    Marvel Television (Loki out now)



    Release Schedule
    • WandaVision - January 2021
    • The Falcon and the Winter Soldier - March 2021
    • Loki - June 2021
    • What If...? - Mid 2021
    • Ms. Marvel - Late 2021
    • Hawkeye - Late 2021
    • Moon Knight - 2022
    • She-Hulk - 2022
    • The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special - Late 2022
    • Secret Invasion - TBD
    • Ironheart - TBD
    • Armor Wars - TBD


    I watched the first 2 episodes of WandaVision and I love it so far. It comes as advertised - a genuinely enjoyable homage to old sitcoms. Olsen and Bettany are great, and Kathryn Hahn is always funny. We'll see how crazy it gets. What do you think?

    I just watched the first two episodes of WandaVision. Idk why, but i feel the part that they are doing the homage with difficult for me to get thru. Maybe it’s because my lack of seeing very many shows like that. I mean, I’ve seen old reruns of things like Lucy, Jeannie, DVD, things like that, but not a ton.

    However, I also find that fact is making me focus on looking for and paying attention to the anomalies within their world. So maybe that is a good thing for me.

    Although.... I just watched the sneak peak again, and it looks like maybe they’ll move thru eras? Idk. Either way, I’ll still be watching.

    Really enjoyed this. Very faithful to the old sitcoms and I liked all the teases of things not being right. I really liked Wanda and Vision’s relationship in Infinity War so it’s nice to see them fleshed out in this way. If you want to completely avoid story and character details, I’d stay away from reviews since the first three episodes were given to critics.

    I'm pissed it's not like Netflix and dropped all at once, I'd have binged this all in one.

    This may be the most impressive thing I've seen from Marvel so far. The way they use and play with genre conventions, the tightness of the script, the genuine lightness of the sitcom style, the performances (oh my God, Olsen and Bettany are out of this world, in the moments where they are unsure of the world around them the pathos is incredible); all of it displays such a confidence in their approach. This is the worlds biggest entertainment franchise and they're producing something so at odds with what's come before, yet fits right in.

    I cannot wait to see where this leads.

    Enjoyed the weirdness and kookiness of it. And love the idea of a 30 minute episodic approach. Bettany in particular I think is fantastic.

    Really looking forward to seeing how this pans out.

    Finally Disney+ has something on it I'd go out of my way to see.

    Most of the negative stuff I've read feels like people are too impatient. They can't binge it all at once, which I'd love to as well, but look at The Mandalorian. People need to let this stuff flesh out and shit if you made it to the 2nd episode you start seeing there's way more going on than we know in just 2 episodes. Imagine going to any movie and walking out in the first 10 minutes. Now some movies do deserve that reaction but not this lol.

    I prefer weekly drops in general but especially and particularly for a show like this which is a throwback to old television. Dropping them all at once would be contradictory to the show's nature IMO.

    yea, seems that episode 1 was set in the 50s, episode 2 in the 60s, and episode 3 will be 70s...

    I like weekly drops because I can retain the information better. Binging a whole 12-13 episodes of something in a few days or even a week or 3 is a lot of shit to digest and remember. I'll recommend a show like The Boys and I have a hard time remembering season1 because I binged that shit to get ready for Season 2. So people will ask me shit and I'm like shit I watched 4 episodes on a Saturday that shits a blur.

    I think people got too used to Hulu, Netflix, even Prime, dumping an entire season on our laps we forgot that this isn't common. You don't turn on FOX and boom, all 30 episodes of the newest season of Family Guy are right there shown that day. Our ADD is strong these days.

    I didn't expect to understand the final act for the MCU after watching Iron Man 2. These folks need to settle down and quit being so quick to act like you know some shit.

    I like it the weekly drop for new shows. I wish Netflix and others would do the same. I think for old shows or whatever yeah just drop the whole season at once.

    I really enjoyed the first two episodes of this and can't wait to see how it plays out. I like trying to figure out the clues so far to see what is going on and who may be behind this. I think people just need to be patient. I think people just can't get past this is not the normal type story we see and impatient. I like the nods to sitcoms. I like trying to figure out the easter eggs.

