It wasn’t until about a couple of weeks ago that I watched Split for the first time. I had seen the commercials, my mother watched it and said that it was surprisingly good, and when my sister and I finally saw it to say we were horrified is an understatement.
Split, which follows the story of three teenage girls abducted by a man who has twenty-three personalities, is one of the best thrillers I’ve ever seen. The film doesn’t mess around with boring details or a storyline that chooses to take its own time before getting to the nitty-gritty. No, this movie keeps you on your toes from the very beginning and doesn’t let up the gas until by the conclusion you are staring at the screen in sheer horror.
After Split, we had to see where the story was going to go in last year’s finale of the trilogy, Glass. Unsurprisingly, Glass was just as riveting, in an albeit quieter fashion. We get to see M. Night Shyamalan’s (the writer/director of the trilogy) main characters–David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Crumb (James McAvoy)–come together in the trilogy finale in a story that leads to the very unexpected.
Since the trailer for Eternals has come out fans have been clamoring for the first official teaser of Spider-Man: No Way Home and while I’m pretty sure we won’t be getting the teaser (then again, maybe we will) there is a chance we’ll see it sometime this month ahead of the premiere of Black Widow. So, until then, here are some things I really want to see in the teaser.
My Favorite Marvel Superhero, Doctor Strange!
There were rumors that we’d be getting Doctor Strange as the new mentor-type character in this third Spider-Man installment and I want to know if that’s true or not. Of course, he may simply be in a post-credits scene but I would love it if he does play a sizable role in the actual film. Especially considering how much fun it was to see them interact in Infinity War.
A New and Improved Look for Foxx’s Electro
Jamie Foxx is a great actor and yet he was turned into what I feel is the worst adaptation of a comic book villain ever in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. His design was atrocious and it distracted from his part in the story. I hope to see his return in the teaser with an updated design that isn’t so aesthestically displeasing.
Considering that this will be nothing more than a teaser I don’t know what else to expect. Apparently Alfred Molina is returning to reprise his role as Doctor Octopus so we should see what happens with that but besides that tidbit of information I am very much in the dark about this movie and I can’t wait to see what it’s going to be about.
What do you want to see in the teaser? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
