This is the fatal flaw of introducing real dates into a serial set over many years.Benedict wrote:Ok, the timelines are confusing me
BW born 1984, Budapest takes place before Iron Man 2 (2011) as the “mission” was effectively the condition of her defection to shield.
If it was 2010 for example, how did 11 year Antonia become ‘that’ actress in 2016? That’s not a 6 year difference, so when did Budapest take place? A further 5 years before? When BW was 21?
It’s seems like they really wanted to use Antonia’s actress, and just shoehorned her in somewhere. Or alternatively bank on Taskmaster’s name and Antonia was always going to feature in the move as chief henchperson.
I had details spoiled by the Io9 social media intern deciding to post the character reveal on Monday. Apparently spoilers “improve the experience due to the expectation”, I’ve never heard a spoiler that didn’t taint my experience.
Anyway, I really enjoyed whenever ‘the family’ were on screen together, great chemistry between the cast.
Ray Winstone was…a choice, he could barely suppress his accent at times. One of the lesser interesting villains in the MCU for me.
I think Civil War was the first MCU to introduce a real date (in the past). Since then they have doubled down with setting Captain Marvel in the 90s and all the past events in Endgame.
