The Wasp was close to being cast in the film Avengers Assemble.
Janet was originally cast as the Wasp in the film Henry Pym’s Wife during its early stages. However, because Black Widow had already been introduced in Iron Man 2, she was chosen to play the role of the last Avenger.

Wolverine appears as a regular character in The Avengers and The New Avengers series that ran through the years 2010 to 2013. However, the author Brian Michael Bendis had the character join the New Avengers dating back to the year 2005.
The original human Torch is used to create Vision.
Professor Phineas Horton created the original Human Torch, who was an android in Marvel’s mainstream continuity. Vision’s awareness, on the other hand, is derived from the brain patterns of Wonder Man, who has been suspended in time for some years.
This is the start of Hank Pym’s construction of a synthetic Vision, which he did by stealing brain patterns from the Avengers.
In the comics, Scott Lang’s daughter grows up to be a superhero.
Cassie matures into Stature in the comics. Cassie joins the Young Avengers and The Initiative as a member.
She also has the same abilities as her father.
Agent Coulson was given a regular role in mainstream Marvel Comics by Marvel fans.
The character was originally merely a minor one. Fans, on the other hand, adored him so much that the writers were obliged to include him in the mainstream Marvel Comics storyline in 2012.
The character is now a full-fledged member of the Secret Avengers. One of the Marvel statistics that shows how much they care about their fans.
The Punisher once collaborated with Eminem, a well-known rapper.
Another bizarre Marvel fact: Marshall Mathers, better known by his stage name Eminem, collaborated with the Marvel antihero in a comic book published by Fred Van Lente and Salvador Larroca in 2009.
Eminem got into the comic book business when he recorded an original song for Sony’s live-action film for Venom.
The Avengers’ headquarters are continually expanding.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you can see a shot of the Avengers’ HQ with additional annexes with each movie. During the Avengers: Age of Ultron film, the HQ is seen as only one annex while in the final Avengers film, Avengers: Endgame their HQ takes up a large mass of land.
In the Marvel comics, Drax was a normal human being.
Arthur Douglas, popularly known as Drax the Destroyer, was originally a regular human who was assassinated by Thanos, the Mad Titan. However, after detecting an imbalance in the cosmos, the abstract entity Kronos resurrected him. How’s that for some interesting Marvel trivia?
Marvel considered the X-men series a second-tier title.
Despite this, in 1969, it was canceled. The X-Men series did not achieve popularity until it was revamped in 1976, according to Marvel.
By that time, the series has introduced an entirely new cast of characters, including Wolverine and Storm.
Marvel uses the death of Bucky Barnes to justify why there are no young sidekicks.
Marvel states that no hero would ever want to endanger a minor similarly as Captain America did during the Second World War. In Marvel Comics, there are almost no adult sidekicks besides Falcon.
Deadpool looked up to Captain America as a kid.
Wade Wilson joined a super-soldier program and forged a bond with Steve Rogers while forging his career as Deadpool. Wade Wilson was able to establish a reputation for himself as their friendship grew stronger over time.
Steve Rogers has grown to be one of the only people who understands and respects Deadpool.
In the film The Avengers, Huginn and Muninn saw Thor kidnap Loki.
Two ravens can be seen soaring over during the scene where Thor and Loki have a talk after escaping from The Avengers. Huginn and Muninn are the names of these two birds.
In the Thor comics, these two ravens serve as Odin’s agents, bringing intelligence to the God. In both the first Thor film and its sequel, Thor: The Dark World, the identical ravens can be seen perched on either side of Odin’s throne.
Jarvis, Tony Stark’s butler in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is an A.I. helper.
Just A Rather Very Intelligent System is the acronym for J.A.R.V.I.S., which stands for Just A Rather Very Intelligent System. This natural-language user interface computer system was named after the butler that Tony Stark’s father, Howard Stark, had.
The Avengers lost the Incredible Hulk.
Despite being one of the Avengers’ founding members, The Incredible Hulk departed the team shortly after their first comic-book battle with Loki. His resignation was motivated by the realization that his team members were terrified of him.
It took fifty years for the Incredible Hulk to rejoin the team after their previous encounter.
In the Marvel universe, Santa Claus is the most powerful mutant.
The strongest mutant ever registered in the Marvel Universe is Kris Kringle himself. Cerebro uttered this on Christmas Eve in the far future.
Originally, Jon Favreau was hired to direct a comedy Captain America picture.
