Peacemaker finale “Cow or Never” blog and what’s next for P.M following that AMAZING FINALE

Spoilers ahead in case any of you haven’t watched the season finale of one of the funnest shows I can remember. Honestly this show blew me away from episode 1. So I just wanted to write this blog discussing my thoughts on season 1 now that I have finished the season finale.

1st things 1st James Gunn is a freaking genius. He has to be the most fun director in the game. Just look at his movies. Bananas visuals that almost always seem driven by the music of his films. I love how in each of James Gunn’s films, the soundtrack is practically a cast member. A brilliant director that has earned every inch of his long leash when directing movies, and can get away with anything he wants to do. Don’t believe me… just ask James

“Yeah, they kind of let me do whatever I want,” Gunn told Rolling Stone yesterday during a phone interview from the set of the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

I would say this is apparent in the finale. Very apparent. He had a Godzilla sized caterpillar getting milked, yes… milked, while a cave is falling around it. And it works so good it’s crazy.

Going into the show I didn’t feel like their would be much depth to Peacemaker. I should have learned not to doubt a director that has made me weep over the loss of a tree in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1. He is incredible at giving just the right amount of personality to the strange and alien so that these creatures motivations and feelings can be understood. He did that with Groot and Rocket, and now he did it with butterflies, when you see their personality, whether through the description of their homeworld’s struggle or just the mannerism of the actual butterflies.

This episode’s fight scenes are second to none. So great, but following the best fight I’ve seen in the show, and arguably one of my favorite “super hero” genre fights.

In this episode we see why they had to leave their planet and why they are invading Earth, to apparently save it. By infiltrating the highest in government the Butterflies planned to help save Earth, and bring PEACE. To which Peacemaker quickly pops them both and human torpedoed (yes, its exactly what it sounds like) Adebayo into the caterpillar kaiju. Such an awesome and small way to show such a large change in John Cena’s character. It is this moment that we see him finally put the care of those he cherishes over worldwide peace.

Are we sure Adrian Chase isn’t like a metahuman or something? This resilient SOB also has just god-like weapon skills. I mean he no look flicked a knife into a butterfly’s face after having been shot in the back! That was incredible. I love him consistently walking into frame after a big battle wraps up, “Hey guys what’s up?” Everytime. Gets me everything. The charachter is so awesome. Whenever the show will kill him, because no HBO show has not killed my favorite tertiary charachter of that show. So I’m preparing myself to lose him eventually but I love this character. He honestly became like top 5 favorite DC movie charachters. And no, I’m not counting the Nolan films. But as far as DCEU goes this guy is such a better comic relief than the current Flash has ever hinted at being.

Loved James Gunn’s use of the shield in this finale. He basically said, “Captain America ain’t got shit on this thing. And I mean Peacemaker was cutting fools in half with his before he shot it into a guys neck.

This was awesome. So great to see that they are crossing over. James Gunn needs to be given the keys to DC like Feige was at marvel. He needs to direct this universe going forward. I’m really hoping this is the case, and I’m hoping we see Peacemaker working with the Suicide Squad again or leading a team with Vigilante. Need that.

Moon Knight to be the “first legitimate Marvel character-study since Iron Man” per Oscar Isaac

“The idea of getting back to ‘handmade’ films, character studies… I was desperate for that feeling,” revealed Isaac on his decision to join the MCU exclusively to Empire Magazine. “It felt ‘handmade’…And it’s the first legitimate Marvel character-study since Iron Man.” “I thought, ‘Maybe I can hijack this thing,'” continued Isaac. “‘Maybe this is the chance to do something really…nutty on a major stage.’” Drawn to the complexities and turmoil his character experiences with dissociative identity disorder, Isaac shared, “What I love most about this thing is that it’s an exploration of a mind that doesn’t know itself. A human being that doesn’t know his own brain. I found that really moving: what the mind is capable of as far as survival. But the workload was massive: the technical challenge of embodying these different characters, physically, the way I manifest my body… It required a lot of energy.”

-Christine Dinh, marvel.com

Oh Hell yeah! This is all awesome to hear out of Oscaar Isaac prior to the release of Moon Knight next month. This show looks to offer something totally new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The introduction of the mystical was done by Dr. Strange, but I think Moon Knight will introduce the darker side of the mystical and cryptic. I had heard a rumor that the program streaming on Disney plus would be an introduction to the side of mystical that would be scarier, and more classical monsters, with Mark Spectre rumored to be taking down werewolves in this show.

