Just gonna go ahead and make the next one cause it's getting close. I assume Moonknight is the MCU thing we'll watch but the thread moves slow enough that it'll probably still be around for MoM.

Do you want someone in Excalibur outshining Captain Britain? Gotta think strategically here.

As far as this year's releases go I'm really excited for Multiverse of Madness. Not sure what to think about the D+ series but I've enjoyed all of them so far so looking for to see what they're like as well.

I'm a little disappointed that Strange 2 isn't going the route originally planned for it. The original director wanted to make it the MCU's first horror film, but I guess they decided to go another way and now it is being directed be Raimi.

well rumors have it that it is going to be "the scariest MCU film to date," but the original director for the first one signed on and wanted to do a horror movie, but that got nixed and he stepped down due to creative differences and then Raimi stepped in to direct.

Well Raimi has done some pretty good horror too so I wouldn't be surprised if there's still some scary stuff in there. I mean it wouldn't take much to get the title of scariest MCU film. I can't even really think of what the CURRENT scariest MCU film is.

I'm excited for Strange 2 and Thor 4, as well as Moon Knight and Secret Invasion. I expect I'll enjoy Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk too, but I don't have the hype for them yet. Worried about Black Panther 2.

Finally watched Hawkeye. That was the best MCU entry since Endgame and the best Disney+ offering by a mile. They pretty much nailed everything that was great about the Fraction run and made it work in context with the established continuity. It was the first Disney + show that didn't feel stretched out or rushed. Bring on Young/New Avengers.

Episodes 2 and 3 bordered on filler to me but in hindsight they may have contributed to the finale being as good as it was by establishing the character dynamics only for the rest of the series to turn them on their head. The slow burn might have been intentional.

That was a neat car chase, I'll give the episode that. I'm just going to assume the Tracksuits never really had a good opportunity to just shoot the car's tires though.

Also eh it was not so much the character dynamics being turned on their head, more just the plot in general I guess?

TBH Chris Stuckmann did say he felt the series started off slowly. Mostly just relaying what I thought at the time, but I still enjoyed the character dynamics and casting enough to stay interested and it wound up paying off.

So yeah maybe filler isn't a good term.

So I haven't watched any of Phase 4 yet (except WandaVision, which was brilliant).

Is there the makings of an overarching saga at all...a la the Inifinty Saga...or are the films/series pretty standalone thus far

I think all of them can be watched on their own perfectly fine. I mean, Eternals doesn't have any characters from prior movies unless I'm forgetting something.

But there is a lot of build up to an event.

Im still a bit confused by the ending of Spider-Man.

So Dr Strange messes up the spell because of Peter and people who know Peter Parker is Spider-Man in any universe start entering their universe. After Green Goblin breaks the containment case, he cant just undo the spell or cast a new one where everyone forgets Peter Parker is Spider-Man for some reason. What he can do is cast a spell so people forget who Peter Parker is all together (because presumably if no one knows Peter Parker then they cant know hes Spider-Man).

This works and sends people back because I guess they no longer know Peter Parker at all so they no longer know Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Sodoes that mean SM2 and SM3 are now going back to worlds where their friends and family now have no clue who they are? And why would it send SM2 and SM3 back? Is the implication that they also dont know who Peter Parker is anymore?

The magic at the end wasnt entirely clear to me.

yeahhhhh, I liked the movie a good bit but uh... Ikaris's ending is just so completely over-the-top silly and an unnecessary wrap-up in what was overall a rather slow-paced film with a serious tone.

Eternals beated.

I didn't hate it. I would say it did too much. Felt completely unnecessary to have both Deviants and the Emergence in the same film.

That said, I was hyped for Kit at the end. Bring in Captain Britain and him and let's get some good fucking MCU Britain.

I know I've heard criticism about Kro getting wasted by Angelina Jolie, but I was just glad for him to be done with because it wasn't building up to anything good and all the actual focus was on the inner-conflict with Ikaris.

like some people point out how blatantly misleading advertisements were showing Angelina x Kro scenes that were literally 2 seconds before her killing him but I just lol'd and moved on. I get the deviants were set up as a red herring but yeah it is a bit of a waste on that end of the concept.
