Comment by Dr. Loomis (Cinema Releases February 16 2018)

If you are a Marvel fan then no doubt you are really excited with the release of the latest film, Black Panther. Personally these movies are not for me and just like Star Wars I have to ask the question do we not need to slow down the amount of Marvel movies coming out.

I’ve already stated my Star Wars fatigue but the sheer amount of superhero films that have come out in the last few years is astonishing.

In any case there’s nothing I would consider going to see at my local cinema this week.
