The Godzilla vs Kong film recently released a new trailer. The two behemoths have proven to be a major to be reckoned with as the anticipation for the film was clearly evident with the new record it has achieved.
The hype for the movie is massive. Fans even started debating on who they are rooting for and who will win the battle.
The new Godzilla vs Kong trailer officially broke a very important record for Warner Bros. The trailer is officially the biggest trailer debut for Warner Bros. Comicbook.com reported that Godzilla vs Kong’s trailer immediately garnered a total of 25.6 million views across different platforms in just 24 hours.
Out of the 25.6 million, 15.8 million came from Warner Bros’ YouTube Channel, and the other 9.8 million came from other secondary YT channels such as WB UK, HBO Max, the official Godzilla vs. Kong channel, and Legendary Pictures.
The 25.6 million defeated The Batman trailer which was released last DC Fandome. It also beats the 20.8 million views garnered by the Dune trailer after it was released. Godzilla vs Kong garnered massive views in a Sunday trailer release when many people are at home and would mostly not focus on entertainment-related things.
WB has been hyping up the trailer release. One of the reasons for the hype included the fact that the movie will have a theatrical release and HBO Max streaming release on the same day. This news provided an additional boost for the marketing of the films as consumers adapt to the new landscape of the movie industry.
Godzilla vs. Kong will be released on March 26, 2021, in the United States. It will have a simultaneous release on HBO Max and available theaters.

WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD! The following contains spoilers for Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 8.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 8 Manga Chapter
The Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 8 is titled Assassin’s Bullet which means that it will cover Volume 26, Chapter 3, and Chapter 105 in the overall Attack on Titan manga. The episode will focus on the events that occurred after the fight, as Mikasa, Eren, and the other scouts board their getaway airship.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 8 Plot
The episode will follow the events that occurred in the manga chapter. In episode 7, Eren was able to get the War Hammer Titan. Reiner has shifted into his Armored Titan format, albeit his body is only partially covered by the armor. He manages to grab Porco’s Jaw Titan away from Eren.
Mikasa grabs Eren, stating that it’s time to go home. Eren solemnly says to himself, “Reiner, we’ll meet again.” Eren and Mikasa climbed the netting to the airship controlled by the Survey Corps. Mikasa and Eren share a disheartened glance with Armin, who helps to bring Eren on board. Levi insults Eren’s filthy appearance before kicking him and having him restrained.
Eren did not resist, stating that nothing he had written in his letter was wrong. Outside, Jean orders the Paradis soldiers defending the ship to board. He also let them know that the enemies have no anti-aircraft weaponry. Former Garrison Commander Lobov tells Jean to board the airship as he will stay for a while to defend the rear.
Sasha and Connie help Jean up the ship. They informed him that the Corps has six fatalities. Floch tells them to compare those losses to the damage they have done to Marley. This led to a rousing cheer for the Survey Corps, celebrating the New Eldian Empire’s major victory. Jean wonders how long they will have to continue the fight, but Connie tells Sasha and Jean that they are special to him. Connie adds that he is grateful they all survived.
Gabi runs after the airship as Falco chases after her. Gabi recalls the deaths of the two gate guards, Zofia, and Udo. She laments that people spit on her just for being an Eldian. Her reason to improve herself is to prove to the world that Eldians are not bad people. Gabi adds that she cannot forgive the people who trampled her home.
Gabi rejects Falco’s explanation that the enemy is just reacting in retaliation to the similar attack on their land committed by Marley Warriors. Gabi calls the Eldians in Paradis devils threatening world peace. Falco remembers what Eren told Reiner; both inside and outside the Walls, they are the same. Gabi continues to chase the airship.
Lobov is part of Squad Lima who is the last to enter the airship. Lobov sees Gabi running below. Gabi shoots him in the head, immediately killing him. Lobov’s lifeless body falls to the ground, although the wire from his anti-personnel vertical maneuvering equipment is still attached to the airship.
