The sound effect very end?

No clue! A video I saw said it was like Tony Stark building the Iron Man, but I don’t know what that would imply.

My half assed crazy theory is it’s Gamora (the one Thanos sacrificed) trapped in the soul stone, in non-corporeal form, and the plot of GOTG Vol. 3 is Quill’s quest to find it, and get her reunited with her 2014 body, so she will remember him again.

Remembering Peter Mayhew
Time

I remember the tabloid press trying to paint a picture of Mayhew and other masked actors in the original film somehow getting screwed over by not getting a chunk of the movie’s success, but Peter simply went back to his day job working at a hospital when production was over. He had only done Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger prior to Star Wars. I don’t think he ever said a bad word about Star Wars or anyone associated with it.

Did that bigfoot movie that he was supposed to be doing, (and was a running gag thread on here for a while) ever get made?

Avengers Endgame. A worthy epic finale to a decade of great superhero movies. Five out of five Rocket Raccoons.

Can anybody can tell me what small bit I missed at the end because my bladder was imploding?

If you saw the uh… “bench scene” then you saw everything.

No, what I missed was most of the…

Thor talking with one of his Asgardian pals on a beach? I got back just as Cap wasn’t coming back from his time jaunt.

The movie could really have used an intermission. I didn’t even buy a soda!

Oh right,

Thor passed the leader mantle to Valkyrie and decided to just be himself. Then he took off with Quill for new adventures. He may or may not still be an overweight alcoholic.

Thanks!

I would miss a GOTG scene. I wonder if Quill looked up his family before leaving Earth? His grandfather was still alive in GOTG Voi. 2. And what was the tapping/pinging sound heard over the Marvel logo at the end???

General Star Wars Random Thoughts Thread
Time

I haven’t been able to find a video of it online, but there’s a promo airing on Turner Classic Movies for the upcoming TCM/Bonhams movie memorabilia auction featuring an original ESB Darth Vader costume. The actor who wore the suit for promotional appearances back in the day tells a great story about the one and only time he ever broke character in costume. 😃

And from what I understood they only had concept art for Grievous to go off of, so they had to invent his personality on their own.

But to be fair, I understand why George wanted to make this General character a mustache-twirling villain that runs away and gets beat over and over. It fits into that villain archetype of old serials. I don’t think people would have been as disappointed if Grievous had just been set up that way in the micro-series as well.

Growing up I always rationalized the characterization difference as Grievous being pretty powerful right after his transformation, but slowly became weaker as his remaining organics struggled to exist within his cyborg body.

Only the serials I’ve seen have better villains. Grevious doesn’t hold a candle to Ming the Merciless!

Didn’t the micro series air slightly ahead of Episode III? Coming off of that impression of Grevious into the movie version would be a letdown.

Yes, the micro-series aired from 2003 to 2005, ending not long before Revenge of the Sith was released. The micro-series was the very first appearance Grievous made too.

Thanks for an actual answer. 😃
