Elvis is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 24, 2022, by Warner Bros. Pictures.

I’m feeling fairly competent that this one is going to be an absolute banger of a film. Tom Hanks doesn’t sign up for crappy scripts.

Now my love for Elvis runs deep. The King has long held a place in my heart since my Granny was bopping to it all the time growing up. And this really looks pretty great. Elvis’ music was absolutely revolutionary and the musical biopic has been pretty popular as of late, If Tom Hanks is attached I’m all in.

This movie comes to me personally at a great time because I have been actually recycling a lot of my Elvis favorites into my daily music shuffles. This all came about because my 3 month olds favorite song is “Suspicious Minds”, yes the song about potential adultery… I don’t know what it is but it works like a soothing lullaby and my baby is knocked. Any, yeah this all is coming at a great time for me personally I just really hope everyone else can out to the theatre for it. Because the musical biopic has got to be one of my favorite genres in film there is. What’s not to love, all the drama and writing of great filmmakers while also playing some of the most iconic and popular music in American or human history.

The King is the King and I think this film is more than long overdue. Elvis absolutely revolutionized American culture, really bringing popular music to a new and far, far more exciting age. The absolute garbage that could pass for a popular hit prior to that…. I mean come on… Elvis was perceived as the coolest thing to happen to music, well ever. I say perceived, because in fact it was Chuck Berry who invented Rock and Roll music. I mean that is an undeniable credit to have. Giving birth to a musical genre… that’s impressive.

I know this one kind of spiraled, but whatever… I’m excited for this movie and you should be too. ALL HAIL THE KING!!!

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.”

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.
