In this episode our hosts start off by talking about seeing Natasha Romanoff being able to pick up Thor’s “hammer,” Agent Lauren trying to “slip” it in (Wing saying Doctor Ewww…err…Doctor Who), Lauren drops some comic book knowledge about who really is capable of lifting Thor’s Hammer (Captain America, Natasha Romanoff and Wonder Woman), Haley read her first comic from 1971 in her read from the beginning of Marvel (a really mediocre Captain America as it was), each host looks forward to their favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3/4 movie and they talk about how impossible it is to even try and compare Marvel’s film run to anything else in film history, Haley reports that she has not yet watched Top Gun or Skyfall, the hosts speculate on how Marvel will be able to do Ant Man and Inhumans, and they note that Spider-man is definitely a favorite character in everyone’s Marvel’s top 5 characters.
In the news section starting at [21:02] the hosts continue to tally their quarter bets on the China Guardians Of The Galaxy box office numbers and giggle at Ghana’s $4,800 box office number. Lauren brings up the movie with the worst box office return of all time – Zyzzyx Rd with Tom Seizemore and Katherine Heigl at $30. Just about EVERYONE is more excited for Agent Carter than Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron. Haley and Stargate Pioneer are looking forward to Captain Marvel. Lauren is intrigued by Infinity Wars. They all speculate on who exactly is it in the Hulk Buster Iron Man Suit. Lauren tells us about Seanan McQuire’s Velveteen Versus series and her Superhero Bitch Fight. Also, Lauren’s favorite character is Pixie (Megan Gwynn) and she tells us that she was a VERY violent child. Will Civil War really need Spider-man? Our answer is no but having Spider-man around would definitely be a great addition to the MCU. Thanks to ComicAlliance.com we were able to see that there is only one potential crunch between all the comic book films from now to 2020 which is Captain America 3 and X-Men in May 2016.
The hosts talk about this week’s amazing Agent’s Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode A Fractured Rose at [47:05]. We know now not to trust ANYBODY named Ward. Is Talbot a Kree or why didn’t the Splinter Bomb dematerialize him? Haley brings up Mockingbird doing a twisty flippy thing through Hydra dust. Coulson’s new coffee cup is an I Hate Monday’s Grumpy Cat cup – and Trip probably was the one who brought it into work for May. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets a Star Wars crossover with a T-Shirt. Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter’s bickering and fighting is fun to watch! And surprisingly Mockingbird stole the episode from May for Lauren and Haley. Fitz and Simmons continue to be painful to watch and we all desparately long for the days before Ward dropped them to the bottom of the ocean from an airplane. Everyone on the podcast doubts that Ward was let go in collaboration with S.H.I.E.L.D.. Haley names this episode’s fight chorography as “May versus the Spiny Knife” and “Bobbi jumping through Hydra dust.” And everyone was awed over the duel intense dialogues between Coulson and Senator Ward and Skye and “Basement Ward” (as named by Lauren). Agents Walters is definitely an Agent Red Shirt as per Haley. Lauren labels S.H.I.E.L.D. as Chaotic Good while General Talbot is Lawful Good. We all wonder who map tattoo guy is at the end. There’s all sorts of “Two Weeks” quotes including The Money Pit which Lauren has never seen and Total Recall. Lauren, Haley and Wing teach everyone how to properly steep tea, which is NOT how it’s done in the episode. And there is no good reason why Ward wasn’t sedated for transport other than “Plot Requires” for Ward to escape. And NOBODY says “peacocking” anymore. And everyone is excited for the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. mid-season finale.
@LegendsofSHIELD generally pretty excited by the announcement yesterday. One or two titles I’m not dying to see (yet), but all interesting
@LegendsofSHIELD re: AoU scene. Love that Cap was able to shift the hammer, and the face when Thor noticed it. Love that they included that
