It’s Hump Day and I’m feeling the urge to talk about Disney+. This past week has been exciting for all Disney fans as we have gotten two exclusive clips for Black Widow and Loki as well as first reactions for Disney’s latest live-action remake, Cruella. Enjoy!
If I’m being honest, this particular clip for Black Widow is kind of weak. We don’t know the stakes so there is no feeling, the fact that I’ve seen the best parts of this clip in the trailers over and over again makes this clip kind of underwhelming, and the lack of flow is kind of obvious.
Does this make me not excited for the actual film? Oh, I’m totally excited but this clip was kind of lame.
Here I am, on a Monday afternoon, trying to figure out what I feel like writing about today, when suddenly a visit to Twitter became the highlight of the day.
Tomorrow is May the 4th a.k.a Star Wars day but on the eve of the galactic celebration Marvel Studios decided to offer its loyal fans a fun treat in the form of an awesome three-minute trailer. As it played I was a little bored but after a while it became very clear, this trailer was something special. Here it is.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is almost over but that doesn’t mean our time with Marvel is coming to a close anytime soon. In fact, we’ve got seven new installments to the franchise that we still have yet to see; Loki, Black Widow, What If…?, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Hawkeye, The Eternals, and Spider-Man 3.
Yeah, that’s a lot…and I am excited! But what am I most excited to see next? Well, it’s almost hard to choose isn’t it?
Loki is pretty much the most chaotic character in the MCU, specifically 2012 Loki. He’s conniving, mischievous, and downright dastardly. And now we’re about to get a Disney+ series featuring this guy and all of his shenanigans. It’s hard not to get excited about a chance to see more with this lovable villain and wherever this series could take us narratively. But is this the next MCU installment that I’m most excited about? I’m not quite sure.
Black Widow is finally coming to theaters and it feels like this movie is going to be quite a ride. It’s definitely going to be action-packed. It’s going to be more emotional than most people may anticipate. And we’re finally going to get the chance to resolve Natasha’s journey.
I’m so pumped for this film and a big reason why is because I want to see her adversary, Taskmaster, in action because he seems like a bad***.
Plus, it just looks like this is going to be a good movie.
It’s happening. It’s finally happening! Black Widow is actually coming out on July 9 and with that being said a new trailer dropped on Saturday. And yeah, it’s the best trailer yet. Here it is.
This trailer was so great. The callbacks to her time as an Avenger, the flashback sequences to her early childhood and I guess the separation from her family, Taskmaster looks epic, and this looks like a story worth joining the long list of MCU installments.
Jac Schaeffer was the head writer for WandaVision and we all know how that turned. It was a stunning display of creativity and it perfectly provided Wanda the Scarlet Witch origin story that she deserved. Schaeffer knows how to write stories for bad*** broads so Black Widow is going to be a treat.
And literally just now the Loki official trailer dropped so…I’m about to watch it. *excited clap*
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
Marvel has a lot of characters and all of them have their own charm. To write these sort of ranking lists pertaining to the MCU is so much harder for me than something like Star Wars because I love so many of the characters but for now, I’ll give it a go. Enjoy!
Agnes a.k.a Agatha Harkness was an instant favorite of mine when she waltzed into Wanda’s life in the first episode of WandaVision and as the series continued and the mystery only deepened she only became more and more fascinating.
By the end, when she revealed herself to be a witch by the name of Agatha Harkness I just really, really enjoyed the character. I’m so relieved that they decided not to kill her off because I want to see her again in the future.
If you haven’t noticed Marvel Studios is jam-packing a lot of content into our faces in the next few years. I’m talking Disney+ series and so many movies it’s almost hard to keep up and yet…I’m excited for all of it.
With the Black Widow release date announcement two days ago the Marvel Studios schedule shifted and new “official” dates were released for the franchise’s slate of upcoming movies leading all the way into 2023.
