  1. Isn 't Travelers a Netflix original, so you could access it with your Netflix account (via streaming)?
  2. I didn't know she was in Travelers. Now I have to and check it out- thanks.
  3. Blind Items: Daredevil In The Media

    Of course they are and they are going to have Feige to have creative control over those show (unlike the other current MCU TV show. They are under their respected showrunners. And the showrunners answer the Loeb. Then its (my guess) Alan Fine and Ile Perlmutter. Feige was able to ask Bob Iger if he can go over Perlmutter's head and answer only to Alan Horn and Iger agreed). Also has any seen this from a Matthew Ball on Daredevil's cancellation? https://mobile.twitter.com/ballmatthew/status/1069649228513902593
  4. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the MCU

    Dr. Strange has opened up the multiverse- according to Feige but they haven't done any alternate realities where an alternate version of our characters would exist (at least not at this point but Dr. Strange has confirmed multiple timelines do exist in the MCU in Infinity War. So maybe alternate realities do exist in the MCU but you have to read in between the lines to find out). Although, here is a post from that scene in Spacetime: The background was that Daisy got a vision of the future and her, May, Lincoln, Mack, and Coulson all wanted to find a way to prevent it. While Fitz and Simmons claim it was impossible to do because of the 4th Dimension. Or at least Fitz did. I don't remember Simmons saying that it was impossible but she seemed to support Fitz because of the writing. Oh, and in the comics visions of the future don't always come true. In fact, in Marvel, they tend to not happen but cause a lot of problems trying to stop them.
  5. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the MCU

    For a moment I thought you meant the AoS isn't in the MCU universe (Earth-199999). But speaking about AoS' "Many Worlds" is weird because in Season 3 they claimed it wasn't possible and what will happen, will happen, no matter what. This was stated in the episode, Spacetime and it came from Fitz's own mouth. Now they are embracing the Many Worlds theory- I think its b.s.. But that is just me. It could also be that the writers are just trying to correct things since their has been talks/rumors about possible time travel to reverse the Snap from Infinity War. Also the Many Worlds theory- the one with multiple universes that are determine by choices/actions has been a staple in comic books for at least 50+ years. Both DC and Marvel has many different universes. In Marvel the universes all have a designation to them. Bench the title Earth-199999 for the MCU while the main comic universe (the one where most of the events happen on) is Earth-616.

    I guess Disney/Marvel increased the licensing fees or they demanded to have character return before they get the new streaming service out. Either way I do believe their was Disney/Marvel pushing for cancellations of the Netflix shows. That and Disney likes to own everything/ keep everything together. DD was one of Netflix's most recognized brands and they don't release viewing numbers to the public at all.
  7. Blind Items: Daredevil In The Media

    Disney + is going to only have family friendly content and I doubt that these show will go to Hulu since Netflix claims to own all of the shows. Yeah I believe that Disney/Marvel is pushing the cancellations behind the scenes.
  8. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the Media

    It looks like this show has Disney protection compared to the other "MCU" shows. But what is weird is that this show is going to air when Disney is going to have Feige do other MCU shows for their upcoming new streaming service called, Disney + but Feige has never touched this show, in terms of creative control. The timing of this announcement probably means that ABC just can't cancel it, unlike some other shows. But they probably would have to go through Disney hire-ups to even considered it and they probably just don't want to be bothered by it. Personally, 13 episodes is too much, maybe make it 8 or 6 episode seasons from now on.

    More Ali news came out today: https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/newsbeat-46017390

    This article is saying that Apu is being written off the show: https://uproxx.com/tv/the-simpsons-apu-controversy/
  11. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the Media

