I really hope they bring back a ton of the Netflix cast. I could take or leave the actual plots, but I would love Daredevil to show up in court during She-Hulk.

There's a new episode? Wow. Nice. Are there going to be weekly episodes now or is it just a crapshoot.
Where's LOKI part two?

New episodes every Wednesday for the next few weeks. Loki season 2 is probably a couple years off at this point.

Seeing that Pym arrowhead was great.

Seeing the effect of it was awesome.

I'm weirdly happy to learn that the actor playing Lucky actually has both eyes.

Final episode on December 22.

I can totally see them having the final, post-credit stinger for episode 6 going like this...

Kazi (or some other lieutenant) walks through a lavish office foyer. We see him enter the office from the vantage point of someone seated behind a large desk, without seeing who is behind the desk. Kazi delivers a report, detailing how everything that happened in the show was a Xanatos Gambit/Just As Planned. After the report, Kazi gets dismissed by a wave of the seated person's hand. We catch the sight of a pair of well-worn, slightly cheap cufflinks. Kazi says, 'Merry Christmas, Sir', then turns and walks out.

Camera starts panning around to the front of the desk. A familiar voice replies, 'Yes...'

Person at the desk is revealed to be Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin. Camera zooms in on his calculating smile. "Merry Christmas, indeed."

Cut to black.

I'm hoping we get a lot more than that, but this series being as short as it is, we'll probably get something like that, if even that much. I'm guessing he'll play a big role in the Echo series, though.

I'm enjoying the show so far, overall.

My favorite bits have been the animated end credit sequence.  It's just really well done.
 
2021-12-01 6:41:14 PM  
I'm realllly enjoying this. Kate is awesome, and they've even made Hawkeye interesting. And kinda preferring the more grounded, no world ending big bad yet.

So far the first 3 have been better than Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Wandavision was so far my favourite, Loki a close second but it lost out due to a terrible filler episode (the train journey on purple world)

I agree. The chase scene alone in this episode was better than the whole F&WS series.

Something about when the van doors opened up to reveal goons inside that started shooting at the Hawkii just tickled me.

I think we will get an even bigger twist than that. There are a couple of character acts that need to be resolved. All MCU series so far detail the growth of a new hero, they accept who they are, are what has happened. How I see it going:

1. Maya finds out Ronin/Clint didn't kill her dad, and vows to take the Kingpin down. This is her Heel Face Turn to become an Edgy Hero.

2. Clint is tired of the sacrifices he's had to make, but he can't let go. He's deaf, he's hurting, his family needs him. Kate sees the pain of being hero, and she's just been a spoiled brat, so she vows to be a hero, if only to give Hawkeye some rest. Clint smiles, calls his family, and says he's coming home just in time for Christmas. That's why the last ep is Dec 22nd, before Christmas.

3. Kate discovers her mom is actually a bad guy, and Jack and Clint know each other. Jack is after the macguffin that Kate's mom has hidden, and the mom told Jack to kill the old man, but Jack is secretly working for Kingpin, too. Kate has to resolve her mommy/daddy issues by defeating her stepdad (she's the only one with the skills to take him on, so that's obvious) and standing up to her mom. She's disgusted by her family, so she leaves and it's hero time.

4. Daredevil/Matt Murdoch is this series special guest appearance. Just a hunch. Lawyers will be involved somehow.

Yeah, waiting for the Clint/Jack interaction next week...

Alternately...

Jack was after the Ronin sword and costume less as 'artifacts', but more as wanting to become the new Ronin. Swordsman's arc in the comics is one of semi-redemption, after all.

Still trying to figure out where the watch comes in...

I think they're going to save Matt for an appearance in She-Hulk. But they do need to build up more hype for the Netflix shows/casts possibly returning. Aside from 'Iron Fist'; Jessica Henwick is the only one I want to see returning in their role, there. The big obstacle is that Mike Colter, and now Charlie Cox, have themselves lead roles in new series. So...not sure how well it's going to turn out...

Nah. Just saying that already being halfway though, and we've already got Echo/Tracksuit Mafia and Swordmaster as antagonists. Adding Kingpin as a major player (and what it means to the larger MCU reintroducing Netflix actors/characters) at this point seems unlikely to me.

And yeah, Falcon/WS somehow felt much longer.

He's rumored to be appearing in the next two episodes, and considering he's very likely the "Uncle" referenced by Echo (and let's be honest, it's definitely him in thet flashback).

I'm assuming a stinger tease in the next episode and a bit more focus on him in 5, to coincide with Matt Murdock's all but confirmed appearance in No Way Home.

My real question is what they'll do with him afterwards. Save him for a future Spidey project? Or maybe the Echo show, since they're using her for his reintroduction.

Cox's Murdock/Daredevil is also heavily rumored for She-Hulk, so perhaps we could even see him there.

I'm still holding out for Bernthal's Punisher making a comeback too(Moon Knight, or a future series).

The weird bit is that Jessica Henwick was offered a role in Shang-Chi, but she turned it down for the Matrix movie. That would have made bringing back the Netflix cast a little funky if she was playing Katie or Xailing.

I can totally see them having the final, post-credit stinger for episode 6 going like this...

Kazi (or some other lieutenant) walks through a lavish office foyer. We see him enter the office from the vantage point of someone seated behind a large desk, without seeing who is behind the desk. Kazi delivers a report, detailing how everything that happened in the show was a Xanatos Gambit/Just As Planned. After the report, Kazi gets dismissed by a wave of the seated person's hand. We catch the sight of a pair of well-worn, slightly cheap cufflinks. Kazi says, 'Merry Christmas, Sir', then turns and walks out.

