Today is a somewhat abundant news day for the MCU. First, the official debut trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans hit the web, polarizing fan reactions from its less than stellar editing and tone. Second, the critic reviews of Spider-Man: Homecoming were officially released, exciting fans with what is being described as the best Spidey film since Raimi’s masterpiece Spider-Man 2. And last night, the annual Saturn Awards were held and MCU outings like Doctor Strange and Luke Cage were awarded some cool distinctions.
For Doctor Strange, the film took home the Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture award along with Tilda Swinton’s Best Supporting Actress in a Film award. Tied with Stranger Things, Luke Cage was given the Best New Media TV Series award. And hot off the positive press Homecoming is getting, MCU breakout star Tom Holland was awarded Best Performance by a Younger Actor award for his brief but show-stealing stint in last year’s Captain America: Civil War.
For those of you who aren’t in the know, the Saturn Awards is the prestige awarding body created by Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films to honor genre film. While it’s not as prestigious as say the Emmys or the Oscars, seeing these properteries and stars get the distinction they deserve for their work on the MCU is absolutely great to see!
