So, Bingers, honesty time: are you still reeling out of the ending of Avengers: Endgame? It was something, right? Most of us thought that was the end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or its Phase 3, at least. But it came ass a surprise to many when Marvel announced that it was not the phase closer but instead Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to the 2017 film Spider-Man: Homecoming! This announcement elevated all the hype for the film and is both a good thing and a bad thing. Why’d I say so? Find out below!
Bingers, I know how much Filipinos love the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Most of us saw EVERY movie in the franchise and I am pretty sure most of us were devastated by the horrible ending of Avengers: Infinity War. Thanos snapped half the universe and had us craving and begging for the finale. The wait is finally over and here is Avengers: Endgame!
DC had their Wonder Woman in 2017. Two years later and Marvel Studios finally released their first female-led superhero movie. And it was at a perfect timing. Captain Marvel is the perfect tie-in between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The superhero is touted to be among the strongest in the universe and is a formidable foe for Thanos. So, with that much power, did she prove herself to be worthy of a standalone movie? Well, that’s what we are going to find out in a bit.
What are you currently binging on on Netflix, Bingers? Let me guess, Russian Doll? Or You? Or maybe you recently started watching the latest series featuring a bunch of teenage superheroes. And no, they are not the X-Men but yes, they are as cool! I am talking about The Umbrella Academy! To hype up the release of the first season, Netflix Philippines built the epic Seven Super Rooms. All of which were themed after the characters from the show! And of course, The Little Binger was at the launch, along with other members of the press, celebrities, and influencers! It was a night of taking LOTS of photos and PARTYING! Curious on what went down? We got the deets!
Alright, Bingers. Let’s get down to it…Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is easily the best Spider-Man movie to date. And yes, that outshines the brilliance of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man! I bet you are curious about it now, huh? Well, read along as I will tell you why I am in love, or dare I say, obsessed with it.
We all love Spidey. Well, forget about him. This is his adversary’s time to shine! In the past Spider-Man movies, we saw several reincarnations of the Green Goblin. The superhero has a long list of foes that have been brought to life in the movies but now it is Venom’s turn for a second chance. We saw him first in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy in Spider-Man 3. Topher Grace did a pretty good impression of the alien parasite. About a decade later, the anti-superhero character is returning to the big screen thanks to Tom Hardy. Are you ready to see Venom despite the amount of hate that it is receiving online? Well, we loved it and you should see why!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane. No, it’s Superman! And he has landed last June 1 at SM Mall of Asia to kick-off Philippines’ celebration of his 80th Anniversary! I attended the event and it was something that the geek in me thoroughly enjoyed. Read up on what went down and what to expect in the coming days!
Without a doubt, Marvel Studios is one of the biggest movie franchises to date. With an entire universe of characters at hand and 18 movies on the roster, Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest crossover that was 10 years in the making. With that said, the film is met with high expectations and exceeded them easily. Read up to find out our take on the movie and how it faced our expectations head-on!