Camera starts panning around to the front of the desk. A familiar voice replies, 'Yes...'

Person at the desk is revealed to be Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin. Camera zooms in on his calculating smile. "Merry Christmas, indeed."

Cut to black.

I'm hoping we get a lot more than that, but this series being as short as it is, we'll probably get something like that, if even that much. I'm guessing he'll play a big role in the Echo series, though.

The series isn't "short". It's the same length as all of the others. 6 hours.

Yeah, they're all short series. We're already halfway though it.


And that's perfectly fine.  Most of the Netflix series were way too long at 13 episodes.

NeoCortex42: baron von doodle: Really? None of the Avengers get paid for saving the universe?

Tony should have set up a farking fund. I'm a bit surprised Pepper wouldn't have done something like that on his behalf.


Well, Cap, Natasha, and Clint got paid by SHIELD for a while.  Thor has a pile of Asgardian Gold to use.  Stark likely had Banner on retainer so he could pick his brain when needed.  After Civil War, he possibly set up a endowment tied to the Avengers Compound.  Expenses taken care of, pocket money provided.  Officially all owned by Stark industries perhaps. Stark kinda walked away but kept developing tech for their use.
Perhaps he just needed the space.  That he suffered from PTSD, from his captivity and the events in the first Avengers film has been heavily hinted at.

When lockdown started I invested in Disney+ because I wanted to see Hamilton, Mandalorian and other things. I have watched every Marvel movie and sidestep episodes that have been presented. I am enjoying Hawkeye it's fun, but Shang-Chi was off the radar. Just finished watching and jesus farking christ, that was a fun movie.

I especially love when that one guy you aren't expecting to ever see again pops up midway through Shang-Chi.

Once you watched the "Hail to the chief" short, that was strangely suggested to me on Disney+ when Shang Chi was in theater, it was actually obvious he would make an appearance.

And now I'm thinking about Planet of the Apes and laughing my ass off all over again.

dsmith42: Summoner101: NeoCortex42: Sure hope so. Kingpin in the Netflix series was definitely a highlight.

Has Vincent D'Onofrio ever let us down?

He couldn't climb that farking obstacle.


Compared to you he's at the top of the evolutionary ladder!

If that (a) wasn't Kingpin or (b) Kingpin played by anyone other that Vincent D'Onofrio I'm rioting in the streets.

About 10 minutes into last night's episode, I turned to Mrs 316 and said "I just love this tv show".  And I do. So much more than I expected.  The 2 leads play really well off each other and I think that's why I love MCU movies and shows so much.  The actors/characters are just farking charming as hell.  It's enjoyable,which is what I want out of my entertainment.

RoyFokker'sGhost: Wine Sipping Elitist: RoyFokker'sGhost: Final episode on December 22.

I can totally see them having the final, post-credit stinger for episode 6 going like this...

Cut to black.

I think we will get an even bigger twist than that. There are a couple of character acts that need to be resolved. All MCU series so far detail the growth of a new hero, they accept who they are, are what has happened. How I see it going:

1. Maya finds out Ronin/Clint didn't kill her dad, and vows to take the Kingpin down. This is her Heel Face Turn to become an Edgy Hero.

2. Clint is tired of the sacrifices he's had to make, but he can't let go. He's deaf, he's hurting, his family needs him. Kate sees the pain of being hero, and she's just been a spoiled brat, so she vows to be a hero, if only to give Hawkeye some rest. Clint smiles, calls his family, and says he's coming home just in time for Christmas. That's why the last ep is Dec 22nd, before Christmas.

3. Kate discovers her mom is actually a bad guy, and Jack and Clint know each other. Jack is after the macguffin that Kate's mom has hidden, and the mom told Jack to kill the old man, but Jack is secretly working for Kingpin, too. Kate has to resolve her mommy/daddy issues by defeating her stepdad (she's the only one wit ...

Yeah, waiting for the Clint/Jack interaction next week...

Alternately...

Jack was after the Ronin sword and costume less as 'artifacts', but more as wanting to become the new Ronin. Swordsman's arc in the comics is one of semi-redemption, after all.

Still trying to figure out where the watch comes in...

I think they're going to save Matt for an appearance in She-Hulk. But they do need to build up more hype for the Netflix shows/casts possibly returning. Aside from 'Iron Fist'; Jessica Henwick is the only one I want to see returning in their role, there. The big obstacle is that Mike Colter, and now Charlie Cox, have themselves lead roles in new series. So...not sure how well it's going to turn out...


I'd kill for a new Jessica Jones series with Krysten Ritter.

I like the show. The thing that drives me crazy about all the Marvel stuff is when one character request an explanation of the situation and the character that knows the backstory only provides vague, confusing answers. Like, when Hawkeye and Kate are in the car and he asks about her suspicions about her step father and she says "He gave me a butterscotch" and leaves out he important part where the butterscotch has the dead dudes initials monogram on it, leaving Hawkeye confused.

Yeah, they used some CGI (Canine Generated Imagery).

solokumba: Tinners478: I'm realllly enjoying this. Kate is awesome, and they've even made Hawkeye interesting. And kinda preferring the more grounded, no world ending big bad yet.

So far the first 3 have been better than Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Wandavision was so far my favourite, Loki a close second but it lost out due to a terrible filler episode (the train journey on purple world)

I agree. The chase scene alone in this episode was better than the whole F&WS series.


That's a low bar.  Everything in that series felt forced.
