PiercingMetal Thoughts: I am 100% Team Marvel when it comes to this stuff and I am too excited for words about these upcoming projects. I’m a subscriber to Disney+ and have been for some weeks now since I wanted to catch “The Mandalorian” and I can hardly wait for the Marvel Studios original series to begin running. I’m not going to point out which ones I am the most excited for but I will say that I like how they are all going to expand upon the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe. Our friends over at DC should have tried to do the same with a little more earnest and we would have had something exceptional by now. Still, they do have the sequel for “Wonder Woman” coming out in the next few weeks and while the trailers didn’t sell me as much as the first film did the hopes are high that it continues her story in a positive fashion. So I will close this up now and say to all of our Pop Culture fanatics how I will be doing posts about every single trailer and teaser and release that we get from Marvel so if you like this stuff you are in for a treat and if you don’t – Well, get used to it 🙂 See you next time, I hope all of you are keeping safe out there during this precarious time.
