“Spiderous-Man: First Day Back”& “Space Saga Side Story: Rebel Girl And Her Crew”
A new “Spider-Man: Homecoming” trailer came out last week and it was pretty cool I guess. Although, all the best part of it are “Iron Man”. In fact I’d MUCH rather see another “Iron Man” where mentoring “Spider-Man” is a subplot. There’s a whole article about how the “Marvel” movies need “Spider-Man” at CBR.com (which is here https://goo.gl/fkZVbm ) and I couldn’t disagree more. Don’t get me wrong it was nice to see “Spider-Man” in “Civil War” and it worked. But need is a strong word. No the “Marvel” movies NEED the “X-men” because without them they’re forced to use “Inhumans” and “Inhumans” suck. Without “X-men” the “MCU” has no good allegory for minorities because again “Inhumans” just don’t work as well.
On to “Rogue One”. Gotta say not hyped at all. I got my doubts about this one. For one thing I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t think “Star Wars” films work without “Han Solo”, and by “Han Solo” I mean “Harrison Ford”. Watch the original trilogy again and try to imagine it without him. I think you’ll find a MUCH less interesting set of movies. Second it’s a prequel (a side story prequel at that) and sure it’s almost impossible it won’t be better than “Episodes I-III” but that still doesn’t mean it’ll be good. That being said of course I’ll almost certainly see it Saturday…
Tomorrow these guys return to talk some more about “Space Saga”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
