AGATHA ALL ALONG Star Kathryn Hahn Recaps The MCU In Song And Reveals New Footage From The Series

Agatha All Along star Kathryn Hahn has recapped the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in song while hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live! and reveals some intriguing new footage from the upcoming series...

Agatha All Along star Kathryn Hahn hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday evening and brought viewers up to speed with the MCU's complicated history courtesy of a catchy song. 

A highlight? "Thanos snapped his fingers causing half of all the world to die, Tony Stark he bit the dust, then every single grown man cried, they fought at an air-o-port, that Ant-Man guy is really short, Iron Man he went and died, which made a bunch of virgins cry."

Most will see the funny side, though some will no doubt be horribly offended that the WandaVision star dared poke fun at the fanbase! 

Hahn also interviewed her Agatha All Along co-star Joe Locke about his mysterious role in the spin-off, and a shortened version of the recent trailer which plays at the 0:48 mark in the player below features new scenes from the series. 

At one point, Locke's unnamed Teen says, "The Road will give you the thing you want the most if you make it to the end." Could it be that he wants to travel there so he can find his mother, the Scarlet Witch? That would be one way to resurrect her, anyway!

Check out Hahn's song and the full interview with Locke below.

Agatha All Along focuses on Kathryn Hahn's character, Agatha Harkness, from the acclaimed Marvel Studios' series WandaVision, as she sets off on a dangerous, mysterious adventure filled with trials and tribulations. Showrunner Jac Schaeffer, who was the creative force behind WandaVision, directs the pilot episode.

In the series, the infamous Agatha Harkness finds herself down and out of power after a suspicious goth Teen helps break her free from a distorted spell. Her interest is piqued when he begs her to take him on the legendary Witches' Road, a magical gauntlet of trials that, if survived, rewards a witch with what they’re missing.

Together, Agatha and this mysterious Teen pull together a desperate coven, and set off down, down, down The Road. 

In addition to Hahn, Agatha All Along stars Joe Locke, Sasheer Zamata, Ali Ahn, Maria Dizzia, Paul Adelstein, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Okwui Okpokwasili, with Debra Jo Rupp, with Patti LuPone, and Aubrey Plaza. The executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum,  Mary Livanos and Jac Schaeffer. The directors for the series include Jac Schaeffer, Rachel Goldberg and Gandja Montiero.

Agatha All Along premieres on September 18 at 6pm PT/9pm ET, with the first two episodes, exclusively on Disney+.

Us nerds deserve to be made fun of sometimes so it’s all good lol.

Anyway , my theory has been that if he is indeed Wiccan that Billy finds out he is the Scarlet Witch’s son and that she might be trapped at the end of the Witches Road so he sets out to find her with Agatha’s help who in turn wishes to get her powers back…

However I could see it being that Wiccan is wrong and that it isn’t Wanda that is trapped there but some sort of malevolent force that is trying to escape which tricked them into coming akin to Wenwu & the Dweller in Darkness in Shang Chi.

Seriously though that 800 movies and shows thing is no joke. Marvel is gonna become incomprehensible soon. Maybe not right now, maybe not even after Secret Wars, but it won't be very long after Secret Wars that the MCU is way too much for future generations to even consider trying to get into.

We're already kinda there and the interest with younger people is waning. There are teenagers who just don't get it so don't bother with it. Too much baggage and homework.

They need to reboot as hard as they possibly can with Secret Wars. In a way that older fans see it as a new beginning and new fans see it as the actual beginning.

Am I looking too far ahead? Maybe I should wait ten years when it's too late and then come on here and say "They should have rebooted harder after Secret Wars". I'll wait. I'm too early with this advice. I'll wait until it's retroactively a complaint about what they shoulda done did.

@ObserverIO - Nah, I think you’re pretty spot on!!!!! It has gotten to be a bit daunting for new fans, I also think that Marvel knows this which may be why they chose to go the Multiverse route!

@ObserverIO - If you skip the shows which you mostly don't need we are still a way off it even being one to watch per week but post Secret Wars should be an easy enough jumping on point and almost all the films can be watched as standalone.

