Isn't MNF still a ratings monster? Plus ESPN is owned by Disney, so there's corporate synergy as well.

This is a weird choice on the surface given Marvel Studios’ previous lack of interest in what have traditionally been street-level characters in the comics, but I guess it might make sense if they want to push it as another “prestige” superhero franchise a la Black Panther, as the article suggests.

I've seen shit you people wouldn't believe. Cop cars on fire off the shoulder of I-94. I watched search lights glitter in the dark near the Ambassador Bridge. All those moments will be lost in time, like piss in the drain. Time to retch.

I'll be stoked if they go full Shaw Bros but it seems martial arts as a genre lends itself to personal stories(low stakes by Marvel's standards) more than super heroics. It's gonna be a tough sell that Kung Fu is the only answer to whatever threat the plot sets up unless it involves some kind of undercover triad angle or it's.... wait for it....

....kumite!

tbh I have a feeling that they’ll play up the mystical elements with not-Fu Manchu and that this will be something of an ersatz Iron Fist movie

Which is cool by me (Wuxia forever!) but if it's magical stuff why wouldn't Doctor Strange lock it down? I know the comics just conveniently ignore this sort of conundrum and we've all been forced to accept it but the movies are a different game.

I guess I really don't care, I just want to see a cocky yet charming Bruce Lee type trounce a skyscraper's worth of goons without getting touched.

It's corporate synergy and it's a "for the wives" thing. They did a similar thing with the new trailer for Aladdin which is generally not considered a 'male demographic' movie.

Which is a hilarious concept to any male in his early 30s unless he's desperately trying to distance himself from his childhood in some misguided attempt to be taken seriously as a macho toughguy.

I mean I get it, and I was pretty far from butch as a kid but I definitely didn't think of Aladdin as for girls solely because it was a Disney property/musical.
That said, I don't think I've seen any of the live action remakes they've been doing so I guess I am no longer the demo.

The opening number in Aladdin is the realest poo poo there is.

That's legit. Also the moral of the story is you can't ethically go from poor to rich without literal magic in any society with a class system.

Aladdin is legit. I mean, barring the 90s family friendly racism. My biggest gripe with the remakes is that Desus and Mero should have been Timon and Pumba 🤷🏾‍♀️

She's an X-wing without a Luke.

I guess they're not going to use either her origonal or updated origin, looks like she somehow gets kidnapped by the Kree and turned into one on purpose rather than it being an accident or (spoilers for The Life of Captain Marvel) Her mom is actually a Kree

I'm also thinking there will only be one Captain Marvel, and Jude Law is Yon-Rogg. It's also a bit pie in the sky to hope Noh-varr appears in this movie in some form.

I think they had too many olds very upset that someone wasn't showing them the RESPECT they deserve by doing nothing more than living too loving long. So they decided to show the rest of it that it wasn't really someone hitting them for being so loving done with their poo poo but really it was an alien battle on the subway like every normal day.

I know the Raid guys are hot right now and they do good work (see Civil War) but they tend towards the brutal realism style that's popular these days but I want to see some Yuen Woo-Pingesq flair.

I want to be able to see Shang-Chi switch between mantis and crane, I know Jeet Kune Do kinda put the old styles to rest but mastering all forms of martial arts is kinda his thing and the best way to show it in my opinion is to differentiate him from every other Blood Punch McMMA guy in superhero movies and give him a fluid graceful approach.

The way I read that trailer is that it was an accident, the Kree just told her they made her a Kree to make her indebted and fight for them in the war because they recognized how powerful she could be. But maybe I'm extrapolating a lot, I don't see why you keep showing that post-airplane crash explosion thing if that isn't what gave her powers.

A detail there is she has blue blood coming out of her nose in that scene, so its possible that's after she was turned into a kree (but before she was brainedwashed?). Or they could just have hosed up her memory making her think that the crash was when she was Kree, but things like having a USAF flight suit make the memory weird to her. The trailer implies heavily that while on Hala she's dreaming about her Human life. Its not worth speculating at this point, but when I mean accident, i mean specifically the accident that created her in the comics with the psychomagnetron blowing up and part of Mar-vell being absorbed into Carol. A different accident is totally possible.
