Did Hawkeye Episode 4 Hint That This Major Character Is Actually Mockingbird?

The Disney+ series "Hawkeye" has given fans a lot to chew on regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but episode four might have revealed the secret identity of a classic Marvel hero. In "Partners, Am I Right?," Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) goes out of his way to retrieve a Rolex watch stolen from the wreckage of the Avengers compound. The secrecy surrounding the watch and its owner could reveal something about the superhero known as Mockingbird to the MCU. While she previously ex...

How Spider-Man: No Way Home Pays Homage To The Sam Raimi Movies

The following information may or may not come as a surprise to some, but superhero movies were around and even thrived long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe arrived on the scene. The MCU has done much to bring the once-niche appeal of superheroes out into the mainstream, but in many ways it was merely standing on the shoulders of many, many films that came before and did all the hard work. One could say that Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" movies ran so the MCU could end up circling back to where i...

How Hawkeye Finally Addresses The Darker Side Of Being A Superhero

"People don't want that cynical 'cool' thing anymore, they want sincerity. Not self-seriousness, but heart-on-your-sleeve sincerity."About midway through the second episode of "Hawkeye," titled "Hide and Seek," Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) are strolling through the streets of New York City and end up holding an impromptu debate that feels much bigger than a mere difference in opinion. On a surface level, the scene is ostensibly about Kate calling out Hawkeye's ...

Why That Major Hawkeye Episode 4 Cameo Is So Significant

(WARNING: Major spoilers for the fourth episode of "Hawkeye," obvs!)Although the reveal should not have come as much of a shock considering her casting was announced in the trades over a year ago, today's fourth episode of Marvel Studios' "Hawkeye" brought back everyone's favorite ex-Black Widow Yelena Belova, as played by the always amazing Florence Pugh ("Midsommar," "Little Women"). Titled "Partners, Am I Right?" this new installment of the Disney+ streaming series finds Clint Barton (Jeremy ...

The Essential Marvel Movies You Must Rewatch Before Spider-Man: No Way Home

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" feels like it's been a long time coming, at least by Marvel Cinematic Universe standards. The end of 2019's "Far From Home" left audiences with one heck of a cliffhanger, setting the stage for Tom Holland's biggest cinematic adventure as the beloved superhero to date. This movie has a whole lot going for it, with Doctor Strange along for the ride, the Marvel multiverse cracking wide open, and whatever surprises are in store we don't even know about yet.As such, it might...

Here's The Latest Round Of Kevin Feige Giving Perfect Non-Answers To Pressing Marvel Questions

There are few people better at giving non-answers about upcoming projects than Marvel President Kevin Feige. (One standout is Dave Filoni, who's non-answers are so fun and lovely that, once I hear them, I no longer care what we were talking about to begin with.) Feige is a master of giving us all just enough hints without spoiling anything. As you may have read, Feige recently sort of suggested that Netflix Marvel star Charlie Cox could appear in the MCU. It would make sense, of course. Bring hi...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Composer Talks The Lack Of Spirit In Many Modern Blockbuster Scores [Exclusive]

"Ghostbusters: Afterlife" is yet another legacy sequel that has fans up in arms against each other. Some film fans took issue with nostalgia being front and center in the new film and some loved the movie even more because of it. One thing that most "Ghostbusters" fans can agree on, though, is that Rob Simonsen's score is right on the money.For whatever reason, the same folks that rolled their eyes at Stay Puft Marshmallow Man advertising seen in the movie seemed to love Simonsen's score, which ...

Kevin Feige Confirms Charlie Cox Is The MCU's Daredevil

It's hard to deny that a lot of the actors who play our favorite Marvel superheroes are just synonymous with their characters at this point. Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson. Who else would play those roles? In the same way, actor Charlie Cox has also become known for his turn as Matt Murdock, AKA the tortured, strong, and religiously inclined Hell's Kitchen hero known as Daredevil — and though Cox has yet to show up in the MCU, it appears Marvel boss Kevin Feige is interested ...

Encanto, Ghostbusters, Eternals Cross Minor Milestones In Quiet Weekend At The Box Office

Well, that was one of the most uneventful weekends at the box office in some time. Unless you were someone who was particularly excited to see "Christmas With the Chosen: The Messengers," which cracked the top five with $4.1 million this weekend, it was pretty quiet, serving as something of a calm before the end-of-the-year storm. Even so, "Encanto," "Ghostbusters: Afterlife," and "Eternals" passed minor milestones over the past few days. Let's dig in. Eternals And Ghostbusters: Afterlife Lead T...

He was then given his own Netflix series that ran for two seasons.

Given that we are getting an entire TV show about her, she is going to be an important character within the confines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from her on out.

Alternate Blade Ending Would've Featured A Major Spider-Man Villain

It's difficult to remember a time when the box office wasn't dominated by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but when "Blade" hit theaters in 1998, it was a huge gamble. Just the second major movie inspired by a Marvel Comics character (following "Howard the Duck" in 1986, which wasn't exactly a hit), the film starred Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire hunter. The movie, which has retained a passionate following over the decades, was successful enough to spawn two sequels and a short-lived TV show...