    I hate the weekly thing. Once you’ve had it the other way it’s just really frustrating. I’m impatient and I want my entertainment now, damnit.

    Don’t think much of this Wandavision yet, it’s main problem being it’s really good at recreating sitcoms from 60 years ago, I just don’t really want to watch sitcoms from 60 years ago.

    As predicted the more the show goes on the more shit gets revealed. All these people crying after the first 2 episodes. Trust me, I get it, but I also had to sit through 22 Marvel movies just to see Iron Man do this thing.

    People be like "episode 3 was great because they finally revealed a little bit more about what's going on!"

    I'm like: episode 3 was my least favorite because I thought the sitcom bits weren't as good as the first 2 episodes.

    Hey, Michelangelo is my least favorite ninja turtle but he's still bad ass. So spin that how you want lol.

    And just for clarity, my post wasn't praising any episodes, just shitting on the crying ass fans who are impatient because they couldn't binge it that weekend.

    I love the full season drop, because go heavy on the details easier.

    But this type of mystery show works better as a weekly drop. Heightens the tension. Not to mention that every motherfucker online would have spoiled it online the first weekend.

    I really enjoyed the first 3 episodes. I'm looking forward to the next one. The mindfuckyness of it reminds me of Legion, which everyone should watch, it's on Hulu.

    I couldn't get into Legion at all. I did like Runaways though.

    I watched Runaways first season but didn't like it enough to watch anymore. I'm not sure if helped or hurt that I had already read the comics.

    I gave up on Hollywood transcribing comics to screen verbatim 30+ years ago. They can't use everything, certain characters aren't available so they just do what they can. Sometimes the shows/movies going a different can be better or at least interesting.

    Much more interesting episode yesterday. This is one of the best things about the unique situation we are in with MCU, you can just pluck a minor character from here and there and bring them centre stage in something else and not have to worry about setting up that character and slowing stuff down.

    I'm enjoying this series so much. I like the slow build, but this is the perfect example of a series that should have been all dropped at once, because it's a perfect binge worthy show, but that's just personal preference.

    Some thoughts and theories...

    We just started Disney+ for the month so we binged the four episodes that are out. Loving it so far. Vision's a favorite character of mine and I felt like he got done dirty in the films so I'm very happy to see him getting spotlight here. Captivating and intriguing AF. Really well done with the sitcom parodying and I like the slow burn on revealing just what in the balls is going on. Going to be tough to have to wait for a week in between but it gives me something to look forward to rather than just plowing through the whole damn show in a day or two.

    I mentioned Falcon/Winter Soldier and Loki in OP because those are next up but damn, if Marvel sticks to schedule and we also get What If, Ms Marvel and Hawkeye this year... that’s a hell of a lot of content on their TV side. And then once movie theaters are back they’re going to start unloading these films every 3 months.

    And I’m in for all of it. Although the first 3 shows are definitely more exciting for me than the next batch of 3. WandaVision and Loki are my top 2 for sure, with Falc/Wint slightly below them, and the other 3 lower down pending seeing a trailer.

    Marvel is supposedly doing 3 or more new commercial spots for the super bowl. I imagine we’ll either get a Disney+ spot that includes Loki and Falc/Wint or they’ll each get their own spot.

    Elizabeth Olsen said in an interview they have a huge Mandalorian type cameo in store this season and my money's on:

    I am avoiding all speculation and spoilers because I did see something about a leak of who makes an appearance (I didn't see what the leak was, but I saw people mentioning a leak). I'm trying to stay as out of the weeds on everything as possible (even avoiding Mr_Nobody's above theories) to be surprised by everything. That's the challenge of the weekly drop - I love the discussion/hype between episodes but I also don't want people telling me what's going to probably happen because either they are familiar with the source material or they know so-and-so was on set.



    That wouldn't be a Mandalorian-level cameo in my mind, but maybe she is just overhyping it.

    anyway I appreciate keeping educated speculation in spoiler tags as Bert did

    I was thinking I was speculating based on what we've seen on the show. But spoilered in case its over the line for anyone.

