The thing about watching Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is there was no question of if the movie would be good. The first Spider-Verse movie was a revelation, an epoch for animation, and I barely mean that as hyperbole.
I’m late to the party to review Thor: Love and Thunder. So late that I’ve been spoiled somewhat by consensus. Going in, I knew people didn’t like the goats and that the comedy was apparently overbearing.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is perhaps the Marvel movie most affected by a real-world event. There’s no way to even examine this movie without taking into account the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman. It feels inadequate to say that his portrayal of the character gave joy to so many people and that he will be missed by the world.
The thing about the Quantumania trailer isn’t that it’s not visually cool; it’s that it will probably be disappointing. I’ve repeatedly found with the Ant-Man movies that the concepts and potential visuals never pay off as well as they could.
Werewolf by Night is a fun, campy Marvel show that disappointed me because of its marketing and presentation. If you wanted to see a horror movie done in the Marvel universe with a Deadpool level of R-rated gore, then you’re in for an unpleasant surprise.
From the offset, I was onboard for She-Hulk. I’m not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to comics, but a lawyer who deals with the legal ramifications of superpowered shenanigans is a great premise.
As I’m sure is true of many of its viewers, I’ve not read The Sandman comics. The series finished before I was born, so I hope it’s at least a little forgivable. I watched the show because I love Coraline and deeply enjoyed Good Omens and American Gods. Neil Gaiman tends to make stuff I like, and the trailers looked fantastic.
Here are a few trailers for sci-fi films now streaming or coming soon that you’ll want to put on your Watch List.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a movie that could only exist this deep in the Marvel phenomenon. It doesn’t flow or function like an actual movie—it heavily assumes you’ve seen so much media. It doesn’t give you time or an adequate explanation for half the stuff that happens.
Going into Moon Knight, I had few expectations. I wasn’t familiar with the character. All I knew about them was that Moon Knight had more than one personality, and at least one of them had superpowers.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is the type of movie that could only exist in this new media environment. The draw is the spectacle of connecting reboots and pulling in actors to reprise long-gone roles.
