Monday Musings: Black Widow Solo Film and Avengers: Infinity War

monday musings

With Avengers: Infinity War coming out this week, there’s a ton of content making the rounds. There’s also some news on a Black Widow solo film. Hope you enjoy this Avengers-filled Monday Musings.

EXCLUSIVE: Details on Marvel Studios ‘Black Widow’ Solo Film

Late last year, I was told that this film would take place in the past; today, that was confirmed by a second source. The film will find Natasha living in the United States 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union! That timeline places the film firmly in the mid-2000s, meaning we’ll meet up with Nat prior to the events of Iron Man 2.

I was talking about this recently on one of my podcasts. I’m all for a Black Widow story set in the past. Marvel is doing it with the upcoming Captain Marvel, so I have no doubt that they’d consider more stories set in the past.

A Full Breakdown of Who’s Going to Die in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Clint Barton has been noticeably absent in promotional material for Infinity War, which adds fuel to the theory that his character may not be long for this world. Truth is, Hawkeye is another fan favorite whose death would hurt but wouldn’t put much of a dent in the future of the MCU. The addition of a family and personal background for Clint in Age of Ultron also seems ominous; there’s nothing like sudden emotional stakes to signal an imminent death.

If Hawkeye does appear in Infinity War, I don’t see how he makes it out of this one. He’s a character who had a chance to die in Age of Ultron, but they sacrificed Pietro instead. Even he thinks it’s funny that he’s just a guy with a bow and arrow when all of these crazy things keep happening. Hawkeye talk aside, this is a fun read that takes the contracts into consideration when looking at who could die in Infinity War. 

I’m looking forward to the film, but not who dies. We’ve spent ten years with some of these characters and it’s been a wild run for Marvel. But if we do in fact get that Black Widow film, I’ll be quite happy with that.

Monday Musings: Celebration Rock, Carrie Coon joins Infinity War

monday musings

Monday Musings is back this week. I only have a couple things for now. Celebration Rock hit it’s 100th episode and Carrie Coon was added to the cast of Avengers: Infinity War. Check them out!

Celebration Rock’s 100th episode

Steven Hyden had Rob Sheffield join him for the 100th episode of Celebration Rock. As always, it’s a fun conversation between the two. If you’re looking for a good music podcast to check out this week, look no further.

Carrie Coon joins the cast of Avengers: Infinity War

Carrie Coon will play Proxima Midnight in Avengers: Infinity War, directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed in an interview with Radio Times.

The character is a member of the Black Order, a group of ruthless aliens that serve Thanos in his villainous quest. She is arguably the most deadly of her group, and was created by comic book writer Jonathan Hickman and debuted along with her colleagues in 2013’s New Avengers No. 8 during the “Infinity Stone” storyline.

Carrie Coon was fantastic in The Leftovers and season three of Fargo. I’m looking forward to seeing her in the MCU, especially as a villain. Marvel is going bigger than they’ve ever gone with Infinity War and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.
