MCU Topic

movies are cool. here is a place to talk about how cool they are. or maybe how much they suck, sometimes. like that fucking piece of shit 'mac and me'. worst fucking movie ever, a two-hour ad for fucking coca-cola.

Saw The Marvels today. It is a lot of fun.
Iman Vellani is just fun to watch - she's clearly having a blast.

It also felt heavily edited, leading to the 90 minute run time. I have a feeling most of what was cut was superfluous stuff and exposition that slowed the movie down.

The musical planet was highly unnecessary. Way too campy. There was no reason for it.

And the Flerkin infestation came out of nowhere, as if the writers couldn't figure out how to evacuate the ship, so they just threw this in. I expected a Tribble homage.

Why were only a handful of the Kree blue?

And the last scene and mid-credit scene were pretty fucking awesome.

Is it just me, or are they making this Johnathan Majors thing way more dramatic that it needs to be.

Just recast Kang. There are TONS of talented actors who could step into that role and literally nobody would flip out.
All this nonsense about hastily “pivoting” away from years worth of story prep and going with a different villain at the last moment seems like a ridiculously terrible decision.


David Oyelowo is Kang. Boom. Done.
John David Washington. Boom. Done.
John Boyega. Boom. Done.
Geoffrey Wright…
Or…wait for it.

Terrence Howard is Kang. Boom. Done.

I thought the guy that played The High Evolutionary on GotG3 could be retconned into a Kang variant.

Marvel is only releasing one movie this year. One.

Probably for the best.
While I've still generally enjoyed the last few movies, a bit of a break may be needed to refocus and bring in some cohesion.

Some eagle-eyed viewer noticed an issue of Secret Wars laying on the far left of the screen in that final shot of Wade laying on the ground.
I zoomed in. It’s the typeface logo of Hickman’s 2015 series.
