Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine?

The MCU may have an abundance of awesome male heroes but over the years there has also been a rise of incredible heroines who manage to steal the show simply by their commanding presence. But which of these fascinating, crime-stopping, alien-annihilating ladies is your favorite? Here’s the list.

Mantis

Mantis is extremely lovable because of her sweet and innocent personality. She’s played a smaller role than most of these other heroines but her presence is undeniable and she is an asset to the team.

Nebula

Nebula hasn’t had the easiest journey but she has found a way to endure. She fought by Ronan’s side in Guardians of the Galaxy and after being reunited with her beloved sister she turned down a different path; one of revenge and redemption. How her journey will end, no one knows, but she will play an integral role in the fight against Thanos.

Here Are 5 Things I Can’t Wait to See in ‘Avengers 4’

I know it’s early to already start talking about Avengers 4. I mean, we haven’t even been given the title yet. But as the months draw closer to the film’s imminent release and my excitement grows I can’t help but share with you all the things I can’t wait to see in the film. So, on that note, let me share with you what I’m excited to see in Avengers 4.

1. Steve and Tony’s Reunion

steveandtonysecretsrevealed

The last time Steve Rogers and Tony Stark were in the same room it wasn’t pretty. After Tony discovered Steve had kept the awful truth of Tony’s parents’ death a secret from him he felt that he was betrayed and severed all friendly ties with his fellow Avenger, Captain America. With their friendship fractured Tony was totally prepared to never speak to or see Steve Rogers ever again but with the threat of Thanos upon Earth he was forced to confront the reality that he may need the patriotic hero’s help once more.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see that reunion in Avengers: Infinity War but that means when they finally do see each other again in Avengers 4 it’s going to be that much more heartfelt. Especially after the devastating events of the Infinity Snap Tony will probably be relieved to see that Steve didn’t disintegrate. I’m predicting many sniffles in the movie theaters during that heartwarming reunion.

Here Are Some Other MCU Characters That Should Get Their Own Show

Rumors circled a few days ago that Loki and Scarlet Witch would be getting their own shows on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney Play. But which other Marvel characters should also get their own television series? Here are some ideas.

Blade

Blade hasn’t debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet but what wouldn’t be cooler than to see this awesome superhero get his own series on Disney’s streaming service, Disney Play. It could be raw but contained enough for a PG-13 audience, it could feature some awesome MCU character cameos, and it could focus on a completely different corner of the MCU that we haven’t seen before. Sounds pretty awesome to me.

Here Are Some Characters Who Might Not Have Survived The Snap

Infinity War ended with quite a shocking conclusion as Thanos managed to obtain all six Infinity Stones and wipe out half of the universe (emphasis on half of the universe.) I was of course shocked to see some of my favorite heroes turn into brown ash such as Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther, etc. but recently I’ve begun to wonder who else may have been wiped from existence after the terrible event. So, I’m going to share with you all of the other characters that might have disappeared as well. Enjoy!

Wong

Wong made a brief appearance in Infinity War where he fought alongside Iron Man and Doctor Strange against two of Thanos’s children. He, of course, survived that encounter but can we be sure that he survived the snap? Nothing is certain.

Should There Be An All-Female Avengers Movie and Who Should Be In It?

Over the years there has been a fascinating increase of female superheroes in the MCU. There has been such a rise of awesome heroines in this franchise in fact that Tessa Thompson, who plays the role of Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, said that there should be an all-female Avengers movie. A group of actresses even went as far as to approach the top people in Marvel about the idea. So, should there be an Avengers movie that focuses on a team of only women? Um…yeah!

We’ve seen progress in how women are portrayed in superhero movies. Wonder Woman got her first solo film last year which featured not only the first female superhero to get her own movie but it had a female director at the helm as well. It ended up making just a little north of $800 million, proving that women could drive people to the movie theaters. This year Ant-Man and the Wasp was the first Marvel movie to feature a female hero in the title. And next year Marvel is going to feature their first film that focuses on a female hero’s origin story with Captain Marvel.

Why shouldn’t Marvel take things to the next level by introducing a movie featuring a group of heroes that consists of only women. One of the greatest moments in Infinity War was the awesome female team-up between Black Widow, Okoye, and Scarlet Witch. It gave a brief hint at what a female superhero group would look like and it’s pretty awesome. But who should be a part of this heroic team?

Nebula has always been an interesting character since her debut in Guardians of the Galaxy. She was only the second female villain to appear in the MCU next to Iron Man 3‘s Maya Hansen and she was kind of really cool. Now she’ll return in Avengers 4 and I couldn’t be more excited.

Valkyrie

Valkyrie is awesome, pure and simple. The Thor series desperately needed a major heroine equal to Thor and Valkyrie is that 100%. I like that not only is she tough but she doesn’t play by any rules whatsoever. She doesn’t bow before Thor when she sees him or grovel at his feet. She zaps him and honestly doesn’t care that much about him, at least at first. That’s definitely an upgrade from the infatuated Earth scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman.) 🙂

I Have a Question: Where’s Valkyrie?

Valkyrie became one of my favorite heroines following her debut in Thor: Ragnarok. She was spunky, tough, independent, and most importantly, she wasn’t treated as a love interest for Thor in the movie. There was some subtle flirting between Thor and her but the writers didn’t let their bond coalesce into a full-out love story. I appreciate that. So when Avengers: Infinity War came around I figured there would at least be a small cameo from her (which I was so excited about) but I couldn’t have been more wrong. There was no sight nor mention of her anywhere in the film and that leads me to my question: Where is Valkyrie?!

Valkyrie had a major role in Thor: Ragnarok and really placed her stamp on the movie. She was in the majority of the film which makes her one of the most important characters in the story and that means she should’ve at least been mentioned once or twice come time of Infinity War. That’s like if they hadn’t brought Wong into the movie. That wouldn’t have made any sense considering how close Wong is to Doctor Strange. So the only explanation that I can think of is that she was one of the Asgardians that Thanos didn’t kill.
