Yes. Fair point. Off on a tangent there. Sorry about that.
@RogerRoger Those two Adam West Batman animations were entertaining.haha
I used to loved listening the live-action tv series theme song when I was young.

This looks pretty cool.
A few other MCU tv series were announced:
Also, Kit Harington's reportedly joining the MCU. I have no idea which character he'll be playing but fans seem to want him to be Wolverine.
Edit: Kit Harington confirmed as the Black Knight in Eternals.

@WanderingBullet No UK release date for the Disney+ service yet. It just means lots of people will be buying parrots and taking to the high seas,I guess.
@LN78 Same here. Couldn't find any info regarding the release date for my country either. I'll probably wait till they have already released a few of the Marvel series first before subscribing, though.
@WanderingBullet Apparently Disney have quite a few licensing agreements with international broadcasters such as Sky that have to run their course before they can use that content on the new platform. I don't see why that should stop them from showing the new Marvel and Star Wars stuff,though. Disney are leaving money on the table by delaying so hopefully we won't have to wait too long. Interesting news on the Breaking Bad sequel - it's coming out in October which is very exciting.
@WanderingBullet Absolutely, that trailer for The Mandalorian is excellent, but the bigger highlight from the D23 Star Wars panel was Ewan McGregor's surprise-but-not-a-surprise appearance. Confirmation of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series made me the happiest little fanboy!

Yeah, The Mandalorian looks like it’s going to be really good. I have been hesitant to commit to yet another monthly subscription service, but Disney is pressing me here. I’ll probably relent, even though I probably only use my Netflix and Amazon Prime subs very rarely. But the Star Wars and Marvel content is going to be too much to pass up.
The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
Yeah, I'm more of a casual Marvel & Star Wars fan, but so far the Disney+ stuff is looking good enough for me to bite.
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)
Yeah as nice as Disney+ looks these streaming services are getting out of hand already. I got rid of cable because it was costing too much now with everybody and their mother having a streaming service it's getting as expensive as cable. It was fine when it was just Netflix and Hulu but they had to go and let everyone have their own.

@RogerRoger Ewan was great as Obi-Wan Kenobi. He's character, Liam Neeson's and Darth Maul were the three main things I liked from Episodes 1-3.

I agree with @Tasuki. I'm really disinclined to pay out for yet another streaming service as and when it becomes available because the partitioning and paywalling of content is already becoming insufferable and it's only going to get worse. Fortunately(?) I'm suffering from MCU fatigue and the Star Wars hype train left the station for me many years ago when the prequels turned out to be such crushing disappointments so in the case of Disney+ I'm happy to wait for a build up of that content and then pay for a month to binge watch it over a few rainy weekends. Access to all the Disney and Pixar back catalogue in 4K HDR would no doubt convince me to fork out on a more permanent basis but we have no idea yet if and when that will be on offer. I'm still very much of a mind to buy physical copies of games,shows and films that I really enjoy so hopefully Disney (and Apple and the rest) will recognize there is still a market (even a niche one) and continue to make hard copies of their new content although I noticed recently that there was no 4K blu ray release of "Chernobyl" which I really hoped there would be.It certainly seems that physical media is not long for this world and that makes me sad.
I'm okay with a another subscription service, I only have Netflix constantly and rotate one of the other services. I always get deals that way, especially from NOW TV. We just need Disney to buy out all the other stuidios apart from Netflix and Amazon and the problem will be solved lol.
We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game
@WanderingBullet Back when the Obi-Wan project was one of the "A Star Wars Story" anthology films, there were strong rumours that Liam Neeson would reprise his role as Qui-Gon Jinn and appear as a Force Ghost. I'm hoping that's one element they've retained during the shift to television.
I also want the series to be called Star Wars: Hello There. Will riot if it isn't.
Decided to pick back up on the "Arrowverse" shows. It's a bit of a daunting task as I'm a couple seasons behind and they're up to 5 (and soon to be 6!) shows, but I found a resource which details in which order to watch every episode, so I'm going to try it out. Plus, I'm not going to force myself to binge through them, and rather casually watch them inbetween other things.
Also, I just finished up Captain Earth. A mecha anime I recently finished, I put my full thoughts in the anime thread, but I quite enjoyed it.

@RR529 Let me know how you get on. I pretty much abandoned the Arrowverse after the Elseworlds crossover. Didn't watch Arrow anyway if I could help it, as it really is terrible. But, I got pretty bored with the Flash's formula and Supergirl got a bit dull too.
Legends is still the most fun to watch. I'll catch up a bit before Crisis - I'll watch that without doubt!
@RogerRoger Have you watched Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures? I watched a few episodes and they were not bad. Liked the art direction as well.

@KALofKRYPTON Yeah I could get into Arrow either, came across as too soapy for my liking.
@JohnnyShoulder It started off as painfully 'not-Batman' - and never really grew out of it. I know 'leftie - gobshite' Ollie probably wouldn't have secured the same level of success, but the 'team *insert superhero here' thing gets very old, very quickly.
I think that's why Legends works so much better; they're actually a team of capes!
