I read yesterday that Olivia Colman is in talks to be involved in the Secret Invasion show.  Holy cow, that's another acting heavyweight for the MCU.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Ah, ok. I didn't catch that in the trailer. I only remember him as Ben Kingsley from IM3.

And there’s a Marvel One Shot where Slattery (Ben Kingsley’s character) is assassinated by a henchman for the real Mandarin for using the name.

Not assassinated, but broken out of jail by an undercover Ten Rings operative, taking him out to see "the real Mandarin" because he wants to speak to Trevor. If he isn't mentioned in Shang-Chi, I'll be a bit bummed, but I would understand if he isn't. The Marel One-Shots are all Canon, though, and I believe "All Hail The King" was the last one (sadly), and also featured Justin Hammer, who I hope returns in the Armor Wars series!

-Marc.

Are you sure? Thought I remember that there was a moment when he was going to take his picture but there was a gun in the camera? Now I have to go back and look at it again

I stand corrected. He is alive.

Hope he makes a cameo.

It would be fantastic just to see him for like 2 minutes just to have the Mandarin use his rings/bracelets of power to death-punch Trevor to make him pay for soiling his name.

Yeah, some googling unearthed that for me. I've not seen that. I need to check D+ tonight.  :tup

That one shot is not on D+. Harrumph.  :tdwn

I've somehow been completely unaware of these canonical Marvel One Shots, I'll have to check those out.

lol touche, I have just begun my 4k collection and haven't felt like double dipping on 4k upgrades of all the blurays just yet.

I like all the one shot films, shame they stopped doing them.

Here's the list

Actually, I had a senior moment where I was just thinking of all discs as DVDs and now I feel like an idiot. :loser: :facepalm:

But all mine are actually Blu-Ray and 6 of them are 4K. GOTG2, Homecoming, CM, IW, Endgame, and FFH.

AOU, Ant Man, and Civil War I have in 3D! (And yes, I have all the equipment to play it, but haven’t used it in forever)

Even though I owned most of Phase 3 as stand-alone BDs (mostly the Target Exclusive sets with bonus books), I also completed the four Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe box sets recently, and for the average price of about $50 per set, they're a steal.



Each set also comes with mini-posters for each film, and special art cards with art by Matt Ferguson.

And now, apparently Emilia Clarke has signed on to this project as well.  The Mother of Dragons comes to Marvel!

Rewatching the MCU starting with Iron Man. At 23:37 the group holding Tony Stark is called "the Ten Rings". I forget if that thread was ever picked up again (hence the rewatch), but I'm curious if Shang-Chi will have a callback here.

Yea. I’d say it’s all connected. I dunno if Shang Chi will directly call back anything from Iron Man but it’s the same group.

Yup.  And obviously referred to in IM3 (they used the Ten Rings logo for Trevor's "Mandarin" TV appearances).  And one of the potential buyers in Ant Man had a Ten Rings neck tat.  There may have been other subtle references as well.  The thread has definitely been there.

Thanks for those references, I suppose I'm speculating more on the specific connection between the Ten Rings in Shang-Chi and the group that kidnapped Tony Stark.

I don't think they knew where they were going with it back then, but I am sure they will make it connect.

Director for the upcoming Eternals movie just won the best director Oscar. I’d say that bodes well.


Has Marvel ever had a best director Oscar winner on their movie before?

Yea, Ryan Coogler got nominated too. But I do think this is a first winner. I hope she brought some of that talent to The Eternals.

Sadly, with Black Widow being pushed back from May to July, we are left a whole month with no new MCU content to talk about. I'm sure BW would've helped fill that gap between TFATWS and Loki, but now we have to wait. I think we got spoiled having TFATWS coming just 2 weeks after WandaVision.

Still no release dates for What If...?, Hawkeye (which just finished filming last week), and Ms. Marvel, the latter two of which I suspect will air between October and December. Other than those 3 series, we have 4 films this year for MCU content on the back half of 2021. Delays made everything become so stacked for the July 2021-July 2022 year, with 7 films releasing in 12 months' time, and probably 4 Disney+ series (as She-Hulk and Armor Wars are filming or will film soon, so I suspect those will release in the first half of 2022).

Looks like we got a few updated titles.

Black Panther 2 will be Wakanda Forever. And Captain Marvel 2 will be called “The Marvels”.

Exciting stuff!

Marvel just does everything a bazillion times better than everyone else. I still watch audience reaction vids of the 'On Your Left' scene just to relive the energy of that opening night, and it still gives me fucking chills every goddamn time.
