Going forward, Sundays are lazy days for me. I either post something silly or other people’s work. Usually both. Today, it’s a few MCU memes that hit my social media streams this week. Two you’ve almost certainly seen. One is pretty new. They all surround last week’s ComicBook.com quarantine watch party of Thor (which was awesome), which was in preparation for the following day’s premiere of Loki on Disney Plus (which was awesome).
I’ve been getting crushed at work recently. Today is the first weekday I’ve gotten to the gym since Wednesday of last week, and it’s also the first day since Monday of last week that I didn’t stay a couple extra hours. So with no time even to think of something to write, let alone actually put it to digital ink, here’s a silly meme for you.
We were all disappointed to hear James Gunn insist that Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 would be his last entry in the MCU series. As long as he includes Strawberry Letter #23 in soundtrack, I won’t hold it against him. However, we all wanted to understand why he made this decision. Well, I have breaking news for you. It turns out that he’ll be working on a spin off for Marvel Studios.
Going forward, Sundays are lazy days for me. I either post something silly or other people’s work. Usually both. Today, I acknowledge a startling revelation.
I know what you’ll be thinking after some quick googling: “But he’s currently 24 years old.” Well, if the average spider lifespan of a spider is 22 years, then Tom is currently at 1.09090909% of his expected lifespan. The average British male lives to be 79.4 years old (from 2016 to 2018). What do you think when you learn about a Brit that’s over 86 years old? Q.E.D.
Today’s the premier of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness! Who’s coming with me tonight?
Wait, what? What pandemic?
Today was supposed to be the day the Dr. Strange sequel was to be released. Despite my concerns, I’m a big fan of the original (and the superhero cinematic genre in general), so I was looking forward to it. Unfortunately, as of this writing, we have another 10 months to go. If I’m cursed with this knowledge, I just wanted to make sure you guys were as well. I hope it’s worth the wait.
Not that this is a surprise at all, but clearly Star Trek exists in the MCU as a TV show and, most likely, movie intellectual property. So, for this fake Star Wars week, I link to a Reddit post with a couple of cels from a comic (which I don’t read) giving an example of this. I link because I don’t want to infringe copyright.
So what about some substantive content? Ok, I’ll come up with something.
Did Star Trek have an in-comic crossover with Marvel? Or was that DC or some indie comic company? If so, shouldn’t these references throw the Marvel universe into complete chaos? If so, would any of the characters even notice? It’s already pretty chaotic in there.
That’s all I’ve got. I’m really posting it because it’s new to me, and I found it funny. And relatable. I’m Dr. Doom in that cel.
These are my favorite two intellectual properties, so why not?
