T'Challa, I'm really happy you're finally getting your own movie and Entertainment Weekly cover, and I'mma let you finish, but the women of Marvel's Black Panther are the fiercest thunder-stealers of all time!
They aren't just worthy of being this week's Women Crush Wednesday, but for the entire month for July!
Featured in Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con Preview currently on stands, the gorgeous members of the Dora Milaje--the King of Wakanda's all-female Secret Service--and the royal family can do pretty much everything. Flawlessly.
Here are the women who are wholly redefining Black Ops and Black Excellence.
Even though I was largely and loudly opposed to the third re-boot of a Peter Parker-led Spider-Man franchise in 15 years, (especially after falling in love with Andrew Garfield's version despite being saddled with a spectacularly cluttered script in The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Tom Holland won me over enough that I was willing to shell out the funds for a VIP ticket to a Thursday night screening.
No, it wasn't his heavily CGI'd appearance in Captain America: Civil War as a pinch-hitter for Team Stark, but rather his killer performance on Lip Synch Battle, where he and co-star (and girlfriend!?!) Zendaya both turned in gender-bending showstoppers. With Holland's spectacular and sure-footed mash-up of Gene Kelly's "Singing In The Rain" and Rihanna's "Umbrella" gave the me life.
So I went into the movie with no expectations—except to be annoyed by Tony Stark's intricate facial hair—and was thoroughly flabbergasted. Not only is Spider-man: Homecoming another box office grand slam for Marvel and Sony, it is a lovingly written, realistically-cast and well-acted superhero movie for the Gen Z and millennial set—something that was missing from both Marvel and DC Entertainment’s current and upcoming rosters.
If you're one of the many sweating your 'do out this weekend, you can blame it on the release of the teaser trailer for Marvel's most-anticipated new franchise, Black Panther because it is straight fire.
Marvel released the new trailer for the 2017's Guardian's Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 earlier this week, and the extended clip features Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, his band of crime-fighting extraterrestrials, some sweet '80s tunes, and a Baby Groot fresh from the pot.
After multiple viewings, I can't decide if Baby Groot, who is still voiced by the gravel-throated Vin Diesel, is cool or too cutesy.
Two distinctly important things happened during my first viewing of Marvel’s record-breaking blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War. First, Civil War—part Jason Bourne thriller, part superhero movie finery—didn’t just live up to the hype, it annihilated it. Second, I may have gone in a shield-carrying member of Team Cap, but I left purring for Black Panther.
This Small Screen Girl has massive expectations for the upcoming blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War. Like The Winter Soldier, Civil War’s timing feels oddly perfect now that the country trapped in the ‘this isn’t funny anymore’ shenanigans of the current presidential election. And it's almost poetic that a superhero that represents truth, justice and the American way will have to battle former friends for the greater good.
In Civil War, the divide arises when a governmental oversight committee is proposes to keep superheroes in check. Tony Stark is ironically a huge champion for it, and Steve is not. The Avenges begin to secede to their respective camps.
While Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) boasts a kickass suit and bizarrely complicated facial hair, I can’t think of one reason to side with Team Iron Man. Sorry not sorry.
Here are 6 reasons why everyone should be #TeamCap...
The best thing about the Super Bowl is that there is something for everyone. If you don’t care for the sports ball game than there’s the half-time show. If Bruno Mars or Coldplay isn’t your thing, then there are the glorious commercials or more importantly, the new movie trailers! Teaser spots for Jason Bourne, Captain America: Civil War and more aired during the big game...
If you heard a window-rattling screech last night, it was just me fangirling to the new “Captain America: Civil War” trailer that debuted during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The teaser for the follow-up to the stellar “Captain America: Winter Solder” is more spectacular than even I could have predicted!
In the trailer, Steve (Chris Evans) finally tracks down Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) who has regained some memories, but reality looms in the form of international agencies that want the Winter Soldier—a rogue Hydra experiment used to commit murders— dead. Meanwhile, mysterious entities associated with the Avengers want to reign in Captain America and other Avengers. “You’ve operated with unlimited power and no supervision. That’s something the world can no longer tolerate.” Um, gulp.
Battle lines are drawn, and everyone takes sides. Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) surprisingly stands with an ever-arrogant Tony Stark, Iron Patriot (Don Cheadle) and Black Panther (Marvel newcomer Chadwick Boseman). Leaving Steve with the Winter Soldier and Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the Scarlet Witch, and Hawkeye. At some point, Steve gets in a fight with a helicopter and a building, and Bucky goes for Iron Man's power core!
If I’m grateful for anything going into Thanksgiving weekend, it’s definitely for this action-packed, explosive trailer! Make use of the pause button to find gasp-worthy shockers and discuss below!
“Captain America: Civil War” hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
