St. Mary’s students have been enjoying the recently released Marvel films, including but certainly not limited to: “Black Widow,” “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” and “Venom: Let There Be Carnage.”
Released this summer in theaters and on Disney+, the conveniently named “Black Widow” gives audiences the backstory of Black Widow, an original Avengers. Black Widow did not have her own movie before “Black Widow” so people had big expectations for the film. However, some were underwhelmed.
Eva Ogbeide (11), said, “I was really looking forward to ‘Black Widow’ because it was the first big movie after ‘Endgame,’ but it was kind of a letdown in my opinion.” She continued, “It seemed like more of a filler movie instead of a big return to Marvel.”
“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” was released this September in theaters introducing us to new characters in the Marvel universe.
Georgia Carls (11), president of the Multiverse Club, said, “My favorite part was when Trevor from ‘Iron Man’ made a cameo.”
Saniya Young (10) said, “I liked the ending fight scene in ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.’”
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage”, a film based around the character Eddie Brock and his alias Venom, was also released in theaters in October. The film was the second “Venom” movie and some people enjoyed the humor in the film.
Sara Ottinger (11) said, “I thought it was really good. It was a lot like the first one in terms of the humor and interactions between Venom and Eddie.”
Marvel will be releasing new films, including “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “The Eternals” at the end of 2021.
Carls (11) said, “I’ll go see ‘The Eternals’ on the release date.”
