Oh ok well the video is out there.
Got my ticket for Sunday morning
spoiler it if you don't mind, I won't be able to see this until it's on D+.
Kamala recruiting Kate Bishop is the clip I saw. Some people are saying that is at the end of the movie and not an after credit scene. There was also a rumor of an old X-Men character showing up after the credits but not sure if that's happening now.
I saw the Kate Bishop thing and hoped it was more than that. I like that character, but that's certainly not defining the coming landscape of the MCU. The other rumor would, of course.
Ya this last trailer made it seem like this was going to set up something huge so who knows. If you look carefully at the computer screen in the new trailer you can see the X-Men symbol when someone walks by. That is rumored to be someone special.
Have we heard anything about Thunderbolts recently
It got pushed back to the same month as Superman: Legacy.
One MCU movie in 2024, one that is probably batshit crazy, might be some good breathing room for MCU movies. Provided the filmmakers make good movies.
It’s probably for the best there’s only one next year. Let people reset.
KEVIN GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER MY BOY
If I believed in god, Loki would be my deity. Glorious Purpose indeed friend.
I very much enjoyed The Marvels. Certainly had a GOTG type cosmic vibe.
Not putting it in the really good MCU tier or anything, but it was definitely enjoyable.
Flowed really well (shortest MCU movie IIRC).
The three women had great chemistry, and Kamala is just one of the most delightful characters ever in the MCU. Same goes for her family. Finally gave Carol some depth too, and good god Brie (bonk).
A planet where the language is a musical seems right out of the James Gunn playbook. And the guy that can also talk normally is considered bilingual lol
re Fantastic Four: Marvel giving themselves only a year and some change to finish preproduction, film, and complete what will certainly be extensive post production effects work is not good.
One movie in 2024 is smart. Dumping four in 2025 means they have learned nothing.
I would push Cap 4 to May 2025, and Fantastic Four to November 2025 or May of 2026
I have really high hopes for thunderbolts since it’s being made by the guys that made “beef” on Netflix. I hope it gets weird
Word is the ending to Quantumania was going to be Scott and Hope stuck in the quantum realm then the post credits scene would be Cassie forming the Young Avengers. The studio decided to change it last minute because they didn’t want another movie ending with someone stuck in the quantum realm.
That would have been a much better ending, and I can't imagine anyone complaining about "another QR trap ending"
Still need to watch Beef. Heard it was pretty good
Really good and unique. Highly recommend
Not a spoiler, but Brie in a white tank top
I really enjoyed the Marvels
This is encouraging. We’re going tomorrow and I just kept seeing “meh” reviews.
Trying to find a time to take my daughter. May go tonight so I don't have to watch UF pathetically try to play football.
Yeah agreed. It was a solid movie and the run time was perfect. A few minor gripes but exceeded my expectations of Love and Thunder-esque. Very interesting to see where things go based off the last 15-20 minutes.
Just got out. Was enjoyable, hell I felt that it could've gone 15 more minutes. All three leading ladies had great chemistry.
- That 15 minutes could've gone into showing more of Carol destroying the Supreme Intelligence and the Kree falling into Civil War
- I thought Zawe Ashton was a good villain, that could've been great if given some more character development. I understood her motivation, she wasn't evil for the sake of being evil, she was doing what she needed to do to save her people.
- With that being said, when her character is about to fight, she does gets sadistically happy smiling or laughing. (not that I was attracted to that or anything!)
- Why do the Cosmic bands destroy her at the end when she used both, but not Kamala?
Overall 7/10 IMO
I think the problem is Blade - if that had worked out as planned, they could have released it in Oct 2024 for Halloween and then you have 3 exciting movies the following year.
Instead, it's been fucked by COVID, script rewrites, reshoots, and kept being pushed back further & further to the point where it's now interfering with other movies' schedules. Could end up being the biggest bomb in the MCU.
I won’t be surprised if it never sees the light of day
Thread title for Monday needs to be
The Marvels: “He’s bilingual!”
Well that was super fun, Brie fine as fuck, and Iman continues to be a delightful ray of sunshine in the MCU and I love every moment her family is on screen.
Spoiler: Questions and Thought
1) So Brie and Valkyrie def hooked up?
2) What happened to Kamala’s other bangle at the end?
3) Odd that both WV and Ms Marvel factored heavily into this movie but Secret Invasion was completely ignored
4) Planet Baliwood was great and I loved Kamala vibing the whole time
Just saw it and really enjoyed it. I thought the same as your last point here. It seemed really dumb to me and kind of anti-climactic. Thought the build to that moment and the characters involved deserved better in a variety of ways.
But, like I said, I really enjoyed it.
Super fun. Wasn’t life changing but it wasn’t supposed to be. Brie was scorching. Iman stole every scene, I don’t think she can ever do wrong in my book. Love her. Those 3 ladies were great together. Yes, it got a tiny bit dusty at some of those parts. LOVED the nerd nods, Kamala going through every one of Monica’s names (Pulsar, Lady Light, Monica Marvel, Spectrum) but there was never the Photon pay off which was weird. When Carol said it’s the Universal Weapon and Kamala said “ I would of called it something cool like a Cosmi-Rod” just brilliant, I squealed. Playing “Memories” while the flurkins were flurkining was hilarious, I was in tears, this director has the same sense of humor as me (I’m more or a Rum Tum Tugger fan though). Remember MIT friend zone Bruno discovered Kamala’s a mutant? That’s why she can use the Nega Bands with ease and they killed that Kree lady. Speaking of, I did not like her character or the actress, I thought she was really bad. Post credits were awesome, saw the bow and knew we were FINALLY getting the Young Avengers (even in the dark Hailee lights up the room). When she says “pizzas here” and the camera panned my kid SCREAMED out “ITS LUCKY!!!!” I wonder how they incorporate Speed and Wiccan and if they age up T’Challa Jr for it, also please give Hulkling a haircut. Beast was cool, wish they wouldn’t of revealed that with the last trailer but I understand them trying to drive up ticket sales.
The marketing campaign should’ve just been Brie in a white tank top for half the movie
Also don’t forget Brie’s other singing role in a comic book movie
First thing I thought of when she started singing
Definitely one that you can put on at midnight drunk on a Saturday and be entertained.
Kamala’s reaction to learning that Carol was in her house felt so authentic.
Felt like the director told Iman to act like when she first got hired by Marvel.
A very real critique
So are we just pretending Secret Invasion never happened (I know we wish it didn’t)? But the whole point was these million Skrulls were stuck on earth because there was no where else for them.,..,except the perfect planet where a whole colony of them are living. And Carol and Fury both already knew about it.
Agreed. Makes the show even more stupid.
Pretty sure when she unveiled her whole costume that Binary had both versions of her realities Nega Bands on so Photon can easily return
She looked amazing in every scene
Dying at Carol Damnvers
2 things I saw twitter scrolling
I guess in the Louisiana scene Carol was wearing the other Nega Band? I didn’t catch that.
Also, Brie is officially a Disney Princess: had a singing scene, has an animal sidekick, married to Prince Charming.
I’ve been in love with her since this movie
Very enjoyable movie.
