The mid-credits scene? whatever…

That end credits scene though! Dang!! .Awesome scene. Plus After end game, Marvel was alsway going to struggle a bit with the current phase. Shang-Chi was great , but them and The Eternals. Are not that known by the causal film watcher. Onto Spider-Man and Doctor Strange which will land.


I don't get all the negativity?

I had covid so I had to watch it on a shtty pirate copy (not through choice) and I was still entertained.

I thought it was great.

Its weird the critics hate it but the fans gave it 81%.

I think its such a great set up for Marvel cosmic characters and Pip the Troll? ........... has to get a thumbs up from me, the guy is funnier than Rocket Racoon.

Maybe…I am being too harsh…might give it a rewatch again in a fortnight or once if is on Disney plus. My issue was …Thats always been an issue with the eternals even in the comics. On paper the lore and intergalactic politics that exist with them is cool. But there is wayyy to much going on with them to catch general audience let alone comic readers. The same thing occurred with the inhumans. But I did like the end credit scene ..tbf. Show the spoiler
Blade’s first appearance could be interesting, positioning him as a loner just taking out random vampires without seeing the bigger picture. Would love to the MCU Blade have a similar arc where he realizes he can do more good by having a long term strategy

Tbf I am not used to seeing Pip the Troll being with Show the spoiler
Eros when infact he is friends with Adam Warlock and Drax in comics. And what about a Rocket Racoon, Howard the Duck, Pip the Troll, Cosmo the Spacedog, squirrel girl, & Cosmic Ghost Rider team up series on Disney plus?. Bcs why the hell not?

Loved it.

Seeing Rob stark and Jon snow together on screen for the first time since season 1 Game of Thrones was epic.

Surprised Jolie or Hayek weren't the main characters. Pleasantly surprised.

The valet Bollywood actor was awesome. He's massive in India so that's them hooked.

Did get confused a bit. Knew nothing about Eternals before the film. Know nothing about pip or Harry Styles character.

End credit scene, I know he plays a superhero. Moonknight? Black Knight? Are they the same character? No idea whose voice it was at the end

All in all, enjoyable movie. Best since Shang Chi. Marvel does it again.

But now comes the big one. Spider-Man. Whole world awaits.

The excitement builds.

Saw the trailer for Hawkeye series before the film. Coming in 2 weeks on Disney plus. Can't wait.

Truly is a golden age

Voice at the end was Mahershala Ali who's going to be the new Blade.

Pip the Troll is an obscure character but he's fkin amazing, so glad he's made it to the screen, he's hilarious in the comics.
Harry plays Star Fox (Aka Eros) who's Thano's brother, basically he can make people fall in love with him, he's basically like cupid.

I'm gutted I didn't watch it in the Cinema but I had Covid so had to watch a crappy pirate download, I could go this week but I'm working every day.

Don't need to see the trailer tbh.

Already pissed I saw the previous one. Has completely ruined what would've been an epic surprising moment.

Already know I'm watching this. No need for a trailer to sell it to me

Someone I know posted on FB that they went to an early screening and they said it was legit one of the best movies they've seen in ages.

He's a GB fan so I don't know if he was over exaggerating but it seems that its good regardless.

Tbh just from the trailers you can tell this is much better quality than the previous female movie which looked trash.

Tickets booked for Spider-Man. 15th December.

Opening night

Will watch all Maguire and Garfield ones before that to refresh the memory as well as the animated one.

Lol just realized Arsenal v West Ham that night. Spider-Man takes priority

Met and spoke to Tom Holland today

He's smaller than I thought. He was in black Spider-Man costume with the mask off doing promo work