However, this plan fell through, and he was instead asked to helm the first Iron Man picture. In addition to Spider-Man Far From Home and Iron Man 2, he has directed several films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
To make an allusion to Iron Man, Tony Stark wears a Black Sabbath shirt.
This is a reference to Iron Man, one of the band’s most well-known songs. This song, on the other hand, has nothing to do with the Marvel superhero.
In the original Iron Man film, this song was also utilized to play over the end credits after Tony Stark declared himself to be Iron Man. That’s an interesting Marvel fact.
The Mjolnir has the ability to obliterate galaxies.
Thor’s hammer, the Mjolnir, is frequently seen as a weapon. The owner of this hammer has the ability to produce force fields so powerful that they can destroy entire galaxies.
It can also travel through planets to return to its wielder’s hand and can also move and manipulate large structures such as the Washington Monument and the Taj Mahal. It can also influence items at the molecular level and control magnetic fields.
Thor was created by Stan Lee to be The Hulk’s adversary.
Stan Lee created Thor to introduce a being more powerful than The Incredible Hulk. He stated that the only thing more powerful than a man would be a god.
The X-She-Hulk Men’s and Rogue have been licensed by Marvel.
Marvel planned to use these characters for romance novels aimed towards female audiences, since comics traditionally had a male following.
Marvel once published an employee’s resignation letter in a comic.
In 1979, former Marvel Comics artist Dave Cockrum had resigned and later found his resignation strangely inserted into the Iron Man comic issue number 127. His letter was featured in a panel which shows Stark’s butler, Jarvis, resigning after an abusive episode with Tony Stark.
Review Wakanda Forever: Black Panther.

You are kindly invited to a funeral by Marvel Studios
You should be aware that this is the tale of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
The narrative honors the late Chadwick Boseman in every way, even as Marvel moves the plot along and establishes a replacement as the leader of Wakanda
The Black Panther sequel ends up being unusually depressing for this reason. Some of my audience members did cry, sometimes at the most unexpected times
In terms of the movie, I’m still undecided. I kind of loved it. It broke my heart in other ways
In this ambivalent review of the Black Panther film without the real Black Panther, I’ll go over both the good and the bad
A Loss Story, Either Way
After Boseman’s tragic passing, a discussion erupted online. Fans pondered the Black Panther’s replacement after Boseman
When he revealed that he finished the script the week before Boseman passed away, director Ryan Coogler recently tore people’s hearts out
Obviously, the project had to start over after this significant loss. Boseman would have made Wakanda Forever significantly different from what we’re currently seeing
King T’Challa returned five years after The Blip, so Coogler insisted that even with Boseman, the story would have involved dealing with loss
As T’Challa/Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman
In that tale, Wakandans would already be in mourning. But since the film’s opening states the obvious, we see that on screen instead
Now dead is King T’Challa. His absence leaves two voids: one as Wakanda’s ruler and the other as the Black Panther, the nation’s protector
Killmonger’s destruction of the Vibranium plants required for this transition in the first movie makes it seem as though replacing the Black Panther is impossible. As a result, Wakanda seems hopeless and lost
Vibranium is a word that sounds eerily similar to vibrance, so don’t pass it by. The sequel recognizes that without Chadwick Boseman, we have all lost that
One versus five
Because of this, the sequel allows art to imitate life as four different women lament the centrifugal male figure in their lives
The loss of Ramonda’s only son must be mourned in addition to her recent widowhood. Her extreme overprotectiveness of her last child, Shuri, results naturally from this
Wired is the source of the image
Shuri, on the other hand, struggles with using her rage as a coping mechanism for her grief. Nakia, the only person who could assist her, skipped even her lover’s funeral before leaving for Wakanda
Okoye, the Dora Milaje’s warrior leader, is the next. With everyone’s heart broken, she is attempting to hold the pieces of a kingdom together
Riri Williams, a fresh new character whom Target hinted at in a series of ads, is the last one we meet
In this tale, Riri plays the role of the outsider who ties the puzzle together
In some ways, Coogler changed Riri’s name in the dialogue to Shuri. This sums up the character. She is Black Panther 2’s technological goddess
Riri and Shuri, who are sisters from different worlds, are undoubtedly brought together by their shared intellectual interests. However, it is an external presence that truly ties them together
Even though the word “Atlantis” is never used in this movie, King Namor and his people are introduced for the first time in the MCU. They aren’t Atlanteans at all, presumably to avoid comparisons to DC’s Aquaman
They actually live in Talokan’s underwater realm and, while they are not Wakandans, they are certainly more powerful
Wakandans and Talokans are accidentally introduced by the United States, and a tense relationship results
