A Little Bit More Hawkeye

The Hawkeye TV show is about a month away or so, and while we don’t have a second trailer, we have a new TV spot with a bit more footage. I’ll take anything at this point, because I am very excited for the Hawkeye TV show. It could and should be a lot of fun!

This bit also reveals that we’ll get the first two episodes premiering on the same day, so that’s even more awesome! I am really hyped for this show and am hoping hoping hoping for the best. Kate Bishop should be great, Clint Barton is already great and obviously we all want to see more of Rogers: The Musical. May it all live up to our loftiest dreams!

Hawkeye arrives on Disney+ on Nov. 24.

6 Thoughts on the First Season of What If…?

The Marvel TV machine is still pumping on all cylinders as we wrap up the first season of What If…? and prepare for Hawkeye next month. I’ve always been a big fan of the What If…? comic book series and its core premise, and I thought turning that into an anthology cartoon series with a focus on the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a great idea! I love how varied these Marvel Studios TV shows have been, and What If…? was a fine choice.

TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good.

I liked What If…? just fine. It was an enjoyable show with some fun ideas. The original comic was before my time, but I read a couple issues here and there and enjoyed the concept overall. I think the TV show did a great job adapting the concept to the MCU, and it was a hoot that they were able to use so much of the actual movie cast. I don’t necessarily think that was to the show’s benefit every time…but What If…? was a fun cartoon nonetheless.

Join me after the jump for my thoughts on review on the first season of What If…? Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole season! And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments.

They’re Gonna Follow Up on that Adam Warlock Teaser from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Good news, everybody! Remember when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had a handful of mid and post-credits scenes, and one of them teased Adam Warlock? Turns out Marvel and James Gunn are definitely going to follow up on that teaser and bring Adam Warlock into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3!

And he’s gonna be played by Will Poulter. Good for him.

But don’t take my word for it. James Gunn himself confirmed the news on Twitter, after Deadline broke the story. So yeah, Will Poulter as Adam Warlock.

OK. Fine by me. I don’t have opinions on either the person or the character. But you’re damn right I trust James Gunn.

6 Thoughts on Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is here and it was awesome! I was very excited for this movie, excited to see martial arts done right on the big screen and excited for the newness of the whole endeavor. I’m also a big fan of representation in media, so I was excited to see Marvel bring an Asian main character into the MCU.

Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.

I wasn’t as completely blown away by the movie as I was hoping to be. I had really high hopes for Shang-Chi, and they were mostly met. It’s another fine, enjoyable Marvel movie. I liked everybody in the movie and I definitely look forward to everyone showing up again, both in a sequel and in some future team-ups. I look forward to them joining the circus, and I hope the success Shang-Chi has seen at the box office during the pandemic is more than enough for Marvel to greenlight sequels and more.

Join me after the jump for my thoughts and review on Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie.

How Black Widow Should Have Ended

Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings comes out this week, so how about some Black Widow fun? How about the video of How Black Widow Should Have Ended! There is indeed an annoying amount of Batman and Superman in this video, but the rest is quality alternate ending stuff!

This is a good way to start a hopefully Marvel-filled week of fun!
