Vincent D’Onofrio reveals that X-Men star Hugh Jackman encouraged him to play a Marvel Cinematic Universe villain in a casual conversation.

Vincent D’Onofrio reveals that x-men star, Hugh Jackman, encouraged him to play a Marvel Cinematic Universe scoundrel. D’Onofrio made his Marvel debut as part of Netflix daredevil series in 2015, opposite Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock over the course of the series’ 3 seasons. The actor would appear once again in the 2021s Hawk Eye, reprising Wilson Fisk’s role as the series’ hidden villain.

Debuting as a shadowy figure in the New York underworld following The Avenger‘s Battle of New York, D’Onofrio’s Fisk in Daredevil is an intimidating and menacing crime boss who comes to blows with Cox’s Matt Murdock during the hero’s war against the criminals of Hell’s Kitchen. After bloody fights, prison sentences, and comebacks through the Netflix series, Fisk disappeared from the wider MCU due to Netflix ending production on their Marvel series amid Marvel Studios assuming greater control over their television production. D’Onofrio made his surprise comeback in Hawk Eye, as post-Blip Fisk has reforged his criminal empire through connections with Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmiga) and the tracksuit mafia of Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), targeting a prized item for former Avenger Clint Barton ( Jeremy Renner). Following his highly anticipated and widely rumored return, D’Onofrio revealed that a surprising Marvel star played a role in his pursuit of the role.

As reported by RBC, D’Onofrio made an appearance on the Marvel Press Office, where he shared that Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman urged him to pursue an MCU villain role in a casual chat. D’Onofrio shared that he knew Jackman through his family, and that when the two sat on D’Onofrio’s patio, the Kingpin actor expressed interest in the superhero genre after Iron Man has been freed. Stating that he would like to play a villain, D’Onofrio was later asked by Jackman to pursue a role. Read D’Onofrio’s full reminiscence below:


“The only thing that was on my radar at the time as far as superhero stuff was Robert [Downey Jr.]in Iron Man, which I found extremely impressive. I think I was actually with Hugh Jackman — he was at my house because our kids went to the same school, and we were sitting on my patio. . . and I said, “This superhero thing is turning out really interesting,” and he said, “Yeah!” And I’m like, ‘You know, I think one day I’ll get the chance to play one of these bad guys, and I think I could tear it up.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, I think you could too.'”


After months of social media teasing, D’Onofrio made his full on-screen return in episode 5 of Hawk Eye, “Ronin,” with co-star Hailee Steinfeld and episode directors Bert and Bertie praising the actor’s work on the series. Fisk would enter the fray in the following episode, “So It’s Christmas?” with him and the Tracksuit Mafia attempting to assassinate Eleanor Bishop as she threatens to break their deal. Attempting to kill a runaway Eleanor himself, the much stronger Fisk is picked up by Kate Bishop (Steinfeld), who dispatches him with cunning arrows. Fisk’s final appearance saw Maya holding him at gunpoint for arranging the assassination of his father, with the camera panning away as gunshots were heard.


Although the fate of D’Onofrio’s Kingpin is unknown, his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe was received with great enthusiasm by the fans. Like Jackman, D’Onofrio is considered the perfect representation of his character on screen. With D’Onofrio hoping for a bigger role in the MCU in the future, it’s interesting to hear how Jackman not only influenced modern superhero cinema through his own work in the x-men franchise, but a simple conversation between him and a friend led to one of the most beloved portrayals of villains in the history of the genre.

Spider-Man: No Way Home has been barred from getting BAFTA nominations after producers refused to allow the film to be placed on a streaming site used by judges.

Safety Alert: There are no spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home in this article.

Despite the impact of COVID, the film made its way into the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time after fans flocked to theaters to see Tom Holland’s latest outing as a Marvel hero. .

“I think the fans will be overjoyed” – Tom Holland

No Way Home had the third biggest opening weekend of all movies ever when it hit theaters around the world last month, only the Avengers movies in Infinity War and Endgame beating it – both also starring Tom Holland as Spider-Man.

The film was also praised by critics, but it may struggle when it comes to awards season, with the BAFTAs preventing it from being nominated for trophies.

Awards are influential in the industry, often acting as a precursor to the Oscars two weeks later by predicting winning films.

The BAFTA has told its thousands of voting members that the film does not meet the eligibility criteria, namely that it must be uploaded to the academy’s private streaming site before the close of the first ballot.

