We need Dr Who in this universe so he can get Strange's help to
get Rose back from the parallel dimension


On the Tennant seasons, S3 with Martha, so if she comes back later don't ruin it

Saw Spider-Man FFH today. Enjoyed it a fair bit, I'd give it a Not as good as Spider-Verse out of 10.

Mysterio was pretty good, thought Gyllenhaal played the pre-heel stuff really well. Loved the Pete and MJ bits. Happy is so far out of Aunt May's league it's ridiculous. Also loved all the Easter eggs.

But my most favourite bits were the last 5 minutes and the mid-credits scene. Swinging through New York and full on J Jonah Jameson shouting about the Spider-Man menace. That's what a spidey film should all be about. And the fact it was Simmons :wub: Not sure on the post credits scene, don't have enough comic book knowledge to suggest where that might be taking the MCU. Might have to read around.

Finally saw FFH.

Really enjoyed it overall. Not as good as Homecoming for me but still very good. IJake Gyllenhaal was excellent-obviously if you know the Mysterio character you're expecting the twist, but as such, I enjoyed watching him play the pre-twist Mysterio and thought his shift after the reveal was great. He does insanity well. I did think Mysterio's background story, as well as his teams, could have been a bit better fleshed out but nonetheless he was a great version of the character-and a bit of different foe for the MCU.

The stuff with MJ and his classmates was all great too, they've pitched the tone perfectly for their version of Spider-Man.

It was good how Iron Man's death still hung over everything but the post blip reset seems a bit too quick. Everything is seemingly back to normal with some people just being a bit older. It would be far more chaotic in reality but I guess they're just drawing a line under it and will only make the odd reference-such as the teacher's comment about his wife pretending to blip, which was quite funny.

Do have to agree with Rex above me about the post credit swinging through NY sequence. As much as I enjoyed the film, that scene really made me wish the film had more classic Spider-Man bits, especially as he didn't spend that much of it in his suit. And especially with that Jonah Jameson cameo :wub:

Final sequence was interesting. I think we knew they were going to go the cosmic route for the future? I guess we'll find out more later this month when surely they'll be revealing their upcoming schedule.

Also, I'm not sure if it's been mentioned but you see a rebuilt Avenger's tower in NY during the end credit sequence so someone's taken it over...Oscorp? Or perhaps the Baxter Building?

Comic Con is this weekend actually so we should know more then. At the very least what movies are next year. It's only 90 minutes long though and apparently the Russo Brothers will be attending with the original Avengers cast, so I'm not sure how much of future projects will be shown with all of that going on.

  • Black Widow (currently filming) and probably Eternals (currently casting) movies. I think it will be 2 movies next year rather than 3 now that GotGv3 has been delayed
  • Cloak & Dagger/Runaways (crossover event?), Agents of SHIELD, Ghost Rider
  • Ultimate Alliance 3 launch and The Avengers cosplay game gameplay
  • I read something about the 90s X Men cartoon so maybe that's making a come back :wub:

I'm happy but also sad. With all these huge, megabudget action films he's doing it means less time for his smaller, more self-contained work.

Oh well!

Interestingly both Scarlett and Chris Pratt are getting a lot of heat on twitter. Chris apparently is associated with a homophobic church and wore a t shirt with a snake on it which annoyed twitter. Will be interesting to see how marvel handles both as apart from James Gunn they haven't had to do damage control.

Pratt's association isn't particularly new though...has something happened to trigger it?

He wore a t shirt with a snake on it and an American flag which is apparently bad as it said "don't step on me" or words to that affect. So threads appeared on twitter saying "look, I told you he was evil"

The flag is new to me but reading into it, it seems the issue is the far right groups have adopted the flag (including the KKK) and the connotations that brings.

Also worth pointing out the US Men’s football team and Metallica have used it previouly though.

I dunno, doesn’t seem that bad unless I’m missing something.

Such good news, Ragnarok is probably my favourite MCU movie.
