Captain Marvel just dropped (haha, pun intended).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1BCujX3pw8

Nothing sets a story in the late 90's better than a Blockbuster Video.

It's going to be interesting because they have quite the narrative pinhole to navigate. They have to do a Captain Marvel origin story that takes place outside of the contemporary MCU so there aren't any continuity issues but then loop it back so that Captain Marvel can undo the #snapture but do so in a way that everyone doesn't ask, well why didn't we just call Captain Marvel in the first place to kill Thanos? Plus they are going to have a two eyed Nick Fury and a young Phil Coulson so S.H.I.E.L.D is part of the story line but infiltrated by Skree so that means S.H.I.E.L.D was infiltrated by both Skree AND Nazis? Was that organization ever not infiltrated?

All that and they have to open the door for HtD in Phase 4. 

Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Captain marvel trailer 2 dropped.

Eh.

11th hour origin story as the solution to a decade of movies. Hopefully it isn't just a plot device and the original avengers have more of a role.

I want to like it, but I'm just not there. Given how the Cree have been bad guys in the TV version of the MCU plus Guardians, plus the #Snapture unwind stuff.....this is going to have to be an exposition heavy movie to explain to untie all the Gordian knots and I don't know if that's going to be that great.

 I just watched the trailer.

Theory - Cree as the bad guys - maybe it has something to do why Captain Marvel disappears for 20 years and Nick Fury is "paging" her at the end of IW?

I believe it's the "Kree" which we are discussing.  Cree is a native tribe in northern Canada, IIRC.

Maybe they are really an alien race.

Probably just a week like they did for IW. More uninterrupted box office time before other big name movies come out in May
Down 5 with 1 second left, doable

I'm struggling a bit to understand the concept of the Quantum Realm and the associated time vortexes one might find therein.  Evidently, all this is going to play a big role even beyond Endgame.

What I would like to know most of all is whether the technology used to open/navigate the Quantum Realm could also be retooled to summon a Dark Overlord.

I'm scared that as marvel's universe expands the early films' bad guys will lose their luster or they'll end up in the DC tv universe issue of a bunch of different dimensions that it starts to get difficult to keep track.

If by Dark Overlord you mean Howard the Duck from the 80s.....I think that's exactly the technology

Now that Netflix is cancelling all the street level series, it'll be interesting to see what Marvel/Disney does with the characters. They can't use any of the Netflix series characters for two years. That means July 2020 for Luke Cage would be the soonest, though with character crossover like Misty & Colleen, they would probably be better off waiting until 2021.

That seems like a long way off, but if they incorporated new characters, it might not be. Disney+ could do Moon Knight in winter 2019, The Hood in summer 2020, then that next winter start back up with Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil all leading to Defenders Season 2 with The Hood as the main villain. With other series coming to Disney+, it would also allow them to roll those shows into the greater MCU.

The prophecy is sealed.  The MCU shall begin and end with Howard.

I'm still kind of disappointed the MCU didn't introduce Adam Warlock before A4 (Besides the GOTG 2 end credits).

I'm gonna go ahead and guess that Captain Marvel takes over his role but also hoping to see some of the Eternals pop up as well. Too bad they really screwed up the Fantastic 4. Galactus would have been a nice cameo.

Not actually part of the MCU but Into the Spiderverse is fantastic. I highly recommend it. It may be my new favorite marvel movie.
