I agree about Falcon Caps suit. I think in action in looks fine but in various shots where you see Sam from the front he looks too bulky. Like he's wearing football pads.

Doesn't fit with the idea of a sleek flier.

And yes the Shield physics are wonky. Sometimes the shield, even thrown by a normal human, goes straight into material, through wood, plaster, stone. Other times it bounces off surfaces and people's heads with little damage. I guess you can handwave it by saying it's about how the characters throw it. It's all in the wrist.

Hard disagree on the shield thing.

Finished it last night. In general, I liked the Sam/Bucky/Walker/Isaiah storylines and bits. No complaints on any of those except for the usual "this is a Marvel show so we must suddenly fist-fight instead of talking/shooting" but hey you expect that in these sorts of things.

Sharon felt like an awkward inclusion to me and ultimately makes no sense

I dunno if I agree that the actor for Carly is/isn't a good actor. Her dialogue and scenes just don't fit the intent of the character. She's supposed to be the leader of the movement, but 90% of whenever the flagsmashers are talking about their situation or what they'll do next, it's Carly moping about their situation while her subordinates tell her what they should do next - should have flipped that around to have her being the one passionately rallying her mopey crew forward instead.

I kinda love it when D'rek unleashes her nerd wrath, as I knew she would here. Sorry innocent bystanders, but someone's gotta be the kindling.

Finished it. Liked it. Also didn't like Sam's suit. Did like Bucky's new hair though. New do, new you.

It will be interesting where they take Cap now considering the current climate around race in the US. It could get ham fisted, fast. I really hope they do it well.

I enjoyed Captain Lecture and The Winter Solider. I hope Bucky bangs out some rugrats with the sister and they shrimp happily ever after.

Russell Crowe will be in the next Thor movie as Zeus?! By Odin's Beard! Does that mean they will eventually be bringing Hercules to the MCU? Zounds!

No, he passed away before it was even written.

Ryan Coogler and Kevin Fiege have gone on record as saying they won't be replacing T'Challa. That only Chadwick will ever have been that character.

I think this means two things for BP: WAKANDA FOREVER

1. We will get some sort of early film sequence that shows or reports T'Challa's death in the MCU.
2. His sister Shuri will get the mantle of Black Panther in this film and going forward.

Shuri has already BEEN the BP in the comics when T'Challa was incapacitated, so my expectation is that the same will happen here, but the incapacitation will just be or progress to death making Shuri's role as Black Panther permanent.

And Letitia Wright is a WONDERFUL actor, and stole the show in most of her scenes...so it only make sense to make her BP going fwd.

Sidenote: The last and only MCU thing that Chadwick shot that we have not seen is his episode of Disney+ MARVEL: WHAT IF... animated show where The Ravagers pick up T'Challa as a child instead of Peter Quill, and T'Challa becomes Starlord.

Well, guys, in the category of "Disney gonna squeeze every bit of mileage out of the Marvel property" - tonights' NBA game on ESPN (Disney owned) will air the contest in something they are calling "Arena of Heroes."

Posted Image


I'm not sure of the specifics, but I imagine it will be like when Nickelodeon did the Super Bowl and added slime graphics and such. So for this Marvel tie-in we might see Thor's Hammer bop someone on the head when they commit a foul? dunno.

The grid explanation on the programming guide says: "The telecast will integrate elements from an original Marvel story and iconic characters including Iron Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Captain America throughout the live game, including 3D characters, custom graphics and animation packages."

[EDIT] Awwww man, I haven't seen Bird Boy and Bucky Winter GI Joe yet, and I think I just got spoiled the main thing out of that.

Spoiler

Is that true? Bummer that dropped on me like that. Oh well.

huh, they had an exclusive look at the series Loki during that NBA game. I'm sure one of you video hounds will find the clip and post it here.
The comedy was coming across strong and wasn't very "low-key" <<<<< see what I did there? Makes sense I suppose, he is the god of mischief, right? It has that one goof-ball actor who can be hit or miss in it.

It does all flow, Wandavision run, then the next week the making of, TFATWS run, then the next week the making of, and then you have to factor in the original release for BLACK WIDOW I think which was May 7 (now moved to July 9 and streaming same day with Premium Access), so my guess is that MARVEL: WHAT IF... animated show will be what runs between May 14th and Loki on June 11th, as shows like MS. MARVEL, and SHE-HULK and ARMOR WARS are all still shooting, or yet to be shot.

So yeah, there will be a week with nothing, and then I THINK WHAT IF....but I could be wrong, and we could have nothing till June 11th.

From what I watched, this was a big nothing burger. No cool graphics except the comic book-ization of player stats. There was this goofy Hero scoring formula based on points, rebounds, assists, blocks & steals. I think Draymond Green became the "arena champion" (or whatever they were calling it) because he booked a triple-double. The worst thing about was the very cringey discussion about the various Marvel super heroes over the course of the game. Hooboy, it was uncomfortable to listen to at times.

She's been anti-vaxxing on Twitter so seems to be trying to do herself out of a tent pole role.
