Hawkeye is a character that has long been slept on in the MCU and yet he’s managed to play a pivotal supporting role throughout his run in this franchise. I recently saw a post on Instagram that laid out the facts; every team that Hawkeye’s on wins. Don’t believe me? Here are the facts.
When he became one of the core six Avengers they defeated Loki and his army of Chitauri at the Battle of New York.
In Age of Ultron, they managed to beat Ultron on Sokovia and saved the world.
In Captain America: Civil War, he joined Cap’s team and they won, considering that Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes still managed to get away to try and stop the Winter Soldiers.
He wasn’t a part of the fight in Infinity War and The Avengers lost terribly.
He did join the fight in Endgame and well, The Avengers defeated Thanos and saved the universe.
Yeah, Hawkeye’s a secret MVP in the MCU but he’s never got the recognition he deserved…until now.
It’s been roughly two weeks since Loki ended and I’m still finding a way to talk about the series almost every single day. I know I should move on and get myself prepared for What If…? but just bear with me for a little bit longer. I’l be running out of Loki-inspired posts soon…I think.
As I sat around thinking about, you guessed it, Loki, I began to wonder if the second season could give us even more variants of the title character or maybe variants of other characters.
For one, I would love to see a more accurate interpretation of Lady Loki in the second season. Even though I loved Sylvie and thought she was a perfect partner for Loki’s God of Mischief in the series’ first season I’ve always wanted to see Lady Loki in the MCU.
You know, the Lady Loki who’s just undeniably naughty. She could be that extra monkey wrench in Loki’s mission to save the universe that would provide him another obstacle against himself, essentially.
Maybe this Lady Loki is the right-hand woman of Kang the Conqueror like Loki was Thanos’ pawn. That would make her a formidable foe. Or maybe she’s just another antagonist trying to take control of the galaxy. All in all, I think we need to see more female variants of Loki and introducing Lady Loki would be the perfect way to do that.
And here’s a thought. What if Loki met a variant of Thor in the second season? First off, that would ensure that Loki and Thor would be back together again which is something I desperately need to happen considering that Loki is very much alive and back in the MCU for what feels like a good amount of time.
And no, this Thor variant doesn’t even have to be played by Chris Hemsworth.
If the first season of Loki showed us anything, it showed us that Marvel Studios can now get very creative in a way they couldn’t in the past. That first season provided multiple actors a chance to play Loki so why shouldn’t we have a new Thor? Here are a few Thors from the comics that could be a great fit for Season 2 of Loki.
Endgame; it’s the film that ended three phases and eleven years of incredible storytelling. It’s the movie that made a billion dollars in its opening weekend and became the highest-grossing film of all time. But most importantly, it’s the movie that after over two dozen viewings still leaves me wiping my face free of tears because it is that emotionally impactful.
Last night I was feeling a little hungry for some wholesome Marvel content so I went straight to the good stuff; the last hours of Infinity War and Endgame.
Infinity War delivers a rush of emotions too but they are different emotions. Infinity War inspires immense joy and awe as The Avengers face Thanos’ army and Thanos on two fronts. Ultimately, The Avengers lose and as the movie comes to close one can only feel a sense of appreciative hollowness watching Thanos smile at the sunset after having killed trillions of people in the blink of an eye.
Loki is honestly one of the greatest Marvel characters ever brought to the big screen, even when he was a sneaky villain who constantly did infuriating things he was so likable. After recently watching a Youtube video ranking Loki’s best moments I decided I might as well make my own list. So here it is. My ten favorite Loki moments.
10. “Get help.”
While the movies established Loki and Thor as brothers they were portrayed as feuding brothers for most of their time together in the MCU but Thor: Ragnarok did give us a glimpse into their lives as children. The “Get help” is not only funny but so cute. I wish we could’ve had more time with them doing brotherly things but maybe we still can.
I don’t usually jump onto fan casting bandwagons but the recent announcement of Michaela Coel joining Black Panther: Wakanda Forever got me thinking, what if she is playing Storm? And here’s some fan art to only make that potential fan cast come to life.
Wow, wow, wow, wow. This is amazing! Storm is already one of my favorite superheroes, always has been in fact, but this fan art makes Michaela Coel look so cool (and natural) in the role. I hope Storm is actually in the film, which I highly doubt considering that it seems like we won’t be getting any X-Men in the MCU anytime soon but…we’ll see.
I thank you for reading and i hope you have a great day.
After Ant-Man and the Wasp only did so-so at the box office and came across as a fun but mediocre sequel it seemed like we wouldn’t be getting an Ant-Man trilogy…but we are, and the hype is real after realizing just the impact Kang the Conqueror could have on the film.
Considering that Kang the Conqueror will be the antagonist in that movie I think it’s safe to bet that someone is going to die in that movie. I mean, Kang is one of the toughest Marvel villains. In fact, he’s more dangerous than Thanos! A villain like that is only going to inspire true respect from the fandom if he’s catching bodies along the way.
So, who is the most expendable in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, will impact the characters greatly, and will let us appreciate Kang’s power in the same way that we appreciate Thanos? Kang will probably kill Hank Pym.
Hank is a prominent figure in the Ant-Man story. He’s Scott’s often-grumpy mentor, Hope’s father and only parent for over twenty years, and he was once a superhero. Killing him off after Hope just had her family reunited would be devastating and would instantly change the tone of the film, resulting in a far more serious third Ant-Man movie.
Do you think anyone should die in Quantumania? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
