In Case You’re Wondering, ‘What If…?’ Is Really Good!

Marvel Studios just can’t seem to lose. Even with their first animated series, they still manage to elate and surprise at every turn and the same can be said about the second episode (actually the best episode so far) of What If…?

This episode features T’Challa as Star-Lord and honestly, I was not ready for all of the surprises in this episode. I found myself smiling and giggling throughout the episode’s run and when it concluded I felt a strange sense of sadness because the episode was, in fact, over even though I wanted so much more!

As a Marvel fan, this series is giving me everything I want and a little bit more. The stories are fun, the changes are thrilling, and the possibilities, thanks to Loki, are endless.

Of course, I must confront the unfortunate truth that this is Chadwick Boseman’s last performance as T’Challa. Thankfully he will lend a voice to this character for three more episodes so that’s a welcome surprise but it’s still a bit sad hearing him and seeing how awesome the character is knowing that he has, in fact, passed away. Rest in power king.

I don’t want to end this post on a somber note so I’ll leave it at this. If you think this series has the chance to be boring trust me. It isn’t. In fact, it’s really fun and worth the watch, especially if you’re missing some good Marvel entertainment.

The next two episodes are going to have me doing cartwheels. Next week’s episode will feature Loki up to whatever new shenanigans he will find for himself and the week after that we’ll be getting Doctor Strange’s episode. Honestly, I could pop just knowing that information.

All in all, another great episode from a fantastic new animated series.

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

Movie Review Flashback: My Review of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

So, I just recently watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (a.k.a GOTG Vol. 2) and I was skeptical. I had heard a lot of reviews and not a lot of them were good. A lot of people said that it was decent but not nearly as good as the first one was. And then there was a choice few who said it was pretty entertaining. So when I watched it for the first time I didn’t know what to expect.

I had already had a bad impression because of all of the advertising for the movie. It was like everywhere I looked there was GOTG…and this was months before the movie was even supposed to come out. A lot of times when movies are advertising heavily way before the movie comes out (like Batman vs. Superman) the movie usually isn’t good. So that was already a red alert. And then the content they did show wasn’t that great looking. The first GOTG had me interested from the very teaser that long time ago at the end of 2013. This one…not so much.

So the movie started and I was just hoping it wouldn’t be as bad as Ant-Man because that was a pretty corny Marvel film. (I actually like Ant-Man nowadays which is hilarious.) And then the movie ended. And then the very next day I watched it again because there was so much going on I just had to make sure I got all of the itty-bitty details. And now I’m here, writing this post, and I hope you enjoy. Continue reading Movie Review Flashback: My Review of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

I Think I’ve Discovered An Infinity Stone Connection

Joe and Anthony Russo helped answer a lot of questions that people had about Avengers: Endgame but one thing they never cleared up was a particularly strange moment that happened toward the end of Infinity War. Let me explain.

After Thanos does the Infinity Snap, hence wiping out half of all life, he goes to this otherworldly realm where he sees his daughter Gamora at the same age she was when he first met her. Gamora asks him a simple question.

“Did you do it?”

He responds sadly, knowing that his mission was only successful because he killed her, “Yes.”

Gamora seems on the verge of tears, not upset because he killed her but instead it seems she’s disappointed. Disappointed in the idea that he would be willing to sacrifice something he loved so dearly to do so much harm.

This sequence has always intrigued me because it felt like there was a deeper meaning to that scene and yet Endgame didn’t help elaborate on that scene, nor did the Russo Brothers. And yet, I think I’ve found at least a piece of the answer to this strange scene. Continue reading I Think I’ve Discovered An Infinity Stone Connection

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Star-Lord

Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy seems like a rascally scoundrel with a bombastic attitude at first meeting but there’s a lot more emotional depth to him than meets the eye. Having only one parent to provide for him as a child made losing his beloved mother as a child all the more heartbreaking. He never wanted to show weakness or emotion due to Yondu’s reckless upbringing so he hid all of his sadder emotions behind a careless facade whose main goal was getting rich and finding chicks.

Star-Lord’s kinder side, however, would lead him to becoming a galactic hero and definitely one of my favorite characters in the MCU. Here are his character posters. Enjoy!

Guardians of the Galaxy

With Guardians of the Galaxy being Star-Lord’s debut this poster had to show him in a very heroic light and as the clear leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy so it’s no surprise that this poster looks so awesome. With his blasters in hand and the serious expression on his face Star-Lord looks like a hero fighting alongside to save the galaxy.

What’s Your Favorite Marvel Love Story?

Love is a powerful thing. It mends hearts, brings people together, provides happiness to even the most sorrowful, and it is a beautiful thing to observe. Love stories are some of my favorite movie storylines and superhero films always provide a good love story. So, on that note, this is the topic of today’s Who’s Your Favorite? I hope you enjoy.

Vision and Scarlet Witch

While this romance was doomed from the beginning it still is a beautiful relationship nonetheless. Vision, an android looking for purpose and understanding in the world, found love as his relationship with Wanda Maximoff grew. And Wanda, who lost her brother in the Battle of Sokovia, was also trying to find her place among her fellow Avengers. Vision helped fill that void that she possessed and it wasn’t long before her friendship grew into something more.

It’s a shame that we weren’t able to see more with them as a couple but then again, who knows what the future holds.

T’Challa and Nakia

A simple yet perfect relationship. Nakia, as an independent woman, didn’t let her past relationship with T’Challa hold her down to remaining in Wakanda as a Wakandan housewife for the rest of her life. And that is what is so beautiful about this relationship. Their willingness to hear each other out and be there for one another when the need arises is very touching.
