    This is the kind of taskmaster I wanna see in the movie (warning: huge) http://images.flyingstove.com/galleries/munkusmegamayhem/badass.jpg
    I doubt I will get to see that kind of taskmaster.

    List of good MCU villains:

    Killmonger
    About 1/2 of Loki's stuff

    That is all. Most MCU movies seem upset to have to take a break from the quipping to introduce an antagonist.

    I enjoyed Klaw or whatever his name was.

    Black Panther had two of the best bad guys and killed both of them. Shame.

    It's a mask, and that costume had holographic imaging built in so he could change his face to mimic someone.

    Klaw was cool, but was really a henchman/2nd fiddle in all his appearances. There are also quite a few more good performances, like Keaton's Vulture, but the movies are mostly uninterested in what the bad guys are up to.

    I'm always astounded when people call out Zemo as a good villain when he probably couldn't qualify for a SAG card with the role.

    Wouldn't pirates just wear regular boots. Maybe sailor boots I suppose. Or were there special outfitters catering for the outlaws of the seas.

    I have a longstanding history of hating them!

    They only exist so artists could break up the silhouette on a character's legs and are never appropriate for any costume they are on except, maybe, Corsair

    History will vindicate me

    They are specifically a type of boot with a huge impractical lip that was used for pirates in stage plays and early adventure movies

    Its like the YARRR pirate accent in that it isn't really something that existed outside of entertainment in any huge capacity

    The best Black Widow movie is two movies, one pre-Avengers that's aping Mission Impossible and one post-Winter Soldier that's aping Jason Bourne.

    Anyway it's hilarious how much that trailer highlights ScarJo's refusal to ever do an accent

    She did a little of one in Jojo Rabbit.

    It's an upgrade for the character, but a downgrade for the audience

    Seems awfully soon for a Red Sparrow remake

    I watched Red Sparrow.

    I don't want to say it was bad, but it sure wasn't good. It was just kind of there. La Femme Nikita is miles better than it, and so is Atomic Blonde. Hell, so is The Long Kiss Goodnight. I'll almost certainly never rewatch Red Sparrow.

    That Black Widow trailer looks worse, and by a sizeable margin.

    I dunno, it doesn't have Jennifer Lawrence doing a terrible accent for the entire film, as the lead character, so its got that going for it

    I think Endgame broke me and I just don't really care about more MCU movies, and this is coming from me, the person who genuinely liked the rest of the MCU. I mean I'll still probably go see it mainly for David Harbour and Taskmaster?

    I definitely think this will be the first Marvel film in a while to pull under $500 million. Not that that is a bad figure, but I think that fatigue is setting in especially since it's a prequel. But I'm not liking the direction of the MCU Spider-Man either and it made a billion so what do I know?

    I'm at the point now where any time a fight happens in a MCU movie it's a pretty good time to hit the bathroom or get a drink or something

    Even in movies I otherwise enjoy, the action is almost universally on a scale from boring to actively terrible

    I fucking loved Endgame.

    But it felt like an ending.

    I really don't care too much about further movies except for Thor but that's because if Taika Waititi more than anything else

    Can someone explain Baby Yoda to me. I keep seeing it mentioned. Is it an actual thing from one of the SW features or is it just internet goofery.

    It’s from The Mandalorian, the new Star Wars show

    The show’s protagonist is a bounty hunter who gets attached to and kind of adopts(?) one of his bounties: a kid of Yoda’s species

    I thin she actually learned that accent from Scarletts previous attempts at a Russian accent as Black Widow, I'm glad Scarlett's dropped it.

    It's also not actually Yoda but a member of his species, which we have no name or other info about so Baby Yoda is the word

    Kinda feel the same, myself.

    But David Harbour and Florence Pugh are doing a lot to pull me back in. If I see this movie in the theaters it'll be to see them, mostly.

    Baby Yoda is the internet's new-Mandalorian-episode notifier.
