Captain America: Secret War (NINETEEN)

Natasha Romanoff climbed the stone wall, hurriedly reaching the top and pulling herself over the bridge just as the Quinjet arrived. Natasha looked to find Steve and saw him huddled next to what looked like Sharon Carter who lay prone on the street. Sam Wilson was standing guard before the both of them and Dr. Frost was currently preoccupied with…

“Is that…?”

“The Wakandans. Yes,” Agent Hill answered as she hurriedly approached Natasha.

Natasha turned. “What are they doing here?”

“I called them,” Nick Fury replied as he stood on the ramp, his gun drawn. “This is a threat, unlike anything we’ve seen before. The Wakandans have offered their services to the world and I made use of that offer.”

Agent Hill ran past Natasha to Steve. When he saw her relief crossed his features.

All Hail the New Batman!

Batman, he’s a character that is rebooted at least once every decade since Michael Keaton’s portrayal of the character in 1989. And with each iteration comes the fans’ searing disapproval or groveling praise and Robert Pattinson’s take on the dark knight is making fans of the character very, very happy indeedy.

Pattinson has been beloved by pop culture nerds for a while, whether we’re talking about his role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory or his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies. But over the years, he’s strayed away from the pop culture scene, proving himself to be a formidable actor in other movies. Now he’s playing the role of his life and it looks like he’s going to be quite the treat to behold. Check out the first teaser released last night for The Batman.

Gritty, dark, and so brutal, this Batman looks like he’s on a mission and you don’t want to be in his way. Matt Reeves announced that they only got 25-30% into filming so I honestly expected to see maybe twenty seconds of live-action looks at the characters…not a full-blown teaser!

The internet is roiling over this brand new look at the Batman and I am just so impressed. Plus, his new saying, “I’m vengeance” instead of “I’m Batman” was an extra cool touch.

I was already a bit excited about this movie but now I’m positively over the moon. People are already clamoring for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker to meet Pattinson’s Batman and if that did happen I think it would be one of the greatest things to ever happen in comic book movie history.

Here’s the first poster for The Batman.

Gosh, I’m ready to see this movie next year.

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