‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Will Most Likely Be Postponed

I’ve been dreading this news ever since COVID-19 shut down movie productions in Spring. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was sitting pretty, its release date untampered, but as COVID-19 has only continued to get worse and worse it has become very clear that, with the show not fully complete, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will most likely not meet its release date in August.

And there goes the saddest news of the week. 😭

However, there is always hope considering that Disney has not released an official statement highlighting the show’s delay but…it would take a miracle for this show to come out now.

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

Morfydd Clark is Set to Play a Young Galadriel in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Amazon Series

Every few months I check on the progress of The Lord of the Rings Amazon series which is still scheduled to arrive sometime in 2021 and a cast has been created for the show filled to the brim with actors and actresses I have never seen before. However, there was one actor that stood out, that being Morfydd Clark.

The series will transpire during the Second Age of Middle-Earth, meaning we may get a firsthand account of how Sauron created the One Ring and the incredible battle that transpired thereafter involving elves and men against Sauron’s mighty army. While the cast hired for the show is mostly for roles unheard of in The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit trilogies there was one familiar name among the bunch.

It appears that this actress, Morfydd Clark, will be portraying a young Galadriel in the series, which could be really exciting. Of course, we’ve supposedly seen a younger Galadriel in the opening narration of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring but that doesn’t matter because we saw Ian Holm as a young Bilbo in that film as well but, unsurprisingly, Peter Jackson recast the character with Martin Freeman bringing young Bilbo Baggins to life in The Hobbit Trilogy.

Honestly, this is exciting news and I truly hope this The Lord of the Rings series becomes the next Game of Thrones/The Mandalorian craze that’ll have fans clamoring for more.

How do you feel about the casting decision for a young Galadriel? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

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

A Movie Ranking: Karen Gillan

Karen Gillan is an actress who has managed to make me smile over the years. She turned out to be one of the coolest women in the MCU as the cybernetic assassin, Nebula. And then she manages to make me laugh in her role as Martha in JumanjiI thought it would be fun to highlight her today. Enjoy!

6. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

While this is my least favorite installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise it is the film that gave converted Nebula to the hero side of things so…that’s nice.

5. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

In the Marvel movies, Karen Gillan is painted all of these different shades of blue and she speaks in this rich, metallic voice that makes you feel like she’s one part shady one part mysterious one part awesome. And then she completely transforms in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, embodying the personality of an insecure teenager within the body of a confident hot female game character. It’s pretty cool and a nice twist for Karen.

4. Jumanji: The Next Level

While both of these Jumanji films are practically identical in likability I just happen to prefer this one because it really does take things to the next level. I can’t wait to see the third one (because there is going to be the third one if the post-credit scene was anything to judge by.)

3. Guardians of the Galaxy

Ever since the first time I saw Nebula I knew she was a really cool character. I was very relieved when she wasn’t killed off in this film, for I felt like she was a character whose story had plenty of chance to grow. And she did.

2. Avengers: Endgame

I was really hoping Nebula would get her chance to face Thanos in this film. She didn’t but that didn’t matter. We still got to see her interact with The Avengers as an ally whether than an enemy. Her interactions with War Machine were the most intriguing, considering that he was one of the few characters that she seemed to legitimately bond with due to both of them having to use technology to function properly. I wonder if we can see their relationship grow over the years.

1. Avengers: Infinity War

This is the best Avengers movie and no one can tell me otherwise. It’s action scenes are all phenomenal. The character interactions are stellar. Every hero is treated in a way where you don’t feel like the writers missed any opportunities. And by the conclusion, it is very clear why Thanos was indeed the big bad Marvel Studios had been trying to get to for ten years.

This has been a fun edition of A Movie Ranking and I can’t wait to see who I will be featuring next week.

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