    I just got home from seeing Thor: The Dark World. It was okay; nothing to get excited about. If you are on the fence, my recommendation is to Netflix it. I'm not convinced it was worth the ticket price in the theater.

I really was hoping the Jessica Jones series would introduce Son of Satan with the idea of spinning him off in his own horror series that could have involved Satana, Devil Slayer, Gargoyle and the like. As is, if Morbius is a hit, I'm hoping it might eventually lead to a team up film with him, Blade, one of the Ghost Riders, and Son of Satan/Satana.
    They could do a version of midnight sons which included like all of those people. though I would keep it small Blade Morbius, Maybe Hellstrom, or Ghost Rider.

    Yea, seems to be MCU adjacent. It's a Sony movie, so it's loosely connected to the Spider-Man movies. Kind of like Venom was. Though this one seems even more connected.

    Anyway, it looks pretty cool. I'll be excited to see it.

    Better that than JJ Abrams's lens flares.

    When I heard this adaption was going to be a thing I literally heard HBguy in the back of my mind shouting "WE HAVE TO STOP THEM! WE HAVE TO STOP THEM!"

    No joke, I started watching Hbomb's Sherlock video right after making that last comment. It's still running in another tab, as I write this.

    I hope Hbomb does a video about Moffat's Dracula show. I'd love to see his deconstruction of it.

    Ah! Cool! Well, you'll have to let us know how the viewing goes...

    That'd be interesting. Hopefully they'll revisit these characters at some point. Though I have a bad feeling they won't. Hopefully I'm wrong though...I loved those new characters (for the most part).

    Heard they might be doing that. As long as they plan out some stories, then it should be good.

    Movies and shows set in the Old Republic era could be interesting, but to be perfectly frank I don't think I trust Disney with movies anymore. It sounds like they'll just keep producing massive spectacles with massive budgets but nothing particularly interesting to say. TLJ was a fluke in this regard that they're not likely to repeat. Besides, as much as I liked Rey's story with Luke, the other half of the film played it very safe - people whine a lot about it, but at the end of the day it discarded anything truly new for a repeat of the "scrappy rebels against the empire" storyline.

    Shows are another story. I think Star Wars generally does best when it can step away from trying to figure out how to one-up the last big threat to the galaxy and scales down. Like in Rogue One, Rebels or (so I've heard) the Mandalorian.

    Even if you don't find it offputting early on it goes amazingly off the rails in part 3, like it's difficult to describe the sheer trainwreck.
