    No one gave a shit about Iron Man before RDJ.

    It was a character people knew about.

    The difference in Phase 1 vs Phase 4 is that Phase 4 has a much bigger pool to play in.

    Phase 1 had only a half-dozen projects spread out across four heroes. Two Iron Man movies, a Cap movie, a Hulk movie, a Thor movie, and a team-up movie. Half of those were average films at best, but the good ones were great and the teamup was a novelty.

    Phase 4 has fifty times as many characters. Not all of them are interconnected. There's no big team up movie that's being built up (any time soon, not in this phase at least). And half the projects are average at best. The difference is being bombarded with multiple mediocre shows/movies and occasionally hit with a great one. Phase four is more exhausting. Phase three had a ton going on too but those projects were almost all good-to-great, and the build-up to Infinity War created a fever-pitch atmosphere.

    Phase 4 has just felt lethargic and wheel-spinny. It takes three movies and 2 TV shows to advance to the next step in the overall story whereas, in the past, it would take one or two movies tops.

    No one gave a shit about Iron Man before RDJ but everyone immediately gave a shit after RDJ, and made Iron Man 2 a bigger hit than the first one despite being a much worse movie.

    No one gave a shit about the Eternals before the movie came out...and people still don't. Why? The quality of the movie wasn't good enough to excite people.

    This isn't a "Marvel fatigue?!" comment, either. It's just an acknowledgment that Feige/Disney haven't handled like the expected and predictable come-down from Endgame (and the post-RDJ/Evans era) with their best work. Trying to reset the MCU, while also introducing a shit ton of new characters, AND pumping out almost nonstop content has resulted in diminished quality overall, leading to the worst reviews the MCU has gotten so far and lesser box office returns than initially projected.

    That said, Black Panther (assuming it's not a hot mess) will make bank and right the ship. Ant-Man 3, while not a big property, will have Kang and will feel like a proper "next step" in the big-picture storyline. It should be great. This year and last have been subpar, but things are about to turn around, I predict.

    It was a character Marvel still had rights to because no one gave enough of a shit about Iron Man to even buy him at a steep discount during Marvel’s near-brush with bankruptcy.

    Phase 4 has certainly had ups and downs but they’ve produced absolutely new superstars with Florence Pugh, Simu Liu, Tatiana (which we already knew), Iman…

    Gemma Chan can just not do anything and it’ll still be the greatest performance in MCU history.

    Have we heard any rumor about if they're addressing the 'how' of T'Challa's death?

    There are so many questions surrounding this movie still; they've done a pretty great job not revealing too much.

    Also some rumor this is going to be one of the longest non-teamup MCU movies.

    Confirmed my suspicion
    that Namor carries the spirit of a God, Quetzalcoatl, like BP and Moon Knight. His hate for the surface and namely Wakanda has to come from the fact that they built Wakanda and flourish off the very meteorite that sunk Atlantis.

    I don't think it's Atlantis. They are from some Aztec city.

    I think we've got a lot of upcoming storylines combining/jumping off here. With references to Man-Thing, Elsa Bloodstone(of the Blade, Moon Knight, Black Knight ilk), and Thunderbolts, where this story goes could be all over the place.

    I'm excited for the presentation style.

    yes, I just looked I guess it's just a short movie (listed as 54 minutes so probably more like 40 minutes of runtime).

    I thought it was a mini-series for some reason.
