Superhero Showdown 2016 – Deadpool vs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice vs Captain America: Civil War vs X-Men: Apocalypse vs Suicide Squad vs Doctor Strange

Gary Collinson on the 2016 superhero box office showdown…

We’re used to seeing three or four superhero movies each year, but 2016 sees Hollywood’s infatuation with costumed heroes making the jump to ludicrous speed with Six superhero movies set to grace the big screen (it would have been seven, had Fox been able to get its act together on Gambit). But which one will come out on top? Here’s our predictions for this year’s Superhero Showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

As always, we’ll get things underway with a quick recap of last year, which saw Marvel bringing the curtain down on Phase Two with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and 20th Century Fox killing the Fantastic Four franchise again with the disasterous reboot from director Josh Trank.

Last Year’s Prediction – “While it should comfortably double the combined take of Ant-Man and The Fantastic Four, »

Hulk Vs. Ant-Man in Coke Mini Super Bowl Commercial

7 February 2016 5:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a number of press outlets were sent a promotional set of Coca-Cola cans featuring Marvel characters such as Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Many assumed that this was a promotion for Captain America: Civil War, although we know that Hulk isn't featured in that movie. These cans actually tease a Marvel/Coca-Cola Super Bowl 50 ad, which isn't for Captain America: Civil War at all, but does feature both Hulk and Ant-Man going toe-to-toe.

As it turns out, there's a good reason Hulk was featured in these new collectable Coke cans, since he's stars in this ad, along with Paul Rudd's Ant-Man. This humorous 60-second commercial shows how angry Hulk gets when people steal his Coca-Cola, and it also presents an interesting dynamic since these characters are by far »

But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team.

Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

6 February 2016 6:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks or Phyllis Brooks or Louise Brooks, »

Heroes Pick A Side In New Batch Of Captain America: Civil War Promo Art

2 February 2016 6:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

A new look at Captain America: Civil War is expected to come during the Super Bowl this weekend, and it’s very long overdue. While we’ve obviously already had a trailer and handful of posters, for the most part it’s been leaked promo art which has been doing the rounds for Marvel’s first Phase 3 release. This latest batch is great of course, but there’s still no sign of Spider-Man!

Will the iconic wall-crawler be revealed in that rumoured TV spot this Sunday? It would certainly be a good place to show off his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut to a huge audience, but it’s also possible that the studio will keep us waiting until nearer the release of Captain America: Civil War or perhaps even until the movie itself.

Regardless, there are some awesome shots of the two teams – Team Cap and »
