that's on me tonight Spencer Joe hey remember how we did a video called San Diego Comicon wrap-up we're not done every time we're out we're double wrapping it we're done we're double wrapping our Comic Con coverage this is kind of cool dan dan got to do this over Comic Con weekend we're gonna lead off with a video which is then gonna spin off and spin us off into a thing related to the video Dan sent us up yes I got the chance to do an Avengers fantasy draft with two players from the NFL Melvin Gordon who is running back for the LA Chargers and Ian Thomas is a Titan for the Carolina Panthers it was great to be joined by a couple of you know fellow pro athlete huh fan around I mean your movie fighter yeah exactly it's really the same level of skill my movie fighting skills versus their athletic prowess same amount of burpees before before a game kill on the field we have we share a training regimen we hang out in the gym all the time well that Kido talk right now I'm not bragging you matter that's the truth this was super fun and and they we had a great time but I will say Melvin Gordon took this very seriously notes he was like off it was like he was cramming and like prepping strategy and you'll see you'll see how it turns out but it was a lot of fun we had a great time and then we'll come back into the same thing here cool check this out and we'll be right back everybody Billy business here now avengers endgame hit theatres and it broke our hearts but more importantly it left us without an Avengers team so today we are going to do our Marvel phase for Avengers fantasy draft and with me I have running back from the LA Chargers Melvin Gordon I've got tight end Ian Thomas from the Carolina Panthers and I have Heisman n-c-double-a critic thank you and Merle it's a pleasure to be here with two fellow athletes mr. rap guys we are going to determine you have 30 seconds we have six rounds who is going to be the next great Avengers team or phase four are you guys ready to pick some Avengers yeah all right so we're gonna do this little randomly you've been strategizing I'm nervous there are notes on here you gotta flip over dossier yeah all right so we are gonna randomly pick what number in the draft you're gonna pick everybody please take one card that one's calling you okay well this seems like it's rigged Oh so we got first pick second pick third pick we're gonna go with a snake so we'll go one two three and then three two one now we should tell everyone at home only living Avengers are eligible that means spoilers for endgame Iron Man Black Widow cap they're off the market they're gone all right Dan yeah 30 seconds on the clock pick who's going to be your first Avenger for Dan Merle's face for Avengers I hate having the first pick because you know it's a you got to wait a while and you get a lot of people that go after this and you know if your person is a if it doesn't quite work out then your Avengers team is in trouble so I'm gonna go with I'm just gonna go with straight power and intellect and I'm gonna go with the Hulk I got to go with the Hulk and as my number one draft pick all right Ian since he got the Hulk I mean I gotta go with Thor now all right second round draft pick Thor going to Ian for Ian's team I'm gonna go spider me spider-man third choice in the first round gentlemen these are these are quick first rounds I have a feeling gonna heat up first rate is the fastest it's gonna get tougher from here still a lot of good heroes left on the table you're gonna start our second round your second pick who i'ma go Black Panther King to chela he's coming home second round all right Ian it's your choice 30 seconds on the clock i'ma go ant-man that is a dark-horse choice he's so far down this list and I don't even know where you are all right see that's it that's what you call a value pick that's a good picture value I think this is a good second round pick and you got it you know and I got another pick coming one more pick and then he gets to pick again it's incredibly versatile especially in those Avengers team movies exactly exactly all right so all right second round I get two in a row here I think first of all I mean you got to have a sorcerer supreme on your team right Doctor Strange master of the mystic arts Doctor Strange all right Dan Merle Dan all right pick for round three he's unproven as Captain America but I'll take Sam Wilson I'll take I'll take Falcon slash the new Captain America I'll take Sam Wilson slash Falcon slash new cap yeah it off so at the halfway mark Dan so far your Avengers team consists of the Jay giant the Hulk master of the mystic arks Doctor Strange and new Captain America Sam Wilson's and strong first half for you Dan Ian your third round i'ma go with Valkyrie oh very so at the half you've have ant-man Valkyrie and Thor on your team heavy on as guardians but that could be a good strategy that could be a good strategy to go all cosmic Nick all right it's up to you my friend thirty Seconds are on the clock I'm gonna go scarlet scarlet which Scarlet Witch she goes next in the draft so you have Scarlet Witch Black Panther and spider-man he kind of got a little bit of a street-level team going on here although Scarlet Witch kind of veers a little she's a little in-between cosmic yeah all right go ahead you've got the resources of Wakanda locked in there like there's more than just the super heroism yeah those a lot come with him yeah all right so round pour you get it you get the next pick okay I'm gonna get a mmm I need some good leadership I'm gonna take morning soldier because I start lower calm disappoint me in Avengers Dave the always reliable captain Barnes mr. winter soldier instability but civility is important you need that I mean he's been going strong for over a hundred years Oh think I'm gonna pick up the war machine Oh Rodi Rodi is going in the next round he goes to IANS team you know I think I think this may be this may be a bit of a steal for me I'm gonna take Captain Marvel yeah I was just gonna say I can't believe one of the most powerful Avengers that's a good power it's cuz we said Captain America and I think I saw captain and prostate oh what a slick I got a seal there I think I got a steel there I mean I've got powers a lot of heavy hitters left I've got leadership with the new Captain America we got magic here we have brute strength with the Hulk so I think we need this kind of a serious team I think it's kind of a serious team you know what there's been there may be some other guardians that