Spider-Man: No Way Home is pretty much the most highly-anticipated Marvel movies this year. Far from Home with such a wild cliffhanger that we’ve all been waiting to see what would happen next but now…with Loki opening the multiverse, it looks like things are going to get really, really interesting in the MCU.
Our first look at Spider-Man: No Way Home actually has nothing to do with a trailer but toys and it’s actually kind of awesome.
Loki has been quite the ride so far and while I may have written a post on whether Loki would finally have a love interest in his own series I definitely did not expect it to happen like this…
In the third episode we spend forty minutes with Loki and Sylvie bonding. The fourth episode takes that bond to the next level. And before I go any further, yes that bond is romantic. A lot of people are hoping it’s a platonic situation happening but everything is pointing to Loki falling for Sylvie and vice versa. Just think about it.
They met, despised each other at first, and then when they had the chance they began to talk. He showed her some fireworks from his hand, he sang to her, she couldn’t keep her eyes off of him, and from there on their friendship blossomed.
I’m not expecting every episode to be as action-packed and thrilling as last week’s episode but this tenth episode was hard to watch.
It felt like a typical episode of The Clone Wars but with no Anakin, Obi-Wan, or Ahsoka I found myself finding it hard to stay awake or invested.
The 24 minutes or so flew by like a breeze and when it concluded I wanted to yawn. The Bad Batch has had its moments but with only six episodes I’m going to need these episodes to start getting better quickly or my investment is going to drop to an all-time low.
Every interesting storyline has been diverted by some convenient answer to the problem. Now we’re back to square one, the boredom, and honestly, it’s kind of tiring.
I want to love this show and it is a decent first season but honestly…I’m only still watching every week because I’m a Star Wars fan.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
Another day has passed and that means we’re getting closer and closer to the big day! Here’s to celebrating more Black Widow awesomeness.
The Face Mask Trick
Remember that one time Natasha Romanoff went complete Mission: Impossible on everyone by impersonating this S.H.I.E.L.D lady, infiltrating Secretary Pierce’s secret bad guy meeting, and crashing the party?
I remember seeing that scene for the first time and being so shocked when that “old lady” went to town on everyone only for it to be revealed that it was Black Widow all along.
It was another one of those moments where we got to see her spy skills tested and highlighted in a really fun way.
Yesterday’s episode was something else. Episode 3 “Lamentis” was a bit of a slowdown of pace for the series that helped establish Sylvie as a character but the fourth episode took it there…for real. The episode got my brain thinking rapidly but I made sure to take a day and gather my thoughts because there was a lot to digest. But now, it’s time for me to share with you my thoughts on that shocking fourth episode. Enjoy!
The episode begins by showing us Sylvie when she was a child. She’s playing with toys in Asgard when the TVA, led by Ravonna Renslayer, come and take her away from her home. The question is, why?
I understand that there isn’t supposed to be a Goddess of Mischief but there’s more to her story than meets the eye.
We then skip to the present and Loki and Sylvie are about to die on Lamentis-1 as the TVA desperately try to find them. For the first time in their two lives, as Loki and Sylvie hold hands and stare into one another’s eyes as the end of their existence fast approaches, they are in the company of someone who truly understands them and loves them for who they are.
It’s a moment so rare for a Loki that they cause a massive spike in the timeline and are found by the TVA…or more like captured.
I know that a lot of people who watched the episode were uncomfortable or downright disgusted with the idea of Loki having potentially romantic feelings for Sylvie but…well I have some thoughts on the matter that I’ll share in another post but yes, I’m one of the people who understands that their relationship is, in fact, romantic and I’m actually here for it…in a weird way.
