Agreed. If the previews are all massive superhero battle and you go in thinking this should be a thoughtful character study, the problem isn't the movie, it's you. That Black Panther turned out to be a total badass was just icing.

That's probably true, and I really want it to be true - but I got to give credit to Hodor for expressing the same theory earlier and more succinctly.

Disagree. The hodor manifesto is chock full of dated gender tropes and tired exposition. Who hodor for whom again? White guys.

Groot expresses a hope for the future, an aspiration to be groot we all hope to be.

I really haven't felt the love for Guardians Of The Galaxy –– it just hasn't grabbed me for whatever reason -- but I am ALL IN for Baby Groot.

A big part of the fun of GotG is the music which you are much too young to be nostalgic over. To the extent that YouTube can be relied on to provide accurate sociological measurements, all vagina'd people are ALL IN for Baby Groot. [dolphin voice]HE'S SO CUTE![/dv]

Not MCU per se, but I think Noah Hawley might be doing something really interesting with Legion.

It uh actually looks like it bears some plot elements in common with Arrow, but hopefully with less teen soap melodrama and more sweet martial arts choreography.

Next, you're going to say Hawkeye's weapons resemble Green Arrow's. :)

Probably won't flash back to him fighting broccoli-people from another dimension, though.

Somebody went to a lot of trouble to make me not want to watch their movie.

[Thor video]
Isn't there some way we can keep Loki and throw Thor into the sun, or just some pit or something where he's never seen or heard from again?

So you would refrain from seeing a movie based on a clip that's probably not in the movie?

Probably. The clip is boring, looks retarded, and is wrapped an Abramsesque FU "mystery box".
