Back in the noughties, Pixar went on the sort of golden run that other studios could only dream of. Monsters, Inc, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Up… Every one innovative, every one an instant classic.
These days Pixar’s Disney stablemate Marvel is on a similarly hot run of form. Okay, there have been a couple of misfires (the decidedly average Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age Of Ultron spring to mind), but otherwise the house that Tony Stark built has evolved into a remarkable blockbuster machine.
So with the brilliant Captain America: Civil War now in cinemas (read our five-star review on p92), we thought it was a good time to look ahead to what’s coming next from the MCU. We tell you everything you need to know about Benedict Cumberbatch’s arrival as the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange (p44), and run down all the other Marvel movies and TV shows heading your way.
Plus, we don’t know what possessed us, but we’ve decided to go behind the scenes of three spooky exorcism-themed dramas: The Conjuring 2 (p68), Outcast (p72) and The Living And The Dead (p76). We don’t think there are any actual demons lurking in the pages of the mag, but if one of them pops out and tells you to subscribe, it’s probably best to listen – you can find out how on p36.
