    It was an Oscar-winning dramatic actress phoning in a throwaway role that could have been played by anybody. It's akin to Sean Penn appearing in a Marvel movie.

    :rolleyes:

    It might be weird or disappointing, but that's hardly insulting.

    AfterM*A*S*H* is too. I've been meaning to check out at least one or two episodes on there, but I haven't yet. I'm to young to have watched M*A*S*H* when it originally aired, but I've watched the whole series more times than I can count on channels like FX and MeTV. I've never seen a single episode of AfterM*A*S*H*, but I am curious about it.

    They did the same thing in the Simpsons getting Elizabeth Taylor to do one line as Maggie. No one complained.

    Respected actors have been doing those kind of parts for decades, I don't really see where it's a problem.

    Glenn Close, Robert Redford, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Robert Downey, Jr., John C. Reilly - all Oscar-winning or nominated actors in Marvel movies.

    I suppose it was okay for Sean Penn to appear on Two and a Half Men, though.

    Susan Sarandon didn't seem to find the role insulting. She chose to do the part, because she found it interesting.. So perhaps we could respect the choices she's made, like any other actor?

    She chose to do it. So, perhaps there is an assumption of insult when none is actually present??? :shrug:
    I keep reading about AfterM*A*S*H so I would be curious to check it out.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    Yeah, Disney has a pretty good relationship with the press. It would be a shame for Sean Penn to jeopardize that by, y'know, ASSAULTING them! :p

    Let's not forget about Cate Blanchett, Jeff Bridges, Brie Larson, Michael Douglas, William Hurt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ben Kingsley...
    Heck, if we're folding the Sony movies into the MCU, we can add Jared Leto to the list.

    It's not merely getting an Oscar which makes certain roles a waste. But to go from LORENZO'S OIL and DEAD MAN WALKING to a flimsy transparent ''role'' in SPEED RACER strikes me as slumming a great talent.

    Glenn Close's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY role is equally thin. Give them something more decent to do.

    That's a valid criticism (albeit not one I agree with) but, again, that's not insulting.

    I'm a bit surprised to see him doing a series rather than one of the movies. They have said the movies and shows will crossover, so I guess there's a chance his character could also show up in a movie.

    First official look at Winter Soldier and WandaVision during Superbowl. I'm sure the clip will hit YouTube soon.

    Here it is for all three of them (Loki, too!):



    Wanda is wearing the classic leotard and head-thingy in a very fast shot!

    And a very pregnant belly in her '60's hippie' phase. So looks like we're throwing the twins (Vin and Viv?) in there too!

    EDIT: CONFIRMED. A quick glimpse of 80's Wanda/Vision looking down at TWO cribs!!!

    Would be funny if they were aged up and played by Ashley and Mary-Kate. :lol:

    (Yeah, yeah, I know they're retired but still...)

    Vin and Viv are fully synthetic. Wanda's kids with Vision are Billy (Wiccan, though I think he's changed it now) and Tommy (Speed).
