    Some CGI artists may die to finish this in three months, but it's a sacrifice Marvel is willing to make.

    At which sizeable and already involved target audience are they actually aiming because I can't think of a group, that is going to watch this.

    I didn't feel addressed at all, and after being tricked by Moon Knight I really don't feel like giving it a try.

    I see potential for a fanbase crossover with dudes who thirsted after Lady Dimitrescu

    Wandavision is not required.

    None of us who went to see it had watched it.

    I came away from it with mostly the same thoughts, and haven't seen a single episode.


    Maybe a general, incredibly basic knowledge of why Scarlet Witch is so stupidly broken in he comics would help? That's all I knew. Totally surface level.

    They explain enough in the movie.

    Just watched Multiverse of Madness. My main takeaways:
    I've never seen a movie that needed a "Previously on the Marvel Cinematic Universe" section before the movie. To get the full context of what was going on, you needed to have seen:
    - The Infinity War and Endgame movies, as well as any related movies leading up to them (Wanda killing Vision, Thanos' snap, Strange's decision to allow for the snap, etc.),
    - The previous Dr. Strange movie (his origins, obviously, as well as who Christine, Wong, and Mordo are)
    - Spider-Man: No Way Home (why Dr. Strange isn't the Sorcerer Supreme anymore)
    - Wandavision (who Wanda's kids are, how they came about, how they lost them)
    - Possibly Loki (why the Multiverse hasn't been a thing until now) or Spider-Man: Far From Home
    - Season 4 of Agents of SHIELD (the Darkhold's original appearance)
    - Inhumans (Black Bolt)
    - Any of the Fantastic Four movies
    - Any of the Xmen movies with Patrick Stewart
    - Potentially others.

    Granted, you don't need to have seen all of them to get what was going on, but the number of tie-ins the movie had is staggering. Hell, the bit where Strange is running down the hallway towards America and Christine and all you see is a shadow and some noises made me think we were going to see that alien cat from Captain Marvel show up. At that point it wouldn't have phased me.

    That being said, I enjoyed the movie. No cinematic masterpiece, but it was enjoyable. Taking advantage of the anti-plot armor that alternate universe versions of characters typically have made this movie stray closer to an M rating than you'd typically see in Marvel, what with all the gore. Also, the bit where Strange possessed his own corpse and was flying around with a cape made of trapped demonic spirits was probably the most metal thing I've seen in the last year.

    MCU is a lot better with their villains these days, but it could go either way.

    I'm conflicted about the Zeus scene. It's funny, but at the same time everyone is complaining about double standards these days and I have a rule that if the scene wouldn't pass done by the other gender it probably shouldn't be included.

    Well, when the character you're adapting is "Gorr the God Butcher" I feel like a bit of kill all ghods is inevitable. What's more important than the end goal is how they sell his backstory and do his dialogue. Which isn't to say that he will be good, just that he could be. I did like what visuals we got from the trailer.

    It’ll be fun to see Christian Bale in something again. He’s been pretty quiet in recent years. Dude can act.

    Ms. Marvel's first episode was actually shockingly great. No idea where it's going but yeah. Fun with a side of fun.

    See if you can spot the "That's America's ass" merch.
