Since we saw a glimpse of Magus I hope we get a Magus saga this season. Being that Magus is tougher than Thanos, The guardians will definitely need help from Nova, Quasar, The Asgardians and hopefully The Avengers return since Captain Marvel is also a cosmic character.

I imagine, with Adam and the Universal Believers (representing the Church of Universal Truth) being major parts of this season, we're definitely going to get the Magus Saga adapted in some form ;).

Eric Bauza spoke about a certain character from "Rock Your Baby" on Twitter (no spoilers from those who haven't seen it) and how he had a personal relation to it.
Firstly, congratulations to Mr. Bauza and his wife :anime:!

Second, that's a cool group shot of the entire voice cast. I remember when we had one with the cast of Assemble for the season 2 finale, which was also cool :cool:.

Thirdly, I had no idea he was the voice of Woodie the Woodpecker now :sweat:.

I would love it if we saw Quasar. But aren't the Quantum Bands destroyed?

So we're going from the Guardians vs. Symbiotes for the fate of Groot's homeworld, the Guardians teaming-up with Victoria to protect Spartax from the Symbiotes, and the Guardians having to contend with Symbiote-infected Asgardians :eek:.

Sounds like a very eventful three-parter :D.

It'll be nice to see Victoria and Thor again, and now we'll get to see Odin in action here which should be cool. Hoping they can get Frank Welker back as the All-Father :cool:.

Rinse, repeat, it's the Loeb/Quesada/Wacker run Marvel Animation way of coming up with stories. It's official, Marvel Animation is the modern day Filmation, except minus the charm and cool theme songs and musical scores.

I wouldn't go that far. Marvel Animation doesn't have everyone who ever worked there saying that it was a fate worse than death like Filmation lol.

What exactly is this rinse and repeating? The Symbiote Saga from USM? While on a surface-level I can see similarities, I expect it's going to be completely different in handling (and obviously in the characters focused on) o_O.

Heck, probably one of the bigger differences is we're likely not going to see any named Symbiotes turn up in this :sweat:.

I honestly don't think this will turn out too much like USM's Symbiote saga. And I don't mean to start an argument but I don't think one can fairly judge these episodes for having a rehashed plot before even seeing them. But to each their own.

The "rinse and repeat" that I'm talking about is another story where a symbiote (or in this case, symbiotes) possess someone. They also did a symbiote story in HULK AND THE AGENTS OF SMASH, except this symbiote grew larger when he absorbed the Agents of SMASH.

But I think that's what a symbiote usually does, possess someone. If they changed that, some might complain the show isn't like the comics. Using them like this apparently has other complaining the show is reusing some old plots. And I imagine if they didn't use them at all, others would complain they're limiting themselves to only characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I guess this all is a case of "you can't please all of the people all of the time".

As for me, I don't really mind. The symbiote story from last season was pretty good from what I remember and I liked they didn't really try to establish a connection between these symbiotes and the ones from USM.

One more thought - the descriptions for "Can't Fight This Seedling" and "Hitchin' A Ride" (the symbiote episode from last season) sounded very similar, yet the episodes played out pretty differently by the end.

My problem is not with the symbiotes possessing someone. My problem is with the recycling of SOME of the same villains and rehashing plot lines among all of the current Marvel shows.

I think that's been an issue in the past, but I don't think the Symbiotes popping up here for an arc is anywhere near as egregious as Dormammu showing up in practically every Dr. Strange episode.

I mean, they only had one appearance in season 1 and they aren't really that prevalent in other cartoons outside USM, so I just don't think it's that much of a rehash.

Just like the Inhumans always being mind controlled everytime they appear

Many action or shared universe shows repeat plots when they have over 100, especially over 200 episodes. Look at the Arrowverse for example. It's not that a big of a deal. Especially since both the Arrowverse and the Marvel Animated Universe almost always put their own spin with the formula.

Also, the Symbiote War three-parter hasn't aired yet. You're jumping to conclusions without having seen them.
