One of my first segments of Who’s Your Favorite was Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine? Well, it’s time for the male heroes’ turn and there are many of them. There are a wizard and a radioactive spider-ling. An Iron Suit-wearing-billionaire and a patriotic super soldier. A King with a catsuit of vibranium and a God of thunder. The list goes on and on. And that’s why they’re the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy.
Doctor Stephen Strange wasn’t the exact superhero type. He was obnoxious, self-centered, and egotistical. Those don’t exactly seem like the traits of an Avenger. But after losing the function of his hands in a horrendous car accident he would become one of the greatest heroes in the world.
Colonel Rhodes is a soldier and so it’s no surprise that he would do anything in his power to protect those from harm. Even after a frightening injury he still was willing to suit up and face Thanos’s forces knowing there could be lethal consequences.

Tom Holland is known to drop major spoilers here and there and it seems like he’s done it again. As he responded to his fans on Instagram the other day he slipped the title of the upcoming Spider-Man sequel and I’m here to share it with you. Here it is. Spider-Man: Far from Home.
This title isn’t very telling which is a good thing because you don’t want to be able to predict the entire concept of a movie just through its name but it definitely is interesting. To some the title, Far from Home, can easily be referred to Peter Parker getting stuck somewhere in the galaxy participating in a wild adventure. But if Mysterio (Jake Gyleenhaal) has already been confirmed that he’s going to be the main villain in this upcoming sequel then maybe it will be a prequel after all. Maybe it’ll be a story featuring Peter Parker in another continent making more friends and helping to save the world,. That’ll be cool.
Whatever the case, the title has been revealed and now it’s only a matter of time before the title for Avengers 4 is finally released.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
While there are nearly two dozen superheroes saving the world time and time again in the MCU from life threatening villains sometimes they need help from their not-so-super, or sometimes kind of super, sidekicks to get the job done. So, in honor of these lesser advertised heroes, I’m dedicating a post to these characters who have brought me so much joy over the years.
I remember when I watched Thor: Ragnarok for the first time Heimdall was my favorite character from Thor’s world after seeing the movie. His eyes were strange and he was so cool looking as he stood as guard of the Bifrost (I think that’s what he was guarding.) Throughout the Thor franchise his awesome never particularly dwindled and his involvement in Thor: Ragnarok only helped increase his coolness. Unfortunately he was killed at the very beginning of Avengers: Infinity War so it’s a good chance we’ll never see him again but he was definitely an awesome compatriot of Thor’s while he lasted.

Spider-Man is arguably Marvel’s most prominent and recognized character in the comic world. Before I ever knew about Batman or Superman or Wonder Woman, etc, I knew who Spider Man was through this cartoon I used to watch all of the time as a child. It used to be one of my favorite pastimes as I watched Peter Parker fighting bad guys like the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus (he’s my favorite Spider-Man villain) and saving his girlfriend, Mary Jane, from the vile clutches of the villains. Since then, however, I haven’t really been a huge Spider-Man fan simply because the movies weren’t that great. I wasn’t old enough to watch the first major Spider-Man movies starring Toby Macguire. I saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring Andrew Garfield at a movie theaters. Didn’t like it. It took until 2016’s Captain America: Civil War to make me a Spider-Man fan again as Tom Holland’s perfect rendition of the character was brought to life. Since then I have become super interested in the teenage superhero again and now, with Sony providing us a look at another Spider-Man phenom who goes by the name of Miles Morales, I was super interested in seeing the trailer for this new movie. Here it is.
First off, I LOVE this animation. When I heard Sony was making another Spider-Man movie I didn’t know whether to be excited or confused. Wasn’t there already a story involving Spider-Man being told through the MCU? After seeing this trailer I am now beyond intrigued about this film for several reasons. One, like I said before, is because of the animation. When I think of an animated film I usually imagine something on par with Pixar’s design of animated movies or something a little more cartoony like Scooby-Doo but the animation for this film is 100% rad. It feels like the movie is catering to adults and children at the same time, for the animation feels like something I could see on Adult Swim, and yet the content of the film is of course very family friendly.

While the old era of the MCU is coming to an end a new era is arising and with it comes new characters and new villains to be explored. It was recently announced that the famed actor, Jake Gyllenhaal will be joining the MCU family as the new villain set to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 next summer. He will play the villainous role of Mysterio which, after reading up on the character, excites me a lot and perfectly matches with the story at hand considering Mysterio, in the comics, teamed up with The Tinkerer who has already made his debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
He also, in the comics, pretended to be Spider-Man and framed him for robberies and other horrible deeds like that. That could prove to be a tough obstacle for Peter Parker and definitely sounds like a greater challenge than he faced last time against The Vulture. I can’t wait to see the MCU version of this character and what he’ll mean to the story moving forward.
Does this news excite you as well and what other Spider-Man villains would you like to make an appearance in the MCU? I’d love to hear your opinions in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
Avengers: Infinity War was the first Marvel movie to add real stakes for the heroes and finally provide us some shocking moments that made the wait for this film totally worth it and with so many of our favorite heroes dying I’m here to share with you which deaths struck my heartstrings the most. Enjoy!
5. Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange was so cool in this movie. In fact, he was perfect for the film and so when Thanos snapped his fingers and half of all life in the galaxy came to a startling end I was devastated to see Doctor Strange become one of that massive number. To think that we would have to watch Avengers 4 unfold without him, at least for a time was a real heartbreaker for me. I can’t wait until he’s revived so I can enjoy him again.

In the past ten years Marvel Studios has presented seventeen! movies, all with their own style, own stories, and there have been countless incredible scenes between them all. Today I’m going to share with you my ten favorite scenes that have come from the movies that have spanned nearly half my lifetime. Enjoy!
10. Vision Comes To Life (Avengers: Age of Ultron)
Avengers: Age of Ultron wasn’t one of the best Marvel movies but it had one of the greatest surprises for me; Vision. One of my favorite things in a movie is a surprise you don’t see coming and I definitely didn’t see this coming. I remember watching the movie and as Thor electrified the case holding Ultron’s experiment robot with lightning he was residing in I was waiting to see what would happen. When Vision popped out of that container not as a villain but rather as an ally I was shocked.
And then…he grabbed Thor’s hammer and handed it to him! Mind blown! I was utterly stunned. Who was this remarkably powerful superhero that I had no idea about? And he had Jarvis’s voice! It was profoundly one of the greatest surprises I have ever seen in a movie and it’s why this is one of my favorite scenes.
9. The ‘Doctor Strange’ Ending
Doctor Strange was filled with mind bending visuals, hilarious moments, and great action scenes but my favorite part of the movie is literally the quietest moment of the film. Doctor Strange has helped save the world, he hasn’t officially taken the role of the Ancient One but he now stands guard over the New York Sanctum, and it’s just a really silent moment as he realizes the responsibility he now has. The cinematography is beautiful, the music is special, and as the camera zooms out and you see the Sanctum against the backdrop of New York I always get chills. And now, after Avengers: Infinity War, this scene is all the more magical as we now know what takes place in Doctor Strange’s journey a couple of years down the road and that’s an exciting realization.
