I feel like they need to keep building their roster to fight against Thanos. At the climax of Avengers 3 there will be one of those 'we need everybody' calls from Cap and then the Netflix Defenders appear and Mockingbird and the rest of the SHIELD show and any other small help that may not have been asked to join… » 8/29/14 6:36am Friday 6:36am

Really surprised to find that the John Carter stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs was left off! This precedes both Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, and is a wonderful piece of science fiction that I'm sure shaped the rest of the pulp and worldbuilding that came after. » 7/25/14 5:56pm 7/25/14 5:56pm

Right now I'm binge-reading Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning's 2008 Guardians of the Galaxy comic series. I'm enjoying the current and fun Brian Michael Bendis GotG title, but die-hard fans have nothing but praise for DnA's title a few years back.

I'd argue throwing in Episode 8, The Well, too. I guess it's not "must watch" in terms of plot, but it ties in with Thor 2 and was arguably the best episode of the first half of the season, so it shows that the episodes aren't all sub-par. Plus it's co-written by Thor 2 co-scribe and excellent Marvel comics writer… » 5/06/14 9:24pm 5/06/14 9:24pm

While they can certainly get away with an immediate recasting (Rhodey, Banner), and in-universe reason works better (Cap's theoretical replacement), but I think a great idea would be to have a hero or two be absent from one of the big films as a kind of "gap" for the transition. By Avengers 3 they'll have a huge… » 5/02/14 5:44pm 5/02/14 5:44pm
