Yeah as the story goes. The post scene you speak of was a last minute add in in a last ditch effort to drum up more interest in the film. I have a feeling the so called leak wasn't as much a leak as an intentional slip just to help fill seats. It's cool and it makes sense that this is the only direction The MCU should be heading but personally thisk a reboot is the smarter option.

With each Marvel flop it gets harder and harder to see a path for Kevin Feige to find a way back to greatness. While I have little doubt a movie like Deadpool 3 which will see the return of fan-favorite Hugh Jackman as Wolverine will do well, beyond that its hard to see any path that takes the MCU down the same path DC has been traveling on.

That's a shame. Hoping it doesn't diminish the great stuff that went before. Also, I have no desire to give any weight to the empty criticisms that the likes of Scorsese have made. Some here may be so young, they don't remember a time when the very idea of superheroes was automatically considered silly and just a dumping ground for children. Hence if such a movie/tv show was made, it would have weak talent and even weaker budget and production value. The view then became a self-fulfilling prophecy; no "serious" actor or director would touch such projects. Batman '89, Blade and Marvel Studios turned all that around big time, and I'd hate to see it all go back to the dark days.

If that was the original goal then they really, really dropped the ball with the end result.  The villain was easily the worst part of the film for me, with a slim patina of a backstory and no real development or weight to her.  I understood her motivations, but I didn't *feel* them, if that makes sense.  It just felt like, "here's the character you're supposed to hit, get her before she strikes again" mixed with characters who really should have had no problem handling her getting blocked by plot armor until the finale (hey Carol, maybe try shooting the person whose wrist can absorb your power blasts in the leg?). 

It wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, there were a few laughs here and there, action scenes were mostly ok, but the villain just didn't seem to matter and I was never made to care about the stakes. 

Yes I think the weakness of the villain was the whole reason they changed it all up. The villain doesn't need to be the focal point of the movie but there needs to be a little better development to get us to care. This one was a one timer at best.

I saw it yesterday. I enjoyed it overall but it needed to be cleaner. As someone that watches all the Marvel stuff, I knew what was going on but if you don't watch Disney+, then yeah you're gonna be confused. That's probably Marvel's big draw back is they expect you to have seen everything. Lots of stuff that could use some better explanations. I won't spoil it but there's a scene midway through that will drive a lot of fans crazy. It's so cringy. I think they're trying to make this one far too family friendly and it goes overboard. There's also a lot of Skrull and Kree stuff that's happened that is just gossed over.  I felt that was the stuff they should have covered in Secret Invasion so the audience was better prepared.  I enjoyed it but yes, it certainly wasn't their best work. The flirkin stuff is great, Kamella's family is very entertaining and the ending leads nicely into some of the next stuff.

Just gonna reiterate that I enjoyed it. The movie felt comic booky to me. As far a Secret Invasion, it needed years more set up and involvement with the Kree Skrull war to have any weight. It was the only show movie that my wife and I don't even defend a little. It was just garbage.

I don't think everything has been great lately, but it certainly isn't as bad as the internet would have you believe. I do agree that we are getting further and further from the comics and getting further from good storytelling. I think the desire of directors to."tell their own story" and Feige letting them in order to get more talent involved is actually getting in the way of a better overall product. The cohesion that made the first arcs work is waining. What is Shang Chi up to? They couldn't have had Starfox show up at Knowhere or something? At least more than a blurb Jens computer about a damn Celestial coming out of the ocean!?!? Part of this is impatience on the Fandoms part, but even I'm getting fed up with zero payoffs or connections while getting new storys told. I don't think it's unfixable, but it is getting stretched thin imo.

I too didn't find this movie to be the whole dogs and cats living together/ mass hysteria/ end of times dumpster fire that critics are making it out to be, lol. No, it wasn't End Game level, but it was still fun and colourful and pretty imaginative in some parts. Like it's been said here already, I think the film just needed a tighter script and more development with the villain.

In terms of the state of the MCU, I don't believe it's all going over a cliff, and I think too much is being made of what cranky old directors (who are clearly coming more from a place of fear) think. End Game was an extremely tough act to follow, and Covid threw everyone off their game. Recalibration is all that's needed, and the old comics of the 70s and 80s are still the best guide to get insight into how to follow up on a huge multi-character tie-in event (and how to start a new one). At the end of the day, people are still going to gravitate to a really good story with compelling, interesting and fun characters.

People take movies way too seriously. You are going to be entertained. Sure, some movies try to convey a message but for the most part they are for entertainment. I went into this and had a good time. In fact I have had a good time for most post-Endgame MCU stuff. Do they have poor executions? Yes absolutely but I continue to watch them because I enjoy them.

Seems that taking shots at this movie and Marvel Studios is becoming a past time....I just saw the latest Indiana Jones and it was nowhere the stinkbomb people are saying it was. And I can  be pretty demanding. I hope they don't let themselves fall victim to haters.

Felt the same about Indy. Definitely had flaws, but it was still a lot of fun.

I could go on forever about this. I agree, I have enjoyed the post Endgame stuff too and feel people are being way too hard on Marvel. Sure, there have been stinkers (Multiverse of Madness, Love and Thunder, Quantumania), but even the worst Marvel project is a triumph considering the interconnectedness to such a massive universe of films (nothing has ever been done at such a scale in cinema). All that being said, I wish Feige and team would go back and review earlier projects to get an idea of where they came from. I watched Ironman 1 over the holidays and it has an energy about it that would be great to see them recapture...you could tell they were hungry and had something to prove.  Love to see them hungry again, but I think they are going to blow us away with Deadpool 3 and I think they are going to use that to right the ship in many ways. Hope I'm right.

I take my entertainment seriously..........perhaps too much, because i work in the craft.   My eyes and brain are poison because I can spot flaws and faults instantly. My brain is always evaluating what I watch, but I'm really only triggered when I see something wrong. And I've been seeing a lot of "wrong" stuff.
Good craft sucks me in, like it should for any viewer.   
What I've seen, post-Endgame, has been............again, for me............weak-sauce.
A couple of the TV shows were okay--I liked She-Hulk and Hawkeye, but none of the movies.  There's a real demarcation line pre- and post-Endgame in terms of story, which is where I think Marvel Studios is faltering.
Professionally speaking, I think their Phase 4 stuff all needed about 6 more months each on story development.  Tweaks and fine-tuning.
They've got their character shticks down, but they are relying on them to carry the plot........and some of their plots are not making a lot of sense, as rolled out.

Now, I get it--these things are connected, but they also have to stand alone.......and therein lies their problem.  They all, structurally, need to build to a crescendo, a big finish.....but the flaw within serialized cinema stories is that, tonally, you've only got a limited number of finishes before you start repeating yourself.  Repetition is.......redundancy, and THAT is the kiss of death.  And a lot of the Marvel films, based on comics ,as they are, fall into that trap because of WHAT they are.  You cannot have a big finish like Endgame has all the time, because it loses it's bluster.  But when you have Ant-Man throwing an army of a zillion ants at Kang to defeat him............you started sensing the same "big fight" over and over again.....and it loses its power.
And they know this....so they try to change things up, and........it's not working, it's falling flat.   At least for me.

Can't wait to see it again. Movies always hit a little different at home compared to in the theater. In theater, I am much more ready to be into it and there to have a good time and go for a little ride. At home I am more likely to get distracted or pick at the warts in the overall experience. So we'll see how it holds up. There are plenty of movies I like better at home, but some that go the other way too.
