uperheroes aren’t the most stable, even in the best of times. Yet when you look at how messed up the Todoroki family has it, it makes half of what Spider-Man goes through look like child’s play. His Wife’s in a mental ward, Shoto still has a grudge against him, and his other son can’t stand him. The Todoroki family is broken, but Endeavor’s trying to fix it. The question is, can he?
I’m bummed that I couldn’t write this for the people at The Game of Nerds, but I knew that I had to do this anyway. The cast and creators of Amphibia and The Owl House joined together to sit back and talk about these two great shows. THE PROPHECY HAS BEEN FULFILLED!!!
As Eda comes to grips with her loss of power and the possibility that King and Luz might leave her one day, a face from her past shows up to recruit her into a rebellion against Emperor Belos.
While everyone would want the Bad Batch to get things ready for the endgame between them and Crosshair, this episode returns to the same weekly formula that we’ve come to expect.
Rebecca’s playing a sadistic card game with her dignity and legs on the line, but can she hope to come out on top against Lyra?
Twenty-five years ago, Warner Bros gave us the most unlikely of films, Space Jam. Combining live action with 2D animation, that film saw Bugs Bunny … Space Jam: A New … Continue Reading Space Jam: A New Legacy-Fun Film Weighed Down By Warner’s Insecurity
As the hero work studies restarts, Uraraka and Tsuyu return to work under Ryukyu. Then, an event happens that ties to the upcoming MHA film.
I know that he’s only been around for a few episodes, but I love the Golden Guard. Voiced by the talented rising star in the VA Community, Zeno Robinson, the Golden Guard quickly became one of my favorite characters in The Owl House. Considering how this series already has memorable characters, that’s saying something. Young, talented, and highly skilled, the Golden Guard serves as a great foil to both his predecessor, Lilith, and to Luz, with the show seemingly setting him up to be her new rival. However, we actually knew very little about this masked character. Until this week, that is. This week sees us gain some big insight into who the Golden Guard really is. In addition, we gain further insight into Belos’ plans for “The Day of Unity” and what his endgame is.
With her parents held captive and Ryloth occupied by the Empire, Hera turns to the Bad Batch to help break them out.
So One Piece just got back from the now expected two week break between chapters. And now they’re about to go on another two week break, since next week’s the start of the Olympics. However, Oda knows what to give us to keep us psyched up until then. In this case, we see Franky’s General Franky Mecha fight a, I kid you not, Triceracopter.
Okay, I know that Hiro Mashima seems determined to make Edens Zero darker and edgier than his previous works. But now it seems like he’s just determined to put the heroes through the ringer as many times as possible. First, Rebecca jumped to the future to learn she’s in a coma and lost her legs. Then, she wakes up to find that Lyra of the Ocean’s 6 has her dressed like a bunny girl and forced to play a card game in front of a live audience. And now, we find out just how bad things will get for her if she loses. And they are bad!
Thanks to COVID-19, it’s been more than two years since the MCU graced movie theaters. And while that problem was somewhat allieviated by the string of MCU shows on Disney+, it’s no substitute for sitting in theaters and waiting for the post-credits scene with your friends and family. This weekend, though, that drought came to an end with the arrival of Black Widow. This was a film that was long overdue for the titular hero in more ways than one.
Okay, I know I said that I was fine with waiting for the season to save the villain arc until the end, but now it’s becoming a problem. Like, a big problem. It’s throwing things at us without any context, and unless you’ve read the manga, then you’re going to be left confused. At least we’re getting closer to the moment we’ve been waiting for, though.
When people are creating a work of fiction that goes for an extended length of time, they tend to add in a b-plot to balance things out. When it comes to the format of a half-hour show, that usually involves one or more characters doing something concurrent to the main plot. However, sometimes the b-plot of a show can end up overshadowing the main plot. In this case, this week’s episode of The Owl House was meant to focus on Gus. Instead, everyone’s attention was drawn to the b-plot of Luz and Amity. More Lumity coming our way.
Ever since Disney took over the Star Wars franchise, they’ve been trying to run a tight ship. It’s not just axing most of the Expanded Universe. They’re trying to make sure that all Star Wars content is connected to each other in some way. As someone who was a fan of the EU, this strategy seems like a double-edged sword. Yes, it means less contradictions, but it also makes Star Wars not as big as it once was. Case in point, this week’s episode of The Bad Batch barely features them. Instead, it focuses on the origins of a future rebel leader, Hera Syndulla.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever told you guys this, but I think that Weisz’s superhero alter ego, Arsenal, reminds me a lot of Iron Man. Think about it: Weisz and Tony Stark are both mechanical geniuses and playboys; albeit Tony has more luck with women than Weisz does. They both continually upgrade their armor to help them fight evil. And, in the most recent example, they fight enemies using giant mech suits. Weisz kicks it into Overdrive in his fight against Nasseh, and he would make Iron Man proud!
