FIRST LOOK: Invincible Season 2!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

While many would argue that pop culture has become oversaturated with superhero content, there are still some spectacular stories being told n that highlight the superhero genre still has more to offer. One of those projects is the Amazon Prime animated series Invincible, based on the comic book of the same name from The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman. After only one season, Invincible has already cemented itself as one of the best superhero shows of all time. With stellar performances from an incredible voice cast, shocking twists, and visceral action sequences, Invincible has distinguished itself as the best of the best. Invincible is to superhero stories what Game of Thrones is to fantasy epics. Invincible is well aware that the audience has been exposed to over 20 years of superhero tropes and story beats from countless other movie and TV adaptations, and gleefully subverts those expectations with shocking results. It’s exactly the shot in the arm that the genre needs when even the biggest fans are starting to feel some superhero fatigue.

After Season 1 became a massive hit, Amazon Prime was eager to begin production on more episodes. The animated series was quickly renewed for a second and third season. Season 1 acted as a fantastic adaptation of the source material and having read the comic book series, I can say that we’ve only scratched the surface of Invincible‘s potential. If you think Season 1 was wild, wait till you see the some of the places this story goes next.

With so many fans excited for Season 2, the question on everyone’s mind is, when will we see new episodes premiere on the streaming platform? Well, as you’ll see in the very fun video below, we got our answer. Well, kind of. Take a look for yourself…

As Allen The Alien would say “OK, I’ll take it.“. Sure, would I like to see a Summer 2023 release date instead of a late 2023 release date? Absolutely. But animated series can often take a lot longer to make than live action shows, so I’m just happy that we’re getting Season 2 sometime this year. In the meantime, if you want to check out another unique and subversive superhero show, check out Amazon Prime’s other hit comic book series, The Boys. Invincible and The Boys are two of my favorite shows being produced right now, so odds are if you enjoy one, you’ll probably like the other. Plus, you can be sure that as soon as we have more information on the upcoming season of Invincible, you can count on World’s Best Media to keep you updated!

NEW TRAILER- Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

With Phase 4 of The Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to a close, with either of The Guardians of The Galaxy Christmas Special or Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, depending on who you ask, Phase 5 (wow, Phase FIVE?! Jeez) of The MCU is ready to kick off. The whole thing is starting off with a bang, with Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania! Check out the new trailer below…

For those of you who don’t already know, Kang is a master time traveler, so multiple versions of him exist throughout the timeline and The Multiverse. In fact, we’ve already met a variant of Kang in The MCU when he appeared in Loki Season 1, as He Who Remains.

He Who Remains, from Loki Season 1

Reed Richards of The Fantastic Four, who was briefly introduced in Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness, is actual an ancestor of Kang. We’re going to be seeing a lot more of Marvel’s First Family in the near future. So it’ll be interesting to see how that affects any future MCU projects.

According to the producers, this film will have as large an impact on the future of The MCU as The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Which is a pretty big deal considering that S.H.I.E.L.D. fell in The Winter Soldier and The Avengers were broken, leaving them vulnerable to Thanos in Civil War. That just makes me all the more excited for this movie.

Tom Cruise Is Insane… And That’s Why We Love Him!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Say what you want about Tom Cruise, but that man is determined to die on film for our entertainment. With each Mission: Impossible movie, the insanity of the stunts Tom Cruise performs only increases. Of course, a stunt crew is present, but that’s still really Tom Cruise hanging off the side of huge plane during takeoff. Or scaling the world’s tallest building. Or HALO jumping. Let’s put it this way, the guy who wrote Cruise’s life insurance policy was fired a long time ago. Regardless, as the videos below show, the man knows how to promote a movie. Take a look…

When it comes to pulling off insane stunts and action sequences, it certainly doesn’t hurt that Tom Cruise is batshit crazy. Not to mention the immortality and other abilities granted to him through Scientology. Mission: Impossible is one of the best action franchises of the 21st century, so needless to say Dead Reckoning is high on my list of most anticipated movies of 2023. Check out the trailer below.


