His knowing sign language makes a little more sense now.
It's a nice scene, but I can see why they cut it. It doesn't really add anything.
MIB was on TV the other week and my husband was boggled when I told him that Edgar was the same guy who plays Kingpin.
I beat he'd also be shocked to find out he was also in Full Metal Jacket.
He also played Thor the same year as Full Metal Jacket... sort of
The show already established that he used to look after her sometimes while her father was working (and that fact she's the only one that calls him "Uncle" should also be a clue), so there's really no new information here than in the scene where we just see him pinch her cheek, it's just presented differently.
And Crow 2 IIRC.
D'Onofrio? Definitely not in Crow 2.
I was even more surprised to find out the same guy who played Dr Brenner in "Stranger Things" was in that with Vincent.
Ah, see, that's where I first saw Matthew Moline and I've been following his career ever since. I was thrilled when he popped up in Stranger Things.
Wow, you are right. I have this memory of him being a villain in that movie. I must be conflating two films I saw around the same time.
Memory's the 2nd thing to go.
I forget what the 1st is.
Well this was certainly a show that was on. Mildly diverting at best.
Having rewatched that last year, it still never occurred to me at the time who the actor was
I'm reading that the Assembled episode is up.
Confirming above. It's up a week early.
A few tidbits...
The backstory on Rogers the Musical is that all the surviving / current Avengers were invited to the premiere, but Clint was the only one who showed up.
Heidi Moneymaker, who has been Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow stunt double going all the way back to 2010, was the stunt coordinator on the show.
We see a test shot of Maya in the white handprint makeup from the comics.
They used a special camera-car for Clint and Kate in order to film the car chase. Sort of a car on a flatbed platform.
Pizza Dog was played by Jolt, and Jolt is a very, very good girl.
When Kevin Feige suggested that Kingpin be the big bad in the final episode everyone else in the Skype meeting thought he was joking.
I have to wonder how Jeph Loeb, Joe Queseda and all of Perlmutter's other Yes-Men who tried to keep Marvel TV and the Movies separate feel. If they're finally realizing it was a bad idea or if they think Feige stole their jobs.
A lot of the movie people wanted them separate too. Joss didn't want to use Coulson for example, because he said that in his mind he is still dead. I think SHIELD was still planning to pretend to be in the movie universe until post snap, right?
They like kind of mentioned something happening in wakanda but never mentioned anyone disappearing? That's what I gather, but I never watched the last 2 season of AOS so I don't know for sure.
They had already stopped directly referencing the movies quite a while before The Blip, but never did anything to outright contradict them either. There is some timey wimeyness around the time of The Blip, so you could use that to explain the seeming lack of The Blip in AOS.
Finally remembered to watch the Assembled episode and my biggest takeaway from the whole thing is that it's very clear everyone had a lot of fun making that series. That really brought a smile to my face.
Which is a little silly considering two are dead, one is presumed dead (but is actually really old), and one is off planet. So really only Bruce stood up Clint.
Which immediately made me think of the crazy rig Children of Men had to develop on set to film that extended single shot of the car driving away backwards while being chased by motorcycles. They didn't mention the film here but it's clear that film paved the way for this rig.
That was wonderful. It was also great to hear from Vincent, even if only for a couple of minutes. They carefully avoided the subject of whether Kingpin is actually dead or not...
(Of course he's not)
