We’re Finally Getting A Black Widow Movie!

Yes, the title of this post is correct. A Black Widow movie is finally in production eight years after introducing the awesome assassin to everyone and I am thrilled. If I’m being honest, I wasn’t a fan of Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers because she was portrayed as this flirty assassin who I felt didn’t really convince me as an Avenger. Then when she appeared in Captain America: The Winter Soldier she had moved beyond being just the hot assassin and became a character with an actual back story that I found more and more interesting in every movie that she appeared in. Then by the time Captain America: Civil War ended I was a full-fledged Black Widow fan.

For years I have been wondering why a Black Widow movie hasn’t been made yet. I mean, here was this already developed and well liked character who was an Avenger for crying out loud and yet Marvel thought it would be better making movies about unknown characters such as Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, even Spider-Man got a film and he had only, what, ten-fifteen minutes onscreen while she has been in five movies! The sexism is plain as day. If Black Widow had been a man he would’ve been had his own film.

I mean the idea that Natasha Romanoff wouldn’t be able to hold her own in a movie is absolutely bogus. She has been kicking butt and taking names since the first movie she debuted in and I know for a fact I would profoundly enjoy an entire film showcasing her taking on dastardly villains with espionage and seriously awesome assassin skills.

So, now that Marvel has finally come to their senses and is making a Black Widow movie that’s rumored to come out in 2020 here are the things I would love to see in a Black Widow film.

My Fifteen Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Characters

Early last year I wrote a post about my ten favorite Star Wars characters and at the time Rogue One had been out for a little less than two months, I had just recently discovered that Episode VIII was going to be called The Last Jedi, and I simply had an entirely different view on Star Wars as a whole.

Now, I’m updating the list and because there are so many more characters that I like I’m extending the list to my fifteen favorite characters. Enjoy!

15. Cad Bane

Cad Bane is undoubtedly one of the coolest bounty hunters that I have ever seen in Star Wars. He has this Country-Western sort of vibe with the twang of his voice and, obviously, his outfit. He’s also one of the slipperiest bounty hunters that I’ve ever seen. It seemed that every time he was about to be captured he got away. Ugh.

Whenever he showed up on a Clone Wars episode I always got extra interested because usually when he appeared it meant that something serious was about to go down. There are a lot of characters in Star Wars but he managed to become one of my favorite characters.

14. Finn

Finn is such a great character. He was the first ex-stormtrooper to appear in a Star Wars movie and I loved his growth throughout The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. In Episode VII he was much more unsure of himself and his heroic actions were based solely off of emotion. In Episode VIII he learned what it meant to be a hero and while he was at first hesitant to take that responsibility by the end of the film he was a full blown Resistance fighter willing to do anything for the cause. I can’t wait to see the final leg of his journey in Episode IX.

13. Chirrut Imwe

Chirrut is awesome for so many reasons. He’s the first blind character to be in a Star Wars movie, he was the first person to possess the Force as strong as he did and not be a Jedi or a Sith, and he was one of the first major Asian characters to be in a Star Wars movie. Even though he’s in only one movie he was so incredible that he forever wiggled his way into my heart.

 

12. Poe Dameron

A lot of people couldn’t stand Poe in The Last Jedi and yes, at times he was very brash, but he’s one of my favorite characters in Star Wars simply because he’s such an incredible pilot. Whenever he gets into a cockpit and starts piloting a ship, whether it’s a Tie Fighter or an X-Wing, I always get so happy. When he whoops with exhilaration after performing something incredible I always pump my fist along with him because of my excitement. Poe, I’m sure due to the events in The Last Jedi, will be a great leader in Episode IX but I hope we’ll get some more piloting action from him.

The Greatest Duos in ‘Star Wars’

Star Wars is packed full of incredible characters throughout all of its nine films and while most of the characters usually head on their own path some of these lovable individuals end up becoming remarkable teams that have become iconic in film history. And so today I’m going to talk about the duos in Star Wars that have always brought a smile to my face and made the movies that much better. Enjoy!

Finn and Rose

The latest installment in this nine film-and-counting franchise, The Last Jedi, brought a new character to the Star Wars universe, the adorable Rose Tico, and placed her alongside the lovable Finn throughout the entire movie, immediately making them one of the greatest and cutest duos in Star Wars so far.

One of my favorite scenes in The Last Jedi was when Rose first meets Finn.

Not only is it one of the funniest scenes in the movie but we get to see how Finn has really become the “big deal” that he lied and said he was in The Force Awakens due to Rose gushing over him when she first meets him. She soon realizes that Finn was actually trying to desert and that’s when we get to see that her character isn’t one to be trifled with which I love. As she’s taking the stunned Finn to her superiors it immediately establishes the chemistry between the two characters as they realize what they must do at the same time to fix the hyperspace tracking situation. From thereon they partake in a daring mission that strengthens their friendship and highlights how great of a team they really are. And thanks to Rian Johnson not killing Rose after she saved Finn from committing suicide to save the Resistance I’m sure the two will have many more exciting adventures together and I can’t wait to see them.