Perception can be a thing however so I get the point but then that could be said about Bond films and a bunch of long running shows/franchises so with the ability to binge watch at your leasure streaming doubt young people would have an issue unless percieved to be one.
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 7/11/2024, 8:19 AM
@Apophis71 - With Bond almost every movie is self-contained. Recently the Daniel Craig ones were less so, but even then you only need to catch up from Casino Royale onwards. Casino Royale is the beginning of the story, opening with him becoming 007, effectively it's a reboot.
Apophis71
Apophis71 - 7/11/2024, 9:11 AM
@ObserverIO - For sure with Bond and knew that would be the response, lol, the point more being however there is a lot of stuff, especialy with TV that has a LOT of new content (shows like CSI, Law & Order and NCIS for instance or with the UK Coronation Street, Casualty, Red Dwarf & Dr Who) but with films there is also stuff like Godzilla, Star Trek and Star Wars and a LoT more to catchup on than the MCU films in most those cases that continue to attract new viewers. I mean the animated series version of One Piece has something like 1000 episodes I believe if looking to something with super powers in regard to shows not films.

If the films were not all on the same streaming service easy to see the release or timeline order to binge it could be more of an issue.

So it would only be an issue if percieved to be one cos in regard to the films only it isn't actualy that much to catch up on and are mostly standalone even if there is some connective tissue thus break it down to sub-franchises which mostly only have three each...

@Apophis71 - Shared universes where the world itself is the concept, like Star Wars and Star Trek are more flexible. A lot of Star Wars stuff is connected and eventually that will get too big also, but you can pretty much just watch all 9 of the main movies and not need to watch any other spin-off in order to catch up.

That's the great thing about a world like Star Wars too, is that you can tell a story with an older Luke Skywalker training the next generation or a movie set a thousand years before he was born. It's flexible storytelling and so you can dip into that world more easily. Even the very first Star Wars was episode IV. At that point the first three films didn't exist, but they didn't need to in order to understand the story.

A Star Trek show can feature all new characters and never once refer to stories or characters from any past show or movie and it's easy to understand because ethe concept itself is a world set in the future where humanity now travels the stars as part of an intergalactic federation of planets.

But the Marvel movies are ALL interconnected.

You can watch Shan Chi, but then there's that scene at the end with Hulk and Wong and it leads into the next Avengers movie and in order to understand tha you will indeed have to watch pretty much every single Marvel movie and show to get the full story. You may also need to watch all the legacy multiverse movies too, in order to benefit from those cathartic moments (like Andrew Garfield saving MJ in NWH).

Basically, with Marvel, all roads lead to Avengers and Avengers in turn leads back to everything else.

@ObserverIO - As I say, yeh I get the issue, just don't think it is that big of one unless percieved to be one as not that many hours to binge the films realy and you can easily skip most and jump in when you want.

In the main without much issue cos they do a decent job telling you what you need to know in the films for those who hadn't watched prior ones, you could watch any of the TNG films without having watched any of the Star Trek TV shows.

Sure you'll get more out of the films if you'd seen stuff prior but take MoM and a newbie didn't need to have watched anything before that had Wanda in realy, could easily swap her with a new evil witch character seen for the first time as told you what you needed to know about her past.

Again, only an issue if percieved to be one and if talking new audience your talking kids who ALWAYS have that problem with anything that has been going for more than a few years and are major ones for binging stuff online and they do keep making stuff that doesn't require prior knowledge like Eternals, Shang Chi and F4 (sorry, you don't need prior knowledge for an end credit thing) and we ARE getting a reboot of sorts after Secret Wars which restarts the clock in a lot of ways. I mean there was as little NEED to have seen the prior standalone Spider-man films for NWH as there would be to know anything about prior adventures of variants for the first Into the Spiderverse film (which we didn't get) even if you could get more out if the film if you had.

