Avengers: Secret Wars | Why The Marvel Cinematic Universe Needs A (Soft) Reboot

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. In this video, I discuss the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the potential impact of Avengers: Secret Wars.

After so many years of sustained success, the MCU is at a crossroads. It’s getting to a point where it’s increasingly difficult to continue the current continuity, given how many actors and actresses have moved on from their roles.

But I believe Avengers: Secret Wars will present a unique opportunity to continue building the MCU for years to come and it involves a soft reboot. Please note this is not a rumor or speculation. This is just me making the case that a soft reboot of the MCU might be the best recourse for the future of this ever-evolving cinematic universe. Enjoy!

And I analyze both version, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. I also make the case for what I feel is the best version of Ultron. Enjoy!

How Cindy Moon Won Me Over And Why Her Story Matters

This video is a brief exploration of Cindy “Silk” Moon, the second person that infamous spider bit after Peter Parker. She’s a fairly new character to the world of Spider-Man and Marvel Comics. Her journey since debuting in 2014 has been a erratic. But she won me over as her story unfolded and I think her story matters now more than it did when she debuted. Enjoy!
