    great breakdown of those quotes and what it might mean going forward for the MCU.

    It's a silly thing but it's also pretty cool to see and appreciate how much care is going into the MCU vs. say the Dark Universe* or Alien Vs. Predator or the MonsterVerse.**

    *"The Dark Universe is a series of monster films that are being developed and distributed by Universal Pictures. The Dark Universe serves as rebooted versions of past monster films that take place in a shared universe."

    ...are is doing a lot of work there.

    **I'm not going after the low-hanging fruit attack of the DCU, at least they're trying.

    EDIT: I really thought we were going to get King Loki at the end because Kang was too obvious. I mean, the recap even pulls the quote from Mobius of "you're not a king, Loki". I thought that combined with the Kid Loki quote of
    Classic Loki: "We cannot change. We're broken, every version of us. Forever."
    Kid Loki: "And whenever one of us dares try to fix themselves, they are sent here to die!"
    would lead to King Loki because who else would want to prune so many ambitious Loki's?

    Further, why introduce not only a character you've never seen before but also the prime baddie in the last episode? But then they didn't introduce the prime baddie, they introduced a variant of him. Anyway, thought that was wild because those same arguments were brought up in WandaVision with who the bad guy might be and then it was wrong but this time the same thing happened and it was right.

    I really enjoyed the Loki finale, i felt Kang (are we calling him Kang yet?) was played fantastically, and it not just boiling into a big ol ight scene was a good idea. Very much looking forward to S2 and What If...

    Hey, i thought the Monster verse was doing quite well...at least i thought it was good, but i'm a big Godzilla fan so i'm probably a little biased

    Gotta agree with that Free Bacon review although the undertone felt disgusting to read, but he has some good points about being exhausted and that this movie is pretty much shoehorned in to give Johansson one last goodbye for the character and to tie into upcoming shows. I'm really looking forward to see Florence Pugh in the future and I enjoyed the soundtrack alot, I even tought that Taskmaster was really menacing and the fight scenes rocked. But overall this was one of the least enjoyable Marvel movies for me alongside Thor 1-2, Ant-Man 1-2 and Iron Man 2-3.

    And I totally forgot how much I dislike Ray Winstone.

    Finally (!!!) finished up re-watching all of the Marvel Netflix shows and I still, overall, like them.

    Still really dislike sanctimonious Trish.

    I do wish that Mary Walker (Iron Fist S2) would evolve into Typhoid Mary (pure speculation).
