I’m Sorry To Say It But I’m Not Excited for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

Two years ago I couldn’t wait to see Wonder Woman. It was the first time a female superhero from DC Comics was being featured in a standalone film and after Gal Gadot stole the show in Batman vs. Superman I just knew it was going to be awesome. Wonder Woman was disappointing, to say the least, and its sequel doesn’t seem to be doing too well either. It was supposed to come out in June but was pushed until next June, which was a bit of a bummer.

Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor is coming back, which doesn’t make sense considering that he died.

And the movie is set in the 80s’ which means we’ll get cheesy 80s’ references, famous 80s’ songs, and who knows what other 80s’ nonsense that’ll distract from the movie just being a good Wonder Woman movie.

Honestly, I wish I could say I’m buzzing with excitement to see this film but honestly, I’m not. Yeah, I’m eager to see the teaser, whenever that’ll be. (Rumors are saying it’ll arrive in December alongside The Rise of Skywalker.) Yeah, I’m definitely going to go see it next year because why not? But I’m nowhere near as interested in the film as Black Widow, unfortunately.

Missed seeing the first official poster? Here it is. Continue reading I’m Sorry To Say It But I’m Not Excited for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

Throwback Friday: Movie Rumor: The ‘Black Widow’ Movie May Be the MCU’s First R-Rated Film

The long-awaited Black Widow movie is currently filming and rumors are circulating that Disney is considering making this film the first R-rated entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While this may seem a bit shocking to most I’m actually not surprised. The Black Widow movie is supposed to be a prequel that will surely highlight Natasha’s role as an agent for the KGB before she joined S.H.I.E.L.D and, considering the brief flashes of information regarding her past, it’s very dark. Natasha has tried and succeeded in leaving the atrocities of her past behind but if we are to fully understand that darker section of her life the movie should be rated R so nothing can be held back.

Of course, we have grown used to the MCU providing family-friendly content and it definitely seems jarring to think that there would finally be a film that’s catered to adult audiences only but it makes all the sense in the world. Natasha’s past is dark. The writers shouldn’t water down what could be a truly incredible story of redemption for one of the world’s most feared and ruthless assassins to appease children.

Now, do I want the Black Widow movie to be rated R? Um, I love that this franchise has kept everything PG-13 up to this point but if it’ll help Black Widow’s movie be as great as it can be then I’ll gladly accept the R-rating. Besides, Black Widow’s story in the comics has never been catered to children anyway so…

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day.
