    Well yeah, mainly because they couldn't afford to get any of the Big Avengers Actors on the TV show. But they're included in the guy's speech, so public distrust fits.

    Also, I think the general public lumped them all under "super-powered freaks." :hugegrin:

    Kids *can* headbutt or kick people in the balls while fighting in the playground; they can't repel down buildings or dodge bullets.

    We do live in different times I guess. My apartment complex sent a notice of unsupervised children playing outside. Growing up I can't remember ever being home between school (which I walked home from alone) and supper.

    Just saying, it feels funny that shows have to protect the children from naughty ideas now.

    Sure they can. Just not very successfully.

    And there are no diamonds in coal like there was in Superman III. But that didn't stop me taking a hammer to them as a child to find out.

    Did you squeeze them really hard first?

    They should have shown the owl flying into the theatre through a window and then the guys in the van watching the musical.

    That's okay. The musical number was still a hoot.

    The Tracksuits would be better off dying of suffocation from not being able to breathe the air molecules than going through what that owl would have in store for them. It wouldn't be pretty.:eek:

    I would expect that the post-credits scene would have involved them escaping somehow. It wasn't a Netflix show, after all...

    Watch them show up randomly in other shows or movies.

    I hope they do. They'd be fun as recurring bad guys or muscle for the main villain in another story. They're the right combination of menacing and comically incompetent to give them a Bond henchman-in-the-Roger Moore Era feel. They're basically Jaws in Moonraker.

    Even though it's funny, what happened to those tracksuit mafia types must be one of the scariest things to happen to anyone in the MCU. You have shrunk and you know you will either run out of air soon or be eaten by a giant owl from their perspective.

    They have tiny guns. They'll be fine.

    Until they run out of tiny oxygen.

    Just watched the first episode, so haven't read this thread. Have two comments so far:

    1) No fucking way that costume fits Hailey Stienfeld that we'll (even if it is a little lose still) without extreme tailoring

    2). No fucking way, even in the costume, is anyone going to mistake 23 year old Hailey Stienfeld in a body hugging uniform with a full face of make up for middled aged Jeremy Renner.

    Hailee Steinfeld is about the same height as Jeremy Renner, so the size difference might not be that significant.

    And, well, the Tracksuit Mafia aren't exactly intellectual powerhouses. Plus it was dark.
