So I think Runaways is done for the season? Weird way to end the season if so.

Last two episodes were definitely an improvement, and I'm hopeful for next season.



At least they finally ran away!

Yeah, it was just a 10 episode run to start things off. No spoilerz, though, because I have yet to watch episodes 9-10. Wondering if there's gonna be a big twist kinda like there was in the comic at the end of volume 1.

So I don't want to say anything in case it's considered spoilers, but has anyone been keeping up on the candid photos from the set of Avengers 4?

I have no idea what's going on, but (without saying anything), it looks like some VERY interesting things could be happening in this movie.

Just googled them and... mindblown. Can't wait for Infinity War already.

I'm trying to stay spoiler-free, but something did sneak into my YT feed suggesting an alternate/mirror universe? like a picture of an old Robert Downey Jr.?

I hadn't heard the alternate universe theory, but definitely a possibility. I read mostly about time travel theories. At this point it's just people looking at pics and making stuff up, but it's really intriguing.

Finally saw Thor: Ragnarok. Maybe it's just me being a fan of the genre and used to the style, but I have to say that Marvel never misses a strike, it's yet another excellent and fun movie  :hat Sure, a movie called Ragnarok should have not been spent so much on an alien junkyard planet but in the overall plot all things clicked nicely together. Good thing I didn't see the trailers, caught in following the movie I didn't even realize Hulk was the monster Thor had to fight  :D

The comedy moments were slapstick more than in any other film, but I didn't mind them. Like at the end when Bruce Banner is about to jump on Fenrir and you totally see coming the scene of him arriving over him to fight as the Hulk, and instead he slams still not transformed on the bridge  :lol they were a nice change of pace, like also at the beginning when Thor says how heroes fight and nothing happens because he timed wrong the arrival of the hammer (which is probably a meta joke how only in movies you make the perfect quip at the exact perfect time).

Oh, and I think it's safe to say that Loki totally stole the Tesseract while he was going to get the crown at the end, mh?

Yeah, I thought the jokes fit the film very well.  The only thing I didn't think worked was just the overall scope of Asgard didn't seem big enough.  We're talking about an entire planet with an ancient race of beings.  And, yet, the population seems to be about the size of a small town, residing in the space of a neighborhood.  It just didn't feel like an entire civilization was being wiped out by Hela (with Surtur finishing the job).  As a result, the emotional stakes were far lower than they should have been, given the actual conflict of the film.  Somehow, it still mostly works despite that.  But that flaw bothers me.  They could easily have made the scope bigger without overly extending the film.  Just have Hela summon an army that helps her preliminarily take the capitol, and then she is able to go into the vaults to resurrect the rest of her army.  Then she goes on a tear, and we get a montage of death and destruction around the planet, with Asgardians fleeing and hiding in various places.  Then, at the end, have a small fleet of survivors escape from a few locations around the planet, instead of just one ship.  It (and the things they obviously have planned at the beginning of Infinity War) would still work, but we get a movie where the stakes are appropriately raised.

Never thought of that tbh...I always pictured the MCU Asgard as a massive single city on a flat earth type thing...like this..




Which kind of fits into the movie a bit better than a planetary scale civilization of billions.

To Bosk's point, the comics always made Asgard feel more like a city sized 'world', and the intro of Thor 1 (just watched it the other day) with Odin's soliloquy and the "tour" of Asgard to follow along certainly make it far less than a planet.  Good point though - and maybe it ended up on the cutting room floor - a couple minute montage showing her army raiding and pillaging the entire realm wouldn't have hurt the movie.

I the two of the iterations of the Ragnarok comics though, it is Surtur that does the majority of the destruction.

Yeah, I articulated that poorly.  Not that Asgard needs to be "massive."  But still, the scale just felt too small.  It felt too unpopulated.  And while I think Hela singlehandedly taking them out was supposed to make us feel dread at her obviously superior power, it just to me made it feel like Asgard was small and insignificant. 

Regarding Captain Marvel, I can't help but wonder if the green costume will be solely for the '90s setting of her movie, and when she presumably makes an appearance in the Infinity War films, she will get an update that is much more like the traditional look we are familiar with.

I'm in agreement that Asgard felt like it had too small a population. Sure, it's just one big city on the planet, but shouldn't it at least have 100's of thousands if not millions of people? Based on the crowd that evacuated, I'd guess the whole city had a population of a few thousand at most. Didn't seem like enough to me.

Looks cool.  Ant Man is the series that I'm least interested in... but I'll go see it in the theater for sure.

Why do I get the feeling that the use of shrink/enlarge 'zapping' is going to be used a lot for comic effect.  Putting a building on a roller suitcase?  Giant-sized Hello Kitty Pez?

It didn't really strike me as over the top (though, I haven't seen the movie since it was released).  I just get the sense it will be over the top this time around.  I don't think I mind when the comedic effect follows its use (eg, the "fuel" truck in Civil War that Ant Man thought was a water truck; the train-set), but if/when it's used almost solely for comedic effect... I think that's gonna bug me if it happens repeatedly.

Yes, pun fully intended.

Question:  Do you guys think Black Widow is a really popular character that needs her own film?

Every now and then, I run across articles that all basically say that Marvel MUST secretly have a Black Widow solo film in the works, because Girl Power! and because she is such a popular and in-demand character that the masses are all clamoring for this. 

I just stumbled on another one of those, so the question popped into my mind.  I always wonder at that statement because I have never seen/heard such clamoring from any masses.  I know for me, her opening solo scene in Avengers was AMAZING.  It struck a great balance with the humor and the awesomeness of just being a great fight scene.  But I've never felt the urge to see her front her own movie.  I thought it was cool that she got more screen time in The Winger Soldier.  A lot of it played like a Cap/Widow buddy movie.  And it worked really well.  But I also felt like that was pushing the limits in terms of what I want to see for screen time with her.  I feel like she got enough time in the sun with that one, and while I like her as a character, I think she fits just fine being part of the larger Avengers ensemble.  Am I wrong?

Well, you're not Stadler, so you're probably not wrong.



I actually mostly agree with you. I like Tasha a lot, but she does not need her own movie. Neither does Hawkeye. Maybe both together? Hm.

I think the clamoring for it is mostly a reaction to the awful....AWFUL marketing screw ups by Marvel in the past that cut her out of almost everything. If that had never happened, and if she weren't the only female at the time when Wonder Woman was announced, I doubt anyone would care as much.

I've never quite gotten all the calls for a solo Black Widow movie either. I'm sure it could be done well and I'm sure it will do fine financially. Personally, I think she's a fairly forgettable character compared to the other main superheros and is clearly a second tier character in the MCU.

I don't think a solo BW movie is a must, but I'd drop money to see it, especially if it was a prequel of sorts. I'd love to see her in her early assassin days, and her transformation to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Personally I don't believe the squeeky clean style of the MCU cinematic movies could even do a BW movie justice. Maybe a Netflix season of her assassin days would be more fitting and interesting.

But I agree, I never found her to be so interesting that she warrants a solo outing.

I agree as well, maybe a Hawkeye / Black Widow joint movie, but as an essentiall co-protagonist along with Captain America, it's already fine like that.

If there's not even the need for another Iron Man movie, with Tony Stark being another co-protagonist in Civil War and Spiderman Homecoming, I daresay we can live without a solo Black Window movie as well.
