    Egerton said in an interview he’s had a discussion with Feige about joining the MCU but didn’t elaborate on which character. He got pretty bowed up for Blackbird and that was why he was in the wolverine rumor mill.

    It’s been rough. They were going to start shooting without a finished script.

    Directors are easily replaceable on MCU films.

    Coogler would’ve found that out on BP2 if not for his previous track record

    I keep seeing the script was very small and only had 2 actions scenes and that Mahershala is not very happy with it all.

    I know I'm in the minority in here but a lot of phase 4 has been subpar. I think a lot of it just has to do with the number of projects that have going at any one time.

    She Hulk was the first thing that I just decided I'm not going to watch. I tried and just didn't like it. So from now on if it's something that doesn't interest me I'll just skip it and I think I'll still be able to get the overall jist.

    I mean let's be honest. Most connections between shows or films is usually flimsy at best anyway.

    It had really good potential. Ended with a thud.

    haven’t rewatched any D+ show but Loki and Hawkeye are the only ones I’d revisit

    I regret to inform everyone that Moon Knight was at best mid, certainly not in the IM3 tier of delightfully joyful MCU viewing experiences.

    this phase was definitely underwhelming if you compare it to phase 3, but phase 1 was pretty meh too. the MCU didn't really reach the consistent quality we've come to expect until midway through phase 2 (CA:WS).

    I think they're planting a lot of seeds right now (and putting out a lot of content for their streaming platform in the process), but I think phase 5 is going to really pick up as far as pushing the overarching storyline.

    I hear you but Phase 1 had characters people actually cared about. Iron Man, Thor, Cap, etc.

    This phase is riddled with bit characters that no one really knows outside of the die hard fans.

    The issue is also that leading up to the team up movies everyone knew Cap would be the leader. With Chadwick dying it threw the whole phase into turmoil because I think he was the planned next Cap or unifying force.

    with the challenges of a global pandemic delays, characters no one really knows or connects with, that is why I think the phase suffers. Sure both were disjointed in terms of movies being more about character building but this phase lacks just so so much.

    Sure but why we do we have to go back? There's no reason these projects should be this average other than being rushed. Which is definitely what's happening.

    I think this is the issue for a lot of people...note everything that gets made is for everyone. There are a fuck ton of comic lines that I have no interest in. I get that, in some cases, that means you might miss a small story point because it's included in a credit scene or cameo or something. At that point, it's up to Feige and co to make sure consumers who don't want to gobble every second of content don't miss major things. If I miss a cameo or something that doesn't have a major effect on a larger storyline, I'm fine with that.

    My issue has been almost entirely with the writing. It hasn't been good in a lot of cases and downright terrible in some (Falcon and Winter Soldier).

    Wait…you thought the writing was crap in winter solider and Falcon?

    Also, inevitably, with this much content, there are going to be some misses. But again, that's the case with the subject material, too. As long as the movies are consistent(mostly the case), I'm really not interested in critiquing 40 shows, too. I've enjoyed some more than others but that's the case for all content.

    I think there's a combination of things that matter here. Phase one probably wasn't as high in term of quality as phase three, although some think IM1 and CA1 are top tier MCU movies (as well as Avengers 1, obviously) and would disagree with that. And I know the argument people make is that "no one knew where this was headed for sure until we got to Avengers" and whatnot.

    The difference is phase one gave us 4 title movie characters (IM, Cap, Thor, Hulk), and 3 periphery characters (Widow, Hawkeye, Fury) connected to them and we knew that they mattered. And we saw these tags and how they connected to the next movie/character. That meant that, even if the movie wasn't the greatest, you knew it was building towards... something. Right now, there's so much content coming out of Marvel in such a short period of time that it's hard to know who and what matters and how any of it connects to anything else in the universe. And if we don't know how much a character or story line matters to the overall plot, it puts more importance on the quality of the work in order to get invested. And while some of the stuff post-End Game has been awesome, some of it has been forgettable or worse. And that's part of the difficulty with putting all this stuff under one umbrella and telling your audience that it's all tied together.

    I don't know anyone who doesn't think the writing was bad in that.

    But you're right. The movies have been mostly fine. Black Widow was laughably bad and Thor wasn't very good either. But the rest have been okay.

    I don't think they're average as much as the stakes just aren't as high. you can't constantly have a Thanos-level threat in every movie. these shows seem average because most of the conflict is small in scale, but I think more than not they've been very entertaining.

    I think the other thing everyone needs to remember is that the property is now so successful they're branching out to a ton of different genres to try and make it approachable for a much larger audience and they're not just making content for their core franchise fans who just follow one thread through movies.

    For sure. But the ones that should have been home runs for me and what I like, some were misses.
