There are periods in history that are altering, game-changers. In 2018, Marvel Studios released the Ryan Coogler-directed black superhero film titled Black Panther based on the eponymous black superhero of the same name.
Unless you’ve been taking an internet detox, you probably heard about the divorce between Sony and Disney/Marvel. Which held the fans of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker (Spider-Man) in anticipation while the two multi billion dollar companies duked it out on how to split the millions of dollars this character was worth. Different sources are saying different things. But the majority of fans place the blame on Sony since the character they love so much began in the MCU with Disney.
The large & daunting collection of film that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has shown off its broad range of heroes over an 11 year run. Classic Superheroes have jumped from the pages of Marvel Comics to the movie screens, and in the process became house-hold names. Even some of the lesser known characters have turned to staples in the line-up, deservedly so. Among all the colorful characters has been a stand-out team member, Sam Wilson or The Falcon. Anthony Mackie portrays The Falcon in the characters appearances in the MCU, and has created a character worth more than just being referred to as Captain America’s side-kick. Sam Wilson has been a consistently strong and interesting character who has yet to be at the front & center where he belongs. Sam is the most underrated Avenger, and is a uniquely crafted MCU hero, which is what sets him apart from the line-up. The character is always open and honest, which provides a foundation for unparalleled bonds and relationships. Thus, making for interesting development that goes to show that he’s the Avenger the audience needs to see. Sam Wilson is more than just a superhero, he is a good man.
For a while now the future of the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants has been in question. When asked about it at one point, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who plays Wolfsbane in the movie, said she had no idea what was going on with the film. Some believed it was destined never to see the light of day. Filming completed back in 2017, but then extensive reshoots were needed to make the film work. It was then scheduled for release on April 13, 2018. But more delays pushed it back to a February 22, 2019 release. Then, once again, it was postponed to August 2, 2019, and that didn't happen either. But now that Disney is at the helm, we have a better idea about what's happening with this intriguing Marvel property, and a good guess of what it could end up being overall. Now that the merger is all said and done, the X-Men can begin the process of entering the MCU, an event fans have been wanting to see since the shared universe started back in 2008 with Iron Man. Disney has no plans to give up on the horror, adult-oriented X-Men film, and has seen fit to give it an April 2020 release date. The reshoots have been scheduled, and this movie is officially going to happen.
