It's the first weekend without Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and you're like me you're probably missing it badly. With Loki still, several weeks away, we have a while before we get fresh MCU content. Here's what you can watch to fill the time.
Invincible is nothing like anything on T.V. right now
Summary: A teenager inherits his father's powers and tries to follow his dad's footsteps in becoming a superhero and protecting others. As he learns more about where his powers come from, he begins to truly learn what following in his father's footsteps means.
Why you'll like it: Invincible has the action of Falcon and the Winter Soldier with the twist and turns of WandaVision. It's far from a "mystery" show per see, but it will leave you at the edge of the seat guessing and trying to figure out what happens next. It's far gorier than anything the MCU has done, which ironically makes it a fresh breath of air that really departures from the other superhero content in conversation right but manages not to overdo it.
Where to Watch: Amazon Prime Video
If You're Also Missing WandaVision, Check Out Shadow and Bone For Some Magic
Summary: An orphan named Alina finds out she might have the power to destroy the Shadow Fold, a force of darkness filled with monsters responsible for the deaths of many people in a nation called Ravka, including her parents. She becomes part of a powerful group of people with powers called the Grisha and has to determine who she can trust from those she shouldn't.
Why you'll like it: If you're looking for something in the fantasy genre but want to take a break from Superheroes (the comic book ones at least), then it might be time for you to take a trip to the Grishaverse. There's plenty of action and fighting though it also has a bit more of a romance element. Also, I'm not gonna lie; Ben Barnes is hot though; that may just be why I like it and less of a reason why you will.
Where to Watch: Netflix
After watching the first Black Captain America, give the first Black Batwoman a chance too
Summary: In season two of Batwoman, Ryan Wilder discovers Kate Kane's Batsuit and takes over the identity of Batwoman in Gotham. As she tries to get those responsible to answer for events that happened in her past, she sees the suit as a second chance at vengeance and vindication.
Why you'll like it: So if you're not trying to step out of superhero territory and looking for something that's currently airing, season 2 of Batwoman has become worth it. I'll be the first to admit that the season starts shaky. With actress Ruby Rose stepping down from the role of Kate Kane, writers had to develop a story for the new character of Ryan that wasn't easy, and I personally have my qualms with it. But the show has gotten much better, and I think it's worth a chance. You also can start watching from Season 2 with the new Batwoman if you're not interested in Season 1 with the old one. It was pretty easy for me to catch on to what was happening without seeing the events preceding it.
Where to Watch: You can watch the current season from episode 1 on CW Seed. New episodes currently air on Sundays at 8 p.m. on CW. You can also watch new episodes on CW Seed the Monday after they air.
Miss Watching Sam and Bucky Fight Like a Married Couple?
Well, watch a real one with Superman and Lois
Summary: Superman & Lois gives a much different take on Clark Kent as we usually see him on TV and in movies as it follows his marries life with Lois Lane as they “deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society."
Why you'll like it: Sorry to stick with the D.C. content here Marvel Fans, but if you liked the married bliss that came with WandaVision (you know the parts about Wanda and Vision, not the town under a spell and S.W.O.R.D. agents trying to take Wanda down) then this show is worth the watch. More of the action that Falcon and the Winter Soldier gave and less of the mystery that came with WandaVision. With Sam and Bucky acting like a married couple on most days, it really isn't much of a stray from what we've been watching the past few weeks when you think about it.
Where to Watch: You can watch the beginning of episode 1 on CW Seed and catch new episodes on Sundays at 9 p.m. on CW right after Batwoman if you decide to watch that too. You can also watch new episodes on CW Seed the Monday after they air.
