Currently Giving Me All The Marvel Feels (Fall 2015)



Friends, I have a confession. I have neglected my Marvelosity on this blog. It has been since September 4 (MARVELous Friday: Cap All Day, Everyday) that I last posted something involving all things Marvel Comics. 

Really, that is just tragic.


I know, I KNOW. 

Currently, so many things are giving me ALL the Marvel feels. You know, the feels - as in waves of emotions that just cannot be explained. And yes, I am aware these posts do not peek everyone's interest, but I must be true to my inner geek. I must be true to the #MCU. #poetandyoudidntknowit

Here are just a few things that are:

Currently Giving Me All The Marvel Feels (Fall 2015)

1) Shopping Marvelholic

I am constantly looking for unique Marvel related merchandise to purchase. 

I purchased this little GotG pin from PeppersPins on Etsy for my luggage:


I do not know why on earth I needed this, but it just seemed fun. PeppersPins has tons of geeky little buttons, jewelry and keychains. You should check out the Etsy store at PeppersPins. And no, I am not sponsored at ALL. Just sharing the find with my fellow geeks.

I purchased this Agent Carter mug over the summer from a store online called Society6:

Best coffee cup EVER.

I am not sure if they still sell this mug, but the store has other geeky show/movie type mugs. You can check them out here: Society6.

Spiderman is my fave superhero, so I bought this iPhone 6 case:


It is not currently on my phone because I am one of "those" people who switches out her case all the time. I bought this case on Ebay, by the way, for about $2 (NO shipping and handling). I pretty much buy all of our iPhone and iPad cases on Ebay because the prices are ridiculously cheap and the cases are decent quality.

Also, some people have asked me where I find my Marvel t-shirts. Legit, I buy most of them at Walmart in the juniors section. The t-shirts are inexpensive and cute. 

I would totally spend all our money on everything Marvel, but Military "DC Loving" Husband would be a little peeved.

2) Leave Hawkeye Alone

Twice this year, I have seen Jeremy Renner being picked on for some nonsense. You might remember around the time Age of Ultron was released, he and Chris Evans were under fire over some remarks made about Black Widow (about Black Widow, a fictional Marvel comic book character, NOT about ScarJo). Well, he was recently under attack again and you can read about it here:


and here:


Basically, when questioned about equal pay for female co-stars, Renner said that he did not know contracts and legalities; it was not his job. As in, he pays a manager to negotiate for him when it comes to his salary per film. A bunch of nimwads like those cackling hens on CBS's The Talk people were up in arms, calling him sexist, which in turn caused Renner to clarify his words, stating that he has always supported equal pay. 

Seriously? Can we just leave Hawkeye alone?


3) C'mon Girl/RIP (Still) Agent Trip

In one of my recent posts, Mili Wifey's Trick Or Treating Guide For Ratchets (10 Trick Or Treating Tips), I noted in #3 Mind Your Manners, that a child had once said to me "C'mon girl, you ain't got shit." And every.SINGLE.time I read "C'mon girl," I hear it in Agent Trip's voice.

You know you are a fangirl when you start hearing "Marvel voices."

Agents of Shield Season 2 midseason finale "What They Become" was emotional and exhilarating. After all, Agent Skye became a REAL Marvel female Superhero, Daisy Johnson aka Quake. But in the process, we lost Agent Antoine Triplett. Agent Trip was a Marvel legacy - the grandson of Howling Commando General Gabe Jones. His grandfather fought HYDRA side by side with Steve Rogers (aka Captain America) and Agent Carter.



I totally miss Trip. I still have hopes that he will play his grandfather in ABC's Agent Carter.


4) Jessica Jones is FIERCE

The trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones was released last week. I was hesitant when I heard Krysten Ritter was playing the lead, but I never underestimate Marvel Studios when it comes to casting. They always seem to get it right. Anyhoo, the trailer was everything I could have hoped for and more. 

You can watch the trailer in all its glory here:


FYI: Trailer song is Of Monsters And Men's Thousand Eyes

I could not be more excited about our first Marvel female superhero in a television series. She brings so much promise to the MCU for future female characters. Now, I must sit patiently waiting for the Netflix release on November 20th. #hurryupNovember20th

Also, my blogging friend Katie at The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life said that she watched the trailer and it made her want to be into Marvel. Well, I say, JOIN US! Honestly, the best way to start is with any of the tv shows. Both Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones can be watched even if you are not familiar with the MCU, as can Agent Carter. And we here in the Marvel fan family always welcome newbies - the more, the merrier!

