    I dont think marvel has ever said it was too hard

    That said there has been shitton of pushback about a certain tv refference.

    People at Marvel actually have cited that it's partially a matter of production schedules, since films are being made over the course of a couple years and TV episodes in less than a year, if they write a TV character or status quo into a movie script, the show may have moved on from that status quo or that character might have developed differently by the time the movie actually comes out

    I'm sure they could make it work if they wanted to, but I don't think they want to

    They have also cited the fact that the movies already have enough characters

    And then there's the fact that at this point Marvel Studios and the rest of Marvel are essentially different companies, and I don't think Feige and Perlmutter get along. And I wouldn't be surprised if the film people have an issue with the perceived quality of the TV stuff and might not want to be associated with it if they even could

    I don't think Marvel has an equivalent to Lucasfilm Story Group, or at least not one that consults with and maps out storylines for both TV and film. That's the real thing that's tying all the new Star Wars canon together

    There's also a split between Marvel film and tv. Unlike Star Wars, the Marvel stuff is kept separate. With Perlmutter being essentially kicked out of the film side of things and only having control over the tv stuff. Inhumans was his pet project. He was pushing for it to be a film, and was the only person who wanted a Inhumans film. When he no longer had the power to make the film hapen he made the tv show, and we all know how that turned out.

    I know Disney really really wants Star Wars to be their next MCU, and it should work given how the EU kept going forever.

    But I think the MCU has disparate franchises that it doesn't feel like you're in the exact same setting with each film, whereas Star Wars really struggles to escape that. Would a gangster flick about, I dunno, Lady Valarian be different enough while still being Star Wars?

    The Star Wars universe as we have it now was kind of built from the ground up to allow stuff like the tv shows and comics and the like to have some impact on the movies, and there's way less Star Wars stuff out there, at least on screen, than there is MCU stuff. It would be pretty difficult to coordinate like five movie productions with five tv shows, especially since Agents of SHIELD is the one series that interacts with the wider MCU at all, and I would wager a good 99% of the people who watch MCU movies have no idea it even exists.

    Star Wars has a whole galaxy to explore. The MCU is much more constrained.

    In terms of size sure

    But literally every Star Wars movie of the 10 released so far have had some form of Rebels vs. Empire and/or Sith story to it

    Even Solo has
    Voss selling the weapons to the Empire vs. Han aiding the fledgling Rebellion

    If they really want to make Star Wars into a franchise capable of sustaining a steady output of films, they need to actually explore different settings and stories instead of relying on the same structures and plot elements in varyingly different settings. MCU movies can have similar structures, but embrace different corners of that universe and themes enough that they can still be distinct

    Yeah Star Wars has the potential to tell a variety of stories beyond what the MCU is capable of but it has yet to take advantage of that so far. That's true of all of Star Wars including both EU's. Jedi, Sith, droids, Empire, Republic, scum ect.

    The reason that I enjoyed the beginning of Solo so much more than the rest of it is because it begins in a unique world and hints the ability to tell new stories.

    By the end of it though we are right where Star Wars always lands. Star Wars needs people to invent completely new things unrelated to what already exists.

    I got the Lando version of the Falcon model kit from Bandai and I'm excited to start building it this weekend, and this led to me remarking to two friends that I... really don't like the configuration of the Falcon that we know from all the other movies

    This was treated as sacrilege but it's an ugly, goofy, unwieldy ship and I've never had any love for its aesthetics, despite appreciating its role in the films

    Lando's has the pod docked on the nose which helps to elongate the silhouette into something that actually looks like a spaceship, and it has a better paint job (by which I mean any paint at all) and the clean look is just so much better

    There, that's my hot take, she was better off with Lando

    has anyone ever wondered why there was a map to luke skywalker as the mcguffin in 7, only to be entirely dismissed in 8? why would luke/r2 have it if he doesn't want to be found?

    i find the lack of consistent direction in the new movies to be a little cumbersome.

  • sarukunsarukun RIESLING OCEANRegistered User regular
    I mean

    I really don’t care about the map.

    It’s a neat McGuffin that works fine in the first movie and I really don’t need them to go down a rabbit hole giving me the backstory of the map.

    It’s the Death Star plans and it pays off in its own movie and never needs to be mentioned again.

    The map was to the first jedi temple, which is where Luke had gone - he didn't make the map just probably followed different leads that r2/lor von tekka picked up later.

    The movies imply strongly that Luke originally left to figure things out regarding the future with the Jedi and only arrived at his “end the jedi” stance because he found the answers, he was looking for, wanting.

    Saw Solo yesterday. It was a cute, fun movie.

    I loved all the costumes in it though. Pretty much every time they had a chance to put a character in a cool helmet, they went for it, which just felt very Star Wars to me.

    He did not read them to completion location of that he did not read them to completion but started them and did not find the enlightenment he searched for. In fact he probably saw the opposite. All the flaws in the jedi idology written down in one place was probably to much to stand.

    Didn't he? It seems like the kind of thing you'd do when most of your day consists of silently brooding in a hut.
    Yoda says that they weren't exactly page turners, but I can't imagine any character making a cross galaxy road trip to find the ancient lore, getting there and deciding that the ancient jedi text books he found were too boring to read and it'd be better to spend his time spear fishing and hut brooding.

    Luke says that he didn't read the books and he was stuck on that island alone for months or even years and would absolutely have read those books