ObserverIO - 7/11/2024, 10:15 AM
@Apophis71 - Yeah the multiverse material is def optional. And you don't need to watch previous movies to understand the credits scene in Shang Chi, but it leads into Avengers 5, so if you've only ever seen Shang Chi and then you watch his next appearance in Avengers 5, you'll suddenly be confused and will need to go back and watch most if not all of the other shows and movies.

Eternals is fairly self-contained, but the movies plot rests on the blip. DS-MoM is self-contained-ish, but the movie starts with the aftermath of Endgame and how it was Doc Strange's choice and actions that caused the blip but also saved everyone. That's a whole chunk of the beginning. If you'd never seen a marvel movie then you'd be pretty lost 5 minutes into the film.

ObserverIO - 7/11/2024, 10:20 AM
@Apophis71 - TFF is pretty intriguing though. Essentially that movie is a self-contained universe and will possibly set up the multiversal threat that would probably be the story of Avengers 5 leading into Secret Wars.

So no prior Marvel movie would be required viewing and then we could explore the other universe of the Sacred Timeline along with the surviving FF. Then Secret Wars is a concept itself.

So I guess TFF could be a jumping on point for new viewers leading into the next Avengers and we would just see the superheroes of the MCU as strange multiversal heroes that the FF need to team up with.

@ObserverIO - Oh they all touch on stuff to some degree but go into Episode IV of Star Wars there was a bunch of backstory we knew nothing about at the time and most the time feels exactly the same with an MCU movie. Sure it touches on a backstory but almost all standalone films have one to some degree too and isn't an issue at all for those non cinematic universe standalone films if the backstory either isn't required to know or what is required is explained in the film.

Scarlet Witch in MoM in a way was like Darth Vader in Star Wars, a very different beast to what Anakin was prior to becoming Sith and NOW folk new to Star Wars could feel the need to watch Ep 1 thru 3 first before 4 but we all once had to jump in at the start of Luke's story instead. If interested enough in the backstory folk could go watch how Wanda became the Scarlet Witch in WandaVision after MoM but didn't NEED to before just as if still invested in Star Wars could go watch the prequels after having seen the original trilogy.

As long as every phase they start one or more new sub-franchises folk can jump in with, those will always be written in a way you don't need stuff prior to see the intro of Blade or the new Xmen as likely to barely mention prior stuff. Even with Avengers movies, we won't be having the original team again so as long as the story for them are self contained isn't like the first four are going to be that relevant realy and I used to read crossover comics without having read most the solo's for characters that appear in them.

ObserverIO - 7/11/2024, 2:49 PM
@Apophis71 - That's okay for one movie, but the second you get to something like Avengers it gets way more complicated because there are characters that have superpowers or are gods, it's not just character backstory, it's concept backstory.

Kids these days don't just jump into a TV show the way we used to, where they would start watching with whatever episode was currently airing on TV. In the age of streaming, kids like to start from season 1 episode 1. They don't like to come in halfway through the story.
Apophis71
Apophis71 - 7/11/2024, 3:05 PM
@ObserverIO - Time will tell but ultimately we're gonna have adults who grew up with this stuff taking their kids to their first MCU movie, already been occuring in fact as those who were teens when Iron Man came out are now in their 30's so...

...if the films are good and do a decent job being accessable to those kids going to their first film those kids will then jump online and start streaming to find out about those backstories, if the films aren't good won't matter either way :D

I'd only watched TWO of the prior MCU movies when the first Avengers film came out, didn't negatively impact my enjoyment, just hadn't been interested enough at the time to watch TIH after HULK and wasn't interested in Captain America at all till that point.

I mean look at how long between an actual kids movie like Inside Out, 9 year gap and the second film breaks the poor BO trend likely cos a lot of the kids who watched the first took their own to the second and it presumably was a good film :D

@ObserverIO @Apophis71 - You guys both make some good points and I think with Marvel and the MCU is that they're going to treat it like they do the comics, which makes sense. Meaning you have a certain continuity going along with various big events and then when it gets to a certain point you do a soft reboot/reset creating a new jumping-on point without negating anything that happened in the past, and I'm pretty sure that point will be "A:SW".

