When is a superhero movie like Game of Thrones? When it’s the most pirated movie of the year, of course. On a new list of all the movies downloaded from popular torrenting site BitTorrent, the merc with a mouth tops the chart over Batman v. Superman, Captain America: Civil War, and The Force Awakens.

The Internet Movie Database is a fount of helpful information. With a few simple clicks, users can learn who shot the Miley Cyrus vehicle So Undercover (Things to Come cinematographer Denis Lenoir), which sequel in the Hellraiser franchise featured a performance from a young Adam Scott (the fourth one), or how old Taraji P. Henson is (who looks that good at 46?!). As a repository for loose factoids from in and around the world of screen entertainment, it can’t be beat. As a source for critical perspectives on those same films, however... hoo boy. Just take a gander at any comment section for a movie’s page and marvel at the IMDb is the site where rabid anti-Ghostbusters zealots congregated to downvote Paul Feig’s movie into oblivion weeks before its actual release, and the newly-released IMDb Top 10 provides an even clearer view of its user base.

The addition of the Spider-Signal at the end of Captain America: Civil War was an unexpected treat for fans of the web-slinger, and the first time Marvel has had it in a live-action movie. And it made total sense — if Tony Stark was going to take Peter Parker under his wing, he would never be able to resist making the kid a few little gifts. Today, the company behind the Spider-Signal animation released their concept art for the design, and it’s fascinating to see the preliminary sketches evolve into the finished product.

For an actor whose superhero prospects haven’t always been stellar, Nicolas Cage sure does love superhero movies. His role as Big Daddy in Kick-Ass was the most positively received, but critics and audiences alike were lukewarm-to-cold on his Johnny Blaze in the Ghost Rider movies (Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is actually a good movie, okay). Cage isn’t salty about it though, revealing that he really did enjoy this year’s three most recent superhero movies (minus Doctor Strange).

‘Ant-Man’ Director Peyton Reed Didn’t Want His Hero to Be a Part of the Bigger MCU

The addition of Ant-Man was one of the best parts of Captain America: Civil War, and his self-contained solo debut was a far cry from the Very Big And Huge movies of the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ant-Man’s director Peyton Reed actually thought the the character’s narrative was too pint-sized for these other big superhero movies, and recently revealed that, had he had his way, Ant-Man wouldn’t have appeared in Civil War at all.

Recently we learned that every single shot of Black Panther in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ was CG. Chadwick Boseman and his stunt double wore a practical suit on set, but the final costume was the workings of the visual effects team, and now we can see how the magic was done.

There were a ton of rumors leading up to ‘Captain America: Civil War’ that the ending would find some of the Avengers killed, especially Steve Rogers. But after all the fighting, none of the Avengers met their fate, with Rhodey as the only one sustaining a serious injury. So why did all the superheroes survive?

While Marvel fans are no-doubt pleased with the critical and box office success of the movies to date, spend enough time in the comic book communities and you do hear people complain that movies like Captain America: Winter Soldier were not given more consideration for major awards at the end of the year. After all, Marvel has brought in some of the most talented filmmakers and actors working in the business today; why wouldn’t the Academy want to recognize some of the talent on display in these films?

Here’s another mind-boggling tidbit from the fascinating Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray commentary. Every shot of Black Panther in Civil War is CGI. Not just the obvious ones, like where Panther’s chasing the Winter Soldier on foot or he’s in a hand-to-claw fight with Captain America. Every. Single. Shot.

Check Out This Brand New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Concept Art

There’s something strange about concept art for comic book movies. Seeing artists’ renditions of popular superheroes filtered through the lens of the Hollywood actors that play them blur the line between comic books and movies in a really weird way. Since so many different artists have tackled characters like Iron Man and Captain America, I’m used to them not looking like anyone in particular, but there is the face of Chris Evans or Sebastian Stan poking out from every panel. It’s both very neat and a little, you know, uncanny valley.
