We are agreed the worst MCU movie is Thor: The Dark World, right?

 

The Incredible Hulk for me. Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron belong in that tier.

Yeah, the only important takeaways from IM2 are the vibranium & Fury showing up.  Johanssen seemed comically bad as Nat, too, so it's a good thing her subsequent appearances make that easy to forget.  I wonder who gets the credit there: Scarlett, her stunt double, the directors?  I've seen blown Lucha spots that showed less space than some of those action scenes.

 

My favourite Black Widow scene is her very first taking Tony Stark, Pepper Potts and especially Happy Hogan by surprise in the ring. Only things the movie has going for it is Black Widow, Justin Hammer and the post-credits scene with Mjolnir.

Thor 2: The Dark World is NOT BAD. It's not great, I hesitate to say that it's even good, but I caught the whole thing on cable while house sitting for someone a couple years ago. It was good enough. It is completely replacement level.

Couple caveats though...The house was nearly a mansion and I watched it in their theater room that also had a popcorn maker. I could have watched Episode 1 and thought it was just OK in that environment.

I always thought Thor 2 is a lot of fun.  Iron Man 3 is much worse

I have a soft spot for The Incredible Hulk for 2 reasons.....how good Tim Roth was as Blonsky and the possibility of seeing The Leader

TWO major cast members returning. You'll know the other one at the end of the first trailer. It's a pretty big WTF/HOLY SHIT reveal.

Following a Mark Hamill voice over with a villainous cackle is going to throw some people.

Spoiler

I could see some people thinking it's Hamill doing the laugh, but I assume it's Palpatine given that after the lights came up once the trailer played, Ian McDiarmid was standing there and in the Palpatine voice he said, "Play it again!"

Actually, I'm spoilering that just in case. It was shown during the Star Wars Celebration just a little bit ago so it might not be much of a spoiler, but it's related to the cackle at the end of the trailer.

Rise of Skywalker?  That's um, well that'll get some theories going.

So at first glance, this is going to baffle the MRAs because it seems to backpeddle a bunch of TLJ stuff but still has Rey as supreme badass worldkiller.

The gorilla glued Kylo mask is the perfect symbol for this movie, right?

Cool to see Kylo Ren soldering his mask. My favourite character of the new trilogy by far.

A few days ago Rian Johnson made a comment about how he's not going to be at all upset if something like Rey's parents are retconned. It was in response to a question he received, but he said that and said he's just excited to see where the journey goes and if that's something that is retconned then he trusts it will be done right. Doesn't exactly mean it will happen or anything.

As someone who has a basic understanding of Star Wars:

 

That's Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious cackle, right?
