Already said, but Scott Lang is far and away the most Mary-sue character in modern films.


Haven't seen captain marvel yet, but to assume she is some deus ex machina seems off, if there is one certainty in all of this it is that end game is not in fact the end game. When you include the Xverse they have announced they will be pulling into the MCU, there is like a dozen more movie dates already announced. This is not some over powered character dropped into the conclusion. This is Roberto ripping off the mustache in a soap opera, to reveal Jack has been present all along.

Super heroes are going to be physically strong characters. There are going to be a lot of really strong characters in the MCU. Every one of these characters faced setbacks in their own films and still aren't impossibly strong in Infinity War. Strange's powers are even explained because of the infinity stone he has - it is only taken away from him by somebody who has more infinity stones. Once it is taken away, he loses a lot of his strength.

Marvel seems to be afraid to show any flaw or weakness in Captain Marvel. It's weird. It's boring. She starts her film as incredibly strong, and ends it by being invincible.
Captain Marvel spoilers
Spoiler!


Basically Marvel wants her in the Universe for the next phase. If she wasnít introduced here she couldnít be introduced in the future. She isnít going to be Superman in Justice League. She likely has a significantly smaller role than either Cap or Ironman. They didnít vaporize Spider-Man, black panther, the GotG, Stange etc to bring in Marvel to clog up screen time. This will still be the last ride for this iteration of the Avengers.

Did you not notice the trailer has a beginning and end? Clear confirmation.

James Gunn re-instated on Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

The right decision IMO and probably should have never been fired to start with. Immediately owned up to the mistake, apologized, and didn't appear that there were any issues beyond those tweets.

That's awesome.

Still doing Suicide Squad too. That's the best possible outcome.

Good move. Good timing too. They have good PR with Captain Marvel and everyone is fully onboard the Endgame hype train.

A rare victory for 'common sense.'

I wouldn't be surprised if this was kind of the plan all along - always seemed a bit weird they never named a new director in the year since he was first removed.

Also think that Captain Marvel succeeding at the box office even though it had it's own Right-Wing attempt at highjacking the reviews of that film potentially helped them finalize the decision and decide to announce it now.

What are folks thoughts on the tv series coming to Amazon Prime, "The Boys"?

I loved the comic series, so will have to find some way to watch this show.

It would seem odd if that was the original plan, as it allowed Gunn to sign a contract with their rival. Great news to have Gunn back though, the more movies by him the better.

The latest Flash update is that WB wanted to go a lighter route which the directors also wanted. However Ezra Miller wanted a darker story so he and Grant Morrison wrote a script they are going to present to WB and WB will decide which direction to go. If they go the lighter route then Ezra Miller looks to be done as Flash.

I have the first 10-12 issues from when it was originally released. I really wanted to like it but as the series went along it just got gratuitous with trying to shock the reader. I love dark humour and offside jokes but it felt like Ennis was trying for shock more than substance.

I'll give the show a try because I've enjoyed Preacher.

Captain Marvel was good, but nothing special. Pretty formulaic. 7/10

I've been trying to piece together various events from the MCU in my head. After like 87 movies, i just cant keep them straight anymore.
