Just finished The Defenders. I must say... they wrapped up "part one" of the Netflix shows quite nicely. It was a lot of fun seeing all four tangle together. Fight scenes were great. Be sure to stay after the credits for the next series stinger.

Also, the poster designer for both Ant-Man films shared this image, both next to each other. Quite nice.

Guess they decided to not wait for the Thor release and drop it early.

I gotta say, that looks pretty damn good. Better than I had started thinking it might.

I finally caught Spider-Man: Homecoming yesterday through Redbox. Holy crap, that movie was GOOD. So funny. And mixing in the '80's high school comedy bits was brilliant. Loved the callback to Ferris Beuller's Day Off. The fence leaping gag was both on the nose and on point.

The final stinger after the credits was truly a laugh out loud moment. One of the best.

My one complaint was Donald Glover. I felt his performance was quite underwhelming. They could've written his lines far better. A dynamic actor of his comedic caliber could of been better used elsewhere, but maybe we'll see his Aaron Davis again. I'm not familiar with it if it's comics related. I am aware of his Miles Morales portrayal though, but this seems unrelated.

His portrayal is totally Miles Morales related.

I believe the Aaron davis character is the uncle to Miles Morales

There are reports going out that Disney is in talks to buy a large portion of 20th Century Fox.

Could you imagine X-Men in the MCU ?

while I wouldn't necessarily mind all of marvel's characters in one movie studio; I really hope Disney doesn't buy Fox.  the Monopoly that Disney is becoming is troubling

So I slogged through all of The Inhumans. It is the first product of the MCU I can confidently say skip it. At least for now. There's absolutely no connection  to anything else as far as I can tell. It had it's moments, but I can count them on one hand. Very, very unsatisfying.

As far films, I've yet to see Thor, but I'm looking forward to it as soon as I get time.

Dec 1st,  Sci-Fi-deathknell Friday, Agents of SHIELD returns for a 2 hour premiere.

This trailer looks pretty slick.

I felt Inhumans had its moments, but only a few. They reference within the first couple of episodes I think the humans on Earth that are going through Terrigenesis, after their appearance in SHIELD. I wonder with where SHIELD is going if there may be more of a crossover there, since inhumans are already so prominent with the show. I wouldn't be surprised if they did to be honest, it might be the only way to save the fledgling new series.
