    That's a good point, though I was more talking about his demeanor/character/spirit than origin. Many of the characters have different origins (Banner will never be hit by the explosion of a bomb he's testing in the desert, for example) but they're good at maintaining the spirit for the most part.

    Speaking of. We need Rick Jones!

    He is listed under Banner's known associates in the opening credits of The Incredible Hulk.

    Your picture didn't come up for me.
    It's nice to finally get confirmation of Adam Warlock after the set up in Vol. 2.

    These issues are a lot more complicated than you make it sound, and there is a lot of legal technicality mumbo jumbo involved that the majority of us could never begin to understand.

    Jebus, another years wait for Indiana Jones. These delays are depressing.

    Disappointing but it's not too bad. Only a few months in most cases.

    Seems like the reason isn't covid or theater issues, but more a case of Marvel just finding it too tough to work on 14 different productions all at the same time. The huge ramp-up in Disney+ tv shows was too much when they also increased the movies up to 4 or 5 a year.

    Maybe it is to get out of the way of The Batman?

    A little disappointed, but at this point they're all so far out that it doesn't make that much of a difference.

    Is Paramount still involved? Because it's not Indy without

    Apparently the whole pre D+ era of Marvel tv was forced on Kevin Feige. He wanted to use some of the newly reacquired characters in the movies but executives blocked it on the idea that the Avengers/Guardians were enough for him to work with and the returning characters would be better used as the backbone of a 'planned tv empire'. Which he got no say in.

    Another reason to expect the MCU won't remain true to the old tv canon moving forward.
