Wait, so the English that Shakespeare wrote his plays in wasn't spoken in real life?

Everytime I see this thread has a page count increase I keep hoping it's cause of legit AoU news.

Instead many of you keep feeding the beast about this non-sensical Shakespeare rubbish. Kirk doesn't get nor like it why waste time trying to convince him otherwise?

I've always remembered this since an English teacher busted me on it in junior high.

I get it, you like your ancient plays. Good for you, I wish you nothing but happiness while enjoying your ancient plays.
Ancient - you keep using this word, I don't think it means what you think it means. Oedipus Rex is an ancient play, Shakespeare is just old.

I don't think it's been reported in this thread that Stellan Skarsgard is returning for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

You know, I knew that at some point in my life, but I forgot.

But that makes my point! If you weren't taught that "wherefore" meant "why," you'd never know that because people today just don't use that word anymore. If you saw it without any historical knowledge, you'd probably think it meant "where" as well.

I don't know; I wasn't there. Neither were you. Neither was anyone in this thread. That's the point.

Nobody who was alive during Shakespeare's time is alive today. There are hundreds of years difference between then and now, and the language has evolved.

To say that it's the exact same English that we use today is just silly.

Shakespeare's plays aren't the only source of how English was spoken back then.

He should, even if he doesn't wear them - the Hulk is always in need of new pants.

Cool. I wonder what kind of role he'll play this this time? Every time we've seen him since the end of the first Thor has tied back into his possession by Loki, I wonder if that will play some kind of role here?

Yes. There's also the Thor comics.
And Thor was directed by Kenneth Brannagh, who is best known for his adaptations of Shakespeare's plays - It's All Connected!
