    Slightly off topic but kinda related to the multiverse stuff. Apparently its been confirmed that Jamie foxx will be playing electro and Alfred molina will be playing doc Ock in the new Spider-Man film, unconfirmed rumours also state that Charlie cox has filmed some scenes in the movie as well

    So the Wandavision episode today was the first that I was not happy with, in fact I was very disappointed. I suppose that is what happens when a mystery is set up extremely well and creatively, but the writers could not stick the landing.

    At least Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are very good actors and the production designs are amazing for a tv show. I will not spoil anything other than my reaction, which is a major bummer. But maybe the last episode will change that.

    The only real problem I have with the reveals, is that they took away some of the moral ambiguity, since it's pretty clear no, that Wanda is more or less an innocent in this situation.

    Really enjoyable episode 8 and nice reveal at the end, even if we were expecting it.

    Don't get me wrong I really liked it and I'm glad this didn't end up with Wanda being the villain. Cause I much prefer her still to be heroic (I personally consider Dissembled and House of M to be a pretty bad character assassination of her).

    But a lot of the moral ambiguity and creepiness of Wanda and her situation is gone know, since she effectively did nothing wrong
     
    The Hex not even being a conscious act of hers
    . And that does strip away some of the atmosphere that made the show so engaging.

    I don't think it's a bad thing the the finale, will be somewhat more of traditional MCU, hero fights the villain fair, but I can fully acknowledge that, that does strip away some of WandaVision's uniqueness.

    We don't know how it's going to end remember this:

    Episode 8 ,... the most satisfying of all the reveals. Unfortunately no one does a mystery box well. Episode 4 ... was way to early. Screeners were sent episodes 1-3 and they raved about the series. Definitely had some disappoint in all the episodes that followed.

    Best thing about this episode....
     
    No Darcy...No Monica...No Jimmy...we never needed them!
    This isn't popular with others but I'm absolutely done with the super fan on a team troupe we get with Darcy Lewis and the sudden god like no build up to female roles like Monica...Jimmy character is only at his best as the agent that has no clue whats going on


    I'm curious though ... after we get Falcon & Winter soldier will we have enough body to say who did it best Netflix or Disney+? Not happy about the mouse deciding to make an extra 90 million off subscribers with there $1 price hike after 1 year. Personally I think this is coming from lawsuit settlements that there passing the buck off to their subscribers.

    My god can't you people just enjoy something without dissecting every little thing about it??

    And since when did a show become a political debate or a war on Disney?? I can't stand Disney at all I am watching a great tv and leaving it at that....

    People will ALWAYS find fault with something it's just that some people don't want to ruin it by wasting time complaining about it non stop..

    I'm pretty sure the price hike is down to Star being added.

    I've said it before and Il' say it again. A lot of Disney bashers don't really care about the issue at hand nor do they even really care about Disney's actualy corruption.They just do it because it' "kool to crap on Disney".

    Sorry missed the "Positive Only" quotes in the subject thread...Being a Basher or an Apologists does not make one "kool".. but having an actual discussion with diplomatic people is pretty cool!

    Oh make no mistake about it the Mouse is just as a bad as all the other big corporate meanies at the end of the day, but my criticism still stands.

    If that was the case then EVERYTHING in the world is corrupt in away from sports,politics,hollywood etc. so complaining about the BAD stuff all the time tends to ruin it look at Star Wars right now...I try and concentrate on the good things...

    So, with the last episode:

     
    I believe that they have opened the door to the mutant gene having already existed in the MCU, Agnes saying and I paraphrase "something that was there already but would have normally withered away on the stalk." Perhaps the Hex triggers that latent gene in people? Not too mention the three snaps of the gauntlet contributing something? Eh, who knows?

    This was a cool episode.

     
    The Agatha backstory was crap though... it looked like something from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and was completely unnecessary.

    I really liked the scene that took place between Wanda and Vision in the Avengers Mansion.

    My question now is, if Wanda created Vision 2.0 and he can only exist within her storybook world, how is he going to move beyond the Hex?

    Also, what happened to Vision 1.0's dismantled body?

    I'm pretty sure they put it back together to make White Vision. As for Vision 2.0. I think he's either going to ultimately fade away, or somehow merge with White Vision

    Is agathas book that featured in the episode the missing book from doctor strange? I think white vision will possibly merge with wandas version of vision. Unless they intend to use him in the second season or dr strange n multiverse of madness. I’m also looking forward to the cameo of the mysterious actor Paul Bettany mentioned. Rumour has it and according to my 11yo it’s deniro as mephisto

    I read something about this mystery character and it stated that the character Paul Bettany was talking about was in fact himself as the other Vision.

    Also, along with my previous prediction, I have a distinct feeling that

     
    White Vision is actually Ultron. Particularly when you notice the color schemes of the two AI's when Ultron first came online in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

    I feel vision will merge with white vision so we will have his personality or 'soul' back but the tradeoff will still be that he won't have any of the memories/feelings for wanda.

    Yep, this very well could be the case...

    Just like in the comics when Wanda and Vision "split up."