    Sorry folks, didnít mean to start a spoiler tag frenzy. Iíve read everything in tags above and donít actually think any of itís spoilery. I mean that prediction of which major MCU character will appear is the most obvious one, and if it comes true it doesnít mean it was a spoiler. I was just a little on edge because as I said, I saw recently that thereís a leak out there about a future episode.

    Yea but I think this was more of a Mando moment than that would be. This is more unexpected and more game changing. That would be pretty normal and not shocking, even though it would be cool.

    Some thoughts on episode 5:


    All that being said, I'll be tuned in next week to see how they explain things and I can't wait to find out.

    SuperBowl Trailer for the next series we'll be talking about! I've been more excited about this series than any of the others. Although, I still find it cool that most of these are filmed around me now, so I get to play "Can I figure out where the scene takes place?"

    Looks good. Surely will have some great action scenes in it.

    Daniel BrŁhl returning as Zemo after his villain role in Civil War makes me happy.

    I agree completely. To me, he is one of my favorite MCU villains, and I'm looking forward to seeing him up his game in this.

    Plus, I could watch an entire series of just Sam and Bucky's banter, so I'm sold on that alone.

    I am really looking forward to this series. Their banter is great and I really like both characters.

    As far as WandaVision is going. Still loving it. I was not completely surprised by the ending of the last episode due to seeing some leaked set photos as one point. Still a lot of questions to be answered though and not all clear cut.

    You know what would be totally crazy for WandaVision, and definitely cause people's jaw to drop...

    It's been getting better and better, another solid entry this week that is more of a 'setting things up' episode after a couple of weeks of us getting some answers. Really intrigued by the whole thing now.



    Paul Bettany looks like he's having a superb time, by the way. Great performance.

    Theory stuff/maybe spoilers:

    In the comics she theoretically can be. Or at least was shown to have been.

    When was the last MCU misstep, Thor 2?

    It's a run unlike anything I've ever known in entertainment.

    I had watched the first two episodes and then slacked off. Caught up last night.


    What the fuck was I doing slacking off on this?

    This is officially at Mandalorian “me waking up early on Friday so i can’t miss shit” point

    If we're nitpicking maybe a few Shield episodes in the later seasons but honestly everything has been pretty damn good. Including Thor 2, but I will admit it's possibly the weakest movie-but there has to be a weakest lol.

    The weakest are probably Thor 2, Iron Man 3, and Age of Ultron. And I still like major parts of those movies.

    Since that time though, I don't think there's been anything I'd rank below a solid B to B+.

    The first Captain America sucked. The sequel Winter Soldier was so much better.

    Replace Ultron with Guardians 2.

    I hate saying that because my oldest son who is 19 told me 2 years ago that his favorite movie of all time was Guardians of the Galaxy 2. He's not super big into movies, he usually just goes because we ask him to or his gf at the time wants to see something. He's way more into Japanese anime and I guess that style of animated movies in general. So I get it if that is his favorite because it's way the fuck out there, but I mean, he's seen quite a few classics and almost all of the DC and Marvel movies.....

    Does Guardians have an argument of being better than even a movie like Deadpool? Great movie, one of my top 25 I bet, but I wouldn't call it my FAVORITE comic book movie def not my all-time favorite.

    I can't support the first sentence at all. It was great. Winter Soldier is a great one as well. It 20000% benefits the same way Civil War did in terms of Iron Man and Thor didn't rely so much on the other 92 MCU characters. Very very few of few of these movies only have a couple crossover characters and the ones they do aren't exactly Spider Man level. I always forget Civil War is Capt America 3. Still incredible.

    Dude I hate fucking your name right now lol.

    I agree with Mazer on the weakest 3. Guardians 2 had enough going for it overall I think to not put it below those 3.

    Thor: The Dark World was somewhat underrated I thought. Pretty solid movie so I don't consider it a misstep.

