It works, I think. It's a very cute design and a bit more distinct than Panther's Quest Shuri. One of the movie adaptations that really works for me. I'm feeling like a Black Panther fanboy the more that I think of the original designs from that movie.

I wonder how her personality or portrayal in this will compare to how she's depicted in Panther's Quest. Will she come off younger, maybe?

The version on Panther's Quest felt like a melding of comic and movie Shuri while this seems more MCU-based.

Looking forward to the special. I kind of wish Doreen wasn't always the one bonding with new recruits though. Nothing against her but I'd like to see some of the others having those sorts of interactions sometimes. Maybe I'm thinking about it wrong and others have had the opportunities but Doreen's personality can just be a little overpowering when she does it.

Just a quick correction about the GLAAD article posted on the last page that seemingly confirmed more Marvel Rising. Noticed the date it was published was in February 2018. What they were teasing there might happen in "Playing with Fire" (or even "Operation Shuri" since it hasn't premiered yet). If it doesn't, then I guess there will indeed be more, but we'll find out after the final special announced so far debuts.

I could kind of see it popping up in "Playing with Fire" since America is one of the focal characters and the only LGBTQ member of the team (as of this writing).

I've thought this series might have been over a couple of times already and they're surprised me oh, so I wouldn't rule it out but Marvel Studios/Entertainment/Television/Family Entertainment is in such a big transitional period right now that there's no telling what may or may not happen.

I wouldn't mind if they did another movie, though I wish they could use Gwenny in one.

I guess the future of Marvel Rising depends a lot on Feige, but another incentive would be whether the merchandise and Youtube videos have done well for them.

I doubt that. DC Super Hero Girls pretty much HAD to do that because the Fontana shorts were so bad but Marvel Rising is solid. There's no reason or need to reboot it.
I don't think quality had anything to do with it, moreso a different showrunner wanting to go in a different direction.

The Fonanta DCSHG ran for a while so I think DC viewed it as successful in it's own right.

For what it's worth, the other specials are still up. I assume Playing With Fire will still debut on YouTube. They'll probably be privatized when they go up on Disney+. It helps that Initiation is still available as shorts, just not as a special.

On another note, when the Marvel Rising specials are put on Disney Now, they're under the Disney XD label.

Would you believe I was first exposed to Angelica Hale through here?
Oh look at that. My cable provider wants me to pay even MORE money just so I can watch the new Owl House episode on DisneyNow. Are you kidding me?
The winner is "Let's Meet Sonic", which got 3 votes. "Monster Party" got 1 vote. The next matchup is animated crossovers with live action shows. This time it's between "Halloween Night At The Museum" (Ultimate Spiderman & Jessie) and ScoobyNatural (Supernatural & Scooby Doo).


If schedule listings are to be believed, it appears as though Toonami will be airing reruns of DBS' Universe Survival Saga starting tonight.
Can we talk about how a French home video company had an opening logo consisting of an animated Groucho Marx set to disco music? I especially like the Fender Rhodes solo during the second half, even if it's just the warning message.
