Major Superhero Movies of 2018 That Were Just Amazing in Many Different Aspects!

This year saw a lot of Hollywood flicks that swayed the audiences with different genres and contents, like every year, but the one category that really ruled the hearts and also the box-office registers, was the superhero genre. And 2018 turned out to be a game changer for the characters with supernatural abilities and powers and, their world altogether.

But there were some major superhero films that were just amazing and turned out to be heavily impactful too, as far as the people and culture are concerned.

Here are the top 4 superhero movies of 2018 that were just amazing and brought a new change for the moviegoers, in many different aspects.

Avengers: Infinity War

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwievZ1Tx-8]
This movie needs no introduction since it’s a history that has created multiple milestones. The most anticipated film of all-time (well now, its Avengers: Endgame nonetheless) that saw fans just going beyond limits, turned out to be a benchmark in terms of creating a memorable ensemble cast into one single film’s storyline!

Everything about Infinity War is so perfectly great that it becomes actually hard to focus on the weak points, as there were mostly none, thanks to the fantastic performances by the entire cast. Also, the duo of Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony, was exceptional in directing a large cast with so much craft, while also keeping the story intriguing throughout the runtime of the film.

Apart from giving the best on-screen supervillain from Marvel, to match DC’s Joker by Heath Ledger, the movie also made the villain heavily impactful who, shockingly, gained more empathy and emotional support from the audiences too! Josh Brolin was praised by everyone for his portrayal of Thanos who decimated half of the universe’s population to bring balance in it.

The movie is currently the third-best movie of all-time, and the best superhero movie of all-time in the box-office history.

Black Panther

Another Marvel movie that not only became a worldwide box-office phenomenon but also became a cultural phenomenon too. It had an all-black cast, which was necessary as far as its storyline and characters were concerned.

The brilliant direction by Ryan Coogler was admired by fans and critics combined. He nailed it on every level, whether it was plot treatment, character development, the relevance of the story and eventually the objective of the film as a whole. It was more than a movie since it was highly needed in a modern time like the one going on currently.

The relationship of a son with his father, and with his brother is showcased in a manner that you really can’t escape it. This movie also gave us the second-best villain from Marvel, after Josh Brolin’s Thanos. Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan, was so greatly portrayed that he swayed the audiences in a huge way.

Lately, Black Panther has gained a big recognition for prestigious awards too. It has been nominated for ‘Best Picture’ in the upcoming Golden Globes 2019. That simply speaks the entire thing about this superhero blockbuster.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg52up16eq0]
The film that has been declared as the best Spider-Man film, in an animated style (and on a general basis too), is about the crossover of different dimensions of different Spider-Man characters, coming together. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which has been directed by three directors, namely Peter Ramsay, Robert Persichetti Jr., and Rodney Rothman, is so greatly executed from the perspective of different ‘Spider characters’, that it becomes a celebration of the comic books themselves, dedicated to the most famous comic book superhero of all-time.

The movie, in fact, feels like a real comic book itself courtesy the VFX and animation styles used by the team behind them.

The introduction of a new Spider-Man ‘protagonist’ character in Miles Morales has successfully managed to connect exceptionally with the audiences and critics too.

Aquaman

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wcj6SrX4zw]
The first underwater adventure taking the moviegoers into the world of Atlantis, the home of Arthur Curry/Aquaman, turned out to be a great surprise for everyone who was skeptical about its story and reactions after its release. But director James Wan succeeded in keeping the audiences in awe of his imagination of great visuals and underwater action sequences, which were so great to look at, on the big screen.

The movie may not be as great as the ‘other three’, mentioned above, but what works for it is the presentation. It has been so intelligently done that the negatives get easily overshadowed. And that’s the biggest win for a movie if it can do that.

Cumberland County Sheriff

A U.S. Army sergeant who fatally shot his pregnant mistress as she drove on a Georgia highway, was arrested in North Carolina.

Alonzo Dargan Jr., 30, was arrested at Fort Bragg in Cumberland County on Thursday.

Dargan was on active duty at Fort Bragg as a staff sergeant, Channel 2 Action News reports.

Dargan is accused of killing Akeila Ware, 29, of LaGrange, Ga., and their unborn child, as she drove on Highway 18 in Troup County, Ga. on Tuesday, October 5.

Dargan has been charged with murder, feticide and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Authorities initially believed Ware was shot during a road rage incident.

