This has been known for a while now, but wasn’t as confirmed as I usually like when I write about superhero movie casting. But now Marvel Studios has confirmed that Oscar Isaac will be Moon Knight in the upcoming TV show!
And great! I like Isaac. I like Moon Knight. And the character has gone through a lot of modern revisions that make him especially cool. So I have high hopes for this series. And that’s about it. I think the show is in pre-production right now. It’s a year or two out from our TV screens. But I have total faith in this casting and this show.
I don’t think anybody was expecting this today, of all days! But Marvel has released the first trailer, first official look, at Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings! And it looks great!
I love everything I see in this trailer! The action looks superb, really leaning heavily into classic Asian martial arts films. The guy who plays the Mandarin is supposedly a big name in Hong Kong cinema, so that’s cool. And I like Awkwafina a whole bunch, so yay there! I don’t know anything about the main actor, Simon Liu, but the internet is telling me that today is his birthday and Marvel surprised him with this trailer! That’s neat.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings looks great! It comes out on Sept. 3, only a few days before my birthday!
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!
The new Avengers: Infinity War trailer is here and it’s pretty awesome!
Honestly, I’m starting to feel like this Thanos threat is going to be a pretty daunting challenge for the filmmakers. How do they turn something so nebulous and vast as Thanos and intergalactic armies of faceless aliens into an adversary that doesn’t just feel like a big, CGI mess? Granted, I have 110% faith in Marvel Studios and the Russo brothers to pull this off with aplomb, but I am having some slight fears.
On the other hand, the witty banter in this trailer is on freakin’ point! Tony and Star-Lord is great! Peter and Dr. Strange at the end is great! If nothing else, this movie is going to give us some fun new banter partners!
Movie comes out on April 27. The wait hopefully won’t be too terrible.
