    It's going to be a bit confusing that both Ben Kingsley and Kingsley Ben-Adir have been MCU villains.

    Thank you. It was bugging me, I knew his named seemed similar to someone else's, but I couldn't think who it was.

    Maybe they can get David Keith and Keith David to sign up as well.

    Given that one of them won the academy award for playing Gandhi in 1982 and the other didn't, I sincerely doubt that.

    I think the character is great, but she doesn't have a ton of source material.

    I'd love it if they bring back Vincent D'Onofrio, though.

    Damn, a spin-off already for a series that won't be released for at least six months (just a ballpark guess)? Marvel is feeling very confident these days!

    I know nothing about the character so I can't really comment one way or the other about her.

    Kingpin and Echo are tied together in comics history, somewhat...

    Assuming there aren't any further moves, this means we're going to have four MCU movies between early July and Christmas. :eek:

    I also wonder if they'll move up Loki's debut now that Black Widow will no longer be releasing in May.

    I doubt it because they have a Clone Wars show coming out then.

    Good point, I'd forgotten about that.

    Do I remember correctly that they said in "The Shield" that human beings born with powers (therefore not mutated by terregen mists, experiments, infinity gems etc) were incredible rare but still existed? Did anything in the following productions contradict that?

    You mean Agents of SHIELD? I've never seen The Shield, but from what I know of it, that doesn't sound like something this guy would say...

    So let's talk Young Avengers. Cassie is now a teen in Ant-man corner of the universe. Billy and Tommy ceased to exist, but they've been introduced, and with a gimmick that could lead them to adolescence at a moment's notice. Kate is on her way when the Hawkeye series finally shows up on Disney+. And unless I am sorely mistaken we met Eli Bradley this weekend at a house in Baltimore.

    That just leaves Teddy. Secret Invasion? Captain Marvel 2? Where will our resident Skrull-Kree hybrid make his appearance? At this point Marvel Studios either clearly has thoughts on this subject (not necessarily plans, but certainly thoughts) or they are just trolling, because that's three consecutive projects that have introduced a YA teammate, with a fourth already confirmed and cast and filming.

    Keep it there? Or do you reach for Ms. America? Try and shoehorn Ms. Marvel into the fold? And are we thinking film or Disney+ series? Questions are burning a hole in my mind, not least of which is... Iron Lad? Ant-Man & Wasp 2 gets us the key ingredient if you want to go whole hog with it.

    Probably be years before anything materializes, if it ever does. But I'll admit my brain works feverishly to make these connections every time one of these characters shows up, or gets aged up to the correct age bracket.

    We already know America will be in DS 2.

    I forgot about Teddy. As you said, there's plenty of opportunity in either of those locations, though.