It's like how they are "resetting" the X-Men in a certain way after the "Age of Krakoa" with the "From the Ashes" titles that are coming out. Sure, it doesn't negate what happened before "FtA", but it's a jumping-on point and they'll obviously reference what has happened in the past, but it won't be required reading. Just enhances your experience if you're familiar with what came before. Makes sense to me anyway.
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 7/12/2024, 2:28 PM
@StSteven - That's how they've always done it in the comics. Even DC who have all those Crises and reboots, they're really more like softboots.

But they never really work as well as the comics industry wants them to work. When you look at the most successful relaunches, in terms of attracting the non-comics-reading audience back into comic stores, they have been the post Crisis New Earth stuff, The New 52 and the Ultimate line. Because they are way more accessible in terms of continuity.

Cbms should learn from comics mistakes as well as their successes. One mistake comics keeps making is to hold on to continuity, when they all know that continuity is one of the things that alienates new audiences. But they still can't ever seem to let go of it. And whenever they do make big changes, like The New 52, the older fanbase will always complain so much that they end up changing things back to normal to appease them and lose the masses of new audience members in the process.
StSteven
StSteven - 7/12/2024, 5:31 PM
@ObserverIO - Yeah, it's a difficult balance to be sure between how much you carry over and how starts fresh, and I can totally see why comics companies wouldn't want to completely throw away decades and decades of continuity and history.

The argument could be made that maybe after "A:SW" Marvel SHOULD start a completely new continuity (Ultimate MCU?), but I think that they've built up too much over the last 16 years to want to do that. Plus, while comics readers can understand when a new completely continuity like Ultimate is started, the GA probably won't, like "Why is Iron Man alive again and being played by Zac Effron?", so I just don't see them doing something like that until much further down the line when they've worked through all the corners of Marvel that they can. Like for all it seems that they've done so far, there is still SO much left to go.
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 7/13/2024, 4:41 AM
@StSteven - It's hard for both fans and creatives to let go of something like that. And you're right if they just stopped and then rebooted with a new continuity and younger actors playing the heroes, fans would be like wtf?! But if there's a massive movie like Secret Wars, potentially bigger than Endgame, where the story leads towards a new universe, then it would all make sense for there to be a younger Tony Stark, etc.
StSteven
StSteven - 7/13/2024, 11:00 PM
@ObserverIO - Agreed. So who knows what the plan is after "A:SW". I mean, obviously we know that there are certain NEW things that will be introduced and/or become the focus afterward (i.e. the X-Men, the F4, possible a Young Avengers team, Midnight Sons, etc.), but as far as the OG avengers go, maybe this is where Marvel introduces us to new, younger versions of them, including Tony, Steve, etc., including a new Logan.

I could see the Logan that we meet in "DP&W" end up in the MCU with DP through "A:SW" and possibly sacrifices himself in the climax of that movie to save the MCU or whatever, thereby redeeming himself, and at the end of it all we end up with a new, younger Logan in the MCU moving forward.

I guess that there are SO many ways that they could (and likely will) use "A:SW" to do a soft "reset" of the MCU moving into a new era, possibly with new versions of older characters and such, which doesn't negate anything that came before, but could act as a sort of jumping-on point for new viewers.

Think about this: by the time that "A:SW" hits theaters, the MCU will have been around for about 2 decades and will be something like 30 movies deep (not to mention the D+ shows). That means that there will a considerable portion of the fanbase that wasn't even alive when the MCU started, much less have seen every bit of content that has been put out like the rest of us. So I can totally see Marvel using "A:SW" as a jumping on point, introducing a new Tony, et al but not negating anything from the past so that those of us who've been there since Day 1 will be like "Heh, remember when Tony was played by RDJ?".

Kinda reminds me of Bond (like you guys were talking about earlier), where the 20-somethings today probably have never seen a Bond before Brosnan and have no idea that Connery was ever Bond. On the plus side, for as long as D+ keeps going, the new fans will always be able to go back and watch movies about the OG Tony, Steve, Black Widow, etc. if they want.
