Premiering March 19th on Disney+
Great NY Times discussion of the plans for this show:
‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Is Marvel’s Latest Double Act
I know exactly what he means, on a much smaller and older scale, lol.
In case you didn't know...
Did not know, thanks! I suppose I can fix this thread with a title change, then start another when the time comes. How about "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier — March 19th" for this one?
Unfortunately, a lot of the forum's rules were created in the era of network television, and have never been revisited in the face of changing technologies (and for that matter changing society!). So they're not really a good fit for the way a lot of television is consumed today...e.g., they don't take full-season threads into account.
This particular rule came into existence because a lot of people were starting threads in anticipation of an episode, and then when the episode actually aired somebody would start up another one. And why have a thread to discuss an episode that hasn't aired yet? At the time, that made sense and cut down on duplicate threads, hence the rule. But now, with season threads, that doesn't really matter as much, and there is a tendency to start discussion of a show long before it starts airing (and then convert the thread to a full-season spoiler thread once the show starts).
It would be nice if there were a serious revamping of the posting rules that takes into account developments in television watching habits over the past couple of decades, but I don't get the impression anybody really wants to take that on...
I get the impression there is at least one.
Not one who has the authority to do it!
Is it really different? It may not be "aired" but it's still not available to watch
There is some difference when it's a streaming series that's dropped all at once. But Disney and Marvel are releasing these traditional TV style, one episode per week, so it theoretically could be covered in separate threads for each episode. In that case the old rule applies many times over.
A single thread for WandaVision worked well though, as long as I remembered to avoid it until I'd seen the latest episode. These episodes come online in the USA at actual midnight nationwide, not midnight Eastern which would let me watch at 9 Pacific. Daddy needs his Z's.
Thread title changed, by a mod who did not know about that rule either, so now I don't feel so bad lol.
I never knew there were officially official threads. But I've been here for < 20 years, so I'm still a noob boob.
This is one of the few superduperhero series I'm actually looking forward to.
As someone who's only six movies into the MCU, any thoughts on whether I'll be able to follow this? I enjoyed WV, even though I hadn't seen any of the MCU at the time.
I have no idea how/where/when this falls into the timeline.
I am using this list as a guide on what to watch before this show.
Captain America: The First Avenger
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Black Panther (2018)
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Avengers: Endgame (2020)
Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
Optional: WandaVision (2021 - Disney+ series)
Found here, but the list above is the 'Spoiler-free' list. The full link goes into details I didn't want to know.
Every Marvel movie to watch before The Falcon and The Winter Soldier releases
It's at the current end of the timeline, as in after Avengers: Endgame, and I'm sure there are purists out there who would tell you to wait so it doesn't spoilerize any movies for you. But if you want to jump in, then try to follow what's going on in the Legends recaps on these two characters. If Legends works for you in whole or in part, you'll be up-to-speed enough. And personally I would just jump in, because I think this is going to be a very fun ride, and you'll still enjoy those previous movies when you get to them.
Thanks for the feedback (@Donbadabon also).
I have no idea what this means.
Each Legends episode is a collection of movie clips organized to show the history of one character. They had more to work with for the Falcon and the Winter Soldier than they did for Wanda and Vision, and I think the result is more helpful. See also my reply from the WandaVision thread:
the problem with the "Legends" recap is it's a recap of all the MCU movies.
If you haven't seen many of them, it may not mean a whole lot
Cool! I'll check it out.
