Get ready for the multi-verse. In a big way. At least that's what my son tells me.

He's the X-Men: First Class version of Quicksilver. The MCU didn't have the rights to "Quicksilver," so we only knew him as Pietro Maximov in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Because the “brother” who showed up was played by Evan Peters, who played Quicksilver in the X-Men movie franchise. The actor who played Pietro in the Marvel movies was a different actor, plus he died in “Age of Ultron”.

That’s also why the Kat Dennings character made a comment about recasting.

Ah, thank you, Orguss and Dwill104. I didn't remember Quicksilver being in the X Men: First Class movie.

Technically, he wasn't. But by refering to that version of the X-Men as the First Class, you understand which X-Men people are talking about.

This is getting REALLY good.

For those who haven't seen it yet, slog through the first 3 episodes. Starting at 4, it starts getting good. 5 is excellent.

It's my new favorite show.

Yes, the Quicksilver crossover was cool.

The first three were a slog for sure. It almost put me off watching the show.

This show is getting less and less accessible to people who’ve only seen the movies, and not just the Avengers movies, you also need to have seen Ant-Man, Thor, Captain Marvel, and X-Men movies to know who some of the characters are. And even if you’ve seen all, or most, of them, much of the things are out of the comics and were never in the movies. So, the House of M storyline, who Agnes might be, the twins, the classic Scarlet Witch and Vision Halloween costumes, etc. are lost on the movie people. To them, it’s just weird.

The different era sitcom format needs to go too, IMHO. At least the laugh track is gone in the latest episode, but there seems no reason for Wanda or whoever’s behind it to constantly jump eras. The sitcom stuff seems like something that’s being done by the producers mostly to appear cool by just being able to do it.

They’re going to have to pick it up to keep my interest.

Surely the sitcom gimmick will be over soon, there's only so much you can do with that.

Just when I thought I was beginning to understand what was happening...

Agreed. There's a lot happening in episode 7, but I don't understand most of it (the subtext, that is). I know it ties in with the larger MCU universe, as previously mentioned.

Edit to add: This article walks through the events in the episode:

Well, they could indicate when they are getting to the final act at least.

But I won't be surprised now if all this will make sense only after the final episode has aired...

This is actually a good thing, IMO.

Instead of having stuff spoon-fed to us, they are doing a slow build. I really like it, even though I have NO IDEA who the new character (in the big reveal last night) really is. I could google it, but I won't.

The MCU is vastly complex, and I imagine only a few of the nerdiest comic book nerds know all the stuff. MCU will tell us. Take Thanos, for instance. In the stinger for whatever movie (Avengers 2012?), they showed him for the first time. I thought he was a bad CGI rendering of Red Skull from Capt America. But, they fleshed his character out in due time, and he was awesome.

Most of the MCU characters were relatively unknown (to me, at least - I read comics as a kid, but they were 99% DC). The MCU did a good job of fleshing them out and explaining their origins. Most of them are not like Batman or Superman, which a great many of us have known for the past 40+ years with all the movies and cartoons. Even Ironman, Capt America, and Thor were a mystery to me until I saw their first MCU movies.

Likewise, with the Wandaverse, I imagine they will show us who the big bad is and we won't have to have 20 yrs of comic book experience under our belts in order to understand it. I don't have to know everything instantly. I can wait.

It is a very unusual method of story-telling, though.

Hamdan - this is turning out great.

Oh, and Elizabeth Olsen looks just like her twin sisters in this episode.
