How do they explain the sister? Was she some hidden part of Richard Parker's (not the tiger) life? ;)

It was kind of rhetorical...just ribbing over the bizarre Richard Parker (not the tiger) stuff in the (not-so) Amazing movies. ;)

...So, Richard Parker is often confused for some kind of "tiger", I'm guessing?

Just saw this too. YAY!!!!!! Kinda a brave decision on Disney's part--- reversing course, plus standing up to Net trolls--- but a welcome and correct one. I agree with Alan Horn: Gunn gave a humble and contrite, not to mention exceedingly classy response to getting fired. And the films speak for themselves. An awful human being does not, I think, makes films like the Guardians movies. GoG are the best films in the MCU for my money, full of heart.

I'm so glad he'll be back.

What he lacked a few years ago in subtlety or taste, he is making up for now in class.

Just did the double bill at my local: Infinity at 9pm, Endgame at midnight.

Infinity got a big applause at the end, Endgame just a mystified silence.

It's not "bad", but it’s not great, sadly. Much to process, but much to be disappointed with too. :(

Reportedly, there's also no traditional end-credits "Tease", this time?

(You KNOW why. Face facts, and don't pretend you don't.) :P

No, there’s nothing on the end, but there’s a weirdy kind of "cast sign-off" way of listing the credits.

Kind if like the whole film...it’s just a bit weird. And it has one major, major problem that rips the whole thing apart.

So many missed opportunities on many levels,
