I have no idea what he referring to. It’s funny.

Sony remastered Spider-Man and changed the character model from the stock one X-years ago to one that looks an awfully lot like Tom Holland.

It’s actually Jamie Foxx returning as Electro… and we’re not sure if it’s the same one or a new one.

Please tell me that this didn’t actually happen. . .

It did. Sony said they’re movies take.place in the MCU but won’t affect the MCU unless Feige produces the movie.

I think Scrysis was talking about the actual dinner conversation.

Sorry for nitpicking,: But he even spelled it out for you, it’s Thai food not Chinese. (-‸ლ)

Except many asian restaurants identify as Chinese despite offering Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes. My local one “China Beijing” does amazing Pad Thai and Vietnamese spring rolls.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to claim Chinese has become the Band-Aid or Kleenex of asian cuisine.

I dont know where you’re from, but where i live we call Take out Thai food, Thai. We call veitnamese food, Pho, and korean food korean. Because they are distinct from each other.

Ehh, I could go either way on this debate. Our nearest Chinese place has items on the menu from Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisines. The local sushi joint? Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese dishes. Our favorite Thai place? Well, it’s actually just Thai. They’re pretty on point. My preferred Korean takeout? It has Korean, plus one or two items of Chinese and Japanese origin. Our favorite Vietnamese place? Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai dishes. Point being, lots of people get “Chinese” without regard for—or oftentimes even an awareness of—where the cuisine originated. I’m not saying that’s a good thing.… Read more »

Where I live, we also have restaurants that brand themselves as “Asian fusion.” It’s not unusual to see Pad Thai offered on the menu along with Beef Bulgogi, Schezuan Chicken, and Pho.

I’ve literally never heard of this before, so I’m extremely interesting in knowing what region you’re from.

Eldest Gruff

It’s probably less to do with region, and more to do with size of the city/town and how diverse the population is. In my small Wisconsin hometown, the Chinese restaurant also had Thai and Japanese, just because there was no other competition, the locals just called it all “Chinese” anyways, and it attracted out-of-towners that were dying for good sushi.

Making the best seemingly innocent yet inappropriate comments at the worst time is a rare skill, but a truly wonderful thing to behold. If you can give the audience whiplash at a funeral but still not piss anyone off, you’ve got talent.

I love the look on her face. This “listening although I am not really sure what you are talking about because I love you” juuust till the last picture… vivid imagination can be a curse sometimes.

I am not a native english speaker so I’m not sure :

Is it implied that *someone* actually put Nutsack in the food ?

Nope; only that, at the moment she took a bite, he described it in an extremely disgusting and revolting way, which she then imagined.

when you have good imagination and listen very disturbing scene about food while you eat is certainly nasty thing to happen

Did they plan it carefully thou? Hulk didn’t work out so well so the Norton movie is just kinda in the MCU. Outside of Cpt. America and Avengers they didn’t really reference it outside of a little Name- / eventdrop. They added ultron a few month before Antman and therefore had stark invent ultron. they did Civil war without the X-Men and even spiderman was just written in afterwards as they got the rights to it and he didn’t have any major part in it. Was the end product good and entertaining? Were the last 2 avengers movie a worthy… Read more »

Somehow, and I can’t put my finger on exactly why, but SOMEHOW . . . I get the distinct impression you’re not terribly fond of the Sonyverse Marvel movies. 😛

“Ugh, god Tim, that’s disgusting, do you have to talk that way during our date night, now all I can think of is crusty balls when I look at my food” isn’t quite the rimshot punchline you’d want to end a strip.

Or “in the jar” and there’s a jar of money for everytime he does this.

“It’s a good thing you’re cute”

“You’d think I’d be used to this by now”

Or you can just play the game or watch the movie and not have to combine or compare them to each other, Just enjoy or not enjoy.

The MCU doesn’t really harmonize. There were cracks before, but things have just been blown open since Endgame. The way that movie ends with everything “back to normal” is just insulting to the theme of dealing with trauma that the movie started out with. Far From Home just brushes the whole thing off as a blip, that didn’t having any lasting effects on anyone’s psyche. Also with Far From Home, it turns out that Iron Man built a fleet of death drones that can kill anyone in the world at a single command; it totally flies in the face of… Read more »

I am a bit wary of Sony deciding to exploit this…I liked Toby’s but disliked Garfield’s (too mean) versions, but at the same time the potential of a live action Spider-verse is reeeeally cool. Seeing these guys come back and do their Spider men in a whole crazy multiverse mess up is a dream come true. Oh and in reference to someone above, who said they did not deal with the blip and its effects enough in Far from Home…I think it would take a lot of movies to really explore it properly, and there is the chance to do… Read more »
