So Marvel had their big Comic-Con reveals Saturday night a lot of things to be very excited for even if I do feel a little burn out overall. And some choices make me wonder what they’re going to do with the stories.
First if I had heard Rachel Weisz was going to be in Black Widow I forgot about it in my Florence Pugh/David Harbour love. I’ll give Scarlet credit she’s built a top-notch talented charismatic cast for the film.
Also Don Lee’s going to be in The Eternals movie.
I literally screamed, “My train to Busan guy!” I loved him and between him and Richard Madden I’m going to have to read up on The Eternals.
The Blade news was cool but I have to go with my roommates first question, “Is it going to be Blade or is it going to be PG-13 Blade brought to us by Marvel?”
I was also super happy to hear Elizabeth Olsen is confirmed for the next Doctor Strange. I love her and her character and feared she was being shuffled off to the streaming.
Honestly if there’s a movie or two characters with which to do the multi-verse they’d get my vote.
On the other hand I’m not the least bit interested in any of the shows and the fact that now Disney is connecting them all to the movies is kind of pissing me off. But at least the movie should be interesting.
It was also announced that not only is Natalie Portman returning in Thor 4- she’s playing Lady Thor.
I actually loved this comic storyline and I think the actors could kill it. But I think one of the things that made it so interesting in the comic and so heartbreaking is the cancer. Would they touch that one with a hundred foot stick in the films?
Also Taika Waititi who directed Ragnarok is directing this one and while that film was entertaining I wouldn’t exactly say it was a balanced tone. He seems to prefer comedy which is fair and obviously that’s what people want. I also think the cancer element might read unfairly to some people like she was being punished even though that came before hand and it was a choice she was making to do what needed to be done.
Plus we really don’t need to give Thor more pathos.
So yeah lots of interesting stuff. Great castings all around but we’ll see where the story leads.

Great stuff. The only thing I saw was the Marvel releases from now until 2022. Some interesting projects! But they can get old sometimes.
Ha! They’ve only announced through 2022 I’m pretty sure Feige and Disney have movie plans until we’re well into our nineties begging for it to stop 🙂
That means if we are 90 then Chris Helmsworth and crew will be in their 90’s. Something will have to give! 😛😉
I’m actually kind of excited about the Eternals even if they are a bit quirky. I think it’s cool Marvel is going there. And I’m officially excited for the Strange movie now if Wanda is in it, and especially if they’re going dark.
It’s a fantastic cast so if they embrace the quirks and go with it I bet the movie could be a ton of fun!
Rachel Weiz is going to be Black Widow?!?!?!?!? *dies*
Right? I was a bit unsure of that one but the casting alone has me excited!
But, like, she’s kind of old? And young black widow… died? I’ll have to look into this, because on the surface it doesn’t actually make sense… But whatever, because I’ll watch literally anything she stars in.
Don Lee is so cool! It’s great to see him make an appearance in an American movie! I hope this means he is going to be breaking through. If you like him you might also want to see him in Bad Guys, a Korean drama series, where he also has a great role😊
I have that same feeling with the tv series being connected to the movies. It pretty much means you almost have to get a subscription to Disney+. But well…we’ll see. Some cool things coming up though, so looking forward to it!
I hope he breaks through to! I know very little about the Eternals but the casting is top-notch 🙂 And I will check out Bad Guys. Thanks!
Exciting things coming from the Marvel universe.
I know Daddy Hopper’s outfit is red in comics so with this beard he is gonna look like Santa Claus and I’m sure it will push me even more over the edge with inappropriate kinks. My God they must have paid Natalie so much money to agree to come back 😀
Oh man thanks for putting the Santa thing in my head 😉
I am not super excited about the TV shows either 🙁 With all the shows it is just too much to watch and I don’t have that much time!!! I am super excited for the new Thor tho 😀
