The world is now aware that Tony Stark is Iron Man.
Well well well. This is going to be a tough review to write. I could quite happily talk about this film all day long – but at the same time I don’t want to give away ANY spoilers. I’ve not read any reviews myself so I don’t know how much or how little anyone else is giving away – or what the general consensus on the quality of this film is. I’m just going to have to do my best.
All my loyal readers know that I’m a DC comics nuts. The amount of Marvel comics I’ve read in my life I could probably count on one hand. Despite that – I have always had a strong attachment to The Incredible Hulk.
I’ve been wrong before.. but if I’m right on this then I’m SO going to do my “I told you so” dance in December!
Academy Award winning director Jonathan Demme has passed away at the age of 73 years old.
9 years. 14 films (until the weekend at least), $10.914 Billion at the Box Office. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a JUGGERNAUT. Insanely popular with critics and audiences. A cultural revolution. Other superhero films may have hinted at shared universes before – but Marvel grabbed the bull by the horns and went at it full throttle. And the world LOVES IT.
It’s perhaps the most famous alien abduction case of them all.
So – here’s the next part of my look back at The New 52! I’ve noticed that in the second volumes the quality really varies. Sometimes it absolutely shines – sometimes it doesn’t. I don’t know how fondly it will all be looked back on in years to come. It’s an event that really divided comic book fans. I still think there was a lot of interesting stuff though. I hope y’all enjoying this look back!
So. Let’s get into this…
Dr Richard Kimble’s wife is murdered. He’s found guilty and sentenced to execution by way of lethal injection. Only he didn’t do it. The real culprit is a “One Armed Man”.
When the prison transport bus meets with an accident that allows Kimble to free himself – he goes on the run. U.S Marshall Sam Gerard is tasked with tracking him down and bringing him to justice. Whilst on the run – Kimble is determined to discover the real murderer and clear his name… all whilst trying to stay one stop ahead of Gerard and his crack team of pursuers.
