The IMAX premiere of Inhumans got reamed. ZERO positive reviews. This is gonna be a slog. (I didn't see it in theaters, since--again--the TV version will be longer.)

Hurricane Irma has temporarily halted production of Ant-Man & the Wasp and Avengers 4 (Marvel Studios does a lot of filming in Georgia), but they'll be back on track soon. Captain Marvel hasn't begun filming yet, so no delays there.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Just recently watched through The Defenders. Maybe I was being punished for not watching Iron Fist, but early on I thought it was just a big frustrating mess. Like two episodes of people being cryptic and trying to set up Mystery Boxes. Doesn't help that the Hand stuff was my least favorite part of DD S2. I always liked the more grounded parts of the Marvel Netflix stuff.

I was also annoyed at how incredulous everyone is about resurrection when they live in the MCU. A Norse god fought aliens in your town. You have your own superpowers. Maybe don't be so dismissive.

It got more watchable later on, but didn't do anything special. I do appreciate the restraint of cutting back the episode total. Luke Cage, DD S2, and JJ could have each used a little tightening up.

It might be because of the sheer extremity of resurrection--officially, nobody outside of SHIELD & Sif knows what happened to Coulson--but I agree. (But hey, any opportunity to make fun of Danny is welcome! :) )
That happened twice on AoS, too; arbitrary skepticism about specific powers. In season 1, when tracking "the Clairvoyant", Coulson was wishy-washy about psychic powers existing; the Clairvoyant himself turned out to be a fraud, but soon afterwards two other characters appeared with legitimate clairvoyance. Later, when discussing Lash changing forms, Lincoln was all "but no other Inhuman can do that", & I was all "so? you guys all have different powers anyway! maybe shape-shifting is part of his!"