Sony’s refusal to allow the film to be downloaded on the BAFTA platform is believed to be due to piracy issues.

BAFTA told Sky News in a statement, “Spider-Man: No Way Home did not meet the eligibility criteria for the 2022 EE British Academy Film Awards and therefore was not eligible.

“As stated in our rulebook, all films must be made available to voting members on BAFTA View before the close of the first round votes to ensure fairness and parity for all titles and the film has not made available by the distributor. “

Sky News has reached out to Sony, the film’s production company, for comment.

Could Tom Holland host the Oscars?

However, there could be better news for the film’s prospects when it comes to events across the Atlantic, with Holland apparently set to host the Oscars this year.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, as part of a campaign to get Spider-Man into the big categories.

Holland, who recently told Sky News he was considering quitting acting, would be the first host of Hollywood’s flagship awards show in three years, with producers deciding to end the experiment of removing the only presenters from the show.

The 25-year-old Londoner from the South West has said in the past that he would be ready to host the event at some point, previously telling The Hollywood Reporter: “Of course I would welcome the f ****** Oscars !

“So yeah, if they asked me, I would, and that would be a lot of fun. I would really appreciate it.”

Only one superhero movie has been nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars (Marvel’s 2018 film Black Panther), but No Way Home’s success could force the judges’ hand.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now available in theaters.

10 Marvel characters who don’t need a solo book https://sorryeverybodymyass.com/10-marvel-characters-who-dont-need-a-solo-book/ Mon, 10 Jan 2022 07:15:00 +0000 https://sorryeverybodymyass.com/10-marvel-characters-who-dont-need-a-solo-book/ Marvel is one of the most popular entertainment brands on the planet, and the company’s comics are among the biggest sellers in the comic book industry.

Marvel is one of the most popular entertainment brands on the planet, and the company’s comics are among the biggest sellers in the comic book industry. It gives them some leeway to come out of the comics. They can afford to throw everything on the wall and see if it sticks. Beyond that, early MCU characters typically get solo books when their movies come out, an attempt at cross-media synergy.

RELATED: 10 Ways Spider-Man Changed The Marvel Universe

Marvel has been at the helm of sales longer than the MCU existed and has always given away all kinds of solo character books. A lot of them didn’t deserve it and nowadays there are plenty of characters who don’t really need a solo book anymore either.

ten Doctor Strange only got one book again because of the MCU


Doctor Strange has long been a Marvel devotee, but he ran out of steam in the ’90s. For a long time, the character disappeared before returning to the team books. Eventually, when news of his MCU debut hit, he got another chance to read a solo book, with writer Jason Aaron and artist Chris Bachalo’s team of superstars working on it.

While their print run performed very well, subsequent print runs for the book fell flat. Doctor Strange is too powerful to have just one book all the time; a creative team needs a holistic story to make it work. Beyond that, Strange as a character just isn’t interesting, so keeping him in a solo book for long periods of time doesn’t make sense.

9 Shang-Chi hasn’t had a solo book in decades, and only had one because of the MCU


Shang-Chi

Shang-Chi has a solo book again, and the reason is a bit of a mystery beyond the MCU. The last time Shang-Chi was a big deal was in the ’70s and while he has had fans nowadays, his appearances in the years since then weren’t really much publicized. Marvel gave him a complete boost when announcing his movie, but he’s nowhere near ready for prime time.

Shang-Chi only really works in certain types of stories and Marvel having it beating overpowered heroes and villains is just a little weird. The book is not selling very well and once his MCU star disappears, his books will be gone.


8 Deadpool got a little too ridiculous


Deadpool has long been a big seller, but his shenanigans have come to a standstill. Deadpool is more than jokes, but too many writers fall back on ridiculous ultra-violence. While it’s a lot of fun, a comic book just can’t get by for years on Deadpool Madness, and that’s what happened. While he doesn’t have a book right now, it can be argued that he will never need one again.

RELATED: 10 Ways The MCU Changed The Marvel Universe

The best Deadpool stories are far in the past. While there may be new ways to present the character, too many fans just want the same old, same old and this leads him down too familiar paths for fans to enjoy in the long run.


seven Scarlet Witch does not do well in a solo environment


Scarlet Witch Darkhold

Scarlet Witch is one of Marvel’s most powerful heroes, and she’s become quite prominent in recent years, both in the comics and in the MCU. A longtime avenger, she’s made a name for herself in the team books, but Scarlet Witch’s solo comics don’t quite work. At first glance, it’s a little weird; he is a character with a rich history and a lot to explore.

