The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-FIVE)

The Penguin liked to steal the show. He also liked a dramatic entrance.

It’s why, as the crowd in Gotham Park chanted, “For Gotham!” his swarm of trenchcoat-wearing bodyguards surrounding him pushed people out of the way as he filed through the throng of rowdy individuals, tapping his cane to the rhythm of the chant with his every step.

Is Scarlet Witch’s Turn to Villainy On the Horizon?

Phase 4 is fast approaching and that means new stories will have to be told. One of the fascinating trends of the first three phases was seeing villainous characters end up becoming allies of the heroes. Loki, Nebula, and Ghost are examples of this trend. What if this time around, for the next three phases, we get another exciting plot twist; the heroes becoming villains.

Wanda Maximoff started as a villain in Avengers: Age of Ultron but would become an ally of The Avengers. We saw her side with Captain America against Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War. We saw her fall in love with Vision and have to kill him just as quickly in order to save the universe from Thanos. And we saw her come back from the dead and fight Thanos in an epic one-on-one moment that left me pumping my fist in the air with joy.

But now what? Where will her story take her in the future?

If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 7

Han was on the verge of beating the infamous gambler, Lando Calrissian, in a game of sabacc. The crowd surrounding the table was fraught with tenseness as everyone waited to see what Han’s hand consisted of. Qi’ra looked on with wide eyes, her heart beating quickly in her breast.

Was Han going to do it? Was he really going to win and obtain Lando’s ship in the process? She clenched her hand tightly, her fingernails digging into her palm. If he did indeed win she would be beyond impressed.

Han smiled. “Straight staves,” he said as he revealed his cards. Continue reading If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 7

Who’s Your Favorite: Tony and Pepper or Steve and Peggy?

When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe romance may not be something that immediately comes to mind but the relationships built and established in this franchise are some of the greatest we’ve seen in cinema. And, at the top of the romance list, are two couples that have melted our hearts over the years; Tony Stark and Pepper Potts and Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter. These love stories were present all the way until Avengers: Endgame, with both stories concluding in two very different yet very satisfying ways.

For this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I figured this would be the perfect topic, considering that the next few weeks will probably be filled with Star Wars content considering that the final trailer will drop tomorrow night. Enjoy! Continue reading Who’s Your Favorite: Tony and Pepper or Steve and Peggy?

The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-FOUR)

Rain falls in Gotham City, adding a morbid tone to the already morose day. It was December 1, Batman Day, and for the past seven years during this special time of commemoration, millions of the city’s inhabitants gathered throughout Gotham to honor their fallen hero, Batman. Once hated for a crime he didn’t commit and now loved for a sacrifice that saved their very existence, Batman was viewed as a symbol of strength, hope, and the courage to continue fighting against those threatening to bring evil back to Gotham.

His statue, standing in the very center of Gotham Park, was that beacon of fortitude that could never be broken. And directly beneath it, standing without umbrellas in the pouring rain, was a line of police officers dressed in their best uniforms and Lieutenant Lynx. With a morose expression upon her face, she stood on stage before a microphone, surveying the tens of thousands of faces staring back at her. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-FOUR)
