Comics Wrap-Up - A Loaded God Complex


'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols

It's May, it's Thursday, let's get us some superhero-y, comics-y goodness!

TV Trailers

There's a new Loki trailer! Woo!

Maybe it's just me - maybe I'm on high alert after the effing Queerbaiting in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) - but Agent Mobius seems kinda flirty? With Loki?

And like, there have been suggestions that this series will bring MCU (movies) Loki more in line with comics Loki (who is all sorts of Queer,) in terms of having a male love interest.

...Trying not to get my hopes up here. Because Marvel is notoriously bad at this.

Maybe it's just that Owen Wilson couldn't resist flirting with Tom Hiddleston - and honestly, who could blame him?

(Also, I'm loving the snark here, but that's kinda a given)

(Warning: very mild flashing images, references to murder)

As I was writing this post another trailer dropped, and I would like to thank Tom Hiddleston for his services to humanity 😘😅😉:

(Warning: flashing images, brief semi-nudity (thank you TH!), violence)

dividing line

And we have another trailer for Netflix/DC's Sweet Tooth (which is still getting FOB's Sugar We're Goin Down* stuck in my head - because music vid.)

I feel like this show is going to lean heavily on a combo of environmental and anti-prejudice messaging, and I'm here for it!

Film Trailers

We have another trailer/film-clip-thing for Black Widow.

And it's... fine. There's nothing wrong with it. It's a perfectly adequate and functional action sequence.

It's a perfectly adequate action sequence that could be from literally any action film, ever, that's all.

Like... why is this marketing material Marvel? There's nothing wrong with it, but it tells me precisely nothing about this film over any other action film. 

What are we doing here, Disney? What are we doing here?

(Warning: flashing images, violence including gun violence)

Other Stuff

Last week's Friday Fics Fix talked Zemo needing to get intel from someone in a Gay bar, and taking Sam and Bucky with him, because I am TFATWS trash. 

It turned out to be a deeper fic than it seemed at first, and is well worth the look!

Thoughts on Loki? Could Mobius be a potential love interest?

What did you make of the Black Widow trailer/clip?

  1. Think of the power the Loki tv series would have if they finally gave him a queer storyline. Just think of it, Disney!

  2. Okay so I watched the Mobius clip, and... they're doing the TVA? Woot! And yes I love this clip. Do it Disney!!! :)

    1. Yes, they are indeed doing the TVA! :) I'm not that familiar with that corner of Marvel, tbh, but I hope it meets your expectations!
