  1. Well, this actually came up on the first episode when Loki was debating with Mobius. It was explained by Mobius that this was supposed to happen on the sacred timeline which is why the TVA didn't do anything about it. My guess is that the nexus where past Thanos came from didn't diverge enough to cause damage to the sacred timeline. But then, how did Loki know about the Avengers going back in time trying to collect the infinity stones when it hasn't even happened yet on his point in time. I wouldn't know much since I'm still up to episode 2.
  2. I love Yelena's Character and how Florence Pugh plays her so perfectly. Her Chemistry with Scarlet Johansson is really very good, it makes the portrayal of their relationship so much believable. "You're such a poser" And then does the same pose later and says "ugh, disgusting" Really love it.
  3. Based on my understanding, if something different happens in one timeline, it branches off into a new timeline (alternate) which will create a new (alternate) universe. So the multiverse is basically different timelines that branched off from the original timeline. I've been hearing a lot about "Sacred Timeline", so I would guess this would be the Earth-199999 or the MCU? I'm sure a lot of this is explained in the Loki series, I just need to wait a few more days before I can finally binge watch it.
  4. I'm not really a fan of this kind of animation style. There are some interesting plots, and I wonder if this is ever going to cross the 616 universe, or if they're going to tackle any of the existing multiverse.
  5. I haven't watched any of the episode as I'm waiting for the series to complete before I binge watch this. It's very hard to avoid spoilers with all the memes and fan theories out there. I accidentally spoiled some of the episodes when I was trying to time the subtitles. But I am excited to watch this as the season comes to a close. For whatever plot twists that's waiting to unravel, all I can say is that it was Agatha all along.
  6. Marvel does have a tendency to propel obscure characters into a very enjoyable movie. Perhaps the success of the previous movies have spoiled the general public because of how high they set the bar. I'd like to think of this as NOT an "Avenger" movie so I'm not going to have any expectations. I don't look at the Marvel movies as an individual movie anymore that I need to rate each and everyone of them, but rather like an hour plus long series with its highs and lows.
  7. Well, I'm sure Marvel knows what they're doing. I mean, they've been doing this for like, more than a decade. Also note that Marvel has trolled fans a lot of times before, so who is to say they're not trolling us again with this. Despite my misgivings of this movie, I still might probably watch it. For the life me of, I just can't get the image of Jon Snow and Robb Stark out of my mind when I see Kit Harrington and Richard Madden.
  8. Ah, yeah.... no. The last time Richard Madden lead a group it ended up everyone getting massacred (Red Wedding).
  9. This is just saddening. We lost another genius.
  10. This gave me goosebumps:
  11. Okay, it's 4 years late, but I've started playing Near: Automata. I've only heard about this game from collaborations from another game. The music is enchanting and the characters are likeable. Although I find this to be a typical hack and slash game, it offers something unique. Story is interesting as well. It's been a long time since I felt this excited about a game.
  12. Well, I watched all 6 episodes of this and I am a bit disappointed. Although it was enjoyable, the plot was a bit predictable. Even my wife, who has never read any marvel comics, was able to predict who the power broker is. It felt "meh" to me. Good thing I ignored all the fan theories, otherwise I would have been sorely disappointed. I was expecting some kind of build up, but it just wasn't there. Perhaps I missed it?
  13. So, my hunch was right! They won't be able to finish the story with this season alone, and they have announced a part 2 to season 4. At least that's good news. They don't have to butcher the source material to finish the series.
  14. Well, I say Margot Robbie is still hot as ever. So.... is this still part of the Snyderverse?
  15. Well, what do you know, they did include a lot of scene that completely altered the narrative. After comparing the Whedon and Synder version, I'm really starting to dislike Whedon. I mean, I hate it that he made a monkey out of Captain America in the first Avengers movie, now I've seen how he butchered Justice League. I'm starting to think that Whedon un/consciously sabotaged Justice League. With the Snyder cut, it opens up a lot of opportunities with all the fore-shadowng he placed in the movie. Only time will tell if we'll see the Snyver-verse gets expanded.
  16. I was never a fan of Dub, in any language whatsoever. There are just some emotions in the original language that cannot be replicated in another language. m Suffice to say, I have not seen any dubbing that I liked.
  17. Yes!!! That's why Erskine chose him! You can make anyone into a Super Soldier, but there is only one Captain America. Lol! Magical Frisbee.
  18. I liked the 2005 series because it continued the story. Ambiance-wise, I prefer the 80's, which really captured the essence of the Manga. The 2005 series was sorta kiddie proofed, despite it being broadcast on Wowow which is somewhat of an equivalent to Adult Swim.
  19. The problem with Hollywood adaptation of Anime is that Hollywood doesn't believe that the Anime has a big enough following to make money, and really believed that the average joe doesn't have any idea what anime is about. That's the primary reason why they went and casted a famous actor/actress to draw crowds, not knowing that doing so would have resulted in backlash. To be honest, my gripe with Hollywood adaptation of anime is not really about the casting, but more about the writing. I don't understand why they have this need to adapt the story to be palatable (or dumbed down) to American audiences. The reason they are popular in the first place is because they do make use much of American culture. What makes them so appealing is because of how different they are. My statement of this might cause a lot of hate, but if they had written Dragon Ball differently using the same cast, the movie might actually be decent. Actors portray the characters based on how they see them, and in this case, ScarJo portrayed it because this is how the writers presented it to her.
  20. I do agree with Tora about the logic behind Falcon catching the Shield. I mean logically speaking, if the shield can embed itself into a tree, how could a human hand be able to catch it straight? The shield can actually lop off a head with it's sharp edges. Even as a super soldier, it's nigh impossible not to get hurt just catching it. Unless you use some kind of device to safely catch it. Attributable perhaps to comics physics? Seriously though, if it is possible for Steve Rogers to catch it, it is doable by any ordinary person. You just have to notice that while Steve catches it using one hand, Sam Wilson needs to use both hands.
  21. I may have recalled this incorrectly, but Black Widow might be the second major movie they will release on Disney+? After the gaff with Mulan, they might be taking it very carefully on how they release this.
  22. Wow, that's something new. Funny banter aside, the plot looks very interesting.
  23. Aren't they gonna drop this in Disney+ anytime soon?
