If you’re a Marvel fan this past weekend was utterly stupendous. On Friday we got more news about their animated projects and on Saturday Kevin Feige brought down the house with a mind-blowing slate of titles, thus revealing the end of the road that so many people have been asking for. So, with no further delay, let’s talk about all of this fascinating stuff, starting with the animated series.
I am Groot
In a few weeks, we’ll be getting an original series with five shorts featuring Baby Groot being, well, cute.
Last night was a packed night for Marvel fans. I’m talking jaw-dropping stuff. From new trailers and exciting title drops to exciting cast announcements and confirmations. And while there is MUCH to talk about thanks to all that mind-blowing news for now I will focus on the two trailers that were released online last night. Enjoy!
Ignore the CGi because it obviously looks wonky in some areas but I’m not focusing on that, this show looks fun as heck.
This ride with Ms. Marvel has been interesting to say the least. The first three episodes dropped simultaneously with Kenobi which made for some fun early Wednesday mornings. And the latest three episodes have seemingly flown by due to a storyline that, at times, has felt rushed.
However, despite the finale being fast-paced and feeling very Disney Channel, it’s still official. This is the best MCU series next to Loki and What If…?
It perfectly managed to tell the story it wanted to tell, it made Kamala Khan a character worth rooting for, and it has introduced us to yet another corner of the MCU that is about to expand. The heart of this series was the writers’ incessant addition of her family. They, as well as the empowering nature of this beautiful culture, were the highlights of this series. Without that side of the story I don’t think this show would’ve been nearly as good.
So yes, Ms. Marvel is a solid entry in this growing franchise. No, it isn’t one of my personal favorites but I appreciate what it’s setting up and the foundation it has provided Kamala. And yes, it has made me even more excited for The Marvels next year.
Iman Vellani, you are now iconic.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
On Saturday I went to see Thor: Love and Thunder with my family, totally expecting to like some of the movie but ultimately coming away from the film with some kind of disappointment. Instead, I enjoyed the film thoroughly from start to finish. So now that the weekend is over let’s talk about this film and all of its exciting (and emotional) moments throughout.
