3. Why does what the three of them do on their own Time matter to anyone, let alone Disney? ...



'Christian parents'/'family values' orgs looking for reasons to freak out and start talking shite about the Mouse and telling their followers not to spend dollars on movies, merch, parks, etc and boycott anyone carrying them.


It will never cease to amaze me that the USA is so unbelievably prudish AND so completely over the top over-sexualized at the exact same time.

You go to the UK or Europe and there's so much that would just be taboo in the States because of how puritanical they are about that stuff...We kind of ride the line in Canada being originally an offshoot of the Brits, but we can be prudish too...but never at the level of the USA heartland.

If my employer was paying me millions he could tell me anything.

But again, this isn't about what you or I want. This is about corporate logic. These are the people who'll happily burn down a rainforests or pay people subhuman wages but God forbid an offended tweet goes viral.

Throuples are completely wholesome and arguably more family friendly. Would you set your child on a two legged stool?

These last few posts reminded me of a criticism Patrick Willems made about how romantic relationships are presented in the MCU, apart from the occasional smooch, characters who are in a relationship are so weirdly celibate around each other.

The comics have decades of soap operas revolving around how the characters are not celibate, so one critique I have of the movies is how "turning off one of the main avenues of narrative tension and relatability" makes things way too same-y. We get the fight, friends, and funny without the fucking because the corporate overlords decided that area of life and the stories isn't able to be handled well by the audience.

I disagree with this because fan fiction is like 96% smashing characters into each other romantically and that is thriving these days.

I would argue this is one thing the DCEU has over the MCU, they are not afraid to address this. Yes, our characters are totally fucking. Bruce Wayne is shown having a one-night-stand in BvS, Superman and Lois are clearly enjoying nights of passion, Rick Flag and his girlfriend frequently have sex, Billy Batson uses his adult Shazam form to enter strip clubs. By contrast Tony Stark is only shown sleeping around in the first two Iron Man movies, but after Disney acquired Marvel he entered a boring monogamous relationship with Pepper Potts.

Theoretically, Trump could save the MCU by getting religious conservatives to let go of their prudishness. That would be one of his few positive accomplishments... so long as it doesn't avalanche into a religion of maximal promiscuity and no legal birth control in order to swell the ranks of ChrTrumpistian white nationalists.

Tend to agree with the above critiques. The Netflix shows were better about it than the movies by a pretty wide margin. The MCU even had the perfect opportunity to do away with the "Hulk's pants magically grow with him" cliche and get real on the big screen, and they blew it.

Hey BK, I was a bit bored by 1 as well, but 2 was pretty intriguing. You should give it a shot.

I thought Episode 1 was fantastic. They introduced the characters and the scenario rather quick, but it didnít feel rushed.

Starting episode 2 later today.

Watched Loki episodes 1 to 3 now.

Honestly, I'm enjoying it. Interesting premise and episode 3 in particular was really good fun. Tom Hiddlestone looks to be having a ball.
