To Infinity and Beyond: The Marvel Cinematic Universe

I'm skeptical that this will able to recreate the magic of the first one, which felt like a happy accident, but I hope it's at least in the ballpark.

 

Octopus Prime

Looks like it’s leaning in more to being an intentional comedy than the first, which is usually cause for concern, but I have faith it’ll still be a fun time at the movies.

And it’s coming out on my birfday!

I was sold on "Ta-dah!"

But I was pre-ordered on "Hello Eddie, hello Venom."
 
The trailer definitely convinced me that their marketing department has done a survey of what people on social media like about the first Venom movie.

I'm just generally skeptical of making any assumptions (good or bad) about the actual content of a movie based on a trailer. They're still often fun to watch on their own merits, just not necessarily as an indicator of what the movie will be like.
 

Octopus Prime

(He/Him)
The Patton Oswalt MODOK started airing.

Based on the first episode, it’s a kind of a cross between Venture Brothers and Better Off Ted. Just with Marvel characters.

I finally got around to the Venom trailer. I still don't get it. I legit think the first Venom is just a really bad movie. Baffling and often interesting, but also not good or actually fun to watch. That looks like more the same. Good for everyone who liked Venom, I guess.
 
Venom is incredibly good. But I feel like the reasons why it's good is because it's so earnest in trying to be this edgy, eXtreme, psychotic anti-hero thing. And that most of the comedy is unintentional. It's just like, pure 80s comics distilled into a weirdass movie. And I fear that the next film will be self-conscious and thus try too hard and miss the mark.

Partly that, but for me, more of it came from Tom Hardy decided, independently from everyone else, that the movie was a romantic comedy and only some of the cast was willing to play along with him.

Salma Hayek as Ajak, the Eternals’ leader; Lia McHugh as the youthful-seeming Sprite; Richard Madden as Ikaris; Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos; Ma Dong-seok as Gilgamesh; Angelina Jolie as Thena; Gemma Chan as Sersi; Barry Keoghan as Druig; and Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo.

I shoukd6be more excited about I Can't Believe This Is Not Jack Kirby's Fourth World but I'm not feeling it. Maybe the pandemic mandated break has killed the inertia for me.

But then I wasn't interested in Sam and Bucky's World Tour and that was fun. I think it'll be a nice enough movie, but I won't be there on opening day.

It's... a nice teaser, it kinda sorta gives a little bit of info on who all these people are, but... hopefully the full trailer will give us a reason to be interested in them? A narrative conflict, a purpose to their existence, a justification why the adaptation of a comic that only existed as an excuse to give us Kirbytech splash pages has zero Kirby aesthetics in it...?
 

Kirin

Yeah it looks pretty enough but as of right now I haven't the faintest clue who these people are or why I should care what they're up to.
 

Super Megaman X

As for me, they have quite an uphill battle to climb, because not only do I not really know who they are or why I should really care, but if they're really as powerful as Marvel keeps touting them to be, where the hell were they with regards to Thanos?! Did half of them die, or are they beyond the power of the stones? And no matter what the answer is, they certainly didn't seem to care about fixing the problem, they left it to humans to fix it, so they can piss off.

Marvel made Groot into a household name, and they made Iron Man into an A lister. I feel like they've earned a bit of trust when they introduce obscure comic characters.

What's the opposite of "An ant has no quarrel with a boot."?
 
If Marvel were to make a Kirby-esque film, then they'd have to start answering tough questions like "Who is Jack Kirby?" and "Why have you done so much to minimize the legacy and contribution of the individual whose work is the foundation of your entire media empire?"

Ha ha.. just kidding. MCU fans don't care about shit like that

Right, they want to know if Gilgamesh will dress up in golden bull armour.

 
Now that the Disney owns mutants, fans are crying out for a shot-for-panel adaptation of Jack Kirby's Captain American Annual #4, the perfect way to introduce Magneto into the MCU.

That quoted comic got more incredible and delightful with each panel...nay, with each word bubble!

I genuinely love the intimation that the reason Captain Marvel didn't show up for all the movies is because she had bigger fish to fry. I like the idea that there's a threshold of power past which you're useless for all but the most dire circumstances, because for any problem you could fix there are a million worse problems that also need fixing.
