Its the IATSE strike resolution
https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2021/10/iatse-amptp-strike-averted

Basically, Disney (and most other Hollywood companies) functioned on 'crunch time,' just like the game industry (and truthfully between post-processing, CGI and etc, there's little functional difference between the two beyond the obvious stuff). The new agreement limits 14 hour workdays and forces companies to have a 10 hour turnaround between workdays (ie, you can't finish shooting at midnight and force people to be back in at 6 am) The new limits on workdays and turnaround basically forced Disney to add about 3-4 months to each film in order to accomodate a saner work schedule. (So Strange2 moves from March to May, Thor4 May to July, BP2 July to Nov and Marvel2 Nov to Feb)

Like the game industry, pushing companies away from grinding their workforce into little nubbins is a good thing.


Agreed all around. This is exactly where unions become a good thing.

We got a small presentation from Marvel Studios for Disney+ Day.

Long and short of it:

1. Extended look at Hawkeye, including a cool one-shot car chase sequence. Looks like fine. Kate looks like a riot.

2. Brief glimpse of Moon Knight. Looks trippy, and spooky. Oscar Issac is my man-crush. He looks great.

3. Brief look at She-Hulk (w/special guest star, Hulk!). Looks interesting. Cool logo.

4. Spider-Man cartoon, eh, whatever.

5. Groot animated series. Fine.

6. GotG Holiday Special, whatever.

7. Iron Heart... *sigh*.

8. Ms. Marvel could be interesting.

9. Echo, a spin-off for Hawkeye. We knew that was coming (slick logo though).

10. What If...? Season 2, we knew that was coming. No footage though, which is weird given the Gamora/Stark one was further along than the rest.

11. Agetha: House of Harkness I'm dubious over, but we'll see.

12. Marvel Zombies. Another animated series. I hope it's not just a bigger version of that What If...? episode.

13. Loki Season 2. Long wait for that one no doubt.

14. Secret Invasion cool (bad logo). Blink-and-you'll-miss-him look at a shot of Nick Fury (or Talos as Nick Fury!).

15. And Armour Wars, which is the one I want the most. Or it was. Because the 16th thing is the best reveal ever...

16. X-Men '97! Yes! A continuation of the 90's X-Men series, with the creators and cast coming back. OMG!

There's some bits uploaded to the service itself, most interesting are the Obi Wan, Willow and Baymax previews, although the first 2 are very light on footage. (A few brief glimpses in Obi Wan though.)

Outside of the NatGeo trailers ("Chris Hemsworth is Super Buff... and also Nature" & "We Made a Nature Series Based on an ID4 Meme") most things were pretty light on footage.

Scuttlebutt is that Ms. Marvel's power won't be stretchy like Mr. Fantastic but creating purple light constructs sort of like Green Lantern.

Far cheaper and probably less gak-looking on a TV budget.

I have no doubt. I don't really like stretchy as a power but I like her character so looking forward to see how this plays out. I saw someone complaining about the costume but I thought it was pretty clear in the teaser that it was a home-made Captain Marvel suit Kamala had made and that later she'll have her own costume. Since Inhumans bombed horribly I wonder how she'll get her powers without a Terrigan Bomb.

Yeah not really sure how they are gunna go about her origin and powers. Though i think its less that stretchy is difficult/hard and more that Fantastic 4 is coming and 2 stretchy characters might be hard to make look different in interesting ways.

I think they should put all their 'stretchy' stuff into making sure that Mr. Fantastic looks amazing. The other 3 FF are pretty easy to do, comparatively speaking. Mr. Fantastic is much harder.

It will likely be a long and expensive process to get that right, something that they wouldn't have time to do with Ms. Marvel.

No idea at this point. That is specifically one of the mysteries laid out at the end of Shang Chi.

Yeah, the lack of foundation for the Kamala and Riri characters’ origins are my only issues with them bringing them in. Going to require near complete rewrites.

I think that is what they were in the comics. MCU seems to be pointing that way as well. But who knows really.

In the comics they are Makulan tech. (Fin Fang Foom is a Makulan and they were found in his ship).

It’s entirely possible the MCU hasn’t quite decided what they are just yet.

A few episodes thru Hit Monkey and so far it’s pretty good. Just kind of accept the absurdity at face value and move on. Gotta be able to accept Gallons of blood everywhere, it’s rather cartoonishly graphic, but no nudity so far so it’s totally fine.

Not long now until Hawkeye lands. I’m working from home on Wednesday, so should be tuned in at the point it goes up.

Been otherwise avoiding chatter and spoilers, as I do like going in blind.

Finished Hit Monkey. Pretty fun romp all the way thru, while still hitting some good dramatic tragic moments. Do recommend.

I’m reminded how much I hate that the Disney+ app puts a ~quarter inch black frame around the picture and refuses to actually use the whole screen.

Huh. On mine its just letterbox, but goes to the sides just fine.

I could've had a whole show about 'little girl who doesn't take anyone's crap' (especially lies-to-children) rather than Rogers: the Musical. That was just cringey and tasteless, even out-of-universe.

Can’t say I’ve noticed a screen size issue on mine?

I found Rogers! amusingly camp. But I can easily see why it’s going to be marmite.

Honestly struggling with the constant tone shifts in these first two episodes of Hawkeye. The camp is too camp and the serious isn't serious enough.

I also can't tell if the 'obvious villain' they're setting is going to be more disappointing if it turns out to be true or false. Though I feel like the runner up will be worse.


The character introduction at the end of episode 2 runs into the MCU problem: I'm supposed to be awed, I guess, but I'm _mostly_ wondering if I'm supposed to know who this is.

You're not. She's a new character.

Anyway, yeah, Hawkeye was... fine, I guess. I don't know what the overall plot is meant to be, and they've already used 1/3rd of the show's runtime. At least one episode will be dedicated to Yelena trying to kill (and eventually becoming friends with) Hawkeye, so that leaves 3 episodes for this show to have a purpose.

I really hope the mother doesn't turn out to be the Big Bad. That would be awful.

Tony Dalton can't not come across as secretly evil.

Can't be any worse than "Here's our new show with 5 minutes of titles and 5 minutes of credits to pad out the runtime!".
