‘Vision Quest’: Marvel developing Vision spinoff at Disney+ with Paul Bettany set to return -- SyFy Wire

Deadline reports the studio is developing a new potential series codenamed Vision Quest, which will star Paul Bettany returning to the role of Vision. The show will reportedly follow Vision as he attempts to “regain his memory and humanity.” This would focus on the White Vision character who ended the first season of WandaVision on the loose in the world after regaining enough of his memories following a face-off with Wanda’s version of Vision (yeah, it’s a bit confusing).

Oh sure, have the white dude they replaced the colored dude with going on a Vision quest. So much cultural appropriation!

Mrs. GG and I finally watched Werewolf By Night, as it seemed appropriate for Halloween… much better than we were expecting. An excellent treat. 🐺

I hope we get more She-Hulk.

And if we do & it's not your thing? Just don't watch it.

Of course I want more WWbN, Moon Knight, etc etc etc.

I haven't watched She-Hulk but the ending sounds like a brilliant attempt at meta-commentary that was put at the end of the wrong show.

Like, if you want to tear down and poke fun at the conventions of a genre, you kind of have to make a movie in that genre. You know. Like how Deadpool poked fun at superhero movies by being a superhero movie.

Somehow a slice-of-lifey courtroom drama series feels like the wrong context show for an attempt at pointing out how formulaic the MCU has become. You know. Because it seems like they weren't even using the formula or even attempting to subvert it for most of the run. THey just made a show in a different genre and then tried to end it with a 'take that' at an entirely different genre that had nothing to do with the show the take that was actually in. Like how when South Park poked fun at Simpsons and Family Guy it worked because South Park is the same kind of show as Simpsons and Family Guy.

The slice of life courtroom drama stuff gets a back seat for the most part. Which is kind of the point. Jennifer insists the show is a slice of life court drama show. But She-Hulk stuff keeps dragging her back into a MCU plot. And that culminates in the end when it becomes so outrageously MCU that she puts the breaks on the whole thing and says "None of this even makes sense." Which is the story for her character. She wants her old life. But she can't have it anymore. It's not really GONE. But it now also includes this other She-Hulk aspect and she needs to come to terms with it.

Nailed it again. Especially the part of being on the list of people seen as internet manbabies for not liking the show lol, nothing like handwaving legitimate problems with the series by claiming it as invalid due to whatever "ism" people want to use nowadays.

And the people who made the show insisted it was a legal comedy.

It wasn't any of these things.

The bigger problem is that they try and be meta about how the ending makes no sense, but then proceeds to fast-forward it and auto-resolve the conflict and thereby just proves the critics right as Jenn ultimately can't do or change it to be any better despite her direct intervention. Just saying that you've had rushed or predictable endings in previous shows doesn't absolve your show of that if you don't actually do a proper ending. Being self-aware about this kind of writing is even worse than just playing it straight in this instance because you're actively acknowledging that you know there's too many plot threads to resolve in the time that's left and that instead they just give up and pull a GoT S8, where they just kill the Night King anticlimatically so the plot can move forward to King's Landing.

I mean Daredevil literally falls out of the sky like he just loaded into the level during the final part.

Oof, don't even mention Daredevil, I was watching old clips of the Netflix series and it's sad to see how badly the script treats him as not much else besides Jenn's new boytoy. Especially since they've established that this version of Matt Murdock is completely different from the one we've seen from the Netflix series (it was a hail mary that some of that would have carried over, but still sad to hear). He's no longer the man without fear, just the man who can hear (Jenn's heartbeats)

Skarr's introduction is incredibly hamfisted and unnecessary too, not to mention I don't know why they didn't go for the long hair look he has in the comics? He looks like he came out of washing the dishes in a restaurant.

He looks like his dad tried to make him look presentable for grown up stuff, which is kind of the point.

I laughed so hard when he was introduced.

Because I have a friend who'd spent the entirety of She-Hulks release complaining ever more vehemently that nothing was going on, that it wasn't moving the overall MCU plot forward, etc etc etc.

Well, I'd say introducing Hulks son definitely moves the plot forward somehow....

I pointed this out to him.
He ranted more.
I laughed harder.

He also fails to appreciate all the little background details that give a glimpse into the overall MCU world this show gives.

Has the MCU addressed the giant person sticking out the ocean yet?

It's been acknowledged as a thing that happened but not been addressed directly. Not that I can think of any way that people would be addressing it directly. The news would freak out (which they did in the background) and then everyone would be like... wtf... and then scientists would go out there and perform tests and be like... "It's made of rock. It's just a big rock man."...

What would be more concerning would have been the even bigger red rock man that instantly showed up leering over the planet. Yelling at some people nobody knows about, and then disappearing. Again, I don't know what anyone would actually DO about it. But it would be on peoples radar as a thing that now can happen I guess.

One of two background Easter eggs in She Hulk. One referencing the giant stone person sticking out of the ocean, and another mentioning a dude with metal claws getting into a bar fight.

Wasn't there also an easter egg with it being a story in a tabloid?

Could have been a tabloid-style website and not an actual print version.
