Agree on KOTCS... although in theory, the alien angle was something that Lucas and Spielberg originally loved because it harkened back to the old serial shows they grew up with and that was the genesis of it. But the execution fell short.

You know the supernatural and sci-fi parts of Indiana Jones has always been my least favorite part of the films. Going on an adventure to find historical artifacts and protect them from people who want to steal them for bad reasons (yeah I also appreciate the irony of that from a colonialism standpoint) was always… Read more
Man, that trailer for Hot Skull made no sense at all.
I’m criticizing him for the way he wrote it, putting the unverified report first and then her denial in parantheses as an after-thought.
So journalists should get to say whatever they want free of consequence regardless of how harmful or insulting it is? And I’m sure he had nothing whatsoever to do with the framing of the article or who was included or left out.
High Evolutionary is already in, played by Chukwudi Iwuji, and the big villain of GOTG 3.
I don’t think they want to even try to do that though. Homelander is very specific character, exploring a specific version of the evil Superman trope (and not even the same as the comic). So there is a lot of space for Hyperion to exist without “stepping on the toes” of Homelander, so to speak.

It would have been beyond bizarre not to acknowledge the massive fucking global disruption or to act as though the status quo was restored within a year. I think that continuity from different angles (which only affected a few of the films/shows anyway) was one of the greatest strengths of the phase.
After seeing BP2, I’m a little worried that they’re stepping away from the implications of the Blip, which should still be, like, the go-to reference establishing the substance of the ongoing narrative, that this isn’t just a bunch of episodic stuff that doesn’t affect the characters in the long term. Like, on the… Read more
