Kamala Khan has arrived on our television screens and the Ms. Marvel show was everything I could have wanted and more! I’ve been a champion of the character since she was first announced in comics, and I couldn’t be happier at how well this character was actually received and how popular she’s become. And I’m so glad her TV show was amazing.
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
This might be my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe TV show. Pretty much every aspect of this show was perfect — and a perfect translation from the comics. The showrunners captured that wonderful Kamala Khan dynamic directly from the page, and infused the series with joy, energy and wonderful character development. They got the family right. They got the religion right. They may have crammed a bit too much into just six episodes, but that’s not a dealbreaker.
Join me after the jump for my thoughts and full review of the Ms. Marvel TV show! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the show. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments!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!
Oh what a week, what a week. Where does one even begin? How about by just diving into some comic reviews, like Batman and a new Black Manta series? Sounds good to me!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #11 because this comic can do no wrong. Holy cow is this good drama and good storytelling!
Meanwhile, I did finally get around to watch Centaurworld on Netflix. That show was a hoot and a half! Not much else going on with me right now. I’m playing some old video games and trying to find some new, interesting shows to watch. Just livin’ that 2021 lifestyle…
Comic Reviews: Batman #112, Black Manta #1, Champions #9 and Mighty Morphin #11.Read the rest of this entry
It being a random Monday, Marvel has released a sizzle reel trailer to show off their awesomeness and reveal some upcoming dates for new movies. Obviously this is a ploy to get us all to go back to movie theaters…and it works like a charm!
This sizzle reel also features the first footage from The Eternals, which comes out this November. We’ve also got the first logos for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels, the sequels to Black Panther and Captain Marvel respectively.
So yeah, big freakin’ deal, I’d say! Trailer looks great! Marvel has never skimped on those. I’m excited for all the upcoming movies, and I’m already back in the theaters, so you best believe I’ll be seeing all of these upcoming movies on the big screen.
It’s gonna be a busy couple of months. We’ve got Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Eternals and Spider-Man: Far From Home all coming out in the back half of this year. Of 2021!
And next year, we’ve got Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels!
Then, so far, we’ve got Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for 2023.
Should be a good couple of years!
The big Disney investor summit took place tonight and they dropped so much info about upcoming Disney projects that I am not equipped to handle it all!

Not for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
It arrives on March 19.

That thing has barely begun filming, so I’m so excited to see even a little footage! We also heard that Kamala Khan is already planned to jump into the Captain Marvel 2 movie when that comes around!
Then here’s a big look at the What If…? series, coming in the summer.
And in just general news, we had the Fantastic Four movie confirmed for sure, complete with initial logo. And Jon Watts, the director of the MCU Spider-Man movies, will direct the Fantastic Four movie.

Don Cheadle will return as War Machine in an Armor Wars show, wherein bad guys get their hands on Iron Man technology. Dominique Thorne has been cast as Riri Williams in an Ironheart TV show. Tatiana Maslany has been confirmed as Jennifer Walters in a She-Hulk show, which will also see the return of Tim Roth as Abomination!
