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.
WandaVision is over and the world may never be the same! After a year and a half, we finally have new Marvel content in our lives and I love how excited the world became for this TV show! None of us knew what to expect with Marvel Studios transitioning to television, but I think most of us are pleased as punch with the result.
TV Show Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
It should come as no surprise that I loved WandaVision. I make no bones about the fact that I am a dedicated Marvel fanboy. I love their stuff, and I loved this new TV show. The performances were excellent. The use of characters was fun. And the main story, about grief and witchcraft, was a blast. This thing succeeded at everything it tried to do. I’ll admit it wasn’t perfect, but it was still very enjoyable and entertaining viewing. Obviously, I have thoughts.

The pandemic really did a number on all those awesome Marvel TV shows we were expecting. Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been delayed until next year. But it seems we’ll still be getting WandaVision before the end of 2020. In fact, here’s the first full trailer for this trippy show!
Looks amazing! Weird, trippy and all manner of nutso, this trailer looks totally perfect for the show they’ve promised. I can’t wait!
Movie spoilers are almost unavoidable in this day and age, especially with these big budget superhero movies. Marvel and DC can cast whoever they want, and impose whatever gag orders they want, but somehow, eventually, we’re going to find out ahead of time that Jason Momoa is playing Aquaman or that Cosmo is going to be in your Guardians of the Galaxy movie (though I am a little annoyed that we don’t have confirmation on Robin/Nightwing yet in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice). This is the case with the Vision in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Marvel and the actor were doing their best to keep him under wraps, but he’s out there – in fact, he’s even appearing in promotional material.
I’m going to save the actual image for after the jump, for those of you who still want to resist spoilers.
The Vision is a classic Avenger from the comic. He’s an android with a rather gaudy costume who eventually learns things like loyalty and love. Classic android stuff. Personally, I’ve never been a fan, but you better believe I’m super excited to see him in Age of Ultron.
Join me after the jump for the first real glimpse of the Vision!
The superhero movie rumor mill is grinding away today at full force, with news out of England that Paul Bettany will be playing the Vision in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Bettany, if you recall, has been the voice of Tony Stark’s computer/butler J.A.R.V.I.S. in all of the Iron Man movies, as well as the first Avengers. And the Vision is an android from the comics. So it would kind of make sense for the artificial intelligence to just upgrade into a robot body.
Right now, this casting is all rumor, I think. It’s all over the Internet today, but Marvel hasn’t said anything concrete. It was reported in The Daily Mail, who said they saw Bettany undergoing some make up work on the set. Then it got confirmed by Variety. I don’t usually like to post these sorts of rumors, but it’s a slow news day, and I actually really like this idea.
