Black Widow will be released on July 9
Hi, it’s Jay, and I’m holding the fort for Kim today, which means I’m going to search the trailer. I apparently chose a good week to take on that responsibility, as there were a lot of good trailers to choose from – it looks like media companies are gearing up for a big year in movies and TV shows.
My wife and I spent the first part of this year watching the entire Marvel cinematic universe, and as we progressed, we couldn’t believe that Scarlett Johansson’s black widow didn’t have her own movie yet. As you can expect, we are very excited to see Black Widow, especially after the new trailer that was released on Saturday.
Black Widow will debut on July 9 in theaters and on Disney Plus as a $ 30 Premiere Access title.
THE SUICIDE SQUADRON
Speaking of superhero movies (or, in this case, I think antiheroes), Warner Bros. released a second trailer for The Suicide Squad less than a week after debuting the first. The film, directed by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, is packed with a cast of stars, including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Idris Elba as Bloodsport and even Sylvester Stallone as a giant CGI shark called King Shark.
The Suicide Squad opens in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6.
SEASON 5 RICK AND MORTY
I’ll be totally honest here: although Rick and Morty are a constant thing on the internet and also something that seems totally mine, I have never seen a single episode and I basically know nothing about it. But if you’re looking forward to the fifth season, an official trailer has arrived this week. The new season debuts at Adult Swim on June 20.
STAR WARS: THE BAD BATCH

Shadow and Bone is a new Netflix series based on the hit romance novel trilogy for young adults. “The forces of darkness conspire against orphan cartographer Alina Starkov when she unleashes extraordinary power that can change the destiny of her war-torn world,” according to a description by Netflix. In fact, I just bought the first book in the series at the library and am looking forward to reading it before the Shadow and Bone premiere on April 23.