After Ware was shot, her bullet-riddled Honda Accord veered off the highway and crashed near E. Drummond Road.

Georgia State Patrol troopers responding to a report of a single-car crash found Ware unresponsive inside the car, authorities said.

Ware and her unborn child were pronounced dead at a Columbus-area hospital.

Ware, a single mother of five, was expecting her 6th child.

Dargan is married with children. None of Ware’s other children were fathered by Dargan.

Troup County Sheriff James Woodruff announced Dargan’s arrest in a press conference on Friday morning.

“I could not believe somebody had shot and killed a young mother with five children,” Woodruff said. “And on top of that, killed her and she had a baby inside her that resulted in the death of that baby.”

Woodruff said Dargan grew up in Troup County.

Donald Trump says many Haitian refugees ‘probably have AIDS’ (Audio)

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images

Donald Trump is catching heat for statements he made about Haitian migrants at the U.S. border.

The U.S. border patrol expects 60,000 Haitians to arrive at the Texas-Mexican border within days.

In a phone interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News last night, said many of the Haitian migrants will probably have AIDS.

The former President said:

“So, we have hundreds of thousands of people flowing in from Haiti. Haiti has a tremendous AIDS problem. AIDS is a step beyond. AIDS is a real bad problem.

“Many of those people will probably have AIDS and they’re coming into our country. And we don’t do anything about it. We let everybody come in.”

Trump added: “Sean, it’s like a death wish. It’s like a death wish for our country.”

 

The U.S. resettled 15,000 Haitian refugees across the country following public uproar over border agents on horseback corralling Haitian migrants in September.

Many on social media said Trump’s words were far worse than current Pres. Joe Biden ordering the migrants deported back to Haiti on U.S. Coast Guard planes.

Others noted that Trump was correct because Haiti has the highest rate of AIDS in the Western Hemisphere.

Mariah Carey is “still mad” at Nick Cannon for the birthday gifts he bought their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Nick and Mariah, who divorced in 2016, had agreed not to buy Moroccan and Monroe cell phones when they first asked for the risky devices at age 8.

However, the media mogul went back on their “deal” to give the twins cell phones when they were older.

“The Masked Singer” host asked Mariah if he could give the twins cell phones at age 10. But Mariah said no.

So Nick decided to give Roc and Roe the phones anyway when they turned 10 in April.

Speaking in a preview clip from his eponymous talk show, Nick – who has seven kids with four women – said:

“My oldest twins Roc and Roe wanted a cell phone at eight.

“I was all for it but Mariah was like, ‘Uh-huh they aren’t going to be Googling us, learning about all their new brothers and sisters, no we aren’t playing.’

“I respected it at eight, but then we made a deal and said at 10 then they can have it, (but) Mariah still said no.

“So at 10, I snuck and I still got them the cell phones for their birthday.”

The star said he left the gift amongst other presents at the twins’ “amazing” birthday party, knowing his ex-wife wouldn’t be happy.

He laughingly continued:

“We had this amazing party with jump jumps, their friends came, it was so amazing. Then (when) it was time to open the gifts, I was like ‘I’m going to leave these right here and tell your mama I’ll be back.’

“Mariah is still mad at me till this day.”

Kelis released a music video for her new single “Midnight Snacks” – her first single since 2014.

The music video was directed by Adrienne Raquel (Travis Scott, Rihanna, Selena Gomez). The video premiered on Oct. 7 on BET Soul, BET Her and the Times Square Viacom billboard.

Somebody recently told Kelis that she always sings about food. “I was like, do I?” she laughed.

“I mean, obviously I do. It isn’t intentional, but the idea is just that food is a very carnal thing. Everyone can relate to it. It’s very human, it’s sensual, it’s something that you crave. And it’s sexy.”

According to Radio Facts,”Midnight Snacks” was recorded in a studio on a boat in London and produce by The FaNaTix (Nicki Minaj, Popcaan, Vybz Kartel).

Kelis said she was inspired to write “Midnight Snacks” after hearing the beat.

“I heard the beat, thought it was dope, and the first thing that came to mind was ‘Midnight Snacks,'” said Kelis.

“The FaNaTix were like, what are you talking about? And I was like, it makes you feel like a midnight snack! And that was it,” says Kelis, who added she may keep singing about food.

“It’s funny to me, but I like the fact that you can take sex and food, and you can put these two things together, and they’re totally interchangeable. I love that.”

