What If? Finale Assembles Multiverse Avengers For First Time Ever

Marvel What If...? Episode 4-Doctor Strange Goes Mad With Power and Grief

What If…? Doctor Strange Lost His Heart? And His Mind?

t finally happened. After four episodes, our trip into the new MCU Multiverse has taken viewers to a Universe where there’s no happy ending. No light at the end of the tunnel! Everything that can go wrong does go wrong! And this week, the Watcher shows us a reality where Doctor Strange loses it, and everyone suffers as a result.

Return of The King. What if…T’Challa Became Star-Lord?

In 2020, the entertainment world was stunned by the sudden death of Chadwick Boseman, famous for his role as the Black Panther in the MCU. Before he died, though, he recorded lines for T’Challa for Marvel What if…? In this first outing, T’Challa becomes a legendary space outlaw rather than the Black Panther.

Marvel What If...? Episode 1-Captain Carter

What If…? Starts a Cautious First Look at MCU Multiverse

There are two great tools to storytelling: what if? and the multiverse theory. The other great tool of any storyteller is, fittingly, the multiverse theory. The idea of an infinitely expanding number of universes lends itself perfectly to this. And the MCU looks ready to capitalize on the concept that’s been present in Marvel Comics for decades. With the end of the first season of Loki throwing the gates to the Multiverse wide open, fans of the MCU get their first glimpse into these new realities with the new animated series “What If…?” For its first outing, we get a fun, but relatively safe, story involving Peggy Carter.

Marvel's Black Widow

Black Widow Triumphantly Returns the MCU to Theaters

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.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 5-The Bromance is Back!

Falcon and the Winter Soldier Stop being Sorry

You know, when I first saw Steve Rogers hand the Falcon the shield and wanted him to be his successor, I didn’t think much of it. I thought that Sam or Bucky were the best choices to be Captain America. I didn’t even give the fact that Sam’s African-American a second thought. However, the events of the last few years have reminded America that we are still struggling to deal with our racist past. And it’s something we’ll likely keep struggling with for a long time. However, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier reminded us of something important in its penultimate chapter. That if keep feeling sorry about our past, we’ll never fix anything. And this week, the Falcon and Winter Soldier learn to stop being sorry for themselves.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 4-The Infamous Scene

Did You Guys See What Walker Did To the Shield?

Do you ever ask yourself why Captain America’s tool of choice is a shield? I have two ideas why. Firstly, it makes him look like a total badass. More importantly, though, the shield isn’t meant to kill. It’s meant to protect. That fits perfectly with Steve Rogers’ personality. Today, though? Today, we saw John Walker, the US Government’s choice for Captain America, disgrace the shield. John Walker, you disgust me.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 1-The US Agent

What Do You Mean Falcon is Not the New Cap?

It’s been two weeks since the end of WandaVision. The show that took the world by storm and ushered us into Phase 4 of the MCU. In this post-Endgame MCU, everyone’s trying to find their way in a world without the Avengers, no Iron Man, and Steve Rogers an old man. A world where 3.5 billion came back after five years of being dead and loved ones died or moved on. And amidst the great action of the opening to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, its clear that finding a new normal’s easier said than done.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 3-Madripoor

Madripoor, the Den of the Power Broker

We’re now at the official halfway point to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and I’m a little worried. The series started out strong, and it seemed to continue that trend in last week’s episode as we met John Walker, the “new” Captain America. However, I feel like the show started to peter out this week as Sam and Bucky continue to investigate how the Flag Smashers got hold of the Super Soldier Serum. Unfortunately for them, that involves meeting the guy responsible for breaking up the Avengers and heading to one of Marvel’s most notorious cesspools. Everyone, this week, we head to Madripoor.
