Jameela Jamil to Kick She-Hulk Butt!

Some fun casting news arrived yesterday! According to Variety, Jameela Jamil has been cast as the villain Titania for the upcoming She-Hulk TV show. Jamil was awesome on The Good Place and I’m very excited about the She-Hulk show, so this is great news all around!

We already know that Tatiana Maslany will play She-Hulk, with guest appearances from Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk and Tim Roth as the Abomination. So it’s cool that She-Hulk will get her own arch enemy to knock around. Word has it that the TV show Titania will be an influencer, which is fine for a character in 2021/2022. Titania’s origins in the comics aren’t going to happen in the MCU anytime soon, so I’m all for them changing what needs to be changed.

Titania has never been a very deep character. But she’s strong enough to fight She-Hulk, so she’s a fine addition to the show. And Jameela Jamil is pretty awesome, so this is some fine casting!

Tatiana Maslany to Play She-Hulk!

Crazy big Marvel casting news arrived yesterday in that Tatiana Maslany will play Jennifer Walters and She-Hulk in the upcoming Disney+ show! That’s awesome! Everybody agreed that Maslany was great in Orphan Black, so I’m excited for her as She-Hulk!

This will definitely require a ton of courtroom scenes

The She-Hulk show is set to start filming early next year, so that’s cool. I’m confident they will go with a full CGI/mo-cap look for actual She-Hulk, just like with Professor Hulk in Endgame. These are TV shows gifted with MCU budget, so they’ll make it happen and they’ll make it look great! Disney has every reason in the world to go full speed ahead on making these Marvel shows a must-see for Disney+.

For example, here’s hoping we get that Mark Ruffalo/Hulk cameo! They’ve got to do it, right? There’s no way he skips out on making a quick appearance or two.

Now we go back to waiting patiently for them to cast Kamala Khan!

Those Geniuses! They’ve Done It! My Ms. Marvel Dreams Are Alive!

Sweet Joseph McGillicutty! If you thought Marvel was worried about losing Spider-Man, they are apparently more than ready to just continue full steam ahead with everything else they’ve got at the ready! At the D23 convention tonight, they have announced new TV shows for Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk!

They’re coming to the Disney+ streaming service in the years ahead, so they’ll be made by Marvel Studios and not Marvel TV.

 

MsMarvel TV 02

Moon Knight TV 02

She Hulk TV 02

We don’t have any details yet on what these shows will contain. Maybe we’ll learn more as the weekend continues, and I’ll gladly share anything that I learn. But man, this is damn exciting.

I think a Marvel Studios-produced TV show is the perfect way to introduce Kamala Khan, especially if it means she can jump to the movies eventually (Young Avengers!).

And while I’ve been previously opposed to bringing She-Hulk into the MCU, I think she’d work perfectly with the new Professor Hulk we’ve got!

What a time to be alive! Here’s hoping I make it to 40 so I can see all of these! Just hook it to my veins!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/16/17

So, uh, comics, hey? Some came out this week! I read them, enjoyed them and have written up a couple reviews! Everybody likes those, right? Sorry, I’m a little distracted this weekend! But I still love comics.

Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Mister Miracle. Whatever writer Tom King is building here, I think it’s going to be good!

Miracle Shower 01

Domestic bliss

The second issue of DC’s Metal event came out this week, and it was fun. They do a great job tying a lot of recent Batman stories together, reaching all the way back to Final Crisis and The Return of Bruce Wayne. But in the end, I think it’s all a little silly. Like, they go to all this trouble and establish a Batman story that supposedly stretches to every conceivable corner of the DC Universe…and it’s all about just bringing a bunch of evil, multidimensional Batman to Earth to fight everybody.

Eh, not impressed. So far.

Comic Reviews: Hulk #10, Mister Miracle #2, Ms. Marvel #22, Runaways #1 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #24.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/12/17

Next week is Flame Con! I’ll tell you all about it when I get home. It’s going to be the big convention debut of Gamer Girl & Vixen, and we are very excited! But we’ve got to wait, and until then, we can read the likes of Detective Comics, Harley Quinn, Squirrel Girl and even Ms. Marvel!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of writer Tom King’s new Mister Miracle series. This is the issue that everybody is talking about this week, and for damn good reason!

Darkseid Is 01

Can’t argue with that

I’m ready for Secret Empire to be over. These events are way too long. The latest issue is fine. It’s all still fine. But there’s no energy anymore. It doesn’t feel like the story is just going through the motions, per se. It’s more like…clearly this whole thing was orchestrated from on high, like all stories. But rather than really tell the story and the nitty gritty, we’re kind of just strolling through the big moments. We’re not reading this comic so much as it’s being told to us. I hope that explains it.

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #962, Harley Quinn #25, Hulk #9, Mister Miracle #1, Ms. Marvel #21, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #23.
