    Yeah i need to watch Suicide Squad and this new tv show...

    Same. I'm behind. I missed the initial release of Suicide Squad and that's the only reason I haven't started Peacemaker yet.

    Finally got around to watching Eternals, enjoyed it a lot. Thought it was much better than some of the reviews it was getting at launch.

    Is Knull more closely associated with the symbiotes than with Gorr and Silver Surfer? Trying to work out if he’s owned by Sony or Marvel.

    Marvel own the rights to Knull is my understanding due to Marvel creating him after after Sony got Spidermans rights.

    But AFAIK anybody associated with Spider-Man or his supporting characters enters Sony ownership regardless of when they debut. Knull didn’t debut in a Spider-Man/Venom comic, but he became increasingly more important to them, like how Marvel’s co-ownership of Fisk is based on him gradually becoming more important to Daredevil.

    I mean sure, but my understanding (and tbf it's limited on the character) is that Knull is a Thanos level character in the sense that he's a villian to most of the MCU, not just Venom/Spiderman.

    Idk the whole rights thing is a mess.

    Are there any big bad villains that are not tied to the X-Men or F4 storyline?

    Norman Osborn?

    I was referring to Thanos level in quality. I know Kang is being set-up to arch a few movies.

    Nope.

    Doom, Magneto, Galactus........even Kang technically debuted in FF and his origin has always been alluded to be a descendant of Richards and/or Doom.

    Thry even went so far as to give him the name of Reed Richard's father.

    The Beyonder isn’t really tied to the F4.

    Guys, I think Joss Whedon is a sociopath:
    https://www.vulture.com/article/joss-whedon-allegations.html
    On our second day of interviews, I asked Whedon about his affairs on the set of Buffy. He looked worse than he had the day before. His eyes were faintly bloodshot. He hadn’t slept well. “I feel ❤️❤️❤️❤️ terrible about them,” he said. When I pressed him on why, he noted “it messes up the power dynamic,” but he didn’t expand on that thought. Instead, he quickly added that he had felt he “had” to sleep with them, that he was “powerless” to resist. I laughed. “I’m not actually joking,” he said. He had been surrounded by beautiful young women — the sort of women who had ignored him when he was younger — and he feared if he didn’t have sex with them, he would “always regret it.”

    I spoke with three women who dated Whedon after his marriage ended. In their stories, he was not the hero they had read about in the press, the one who wanted to see women in control; he was more like the cold-blooded men he depicted in his work. Sarah, a pseudonym, met Whedon when he was promoting Age of Ultron. She was a 22-year-old freelance writer who interviewed him for a pop-culture website; after the piece published, they began a sexual relationship. “He led me to believe he was single,” she said. One night she went out for drinks alone with a friend Whedon wanted her to meet. After the friend mentioned she had a long-term boyfriend, Sarah asked what his name was. “I’m dating Joss Whedon,” the woman replied. Sarah went into the bathroom and threw up. “What the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ is he playing at?” she remembers thinking.


    Amazing how Ray Fisher won in the end.

    Liked everything except the suit forming on him like a symbiote.

    it's a crying emoticon. Hard to tell with the sunglasses...but T.O. was crying in the interview that that emoticon comes from.

    Don't really know much about him but this show will be overshadowed by his untimely death

    Eh, maybe I just associate his posts with humour too much.

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️ me, Cloak and Dagger is absolutely horrifying. D’Spayre is arguably more deplorable than Kilgrave.

    I don’t suppose we have any Star Wars fans in here who are watching The Book of Boba Fett? I couldn’t see another thread for it.

    Is it out yet? I did like the Mandalorian and his character was good in that series.

    Is that a different series? I thought that's the spin off. Course I haven't seen it but I want to but not yet though.

    Without spoiling anything, it’s meant to be a separate spin-off to the Mandalorian that follows Boba Fett on Tatooine.

    But the writers have made some…interesting choices. It’s 100% worth a watch though.

    Honestly when I saw last week’s episode I thought Disney had accidentally uploaded the first episode of the new Mando series.

    I mean it was a great episode, so was today’s, however they have absolutely nothing to do with Boba Fett.

    The Mandalorian’s, the Naboo starfighter, Ashoka, Luke, R2D2, Grogu. All good stuff that have absolutely nothing to do with Boba Fett and that’s an issue in a show that’s meant to focus on him :joy:
