    Wtf.

    That’s insane. She’s always been “too hot” for Velma though.

    Something I’ve only really come to admire in retrospect is the depiction of the technological advancement of Tony’s Iron Man suits. I was looking at a “suit up” compilation on YouTube the other day and was struck by their organic development evident in the advancement of technology, from Iron Man’s clunky, multi-part armour in the truest sense of the word (looking positively mediaval compared to newer iterations) to the nanotech suit seen in Infinity War and, ultimately, Endgame. In a way, it is a metaphor for how far the franchise has come since its inception.

    For all its real and perceived faults, I really love this universe, and this is one of the many small things that make revisiting the older films worthwhile, no matter where you stand on the quality of certain entries.

    Black Widow next May, The Eternals in November, then for 2021, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in February, Dr Strange and the Multiverse of Madness in May, and Thor: Love and Thunder in November.

    Plus various Disney+ shows, and a new version of Blade, played by Mahershala Ali - not clear whether this is for a film or a show.

    Insane number of shows announced for Disney+, kinda more excited for them than the movies. Loki series, Scarlet Witch series and Hawkeye in particular. Given how the proper actors are reprising their roles, it kind of makes sense the Netflix shows go byebye, or the characters are just integrated into the MCU.

    Really excited for Wanda in the new Strange movie too... I may have a bit of a crush on Elizabeth Olsen lol

    Dunno what the Eternals is, but that cast...

    What's Shang-Chi btw? Never heard of it.

    EDIT: LOL ALMOST FORGOT! JANE FOSTER BACK FOR THOR 4! No idea how that's gonna play out. No GotG announcement, weirdly, so are they gonna be in Thor 4? (maybe Jane helps them find Gamora?) or something else?

    EDIT2: I... I thought this was a troll... but Natalie Portman aka Jane...is playing Fem!Thor...

    Don't worry, the comics are already doing something more abjectly ridiculous that Hollywood would love to see on the screen, and then everyone will act surprised again when they make a movie about it.

    The Master of Kung Fu in Marvel Comics. From all the changes they probably plan for him, you just need to be aware that he was created in 70-ties as superhero based on all these Kung Fu films that were getting popular at that time.

    They gave a surprising amount of information at SDCC. D23 will probably have all Eternals cast present. I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to announce at least 3 films of 2022 there. It's almost definitely going to be GotG3, Black Panther 2 and Captain Marvel 2.

    With that busy schedule there is no way for both X-Men and FF to be included before 2023 unless they decided to go in a different direction with them. In my opinion X-Men should be Disney+ show or even few shows instead of series of films. This would finally give it a necessary screen time to handle all fan favourite mutants and a budged to handle it. FF on the other hand is better as a film series.

    By the time this weekend ends, Endgame will be the highest-grossing film of all time finally getting the record from Avatar. Disney really wanted for that to happen.

    If female Thor happens, Taika Waititi will make it work in my opinion. And giving her powers was probably the only way for them to get Natalie Portman back. ;)