Gabi tests the gear’s trigger, telling Falco to tell the others about her bravery, preparing to board the airship. Colt sees them and rushes to stop the two. Falco remembers Reiner’s words that he must save Gabi, to which he grabs onto her as she activates the gear.
The Survey Corps have turned their backs and Gabi rolls inside. She immediately fires towards the group of soldiers. The bullet hits Sasha’s torso and falls limply, much to the horror of the shocked Connie and Jean. Both Jean and Gabi aim at one another but Falco tackles Gabi to the floor. This led for her bullet to go astray and Jean missing his mark.
An angry group of Paradis soldiers restrains Gabi and Falco, as Jean and Connie rush to Sasha’s side. While Sasha bleeds out and in shock, she makes a delirious statement if their food is ready, ending on the word ‘meat’. Floch tells Jean how the two children boarded the ship, adding that he will throw them out of the airship. Jean woefully asks if throwing them out of the airship will stop the killing.
Back in the ground, Marley officer Koslow informs Marley Commander Theo Magath that Falco and Gabi ran away. Magath talks to Piek, who states that she remembers the bearded soldier who trapped her and Porco Galliard.
Pieck states that the bearded soldier is a lady, who she saw as part of the first missing survey ship that was sent to Paradis Island. Pieck adds that the woman is a follower of Zeke Yeager. Back in the airship, Levi tells Yelena to remove her fake beard. In the other room, Gabi shouts at the Survey Corps soldiers, cursing them as devils, adding that Marley has not lost yet.
Gabi says that Zeke’s will for Eldia will be continued by true Eldians. Jean says that he’d let Gabi tell that personally to someone. Jean brings the two Warrior candidates in the room where Zeke is sitting near Eren, as he is regenerating his limbs.
Zeke asks Falco and Gabi why they are on the ship. Gabi is glad he is alive, although he is captured. Jean explains what Gabi did in the other room, causing Armin and Mikasa to go out to see Sasha.
Hange entrusts the piloting to Onyankopon and enters the room, asking Zeke if everything went according to the plan. To the shock of Gabi and Falco, Zeke answers that the plan went well although there were some miscalculations. Hange asks about the two children, to which Zeke replies, “Miscalculations” insinuating that the two Warrior candidates on board are unexpected.
Jean angrily asks Yelena about her task of trapping the Cart and Jaw Titans. The escape of the two complicated the mission. Yelena takes the responsibility for the mishap. Levi adds that because of it, the Beast Titan had to throw more stones than planned.
Levi insincerely flatters Zeke for coming up with his dramatic improvisation of throwing the stones. Zeke sarcastically jokes back that he had done so, especially with Levi wanting to kill him, to which Levi replying with a vague threat.
Eren believes that the successes gained in this battle, which includes killing Marley’s military leaders, have bought them enough time. Hange disagrees, stating that it is more likely that the world will launch a united global offensive against Paradis Island. Hange expresses her disappointment in Eren for abusing his trust in the Survey Corps to force them into action. In the process, he has betrayed the Corps’ trust.
Zeke counters Hange that having the Founding Titan together with a royal-blooded Titan will make all of their sacrifices worthwhile as it will grant freedom for Eldia. Connie comes in crying, breaking the news of Sasha’s death.
Eren asks if Sasha had any last words, to which he was told ‘meat’. Eren let’s out an unhinged chuckle, but with a despondent look on his face. Jean blames Eren for Sasha’s death, explaining that she died because Eren dragged the Survey Corps in the battle. As the others around him look on, Eren grits his teeth as he remembers Sasha’s wish to recover stolen lands so they can raise livestock.

Attack on Titan Season 4 abounds with rumors on social media regarding the possible cancellation brought about by the harassment of MAPPA staff, as well as news regarding its mid-season break. This left many fans angry against the small group in the fandom that may have been causing the strife.
