Hey friends! Welcome to this weeks The Weekly Bugle Vol 2. We have a lot to discuss including the premiere of Baby Yoda Season 2… I mean The Mandalorian Season 2, Helstrom, Ant-Man 3, and more!
The Weekly Bugle Vol 2
Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Season 2 Episode One The Marshal or Helstrom.
The Mandalorian Season 2 The Marshal
There were a lot of Easter eggs hiding in this episode and it ends with a pretty big surprise–Boba Fett! Earlier in the episode we see Cobb Vanth wearing Boba Fett’s armor which had fans anticipating some information on the original Star Wars Mandalorian.
We didn’t have to wait long. At the very end of the episode, a man is seen watching from a sand dune. It is revealed to be Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in Star Wars Attack of the Clones. He has also voiced Boba Fett in the past. Boba is a clone of Jango… Boba survived the Sarlacc Pit.
One of our second favorite Easter Eggs was actually a pearl, a Krayt Dragon pearl to be exact. Not only are the pearls highly valuable some can also contain Kyber Crystals, which as you know are needed to power lightsabers.

And as always, Baby Yoda is as cute as ever. Sorry Baby Groot, but we would use you for a toothpick if it meant saving Baby Yoda’s life.
Helstrom, a Marvel TV show on Hulu, is about Daimon and Ana Helstrom, two half-demon half-human reluctant superheroes who are trying to save the world from their father and his kind. Their father isn’t your run-of-the-mill demon either, he just so happens to be Satan himself.
The show has quickly become a favorite of ours with its witty dialogue and great action scenes. It’s the kind of rare show that gets the point without sacrificing plot points or character development. It is dark and rated MA so definitely not one for the kids.
Speaking of dark, we’ve been called cold-blooded for our assessment of how a certain thing was treated in the show, but hey, it’s a demon, and you gotta do what you gotta do.
With Daimon’s comic book ties to Ghost Rider, Blade, The Winter Soldier, and more, we are hoping Ana and Daimon come to the MCU and bring their fiery personalities (pun intended) with them.
Speaking of Ghost Rider, talks have resumed in the fandom world about who should play him. Some say Nicolas Cage, others Gabriel Luna who played him in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, and then there is Keanu Reeves.
Whether it is Ghost Rider or Deacon Frost, or someone else yet to be named, we hope to see Keanu join the MCU.
According to the official Marvel website, Scott Lang’s stint in the Quantum Realm is a story for another time. This could mean a flashback scene either at the beginning of Ant-Man 3, or as a post-credit in Black Widow, The Multiverse of Madness, or some other upcoming Marvel Phase 4 offering.
With Kang the Conqueror being the baddie for this one and time travel his thing, this could be how they show Kang has been lurking in the QR for a while now, just waiting to strike.
In other fandom news, James Gunn in a recent interview said that a Superman movie was on the table before he went with Suicide Squad. We don’t know about you but Henry deserves his own movie or the be released to come to the MCU.
He even shared that Kevin Feige knows who the villain is for Suicide Squad. We know that man can keep a secret!
Also, Amy Adams’ Lois Lane joins the Natalie Portman Jane Foster list for us.

The 90s Are Coming
It’s been a week of 90s news. From Animaniacs and Tiny Toons, to The Power Rangers and Saved By The Bell, a lot of our favorites are coming back to TV.
TBH we only care about Saved By The Bell because they have the original cast- smart move! We also can’t even say the word Animaniacs without singing the theme song.
Maybe the 90s will save us from 2020?
Or maybe the 90s can at least save us from this mess.
Songbird is a big fat N-O. No. Negative. Nope. Michael Bay needs to read the room, nay the universe. No one, I repeat NO ONE wants a flipping film about dealing with Covid. NO. ONE.