people might take ahead but I think I think we need a light I think any Drax I think I got an address Drax the destroyer heading to a dance team oh I think that's a good value their hope is going that you got aunt Minn in the water yes sir these are your final two picks you got 15 seconds on the clock nice their naval Khoikhoi yay oh yeah grab my I need a good fighter head of the door melash we have a koi a it's your final pick for your team man you got to close it out strong I'm gonna go like rocket but uh I'm not to go I'm had to go uh I have to go my ethical Hawkeye Hawkeye gets the final nod for you I thought he might be mr. irrelevant so you're Avengers team is set Ian close it out 30 seconds on the clock for your final pick who's left let me see I'm had to go a rocket all right still still a couple big names left on this list a lot of Guardian action still on the market you know I've got a lot of power but I feel like the Hulk is smart and he needs somebody to talk to and go over like sciency stuff with so I'm gonna go with Sheree I'm bringing Sheree onto the team because we need I think we need to beef up the science we need to beef up the science and the intellect all right so Sheree is going to yes all right gentlemen let's recap Dan yeah who is your phase 4 ultimate Avenger see my face for Ultimate Avengers are I've got Sheree here I've got Drax I've got Captain Marvel Sam Wilson slash Captain America I've got Doctor Strange and I've got the Hulk my phase for Avengers that is a pretty strong team I think that Captain Marvel pickup was clutch I think that was a nice deal yeah in your ultimate draft Avengers team so I got rocky racoon the wasp war machine Dockery Ant Man and Thor I feel like your team would be good at you've got strength but you also have a man the wasp you can do some stealth you can do some heists yeah tration teams yeah I think that's almost like a Secret Avengers that's a good Secret Avengers lineup I like that lineup all right give us your final Avengers team I got the Black Panther got a whole nation behind me got Winter Soldier I got Hawkeye I just feel like he's super nice for grit it but I feel the talents dear you need a prankster on the team I got scarlet and then you know I got Spidey he's young he's young you know but he gonna be alright this buddy gonna be alright man I think he wanted more stronger one of the strongest Avengers maybe nice bro you know if y'all just watch the movie well I think phase four we might call it a rebuilding year a little bit but you know a lot of strong characters you guys know your stuff thank you guys so much for coming by Melvin Gordon we have Ian Thomas and of course my favorite football player Tara Moreau thank you yeah thank you guys so much for watching let us know in the comments below who your ultimate Avengers team is and ultimately which one of these three teams do you think should lead phase four thank you guys so much for watching we'll see you next time it was a rebuilding year yes for the space board and back to the sunken here I sunk slowly throughout that video so I decided just let's roll with this go dug Ian's mix of Asgard and shrinky people yeah blend and had some team chemistry the chemistry player which is not bad not a bad play to make the answer for a lot much like ant-man the dead will grow right before I think maybe Melvin leaned a little too hard on skirmishers I think pretty quickly he went so street-level criteria like who would win in a fight or thank you most fun to watch Dutch team fantasy team of all starting running backs well balanced so yeah we're gonna do this because I got a little mad I'm not gonna lie a little butt hurt that I also couldn't do an Avengers fantasy draft so I produced this show so I was like I want to do it's really this this sounds rigged but Dan also pulled first pick for this followed by Spencer myself and Edie we're also gonna go snake style and I call me snake anyone want everyone no one fires before this can it's the ground rules for Avengers so so as we do this I kind of want to get everybody's idea of like what you're going for why you're picking who you're picking blue prevent the Blair let's jump into it what can we only pick like announced features and characters or like just characters Marvel owns people that are in the MCU and now it's kind of currently yeah upcoming or Indians announced currently upcoming but then in the MCU like Marvel now owns a lot of properties yeah have not been announced I mean mastic on your line fine throws angling for him or Doctor Doom look zimos not on the list I can go see but and he won't have a graphic and you'll wreck my you know my aesthetic for the show really wifey Zemo if you want the buzzy running back from Ball State you can take them l Kuiper gave us these Avengers three people will get that reference ESPN draft expertly now let's take a look at the all-stars from the east yeah alright let's jump into this Dan yeah first-round draft pick I'm gonna stay predictable there was a time about a decade ago and it didn't matter what fantasy draft you lead you were in you always took LaDainian Tomlinson with the first pick to me I think that's still the Hulk I think he offers the best value currently of brains and brawn in the MCU so I know that I picked the Hulk first in our the previous drop and I'm going to remain and still play like a Hulk first the Hulk is is gonna go my things now I want the Hulk I would have taken the Ragnarok version of the Hulk simply for like the puka-shell necklace look for him well yeah I love toddlers at battle with me Spenser oh man I'm so torn on what to do because I feel like the people I really want are gonna be available later so I'm gonna start off by picking Captain Marvel I think she can go to space she's overpowered she can take on anything street-level with these so but I think we're going into a into the stratosphere with this one so I'm gonna make sure I have a flyer I got a beamer no deal what's drafted cap tomorrow no and if you're talking box office like I feel like I'm walking down that that corner too I like it okay okay I'm gonna I'm trying to figure out what like the weirdest movie like I'm trying to just figure out like a really interesting combination of characters so especially once we're through phase four and we've gone through Falcon in the Winter Soldier Falcon will be a little more ready to put on his big-boy pants and lead an Avengers team so might have draft one pic is gonna be the Falcon I'm gonna go Sam Wilson okay yeah