    Doubt that Samuel L. has read much if any of the Endgame script. Except if he has a couple lines somewhere at the end.

    The Dream Team of Feige/Markus/McFeely/Russos haven’t let us down yet.

    TheGrifter It's a trick. Get an axe.

    I think she’s stronger than Thor pre-Stormbreaker. I mean, he was able to go one-on-one with Thanos with the stones after getting it. I think I remember Feige saying she’s the most powerful when she’s introduced. That leaves some wiggle room for Thor’s power upgrade with Stormbreaker.

    I honestly think they’re going to take it from him before his next movie. He’s just too OP right now for a film not involving a Big Bad.

    I don’t think there is any chance he dies, by the way. Not when they just figured out his character two films ago. My dream scenario is they power him down a little he joins the Guardians.

    Yeah, Feige has built this universe/story for 10 years...he’s not just having CM swoop in and knock out Thanos.

    McKay has been a writer on both Ant-Man movies. Feige got the ok for the Galactus easter egg in Vice.

    Hopefully it’s just a disinformation campaign or taken weirdly out of context. If not that’s dumb.

    Am I the only person who thinks is kind of blah about CM being oh so powerful right out the gate and being #1 compared to everyone else? It really kind of makes me go meh about the whole thing. We’ve built up this who universe for 10 years and then boom, she’s super awesome and the only hope against Thanos? Just not really feeling it...

    I guess we will see how it plays out. It so far, I’m not really excited.

    Watched Age of Ultron last night for the first time in a long time. I liked it when it first came out, but that movie really doesn't hold up as well for me as many that came after it. Whedon did a great job with Avengers and putting it all together to get the ball rolling, but the improvement in quality from him to the Russos has been significant, IMO. At least comparing AoU to the Cap movies and IW.

    Ultron was made worse by IM3. Needed to start setup for him then. The jump to him hating humanity took 30secs of screen time

    Whedon sucked at writing Cap compared to Markus/McFeely.

    The "language" bit at the beginning of AoU is cringey.

    This is 100% what should have happened. Ultron was a weak villain because his backstory was created in basically 30 seconds. Plant his seeds in IM3 at least, and you get a better villain in AoU. Not to mention the fact IM3 was trash overall, but that’s a story for another day...

    Cap should have waited for everyone else to try to lift Mjolnir and leave the room, then show him lifting it easily and flipping it. Would have been amazing, and shown why Cap is Cap.

    But I get they wanted to save it for Vision later in the film.

    He is a combo of Jarvis and the Mind Stone. So in MCU terms it’s believable. And I liked Ultron being snarky as hell.

    I liked AoU, solid tier 2 for me and it eventually set up Civil War perfectly, though I doubt that was Whedon’s intention.

    But the seeds absolutely should’ve been planted in IM3. Marvel let RDJ and crew make the movie they wanted. Guessing that’s the least involved Feige has been since he took control of Marvel Studios. And it still made $1 billion.

    Those are my exact feelings on IM3.

    Definitely felt like a film Disney gave to RDJ to pay for all his success for them. He hired his friend to direct. It wasn’t in line with the MCU vision, and, while it did well financially, it wasn’t what they wanted long term with the vision of Feige.

    Now they have the money and power to tell RDJ to get in line with their overall plot line for the MCU or step aside.

    My fan fiction of IM3 premise should’ve been:

    - Stark and Banner as science bros. in the lab experimenting on Ultron program
    - The real Mandarin as the villain and still have extremis
    - Implement Ultron program on one of the Iron Legion bots
    - Bot goes rogue by the end of the movie
    - In AofU, Ultron steals the scepter from Von Strucker right before Avengers arrive in opening scene

    Also, originally ant man was supposed to come out before AoU. Plant the Ultron seeds in IM3, have Hank Pym water them in Ant Man, harvest that beautiful Ultron flower in AoU. Also should of had a post credit scene showing the ultron programming survived on a random pager or something somewhere. When I think of ultron I think of him coming back like 20 different times.

    If they go anything like the comics, then CM gets stomped just like any of the other heroes by Thanos.

    For the record, I don't see her beating him in a fight in End Game. Especially if Thanks actually has all his powers but had no reason to use them against the "weak" heroes in Infinity War. I still think the most likely outcome is Thanos doesn't die.

    Iron Man 3 could have been Civil War/Ragnorak tier with a coherent storyline and a director that wasn't just brought in as a favor to RDJ.

    But instead we got...Trevor the actor as fake Mandarin...smh.

    This is part of my problem ... they have built her up to be able to and she wasn’t that powerful in the comics. We have all this invested in the original avengers but it sounds like she is going to turn the tide? I mean, I get handing off to the next group for the next phase but come on, pay it off right in my opinion.

    Almost like they are trying to use a female as a ploy also to get a different group involved.

    Just my though but I was never a fanboy of the “female bad ass” from the video game era of when I was a kid so that may also have something to do with it.

    Thor was literally genetically bred by Odin to become the strongest Asgardian ever, capable of far surpassing even himself.

    I get why he was nerfed in the MCU since it wanted to keep things a bit less Dragon Ball Z ish tier power scaling being the focus. But I'm gonna be a bit peeved if that was their stance for 10 years then all of a sudden drop a Super Saiyan female Goku in Carol Danvers into the equation.

    To me, it has nothing to do with male/female or whatever. I just don’t want any “good guy” to be THAT powerful. That’s DC’s biggest issue - Really, no one can hang with Superman and it feels so forced every time they try to make him struggle.

    I hope no character is able to go toe-to-toe with Thanos (or even comes close). That ruins what the Avengers are supposed to be about - A group of flawed people coming together to stop a power that feels unstoppable. If the good guys have their own unstoppable power then it just falls totally flat and everything leading up to this movie feels like a waste.

    Um no. Just the fact that they are making it CM this late in the game to be the ultimate savior. Seems like they are grabbing at trying to get that value of an overly played craze.

    Almost like trying to show up DCs Wonder Woman. Something DC did right was had WW already in play and we knew she was a badass in the series. CM just shows up at the very end of this whole phase? You could almost consider it a reaction to how great WW did...

    Just my two cents. I may be overthinking it and it ends up I’m wrong but how it’s being presented is a bit offputting to me who has invested this much into the past 10 years for fucking CM to just show up and now they win. I wanted it to more be about the team coming together after Civil War to overtake Thanos.

    Again, maybe I’m wrong.