The Latin American actor Tenoch Huerta Mejia, who was previously unheard of, and who gets the uncommon “and introducing
. ” credit in the movie, plays a pivotal role in the conflict
Wakanda Forever is a struggle. Namor poses a threat to peace and has no regard for humanity
In the process, he unintentionally starts a war with five fierce women, the majority of whom are Wakandan
The movie’s issues really start to show here. Throughout the story, Namor’s motivations are inconsistent
Bloodshed might have been avoided if he had come to the same conclusions sooner rather than later
Additionally, I didn’t find the character to be as interesting as the one in the comics. Namor first appeared in The Invaders, making him older than Marvel itself
I’m fascinated whenever Namor engages in conflict with or collaborates with the Fantastic Four because he’s such a conflicted antihero
He mostly comes across as a haughty jerk in Wakanda Forever. Although they are hollow, Coogler gives the character some scenes of sympathy. That irritates me because Killmonger, one of the top three MCU villains in my opinion, was presented in Black Panther. Black Panther has two talent gaps as a result of this
Boseman is one, whereas Michael B
The second is Jordan
Namor is just not as interesting as Killmonger. A poor analogy
In fact, I found myself thinking about relationships throughout the movie at various points. You typically date a few people you know won’t last long after a breakup
Get over your ex types, they are. The same sentiment can be applied to Namor and the whole film. Making a Black Panther sequel without the Black Panther presented Coogler with an impossible task. He unquestionably gave it his all. And allow me to be clear on this: I’d give Wakanda Forever a 7
Overall, 5 out of 10
Simply put, it isn’t Black Panther
Marvel Studios. When we see the same actors onscreen without Boseman or Jordan, the echoes of that movie seem like vivid dreams of loved ones who have passed away
I’m avoiding a few spoilers here and will elaborate on this topic a few months from now
Nevertheless, it perfectly captures how I felt about the sequel in general. I would probably awe at Wakanda Forever’s caliber and emotional resonance if I hadn’t seen Black Panther. We would have loved Wakanda just as much in 2018 if this tale had been our introduction to it
It’s not, though
So I didn’t
Accepting What Wakanda Forever Is. Consider the same scenario for a widow using the dating analogy once more
When you meet a potential partner, you realize you need to start dating again. But you’re aware that they’re not quite as good as the partner you found to be worthy of marriage
At some point in the future, they might be. Simply put, you’re not prepared to feel that way about someone else once more
That’s a brief summary of my experience with Wakanda Forever
There were so many things I liked about the movie, especially Riri Williams. In this movie, Dominique Thorne steals every scene just like Letitia Wright did in Black Panther
Recall that at the time, fans had already demanded that she succeed T’Challa as either the leader of Wakanda or the Black Panther. In this role, Riri brings that kind of, uh, vibrance
Martin Freeman also makes another appearance and lends his endearing everyman charm. Even more so, he makes a shocking revelation that I find genuinely delightful
When it comes to M’Baku, Winston Duke is back and once again excellent
The women of Wakanda are given priority in Coogler’s narrative on purpose. Picture from Vanity Fair
Due to this, M’Baku is relegated to supporting roles and serves primarily as comic relief. Keep in mind that he wasn’t just T’Challa’s friend; he was also an enemy
His grief would therefore manifest itself differently from that of the four Wakandan women. It belongs in another narrative
However, I’m still holding out hope that he’ll somehow have a bigger role in the upcoming Wakanda series on Disney
But even so, I can see why he’s not crucial to the story. The final words. Coogler was faced with that difficult decision
He was in mourning after recently losing his friend. But the future of a franchise and hundreds of millions of dollars were at stake. Consequently, Coogler was forced to improvise a new plot
The one he created is incredibly captivating
Just not the one we all would have chosen, it’s different
I attended a funeral that Marvel invited me to, and the entire time I was grieving and emotionally empty even as I was in awe of the people who had been more severely affected than I was

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has finally arrived in theaters after four turbulent years, the passing of the franchise’s leading character, and a turbulent sequel production
That will be the only topic covered in this week’s MarvelBlog News for obvious reasons. Everything depends on it
Wakanda Forever Gets Off to a Flying Start
Start by going over the fundamentals. On Thursday, the North American premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took place
With regard to Friday’s box office, Thursday sneaks for the sequel brought in an impressive $28 million
That’s significant because it’s below the sum that Thor: Love and Thunder attained, which suggested a lackluster weekend
However, Friday also happened to be Veteran’s Day, which caused a surge in ticket sales
Hasbro/Marvel Studios are the sources
The sequel to Black Panther drew a sizable American audience on that holiday. Due to the holiday boost, Friday’s sales were $84 million. In terms of box office receipts, that ranks as the tenth-best Friday ever
