Speak for yourself. I was enjoying the teaser up to about half-way and then I was suddenly reminded of One More Day, the disastrous arc when Marvel basically soft rebooted Spider-Man, taking away everything good in his life (because "no-one relates to a happily-married Spider-Man with a family) that only made the title worse. Another universe's Doc Ock turning up at the end just confirmed to me that this is Marvel desperately throwing whatever they've got in the bottom of the vegetable crisper at the wall, hoping that something sticks.

I know that interdimensional hijinx is the MCU's idea of what can keep the franchise going after the story ended in Endgame. However, it just leaves me cold right now.

There is a world of difference between saying "MCU is in trouble and Marvel know it" and "... it leaves me cold, personally." Just saying.

P.S. It feels weird to be defending Marvel in a way. So much of what they do leaves me cold.

And this is why. So obsessed with intertextual payoff, for someone like me who hasn't been along for the ride the whole time, there's very little good story left over.
