The first season of Loki is over and nothing will ever be the same. Theoretically. I’m excited to see where we go from here and am very pleased with the show. The first three of Marvel Studios’ shows are over and I am happy to say they are all an unqualified success! Oh to live in a world where we get to have and enjoy these shows.
TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I’m not going to sugar coat things: if I were to rank the first three Marvel Studios shows, as most people online are doing, I would rank Loki last. I’ve never been as big a fan of the character as everybody else seems to be. I never cared for Loki in the comics, and I’m not smitten with him in the MCU. Simple as that. But this was still a solid show, there’s a lot of promise to be had in that big cliffhanger ending and I look forward to more Tom Hiddleston-led adventures in mischief.

The Loki TV show is almost over, so Marvel has the next one lined up and ready to go! It’s What If…?, the cartoon! And a new, fuller trailer arrived to the world yesterday looking all manner of interesting.
This one looks really neat! I really enjoyed the concept of What If…? when I was younger. It’s a great idea for a comic. And it looks to be a fun idea for a cartoon to run alongside the MCU. This is a fun look at what some of the episodes will be. Better websites than mine have picked apart every single frame of this trailer, because that’s what they do, so if you’re interested in that sort of thing you can find it.
Me? I’m just jazzed at all the fun sights! We’ll find out what the show itself is like when What If…? arrives on Disney+ on Aug. 11.
Some fun casting news arrived yesterday! According to Variety, Jameela Jamil has been cast as the villain Titania for the upcoming She-Hulk TV show. Jamil was awesome on The Good Place and I’m very excited about the She-Hulk show, so this is great news all around!
We already know that Tatiana Maslany will play She-Hulk, with guest appearances from Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk and Tim Roth as the Abomination. So it’s cool that She-Hulk will get her own arch enemy to knock around. Word has it that the TV show Titania will be an influencer, which is fine for a character in 2021/2022. Titania’s origins in the comics aren’t going to happen in the MCU anytime soon, so I’m all for them changing what needs to be changed.
Titania has never been a very deep character. But she’s strong enough to fight She-Hulk, so she’s a fine addition to the show. And Jameela Jamil is pretty awesome, so this is some fine casting!
The Loki TV show debuted today on Disney+ and I’m very excited to watch. I’ve loved all of the Marvel Studios TV shows to date, and everyone is very pumped about Loki being the best yet. By all means, let’s hope for the best and enjoy the show!
Loki being Loki, and the nature of this show being weird as possible, means we might get some really weird Lokis along the way. How weird? I’m ready to get really weird. Because Loki is rarely just Loki in his comic book history. There are some really weird Lokis out there to enjoy. And I hope the new TV show finds a way to include a bunch of them, just to be as weird as possible. Will any of these happen? Maybe some. Should all of them happen? Heck yeah!
Join me after the jump for some weird and alternate versions of Loki that I hope pop up on his show!Read the rest of this entry
I just wanted to pass this trailer along as a friendly reminder that everybody should watch and enjoy The Owl House on Disney+. This is a cartoon I discovered late last year after deciding on a whim to give it a try. And it’s great! It’s funny, it’s creative, it’s badass when it wants to be; a solid, enjoyable cartoon adventure show.
The first season is fully available to watch, and the second season will kick off this Saturday, June 12. If you’re looking for a new cartoon to fill the void now that the likes of Adventure Time and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power are over, The Owl House is a solid choice!
Trust me, I know these things.
