Marvel Cinematic Universe - Sanity Prevails Spidey Back in MCU

One nice thing about all the MCU tv shows not starting until late next year is no need for me to get Disney + streaming service at launch this November. Can probably wait until spring of 2021 as Falcon+WS will be done and Loki/Wandavision would be coming out around that time.

I am probably going to go the torrent root. 

I can't justify getting a zillion different services.  With a ton of channels starting up their own private services, it is getting to be too much to see a small amount of content that I want to watch per channel.

I wonder how this is all going to play out in a few years.

I heard elsewhere that the What If series will be animated and I had the greatest Hope's for it, as the comics were some of the best weird and random thoughts that I can remember. Done well, the episodes of one off random stories could be awesome, just not sure how I feel about this being animated.

I think animation is the better way to go with the What If series.  It will offer the chance to really flip things around in ways that couldn't be done without a big movie budget.  I'm really interested to see what this series will hold.

I believe they said Saturday that it is set post-Endgame, but not much info on how that will work with Bettany. If it will be flashbacks like you said or some sort of multi-verse type thing as they said Wandavision will lead directly into Dr Strange 2.

Reportedly, the showed the Vision comic book by Tom King when this came up - so that appears to be the story

If the reports are true I'm hoping to go with the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ package, ditch DTVNow.  Not sure what to do with Netflix....

I am excited for all of this.  Movies and TV.  They also announced next season (7) is the last of Agents of Shield.  Season 6 is on now.

Sounds like Phase 5 will be BP2, CM2, Spidey, GOTG3 etc

Season 6 of Shield has been all over the place.  They may have walked down a rabbit hole they can't get out of but I am still enjoying it.

With that pack you mentioned, will you be getting Hulu Live with it as well or just regular Hulu?  That seems like a nice combo and I hear the prices may be good.

Am correct in saying that all of the MCU series are going to be more like minin series of ~6 episodes and then done?

The people running Shield already knew season 7 was going to be the last so I think they will end up tying this latest season together pretty well with the next (they were already in the middle of filming the final episode they said when they had their comic con panel last week.) Clark Gregg let it slip they were ending it after 7 in an interview he did for Captain Marvel 4 or 5 months ago so this weekend's announcement was just official confirmation.

Does anyone have any guesses on how they are going to handle the Eternals?  I don't know much about them outside of them being ancient beings that have protected earth through out the years, but I don't quite understand how they will explain them being absent while Thanos was dusting every one.

They're painted as being kind of above it all, basically treating human affairs like ants fighting with each other.  The snap may be the thing that gets them a little more involved with us "little people"

Yep

Animated is definitely the way to go with this one. IMO

I agree with this if done well and as a more adult level cartoon as opposed to one aimed at the preteen level kids. Imagine this is the thing with it involved in the actual phase 4 rollout, but just worry because I have high hopes for this.

As long as they do it right I don't care how long it takes.

They're going to release three movies in 2021.  Just two in 2020 but a lot of Disney + material.  That's quite a bit of content.

Don't know.  When they announced D+ the reports mentioned the package would be avail, waiting to see what they actually offer and the cost.  If D+ pricing is as good as reported, hopefully this package will be good too.  I enjoy Netflix but really got it for the Marvel stuff and since my daughter loves Disney, seems to make sense to go this route.

Agree with the uneven season 6.  Been some fun moments, been some odd wtf moments too.  I am enjoying too.  The previews for the season finale look good so I'm interested in where it goes.  Looks like they are really trying to tie in to previous seasons and create repercussions for past actions/adventures.  Oh and obviously keep Clark Gregg around.

Allegedly, Black Widow is filming scenes in my town this week. Crew commandeered our church parking lot yesterday and brought in a bunch of older model cars and trucks. Working under the code FIGARO, which is what was used for Infinity War.

Phase 4 movies seem to be about establishing new characters for the most part.  I do think though, that Black Panther will play a significant role in the upcoming Falcon and Winter Soldier show.

I know it wasn't popular but I went back and watched The Defenders on Netflix again.  I do like it.  I think its better then it gets credit for.  Sure some slow parts with Sigorney Weavers' character, but the coming together of the 4 characters from their individual series works for me.  But I like that sort of thing.  Its why I think I've moved Avengers up my rankings for the MCU.  Maybe not Ultron, but I think Avengers and Infinity War are my two faves.  

Def looking forward to the new D+ shows and hope they can bring back the Netflix characters at some point.

