“Totally. There is an element of Band of Brothers to this by way of Lethal Weapon.” - Derek Kolstad https://t.co/YP2Fp7R4yd— DiscussingFilm (@DiscussingFilm) August 30, 2019
"The MCU has always thrived in portraying strong friendships and feelings and strong care being felt without words but in action. In contrary, romance in the MCU has been lacking in true chemistry and development for the most part. Will FAWS focus more on platonic relationships?," @xingmi4life inquired.
"Totally. There is an element of Band of Brothers to this by way of Lethal Weapon," Kolstad teased.
