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.
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!

But still, there were still some left for Ant-Man and the Wasp. Clearly, there is still an immense excitement for the movie. I witnessed it myself during the special advanced screening on June 29 at the IMAX Theatre in SM Aura Premiere. The next question is, how does it live up to the hilarious first movie, Ant-Man?

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.

Not to state the obvious but Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War is the most-anticipated movie of 2018 (and the recent years, to be honest!)
