Admittedly, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took me a while to get in to. But once I got past the fact that Coulson was dead, and now back, I loved it. What held me up? I was so afraid it would be super lame how they explained that away – don’t worry, it was actually amazing. If you haven’t watched this show yet, binge Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now, and then slide right in to Season 6, which is airing now on ABC.
In the most recent Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, we got a good idea of where this story line is going. We already knew that Mysterio was going to be in this movie, but now we see just how major a role he is going to play. Is he actually a hero? Likely not. But fans of the comics know to never trust him as he is a master of manipulation and deception. If you want a quick background on him, and what we might see for him in the MCU, here are 5 comic books to read.
When The Russo Brothers told the interwebs that the official Avengers: Endgame Spoiler Ban was going to end today, I should have known that meant a new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. Especially when it was put out there that the next trailer would contain Endgame spoilers. I also should have known this meant I was going to cry watching the trailer and discussing it after – but ya know, I thought my wounds were healed. Spoiler alert: they weren’t. Because I have a thing with needing to dissect Marvel trailers, here is my Spider-Man: Far From Home Official trailer breakdown – feel free to let me know of things you found in the comments that I missed!
If you don’t know that I am a huge comic book nerd by now, you probably never will. My favorite day of the year is coming – FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2019! Now every store runs this amazingly geeky day differently. I have been to stores where they allow people to take one of each comic if they wish, but most limit you to one from the “gold” section and one or two from the “silver” section. Depending on the year this can be a tough decision. In fact, it usually is (especially for me) because often the main story lines tie in to things that came out during Free Comic Book Day.
The X-Men are some of my favorite characters in Marvel Comics. I am not going to lie, I am HYPED that Marvel Studios now has control over this franchise. Some of the X-Men films have been….sub par. The final Fox owned film, Dark Phoenix, is coming to us this June, and I am mildly excited. It seems like every trailer we see, it gets better and better. To prepare those of you who know nothing about the Phoenix force, here is a list of 5 comics you should check out before seeing this movie in theaters.
If you follow me at all you know I was at the Avengers: Endgame World Premiere in LA last week. The second embargo broke, I gave you all of my spoiler free thoughts, but I still needed to process all sorts of feelings. By now you should have, hopefully, had time to see Endgame. But if you haven’t, please be warned, there are MAJOR spoilers ahead in this review.
As you likely already know, I am a total comic book nerd. So of course throughout both of my screenings of Avengers: Endgame, I was taking note of all the comic book Easter Eggs and references. Being that it is such an emotional movie and I literally watched most of it through tears, I am sure there are many more I have missed. I decided to collect my 10 favorites, that I am sure massive fans like me loved too!
Avengers: Endgame rocked me to my core. There were moments were I was literally sobbing. I have spent the last 11 years following these characters, and even longer reading them in the pages of my comic books. Endgame was the end of an era, and it was tied together perfectly. After Infinity War, I got through it by giving you my 10 most emotional moments, and now I am going to do that with Endgame. So here they are, in no particular order.
To say that I was excited to attend the Avengers: Endgame World Premiere is a bit of an understatement. If you know anything about me, you know that I am a HUGE Marvel fan. I have been reading the comics since I was a little girl, and seeing my favorite characters up on the big screen – it has been amazing! Here are all of my photos, videos, and more – from the red carpet premiere of Avengers: Endgame.
Yesterday I saw Avengers: Endgame. I watched it at the World Premiere in LA, surrounded by the cast and filmmakers. Have I processed everything I saw yet? Not by a long shot. Do I want to blab all of the spoilery details to you right now? You bet. But for now, this review will be completely spoiler free – stay tuned for one where I blurt out all of my feelings though. Let me just say, you are in for a wild ride – and it is PERFECTION.