So Avengers 5 will be an all new cast of heroes you have not seen before.  Throw out ideas on who you would like to see on the team.  

Would be awesome to see Swordsman

She Hulk? Honestly would like a whole Hulk set of movies done right. 

I just want F4 and X-Men.

Like your ideas.  F4 should be a landmark of phase 5 - a lot of material to mine.  I think X-men could use some rest - two or so years should be right - and I would rest Magneto longer that that - I would go Hellfire Club.

I love the X-Men movies but will not be mad if I don't see X-Men until Phase 8... in 2032.

They do need a rest but I'm thinking more 2025 triumphant return. My youngest will be 8 then and I m hoping for some good X-Men movies by then.

Whenever Anna Paquin wants to reprise her role as Rogue as the true leader of the X-Men, fine, but not till 2028 at the earliest.

My favorite comic book characters aside from Thanos have yet to be done, or done right.

Galactus, Silver Surfer.

This would bring some new energy to the MCU for me.  Getting tired of the continued milking of this current story line.

I want her to be no where near the X-Men ever again. The Rogue I know was not an emo whiny brat.

Thanos and infinity stones are done. If they can get F4 established, we might get a proper silver surfer plot.

I'd agree with this...except I could see Hulk moving to She-Hulk so Fiege et al can correct the sins of the past with those horrible Hulk movies.  I think we may also see some install of the Young Avengers in Phase 5 as well.  With Kate Bishop coming to D+ on Hawkeye, as well as the Wanda/Vision show and Dr Strange 2 movie, I could see where SW/V's "kids" may come into play by Phase 5 as well.  

I'm still holding out hope for a good Norman Osborne villian that brings in the Dark Avengers and carries a more corporate takeover vs just being a Spidey only villian.

Maybe we'll see a Hawkeye led Thunderbolts as well?

She Hulk is the way they should have gone if they wanted to bring a strong, female character into the fold that the fans actually like. Female Thor kind of sucks and was introduced as an actual comic after the MCU got started. No one is wanting a female Thor. Every Marvel fan will cheer at She Hulk!

Honestly, I'm intrigued by She Thor for one reason only. Natalie Portman. She's an incredible actress. My biggest concern is the story not testing her acting abilities. If she pulls a Star Wars prequel performance, or Captain Marvel, then this will go into Thor Dark World territory. Oh, the other reason is, well, Marvel. Even the duds have been entertaining.

Corrected - but I personally hope they only have 1-2 callbacks to people we have seen.

Question still stands on who we want to see in the next one.  She Hulk makes a ton of sense cause she is less powerful than Hulk and a better fit in that way.  I also think Hercules may be a good call.

They need a Masters of Evil run.

My guess is that She Hulk has the same rights problems with Universal as Hulk does, which is why there's no Hulk or She Hulk movies planned.

It's just that their storytelling has been based on building up characters over multiple movies with character arcs and growth. She was written out 6 years ago and now she's going to be thrust back in and given the title of Thor in the course of one movie. Not sure how believable it will be.

Portman's a great actress, but she could fit in the palm of my hand. I hope they give her some Hulk-like CGI when she's supposed to be Thor.

Isn't phase 5 the sequels everyone was upset were not announced as phase 4? With hopefully some FF added in?

 

I hope the rumors of Namor in BP2 are true.  Would love Silver Surfer and Galactus done right.  FF too.

Heard Thanos might be back for an Annihilation storyline...not sure how their going to make that happen...web is rampant with rumors though

She-Hulk would be great.  I'm sure they'll get around to her

I'm beginning to think they'll never be able to capture the essence of Dr. Doom on screen.  Everyone that's tried has failed (on an epic scale)

If any of you haven't seen it, seek out the animated film Planet Hulk if you want to see a Hulk story done right

I have the feeling I'm going to see Dr. Strange Multiverse of Madness at least 4 times in theaters.

Perhaps, but there's nothing particularly "Budapestian" about our downtown area. So maybe it's somewhere else. I don't know exactly where the filming took place. 

FWIW, our town was also used for some of the Earth scenes in GotGv2.

Randomly found this on Netflix the other day while scrolling through options. The kids saw it and had to watch it so we did. A bit gory for a cartoon of that level, but we really enjoyed it. Now I get how so many have said Ragnorak was as close to a Planet Hulk as we would ever get. So much of Ragnorak came right from that cartoon.
