Hailee Steinfeld and Jeremy Renner hit their marks in the Hawkeye Trailer


Hawkeye finds Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) back in the spotlight when a vigilante similar to the Ronin appears in NYC. This leads him to Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld, Bumblebee), an archer who’s just as good as our Avenger. What she’s into, we don’t know, but it makes for an excellent team up. The show bridges the character we know with the 2005 comic counterpart (with some changes to tie things into the current Marvel Cinematic Universe). With a Christmas setting, part of me hoped that Shane Black had a hand in it some where. Not to worry, as Mad Men and Bridgerton writer/producer Jonathan Igla is the showrunner here.

Hawkeye also stars Brian d’Arcy James (Spotlight), Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), Zahn McClarnon (Doctor Sleep), Ava Russo (Avengers: Endgame), and Florence Pugh (Black Widow).

Hawkeye premieres on Disney Plus on November 24th.

Here’s The Trailer For Loki!


Like many people, I was broken-hearted when it appeared that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki was killed during Avengers: Infinity War. Then I was happy to see that he came back (in a fashion) in Avengers: Endgame! As for the upcoming Disney+ series featuring Loki …. well, let’s just watch the trailer and patiently wait for June 11th, shall we?

It looks good to me but, of course, you knew I was going to say that. I’m among those who feels that Tom Hiddleston can do no wrong so I’m going to be happy to see him in just about everything. Does this series make Loki the first Marvel villain to get his own MCU vehicle? Good for him. Who doesn’t love Loki?

Here’s The Latest Teaser For The Falcon and The Winter Soldier!


Here’s the latest teaser/trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Solider.  This show will begin streaming on March 19th, at which point we’ll see if it’s destined to become a pop culture phenomena like WandaVision or if it’s going to go the route of Netflix’s Marvel shows.

Judge for yourself:

Hey! Here’s Yet Another Trailer for WandaVision!


Hey!  Did you know that WandaVision is going to be streaming in another five days!?

Well, if you didn’t, you obviously haven’t been spending much time on YouTube or Twitter and I guess you haven’t been reading this site much either so shame on you.  It seems like, every day, there’s another trailer, preview, or teaser for WandaVision.  The trailers mix black-and-white sitcom-style laugh tracked scenes with color scenes that seem like they’re from a 70s soap opera.  My assumption is that the show features Wanda creating an alternate universe where she and Vision can attempt to live happily, one that I’m going to guess she created out of her knowledge of old television shows.  That’s a nice thought and, of course, an alternate universe means that Marvel will have an easy way to correct past mistakes.

“Robert Downey, Jr. wants to come back to the MCU?  Go snatch Tony Stark out of an alternate universe!”

“Everyone finally realized that it was freaking stupid to kill off the Black Widow and that the MCU is better with Scarlett Johansson than without her?  QUICKLY!  TO THE ALTERNATE UNIVERSE!”

As I said, I think it’s a good idea and, the next time I find myself in my office, watching the retro TV stations, I will be sure to think about how I can use each episode of Ghost Whisperer to create a new universe.  And, as snarky as I am about the constant trailers, I am actually looking forward to WandaVision.  Even though I think the MCU reached it’s logical end with Avengers: Endgame, I’m still looking forward to seeing if Marvel can keep their winning streak alive.  Thanks to the pandemic, it’s been a while since we had a new MCU production and I’m a bit curious to see whether or not that absence is going to help or hinder the franchise.

Add to that, I like Elizabeth Olsen.  I like Paul Bettany.  I’ll watch them in almost anything.  Elizabeth Olsen deserves better than to just be the romantic interest in a Godzilla film.  Paul Bettany deserves better than to just be everyone’s eccentric British friend (or the European villain in the latest action movie).  As played by Bettany and Olsen, Vision and Wanda were two of the more interesting characters to be found in the MCU.  Both the actors and the characters deserve a chance in the spotlight and I’m happy to see them getting one.

Here’s the latest trailer:

Finally, all of twitter was abuzz (bleh!  Did I really write that?), with the news that some people were allowed to watch the first three episodes of WandaVision.  Their reactions were so incredibly positive that it would be good to remember that early reactions are always overly positive to almost every new TV show and movie.  I mean, if your entire career is dependent upon keeping Disney happy and maintaining your access to “company insiders,” it’s only common sense to have a positive reaction to the latest Disney product.  Always take these things with a grain of salt, I’m saying.

That said, I really hope WandaVision is good.  We’ll all find out in five days!

Here’s The Latest Trailer for WandaVision!


Well, it’s a new day and I guess that means that it’s time for another enigmatic trailer for WandaVision.  It’s been interesting to note that, even with all the trailers that Disney Plus has released for this show, it’s still hard to get a definite feel for just what exactly WandaVision is going to be.  That’s not a bad thing, of course.  The enigmatic is intriguing.

Judging from the trailers that have been released so far, this is either going to be brilliant or a disaster.  I don’t really see much room in between those two extremes. I am going to guess that Wanda and Vision are living in some sort of alternate reality, one that Wanda constructed from a lifetime of watching old TV shows.  That’s my guess, anyways.  I’ve come across a few people online who have a much darker interpretation — i.e., Wanda is actually in some sort of coma and the entire show is her dying fantasy of having a perfect life with Vision.  I mean, seriously — that would be like a Marvel show from the darkest timeline.  I would have to put a blue streak in my hair if that happened!  (“Life got dark!” to quote Britta Perry.)

Anyway, this latest trailer continues to mix comedy with darkness.  I’ll definitely give this show a try, if just because I love both Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen and I don’t feel that either one of them has really gotten all of the opportunities that they deserve.  Disney Plus, obviously, is hoping that they’ll have another Mandalorian-style hit with this one and it is interesting to consider that, with the pandemic and all, this will be the first new MCU release in a year.  To a certain extent, the reception of this show will answer the question of whether or not the MCU can continue to thrive after the apocalyptic conclusion of Avengers: Endgame.  The show will be available on Disney Plus on January 15th so we should have our answers in just another two weeks!
