The first trailer for the upcoming Black Widow movie came out of nowhere last week, and I liked it! Of course, I’m a huge Marvel fanboy, so I’m probably going to like everything they produce from now until the heat death of the universe. So you best believe I’m excited for Black Widow!
But what’s going to be in the movie? We know it takes place prior to Avengers: Infinity War. We know Taskmaster is the villain, and that Natasha will team up with the other comic book Black Widow, as well as Red Guardian. And we know it’s going to be heavy on the crazy action and adventure. There’s probably also going to be some trouble with the Red Room.
Still, there’s a lot of movie left wide open for cameos, Easter Eggs, callbacks and more. So join me after the jump for the little things I’d like to see in the Black Widow movie! And feel free to share some of your own ideas in the comments!
We’ve got both the new Jumanji and Star Wars films coming up, so there’s been a whole mess of new trailers for big projects coming down the pipe. I love trailers, so I’m pretty thrilled! And you all get to see them shared by me!
Like this trailer for Free Guy, the new Ryan Reynolds movie in which he’s an NPC in a video game who realizes what’s going on.
Looks pretty good! I trust Ryan Reynolds movies these days, even if I can never trust screenwriters to truly understand how video games work. This game looks like a Grand Theft Auto Online type of game, so hopefully they can’t mess that up.
Free Guy comes out on July 3.
I liked the recent, all-women Ghostbusters reboot. I understand a lot of criticism it received, but I was entertained while watching in the theater. But Hollywood and fandom are fickle, and now comes a proper Ghostbusters sequel, pegged as the long-awaited Ghostbusters 3!
But numbers aren’t chic anymore. Modern sequels are all about the subtitle! Behold, Ghostbusters: Afterlife!
I like it! I like the grounded, serious vibe. I like the mystery and the reverence. I like Paul Rudd. Is he going to become a Ghostbuster? That would be sweet. I’m a little surprised we didn’t get any original character cameos. Are those going to be smaller roles? Maybe they want the movie to stand on its right now right.
It definitely stands on its own in this first trailer! I liked it a lot.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife comes out on July 10.
The Wonder Woman sequel is on the way! Wonder Woman 1984 is just around the corner, and it’s first trailer has arrived out of nowhere! And I’m not entirely sure what the movie is about!
We’ve got Steve Trevor back from the dead and getting confused by the 1980s. We’ve got Cheetah not being a cheetah. We’ve got a really weird looking Maxwell Lord. And we’ve got Wonder Woman using her lasso to swing from lightning bolts! I bet that was an exciting pitch in the Wonder Woman 1984 scripting process!
I’m still going to get my hopes up for a good movie! Wonder Woman 1984 comes out on June 5.
How cool was that new Black Widow trailer this past week? We’re on the verge of entering a new round of superhero movies! I can’t wait! Thankfully, plenty of good comics to read until then, including Batman, various X-Men and Lois Lane!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Green Lantern: Blackstars for an utterly hilarious takedown of DC Comics. Grant Morrison is creatively savage.
Meanwhile, even though I gave up reviewing Magnificent Ms. Marvel, I’m still reading the comic. And I’m pleased to report that — SPOILERS — that stupid new costume of hers has turned out to be evil. Thank the stars!
Comic Reviews: Batman #84, Doctor Doom #3, Excalibur #3, Green Lantern: Blackstars #2, Lois Lane #6, Marauders #3 and X-Men #3.
