A Special Fan Art Saturday

Last year on this day we lost a great man, Chadwick Boseman, who impacted the world with his presence on and offscreen. His death is one of the saddest tragedies in recent memory that I can remember but his legacy lives on through his work and his powerful message. Today, I’d like to honor him with a special edition of my Fan Art posts. Enjoy!

While I could not find the artist who drew this it is truly marvelous in its simplicity.
This is another piece by an artist I could not find but it is very clear this piece is gorgeous and maybe even tear-inducing.

Just putting this post together has gotten me quite a bit emotional actually. Chadwick Boseman was a beautiful person and I thank him for bringing such a powerful, good, inspiring character to the big screen for my own children to see one day.

R.I.P Chadwick Boseman.

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

Another Special Fan Art Monday

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.

A Special Fan Art Tuesday

It’s time for another special edition of my Fan Art Wednesday posts because Loki is over and I’ve seen some stunning (and hilarious) art focused on the series to feature. Enjoy!

Inspired by the events of the fourth episode, I loved this picture because it was one of the few pieces of art that I saw highlighting Ravonna Renslayer. She’s such a fascinatingly complex character (no, I don’t really think of her as a villain) and I loved that the show gave her such a prominent presence that will extend into Season 2.

We’re Nine Days Away from ‘Black Widow’

Nine days from now I will be seeing a Marvel movie for the first time in two years. No, this isn’t a highly-anticipated series that’s going to run for six weeks and leave us clamoring for more answers every week. It’s one two hour and fourteen minute film and that’s it. It’s an exciting prospect.

So, in anticipation for the 24th movie in the MCU, here’s some more Black Widow appreciation. First up, I share another favorite Black Widow moment. Enjoy!

Black Widow’s Entrance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was the movie that turned me into a Black Widow fan. This film shined a light on her story that hadn’t been shone before and it made me empathize with her character and want to know (and see) more.

But it was this scene that I remember bringing a smile to my face. Steve Rogers is beginning to forge a new friendship with future Cap, Sam Wilson, when Natasha Romanoff drives up in a sleek, low to the ground, black Corvette, looking like the ultimate spy that she is. Then she does something that she ultimately never does again in the MCU; she tells a joke: “Hey fellas. Does anyone know where the Smithsonian is? I’m here to pick up a fossil.”

In that one moment we learn two things: A) she likes to drive in style and B) she’s actually a laid-back person if you get to know her, which shows how comfortable she had gotten with Steve Rogers. It was a wonderful moment that I thought was perfect to highlight today.

A Special Fan Art Thursday

It’s been a day since Loki but my thoughts are still very much on the God of Mischief’s elating episode and the series so far. Today, in honor of the series’ first three glorious episodes, I’m sharing some fan art inspired by each episode from the incomparable Uzuri Art. Enjoy!

The first episode of Loki really beat our favorite mischievous Asgardian down bit by bit until he was a crying, disheveled husk of himself. This piece encapsulates his “I don’t have time for this. I’m a God” personality in a nutshell.