Attack on Titan can be considered as one of the biggest animes in the world, but the series is not exempted from any online speculations and rumors. There were rumors circulating on social media regarding the final season’s cancellation. The rumors claim that MAPPA has canceled the final season.
Is Attack on Titan Season 4 Canceled?
The good news is, Attack on Titan Season 4 is not canceled. Despite a minority of fans threatening to boycott the series and harassing MAPPA’s staff members, the series will continue.
There have been multiple unsubstantiated rumors on social media regarding the cancelation of the series. The rumors stemmed from the attacks on the MAPPA staff which apparently pushed the studio to cancel the series. Fortunately, all the cancelation rumors are unfounded. However, there have been some viewers attempting to boycott or ‘cancel’ the series on social media using extremely-negative criticism.
The issue started ever since MAPPA took over the fourth season of the anime. WIT Studio handled the animation of the first three seasons of the show. WIT Studio certainly did a phenomenal job with the animation, although there were some misses once in a while.
There were fans who were not happy with the animation from MAPPA while other fans are satisfied. Nonetheless, there is a small group of people who are loud enough on social media to cause some ruckus. These people were not only giving feedback of criticizing the animation, but they are also adamant in harassing staff members of MAPPA.

One of the staff members of MAPPA responded to the harassment. The staff asked people to stop harassing the staff members. In the response, it is clear that the staff member believes that people are entitled to their opinion and have the right to criticize whatever they want. However, the issue was the harassment, insults, and threats thrown at the staff members whenever a new episode comes out.
Personally, I believe that not everyone will have the same tastes and criticisms are always acceptable. Feedback is necessary to improve and create better output. However, harassment is a different issue and is not acceptable.

“These guys are just humans, yet they’re coming to kill me?” The fear in Porco’s eyes truly sums up how far the people of Paradis has come. Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7: Assault began how the sixth episode ended.
Attack on Titan Season 4 has been showing the other side’s perspective while re-introducing the viewers to the beloved characters from Paradis Island. The season has beautifully portrayed the full-on war between Marley and Eldia. However, it’s not just a simple country versus another country kind of war. In fact, most of the fighting is between the Marley Eldians and the Paradis Island Eldians.
WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! The following contains spoilers from Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7 Review
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7 which was titled Assault begins with the last episode’s conflict. Episodes 5 and 6 really ramped up the action-scenes and large-scale battle between the Marley Eldians and Paradis Island Eldians. Episode 6 really portrayed how far Eren Yeager is willing to go to achieve his goal.
Many fans said that episode 6 was one of the best episodes in the whole series. Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7 came and it didn’t disappoint. It was action-packed and filled with scenes that were really breathtaking.
While watching episode 7, I can feel that there was not one dull moment. Not just because of the action scenes, but because also because the stakes were high and the entire episode was very intense.
There were times in the episode where the Marley Eldians looked like they were about to be defeated but some characters showed up to turn the tide over. It looked like the Paradis Island Eldians were backed into a corner but they already had a contingency in place that turned the whole battle in favor of the Paradis Islanders.
The pacing of the whole episode is great and will leave you at the edge of your sit. Everything aligned well and every scene is really to watch out for. On YouTube, where many YouTubers reacted to the episode, many of them stated that they were out of breath after the episode. This just goes to show that the episode took the literal meaning of ‘breathtaking’.
The scenes for episode 7 was filled with action, emotion, tension, and bewilderment. Even some manga readers who already knew what was going to happen in the anime felt the same hype and excitement while watching the episode. I’m one of those people who already read the manga and watched the anime. I can certainly say that even though I am aware of the events, the episode was still able to deliver top-tier excitement.
There are people who didn’t like the animation to the point that they harass MAPPA's staff. MAPPA even had to respond to the toxicity. Personally, I don’t find it that jarring. In fact, a lot of the scenes from season 4 were very-well animated in my opinion. Episode 7 is not an exception as the scenes were animated well and didn’t feel like any of the animations were out of place.