When analyzing the Saturday and Sunday numbers, a few additional variables are taken into account. Yet Wakanda Forever accomplished what seemed insurmountable
Box office revenue on that first Friday was higher than the $75 made by Black Panther in 2018. 9 million dollars, plus $25. 2 million in revenue on Thursday
No sane person anticipated that Black Panther 2 would surpass the $202 million opening weekend haul of its predecessor
Disney and Marvel were after all marketing a Black Panther movie without the character’s internationally renowned actor. A tough sell, that one
In light of this, a domestic opening weekend gross of $180 million must be viewed positively by all parties
Disney predicts a $330 million opening weekend worldwide gross for the movie
The International Problem in Peril
You’ll notice that North America accounts for the lion’s share of Wakanda Forever’s revenue. That is not an accident
The international box office is still a hazy proposition for all Hollywood films, as was already mentioned here
Due to the pandemic’s lingering effects, some countries haven’t fully resumed their normal operations. Others simply don’t have the same level of theatrical demand as they did in 2019
Comparatively, Black Panther’s sequel’s opening weekend gross of $370 million was outperformed by $40 million. That wasn’t a reasonable expectation, though, to reiterate
The fact that Wakanda Forever’s international box office BP2 has doubled that of recent films The Batman and Black Adam is what matters
I used Thor: Love and Thunder, the most recent MCU film, as the boundary for this title
Thor 4 made $303. During its first weekend, 2 million people watched it globally. Additionally, foreign countries accounted for more than half of its overall global total
Oddly, the economy back then was stronger than it had been for Wakanda Forever
Both films were shown in China, which had a significant negative impact on sales but not on the overall result
Hollywood films do not do well in China. The market is more important for its ancillary income like merchandise and potential licensing
Due to all of these factors, Wakanda Forever legitimately faces one of the reviews that is the most open-ended of any tentpole movie I can ever remember. And I used to make a living by writing about box office
Critics will draw attention to how poorly it has performed in comparison to the original and selectively compare it to other Marvel movies
The $250 million production budget of the film will be used as evidence by fans of the franchise to claim that it will probably make money when it is released in theaters
Personally, I had kept tabs on early ticket sales and tracking and prepared for the worst possible outcome here. Therefore, I consider Wakanda Forever’s performance to be a strong demonstration of franchise power
I find it amazing that BP2 made 10% more money on opening weekend than Thor4
Black Panther’s reputation was strong enough to triumph over insurmountable odds
The statistics of Wakanda Forever Let’s talk about a couple of the sequel’s outstanding issues
First off, Wakanda Forever was a huge hit with both critics and viewers. BP2 has an 84 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 75 percent rating among Top Critics as of the time of this writing
In the meantime, the movie hasn’t experienced review bombing (yet?)
Therefore, with a 95 percent Audience Score, it is absolutely brilliant. Wakanda Forever boasts a Metacritic score of 67, which is higher than the most recent Doctor Strange or Thor sequels
The grades on IMDb and Cinemascore are somewhat at odds
IMDb currently rates BP2 at 7. 4 out of 10, which is respectable but unremarkable. However, Cinemascore, whose ratings are based on opening day attendance, gave the movie an A
Without a doubt, Black Panther received an A. Therefore, this isn’t quite as good. Still, an A is significantly superior to the Bs received for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder
Recall that Cinemascore uses an odd curve
Anything that doesn’t receive an A- isn’t a good film that will probably last longer. But a movie that gets an A ought to get good buzz
And A titles are incredibly uncommon, highlighting how significant of a cinematic accomplishment Black Panther was. These statistics taken together show that viewers liked Wakanda Forever, probably even more than they anticipated
Unfortunately, the box office picture overall is more cloudy, at least for the MCU as a whole
The global opening weekend of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness brought in $450 million. The two subsequent releases haven’t come close to matching this total since then
In the meantime, the MCU’s reputation has suffered. Despite the fact that I disagree with the evaluation, I frequently read remarks from respectable people who disparage Phase 4’s general quality
Phase 4 unquestionably comes to a successful conclusion with Wakanda Forever, but Marvel still needs to do some convincing to get viewers to return to the theater
However, it’s possible that this is a general industry issue rather than a Marvel problem
The era of the mega-blockbuster is either coming to an end or is currently in decline. Either way, you could present evidence to support your claim
Hollywood needs to put out more quality films, according to the head of AMC Theatres. Marvel obviously accomplished that just now and received a positive outcome
But rather than a home run, I’d call it more of a double.
