Movie stars Samuel L Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn are reportedly starring in the six-part series, which will also feature Olivia Coleman and Emilia Clarke.

Emilia Clarke? Bold choice. Will Ted McGinley be appearing as well?

The Skrulls, Captain Marvel, and God-like beings are the worst things to happen to the MCU.

Give me flawed "everyman" characters that fight crime and yet still struggle to pay the rent. I can relate to them.

Except, unlike the DC universe, even the cosmic beings have human level loves, fears, and doubts. Exemplified by Thanos but seen in Loki, the Eternals and Shang-Chi also.

I think many people watch superhero movies for a bit of a dose of fantasy-escapist optimism. Fighting just to have a roof over one's head is somewhat the opposite of that.

I can agree that the Eternals was totally unnecessary and very boring.

I totally disagree.  DC animation is soooooooo much better than DC live action because it does the human stuff.

Hell, speaking of DC   Henry Cavill.

Henry as Superman:  Just another spandex clad guy playing supes.

Henry as Himself during quarantine: The rare ultracool nerd.  Much more relatable but rich as creosote.

Henry as penniless Geralt: Women want him, men want to be Jaiskir around him. Everybody loves his ass literally and figuratively

You don't start a Marvel movie with a scrolling history lesson. Have an action scene first.  SHOW me who is a good vs bad guy to minimize exposition. I like to think the director was forced to do it, because they explain everything again during the movie.

I don't recall any points where DC animation dealt with the need of the characters to pay rent, but that is a rather massive body of work so I freely acknowledge that I may have forgotten some part of it.

I agree that it should be human (which in my opinion was one of the large failings of Cavill as Superman, though largely through no fault of his own, I think).

There's bound to be plenty of Blue Beetle stories where he's struggling to make rent. He's one of DC's biggest sad sacks.

In the animated universe? There's a bit of Blue Beetle in JLU and a bit of him in Young Justice (different blue beetles as I recall). No rent, though.

Oh - I remember one! Harley' Quinn's need to pay rent is referenced in Batman & Harley Quinn.

She's more of an anti-hero than a villain, so it makes sense she'd be the one having rent problems. Five minutes after a prison break, full-blown villains get giant customized lairs in the middle of the city and never even have to worry about the property taxes.

Their true godlike beings like the Watchers and Dormammu don't seem to have any relatable budget issues.

Yeah definitely. I was just glad that I conclusively proved myself wrong in assuming DC hasn't done that.

Marvel has done it in many places, of course, but they tend to downplay rent situations for the simple fact that they are always clear that being a hero doesn't tend to be a profitable gig in most places.

In the modern reality, Peter Parker would not be able to afford even a sublet on his own in the city as a college student, even with the photography job unless he is getting paid quite a bit, which of course is not the case.

However, having him share an apartment with people is obviously also not practical, so they handwave it away.

The ending of No Way Home is particularly confusing with how it ends.

SPOILER ALERT FOR WHOEVER'S STILL AVOIDING NO WAY HOME SPOILERS...

How is he able to rent an apartment as a non-entity? It's implied that his school records are gone, but shouldn't that mean his social security number and credit records disappeared as well? Or does he still exist on paper, in which case he shouldn't need to take a GED exam to restore his education status? None of that made sense.

Yeah - Agreed. I suppose technically the solution that was provided doesn't affect him in computer systems, etc. maybe?  "Who's this parker guy on our roll sheet? Whatever. Probably just a bug. I'll have the office remove him."

Like that would happen at a big university. Most teachers are likely to forget at least 80% of their students once they finish the class, and if there's a full paper trail of exams, term papers, lab hours and everything else, there'd have to be an investigation before anyone would just click delete on all of it. That conclusion wasn't thought through very well, since at the very least, Parker had to have access to money and he wouldn't have been carrying around a full first month's rent and security deposit in his Spider jammies.

Yeah - I think they're just movie handwaving the impacticality of living when you don't exist on one computer screen or another, and living anonymously when you do.

The whole idea was bonkers, because the ending also suggests that MJ and Ned had a different history together that resulted in a much more tender relationship between the two of them. Like Strange didn't just erase memories and records, but created a whole alternate past that filled in the gap left by Peter's absence, while still leaving his exploits as Spider-Man intact.

Even for a comic book movie, that ending felt way too undercooked and ill-defined.

The relationship between those two companies is as strange and confusing as the one between Pete Davidson and whoever he's dating this week.
