After a long hiatus due to the coronavirus, production on Loki is set to resume in August alongside other Marvel Studio properties such as The Falcon and Winter Soldier. Several fresh and veteran faces are joining Tom Hiddleston on Loki. Among them are Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, and Owen Wilson.
Can you hear that sound, my fellow slates of culture? Yes, it is indeed an update on one of our favorite high-grossing franchises, which is aptly named the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, this time around, it is some slightly dour news, as reports of three productions have been halted due to the unavoidable news that is the current pandemic. With the famous "Infinity Saga" bringing about the story arc end **SPOILERS** of both Iron Man and Captain America, we the audience were going to be treated with Black Widow, but it was pushed back to November. Playing a pseudo domino effect on the franchise as it were, this has resulted in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, and Loki all to being delayed.
This year has seen the delay of many films thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is best to be safe, but many people have been wondering when they may see all of the movies that they have been anticipating. It may be a while for things to return to how they were, but people cannot help but speculate. Movies are a form of escapism, and lots of people crave escapism during a crisis.

While DC/Warner Bros. have made strides including LGBT superheroes into their TV properties (albeit not such a great record on the movie front), Marvel/Disney is lagging behind. Things have been a little better at Fox, who've given us hints at Deadpool's bisexuality and paired him with the lesbian Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and made a series for the LGBT-friendly Runaways.

After Avengers Endgame hit theaters last year, a lot of Marvel fans found themselves in a delirious state of fatigue. Who can blame them? Endgame pretty much cemented the Marvel Universe as the biggest film franchise there is. In one of the most iconic final battle sequences, widely known as 'Portals', we saw all of our favourite heroes side by side in a battle cry against Thanos. By the time the credits rolled, it seemed as if there wasn't any other way to move forward. The death of Iron Man, fat Thor accepting his new image, Black Widow's death, Captain America ageing away and a talking as well as a less troubled Hulk seemed like a mighty final goodbye.
Superhero and movie fans alike can consistently find themselves in the heated debate of "Who is the Best Spider-man?".
