The news came out last week that Henry Cavill will not return as Superman on the big screen after all. Despite being told by the studio he would. Despite being shoehorned into the post-credits scene in Black Adam. Cavill’s time as the Man of Steel is at an end. To that I say, good. Cavill was fine as Superman, but I am 110% in favor of putting an end to the DCEU and letting James Gunn take over completely.
With the Superman gig gone, and after dropping out of The Witcher, Henry Cavill is a free agent. He’s a pretty popular actor, and I’m sure he could be put to good use within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are plenty of superheroes who have yet to make their MCU debut, and there are plenty of those that Cavill could play. I’m not talking about Hyperion or Sentry, the obvious Superman knock-offs. Why are people pigeon-holing Cavill into those roles? The Marvel Universe is vast and exciting, and Cavill could be just about anyone.

Making Black Panther: Wakanda Forever couldn’t have been easy. Ryan Coogler and Chadwick Boseman were well into plotting and scripting this sequel when Boseman passed, after keeping his illness a secret from even his close collaborators. But I’m glad that Coogler, Marvel and the whole cast decided to push through and make this movie the way they did. Wakanda Forever is a big, rich and emotional movie, full of great performances and a really outstanding superhero story.
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great
I very much enjoyed Wakanda Forever. I didn’t mind the long runtime. I loved the introduction of Namor, even though I’ve never been a fan of the character. I loved the story of the new Black Panther, even though I didn’t think I would. And I think everyone involved truly brought their A games to honor Boseman. It made for an exciting watch. I was already a big fan of the first Black Panther movie, and I think I liked this sequel even more. The same confidence was at play in the filmmaking, and I just think Namor and the Talokans were a wonderful antagonist. Good time all around!

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.
I have a new favorite! She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been getting a lot of flack for reasons that make no sense to me. This show was everything it said it would be and more, and everything I wanted it to be. Funny, charming, full of personality and perfectly built around a very fun main character. I want to see Tatiana Maslany and Jennifer Walters everywhere now.
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
Once upon a time, I didn’t think She-Hulk would work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I didn’t think the MCU Hulk could translate into a She-Hulk movie. Thankfully, the world changed and the Disney+ TV shows changed everything. The creative team behind She-Hulk: Attorney at Law used the TV format to perfection to bring this character and her unique perspective to life. I want production to start immediately on season 2!

Who would have thought we’d ever have a quality Werewolf By Night project from the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Definitely not me! I am an avowed Marvel Zombie through and through, but I have never cared about Werewolf By Night. I don’t know too much about the property, but isn’t the dude just a werewolf riding on the craze from the 1970s? Does he not matter at all? Shows what I know!
Special Presentation Rating: 9/10 – Great
Werewolf By Night was such a great little project from Marvel Studios. I had no idea what to expect, but that first trailer a month ago really set the tone, and then the show itself captured that tone perfectly. Like everyone else on the internet, I want Marvel to do more. I want more projects from this circle of characters, and I want more projects like this, with a real artistic vision. It’s a fun Halloween special and a fun addition to the MCU.
