Quote from: letsgobrian on November 25, 2021, 08:21:37 AMThe moment we saw the mum in modern day I assumed she was a super villain. I can't tell if the show is trying to pull a bait and switch with Swordsman, and we're going to be expected to be shocked when it's revealed mum was pulling the strings.

He's older than I thought, at 50, but I assumed the studios made sure the actors kept match fit for these things. The time is clearly right for him to pass the torch and Steinfeld seems like a good candidate.

That said (and considering the running time) I thought the first two episodes flew by. I've not read any of the Maths Fractions run of the comic (because reading is for nerds), but I'm aware it's supposed to be good, so hopefully the show will follow suit.

Quote from: bakabaka on November 25, 2021, 09:33:57 PMHawkeye's younger replacement-to-be is horribly written in this. The poor little rich girl aspect is oddly unfocussed, while her youth, inexperience and naïvité are hugely overplayed, presumably so that her character arc will work. It's all so clunky and by the numbers.But having gone in with low expectations, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Not the bell/clocktower scene or the musical or Hawkeye's kids but, because the fight scenes were supposed to be basic and not superheroic, they felt much more satisfying than usual with no ropework visible. Unlike in Shang Chi, where the second half looked like some kind of weird aerial ballet that destroyed any credibility.Oh, and kudos to mjwilson for calling it back in September on the previous page(#8).