leading the team okay team leader yeah I don't know I just like the idea of the guy that like everything I like the idea of everyone questioning whether or not he's allowed he's allowed able to do it yet like able to step up I think and whether he falls on his face I think that's an interesting I was trying to make like an interesting movie like story dynamics because I think the best tears the best team would be a mix of you know power and openness and moving this I think that would be our criteria for the best team because anybody can go out there be like good those guys this guy that beat everybody's ass anybody can do that but if we're if we're trying to make an actual watchable movie that's also part of the challenge I think yeah my pick first pick Thor because he's funny son-of-a-bitch mmm he's so funny he's very funny funny should have picked my boy first and he also can explode you with lightning explode you with lightning you know I mean it comes from good stock so ya know can I get another pic yeah yeah dr. strange biatch I'm gonna make a magic hole and a funny as dude with lightning will fly through it a beat you're happy and for could do anything but make his exit American lost for so I'm worried mmm okay so I would just grab my other my other powerhouse now I'm going Scarlet Witch mmm also because I think after her show she's gonna be a loony bin and I think throwing the powder keg on the team is interesting like maybe they just got to keep an eye on her in case she starts going like this at reality Hey those mystical gang signs yeah man all right so I've got Captain Marvel now so I want to have people that are like on par with her and I think that the some of the more exciting news from an acting perspective from a powers perspective Jane Foster is gonna be picking up the mantle of favor so I get a Thor and I get a Natalie Portman I got brains I got brawn I got someone that can fly around maybe a little yeah hello rivalry between the two of them they both seem like pretty confident in their in their abilities I think that that would be a power tension box office acting pedigree you name it Lady Thor Captain Marvel solid mmm I get two in a row here I mean from a resource standpoint and somebody just that's really gonna add to the dynamics in the team I got to go Black Panther right I mean you've got a whole country behind as the video you got old country behind you and so I think you need that you definitely need Black Panther and then also you know we're a bit self-serious now I know that dr. Hulk is a bit more professor Hulk is a bit more funny a bit money or but but I'll go so I will also go with I'll put Spidey I'll put Spidey on Mattel I'll take black panther and I'll take spider-man are going to annihilate this is a box office interests he went on an agility raid [Laughter] yeah all right so I just lost my favorite with four I'm not happy so now I'm in panic mode so I'm just gonna start snatching oh yeah it goes he goes suspense always what is my next fury you get two in a row after Spencer joke oh okay so I'm definitely a cosmic bass team I need someone who can hang maybe someone who can provide like you know be the cue to their James Bond maybe fly them around when they are tired of flying do you get tired flying I don't know yeah and also some comic relief so I'm going to Rocket Raccoon to to pair with Captain Marvel and Jane Thor Foster that is a lot of science between Jane and rocket they have a very scientific team but different approaches to science I feel like Rockets just kind of more of an engineer kind of cobbling any other danger dance Maura Sloan stay all right full panic mode lost my favorite character gonna go with my second favorite in the MCU I'm gonna roll my some of my tech and then my street-level fighter into one I'm going nebula I think she's probably the most underrated character on screen so far in the MCU she's nebula aren't they like two of her no there's two Kimora's now okay that would be interesting too like before star-lord finds her new Gamora just ends up on the Avengers would be kind of fun but yeah I'm going I'm gonna continue the redemption tour of nebula all right head you get two in a row I am the Melvin Gordon of this video right now because I am I am taking this way seriously now this is good posture definitely changed okay in the interest of chemistry and a certain amount of power jazz oh okay I get two picks right mm-hmm I am picking Loki and ant-man oh okay I can get super big I got another magician and I got a magician to watch my magician you know what I think I've picked my team based upon like a I don't like magic I don't understand it is super powerful and and in the Marvel Universe it has these distinct rules so I'm trying to make my team of magicians that can take up for each other they don't have to be like if Doctor Strange doing a bunch of spells and he's really into it these other guys can protect him while he's doing all that all right I'm gonna wasp for for pick number four I think she's she's got some cool power set she's still a little street level II mm-hmm she can do a head scissor takedown just as well as say a black widow and she's funny yeah she's funny she's got little energy blasts don't wast who's up your ass that makes it to my final well we're doing five or four how many rounds do five all right okay all right fine next the penultimate pick okay in that case if I've got another slot I've got Captain Marvel I've got Jane Thor Foster I've got Rocket Raccoon mm-hmm I feel like I'm powerful enough so I want who's my Hawkeye and it's not Hawkeye type whose might call it out call it the way it is like the classic Marvel lamp shading person I'm gonna go Korg I'm gonna bring Korg onto this team maybe rocket can build him an exosuit or something so he can kind of actually be out there on the missions but I really like the dynamic of rocket Korg Captain Marvel and Jane yeah I'm not gonna argue that I think that's pretty solid okay dan who are you or using my next final my final two picks so I'm ready I have to get this right it's important it's very important we're doing is important here there's so many different ways that you could go I'm tempted to move toward vision but there's too many question marks he doesn't have an infinity stone anymore mmm I don't know what his State of Mind is gonna be I feel like he's a wild card he already paralyzed one of these people yeah you know what I'm gonna go with war machine I think you need a military man in there I think you need a