    Comic Book Movie War: DC VS Marvel

    With the continuous success of Marvel movies popularizing the live-action comic book adaptation since the 2002 "Spider-Man" starring Tobey Maguire, and the re-vitalization of DC’s Batman franchise in the 2005 reboot by Christopher Nolan, superheroes has become a feature of mainstream Hollywood blockbuster. 2016 marks the beginning of phase 3 of the Marvel cinematic universe with "Captain Amercia: Civil War" and DC’s first attempt upon expansion with "Dawn of Justice", the age-long rivalry between the two comic book juggernaut take each other head on for the first time on the silver-screen. Who will win box office in 2016 and which will be more well-received by the critics?

    • If I recall, Toby McGuire was a movie character played by Tom Cruise. You may want to change that detail accordingly. – JDJankowski 5 years ago

    • JDJankowski - Tobey Maguire was the actor who played Peter Parker in the 2002 "Spider-Man" movie (source here -> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0145487/); Tom Cruise was not involved.Tofuboy - this is a really intriguing topic! Grammatically, the post needs a little revision to make your main points clearer. Please reconsider your wording and sentence structures (i.e. the first sentence is a run-on etc.) Otherwise, great ideas! – Megan Finsel 5 years ago

    • Batman vs Superman has received a LOT of hype, everyone is looking forward to it! Will it rival the Avengers movies? The thing is that it seems as though DC has a fan barrier I have yet to penetrate and I'm sure a lot of casual superhero movie watchers feel the same. It's all about Batman... That's all I know, that's all I've really watched and honestly it feels like that's mostly what they put out. With good cause considering I never watched Man of Steel and AM invested in Batman, but unlike Marvel it feels like they don't try to cover the spectrum of heroes at there disposal. Marvel is even reaching out to previously unknown/unpopular heroes in their Netlfix series like Daredevil who is unlikely to contribute to the movie franchise... and what does DC do in response? Gotham. Is this focus on Batman helping DC with a dependable fanbase or is it hindering them from getting new people invested in their world overall? – Slaidey 5 years ago

    Watch this video, and the theory itself proves to be quite convincing.

    Film Theory: Disney's FROZEN - Anna and Elsa Are NOT SISTERS?!

    Why is Disney Overemphasizing Frozen?

    One fun fact, there is a theory that suggests Elsa is not Anna’s biological sister, but in fact Rapunzel’s twin who was sent to the neighboring kingdom in fear of being kidnapped for her magical power after the incident with Rapunzel.

    Realistically speaking, the global mutation featured in the game is probably the most plausible events that can happen to us in terms of pandemic in video game. I’ve played the game multiple times since its first release on the PS3 and it is one of the best gaming experience I’ve had for a long time. Just hope the fungus that inspired the concept behind this game would eventually evolve into affected humans. It is terrifying just to imagine.

    I highly recommend the recent ongoing series of One-Punch Man. It is a parody of many action anime that features ridiculously overpowered characters. The main protagonist Saitama has power to defeat anyone in one punch, as the title suggest. Sounds like a stupid concept on paper, but in fact it proves to be hugely entertaining on paper (the manga). The anime adaptation is one of the best anime I’ve seen that came up this year. Despite being a comedy, the animations of the fight scenes in this show is top-notched. Definitely worth checking out.
