The next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to include, as of this writing, 7 TV series on Disney+ in addition to the six currently announced films. The “Cinematic Universe” is officially more of a “mixed media universe.” Remember when part of the appeal of the films was that they made the impenetrable web of comic book continuity accessible again to new fans? That feels like it’s nearly over.
Anyway, the first of the Disney+ series to hit the service is going to be WandaVision, in which Scarlet Witch seems to be living out a 50s TV fantasy life with Vision. Only one issue: Vision is dead. So what is going on? Let’s take a look!

The first Ant-Man is a good film. Immediately following Avengers: Age of Ultron is was light, funny, full of great performances, and had refreshingly small, personal stakes. Ant-Man & The Wasp continues these traditions: it’s a light, funny movie with some great performances, smaller, more personal stakes, and it immediately followed Avengers: Infinity War which had literal end-of-the-entire-universe stakes. Is this new entry in the Marvel experiment good though? Yes, yes it is! Is it better than the last one? Well… maybe?

I really miss the sci-fi movies of my childhood. Big, colourful, often funny, always exhilarating; so much fuel for imaginary spaceship battles around my bedroom. I’m sure much of this comes from older eyes and wearier brains, but I find sci-fi these days to be too bland, too unwilling to risk shapes and ideas. The resurgence of Star Wars has taken big steps back to the fantasy side of sci-fi, and Guardians Of The Galaxy got close with its amazing ship design and snappy script, but I often felt myself seeking more of the fun.
Well, not any more. We’ve known for a while that Thor Ragnarok would be colourful and funny – director Taika Waititi’s What We Do In The Shadows is one of my all-time favourite comedies – but what I was not prepared for was Ragnarok having so much more. Far from being all-out comedy, it’s a meaty, gorgeous slice of sci-fi bliss.
