It’s an idle Tuesday with not a lot going on for me to post about. Granted, I’m sure I could do some digging and find something to write about. But instead I’m just going to share some fun Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings videos from last week! Like a new quickie trailer.
And a featurette that just explores the movie a bit more.
Still very excited about this movie. Still very worried that the resurgence of the virus might ruin everything. We shall see! But Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings comes out on Sept. 3. It’s only a month away!
I did not know this was coming today, but here it is! A new, fuller trailer for Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage! And this thing is chockablock full of Carnage everywhere!
Man, oh man! Would you look at that! They’re going full Carnage, it seems. He’s got the look, he’s got the viciousness. This is apparently what moviegoers want to see! I’m cool with it too, though I’m still salty that they didn’t use Jenny Slate as Scream in the first Venom movie. That would have been so much better!
I liked the first Venom movie well enough. It was a crap movie, but the Venom/Eddie Brock stuff was fun, and that looks to continue for the sequel. So we’ll see.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is scheduled to come out on Sept. 24…but you’ll notice that neither the trailer nor the description have that date attached. Considering COVID is on the rise again, I wouldn’t be surprised if this film gets bumped back.
This was a surprise, but a welcome one. New Pokemon Snap for the Nintendo Switch is getting some free DLC tomorrow! This announcement came out of nowhere. It just popped up on YouTube the other day. I hadn’t heard any talk about this, which is a shame, because I loved this game and was hoping for DLC someday. But I’d also just written it off as one and done.
It looks like we’re getting an entire new river biome to travel, and a level where we shrink down to smaller than bugs. Both sound great! And maybe we’ll luck out and this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to DLC for New Pokemon Snap. Here’s hoping!
The free DLC will download on Tuesday.
Welcome to the world of reviewing comics! Not too many reviews this week because I was really only in the mood to pick up comics I was actually interested in reading this week instead of expanding out to others I was meh about. So we’ve got the likes of SWORD and the new Superman: Son of Kal-El.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #5 for a perfect ending to a perfect comic book. This whole adventure was phenomenal and the ending is pretty great.
Meanwhile, I watched and very much enjoyed Masters of the Universe: Revelation last weekend. People are complaining online, as they are wont to do, but I had a blast. And I am definitely an old school He-Man fan from back in the 80s. And then by this time next week, I’ll have seen The Suicide Squad! So that’s exciting!
Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #5, Static: Season One #2, Superman: Son of Kal-El #1 and S.W.O.R.D. #7.Read the rest of this entry
Entertainment Weekly put out a nice article yesterday revealing that the Hawkeye TV show will come out on Disney+ on Nov. 24, just in time for families to get together and discuss the first episode on Thanksgiving! And check out this first official image.
That’s Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld as Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. We know various things about this show and all of them sound good. We’re going to get shades of the Trenchcoat Mafia. There’s rumors of some other characters showing up that I don’t want to spoil here. It’s basically sounding like a really solid show.
Hawkeye will be six episodes and that will take us through the end of the year. Likely that means Ms. Marvel will debut sometime in January, because Marvel doesn’t want to overlap shows. And all of that sounds good to me!