guy who who's got he's got the armor he's got the soup he's got the experience he's been there from the beginning so I'm gonna go war machine I'm putting war machine on there and then Black Panther is a great war I think I need another good like warrior like a great like a scrapper like a great fighter so I'm going Gamora I'm gonna bring Gamora on the team because I think she might or shang-chi she i thought about blade but you know blades got his own thing going on I don't know I mean blade would be obviously yeah every mission for the Avengers is hunting vampires everything would be it's just like gnosis returned and blamed just be like the vapor did he bring vampires will you Dan would be the perfect person to use all your your movie finds knowledge be like well actually dennis has energy absorption powers which is Texan Energon ice skate uphill yeah I will round my teeth Gamora solid vital Spencer leisure thank you Dan for leaving vision on the board I feel like vision rounds out my team perfectly he can hang in space he's like as he who knows what his personalities like but I've got three scientists well two scientists with me who knows about core what kind of advanced degrees he may may or may not have I can tinker around in his head soup him up he's kind of the the stoic straight man of my team I think I've got I think I've got the perfect team I'm gonna like it I'm gonna stop it there I like it a lot alright I need one more like heavy ish hitter for this group and I was just gonna go Valkyrie Valkyrie but there's something funny to me about Cassie Lang with Pym particles being on a team with the lady who's banging her dad and just like trying to get along with her especially if there's like I don't like my stepmom syndrome that yeah okay well I mean and they've kind of set it up to where she can't not like her stepmother stepmom has saved her dad a bunch of time that's fair fair she's not gonna be a bad I'm gonna go bad instead I'm sticking with Valkyrie I'm sticking to my guns I'm closing out closing out with Valkyrie because that's a fun dynamic with Falcon to where like you have the the current Queen of Asgard constantly questioning the dude's decisions mmm because one time an old man handed a mushy old yeah that's okay that's my team Falcon nebula Scarlet Witch wasp and Valkyrie diggin it alright can I get a quick board check those on everybody see the rust out almost every damn body on here how many I think I four people one person remaining this is your last pick this is the last two closes we're all supposed to have five these do enough yes they're also Step five you currently work yeah I do I'm looking at him all right well you all know me Talos contrarian to the end here comes Baku in space not okay I do I do I would love to see him back one space okay but right now right now not on my team right now I'm trying to not go to street level as you can see the weakest person on my team can become 5,000 feet tall and I got a transporter slash super powerhouse and dr. strange I got super duper powerhouse and Thor and I got somebody to mess with Thor very very powerful in Loki so my last pic how you jerks you pick one machine that's the thing I would I wanted I would envisioned war machine danger zoning through a Doctor Strange sphere you know I mean doing this and I was like and now that I can't do it I'm just I'm really for come on it's good right now go Cherie she can build a this is my thing I got when you got magic you don't need science which is kind of why I hate magic those are the same thing so I gotta say my last pick I think I want to go with somebody that these guys wouldn't win Thor and Loki aren't fighting the rest of ant-man it's pretty funny you're stalling it is running down a group final answer is barrier team leader he is group I just think Groot on the team I think let's let's talk about some story to damage with our teams cuz I think some of our teammates yearning to get back to each other over the course of these movies that we just lit up some duo's rocket isn't on the team with group yeah you know I mean Thor is estranged from Korg a fortnight how can we defeat these enemies so I could get together with my friend and play some for tonight you know I mean we've split up the gang a little bit yeah Danny I like my team but I feel like I am missing the cosmic or magical element I feel like on an earthbound setting I have a very exceptionally strong team but I will acknowledge that it is somewhat susceptible to a more cosmic threat I am missing that kind of power on my team so I'm very proud of the team that I've assembled but I but I will say that there may be some team-ups required if the threat calls for they might have to make some calls my team may have to call Spencer steam and some notable didn't get drafted don't you need your final pick Dan I did didn't get drafted star-lord I really think he got hurt with his combine performance in infinity war yeah charming it felt the Wonderlic test [Laughter] failed it yeah ever since that Thanos blunder his draft stock isn't lumping Iraq's I'm surprised by yeah he's he's good but I mean he's he's brute strength but he's just again it's we were thick with brute brute strength in this year that's also kind of cut out a venn game maybe do two off the field issues for the buyout market that's gonna happen yeah we we I feel like we all resisted the the new car smell of a blade and shang-chi yeah well again no blade was not a new car thing again it's non-vampire related missions I just brings to the table there there is a version of my team where I picked shang-chi and blade to be an infiltration team yeah to go break fools off that's wonderful yeah scenes would be really wonderful shake G cometh in breaking them off with them you know they're doing martial arts break you off team and then Nick Fury where arguably there would be no Avengers without a Nick Fury you know we need a coach it's like drafting Bill Belichick that's a that's NFL figures Nick Fury's function has been which is to assemble yep we did it remember that we assembled Mary back in the day in Avengers comics when like the issue would be like who are going to be the New Avengers and the issue with the cover would always be like Captain America with a bunch of literally like draft cards just like a bunch of Marvel Universe Marvel Universe handbooks open just looking at people's powers really actor stats and those trading cards were actually a lot of internet arguments if we just gone by the Canon is the the number