In practice, it never really works that way. She doesn’t have too many enemies to have her exclusive and the magic corner of the Marvel universe isn’t the most interesting. She’s still a great character, but no writer has ever found a way to make her work on her own.


6 Marvel keeps trying to win back Doctor Octopus’ top Spider-Man fame


Doctor Octopus

Doctor Octopus is one of Spider-Man’s oldest enemies. He got a major upgrade when he became the Superior Spider-Man, taking over Peter Parker’s body and trying to prove he was better than his old nemesis. It brought a rebirth to Doctor Octopus, but after the story ended, Marvel kept trying to get that back.

It never worked so well again; Marvel often tends to beat a dead horse and that’s exactly what happened with Doc Ock. He’s a great character, but he’s a better villain than a longtime solo star and every time Marvel tries to bring him back for another nostalgic tour they belittle everything.


5 The cable days are over


Cable Facing Nimrod on the cover of X-Force # 36 from 1994

Cable’s status as Summers makes him a powerful mutant royalty, but his popularity has always been a bit inexplicable. One of the mysterious and violent men of the 90s, his big guns and many aesthetic pouches went out of fashion a long time ago, but he’s still here. He’s one of the few mutants to back a long-term solo book, but it’s hard to say he needs it.

When it was announced that he would be getting a solo book instead of many other Great Mutants at the start of the Krakoa era, fans were mystified. Cable has been a fossil for years and even bringing in a younger version of him hasn’t breathed new life into the character.


4 The thing works best as a whole


The Thing is one of Marvel’s most popular powerhouses, but putting it all on its own is a weird idea. Marvel recently tried out another Thing comic and while people love the character, his solo books never last. He had a leading role in Marvel two-in-one in two different volumes but it is not really a solo book and it is floundering on its own.

The Thing is a great character when he can play around with others. On its own, it just isn’t that interesting. Teaming him up can’t work forever, so his solo books for him just don’t work that well.




3 Black Cat is better as a supporting character


Infinite score of the black cat

Black Cat is literally Marvel’s Catwoman. He’s a cat burglar who has a crush on Marvel’s first vigilante. While there are a few differences, she’s still a supporting character at best. Felicia Hardy may be fun, but she’s not at Selina Kyle’s level. Marvel only recently tried pushing her as a solo star, but it all depends on the skill of the book; it takes a great writer to do your long-term solo work.

RELATED: 10 Times The Avengers Changed The Marvel Universe

Divorced from Spider-Man, Black Cat is just another thief with a heart of gold. He’s not exactly a high-stakes character and his stories will always be the same. Eventually, even the best writers will run out of good black cat stories.


2 Venom has always been an odd choice for a solo star


Symbiotes have been a big deal at Marvel for a long time and it’s all because of Venom. Initially the most popular new Spider-Man villain of the ’90s, Venom jumped on the anti-hero bandwagon and has stayed there ever since. While there have been more interesting runs with the character, like the Flash Thompson Agent Venom version, Eddie Brock has never been an interesting hero.

Venom still feels like a character slowing down his success in the ’90s. There’s not much new to do with him, and any ideas that seem like they could work are a little silly.


1 Iron Man hasn’t been popular in the comics for years


Iron Man Alex Ross

Iron Man may be popular in the MCU, but the comics are a different story. Iron Man is one of Marvel’s most hated heroes in the comics and he’s earned it with years of terrible deeds. He betrayed his friends, became completely fascist after Civil war, and created the Illuminati, and aided them in committing large-scale genocide during the incursions.

Marvel tried to make it more in line with the MCU version of the character, but fans never bought it. He’s at his lowest in popularity for years and yet he has a career going and stars in a miniseries with Captain America, which doesn’t have a book of its own. Iron Man having a book and not Cap is a travesty. Iron Man hasn’t needed a book in years.

Darkhold: Omega # 1 sees the return of a weird, forgotten hero who hasn’t been seen or heard from for almost half a century.

WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Darkhold: Omega # 1, available now from Marvel Comics.

The Marvel Universe has long been home to some of the most powerful heroes in the world. Through the pages of the Eldritch Darkhold, a few Marvel heroes have been transformed into nightmarish versions of themselves in an effort to ward off the threat of the dark god Chthon. As astonishing as the sight of these demonic Avengers is, they pale in comparison to the return of a long-forgotten hero in Darkhold: Omega # 1 (by Steve Orlando, Cian Tormey, Roberto Poggi, Marc Deering, Walden Wong, Jesus Aburtov and Clayton Cowles of VC).


