Jul 13 2015

Iron Man, Thor, Captain America …… they’ve all become familiar faces in cinemas over the past couple of years, as the Marvel universe rolls out blockbuster after blockbuster. But super heroes don’t come in just a variety of shapes: they come in different sizes as well, as the latest one shows.

Ant-Man, easily the most diminutive super hero of them all, arrives in cinemas this Friday, 17th, certificate 12A. You may have heard London Mums’ film critic, Freda Cooper, and Monica Costa looking forward to the film in the latest edition of the Talking Pictures podcast, https://soundcloud.com/freda-14/talkingpictures9july2015.  And now it’s time for Freda to find out if there’s more to him than just an ant-i-hero.

Marvel’s Daredevil gets a modern revamp by Netflix

Apr 23 2015

After being at the helm for both this and the first film in the Marvel series, Avengers Assemble (2012), director and writer Joss Whedon has announced he’s stepping away from the franchise.  The next two instalments – Avengers:Infinity War, parts 1 and 2, due in 2018 and 2019, will be in the hands of Anthony and Joe Russo, who also directed Captain America:The Winter Soldier (2014). Having built his reputation on the Avengers, is Whedon going out with a bang?  London Mums’ film critic, Freda Cooper, straps herself in ……..
