I got a bit of a Winter Soldier vibe and it has Taskmaster. I'm in.

I hope this makes like 10 trillion dollars and Disney is like "Huh, maybe we shouldn't have killed her off and waited so long to give her a solo movie..."

I guess? Didn't really grab me. I've never thought she was all that interesting a character in the comics either simply because they could never go beyond recycling her core story: "Maybe she will betray the male character she is presently being friendly to! Maybe she has a secret she is not telling!" Like, when they dropped the bomb that the Black Panther had been spying on the Avengers, that was surprising and interesting. With Black Widow, the question is really: when is she not spying/double-crossing/etc. Which is a great question of characters in a spy millieu, but when they cross into a non-spy story, at some point, it makes them one-note.

It is only a few seconds but the action seemed punchier than usual for marvel.

I'm a little disappointed they don't seem to want to vary the formula even a little for a character like this who could have an obvious low risk James-Bond-but-a-girl approach instead. OTOH the trailer screams 'but hey look we're really good at doing this exact thing' so sure why fuck around with what works.

Too little to tell... the small sample seemed a bit random.  It gave me the vibe of a sitcom spinoff where a character you've seen for 8 years suddenly reveals they have a bunch of friends in another city that you've never seen before, but that they consider family...

What can you tell me about gaming and fun in Charlotte, NC?

The trailer didn't excite me enough to get over the major MCU fatigue I have right now.

I don't think you guys are giving the gal who was the Asian Black Panther enough credit.

we did it gang, we successfully actually impeached trump

now! [claps hands] on to the next, more important step of this — we must convince ourselves this is meaningless and we have accomplished nothing in an even symbolic sense and will still lose. let's have a big "nothing matters" on the count of three! one, two

If anything being a prequel for a dead character is going to lower interest.

Yeah this movie should struggle in theory, probably depends on the excitement level just to see something MCU related that may build up if this is the first MCU film of 2020? But again prequels are fucking lame as hell. Super disappointing that this is the Widow solo flick we get.

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

In the scheme of the MCU this doesn't matter, but this looks like what I would want out of a black widow movie.

It could eventually matter in the MCU if they have Florence Pugh go on to be the new Black Widow in future movies (which still isn't likely to increase the box office grosses on this of course).

I'm betting this does matter for the MCU ... I bet we hear the word Thunderbolts will likely begin in this film and carry forward for Phase 4 and 5.

You know, that's not a bad thought--imagine Red Guardian as the first Thunderbolt, Zemo from Civil War, Ghost from Ant-Man and the Wasp, etc.--not so much "the villains are heroes, whoops it's a trick" as "covert ops team that could turn on the good guys at any moment". I bet they're waiting to see what Suicide Squad directed by Gunn looks like so they can go with a different tone to whatever he does.

I've had this since before the second Avengers. I just don't care about any of these anymore.

Switched to watching on TV around then. They are still good, but TV good.
