There’s Gonna Be a Wonder Man Show!

The rumors have been swirling for a while that a Wonder Man TV show as in the works from Marvel Studios. I’m all for it. I’m all for any show or movie or special presentation that Marvel wants to make next. I’m a sucker like that. So they want to make Wonder Man? Heck yeah!

Especially since they have cast Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Wonder Man!

He’s a great actor. He was perfectly cast as Black Manta in the Aquaman movie. He was great as Dr. Manhattan in the Watchmen TV show. I’m sure I’ve seen him in other roles. Abdul-Mateen should be great! It’s going to be directed and produced by Destin Daniel Cretton, the guy behind Shang-Chi, with help from Andrew Guest, who worked on Hawkeye. Sounds like a winning team. So bring on the Wonder Man TV show on Disney+ and lets all skewer Hollywood together!

Maybe he’ll need an entertainment lawyer and Jennifer Walters can cameo.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is Gonna Be Lit

We are living in an age of uncompromising Marvel Studios entertainment, people. We’re only a few short weeks out of the end of She-Hulk: Attorney for Hire, which was great. We’re only a few short weeks away from the premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which early reactions hail as great. We had a great Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania trailer only a few days ago. And now we’ve got our first look at The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which comes out in a month!

Looks great to me! James Gunn and the whole cast are back to make a fun Christmas romp. I’m pretty sure this was Gunn’s idea, so it’s not like Marvel forced this upon him. So it should be a hoot and a half. And it’s going to set up Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for next year, so that’s even better!

Meanwhile, Gunn has taken the job at the newly minted DC Universe of movies. Good for him! I loved The Suicide Squad and loved Peacemaker, so I’ve no doubt he’s going to deliver some great DC products going forward! Here’s hoping that’s true.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special comes to Disney+ on Nov. 25.

6 Thoughts on She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

I have a new favorite! She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been getting a lot of flack for reasons that make no sense to me. This show was everything it said it would be and more, and everything I wanted it to be. Funny, charming, full of personality and perfectly built around a very fun main character. I want to see Tatiana Maslany and Jennifer Walters everywhere now.

TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic

Once upon a time, I didn’t think She-Hulk would work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I didn’t think the MCU Hulk could translate into a She-Hulk movie. Thankfully, the world changed and the Disney+ TV shows changed everything. The creative team behind She-Hulk: Attorney at Law used the TV format to perfection to bring this character and her unique perspective to life. I want production to start immediately on season 2!

Join me after the jump for my full thoughts and review of the first season of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Expect FULL SPOILERS. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments!

6 Thoughts on Werewolf By Night

Who would have thought we’d ever have a quality Werewolf By Night project from the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Definitely not me! I am an avowed Marvel Zombie through and through, but I have never cared about Werewolf By Night. I don’t know too much about the property, but isn’t the dude just a werewolf riding on the craze from the 1970s? Does he not matter at all? Shows what I know!

Special Presentation Rating: 9/10 – Great

Werewolf By Night was such a great little project from Marvel Studios. I had no idea what to expect, but that first trailer a month ago really set the tone, and then the show itself captured that tone perfectly. Like everyone else on the internet, I want Marvel to do more. I want more projects from this circle of characters, and I want more projects like this, with a real artistic vision. It’s a fun Halloween special and a fun addition to the MCU.

More Doom Patrol is Coming

Doom Patrol is a quality TV show and we’re going to get a fourth season! I gave up on Titans. I gave up on all those CW DC shows. But Doom Patrol remains some real quality content, and New York Comic Con has given us a fun new trailer!

Can’t really tell all that’s happening in this madness of a trailer. But it’s the Doom Patrol. They’ve really gone all out season after season. I’m sure we can count on real good stuff happening to our eyeballs.

Also, the Shipoopi song will always hold a special place in my heart because I sang it when my high school did the Music Man! Good times!

Season 4 of the Doom Patrol comes to HBO Max on Dec. 8.
