Hawkeye Needs to be in the Black Widow Movie

It’s official. Hawkeye and Black Widow have one of my favorite friendships in cinema history. We’ve seen their friendship highlighted before, mainly in The Avengers, but Avengers: Endgame took that storyline and really brought things into perspective through an emotionally impactful conclusion between the two friends. But that’s just the thing. There was an ending to their friendship.

There are major spoilers ahead but if you haven’t seen the film by now you probably weren’t that excited about it to begin with so…

‘Aladdin’: Am I Excited or Rather Uninvested?

I wish I could say I’m currently bouncing up and down with excitement to see Aladdin but unfortunately, I’m not. I’ve only seen Aladdin once as a child but I used to read this Disney Aladdin book and listen to the songs ALL the time and I LOVED it. When I heard that Disney was making a live-action version of the animated classic I was excited but skeptical.

“Rey?” Ben asked, kneeling beside her.

“Yes,” The Whisper spoke. “You feel my power. The inevitability that you have reached your end.”

Maz unholstered her blaster, pointing it at the woman.

“So it is true,” Maz said. “The legends of old. Tell me. What are you planning?”

“As someone who is the most powerful being in the universe, I will tell you everything because I have waited a millennium for this day.”

Ben ignited his lightsaber with a snarl. “You won’t tell us anything.”

He made to charge the woman but suddenly collapsed to the ground, his lightsaber clattering to the ground. He grunted in pain and Rey reached out to him to comfort but couldn’t as she was frozen in pain as well.

“You will listen to me and then you will die.”

Ben strained but still found himself frozen in place. The Whisper began to casually walk around them as she started to speak.
