It was actually the World Security Council that was going to nuke New York. So it was the secret, shadowy world government.

Disney are making a final push to make Endgame the highest grossing film of all time. They're doing this by rereleasing Endgame in selected theatres with a deleted scene after the credits. Considering they're 30 million dollars off, they might just do it.

That is a kind of marketing genius, but they could take this a lot further.

They ought to have, say, three different “deleted” scenes, and show just one of them after the credits of each screening so you need multiple viewings to see them all.

And one of them should be rare.

Haha, I can see someone trying that. But the truth is that Endgame is nearing the end of its cinematic run and Disney are looking to start pushing Toy Story 4 now. It certainly would have been a feather in Disney's cap if they could have made it the highest grossing film in history, but they'll have to settle with it being the most successful film they've ever done instead.

Something always bugged me about the end of Ragnarok and how the Asgardians fare at the beginning of Endgame.

Disney and Sony have failed to reach an agreement, so guess who is no longer going to be in the MCU. I'll give you a clue, his name rhymes with Hider-nan.

Instead Sony are going to go for a 3rd reboot...

This is going to be very awkward for the MCU because Spider-Man: Far From Home explicitly set Spider-Man up as the new Earth-based primary character of the MCU.

Either way, if Tom doesn't keep the role of YFNS-M then it'll be a bloody shame.

He's not been the most *true to actual comic* realisation of the character, but he has certainly been the most likeable/realistic 'kid thrown into a world of superherodom'.

Well with Spider-man still up in the air, might as well pass on some news from the Disney expo.

- There's going to be a She-Hulk series on Disney+, along with Ms. Marvel and Moonknight getting their own series.
- John Walker, aka USAgent will be in the Falcon and Winter Soldier series, played by Wyatt Russell.
- The "What If" series will have 23 episodes, one episode per film in the MCU.
- The episode for Captain America: the First Avenger is likely to be "What If...Peggy Carter became Captain Britain?", after two images were shown, one of Peggy in the Vita Ray pod and another of her charging ahead with a shield that had the Union Jack on it.

I know Kamala Khan is going to appear, either in an animated form or in a live-action show. However, I really, really want it to be a Miss Marvel/Squirrel Girl team-up.

True story: a few months ago I picked up the first couple volumes of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and no sooner do I say "OMFG this is the BEST THING EVER" than I discover Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, falsifying my previous statement.

Yeah, they could have had a female character upstage the males. The fans would have stopped overlooking the film’s flaws real quick.

The thing to remember is that the Stark-Pym time-travel system seems to have the assumption that all connected decision paths in any given universe are connected on a quantum level. So, using the system, you're not only going to certain time and space coordinates but also choosing between connected time-lines too.

(click to show/hide)

This 'connected multiverse' concept seems to be key to several aspects of MCU Phase 4. So long as the time-lines have a common origin point (probably by way of the use of the Stark-Pym system), you can travel 'sideways' between them. Basically a fifth direction of motion that is only accessible via the Quantum Realm.

You know what's worrying?

These writers are paid so much money it's criminal...

But are we meant to believe that they wrote Infinity War and Endgame at different times?
And if so... HOW could they be ALLOWED to write themselves into a bloody corner?

Sony and Disney have reached a deal to allow Tom Holland to play Spider-man for at least two additional films. So that's going to cover the third Homecoming film and a future Marvel Studios film. My guess will be it's going to be an ensemble film.

FWIW, the MCU Spider-Man is young enough that the ensemble film could be the rumoured Young Avengers.
