    I saw this in the theaters with my best friend. We also left the theater for a "drink" when the giant monster comes in at the end. Was a little much for us nine-year-olds at the time.
    The screenplay was originally intended to be an animated film, but the film adaptation became live-action because of a contractual obligation.
    that might have been better, but it would have been mid-80s animation so probably not.

    Also the team that did Strange Magic should get another chance at an animated film. That was not a good film but man it was pretty.

    Speaking of Carnage:



    The little tagline says "assembled from the Spider-Man universe" so that's interesting. Like the Spider Buggy, the Spider-Man desk meme, the Daily Bugle logo that is also on the paper in the Carnage trailer. And is that Firestar from the Amazing Friends show?

    I don't think it's referring to the cinematic universe if that's what you're suggesting.

    Right, not just that but lots of things. I mean, it can't be a coincidence that it's using the bugle logo from the carnage movie, can it?

    Let's look at it another way... how many variations of the logo does Marvel currently use across its media? Just the one? Or is it a couple?

    I have no idea. I just thought it was a cool little touch, not a grand plan from Marvel or Lego.

    Here's the first teaser for Eternals.



    Hmm, well it certainly looks different.

    Not sure if it necessarily looks good or bad, it's just completely uncharted territory for me. I'll be curious to see what the reception of the film will be like and how it fits in with the greater MCU.

    Shang-Chi so far is the more exciting of the upcoming MCU films for me but Eternals definitely has me intrigued.

    ^^ I will give it a chance when it hits theatres, but even the full trailer is not raising my interest in this. The cast does nothing for me in the slightest way. On the other hand I like that this seems like a total different movie than any other MCU entry.

    Yet, this can't come soon enough:

    They finally gave What If...? a date and it's coming in August. It was listed as spring so I'm not sure what necessitated the move but whatever.

    I was thinking that the Marvel marketing team is probably busy as hell since they have movies and television this year and it's a lot of stuff. I guess having an entire year off helps though, maybe?

    also this made me chuckle:






    So that screenplay credit is weird. I don't think I've seen that before.

    Not only does this trailer make it look dull, but also boring. This is surprising since Marvel has always at least been able to make their trailers exciting.

    We've been watching MODOK and it's alright. little toO samey with the Robot Chicken stuff and humor. I get that irreverence is funny for some people but comparing things to something completely unrelated and making asinine comments for humor isn't that funny to me.

    There are some moments that stand out, like the fisting comment and MODOK's follow-up that was something like "I agree that you thought that sounded different to you than it does to me".

    finished MODOK, hated the ending. They built him up to be something and then ripped it away in the final moments of the show. That's just weak episode writing! You wrote a bad ending, Petey!

    After just 1 episode, Loki is my favorite of the 3 series so far. Incredibly well done, funny, and who would have thought we would get even more character development after being with this character for almost ten years. Cannot wait to see where this goes.

    No, darling young lady, you are; or you will. Sentiments!

    That was right in the feels, that first episode, and I was not expecting that. I'm loving it.

    Episode felt a little clunky with alot of exposition, but Hiddleston just knows how to act. He might even be the best actor in the MCU right now alongside Cumberbatch, so I do enjoy him getting a bit more to do with the character. Loved it and I am really psyched to see where this is going! Lots of possibilities!

    "I'm going to burn this place to the ground."
    "I'll show you where my desk is, you can start there."

    Theory time! Spoiler: Mobius told Loki that the very dangerous variant he is currently chasing is another Loki variant. My theory? That other Loki variant is the character Richard E. Grant is playing.

    saw an idea that the Spoiler: young kid was the other variant (OV) Loki in disguise.

    also as soon as I saw the devil I laughed and wondered if they're doing this on purpose now.

    I read that they wrote that in awhile ago before all the Mephisto theories came in with WandaVision. I still like to think it is a reference tho lol.

    Unpopular opinion: I’m not digging Loki so far at all. It’s overtly hokey in a Hitchhikers Guide kind of way which was never my thing. Hoping it takes a turn into a more Venture Bros like territory.

    The one scene I liked came near the end of the episode, where he’s reviewing what happened in Infinity War.

    This is the only place I've seen this discussed and it seems pretty interesting if true:

    https://www.joe.ie/movies-tv/taking-...de-loki-723704

    While that wasn't 100% worth the pay off for the majority of the episodes of either WandaVision or The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, some of those episodes did indeed feature an added sting in their respective tails.And so it is with Loki that we sat through the end credits, wondering if we'd get anything extra, but alas, no.

    However, what is interesting about the end credits of this particular series, is what is missing from those final frames.
