Should AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Have Included a Certain Reunion?

Should AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Have Included a Certain Reunion?

Infinity War gave us a lots of great new pairings, but originally it also included a meeting between two old friends. On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we discussed if Marvel was right to delay Steve Rogers and Tony Stark’s reunion, along with the latest from Solo: A Star Wars Story, and whether an unlikely source just leaked a bunch of new video games.

Joining host Jessica Chobot today was editor Amy Ratcliffe, social media director Michelle Buchman, and producer Derek Johnson. They assembled to talk about some things we didn’t see in Infinity War, including a brief scene with Iron Man and Captain America that was initially in the script. Do we wish it was included, or was Marvel right to hold it back for Avengers 4? Also, Falcon was originally supposed to end up on Titan instead of Spider-Man. How different would the ending have been if they hadn’t made that change? And are you surprised a movie of this size let Dave Bautista improv his amazing “Why is Gamora?” line?

From one major Disney franchise to another, we got a new, historic scene from Solo: A Star Wars Story, when Han met Lando for the first time. What do we think? Does it have us more excited for the movie? Is Lucasfilm sharing too much from the film at this point? Was Alden Ehrenreich put in an impossible situation? And will the look and feel of the movie be enough to make it work even if the plot and performances don’t?

Finally, the website for Walmart in Canada might have leaked the announcement for a whole bunch of new video games, including for Borderlands 3, Gears of War 5, an untitled Assassin’s Creed, as well as a certain remake we’ve been waiting on. Is this totally bogus, or did they just spoil E3? If they are real, are we surprised by any of these titles? Which one are we most excited for? And will this truly be the year we finally get the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII remake?

Remember Nerdist News Talks Back airs live every Monday through Thursday on our YouTube and Alpha channels at 1PM PT, and we end the week in entertainment with Nerdist News What the Fridays at 1PM PT, only at Alpha.
