Avengers: Endgame: Someone put together an interactive graphic to try to sort out some of the headache-inducing effects of that movie's conclusion. Spoilers, obv. I really want to re-watch the scene with Bruce and The Ancient One on the roof, to see if it sheds any useful light on what happened subsequently. I enjoyed the movie a lot while I was watching it - and the parts that I enjoyed haven't dimmed with time - but the more I think about what the movie did, the more aggravated with it I get.
It seems like it. The CW shows are on 2, maybe 3, different Earths, but share a 'universe' (and the characters have visited, or been visited by, several more Earths). Presumably they'll all be on one, shared Earth at the end of Crisis. I don't know if it's been confirmed that Black Lightning will be involved in that, and I don't know if that show has ever acknowledged the existence of other Earths. I also don't know if the streaming service shows are in the same universe with the movies, or in a third one. Theoretically, fans could be telling themselves these last few years that the movies are, in fact, in the same 'universe' as the CW shows, but on other Earths; however, I think The CW's Crisis event will pull that rug out from under us.
Where is 1983 Magento?
Michael Fassbender is 42 right now. In 8 years that makes him 50 which isn't too far off what Ian McKellan was in 2000 which was 61.
That graphic has the best explanation for where Captain America ends up that I've seen. I don't think the Bruce & The Ancient One scene resolves any of the plot issues.
TAO says that removing infinity stones from a timeline creates branches and Bruce says replacing the stones back to their original time and place once they are done won't affect those branches. They don't really go into what other actions could create branches or how to resolve them (like 2012 Loki taking the 2012 space stone).
It's a clever idea, and one I hadn't seen anywhere else, but I wouldn't be satisfied with it. It's not his fault, though. Part of the problem the movie is leaving me with is that I haven't read, or thought of, an explanation that I would be satisfied with.
I don't think it does, either. I'm just grasping at straws.
On the bright side, I do find the period between the two movies to be compelling story material. I sort of like that Endgame didn't erase that hole in everyone's lives, even though it's a staggering event with mind-boggling consequences. For example, one could compile a list of all the characters from the Netflix series, randomly dust 40%-60% of them, then write some fanfic about the survivors.
Images are too big...
From the sound of things, the Dark Phoenix posters are better than the movie. I love that Wonder Woman poster. I think I heard Kevin Smith say that he'd seen the costume for WW84 and it looked brighter to him than the ones she's worn so far.
Someone named it "The Thor Lewbowski".
A few eps into season 3 of Jessica Jones: I obviously didn't expect Trish to go full-Hellcat, but I'm waiting for some thug to grab a handful of that scarf she wears. She needs a Melvin Potter-type to make her some body armor.
