The Site That Shall Not Be Named is now claiming that we will start the coaster off with a backwards launch...I wonder if this coaster will have a lot of BREAKING sections...;)

Remember, Martin did say he didn't show off the whole layout because it has a "cool trick" at the beginning. A reverse and then forward launch is completely possible.
Have a switch/transfer table, short launch backward, then full throttle forward. Kind of like this...

same-ish idea.

*brain fart, vehicles rotate. derp.*

That seems really cool! I think a backward launch would also be an amazing way to simulate being launched out of a Ravager ship's airlock, can't wait to learn more about this ride.

The vehicles rotate. There is no need for switch tracks to do a backwards launch.

SeaWorld’s 2020 coaster is expected to do a forward-backward-forward launch at the beginning of its circuit.

Coming from someone who isn't thrilled about Guardians in Epcot (but as someone who enjoys Guardians and the MCU):.

Is Indiana Jones Adventure dated because Harrison Ford is now 76? Would a Star Wars attraction that contained Luke and Leia from the original trilogy be dated today?
Harrison Ford isn't really Indy in the ride. It's not the same.

And yes.

IMO, of course ;) lol

YES! For once I hope Clickbait is right.