The comments of Isaac regarding the character-study aspect, while they seem so pretentious I want to crawl out of my own skin, they do also get me excited for what Moon Knight will ultimately be. I love Oscar Isaac talking like, “this isn’t your normal Marvel movie, its ART!” Dude don’t blow smoke here, you got offered a bag and a half and you took it. Same thing you did for X-Men.

All that being said, the Iron Man comparison gets me very excited for what’s to come. When he says that Iron Man was a true character-study, I couldn’t agree more. When we see Tony Stark confronted by what his flippant nature has overlooked within his company. We saw him go through his heights, his lows, and then his redemption. We see his motivations at each point throughout the movie, and we see how those motivations can shift when confronted by the fruits of his selfish behavior. This ride was awesome over the course of a single movie. If this is a character study over the course of a season that allows us to dig much deeper into a character’s rationale and motivations. Which will be important considering our main character has dissociative identity disorder with 3 different identities vying for control. It will be an interesting study because we don’t know if we will even be seeing what the other 2 identities of Mark do while in control. If we only ever see 1/3 of what Mark’s physical body is up to, it will be cool to see how the motivations of the other 2 identities are expressed!

This is going to be great. The introduction of any new Marvel character is exciting. But the concepts and psychology of this hero will provide something new to build on. Much like any other Marvel character I fully expect to see him in future installments of the MCU. Marvel probably already has the roadmap laid for the next 15 years but I really hope the roadmap is laid out so we do see Moon Knight move from this series, into a role in the Blade movie, or into a Dark Avengers movie with him, Blade, and Black Knight.

Moon Knight looks to be another great addition to the MCU. I’m not only interested in seeing this character introduced but also new and dynamic concepts and ideas with the Egyptian mythology throughout. I’ll be for sure watching when it drops March 30, 2022.

Marvel “Doctor Strange and The Multiverse if Madness” trailer breakdown

Oh yeah Sam Raimi’s directing this. Totally forgot that little nugget. In case you didn’t know Sam Raimi is the revolutionary mind behind the Evil Dead series and the original Spider-man trilogy.

So let’s set the setting. Dr. Strange will have no idea that there are possible rifts in the multiverse because Peter Parker never existed(Oops spoilers for No Way Home) therefore Dr. Strange doesn’t remember ripping open the multiverse with him. Leaving Dr. Strange very vulnerable to any multiversal entities or dangers. But from the trailer it looks like Wanda will give into her darker side and the Scarlet Witch will be attempting to find her kids and possibly Vision within the multiverse.

A witch stealing your kids. That’s an old school scary story old as time right there.

We see Stephen Strange meet Evil Dr. Strange while we see possible events that occurred within the life of Dr. Strange’s variant across the multiverse (this concept has a whole series devoted to it. Go check out Loki on Disney+). It appears that America Chavez has arrived within the trailer. Her ability to navigate and travel the multiverse will make her crucial to this movie.

We then see various scenes and here someone say “we must tell him the truth” this voice being Sir Patrick Stewart the one and only mothaluvin Proffesor Charles Xavier. Leader of the X-men ya’ll!

Bringing in Patrick Stewart must just be a scene in which Dr. STRANGE is visiting an X-men 21ST Century Fox Universe

If Logan (Wolverine) remains dead in this universe then maybe this scene may lead to an introduction of new versions of iconic X-men as well as have some characters such as Deadpool hop on into the main Marvel Cinematic Universe. We all know Ryan Reynolds will be lassoed into a team up at some point. And I’m here for it. Even the idea of a Deadpool and Rocket Raccoon movie would be sweet. Just allow Rocket to break the 4th wall in Deadpool movies. You wont..

Throughout the trailer we see three main antagonists surface. Baron Mordo, Scarlet Witch, and Evil Dr. Strange.

I dont believe that this evil dr. Strange is the same exact one from the Marvel What If… series. It very well could be one of millions of Evil stranges just like Kang said in the Loki series.

With these three villains on full display throughout the trailer I have to imagine that the Nexus Event referenced in WandaVision, will take place. And introduce mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is going to be a course altering film in the MCU. Day 1 ticket for sure.