5) Daisy Johnson and Shield 

So far, Agents of Shield Season 3 has exceeded my expectations. Agents of Shield is one show that has grown and become even better. The show is filled with awesome kickass women which has me wondering why some of my female bloggers are not watching. #youshouldbe

However, while we were on our monthly getaway, this conversation happened:

Military Husband: Honestly, they could just kill Skye, Daisy, whatever at this point.

Me: 


Really? The moment Daisy appeared in Season 3, Episode 1 "Laws of Nature," I was like #wowwwwww (in my Flavor Flav voice).

She totally looks like the real comic book Quake.

I mean, Daisy Johnson is a BIG deal in the comics. Eventually, she is drafted into the Avengers by Captain America and she takes over as Director of SHIELD when Nick Fury retires. If anything, her character has the most growth potential in the MCU and the real chance of trascending into the movies. I am excited to see where they take this, and think Chloe Bennet is doing a fantastic job with the character.


And, who was not impressed by last week's ambitious episode "4,722 Hours" which focused all on Simmons journey on the "other planet" she was sent to through the monolith. The episode itself truly was a love letter to 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of my favorite movies of all time. I thought Elizabeth Henstridge was excellent, and carried the episode well on her own. Love that Marvel is expanding this series out and exploring new avenues other than having the characters in Shield solve a problem every week. I thought "4,722 Hours" was captivating.

These are things currently giving me all the Marvel feels. I know not all of you are Marvel fans, but I am toying with the idea of recapping and reviewing Jessica Jones episode by episode when it is released in November. Let me know if you would be interested in reading!

Do you or your family watch any of the Marvel movies or tv shows? Are you planning on checking out Jessica Jones on Netflix this November? Let me know in the comments below!

Spinning around in my Marvelosity, I am,

  1. We caught that Avengers episode with Daisy on the other planet and I have to say, I'm sorry I haven't been watching Agents of Shield. :( Also, the Jessica Jones looks AMAZING!

  3. Sadly like many series they start off brilliantly and then seem to lose the plot - not enjoying Agents of Shield this season as much as I did last season and the latest Marvels movie just wasn't as good as previous ones.

  13. Katie, you will LOVE it!! Watch with us. And we should start some kind of club, right. Some people don't know what they are missing. And I am so ready for November 20. That trailer has me so excited!! And even though I will be watching I think you should do the recaps :)

    1. I know!! There needs to be better ways to find each other. Not everyone goes to Cons (including Marvel, these days).
      Yay well I think at least two people would read them!! I wanted to do AOS but watching and recapping are really two different things. One is a job! It would be easier to do with Netflix since I can pause and such!!

      Delete
  14. Wow! I am so out of the loop. I will have to keep up with these movies just like I do the Lifetime movies...through you. LOL!

  15. That Spiderman iPhone case is da bomb!!! I like the mug, too!

  16. I have to admit I'm not much of a Marvel fan - but the rest of the people in my house are. Does that count? I did like the Iron Man movies (because Robert Downey Jr.)

    1. Haha! Hey that works! I think you either love it or hate it. I have to admit I'm pretty weird...I think it would be cool if all these superheroes were really walking the streets. Even tho they come with pretty nasty nemesis. It still would be awesome. Hahaha

  17. I walked past a store yesterday and they had a bunch of Marvel costumes in the window...one was Wonder Woman. My mom remembered dressing as her back in the 70s, when she was VERY relevant. Right now...notsomuch. But I see they're making a Wonder Woman movie, so maybe some people are trying to be ahead of the trend?! When that movie comes out, watch out. Wonder Woman costumes will be in full force THAT Halloween!

    1. Oh girl. Wonder Woman is DC Comics not Marvel! Haha it's a big difference to us comic fans. But yes they are making a new WW movie and the girl playing her is very pretty. I saw her on the Women that Kick Ass panel at comic con. As much as I'm not a DC fan, I hope it does well because I loved WW back in the day!! I even had pjs! Linda Carter rocked!!

  18. Oh my gosh LOVE this!!! Did you ever see Hawkeye singing on The Tonight Show? Freaking hilarious >> https://youtu.be/aQ27iS1mkuo

  20. I went over to the society 6 website and literally got side tracked. They have some awesome stuff!

    The View/The Talk/The News..... Just Ughhh. I literally roll my eyes a bazillion times when I watch them. They all blow everything out of proportion. Everyone needs to put on their big girl panties these days.