on the back of the trading of our tops card yeah yeah I wish we needed to do like an early 90s before the MCU when the Avengers were still a joke draft so that we were just all arguing over like Jack of Hearts and like you know an art Shadowhawk anyway the point is I'm looking at my team I gotta say man I'm not trying to be competitive I think what she's pretty dope because I do have I have wizards and I have magic have space alien dudes but I also have a lot of humour and ant-man and Groot I think man ant-man learning how to deal with Loki's duplicity and weirdness of being Asgardian stuff and and group being that's a promise you have an interpersonal time bomb with Thor and Loki and you recruited the most notorious traitor in the universe we have to have a movie dad all Avengers movies have some sort of distinction and the race always end up fighting I had to throw something in there I had to there was that because if you if one of you guys hadn't got smart and picked out rocket I wouldn't have had Loki I would have had rocket and Groot for chemistry reasons because for chemistry reasons I would I would I would sacrifice the brute power that Loki has me he was the villain more or less than ever Avengers movie I feel like ant-man it's gonna be lonely if Thor gets mopey again because she's the only well that's kind of hipster there ya know every day you know it's like who's he gonna quip – yeah well I mean Doctor Strange has it has a very dry wit I think they would jealous with each other and also group nebula can graduate to quip stir finally form a very cruel dark humored quip stir that doesn't understand why like dead baby jokes are funny the Aubrey Plaza of your Scarlet Witch could go at any time and nebulas like I'll just stab her if I need to and everyone else is like that's all she's gonna have a will reave I bond your team I think so I think so yeah random stabbings also a little bit of a I have a lot of experience and you guys are really pissing me off because you're just little kids compared to me like I've been in space like Jetta siding a bunch yeah man I I just really want you to understand that it it up yeah that's it that's nice yeah maybe from the Cho gotten beat up by it is it is you recruited there's Loki so yeah I don't think I change the dynamic overall that thing an income or this would be yes have to be the new wasn't doesn't know doesn't know what's going on no more Kimora it is new Kimora that which I like envision counts but he's a spaceworthy vision that's all I'm requiring of him as they yeah rocky raccoon could duct-tape his head to a gun yeah because the because they weren't drafted and I think that you guys all missed a strategy point because they are not currently on a team because I have black panther I feel like I also got a co issue and mbaku because the Shireen bunny is they all they're all pretty with Korg and Jane Foster's Thor and rocky raccoon and stuff I feel like I get the Grandmaster he he calls them together turns into a mission then I got all the ancient ones then what are we doing here [Laughter] I think we've solved this good job yes in the comments with with your five I want to see what they are this is one of my favorite stupid things to do at some point when they announce an x-men movie you would better believe we will have someone else do this and then I will get angry that I wasn't invited and I will do an English do it again soon um guys as SJ you on phantom entertainment make sure you like and subscribe thank you very much hit that Bell right got a lot of cool stuff coming up that you guys are gonna dig we've got two articles we want to let you know about on phantom calm right now also make sure you're checking that stuff out Lon's writing some really cool stuff on Famicom danielle's on there we've got some really cool editorial stuff we've got a look at the other black widow who will be introduced in the upcoming black widow movie how could she how she could have a big role moving forward sort of also digging through the quagmire of like how can this prequel movie actually like set up in support phase 4 which is a cool read and then another one of our writers Alistair gray took a look at ask master who is probably one of the most is he still underrated in Marvel Comics he's like we just did a whole sports metaphor so I can say this he's like the the draft Nick and the end that like that's the numbers geeks Goddard character now he's like really in vogue and hipster Marvel Twitter got it got it got it who was the the villain in in the Black Widow film now it's weird to me that like somewhere in all of those weird phases Black Widow just like randomly fought like one of the biggest comics villains he's also a perfect villain for though cuz like she's all about all these techniques and he's about technique and then her other you know I'm so yeah he's like mimics any fighting style so she's gonna try to head scissor and he's just gonna head scissor and there nobody wins nobody wins so make sure you guys check those out let's jump on to this let's jump on to another team up if you will Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and reuniting so I'm good this is via deadline they're teaming up with the Ridley Scott to write and star in a movie called the last duel this is a revenge story based on a novel by Eric Yeager which is a great name and this is a it's like a medieval French like revenge story I believe I think it's about the LAT the very actually last duel that was actually sanctioned yeah that was actually sanctioned so it's two guys something happens to one of their wives and there's very high stakes sort of involved around the duel if memory serves and by memory I mean the paragraph I read right before we went live you haven't read the last duel so sources say the script is done it was written by Damon and Affleck along with Nicole hollow Center who wrote can you ever forgive me and friends with money I think this is cool well I hang on I'm bearing the lead because according to also the story this is spreading because of a photo of Matt Damon literally just carrying the script that had the title who was written by and directed by I was like oh my god so I am hoping that a more a-list talent starts to troll people by just like carrying credible I'm gonna walk around with a Luke Cage script page but yeah this is the Good Will Hunting team teaming up at Birth Lee Scott what do you guys think are they gonna do and they're gonna do all the end I think so that's cool I want to see