Hello all once again... Toni here for another episode of Stuff We Like, where I'm sharing my love of Marvel Movies.
I'm probably going to cop shit from my fellow Mischiefers for declaring this, but I've never read a single Marvel or DC comic. That being said, I LOVE the movies.
Now I know the movies aren't perfect, I've heard about all the things that my friends haven't liked because they differ from the comics. And that's okay. You're never going to please everyone, no matter how hard you try. But for someone who hasn't read the comics and loves to watch movies for the entertainment value, the Marvel universe ticks all my boxes.
I really enjoy the strong female characters of Black Widow and Gamora. And seriously, who can pass up the beautiful bounty of Chris's on offer? Evans, Pratt and the stunningly gorgeous Aussie (I might be a little biased) Hemsworth, will have me going back to the movies time and time again.
My Daughter also is a massive fan of all things Marvel and got quite excited when I told her what I was planning on writing about in this post. She hasn't seen the original X-Men movies yet, but rest assured I'll be fixing that as soon as possible.
Marvel has a massive line up of movies for its fans in 2016 and I for one am so excited. The next installment from Captain America: Civil War, releases in May, along with X-Men: Apocalypse. Dr Strange is also set to hit the big screen in the second half of the year.
The movie I'm most looking forward to though? Has to be DEADPOOL!!! Oh My God. Can I just say that the marketing team for this movie has gone above and beyond anything I've ever seen before for a movie. They are nothing but pure geniuses.
One of the good things about living in Australia is the fact that Deadpool releases here a day earlier than in the USA (I am not poking my tongue out at you all, I swear)... I have my tickets booked for tomorrow night already and can't wait to see it.
The US movie is rate R18+, where as here is Australia it's only been given a rating of MA15+. I hope this means us Aussies are simply a tougher crowd then the Americans and it takes a lot more for us to be offended, and not that they've cut scenes in the movie to cater to a younger crowd. I guess we'll find out soon. Either way it looks to be a great movie.
Are you a fan of the Marvel Universe or DC Comics movies? I'd love to know which character/movie is your favourite. What movie are you most looking forward to being released in 2016? Until next time...