After returning from their journey to the Darkhold, the nightmarish heroes turn to the threat of an emerging Chthon. While the armies of the elder god are no match for their assembled might, the god himself turns out to be another story. However, Chthon isn’t the only character taking center stage in the issue. Soon the battle is interrupted by a blinding flash of light, with long-lost Marvel hero Omega the Unknown making a surprising return.

RELATED: Why A Twisted Spider-Man Had To Fool The Most Disgusting Leader Of The Fantastic Four


Omega the Unknown may not be immediately recognizable to many, but the classic hero is one of Marvel’s strangest heroes. Created by Protarian aliens in hopes of succeeding them, the man-made humanoid being known as the Model X3Z would become a warrior among the stars before finding his way to Earth. years 1975 Omega the unknown # 1 (by Steve Gerber, Mary Skrenes and Jim Mooney) told the origin story of the unusual being as well as his rise to superhero rank.


Omega was very formidable as a hero, able to create powerful kinetic explosions and use telekinesis. However, if left unchecked, his power was capable of destroying the planet. In the years 1979 Defenders # 77 (from Steven Grant, Mark Gruenwald and Herb Trimpe), the young hero sacrificed himself rather than seeing the inhabitants of his adopted planet hurt each other. Back then, it was a heartbreaking moment that seemed like it could never be overcome. Today, over forty years later, Darkhold: Omega reveals that death was never the end for this forgotten hero

Once Chthon’s threat is over, Omega returns to Earth alongside what appears to be the remains of the android who served as his surrogate decades ago. As the Wasp explained to the Mother-Head, Omega did not die on that fateful day over forty years ago. Instead, the android crossed through dimensions only to get lost somewhere along the way. In the years that followed, the Mother-Head prepared for her eventual return.

Neither Omega nor the Mother-Head seems to have bad intentions at the moment. However, the question remains whether the android has learned to control his powers enough to no longer pose a threat to the world. Either way, the Darkhold made possible the return of a hero who will likely be a formidable force for good in the days to come.

Earth’s Mightiest Heroes made an appearance in MHA: Vigilantes, but these Marvel champions were on the wrong side of the law.

My hero university stands out as one of the many popular anime / manga series that has a prequel, sequel, or spinoff series to its name, to extend the lore and deepen the characters. In this case, it is My Hero Academia: Vigilants, based on original works by author Kohei Horikoshi and exploring a new vigilante hero, Haimawari Koichi, as he fights to keep the streets safe.

This derivative manga is a bit lighter in tone than the original My hero university, with notable but charming cameos from other series, including an eerie Thomas the Tank Engine– Inspirational villain named Tommy S. Gordon. Meanwhile, another notable cameo reinvents Marvel Comics’ superhero team the Avengers as minor villains.


RELATED: My Hero Academia Creator Releases Festive New Year Artworks

Subverting the expectations of My Hero Academia: Vigilantes


The parallel story My Hero Academia: Vigilants is not actually a parody series, nor a cheap throwaway tie. It’s a substantial story in its own right, with character development and cool action scenes to match, plus plenty of guest appearances from characters like the R-rated hero Midnight and the flaming Endeavor. That said, this is not the main story, so creators can take some creative liberties with the story of Vigilant and explore ideas that might seem odd or out of place in the main series, including notable internet memes and cameos that might distract the main story. This includes the villainous Abegawa Tenchu ​​Kai, which had at least seven members until it was wiped out.


At some point in Vigilant, a ruthless vigilante called Stendhal – later Stain the Hero Slayer – learned of Abegawa Tenchu ​​Kai’s whereabouts and moved on. Stendhal caught the bad guys off guard and slaughtered them, including the first four members. The seven known gang members are all inspired by the fame of the MCU’s Avengers and, in a fun way, their roles in Vigilant subverts the expectations of viewers.

We already know that the My hero university the series borrows heavily from American comics and Star wars movies, with Gran Torino being the new Yoda and Yuga Aoyama emulating Cyclops / Scott Summers. This time around, the original heroes aren’t just little villains, but are also killed right after being introduced. It helps to define Vigilant apart from the main series, because anything can happen in Vigilant and things are not what they appear to be. This time around, the Avengers are throwaway villains, and it’s definitely not in the original. My hero university rule book.