a Damon Affleck duel like I'll bet they are chomping at the bit to finally fight each other on screen like to actually fight yeah yeah but it's like a French stool so they're gonna smack each other with the gloves and then walk a little ways and then turn around yeah do you think they're gonna go full just like a lot of blush in a wig what's it been a flag trying to be a flop it's gonna be the finest am saying in the world both of them like nicholas hoult in the favorite just powder pancake up in tights just slapping at each other yeah I'd watch that I'm excited to see that they is it the first thing they've written together since Google hunting I thinks it's gotta be right Daniel you know what I mean they've been I think I do not if you have the choice between writing and being a movie star be a movie star but it's exciting to see that they haven't stopped trying to write screenplays together so yeah we'll see if I think we'll see if Good Will Hunting was a fluke or if they're great writers like they their first big movie and they got won the Oscar for Best Screenplay Lee do you remember when um I've mentioned not Manchester by the sea but something by the sea where it was like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and they were together this little like vanity project together it's like if they had gotten Ridley Scott to direct that that's what this seems to be like just weird little hey but a vanity project and then you get Ridley Scott on it he's like I haven't really Scott shoots your home videos or something you know it's really it's really it insular for like such a big director so that's one thing I'm excited about I don't know that it's gonna be some super runaway hit but I think it'd be great if it was a runaway hit with these guys playing pop so the full thing yeah the flu you know the whole what's that movie of them the one that yeah cheese cloth candles let's get nuts yeah candles syphilis lice in our wigs yeah let's go merci beaucoup yeah Dan yeah well this be great oh that's what Ridley Scott's hit is it but then almost every directors very rare to find a director that's like hit hit hit hit hit you know it's like didn't evil Anu maybe so mark so far yeah exactly it's it's I don't know and it literally does that script he's had for 13 years you know in characters into our MCU J Spencer and I were debating on whether or not to include a beret and kylo Ren they're gonna do a flyby in the face v sure you have the pitch from now Disney owns all of that yeah I mean if they got Damon enough like to do this story that certainly does half of your marketing work for you yeah you have to do is put the two of them on a poster together like pointing guns at each other and that just call it a day yeah like yeah that's it so good job yeah it's a throwback when movies were trying to just get you to see it based on star power and I don't think one star does it anymore but what if I told you they were two stars to Utah what if I told you that they were buddies what if I told you that the last time they wrote something it's nuts I do like that it's not it's interesting that it's not just star power but it's like the the meta of the story behind them is what's going to like get people interested because I know for a long time people like oh they had kind of a falling out when Ben Affleck became a huge star and stuff like that that was always sort of around the campfire as a falling out no I don't think never having that simply but along the same time as homeboy was coming a star you start to do to start to get it strange you had to get your own camps you used to be two dudes that kicked it with each other every day ride to my flophouse in like West Hollywood riding and now you're dating JLo Wow yeah oh you're a drinker you're like no you know and like carbs so that kind of makes me not like carbs also I got this new script Gigli I'm working on so I can't do this cool thing with you courage under fire with that compound up yeah we remembered bat Damon Ben Affleck flip flop careers cuz for after Good Will Hunting Matt Damon was like the the the the the blockbuster guy Ben Affleck was like the indie guy and then they just went like that and reindeer games was that was the turning point reindeer games what was the turning point well I think born hmm Bourne Identity I think was the tech summer was born I did he came out like Damon action stars like oh okay he could do it and then he just was then he just kind of did what he did ran with it it's also the thing about like the perfect role there are action stars and then there are people who can play an action star you know me like I feel like Harrison Ford got to do a couple of really a lot of action type roles but he was really just a great actor who could do that stuff and then you got like Jason Statham who like if he's not vaulting something I don't want to see [Laughter] what's my punch combinations like on to just like the box-office powerhouse – after after that like and that Damon was just like all the Pretty Horses and Bagger Vance like and then changed exactly yeah I think we'll trace it back to him buying a really big house that was a guy that's our megohm hits brown and these horses [Laughter] you can make him in the gluey garage no anyway all right I'm gonna transition to our sad third story somehow I Rutger Hauer past on Friday his funeral was today his family sort of waited until today to formally make the announcement that he had passed away at the age of 75 howard was just an actor's actor he's all over the 70s and 80s Blade Runner tears and rain is probably the big notable thing for Rutger Hauer but I mean this this is a this is the dude like he's his I am to be credit list is insane he was always working he absolutely just never stopped I think how many things did he have in progress or in development I was looking at I believe it was like two movies that were that were waiting to be released like two in post-production and three in pre-production yeah no I was just ridiculous TV video games I got really southern I apologize movies video games video video games I mean that Kingdom Hearts yes yeah and he always worked but he seemed like one of those guys who was like with Blade Runner and The Hitcher and stuff in the 80s was like this very like popular cult guy who was in a bunch of stuff that influenced a bunch of filmmakers and then 20 years later they started making movies and they were just like it's sort of the Tarantino effect of like Rutger Hauer and like kind of