    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    I wonder if they'll be a "directors cut" or somesuch - seemed like there was a LOT of characters that only got very cursory attention during the battle. Barely saw any of Drax, for example. Also, I was expecting more showdowns with the Children of Thanos.

    Pretty sure it's been acknowledged that her movie will be an origin story. Seems kinda backwards to do an origin story after you have the emotional aspect of her death....but I'm sure it will make $$$.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    One minor thing - how did the settler of New Asgard get there? Last we saw, Thanos had pretty much obliterated the Asgardian refugee ship, and Thor was rescued by the GotG. I presume any remaining survivors (Valkyrie, Korg, etc...) were huddled in some remnant of the refugee ship? Did Thor go get them after they went and cut off of Thanos' head? Or maybe between the end of IW and that mission to go kill Thanos (I think they said something like it had been 22 days since the snap...maybe in that time he went and rescued his people).

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    Yeah....the last several comments, and the competing "head canon" that people have to use to explain things is why feel this sense of disappointment, I think. Really wish they hadn't gone the time travel route.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    Two other random thoughts that just occurred to me, related to the TV side of the MCU - 1) I really enjoyed the cameo of Jarvis from "Agent Carter" 2) Again, with the 5 year jump - how will that affect "Agents of Shield". They've waited to start their next season, and I think most people assumed that was so they could wait for Endgame to play out - and then assuming everything was put back in order, "AoS" could pick back up. But now we know that the affects of the snap were not cleanly erased. So, will "AoS" take place during the 5 years where half the world was snapped...or will they jump ahead 5 years as well? I know that there has seemed to be a distancing between the TV side of things and the movie side of things, but even in the last few episodes of "AoS", they were referencing "Infinity War" (I think there was a throwaway line about "have you seen the craziness happening in NYC?")

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    Just saw it...still processing it. I did not like it as much as Infinity War. Even though we all knew it was coming...I still don't like the time travel stuff. Too many questions moving forward. I guess all of Peter Parker's classmates were snapped...since we see them all in the trailer for Spiderman 2? I haven't read the whole thread, but I'm sure people have brought up most of the issues. What about folks who did manage to move on, and did things like get remarried? Suddenly their 5-year gone spouse shows up. And then there's Cap - how far did he go back to reunite with Peggy? I guess to 1970, since that's where they ended up getting the Tesseract from? Did he just sit out everything in the last 50+ years? And Loki, and Gamora....

    Board games!

    The last thing I need is another game...but Amazon has the 10th anniversary edition of Notre Dame for 50% off. I played it like 12 years ago, and remember enjoying it...and you know...the whole Notre Dame thing...so I went ahead and picked it up...

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    Apparently, no, you did not know that. This is what you said - " Just like they waited for Sophie to turn legal, now it's Maisie's turn. Icky to say the least." You're implying that they specifically waited for Sophie to turn legal so they could show her naked, and "now it's Maisie's turn". And then you say it's "Icky", as if you feel like you're watching someone underaged - or that they just "turned legal".

    She didn't "just turn legal". She's 22 years old.

    Star Wars Thread: Don't Get Cocky

    So, we see BB-8, his new even smaller droid sidekick, and several shots of 3P0. But R2 is nowhere to be seen....

    MCUniverse: Cat Scratch Fever edition.

    No...according to wiki, Lashana Lynch is 31 years old.

    MCUniverse: Cat Scratch Fever edition.

    Yeah...typical progression is to make O-3 4 years after commissioning. So assuming she went to the academy, or otherwise was commissioned right after finishing college, she's 25-26 before she goes missing. And then she was missing what...6 years? So, she's 31-32 during the main setting of the movie in 1995. So, she's in her mid-50s in Endgame. I wonder if in future Capt. Marvel movies, they'll "age up" Maria Rambeau.

    Bad shows and movies you enjoy watching.

    Beastmaster What do I win?
  14. And then there's this line - "Whether any characters will cross over from The Walking Dead or Fear — in the same way Lennie James’ Morgan and Austin Amelio’s Dwight have recently moved from the first show to the second — remains to be seen." Wait...what? First I heard that Dwight was joining FTWD. I was wondering where he was this season on TWD.
