  1. I would say $400-450M is a decent bet, as long as it's done well and entertaining. I just don't see Jon Watts pulling off anything higher. As good as he is, he was born and bred out of TV and short films, so I don't know if he can give off that big Hollywood blockbuster movie vibe. I certainly didn't feel it while watching Homecoming. Maybe FFH will prove me wrong.
  2. You're right, they don't really need a Tony Stark replacement; the general audience has already jumped aboard the Marvel train, and characters like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Spidey, who've all made serious bank at the box office, can easily take over the reigns. Each character brings their own uniqueness, so as to avoid feeling repetitive as much as possible. And to be fair about Cumberbatch, he can totally do comedy/snarky/etc. if you've seen his interviews. Studios are still trying to milk his "Sherlock" persona, so he hasn't been in any big roles to showcase it. At the same time, I don't think Marvel is going to reinvent Dr. Strange as a funnyman unless Dr. Strange 2 is a shitshow. Then who knows? They got Waititi on speed dial!
  3. I mean, they "Universed" Unbreakable/Split/Glass; might as well "Universe" anything that turns a profit! Now if only they do a Jigglypuff + Inception mashup. 😁
  4. I think I've figured out the MCU slate for the next 3 years. Here's the deal: whenever a movie is done filming, it's usually released within 8-12 months. Black Widow is filming from June through September. 8 months after September is May. May 2020 - Black Widow The Eternals is filming from September through Jan '20. 10 months later is November. November 2020 - The Eternals 2021 - It'll be between Black Panther (Coogler already signed a deal in October), Dr. Strange (Derrickson signed in December) and Shang-Chi, the latter of which Marvel said they wanted to "fast track," on top of filing over a dozen trademarks in recent reports. Filming is already set to take place in Australia right after Eternals: February 2021 - Shang-Chi May 2021 - Black Panther sequel Nov 2021 - Dr. Strange sequel 2021 - Captain Marvel sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3., and Spider-Man 3 Feb 2022 - Captain Marvel sequel May 2022 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 July 2022 - Spider-Man 3 After Captain Marvel's blockbuster hit, and especially after Endgame left fans wanting more, they have to get a sequel out within two to three years. For Guardians, Gunn should be done filming The Suicide Squad early 2020, so by mid-to-late 2020 they could start filming GOTG Vol. 3. It would be a bit "early" for a 2022 release, but with the slate so full, this is the only other major spot. Spider-Man gets the July date because the first two also had July dates, and you know Sony wants to chug out as many Spider-Man movies as possible. May 2023 - NEW AVENGERS I still think an X-Men and/or FF4 movie will come out before the next Avengers film, or at the very least introduced in one or more of the other previous films. The main lineup would be: Black Panther Captain Marvel Spider-Man Shang-Chi Dr. Strange X-Men and/or Fantastic 4 Side heroes could potentially be: Thor Ant-Man Ms Marvel (introduced in Captain Marvel sequel) Ravagers Blade Inhumans
  5. I was thinking that too, but then the first Iron Man it was his right arm that got punished, so... I dunno.
  6. I think there's a litttttle more wiggle room with Cap since he was frozen for 70 years and had to start life all over again. That's like us waking up in 2089; imagine how much the world will have changed from today.
  7. He does a lot of background artwork too. His main work is Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Black Panther, and the Thor movies, and of course the Avengers flicks.
  8. Absolutely, Rocket in Endgame, Stan Lee's Ragnarok cameo, some fight scenes such as Captain Marvel's armada destruction, Black Panther vs Kilmonger, Rocket/Groot going crazy in the jail... Lemme find his Instagram.... https://www.instagram.com/jwsze/ Enjoy!!
  9. Is it just me or does Jake G look awful in that outfit? A friend of mine designs some of the MCU outfits; hope it isn't him LOL.
  10. That said, I have every reason to believe TROS will make more than TLJ, as long as it's not a giant piece of shit. As someone mentioned earlier, JJ is good with fan service, so he'll make something palatable, tie up loose ends, and try to make as many people satisfied as possible. Had Rian Johnson still been directing, then it would be a completely different story. Seems like most of the haters just don't like him and are not necessarily done with Star Wars. Although, they also hate Rose and have to deal with her too, but that won't affect box office at all unless they thrust her into the spotlight.
  11. The Russos were confirmed to direct both Infinity War movies before Age of Ultron came out. Thus, this leads me to believe they parted ways with Whedon (whether he left/was fired/mutually parted ways) regardless of AOU's box office.
  12. That said I'm seeing it for the 2nd time tonight and will do my absolute best to see if I can find him.
  13. Here's an exhaustive list of who appeared in Endgame and in what context. Kraglin is on there, but still no actual commenters saying they specifically saw him.
  14. Tell me about it! I haven't experienced anything like it either in theaters since maybe Yoda/Dooku lightsaber fight.
