Man, I always wanted it to be Anna Kendrick. But I can't be mad with that casting at all.

To be fair, I would watch Milana Vayntrub read Chilton maintenance guides, so having her play Squirrel Girl is just very awesome icing.

Never read any New Warriors. Who were the old warriors? What happened to them? Did they fall and break their hip? Are they all at the silver diner for th blue late special at 4:30? Moved to St. Pete? Yelling at clouds? Overdosing on viagra and lemon parties? And who the hell are these young punks and what are they doing on my lawn?!?!

Definately Yay. More work for my Brother, and they have a new show runner, so maybe they'll do a better job on the characters and story telling parts.

I also binged it Friday and Saturday. I liked it a lot. Loved the interactions between the characters - particularly Jessica's jabs at Matt's look "Nice ears" and everyone's jabs at Iron Fist "A thundering dumbass". The fight scenes near the end of the show started to get a bit repetitive but whatever. The character stuff was still very enjoyable. I think they positioned the characters very well for the future seasons of their solo shows. I'm particularly looking forward to Daredevil: Season 3.

I thought it was...okay, I guess. The villain was terrible though. And if that's all they were building to I don't understand why they even bothered. There should have just been more crossover between the shows and this should have been a two hour movie.

Agreed. I think The Hand looked more incompetent in this than we've ever seen them. In Daredevil and Iron Fist, they'd been portrayed as damn near omnipresent, an organization that had operatives in every organization. But with their master stroke in play and all their leaders on the scene, they bring like...20-30 dudes.

I'll disagree on the villains a bit. I thought Sigourney Weaver was absolutely captivating

To be clear, I thought she was a fantastic actor. But her character did almost nothing. I loved the scene in the Chinese restaurant, but they built her up so much and then...nothing. In retrospect she comes off as completely toothless.
