NEWS [29:17]




Russo Bros put fake scenes in Endgame trailers

"preserve the surprise of the narrative."

“We consume too much content,” added Russo. “So at our disposal are lots of different shots that aren’t in the movie that we can manipulate through CG”


Taskmaster rumored to be Black Widow villain

Andre Holland (Moonlight, The Knick) rumored as front runner

Taskmaster can mimic any power he can observe (“photographic reflexes”) (except for Deadpool, who is too unpredictable)


Florence Pugh reportedly joins Black Widow

Reportedly cast in role we discussed Emma Watson rumored in last time

Marvel had no comment on the news.

It’s unclear whether “Black Widow” will be an origin tale or set after the next “Avengers” movie.


Rumors for Shang Chi casting

Steve Yeun from “The Walking Dead” rumored to be front runner

Also Mike Moh from “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (and Inhumans)




Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool the only character not being rebooted by Fox/Disney merger

Reynolds posted a Deadpool picture in Mickey Mouse ears

Disney will decide fate of New Mutants after seeing it

Kevin Feige is said to have met with several members of the X-Men old guard in recent months

Helping mom clean out cabinets. She had a box of baking soda that expired in 2005. Do you think the free #Blockbuster DVD or VHS rental offer on the box is still good?

I'm torn. Knowing how strongly I disliked the movie, and that I'm sure you are all celebrating it as the best thing out of Marvel, I'm concerned of the effects of tuning in. Will you convince me it isn't as bad as I thought, or will your swooning over what I consider horrible directing just annoy me more?

(hey guys, I'm still working my way through your backlogs.  Just wanted to share some speculation I have.  Great podcast, by the way)


Just had a thought while rewatching Age of Ultron prepping for Endgame. There have been rumors that Captain Marvel's sequel may not be taking place in present day.  At first I wasn't sure about it.  Its a little close to what Wonder Woman's doing. Then things started making sense.


Ronan obviously has much more story to tell.  He didn't leave the movie on a clear path to where he was in the first guardians movie.  So he could definitely return if the sequel takes place before 2014.  But there's also the Supreme Intelligence.


This movie was the first time we ever heard the AI Kree leader mentioned at all.  None of the Kree on Agents of Shield refer to it, and it doesn't come up at all between Nova Prime and the Kree she was skyping with.  So where did it go? Well, what if the Captain Marvel sequel deals with another Infinity Stone? It could be that in order to save itself from Carol, it transferred itself into the mind stone, which the Kree potentially could have used to alter/erase Carol's memories when they took her (because that still isn't explained).  Or perhaps the Supreme Intelligence IS the mind stone, which could explain how an AI is powerful enough to run its own planet.  Maybe in a post credit scene, a defeated Ronan shows up to Titan with the stone for Thanos, who we know lends it out to Loki later on. 


There are some small things that work against the theory.  Phases 1-3 have been titled the Infinity Saga, so it might seem out of place to stick a stone into a Phase 4 movie if we're going to leave Endgame not worrying about them.  But it would be a nice explanation for Age of Ultron and why the consciousness in the Mind Stone was so powerful and so skewed towards evil.  It could also explain why Vision apparently didn't get any of Ultron's malice, if the creation of Ultron separated the Supreme Intelligence from the stone.  


Just some thoughts.  Until next time!
