    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    Aaron Taylor-Johnson played QS in the MCU films -- they definitely aren't touching any of the FoX-verse actors with a 3000 foot pole. RE: The conflicting theories of the Russos and Markus & McFeely, I think it's fine. My takeaway from the movie is that, within the context of the movie, they ALL did well. They established rules where they needed to and kept everything else vague. This means the audience can reach their own conclusions. I have my theory. I strongly believe in my theory. But the brilliant thing is that everyone can strongly believe in their theory, making the film somewhat endurable to scrutiny. My issue comes into play with the Russos and writers talking about their theories. I would've preferred them to just say, "Listen, we told the story we wanted to tell. Everything is within those three hours. Do YOU think Cap and Peg lived out their lives in an alternate timeline?" By putting it back to the audience, they can keep the movie protected. The people protecting the movie will be, ironically, the two groups of people arguing that their theory is the correct theory. Then again, by both parties taking opposing sides, I think we have a wonderful, yet infuriating scenario, where everyone feels like they're validated in what they think.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    Robert Pattinson is our new Batman, per Variety. I'm trying not to give him grief. I have literally not seen him in anything other than that one Harry Potter film. I've only seen clips of Twilight. Has he been doing anything interesting lately?

    Variety is reporting that Robb Stark, also known as Richard Madden, is in talks to portray Ikaris in Eternals.

    This. Heh, I get that we're jaded and painfully aware of plot devices, as we constantly deconstruct this stuff. But of all the plot devices, simply saying Captain Marvel is booked is quite simply thee most airtight and acceptable alibi in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She is literally thee superhero for numerous other planets. Who cares if Peter Parker has a situation with Mysterio?

    Love the new Spidey trailer! Also couldn't be higher on the MCU than I am now. Everyone's mileage will vary, I guess. The big three have had a stranglehold on the overall MCU narrative for a decade. Everyone else has been supporting. They have the star power. It's just a matter of constructing an overall character arc as compelling as Tony and Steve's has been.

    Markus and McFeely did an interview with the Times that is a great read -- they speak on a lot of their choices. For all of us nerds debating the time travel, they also speak on that. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/29/movies/avengers-endgame-questions-and-answers.html?fbclid=IwAR1qz_R_6u4i7mMU2i0PbA3dpJ95C9MrfA3B5rdNziUmqT9JVuaEjTPswdU

    [Spoilers] Episode 803 Discussion

    I can't help but feel like George laid out a pretty complex tapestry of exactly what the White Walkers were and their place in the books' mythology. And David and Dan were like, "That's so cool! Wanna know what's cooler? Arya. Stabbin' 'em."

    For all the people complaining about the AvengHers, I found the best answer for you.

    Okay, that's a gotcha.

    I don't think that was his point, though(?) He included "nasty" before alternate, which to me, specifically implicates that. But I could be wrong.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    That was never the premise. You're not focusing on the descriptor used by Ancient One. She never said alternates can't/shouldn't spin off. She said nasty alternate universes would spin off without the stones present. The Avengers weren't trying to stop splinters. They were trying to stop negative splinters. Cap returned Mjolnir because our Thor essentially stole it from that Thor. It would've been rude, otherwise.

    Was that really the point, though? It didn't matter whether she needed the help. She got the help. It was a symbolic gesture. It's holding the door open for someone who can just open the door themself. It's camaraderie and goodwill. To me, that was the point of the scene -- look at this network of incredible female characters. So much has been made of the fact that "Carol could've done this herself." She couldn't have because she didn't. Thanos managed to get the upper hand, regardless of how powerful she was, and without Stark, he would've snapped again.

    I'm so much better at fake science than real science, heh. But I'm totally willing to go with that -- if I'm interpreting you correctly. Like the Time Stone can speed up or slow down someone's specific place in the time stream, and in doing that, their existence can be changed -- i.e. Vision's death can be undone and he, himself, can be inserted back into the normal flow of time.

    The time stone seems to control the localized flow of time, but not allow for time travel. That's an interesting question, though. Maybe 5 years for the entire universe is too big a task...?
