    Heck, "Fury" in FFH turning out to be Talos reminded me of that old theory about the Captain Marvel movie before it came out.

    That the Nick Fury in the past would get killed in a twist, and as a way of making amends Talos would take Fury's form and life and it would be revealed that the Fury we've seen all along was really Talos in disguise.

    Well, that's unexpected development but a very welcomed one!

    I wondered after Endgame if we would ever see any productions set during that period and I remember most people saying there's no way that would happen. Glad to see that's going to finally happen.

    I'm now very curious to see the hows and whats about this series!

    New Rockstars posted their breakdown of the She-Hulk trailer, and I think from that we may have cracked the mystery of both Bruce's arm injury and how Jen becomes She-Hulk in the first place.

    - Bruce was given a power inhibiting gauntlet for his other arm by Wong (that's what he's wearing in Shang-Chi) because he has to temporarily de-Hulk for his damaged arm to properly heal.
    - [My theory, going off what's said in the video above] Jen gets the blood transfusion from Bruce before he blasted himself with gamma radiation and first became the Hulk, but after he had injected himself with the supersoldier serum derivative. Between the two Snaps - a massive blast of 'mostly gamma' radiation across the world - Jen's powers are unknowingly activated. Jen's already pretty high-strung, but it takes the near-death trauma of the van wreck seen in the trailer to trigger her first transformation.

    Disney is a top notched company and their track record in selling a product is by far best I'd ever seen. I don't ever remember this company advertising rushed and unfinished work; what I'd seen from them has always been polished. This has to be the finished product... if there's any correction which needs to be made there would be a delay. Since the date is set its safe to say this is what will be seen. YIIKES!!!

    Surprised there hasn't been a supernatural western titled Uncanny Valley by now. Jonah Hex 2: Uncanny Valley

    That said, I'm surprisingly unbothered by what we've seen so far FX wise.

    OK, that is very unexpected. I wonder if this means we'll be getting goods Skrulls vs bad Skrulls then? Or are the going to be bad guys?
    I'm pretty sure we've gotten Marvel trailers with unfinished effects before. They've got three months, and a lot of shows and movies keep working on things right up until release date, so there's plenty of time for them clean things up before the first episode is released.

    I was hoping they would recast Jessica Jones so that she was the same age as Peter so they could do that scene from the comics but I suppose they can’t know considering No Way Home.

    With all the comic accurate costumes lately- Spidey at the end of NWH, Hawkeye & Kate Bishop, GotG set pics for v3, Scarlet Witch, those Loki's, Falcon as Cap, Moon Knight, etc etc...
    -Can they please just put Luke Cage in a yellow T-shirt?

    I know he was at some point in a Netflix show, but it wasn't very often was it? I never saw his show tbf. Genuine question- throughtout all his appeareances in Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and The Defenders, how many times did Colter actually wear a yellow t-shirt?

    I was under the impression it's hardly ever, but I could be wrong. As I say I didn't see it

    I don't have an Instagram account, but I was able to see the picture at the link. Are others unable to do so? Why would that be?

    Depends. I have that issue on my phone if I'm viewing something on in-app browser that links to an Instagram post but doesn't jump to my Instagram app and I don't have the log-in info in that app (if that makes sense).

    Might also be a regional thing.

    I am 100% there for more Jessica and Luke. None of the Disney+ shows have lived up to their Netflix shows in my opinion. Well, maybe Moon Knight.

    If we do get to meet Luke and Jessica again, I hope it's as a married couple raising a young daughter. After all, it's been about 8 years in-universe since we've seen these two characters. At this point it's far too much to ask for that we see an actual resolution to Luke's cliffhangers, but those threads can be tied up with a little bit of dialogue.

    Beh, the Netflix shows all went for that gutless "Grounded" aesthetic. None really could match WandaVision in terms of creativity.

    I disagree with the notion that being grounded is gutless or uncreative. If anything, I think it made the stories compelling for a different reason. Seasons one of Daredevil, Luke Cage, and especially Jessica Jones greatly demonstrate that.

    But above all else, I disagree with the implied notion that it's not possible to love both grounded and cosmically crazy series as valid storytelling methods at the same time. Note: That's a critique not just these couple of posts, but also in general ever since the Disney+ shows has been going full steam.
