Sure, whatever, I guess

Okay, it’s true that my track record on judging movies based on their teaser trailers isn’t great. But … if there wasn’t a Marvel Studios logo on this one it wouldn’t have made any impact on me at all, and right now I feel like seeing it is a chore I have to endure rather than something I actually want to do. I can’t tell you a single thing about a single one of these characters, I don’t know who any of them are, and with the single exception of Darkseid I really don’t have any affection for any of Jack Kirby’s characters when he was trying to Go Mythical. The New Gods bore the shit out of me too, frankly.

I think Black Widow comes out soon? Perhaps shockingly soon? Truth be told I don’t care much about that either, nor about the new Loki show that I think is debuting pretty soon. I liked things about both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but ultimately both of them left me cold.

It really is amazing how thoroughly Endgame killed my interest in the MCU, and one of these days I’m going to write a post about why, and it’s going to be 20,000 words long, so I probably ought to do my level best to avoid doing it.


One more day. One more day. One more day. One more day.

I can do this.

  1. The Loki show looks batshit, and I think I’m going to enjoy it. I’ll see Black Widow but my expectations are low. I don’t know what this Eternals thing is.

    Also, apropos of nothing except maybe the MCU in general:

    I AM SO TIRED OF SPIDERMAN MOVIES.

    Thank you.

  2. I was done with the MCU after Endgame too, then came The Year Of Covid, and when WandaVision came around, it was so out there that I felt excited by the whole prospect again.
    TFatWS, although entertaining, dropped the ball too many times to hold my interest. I have moderately high hopes for Loki … and as for that that abysmal trailer for the Eternals? I’m disappointed, even it it is a throwaway teaser trailer.
    We shall see. 🙂
