WandaVision is a Terrible Way to Introduce Mutants to the MCU

I have very much been enjoying WandaVision on Disney+ week in and week out. It’s a fun, exciting, tense, mysterious show, and I’ve been having a blast! That being said, I think WandaVision is a terrible way to introduce mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Not a mutant in the MCU

Along with watching every episode of WandaVision, I’ve also discovered the entire cottage industry on YouTube of reaction videos. I hope people are making good money on this stuff! And I’m reading reviews and recaps and message board comments. There’s so much talk out there about WandaVision, and I have plenty of my own theories, but there’s one fan theory I want to squelch if I can: there is no way WandaVision will or should be the introduction of mutants into the MCU proper.

No spoilers in this opening section! So join me after the jump for more. And expect FULL SPOILERS for WandaVision up until this point (episode 6).

Let’s Take Another Look at Raya and the Last Dragon!

The next big Disney film to come to premium streaming on Disney+ is Raya and the Last Dragon. Will it be good? I don’t know. I still think it looks a little too ambitious in these trailers. But who am I to judge? What the heck do I even know? There’s a new trailer!

Hopefully it will be great. I definitely plan to pay for the premium movie premiere, so I hope it will be worth my money. I love dragons! I love good fights in movies! So I’m going to hope for the best!

Raya and the Last Dragon comes to Disney+ (and theaters, I guess) on March 5!

The Big Game Brings a Big Trailer!

The Super Bowl was yesterday and, as is my nature, I didn’t watch it. But I definitely watched the new trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, released alongside the Big Game! Still looks great!

The show comes to Disney+ on March 19, with is a little more than a month away. And…there’s not much more to say about the show at this point. The trailer looks amazing. The special and digital effects are movie-quality. This looks to be as good as a Marvel movie, and that’s insane!

I wish I was a smarter, more academic person so I could analyze how this will effect the TV landscape going forward. TV shows with the budgets and digital effects quality of movies? Madness! And I’m very excited. I hope you are too!

WandaVision Looks to Only Get Better!

Because WandaVision is a certified hit, the fine folks at Marvel have come out with a new mid-season trailer! That’s a thing now! Since Disney+ has reintroduced the world to watching television at one episode per week, something has to keep our attention spans from crashing.

So check out this nifty new trailer! It’s full of spoilers for the show so far, so don’t watch the trailer if you haven’t been watching WandaVision.

I have been watching WandaVision, so the trailer was safe for me to view!

I’m loving the show so far! I’m old enough to have grown up watching TV at only one episode per week, so that isn’t bothering me at all. And I’m loving the slow burn! For some reason, people out there on the internet are complaining about the pacing of the show? Are you crazy?! The sitcom stuff was funny and clever, and it served as the perfect set-up for the even bigger stuff we’re going to see now.

Stories need set-up. That’s just basic stuff.

New episodes of WandaVision on Fridays!

Raya and the Last Dragon Is Coming

Raya and the Last Dragon is the next big animated Disney movie and they put out a new trailer this week. And it’s…good? I want to say good. But something just feels…off to me. I think it’s the voice. Kelly Marie Tran voices Raya, but I think she was a second choice at some point. And I Just don’t think her voice syncs up perfectly… See for yourself.

The story also seems too ambitious. It seems a little too complicated.

But hey, maybe I have no idea what I’m talking about. There exists the very real chance that I am entirely wrong with my gut reaction to this new trailer. I hope that is the case. I hope this is another banger.

Raya and the Last Dragon comes to theaters on March 5, along with premium access on Disney+.
