With the titanic tedium of Batman and Superman having left the studios vision in mortal danger, execs have recognised its time for the boys to step aside
“Its probably fair to say that Supergirl likely to be the next costumed titan to get their own movie is not the first DC superhero who springs to mind for the average comic-book fan. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman occupy far taller plinths on the pantheon than Kara Zor-El, who, prior to the current TV series starring Melissa Benoist, was best known for the 1984 movie so terrible that the characters fellow Kryptonians were probably happy to be dead and buried so they didnt have to watch it.
Yet there is a problem with DCs holy trinity. DC has ruined its plans for a shared universe centred around the three superheroes, with the heavy metal cacophony of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice having jarred horribly with the prosaic lilt of Justice League. If the studio, Warner Bros, has any plans to to get the gang back together again, it will have to do a much better job of getting audiences interested in its characters before trying to unite them in a money-spinning, Marvel-style mega-team.
The good news is that the best instalment so far has been Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman, which was cheerfully unconcerned with the rest of the DC extended universe (DCEU), the movie taking place in a different era to the other films……………….
Enthusiastic first reactions to ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ hit the web
“Spider-Man: Far From Home doesn’t hit theaters for another two weeks, but early reactions from critics promise we’re in for a web-slingin’ good time.
Marvel’s second standalone Spidey film and the final chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three, Far From Home chronicles Peter Parker’s first heroic venture following the death of his beloved mentor Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame.
Tom Holland and Zendaya return as Peter and MJ, alongside MCU newcomer Jake Gyllenhaal as comic book character Mysterio.
Of course, no Marvel movie is complete without the appearance of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury and Maria Hill, played by Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders. As an added bonus, Jon Favreau will reprise his role as Happy Hogan.”

Here’s the Marvel movie watch list you didn’t know you needed
“A Marvel cinematic universe fan made a list of the correct order to watch the long catalog of superhero movies along with some brutally honest commentary.
It has gone viral, for all the right reasonsmostly because its so accurate.
It began when Victoria Aveyard, the New York Times-bestselling author of the book Red Queen, was asked by her roommate to create a checklist of theperfect order in which to watch the films.
From thatrequest, this beauty was born.

The advice is brutally upfront, and gives potential viewers a sense of the films before they even get started.
She calls Iron Man, the granddaddy of them all, while Iron Man 2 is trash.
And for Thor, well she advises to just ignore Natalie Portman, who played Thor’s love interest Jane Foster in the first Thor movie. She appeared later inThor 2: The Dark World, which Aveyard calls “silly.”
She goes on to call the Guardians of the Galaxy fun, and describes Doctor Strange as if House was a Wizard.
Oh, and if youre thinking of watchingIncredible Hulk at all…just don’t.
Aveyard wrote that her comments were intended to guide her roommate, who doesnt like war.
But other Marvel fans stand behind her list.
This is outstanding.
