Guest on BroBible’s Post Credit podcast
“It’s really a fun and interesting and, by all imagination, completely open-ended — this can go anywhere. It’s great, I can’t wait to get in the room with the writers and figure out how all those things [connecting Armor Wars to the MCU] happen. You know, Rhodey shows up in Winter Soldier and Falcon’s show. So, it can be a lot.”

So much happened!  I don't even know how to process it all.  This is definitely my favorite episode of the show so far but I'm sure it'll keep getting better from here.  I do wonder just how many things they're seeding with this one series.  Doctor Strange 2 and Spider-Man 3 clearly, a Fox Mutant finally crossing over, Captain Marvel 2 with Monica's origin (and maybe Kamala's, if the Maximoff anomaly replaces the comics' terrigen bomb), Young Avengers with Billy and Tommy, and I've even heard that the astrophysicist and large containment vessel mentioned could lead to Fantastic 4. 
All that to say, generally the projects that serve as MCU lynchpins (like Iron Man 2 and Age of Ultron) aren't looked back on favorably.  Civil War was the rare one that managed to jumpstart characters and still hold up really well, and I'm happy to see that this show is living up to that incredibly difficult task.  Keep it up Marvel!!!
Until next time
