Haley, Wil and Stargate Pioneer may not be completely sure what they just watched but they know they are excited! Was Marvel Studios: Assembling A Universe an infomercial? Was it a documentary? Was it a Michael Bay movie on the Marvel Universe? Stargate Pioneer tried out a new term to describe it in this week’s Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. podcast covering the Marvel Studios special: Entermentary, short for Entertainment Documentary.
What better way to kick up excitement less than two weeks away from the opening day of Captain America: Winter Soldier than to enlighten fans of the structure of the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe, the breadth AND depth of the Marvel Universe, and the overarching continuity of Marvel that mandates no single Marvel cinematic product will ever really be stand alone - including the fabulous hidden gem Marvel One-Shots found on many of the Phase I and Phase II Blu-rays. And oddly enough, to do it all without Stan Lee in the special.
But did Marvel go too far and spoil fans to upcoming Cinematic Events? Why is Marvel Studios not championing some of the more notable Marvel superhero characters that it has ALREADY under it’s control? As awesome as Agent Phil Coulson is, what limitations do the current cinematic and television series stories place on his character? Is Marvel Studios slowly closing themselves off from being able to bring in new fans and new viewers as their products get more and more complicated? Why is it impossible to attend a movie these days without being spoiled by hype? And was Chris Harwick the best “super-fan” to bring in and try to relate with us common folks? These questions and more are explored in this week’s Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. podcast.
Some extras include: Why Stargate Pioneer is old, why Star Wars is like Iron Man, why Avengers Phase I is like the original Star Wars Trilogy, the trio’s true lust to see a female Marvel movie superhero lead, the Rum Daddy Hair Report, just how not messed up Robert Downey Junior was (or was not) as he signed up to play in Iron Man, and feedback from our last podcast on where to find Holdorr and who really sent Sif to Earth to fetch Lorelei but more importantly WHY.
