I prefer the bearded dude from the whatever that thing was before.

I seriously loved how he grabbed Bucky's arm without any effort, something that Cap can't do, and was amazed at the tech, while Bucky was staring at him in amazement :D

I'm not sure of the internet hate over the Banner/Romanov scenes in Age of Ultron would allow that to happen.

Why is there hate?

Sovereign Court

Yeah, I'm definitely dropping the series now. Completely. Forever.

Agreed. Her not being the assistant clears things up nicely.

Also, Out of all the characters on that show, she was the one I REALLY won't miss at all. She had a few good heartfelt scenes... but I abhor arrogant people and she was at the top of that list.

Worse yet, people seemed to admire her for being a jerk all the time.

The idea that Kara has outgrown her? I'm all for that.

She pulled it off well, plus she has EVERY reason to be arrogant as much as she wants.

I liked the finale pretty much. I even thought that the rallying the city to produce enough hope and positive emotions to counter Darhk wasn't horrible, even though that trope is often overdone. It was set up as the way to counter his magic earlier, and just needed to be scaled up to deal with the vast increase in power Darhk had.

I was also pretty happy that things ended on a stable note. No horribleness at the last minute, no big twist setting things up for next season, just a nice ending and reward for characters who had been through a pretty horrible year. While I think we'll see several of them again, I think it will also be good to shrink the team down again to allow for new characters to develop without becoming too crowded.

Next year is the last of the flashback period of Oliver's life. I wonder what they'll do to replace that in S6.

I guess getting flashbacks from the first season.

Just because R'hlor can grant/teach magic doesn't mean its a god ray.
Indeed; according to both Jon Snow and Beric Dondarrion there's no next world, just oblivion. From what I remember of season 3 Melisandre had specific question for Dondarrion about meeting the Lord of Light, and he's all, "There is no Lord of light, only blackness."
I'm personally an atheist, but within the show....maybe a god can see into the future enough to know that they were going to be brought back to life, and would therefore never take them to whatever afterlife might exist.

I think it is strongly implied that gods don't exist (the void thing) and that the casters cast magic on the strength of their faith alone.

They should really make shackled city, age of worms or savage tide into movies. Or into mini series.

Here is the teaser trailer

Aside from not showing us anything except the top of Emma Watson's face and some pretty parts of the castle. Dunno. I mean Emma's got the chops, that's for sure.

With season 2 featuring the Justice Society I might be reeled back in - provided they can tone the stupids down. I left feeling that the amount of plot induced stupidity required for one episode if Legends was the same needed for 2 episodes of Flash AND Arrow. I can understand a little, but when I start to question the base competence of every cast member it's too much.

Well their stupid was explained by the occulus and the time masters manipulating them.

Metahumans all over Central City. Havoc and destruction all over the news. Not a single sign of the military. They were all over the place in the first season chasing after metahumans. You'd think maybe the mayor would put in a call to the President and ask for some help.

I also really wish the end of the episode hadn't been Barry just standing there and watching it happen. He should have done something. Tried to rush Zoom. Tried to take him out before it happened. He knows Zoom is a psychopath. You can't appeal to his better nature. He doesn't have one.

Sometimes you just freeze no matter who you are.

Maybe this has been happening all along and I just missed it, but now that I've noticed it, it's driving me nuts. They do the Star Trek thing where the science character spills out some pseudo-science gobbledygook followed by someone else responding with a poorly constructed analogy to explain it. It just feels like they don't think we're smart enough to get it. I noticed it 3-4 episodes ago, and it's been in every episode since.

Some people are actually that stupid and the pseudosience gobbledygook (which is pretty spot on btw) does fly right over their heads.

I'm curious - but Fallout 4 is already a big enough time sink for me.

You obviously recommend this game, though, so I've been looking at it.

Still playing that?

Yep. I haven't finished the Main Quest yet, either. I keep starting new characters every time they add something new. lol

I did the same thing in Skyrim. I had over 1000 hours in Skyrim, probably about 700 before I ever completed the main story.

I find their storylines kind of meh. It's all the other stuff you discover that keeps me going!

Heh, I have 24 days of gameplay in Witcher 3. And now I've installed Hearts of Stone.

AZ - good thought, I would expect that might happen.

I liked that last night's episode showed how CA: Civil War will be impacting the rest of the MCU for a while. I expect the accords won't be going away anytime soon, and could pop up in the Netflix series as well. I wonder if it will be a major plot point for the spinoff Marvel's Most Wanted, with Bobbi and Hunter helping enhanced beings who don't want to register.

