New Shazam Costumes

Fan reactions have been mixed. Everything from excitement at seeing the full adult Shazam family in their regalia to criticism of the “Snyderization” of previously existing looks for each character. Mary Marvel in particular has faced mixed reception across social media.

Loki Celebrates Pride
During this week’s Loki episode on Disney+ fans got confirmation that the MCU’s Loki Laufeyson is bisexual – just before the end of Pride Month. As Variety pointed out in their coverage of the announcement, this makes Loki the first prominent character in the MCU to fall onto the 2SLGBTQIA+ spectrum.
Given the sheer amount of bi-erasure across pop culture (Sara Lance and John Constantine over on the DC side being the most obvious exceptions), this is a pretty exciting moment. It is also worth noting because Loki is now halfway through the season with this revelation coming in the third episode.
