The next Marvel movie is Black Widow, a trip into the past to explore Natasha’s spy life in Russia. Black Widow comes out on May 1 and we haven’t seen too much news…until Marvel decided to randomly and awesomely release the first trailer! And it’s a trailer packed with stuff!
Looks awesome! David Harbour obviously steals the show as Red Guardian. But we’ve got a good look at Taskmaster! And the other Black Widow. And our main Black Widow looks great in a white costume!
Word has it this takes place shortly after Captain America: Civil War, which sounds good to me! What an exciting surprise this trailer was today!
It’s that time of year! When Joker comes out on DVD and the internet is awash with Joker content to capitalize on the SEO! I’m no internet expert, nor was I particularly a fan of Joker, but I’m all about sharing some quality-made internet comedy.
Like How Joker Should Have Ended!
Once again, the HISHE people focus more on their own running gags than on an actual alternate ending to Joker…but this one was still funny. Solid comedy all-around, including the attention to detail of an all-80s Villains Pub.
Then we’ve also got the Tell It Animated guy doing the Joker!
He’s also doing a ton of ads, apparently. But hey, I’m no fool. You make that money, friend! You turn your awesome idea into a moneymaker! You make it happen!
And do Iron Man next. Or James Bond.
What a week for comics! We’ve got three Dawn of X comics this week, but none of them earn the top spot from me. Honestly, I haven’t been all that excited about Dawn of X so far. None of my favorite X-Men are involved and none of the comics are taking full advantage of the new status quo, at least how I saw it. I’m going to start dropping titles soon enough…
Comic Book of the Week was a close call between Power Rangers and Valkyrie, but I think I’ll give it to Jane Foster for some truly awesome moments this issue. Power Rangers has won it enough, let’s get some new blood here.
Meanwhile, would anybody be interested in my favorite comics of the past decade? Everybody on the internet is doing decade retrospectives, but I can barely remember what I liked last month, let alone a decade ago! But I’ve been looking back and remembering some of my favorite comics of the past 10 years and thought I might do that article. Let me know if you’d be interested in the comments!
Comic Reviews: Fallen Angels #2, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #45, New Mutants #2, Scream: Curse of Carnage #1, Valkyrie #5 and X-Force #2.
Honestly, we should all just be happy that a Runaways TV show happened at all! This thing was always in the works, always in the conversation, and I’m glad it happened. I’m a big fan of the show and I’ll be sad to see it go at the end of the new, third season.
Such is the price we all must pay for the awesome Marvel Disney+ shows on the horizon.
Maybe this means that we can wait a couple of years and then Disney+ will relaunch the Runaways TV show and make it like Rainbow Rowell’s current Runaways comic, picking up with the team several years after their initial heyday. That would be a blast!
Season 3 starts on Dec. 13!
Good news, everybody! Strong Guy has finally been spotted on Krakoa as part of Dawn of X! Every X-Person ever, hero and villain, has supposedly been resurrected on Krakoa, but some of my favorite characters have been missing since the big relaunch.
But Strong Guy shows up in a big group shot from this week’s X-Force #2! He’s also, apparently, gone back to his 90s costume. Probably because of the upcoming action figure.
I’m glad to see he’s no longer dead. Vive le Strong Guy!
Also in this picture is our first confirmation that the Blob is also on Krakoa. He wasn’t in the big villain arrival scene during House of X, so I was holding out hope that Marvel was planning something special for Blob in the wake of Leah Williams’ excellent take on the character during the Age of X-Man.
This appearance doesn’t negate potential plans for Marvel and Williams, so I’m going to hold onto hope that something excellent might happen.
Now to sit back and wait for Multiple Man and Mimic to finally appear…
