  • I contend that Stan Lee is the Watcher, Uatu. That’s how he can be present in all the Marvel movies in different eras and look the same.

    • maybe not uatu because he never gets involved in things but i can definitely buy him as a watcher.
      anyway im surprised they are saying its a big role, normally stan doesnt do much other than stand there.

      • He got involved when he spoke to Peter in one of the Raimi movies. I think that’s the extent of his direct interaction with the principals in the movies. He played Willy in F4 and himself in F4: Silver Surfer, so he couldn’t have been a Watcher there, and probably not one in Incredible Hulk either, but in all the others, it’s possible.

        There would be a certain irony if he was a Watcher when one considers that in Daredevil the blind Matt Murdock had to keep him from being run over because he wasn’t watching where he was going, lol.

      • In “Amazing Spiderman” he danced a bit. In “The Avengers” there was a deleted scene where he gave Steve some dating advice.

      • That would be a crazy awesome way to tie the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe together. I don’t think they’d actually go there, but it would be awesome.

  • I hadn’t heard, is Kevin Clash back doing Elmo again? If not, it’s a good imitation.

    • I was going to ask the same question. It’s very spot on if it isn’t him.

  • Cool, so Episodes and Shameless already have their premieres online. Looks like I’ll have something to watch tonight while I wait for Justified to start.

  • I like Elmo ok, but I would have loved to see her with the Count.

    • LOL!! Totally!! Even though I think Elmo adorable (annoying yes but adorable) you can’t have Buffy The Vampire Slayer on Sesame Street and not have the Count standing next to her. It would be cute to have the Count a tad nervous being around SMG and have SMG ease his fears saying she only played a Vampire Slayer on television (make believe). Then again, it would be too funny to have the Count and then a blonde vampire Muppet too. You know the whole Angel versus Spike (BlondieBear). LOL, of course now I am thinking about the Angel Episode Smile Time.
