I may be in the minority here when I say Black Widow is my favorite MCU movie of the year so far but it’s the truth. The film gripped me, it made me cry, and it made me love Yelena Belova instantly. So when I learned we’d be getting Belova sooner rather than later in Hawkeye I got really excited. Now, Episode 4 drops tomorrow and I think it’s time for everyone’s new favorite assassin to make an appearance.
Of course, this is all speculation and we may not get a chance to see her until the finale but… if she does show up…
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Spider-Man fans, hear me out. I know the excitement you’re feeling right now. I know you’re counting down the days until December 17 and each new day brings new waves of butterflies or rushes of extreme excitement. Trust me, I get it because I felt the same way about The Rise of Skywalker.
And then the reviews came out and they weren’t pretty. In fact, they were really bad but I still didn’t want to believe. I told myself, “It’s just the critics. They’re not real Star Wars fans.” And then I watched the film, despised it with all my being, and since then I’ve made myself never get blindly excited for anything ever again.
I understand the hype for No Way Home and there’s a part of me that thinks this could be one of the best MCU movie ever made. But I’m seeing these new TV spots with these terrible shots of unfinished CGI and well, the film looks bad. Literally.
I wish I wasn’t so pessimistic about this movie but I have a feeling No Way Home isn’t going to live up to the hype. I hope I’m wrong.
What do you think? Are you worried about No Way Home too?
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
I haven’t done of these ranking posts in a while but after watching Ant-Man the other day and seeing the film’s second post-credits scene (which is the scene from Civil War when Falcon mentions recruiting Ant-Man) I got serious chills and a yearning to write this post. So, here we are, trying to rank ten out of many awesome post-credit scenes. Here we go.
10. Is Steve Rogers Still Alive?-What If…?
I may be in the minority here when I say that What If…? is one of the best entries in the entire MCU but I, personally, loved every second of it. The animation was gorgeous, perfectly illustrating the characters to make them feel almost lifelike, most of the actual actors were able to voice their characters which, of course, added extra depth to the story, and each week’s episode surprised me more than the last.
For this to be Marvel Studios’ first venture into animation they did a remarkable job.
And to end off the season we got another wonderful tease, that being Steve Rogers’ potential survival into next season. Will he be evil like Bucky or will the story take a different turn? Whatever the case, I’m excited to see what happens next for Captain Carter’s story.
9. Thanos’ Debut-The Avengers
Nine years ago a movie came out called The Avengers. It was an unprecedented achievement as it brought together six of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and shattered the box-office with its engaging story and iconic moments. The experiment that was the Marvel Cinematic Universe had paid off and from there it’s been quite the ride ever since.
But Kevin Feige had something greater in mind. An endgame that would lead to the highest-grossing film of all time thanks to a certain purple villain whose name would end up sending chills down the spine of any avid MCU fan; Thanos.
His first appearance in the MCU is small as he performs an out-of-character evil grin and simply side-eyes the camera with foreboding music playing in the background but for loyal comic book fans, they understood exactly what was coming. I, however, did not but after watching Infinity War I understood what the hype was about.
Last week I watched the first two episodes of Hawleye and I was less than enthused. However, the third episode had my attention from the get-go, and when it concluded I was very sad.
This episode really has it where it counts. From beginning to end, I was invested, I was laughing, I even teared up at one point, and now I’m very, very intrigued to see where this story goes. Plus, the introduction to Echo was very cool. I can’t wait to see more of her and her story which obviously is going to lead into a spinoff that was announced on Disney+ Day. Very, very cool!
All in all, Hawkeye has my full attention now and I’m waiting eagerly for next week’s episode.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
Well, the first two episodes of Hawkeye dropped today, I watched them this morning at 3am which has become my ritual with the new Disney+ series I’m excited for, and unfortunately, I was bored out of my mind.
The first two episodes of this series aren’t gripping at all. I love Hawkeye but his gruntled nature doesn’t help the series as he goes around grumbling about everything at every turn in a way that does, at least, feel totally warranted. And Hailee Steinfeld looks like a carbon copy of what Kate Bishop should look like in live-action but unfortunately she isn’t really engaging me either.
The script, so far, is weak, the humor isn’t really there, and the plot is SO BORING. I gave the first episode a pass because it’s basically the pilot. It set up the characters, their stories, what’s going on, and it ended decently. But the second episode only continued to drag the boredom instead of becoming this absolutely fantastic rollercoaster ride.
The second episode was so boring, in fact, I kept tapping the screen to see how many minutes I had left.
