Disney California Adventure has a new show at the Hyperion Theatre and it’s one that was born from a silly gag from Disney+’s Hawkeye. In the series, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) takes his kid to see a Broadway musical in New York called Rogers: The Musical – the story of Captain America and the Avengers. Clint makes fun of the musical as there is a scene depicting the Battle of New York, with a song called “Save the City” (written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman).Continue reading “‘Rogers: The Musical’ Creatives Wanted to Focus on Steve and Peggy’s Love Story”
When Hawkeye introduced us to Rogers: The Musical’s “Save the City” number, MCU fans wondered if they would ever experience a Marvel Musical in real life in any shape or form.

May 2024 is on your left and coming fast, folks! And with it, soaring on top in his new position as Captain America is Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson. Last time we saw Sam, he was rightfully earning back the shield (after giving it up to a museum six months after saying he’d do his best). And now the partner has become the master as he heads into theaters with the latest installment in the Captain America series, now titled Captain America: Brave New World!Continue reading “‘Captain America 4’ Announces New Title with Behind the Scenes Photo”

Animator and cosplayer Vishavjit Singh has experienced tremendous trauma in his life. He survived a genocide against Sikh people in India as a young boy, and after he and his family fled to the US, he’s constantly experienced racism and Islamophobia (despite not being Muslim) in the pre- and post-9/11 era. Despite all of this, he remains an optimist for people to treat each other better, and found through his regular cosplaying as Captain America that he could somehow achieve that. But what drew him to this initially?Continue reading “Why this ‘American Sikh’ Cosplays as Captain America”

This month, we’re reviewing not one, but TWO series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+, and Nasim Pedrad’s Chad on TBS! What did we think of the overall series and finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier? How well did it handle the sociopolitical and geopolitical themes it tried to tackle?

Before Dominic, Jamal, Keith, and Britney break down the finale for Disney+’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, the trailer for Shang-Chi, or the #1 movie in America, Mortal Kombat, the crew has to talk about all the WTF moments from Sunday’s Oscars telecast!
It’s not a spoiler alert to say A LOT happens in six episodes of the epic The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series. So it would make sense for the story to continue in some way, shape, or form to explore everything it sets up. As such, it’s not surprising that today via The Hollywood Reporter it was announced that showrunner Malcolm Spellman is teaming up with staff writer Dalan Musson to write the fourth installment in the Captain America franchise.Continue reading “UPDATED: Cap is Back! ‘Captain America 4’ in the Works with Malcolm Spellman”
While Marvel Comics has never allowed Sam Wilson to remain Captain America, it is good to see they have decided to allow him to hold the title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In the comics, they engineered an excuse for him to become Captain America and when they were done with the story arc, Steve Rogers reclaimed his title and his shield.Continue reading “I Am Captain America: Get Used to It”

Finally, the NOC’s newest contributor, Sophia Soto, speaks to Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller, the executive producers of The CW’s Supergirl, about the show’s final season.
2019 has been full of terrible happenings and counter-happenings, but here we are now at the 50th San Diego Comic-Con! (Or #SDCC19, if you’re into the brevity thing.)

After it demolished box office records around the globe, we finally talk about Avengers: Endgame! Though the film has been out for more than a week, you should be aware that the discussion will be filled with spoilers throughout.

I finally understand now why this machine took ten years to assemble. This film is pure spectacle in every best sense of the word. Once the first second starts rolling, it’s all pedal to the metal for 149 minutes.
With the recent confirmation of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General of the United States, Chris Evans has proved to us just how much he is like his film counterpart, Captain America. Evans recently tweeted his disappointment in the confirmation of Sessions. And his argument? David Duke’s praise for Sessions:
