Damn, that looks awesome.
So Coleman's character is a Falsworth. I did not know that.
So the first episode is dropping two days before my birthday. Happy birthday to me, indeed.
When this comes out the soundtrack should keep the orchestral stings every five seconds.
I think this is the first time in quite a while that I've been really excited about a MCU production again.
I wouldn't say I'm excited exactly, but this is the most interested I've been in an MCU project's plot detail in a while.
For example: Fury's gravestone rather jumped out at me, since that's not his fake one from CA:TWS. Could we be getting a "classic" WWII Commando/60's spy Fury flashback?
The new trailer is pretty nice but I got more out of the Vanity Fair article. Either way, I'm still pretty excited!
How do you figure? The Vanity Fair article only mentions she's an MI6 agent that Fury has known for a long time.
I noticed that it was a different gravestone but I don't know if that actually means anything. Wouldn't be the first time a set changed but was suppose to represent the same thing.
We've actually known that Olivia Coleman was going to be playing a Falsworth for quite some time.
Something I noticed on my third watch through; who is G'iah back to back with at 1:36? Because on my third watch through, my mind suddenly jumped to G'iah's childhood friend Monica Rambeau, who once told her to never change her eyes and was recruited by a Skrull at the end of WandaVision.
Oh, we did? Huh, I hadn't heard about that and it's odd that the Vanity Article didn't mention it and instead referred to her character vaguely.
Nice catch! I completely forgot about the Monica/Skrull connect. I just figured it would connect to The Marvels but since this show happens before it...
That one flew under the radar, for me at least. Thanks.
And in other MCU news, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 soundtrack list has been released and can be listened to on Spotify.
A good collection of songs that I know and love and those I've never heard of. I'm especially happy to see Florence + the Machine's "Dog Days Are Over" included.
It's not just a different stone, it's a different quote, and it's in a totally different location. The cemetery in 'Winter Soldier' was clearly a well kept and only sparsely wooded one. This looks like it's deep the woods, in the middle of nowhere, and hasn't been tended to in many decades. Indeed, it looks like the same woods Fury is approaching early in the trailer. The one with the abandoned guard post, open gate, and high fencing with radiation warning signs all over it.
Put those two things together and it adds up to a secret SHIELD graveyard for fallen agents, from the days where they operated entirely in the shadows. So THAT name on THAT stone in THAT place just screams old school Nick Fury to me.
Indeed I think even the comics have gone with the notion that old white Nick Fury is the namesake of new black Nick Fury, and that the latter's father served with the former (KIA, presumably?) So if this is where they're finally going to get into Fury's history, I wouldn't be surprised if that's where they go.
Well, that's what I meant about different set standing in for the same location.
But fair point about it being a different quote. I honestly couldn't remember what the quote was on the first gravestone.
You might be onto something which be cool, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's nothing for the reason I've stated.
It was the Pulp Fiction quote, because of course it was! This one however is a very different Bible quote; John 15:13, which is fairly ubiquitous when it comes to war memorials. That alone tells us something.
... has anyone checked on what David Hasselhoff's up to lately?
the grave stone also looks old.
I only noticed through closed captioning.
