    That was my first reaction, too. lol.

    Definitely a chicken or the egg and Catch-22 arguments. They can't sue Loki, Thanos or the Chitauri. But they can put the bulls eye on the Avengers. If not Tony and Bruce, then Strucker would have probably unleashed Ultron and it would have been the same result, imo. And on top of that, they still don't really have any preemptive measures against invasions from space or other dimensions... and HYDRA is like that one weed in your backyard that just won't die and keeps propagating more weeds and you're the bad guy for not getting rid it even though you pluck them by the roots every time... I digress.

    I guess the reaction in modern day politics is to stifle the issue in bureaucracy regardless of it solving the real problem?

    4/23: Truckloads of stills and scans out today. Suffice to day, we're at that point -- go all in and look at everything online or segregate yourself from it and wait for the movie.

    A collection of 60.

    A collection of 25+posters.

    4/25: Twitter Q&A with the cast on Tuesday on @TwitterMovies. Tweet using #AskTeamCap or #AskTeamIronMan.

    WHiH tweets
    • 4/23: New Mexico crater still drawing crowds.
    • 4/23: Potomac River clean up almost done
    • 4/24: Asks who was behind Pym Tech explosion and where were the Avengers
    • 4/24: Captain America exhibit goes on nation wide tour next week
    • 4/25: Does War Machine pose a conflict of interest?
    • 4/25: Annual science conference in Bern
    And looks like another WHiH video will be released on Tuesday centered who a debate of who should pay for damages caused by superheroes.

    Maybe Tony should do it? I mean, he's pretty much paying for everything else and Sokovia is kind of his fault :sweat:.

    I'm sure the Avengers caught the Pym Tech Explosion...on the news :p.

    Yeah, reach into that coin purse, Tony.

    lmao. Yup.

    I guess in Ant-Man the implication was they were all gone on some mission minus Falcon. Maybe another dead end tip on Bucky in Europe.

    It would be interesting to see if they linked Ant-Man and his infiltration of their base to what happend at Pym Tech, which may have been another reason Sam was seeking Scott out.

    I was wondering when we were going to see more actual promotional stuff with Spidey in them after the last trailer ;).


    But that scene was amazing :D.

    EDIT: WHIH Newsfront: The Cost of Saving the World:

    Man or Mandarain the Trevor Slattery Story, I'd totally watch that.

    Nice glimpse of the webshooter.

    Huh. Well put.

    I'd watch that movie, too. And appears Pym Tech is still active after all.

    From the sounds of it, it seems like part of the frustration with the collateral damage from the Avengers' battles is because the repairs are coming out of taxpayers's money and the government having to handle the repairs. But obviously there's a lot of people who realize that The Avengers are still doing great work and saving lives in-spite of that :).

    Frankly, I would be shocked if Tony wasn't footing the bill to some degree and The Avengers never once offered to aid in relief efforts in New York or Sokovia o_O.

    WHIH Newsfront: The Avengers and the White House


    Given how he seems to be faring against Falcon and Bucky, not to mention the fact that Spider-Man is one of the few movie Superheroes who has never killed, that seems like an apt description ;).

    Got to love the news ticker - nods to Ant-Man, AOS Season 3, Avengers shawarma teaser. Great to see WHiH tweets culminate in this report and lead into Civil War - with the milestone of the Potomac clean up done, Ellis is in talks with retired Ross amid international pressure for a more strategic response plan with the Avengers in reaction to future events. Well done.

    So I guess more and more people are noticing the Lang family pet...I'd say Scott should take care of it and shrink it, but that would probably break Cassie's heart :sweat:.

    "Future responses handled in a more disciplined manner?" So basically, the government tells The Avengers how to do their jobs? As if they have any idea what it's like having super-powers and actually responding to the kind of Superhuman, widespread, and colossal threats they fight on a daily basis? Do The Avengers need to go through courses on proper safety procedures? I'm with Will, making the government in charge of The Avengers will only hamper their response time and effectiveness, not improve it o_O.

    I guess the news media or the public aren't aware of just how much Ross blundered or made things worse when it comes to his interaction with the Superhero community. Though I guess after the Hulk's rampage in Age of Ultron, more people might be willing to listen to the guy who hunted the Hulk for years :ack:.

    Also, new clip:

    The news about the Transia Corporation announcing an interim CEO (as it's former head, Gideon Malick, was killed in a recent episode of the series).

    Me, too. Can you imagine, "Uh, hello? Should I lift this heavy piece of debris up and save these people? Should I ask if they have insurance? Hold on. There's an alien trying to punch me, should I hit back or call for approved back up? -- Uh, say that again. I'm getting one bar here. They must have knocked out the cell tower in the invasion."

    I saw it few days ago too. I will wait until talkback thread is put up, before I give any in-depth opinions, but this definitely is one of the best of MCU (personally would place it somewhere in TOP-3).
