Actress Brie Larson has been confirmed to play Captain Marvel!  The news came at the Marvel Cinematic Universe panel at SDCC last night, and Brie Larson received a standing ovation following the announcement.

That is excellent news.  I love her character and can't wait to see what Marvel cooks up for a solo story (or what other heroes get included, since that's become the norm lately).

Well, working a Hindu deity into the show is bound to cause some controversy.

It's funny to maintain the suspense they can't show 80% of the cast. So Morgan, Carol and Tara, whom I'd forgotten about. And Deanna's remaining son.

Wondering what the price will be on this thing...that is an insane amount of interior detailing. Very well done, I commend them.

Not much news out of SDCC on these toys, but I did hear they are considering either King's Landing or Mereen for the next themed wave. I think Mereen would be a lot cooler...dragons, sons of the Harpy, etc.

I hope they aren't disappointed by the first wave sales. There seems to be almost no distribution on this line whatsoever outside of a handful of Gamestops and specialty shops.

Yeah, nice that it is continuing in some form for those that are interested. But I think it bodes ill for people like me that were really into what Super7 was doing before, namely ReAction figures. MOTU was literally all they wanted to talk about in San Diego.

And man, that He-man cartoon they cooked up was just painful.

Yeah I hope that is a fan trailer, hehe.  That space ship scene looked like it was out of Wing Commander.  :-X

Anyone see Beyond? I'm on the fence and my roommate says it's alright but isn't worth seeing.

I thought the trailer was underwhelming, but I really enjoyed the movie.  I'm also not a Star Trek purist and I wasn't ever that into it growing up, but it felt more like an episode on a huge scale and I thought it was well done and enjoyable.

I'm all about the new show.

Recognizing that the Discovery was the McQuarrie Enterprise while watching the teaser was about the most geek moment I've had in a long time. I love the ship and also think there is some Klingonish elements to it. Another clue is the music in the teaser which is reminiscent of past Klingon cues. That's one reason I think the show could take place in the post TNG era. The registry would indicate otherwise but I don't know I would put much stock in that, as the registries during the TNG era were not always simpatico with what was understood. Another example is Star Trek Beyond. MILD SPOILERS - The USS Franklin is apparently a ship that predates Archer's Enterprise, the NX-01. The Franklin is stated as being the first Warp 4 ship; the Enterprise was the first warp 5 ship, yet the Franklin's registry is NX-324. What is very likely with the Franklin given the circumstantial evidence in the movie is that she was refit and/or reclassed at some point in her service life and given an incongruous registry.

The Discovery registry is an apparent nod to the space shuttle Discovery's registry - OV-103 - and that may be all there is to it. That said there were some rumors at one point that the show was taking place in The Undiscovered Country timeframe and maybe there's something to that. Myself I'd prefer going forward, but I'm up for whatever this show has got.