What the Avengers villains can do in My Hero Academia: Vigilantes


vigilantes tetsu

The character designs for the members of Abegawa Tenchu ​​Kai help clarify that Vigilant can afford to shamelessly duplicate characters from other IPs quietly, especially seeing how the main My hero university the story needs to be more subtle about it. Vigilant is a story where the rules are relaxed, which not only leads to subverting readers’ expectations, but also allows creators to happily recreate their favorite pop culture icons without restraint. Thomas the Tank Engine was just the start.


The members of Abegawa Tenchu ​​Kai clearly resemble the inspirations of the Avengers, including the four main members: Iron Man, Captain America, the mighty Thor, and the Incredible Hulk, with Hawkeye, Black Widow, and the Winter Soldier serving as backups. minor. They also have quirks and personalities to match, like the villainous Captain America, Ryoija Yonenaga, using his Quirk-based strength to throw manhole covers just like Captain America’s original shield. There’s also Soji, a bearded man who wears a construction hammer and can generate lightning bolts with his Quirk as a clear allusion to Thor the Asgardian.


It all plays into the interconnectivity of today’s pop culture, where movies, comics, cartoons, internet memes and more overlap and pay homage like never before. Pop culture and media today are very porous and self-aware, and characters like Abegawa Tenchu ​​Kai are clear proof of this. It’s wonderful to see the Avengers again – even if they are minor villains who fall on Stain like cannon fodder.

Eternals director Chloe Zhao reveals why she chose to refer to Batman and Superman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

Eternals Director Chloe Zhao has revealed why the Marvel movie mentions DC heroes Batman and Superman.

The director spoke to Empire as part of the magazine’s major story article, the film’s upcoming arrival on Disney +, and Eternals reception by critics and the public. During the discussion, Zhao was asked about the film’s references to Batman and Superman, which means DC characters exist as fictional heroes within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

RELATED: Eternals Director Reveals ‘Dark’ Alternate Ending Audiences Hated

“I take responsibility for it,” Zhao said of the decision to mention Batman and Superman in the film. “I just think we should all live in one big happy family. And also, you know, we can talk about the elephant in the room – who is this Ikaris. [Richard Madden] remind people of Superman. Many brilliant filmmakers have brought Superman to the screen in their own modern take on this beloved mythology that exists in many cultures. So I thought it was great to pay homage, it’s great to recognize these iconic take on Superman. In Eternals, Gilgamesh [Don Lee], watch his movies while he takes care of Thena [Angelina Jolie]. You will see that there is going to be a deleted scene where he talks about another movie that is going to make you smile. And he loves the Batman movies. “


As Zhao points out, Ikaris is quite similar to Superman given his set of powers. It’s Phastos’ son who points out the similarities in the film, although Ikaris points out that he doesn’t wear a cape. The reference to Batman comes when Karun claims he is Alfred de Kingo’s dark knight, alluding to his role as the dedicated helper / servant to the superhero and his civilian alter ego. As for the third reference, it looks like fans will have to wait for the Eternals deleted scenes to happen.

It wasn’t just the DC Universe that Zhao wanted to refer to in the movie. His love of Star wars It also meant that she introduced Eros and Pip the Troll as Han and Chewie, a dynamic we’ll likely see unfold when the post-credits characters inevitably return to the MCU.


“They’re like Han Solo and Chewie. Arishem was looking for him, and he just became a space outlaw,” Zhao said. “That’s the character I had in mind. But I never once said to Kevin, ‘This is the character. Let’s find an actor.’ For me it was a forfeit. It must be Harry. That’s how I introduced him to Kevin. “

Eternals arrives on Disney + on January 12.

Today, I argue that Mockingbird’s past with Phantom Rider should be more or less restored in continuity.

In Winds of Change, I highlight some retcons that I think should be implemented, like how I think Apocalypse should have been behind Wolverine to get his adamantium.

One of Steve Englehart’s most remarkable storylines during his run on West Coast Avengers was the epic adventure known as “Lost in Space-Time”, where the team took a long journey through time (as back in the present, Hank Pym decides he’s dishonored himself enough. to end everything). Time travel also had a controversial story involving Mockingbird which led to his marriage to Hawkeye breaking up for a time.


RELATED: The Scarlet Witch Should Be A Mutant Again

WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN MOCKINGBIRD AND THE PHANTOM RIDER ORIGINALLY?

