How Do Civilians Know About Marvel Movie Events?

I’ve seen this concern pop up a lot during WandaVision discussions and I think I have a pretty solid explanation. How did Jimmy Woo and Monica Rambeau know about Wanda and Captain Marvel fighting Thanos from Avengers: Endgame? How does Dr. Darcy Lewis know so much about the Vision’s history, from him originating as Jarvis to his two deaths at the end of Avengers: Infinity War?

It’s simple: Captain America told them.

Would he lie to you?

I don’t mean directly. Captain America didn’t sit down Jimmy, Monica and Darcy to explain the finer details.

I’m saying that the Avengers, as an organization, with Captain America in a major leadership position, likely believed in full transparency when it came to both team members and major events. Couple that with real world of examples of both major news media operations and just people on the internet who go really in depth into this stuff. There’s going to be a lot of coverage of major superhero events, and the superheroes themselves are not operating in secret. The Avengers are specifically separate from S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America was not a big fan of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s secrecy to begin with.

So I think it’s perfectly reasonable that ordinary people are going to know both minor and major details about superhero events.

Join me after the jump for some scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that help prove my point! I’m not just pulling my argument out of thing air here!

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).

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!

A Quick New WandaVision Trailer

I am very excited about WandaVision coming to Disney+ on Jan. 15! That’s less than three weeks away! The Marvel Studios TV shows are finally right around the corner! I wonder how shocked the Marvel and Disney people are that WandaVision is going to be the first one out of the gate. At least it looks great!

Then we’ll have to wait until March for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but I’m sure that will also be worth the wait. These shows could be the future of television! I know I’m excited for each and every one of them!
