All through the interview, Gillen noticeably identified that thus far, he’s been speaking about “act one” of this occasion. He was naturally imprecise about what awaits in act two, saying it will barely change the method of the whole occasion. However act three is the place issues would get “extra eventy…The third act actually has a few of the deepest and most Starlin-esque philosophical stuff in there as properly a few of the largest explosions you’ll ever see.”
