The Eagles are almost certainly gonna flame out...harder than last year. Chip Kelly's 10 year plan is working perfectly.

As an Eagles fan, I should throw a cup of beer at you and berate you for being wrong, but I'm too exhausted from yelling at management through the computer screen.

Fair enough. But the original station was an architectural jewel, and the new one is a hodgepodge of low ceilings, artificial light, and cheap, crumbling materials.
It's pretty depressing to see what the original Penn stations versus what we have today. And they tried to do the same thing to Grand Central too. Blah, no thanks, modern architecture really is quite terrible.
Now I think there is a lot of modern architecture that is beautiful. But Penn Station is not it.

It's like the big book of British smiles in the Simpsons, you need a worst case example to show the up and coming architecture students to show them what not to do.

So really, Penn Station is making the rest of the world a prettier place. Just not Penn Station.

Kudos for mentioning the Big Book of British Smiles. :)

I'm actually very curious what they'll do with Captain Marvel. They can't very well use her comics origin - since it spans decades and would require at least a movie focused on Mar-Vell. Unless they just allude to it in passing, which would be weird.
I'd love some acknowledgment of the Kree/Mar-Vell connection but I'm not sure how. Both the Captain Marvel mantle and Carol Danvers has such a long, complicated history. Maybe they will pull a Green Lantern and have a dying Mar-Vell give her the Nega-Bands.

They have been using the Inhumans and hinting at (or actually using?) the Kree, so it is possible to use something like that. Probably more of an "experimented on by Kree" than the actual original origin.

Sadly, they won't be able to use the "Got turned into half-Kree, then brain/power wiped by Rogue, then get cosmically powered by Brood experiments, then drain those powers away but still keep something like her old powers, which now seem to be back up to an weaker version of the Binary level" full storyline.

You're right, that is probably the easiest way around it. Plus, I forgot that she doesn't even have/need the Nega Bands.

Huh, I forgot about the Brood...

Thanks for the news. I'm happy there's no continuation of Abramsverse but I'm sad it's set in the past. I was hoping to see where the Federation, Klingons, etc. are post-DS9.

JJ has already stolen two of DD's villains. I hope they either create their own or go take from someone else's rogues gallery.

I'm assuming you mean Kilgrave and Nuke. Nuke may have had his first appearance in a Daredevil comic, but I wouldn't necessarily say that he "belongs" to Daredevil. He's also fought against Captain America and Wolverine (with the most appearances in Wolverine comics, I believe).

As for Kilgrave, he also got shared between DD and Spidey, although he's also turned up in in the Avengers and X-Men. But until Alias, he had never really been remotely as important a villain in any of those stories as he later became to Jessica (and by extension, Luke Cage).

Sometimes villains debut in one hero's title, but go on to become a more important villain for another hero. Daredevil's greatest nemesis is the Kingpin, but that character actually first appeared in Spider-Man titles, and didn't cross paths with the Man without Fear until Daredevil #170.

I see your point. The Marvel universe has changed so much in the last 10-15 years, especially with all the retcons they've done, like putting Nuke into Wolverine: Origins, that heroes and villains are no longer localized to their little neighborhood.

That being said, I love the concept of the classic rogues gallery, the villains being a big part of the overall mythos for the hero. Once you take away the guys that DD shares with Spider-Man, it leaves a small pool of cool villains (Typhoid Mary, Bullseye, Owl, etc.) and I'd like to see those guys stay in the DD universe, not shared out to others. Otherwise we're left with Angar the Sceamer and Stilt-Man and who wants that?

On a silly note, most Marvel villains die in the MCU so if we're going to have a classic DD villain like Death-Stalker or Typhoid Mary show up and get killed, I'd like it to be while fighting DD, not JJ or anyone else.

Yes, the shooting of the swordsman was in Raiders, and it was ad-libbed. The script called for a huge knock-down drag out fight, and Harrison was recovering from food poisoning, and felt like literal crap during shooting. He needed to get back to his trailer, and the last thing he wanted to do was another take of the fight, so he pulled the revolver, fired a blank, and the stunt man reacted. It was such a good shot they used that version, and moved the big fight to the airfield.

