lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

True. I think Tigra is one of those too.

Yeah, I'm not sure.

 

Makes me wonder where Spider-Gwen falls too.

 

As I would think she would have been either with Sony or Fox, but at least Disney has the Fox side taken care of.

 

Unless she falls into her own thing despite being part Spiderman character part X-Men character.

 

 

Did you mean Gwenpool?

 

That's a tough one. The "idea" of her being named "Gwen" came IRL from Gwen Stacy but she is not Gwen Stacy. Not even an alternate version. She's just an entirely different girl who happens to be named Gwen Poole. Likewise her "hero" name being "Gwenpool" and the look of her costume were both inspired "in the real world" by Deadpool but the character herself has absolutely nothing to do with Deadpool at all origin or fiction wise.

 

So I have no idea how that works rights wise when on the one hand she was created "because" of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool but in actuality has nothing to do with them besides that inspiration. And on top of that she was created well after those rights were "sold."

 

-ZacWilliam, I would assume she's fair game, but who knows... 

 

 

Yeah, I meant Gwenpool.  :drunk

How long till they reboot the X-Men for the MCU?  Seems like the next logical step.

 

 

In the long term, I wonder how much longer they will weave a single continuity before restarting the entire thing.  10 years?  20?  It would be interesting to see a Marvel movie universe started from scratch with ALL the comic characters available under the same MCU2 umbrella.

We should not see X-Men till around 2023, as they have said they need to wait a few years since the current plan is already.  We may see nothing till Phase 5 for them.

 

However, I do think we may see some stuff from the F4 before then, they can start using the vast pool of characters related to that a lot easier.

Would a rebooted MCU work in 20 years though? Trek was rebooted after 42 years, so the MCU would still have another decade before RDJ and CE stopped being IM & CA in the publics mind.

Rebooting a universe that amassed over 20 films in over ten years would be something I'd rather not happen. Why you would want to start this masterpiece over from scratch when you have already built something the world has never seen before?

I'm more concerned with how the current universe is going to deal with

I don't know if it's really necessary to reboot the MCU, given that new characters can always take on the mantle of previous heroes. I'd be perfectly happy if it continued on, unbroken for as long as I'm around to watch them.

Honestly, I'd love for Marvel to keep the X-Men in the vault until the MCU does finally run its course. Instead of rebooting, let the Avenger-verse lie fallow and spend a decade or so creating a unified X-Men Cinematic Universe.

The MCU doesn't really need the X-Men, and the X-Men don't need the Avengers (and, I'd argue, work better without the Avengers around to spawn all sorts of fridge-logic questions).

I think the Marvel Universe works best as the Marvel Universe, full of Everything comic book: Mutants, Super Heroes, Magic, Aliens, Cave Men, Time Travel, Pulp Characters, Weird Stuff and all. The more it contains the stronger a tapestry it is.

If they did something like that, I think it would be neat if they had Wolverine as one of the Howling Commandoes, maybe even have them rescue a young Magneto from a concentration camp. But that's just me.

There is the problem with X-Men that a lot of the stories rely on mutants being a widespread established thing, which is not the case in the MCU. We are slowly moving away from "real world, but with superheroes" towards a more weird comic book-y universe, though, with the public apparently getting used to things like
