As an MCU fan, this week has been an absolute feast.
First off, a couple of days ago, this new official look at Thor: Love and Thunder revealed better looks at the two women who will most likely steal the show in MCU’s next film, Thor: Love and Thunder.
Tessa Thompson returns for her third MCU appearance as King Valkyrie and yes, she looks like royalty.
Next to her is Natalie Portman who has very much been transformed by the Marvel regimen and become freaking Mighty Thor. I mean look at her! This multiversal version of Padme would’ve given Anakin something to think about if he tried to turn against her.
And in the bottom-right corner is, supposedly, our first human version of Bast, the Panther Goddess who granted the Wakandans the power of the Black Panther. If that is her, she looks absolutely stunning.
Next, we have our first official look at Echo, a series set to drop next year about the deaf Native American gangster who we met in Hawkeye. The last we saw of her she had just “killed” Kingpin. Now the synopsis for the show paints a new chapter in her story.
The origin story of Echo revisits Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behavior in New York catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.
The series will feature a predominantly Native American cast with Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, and Cody Lightning with Grahame Greene and Zahn McClarnon. It’s also going to be directed by two Native American directors which is even more exciting; Sydney Freeland (Navajo) and Catriona McKenzie (Gunaikurnai.)
All in all, Echo is one of the upcoming series I’m most excited about.
And last but not least, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law now has an official trailer.
Yeah, the CGI is janky and I’m not quite sure how good this show is going to be but I like She-Hulk so…I’m hoping it’s a fun time.
The series will have nine episodes and debuts on Disney+ on August 17.
Here’s the poster.
Yep, Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 is featuring more and more great female characters and that’s very, very exciting.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
