    Thanks! I was really thrilled with the film. I stand by my initial comment that it's the best MCU movie (in my opinion). It's the Marvel film that I've been waiting for since that Nick Fury tease at the end of Iron Man. All of that promise pays off in a big way here.

    What would the others in your top 3 be? I'm guessing two of the following: The Avengers, Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy...

    Speaking of the movie, on the topic of discussing it in threads other than the Civil War talkback thread -- is using spoiler tags for 2 weeks sound good to everyone?

    So nobody knows what exactly Vision is? I guess you don't want to explain the part of his origin where Ultron designed and intended for Viz to be his new body to the general public :ack:.

    It makes you wonder what was the "PR" for Scarlet Witch, and if anyone, outside the Avengers, knows about her involvement with Ultron and Hydra o_O.

    The government still wants the Iron Man Armor? Isn't that what War Machine is for :sweat:?

    Yeah, one has to wonder what, if any, information the Avengers issues to the press. It doesn't look like they have an official press liaison yet.

    Everhart seems to conflate buzz words into a pastiche masquerading as news, something Will seems to poke her for on the report videos.

    Or a government liaison, which might be part of the problem :sweat:.

    Well, she's always been an "opinionated go-getter" who jumps to conclusions (and in bed), so I guess I can't blame Will :p.

    Exactly, so enter JCTC to fill the gap since SHIELD isn't revealing itself anytime soon and the ATCU's core focus is too narrow to fold over to the Avengers -- and it's the international community calling for oversight and not use the USA.

    EDIT: I bought a copy of the EW April 22/29 issue and they have a summer movie preview. In it, on page 39, they hint Zemo is "still similar to what you know of Zemo, a revenge character." So definitely it sounds like he wants revenge against Cap and/or the Avengers. Hmm. Either he's ex-HYDRA like Rumlow or since this is post-Age of Ultron, maybe he's a Sokovian? Eh, probably the former.

    The Winter Soldier and The Avengers. Objectively, The Winter Soldier is probably the best, but I personally love The Avengers most.

    I actually don't love GotG as much as the rest of the world. It's very good movie, but it wouldn't make my personal Top-5 of MCU.

    The movie was released in Brazil last Thursday and I've saw it last Sunday.

    It is very good. One of the best from Marvel Universe. It has some minor inconsistencies. The biggest one can be resolved if they choose a given path in future sequels.

    I'm allowed to do a review in this thread using Spoilers tag?

    No, we prefer you wait for the talkback thread that will be posted Thursday night at around 10 PM Eastern Time. Either James Harvey or I will post it. Thank you!

    EDIT: More WHiH posts today

    -New rumors hint at government funded prison built to contain “superpowered prisoners.”

    I saw this on Friday here in Yorkshire. It did not disappoint. Everything you expect from a big, big Marvel movie, but it still managed to make it about both the main antagonist/protagonist, without failing the characters or making one of them the clear villain, as the comic of the same name did.

    What a film, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did when you get to see it :)

    Man Christine, you always have to spin something, don't you :sweat:?

    I'm sure Scott's very happy about that turn of events :p.

    Indeed. The close up on Will's reaction. :d

    On the news ticker - Good to see another AOS nod (the ATCU bit), Stephen Strange, another Trevor Slattery movie, Culver reopening their library years after Ross and Hulk wrecked it, Scott vindicated, Sokovia benefit concert, old documents of Dr. Erskine's found -- wow!

    Then Civil War busting out already, really cool to see it happen 'live' on WHiH's viral media. Nice touch that the field reporter in Lagos was Jackson Norriss from the All Hail the King one-shot - the reporter interviewing Trevor in Seagate only to secretly be a member of the Ten Rings all along. And to end the string of posts, the Sokovia Accords released.

    Maybe that means he has an "inside scoop" as to what's going on ;)?

    This gives me a bit of hope. I've gone from 100% that Cap is going to die to maybe he will be shone locked up in the raft. And Avengers3 will have him getting out to lead the fight against Thanos.
