  1. That's likely on a local Fox network affiliate but that's not a Fox program. It's one the runs across the various Sinclair owned television stations.
  2. In the comics they're usually shown to have a shared power set with a few that can do certain things better than others or having developed unique abilities. But yeah they could all fly.
  3. It's just one of the Lunar New Year posters that Disney has started doing for their upcoming releases for the year. They did them for about a dozen different movies this year.
  4. Yeah I agree. If you're going to plant your flag on a point of creative contention which makes the most sense; Ahsoka Tano, after a period of tutelage under Anakin Skywalker, goes on to become a formidable warrior or Darth Maul, after being cut in half in the in the cinema classic The Phantom Menace gets some new legs via force voodoo and proceeds to wreck all comers? I know where I'd land and it's not on Campea Island.
  5. He's given Filoni flack for overpromoting Ahsoka in the two series she's appeared in for a while now. Anyone who has read the Ahsoka Tano novel (which Filoni didn't write but I'm sure was consulted on) already has an idea as to Maul's fate during the Siege of Mandalore.
  6. Yeah I know it's just an IMDB entry I'm just saying the phrasing can be interpreted different ways, whether it's a legit synop or not.
  7. "Research on the Time Stone" could be an effort by Strange to find a way to reform it or infuse something else with it's power. Since Wanda's abilities came from an Infinity Stone that would be a good pretext for involving her in his research.
  8. I know Derrickson made it known that Nightmare was a villain he wanted to play around with but is there anything indicating he's going to be the big bad beyond that? (I haven't followed the rumors on this one very closely, just caught a few set pics from WandaVision). Maybe one of the creative differences he backed out over was Marvel trying to tie Wanda back to the entity from her comic book origin; ie. Chthon.
  9. There's the obvious mashup of the two characters' names. Also the premise of the show is apparently based on Wanda creating a pocket reality where she and Vision live an idyllic American middle class life that mirrors classic television shows from the late 50's/early 60's. Maybe she watches old re-runs as a means of escape, I dunno.
  10. I don't think she hates KK. She's sung her praises often enough in the past. And she liked TLJ. But GR knows that, in the sandbox she makes her living in, there's more juice in pandering to the Star Wars malcontents, so that's what she does.
  11. The problem is what adjustments can they make to increase it's appeal in emerging markets that won't alienate a sizeable chunk of the fanbsase in it's traditional footprint that is resistant to sweeping changes in the franchise. I think The Old Republic is probably the best approach to that. A lot of fans are begging for it and it would provide a good opportunity for some broader changes to the visual palette and a narrative dynamic other than "the beleaguered underdog vs the oppressive super power".
  12. He's also wearing a Members Only jacket so suit might be a bit of a stretch.
  13. I'd agree that it is, yes. But it's also operating in a relatively empty space left in the wake of one of the more iconic comic books runs. It's a musing on what could have happened afterwards (and a damn good one at that). The MCU is still running on a mishmash formula built on existing source material because there's just so much of it left untapped.
  14. She's courting the Snyder Cut hopefuls. Once you realize she's one of those people who is so deep into Twitter that it skews all of her viewpoints many of her takes and "information" start to ... well, make more sense at least. It trended so she'll see how many subs she can mine from that particular pocket of disaffected fans.
  15. Movie's production budget gets financed through debt, Studio A acquires Studio B, picking up those existing debt obligations in the process.
  16. It's a wrap! https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/ https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 https://twitter.com/SecretsOfDune/status/1153688688615993344 status/1153688688615993344
  17. Yeah. Patty Jenkins was lined up to direct Thor 2, didn't think the script was very good and wanted to do a different take, Marvel wouldn't budge so she walked.
  18. That's the only run I'm familiar with as well. And it's supposedly the one they're leaning on the most for the movie. And it makes sense, if you're trying to set up an entire group of enhanced beings who've been around in the MCU all this time but never got involved in any of it's goings on. The Gaiman run would work quite well for that.
  19. Yeah. I detest what she does but I will say she understands how prevalent confirmation bias is within franchise fandoms as she tries to thread the needle in appealing to as broad a swathe of those fans as possible. But I also find her efforts glaringly obvious.
  20. One thing Randolph does with figures like Larson who have both large followings and a group of constant detractors is to try and appeal to both groups. It's very similar to Kathleen Kennedy, just in reverse. She has frequently sung Kennedy's praises, especially prior to TLJ. But when the negative reaction to that movie reached a certain point she decided to start making her appeal to those stomping their feet over it, even though she herself has always said she likes TLJ. That was when she ran that video about the super secret meeting of the various studio heads and started working the Kennedy would be fired if they could find anyone willing to take the job as her replacement angle. And she's not voiced the same full throated support of Kennedy she once did ever since. She wants both segments of the SW fandom to consume her paid subscription content.
