Our First Look at WandaVision is Perfectly Trippy

The pandemic really did a number on all those awesome Marvel TV shows we were expecting. Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been delayed until next year. But it seems we’ll still be getting WandaVision before the end of 2020. In fact, here’s the first full trailer for this trippy show!

Looks amazing! Weird, trippy and all manner of nutso, this trailer looks totally perfect for the show they’ve promised. I can’t wait!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/19/20

Good news, everybody! The Harley Quinn cartoon has been renewed for a third season! How wonderful. And oh how we needed good news. Meanwhile, reviews for Batman and a brand new Iron Man relaunch.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #7 because it is legitimately fun and features a whole bunch of Beta Ray Bill! If only the new Iron Man featured a Beta Ray Bill cameo…

Stately

Meanwhile, I skipped the latest issue of X-Men this week. It’s just one big madness-inducing recap of whatever weird new lore Jonathan Hickman is building for Krakoan history? I dunno. He loses me when he delves into this stuff, even more so than when Grant Morrison does it. In better news, I’m playing the Avengers video game finally…though I don’t particularly like it.

Comic Reviews: Batman #99, Iron Man #1 and Thor #7.

Tatiana Maslany to Play She-Hulk!

Crazy big Marvel casting news arrived yesterday in that Tatiana Maslany will play Jennifer Walters and She-Hulk in the upcoming Disney+ show! That’s awesome! Everybody agreed that Maslany was great in Orphan Black, so I’m excited for her as She-Hulk!

This will definitely require a ton of courtroom scenes

The She-Hulk show is set to start filming early next year, so that’s cool. I’m confident they will go with a full CGI/mo-cap look for actual She-Hulk, just like with Professor Hulk in Endgame. These are TV shows gifted with MCU budget, so they’ll make it happen and they’ll make it look great! Disney has every reason in the world to go full speed ahead on making these Marvel shows a must-see for Disney+.

For example, here’s hoping we get that Mark Ruffalo/Hulk cameo! They’ve got to do it, right? There’s no way he skips out on making a quick appearance or two.

Now we go back to waiting patiently for them to cast Kamala Khan!

Kang the Conqueror is Coming to…Ant-Man 3?!

Good news, everybody! The Marvel Cinematic Universe production machine is kicking back into some kind of gear! The TV shows have resumed filming, and work is apparently being done on Ant-Man 3 because Deadline has announced the casting of actor Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror!

One is good at fashion, one is not

Marvel hasn’t officially commented on the role, but Deadline isn’t about to report something like this without some confidence. So I would say this is pretty solid casting news.

And it’s cool news, too! Kang the Conqueror stands to be a great villain, and hopefully Majors isn’t just going to be part of Ant-Man 3. Why is he part of a considerably small movie, instead of Avengers 5? Because Ant-Man has led the charge into time travel in the MCU, and Kang is all about that stuff!

Plus, rumors are apparently also swirling that Ant-Man 3 will be a kick-off for the Young Avengers, what with the older Cassie Lang surely getting ready to suit up herself. And Kang was a big part of the Young Avengers.

So this is all exciting news! I haven’t seen Majors in anything yet, but he’s been getting a ton of roles recently. I’m due to start watching him in Lovecraft Country any day now, just gotta get around to starting.

Hooray for new MCU news!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/12/20

Another week of new comics, another week of new reviews! It’s good to have consistency. Another short week this time, with me only reading new issues of Marauders, X-Factor and The Green Lantern.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Marauders #12 for a big Kate Pryde moment. Also, I love how her hair is drawn.

Let it happen

Meanwhile, The Magnificent Ms. Marvel returned and I looked into it…but it’s a tie-in to the Outlawed storyline going on in Champions. I haven’t read it and didn’t plan on it, so I’m skipping the new Ms. Marvel issue. Man…I just can’t work up any interest in these comic company Big Events anymore. I must be getting old.

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season 2 #7, Marauders #12 and X-Factor #3.
