Throwback Friday: Should There Be An All-Female Avengers Movie and Who Should Be In It?

Over the years there has been a fascinating increase of female superheroes in the MCU. There has been such a rise of awesome heroines in this franchise in fact that Tessa Thompson, who plays the role of Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, said that there should be an all-female Avengers movie. A group of actresses even went as far as to approach the top people in Marvel about the idea. And now, after that incredible scene in Avengers: Endgame featuring every (alive) heroine the thought of an Avengers movie featuring only women doesn’t seem so far-fetched after all. So, should there be an Avengers movie that highlights our favorite heroic heroines? Um…yeah!

We’ve seen progress in how women are portrayed in superhero movies. Wonder Woman got her first solo film in 2017 which featured not only the first female superhero to get her own movie but it had a female director at the helm as well. It ended up making just a little north of $800 million, proving that women could drive people to the movie theaters. Ant-Man and the Wasp wouldn’t collect as much money as Wonder Woman but it garnered highly positive reviews, many citing Wasp as a fantastic co-lead to Paul Rudd’s humorous Ant-Man. And Captain Marvel proved that Wonder Woman‘s success wasn’t a fluke as it made over a billion dollars at the box-office this spring.

Why shouldn’t Marvel take things to the next level by introducing a movie featuring a group of heroes that consists of only women. We saw what that could look like in Avengers: Endgame and it was legitimately awesome. But who should be a part of this heroic team? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!

‘Toy Story 4’ Is Exactly What I Expected: Good

This Tuesday I got the chance to see a pre-screening of Toy Story 4 with my sister. It was the first time I had ever attended a pre-screening of a film and we absolutely had a blast. Of course, I couldn’t speak about the movie until it had premiered, which technically was yesterday, but I saved this review for today. 🙂

If you’ve checked to see what Toy Story 4‘s rating among critics has been and glimpsed the 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes or the 8.8 out of 10 scores on IMDb let me assure you, it deserves those ratings.

Toy Story 3 was supposedly the end of the franchise that had started in 1995 and it was a great story as it transitioned little Andy from childhood to adulthood and the imminent but bittersweet breakup between Andy and his favorite toys. It was a tear-inducing “finale” that ended up not only winning Best Animated Film but was only the second animated movie to also be nominated for Best Picture.

It was perfectly written, it told a concise story, and it left people happy. No one was clamoring for a sequel like we wished for a sequel to The Incredibles but we were given one anyway and it was worth the wait. Continue reading ‘Toy Story 4’ Is Exactly What I Expected: Good

Captain America: Secret War (PROLOGUE)

In the snowy tundra of Russia, propellers can be heard amidst the harsh whistles of the wind. Deputy Task Force’s overwhelming presence surrounds a secret HYDRA base buried deep into the rocky landscape. To some, the base would seem like an abandoned outpost of a bygone age but to the Deputy Task Force, they know the headquarters holds many secrets.
