Kind of figured he'd pull the trigger and do it. I'm interested somewhat in the TV series he's doing for Marvel since it'd be the second one that's been talked about (Guillermo Del Toro keeps talking about doing a Hulk series.)
Probably just see him as kind of the puppet master in a sense, observing and watching them over time until he decides to step in. He probably does want to wait and have him tie in to GOTG after that announcement.
I know he said he wants this one to be more intimate and personal, so we may see some actual disarray and trust issues amongst the team, not pushed by Loki's staff.
I didn't want to hope in case that hope turns into disappointment, so this news caught me a little unawares when I saw it pop up on my Facebook news feed. Never has there been a better time to be a Marvel fan.
