Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/11/21

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!

Ah, so you’ve been reading Mighty Morphin

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.

Get Hyped for Them There Marvel Movies!

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!

All the New Marvel Trailers: Loki, Falcon & Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Ms. Marvel!

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! But what I can do is share a bunch of awesome trailers that were released online Thursday night! And they are some great trailers! Disney and Marvel are sparing no expense!

Not for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

It arrives on March 19.

Not for WandaVision.

That’s coming on Jan. 15.

We get our first look at the Loki show.

That’s coming in the fall of 2021.

We even got our first ever footage of the Ms. Marvel show! Holy cow!

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.

Further on in TV news, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn (Talos the Skrull) will star in a Secret Invasion TV show. 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! James Gunn is doing a Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special for 2022.

So yeah, a ton of big news! How exciting! Now let’s go watch those trailers again…

6 Things I Want to See in the Ms. Marvel TV Show

After a long wait and what was no doubt a lengthy audition process, Marvel Studios has cast Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan for the upcoming Ms. Marvel TV show on Disney+! This is exciting news because I am a huge Ms. Marvel fan and am very much looking forward to this show.

Theoretically arriving someday…

As has been pointed out, this is Vellani’s first major Hollywood role, so we don’t really know how she’s going to pan out as an actor — but I have 110% faith in the Marvel casting process. They haven’t failed us yet. No other casting decisions have been released online yet, but I’ve seen that the show is looking to bring in most of Kamala’s supporting cast from the comics. So there are no individual characters I hope they include because I’m confident they will include all the important ones. So this list is just some fun speculation of other things I’d like to see, like storyline ideas, villains or little details here or there.

Join me after the jump for ideas I’d like to see in the upcoming Ms. Marvel TV show! And feel free to share your own hopes, dreams and ideas in the comments!

We Have a Kamala Khan!

At long last, it has been revealed that newcomer Iman Vellani has been cast as Kamala Khan for the Ms. Marvel TV show! She’s so new that this is her first acting role!

It’s finally happening!

According to Deadline, Vellani’s only real credit in the world is being on a diversity committee at the 2019 Toronto Film Festival…so that’s something! And it obviously means none of us are going to be familiar with her acting work. But if Marvel Studios is cool with their choice, I definitely support their decision. They are casting wizards!

Marvel Studios hasn’t said anything yet, but they never do. Good for Miss Vellani!
