I WANT to see it. Loki looks really gorgeous, as does Thor ;D
It also looks really action packed and a good laugh. ;D

Loki looks really gorgeous

I'm going to be so confused reading this thread.

BTW, I have not seen the film, nor do I plan on seeing it.

It's currently my favourite superhero movie.

My favourite movie is RotS, so it's probably my second favourite overall.

So, yeah, go see it. This is coming from a guy who knows movies.

Me only problem is: with who shall I watch it? Me mum? Me bro (who will surely be out of money again)? One of you guys?

I also saw it on Preview Day. It was pretty good. Action-packed and hilarious, with solid acting too.
One gripe I have with it is that it felt a bit rushed at the start. I've been reading comics for years, so I know the character and his story, but my dad had no idea what was going on.

My mum and my brother went to go see this at the local cinema on Saturday. They were the only people in there, and then when it finished one of the staff members came through and asked if they wanted it fast forwarding so they could see the extra bit at the end without having to sit through the credits! And then when I got home from work they were all like IT'S AMAZING YOU SHOULD SEE IT. and I'm like BUT I HAVE ESSAYS THAT NEED DOING :(

After The Amazing Spider-Man, this is the movie that I'm most hyped up for. I can't imagine how much money they're going to make, especially from kids who see all of their favourite superheroes in one movie.
Title: Re: Thor
Post by: ravenrune on May 26, 2011, 12:13:48 AM
Just saw Thor. Quite liked it, fave character was probs actually the Gate Guardian bloke, followed by Loki.


Also, Thor is the first film to make me actually spit out my drink because I laughed. It was only a bit, but it was still Fanta all over my coat :( The bit below in the spoiler is WHY i spit my drink out, spoilers because it happens towards the middleish towards beginning of end of the film and i can't judge spoilers for my life

Title: Re: Thor
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on May 26, 2011, 12:35:12 AM
Heh, I'm glad you like it. The Gatekeeper was pretty cool. I liked it when he said that he can't disobey his king but just leaves his staff in the thing for the Warriors Three to get to Earth. I also liked how his eyes were watering when he saw Thor fail to lift the Mjolnir.

Did you stick around for the post-credits scene?

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on July 01, 2011, 02:28:34 AM
Thor 2 has a release date for July 26 2013! Same year as Iron Man 3!

I really can't see a year without two Marvel Studios movies anymore... The Avengers is the only Marvel Studios film released next year but we also have The Amazing Spider-Man so it makes it okay. Also, Kenneth Branagh isn't returning to direct because of the short space between the two movies, but that's just how Marvel Studios rolls and I'm glad their working to get sequels out quickly.

Also, Thor and Captain America are getting exclusive short films on their DVDs featuring Agent Phil Coulson who was in Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Thor. These may be related to the rumours that Marvel was hiring writers to write low budget movies for their lesser known characters like Ant-Man.

Oh, and Chris Hemsworth is the only actor signed on for it so far.

I saw the preview at the end of Captian America, and I know a bit about who's in the avengers, but I was still like: WHOOOOOOOOO, when I saw Thor. Even though he looked moody.

and when Iron man clapped him on the back and said something like: got a nice swing.
or whatever.

I like them all. Though, to be honest, I've never been able to take Captain America too seriously. Dude dresses up like he's the American flag and starts going on about the American way.

It'd probably help if I were actually American. Go Captain Britain, yay! :P

I feel as though they should have skipped out on Black Widow and Hawkeye. I suppose they were added in to police the Avengers as none of the others apart from Cap have recieved military training, and are all very headstrong and dangerous.

Wasp was part of the original lineup. She's a great character but can't be introduced unless they introduced Hank Pym. Hank Pym wasn't introduced as his script is still being worked on by Edgar Wright.

I didn't vote for Hulk, but I liked him in the movie with Edward Norton in it (I can never remember which one that is). It's a new guy playing him now, so I should wait until The Avengers comes out and then I can properly decide if I like him or not.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Kiiyashi on April 01, 2012, 11:14:36 PM
I went for Iron Man, cause he's epic and a genius.
Thor... well, he's just amusing. Wanting a cat large enough to ride...
The Hulk, only going from the latest movie, though the Avengers stuff looks good so far.
Genius Scientists are always nice...

I like how everyone's ditched Black Widow.

Post by: ravenrune on April 01, 2012, 11:50:35 PM
She seemed awesome in Iron Man, but again I don't know enough about her to say I like her. On first impressions though I certainly like her more than Hawkeye.

They'd have had something in the past. Black Widow isn't in this movie as a love interest to anyone.

Although I'm sure that all of them are interested in Black Widow.

Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on April 05, 2012, 06:28:47 PM
Light-hearted 80s style sci-fi/adventure.

Don't think it can really stand on its own two feet, though. If it weren't set in a larger universe the movie would seem a bit empty. It's important to recognise that the movie is just the beginning of Cap's story.

With Thor and Iron Man you got to see Tony Stark truly becoming Iron Man and Thor truly becoming Thor, but this is only half of Cap's journey into how he turns out as a person. The rest of his development lies with how he copes in the lonely future and how it molds him into the brilliant leader he currently is in the comics.

Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on April 06, 2012, 09:17:02 AM
That's the best thing about Cap, he's good just because he's good.

Don't worry about the movie being over-patriotic; it's really not. They had to get this movie sold worldwide, after all. Most of it isn't set in America, a good portion of it is set in England. The only reason Cap is wrapped in the American flag is because he's a proganda figure that they use for newsreels and stuff during WWII.

Quote from: Captain America Facebook page
The famous battle cry in the comic book, "Avengers Assemble!” is a call to arms for members of the team to fight “the foes no single super hero can withstand”.

During production, Chris Evans (Captain America) borrowed the famous command to gather up his fellow cast members when he sent out text messages to them to come together for a night on the town in Albuquerque after a long, hard week of work on the production.

Nick Fury's name pops up in the start of Hulk.
And there's Stark, referencing the Avengers.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on April 08, 2012, 10:24:11 AM
Does anyone else know of any avengers tie ins in the other films?

Iron Man

- Coulson introduces SHIELD
- A prototype or replication attempt at Captain America's shield is seen when Pepper sees Tony Stark as Iron Man when he's trying to get his armour off
- Nick Fury appears after the credits and mentions the Avengers Initiative

The Incredible Hulk

- A document appears belonging to Stark Industries with blueprints for sonic cannons that are used to fight the Hulk on the university campus
- Nick Fury's name appears on the SHIELD database
- Banner's experimentation with gamma radiation was an attempt to replicate Erskine's super soldier formula that was used on Steve Rogers
- Black Widow is present during the attack on the Hulk at Culver University
- General Ross gives Blonsky another replication attempt of the formula which grants Blonksy the peak physical condition that Captain America had (though it is also a failure as his DNA mutates too much)
- Tony Stark appears at the end
- Some time afterwards, Nick Fury excersises his powers to call off the search for Bruce Banner

Iron Man 2

- The Ten Rings (the group that kidnapped Tony in the first film) help Whiplash get to Italy by providing him with tickets and a passport
- Nick Fury, Phil Coulson, Black Widow and SHIELD are central to the movie
- Howard Stark's notebook has a sketch of the Cosmic Cube
- A map of Antarctica can be found with Howard Stark's belongings (this is where Captain America was believed to have crash landed)
- Tony uses the Captain America shield
- At the end when Tony is with Nick Fury you can see a news report from Culver University where the Hulk was attacked
- In the same scene there is a map with red dots around Africa, referencing Marvel's fictional African country of Wakanda where Vibranium (material used to make Cap's shield) and Black Panther originate
- Stark is denied membership in the Avengers and is kept solely as a consultant instead
- Coulson finds Mjolnir after the credits

Thor

- A brief glimps of the Infinity Gauntlet in Odin's Weapons Vault
- Phil Coulson appears along with SHIELD
- Dr Selvig mentions that he had a friend who experimented with gamma radiation and was never seen again because of SHIELD
- Hawkeye targets Thor at the SHIELD base
- Hawkeye is the one who persuades Coulson to let Thor leave the base so they can learn more about him after he spots Jane running away from the site
- Coulson speculates that the Destroyer is one of Tony's inventions
- Loki mentions other paths between worlds other than the Bifrost, which will be a major part of The Avengers
- The remains of the Destroyer were left in New Mexico and are now in SHIELD custody
- Nick Fury brings Dr Selvig in to investigate the Cosmic Cube

Captain America: The First Avenger

- Right from the beginning of the movie, Red Skull makes references to the 'gods', who are actually the Asgardians and other-worlders from Thor
- The Cosmic Cube is a central part to the story and takes Red Skull to another world at the end, possibly a hint at Loki's alternate pathways between worlds
- Marvel's very first superhero from the 30s, the Human Torch, appears in a shot of the Stark Expo in a de-oxygenated tube
- Howard Stark is Tony Stark's father and also has a military contract
- Nick Fury appears at the end

The Counsultant

- Phil Coulson
- Coulson mentions to another SHIELD agent that the World Security Council wants Blonksy involved in the Avengers Initiative
- Coulson explains that Nick Fury is not happy with Blonsky being on the team
- They set up a plan to send Tony (the consultant) to get custody of Blonsky from General Ross (this is why Tony appeared at the end of The Incredible Hulk)
- Tony is described as driving General Ross mad so that he wouldn't give custody of Blonsky over to SHIELD


Another fun fact, Tony Stark tries to name his new element 'badassium.'

A question, are the Avengers/X-Men/Spiderman/Fantastic 4/etc. all part of the same world?

Or are they each from alternative version of Earth with their own super-hero set?
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on April 11, 2012, 02:24:02 PM
In the comics they're all part of the same universe, 616. There are alternate universe comics, such as the Ultimates universe, but they're all usually included in those too.

In the movies, Fox owns F4, Daredevil and the X-Men, Sony owns Spider-Man, and Ghost Rider and Marvel Studios pretty much owns the rest. Universal used to own the Hulk movie rights but they reverted back to Marvel Studios before 2007.

Fox's movies each have their own universe, with an exception of the X-Men.

