The Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2 follows the Parr family as they enter a new phase in their lives. Helen Parr aka Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) takes up a new superhero job, leaving her husband Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) to hold down the fort in their new home. But he soon discovers that fatherhood isn’t as easy as it looks. Dash (Huck Milner) has trouble with his math homework. Violet (Sarah Vowell) has a crush on a boy, who had his memory wiped. And Jack-Jack has developed new powers. All of this is happening as Elastagirl is investigating a new villain who is bent on controlling the world through media screens.

So as Mr. Incredible is trying to live up to his name as a father, he will get some big help from his friend Frozone. Samuel L. Jackson returns to reprise the cool and icy hero. If his role in this and the Marvel Cinematic Universe tell us anything, it’s that he plays characters that are the glue that binds his superhero families together. Whether it’s the father-figure in The Avengers or the surrogate uncle Frozone in Incredibles 2, you can always rely on his character to be there.

We were invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Jackson, the cast, and director Brad Bird about their experience on the sequel. Check out what Jackson had to say about his parental-like roles in Incredibles 2 and The Avengers, and if kids recognize if he’s Frozone, below.

The Incredibles is that perfect blend of fun and nostalgia. It’s that call back to a time where things were much simpler, but there was still a world that needed saving. There was no social media. Fun actually consisted of going outside and getting fresh air. And yet, the themes explored in that film still felt very relevant to the time of its release. Insecurities, loss, family. Everything about it was signature Pixar. Those poignant themes mixed in with a whole lot of fun. And who doesn’t love a good superhero movie?

Flash forward 14 years later. Superhero movies are now all too common. There are those who are worried about superhero fatigue. Some even roll their eyes at the fact that another is released or are shocked that there is a sequel. But not so much with Incredibles 2. It’s the sequel everyone is waiting for. The entire cast is back for this animated feature and with Brad Bird at the director’s helm for a sequel that proves good things come to those who wait.

Check out my full review here below.

Captain Marvel concept art

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be a period piece that takes us back to the 1990s. In it, we will see Academy Award winner Brie Larson play as Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who is endowed with cosmic alien powers and gets caught up in an intergalactic war between two alien races. But it’s not so much about the film’s plot or setting as it is who we will be seeing again. Seeing again as in, characters who we thought wouldn’t appear on screen ever again, are returning to the MCU once more. Just in a different timeline.

We know that Nick Fury is in this, so it only makes sense that Clark Gregg would return to reprise his role as Agent Phil Coulson. And because the film is about the war between the Kree and the Skrull, Lee Pace will be reprising his role as Ronan. More on this and a brand new photo, below.

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Draw Inspiration From ’90s Films Like ‘Terminator 2’

Brie Larson Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios is making a shift in representation. The superhero studio took their first steps by releasing Black Panther, their first superhero film with a person of color as the lead. So far, the film has grossed over $1 billion worldwide in less than a month, and it’s obvious that the studio will follow that pattern and change in accordance to the social changes. And just as Black Panther was their first for people of color, Captain Marvel will be their first female-led superhero film. Set to be released in March 2019, the film sees Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) go from human to superhuman fighting the alien Skrulls. It will also be the first Marvel film to be set in the ’90s. Larson will be joined by Samuel L. Jackson, who will reprise his role as Nick Fury.

Now, just as Avengers: Infinity War is about to be released, we are learning more about some of the upcoming titles coming after the epic ensemble film. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke recently about representation and Captain Marvel, including films that helped inspire it like Terminator 2. Check out more on the story below.

Incredibles 2

You have to give credit to movie studio marketing teams for taking advantage of a current hot trend to push their upcoming film. Take for example the Google Arts and Culture app feature “Search With Your Selfie,” which allows users to discover art that closely resembles the selfie they just took.

Now imagine Disney and Pixar implementing that with the cast of The Incredibles 2. To help announce the key cast members of the film, Disney has released a new set of images featuring the voice cast voice cast side-by-side with images of their characters done in the likeness of the app that everyone is talking about. In addition to the images, descriptions of the characters have also been shared.

Incredibles 2

It’s still very surprising that it has taken us this long to get The Incredibles 2. With Pixar already releasing sequels and prequels to many of their titles, a sequel to The Incredibles is long overdue. But now we are getting one. And the recent teases that have appeared at D23 and the official teaser that dropped during Coco, hints at the Parr family adjusting to their new lives while also trying to figure out how to raise Jack-Jack, whose powers aren’t fully formed.

Now we are getting a better sense of what that family life is like for the Parrs in a brand new image that shows them in full costume — all of them, including Jack-Jack. Check out the new image here below.
