I think the Loki one looks like a lot of fun. The Scarlet Witch one looks weird as hell, but seeing as it'll tie into the Multiverse of Madness, I think the less you know going in the better. Falcon & the Winter Soldier looks.. ok? Basically like a Captain America movie.. and it will be nice to see them flesh out who gets the Shield and why.
Yeah, I always thought the old timey sitcoms were a very strange direction. I know for a fact that the only person in my family that would “understand those references“ would be me (and I won’t likely get many of them). They better get right to the point quickly or I think you’re right that people will bail.
Yeah, I don’t see my wife/kids sticking with this for long enough for them to get to where they are going with this. It ain’t no Mando, that’s for sure. Love the unfavorable references to the working man/housewife dynamic of the early sitcoms too ... though they did poke fun of the “for the children” mantra... so jury’s still out on the political angle of the show I guess. So far I have to give it a meh, but I hear there’s a Brady Bunch type episode coming, so maybe it gets better?
Well I've really enjoyed the season.. it was weird as hell but still felt very Marvel. Hoping it goes out with a bang this week, looking forward to the more traditional Falcon & Winter Soldier later this month.
I was cool up until the witchcraft part. I don’t need my younger kids watching incantations in Latin and all that. So they‘re now saying there were witches in Salem? We started them after the witchy part and told them that Agatha was just some kind of powerful villain that captured Wanda.
I liked it pretty well. I feel like it gave Wanda/Vision the screen time that the movies did not. I get that she’s Scarlet Witch but her powers come from the stone (and not Satan) and don’t need to be “conjured.” I like that they kind of addressed that, and also like how they handle it for Dr. Strange (also stone powered).
Just finished watching Falcon and the Winter Soldier. It was okay. It was a missed opportunity in my opinion. Instead of really telling the characters’ stories in depth, they went wokeish. It was all Black Falcon and Black Captain America. I haven’t seen any numbers, but I have to wonder what the audience was before and after they went down that road... They OP’ed Falcon Cap and missed opportunities to further develop more interesting characters like Bucky and Zemo.
Yeah I mostly liked it.. but I agree the race stuff was a bit eyerolling. Hard to tell if I would have noticed it as much if all the real world BS wasn't going on.. as they did make some good points, and I do appreciate BlaCap saying people need to move on and make things better.. all this dwelling in the past isn't helping anyone.
The Flag Smashers were weak villain's.. I liked the Falcon/Bucky/Zemo stuff.. not sure if Sharon Carter will be interesting or not. US Agent/John Walker was pretty good too for his role.
It is cool seeing the world more post-blip.. weird and ironic how we just are coming out of our own covid blip of sorts too.
Loki looks super weird and super good.. I hope the new movies really knock it out of the park, as these shows are fun but they're not movie replacements...
I'm cautiously optimistic.. I know nothing about the eternals.. Kinda think it looks dumb, but Marvel has fooled me before so I'll go in open minded. Excited to finally see Black Widow and Loki soon though too.
Funny, I haven’t watched it yet, but a couple of my kids have. They both said it was “stupid.” Surprised me, but I told them to give it a chance since WandaVision started off pretty lame as well. Now I’m even more curious to watch since you liked it.
Not sure how excited I can get for this one. It should be good…….
My theory on prequels, you already know the character won’t die, get seriously hurt etc, so there is no real tension buildup. It was my issue with clone wars, aka their focus on the movie characters who we know their fates.
