There was a point in Captain America: The Winter Soldier where I decided that the movie could do no wrong. The movie had already established the relationship between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Sam Wilson (Antony Mackie) rather effortlessly in the opening minutes of the film. Knowing the kinship that Captain America had with his sidekick known as “The Falcon” in the comics, this would be an important element of the story. And it looked as if directors Anthony and Joe Russo, along with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely were saying “we got this.” The movie would...

He may have been the only Thor sporting a boot on Halloween, but there is no arguing Blackhawks defenseman Michael Kostka's uncanny resemblance to the God of Thunder - the Marvel version, anyway. "I think that started maybe [the] beginning of last year [in Toronto]," he said. "A few people said it to me on the street. Now it's kind of funny. I think I get recognized more for the guy who looks like him than a professional hockey player. " Kostka, who is out with a lower body injury, had been a good fit for the Hawks prior to being sidelined (one goal in two games played)

I have bad news about the new Marvel Comics blockbuster “Avengers”: it is a totally unrealistic film. After seeing it on Saturday while sitting behind, in front of, and next to every annoying four-year-old in Chicago, I went home and immediately began to compile a thorough, unreproachable fact-check list of the errors that riddled the film. Some of these are unbelievably egregious, and I've listed the worst offenders below. 1) There is no such thing as a Tesseract. The film's central premise is that a group of superheroes must stop an evil alien-god named Loki...

**1/2 (out of four) From my left shoulder, a tiny, excited voice makes its case: “This movie's great! There's Robert Downey Jr. being snarky and Scarlett Johansson kicking the ass of someone who's eyeing hers and special effects that totally make it look like the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) jumps through the sky. What more do you want?” Then, from the other shoulder: “Yes, but did you notice all that down time in the middle? When one conversation follows another conversation follows another conversation, in a 143-minute movie that actually doesn't have that much...

With the stunning success of Marvel's The Avengers at the box-office, comic book nerds are buzzing with excitement over how their favorite super-team was received. It should go without saying that the movie had more than just comic-book fans lining up to see it. Sure, there were fan-boys and fan-girls a-plenty, but there were also many, many casual fans who wanted to see what all the hubbub was about. And many of these casual fans were walking out of the theater with a new-found appreciation for comic-book based movies, which warms the cockles of my...

So the 2014 Winter Olympics are over, and you're probably moping a lot. When you get home, you can't flop on your couch and flip on the sport of the moment anymore. The updates aren't on TV every day, and your Twitter feed is seemingly bare without news of who won medals. What are you going to do without all that drama? Unfortunately, the scandals, upsets, comebacks and record-breaking stories of the Games are gone for two years. On the bright side, you can get all those elements right here in Chicago.

Earlier this fall, “Hart of Dixie” actor Wilson Bethel wrote on Twitter that he was “glistening like a Christmas ham” for an upcoming episode. Bethel, who plays bad boy Wade Kinsella in the CW series, seemed a little embarrassed while talking about being shirtless for so much of the episode, but said that it makes sense within the story and is used with a great sense of humor.   “It doesn't really enter into the realm of being egregiously ridiculous,” he told me shortly after filming the episode.