The song and soundtrack choices for the episode were also reminiscent of the earlier seasons. The soundtrack was put in the right places and heightens up the emotions of the scenes.
Another thing to note in the episode is that it ran for over 20 minutes, yet it felt like only five minutes have passed since the episode started. I am not alone with this sentiment as many reaction YouTubers were surprised when the episode ended, saying that it felt like the episode just started.
Overall, my Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7 review is nothing but praises. My rating for the episode is 10 out of 10.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7 Plot
The episode started in the scene that was left off in episode 6. Porco Galliard was in his Jaw Titan form when he was surrounded by the hovering scouts. It seemed like Porco was really finished until a bombardment of rapid gunfire surprised the Paradis scouts. As it turns out, Pieck Finger, in her Cart Titan form, just arrived in time together with her equipment carrying the Panzer unit.
The scouts were forced to retreat and hide from the gunfire bombardment. Back in Eren’s situation, he hasn’t eaten the War Hammer titan as of yet when the younger sister of Willy Tybur made a crystallized version of a War Hammer to trap and pierce Eren. Unfortunately, she seemed like she has exhausted herself and it was the last trick up her sleeve.
The Beast Titan, also known as Zeke, started roaming the battlefield, which stuns everyone. Zeke stated, “Let none escape. Kill ‘em all.” Levi on the side of the scouts said, “Don’t die on me. Survive!” Levi proceeded to launch an attack on Zeke while Zeke ran towards him.
The episode cut into the opening theme before continuing the events in the episode. Reiner’s Armored Titan surfaces but it wasn’t standing, it’s more like an enclosed protective shell enveloping him and Falco. Falco notes that Reiner is alive and isn’t moving so he went out to call for help.
The battle continues and it seemed that it was turning in the favor of the Marley Eldians. Porco and Pieck assessed their situation, where Pieck stated that the Paradis scouts have no escape route as the armies have already surrounded the area. She told Porco to focus on protecting Zeke from “Ackerman”, specifically Levi.
Meanwhile, the scene shifted to the scene at seen where there were fleets heading towards the battlefield. A lone person on a boat was in the middle, prompting one of the ship’s commander to ask the person what he is doing in the middle of the fleet. The person turns out to be Armin who immediately transforms into the Colossal Titan.
The transformation led to a massive explosion, comparable to a nuclear explosion. Armin immediately wiped out the battleships and the entire fleet that was supposed to back up the Marley army.
Commander Magath, Gabi, Falco, Porco, and Pieck were all taken aback by the massive explosion. Magath, Gabi, and Falco were knocked to the ground by the shockwave from the blast. Porco and Pieck stated that it was the Colossal Titan who transformed, exclaiming that it was the titan they stole from Bertholdt.
Enraged, Porco started charging towards Eren, stating that without the Founding Titan, the plans of the Paradis soldiers will fail. Mikasa unsheathed her blades which Porco noticed and stated, “The other Ackerman? Get out of my way!”
This chain of events caused them to lose focus on the Beast titan. As Pieck noticed the incoming attack from the Paradis soldiers, she was surprised after seeing Levi attack their War Chief. Zeke went down without a hitch in front of Gabi, Falco, and Magath. Levi threw an explosive to Zeke’s nape as Magath scrambles to take Falco and Gabi away from the blast.
Armin came out of his Colossal Titan form and witnessed the devastation he caused. A blimp hovered above him. Meanwhile, Sasha found an opening and shot one of the members of the Panzer unit, Carlo, right in the middle of the head. Pieck was about to attack her out to seek revenge. Jean arrived and blasted a thunder spear right into the Cart Titan’s left eye. Jean proceeded to order the others to fire their thunder spears to the Cart Titan.
The move annihilated the entire Panser unit and gravely injured Pieck. She fell on the ground in front of the bewildered Falco, Magath, and Gabi. As Jean moved in to fire the thunder spear that will surely kill Pieck, Falco runs towards her and begs Jean to not stop. Jean paused but proceeded to launch the thunder spear. However, Pieck’s steam knocked out the thunder spear which saved her and Falco from certain death.
