Margaret Stohl is back with the sequel to her best-selling Black Widow: Forever Red with Black Widow: Red Vengeance, and just like a Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel, it takes the foundation of its predecessor and upgrades the stakes.Declassify >
Marvel’s influence on popular culture and the references to Marvel within that culture has been rising equal to the rise of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but this list is proof that Marvel had its hand well into the popular culture well before the rise of the current MCU.
As with the DC inspired playlist I created, these songs need to be inspired by the comics, so Black Sabbath’s Iron Man, which is totally and completely unrelated to the comic character doesn’t get to be on the list. And no, it’s inclusion at the end of the 2008 Iron Man film doesn’t give it a pass.Declassify >
Honestly, I was expecting to struggle to come up with 20 movies I’d be interested in seeing in 2020. Every year since I started doing this, the years tick past and if I keep the pattern, I then have to find an additional movie to be interested in from the previous year.
2020 was not the struggle I was expecting it to be. And while I may not watch all of these in the theater I am intrigued by each one of them, so… In chronological order, let’s take a look for what 2020 has in store for us at the theaters…Declassify >
It’s the journey, right? Tony Stark said that “part of the journey is the end” in one of this year’s biggest movies, but while 2019 is coming to an end, my journey is still in progress. As all of yours are, to one extent or another.
But this hasn’t been the easiest year for me professionally, while personally, I’ve done some of my best work. That dichotomy has been hard to deal with at times. And as such, I’ve spent more time consuming media on the small screen, the big screen, and in written form to see what might help me in my own journey.Declassify >

Marvel has done it yet again. This time by telling a compelling origin story with the added benefit of having more than enough hints to the larger “it’s all connected” universe, that it almost requires more than one viewing.Declassify >
