Ep. 14: Friend, Marry, Kill Marvel Edition

Friend Marry Kill Marvel Edition

Welcome back! In this episode we are talking Friend, Marry, Kill Marvel Edition with a special guest. Listen as we decide the fate of MCU characters!

That’s right on this special edition of that popular game, friend stands for a character, actor/actress we like but we are also okay never seeing again. Marry means the casting and everything was perfection. And kill, well you guessed it. Kill represents everyone and everything we think doesn’t belong in the MCU. From characters to casting and storylines…looking at you Fantastic Four.

Friend, Marry, Kill Marvel Edition

This Podcast recording happened because during one of our #MarvelMondays discussions, our good friend and Marvel Brother Mike pointed out just how savage we can be when it comes to our opinions. I won’t say who he pointed out specifically, ahem, I’ll just say we all can be savages when you think about it. But not in a gross, toxic fanboy kind of way.

Mike Yuan is not just a cool Marvel fan. Mike also hosts two podcasts one! Check out his Kim’s Convenience: What You Talking Podcast and Room Escape Divas- Escape Room Podcast. You can also find Mike on Twitter and Instagram @MikeYuan82.

Are you thinking to yourself this Mike guy sounds familiar? You might remember us mentioning a Mike who had a VERY unpopular opinion for our Unpopular Opinions Fandom Edition episode. He doesn’t think Simu should show his abs in Shang-Chi. And yes, that is THIS Mike.

We let Mike defend himself though because all is fair in nerd and war. Just wait until you hear why he thinks it would be okay if Simu keeps his shirt on. And for the record, we still find this extremely unpopular!

Marvel Friends

Pepper Potts, Janet Van Dyne, and even Hawkeye and Drax were among those that made the list of eh okay. Nothing against any of them but at this point are they needed?

However, we all agree more Talos is a necessity and some others deserve better storylines.

This category was just a lovefest. Aside from the few casting choices and/or storylines we discuss in the kill section, Marvel Studios has been pretty spot on for all their rolls. I know the joke is old about the Marvel farm they grow these people on but it has to be true. Have you ever met a more perfect Captain America? Tony Stark? Ant-Man??

Despite a lot of the villains being secondary and not anyone’s favorites, we all can agree that Hela, Loki, and Thanos were well done.

Here is where Mike would say #SavageAshley is about to come out. Yes, I just outed myself, I am the reason we decided to do this episode. But I maintain we ALL can be a bit savage when it comes to our fandoms and favorite characters. Just saying!

Naturally, we spent A LOT of time on this one. It is no secret I’m not a fan of Natalie Portman from Star Wars to Thor- not a fan. I shared about my issues with X-Men and Fantastic Four (Sansa Stark really?!) and another super popular rated R Marvel movie that I just couldn’t get behind.

We thought Mike only had deep-rooted disdain for X-Men and Fantastic Four, Dr. Doom’s portrayal specifically but man does he have some things to say about Danny Rand. Finn Jones, you might want to walk the other way if you see Mike on the street!

And even more opinions.


After cleansing the MCU of our least favorite characters, casting options, and weak storylines we discussed how to fix it all. At the end of the day, we trust Kevin Feige and that going forward, Phase 4 and beyond will be even more amazing that 1-3.

Plus you have got to hear us get into a would you rather with our least favorite characters/films. Star Wars Prequels were brought into this one, yikes is right!
