The Bad Batch Premiere Breakdown

Being a spiritual successor of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch starts off in typical Clone Wars fashion. A narrator brings everyone up to speed on the latest happenings in the galaxy. Then it’s time for our Batch to do what they do best.

After they save the day the galaxy descends into chaos when Order 66 is enacted. All the clones around them proceed to react and eliminate the Jedi master in their midst. They also attempt to kill a young Padawan who Star Wars Rebels fans might just recognize.

Hunter and most of the Batch are confused by this new order and what life in the empire will mean for them. Crosshair however is more on the order following side and disagrees with Hunter’s methods.

They meet a new clone named Omega who reveals Kamino is no longer safe for her or the Batch. After a daring escape, the crew sets course for a planet to visit an old friend. Unfortunately, one of their own has turned on them. The fact that he is now working steadfastly for the empire will make for some epic drama down the road.

Bad Batch Episode 2 Breakdown

The Bad Batch Episode 2 Breakdown

The Clone Wars intro is gone. Now the boys are fugitives from the empire and are responsible for a young clone – Omega. Clone Force 99 has made it to J-19 but unfortunately so has the empire.

They meet up with an old friend, someone you may recognize if you watched The Clone Wars. Cut also drops a hint that Rex has come and gone recently. Since Rex appeared briefly in the trailer, it is safe to say we may see him really soon.

With the increased presence of the empire, Cut and his family needs passage off the planet but the only way to do so is with chain codes. Unfortunately, he can’t get one since he is technically a deserter. That’s not an issue for the Bad Batch. Tech comes up with a great plan. But things never go as planned for our clones and they must fight their way out.

Watch the Marvel Sizzle Reel

And speaking of Marvel. Set photos revealed a first look at Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, and Echo. We are loving how the Phase 4 suits are on point! Comic book fans rejoice.

If you are unfamiliar with Echo, she is a superheroine who is skilled in martial arts, acrobatics, and has photographic reflexes. She is also one of the few Marvel characters who is deaf. In the comics, she has ties to Moon Knight, Daredevil, Secret Invasion, and more. She at one time used the mantle of Ronin (which Hawkeye was using in Avengers Endgame). She eventually passed that to Hawkeye.

What do you think of all the announcements? Let us know!

Alfred Molina In Spider-Man No Way Home

We joke about Spider-Man 3 news constantly. Oh look someone else is confirmed. Isn’t everyone in this movie at this point? Welcome back Happy! In Spider-Man news this week Alfred Molina spills the tea on Doc Ock’s return in No Way Home.

He even calls himself the worst kept secret on the internet, and he isn’t wrong. Maybe that is why Marvel decided it was okay to let him do this interview with Variety. His character’s story will pick up where it left off, you know with his death. But like Molina says, it’s Marvel, no one is ever really dead.

Shang-Chi Teaser Trailer and Poster

Happy Birthday to Simu (and a belated one to Ashley)! Marvel Studios not only dropped the new poster for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings but also a trailer. In it, we see the real Mandarin, the Ten Rings, Death Dealer, Shang-Chi in action, and more.

We are so hyped for this movie and what it means for the future of the MCU. And the possibility that it could tie in with Falcon and The Winter Soldier is something we haven’t let go of yet.

Lord of The Rings

Filming has been underway for Lord of the Rings season one on Amazon but what is shocking is the price tag. We hope you are sitting down for this. The cost for season one ALONE is $465 million. MILLION.

Game of Thrones didn’t even cost that much. Did they buy Middle Earth?

Avengers Assemble

Disneyland in California isn’t the only park to get the Avengers treatment. Disneyland Paris just revealed a look at their Avengers Campus. This will complement the Hotel New York, which already features Marvel artwork but is being upgraded for the Avengers Campus reveal.

Who is ready for a trip to France?
