Two trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming have been released, and they look pretty cool! (Yes, I'm a Marvel fanatic.)

anyone here has watched the 2006 documentary Look, Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman?

They show it this Wednesday and I wonder if it's worth it.

PS here is a link to the Wikipedia entry for the documentary.

Honestly they just need to stop trying to cram too much into each film.

Batman v Superman had potential but had way too much going on, especially in the shorter theatrical version. There was no time to flesh out the story.

Same with Suicide Squad, way too many characters, not enough screen time for everyone. They should have started with a proper Harley Quinn/Joker/Deadshot movie, then followed it up with a full Suicide Squad film in which they could give more spotlight to the other, more obscure characters.

There are a lot of good ideas, but too many cooks in the proverbial kitchen.

those were my thoughts exactly, BvS was an entertaining movie but the execution of the movie in terms of storytelling was pretty poor. Suicide Squad imo, was just crap.

It'll be interesting to see how well Wonder Woman and Justice League will be

Wonder Woman was great. Best comic book movie since Cap Am 2.  It had a very nice mix of humor, action, and heart.

Wife wanted to watch Wonderwoman and almost everyone I heard said it was great. I find it totally unwatchable.  Just horrible. Maybe for the next super hero movies they can put Aqua Man in the Civil War and Flash could come from Vietnam or something. Horrible paper thin "plot." Terrible never ending fight scenes. I can't believe people like this movie but they do. Seems specifically designed for the Nascar crowd and feminists that needed an excuse to spend a buck.

I thought Black Panther was awesome. Maybe itís recent bias, but I think itís my favorite superhero movie since Captain America 2.

There are 2 after-credit scenes. One is fairly generic, the other sets things up a bit for Infinity War.

Black Panther has passed Titanic and is now the third highest grossing movie of all time (without adjusting for inflation) and is the highest grossing superhero movie of all time. It looks like it'll probably settle in as third, the gap to Avatar is just too big.

I like Black Panther and feel that it's very well done, but I've seen it only once, so I'll have to see it at least once more before I can figure out where I'd rank it among the MCU movies.

At the moment, I think there are several MCU movies I like even more, including Thor: Ragnarok, both Captain America movies, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, and both Avengers movies.

As for the DC movies, I like Wonder Woman the best so faróin fact, I feel it's the only DC movie so far that's been done well. Justice League was okay, a little disappointing.

I'm really looking forward to Infinity War, even though I'm sure at least one hero is going to die, and that's really gonna bum me out, especially if it's Cap or Iron Man.
