Throwback Friday: Black Widow Is Here To Stay…Just Not in the Way, We Think

Scarlet Johansson will star as Black Widow one more time in the upcoming Black Widow standalone film this fall. However, there are already rumors that, depending on the film’s success, there may be a Black Widow sequel. But how can there be a Black Widow sequel without Scarlet Johansson? Very simple. The Black Widow movie is setting up another story of a new hero. Her name is Yelena Belova.

In the comics, Yelena Belova is chosen at the age of fifteen to become the new Black Widow after Natasha Romanoff’s allegiance to Russia becomes non-existent.

Florence Pugh will play Yelena Belova in Black Widow whose story will be fleshed out in this newest addition to the MCU.

Her relationship with Natasha Romanoff’s character is described as a sisterly-rivalry. I am very confident in the idea that Black Widow will conclude with Natasha handing over the metaphoric baton of the title of Black Widow to Yelena Belova and she, like Natasha Romanoff, will have to prove her loyalty to the world as a good guy in a future Black Widow sequel.

In fact, this could be the secret Black Widow trilogy we have always wanted except with Florence Pugh at the helm in the next two outings. How cool would that be?

With Avengers: Endgame bringing about the end of an era, it seems that the creative minds behind the franchise are looking to either move on to new characters or reboot other characters. It’s why Falcon will become the new Captain America, Spider-Man has become the new Iron Man of sorts, Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster will become the new Thor, She-Hulk will replace The Hulk, Kate Bishop will become the new Hawkeye, and Yelena Belova will be the new Black Widow. Even James Gunn has confirmed that beyond Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 we will see a new Guardians team in the MCU.

Things are changing…fast and I’m excited about the ride.

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

Captain America May Return to the MCU, Just Not in the Way We Think

Captain America, our beloved patriotic hero who found his way into our hearts, if not immediately, then gradually over the years. Unlike Iron Man, Captain America did not perish at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame but he did pass over the mantle to Sam Wilson/Falcon to become the new Captain America in the coming years. It’s sad to think we won’t have Steve Rogers anymore in the next few phases of the MCU and yet…maybe we will still have him around. Not in a literal sense but in a figurative sense. You’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Well, let me elaborate.

As you may remember Steve Rogers was tasked with putting all of the stones back but instead of returning to his friends like he should’ve he decided to stay in the past and live out his life with Peggy.

In Captain America: The Winter Soldier Peggy tells the reporter in a video: “That was a difficult winter. A blizzard had trapped half our battalion behind the German line. Steve, Captain Rogers, he fought his way through a HYDRA blockade that had pinned down our allies for months. He saved over a thousand men. Including the man who would become my husband as it turns out. Even after he died Steve was still changing my life.”

Immediately we assumed that she had gone on and married some guy in the army that Steve had saved but apparently that didn’t happen. A particular sentence in this scene now stands out to me. It’s when Peggy says: “Even after he died Steve was still changing my life.” Continue reading Captain America May Return to the MCU, Just Not in the Way We Think

Black Widow Is Here To Stay…Just Not in the Way We Think

Scarlet Johansson will star as Black Widow one more time in the upcoming Black Widow standalone film set to arrive next May. With filming having come to an official end, at least for now before reshoots may be in order, the Black Widow is well underway and we’ll most likely see a teaser trailer in the coming months or so. However, there are already rumors that, depending on the film’s success, there may be a Black Widow sequel. But how can there be a Black Widow sequel without Scarlet Johansson? Very simple. The Black Widow movie is setting up another story of a new hero. Her name is Yelena Belova.

It has already been confirmed that young actress Florence Pugh, known for her roles in Fighting With my Family and Midsommar, will indeed play Yelena Belova in the Black Widow movie.

Her relationship with Natasha Romanoff’s character is described as a sisterly-rivalry. I am very confident in the idea that Black Widow will conclude with Natasha handing over the metaphoric baton of the title of Black Widow to Yelena Belova and she, like Natasha Romanoff, will have to prove her loyalty to the world as a good guy in a future Black Widow sequel.

Throwback Friday: The MCU’s Phase 4 Needs To Bring These Twelve Characters To Life

With Captain Marvel coming out today Phase 4 of the MCU is drawing closer and closer. So for this week’s Throwback Friday I’m listing twelve characters that would be fantastic in upcoming Marvel movies. Enjoy!

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for ten years and it doesn’t look like the franchise is coming to an end anytime soon. With Avengers: Endgame about to bring a conclusion to a 22-movie storyline, a new journey is going to begin and that means new heroes will have to arrive to save the day. But who will those new heroes be? I’m not going to pretend that I’m an expert on Marvel characters (I am not) but I have done some research and discovered some very cool characters that could be central pieces to this evolving story. So, here are the characters I would love to see debut in the upcoming Phase 4 of the MCU.

1. Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)

The older Avengers’ reign is coming to an end (quickly) and that means we need new heroes to take their place. With Spider-Man’s debut in Captain America: Civil War the idea of the Young Avengers coming to fruition could easily become something very special and Kate Bishop/Hawkeye is a perfect candidate for that youthful organization.

It’s also perfect because her storyline is simple. She grew up idolizing Hawkeye (he was her favorite Avenger) and decided when she got old enough to follow his footsteps as a bow-wielding superhero. Sounds great if you ask me.
