    Thor 2 is hands down the worst film.

    I literally canít remember anything about it. I know Iíve seen it because it was before I stopped going to see them all at the cinema but I genuinely couldnít even tell you who the villain is. Unless its just Loki again.

    He's still there but it's Malekith, the dark elf (Christopher Eccleston).

    That would be a huge retcon.

    That was a better episode.

    Acting is still atrocious, but as a Marvel episode that worked.

    No idea why Falcon hasn't been using his suit if he had it with him the whole time though, and still lots of plot holes, but more of that and I'll be happier.

    Zemo is turning out to be the best character in this nonsense. But oh noes the retcon.

    He's certainly the most interesting.

    It's weird though as although I think the actor is likely doing a great job of playing the character he's being asked to.... I'm just not getting him. Not as Zemo. I didn't in the film either.

    He's quite funny and has good timing, and I like the character.... But it doesn't feel very 'Zemoey' to me. Wouldn't say he'd been retconned but I'd dig him a lot more if this was a character in a non-Marvel series.

    Thor 2 : Portal was the worst.

    I'll go through the MCU films in order once in a while and I can recall nothing of Thor 2 beyond shoes and van keys thrown into the portal, incorrect Tube stops, Darcy snogging, Ecclestone with funny ears. It's the film I'm most likely to doze off to.

    Wandavision is such a cool way to follow Endgame and see the effect the Infinity Saga has had on its participants.

    Iíve not started Falcon yet but I canít see how it could be better if the original schedule was retained and Wandavision wasnít first.

    My only mild gripe would be that Iím not sure it needed Kathryn Hahn as a wicked witch villain. Wanda and her grief and SWORDís meddling were intriguing enough already

    Just watching the first episode of Falcon now. The wingsuit stuff with GSP is such a cool Mission Impossible style way to kick things off.

    Onward to the credit score checks

    I didnít really appreciate the retcon that he had a bathroom in this episode. Goes against his established character of never seeing a toilet.

    The latest episode was vast an improvement but much like the Netflix marvel stuff, it feels like thereís too much filler even if there are fewer episodes. It could have been a fairly decent film but theyíve dragged it out over 6 hours.

    Flag smashers is a stupid name too.

    Flags are normally made of a fabric material.

    How would you 'smash' a flag?

    Does the flag have to smash itself, or could it be a Hulk Smash to a flag? I feel like this detail is needed.

    At the moment I'm confused as to whether they're able to actually smash a flag, or just hit one really hard. And if the latter, why?

    Information. We. Need. To. Know!

    I canít decide if all the West Coast related material are lore deep dives or something to be concerned about regarding a potential lack of star power.

    I guess weíll know for sure if they cast Hercules

    They are dropping subtle hints on the West Coast Avengers but so far it's more nerd references than anything else.

    Thor 2 is generally really bad but has a few good scenes. The whole portal hammer thing is quite good but the Thor/Foster relationship is badly handled and feels completely at odds with the preceding movie.

    Seeing Thor beaten up by some super generic dark elf thing was very unsatisfying, and even after educating myself in the comic lore, felt frustrating.

    Objectively I agree with this, but I enjoy watching Thor in action enough that I did enjoy it.

    This may have already been discussed but my problem with the Captain America is he looks like Harry Kane and I canít unsee it.

    Yup, he definitely did let a villain jump up in the air before backing into him and making him land on his head in the last episode. I saw it!
