If she's going to be recast then I wish I grabbed a Leticia Wright Suri toy back when they were still 8 dollars.

It really irks me that people have a really ritualistic notions on how this stuff works. We'd be over this mess by now, if everyone had taken a decent biology class.

You said MJ and I thought of Michael Jackson instead.  I suppose I might think of Mary Jane too. Context.

The context was Space Jam

This made me LOL.

But on the subject of the timing of Black Widow, the film itself works either before or after Infinity War, but the character's arc needed to be closed before it closes forever.  I don't know when else it makes sense to put out that scene, though.  Endgame was better for not having a post-credits scene because that let the film feel like it closed the arc.  Spider-Man was the first post-Endgame movie released (and the last MCU theatrical release until now), but that already had a post and mid-credits scene.  It would've been too much.  The only options are tacking it on for Endgame re-releases or the Blu-Ray.

LOL

"But I don't see Nintendo doing that as it would be admitting the flaws were widespread and hurt their chances with the class action lawsuits they are handling."

Bingo. I expect there to still be a complaint about the Joycons. They can save the fix for Nintendo's next system.

Wasn't October 7th or 8th the day Switch was announced?

I wonder if the time stones work again at the end of time? If only Sylvie had known what was in that drawer.

This certainly has a boost of power given it can display 1080p in handheld mode. I don't expect it to be a huge upgrade. I wonder if this version will help with slowdown in games like Zelda? Maybe a boost to games like Doom?

It's very weird I had this feeling to check my phone in the middle of what is normally my sleep time. I'm a night owl and usually go to bed at 5 am. But I was still up, and decided to check my phone and was like Whoah!

I normally don't even use my phone either. Normally I do my netting on my computer.

I like that it has the Metroid dread color scheme.

Is it Ghostbusters 1, when Bill Murray goes to Sigourney Weaver's apartment, and she kicks him out?

You are correct.

I remember what the movie is now. No, not a contract killer.

A hint: The movie is a comedy.

That was a month ago, and now I don't remember what the answer was.

Everything is setting up for the multiverse. The Canon is becoming too limiting.

I can't wait to see Deadpool's surprise cameo in Doctor Strange 2.

Oh yeah. It's the spoiler thread.
Sylvie as in Silvie (Lushton)Laufeydottir, which I guess is Marvel's 2nd Enchantress

If you pay attention to the credits... she isn't completely credited as Loki.

In other news there is a palette swapped version of Scarlet Witch.

I just want a reason to care about the Suns again.

I like how they touched on the reverse butterfly effect. It's weird. They put into speech exact thoughts I've had on the subject.

Meteors, Natural Disasters, Apocalypses. These are all gigantic events that counter act the butterfly effect to some degree.  Because certain events are unavoidable then there would be an averaging effect on time over the course of history if one were to try to alter history.

I used to play this game called card game called Chrononauts, and there was a Back to the Future variant. In the game you play as different characters whose goal is to make history play out a certain way to ensure your existence. So, to make sure that you were born you had to make sure that certain "linchpin events" happened. An example of this in the BTTF version is Marty McFly, Marty McFly has to make sure that Lorraine Baines and George McFly kiss and the dance or he was just going to disappear.  In the regular version of the game you have to make sure the crash of the Hindenberg happens or the sinking of the SS Lusitania.

I like how the series is setting about to destroy the Marvel Canon which at this point has been sacrosanct. I'm ready for the Marvel Apocrypha.  Continuity has been too much of a problem. How do we get the X-men into the Marvel Universe? Simple, they exist in an alternate reality and the realities just need to be merged.

If I were to guess where the end of the series ultimately ends: The time keepers are just Loki. As In Me, Myself, and I.

I wouldn't want to play a game where the object is to put ghost peppers in your urethra. I'm not sure how you would turn that into a video game, but the idea of it is unpleasant.

I didn't go to Chic-fil-a since 2009 for the reasons listed above, I also wasn't too much of a fan as they were over-priced. McDonalds had that Southern Chicken sandwich and it tasted exactly the same and was cheaper.  But Chic-fil-A policies were reportedly improving since about 2017. My mom was really hungry one day in 2020, and figured an 11 year boycott was a long time.  Also, McDonalds had stopped carrying the southern chicken sandwich a while ago. I cracked. Their chicken nuggets are pretty good. Their prices are better than what they were.
I remember one time, around the time, maybe a little before the boycott was starting, it was a Sunday and they were closed so I went to Pollo Feliz instead.

I find it hillarious how the name could be translated.

I like Samas's suit. It doesn't change much, it's just enough to look different.

The game has a very resident evil 7 vibe, as in there is a constant chase. They had a little bit of that in fusion, but this seems persistent.
