Last night I kind of went on a Marvel binge. It was totally random, I wasn’t expecting it, but it was so much fun.
I began the evening (after watching Tarzan for basically only the third time in my life and crying my eyes out) by watching Doctor Strange, a film that has become my go-to Marvel flick. Watching it was fun, especially knowing that we’re finally getting the sequel next year and that the said sequel will include Wanda Maximoff. What a fascinating thought.
It’s also very exciting knowing that we will see Mordo again but this time around he will be a villain. I really feel a bit of a Steve/Bucky vibe between Strange and Mordo. They started as friends, will become enemies, but I can see them becoming allies again in the future against a greater evil.
And don’t forget, we’re getting America Chavez’s MCU debut in that movie too.
Then I watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which was surprisingly fun. I’m not a fan of this movie but it does have a level of likability that a lot of other superhero films don’t have.
And then I watched Captain Marvel which, yeah, can be boring but ultimately it’s got a great ending. Brie Larson really embodies the snarky attitude of Carol Danvers perfectly while also managing to be strong and powerful when she needs to be.
To say I’m excited for The Marvels is an understatement. Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau, and Ms. Marvel all in the same movie! That’s the type of girl power moment I would’ve loved to see as a kid and I just cannot wait to see the story unfold.
So, that was my unexpected Marvel Saturday extravaganza. What did you end up watching last night? Feel free to share your Saturday night watch party in the comments below.
