Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

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?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@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).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

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?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

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

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

?!?

I didn't think about an MCU Armor Wars that involves Dr. Doom! That would rock! (Wait, wrong element. That would be Metal!). Buuuuut it wouldn't be right without Tony. I suppose Morgan could take the lead though, that would be cool.

 

Honestly, after watching the MCU do a character like Thanos justice (Even worked in hints of his Death worship in Endgame with him not being disturbed by his own decapitation..."Destiny fulfilled" and all that), I just REALLY want to see the MCU finally do Doom properly.

Btw, I'm sure other folks would have noted it already but, on the action figure front, where is FAT THOR?!

And what the hex is this misleading piece of plastic? It shows the Titan Hero Series Thor in his time heist suit and he's NOT FAT!



Must be like the fake trailers and stuff. Thor looks cool in the heist suit but... not movie accurate.

A casual Fat Thor in-action figure would be pretty nifty.

 

Purposeful misdirection and not providing those producing product all the details of the movie.

One of those things I didn't think about until now. Man having the worlds population double overnight is going to have some massive repercussions for Earth. I mean they had 5 year without them.. There isn't going to be the infrastructure to support that kind of population anymore, at least not right away. Like they wouldn't be growing the same amount of crops and livestock. Polution is going to suddenly skyrocket as well.

 

Then there are the people who moved on and found new loves but have their old ones back. People who couldn't move on and now their returned companions will find them gone.

 

Might have actually been better to just leave it be in the end. Realistically the un-snappening would wreck shit all over again.

Wakanda tech ought to stay Wakanda tech.

 

Although, an Armor Wars event that sees Stark-tech go native that ends up being the result of a cyber attack from a unassuming Eastern European Dictatorship like say...Latveria?

 

I can dig it.  And especially with the MCU impact that what we're dealing with is Tony's LEGACY rather than his copyrights.

 

 

 

 

 

Let's be honest, what would Daredevil do in a fight like that? Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, heck even the Punisher I could see...but DD? As much as I love DD he'd get torn to shreds in seconds.

 
Oh please. If Okoye, Natasha, M'Baku, and Clint can fight those battles in Infinity War and Endgame, than DD could too. 
 
 
All of those rely less on fists than Dare Devil does.

Turn that around. They all rely on their weapons more than Daredevil does. Matt can always pick up a sword or piece of rebar. His strength is that he's honed his body itself into a weapon, and that's doesn't always have to rely on a traditional weapon.

 

 

He has to rely on a traditional weapon when he is fighting Thanos monsters.

Kevin Feige did an AMA with Reddit and may have teased something for the Shang-Chi movie.

 


Recently, there have been rumblings that Shang-Chi will find a way to incorporate The Mandarin (the real one) and the Ten Rings. Asked if there are plans in place for either of those to be touched on in the MCU moving forward after the Iron Man franchise failed to really delve into it, all Kevin Feige would say is "Yes." Take that as you will, but it sounds like fans of the villain will finally be happy.

 

 

 

aka "we're doing the Mandarin so fanboys will shut up about Iron Man 3 finally."

 

Also, "sorry about Iron Fist" I'd guess...

I mean, the Mandarin at the time of Iron Man 3 was still pretty far fetched from an MCU standpoint. They'd only just done Avengers and introduced the Chitauri, and the Asgardians were being marketed as a advanced, alternate-alien species.

 

The idea that the Mandarin got ten rings of power from a crashed spaceship of alien dragons would have been a bit of an escalation in the world building. But Post-GotG and Ragnarok? Yeah, the MCU is ready for the Mandarin.

Actually that's a valid point. Mandarin's rings of power would have been a legitimate game changer in the fight against Thanos, and it's not technology that you can just poof away after a film like Extremis was. The rings themselves have been established as being a power in and of themselves.
