At this point in time, with rare exception, I’m pretty against content creators speaking about their projects. By that I mean, I hate creators revealing lore or explaining content after the fact or even AS something is coming out. It ends up weakening the actual narrative in canon, making it so it can’t stand on its own.
BUT I am 110% percent okay with Marvel creators speaking about their works and its BECAUSE it ALWAYS weakens the actual content and it’s always in the funniest way.
You think Steve’s ending was beautiful and lovingly crafted? The writers and directors can’t even agree where he went and what he did. No thought went into that. They spent WEEKS on promo tours indirectly arguing about what was more canon.
You think Loki was a great show and didn’t mind him dating himself? Well, AFTER the he kissed the only female version of himself, a composer came out and said she crafted all the music with the idea that Loki sees Sylvie like a mother in her mind. “He looks at her like he looks at her mother.”
And there’s shit like this all throughout the MCU production and promo. Actors arguing for ships that make zero sense at the expense of characterization. Completely insane takes on continuity from directors. And I love it… like… yes… expose your projects for the shallow frauds that they are. This isn’t even getting into shit like “just looking at production schedules demonstrates how projects are filmed/developed at the same time, so accidental retcons/regressions are a common thing because they can’t even know how a character has developed because it technically hasn’t filmed yet.” (See: Thor Ragnarok and Avengers IW/EG)
It’s so blatantly bad. I love it. All content creators BESIDES MCU people shut the fuck up and stop ruining your works. MCU… keep going.
