    That depends. If you are reasonable and make inferences based on previous Marvel movies in their choices then no. But if you want to be spoon fed stuff then yes.

    I have a question, just a strange thought. Where is thanos helmet? No where in the clips is he wearing it I think. I have never seen him in any cartoon or comic with out it.

    More serious answer from the directors.

    Also, while it was very cool seeing Peter in the battle, I just can't see Tony sending Peter on the front lines against thanos. So why is he so prevalent?

    What, they're going to tell another super soldier to turn around and go home when they're up against Thanos? He'll be an adult by that stage too I believe.

    I decided to go through and watch all the movies again. I'm on Thor: The Dark World now, I think I only saw this one once.

    I forgot how good The Incredible Hulk was. It's too bad Edward Norton couldn't stay as Banner, I like him more than his replacement.

    On the poster that shows thanos surrounded by the avengers, who are those little people beneath him, I don't recognize them. Can anyone identify them for me?

    The big dude amongst them looks like a guy who is in the Ragnarok second trailer for a second or two.

    Definite spoilers for the comics post 2013, potentially spoilers for the film. Basically a bunch of variously powered mass murderers who help Thanos out.

    We Finally Know How Hulu's 'Runaways' Will Fit Into The Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Basically, it is still set in the MCU, and things like Captain America are gonna be on the news or social media, but no possibility for crossovers.

    The runaways had a giant robotic frog as transport I think, while I doubt the MCU would have this I am hoping for a cool unique vehicles. They also had a dinosaur, which I am really hoping is true here.

    I just had an epic theory. For some reason I suspect the source of inhuman power, the terrigen crystals, is somehow linked to the celestials. I don't know why, just the whole scope and power of their abilities. Based on this idea I suggested that Peter quill mom may have been a dormant inhuman. The combination of that and ego DNA allowed him access to celestial powers. When ego attempted to ego form the planets of the universe, that explosion of matter reminded me of of the husks produced when an inhuman is exposed to the crystals.
    My idea is this what if the Kree discovered one of ego seed pods and used it to make terrigen crystals somehow. The might even had a Kree descendant of ego involved, it would be his genetic material spliced into humans to make Inhumans. Before this I wondered where the Kree could have got access to celestial material, why not the pieces scattered accross the galaxcy designed to integrate with all life.

    Ragnarok was solid.

    Weird, but solid.

    Much better than the second Thor

    Ragnarok was a very fun film - much in the same breath of Guardian's of the Galaxy. Chris Hemsworth is comedy gold.

    The humor and action was extremely entertaining, but I may have developed a crush on Cate Blanchett during the movie. (love the contrast to her old role by the way)

    And the end was just epic.
