    I looked at the rankings and I thought someone is remaking Kolchak: The Night Stalker. Just watched the original made for TV movie again the other night ....haven't seen in a long time.

And preferably in a blaze of glory!

    I do think there's a decent chance that Loki, Gamora, Hawkeye, Winter Soldier, War Machine, Ant-Man and Nick Fury will each bite the bullet soon. I say this because Feige stated that the next Avengers team will be EXTREMELY different than the previous ones.
    I wonder if it will involve the team during the Under Siege arc. Roger Stern & John Buscema killed it on that. Then you would get The Wasp as the leader, Namor, Hercules, Dane Whitman aka Black Knight, Monica as Photon instead of Captain Marvel and maybe the return Captain America or even introduce Bucky Cap. That would bring in Baron Zemo, Moonstone, Crusher Creel, Titania and other assorted members of Zemo's gang.

    Yeah, that would be an interesting new line-up! Hercules was always a favorite of mine. Probably take a while for them each to be introduced though. I think Namor is tricky because of his rights situation with Universal Studios. I like taking C-list characters and making them A-listers. That's something DC should try to emulate more.

    I think Kevin Feige made an announcement maybe a year or so ago that Marvel got back Namor's rights but I couldn't find anything. I don't know how Universal gets anything out it by keeping the rights. Or maybe their asking for too much and Marvel/Disney doesn't want to meet their price. They can wait them out because unless Universal wants to do a big launch of their own, they are gaining nothing from the IP

    I heard about that too! But that's never been clarified to me. I feel Universal is doing to Namor what it did previously to the Hulk. By not letting Disney use them the way they want to, prevents some GREAT stories from being told on screen.

The Avengers weren't about making social change. So I gravitated towards them. Like Wanda and Pietro in the Avengers barely mentioned mutant struggles in their stories and I was fine with that. I didn't know that would change MASSIVELY fifteen years ago or so. I was also surprised to learn so many classic Avengers that I knew and loved back in the day are now no longer actually Avengers! And many of them were C-list characters like Wanda and Vision and would have a tough time surviving outside of that group in the comic books. I'm glad the MCU is bringing back those classic line-ups (for the most part).
    I'm the opposite; I haven't read X-Men comics in decades. Every once in a while I check in, but they're not my thing.
    Especially when their fandom dumps on Wanda (HoM, etc)

    But those X-men movies, the first two with Stewart as Prof X, are gold to me.

    I guess what bums me out is that we'll never get flashbacks into how Wanda and Vision got together in earlier MCU movies. I was also hoping we could have seen some scenes with Billy and Tommy going to school and Wanda and Vision being harried parents. Now it's all too late for that.

    Yeah, I liked the X-Men, but not as much as the Avengers. Because their origin stories were kind of unique, as opposed to the mutants. But in the 90s, the X-books were the hottest things in comics, so I thought I was in the minority. I think I saw the first X-Men movie in a theater (and I almost never go to the movies). It was fine, but I can't remember much from it. I've been a fan of Stewart since the TNG days. I actually think the MCU is a little bit like the Star Trek world of the 90s and early 2000s I grew up in. Optimistic and hopeful. WandaVision is kinda diverging from that, and that makes me sad. But I understand what it's trying to do. I think mental illness should be discussed in the open, even in superhero movies and shows. I didn't use to feel that way, but I've come around to accepting that now. Especially after hearing posters on these forums talking about their own mental health struggles.

    I'd be FLABBERGASTED if they got to that in the last two episodes. I mean totally shocked. After discussing mental health with GenericUsername a couple nights ago, I had a thought. Wouldn't it be interesting if Wanda received some sort of therapy from a psychiatrist? He/she could prescribe the medication Wanda was taking in Episode 7. If WandaVision is really doing a deep dive into mental illness, that would be such a powerful statement that superheroes need to seek out help sometimes, so "normal" folks can too. But I guarantee NONE of the stuff I mentioned in my last two posts are gonna happen. There's just no time for it. If ANY of the ideas I just mentioned are actually realized in the next couple of episodes, I give the ENTIRE CBR forums the right to call me a DICK. That's how confident I am that none of it will occur.

    Lightbulb

    Their is Still Speculation on Who Dottie Could be in all of this and while their has been like most things amazing in the show Theories and Speculations, the one below in the Video from The Big Picture is honestly with good evidence espically after Episode 7 and callbacks to episode 2 is honestly one of the best I have seen so far and be a Big Left of Field turn if true.

    Got to the Part of the Video starting at 18:55 and Watch to the end.




    If this is the Case Dottie Jones Being;

    spoilers:
    ARCANNA of The Squadron Supreme!?
    end of spoilers

    Now this theory might have already been know or dicussed here already but this is the 1st time I have heard of the pieces to put it all together and if this turns out to be the case those Implications can be massive and exciting!

    spoilers:
    Could also go with the Tease of Why Wanda looked so much like Zatanna in Episode 2 as well.
    end of spoilers

    We have to wait and see, but just wondering others views of this Theory?

    spoilers:
    I hope they end up fusing the Vision Wanda created with the body so that he comes back to life. Also, how would Hayward know that Wanda has the power to bring Vision back? There must be more to him if he knew that.

    What do you mean how? He's literally seen Vision alive.
