I haven't bought any MCU physical Blu-rays in anticipation of the inevitable Infinity Saga collection with all 22 movies including Endgame in a nice collectible package. Anyone else doing the same?

There was that awesome Tesseract briefcase for Phase 1. Did they do anything for Phase 2?

Oh man, I just realized that they could make a giant Infinity Gauntlet to hold the movies. *drool*

Then you may not be buying any MCU movies. Physical media is dying off and there's literally only ONE disc duplication facility left in North America. That's why stuff like the 4K 2001 was delayed and other releases get REALLY hard to find after the initial print runs.

With only one facility left to produce discs for every single release, a big 22 movie boxed set may be too much to wish for.

"I'm waiting for the 22 movie boxed set" is going to be the new "I'm waiting for the Kill Bill Whole Bloody Affair DVD"

My quick google brought up this:

I didn't know that but do you really think Marvel wouldn't take the time to do a limited edition collectible set? Even if they were to break it up into 3 sets that needed to be ordered separately?

Again, how would they produce it? The single disc duplication facility in North America is in Mexico and they're operating at full capacity as they're the only place where every single new DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K is produced. Disney coming in and saying "We need to produce a million 22-movie boxed sets" would practically shut down all other disc releases.

So do you think they will just do a Phase 3 only set and call it a day?

link here. They're also reporting that Jolie is playing the rumored lead of Sersi rather than a supporting character, which surprises me tbh
Sorry, I forgot the link. I was waiting for a THR tweet heh. I'm glad Angelina is probably gonna be Sersi. Kumail will hopefully also be one of the Eternals. Maybe Makkari? I'm so up for a superfast runner.

Eternals definitely my most anticipated MCU film with GotG3.

It's going to be crazy when Marvel Studios officially announces Black Widow and The Eternals to the public and then the wait time from there will be (relatively) short.

After waiting about what, half a decade for Captain Marvel and both Infinity War films, getting official announcements and then only having to wait a year for the films (and shorter for the first trailer) is going to feel good.

I'm thinking we will get that Avengers HQ clip they've been showing off at the shareholder meeting, at cinemacon and at Disney lot, sometime next week. There'll be MCU actors on Good Morning America all week, starting with the Original Six on Monday. 🤔

I don't think this is likely by any means, but it's an interesting line of speculation nonetheless. I also don't think it's impossible that Marvel could fast-track a Deadpool MCU movie to keep Reynolds happy, at least for 2021.

The THR article from yesterday about Kumail Nanjiani being in Eternals said that Eternals is “one of two features that Marvel is prepping to shoot this year.” Shang-Chi’s script isn’t even done I don’t think. They don’t have anything else in development that’s advanced enough to begin shooting for a 2020 release and they didn’t get Gunn back fast enough to put GoTG 3 back in a 2020 slot so yeah...it’s pretty unlikely. It’s just going to be BW and Eternals.

I think some wires have been crossed here and it might actually be some stuff for BW or something.

Would anyone like to take the Endgame OT from me? I'm having some issues and I can't do it.

Has there been any confirmation as to whether Spider-Man Far From Home is considered the last film in Phase 3 (akin to Ant-Man in Phase 2), or whether its the first in the next line up?

It's supposed to be post Phase 3/Phase 4.
Ah cool, thanks.

Why would a spiderman movie be the end of a phase?
Why would an Ant-Man movie be at the end of a phase either? To me, the distinction between one or the other kinda offers a hint as to how it ties into the overarching series narrative. Ant-Man in retrospect allowed phase 2 to end with a more light hearted palate cleanser, and also enabled Phase 3 to start with Civil War, which felt more appropriate as an opener is it laid a lot of ground work for phase 3, such as the accords, Tony and Caps relationship etc.

If Spider-Man were part of phase 3, I’d expect they felt it in some way will act as a thematic epilogue to the Inifinty Saga, rather than the opening of a new part of the narrative. Being the opener of the post phase 3 set of films is a lot more interesting to me, as I expect they will introduce a lot of themes and elements that will be picked up on going forward.

I wish Doctor Strange was still on Netflix. I have a crazy urge to rewatch it.

I went through GoTG 1 + 2 as well as Infinity War again. I love the cosmic marvel stuff. The worlds they create are gorgeous.

I'd like to imagine that the franchise single handedly responsible for keeping the casette tape industry alive will also work hard to keep the blu ray/physical movie release industry alive :P

The last mystery character is your pediatrician telling you that you need to lose weight after eating so many happy meals, as you try to collect them all.

Far From Home is part of the next phase, I think.

The language about it is similar to Ant-Man’s, admittedly, where Feige and co. dubbed it the epilogue of Phase 2.

All we really know about Far From Home is that it begins mere moments after Endgame and is supposed to set the tone for a post Endgame MCU.

Personally, I think it’s part of the next phase, just because it only really makes sense to end the Infinity Saga with Endgame’s conclusion. At least Ant-Man had the angle that it was setting up a minor character to appear in Civil War a few months later (wow, we really didn’t have to wait long for Scott to appear with the team. It feels like we had to wait two years for that payoff, but it wasn’t even one).
