So the world of movie comics is in a bit of shook over the whole Disney/Sony ordeal, with most of the fans blaming Sony for being greedy. However, like all things in life, not everything is as black and white as they want you to think!
You know, it’s kinda sad that this question in the title of the blog is the very first question that some of us in the comic book/ MCU community has (whether internally or externally) now have to to ask when talking about the Fantastic Four after being announced to be coming to the MCU Phase 4. Will they be a straight, white, nuclear family, or is Marvel going to go full progressive on their fantastic butts?
Marvel finally unveils the massive Phase Four film and television slate which includes Black Widow (May 1st, 2020), Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Fall 2020), The Eternals (November 6th, 2020), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (February 12, 2021), WandaVision (Spring 2021), Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness (May 7th, 2021), Loki (Spring 2021), What If (Summer 2021), Hawkeye (Fall 2021), and Thor: Love and Thunder (November 5th, 2021). However, their last announcement is one that caught many by surprise.
You know, I’ve been hearing a lot of people already advocating or predicting for Ironheart to join the MCU Phase 4 and I get it. Most are just advocating for her simple on a diversity standpoint. More diversity is good, but poor handling of it makes the story bad. Now, I’ve been thinking on how they can introduce the character into the MCU without it creating plot holes or poor narrative. One idea that I had, which would also add weight to the character, is to introduce Ironheart as Tony Stark’s daughter, Morgan Stark.
Godzilla: King of Monsters was pretty much exactly what I wanted it to be, a vicious cage match between two alpha beasts. Sure, the story was mediocre, but the titanic CGI brawl was the main attraction and it did not disappoint.
You know, I know somewhere in the multiverse of comics there’s a child Kal-El that went pure evil and really let loose on his powers. BRIGHTBURN encapsulates on that idea to bring us one scary ass kid.
Alright, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is probably my favorite CGI movie based on a video game IP this year. The story may have been simple, but it more than makes up for it in humor and great CGI.
IT movie was probably the best horror film that came out in 2017 in my opinion. It had the right creepy factor to keep me up at night sweating cold sweats. I’m glad that IT CHAPTER TWO is giving off that same vibe as the first one.
Now, initially I wasn’t going to watch this trailer because I didn’t want to over spoil myself with this movie’s plot but since the internet hasn’t stopped talking about it, specifically about one scene that in theory will change the MCU forever, I had to share my take on it.
