Iron Man teased the idea of a larger movie universe with Agent Coulson mentioning S.H.I.E.L.D. Then the end credits drove it home with Director Nick Fury schooling Tony Stark on not being the only one doing heroics. I flipped out. It was the first time a comic book movie went there; that there’s more out there and that we will see more heroes in the same movie universe.
I was a Batman fan as far back as I can remember. One of my earliest memories is playing with a toy Batmobile. The most rewatched movie for me was the Michael Keaton Batman movie when it was released on VHS. I was only four at the time, so this meant that I had to close my eyes during a particular scene where a mobster was burnt to a crisp. Oddly, I was allowed to look after the act, so I still saw the burnt corpse. My imagination filled in the blanks with something far more terrifying.
This is veering towards another story that I will have tell at another time.
Yesterday was the third and final presidential debate, where we all hatefully yelled at the TV while negativity came out of the TV speakers. But hey, there was one silver-lining. One sliver of hope. A beacon of light that brings smile and joy on the faces of the masses. Director and writer James Gunn released a little teaser for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Some more footage came out for Marvel’s Doctor Strange. And this time, we get glimpses of just how out there things will get.
The previous trailers showed us the reality-bending magic that Doctor Strange and others have — and it looked very similar to the dream sequences from Inception. It’s still a crazy sight but it wasn’t anything new. The footage now released makes the buildings bending and defying gravity look tame in comparison.
