Before I get started I have to say that realistically I know he won’t be cast as Poseidon but I can dream, can’t I?! Ok now back to my musings.
First, I just straight up believe that he would be a good choice. He’s a great actor and he has that nice scruffy look now that would be great for Poseidon. Like are you really going to try and say that this man wouldn’t make a perfect Poseidon? I will die on that hill!
Also, he played a great dead body in Bullet Train so how much harder would it be to play a deadbeat dad?
My second reason is of course connected to nostalgia but it’s more complicated than that. I think a lot of people would agree with me that Logan as Percy was probably the one good thing that came from those movies (and if not then I guess I’m the weird one then). While the rest of it was pretty shitty he was the bright light in the darkness, so I think casting him would be a good way to I guess honor that in a way. Or I think that it would at least would be a nice way to acknowledge that the movies were a thing. Sure a bad thing but they still deserve some acknowledgment in my eyes (I might be the odd man out in that sense). I also think about the fact that his name is always going to be connected to Percy Jackson so why don’t they make that connection a good one instead of a negative one. It would especially feel like a nice nod to older PJO fans like me, that first learned of the series because of the first movie, by giving the casting an almost redemption arc-like feel.
So, those are my opinions about Poseidon’s casting and I really hope I’m not the only one who thinks this.
I loved She-Hulk and it’s definitely my 2nd favorite MCU show so far, just behind Moon Knight. It had me laughing every episode followed by excitement for the next episode. Which truthfully not many of the other shows have left me that desire for next weeks episode to come faster. I think the best part of the show was that it didn’t take itself too seriously, it was just plain fun. Honestly, I feel like She-Hulk succeed where Thor Love and Thunder fell short. It had that fun sitcom feel but when it did have those few moments of seriousness they stuck and actually felt like they had an impact. Of course, I have to mention my love of all the cameos(especially one blind lawyer) and the 4th wall breaks. Every single 4th wall break and cameo was amazing and I am shocked about how much this show makes me want Matt and Jen to be end game! I was not expecting that!
On the other hand I know a lot of people hated this show and shat on every little detail but I truly do not understand where their hate is coming from. Now, I will admit there were maybe twoish times in the entire show where the CGI was lacking but it was only for a minute and I quickly moved on. I just don’t understand why some people are so harsh on a show that was just having fun and letting loose. And so I give the show a 9 out of 10.
As a lover of werewolves and all things supernatural, I was very excited for Werewolf by Night. And let me just say I was not disappointed. I was a little worried a first because I’m not the biggest fan of black-and-white movies but it fit really well with the whole feel of the movie. I’ve seen a lot of people saying that it has that classic monster movie feel and I totally agree. While I really enjoyed the action, my favorite part was Jack and Ted’s relationship!! They were the cutest best friends ever, and I can not wait to see more of them together.
Now, sadly for my 2 complaints. Number 1… I wish it was longer!!!! That’s not really a complaint I just really wish that I had more because it was a super fun movie. But now time for my real complaint, the werewolf. First, I feel like I need to explain that I’m very picky with what my favorite type of werewolf looks like so that’s why I had a small problem with Werewolf by Night. Basically, I like my werewolves to be more wolfie, you know…longer snout, tail, the works. So, I’m not a huge fan of the more hairy human werewolf but I usually learn to love it when the characters and story are good enough. Which this one is! So, all in all I give Werewolf by Night a solid 9 out of 10 and I can’t wait to see where else the supernatural side of the MCU is going!
I don’t think it needs to be said but obviously this show has great acting, plot, special effects etc. which is to be expected for anything in the MCU. Now that that is out of the way I can get into the deeper stuff. This show, so far, is strange, weird, and definitely unique and honestly I have no idea yet if I actually like it or not. But I know for a definite fact that I am all in! I need to know what’s going on! Obviously I went in knowing things were going to be confusing from the trailers but I didn’t really “know know”, you know? So, now I have a new show to wait for every week!
Since I’m a huge nerd as you might have guessed I have already come up with some theories that I just want to put out there. I going to start this by saying yes I’m a huge MCU fan and I know I can easily look up info on specifics to confirm stuff but I don’t want to spoil things for my self.
First thing that is obvious is that nothings real but my 2 theories on that is that it’s either in Wanda’s head or Vision’s. But because Vision was just a little dead last time we saw him I’m more inclined to say Wanda’s but if it is Vision’s I’m guessing it’s something like Altered Carbon(another show I love) where a copy of his mind was stored somewhere before the unfortunate Thanos incident.
Second thing is S.W.O.R.D. is a thing. Now this is where my knowledge is lacking because I haven’t read the comics but I don’t want to look it up to confirm things right now. What I do know from the internet and a book I have is that S.W.O.R.D. is a thing. I know that it’s connected to S.H.I.E.L.D. but I don’t know if it’s better or worse then S.H.I.E.L.D. that I will leave up to the show to tell me. But I do have two theories about S.W.O.R.D.. One is that they’re the good guys and are trying to wake Wanda up from some crazy coma some yet unknown bad guy put her in for some nefarious reason or they are said bad guy and someone yet unknown is trying to save her from S.W.O.R.D..
And so the only way to find out is to keep watching while I also wait for any more easter eggs or connections to the rest of the MCU. Specifically any mentions of Stark because I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed my Tony fix and I will never admit to my self that he is truly gone. But anyways back on topic I will definitely keep watching!