Kelis’ husband, Mike Mora, 36, recently revealed his yearlong battle with stomach cancer.

Kelis has not commented on her husband’s cancer diagnosis.

Mary J. Blige urges Black women to take breast cancer screenings more seriously

Derrick Salters/WENN.com

Mary J. Blige is leading a new breast cancer campaign aimed at Black women after confessing she ignored breast cancer screenings and mammograms until she was 40.

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the 50-year-old “Family Affair” singer hopes to bring attention to breast cancer screenings and preventative care in an effort to save lives.

“My aunt died from breast cancer and my grandmother died from cervical cancer and one of my aunts just died from lung cancer,” Blige said, according to The Source. “What happens is they end up in the hospital and there’s no one in our families speaking about it when we’re younger.

“I didn’t know about breast cancer or mammograms until I was 40 and I was in the music business and I was trying to take care of myself. My body started talking so I started listening. I found out about it at the GYN (gynecologist). They don’t discuss this when we’re children. They don’t say, ‘Go get a mammogram’. You learn about this as you get older.”

Mary said it’s “extremely important” to let women know, “that no matter how scary it is or who’s telling you it’s scary, take care of you. Take care of your health… I want to help women heal from breast cancer. I want to help us feel beautiful all the way around.”

Screening tests include clinical and self breast exams, mammograms, genetic testing, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Screenings help to detect breast cancer early in asymptomatic women to improve outcomes.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, regardless of race or ethnicity.

According to Breastcancer.org, about one in eight women in the U.S. (about 12.4 percent) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her life.

Dave Chappelle is enjoying the controversy surrounding his latest Netflix special The Closer.

The comedian took the stage at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Thursday night for a screening of his documentary and addressed multiple petitions for his show to be pulled from Netflix.

“If this is what being canceled is about, I love it,” he joked. “I don’t know what to tell you, except I’m a bad motherf**ker.

“This is the kindness conspiracy,” he said, before insisting Americans “have to trust one another.”

Chappelle also reportedly said “F*ck Twitter,” prompting applause from the crowd.

The funnyman, continued his personal war on transgender men and women throughout The Closer.

Chappelle, 48, clarified that he’s not saying “trans women” aren’t women. “I’m just saying that [the genitalia] that they got… is “not quite what it is – is it?”
 

 
Chappelle has upset officials at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) once again with his remarks.

Amongst various comments, he sides with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who became a target of activists last year after offering up her controversial views on transgender women.

Despite the backlash, Chappelle’s new special has raced to the top five on Netflix’s list of the most popular films and series on the platform in the U.S.

A Waffle House worker who held an infant baby in her arms while apparently serving customers has been suspended from her job.

The video footage was uploaded to TikTok by user @Kizzle360 who captioned the video “Ain’t know why she got her baby in here [sic].”

Someone can be heard in the background saying, “Ain’t no f***ing way.”

Viewers were conflicted. Many said they would never bring a baby to work even under the most dire circumstances.

According to TMZ, the Waffle House worker, Tiffany Clark, has a “tragic backstory.”

Tiffany, who goes by @tiffanyclark842 on TikTok, claims she had no choice but to take her 4-month-old niece Octavia to work with her.

Tiffany was working the overnight shift at a South Carolina when she got an urgent call from her mother about an emergency family situation.

Tiffany said Octavia is the daughter of her brother who recently died.

The baby’s grandmother told Tiffany to get the baby because the child’s mother had a mental breakdown and was going to be hospitalized.

Tiffany said the only other option was for the baby to end up in the custody of child services. She told TMZ the video is not nearly as bad as it looks.

Despite appearances, Tiffany claims she was never cooking food with baby Octavia in her arms.

She insists she was simply marking plates for servers, and she says she was only behind the counter with the child for the brief moment that was caught on video.

After the video went viral, Tiffany explained the situation to her boss. She was suspended from her job for a week, but she won’t be fired.

Tiffany says she intends become her niece’s legal guardian while the baby’s mother seeks help for her mental disorder.

Peterson was fully vaccinated as required to participate in the Olympia finals.

There have been multiple instances of brain aneurysms and blood clots reported in people who received the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

Mr Olympia’s Instagram page announced Peterson’s death:

“It is with great sadness that we report the unexpected passing of George Peterson, a champion on stage and off.

“Our condolences go out to his family and all who respected and admired one of the kindest men we have ever known.”
