‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ Gets Three New Posters

Spider-Man: Far from Home is the third Marvel movie set to come out this year but what has bamboozled fans since December is the fact that the trailer was released before we’ve seen Endgame. What’s even stranger than the fact that Spider-Man is alive and kicking is the fact that it seems like the terrible events that occurred during Infinity War are nonexistent. It left a lot of people feeling like we were given a huge spoiler pre-Avengers: Endgame.

While there hasn’t been much information about Far from Home since the trailer release a few posters were released in the last week highlighting everyone’s favorite teenage superhero. Here they are.

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Falcon

Yesterday’s character posters for this series focused on my favorite Marvel superhero Doctor Strange. It was fascinating looking at his various posters since Doctor Strange and now, today, it’s time to look at Falcon’s character posters since his debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Enjoy!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is easily one of the best superhero movies ever made and one of the reasons why it is so magnificent is because of Falcon. His role in the film was exceptional and he instantly became one of the coolest characters in the MCU.

This poster is fun to look at because it shows how far he has come. At the time he was equipped with this rugged version of the Falcon exo-suit and wore nothing more than this grey shirt and camouflage pants. This was before he joined The Avengers and you can totally tell.

‘Aquaman’ or ‘Wonder Woman’: Which Movie Is Your Favorite?

Last Tuesday Aquaman became available to buy on Blu-Ray and because I loved the film I totally wanted to buy it. And I did. I’ve watched the film three times since Tuesday and I totally wanted to make it the subject for today’s Who’s Your Favorite? 

Both Aquaman and Wonder Woman are the only movies in the current DC Universe that are certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and they have both received wide-acclaim from critics and casual movie viewers alike.

Both films were also presented as origin stories of sorts with each character making their DC Universe debut in Batman vs. Superman. So, on that note, here is a deeper look into each film.

Wonder Woman and Aquaman

Diana Prince, the main antagonist of Wonder Woman, is a powerful heroine whose view of the world of man was naive. She thought the evil that corrupted men’s hearts was only produced by Ares’ tampering but she soon learned that man was easily corruptible and flawed. She almost gave up on mankind but she discovered that yes, humans are flawed, but there is beauty in their imperfections and that there are good people who need her protection. She would end up defeating Ares with love and made it her mission to continue protecting the world by any means necessary from those with evil intentions.

Aquaman is a man born of two worlds; the Land and the Sea. His half-Atlantean roots made him feel that he was unworthy to become King of Atlantis and so he chose to run away from his destiny. But when the time came for a king to be crowned in order to save billions of lives from Orm’s diabolical plan he learned that he was greater than he could possibly have imagined and that he truly was worthy of being a king.

Why Are the Women in ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ So Sad?

A few days ago I watched Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald for the first time and for the most part, I enjoyed it. The sequel played an interesting role in setting up what is sure to be a thrilling final three films but it also alienated some as it told a complex story that didn’t exactly reach the standards we were all expecting.

I found the movie to be better than I expected…and a bit underwhelming at the same time. But what I clearly noticed and was slightly disturbed by after watching the film was the dreadfully depressing storylines of each and every female character in the movie.

J.K Rowling, who is clearly one of the greatest storytellers in this generation, is a woman and as a fellow woman, I would expect her to create strong, powerful women in these films. And she did, for the Harry Potter movies.

There was Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, Professor McGonnagal, Bellatrix Lestrange, Ginny Weasley, and so many other women who were never depicted as powerful because of men. They were simply, powerful.

With so many incredible ladies to love in the Harry Potter movies, one would expect to receive women just as awesome in the Fantastic Beasts series and at first, we did in Tina and Queenie Goldstein.

As sisters, they stood out, not because they were damsels in distress, but because they were two young women navigating themselves through the growing conflict in the Wizardling World thanks to the excelling murmurings of Gellert Grindelwald. Yes, they both had serious crushes on the two male characters that accompanied them (Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski) but romance doesn’t diminish a woman’s strength. Or at least, it didn’t.

Now both sisters have become sacks of sadness, and obviously, they wouldn’t be the only ones dealing with strong emotions in the sequel, for J.K Rowling introduced two new heroines in Leta Lestrange and Nagini.

I mean, listen to the storylines for these four women.
