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.
Marvel Studios blew the top off San Diego Comic-Con the other week by announcing all of Phase 5, with teases of Phase 6 into 2025. But Phase 6 has a bunch of holes in it. We know it’s going to start with the Fantastic Four and end with a pair of Avengers films, but what else is going to fill these open spots?
There’s a very good chance we will learn the rest of Phase 6 at Disney’s upcoming fan event in September. They won’t stay a secret for long. But between now and that fan event, I might as well spend some time mindlessly speculating about what I want to see going forward in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What else is there to fill our days but mindless speculation?
Join me after the jump for six TV shows and movies I hope to see from Marvel Studios in Phase 6! And feel free to share some of your own hopes and dreams in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
Who could have imagined that Doctor Strange would eventually be the elder statesman of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? His first film was really good, but hardly star-making material. But then he’s been a major player in Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: No Way Home. So here comes his official sequel, ready to make big bank as another Marvel hit!
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great.
I really enjoyed this film, especially by the end. I’ll admit to being a bit hazy in the first half. But the madness and the creativity of the second half really won me over and I had a great time overall. Granted, I’m a sucker for all these Marvel projects. I fully admit that and have no shame in it. It’ll be a cold day in the world when I dislike a Marvel movie or TV show. Thankfully, that day has not yet arrived!
Join me after the jump for my full thoughts on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie! And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments below!Read the rest of this entry
I am very excited for the Ms. Marvel TV show. I love the character, I have full faith in Marvel Studios, and sometimes we do get to have nice things. The first trailer arrived earlier this week and I’m finally sharing it!
I think this looks great! It looks fun, it looks joyous, it looks youthful; I really think this show is going to do right by Kamala Khan. I’m a little disappointed that they changed her powers, but to be honest, I never really dug her stretching powers in the first place. So I have faith in the showrunners making good hay out of the changes. And new actor Iman Vellani seems perfect in the role.
Did you see her thanks video after the trailer came out? Adorable!
Very hyped and excited for this show! Ms. Marvel comes to Disney+ on June 8!
The Super Bowl came and went last night and my hopes and dreams were crushed once again. I am a lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan, and they have never won a Super Bowl. They came within one minute of winning last night, and it was dashed. Such is life. Thankfully, I don’t care about football, and only really care about new movie and TV show trailers!
First up is a brand new, totally bonkers trailer for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness! Holy cow, this trailer is beyond crazy.
I don’t even want to begin to speculate what we’re going to see. There’s a ton of spoilers and leaks out there on the web, and I’m trying my best to avoid them. But just from that trailer around, this movie looks hella bonkers and I am 100% here for it! Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness comes to theaters on May 6.
Next up is a new, short spot for the Moon Knight TV show.
This still looks good. I’ve never been a big Moon Knight fan, so I’m not as hyped or pumped as other viewers. But I’m definitely going to watch to see what’s in store. The Moon Knight costume is slowly winning me over, step by step. Moon Knight arrives on TV on March 30.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is coming and I am hesitantly excited about this one.
I didn’t care for the first movie. It was more just generic live action cartoon cliche than it was a Sonic movie. But the sequel features both Tails and Knuckles. I have been a fan of Knuckles since I was a wee boy, and he appears to be incredibly awesome in this film. Like, it’s blowing my mind that this badass Knuckles the Echidna is showing up in a movie and everybody is excited. So we’ll see! Sonic the Hedgehog 2 arrives in theaters on April 8.
Then we’ve got Nope, the new horror film by Jordan Peele.
Looks freaky and scary, so it should be a good time. I guess it’s about an alien invasion? Nope stands for “Not of Planet Earth” maybe? Either way, should be a good time at the movies! Nope arrives on July 22.
