‘Black Widow’: Why Am I Not Excited?

For years, Black Widow has been one of my favorite Marvel characters. She stole the show in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, solidified my love for her in Captain America: Civil War, returned with an awesome new hairdo and sterner attitude in Endgame…but then felt wasted in Endgame. There was a catch though. Black Widow would be getting her own film this year in May.

I was excited…and then I saw the first trailer. Suddenly, my intrigue and enthusiasm vanished and I was left feeling like, meh. You see, this is Black Widow’s first chance to shine in the spotlight and I’m starting to realize I might not find her character interesting enough to care.

My love for her pretty much fizzled out a bit after Endgame. But what’s keeping me invested in this new story is undoubtedly the new characters, Yelena Belova, the Red Guardian, Melina Vostakoff, and the mysterious Taskmaster. Plus, I have a feeling there’s going to be some sort of shocking twist (or twists) that’ll make this, hopefully, one of the best Marvel movies in the franchise.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

Highlighting both the Resistance and the First Order a.k.a Tam and Rucklin, former individuals once living on the Colossus like everyone else, this episode was actually pretty good. Continue reading Peril FINALLY Graces ‘Star Wars: Resistance’

The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-TWO)

Commissioner Gordon gazed at the pale woman who was sitting across from him in the interrogation room, smiling profusely at him. He wasn’t smiling back. He vaguely knew who she was. After The Joker escaped from Arkham Asylum there were rumors that a doctor helped him. That doctor thus became known as Harley Quinn; a crazed fanatic who was a wrecking machine of death.

Of course, it was just a rumor. Now it was fact as she sat before him. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-TWO)
