Explore the very best, strongest, most powerful, and influential superheroes of all time.
WARNING: SPOILERS for WandaVision, eps 1 and 2. After an 18-month wait, mostly caused by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, MCU fans finally have new content, with Marvel Studios first TV series, WandaVision, dropping it's first two episodes on Disney +.
One common complaint of Wonder Woman 1984 is it is a stupid romance film. These gripes mainly come from men, who are not insinuating the romance is of poor depiction. Instead, the grievance is that romance itself is stupid. Again, the criticism invokes from your a-typical alpha male types who essentially wanted Wonder Woman 1984 to be a run-of-the-mill action blockbuster ala Fast and The Furious. Yet, this romance differs from typical superhero films. Furthermore, the best superhero films usually pull from other genres.
We're now less than a week away from the premiere of WandaVision, the first of the new MCU TV series, on Disney +. At this point, it is well known that the series will draw inspiration from classic sitcoms, moving through the decades in each episode, before eventually evolving into a full MCU movie scenario.
There's no denying that the Marvel film beginning with Iron Man was the film that allowed Marvel to grow into a success story, and for a good reason. Robert Downey Jr. had the most significant second chance anyone could ever get in their career, thanks to the fighting help of Jon Favreau to get him into the iron suit. We're all glad he did. We got an excellent introduction into a great franchise, as well as the very much deserved second chance for Robert Downey Jr.
It’s hard to imagine how an almost 3-hour film could leave us questioning so many plot holes. But if it’s a superhero movie, it’s almost like it’s part of the packaged deal now. Just think Avengers: Endgame. I am a huge Wonder Woman fan and I spent well over a year in anticipation of WW84. And while I am satisfied and still as in love with Diana as I ever was, this one was a stretch. But it made it--with some great moments. (Riding the lightning with the lasso was one of my top favorite things.)
WARNING: SPOILER ALERTS AHEAD! The whole 1980s aesthetic Terrible. Disgusting. Heinous. *insert vomit emoji* If you’re going to make a film set in the 1980s, MAKE IT LOOK LIKE IT’S SET IN THE 1980s. It just honestly should not be that hard, considering people who worked on Wonder Woman 1984 surely lived through that period of time. If not, there’s a dense catalogue of visual material (e.g. best movie of the 80s: Heathers) of what the 1980s actually looked like. Instead, WW84 served up a dish that looked scarily similar to what the 80s thought we would look like NOW, in Back To the Future II. Gross.
We have exciting news to share for all the Marvel fans out there as we are counting down a couple more weeks to the premiere of highly anticipated Disney+ TV series from Marvel Studios WandaVision as the kick off of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A whole new phase of the MCU is about to begin on Disney +. Series such as WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, and Ms. Marvel are all set to debut in the next year, bringing with them a host of brand new characters.
Warning: The following contains spoilers for Wonder Woman 1984! Many people are probably wondering if there is a reason to stick around after the credits of Wonder Woman 1984 for any of those notorious extra scenes that superhero movies have become notoriously known for these days. On the other side, if they did end up seeing it in theaters or on HBO Max, they are most assuredly curious as to know what exactly is going down in this intriguing final clip from the hugely anticipated sequel.
Before the big bang happened, there existed 6 singularities in the universe which existed in the form of infinity stones - space, time, mind, soul, power, and reality.
I think what’s so interesting about this school is the placements they put you in. Once orientation is over they put you in groups based on the forms you fill out at the door. Those forms are just there to ask what your power is, or sometimes powers. You then write your name and walk inside to watch orientation. Once in the groups you show your powers to a school master and they decide where your you fit best. For the first two years of super hero school your in these classes that are designed for your powers. They teach you how to use it, how to control it, and what kind of jobs to expect because of your powers. Because when you are out of here, the mayor gives you the jobs and you go where he says. The more powers the better pay. The last two years you are then placed with other super hero’s and you train to fight each other.
As the MCU moves into the future, and more old favourites retire, we will need new heroes to take their place. In the comics, after the main Avengers team briefly dissolves following the 'Avengers Disassembled' storyline, a new team of teen heroes calling themselves the Young Avengers step up hoping to fill the hole they have left behind.
