I don't care who you get for Wolverine. No one can own that roll like Jackman.

Also, has anyone heard of Kraven being in the new FFH movie? Speculation that he will have a greater roll in Black Panther 2; which will lead to Boseman & Holland teaming up to fight the Sinister Six. Also heard Osbourne is in this movie.

Vulture, Shocker, Mystero & Scorpion have all been shown. With rumors of Osbourne & Kraven coming in the new one.

Im guessing part 3 is Sinister Six.
Apparently Osborn is going to be the big bad of the next phase, using the Dark Reign story line. Apparently Oscorp will be noticeable in FFH at least.

Avengers tower was bought by Oscorp. I was hoping for it becoming the Baxter building. Can't have everything I guess.

I've read similar rumors as well, along the lines of Sony had planned to use Osborn as a side character in that Silver Sable/Black Cat movie they want to do but Feige was able to talk them out of it and get him as a big bad for the MCU.

It also appears as though they will have put an emphasis on that tower in two Spider-Man movies now, selling it in the first one and in the trailer for the second movie you can see it getting major renovations. Maybe we get lucky and even get an Osborn after credits teaser of some sort?

I've actually been hoping the Fantastic Four will originate in the 60s as some popular space race era independent science team. They can go on a space mission that causes them to get sucked through some space anomaly giving them their powers but also stranding them somewhere in some other dimension. The entire first movie can be an adventure of them finding their way home but when they do get back to Earth is present day.

Do your jobs boys:



Went and saw Endgame for the second time today. I liked it as much if not more than the first time I saw it. It's just a fun movie with so many great moments.

The extra scenes were a nice tribute to Stan Lee, a lame deleted Hulk scene, and a promo for Spiderman.

It was super unfinished CGI and a really cheesy scene in general. I think it would have been placed right before the diner scene. Seemed like a good idea to leave it out of the final film to me though.

I enjoyed Far From Home. It wasn't spectacular, but it was fun and funny. Two end credit scenes.

What I didn't "get":

When the holograms were going on, was all of the damage done by those drones? I mean, Spidey was getting punched by all kinds of things. Were those fists just little drones where the fists should have been?

Also, loved JB Smoove as a chaperone. He was hilarious. I kept waiting for Larry David to make a cameo though.

Went to Spider-man: Far From Home last night. Some thoughts:

Like "Homecoming" it was pretty similar in tone. If you enjoyed that one, you'll dig this one. I'm also a sucker for Spider-man, I was going to dig this one regardless; however, a few things didn't work for me.
First off, the action sequences were fun and Tom Holland fits the awkward Peter Parker role well. He shows a little science nerd in here and makes mistakes, just how I'd expect the teenage Peter to be. I would like a Spider-man to be a little more jokey and quippy like the comics, but that's just a preference. I can't fault the casting at all.

Mysterio was great. I wouldn't put him in the upper echelon of MCU villains with Loki or Thanos, but definitely that B-tier with Vulture. Jake Gyllenhall does a quality job of mixing sympathetic superhero and menace in the movie. I was kind of in my kid glory to see that classic fishbowl head too. The villain is a good fit for Spider-man, not overpowered cosmic threats, but a little bit of a retread of disgruntled ex-employee (like Vulture). I will say that the two fights against Mysterio were amazing, and the illusion battle about midway through was one of my favorite MCU sequences. If we're going to have a fight against Mysterio I imagined it'd be like this and it delivers. It was up there with some of the wonky scenes of Dr. Strange in filming and such.

The humor was hit or miss for me and the audience. The bearded teacher had a few clunkers, but I agree with Hurl Bruce on JB Smoove. I kind of wished it didn't always have to play for as many laughs with those cast members as it did. Also like Hurl said, the whole drone stuff was a little far fetched and extreme, but whatever it was a comic book movie. The Spider-man fan in me was wondering why Uncle Ben wasn't mentioned once, but I see that Tony Stark is the new surrogate father figure here.

Overall, Marvel delivers again and they've got their success formula. A nice mix of fan service, humor, and action like usual. I don't think I can ever get tired of seeing Spider-man on the screen (and his swing with MJ was perfect too). I won't include it here, but the first end credits sizzle has me really looking forward to what's coming next. A solid B+ flick.

Wow, saw FFH last night. Better than Homecoming, and might be a top 5 MCU movie, definitely top 10.

The fight scenes with Mysterio were incredible.

Loved FFH.

Loved seeing J. Jonah again (sans hair?). He is the perfect Mass Media Moron for this age.

Loved seeing the Skrulls again. General Talos is sooo incompetent, yet effective.

I love Ben Mendelsohn.

Had the chance to see Far From Home a couple times since it came out. I would put it in my top 5 Marvel movies to date.

The whole sequence of Mysterio mindfucking Peter at the abandoned factory feels like something straight out of the comics. It was amazing and the highlight of the movie for me.

Also loved Spidey crafting a quick weapon and shield on the bridge. It looked like something that would have been right at home in the Dan Slott Spider-Man run.