Top MCU Film Villains.

The best villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to date, in my opinion, would be chosen by a unanimous vote from any group of (sane) people
We’re only now beginning to recognize the lasting influence Thanos and Loki have had on the film industry several years after the fact
Even now, all MCU spinoffs face criticism because of (potentially unjust) comparisons to Thanos and Loki made by their villains
I wondered what this thought process was. Who are the greatest MCU movie villains to date, if those two bad guys are removed from the list? Rumlow, Brock
Kevin Feige is incredibly effective, which is something I admire
He rejects the idea of useless parts. Brock Rumlow, for instance, is first introduced to us in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Because he is Crossbones, an assassin who enjoys collecting weapons and is a fairly common supervillain, comic book fans immediately recognize him as bad news
Image: Hollywood’s heroic side
By introducing Rumlow as someone who idolizes Captain America, Feige and the movie’s directors, the Russo Brothers, solve this issue
Seriously, the entire time Steve Rogers performs, that guy is overcome with awe
Of course, that makes the altercation between the two in the elevator much more personal. The fight ultimately involves Rumlow and his hero, Rogers, despite the fact that there are a lot of other guys on the elevator at the time
This shows that Rumlow will go to any lengths, including murdering his hero, to carry out a mission
Later, the character makes a second appearance in Captain America: Civil War, where he once more sacrifices millions of people in order to complete his mission
The distinction between good and evil is becoming increasingly elusive in our day and age
Brock Rumlow exemplifies this to a T. Barnes, Bucky
USA Jacket is shown in the picture
Diane de Poitiers, a famous French noblewoman, once said, “To have a good enemy, choose a friend: he knows where to strike
“. The fundamental idea behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier is that
Steve Rogers is a hilariously flawless hero who is completely incapable of doing wrong. When that person squares off against a foreign terrorist who also happens to be his best friend, how does he respond? picture via Pinterest
In this movie, Bucky Barnes plays a relentless, destructive force of nature
The fun comes from watching the noble Rogers gradually expose the hero hidden inside the villain by tearing away at Barnes’ impenetrable exterior
This movie is a masterwork of narrative
Vanko, Ivan Given how polarizing Iron Man 2 has been over the years, I might receive cards and letters for this one
Justin Hammer is probably considered the better villain in the movie, even by those who like it
I completely understand that as a longtime fan of Sam Rockwell
But that viewpoint is demonstrably incorrect
Ivan Vanko’s performance as Tony Stark’s evil counterpart is the key to Iron Man 2’s entire plot. Despite the fact that Vanko did not have a fortunate upbringing, the two men have similar intelligence and work ethics
Vanko begins working on a riskier version of the weaponized suits after Stark establishes proof of concept. He then adopts the name Whiplash
Regardless of your opinion of the film, it is impossible to deny that the scenes depicting Whiplash’s coming-out celebration during a Formula 1 race are compelling
Pic from SyFy Wire. Vanko’s disdain for cake eaters like Hammer also reflects Stark’s own contempt for bureaucracy
The men are eerily similar to one another, giving them a good reason to dislike one another
As an MCU story, it’s In a Mirror, Darkly
The next two villains put a different twist on the same idea
It’s a tainted mentor/protégé relationship’s domineering nature. Peter Parker is still in shock following the death of his father figure in Spider-Man: Far from Home
Here comes Mysterio, a multiverse-hopping superhero who resembles a more composed version of the late Tony Stark. Parker quickly puts his trust in this man, which is unusual for someone who is currently on a school trip
But when we are young, everyone is stupid
Later, we discover the truth about Mysterio, whose irate tech character would likely be more sympathetic today given the recent Twitter shenanigans
Even though it is not as deep as.
