    So, people are claiming that this, somehow, is tied into the MCU.

    There's a Spider-Man poster on the wall proclaiming him a "murderer" and Michael Keaton shows up playing someone who's pretty much identified as being Adrian Toombs/The Vulture.

    This seemed like a cool idea for a movie before. But its quickly made itself essential viewing.

    Alright mate, not sure if you've heard. There's a quite exciting movie that's kicking off Phase 4, let me just double check what it's calle...Black Widow. It's called Black Widow.

    We have already seen how her story ends, and I agree with whoever said that to undo her ending would be to undercut her sacrifice and the emotional toll it put on both the Avengers and the fans. Not happening.

    The tease in the post credits will set up the Hawkeye series, if I had to guess. Or it’s something completely unrelated to Black Widow like the Eternals.

    I posted my thoughts in the Trailer thread but essentially:

    1. I think the trailer is good
    2. I'm curious if the snap happened in this universe. Is that canon? All other stuff (Avengers etc) can be rather easily ignored, but half of all humans and animals disappearing for 5 years would be hard to write around if indeed the Sony Marvel Universe is keeping the MCU as canon when they include Spidey and Vulture in here. They could pick and choose that Spidey and Vulture's canons from the MCU are the only thing carrying over, and not the snap, and that's probably fine though the inconsistency may irk some viewers.

    Yeah, i can't see them undoing just about every death or it's gonna be like in comics where deaths don't matter 'cuz you know they're just going to undo them a few flicks later. Your favorite character killed? No worries, they've got a Diseny+ show or will be resurrected in a later move...

    Im digging this final trailer. Plenty of action, a villain who seems to have a Winter Soldier vibe in terms of being a genuine threat and I think Johansson will bring the goods as they flesh out her backstory.

    It's for his role in Spike Lee's new movie about returning Vietnam vets.

    yea looks good. assuming the pandemic doesn't come back to ruin everything, having 4 MCU movies released in a 6-month span (July - Sept - Nov - Dec) will be fun. they've never put out more than 3 in a calendar year before so that will be something. I'm ready for them to open the flood gates.

    Looks pretty standard, but ehh corny and fun.

    Would have popped hard if they'd made an Immortal Weapons movie instead.

    I just watched his movie Message from the King. Badass. Very sad watching it as he had the potential to become the next big thing.

    That's fuckin sweet.

    I will be honest, kind of odd not seeing Captain America/Iron Man but I was never a big mark for them.

    It’ll be interesting to see the next big crossover film once we get beyond 2023. I reckon that before Boseman died, Black Panther, Dr Strange and Captain Marvel were being positioned to be the new big three to anchor another Avengers film after their respective sequels. Though Captain America can slide into that role now that they’re giving Mackie his own film. I really want to see more cases of these characters popping up in each other’s movies.

    I will always be so happy I saw Endgame opening weekend in a packed theater and got to cheer with a couple hundred people at various moments. Best theater experience I’ve ever had. Seeing that clip in the sizzle reel just brought back those memories.

    As someone who will gladly keep forking over my money for Marvel movies as long as they keep churning out high quality fluff, that sizzle reel has me amped up and excited.

    That trailer kinda did nothing for me. Looks like glamorous folks walking around and doing glamorous things, not having any sort of conflict. And that joke at the end fell totally flat.

    Yea I agree but it's just a teaser. Looks cool and epic but no idea what the plot is and what the triggering event/villain will be that gets them to start intervening with human affairs. I mean if they didn't intervene with Thanos, what were they waiting for? Anyway it's a good cast so I'm interested. And I think it'll be cool to see how they've guided humans throughout history even if that's just covered in the early parts of the movie.

    I’m interested in it but I think it’s deliberately vague. I don’t really know what to make of it.

    The continuity thing is always going to be an issue when they introduce characters who have been around or alive during the major MCU conflicts. Fury not calling Captain Marvel when Loki was attacking the Earth in the first Avengers film makes no sense, yet he decides within seconds of seeing people disappear in the Snap that it’s time to call her. It was a cool moment to see her logo flash up on the pager, but the pager itself is problematic when the likes of Loki and Ultron were about to take over or destroy the planet long before Thanos got the stones. Same way Wonder Woman was written into a corner by having her emerge after decades of non-interference in BvS and now the stand-alone films are trying to work around it.

    Fury paged Danvers when Loki attacked but she just wasn't in range or was busy with something else. She could have been anywhere in the galaxy in that short 1 week period of the attack. Boom, fan-splained.

    The range of the pager was a couple of galaxies at least. I have no problem with that explanation. I just think the writing around it is a little clunky - the whole “for emergencies only” thing because it puts the onus on Fury to determine what is an actual emergency requiring her assistance and you never see him making the call on previous occasions. But they probably didn’t even have Danvers mapped out in the early days of the MCU so they’ve tried to fit her in around those big events, just like the Eternals have seemingly been around for ages.
