6 Thoughts on the (First?) Season of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

Six weeks of action and excitement have come and gone and I declare that the first season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was awesome! I loved the whole darn thing, from beginning to end. A lot of chatter online has this show as flawed, but I disagree entirely. I had fun the whole way through and loved pretty much every minute of it.

TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was everything I wanted and more. Going into the series, I expected an action show on par with the action-heavy Marvel movies, and we got that. I expected some fun banter/butting heads between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. We got that. Then the show took things even further with some truly memorable side characters and a deeper exploration of race than I would have ever predicted. I thought that part was great as well!

What can I say? I love me some Marvel Cinematic Universe content!

Join me after the jump for my thoughts on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the show!

The First Shang-Chi Trailer Comes Outta Nowhere!

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!

How About Some Great Marvel Trailers?

A bunch of trailers have been arriving on the internet in the past week and I’m severely behind in sharing them! But I’m going to try to get to all of them at some point or another. Let’s start with the absolute best with a pair of Marvel trailers!

We’ve got a new trailer for the Black Widow movie, which comes to both theaters and Disney+ on July 9!

The movie still looks great! Looks to be another exciting and fun Marvel movie. And considering how well Godzilla vs. Kong is doing in theaters, there’s a lot of hope for the Marvel Cinematic Universe when it returns in three months. That’s plenty of time for vaccines to settle in and for this whole pandemic thing to blow over. High hopes indeed!

Next up is a trailer for the Loki TV show, which arrives on Disney+ on June 11!

I’m not as taken with Loki as the rest of the world, but this still looks good and fun! Even Owen Wilson looks fun! So here’s hoping for another successful Marvel TV show. WandaVision was adored. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is doing really well, I think. There’s a good chance Loki will be even better!

So yeah, Marvel still has products coming out and they should all be pretty fun! Hooray for having more things to watch and enjoy!

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Tonight! WandaVision Now!

The first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now available on Disney+! I’ve heard good things. The critic reviews are very positive. I can’t wait to watch later tonight after work! Until then, how about the Honest Trailer for WandaVision? I told you these nifty online parodies were coming!

Good stuff! I also plan to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League this weekend! I may or may not do a List of Six on my thoughts on the movie. As I recall, I enjoyed the Joss Whedon Justice League when I saw it in theaters…though I have no interest in it now.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Comes Out With a New Trailer Just in Time

All trailers for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have been fun. And with only a few days left until the first episode airs, we’ve got one last trailer to enjoy. If you don’t want to watch because you don’t want anything spoiled, I totally understand. I don’t watch pre-release clips for the same reason. But this trailer is the same as all the others. No major spoilers.

Looks great! This looks to be a really fun buddy action comedy, bringing big movie spectacle to the small screen. The leads are fun, the storylines sound interesting and I’m confident Marvel will have another hit! Just gotta wait until Friday to watch!
