Sharon Carter and Bucky’s Short Hair Are Back
Even though it had been rumored, I was slightly concerned when there was no mention at Comic Con of Emily Van Camp returning as Sharon Carter/Agent 13 in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but she’s now officially back and on board. Maybe Sharon and Bucky will start a support group for people who were unceremoniously left behind by Steve Rogers. (My first thought when he looked at Peggy through that window in the 70s and figured out he was going to end up going back in time to be with her was “Oh my God, this makes the Sharon situation so weird.” Steve’s going to have a very interesting few moments when baby Sharon enters the picture in his new past life.) Sharon never got a whole lot to do in the Cap trilogy, so I’m hoping that TFATWS will be, in part, her time to shine.

We also saw the first poster for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and we all need to prepare ourselves to say goodbye to Bucky’s long hair.

Cruella de Vil is back again
It’ll be hard to rival Glenn Close’s iconic portrayal of the character, but this first look at Emma Stone in Cruella is absolutely killer. Someone on Twitter rightly pointed out that she’s channeling another icon.

This movie is set in the 1970s and according to Stone will be “punk rock.” Joining her in the movie is Emma freaking Thompson, Joel Fry (Game of Thrones) as Jasper and Paul Walter Hauser — who I will watch in literally anything because I love him so much in I, Tonya — as Horace. I was delighted to discover that Hauser isn’t the only member of the I, Tonya team to be involved. Director Craig Gillespe is helming Cruella, and I would not be at all mad if the two films end up sharing at least a bit of the same vibe.
Jeff Goldblum being Jeff Goldblum
His show looks great, and will without a doubt be one of the most enjoyable watches on Disney+, but it was his reaction to the Spider-Man Marvel/Sony debacle that truly won the entire weekend. His little scandalized, “No!” makes me laugh every time I watch this.
Goldblum mouthing “sony and marvel” like it’s an alien language deserves a Peabody. Powerful, enlightening, invigorating. https://t.co/zM0KIo0nKv

The stars of the upcoming Lady and the Tramp walked the red carpet! (Although, I can’t have been the only one concerned about all the crazy flashing…)
Say what you will about the ‘Lady and the Tramp’ remake, but these dogs are ADORABLE, no need to @ me and attempt to foolishly argue. pic.twitter.com/liKXxxXeWO

She- Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight
Teenager Kamala Khan, lawyer Jennifer Walters, and…Moon Knight are all coming to the MCU. While I don’t know a lot about them, I’m familiar with both Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk and know how well loved they are. And more women in Marvel is always a good thing. I’d never even heard of Moon Knight before, but his backstory is intriguing and sounds like it’ll make for a great show.
WandaVision continues to be a giant question mark
This may not be the Disney+ show that I’m the most excited for, but it’s the one that I’m the most fascinated by. Wanda and a humanized Vision sock hopping around in a 50s style story? I don’t even know. Their superhero looks are in shadow on the wall in the top left corner, so we’ll probably still see them in that form. And it was announced that Kat Dennings’ Thor character Darcy Lewis will be in this one, as well as Randall Park’s Agent Woo from Ant-Man. So…stay tuned I guess.
The show will have 23 episodes, one for each of the films in the Infinity Saga, and we now have a glimpse at what the animation will look like in the form of a few shots from the first episode’s scenario: What if Peggy Carter got the Super Soldier Serum instead of Steve Rogers?
I’ve seen very positive reactions to the footage that was shown, and I’m even more happy that Natasha gets to be on a poster without having to do a “sexy action lady” pose!
Some kind of Star Wars thing
This was one of the biggest panels of the weekend and the franchise is a huge deal, but as I explained in part last week, I know absolutely nothing about it. Luckily, there are several members of Team Normal who love it a whole lot, and their thoughts will be must-reads for the Star Wars fans amongst our readership. So until those posts go up, may the Force be with you or whatever.
What was your favorite thing to come out of D23?
