Yeah, there are probably more moments like that in Ragnarok that I don't remember. I was... enjoying some substances when I watched that one. I have a vague recollection of having a good time with it, but it's mostly a blur. (-:

That is why we don't mix sugar free gummy bears and pepsi. It starts off fun but always ends in the bathroom. You remember a bit of fun at the start then it all blurs when you start running.

'Ant-Man 3' Villain Could Be Kang the Conquerer, Played by 'Lovecraft Country' Star Jonathan Majors

Kang the Conqueror has a connection to the Fantastic Four so this would be an interesting villain choice for an Ant-Man movie if true.

I hope they have her as a lawyer.

Olivia Wilde is directing a Spider-Verse film and mentioned Kevin Feige involvement. No word on exactly what. She's co-writing with her Booksmart partner Katie Silverman.

Oh. Yeah.

p.s. If you haven't watched Booksmart, WTH IS WRONG WITH YOU RENT IT RIGHT NOW.

I heard good things about Booksmart, BadKen just tipped me into it

Booksmart is fantastic. One of my favorite comedies of the last few years.

Booksmart is awesome. It does the same rare balance Mike Schur does in his later shows - funny without being gross out or mean, warm without being schmaltzy. I really liked how all the characters you thought were going to be standard high school cliches turned out to be their own complex people. And Gigi is just an absolute treasure (played by Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher's daughter).

Tatiana Maslany cast as She-Hulk. Holy freaking sh*t.

Orphan Black has been on my watchlist forever (I'm generally bad at catching up on TV), but may need to bump that up, seeing as She-Hulk is definitely among my favorites in the Marvel Universe.

The amazing part is how well she does in all the different roles.

For some reason I've never got around to watching Orphan Black Season 5, but it's a very good show and Maslany is sublime.

Quite bonkers.

I trust they will make an interesting show but considering how they quit Agents of Shield and Agent Carter I am not going to get to invested in the series.

Does seven seasons really count as "quitting" Agents of Shield? That show had a seriously long run.

I don't think the goal here is to make a long running series. These are stories set between the movies. If they have stories, maybe a series will continue, but I don't think that's necessarily the goal.

At least that's what I believe I've read.

More in the British series style.

Right. I don't need 24 episodes that are half filler.
The 10ish episode season is pretty good.
See Lucifer. Season 3 was a slog, but the shorter ones are much tighter story-wise.

Probably not but I recall lots of people felt they left lots unfinished or rushed.

Agreed, but even further than that, I don't really expect a second season of Wanda Vision. There may be another Wanda or Vision (or both show), but I'd think it's much more likely to really be designed to set up the overall MCU for mutants (their kids seen in the trailer) and or Monica Rambeau (who's also in the trailer).

Agent Carter just didn't have an audience to get advertisers. My wife and I watched it, but really didn't love it, so I can see how it didn't catch on with the masses.

Disney creating content for a content starved Disney+ is a different equation. And the fact that it's under the same roof as the MCU instead of a competing business unit leaves me to believe the plans may make more sense this time.

Looks very much like remixing Wanda's pre-M Day breakdown with the recent Vision in the suburbs series, and seems very much like the type of wackiness I enjoy.

That trailer is pretty phenomenal, and this is when I finally give in and subscribe to Disney +. Looks very bizarre and creepy, and the fact Kitty from That 70s Show is at the table at dinner just adds something extra to the weirdness of this.

That's Monica Rambeau blasting in at the end, right? She's not exactly a "Scarlet Witch" person in the comics, so wondering how the hell she factors in.

Nice breakdown to help understand the trailer

Sigh... that thumbnail.

Here's an alternative: https://youtu.be/dVUjn_pfEBw

This goes pretty deep on predictions which may or not be spoilery. Proceed with caution.

Tatiana Maslany is a treasure.

The "abandoned" seasons of Agents of Shield and Agent Carter happened at the same time, when they were trying to tie in to the movies but it was becoming very clear that the movies would never acknowledge the series. Once AoS started trying to stand on its own it got much better. Agent Carter sadly never got that chance, mostly because it was much more limited in what it could do within the timeline they had to adhere to.

That said, the season 1 tie-in they did with Winter Soldier was wonderful and, in my opinion, saved the show.

But it was also the reason S1 dragged. There was a bunch of filler to avoid the big reveal.

No, lunchbox. It was the egg that came first, not the chicken.