A look back at some of the coolest stunts in the series…

Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1 opens July 2023

FIRST LOOK: Hawkeye Disney+ Series Trailer!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Take a look at the the first traIler for the next all-new, live-action MCU series, Hawkeye, premiering November 24th on Disney+! Jeremy Renner returns to the role of Clint Barton, the world famous Avenger known as Hawkeye! When he lost his family in The Snap, Clint went to a pretty dark place. When I say a “dark place”, I mean a full on murderous world tour, butchering the scum of the international underworld as the masked vigilante, Ronin. Finally reunited with his family, Clint is back for another adventure as everyone’s favorite bow and arrow wielding Avenger!

I really love the direction their goiung in with this trailer. It has a great ”Die Hard”, Christmas action movie vibe, which I think is a really fun and interesting way to go with this series.

We finally see finally see fan favorite Kate Bishop make her MCU debut with the perfectly cast Hailee Steinfeld as Clint’s protege. The series looks to be drawing heavily from the modern classic Hawkeye comic book run by Matt Fraction and David Aja, with many of the scenes in the trailer pulled straight off the pages of this spectacular book. If you’ve been looking to jump into reading comics/graphic novels Hawkeye by Fraction and Aja is the perfect jumping on point for readers new to the medium. Check out the links posted below if you want to read it for yourself. It receives my highest recommedation!

PODCAST: AVENGERS:ENDGAME Review (SPOILERS)!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Holy Fuck! Avengers: Endgame is finally here! I wanna say right up front that there will be absolutely NO SPOILERS in this article. However, we go into FULL SPOILERS in our deep dive review of Avengers: Endgame on this episode of The World’s Best Podcast! My Marvel Movie companion, Paul Sr. and I had a chance to see the movie a few days early, but we wanted to wait until at least some of our listeners had a chance to see the film, before we posted this SPOILER-RIFFIC review.

 It so rare for movies to live up to the hype, but Endgame manages to surpass expectations. One of the many things fans love about comics, especially from DC and MARVEL, is the interconnected universes. You could be reading a Spider-Man comic and the X-Men or Iron Man or Daredevil would pop up. That was the ingredient that had been missing from superhero movies when the “Superhero Boom” began with movies like Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Singer’s X-Men

It seems so obvious, but it was still brilliant. I remember seeing Iron Man for the first time and being blown away that SHIELD was in the movie. It seems so small now, in retrospect, but that little addition made it feel like the Marvel Universe (It was also the first appearance of fan favorite character, Agent Phil Coulson). Then of course there’s the immortal post credits scene from the first Iron Man film, when Tony meets Nick Fury which I’ve posted here below:

The beginning…

Building off the incredible success of Iron Man and then creating 22 films that make this beautiful tapestry of a story, is mind blowing. The fact that out of the 22 films released so far, there have been so few missteps is astonishing. Even their weakest movies, and there’s only 3 or 4 like Thor: The Dark World, are pretty good or not bad at their worst. Everything else is more less gold.

The Russo Brothers, who’ve directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and now Avengers: Endgame, absolutely stuck the landing with this movie, it’s a must see. The films directed by The Russo Brothers, Joe and Anthony, aired the 4 best films in The MCU. Who would’ve thought that guys who worked on TV shows like Community would go on to tell some of the most epic stories of our generation? For the record, I loved Community.

The Infinity Stones…

I think the real hero in all of this is Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios. He was not only a massive fan of the source material, but he’d seen what mistakes other Marvel superhero films had made in the past and learned from them. So when it was time for Marvel Studios to start producing their own films, he knew what he was doing and he got the right people involved to work with them. Another huge kudos goes out to Casting Director Sarah Finn, who’s worked on almost all of the films, if not all of them. With maybe one or two exceptions out of literally hundreds, each character was a flawlessly cast. We owe a lot to her work as the reason these films came out so well.
