A Random Fandom Update!
Since this topic of conversation came up, thought I might go over my musings on some upcoming films.
Enola Holmes: Saw the ad for this, coming to Netflix September 23rd. It looks exciting! The premise is Enola is the younger sister to the famous Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes. Her mother (not sure if it’s their mother as well) has gone missing and she’s called them in for help. Sherlock, played by Henry Cavill, seems nice. Mycroft looks like a prick who wants to turn their younger sister into a “proper young lady.” And I love that Enola is decidedly not. Looking forward to this!
Black Widow: I will admit, I was excited when this was first announced. Black Widow totally deserves her own film and Marvel did great with Captain Marvel. Then the trailer released and I finally read that it takes place between Civil War and Infinity War, which helps make sense. Yes, I totally want to see Black Widow’s origins and her kicking butt, however, the armor looks out of place. Black Widow wears sleek suits so she can slide between her opponents and she’s trained to avoid hits. And the “family” aspect…seems a bit out of place. Honestly, we want the movie that is Hawkeye and Black Widow in Budapest, teased in Avengers. Will I see it? Of course.
Mulan: I am not going to pay the higher premium to watch in on Disney+, I’ll wait till it’s properly released and you can rent it like normal. I get that Disney is taking the story back to its more original roots, but I feel like it’s going to lose that Disney touch. It’s not a musical, though they seem to be using the Reflections theme. And with the more serious tone, they’ve probably lost Mushu and he was half the fun! At some point I’ll watch it.
Wonder Woman 1984: Still excited about this one because I love the first one. Steve Trevor is back and I’d love to know how. The most recent trailer shows Diana’s adversary who transforms into a cat somehow? I will admit, I am not up on Wonder Woman lore, but it just makes me cock my head and go “huh.” The gold suit looks ridiculous, especially after how awesome they made her armor in the first film. Will still see, possibly in theatres.
No Time To Die: The twenty-fifth James Bond film and appears to pick up after Spectre. Bond has retired with Madeleine Swann, though they don’t appear to still be a couple in the trailer. Bond is called back to action. I mean, now that I’m caught up on the new Bond films, I definitely want to see this and see how things play out. I am currently enjoying a slew of James Bond/Sherlock crossover stories; some of the dialogue is absolutely hilarious.
Of course there is also the final seven episodes of Supernatural due out in October and November. I guarantee I will cry. I go back and forth on how I think they will end it. I believe Jensen Ackles has stated he would be willing to come back and do a movie; so they can’t fully kill the boys off, but then how else are you going to end the show? In case there isn’t a film? Pretty sure their destiny is to die, saving the world (as long as you make sure idiot Chuck goes first)
We shall eagerly wait and see how all these stories play out.
Bond film blogs will continue.
