  1. I don't think there really is an ongoing Hawkeye solo title in the sense of an open-ended series like the Avengers and the X-Men (and of course, Marvel keeps re-booting and re-numbering them all every so often), there's more like a series of limited runs. The Fraction run which kicked off Hawkeye's semi-regular/limited series runs featured both Clint and Kate. Then there was one which was only Kate I believe (with maybe a Clint cameo or minor support). I think the most recent Hawkeye limited series was called Hawkeye: Freefall and that one was about Clint. And I think there is an upcoming
  2. There is a famous meme out there where someone switched the butt of Tom Holland as Spider Man with the butt of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. Tom Holland has a better butt than she does. Brie’s butt looks like a sack of potatoes. If she is in good shape then the costume does her no favours at all. Re her opinion that her character is the most powerful: https://www.republicworld.com/amp/entertainment-news/web-series/is-captain-marvel-the-strongest-avenger-brie-larson-believes-so.html
  3. I don’t think they’ve announced anything, but it seems clear that the purpose of WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is not to be ongoing series but to bridge the gap and set up things in between movies. I’m not sure why Loki is getting a second season though. Jeremy Renner has stated before that he kept hoping they would kill off Hawkeye because he didn’t like the role. So I’m sure he’s going to retire from the MCU movies like Downey, Evans and Johansson. It seems clear that the purpose of this series is to introduce Kate Bishop and when next we see her in an MCU movie s
  4. Loved the trailer... the Christmas scenes and the soundtrack definitely give off "Die Hard" vibes. I love that this show is clearly adapted from the Fraction run (even down to the title logo) and that it brings in the humour of that particular run and the fact that Hawkeye in the comics is one of the funniest and most irreverent guys in comics. As I mentioned above, I hated the dour and serious MCU Hawkeye, so this version of him is great to see. Too bad that this show is almost certainly going to be Clint Barton's sendoff. I wish this funny version is the version we had gotten in the
  5. Yes. I wanted to know what the judges thought were the highlights and criticisms of each build. It would have been great to get more insight as to how they decided. Agreed. Maybe it's me, but I think this season seemed to have a lot less emphasis on sculpting than last season? The only weeks that seemed like a real sculpting exercise were maybe the hat, the floating brick, and the creature mashup? For some reason I feel like last season had more sculpting. I think back to the finalist bickering couple that wasn't a couple ("You just don't understand Lego!"). The task where they
  6. Yep, I know they mentioned that... but the camera did show us close-ups of some of the rooms in the "night" mode. To me, the characters and scenes looked pretty much the same as they did during the "day" mode, so if there were indeed differences, they did not explain them at all, and the judges didn't comment on them either. I think Zack and Wayne got second place because of the goodwill carrying over from the strength of their resume of builds, which overall, was a lot better than the Geek Twins.
  7. I am happy with the result. I was rooting for the Viking Brothers and I thought their build was far and away the best of the three. The landscape was great with lots of intricate details, and the wood watcher was well crafted. The water and the night effects (with motion lights) was especially beautiful. I liked the Geek Twins concept a lot and I thought it was very creative, even if I don't think it was executed that well. The day half was represented by a spinning white city, and the night half was represented by a cave with enormous bats? I was surprised by how much the less geeky

    Yes, I think that is the crux of the issue. Naomi can't handle criticism. She acts like the media are so intrusive and that this is suddenly a new issue for her. But she has won four grand slam tournaments, and it's not like dealing with the media is something she has never done before. She claims that she has felt this way for a long time, but there was never any discussion about "mental health" until the French Open and she just couldn't handle being asked about why she lost. As you mentioned, dealing with media is part of the sport, and it's not just tennis, it's literally every sin

    Yes... that is what I find odd, she says she gets very anxious when facing the media and that it's not good for her mental health. Yet she has absolutely no issue with the spotlight of being a co-chair of the Met Gala, amping up her wardrobe, hair and makeup to an 11 like many others there, hanging out with famous actors models and musicians, and facing lots of cameras and media. Strange. If she doesn't want to be a tennis player because of "the pressure" then I would think she could just retire and do what she really wants to do. I am getting tired of the constant coverage of her anxiety.

    I read about Sloane Stephens saying she got death threats after she lost, and Shelby Rogers saying the same thing. I have to wonder why any professional athlete would subject themselves to social media. Do they really need the attention that much? I don't understand why they just don't hire a PR person (especially the bigger names that can afford it) to monitor their social media and respond on their behalf. I feel bad for Coco. I hope these young players like her, Emma, and Leylah can stay grounded and not let the hype and fame get to them. I know a lot of people hate Maria Sharapov
  11. I enjoyed this episode, although I was really hoping that Okoye would survive. Yes, but I believe Zonk's question was "why didn't she just shrink and fly away instead of sacrificing herself and letting the zombies take her down". She knew they need to get to the other side in order to be able to work on a cure, why couldn't she have flown along for the cure as well? My son's explanation is that after you go big, you get faint and have to rest. He says that is why Ant Man fainted after turning big at the airport in Civil War. I would tend to agree... in the comics, tha

    Fantastic result, so happy that Novaxx was denied. And it's even better that he got to the final so he will always realise just how close he came. I was so sick of the commentators who were clearly rooting for Novaxx. Hah. It was great. I rewound so many times. Then I found the photo on ESPN and it makes me smile. https://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=%2Fphoto%2F2021%2F0913%2Fr908387_1296x729_16-9.jpg&w=570&format=jpg I love how the ESPN article mentions that fans have never really warmed to him. So true.
  13. Saw it in the theater over the weekend, the theater was packed, which was great to see from a movie industry perspective. I thought it was fantastic. Definitely had a different feel than the usual MCU movie. The fight sequences were amazing, particularly the one on the scaffolding on the outside of the fight club building. That fight left me spellbound. Performances were great, particularly Awkwafina as the wide-eyed, neurotic sidekick, and Michelle Yeoh as the stately and powerful aunt. She always brings so much presence to every role she inhabits. I would love if she could tea

    Yep. The script practically writes itself, I am sure we will be hearing the following at various points (hopefully not repeatedly) during the match: they are both Canadian citizens (since Emma was born in Canada and left when she was two), they played juniors against each other, they bonded over their shared Canadian connection, they are both multicultural (Romanian/Chinese and Ecuadorian/Filipino). And above all, Leylah brought cupcakes into the locker room for her birthday and Emma ate one. CUPCAKES! Stop the press! These two are rivals but they are still just two little girls, they at

    I like both players and this is the final I wanted once the QF were set. Two very different styles of play. I think Leylah thrives on the crowd interaction, whereas Emma quietly does her own thing. The post-match interview, Renee Stubbs asked her if Leylah winning over a top-ranked player inspired her. Emma's response was that she just worries about herself at this point. Will be an exciting match. I'm sure we are going to hear "this is the future, how many times will these two face each other in the years to come" many many times from the commentators. I know that Pam Shrive
