All 53 Marvel Movies Ranked, Including ‘Venom’ and ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

With over 30 years of theatrically released Marvel movies, it’s always a good a time to rank ‘em all, from “Howard the Duck” to this year’s “Black Panther,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Deadpool 2,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “Venom

53. “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”

It’s just a nightmare. A total nightmare. There have been a bunch of bad superhero movies, but this one transcends bad.

52. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine

A totally chaotic stir fry of nonsense that tells the story of how Wolverine got his claws. Features a version of Deadpool that has his mouth stapled shut, which should tell you all you need to know about it.

That five minutes where they tried to turn Jennifer Garner into an action star really didn’t work out well, huh.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Will Not Feature A Stan Lee Cameo

Fans are still reeling from the sad news that legendary Marvel creator Stan Lee passed away yesterday at the grand age of 95. It’ll be hard to come to terms with the fact that we won’t see Stan The Man show up for a welcome cameo in Marvel movies in the future, but thankfully, Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has suggested that Lee already filmed a few cameos for next year’s McU outings which we can look forward to.

However, don’t expect to see Lee show up in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The pic based on the mutant super-team co-created by Stan won’t feature the customary cameo from the Marvel icon, according to EW, as the tale of Jean Grey’s descent into the dangerous Dark Phoenix entity will be “taking a more grounded, gritty approach.”

We can certainly see the logic here, as Lee’s cameos typically

Kevin Feige Recalls His First Time Meeting Stan Lee On X-Men Set

Kevin Feige has a long history of bringing Marvel comics to the screen that goes back beyond the launch of the McU to his work as associate producer on 2000’s X-Men. It’s here that the Marvel Studios head met the man who helped lay the foundations for so much of the work Feige would go on to do, and in an interview with Deadline, he reflected on this first encounter with the late Stan Lee.

The original X-Men movie would kick off the tradition of Lee getting cameos in every major Marvel film, and when Feige had his first meeting with the legendary writer on the set, he saw an energy in the figure that would stay in him right up until his final days.

“Every meeting with Stan Lee was better than the last,” Feige told Deadline. “That’s been true from the first time I met him

Watch Marvel’s Incredibly Touching Tribute Video To Stan Lee

Stan Lee was a unique creative force and his characters are famous worldwide, adored by practically every living generation and currently the biggest box office draw on the planet. With his death yesterday, many are taking stock of the total creative output in his lifetime, concluding that perhaps not since Walt Disney has one man’s creative vision influenced the world of entertainment so greatly. And now, in one of the best tributes I’ve seen to date, Marvel Entertainment has released a video explaining exactly what he meant to the company.

Opening with footage of Stan Lee speaking to the camera in 1968 (it’s surreal seeing him this young), we gradually move through photographs and videos of his life while contemporary forces at Marvel talk about their experiences with Lee, including Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, Senior Vice President Tom Brevoort, President of Marvel Entertainment Dan Buckley and Sana Amanat,

Here’s Every Single Stan Lee Marvel Cameo

  • Variety
Here’s Every Single Stan Lee Marvel Cameo
Stan Lee was a God to fans of comic books and superhero movies around the world, and many viewed Lee’s short-but-sweet cameos as the best parts of Marvel films. As a tribute to the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics, who died at age 95 on Monday, we’ve compiled a list of all his cameos in the Marvel universe.

The Trial of the Incredible Hulk” (1989)

Lee made his first cameo nearly 30 years ago in the TV movie, as a jury member in “David” Banner’s (Hulk’s alter-ego) imagined trial.

X-Men” (2000)

Stan Lee’s feature film cameo (unfortunately his “Blade” appearance was left on the cutting room floor) was in the premiere “X-Men” flick. Fans spotted him selling hot dogs on the beach while the recently transformed Senator Kelly emerges from the waves.

“Spider-Man” (2002)

When the Green Goblin causes an explosion, Lee was the bystander who shields a young girl from debris.

Venom Smashes New Domestic Box Office Milestone

Venom continues to gobble up one box office milestone after another.

At $545 million strong, the Sony-backed Spidey spinoff movie has proved to be, dare we say it, critic-proof, as a 29 percent Tomatometer score has had no tangible impact on the film’s performance. Case in point, as highlighted by Box Office Report (h/t ComicBook.com), Venom‘s domestic haul has now surpassed the $200 million milestone which, in the crowded month of October, is an achievement in and of itself.

Between Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star is Born and the deliciously R-rated Halloween sequel, October delivered a record $820 million at the domestic box office – $200 million of which now belongs to Venom after its 33-day theatrical run. And those numbers will only continue to climb over the coming days.

