    There are, but sure, let’s go with that.

    So does that mean that the other series will be 40-60 mins lenght? Doubt it… I was hoping Marvel would do it differently, but it doesn’t seem so… and I mean, why should they? They clearly got away with it with the Madalorian for two movies… I mean seasons… u_u

    John Reilly Dies: Veteran Actor For ‘General Hospital’ And Other Soaps Was 84

    Relevant because he was also the voice of Hawkeye on the 90’s Iron Man animated series.

    Sounds good but runs the risk of a story based around Doom hacking into the Four’s social media to discredit them and boost his own follower numbers.

    And in the end, Reed outsmarts him and Doom is deplatformed.

    DOOM insists that cancel culture has gone too far!

    Yeesh… apparently Wandavision is gonna be the same-ish format as the Mandalorian, so presumably 8 short episodes (20-30 mins each)?

    That’s disapointing.

    Mandalorian’s episodes were very variable in length though, so who knows?

    I don’t care what length the individual episodes are as long as they’re good.

    (And by that I’m meaning I’m hoping for better-than-Mandalorian. Which was okay, but nothing to write home about.)

  • #49906

    The first three episodes at least, are apparently just note-perfect homages to the golden age (and I guess silver and bronze age) of domestic sitcoms, with only very minor deviations, so my biggest hope is that there isn’t too much filler, and that the writing is good. From what I’ve seen of the Mando, that isn’t necessarily the case.

  • #49907

    Well, it’s an entirely different team from Mando, isn’t it. Not sure who the writers are (the episodes’ writing credits aren’t out yet), but it’s interesting that the whole of the first season is apparently directed by the same director, and he’s got a pretty strong background – he directed episodes of, amongst other stuff, Fargo and Game of Thrones and interestingly a whole lot of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. So he should have the sitcom thing down, too, which is encouraging.

    Kevin Feige Confirms ‘Deadpool 3’ Is an MCU Movie; Teases R-Rating and When It’s Filming

    I felt like the Deadpool schtick got worn out pretty fast in the second movie, but I wonder whether the MCU might give it the material it needs to feel fresh again. A roast of the entire franchise might be quite fun.

    Yeah, but having seen two series of Mando, I think I’m seeing the rationale for it.

    Namely, people are used to movie-level presentation for these characters.  How do you do that on a TV budget? Shorter eps.

  • #50007

    Yeah but that’s the disappointing thing… they don’t really need to stick to a TV budget… it’s fuckin Marvel, they could literally burn money at this point, so they’re just being stingy.

    Or you know, just make a movie… which is what they’re basically doing anyways, they’re just spreading it thin through 8 weeks to get more subscription cash… does it make sense? yes… is it nevertheless disapointing? very much so.

    Feige says the first three are all about 30 mins, but it starts to vary after that.

    Kevin Feige talks Disney+ episode length:

    “Well, we’re looking a little differently. We’re looking at it as developing them as either six hour-episodes, or nine or 10 half-hour episodes,” said Feige. “So, for instance, WandaVision started that way and Falcon and the Winter Soldier as 30 minutes, but because it’s streaming, it’s Disney+, and the rules have blurred over the years, yes. Some can be 23 minutes. Some can be much longer than that. But She-Hulk, for instance, is being developed as 10 30-minute episodes. Some will be longer and some will be shorter. Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier is being developed as six 40-50-minute episodes.”

    Moon Knight will also fall into the 6 x 40-50 minute format.

  • #50064

    I mean, I don’t mind the variable lenght, it’s a good idea to adjust your runtime according to your script instead than to a hard lenght format… the problem is 20 mins is rather short for that type of show. It kinda worked with the mandalorian ’cause that show is just filler sprinkled with fan service, but unless they wanna do something as trite as that show, I don’t know if it’s gonna work all that well.

    We’ll see I guess… :unsure:

  • #50082

    Since it is not standard episodic television that needs to fit into a specific time-slot in increments of 30 minutes (minus time for commercials and promos), the length of each episode, as Jon notes, should be based on the needs of that particular story. I prefer not knowing the length in advance, since such knowledge acts as a sort of spoiler (if the “killer” is caught with 15 minutes left, we know he’s not the real killer — which is the format of every episode of Law&Order ever made). Unless Disney is planning to repackage these shows for syndication down the road, there is no need to adhere to a strict length of time per episode.

    I assume it’s like Maslany on She-Hulk or Steinfeld on Hawkeye where they contractually can’t confirm anything.

    I hope it’s not true though, I’m perfectly fine with his ending.

    Ugh, so they’re really gonna do that shit, huh? Bummer… I’d really prefer if they made THE FALCON a more prominent/important character, instead of giving him a white man’s left overs… specially since he’s getting a pretty sweet costume update. Like, you want him to have the shield? Fine give him the fuckin shield… just let him be the Falcon, not second-hand diveristy mandated Cap… u_u

    Wait what? I hadn’t even heard about Isaac!

    Very cool news both anyway.

    …who are Moon Knight’s villains anyway?

    It is unclear who Hawke would play, but Moon Knight’s archnemesis is a villain named Bushman, a fellow mercenary who turned on the hero when Egyptian gold came into the picture.

    Uh, okay, I doubt they’ll be using a villain called “Bushman”.

    Oh, I am sure it won’t be. Moon Knight has always been his own greatest enemy, so it doesn’t really matter all that much who they use.

    After WandaVision’s slightly offbeat concept, it occurs to me that the Lemire run on Moon Knight would be a great basis to play around with different TV show genres within the series. That could be fun.
