    I saw that. They played it straight, but it made me think of this.

    I thought they weren't allowed to use the word "mutants" at all in the MCU until now. I could be wrong about that.

    Damn. I'm actually nearing the end of re-watching the series on Netflix. I just saw the episode in which Nog loses his leg. Oddly enough, I had no idea what he looked until I saw the post by his widow.

    Smallville stars reunite in first look at Arrowverse crossover

    I almost want to watch this just to see Tom Welling as Superman and Erica Durance as Lois Lane one more time. I'm not sure why they think fans want to see Brandon Routh as Superman again, though. Even worse, they pissed off Michael Rosenbaum so he's not back as Lex Luthor!

    Saw Spider Man: Far From Home last night and, honestly, I'm not sure why it earned $1B at the box office. It was decent. The last 45 minutes were really well done and fun, but I didn't like the first 75 minutes much at all. Man, I hate super hero movies that spend the majority of the film not letting the super hero be super.

    The black suit was ass, and the elementals just reminded me of Sandman in Spider Man 3 (not a good thing). Also, Stark casually made a global murder machine and then gave it to a 16-year-old kid without so much as an instruction booklet. Like, WTF?

    The last 45 minutes saved it, but I was not thrilled for most of it.

    Because MCU fanatics will continue to throw money at studios.

    I actually didn't mind Stark giving him EDITH from a storytelling perspective because wasn't out of character for him to do something so reckless, but I do see your point with much of the post. It certainly wasn't among the best of the MCU movies.

    I never read comics growing up, so I've never understood the appeal of the movies. I did see the one where Wolverine died and thought it was pretty good, but it did nothing to make me feel like I need to see another one.

    Deadpool is a whole 'nother story.

    It's not just comic book fans who are watching these movies. A movie won't make a billion dollars off comic book fans. These movies have crossed over into the mainstream. A lot of people find the appeal who have never read a comic in their lives. In a lot of ways, it boils down to a lot of them just being fun movies.

    I can see that, but I find that movies that rely so much on green screen technology and computer generated images just leave me cold. I'd much rather watch movies where people actually interact with each other.
