6 Things I Want to See in the Black Widow Movie

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!

That’s some good movie poster

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!

First Black Widow Trailer, Outta Nowhere!

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!

Death Stranding Looks Weird as Heck; Avengers Looks Better

A couple new video game trailers came out yesterday for some very anticipated games.

First up is Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s new masterpiece that just looks weird as heck! I think you play a delivery man trying to remake America?

Honestly, I don’t want to look up any details about Death Stranding. This looks weird as heck and I don’t want to know anything about it before playing. Though I’ll probably wait and see what the reviews say, see if this is any good. I’m a big Metal Gear Solid fan, so I’m hopeful.

Meanwhile, the Avengers video game put out a new trailer that actually explains what this game is going to be. And it looks a little better than all of the fancy story trailers we’ve already seen.

I’m still not confident that this is going to be more than an on-rails punch’em up, but we’ll see. I’m definitely interested in a big, full scale Avengers game, especially playing as Kamala Khan.

So we’ll see what the future of video games hold!

Kamala Khan is Definitely Going to Star in the Avengers Video Game

We guessed this when the first trailers came out, but the upcoming Avengers video game is going to star Kamala Khan! That’s great! Though this first footage of her gameplay still makes me think this game is going to be totally on rails.

The cut scene animations, story and character acting all seem great, though. As excited as I am for a good Avengers game, especially one starring Ms. Marvel, I’m probably going to wait for the reviews on this one. This game could have all the polish in the world, but still be boring if you’re just doing what the game tells you to do at all times.

We’ll see. The Avengers game comes out on May 15.

The 6 Silliest Corporate Partnership Superheroes

I’ve started to notice a new Marvel trailer playing during my recent trips to the movie theater: The Fresh-Men. It’s not for a new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though it liberally borrows some ideas. Oh no, this is different, in all the most hilarious ways. The Fresh-Men is Marvel’s latest group of corporate partnership superheroes.

Corp Part List 01

Coming soon to Disney+

Mavel and AXE Body Spray got together to design some advertising superheroes. This happens more often than you would expect, and sure enough, I’ve found enough examples to put together an entire List of Six! Original, fully-designed superheroes created for a corporate partnership between a comic book company and whatever random corporation or business group is sponsoring the ads. This silliness typically leads to a one-shot comic starring the new character, often created by some top name comic talent. It’s crazy and it’s funny.

There are few things I find more equally hilarious and disingenuous as corporate advertising. So join me after the jump for six pretty pathetic times when this type of advertising attempted to leech off the hipness of comic book superheroes!
