    Russell Crowe, Oh I bet hes an actor in one of the play scenes, have you seen ol' Russel these days? he's pretty damn huge, go watch Unhinged, he's a hefty man, too bad Volstagg is dead because he'd be a great for him.

    I don't know what super hero he'd be playing ūüėě

    Since it's a bit late in the game anyway, maybe he is just voicing a character like Beta Ray Bill like RyanDaly and monron999 said or maybe Throg.

    Again, it doesn't sound like it was a decision. Maryland very likely compelled them to close.

    Maryland didn't compel them to close. Diamond was forced to close. And It would have been illegal for them to resume operations within the state while Governor Hogan's stay-at-home order prohibited them from doing so.

    it may not even have been their choice (I'm not sure what Baltimore policies were early in the pandemic, but they wouldn't have been able to continue operating legally here in Philly)

    Baltimore doesn't really matter, because non-essential businesses were required to shutdown across the entire state of Maryland for a while there at the start of the pandemic.

    Anyone having difficulties standing theirs?

    I think it stands surprisingly well for its shape. I had mine in a bit of a wonky pose when I first got it, and it fell a couple times, but I adjusted the pose to make sure the feet were completely flat and the weight was well distributed, and it's stayed standing for about a month so far. Worst case scenario is you can put him in that crouching pose in the above photo. It's right out of one of the panels in the book.

    Why Carnage though... seems like an odd character to start a line with...

    It's technically not the start of a line (they've been making Star Wars helmet busts for a while now), so much as a branching out, but I assume Spider-Man and Venom are on their way VERY soon and this is going to Target because of the colors, and because every &$#@ing line from every &$#@ng brand has to has have retailer exclusives now.

    I've bringing thinking about the Evan Peters thing. Like most other people, I figured he'd been zapped in from the X-MCU (it works in different ways). MCU Quicksilver was dead so whoever warped him had to poach from a nearby alternate reality. The big reveal (SPOLIER) is that he's just some goofy dude that was living there. I still think he's X-MCU Quicksilver though. Here's why -

    He laughed when he heard the name boner. If he had grown up with that name, he'd cringe when he heard someone say it. Even nice people would snort when being introduced to him. He's hate it. Instead, he laughs at it. No way his name is Boner.

    The writing on this series was fairly complex. Twists, turns, misdirections. It was obviously thoroughly discussed and plotted out. Having some random dude living in Westview just happen to look exactly like an alternate reality version of Wanda's brother doesn't make any sense. The Quicksilvers are the alternate versions of each other, not Ralph Boner. The meta analysis means there is a reason Evan Peters is playing him.

    The necklace seemed to me to be a a token of mind control. Of course it could have been doing whatever the writers say it was doing, I just had the impression it was just mind controlling him, not also giving him his powers.

    Speaking of powers, he used that super speed quite comfortably, like he's had it for years. There was no learning curve, he knew how to stop and turn at crazy speeds. 

    Agent Woo went to Westfield because he hadn't heard from someone in the witness protection program. Ralph Boner is exactly the kind of joke name that Peter Maximoff would make up as a bro joke. It's clearly a made up name. 

    So my new theory is that somehow the X-MCU Quicksilver got into the XMU before Wanda came to Westview. The US government had him in hiding. Cue Wandavision.

    I bet there is more Evan Peters in the MCU and they tell us how he got there. I hope it has something to do with Dr. Strange 2, which I am bummed is not coming out in a couple of months.

    This was my thinking, too. My issue was that these threads were started and then dropped. I didn't need a payoff, but I would have been happier with the finale if they had continued to string us along.
    So, while I didn't need or expect him to say "I'm Pete Maximoff, but the other X-Men call me Quicksilver, and I'm from an alternate universe," it felt like having something yanked away without something like another mid-credits scene, or even a scene before the credits with Wu knocking on his door and an exchange along these lines...
    Pete/Ralph: *opens door* Can I help- Oh, it's you.
    Agent Wu: Mr. Bohner. I was worried about you.
    Pete/Ralph: Ha ha. Bohner.
    Agent Wu: What are you, twelve? Please stop laughing at that.
    Pete/Ralph: I'll stop laughing when you stop calling me that.
    Agent Wu: You know I can't do that. Not yet.

  7. With rumors that Jodie Whittaker is leaving Doctor Who, I had hopes that Gemma Chan could take over the role, but I had thought, "How is that going to work? She'll be so busy with Marvel stuff." But there isn't going to be another one of these. Her schedule is going to be wide open. This has one and done written all over it. I'm trying really hard to keep an open mind,  but I really can't imagine at all that this movie or these characters will be a hit.
