  1. Spider-Man: Homecoming | July 7, 2017 | NOT THE MARVEL-DC THREAD

    I guess this will be the most boring $300 million run ever, kind of like Civil War was the most boring $400 million run ever. The cost of high expectations in the MCU...
  2. That's fair. Perhaps they could have found a way to make an H-Hulk and maybe used a Strange magic symbol to form a different letter.
  3. Marvel has definitely hit their stride, and they're doing so at a time when they're producing movies at the fastest rate they ever have. Enjoy it while it lasts, I say! (Because the Pixar-like dip in quality will eventually arrive.)
  4. (That was a great, memorable JL poster. Meme status sure to be legendary.)
  5. Just try to think how many times you come out of a movie and think, "Boy, that was just way too short." Almost never for me. It's often the reverse.
  6. It will be Sam replacing Cap if they go that route, IMO. One, because Anthony Mackie is a much better and more charismatic actor than Sebastian Stan, capable of carrying his own film. Two, it's a chance for Marvel to instantly add another POC-led franchise to their roster, and what a way to do it.
  7. Well, it is apparently 2.5 to 4 times more expensive than the average reshoot, so take that for what you will. But at least we finally have a way to tell the Whedon scenes from the Snyder scenes! Digital mustache removal.
  8. Joe Russo certainly hinting at a body count in comments over the weekend: “My brother [Anthony Russo] and I believe in stakes. I believe that everything has to have an end at some point in order for it to have value. The audience should be prepared.” I think Vision is probably the best bet as a casualty for the first film. I assume it's Vision that Tony is referring to when he says that Thanos has to come to them. (Strange has got an Infinity Stone too, but he doesn't have to die to lose it.) Hawkeye seems like a prime candidate as well. I think there's no way they're killing off any female characters for real-world reasons, and if they kill Rhodey, he sure ain't going to be the first killed for similar reasons! If they want to lay down their marker and shock everyone, they would kill Tony or Steve in film one, but I think they will save any deaths of their big guns for the finale.
  9. It also does kind of feel like we're reaching the end of Steve Rogers' story, with Sam as his replacement (I would guess). Won't be surprised at all if one of the Phase 4 movies is Captain American and the Winter Soldier, with Sam and Bucky as the leads, and their running story threads in Avengers 3 and 4 to be about living up to Cap's legacy.
  10. The revelation that Captain Marvel is going to be taking place in the '90s, for me, puts even more of a mark on Cap and Tony's backs. She's going to be positioned as a returning superhero veteran poised to take over leadership of the Avengers should its leader(s) fall.
  11. I've watched it zero times and feel my life is somehow lesser for it. (Delayed gratification sucks sometimes.)
  12. ANT-MAN AND THE WASP | 07.06.2018 | Disney

    For me, it was the very thinly defined characters, particularly Scott himself. We're told that he went to jail because he essentially robbed from the rich to give to the poor. Where is that evident in any of his character that we see? I very much sensed that was sort of Marvel sanitizing whatever criminal backstory Edgar Wright had given to Scott, but not altering the character as a result. Hope wants her father to let her pilot the Ant-Man suit, and that is the extent of her character. Same with Hank. He's got two beats, keep his technology from being used for ill means and keep his daughter safe. There's nothing giving the characters any depth. It's all just surface stuff (one of the reasons putting Scott and Hope together at the end feels so ridiculous). I also thought it had by far the least funny and broadest comedy of any of the MCU films. I'm usually an easy mark for MCU humor, but the stuff in Ant-Man didn't work for me at all. Just way too much obvious humor. I'm not writing off the sequel. I assume a lot of its issues in the first were the result of the major retooling the script had to undergo in just a few weeks. I'm hoping they can deliver something more substantial with a longer lead time and no creative changes.
  13. I assume she and Cap are on the run and in disguise after Civil War.
