Now that Wandavision is underway, we’re beginning our time in phase 4. Which I like to think of as the beginning of the second saga in the MCU. With the ending of Thanos in Endgame and its following epilogue in the second Spider-Man movie, the franchise is taking a different approach going forward, integrating a lot of its new characters and events into television series.
Although it might just appear that way to me due to the movie industry all but being on hold due to the ongoing global pandemic.
It’s a minor shock to my system every time I remember there is a Borderlands movie being made. And Cate Blanchett is in it?! It’s nuts. Something that lines up pretty nicely with the fact that I have been thinking about Borderlands a lot lately, as I am prone to do at least once a year. This time spurred on by the fact that I am playing through Borderlands 3 again with a friend.
I’m most assuredly not the first person to write about this. And I can already imagine there are people looking at this title and tearing their hair out at the very idea of me making this post on Halloween and not on Christmas. But that’s the whole point of this post right? To try and figure out what category this movie falls into. And I’m posting it now because my Christmas schedule is always pretty packed between work and my ‘best of year’ series. And hey, what’s wrong with doing something unconventional?
