I say to Disney what I said to CBS: trying to leverage one or two shows I like into yet another subscription mostly for stuff I have no interest in isn’t going to encourage me to give them my money. It’s going to encourage me to find their content through other means, which isn’t hard.

Also, any ma fine biologist can tell you they’ve seen sharks vs sea lions.  And how that ends for the food... err, sea lions.

The crossover my inner fanboy really wants doesn’t actually seem very hard to me beucase Spider-Man wers a full face mask and there’s no reason Daredevil needs to know his secret identity. Spidey’s mostly computer generated in action, and do we really think Tom Holland wouldn’t be happy to do a day or two in an ADR

I’ve met so vanishingly few genuinely good people who give any thought to what they say and how it might affect others, yet have to admit that they’re sometimes a dick, compared the number of ignorant and thoughtless douchebags who really just don’t give a fuck about the consequences of their actions, but try to cover

Too true that people aren’t going to wait. Why did they move things (almost) into sync? Because the audience proved that they can and will simply steal any media that’s arbitrarily withheld from them.

It’s been a while, but we used to wait a year. A YEAR.

Just tagging my own comment to say that it was just as I feared.

I think I remember that as well, but there’s no wa... oh, well. I’ll just have to rewatch all the Marvel films from Avengers on. Le Sigh.

every one of those “blueprints” ALSO have significant impacts on firearm ownership by non-criminals.

almost nothing in this trailer screams Marvel, comics books, or anything other than a generic “man with guns” revenge story.

I really hope the Resistance has a backup of K2SO lying around somewhere.

I, too, am really curious about how the Sekovia Accords will impact the MCU outside of the one pivotal movie in which they’re depicted as a massive worldwide change to the status quo. But so far... nothing.

27th and Park South should be imagining seeing Avengers tower right behind the Metlife building as we walk along Park Ave.

I’d offer three examples of different approaches to great fantasy worldbuilding inspired by non-European cultures:

“It’s a valid intro method that eases the players into a setting alien to them” is very true, but also incredibly played out by now. This device is used in virtually every American TV show or movie set in another culture.

Anytime something dramatic starts to happen, which happens with almost every character, it nearly always pays off with a joke or action beat instead of emotional impact.

I’ve tried to watch it with people and they almost invariable get bored and wander off to do other things.

Fair points. I often think that had Firefly run its natural course, the much more interesting thing than eventually killing Wash would have been to eventually kill River. “Oh, FUCK... what does the series center around now?” Or Book. “How are these rudderless misanthropes and malcontents going to credibly avoid

Anyone who missed that JJ’s reluctance to kill stood on multiple foundations doesn’t just have a different interpretation: they missed very clear and intentional plot and character elements. I’m cool calling that more “wrong” than “different”.
