I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I took some much needed time off to just relax and ended up running through ALL of the Black Widow-related MCU movies from start to finish. But wait, let me back up and start from the beginning.
This year for our anniversary the hubster and I went to see Black Widow in the theater. This was our first time back in the theater together since the Pandy and while I’m glad I was able to see the movie on the big screen, I don’t see myself rushing back to the theaters on a weekly basis.
The main reasons for the way I am feeling about my local theater are: (1) I don’t feel comfortable being in the theater with so many other people who seem determined to press into my personal space; (2) my local theater doesn’t seem all that enthusiastic to welcome me back. I showed up for opening weekend of a Marvel movie and the staff barely paused to acknowledge our existence as we checked in. There were no special displays, no raffles no fanfare. It was depressing. The seat I reserved was broken. The audio mix was off and the sound was funky the whole time. I hate that this was my welcome back to the theater. It also made me miss Alamo Drafthouse in Texas. (Y’all wanna come set up some theaters in Arkansas? So serious.)
Still, seeing Black Widow just before the finale of Loki put me in a Marvelous mood. So naturally I had to go back and watch everything from start to finish. Then I also had a conversation with a good friend and realized that I need to pull a new list together for some of the folks who are honestly lost right now as we prepare for What If.
For those of you who have not watched Loki on Disney+ this is your SPOILER ALERT. Go watch it and then come back and join in on the fun.
For those who are caught up on Loki Season 1, join me back here on Monday and allow me to help y’all prepare for the glorious purpose we are about to witness in the Age of the Kang Dynasty with the first installment of…
