...so far...

A 43 page slideshow is permanently dead to me.
 
2019-03-24 10:27:33 PM  
What about the Joker, he just fell off a building, that's bullshiat.

/really, did that need to be a slideshow?

Sitwell's death makes me laugh every time.

*thump*

*CRASH*

*strangled scream*

Well, I learned there are 43 of them. Or possibly 42; often the last slide is a faker.
 
2019-03-24 11:09:19 PM  
That's a lot of stabbings.
 
2019-03-25 12:26:12 AM  
So basically it's every on-screen death except for Coulson, who should be on there since for all intensive porpoises, he's dead to everyone in the movies.

There's no way Loki or Heimdall "stay" dead.  And I put stay in quotes because it's rumored that the core to Endgame involves time travel in some fashion, so I'm thinking that the timeline gets rewritten to such an extent that Thanos gets taken out before his forces even meet with the Asgard exodus ship so in the new timeline they don't have an opportunity to die.

Push it back another day, and they may save Asgard as well.

I sincerely doubt Loki is dead, unless his upcoming TV show is all prequel.

Also, I find the claim Arnim Zola is dead suspicious at best.  As a digital consciousness, he could have any number of back-ups, or could have download himself elsewhere before the missiles hit.  Assuming he was actually committing suicide is pretty dumb -- we know he had a connection to the outside world, since he called in the missile strike.  Likewise, I wouldn't be so quick to assume Ultron didn't survive.

And several of these character could easily be brought back, since we never saw a corpse.  SHIELD says Obadiah Stane is dead, but that was before the Hydra reveal.  Maybe he survived, badly injured and was whisked away to a Hydra safehouse.  Same with Ivan Vanko,

I see some errors here and there.

Loki, death by stabbing?  Nope, Thanos broke his neck, with one hand.

It was a typical, should have been "death caused by stabbing at Thanos." Which in most of the galaxy counts as a natural death.

Also, Garthan Saal.  Not so much killed by the Dark Aster, but by Ronan unleashing the Power Stone into Nova Corp's energy net.

Nope.  And I think if Loki can fall off of Asgard and survive, so can Hela.

I am pretty sure they have stated it will be a prequel. Basically the tales of the Viking god of mischief throughout the ages.

I still hold out that Zola still alive. The man became a living algorithm; he could in the electronic ether for all we know.

That was generally a brilliant movie, but having Zola go to such extreme measures to keep on living, then let himself die in an attempt to kill Rogers and Romanov that wasn't likely to work?  It's a bit odd.

I hope they address the legends of Loki's horsing around. It could be a season long arc. So many great odd myths. They could appropriate trickster stories from other cultures as well. I wouldn't mind seeing them switch in different actors for Loki to fit the story and represent the culture the stories came from. We should at least see a feminine representation at some point.

I like the idea for Endgame that the timeline backs up so everyone is alive again, but it then splits and all of the characters whose contracts are ending stay in the Snap line.

And negate the events of every MCU movie made to date except for those with 'Captain' in the title.

There's also a philosophical question here: Was that really Arnim Zola? Is a brain dumped onto reel-to-reel magnetic tape and punchcards and hooked up to a terminal with a voice synthesizer actually alive? Or did Arnim Zola die way back when, and the backup of his brain is just that: A lifeless copy of the raw data in his head, no different than any other recording of someone's thoughts and ideas.

Was it a thinking being, or just an interactive record of his thoughts replayed for Captain America's benefit?

Well, she did take Giant Surturs' sword full in the face as it was being buried into Asguard.

Nope.  And I think if Loki can fall off of Asgard and survive, so can Hela.


From a narrative standpoint, the only reason to keep her alive would be to make her Thanos' love interest in Infinity War, but they went a different direction.  So I don't think we will be seeing her again.

The problem is, Thor's time in the sun is about over.  He got his 3 solo movies and 4 team-up movies.  They're moving on to new properties.

So if Heimdall and Loki are to survive, it could only be because they could have interesting stories in whatever Next Gen Asgardian takes over Thor's "slot".  But Loki is mostly interesting because he's Thor's brother.  Heimdall was interesting because he of his rigid stoicism in the face of Thor and Loki's silliness.

Moreover, Heimdall is a storytelling liability 6 ways from Sunday because he can see what's happening anywhere in all the realms.  So any story with Heimdall has to at least hang a lampshade on why Heimdall can't simply pinpoint any problem before its a problem and squash it.  So either A) Heimdall stays dead so storytelling tension can at least be possible; B) Heimdall is revived with some bullshiat that takes away his powers - maybe they were somehow tied to the Infinity stones, and being revived broke his link to them or something; or C) Heimdall is revived, but every movie from now till forever finds some bullshiat reason to sideline him immediately - "Gahh! Spectral . . . interference! Sapping my powers. . . Want to tell you where to kill Baby Mecha Hitler but . . . can't.  Because of the . . . plot!"

Horsing around...feminine representation...do we really need to see Sleipnir's conception?

It will mostly be about everyone dealing with the ramifications of Thor being a frog.

It is more of a want situation. I would enjoy watching them pull it off. The Arrowverse's Legends Of Tomorrow could damn well get it done.

Knowing Thanos' arc in the IG comic, I'm loving all these theories of how Endgame ends.

Hela drew her power directly from Asgard. Loki did not.
With Asgard destroyed - Hela is powerless - powerless = DEAD.

I heard a rumor that Loki's series is going to involve Loki travelling through time solving mysteries a la quantum leap. Which seems kinda disappointing (like seriously they couldn't come up with something better?). In any case if thats the case the fact that Loki has a series doesn't negate him being dead in the MCU. I thought his death was bullshiat, but he's still dead.
