Maybe they wanted to avoid the backlash of "Oh no, they killed Captain America"?

Evans and RDJ are absolutely iconic in their roles, to the extent that they are practically living them IRL. But RDJ announced he's filming Sherlock Holmes 3. And Evans has always said that he wanted to move on to other projects, and he played a very different character in Gifted. To appreciate his acting range, you need to see his earlier movies, like Push, Fantastic Four, or What's Your Number (you see a LOT of him in that one, and it's also boasts a who's whom* of the male leads of action and sci-fi).

Still, these are comic book movies. The characters don't have to stay dead.

Okay, I just found this posted in Callahan's Crosstime Saloon, and had to share! NO idea who the artist is... :D

And yeah, anyone who would put a beverage on the edge of a pool table isn't really thinking very clearly... :nono:

Marvel reportedly bringing Winter Soldier-Falcon series to Disney streaming service

I kind of love this idea. :)

I wonder what timeline that will be.

I was hoping for a Tales of Suspense adaptation where the Winter Soldier teams up with Hawkeye to find out if Natasha is really dead. It's amazing. One of the characters is a giant talking bear.

We finally watched Black Panther last night, the first (and almost certainly the last) Marvel movie that I have seen.

I liked the music.

I'm not saying that Black Panther is a bad movie, not at all! Nor is it a bad Marvel movie, but I will say it did not strike me as having been made in the same vein as the other Marvel movies. There was not nearly the level of humor that the other movies bring - for good reason, it would not have fit the overall tone, but just to sort of caution not to judge too much based on Black Panther.

Again. Good movie, I did enjoy it. Would suggest not considering it indicative of the broader MCU movies.

If I had to suggest a good movie to start with, either Iron Man (the first one) or The Avengers (the first one) would be a much more expected tone for the series of movies in general.

Not to say you would enjoy them more...

I admit to having very low expectations in some of my entertainment choices.

I did actually like some aspects of the movie (not just the music). And I am relatively sure that I liked it quite a bit more than I would like any of the other Marvel films. yov is correct that it isn't my cup of tea.

Sunny, I haven't seen if Chris responded but I imagine he will. I've seen the waffle maker before on Amazon. Apparently it's a decent appliance, but I don't make waffles.

Did you know you can make cookies in a waffle iron? Because you can totally make cookies in a waffle iron. Just in case you didn't know that, I thought I'd share. Because waffled cookies.

:pancake: [rabbit with a cookie on its head]*

:cheerleader: Love you guys! :toast:

Frelga, you are making me want to go against my better judgement, and join Twitter! :nono:



* Or maybe it's a waffle...

And that's a lot more than I'd be willing to pay for a waffle maker!

Sunny, that's odd. The American site has it for $21, as does Walmart.

I follow some really cool sources on Twitter, on topics from medieval manuscripts to funny animal videos, and it's great for on the ground, up to the minute news when something big is happening. As long as I avoid reading too many replies and ignore bots...

Voronwë has spoken! :bow: And as I recall, he was the one who added that thing to the board.
