    Question for you guys - why after Cap wields Mjolnir, when he's attacked Thanos, after that when Thanos comes back at him and smashes Cap's shield - before he starts hitting him, why does he remove his helmet? :joy: I can't work it out

    Might just be that, I can't think of any tactical reason why he'd do it, it makes no sense otherwise :joy:

    I have to go back and watch but I cant remember how it goes off the top of my head. Like I can't see it in my head. But I agree Haha.

    Just talking about the movie makes me want to watch it again...I think I'm gonna do a viewing of Infinity War and Endgame back to back.

    Currently watching it!! I absolutely love it and I believe that is pretty close to how it would be in today's society if "supes" were real.

    I'm reading monthly comics again for the first time in years with Jonathan Hickman's X-Men book.

    This is way more ambitious than what he did with the Avengers. He's embraced that their publishing history and continuity is a convoluted mess. And he made Moira MacTaggert of all characters the centerpiece of everything.

    TLDR from #2 of House of X is...
    She's now lived 9 full lives and has reincarnated into a 10th, but every time she reincarnates, she "starts over" from the same point of conception and relives her life from this point again with all prior knowledge, thus allowing her to make changes to the timeline using all her past experience. So every time she dies she resets the timeline and has another go at getting it right. Probably making new realities every time.

    From the back page we see there were 10 lives so far with the 11th probably being the next big reboot to clean stuff up. Life 6 was conveniently omitted which will probably come back into the story later. All continue after her death.

    Really curious how this goes. When he did his Avengers book he pretty much influenced the movies a ton, as opposed to the other way around. X-Men for sure need to be cleaned up to set the stage for Marvel's mutant movies.

    It looks like Sony pulled the plug as they want Holland to play a bigger role in their Spiderman universe movies, which would be fine in normal circumstances but they can't be trusted at this point.

    This is terrible news for the MCU though, Spidey was definitely the biggest hero they had left. All that character development throughout Civil War, Homecoming, IW/Endgame and now Far Frome Home is suddenly in the gutter.

    Hoping Disney leaked this to force Sony back to the table.

    If I’m understanding everything correctly...can’t really blame Disney for wanting a more 50/50 split on the cofinancing. Supposedly the current deals have Disney getting absolutely robbed by Sony despite Feige being arguably one of the biggest/most important contributors to the success of those movies.

    True but since sony has all the rights, it's in their right to say no and they did. Unfortunately the fans lose out the most.

    Man idk why it hit so hard but this actually upset me today and ruined my day for a bit Haha

    I find it a bit confusing tbh.

    Oh I agree. I understand Sony has the rights lol. But I completely understand Disney’s point of view on the matter, especially after watching FFH cross the $1billion mark. Disney’s doing all the work and only getting a fraction of the revenue. Can’t blame from for wanting something closer to a 50/50 split on certain things. If Disney is coughing up all the money to produce the movie and only getting a fraction back, it’s entirely understandable.

    Feige is supposedly a big Spider-Man fan, so I’m hoping they work everything out.

    Agree that it’s the fans that suffer.

    Well the 50/50 split reportedly directed at the cofinancing split...in my head, “financing” is down the cost of producing the movie, it seems like currently one studio is forking up more money than the other (probably Disney). Apparently Disney only makes “5% on the first dollar gross”. My understanding of it all, is that they are negotiating the co-financing split and the producer credit, haven’t seen Anything really on the 5% part increasing.

    EDIT: just saw an updated article saying that Disney actually does only get 5% of the whole revenue. completely understandable why they wanted to adjust the deal.

    So apparently Sony has come out and said that the whole issue isn’t a money related issue, but rather that Feige won’t be working with the franchise going forward.

    Either it was a smartly shifted narrative on their part to take the heat away from it being money related, or they genuinely don’t want to work with anyone other than Feige

    Sony pays for the production and distribution of the Spiderman films, but Marvel have creative control of the films and were allowed to put the character in their films. They also received 5% of the box office. Not very much but 50% would have been madness