grabbed him and put him in stuff more which then sort of resuscitated and revived his career a little bit so it's it's it's not a lot of people have the kind of presence mm-hmm just brought a weight just to things even that kind of enough that the Batman Begins like that nothing part of the you know didn't you get the memo like he he brings a like a kind of a menacing quality like you get that character he doesn't have to do a whole lot as far as like you don't have to establish on the page like oh that CEOs are watch out for him yeah oh this guy is you don't mess with this guy what that better that's a great point that when when you cast him seventy eighty percent of it whatever it is it's done because he brings that much to it that's a great point dude yeah I think he was a super unlikely leading man and lady Hawk I think that's a reason why I like that movie so much she was you know not the the guy that you would consider you know as the prototypical like square top very handsome like knight in shining armor dude but I think that's what made him work so well as a romantic lead I think if you had done Lord of the Rings in the the 80s that's your Aragorn mmm he's just I mean that's he is like the the rugged I just walked out of the woods but he can also play like a weird high elf and dudes don't have yeah I don't really know fantasy like that but I can't see him being like that sort of like mmm that overly official or like and it's like yeah the most the most square-jawed elf yeah right yeah right yeah right right and and when I was a kid he was in a bunch of things that people who are sea mists would call trash he was in wedlock called dead it was called deadlock at the time I was on HBO films at him and Mimi Rogers were put in a like a co-ed prison I'm listening and the reason why people didn't do anything or get weird or whatever or try to escape is they had these things around their necks to where if you've got more than a such a such amount of feet away from the person you were deadlocked with both of you guys the devices would explode right so then so then basically in that movie him and Mimi Rogers are they don't know that their partners and they fight that basically the whole plot of the movie is they find out that they're each other's partners something they can escape nobody knows who their partner is so nobody ventures outside this the system so they they escape and they just go on the road and they go to motels and they just have this bed we rode movie together while they're you know escaping horrible danger but like he's just so charming and stuff like that blind fury hobo with a shotgun there's so many things where he's like production value for lack of a better word for some of these movies you don't I mean and that's I love people who use their who want to work and maybe they're not so hot they can be that a list this or even be list at but they want to work and they're willing to live their gravitas to other filmmakers and stuff and like Harvey Keitel is basically responsible for Quincy routine over for better or worse he saw Reservoir Dogs are decided I'll be in this yeah it was the person that got attached and all the rest of the stuff that happened after that so when an actor like that gives you that that photo confidence about being in your little Alex canister or Michael Caine boom and he did that for so many people yeah and I just think that's I don't want us to lose that part of his legacy yeah no I go back to Blade Runner I think you know that so much for that movie feels very cold and you know I feel like that's the one of the points of movies supposed to feel sort of detached and cold and and almost like there's a sickness in the future and but the irony of him you know playing a replicant sorry I'm going yeah sorry is he feel he is one of the only thing even well obviously he Harrison Ford might also be a replicant and ends up being one but reckon Howard feels like the only person who's actually like flesh and blood and it has like ironically yeah red blooded you know running running an ACO is always yeah that he improvised her wrote himself that speech that speech so yeah you know the word leave throughout gravitas and I feel like that gets thrown around and I'm glad to like too liberally because like he really had like a gravity to every scene he was in than just like it sucked you in so I don't know it's not like a traditional movie star look quality but like he just couldn't look away from his face and I think that I'm the best way possible yeah yeah and Blade Runner doesn't work unless he nails that final scene no unless he talks about tears and rain and the things that he's seen and that's the irony of the movie is that the replicant is the is that he is the brings the humanity because it's not wanting to not exist anymore he's bringing in that human sense of preservation and and Salva and life which which the humans have lost all respect for and yeah yeah he's he he he makes that's he that seemed makes that movie work yeah no absolutely it's the entire movie done in one scene and yeah and also it's one of those thing it cannot be and cannot be lost that like it's one of the times when the actor has some great idea and it really is a great idea yeah that should be canonized lionize that if you do not have you know Robert Shaw doing the doing the speech it just went for this first let's get what's on the script then we can cameras off and go eat a sandwich cuz you know what no well yeah you're right you're right but that's the one guy that that good director goes yeah yeah yeah well yeah we will absolutely do that and he earned that also he earned that right to to be able to do that stuff cuz he really did so much work on that character he really did a real bio people talk about writing BIOS he wrote a bio for a robot mess with that yeah yeah yeah guys help us celebrate this actor in the comments help us say goodbye to him send him off he really was if you're a movie fan I mean he's just yeah like a blue-collar utter a like a blue-collar roll-up-your-sleeves level around a lot too I'm not gonna put a hat on a hat you guys nailed this that's our show today charting with Dan is out honest trailers is out honest trailers commentary honest trailer commentaries comes out out today yes so it is also also out screen junkies show with Hal over its in Diego comic-con is out make sure you guys check that stuff just join us you count destroy the view count as Ryan says in the script we'll see you tomorrow have a good day you