Wow, never heard that before.

MMCJawa wrote:

you know, and this is idle speculation that I don't think warrants a spoiler, but I have heard some speculation that they might bring in Typhoid Mary as a Jessica Jones villain, not as a Daredevil one. We know that we are getting a second season (eventually), and Jessica Jones just doesn't really have much of a roster of villains to pull from, unlike DD. Her telekinetic abilities fits in better with Jessica Jones, since she has already dealt with mind controller, and we know that Killgrave wasn't the only person that was experimented on in those trials, so her origin is even set up.

I think Matt has more than enough women in his life to cause complications without bringing Typhoid Mary into the mix.

And man think how noir it would be if one of Mary's personalities unknowingly hired Jessica to investigate the activities of another personality?

Blah, I hope not. JJ has already stolen two of DD's villains. I hope they either create their own or go take from someone else's rogues gallery.

I'll let you know when the Kickstarter page is ready for the public, but in the meantime, if you're so inclined, please spread the word and point folks to the Legendary Games website for information. We want to let everyone, especially parents, young gamers, and new gamers, know that Legendary Games is opening a door for the next generation of players. We've got some cool things in the works for our stretch goals, so I really hope this Kickstarter does well.

Sounds cool, I have a 7 y/o who seems to be getting interested in gaming.

I liked it, Spider-Man and Black Panther look great, especially Panther chasing down Bucky on the bike. I was excited to see Wanda battling Vision and wonder if that means any future storylines between them. I hope to see Wonder Man someday...

As always, if I don't specifically mention something, that means I hate it with the heat of a thousand exploding hyperboles.

So, since I didn't mention ice cream, or oxygen, or lactose-intolerant southpaws, or wombats, or garden gnomes, or the planet Neptune, or tantric sex rituals, just assume I have no love for any of those things.

I knew it. I knew you hated wombats. It all makes sense now.

Woke up pondering the similarities between the MCU Vision and the 616 character of Adam Warlock, as created beings who carry Infinity Stones and could be leading into Vision taking on that sort of role in the Infinity Gauntlet movies, and then found out that the theory was already all over the internets anyway...

Didn't the Collector have the cocoon that Warlock was created in (my AW knowledge is fuzzy) in his collection in GotG?

*shrug* I'll concede it's not always that, and that some people just simply don't enjoy the thing for one reason or another.

It's just... near impossible to actually discuss the subject when the primary reasons they give for disliking it are the primary reasons I enjoyed it. There's no common ground. Like for example Juda's post on the prior page - there's not a single word in that entire post I agreed with, but it's obviously a strongly-held personal view. How do you debate or discuss that? Everything s/he thought was bad, I thought was good; everything s/he thought was a flaw, I didn't notice or even approved of. The viewpoints are just so fundamentally opposite that the best you can do is just acknowledge the person's opinion exists and move on with discussion with people you see more eye-to-eye with.

Just as people come here to say how awesome the movie, I'm here to say how disappointing it was. I'm not trying to ruin it for anyone else (that's just plain silly), nor am I trying to change your mind. I even envy those who did love it, but it didn't make that grade for me. And it's just me sharing my opinion on that.

As for why did I see it? It's the flagship title of the MCU, the gathering of all the main heroes and the biggest advance on the overall plot. One has to see it just to know where the universe is going next.

Because?

Spoiler:
There were a ton of small things but my main issues were Ultron, Vision with the hammer and the Whedonisms in the story and dialogue. I hated Ultron's personality, I kept waiting for him to break into showtunes. He just didn't really convey any menace and never really backed his talk up up in battle. Vision with the hammer was a bummer because I thought they were going to do something cool with Cap since he had budged the hammer earlier. It ended up being a lazy plot device to show Vision is a good guy. Even that was spoiled further with the cheap joke where Vision just hands it to Thor at the HQ. And I don't care for Whedon's writing and sometimes his direction. Oh and why even put Von Strucker in if you're going to waste him like that. Stupid.
