Brace yourselves, a new She-Hulk series is coming, and you best believe it’s going to be a humdinger! There have been plenty of She-Hulk comics over the years, and I’ve enjoyed most of them just fine. But I am particularly excited about this new one because writer Rainbow Rowell is going to be the wordsmith! Rowell blew me away with her work on The Runaways comic over the past several years, easily one of my favorite recent comics from Marvel. I was very sad when that comic came to an end.
Now I’m very happy that Rowell is sticking with Marvel and is tackling a character like She-Hulk! With art by Rogê Antônio.
I am very excited to get my hands on a new Rainbow Rowell comic and I think she’ll have a lot of fun with She-Hulk. She’s apparently taking the character back to basics, wherein Jennifer Walters juggles being a superhero and a lawyer. That sounds fine by me. I haven’t been reading Jason Aaron’s Avengers comic, wherein She-Hulk is more of a brute-type Hulk, so I have no problem with shifting the character.
“She-Hulk is the best of the best,” Rowell said. “She’s smart, she’s funny — and she’s really and truly heroic (all that and she has the best hair in comics). Jen has always been at the top of my Marvel wishlist, and I’m thrilled to be writing her next chapter.”
The new series is coming in January, and you best believing I’ll be buying!
The Hawkeye TV show is about a month away or so, and while we don’t have a second trailer, we have a new TV spot with a bit more footage. I’ll take anything at this point, because I am very excited for the Hawkeye TV show. It could and should be a lot of fun!
This bit also reveals that we’ll get the first two episodes premiering on the same day, so that’s even more awesome! I am really hyped for this show and am hoping hoping hoping for the best. Kate Bishop should be great, Clint Barton is already great and obviously we all want to see more of Rogers: The Musical. May it all live up to our loftiest dreams!
Hawkeye arrives on Disney+ on Nov. 24.
The Marvel TV machine is still pumping on all cylinders as we wrap up the first season of What If…? and prepare for Hawkeye next month. I’ve always been a big fan of the What If…? comic book series and its core premise, and I thought turning that into an anthology cartoon series with a focus on the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a great idea! I love how varied these Marvel Studios TV shows have been, and What If…? was a fine choice.
TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I liked What If…? just fine. It was an enjoyable show with some fun ideas. The original comic was before my time, but I read a couple issues here and there and enjoyed the concept overall. I think the TV show did a great job adapting the concept to the MCU, and it was a hoot that they were able to use so much of the actual movie cast. I don’t necessarily think that was to the show’s benefit every time…but What If…? was a fun cartoon nonetheless.
Join me after the jump for my thoughts on review on the first season of What If…? Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole season! And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments.Read the rest of this entry
Good news, everybody! Remember when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had a handful of mid and post-credits scenes, and one of them teased Adam Warlock? Turns out Marvel and James Gunn are definitely going to follow up on that teaser and bring Adam Warlock into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3!
And he’s gonna be played by Will Poulter. Good for him.
But don’t take my word for it. James Gunn himself confirmed the news on Twitter, after Deadline broke the story. So yeah, Will Poulter as Adam Warlock.
OK. Fine by me. I don’t have opinions on either the person or the character. But you’re damn right I trust James Gunn.
