The very name of the episode says it all: What If…Captain Carter Was the First Avenger? That alone sounds awesome.
Peggy Carter has always been one of the best characters in the MCU and to see her highlighted in such a powerful way was so much fun. Steve Rogers, still skinny, is made a suit of armor by Howard Stark and together they took on HYDRA together.
This premiere episode did it all. It was exhilarating, funny, and in classic The First Avenger fashion, heartbreaking. When the episode concluded I sat back, looked at the ceiling, and with wet eyes asked a simple question, “Why?”
In short, I had a blast.
I can’t wait to see next week’s episode which focuses on What If T’Challa Had Become Star-Lord. That’s sure to be a fun episode but of course it’s bittersweet because we know it’s Chadwick Boseman’s last performance as T’Challa.
I’m also very intrigued to see where else this series takes us storywise and how it could potentially connect to the MCU as a whole.
And just think, with the start of What If…? we’re literally only three weeks away from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Isn’t that incredible?!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to see the premiere of an animated series in my life. After Loki, it became very clear that this What If…? series was an animated avenue to show the effects of the multiverse and all of the incredible possibilities.
Tomorrow’s premiere features Peggy Carter becoming Captain Britain which is bound to be fun to watch. But there are so many other great episodes too to be excited for. What If T’Challa was Star-Lord? What If Doctor Strange was evil? And there are a bunch of other episodes whose stories haven’t been shared yet and I can’t wait to see them all!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular 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.
Yesterday was the day Avengers: Endgame arrived on Blu-Ray in the United States and, because I had preordered it months ago, I walked into my local Best Buy and got my Limited Edition Steelbook copy of the film with a HUGE smile on my face. When I got home I entered in my digital code, sat down with my little sister at my side and the speakers ready to loudly project the film into my ears, and watched Avengers: Endgame.
The greatest surprise I had about the movie was how unexpectedly short it felt. The movie is three hours long and yet it feels like the shortest 3-hour movie that I have ever seen. The story flys by with brilliant efficiency and next thing you know you reach the film’s tantalizing conclusion which, once again, made me cry like a baby. I don’t know what it is about that final battle that gets to my emotions so hard. Maybe it’s an instinctive reflex of unbridled joy at seeing so many of my favorite superheroes all coalesced into one EPIC battle of the ages. Every hero gets a highlight, every MCU hero that you love dons the screen, every hero is there! It’s unprecedented. Nothing like it has ever been achieved and it just…gosh, it messes me up.
