Comic geeks and nerds everywhere rejoiced when Disney finally bought out Twentieth Century Fox! The purchase meant Marvel characters like the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, Blade, and Deadpool would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). How these characters would be assimilated into the already decade long story lines of the MCU was the question. It seems, or is rumored, however, the first X-Men character, Psylocke, will make her debut in Marvel’s upcoming film, “Shang-Chi!”

Psylocke (aka Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock), for those of you who do not know, is a mutant and superhero with the powers of telekinesis (third in power to Professor X and Jean Grey), telepathy, precognition, and is a superb combatant with advanced martial arts and ninjitsu skills. Her signature moves however involve her creating weapons, usually blades (knives katanas,etc.), composed of pure psychic energy to debilitate or kill her opponents. Psylocke’s powers and fighting skills make her a superhuman combatant and she has taken on the villains and heroes like Sabertooth, Black Widow, Shadow King, and Jean Grey.

Psylocke ties into Shang-Chi with the movie’s villain, The Mandarin. In the comics, after being “body swapped” with an Asian assassin, Revanche, she is handed over to Mandarin and becomes his enforcer, “Lady Mandarin” before being cured of her brainwashing and rejoining the X-Men. A brainwashed Psylocke would make quite the opponent for anyone, let alone Shang-Chi. The kid’s got his work cut out for him with her and then also having to deal with Mandarin’s ten alien rings. Having various X-Men appear in different story lines in the MCU to ingratiate them into the universe as a whole. Wolverine could show up in Captain America related films, Storm with Black Panther ones, and so on.

What do you guys think of Psylocke’s possible appearance in the Shang-Chi movie? Sound off in the comments’ section below.

Warner Bros. is postponing Diana Prince’s return to the big screen. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, “Wonder Woman 1984” will now hit theaters on Aug. 14 instead of June 5.

“When we greenlit ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14,” Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman, said in a statement. “We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”

The delays were inevitable as multiplexes across the country remain closed to help halt the spread of the novel virus. Warner Bros. was always committed to debuting its “Wonder Woman” sequel in cinemas, and the studio felt it was realistic for theaters to be up and running again by August.

Wonder Woman 1984 is definitely the film we want to see the most this year. Especially since it is set in our birth year. We hate we have to wait a little longer to see Wonder Woman back on The Big Screen, but as they say “better safe than sorry.” We are praying the world will have returned to some type of normalcy by August.

Marvel’s Black Widow. Originally set to be with us on May 1st, the studio has now delayed the movie indefinitely, pulling it off the schedule and not giving us a new date for when we can expect it to open. Of course, it still will hit theaters at some point, but right now, we don’t know when that’ll be or how long we’ll need to wait to get a new release date.

Indeed, with the Coronavirus quickly spreading and showing no signs of slowing down, it seems like every major movie scheduled from now until at least July/August will be getting delayed, leaving the entertainment landscape pretty empty for the foreseeable future. Unless, of course, some of these titles end up on streaming platforms instead.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but for now, Marvel fans will have to wait a little longer for Phase 4 to kickoff with Black Widow, as it’ll no longer be here in May.

This really sucks. We were looking forward to the Black Widow movie. We are hoping and praying that coronavirus will will cured or at least contained soon. We guess we can count moviegoing as a way to get past the next few weeks of quarantine. Be safe everyone.
