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.

Jahi Winston as “Mouse”

The one truth Mouse knows is that he loves the power, artistry and energy of “The Ride” — the exhilarating motorized-dirt-bike scene that is both pastime and passion on the streets of Baltimore. During one eventful summer, Mouse steers his way through two father figures, a first girlfriend, the pull of illegal choices and the thrill of stunt-riding that makes him and his friends feel like CHARM CITY KINGS.

Meek in “Charm City Kings”

We are really excited to see “Charm City Kings!” We personally know Jahi and he is one amazing young actor. Did you catch him in “Queen & Slim?” The film is reminiscent of “Biker Boyz” (2003), with the motorcycle motif. We have no doubt this film is going to amazing. Besides we want to see if Meek Mill has any real acting chops!

CHARM CITY KINGS will debut at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, followed by a release in NY/LA/Baltimore on April 10thand nationwide April 17th 2020.

Just when you thought Captain Marvel was virtually unstoppable in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a rumor spawns that may through her a curve ball! Apparently, in an effort to introduce the mutant superhero team, X-Men, to the MCU, Rogue will appear in the next Captain Marvel movie.

Rogue vs. Captain Marvel

Rogue’s appearance in the next Captain Marvel film should not come as a surprise. Fans familiar with Marvel Comics know that Rogue began as a super villain, allied with her foster mothers, Mystique and Destiny, mutant terrorists and leaders of the team, The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Rogue’s original, and sole power set, was her signature ability to absorb superhuman powers, skills, and memories from others through physical contact. Her extra powers of flight and superhuman strength were abilities she “stole” by permanently absorbing Captain Marvel’s (then Ms. Marvel) powers permanently by holding on to her for too long. Captain Marvel was left comatose after her battle with Rogue for years and after struggled to become the hero she once was again.

We really hope Rogue does appear in the next Captain Marvel film! It is the perfect way to introduce her to the MCU! Also, she joins her fellow “X-Woman,” Psylocke by being an X-Men character rumored to be appearing in an upcoming Marvel Film. As we reported earlier, Psylocke may appear as “Lady Mandarin” in the upcoming “Shang-Chi” film.

What do you guys think? Are you hoping Captain Marvel and Rogue will come to blows in the next “Captain Marvel” film? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

The love is real when it comes to “Hair Love!” The animated short film just won a coveted Oscar for “Best Animated Short” at the 92nd annual Academy Awards!

The film centers on a little Black girl who’s father attempts to do her hair–with some challenges. The film ultimately normalizes and showcases Black hair as beautiful in all its forms and has been met with rave reviews and positivity since its debut last year.

The creator of the film, Matthew A. Cherry, and Karen Rupert Tolliver, the film’s producer, both feel “Hair Love” not onlu makes a powerful statement about Black hair, but also because they wanted to see more representation in animation.

Matthew and Karen also brought along DeAndre Arnold, a Black teen from Texas, suspended and barred from walking in his high school graduation because his locks “violate school policy.” We are completely here for “Hair Love” and all its messages! If you have not seen the animated short you can check it out below! Congratulations to everyone who made this project a success, you more than deserve it!
