The MCU is getting bigger and bigger, meaning more and more characters are being introduced to this massive franchise. After Black Widow, and considering that there’s a good chance we won’t be getting any new characters until Hawkeye later this year, I thought this would be as good a time as any to update my ranking.
(This ranking will include mostly heroes but will also include my favorite villains, or villains who will surely show up again in the future as potential antiheroes.)
Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun film but its weakest element, undoubtedly, is its villain. Played by Hannah John-Kamen, Ghost is a character who’s kind of interesting but ultimately pretty lame. But I am intrigued to see her story continue in the future and how she could potentially be utilized in a potential Thunderbolts movie.
Quicksilver was cool…in the X-Men movies. In Marvel Studios, he’s one of the more forgettable characters.
WandaVision is over but it left some nuggets, like all MCU installments, along the way. One of the biggest teases for the future of the MCU was the return of Vision via White Vision in the finale. We saw him get his memories back and then he flew away to who knows where.
In the final post-credits scene we see Wanda somewhere by a beautiful lake drinking tea and enjoying life but she is alone. White Vision is nowhere to be seen and the scene itself didn’t set up any highly-anticipated reunion between her and this new version of Vision. So…what’s going to happen next for the two lovebirds? Honestly, I think Wanda’s epic love story with the humanoid synthezoid ended with the finale of WandaVision and now I believe it will be best if she moves on.
Wanda Maximoff has experienced potentially the most grief out of any character besides Thor thanks to the fact that she lost her parents as a child, her brother during the Sokovian battle, and then her boyfriend over and over again. Does she really want to have to feel that pain again, especially since her story seems to be barreling toward villainy and the eventual destruction of the world? I don’t think so. And honestly, just because White Vision has Vision’s memories doesn’t exactly mean that he’s suddenly deeply in love with Wanda.
This latest episode of WandaVision was next level sad. I’m talking punch after punch of emotion all the way to that chill-inducing conclusion that left me utterly floored. I have a lot of thoughts but I’m going to whittle it down to struck me the most.
I was honestly worried that the seventh episode of the series was going to leave me underwhelmed and wishing for more but honestly, it was perfect. It offered just enough tantalizing tidbits to leave me satisfied and it left us with a cliffhanger that’s going to be a gas!
(You see what I did there?)
But anyway, I’m here to talk about the episode, its most fascinating moment, and what we could expect with these last two episodes. Enjoy!
WandaVision has been quite the series so far. It’s had twists and turns, shocking surprises and underwhelming moments, but one thing that has been consistent is the great art drawn for the show that has got artists buzzing. So, here’s some fantastic WandaVision fan art that I wanted to share today. Enjoy!
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. It’s stunning in its apparent simplicity and yet its overwhelming complexity. Just wow.