As the Paradis soldiers moved in toward Pieck, Magath and other Marley officers started shooting them while in the air to let Gabi and Falco escape with Pieck. As this was happening, Porco proceeded to attach Eren and did some damage. Eren blocked one of his attacks using his hand that was holding the crystallized War Hammer holder.
Porco’s attacked damage the crystal which made Eren realized that the Jaw Titan can break the crystal. Mikasa disrupted Porco’s attacks which led him to back away. Mikasa stated that Porco’s Jaw Titan is faster compared to Ymir’s Jaw Titan.
The scene went back to Pieck with Falco, Gabi, and Marley officer. Pieck’s injury was too much that it would be impossible for her to go back to the battle for now. Gabi wanted to know where Reiner is and how he can help. Falco, knowing Reiner’s condition, suggested leaving him out of it.
Gabi was angered by Falco’s response, reminding him of Udo, Zofia, and the others that were killed by Eren. At this instant, a blimp was seen overhead hovering. As it turns out, it was Hange and Armin, with Onyankopon piloting the blimp. They will use the blimp to gather the Paradis soldiers and escape Marley.
Upon seeing this, Porco immediately went after the blimp before noticing Mikasa lying in wait. Mikasa succeeded in cutting off his legs, which left him vulnerable and unable to do anything in front of Eren.
Without being able to do anything, Eren dismembered the Jaw Titan’s limbs, removing his two arms. Without any limbs, Porco is unable to move. Eren forced the crystallized War Hammer holder into the mouth of the Jaw Titan. To Porco’s horror, Eren used his jaw to break the crystal.
Eren succeeded in breaking the crystal, as well as crushing the War Hammer holder inside the crystal. Her blood flowed right into Eren’s open mouth. Eren succeeded in getting the War Hammer’s abilities. Eren proceeded to smash Porco’s to the ground multiple times.
As Gabi and Falco watched in horror, they realized that Porco is about to get eaten as well. Out of desperation, Gabi, with all her might, screamed for Reiner to help. Her screams and cries echoed, reaching Reiner. Falco joined in, screaming for Reiner to help.
Reiner kept on saying for the kids to “Shut up” and “Please be quiet.”. As the screams of the two kids continued, Reiner opened his eyes and transformed into an Armored Titan, saying, “Why won’t you guys just let me die in peace?”
His transformation caught the attention of Eren who was about to eat Porco. His titan was not fully armored compared to the past, which made his titan form different from the past.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 7 Insights
Episode 7 was filled with surprises, especially for fans who are anime-viewers only and preferred to not read the manga. When one side seemed to be winning at the beginning, the other side was able to turn the tide in their favor.
Ultimately, Armin’s transformation was pivotal to the Paradis’ side. Even with Eren, Mikasa, Levi, and the squad, the Marley team would have been able to put up a fight. His transformation surprised Pieck and Porco that they lost their attention on their goal to protect Zeke from Levi.
Upon seeing the Colossal Titan, Porco charged angrily at Eren. He did some damage but it was at this moment that Eren realized that he needed the Jaw Titan to get the War Hammer. Pieck, who remained level-headed throughout the battle, was also surprised that she had her attention taken away from Zeke, which made Levi immediately attack, whether to kill him or perhaps, for some other reason, get to him.
The episode was filled with so much action and emotional intensity which is why it can be considered as one of the best episodes of the season. Episode 8 will truly be a treat. Even when there are no action scenes, Attack on Titan is known to deliver good scenes that are always pivotal to the story.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 8 will be released on Sunday, January 31.

WandaVision’s third episode titled Now in Color gave an emotional moment. Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) had to relive her traumatic past where she lost a loved one due to one of the most iconic villains in the Avengers’ films.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. The following contains spoilers for WandaVision Episode 3
WandaVision’s first two episodes referenced some parts of the Avengers: Age of Ultron which was central to Wanda Maximoff and Vision’s (Paul Bettany) backstories in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Episode 3, Now in Color, not only referenced the events that happen in Age of Ultron but also the traumatic incident in Wanda’s past.
