Monday Musings: Shonda Rhimes and Superheroes

Monday Musings returns with some various superhero articles and with Shonda Rhimes answering 10 questions. Check it all out below.

10 Questions with Shonda

We recently decided to put the boss on the spot and ask her a few questions — because when it comes to Shonda, we’ll take whatever life wisdom we can get.

Head over to Shondaland to watch Shonda Rhimes answer 10 questions. It’s a fun, quick watch and you should just check out the site in general. There’s a lot of good stuff on there.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ injects life into Marvel’s most stagnant Avenger

From a production standpoint, Ragnarok may be the truest and most gorgeous realization of comic creator Jack Kirby’s vision of cosmic scenery, complete with starkly contrasting colors, hard angles, and circular designs adorning everything. It lends the film a retrofuturistic aesthetic complemented by the synth-heavy soundtrack, bringing us to a time when comics were appreciated for the fanciful flights of speculative science fiction Marvel created at their twentieth century height.

Leigh Monson reviewed Thor: Ragnarok for Substream. I have yet to see the movie, but this review solidifies just how much I’d like to go see it. Disclaimer: Leigh is my film editor whenever I contribute to Substream. But this is still good regardless of that fact.

50 Best Superhero Movies of All Time

Half of the top 10 are superhero movies, and by year’s end, the recently released Thor: Ragnarok and the soon-to-be-released Justice League will almost certainly make their way in there. Next year, you can safely bet that Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Venom, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and Aquaman will crack 2018’s top 10, or at least get pretty close.

The Ringer ranked 50 superhero movies and now feels like a great time to do something like this. Justice League is on it’s way this week and Thor: Ragnarok is still being talked about.
