Here's what Wizard Magazine thought in 1995 for Avengers casting.

 

If you don't want to see the image:

Howie Long as Captain America

Fabio as Thor

Timothy Dalton as Iron Man

Emilio Estevez as Hawkeye

Paulina Porizkova as Scarlet Witch

Annette Benning as Tigra

 

Some of those are pretty good casting.  Some are... ???

In 1995 the priority for casting superhero roles was looks, not acting ability. 

 

Fabio might have made a great Thor.

Hearing some meh buzz about Loki.  Hiddlestone good actor but bleh boring and sort of confusingly pointless story: everything is predetermined so there's no heroism and no choices.

 

There has been only one episode to far that has been seen by the general public.  Currently, it is running 96% on Rotten among critics (who have seen 2 episodes) and 84% among the general audience who have seen only the first episode.

Or is it? If they take an intelligent path from the first episode, it could be good. If we're to take the first episode at face value, then I think you're right.

 

I'm willing to let it play out.

I find it hilarious that people quote rotten tomatoes ratings any more for quality of anything LOL

 

My point was more that people who had seen two episodes had a better opinion of it than people who had only seen.  However, since you have not seen any episodes at all, you don't really have any grounds to have an opinion one way or another.

I've seen the first episode and thought it showed promise.  As Pattern Ghost indicated it is going to depend heavily on where they go from here.

 

As for the whole predestination thing, that not really how it works.  The Timekeepers selected a timeline to be the one that they keep and defend.  They didn't create the timeline.  The people in the timeline all got to make their choices, to be heroic or villainous.  It is only from the standpoint of the Timekeepers that the decisions are already prescribed.  Just as we can look back on the past and say what happened, but that does not mean that people at the time weren't making decisions, and taking chances and making sacrifices with which they would have to live.

 

Still, it has already been strongly foreshadowed, that Loki is going to try to break the Timekeepers and their organization.  So, that is likely to be a big part of the series going forward.
