  1. I think this has even bigger implications for the comics. Feige is now in charge of them, too, which is pretty insane. One has to wonder what this means for Perlmutter.

    DCEU: Killer Clowns from Gotham City

    Zoe Kravitz will star opposite Pattinson, as Catwoman
  3. I interpreted the part in the report about Sony's Spideyverse being "loosely connected" to the MCU to be somewhat like an AoS situation. Sony will have the power to reference the MCU, but the MCU will no doubt pretend like the Sony movies don't exist, but for Spidey.
  4. Kate Bishop is an amazing character, though. She is perfect for the role. I imagine Renner is on his last legs as far as the MCU goes. In the comics, Kate is jokingly referred to as the better Hawkeye, and in the case of the MCU, that can totally be the case.

    I didn't mind the logic problems in the HoX suicide mission because the pathos was so great. I can forgive a lot if you can write a story which makes me feel something, and yes, Hickman took deaths that will clearly be reversed and made me care. The scene between Nightcrawler and Wolverine was especially great. Monet was peak Monet -- "Try harder, Marvel Girl." Marvel Girl appears to be fairly nerfed in this story. I can't help but wonder if there's something to that, along with her decision to go back to her original Marvel Girl codename and costume. She's very animated series-esque, in that you feel like she'll faint in every panel. Today's issue of PoX had some great Sinister stuff. The blind items were a ton of fun. Can't wait to see people pick those apart.
  7. Can we talk about Variety reporting Hailee Steinfeld was offered the role of Kate Bishop for the Hawkeye Disney+ show? What an amazing get that would be. She'd be perfect, and beyond that, just the type of young actress that can usher in the changing of the guard we expect via Young Avengers.

    Absolutely STACKED week in comics. In spite of the groaning re: Marvel's "#1000" issue, I liked it a lot. I thought the story weaved throughout the entire issue by Ewing was really compelling -- enough to propel me through the one page stories which fell flat. And c'mon. At the risk of being cliche, HoX #3, y'all. Yes, there's the bigness of the arc itself, but I am loving the character beats we've been getting. The Emma Frost entrance in HoX #3 was almost as good as the Magneto stuff in #1. That panel is good enough to be added to the Emma iconography, worthy of being memed from now until the end of days. And Runaways continues to be the most slept on comic at Marvel. So damn good.
  9. Sersi is the most well-known, as she was the only Eternal to be an Avenger. She's also historically the wildcard, as she prefers to interact with humans throughout history instead of be a recluse. In some of the news blurbs I've read, Gemma Chan is touted as having the lead role, so something tells me that both her and Kit will be the main characters in the film, given the romance between Sersi and Dane in the comics. I was hoping this movie would be a period piece. The Eternals are thousands of years old and were mistaken for Greek gods during the time. I'd love to see the hyper cosmic designs of Kirby juxtaposed with that setting.
  10. Here's the full pic...the shadow is Wanda's, hinting at her classic costume.

  12. Heh, no big deal. Like I said, they could end up making him one in the movie. In the comics the Black Knight is a title which is passed down from the time of King Arthur, complete with the apropos magical sword. In the comics, Sersi and Black Knight were a couple for awhile.
  13. Black Knight isn't an Eternal. At least, not in the comics. I have no idea what they'll do with him in the movie. The brown coat Avenger fan in me feels so vindicated, with both Dane Whitman and Sersi announced at the same event. Much respect to MY Avengers... The sheer power of this image.
  14. Coogler returning to direct Black Panther 2, which drops May 6, 2022. Kit Harrington is playing Dane Whitman, the Black Knight, in Eternals. Gemma Chan is playing Sersi in Eternals, touted as the lead.

    The latest PoX was the first time Hickman went fullblown HickMON and had me laying in bed, rubbing my temples. How this man can keep all these ideas straight is beyond me, because I can't. This madman found a way to connect the Kree Supreme Intelligence, Warlock's Technarchy, and the freaking Phalanx into a single concept.
