generally awesome character.

The series is set in the 40s, post WW2 and post Captain America becoming a capsicle and will depict the early days of the spy organization.

And it has a totally awesome poster!

Agent Carter

Seriously, how awesome is that? I love the retro style.

Agent Carter debuts in January and will complete its full run before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Returns in March. I, for one, am looking forward to it.
