    Agreed. Disney could "rest on its laurels" and rely on just making its existing content available on launch, and still expect to have a huge subscription base. But with all the new content they are...

    Generally, I *am* excited about Phase 4. It's a good mix of bringing back what were (largely) supporting characters as leads, of introducing new characters, and of a good movie/miniseries balance to...

    I agree with the sentiment, Kris, but for slightly different reasons.

    Diversity and representation are important, but I always feel manipulated when they are touted as a major selling point or a...

    It's for all the reasons people are describing here.

    Narratively, it doesn't make sense. Thor is not a persona like Iron Man. Thor is Thor. He isn't a human with superpowers, he's a different...

    Personally, I'm not that excited about the X-Men entering the MCU. The X-Men exist in their own, very specific world, and we haven't seen that world in the MCU to date. So I fear either some...

    Thanks for posting, Mae.

    Okay, I admit it. I was a bit skeptical about this series, but the trailer is winning me over. And as for the blatant fan service ... I'm kind of okay with it. At least...

    Nice. Thanks for posting, Mae.

    This is the way to get fans excited about Phase 4. Lots of movie announcements, firm release dates, new characters, returning favourites.

    Congrats on the Faerie Tale, Lurker. That looks to be a very nice edition indeed.

    At some point Feist was planning a sequel, but Riftwar took over everything, and he seems to be doing other things...

    A 1000 pager? Hmm.
