Honestly this whole thing regarding Rey never picking up a saber is ridiculous when she's already clearly proficient with her staff.

Yeah people should stop saying Rey was untrained. Finn also had some melee weapons training. A shot Kylo wasn't fighting total noobs.

I'd be fine if they changed Danny to Asian.

Anyone have a creative idea on how they'll write them out?

We know that Sen. Organa died somewhere between the Rebels cartoon (5 years BBY) and the beginning of Ep. 4 and that before he died he told his daughter where to find Obi-wan Kenobi...but only in the Rebellion's "most desperate hour". Hmmm...it might have been better to set Rebels 5 years after Ep. 3 so that it would make more sense for Kanan and Ezra to have done their heroic deeds in the founding of the Rebellion, but also to have faded out of memory to a more sensible degree.

I get that Kanan and Ezra aren't strong enough to fight Vader and the Emperor so it's not completely mysterious why Yoda and Obi-wan focused on Luke, but does anyone have a guess as to how they're going to explain why Kanan and Ezra didn't at least show up in the original trilogy. Two Jedi Knights would still be huge assets for the Rebellion in the OT era even if they aren't top tier or the best trained. I mean, they seem to be good enough to help found the Rebel Alliance working directly for Sen. Organa and I'm guessing we'll see Mon Mothma as well. Surely they're not just going to kill them off?

I actually liked what they did with Ashoka in Clone Wars. I thought she was going to be killed off and her loss would be one more big step towards the Dark Side for her master Anakin. Having her quit was a cool way to have her leave the Jedi order that explained why she wasn't in Ep. 3.

The core concept of the X-Men is nearly perfect. A single, sci-fi based origin story for every single super power and a minority rights/outcast/underdog metaphor that will always be appealing. They don't need the other 4 corners of the Marvel Universe to have their own awesome universe to play in. Do we realize they haven't done anything with the Shi'ar yet at all?

This is not to say I like having the Marvel Cinematic Universe dismembered. It is a much more enriched universe when the 5 corners of the Marvel Universe are interwoven:

  1. Government/Espionage (Avengers, SHIELD, etc.)
  2. Mutants (X-Men, etc.)
  3. Sci-fi (Fantastic Four, Inhumans, GOTG, etc.)
  4. Magic/Fantasy (Dr. Strange, Iron Fist, Asgard, etc.)
  5. Vigilantes/Street (Spider-man, Punisher, Daredevil, Runaways, etc)

I like the idea that the Dark Side guy is scratching together Sith legends and hints from the Force to rebuild the Sith order. That's why his lightsaber looks a little different. He was partly reinventing the wheel.
