    MCUniverse - Nick hath no Fury like an MRA troll

    Apparently he'll direct GotG after SS2. [ETA: Ninja'd by DitN!] And I'm glad Disney reversed heir decision on this. People write dumb stuff all the time and then realize it was dumb and change. That should count for something.

    Make Mine Captain Marvel! (SPOILERS)

    I figured the weird running was from having those heavy things on her forearms, throwing her off balance. But it was a minor nit pick.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    You just had to bump the thread. I actually haven't even thought about Rothfuss in many months... That's how little I wonder about book 3 these days.

    MCUniverse - Nick hath no Fury like an MRA troll

    Considering the X-Men are more underground heroes, it's not a huge stretch to have them unknown to the public at large. This is even true in the current continuity. Was the 80's Ant Man and Wasp unknown? Was Ironman really the first publicly known superhero? We'll soon see how much everyone knew about Capt Marvel in 90's. Easy to just hand wave it as Shield already knowing about mutants. Fury has probably been in contact with Xavier for years. Disney's Marvel can have their cake and eat it too.

    MCUniverse - Nick hath no Fury like an MRA troll

    I grew up reading Marvel comics (granted mostly X-Men with just a few scattered Avenger-related stuff here and there) and my first real exposure to her outside of her history with Rogue was the Superhero Squad cartoon about 10 years ago. I knew who she was, but not much outside general who. If Ironman was considered B-list when his first movie came out, we can put Capt Marvel as C-list (especially before her movie was announced). C-list isn't a slam on her character. Guardians were certainly C-list and Dr. Strange I'd put in the B- range if not C (in terms of popularity outside comic readers). That status didn't hurt those movies one bit.

    Dark Phoenix -- the FoX-Men finale

    TBH They can "port" over Reynolds as Deadpool without a hitch. He'll even lampshade it more blatantly than Ironman 2 lampshaded the new Rhodey. He'll point out that none of the X-Men look familiar to him, they'll all ignore him and new cast moves on.

    Dark Phoenix -- the FoX-Men finale

    This would've been a such great sucker punch to most movie viewers. Follow a young heroine for years and then BAM, she turns. Unfortunately, that pay off would be twice denuded given X3 and now X3(2). Of course, even without those movies, the news sites (or trailer...) would've spoiled the plot twist and the tension would've been removed, making it much like the Prequel Trilogy. But you're right, red snow. There are tons of villains they can mine from the comics. They've done a good job pulling out minor characters and adapting them. Leave DP alone. Go for something else.

    Aladdin Trailer Out

    Aw, HELL no. Kidding. Really not pro or con Smith as the genie. He could do well. Or not.

    Deadwood... the Film?

    Same. NOW I can get excited for this. I know I should be happy, but if only we could get Vorenus and Pullo back on the big screen too...
  13. Thank you for that, @3CityApache Also very glad to hear it wasn't too choppy.
  14. Not those 4. They were ok as foils. I was thinking of everyone else. Not sure why, but Uthred's band and other supporting characters stood out more this season for me.
  15. I enjoyed seasons 1 and 2, but this season just clicked for me. For some reason the side characters felt more well rounded or stood out. I really enjoyed every episode. I hope it gets picked up for a fourth season and they don't wait too long to release it. Though I'd rather wait 18 months and get season 3 level quality, than get it in 12 months and have it be just ok.