    I believe that you are right about what is going on behind the scenes. The reason why AoS' writers were never told about the Snap was probably related to the whole Ike Perlmutter/Kevin Feige split of 2015 and also a bit not unusual since there were rumors in circulation that even people like Tony Stark Robert Downy, Jr. didn't know what was going to happen and cast members were given fake scripts, faked scenes were filmed , etc.... Before that, I think there was at least some communication between the two. Especially between the two Whedons but overall, once Joss Whedon left, Kevin Feige's split was more like the final nail that separated the two halves, IMO. But again, it wasn't like there was any strong connective tissue between TV shows and movies, to begin with (seriously how does Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist all take place in the same New York City that Tony lives but literally leaves out the Avenger Tower in all of their NYC landscape shots? And what is wrong with the way they talk about the movie stuff I just don't understand it), but I feel like the connective tissue between TV shows and the movies are now gone. Although, I have come across lots of people that would fight tooth and nail, saying that the TV division is the same as Marvel Studios. Either they would argue something about how Disney owns both entities and/or people literally believing that the movies will acknowledge the TV side somehow. Hell, there was a rumor that Infinity War was going to mentioned Daredevil because one of the Infinity War's Lego sets had a small Daredevil easter egg, but that never happened (and I am also kind of happy that the movies ignore the TV side. Imagine a forced scene where Tony and/or Spider-Man meets Daisy. I mean are they going to acknowledge that Daisy isn't actually as strong as those Avengers or what? Or will it be something like, "oh, Daisy you are so powerful why aren't you an Avenger")? Another aspect is the Inhumans. The TV side, at least currently on the network side, has taken up to portraying the Inhumans as the replacement for the Mutants (and I just feel like things are going to get awkward on AoS once Marvel has the mutants officially back), while Feige, for the most part, has stayed away from the Inhumans. Hell, once he was able to only answer to Horn, Feige right away removed the Inhumans from the filming schedule. Also, the notorious Marvel's Creative Committee that was so much hated (and had Perlmutter as it's head) by fans was dissolved once Feige answered to Horn. At this point, I think there can be an argument to be made that AoS and the rest of Marvel TV are no longer in the MCU. You can kind of tell in Season 4 that they were still trying to bank on movie tie-ins but also trying to keep the theme vague but, IMO, also got some stuff wrong (like the scene where Senator Nadeer mentioned a "Hong Kong Incident" that some took to be a vague reference to Dr. Strange's ending but since Dr. Strange reversed time at the end this couldn't be right) and by Season 5 you have even more vague references to Infinity War. I mean at first there was a rumor that they weren't going to do an Infinity War tie-in/reference but as March approached (if I remember correctly) they announced that there will be an Infinity War tie-in. So, I feel like we were at least lead to believe that there was supposed to be a tie-in and most people were expecting something other than two vague, word of mouth, references. The Snap was the most logical but also I could see the show backing out of Snapping their own characters, because well this is AoS, I don't have high expectations for this show anymore. Edit: Fixed some grammar, crossed out Tony Stark and replaced it with Robert Downy, Jr., and added as much links as I could fine.
  12. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the Media

    I mean if they didn't know what direction Infinity War was going then why place the ending literally on the same day as the battle of Wakanda then? They should've just taken the team back before Infinity War even happened (further than the present). But even before the ending, they cram not one but two, in my opinion, lame tie-ins, to Infinity War by having the characters mentioned that Infinity War was literally happening, in the show's real-time, by word of mouth and not actually doing the one thing that everyone was expecting to happen. I mean they were doing a time-travel theme story so they could've had them just time travel to the past way before Infinity War happened to avoid anything major. I mean they had at least known that the movie will be affecting the MCU for at least the next few movies to come, right? But overall, once they were mentioned that things were happening off screen my guess was that they won't show the Snap-on screen. But come on they have to address it literally in the first few minutes of their first Season 6 episode- right?
  13. Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018)

    I just saw this and I haven't been following the Mission Impossible franchise very closely but I really liked this movie and it was fun. The only thing that I have to say that once Walker tried to frame Hunt I knew that he was the real John Lurk. Other than that it was a fun movie and as far as spy movies go it was great watching it. Although, I still don't buy Cruise as an action star but that has been my opinion my whole life but watching him do those stunts (and I heard he got injured on some) was interesting and fun to watch. Overall, Cruise, Pegg, and Rhames all have great chemistry together and that is what, IMO, made the movie for me. Ferguson's character was okay but I understand that her character was there more likely because they are setting up her character to be Hunt's new love interest in later films (well, she actually is the love interest but they did have a small nod to Hunt's first wife that he still has feelings for).
  14. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

    I saw this movie on opening weekend but I held back on posting my thoughts here about this film (until now) and about the direction where I see this franchise going. First I want to say that I absolutely loved Jurassic Park and it was one of the major films that shaped my childhood and I still seeing on on rewatches. Now, I am not going on a Star Wars diatribe here but overall, I have seen all 5 films in the franchise and this film is ranked second to the bottom for me (even lower than Jurassic Park III and The Lost World) but I didn't absolutely hated it but just that the way the film was written made the entire movie so dumb, in my opinion, to watch. Although I did have a better time watching this movie than Jurassic World (which is at the bottom of my list and my least favorite JP movie) only because they toned down, Owen, there was really no annoying nephews to rescue but they did have a clone girl, and also didn't have a character death like Zara's (Claire's assistant who got mercilessly murdered by the Mosasaur and also got tossed around by the Pterosaurs) in the movie. What is really striking is that I am surprised that they made everyone acted so dumb in the movie and got away with it. Mills was dumb, Lockwood was dumb, even Owen and Claire was dumb, but the dumbest one was the guy who was the lead hunter (the man hired by Mills and was played by the same actor who played Leeland on Monk and Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs) who just decided to try to take a souvenir tooth from that IndoRaptur. Also, why did they stick with the stupid idea of using dinosaurs as weapons? Overall, the movie was so dumb and I feel like each movie addition just brings the franchise down. Also, they totally overhyped Jeff Goldblum in this film because he was in it for like 2 minutes and that was it.
  15. S05.E22: The End

    Well, she assumed that she was going to have a daughter sometime in the future with Fitz. And if she thought she was pregnant then why drink? Hopefully, they will remove this "Fizt Simmons baby" from the plot and forgot about it.
