"I’m my father’s son too…"

Even when the recent animated movies (Flashpoint, War) from WB/DC has been mildly disappointing instead of entertaining, there’s always this spark of interest whenever a new title is announced, ESPECIALLY when it’s anything related to Batman. Yes, step aside Superman, even for a non DC fan, the Bat has been admittedly a more interesting figure. Just in time with the 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight (along with his fellow Trinity Wonder Woman, in case you actually care err… I mean not aware), two new direct-to-video animated movies were announced to be released this year (alongside, several animated shorts which were amazing). The first one that has hit the market is SON OF BATMAN, featuring the character Damian Wayne, while the other one coming in Summer, ASSAULT ON ARKHAM. Both look promising in trailer, but will they do the same in full-length? Since (obviously) the latter will not be available for quite some time, I’ll go ahead and post my perspective on the first one…

"Love… Loss… Pain. They are the stones in the wall that block your path…"

One of the most talked about upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) hero, is none other than the Sorcerer Supreme himself, Doctor Strange. With his name recently (and officially) named in the latest MCU movie, it’s safe to say that he’s definitely coming to the big screen as a part of Phase 3’s ensemble (possibly in 2016/2017). However, I’m no Marvellites, so although I indeed have played him on the Marvel vs Capcom 3 game, I’m still completely clueless about this guy. That’s where uncle Google showed me the way, and led me to a direct-to-dvd release in 2007 called Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme.

If you do CARE about someone, then SHOW IT… don’t just say it!
If you’re truly a FRIEND then PROVE IT, don’t just claim that you’re one!

Inspired by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, yes… especially that final duel.

I think this (Kooky Quartet) needs to happen in Age of Ultron, don’t you think?
NOTE: Original images taken from Marvel.com. I just had to do this quick Photoshop (hence the poor quality) just because I’m still in massive hype for Captain America: The Winter Soldier ;D

Avengers Confidential… Badass Beauty and the Badass Beast!”

After the abysmal experience (read: a particularly bizarre and underwhelming CG flick) that was Iron Man & Hulk, Marvel released another of its home-video release, but this time around thankfully it’s their anime-collaboration project. A continuous joint venture with the acclaimed MADHOUSE Studio, after releasing Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men, Blade (the only one I skipped) on the small screen and Rise of Technovore (which I thought was good, but the opposite to fans *sigh*), this next feature introduced an unlikely-though-not-so-bizarre combo of Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) and Frank Castle (The Punisher) as the leads. Neither was my favorite, so to be honest I wasn’t looking forward to this… but of course, I watched it anyway. So in the spirit of commemorating Black Widow’s big screen comeback in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a review (albeit short) would be somewhat appropriate…
