    Sounds like a plan to me!

    They're really going all in with Marvel TV series for the film characters, even if most of them are limited series.

    Chris Hemsworth said in a recent interview that he would love to series of shorts of Team Thor, reuniting with Daryl. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if that happened!

    She-Hulk feels like a better fit for TV than movies because you can play with the lawyer thing more. This also feels like the first announced series that introduces a new character (has the Hawkeye thing been officially announced?). Either way, Disney+ is very much playing in the movie sandbox by deliberately including those characters as opposed to completely independent things (like Moon Knight for example).

    My concern is whether the Disney+ shows (which are made by the movie division) will acknowledge or share continuity with the previous shows made by the separate TV division -- Agents of SHIELD, the Netflix shows, Runaways, Cloak and Dagger.

    My expectation is just that it won't significantly contradict (any more than some of the movies have some minor continuity issues), but they're not going to go out of their way to connect it either. There hasn't been any indication that they're going to use the television characters in a way that's inconsistent or anything like that.

    I hope this ends up happening, since She-Hulk is my favorite Marvel hero. But the only thing is, the show has to actually show She-Hulk a good deal to make this worth it. Honestly, I hope they do a live action (aka non-CG) She-Hulk, because in the comics She-Hulk is basically proportioned like a normal human, just green and really tall, unlike Hulk where he needs to be CG to be even remotely accurate. She-Hulk in CG would just be weird, plus they'd probably show her less if she was CG then the old crappy Hulk series used Hulk.

    That's my feeling is well. One could (and some probably have or will) argue that there are minor details from Coulson's past as established on Agents of SHIELD that were contradicted by his story in Captain Marvel, but any such inconsistencies can be fudged away in the same manner that the "8 years later line" in Homecoming (among other examples) has been.

    I'm holding a new copy in my hand. It's glorious. As you said, it's quite economical too, and it took only two days on free shipping. :)

    How trust worthy is We Got This Covered?
    I wonder if there's any chance of seeing the new characters introduced in the series, like Kate Bishop/Hawkeye, and She-Hulk in movies after the shows are over?
    If Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner leave, could they jump in as the new Hawkeye and Hulk characters?

    The thread from TIH that never got followed up on, that I still want to see is the Leader.

    On the plus side, it would allow for The Leader to quietly develop his projects long term without anyone notice. I don't know the character's history but I imagine there's some grand scheme he could be working on and his long absence could feel like a plus since he actually had a lot of time to develop stuff (and perhaps in correlation to the Marvel world events).

    If that makes any sense. I'm half awake and about to crash.

    The impression I've gotten from everything Feige has said is that the Disney+ shows would definitely carry over into the movies. Any new characters introduced there would be fair game for the movies.

    Military intelligence shows are big right now. A War Machine series could be very timely. Add She Hulk and you’ve got the makings of a super powered Law & Order.

    LOL. Like that guy recently added to the X-Men team named Wolverine? (I'm 59 btw. I traded for most of the original series as kid, I think my collection started with The Mimic.)

    Moving on, the rumor mill suggests that Marvel may be looking at developing a series for Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie for Disney+.

    https://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/marvel-developing-valkyrie-tv-show/amp

    A series showing how Asgard adapts to Earth and vice versa could be intriguing. it would also be a good place to show us what happened to Sif and if they wanted to be kind to the TV fans, they could include Peter McNichols Asgardian immigrant character, Professor Elliot Randolph, as well. After all, the Asgardians could probably use someone who's familiar with both cultures as a guide.

    I'm not surprised Far From Home is the closer for Phase 3, precisely because of Ant-Man. I don't know why Comic Book finds that so confusing. :lol:

    Hell yeah! I would love to see a Valkyrie-centric series! I like your ideas about integrating Earth with Asgardians and I completely forgot about McNichols' character. I would love to see him pop up again. And more Sif is always welcomed.

    I watched Black Panther for the umpteenth time tonight and I think it would be nice to see a Nakia-centric series, focused on her humanitarian outreach work balanced with her secret life as a spy. I doubt it would be feasible considering Lupita Nyong'o is in high demand but perhaps if the right story came along, she might do it as a limited series?

    So basically Ant-man and Spider-man are like the dessert or lighter fare after the heavy course of "Age of Ultron" and "Endgame"
