Its fucked up that the first in universe MCU musical is a Hamilton parody instead of a Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark parody

There should be a scene where the cast of the Rogers musical does a live performance on Letterman and makes everyone uncomfortable

That trailer was pretty freakin' good. How did Hawkeye turn from the worst Avenger to like the most interesting one? I can't wait.

Also, yeah I had to pause when I saw "Rogers: The Musical" because that's going to be amazing:

Oh yeah definitely feeling the inspiration from Matt Fraction's definitive Hawkeye run in that trailer.

Can't wait. Seeing Lucky the Pizza Dog and the Tracksuit Draculas brought a smile to my face.

This was the show that I was most excited for, and the trailer feels like it draws from the only source material worth using when it comes to Hawkeye. Hopefully we see some Dan Slott inspiration in the She-Hulk show when it comes!

Is there nothing airing between the end of What If and the start of Hawkeye? Or is Ms. Marvel in that period? It was supposed to be a 2021 show, but Hawkeye is airing from November 24 to December 29, so that's about the only time it could air unless it's delayed.

What If...? Ep 6:

Every time I think a certain episode was the last one Chadwick Boseman did he appears again. This one did seem to have 'finality' to it. Especially with that ending narration. I wonder if that was a rewrite. I wonder if the ending itself was rewritten to be more optimistic...

Also... Tony Stark knows Gundam? Weird, but okay.

One of the best episodes for sure. Really liked it a lot.

The multiverse hasn't been kind to Tony Stark.

Really hyped to see how all these multiverses intertwine with one another.

I think next episode we should be seeing Gamora.

Eh, 6 was fine...loved the robots and gundam reference, but the trajectory of the story just kinda meandered until fizzling out at the end. A whole lot of incompetence had to add up to let the story play out like it did.

Still, it was pretty amazing how much it was able to accomplish in just one episode's worth of time.

The first episode was giving me major deja vu since I had recently watched DC's Justice Society: World War II. It was an alright introduction to the show's concept, and few people will protest punching nazis. But the rest of the series has definitely been a step above it.

I really like how much the series can lean into the massive backlog of MCU movies. Feels like a nice reward for having viewed most of them. There's gonna be so much teasing of possibilities by the end you could probably fuel a dozen future movie plots.

On the other hand imagine the reaction to it if it came after some of these others. It almost had to be first because it was the most tame.

Very odd ending but great stuff otherwise. Black Panther is just always good.

Hey @scarletspeed7 , I have a comics question. A bunch of characters are relying on the we were told not to interfere crutch to explain not being around. Is this BS, or did some entity actually give this order to a bunch of people?

tbh if Captain Carter was placed in-between the better eps I probably would've been able to accept it for what it was, like "eh they can't all be greats"

as an intro it just really lowered expectation for the concept

Yeah, that's the gimmick of the Watchers. Over the years, they've changed the reason why from time to time. I think the best explanation comes from the Earth X trilogy, but it was sort-of a What If? story itself. In fact, the Watcher in this show is a Watcher that eventually, in comics, breaks the policy of non-interference and is ultimately banished from his people for it - in that instance, he helped the Fantastic Four protect the Earth from Galactus.

What If has been great so far. I love how snappy each episode feels. Yes, they rely on you already having familiarity with the source material but it's refreshing to get a full story in 25 minutes.

I thought there was only going to be 6 episodes but it's actually a 9 episode series, so woohoo for that!

So Marvel has just been releasing teaser after teaser for Shang Chi every day, but I have to admit, this newest one is the best 'trailer' they've had yet.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqDDUoF3Gh8

I think Marvel has a lot of confidence in this film.

I forgot to brag, my sister made this trailer.

Concerning What If...?, I think my thought stands along the lines of "Did this need to be made?"

Zombies, and I'd say the Doctor Strange episode amount to this. 2 straddles the line.

1 absolutely did not, 3 did not, and 6 was just a better version of 3's concept. I would adjust my rankings to have 4 >= 6 at this point, but 6 did a better send-off for Boseman that it makes me glad it's around.

Really, at this point, I'd take 2/4/5 and different concepts for episodes. Really, the thing I'd want the most is if these universes ACTUALLY tie in to the main MCU Earth.

Even though Sam is Cap now, I would be tickled if Peggy Carter came back to the mcu, but in Captain Carter form.

It's a really stupid article if you read it. Basically says "Shang Chi was a hit, but making a movie diverse isn't enough to make the movie a hit, since some movies (like Snake Eyes) were flops."

That would be awful. The worst choice they could make, though Captain Carter in the regular MCU would be neat.

I'll concur with the Hayley Atwell sentiment. I'd love to see more of her as Agent Carter. She was a straight up boss in that role, and giving her super soldier powers could be amazing if done in the MCU.