It all started in West Coast Avengers # 18 (by Steve Englehart, Al Milgrom and Joe Sinnott), when the West Coast Avengers were time traveling. They were in the Wild West (a period that Hawkeye spent time with in the past and befriended many of Marvel’s Wild West heroes) when they got ready to leave and suddenly one Heroes of the West, the Phantom Rider (who had seemed a little too obsessed with Mockingbird during their short stay together) abruptly prevented Mockingbird from traveling with the rest of his Avengers teammates !!

The next issue, the Phantom Rider then drugs Mockingbird to erase her memories and make her fall in love with him …


His disturbing plan seems to be working!

Eventually it starts to work really well and Mockingbird and Phantom Ride basically become a couple …

His disturbing plot continues to work well in the next issue …

However, there is obviously something in her past that connects her to her past life, like her fascination with one of Hawkeye’s modular arrowheads that she soon begins to use as a necklace.

In the next issue, however, the other Western heroes (who were naturally wondering why their friend Hawkeye’s wife suddenly abandoned her husband to go with Phantom Rider) conspired to break the effects of the drug on Mockingbird, and when they did, well, she didn’t take it well …


This story came to a head in West Coast Avengers # 23 (by Englehart, Milgrom and Sinnott), when Mockingbird tracked down Phantom Rider and confronted him …

He handles it all terribly and even threatens to KILL HER!

But during their confrontation, she knocks him off the cliff and he manages to grab onto the ledge, but even here, as he needs her help to avoid falling to his death, he’s a fool for her, ordering her to save him …

She just lets him die …

Eventually Hawkeye found out (through the Phantom Rider himself, who was now a ghost in modern times) that Mockingbird had let Phantom Rider die and Hawkeye was a total jerk about it. Not “my wife was tortured by this psychopath!” but “my wife let a guy die!” So they decided to divorce.


WHAT IS THE CURRENT CONTRACT WITH MOCKINGBIRD AND THE PHANTOM RIDER?

In Mocking bird # 8, the latest issue in the rather good but fleeting Mockingbird series from Chelsea Cain, Kate Niemczyk, Sean Parsons, Rachelle Rosenberg and Joe Caramagna, Mockingbird is on cruise while her ex-husband, Hawkeye, is on trial for the Bruce murder Banner during Second civil war. Since Mockingbird was found alive for Secret invasion, she had been disturbed by the ghost of the Phantom Rider.

Well, in this latest issue, Phantom Rider reappeared to annoy Mockingbird and there’s a major throwback to the previous storyline.

First of all, Phantom Rider is described by Mockingbird as his “ex” …


And we learn why later in the issue, as she explains that everything that “drugged” her was a lie Hawkeye just told himself about why Mockingbird cheated on her with the Phantom Rider …

WHY WAS THIS MOCKINGBIRD RETCON A BAD IDEA?

Okay, first of all, that now means Mockingbird let Phantom Rider die for … no reason, right? She just decided not to save the guy she was cheating on her husband with for … why? It does not mean anything.

I totally understand wanting to get away from the whole “letting the guy who basically raped me die, which led my husband to wanting a divorce” part of Mockingbird’s past. It’s a strange part of his past, for sure. But you do it just by not entering it, not by actively bringing the topic back again, only by changing it so that it no longer makes sense.


Also, it probably wasn’t the best idea to establish that it would be “ridiculous” to believe that Mockingbird could ever do something against their will, as it certainly seems to imply that if someone else was drugged. to do something against her will, then it’s clear they just weren’t strong enough to avoid her, right? It doesn’t quite deviate from the area of ​​victim blame, but it certainly does come close to that area. Much closer than you probably would ever want, really.

I did a “remember to forget” about this when the problem came out, but I really think it’s a noticeable enough misstep that they have some future history establishing that it is. no longer the case. Again, I don’t need Mockingbird to dwell on its past with the Phantom Rider, but bringing this back only to make Mockingbird look WORSE is a pretty bad idea in my opinion that it would be worth it. to ask someone to erase. that Marvel continuity story.


Well, that’s it for this tome! If you have a suggestion for a retcon that YOU would like to see, drop me a line at brianc@cbr.com and maybe I’ll agree with you and feature them here!

