‘Hawkeye’: It’s Happening!

It’s happening everybody. The Hawkeye Disney+ series is currently filming and our first look at Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop is here.

It’s official, everyone! Hailee Steinfeld is Kate Bishop and here we see her decked out in her outfit which looks perfect, by the way.

The cast for Hawkeye has been released and now it can also be confirmed that Florence Pugh will be reprising her role as Yelena Belova in this series. Will this series feature a new Black Widow-Hawkeye friendship? One between Kate Bishop and Belova? We’ll see but I’m already loving the series so far and I can’t wait to see its first teaser sometime next year.

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

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.

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.

Yes, There Is Yet Another Marvel Surprise

Apparently, Disney wants to make our heads throb with a neverending headache with all of this Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney news to try to digest and yes, another Marvel surprise has just arrived. So, because it just dropped, I had to share it with you.

Black Widow Concept Art

This morning I shared a post with you highlighting Black Widow’s stunning new all-white costume and it appears that concept art for the design has just been released at D23 Expo. But wait, that’s not all.

Boom! The first official Black Widow movie poster has been dropped at, you heard it, D23 Expo. And now my brain is officially fried…

This poster is expectedly awesome. Black Widow looks fierce and ready to kick butt in a brand new suit. Yelena Belova (and what appears to be a bunch of other Black Widows?) are to the left of her. On the right, we see the first look at David Harbour as Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as Melina/potential-Iron-Maiden. And above Black Widow looms Taskmaster who clearly looks super-duper cool.

And just when I thought I couldn’t love Marvel anymore this weekend this just dropped. Wow.

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