    Star Lord's Thanos blunder was a "Chris Webber calling a non-existent timeout" level mistake. Then again, Chris Webber had a decent NBA career.

    The editing on the NFL Avengers draft was off. You can't show the picture before we hear the pick and see the reactions. A) you're tipping picks and B) we're missing the reaction shots.

    1st DR. Strange 2nd Captain Marvel 3rd Thor 4th Jane Thor 5th Scarlet Witch 6th Spider Man.

    ^Two Nerds 5 OP's Thor getting to respect Jane us Thor. Spider Man leading the team where Thor is guiding him and Jane is having discutions about multiverse qantum physics and other stuff this is the movie where spider man learns to lead by example and learns that even if he is weakest one of these guys in strenght he is best leader that is story about growth and he is going in space because hes identity is known with hes aunt and Ned and MJ in start because he's afraid but in the end he go back because he understands that life in fear is no life at all.

    My picks:
    1: Shuri
    We got vibranium tech. Totally fills the tony stark role. One of my favorite characters

    2: Professor Hulk.
    All the brains, all the brawn

    3: Thor
    We need cosmic power, but we also need personality (so that disqualifies Captain Marvel right now).

    4: Spider-Man
    The moral center, and heart of the team now that captain America is gone

    5: Falcon
    This was a hard choice, but I think my team needs leadership and a strategist. Also shuri can beef up his tech for him and make him even more powerful.

    I wanted to pick another girl. My first choice was Nebula, but she is not loyal to the earth. Wanda is very powerful, but not the best decision maker. I was thinking that Dr strange would fill the Wanda role, but with more discipline, but then I got to thinking that he has no use for Shuri’s tech, and I want her to have more to do. Part of me was thinking Vision because Shuri can give him a nice overhaul, but Sam Wilson’s character and tactical intelligence won the day at the end.

    Do we know that Vision is coming back? I presume his mind is stored on Shuri’s flash drive somewhere, but we don’t actually know that, do we?

    Here is my full draft board:

    S Tier- full powerhouses
    1. Captain marvel
    2. Spiderman
    3. Hulk
    4. Dr. Strange
    5. Jane Foster

    A Tier: solid starters, can lead in a pinch
    6. Thor (definitely subpar combatant by endgame)
    7. Black Panther
    8. Valkyrie
    9. Wasp
    10. Ant-Man
    11. Rocket
    12. Falcon

    B- high level bench players
    12. Groot- will be probably be much older by guardians 3
    13. Nebula
    14. Winter Soldier
    15. Okoye
    16. Hawkeye
    17. Shang chi
    18. Drax

    Undrafted players:
    19. New black widow
    20. Star Lord
    21. Mantis
    22. Blade-. Totally agree with Dan that he's not a team player

    Do not draft list(Lottery tickets)- probably a toxic/wasted pick, but could develop into a star:

    Vision, Scarlett witch, Gamora, Loki, old man cap, Monica rambeux, war machine- will have problems repairing armor without specific teamates

    First off this, this is amazing. Second of all, I really like Melvin gordans team. A plus plus for the intensity. The draft board miss of Captain marvel was bad, but otherwise very solid team. Vibranium can do so much. Spiderman isn't dying again, so he is basically invincible. Also he is incredibly smart and has tons of Tony tech at his disposal. He seems to have inherited a lot of Tony's toys.

    Here's my Avengers picks:
    1) Sam Wilson – I agree with the sentiment that he'll struggle to hold leadership
    2) Doctor Strange – I mean, dude's both powerful and is actually a doctor
    3) Ant-Man – He's got the suit and he's got the funny
    4) Spider-Man – (Spoilers for FFH) He's lying low for the most part, Taking refuge with Strange in the sanctum
    5) Nebula – Pretty much a foil to everyone else on the team

    This team was deliberate because A) I wanted the core Guardians to stick together, B) Thor should do his own thing for a bit and Hulk is down a hand for the moment C) I'm also forming A-Team comprised of…

    1) Captain Marvel – Obvious choice
    2) Pepper Potts – Seriously, nobody's gonna draft Rescue?
    3) Valkyrie – I mean, she's Valkyrie
    4) Wasp – Easy connection point to the other team
    5) Scarlet Witch – Once again, super powerful

    Rhodes and Bucky are actually working on their own things as well

    I loved a lesser known Rutger Hauer film, Flesh&Blood. One of the more Warhammery movies out there. Also, The Hitcher, terrifying performance.