Here’s the official word via Twitter:

Venom passed the $200M domestic mark after grossing $1.03M on Tuesday. 33-Day total stands at $200.33M.

Thomas Haden Church reportedly playing Lobster Johnson in Hellboy

Having portrayed the character of Flint Marko / Sandman in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, actor Thomas Haden Church revealed earlier this year that he’d shot a secret role in a comic book movie, and if a report from Discussing Film is accurate, it seems that secret has now been revealed.

According to the site, the film in question is the upcoming Hellboy reboot from Lionsgate, with Church reportedly playing the classic fan favourite Hellboy character Lobster Johnson.

Created by Mike Mignola, Lobster Johnson was a vigilante from the 1930s who operated in secret, and had a reputation for brutality and violence, often killing mobsters and burning his trademark lobster claw symbol into their foreheads. He was killed during a mission against the Nazis in 1939, but returns even more powerful as a ghost, working with Hellboy and the Bprd on a number of missions.

Thomas Haden Church Reportedly Plays Lobster Johnson in The Hellboy Reboot

Spider-Man 3 and Sideways star Thomas Haden Church was reportedly cast is director Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot. According to Discussing Film, Church will take on the pulp era vigilante Lobster Johnson.

Apparently Haden Church previously teased the role earlier this year during an interview with JoBlo. Church was asked if he would ever return to the superhero movie genre after playing Sandman in Spider-Man 3 and this was his response:

“I’m not supposed to talk about it, but I actually have returned, but not in the Marvel world, it’s another world, but it is in that genre of superheroes and supervillains. I’m not supposed to talk about it, it’s a movie I shot last year. They’re trying to keep it-and good luck to ‘em-with, y’know, today man, I’m surprised it hasn’t already kinda been revealed.”

Hellboy Gets Thomas Haden Church as Lobster Johnson?

Hellboy Gets Thomas Haden Church as Lobster Johnson?
Thomas Haden Church is reportedly portraying Lobster Johnson, aka the Lobster in the Hellboy reboot. Mike Mignola created the character in 1993 for the comics and he was first seen on the small screen in the second animated Hellboy film, Blood and Iron. Hellboy fans were hoping that the footage that was shown at Nycc would hit the internet straight afterwards, but sadly, that has not been the case. Reactions to the footage were overwhelmingly positive, hyping fans that weren't able to make it out to this year's Nycc. With that being said, the first trailer should be dropping soon.

Thomas Haden Church recently spoke about comic book movies. In an interview from earlier this year, the actor was asked about making a return to the superhero genre after appearing as Sandman in Spider-Man 3. Church revealed that he actually had just filmed for a new secret superhero movie. He explains.

Review: Venom (2018)

Ever felt like you are a bit out of the loop? Sat there in the cinema about to watch a film people have called the worst of the worst and then, the lights go down, the titles go up and by the time the lights come back on you are left a tad puzzled. Not only is this film not the worst of the year but it’s actually really fun. We all know that, nowadays, ‘fun’ is film critic code for shallow, horrible and disastrous but what is wrong with enjoying yourself. Enter Venom, based on the comic book character that originated as a Spider-Man villain in the comics back in the late 1980s, this new film from Sony is the start of their own Marvel universe which, optimistically, they hope may at some point intertwine with Disney’s McU.

Well after the scathing reviews, that outcome may be

Hilarious New Meme Says Tobey Maguire Caused The Avengers: Infinity War Snap

In 2007’s Spider-Man 3, Peter Parker let out his dark side, and the results were almost unbelievably goofy. But thanks to this new Gif posted to Reddit, Tobey Maguire’s strut through New York has been given a sinister new context, intermingling this footage with the genocidal climax of Avengers: Infinity War to suggest that Emo Peter was a lot more dangerous than we gave him credit for.

In the Sam Raimi film, Peter’s affected by an alien symbiote, causing the web-slinger’s personality to take a turn for the evil as he engaged in such malevolent deeds as eating too many cookies, dancing like a dork and apparently killing off McU characters with the mere snap of his fingers. Once Peter rids himself of this parasite, the symbiote passes on to a certain Eddie Brock, resulting in a live-action Venom that even the movie’s producer isn’t too fond of.

Split Second: the Unofficial Venom Movie You (Probably) Didn’t Know About

Padraig Cotter Oct 18, 2018

The closest you’ll get to an R-rated Venom movie this month.

Dick Durkin: I don't think this thing thinks it's Satan, I think this thing Is Satan.

Stone: Well Satan is in deep s***!

