‘The Rise of Skywalker’ May Introduce Palpatine At His Most Powerful

While going through old posts I have written I ran into this post I wrote before The Rise of Skywalker came out. And seeing it, I had to share it again because it’s actually hilarious. So, on that note, check this out.

The Rise of Skywalker trailer was packed with dazzling imagery and riveting voiceovers that imbued the trailer with emotion and chill-inducing happiness. But, beyond the very obvious things, we may observe in the trailer, I have discovered a very subtle yet potentially very important detail in this trailer.

Throughout certain sections of the trailer, we see lightning pervading the clips,

whether we’re talking about the clip that depicts the throne room,

Captain America May Return to the MCU, Just Not in the Way We Think

Captain America, our beloved patriotic hero who found his way into our hearts, if not immediately, then gradually over the years. Unlike Iron Man, Captain America did not perish at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame but he did pass over the mantle to Sam Wilson/Falcon to become the new Captain America in the coming years. It’s sad to think we won’t have Steve Rogers anymore in the next few phases of the MCU and yet…maybe we will still have him around. Not in a literal sense but in a figurative sense. You’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Well, let me elaborate.

In Captain America: The Winter Soldier Peggy tells the reporter in a video: “That was a difficult winter. A blizzard had trapped half our battalion behind the German line. Steve, Captain Rogers, he fought his way through a HYDRA blockade that had pinned down our allies for months. He saved over a thousand men. Including the man who would become my husband as it turns out. Even after he died Steve was still changing my life.”

Immediately we assumed that she had gone on and married some guy in the army that Steve had saved but apparently that didn’t happen. A particular sentence in this scene now stands out to me. It’s when Peggy says: “Even after he died Steve was still changing my life.” Continue reading Captain America May Return to the MCU, Just Not in the Way We Think

The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-THREE)

It was late at night and Gotham was mostly silent. Inhabitants of the city were either in their homes preparing for the festivities of the coming day or scared to death because of the recent events transpiring in Gotham.

The police depot was just as quiet. Police officers had either retired to their homes to spend time with their families before the big day or were silently lurking about the station.

Commissioner Gordon couldn’t sleep, choosing to stay at the depot. There was something unnerving about having two prisoners as dangerous as Harley Quinn and the other one who refused to reveal her name in the station. Whoever they were working for could get the bright idea to try and bust them out. And what would he do in that situation? Three-fourths of Gotham’s police force was away and the last fourth surely wasn’t prepared for a potential attack. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-THREE)