It all started when Geraldine or Monica Rambeau (Tenoyah Parris) visited Wanda to help with her pregnancy which resulted in her giving birth to twins. In a casual manner yet subtly mournful, Wanda mentioned that she had a twin named Pietro.
This led Geraldine to say, "He was killed by Ultron, wasn't he?" Her response gets a powerful and strong response from Wanda, demanding to know why she asked this. Geraldine seemingly pretends she doesn’t understand even when Wanda noticed her S.W.O.R.D. necklace and began questioning who she truly is.
Wanda was ultimately furious, to the point that Geraldine was kicked out of Westview. This is seemingly a sign that Scarlet Witch is going to do everything in her power to stop anyone from intruding into her new reality.
The scene was long overdue as the MCU which further locks WandaVision's canonicity. It needed to address one of the most painful things that happened to Wanda. The death of her brother and how Wanda reacted when reminded about it showed that the loss left a mental trauma to her.
As the episodes progress, it seems like Wanda is having a hard time keeping up the charade. Time will tell until Wanda can no longer keep her grief buried after losing her twin and her beloved Vision.

Attack on Titan Season 4 is a few episodes in and the show’s final season has been a great treat. As the manga explores new heights and even introduces many Colossal titans, the series continues to give refreshing excitement to the fans. However, the series is not moving without any controversy.
After a new studio took over the animation of the series, some fans were not happy with how Season 4 is animated. Not only are the group of anti-fans unsatisfied with the change, but they are also committed to harassing the Attack on Titan staff each week. Whenever new episodes go live, the anti-fans would directly harass the staff.
For the first three seasons of Attack on Titan, Wit Studio handled the animation of the hit-anime series. In its fourth season, MAPPA has taken the mantle. When the first episode aired, some unsatisfied fans aired their opinions. Unfortunately, there were other fans who were not only voicing their opinions but went as far ahead as demonstrating toxicity against the MAPPA’s staff.
If the fans were only voicing their discontent, it would have been acceptable as it is their opinion. However, the toxicity of the hatred has become so great that some anti-fans have become fixated to the point of harassing the staff via Twitter and other means.
This toxicity led a staff member from MAPPA to address the issue head-on. A Twitter user has helped to translate the staff member’s tweet. The tweet was heartfelt and it was obvious that the staff are frustrated with the hatred.

The staff explained that they have poured their sweat, blood, and tears into the anime. The statement went on to say that the team is working on very short-time constraints, which are shorter than a normal anime. Part of the statement also asked people that they can voice their opinions but harassing the staff is unacceptable.
It is true that some people will not like how Season 4 is animated but there are many others who liked it as well. Personally, I believe that opinions are warranted but when it becomes toxic, that’s when the problem comes in.

Elizabeth Olsen has been a great choice for the role of Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there was another franchise that inspired her to become a part of one.
Before she landed at Marvel, she was starring in a lot of little independent films playing ‘disturbed roles’ but she wanted to try something different. She wanted to be a part of the large fun movies, those that she enjoyed watching when she was growing up like Star Wars.
In fact, the actress stated that it was specifically Star Wars that inspired her to want to be a part of large franchises. During a recent interview with Collider, Olsen shared how her love of Star Wars led her to Marvel where she currently plays Scarlet Witch. She said that it was actually a funny decision that she had to put out her intentions
The actress talked to her agent and to her manager, who she added were like her ‘other mothers’. She told them that she wanted to be considered to work on projects that she grew up watching as a kid such as Star Wars. The actress said:
And I told them, ‘I want to be considered for the projects that I grew up …’ - like, as a kid, looking at Star Wars and I was obsessed with Star Wars. You couldn’t peel me away from Star Wars as a child. And so I was trying to figure out, how do I start putting that out there because I feel like all I’m getting are these really disturbed women in independent films. [Now] it’s just a disturbed woman in a big franchise! They said take meetings with the people who run these companies and so I literally did. I met with Kevin [Feige] and a couple other people that were working there at the time. And then I met with the people who were running Legendary at the time. And there were a few others in different places.”
