    Spoilers over

    Right, but what they didn't do was cast a different white woman to play a variant of Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers. They brought back a character we've already seen, only this time in a different role.

    I said this previously, but I think if Feige wanted he could have just brought back the Reed from the Tim Story movies. It's not like they were received any better than the horrible Inhumans show. In fact they were better than that show, and yet they still they brought back Anson Mount to play Black Bolt.

    Meanwhile, they cast Krasinski as Reed, making him the only "new" actor in the Illuminati.

    Seems like a pretty clear tell, but there's no way to know till we get more concrete information. I expect F4 to come out in 2024, either July or November, so we should be getting something soon.

    I know Feige had a ton of issues with the head of Marvel TV and the guy who was in charge of Inhumans. Must of been therapeutic to kill Blackbolt off that way.

    I don't see why they would put him in that role in this movie without knowing he's playing that role in the future. I don't see what they gain from that if they cast someone else in the role going forward. Then again, the Quicksilver thing from Wanda Vision happened so maybe they're going to do that kind of thing now to mess with fan expectations.

    Even then, the Quicksilver actor had already been in the movies before. That's why it was a fan expectation.

    I don't see Krasinski taking the extended cameo part in DS2 without at least being in negotiations to take over the role properly in the future. He's got a movie he's starring/directing in coming out next year and the rest of his slate is open. I'd put the odds on him being the guy at greater than 50%

    The scenes from the first act of them fighting on the edges of buildings way up in the air felt like Spider-Man 1/2 callbacks to me, nostalgia’ed hard during that

    Take it for what it's worth, but some sites are starting to rumble that Bryce Dallas Howard might be the F4 director, Krasinski back as Reed, both will co-produce, and Howard might also star as Sue Storm.

    BDH directed some great episodes of Mandalorian and Book of Boba Fett, and really seems to have a visually interesting style. I wouldn't hate the choice

    Somewhere between "around Reed's age" and "about ten years younger than Reed"

    I feel like Krasinski played Reed all wrong. Though I’m def open to Feige and co modernizing and updating characters.

    On Strange - thought it was pretty fine. Wish the movies in phase 4 connected a little better. The throwaway lines about random characters in other movies/shows don’t do it for me.

    Yea no thanks on her playing sue, but her boba fett episode was great.

    if krasinski is the long term reed, I’m going to be kind of bummed if Emily Blount isn’t sue, honestly

    yeah I'm more excited to see her do a big budget movie than I am to see her act. She's never been that great of an actress, imo. Her best work was that one episode of Black Mirror

    Yeah Blunt would be good, she was smoking in edge of tomorrow.

    also as far as Krasinski is concerned, who knows what Fiege is planning. He def loves to fuck with the internet like with the Quiksilver and Mephisto stuff.

    I enjoyed it.

    Cool aside. My eldest daughter shares the name with the young Latina in the movie Xochitl (pronounced Sochi) it’s short for Xochimilco. It’s a Nahuatl (Aztec) for wild flowers. I love the name but boy did she get crap when she was young from ignorant assholes who thought it was a “made up name”.
