What’s going on fellas,
Marvel did it again! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie that looks like that. The whole movie was that Ant-Man scene on steroids. They can do a different genre for every movie and yet it’s still grounded in a humanity of their characters and somehow always funnier than I’m expecting it to be. Folks can quibble over story if you want to, and it just came out so no spoilers but these damn movies are so much fun man.
And then you have WB. You really couldn’t have planned this week better if you’re Marvel, they drop Doctor Strange and get another hit, meanwhile Fox loses their director for Deadpool and even worse Famuyiwa drops out of the Flash? He was the main reason I had hope for that movie, and now? Things are so bad with that studio, these Wonder Woman trailers have been fucking amazing and I still can’t let myself get too excited because of their track record.
Somebody lining up the trailers clearly didn’t listen to your show and that block of white washing stories though. Got hit with both the Ghost in the Shell and that Matt Damon Great Wall movie before Doctor Strange and that was just awkward timing.
P.S. I thought it had already peaked by last show, but I just gotta give Ashanti the slow clap for the last two weeks of trolling. Levels I’ve never seen before. I’m just glad Rod didn’t lose to her in fantasy, that could have been bad.