Venom is one of the most recognizable comic-book villains of all time, but its fair to say he hasn't had a smooth ride on the big screen. Sam Raimi's noted distaste for the character didn't bode well when the studio insisted he include Venom as an antagonist in Spider-Man 3. While using the symbiote as a means to explore Peter Parker's dark side was intriguing, Topher Grace's take on Venom proved majorly disappointing to many. Raimi has since admitted he just didn't get the appeal of the character, and a planned solo movie was scrapped.

Channing Tatum was rumored to be interested in taking on a Venom movie during The Amazing Spider-Man era,

Movie Review – Venom (2018)

Venom, 2018.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer.

Starring Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze, Michelle Lee, Sope Aluko, Reid Scott, Sam Medina, Jared Bankens, Wayne Pére, and Woody Harrelson.

Synopsis

When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego “Venom” to save his life.

Venom’s journey to the big screen hasn’t been easy. With the best forgotten appearance in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 and the various production issues that this 2018 version has had, it arrives with more of a whimper than a bang.

Tom Hardy plays Eddie Brock an investigative reporter who is trying to take down shady scientist Carlton Drake (Ahmed). After breaking into Drake’s lab with the help of scientist Dora Skith (Slate), Eddie gets infected by the symbiote Venom and they have to work together to take out the bad guy.

7 McU, 7 Sony, And 7 Fox Marvel Characters That Hurt Their Movies

Ever since Fox's hit film X-Men was released in theaters in 2000, Marvel superheroes have dominated the box office. 20th Century Fox, Sony and Marvel Studios have given us countless films featuring some of our all-time favorite comic book heroes and villains, and an incredible seventeen films featuring Marvel characters are in the Top 100 Worldwide Box Office Grosses of all time. Though the vast majority of Marvel films have been successful both financially and critically, an unfortunate few received incredibly negative reviews and struggled to garner the popularity of their studio's other Marvel entries. Even the most dedicated fans have a hard time saying positive things about the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Thor: The Dark World, Fox's Fantastic Four or Sony's Spider-Man 3, proving that even the massively popular superhero genre can suffer from standard film problems like poor writing, cheap special effects, questionable casting and frustrating characters who make their films a little less enjoyable.

‘Venom’ Flies To Near $90M; ‘A Star Is Born’ Has Rhythm With $51M As Monday Fall Holidays Propel Box Office

‘Venom’ Flies To Near $90M; ‘A Star Is Born’ Has Rhythm With $51M As Monday Fall Holidays Propel Box Office
Monday Am: A Columbus Day holiday in the Northeast and Canada’s Thanksgiving fired up yesterday’s grosses with Sony’s Venom grossing $9.6M, a record for a Monday in October besting Gravity‘s Columbus Day Monday of $6.2M, while Warner Bros.A Star Is Born remained at a sharp pitch with $6.8M. Venom is now just under $90M through four days ($89.9M) surpassing all expectations, ditto for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s music drama which with Tuesday and Wednesday previews stands at $51M.

Yesterday’s box office was aided by 42% K-12 schools off in addition to 16% colleges per ComScore.

Venom came in ahead of its Fss $80M projection reported on Sunday with $80.2M, ditto for A Star Is Born which filed $42.9M. Both films lead all titles to the best October weekend ever at the box office with $177.7M, outstripping the previous record October weekend in 2015 when The Martian

Venom: 25 Crazy Fan Redesigns Better Than The Movies

Venom opened last Thursday to lukewarm reviews, with critics citing the movie’s lack of logic and weak character development, leading to an approval rating of 32% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, fans have been disagreeing with the critics, and the movie has broken the October opening weekend record by more than $20 million as a result.

The movie’s popularity is hardly a surprise, though. The symbiote has had a large following ever since its introduction as Spider-Man’s enemy in the Marvel comics back in 1984. Eddie Brock made his cinematic debut back in 2007 in Spider-Man 3 and the Venom symbiote made a cameo appearance in the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But this standalone film in Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters marks the villain’s biggest mainstream break yet.

The Venom symbiote’s first host in the Marvel universe is Spider-Man, and is initially a sentient alien costume, but

These Are The Most Brutal Reviews That Venom Received

The new Venom movie may be celebrating a hugely successful opening weekend, but it hasn’t fared nearly as well with the critics, who currently have the film’s Rotten Tomatoes score at a measly 30%.

While that still suggests half-decent reviews from almost a third of documented reviewers, this ratio certainly leaves Eddie Brock’s first standalone movie heavily lacking when placed alongside any of the character’s comic book kin in the McU. What’s more, a lot of the critics who didn’t like Venom, really didn’t like Venom, and so Screen Rant has compiled a list of the most brutal write-ups received by the Tom Hardy flick.

Look below for some of the harshest takes that the internet has to offer:

“Venom” is the kind of comic-book movie that people who hate comic-book movies think that all comic-book movies are like. Leaping
