‘The Bad Batch’ Was Kind of Boring This Week

The Bad Batch, for the past four weeks, has been so much fun. There have been some surprises, some heartfelt moments that made me care about and love these characters that I once hated, and it’s just been plain fun.

And then today’s episode happened. Will it move the story forward? Yes. Was it necessary for character development, specifically for Omega? Yes. But it was boring!

I was excited to see the Zygerrian slave traders in this animation and they were as beautiful as I imagined they’d be but…it just wasn’t one of those fun episodes for me.

It felt like one of those classic boring Clone Wars episodes that you skip to get to the next good episode. Unfortunately, I can’t skip to the next episode so…

Minor Spoilers Ahead!

But one thing I will say about this episode. There’s been theories going around that Omega is Force-sensitive. This episode all but confirmed those theories when Omega was the only clone to figure out that Cid was actually Cid just by looking at him.

The fact that the Kaminoans may have created themselves their very first Force-sensitive clone is very intriguing for the story moving forward and its implications for the future. And could we see Omega return in live-action somewhere down the line like in The Book of Boba Fett or even The Mandalorian‘s Season 3? Or maybe even Ahsoka? We’ll see.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.

It’s Official: Oscar Isaac Is Moon Knight

There are a lot of really cool Disney+ MCU series coming up, one of them being Moon Knight. The first official casting for the series was Ethan Hawke in an undisclosed role but there still hadn’t been an official announcement of Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector/Moon Knight…until today.

After Isaac shared a post featuring him posing in front of some Moon Knight slips from the comics it is now official that he is indeed playing the mysterious moonlit vigilante and I am excited!

I’ve seen Oscar Isaac in a bunch of movies and I’ve seen his range as an actor. His best acting performances, I felt, have been in Ex Machina and Annihilation where he really transformed as an actor and I didn’t feel like I was looking at a variation of Poe Dameron. Seeing him become a Marvel superhero is going to be a nice change of pace (and a huge upgrade from his cringe-worthy/hilarious performance as Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse) and I’m really interested in what he’ll bring to the MCU.

My personal pick for the actor to play Spector was Adam Driver who I frankly think is a far better actor than Isaac. I really thought he would be able to embrace the character in a really profound an exciting way…but Isaac got it instead and I just hope he does justice to this character whose Wiki page is fascinatingly dark. We’ll see what happens.
