The Inhumans have by and large replaced mutants in the Marvel Universe. From being major plot points in comics events like Infinity and Civil War II to propelling the last two seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Inhumans are the big new thing, and now the animated Avengers have got them. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Inhumans Among Us.”
Finally the Guardians of the Galaxy have found the Cosmic Seed, on Earth, where Thanos found them and took it from them like they were children (I could make a Star-Lord joke here, but I’ll refrain). Now Thanos is using the Seed to make the Earth into his own super-weapon, who can stop him? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “I Feel the Earth Move.”
For too long in the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s quest for the Cosmic Seed, we have been thinking of it as an object, but it may be more than that. This powerful MacGuffin may also have been affecting our heroes’ actions as well. Check out my review of “I’ve Been Searching So Long” after the jump.
The Ghostbusters might not be afraid of no ghosts, but how do they feel about Pets? The much anticipated, much criticized, and reportedly very funny reboot/remake/reimagining of Ghostbusters comes out this weekend against The Secret Life of Pets, which not only ruled the box office last weekend, it broke records for the year with $103 million. Can the hype beat the heat? We’ll find out after the jump with Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Predictions.
Whether it was the clever and early marketing of the film, or the voice talents of Louis CK and Kevin Hart (to name just a couple), or simply the concept of finding out what our pets may be up to while we’re out – The Secret Life of Pets ruled the box office this weekend with over a whopping $100 million in ticket sales. With Tarzan and Dory pulling a distant but respectable second place, this was certainly a pet weekend. Meet me after the jump for a closer look at the box office numbers.
Since Fox still holds the movie rights to the X-Men and the word “mutant,” it seems that the Inhumans have become Marvel’s golden children. They have been front and center in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the current Civil War II, and Infinity brought a new generation of Inhumans to the world. Now, the Guardians of the Galaxy meet the Inhumans again, meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Episode 21, “Inhuman Touch.”
Marvel Comics’ Second Civil War continues this week with at least two comics, but is Marvel really all in on this event, or has it spread itself too thin with other current and upcoming events? Nevertheless, my reviews resume this week with Uncanny Inhumans #11 and Captain Marvel #6, as the side stories continue to shine more than the main series itself. Check them out, after the jump.
The Guardians of the Galaxy animated series is back from the dead. Well, not dead, really. I knew there would be a second season, but really, I thought we were done with the first season already. The Guardians are back however, along with Nebula, Ronan, and the Grandmaster. Meet me after the jump for my review of “Fox on the Run.”