Perhaps, Olsen may find herself in a Star Wars movie someday. In the meantime, the actress has a long road ahead within the MCU. Aside from WandaVision, the actress is also about to take part in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
With Wanda Maximoff soaring to new great heights, we will still get to see the actress in more projects. It will be interesting to see how her story arc in phase 4 of MCU will pan out.

Marvel’s Black Widow has been delayed multiple times and is expected to be delayed once again. A new report stated that the situation that led to the 2020 delays is still not getting better in 2021.
Multiple parts of the United States continue to struggle with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the prospect of having people fill up a theater does not look promising. If the released. According to Comicbook.com, Black Widow may have another delay.
If the Spring season when Black Widow is to be released does not pan out the way people hoped for, it would likely lead for the movie to have another delay. The probable course of action is to likely release it on theaters and Disney+ at the same time, the way Warner Bros did with Wonder Woman 1984.
The reason why the streaming service option is available is due to the fact that the studio cannot keep on delaying the movie forever. This is why some fans have been calling out for a streaming release solution since last summer.
As much as Disney wants to keep the theater experience, they will have to make a decision soon. The reception of Wonder Woman 1984 over at HBO Max could be a factor in the decision-makers’ minds.
Wonder Woman 1984 nabbed $118 globally despite the raging pandemic and will have a prolonged theater run. Its performance in the streaming service, HBO Max, is also impressive.
The Observer reported the ANTENNA data showing that Wonder Woman 1984 for HBO Max and Hamilton for Disney+ are the two top impactful subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) releases of 2020 when it comes to subscriber acquisition for their opening weekends.
When it comes to US growth, Wonder Woman 1984 drove 40% more gross adds to HBO Max during its Christmas debut, which is more than what Hamilton did for Disney+ release on July 4, 2020.
As of the moment, there are no confirmations that Black Widow will be delayed or will be released on Disney+.

The first two episodes of WandaVision was able to set up several questions in the minds of many Marvel fans, without hinting at possible answers. Something is going on that not everyone can quickly understand. WandaVision is a canon in the MCU, but is its timeline in the Marvel Universe?
One of those mysteries is the ever-changing sitcom environment of Westview. The show has not fully offered any clarity as of yet with regards to the actual time or setting of the series. Before the show aired, it was reported that the series is set after the events in Avengers: Endgame. That leaves many questions especially with Vision (Paul Bettany) alive.
Vision was killed in Avengers: Infinity War, yet he is very much one of the main characters in WandaVision. Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) seemed to be in a good place at the end of Endgame. Nonetheless, the series seems to be hinting at something dark and dangerous lurking within her mind.
Every bit of these details made fans wonder about the exact where the exact WandaVison timeline is happening. Could the series be some sort of a prequel to the current of the MCU which follows Black Widow wherein it took place before Infinity War? Could the series be taking place inside the Soul World which is an effect of the snap?
What is the exact WandaVision Timeline?
Tenoyah Parris who plays the character of Monica Rambeau in the series said that neither of the aforementioned theories is true. She confirmed that the events in the series occurred right after Endgame.
Parris told TVline, “[The series] picks up right after the events of Endgame, and for Monica, it’s obviously years later from when we saw her as a girl in Captain Marvel. We get to find out what’s been happening with her over those years that we missed, how she’s grown and evolved.”
Monica Rambeau was a young child in Captain Marvel which was set in the 1990s. Although the actress’ character is only known as Geraldine in the series, Marvel confirmed that Parris is the older version of Monica in the show and will eventually show up in Captain Marvel 2.