I was torn on the crossover. While watching Civil War, I was surprised how UNLIKE the comic, the Accord wasn't about ALL metahumans. It was about leashing the Avengers and putting them back under government control.

I was wondering all week how SHIELD would reference it, because people like Spider-man didn't actually seem affected. They weren't referencing any disasters that weren't strictly Avenger Related.

Then this episode starts up, and they're back to registering every metahuman they can get their hands on...

Frankly THAT kind of crappy writing/planning is what ruined the original miniseries. One issue said the heroes could retire... the next issue had SHIELD breaking down doors at midnight with 'Cape-killer' suits...

Did you read the entire accords? Because as I remember the draft was mighty thick.

Also, he's not supposed to create Ultron or snap under pressure all the time. At this point I'm surprised that the MCU didn't have him hit Pepper too, just to drive home the fact that they've basically turned the character from Tony Stark to Hank Pym.

I was going to ignore this because in reading what you've wrote it just seems that you have a huge issue with the movie version of the Marvel Universe which is more than fair.

But Tony Stark does not "snap under pressure all the time".

This breaking point for him has been accumulating for literally NINE YEARS.

Starting from being taken hostage by the Nine Rings in the first movie. being almost mortally wounded and needing the mini arc reactor in his chest to keep him alive. The loss of Ho Yinsen, the betrayal by Obidiah Stane. Almost being poisoned by the arc reactor in his chest the thing that's keeping him alive.

Meeting the man (Steve Rogers) that his father IDOLIZED and having not worked through his issues with his parents loss, particularly his father, has a little bit of contempt for Steve. The loss of Coulson. Then the donnybrook in NYC. But again that's not what gave him PTSD, it was driving that nuke through the wormhole and seeing what was on the other side on it's way to Earth.

Keep in mind that he was THE ONLY one of the Avengers to see this. And for all his bluster and intelligence?

Tony Stark is just a MAN.

Until that? SuperSoldier? No Problem.
Rampaging beast? Okay. Still not too bad. It was made through science. Something that he understands.
Asgardian Alien? Okay. Still feels it could be explained by tech. Magic is just another technology.

But the overwhelming Alien force that he saw in that wormhole when he thought that he was about to DIE? Yeah. it effected him. Even still here I don't see where he's snapped.

At the beginning of IM3 he's CLEARLY suffering from PTSD but he hasn't snapped. He's dealing with it by overcompensating. By working relentlessly. Tirelessly....

Beautifully said. Beautifully.

And while I can understand some of Ninja's frustration, I don't think anything can be worse than Mark Millar's use of the character to make him "Iron Fascist" and basically create a string of "crisis" series with him at the center of the mess. The movies so far, have at least built up a reasonable amount of explanation for why he reaches this point by comparison.

Oh god this, a thousand times this.

Sovereign Court

What he said.

Seen the movie. Enjoyed it quite a bit. Still hold Winter Soldier as the decisively best movie of the entire MCU.
Civil war is a close second.

Spoiler:

I loved spiderman. His performance and addition was spot on. Not too much so they leave us with wanting more, and not too little so that we don't get miffed. Also, Marisa Tomei is still gorgeous as hell.

Loved Black Panther. He was amazing.
Loved Giant man.

The entire movie is well done and well thought out. Russeau brothers are awesome.

I haven't watched IM3, but was Tony overshadowed by others in that one?

No, the movie is about PTSD and how to deal with it. And it is focused much more on Tony than on Iron Man. Which I liked.

Thinking on how Cleganebowl might happen,

From the pre-season teaser where Cersei says 'I choose violence' I am guessing that The Sparrows try taking Cersei away again and Ser Strong hacks them apart. Cue the gathered Lannister forces/goldcloaks/kingsguard who are about to charge the Sparrow base when the High Sparrow comes out and lays down an ultimatum, if he is cut down the people of King's Landing will riot and KL will burn so he wants a trial. Cue a kangaroo court where he demands trial by combat. Cersei appoints Strong and out comes Hound as HS's champion.

Hound is dead. Also, he wouldn't stand a chance against frankengregor

That's true. He's WELL above Wonder Woman.

There are three superheroes that are so ingrained in popular culture that most people know their origin stories just through sheer osmosis, without having ever read a comic book or watched a movie about them.

Superman. Batman. Spider-Man.

There are literally people who have no interest in comics or comic book characters whatsoever that can give you pretty accurate accounting of those three origin stories.

I was talking about power levels.