Minnal Murali: best superhero movie of the year could teach Marvel how to solve its villain problem https://sorryeverybodymyass.com/minnal-murali-best-superhero-movie-of-the-year-could-teach-marvel-how-to-solve-its-villain-problem/ Sat, 01 Jan 2022 03:56:14 +0000 https://sorryeverybodymyass.com/minnal-murali-best-superhero-movie-of-the-year-could-teach-marvel-how-to-solve-its-villain-problem/ There are exactly seven good villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies (one more if you count the shows).

There are exactly seven good villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies (one more if you count the shows). That’s a rather disappointing success rate for a franchise that includes 27 films and has had over a decade to resolve this issue. You’d think missteps like this would teach them a lesson, but for every Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Black Panther, there are a dozen baker’s movies like Ant Man and the Wasp and Thor: The Dark World. Collectively, this repeated offense is known as the Marvel Villain Problem, which has also found a way to infect the recent Spider-Man: No Path Home. But who knew that an Indian superhero film from the Malayalam industry, released a week later, would be the one that could rightfully teach the multibillion-dollar juggernaut of Marvel a lesson in how to create antagonists? convincing.

Directed by Basil Joseph and with Tovino Thomas, Minnal Murali is a great time in the movies, and in a year that has given us 10 new MCU projects and a four-hour DC epic, this is the best superhero story you’ll ever see. This isn’t just because of the patience with which the film tells its deliberately low-key story, but in large part because it gives its protagonist – a village boor named Jaison – a worthy opponent, played by Guru Somasundaram.

Minnal Murali is well read in the cinematic parlance of superhero movies – it borrows elements not only from Superman and Batman lore, but also from key elements of Spider-Man’s backstory. But on closer inspection, you’ll notice he’s tiptoeing around the same trap that consumed Thanos knows how many MCU movies, but has the common sense to never fall for it. Like Iron Man 2, Ant Man, and even Black Panther, Minnal Murali’s villain is essentially an evil clone of the hero.

Jaison and Shibu are both struck by the same forked lightning on the same fateful night, giving them exactly the same powers. They’ve both been looked down upon by the women they love, and along the way, Shibu and Jaison realize that they are, and always have been, strangers. There’s a reason you often hear villains in Hollywood movies saying things like “You and I are a lot alike” to heroes. It is because they are; they were deliberately written as such.

In a sense, Jaison and Shibu were (re) born on an equal footing on that fateful evening; they are two sides of the same coin. But their circumstances transform them into very different individuals who undertake parallel journeys of biblical significance. In another world, they could have been friends, if not brothers. But as Jaison is touched and ultimately inspired by the stories of his late father, Shibu’s bitterness resurfaces when the only person he has ever loved is taken from him. “I alone know the value of my loss,” he cried. “Neither you nor I can do anything about it. “

They are bound by grief and prejudice – the same cop hurls a caste insult at Jaison, while significantly noting that Shibu is a Tamil. Minnal Murali is a vibrant superhero movie at first glance, but there’s an endlessly fascinating subtext on religion, class, and myth-making.

You might remember how in Iron Man 2, Justin Hammer and Ivan Drago use the same technology as Tony Stark. Or how, in Black Panther, Killmonger is literally blood related to T’Challa.

Minnal Murali exploits this drama for a good two hours, as it delves so deep into Shibu’s past that you might mistake him for the hero – he’s certainly in his own head, as he goes on a delusional mission to help a desperate woman. need that. But when it turns, followed by a wonderfully well done sequence on a farm, you don’t doubt it for a second. Those willing to stick with the film, as it takes winding narrative paths that may not always make sense to viewers who grew up in the style of American superhero cinema, will be rewarded.

Not only does this duality create gripping drama, it also forces you to consider the seemingly arbitrary factors that influence our outcome. It’s not like Shibu never felt compassion in his life – he did – but it broke him. It could be a case study of a man hungry for affection. Ostracized and defeated, Shibu placed undue importance on the first person who showed him love. And that became his downfall. But who can not relate to this?

The goal should never be to excuse the behavior of the antagonists in stories like this, but to explain it. At no point does Minnal Murali suggest that Shibu deserved to live, but fleshing him out for two captivating hours, it brought to light the tragedy of his inevitable death. Shibu didn’t have to die, you’re sorry; neither did he have to make the choices he made. But how many of these choices have been made for him? Was he always destined to turn like this, doomed to live a worthless life from birth? The “what ifs” are impossible to eliminate.

