Out of the 10 Super Bowl Sunday Movie Trailers and 2 TV spots, we give our thoughts on the best ones that got us excited for the film thsmelves!
Most regular film previews can last up to two minutes, but that’s provided you’re seeing them in theatres. Unfortunately, all of the Super Bowl Sunday movie trailers satisfies this criteria. The Flash is its own independent entry than make the list because I thought, “Didn’t I see this before?”
I’ll have to watch my home video release of the television series’ first season to verify if the house is indeed the same architecture, and check if that version of Barry Allen reacted the same way when witnessing his mom’s death. The interior of that home might have been reused, and aside from that, we learn Batman will be key to this adaptation of Flashpoint. His role may well save an otherwise maybe doomed film.
Black Panther Wakanda Forever is about legacies, and who shouldn’t be forgotten.
Five years feels like a long time to get Black Panther Wakanda Forever out to screen, and the wait is worth it. That’s because Chadwick Boseman passed away and the screenplay had to be retooled to not only honour this actor but also recognise the legacy he left behind. I had huge expectations, and was not disappointed.
The world is less one hero, and part of the plot concerns how to move on. A year has passed since T’Challa’s death. Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) lost her son and has no time to cry, and Princess Shuri (Letitia Wright) is burying herself in her work, trying to regrow the flower destroyed from the first film. Those who consume its nectar gain the power of the Black Panther.
Meanwhile, other nations are making a power play. They want Vibranium, a rare metal which helped this nation turn into the superpower that it is. However, Queen Ramonda says no and warns that nations will go to war to possess and use its power not for the greater good–much like everything the introduction from the first film revealed. This country even fought for it until the tribes finally united.
What’s done so far in Moon Knight is a delicate balance between what the mythology represents to moments of crazy superheroics.
Disney+ Debuting: March 30, 2022
Oscar Issac is not only the supervillain Apocalypse but also the masked superhero Moon Knight in two (finally united) Marvel Comics Cinematic Universe properties. Both have very loose Ancient Egyptian connections, and this actor is terrific at making us believe he has multiple personalities. Technically, his character has a dissociative identity disorder, and just how many he has would be telling.
In the first episode. Steven Grant isn’t sure about what’s going on with his life. He’s prone to black outs and has to live in seclusion because he fears something is out to get him–or rather, dreads what happens when he’s asleep. He works at the British Museum as a gift shop clerk. His mates at work don’t pay him any heed, and more often than not, step all over him.
In what’s currently known about this film is that Doctor Strange plays an important role. He’s seen all the variations of past, present and future and understands what must transpire to protect his native dimension.

Spider-Man will face his greatest challenge as the live-action multiverse is confirmed! Fans of Sony’s franchise got a tease with Into the Spider-Verse in 2018, and since then, just what’s next is anyone’s guess. Early last week, Variety reported about Alfred Molina (Doctor Ock) making a return. On the list includes Jamie Foxx (Electro) and all I can think of is: Sinister Six! We’ve seen The Vulture, Rhino and Sandman in past versions of the trilogy, but will they appear? The next film is only in the planning/screen-writing phase.
Over on Skynews, the report about Andrew Garfield, Kirsten Dunst and Emma Stone also appearing is as exciting. All we need is the negotiations to bring Tobey Maguire to go well, otherwise script revisions may be in order.
It’s hard to say if the other Spider-Mans from the other universes–the past two trilogies–will play throughout the movie or they are here for a bit part. The screenplay is still being worked on. However, when compared to the television Crisis of Infinite Earths crossover on TheCW, I’m hoping they get over 10-15 minutes of screen time.
What we see in Spider-Man Far From Home is pure comic book joy. The big moments are taken right from the books and various Spider-Man cartoons and they were wildly imaginative.
Spider-man: Far From Home is an action-packed fun-filled ride that’s less about being an epilogue to Avengers Endgame and more about Peter Parker (Tom Holland) growing up. The explanations of those returning from nothing gets explained very conveniently and felt more like a tacked on response.
At the same time, this movie also very similar to the first one as Petey leaves New York to stay with the decathlon team when trouble keeps on showing up–whether he likes it or not! (and also tries to get used to new Spidey suits)
Just who disappeared in the main and supporting cast of Sony’s Spider-Man universe show no trauma of being displaced. We know from the main Marvel Cinematic Universe films that people were emotionally affected by the sudden disappearances. The discourse in Far From Home went by too fast before jumping into a story about a small group of high school students going on summer vacation.
