Q: To Binge or Not to Binge?

A: To Binge!

Marvel is turning back to the binging strategy and presenting all of the episodes of Hawkeye -derived show Echo in one big upload coming Nov 29.

Echo vs Loki Season 2Forbes

It’s just been announced that Loki season 2’s release date will be on October 6, 2023, and Echo season 1 will debut about two months later, Echo will arrive on November 29, 2023. Disney is handling Echo a bit strangely, deciding to release all episodes on that day, rather than the week-to-week format of all their other shows. Maybe it’s just an experiment to see if they should do that going forward? Maybe it has to do with timing of the overall MCU?...

Swamp Thing meets RoboCop?

Story at Flickering Myth

Jimmie Robinson... His latest is Junk Rabbit, whose second issue hit comic book store shelves recently; the first issue sold out and went into a second printing. Pitched as “Swamp Thing meets RoboCop,” it’s planned to be a five-issue series that will wrap up in August. It features a world of the not-too-distant future overtaken by consumer waste, with society’s have-nots forced to eke out an existence among piles of garbage.

Junk Rabbit is known to this world’s citizens as a vengeful vigilante who aims to take down the corporate rulers of a nearby domed city, but as the first issue opens, he’s thought of as little more than an urban legend. When sightings of Junk Rabbit pop up again, though, the residents of the junkyards begin to hope that maybe things will change.

Guardians 3 Review

... the worst character in this film and again the most vandalized: Adam Warlock. Now, I know most normies aren't gonna care, but I do, because I actually read the source material, and I know that Adam Warlock is the 2nd most important character in the Infinity saga.

Introducing Adam Warlock into the Marvel cinematic universe now is like introducing Aragorn after they toss the ring into the depths of Mount Doom!
And while there isn't any real identity politics or general Disney wokeness in this, there is a little side of intersectional feminism when it comes to Adam Warlock.
They essentially took this Marvel OG and bad-ass and turned him into another himbo. That's on top of the himbo we already have with Drax.

Ten years later Iron Man III deserves better creditSuperherohype

Nuts! Latest The Flash preview Trailer

Looks like a $110 million start for Guardians

That’ll knock The Super Mario Bros. Movie off the top spot..."

Comparison: Quantumania had a $106 million start, and Black Panther Wakanda Forever had a $181 million start.

"GOTG3 was modeling out like Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. However, some saw it going under $100M — which would be an awful start for the third fully opened summer after the pandemic. Yes, this opening is off 25% from GOTG2’s $146.5M start, but it’s also 17% ahead of the original 2014 movie’s $94.3M opening."Deadline Hollywood