, the depth of this betrayal still cuts deep
In 2008, I steadfastly jumped on the Iron Man bandwagon while the rest of the world gushed over The Dark Knight, ultimately naming it the year’s top film
The complex relationship between Tony Stark and Obadiah Stane, his late father’s partner, was essential to the movie’s quality
Iron Man requires a little bit more scrutiny in light of what we know about Howard Stark in order to understand how the man could have so drastically misjudged his partner
To permanently take over Stark Enterprises, Stane planned Tony’s abduction. That’s
pretty extreme. Once more, the normally carefree playboy was affected by Stane’s level of betrayal
Tony had looked to Stane as a father figure ever since Howard Stark passed away. That person hired mercenaries to abduct and kill Stark
Stane’s first thought was, “I’ve gotta steal that!” after Stark created an Iron Man suit in a cave. Obadiah Stane and Iron Monger from the Marvel Legends series. Hasbro is shown in the picture
His next thought was, “My suit is better,” which came later. I’m going to use it to murder Tony Stark
“. In retrospect, Howard Stark made lousy moral judgments
Even now, I’m unsure if Jarvis made a good butler. Yes, there were times when Avengers: Age of Ultron was a bit of a mess
Joss Whedon, the film’s flawed director, and Feige disagreed on a number of production-related issues. Today, most people support Feige because of the passing of time
However, we cannot discount what James Spader accomplished in the role of Ultron. a close associate of Robert Downey Jr
Spader has proven to be Tony Stark’s sin monument since they were teenagers and the ideal counterpoint. After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the remains of an Ultron Sentry can be seen in a display case in the ride line
Avery and Rebecca Kaplan are shown in the picture. Finally, the inventor produced something he had no control over
Stark was alarmed when it started to act independently
An Isaac Asimov superhero tale then came to pass
And it was fantastic! Because of Ultron’s fierce independence, he was able to capitalize on humanity’s innate anxiety about the potential rise of machines
Name as many MCU supervillains as have actually triumphed
Helmut Zemo is the lone survivor
Zemo didn’t engage in a frantic scramble to seize power, in contrast to many other villainous characters in the MCU. Instead, Zemo devised a strategy, carried it out flawlessly, and ultimately destroyed the Avengers
Tony Stark was convinced by Zemo that the Stark matriarch had been murdered by Bucky Barnes
Tony feels conflicted about Howard, but he has soft feelings for his mother
The strongest heroes on Earth dispersed as Zemo laughed, Cappy defended his friend as expected, and Tony sought retribution
Later, he danced
Jon Watts is a complete genius and someone who most likely has a fascinating tale to tell
He came up with Peter Parker’s worst nightmare, and that’s the only reason I can think of for it. What if the girl accompanying Spider-Man on his homecoming date was a supervillain’s daughter, Watts wondered
Please ask Watts about his own experience at the homecoming dance if you ever interview him. Please tell me. Vulture, however, functions well as a character for two reasons
First, he was wronged by the government
He was working with people he trusted to run a successful business. Then, a superhero incident forced the company to suffer business losses, which ultimately led to their jobs being lost
The character used some of the tools to start a life of crime because he had no other option
His moral code was peculiar, though. The rare movie villain who respects his opponent enough to offer a compromise is Vulture, in fact
Parker’s superpowers made Vulture very happy, and his daughter, Liz, enjoyed the relationship. The bad guy enjoyed knowing that Parker was taking good care of his daughter
Parker was attempting to prosecute criminals on his own behalf
Therefore, he voluntarily gave up his dating life in order to catch the bad guy
Why Spider-Man: Homecoming succeeds is due to its Shakespearean elements
The protagonist must make a decision that will have devastating effects on all the families as they become more connected
This story is successful because Vulture adds the necessary element of plausibility to prevent the whole thing from reading like a subpar Riverdale episode
Killmonger. The best MCU movie villain to date, absent Thanos and Loki, would likely be Killmonger, in my opinion. This character is perfect in every way
First of all, he is correct. He should be resentful of having witnessed his father being taken from him as a child
Killmonger is also risky. It’s unsettling to think that all those scars on his body represent war fatalities. Superheroes are not allowed to kill in the MCU. On the other hand, this supervillain doesn’t just do that
He murders a lot and does it with pride. That is horrifyingly perverse
Killmonger is family, just like in a number of the other stories presented here
He is the cousin of the current King of Wakanda and an estranged prince
In other words, the character has all the necessary components to become a classic supervillain. Everything is also made better by the fact that Killmonger is on par with Black Panther in combat. Moreover, Michael B. Jordan practices his performance to the nth degree
