A few days ago, the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home supposedly leaked online. I say “supposedly” because I would honestly be shocked at the idea of anything in the world of entertainment happening without Disney somehow knowing about it beforehand.
Anyway, I held off on sharing the leaked trailer because I have integrity or something. Or maybe I was just scared I would get sued or the site would be taken down. I don’t know. I held off for some reason. But now that the trailer has been officially released …. well, here it is:
Apparently, Peter’s life has gotten difficult now that the world knows that he’s Spider-Man. Since Tony Stark is dead and Robert Downey, Jr. would probably demand too much money to play Tony’s hitherto unknown twin brother, Peter decides to get a new bearded mentor but, in typical Peter fashion, he screws up Dr. Strange’s spell by talking too much and soon, universes are literally colliding.
If I sound like I’m being snarky, that’s just the way I always sound. I love these movies in all of their occasionally silly glory and I’m really looking forward to Spider-Man: No Way Home. I really enjoyed the previous two movies and this trailer is certainly more entertaining than the one that dropped for TheEternals. I actually think that Tom Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch have the potential to be a pretty good team. Plus, I know a lot of our readers are probably really excited about Alfred Molina showing up there at the end. Will the other Spider-Men make an appearance? We’ll find out soon.
I apologize for being a few days late in sharing this. It’s been a busy week. What if …. it hadn’t been a busy week!? Well, I probably would have shared this trailer yesterday.
Anyway, What If….? is the first official animated series in the MCU. It appears to take moments from MCU history and ask, “What if…..” Like, What If Clint Had Sacrificed His Life Instead of Natasha? That’s something I’d like to see.
It’s a new month and that means that it’s time for a new Black Widow trailer. How long have we been waiting for this film now? Where that old lady from Titanic? Has it really been over 80 years? I think that’s an exaggeration but we have been waiting for quite a while now.
Personally, I just hope this movie provides some sort of justice for the character. I’m still massively annoyed with how Natasha was treated in Avengers: Endgame and hearing that Black Widow 1) takes place before Endgame and 2) features Florence Pugh as the character who took Natasha’s place in the comic books does not particularly make me happy. At this point, though, I’ve been waiting so long to see the film that I’m just hoping Scarlett at least gets to beat a few people up with style.
Here’s the latest trailer. Black Widow will finally be released on July 9th!
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?
As I’ve said before, both on this site and on twitter, I have mixed feeling about the upcoming Black Widow film. On the one hand, Natasha was my favorite member of the Avengers and I’m glad that she’s finally getting a solo film. On the other hand, it annoys me that she’s only getting a solo film after being killed off in Avengers: Endgame. Don’t even get me started on the screwed-up logic of her sacrificing her life when Clint was the one who had basically spent 5 years killing everyone that he met. Natasha may have made mistakes when she was a spy but at least she was never a serial killer!
Apparently, the Black Widow solo film takes place in between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War and it seems very likely that it’s also going to serve as an origin story for a character played by Florence Pugh, who may end up becoming the new Black Widow. I hope that’s not true but, from what I’ve heard, it seems probable. I’m not particularly excited about the prospect of that happening. I don’t want a replacement Black Widow. I want the original to come back to life and I want Clint to do the right thing.
To be honest, though, I’m now at a point where I just want to see the damn movie. That release date has been moved around so much that I no longer care whether or not the film’s any good or not. I don’t care whether or not they’re going to do the right thing and resurrect Natasha from the dead. I JUST WANT TO SEE THE DAMN MOVIE! Hell, I’ll even spend the extra 30 to see it in Disney Plus, I don’t care. I JUST WANT TO SEE THE MOVIE!
Anyway, with all that in mind, Black Widow is going to be released on July 9th and it’s about time! Here’s the latest trailer:
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.
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!
Out of the three shows that are featured in the teaser below, it’s the one with Wanda and Vision that most interests me. I can’t wait to see what happens with those two characters. And, of course, there’s no way I couldn’t smile a little when Loki popped up. His death in Infinity War depressed me almost as much as Black Widow’s death in Endgame.
You would think that I would be super excited about the fact that my favorite MCU character, the Black Widow, is finally getting her own solo film. (That Brie Larson’s anemic Captain Marvel got her solo film before the Black Widow is an injustice that I’ll never get over.) And I guess I am excited. The trailer, which you can watch below, is pretty good. It looks like an attempt to bring some Bourne/007 action to MCU and that would seem like the perfect approach to take to the character.
If I’m less than enthusiastic, it’s because 1) I’m still upset over what happened to the Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame and 2) this film is a prequel as opposed to a sequel. Which means that, despite starring Scarlett Johansson, the film is not going to open with the Natasha coming back to life. (You have to wonder if, with recent events. anyone in the MCU regrets killing off one of their best characters as opposed to letting Jeremy Renner’s archer take the fall.) Florence Pugh, in Black Widow, is playing a character who apparently took over the Black Widow name in the comic books so here’s my fear: the film will feature a mid-credits scene of Florence Pugh at Natasha’s grave, announcing that she’ll carry on her legacy. That’s my fear.
