  1. 0:37 most vomit inducing line ever put on television…instead of taking characters from mythologies and using them as if you where the originator and then undermine them, how about being a bit more original?

  2. I’m sorry, but, regarding #1, with the Marvel MCU, you really don’t need to be up-to-date on any of the side franchises. You can watch all of the Thor movies without ever seeing an Iron Man movie, you can understand all the Guardians of the Galaxy movies without having seen Steven Strange. You can follow all the Avengers movies without having seen any of the other MCU movies. They might reference something that happened in one of the non-Avengers movies, but rarely is it in such a way that you’ll be lost or confused for even a moment.

  3. It kinda would be cool to have a La La Land cinematic universe and have Blade Runner 2049 be considered a direct sequel to it.

  4. Well Harry Potter technically counts as a cinematic universe and if you believe in the Pixar theory, then so does Pixar. Both of those cans out before iron man. So how are these guys gonna say Marvel made the concept of a Cinematic Universe?
