One thing that is true and will forever be true: I love all things superhero! Like a lot. And the beginning of 2018 is about to have me on cloud 9804657826! Black Panther and Incredibles 2 is enough to make me blow a gasket as we speak. Add on The Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, The New Mutants, X-Men: The Dark Phoenix, and Aquaman… I don’t know how I will survive. Not to mention the TV heroes I watch: The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning. Honestly doing sports make me feel like a real life superhero, which is probably why I love it so much. I love villains too but we can talk about that later.
I’m pretty sure my love started with X-Men. A classic. Storm really got me; as a young girl seeing a dark skinned woman be so powerful with abilities to control the weather…THE WEATHER! Ororo Munroe, a literal goddess, a queen, everything. She can fly, she has marksman skills, and hand to hand combat skills. I was like “That’s me!” So Storm had me and then the entire concept of mutants; like they’re powers have a more realistic scientific explanation. Since mutations happen in real life, I was like “Where is my mutation? Where are my powers?” (Similar to how I feel about Hogwarts, where’s my letter). There are so many cool heroes and villains in the X-Men world and the more I read, watched and researched them the more obsessed I became.
Onto now, I am front and center for almost every single superhero, anti-hero, and villain movie. If I don’t get a chance to see it in theaters, I do watch them in some other way (Prime, Netflix, HBO, etc.). Most of movies coming out in 2018 that I mentioned earlier have released trailers already. The movie I’m most excited for is Black Panther. I may or may not have a heart attack in the theater. I’ve been a fan for a long time so this is about to be so crazy. All of my favorite actors and actresses are in this: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong’o, and so many more. To see Wakanda, the most technologically advanced nation on the planet come to life…I can’t even verbalize my excitement about that. The Wakandan people are no less than flawless. THE MUHFUCKIN’ DORA MILAJE?! I’ll stop there, just know I’m excited lol. Another thing, Have you seen The Avengers: Infinity War trailer?! Holy god. Spider-Man’s suit. The Hulk. Captain America. Black Panther. I’m done.
I don’t want this to get too long so instead of ranting and raving for too long I want to know your favorites! I like to do top 5 because there are too many good ones to pass up (and it changes a lot).
- Black Panther
- The Hulk
Let me know your favorites and why! Let’s talk about why they’re so awesome.
Song choice: Superman – Eminem (I love this song so much; listener discretion is advised)
