Good question. Marvel indicated that they were going to put some more focus on the cosmic side of things, so I could see them setting up a Secret Wars down the line once they get the rights to the Super Skrulls, who could be following someone other than Talos.
Thank you for doing this write-up! I definitely missed some of this stuff while watching the movie.
That is a great idea. I would love to see that.
Good to see you writing on here again! I always enjoy getting your take on the MCU movies/shows. You catch references I’ve missed and give me a fresh perspective. It’s fun!
Exactly. Which is why I (a white guy in his 30s) am not here to critique this movie or offer any kind of social commentary. My main fandom is the MCU, that this movie excited the hell out of me.
I really enjoyed this movie. My 90s teen heart was bursting from the music. I was beyond thrilled to hear Garbage in the background. They’re my favorite band and they deserve the extra exposure to a new audience, maybe new. :)
THANK YOU FOR NOTICING THAT TUNNEL ALSO LMAO
Good question. There is a lot of time to fill between Howard finding the Tesseract in the North Atlantic and Mar-Vell getting it in the 1980s. Also, there is a lot of time between Captain Marvel (1995) and Iron Man’s first rodeo in 2008.
I always love reading your work. Thank you!
The great unanswered question is how did Mar-Vell know about and get access to the tesseract? We know that Howard Stark fished it out of the Atlantic all those years ago but why would a Kree scientist know that it was on Earth, a backwater shithole of a world?
Carol Danvers has a Geocities webpage and it’s exactly as loud and wonderfully tacky as you think it is.
Let’s not pretend dorky Nathaniel wasn’t still unfairly gorgeous.
I love how both rom com and IRL Maya were all about keeping Nathaniel in line. Scolding him about kissing without consent, and saying “not aprops” to his bit at the end.
“fell for the Maya/Nathaniel pairing”
Alien: Blackout sounds great on paper. Take the grimy world of the films and boil the terror experience into a tense management game during which you direct survivors, lock doors, and watch for the alien on your motion tracker. Mixing real-time strategy and survival is a smart concept, but Alien: Blackout is a bit too…
