Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home is the final chapter of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will see the Webslinger dealing with the fallout of Avengers: Endgame. Many of the founding Avengers have moved on one way or another, with some of them passing on the mantle and title to other heroes. And based on the latest trailer, Spidey will be one of those heroes. And before he can take on those responsibilities, he will be going on a European vacation.

Which is abruptly interrupted when Spidey (Tom Holland) is recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to join Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal), who just so happens to be from another universe. Together, they must deal with a new elemental threat that comes from Beck’s Earth. While many believed that Beck was using his Mysterio persona and knack for using Hollywood special effects, as well as smoke and mirrors, to pull off his crimes, director Jon Watts seems to hint that Beck isn’t the same person that we know him to be. Check out what he had to say below.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man (Tom Holland) will have a much bigger responsibility in the MCU than being a Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man after the events of Avengers: Endgame. But before he can assume those responsibilities, he will go on vacation in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Which sounds fun. That is until Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) turns it into a world-saving mission. Now he must face new elemental threats that pose a danger to his world, and the only person that could help him is Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal), a person with mystical powers who is very familiar with these creatures. Oh, did I mention that Beck hints that he is from another world?

Check out the new trailer here below.

‘Captain Marvel’ Interview: Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck Talk Marvel’s First Female Standalone and ’90s Nostalgia

Though there have been many strong female characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel is the first time that Marvel Studios brings its fans a female superhero standalone film. The film sees Brie Larson play Carol Danvers, a highly skilled soldier of Star Force, an elite Kree peacekeeping force, separated from her troop when she crash lands on the planet Earth. Determined to reunite with her team, she soon discovers that she has a deep connection with this planet, and starts to search for the clues that could help unlock the memories of her mysterious past.

We were invited to attend the Captain Marvel press junket with our fellow journalists to talk to Larson, Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), and Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva). Additionally, MCU alum members Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) also attended to chat about appearing in the upcoming film.

As much as this is a continuation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel holds so much more meaning for the studio. It’s Marvel Studios’ first female standalone film, and one with such an empowering message and a character who will be a symbol of inspiration to everyone, especially young girls. And that would not have been possible without directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who took their character-driven story approach to the upcoming film. Find out more about their leap from small films to Marvel Studio blockbuster tentpoles below.

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel
Director: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck
Writers: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Jac Schaeffer
Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, Jude Law
Studio: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 124 Minutes
Release Date: March 8, 2019

Marvel Studios has come an incredibly long way since they released Iron Man back in 2008. Since then, they’ve firmly established their dominance at the box office and built a very secure fanbase while also expanding their Marvel Cinematic Universe. But even though there are strong female characters within this shared universe, none have actually led a standalone film. That is until now. Now, we have Captain Marvel, a supercharged film that takes flight from the moment it starts and never looks back.

It’s a truly visually stunning effort that has a lot of fun with some 90’s nostalgic vibes and nods to previous Marvel Studio efforts. But it’s something so much more at the same time. This film will be something that inspires and empowers females and young girls to fly higher, further, and faster than they ever did before. Check out my full review of the film here below.

When Marvel Studios releases Captain Marvel this week, you can expect audiences to have their full attention on the title character as she lights up the screen. However, there’s one particular character that might steal the show: an orange cat named Goose. But don’t let his appearance fool you — Goose is actually a flerken, a mighty and powerful alien that just happens to look like a feline.

Geeks of Doom was invited to attend the Captain Marvel press conference, where Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) talked about what it was like to work with a “snack-oriented” cat and his three other stunt doubles, as well as letting a cat do their thing while filming, and how the cats demanded respect.

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Captain Marvel

Set in the 1990s and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who arrives on the planet Earth after engaging in a fight against the Skrulls. Separated from her team, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) will help Carol find the answers she is looking for and help prevent the war between the Kree and the Skrulls from reaching their planet.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast and crew of Captain Marvel. There, both Jackson and Gregg talked about working with de-aging film technology, what it took to convince them to return, and what piece of ’90s nostalgia they would like to see make a comeback. Check out what the two had to say below.

Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be their cinematic shining example of female empowerment. Literally. The character, who just glows with photon power, will be making her big debut come early March when her first standalone film is released. In it, Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers, a noble warrior hero of the Kree’s peacekeeping military force, Starforce. But when a mission goes bad, she finds herself on Earth, where the enemy Skrulls have already infiltrated. Determined to stop them, she learns that she may have had a past life on this planet. On her journey of self-discovery, she comes to find out that she may have had more power in herself than she originally thought.

We were fortunate enough to sit down with our fellow journalists at a press conference in LA, where Larson, along with Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) chatted about the film.

Check out what Larson had to say about finding that inner strength to become Captain Marvel and why it is so important to push for more inclusivity below.