    And yea the MCU is basically unprecedented. Can't say enough about how good Kevin Feige is at this. WandaVision is so good, and I expect the next 2 series will be as well. When we get further down the road with Hawkeye, Moon Knight, She Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Armor Wars, etc, I don't expect them to all be this good. I mean they can't be, right? But I bet they won't suck, either.

    I enjoyed Guardians 2. But I loved the original. One of the great things about the studio is that if you dig a genre/style, they've got at least couple you're likely going to love.

    The one that most surprised on how much I liked was Thor: Ragnarok. That one is among my personal favorites

    If you're including TV series, Inhumans is far and away the correct answer.

    I decided to exclude the TV series preceding this because they were ignored by the movies as much as possible.

    SHIELD did touch a fair bit on events from the movies, but it was clearly its own thing that the main movies wouldn't care about what happened in them. These shows don't have that same feel.

    Netflix tv shows ignored for the same reason.

    Disney+ is a steal at $7/month especially now that Marvel is opening the floodgates of their original shows. I wonder how soon they’ll raise the price.

    Yeah, agreed.

    SHIELD, Inhumans, the Netflix shows etc, they never felt an integral part of the MCU. These shows (well, this, and how the others are being marketed) do.

    None of the shows were really essential to the MCU. Agents of Shield had Nick Fury and Maria Hill, but outside of that nothing note worthy. If I am remembering correctly, I think Lady Sif showed up as well.

    A thought about WandaVision:



    If this doesn't need a spoiler, let me know.

    I agree, it would be enough for me. I haven't dove in on any of the potential mastermind scenarios people are guessing. Some of the character names I've seen thrown around, I've never heard of them anyway and I'm not eager to look them up and potentially spoil myself. So yea, I assume Wanda just created all of this because she misses her dead husband and wanted him back. That is a perfectly reasonable motivation. And I assume she is a sitcom fan, i.e watched a lot of American TV in her life at some point.

    If there's some other major driving force behind this (which has been hinted at so it seems very possible), I will take it as it comes.

    The MCU has been an incredible run. The weakest entries for me are Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2, but there have been little dips and sideways steps since then. The biggest disappointment was Captain Marvel - I found it quite bland and thought that Larson was really restricted from fleshing out the character by not knowing who she was until late in the film. Guardians 2 is great fun but the tone is definitely inconsistent. Ant-Man and The Wasp is pure fluff - unless I was doing a complete rewatch of the series, I can’t imagine ever watching it again having seen it twice to date.

    Thor: The Dark World has its problems but I think Hemsworth is great and I love the dynamic with Loki in the second half. It’s not as good as the first Thor, which is still one of my favourites. I don’t get why Age of Ultron is held in such low regard by some people. It’s a bit bloated and some aspects feel under-developed or choppy from the final edit. But the party at Avengers HQ and Vision lifting the hammer are two of the best scenes in the franchise. Iron Man vs Hulk is great. Vision’s last line to Ultron in the forest is perfect. Loads of great stuff in that film.

    The hype and theorizing around these final 3 episodes has gotten pretty huge here. Whether it lives up to the hype or not, Feige did it again. This is an event.

    Also I saw something about the release schedule which isn’t definite or anything but it basically said that Marvel will be releasing something every week for the rest of the year if the schedule plays out this way. It was like: WandaVision wraps up then there will be a “making of” release in the one week gap before Falcon, then the same thing will happen before Black Widow, then into Loki, then into What If and Hawkeye and Eternals. The movie releases are subject to change and I don’t think What If and Hawkeye have official release dates, but there is a possibility of non stop MCU in 2021.

    No way that happens. Black Widow has already been delayed 2-3 times. They want a big movie opening and won't settle so I see it being delayed again.

    Idk. It’s a tough decision for them. If they keep pushing it then it pushes back everything in the years to come. You may be right, but they might finally sacrifice Black Widow to the Disney+ gods to stop the log jam. Especially because who knows how these tv shows feed into the movies plot-wise.

    Teyonah Parris is killing it. Iím really enjoying how her role has developed over time.
