I dunno, there is a lot of nonsense going on right now. I’m going to have to start some kind of decent pop culture review site because everything is clickbait nonsense or drivel from morons or both. Everybody decent has moved on or become a corporate shill, or, worse, is lorded over by gatekeeping eeyores with self-esteem issues and who needs that? Admins and mods without an OUNCE of experience with community management.
So, I had a bit of a moment of cosmic ennui when, finally, John Krasinski showed up as Reed. Sure, he looks a little haggard. His FF uniform is straight out of the costume designer Phoning It In playbook, with a standard Marvel-issue leather jacket and pants. What? The world’s smartest man doesn’t dress like that. Maybe his wife has an eye for fashion, but this is Reed fucking RICHARDS. I need a more blue collar Reed with less leather. The FF is a super science family. There should be last night’s dishes in the sink except Reed made some robots to deal with that.
Feige is a genius. This whole part of STRANGE 2 was a little sloppy. I mean, hilarious they got everybody to come in, but… cartoon Prof. X, down to the theme song? A giant middle finger to Ike about killing Black Bolt instantly? I mean, yes, thanks for Captain Carter but the world’s smartest man getting faked out instantly?
But then hero of the republic Mark Espinosa says, hey, I can’t stop laughing over the fact that Marvel gave us the Reed we’ve always wanted and then killed him in two seconds. And then I remember again that Feige is a genius as soon as Steve Uchrin, star of stage and screen, reminds us that Feige is ten moves ahead of everybody, and now it looks like when Cerebus kissed the baby after four issues and then threw it over the side. You can get what you want and still not like it. So Feige has bulletproofed the FF against criticism. You wanted Jim from THE OFFICE? Here he is, don’t say we don’t give you what you want.
HOPEFULLY YOU DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH TOM CRUISE BEING REED IN THE MCU FF MOVIE HA HA FAKED YOU ALL OUT
