    After the rumor of Spiderman: Phone Home, anything else seems lackluster.

    No Way Home is the official under title for the next SpiderMan movie. Courtesy of Marvel themselves announcing it today.

    And I’m just saying... you’re trying to nitpick things WAY TOO MUCH. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter why one was right-handed versus left-handed. Yeah, it’s fun to nitpick certain things in WandaVision to see just where they’re going with that show; I’m sure we’ll do that next month when TFaWS debuts. But... this is a non-thing, bub.

    Juat say8ng, that Thanos is right handed. Him having the gauntlet on his left hand is equivalent to a Baseball glove. Put it on you non-dominant hand.

    Perhaps because he was right-handed and that was what felt natural for him, whereas Thanos is left-handed so that’s why he had Eitri make it that way for him. Or maybe because he figured if they were trying to undo what Thanos did originally, they figured it needed to be “balanced” in all ways, hence going with the right hand versus the left. It really a trivial matter, and this is legit the first time I’ve ever heard someone ask about it.

    Why in Endgame, did Tony make the new Infinity Gauntlet for the right hand?

    In re-watching Endgame, why does Tony's Iron Man helmet come off as it's own entity? The entire suit is made from nanotech, as seen when he outs it on in the beginning of IW, and then during his fight with Thanos, and during that fight his tech starts to deplete when he is firing at Thanos and defending himself. And when Thanos rips off the helmet, and when Tony loses Peter, he is not wearing the helmet, so why does the nanotech not recoil back into the hub in the middle of his chest?

    I admittedly do not read Marvel, but i keep reading on the web that in the comics Shuri at one point takes the throne in Wakanda after the death of T'Chaka. So why not address that? Have Shuri take the throne and become the new Black Panther as well? It would also be another Woman, and a Black woman in a great role and role model for the young ladies.

    Seems like alot of trouble to go through just to have someone else take up the mantle of Black Panther. Of all the Avengers, the very idea of what Black Panther is and what he stands for makes him the most replaceable.

    Maybe it’s too soon, but with the death of Chadwick Boseman, I’ve been curious how Disney/Marvel are going to react as far as possibly having to replace him. And the best idea I’ve come up with is to write a few (extra) scenes into Doctor Strange 2. They are apparently going to explore the multiverse with that movie, so maybe they should go all in with the concept and get really crazy with it. Show a scene where T’Challa has been pronounced dead for whatever reason off screen. Have Doctor Strange say something like “No... we need the Black Panther”, so Strange travels to a different universe to seek out another version of Black Panther. Only in the universe he goes to, he finds that T’Challa is already dead there, as well, and Erik Killmonger (a good guy in this universe... not the bitter, pissed off one we saw in the first Black Panther) has taken up the mantle. This would be a good way of getting Michael B. Jordan back into the MCU, and I think it would be a cool way to replace Chadwick Boseman instead of just pulling a Rhodey and replacing him with no mention made whatsoever.

    I just read this: In Logan it is mentioned that the mutant cure is now present in everyday corn syrup, implying that Logan's healing factor is depleting now of all times because he has unknowingly consumed the cure through food products. It's also why he is aging significantly faster than he ever has.

    Hmmm..i never noticed that line in the movie.

    Your first thought- good job, it took you over a year to realize what pretty much everyone else came to the conclusion of within days of the movie coming out.

    Your second thought- 1) Days of Future Past erased the events of Wolverine: Origins. In the new continuity, Logan didn’t get his adamantium until the 80s as evidenced by X-Men: Apocalypse. 2) Logan was a couple hundred years old when his body started giving out on him. That probably had more to do with it than just the adamantium. (Granted, the adamantium probably exacerbated it a great deal.) Also... comic book science. It’s never consistent, so take that for what it’s worth.


    edit...

    After giving this a bit more thought in regards to DoFP changing events, it could be argued that because of that X-Men shouldn’t have taken place then, thus the call back to the Statue of Liberty shouldn’t be a thing or make any sense when Xavier mentions it. However, there’s a theory when it comes to time travel and changing the past and the whole butterfly effect thing afterwards that states certain moments in time are so paramount that they are destined to always happen no matter what. Thirty different little things could’ve changed after DoFP (for example- Logan getting his adamantium several years later than when he originally did), but the major events are still going to happen no matter what.

    So I have been thinking after re-watching Infinity War and Endgame. Let's sum up. Thanos collects all 6 stones, snaps, and half of all life disappears. FIVE YEARS LATER. Avengers collect all 6 stones, Tony snaps, the half that Thanos snapped away instantly return.

    This got me thinking a lot. There was 5 YEARS between snaps. 5 years. Not 5 minutes, days or weeks. Years. Why is this important? Because Thanos while insane also had a point. With half of all life gone for 5 years, where is all of the food and supplies going to come from when the half that Tony snapped back going to come from? Think about it. We have a pandemic going on and from March to June, there was almost no supplies left in the markets and stores with the existing population. Yes people were stockpiling but in the MCU half of all life was gone for 5 years. Then we instantly get around 4 billion people back and where will be the food and supplies to take care of them? Huge rush to the stores, and all of the food is gone, let alone toilet paper. The food producers will now have twice as much livestock to care for and feed. Where are they getting the food for them? People will starve more than prior to Thanos snapping.

    Bringing back the population is actually more harmful than losing them, if you think about it.


    Second thought. After re-watching Logan, the time line is confusing. What time line is it? The original X-Men, because Charles states that the Statue of Liberty was a long time ago. 29 years in the movies timeline, as it is set in 2029, and X-Mex took place in 2000. But that is not my concern. If we take the timesline from the original X-Men, Logan got his adamantium in 1977 at Three Mile Island, and every day his healing ability slowly wears down due to it constantly fighting the adamantium. That is the point of Logan. So why is this important? For two reasons.

    1. It took basically 52 years for Logan's healing ability to lose the fight with adamantium, so Laura will have no where near the lifespan of Logan, as she had her adamantium implanted within the last year or so, so she has roughly 50 years left, and the clock is ticking.

    2. Laura's body will also be in a different battle within itself and be in constant pain because of the adamantium. When Logan had the adamantium grafted to him, he was already a fully grown adult. Laura on the other hand was around 10-11 years old when her adamantium was grafted, as shown in the movie. So as she grows her bones will constantly fight against an indestructible metal. Her body will never grow properly and she probably will become physically twisted and deformed. The adamantium will restrict her growth and warp the bone growth, let alone skull.

    So if Laura can live the 50ish years, she will never be healthy, happy, and appear normal.
