The finale of What If was today, and though I’ve had some pretty big quibbles with this show I liked it overall. But I was so confused when Gamora showed up! Pleased but confused, because despite her being on the posters we’d seen absolutely nothing regarding her so far?
Wait, Leslie Bibb was in the opening credits, so is that…? Yes! It’s the other Christine of the MCU, Christine Everhart.
Who I always very much liked as a character, as it is her who refuses to take Tony’s bullshit and informs him about Gulmira in the first Iron Man film, thus indirectly saving a lot of lives. Not that you would know from the movie that she’s competent and important, since it defaults to immediately slutshaming her.
SO much Marvel stuff going on the moment but okay, you guys have my attention. Interested in the Killmonger, Queen Ramonda and Yondu-T’Challa stuff going on here. And of course anything involving the Guardians and weird stuff in space. I thought I saw Ego in there, ooh. And also what I think was Scarlet Witch turning into an unstoppable glowy thing? I love unstoppable glowy things!
It’s SO NICE to see Yondu in full murdermode again, since obviously he won’t be in GOTG 3!
The poster also came out and I hope Gamora’s presence on it means they have something big planned for her.