Not all heroes wear capes, they say. But they never tell you that it’s okay for some villains to look like middle-aged mustached uncles.

Warning: this article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Path Home.

wonder fans bemoan the two loneliest heroes in the MCU. Phase Four finally kicked off this year, and 2021 offerings began and ended with two of the most popular stories in the entire franchise. Namely, the first Disney Plus series WandaVision – which has been widely acclaimed and awarded with success – and the blockbuster threequel Spider-Man: No Path Home, which broke all kinds of box office records.

But while these two projects saw a surge in popularity for both Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, they put these two heroes to the test as well. VM and No way home might be hugely loved by the fandom, but they left Spidey and Scarlet Witch as the two loneliest Avengers of the bunch. This achievement was made by u / phantom_avenger on the r / marvelstudios subreddit:

Phase four co-MVPs.

Others are not so sympathetic to Wanda.

Meanwhile, some believe Loki’s loneliness deserves some recognition.

Peter and Wanda had suffered a lot across the MCU before, but their experiences in these two projects really gave them a hard time. For starters, Wanda not only had to lose Vision again, but her children were also taken away from reality. Likewise, the wall-crawler had to say goodbye not only to his Aunt May, but also to his entire life, as the memory of Peter Parker was erased from the world.

The result was that Peter and Wanda’s stories this year ended in exactly the same way, with the two being totally on their own. At least we know that Wanda will soon have some company in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness when the wizard calls for his help to repair the multiverse. As to where Peter’s trip from here goes, it’s too early to tell. Certainly at the moment Spider-Man and Scarlet Witch understand the full meaning of the phrase “with great power comes great responsibility.”

With Spider-Man: No Path Home and Hawk Eye aside, we’ve got over five months to wait for the next MCU Phase 4 adventure. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens May 6, assuming there are no further release delays. Then again, it’s very likely that Marvel will release a brand new TV show on Disney Plus before then. But we have no idea what the next 2022 Disney Plus project is – the list includes Ms. marvel, she-hulk, and Moon knight. While waiting for more news from the MCU, we have plenty of rumors about upcoming Marvel attractions, including a development that teases the official introduction of the next new member of the Avengers: Marvel’s Ghost Rider.

He’s a character we’ve been waiting for years to arrive in the MCU, but Kevin Feige & Co. haven’t mentioned him since the first Phase 4 roster unveiled. That could change along the way, and it could happen sooner than we thought.

The first rumors of Ghost Rider

It was in September 2019 that we heard that Marvel wanted Ghost Rider in the MCU. It was a simpler time before the start of the pandemic. At the time, we thought Phase 4 would end in November 2021. We didn’t know 2020 would shut down the MCU entirely. Or that Marvel was going to add so many more titles to MCU Phase 4.

Marvel already had a Ghost Rider version that could have been easily added to the MCU. This is Gabriel Luna’s Robbie Reyes, who appeared in Agents of SHIELD The same character should have appeared on a Hulu show as well, but Marvel ultimately canceled it. We didn’t know at the time if Luna would be playing Ghost Rider at some point in future Marvel movies or TV shows.

Even then, some MCU fans wanted Norman Reedus to play Ghost Rider in the MCU. Luna himself said in May 2017 that he would like Reedus to play the Johnny Blaze version of Marvel’s Ghost Rider.

All of this brings us to the present day. The first year of MCU Phase 4 adventures ended on a high note following the successes of No way home and Hawk Eye. And Reedus is suddenly posting Ghost Rider teasers on social media after rumors were rumored that Marvel picked a new actor for the role.

Marvel’s Ghost Rider may have been chosen

The loved one Walking Dead the actor recently shared a link to an Instagram post on Ghost Rider with an accompanying image (also seen above).

As you can see in the tweet, the image shows Reedus on fire, like he’s playing Ghost Rider. Here’s what this Instagram post says:

Marvel Studios has reportedly picked an actor to play Ghost Rider in the MCU. Since the news broke, Norman Reedus has liked several tweets about him describing the character. Are you happy with Norman as the MCU’s Ghost Rider?

Insider Charles Murphy recently said on Twitter that Marvel could have launched Ghost Rider, although he did not reveal a name. He said he was happy with the choice but it wouldn’t be Keanu Reeves playing Marvel’s Ghost Rider. Murphy later deleted the tweet, but that online chatter continued.

Reedus’ social media activity seems to imply that he landed the role he coveted. But Feige has yet to make any announcements about this character.
