Three Marvel Movies on a Saturday Night

Last night I kind of went on a Marvel binge. It was totally random, I wasn’t expecting it, but it was so much fun.

I began the evening (after watching Tarzan for basically only the third time in my life and crying my eyes out) by watching Doctor Strange, a film that has become my go-to Marvel flick. Watching it was fun, especially knowing that we’re finally getting the sequel next year and that the said sequel will include Wanda Maximoff. What a fascinating thought.

It’s also very exciting knowing that we will see Mordo again but this time around he will be a villain. I really feel a bit of a Steve/Bucky vibe between Strange and Mordo. They started as friends, will become enemies, but I can see them becoming allies again in the future against a greater evil.

And don’t forget, we’re getting America Chavez’s MCU debut in that movie too.

My Excitement for the Future: Doctor Strange

2021 is here and there’s a lot to be excited about but mainly, I’m thrilled to be returning to the storylines of so many characters and franchises in the coming months. I’m starting a new series featuring each of my favorite characters from different franchises and what I’m most excited to see with them. So, I decided to start this series with none other than my favorite superhero in the MCU, Doctor Strange.

If you had told me five years ago that Doctor Strange would end up becoming my favorite MCU superhero I wouldn’t have believed it but it became a fact after Infinity War.

We got to see him as the awesome Sorcerer Supreme that he is, handling business and taking on Thanos by himself with one of the most awe-inducing fight scenes in the MCU, no matter how short it is.

Now it seems that the magical doctor will be playing an even bigger role in the MCU moving forward. There’s already been confirmation that Doctor Strange will appear in WandaVision which makes sense considering that the Disney+ series has already been confirmed to tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. But that’s not even all!

Spider-Man 3 will feature Doctor Strange in a mentor-like role to Peter Parker in the similar vein to Tony Stark and Nick Fury’s mentor-like roles in both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far from Home. You have no idea how excited I am about this.

‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ and My Thoughts of the Cast

So, during last week’s Disney’s Investor Day, there were some welcome announcements. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was one of those pieces of entertainment that was further elaborated upon and the surprises were definitely there.

Of course, there was the obvious; Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Eijofor would be reprising their roles as Wong and Mordo, Elizabeth Olsen would be in the film for some reason (most likely as a secondary or the primary antagonist) but there was the unexpected.

In Doctor Strange, McAdams played Strange’s love interest, Christine Palmer and while I understood that she was designed to be in the movie solely to be a love interest I felt that she was very boring in the film. Like Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, she brought nothing to the story and honestly, I was very much hoping she wouldn’t return for the sequel.

Well, she’s back and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. It seemed like she had pretty much ended her relationship with Stephen Strange but somehow she’s going to play a part in this show. There’s a comic storyline where she plays a superhero called Night Nurse or something like that so maybe they could incorporate that into her story.

I don’t know. They just need to make her more interesting.

Doctor Strange Is Back Baby!

I’ve said this plenty of times before but…Doctor Strange is my Marvel favorite superhero. I never would’ve thought that four years ago (which was about a month before Doctor Strange entered theaters) but it’s true. Benedict Cumberbatch portrays the character so impeccably that I can’t imagine anyone else playing the hero. It’s almost as if he was made to one day don the goatee and red high-collared cloak of the Sorcerer Supreme.

I’ve been waiting for his sequel since walking out of the theater on November 4, 2016 and while his sequel will have to wait it was just reported yesterday that Doctor Strange will appear in Spider-Man 3.

Did You Know About Female Loki? Well, She Could Be Coming to the MCU Very Soon

Loki is one of the Disney+ original series that is exciting fans and that is for one very obvious reason; Loki’s return of course. Loki has become a fan favorite after his compelling story touched our hearts of the course of the MCU, concluding in a heartbreaking way when Loki ended up perishing at the hands of Thanos in Infinity War.

Of course, with certain events playing out differently in Avengers: Endgame, Loki’s return has come about, and now bits of news are starting to seep through the grapevine.

Apparently, an actress, known for her roles in critically-acclaimed films and television shows like this year’s romantic musical comedy, Yesterday and Into the Badlands has been cast in the upcoming Loki series and a rumor is milling that she is going to play the female version of Loki.

While this, of course, hasn’t been confirmed yet, it’s definitely an intriguing thought that we could see such a character in the MCU.

This next phase in the MCU is set to introduce new characters and new iterations of previous characters such as Falcon as the new Captain America, She-Hulk, Kate Bishop as the new version of Hawkeye, the Black Widow movie could introduce a new Black Widow, and who knows what else Marvel Studios has up its sleeve.

With the Loki series confirmed to play a part in the mysterious Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a female Loki could play a very interesting role in the whole scheme of things.

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

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?
