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.

WandaVision is over and everything is worse now. Fortunately, it’s about to get better, because now all our favorite YouTube video-makers can go hog wild on the show! And first up is Pitch Meeting by that one funny dude at Screen Rant!
He hits a lot of the most obvious bits, but it’s still funny! And we’ve got plenty more videos in the weeks ahead to enjoy. How WandaVision should have ended, perhaps? Suffice to say, WandaVision was good stuff!
I’ll have my review/thoughts on the show on Wednesday!
I’ve seen this concern pop up a lot during WandaVision discussions and I think I have a pretty solid explanation. How did Jimmy Woo and Monica Rambeau know about Wanda and Captain Marvel fighting Thanos from Avengers: Endgame? How does Dr. Darcy Lewis know so much about the Vision’s history, from him originating as Jarvis to his two deaths at the end of Avengers: Infinity War?
It’s simple: Captain America told them.
I don’t mean directly. Captain America didn’t sit down Jimmy, Monica and Darcy to explain the finer details.
I’m saying that the Avengers, as an organization, with Captain America in a major leadership position, likely believed in full transparency when it came to both team members and major events. Couple that with real world of examples of both major news media operations and just people on the internet who go really in depth into this stuff. There’s going to be a lot of coverage of major superhero events, and the superheroes themselves are not operating in secret. The Avengers are specifically separate from S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America was not a big fan of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s secrecy to begin with.
So I think it’s perfectly reasonable that ordinary people are going to know both minor and major details about superhero events.
Join me after the jump for some scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that help prove my point! I’m not just pulling my argument out of thing air here!Read the rest of this entry
I have very much been enjoying WandaVision on Disney+ week in and week out. It’s a fun, exciting, tense, mysterious show, and I’ve been having a blast! That being said, I think WandaVision is a terrible way to introduce mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Along with watching every episode of WandaVision, I’ve also discovered the entire cottage industry on YouTube of reaction videos. I hope people are making good money on this stuff! And I’m reading reviews and recaps and message board comments. There’s so much talk out there about WandaVision, and I have plenty of my own theories, but there’s one fan theory I want to squelch if I can: there is no way WandaVision will or should be the introduction of mutants into the MCU proper.
No spoilers in this opening section! So join me after the jump for more. And expect FULL SPOILERS for WandaVision up until this point (episode 6).Read the rest of this entry
