Bonjour, my bonny mailboxes. Thanks to your abundance of excellent letters, I have an extra big mailbag for you today! So let’s get right to it: What’s the best Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack? Who could save the Transformers movie franchise? Why did WB decide to make the DCEU’s Batman so damn old? And more of …
This week, Disney opens their first Marvel Studios theme park ride in the United States, called Guardians of the Galaxy—Mission: Breakout! Though it features many, many elements from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, don’t let that fool you: the ride is in a world all its own... and it’s only the beginning.
If you’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, you probably know what ships we mean. If you haven’t, well, go see it and come back later.
The Empire Strikes Back is one of the gold standards filmmakers aspire to when making a sequel. And though both Chris Pratt and Kevin Feige swear it was never mentioned during the making of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the films share a lot of similarities. A lot of similarities.
Marvel movies are known for their teasing mid- and post-credits scenes, but with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, they up the ante with five of them after the conclusion of the movie. Some are jokes, but some have huge ramifications for future Marvel movies. Here’s how and why.
Nostalgia is a huge part of the charm in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s the classic pop music, of course, but also the reverence Chris Pratt’s character Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, has for the pop culture of his childhood, things the character loved before he was snatched off Earth. This posed a problem…
Next month, the world’s first Guardians of the Galaxy theme park ride opens at Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim, CA. And as the clock ticks down to the opening, Disney just revealed the six songs that make up the ride’s soundtrack.
Of all of Marvel’s vaguely defined villains, Nebula was always more of an opportunist than a straight-up believer, which is why her changing sides in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 works. But, according to Karen Gillan, Nebula wasn’t even supposed to be alive to switch sides.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 doesn’t open for a few more weeks, but today was the opening of the floodgates. Reviews, news, quotes, you name it, and today you probably read about for the upcoming Marvel movie.
The biggest problem with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Vol. 1, if you will, was such a huge, surprise hit that most of the massive audiences who will flock to see Vol. 2 will all want to relive watching the first film. They’ll get their wish, sometimes, but other times Vol.…
This week saw the release of Chip Zdarsky, Kris Anka, and Matthew Wilson’s Star-Lord #6—which is, sadly, now the final issue of the series save for a one-shot annual arriving later this year. It’s such a shame, because this series has tackled Star-Lord in ways that few comics since the Guardians movie have even…
If possible, you should go into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as clean as possible. There are a lot of huge surprises. However, now that the film is screening and the cast is doing interviews, spoilers are starting to leak—including some major ones at today’s press conference.
Ever since the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie dropped a hint of Marvel’s quantum magic-flinging hero Adam Warlock, fans have wondered when or if he’d ever join his fellow Guardians on the big screen. But now we know that he’s definitely coming, and when to expect him.
After the reveal that Captain America has secretly been a Hydra agent, after the controversy, and after months of teasing and build-up, the first issue of Marvel’s Secret Empire event is here. And boy, there are a lot of things happening—some tragic, some exciting, and some... well, baffling.
Despite the bitchin’ soundtrack, Telltale Games’ latest collaboration, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, can’t be called a thrilling, rock-fueled space opera. It’s more like easy listening. The first episode’s biggest event happens in the first few minutes, and everything else is characters sitting around and…
Marvel has announced the much-anticipated soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and it looks like James Gunn and the Guardians crew have outdone themselves, with an impressive and eclectic set list that truly earns the name “Awesome Mix.”
So, in a certain way, that’s a comic based on a game inspired by a movie based on a comic that the game based on a movie is also based on, loosely. I think. Hold on, I’m starting to get a headache.
James Gunn, the man behind the movie iteration of Guardians of the Galaxy—and who may one day win an award for being the man most in love with his job, social media, and talking about his job on social media—has announced that he’ll be back for a third Guardians movie.
For a while, we’ve been hearing that not all of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 takes place in space. New details courtesy of an extended skit on Jimmy Kimmel last night, however, have given us a few more details that might explain a few things as to why we’ll be heading to Earth in the new movie.
I’m back, my bulk mail brothers and sisters! I am also now 40 years old, which means if you enjoy my opinions and mail column, I officially have the wisdom of age on my side. If you don’t, no worries, because death is coming for me. This week: Baby Groot hate! Mutant-Inhuman hybrids! And—gasp!—the merits of The Big…