Sony's movies are also isolated; Spider-Man isn't in Ghost Rider's universe.

Marvel Studios' movies are the only ones with a shared universe.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Dusky The Hermit on April 11, 2012, 03:02:17 PM
OK, because if they're all in the same universe wouldn't one hero's story affect another and vice versa, making all the stories interlink in some way or another.

The two movies so far have just failed to show a good version of the Hulk. Mavel's 2008 movie was acceptable, but it looks like the Hulk will have much more of a personality in The Avengers.

I personally don't really care for another Hulk movie, unless it involved SHIELD characters. I don't like any of the supporting characters from his 2008 movie.

Do you guys think we'll get Avengers 2 in 2015? Marvel will have released another four movies by then, as they have now.

As long as they all equate, I don't mind what movies Marvel releases.

And I don't wanna pay the $1.10 fee per ticket for booking online.
Don't even know who else is coming.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on April 16, 2012, 12:41:55 PM
It's only $1...

Luckily, my cinema doesn't chage extra for online bookings per ticket. So instead of having to pay an extra £3 for all four tickets, I just had to pay £3 for all of them.

Definitely not showing it in 2D...

The 3D for Thor wasn't bad. Nothing special, but it wasn't overly dark and distracting, so hopefully this will be the same as that.

Ah, IGN has quelled my concerns about the 3D:

Quote from: IGN
Note: For those wondering about the 3D, it's fine. This was a planned conversion - not shot in 3D, but with Whedon and the studio always knowing it would be converted after the fact, so at least shots could be conceived with that in mind. I found the 3D to be decent and at least not too distracting (as I find to often be the case), but certainly not necessary. If you see it in 2D, you'll save some bucks and can enjoy this great movie on its own.

Because I don't really like Cap's outfit.

I feel like addressing this because even though I don't mind his new suit in The Avengers, I think that they could have been more clever with it. Their reasoning behind the simplifying of the suit is so that they could get some more acrobatic moves out of Cap that they couldn't with his WWII costume, which is fine, but why didn't they take the principal of him looking like a WWII soldier and translate it into the modern day?

They should have given him the standard clothing and equipment that is used by modern day armed forces:

(http://www.army.mod.uk/images/central-panel/20110712-Cpl_Silva_4SCOTS_410px-U-9004.jpg)

They're flexible enough to pull off head-height kicks so acrobatics wouldn't be an issue. All they had to do was take something like this and paint it with his traditional colour scheme, and he would still look like a soldier and would be able to compete with the rest of the team on the scale of how badass they look.

In the video presentation, Black dubbed the movie a "technological thriller" and a "crisis movie" set in the world of "international war, arms and terror" saying that they will "put Tony Stark through the wringer" as they explore the trials of being Tony Stark. Although no villain has been revealed for the film, he said the villain will be one that will "frighten in today's world." Any idea who he might be referring to?

I think the only main exception to this is when Cap lifted it that one time (in the comics).


Mjolnir has been wielded by a select number of other individuals: alien Beta Ray Bill; Buri (also known as Tiwaz, and Thor's great-grandfather); Avenger Captain America; Eric Masterson; Odin and Borr (Odin's Father); Miguel O'Hara;

The hammer has also been lifted by various sentient constructs (non-sentient machines apparently cannot such as Zarrko the Tomorrow Man's mining robot; the Air-Walker (animated by the soul of Nova Corps captain Gabriel Lan); and the Awesome Android (by mimicking Thor's abilities and worthy nature). The hammer has also been lifted by Earth itself when animated via magical means.

There are also several other non-canon instances of other characters lifting the hammer, including: Conan the Barbarian; Dargo Ktor (Future Thor); Loki; Magni; Rogue (after absorbing the entirety of Thor's life force and thus essentially becoming Thor); Woden; Alex Power; and the DC Comics characters Superman (though he was unable to later that issue and Thor claimed Odin had briefly lifted the enchantment) and Wonder Woman.

Several imitations of Mjolnir have also existed. These include Stormbreaker and the mace Thunderstrike, created for Beta Ray Bill and Eric Masterson respectively. Loki has been responsible for the creation of several imitations – a version of Mjolnir is presented to the mutant X-Men member Storm in an attempt to control her, while another version is given to the mercenary Deadpool to spite Thor. Loki also allows Surtur to use the forge Mjolnir was created from to craft copies during Ragnarok. H.Y.D.R.A. created evil versions of Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye and Thor, the Thor imitator had a technological imitation of Mjolnir. Tony Stark and Reed Richards also create a technological imitation Mjolnir for use by Ragnarok, the clone of Thor, during the Civil War storyline

Tony mentions it, so it's not completely ignored, but Tony's on the team and it's not really brought to attention.

Anyone else want to see Hulk 2? I really want to see a live-action Leader!

(http://www.i-mockery.com/comics/longbox15/pics/the-leader.jpg)

The Leader's not going to happen in the movies. The Avengers Prelude #4 shows Black Widow shooting him and taking him into custody to cure him.

It'd be interesting to see Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk in a solo film, at the least.

They're planning a TV series for him instead.

I really doubt Marvel Studios will be able to pull off a good Hulk movie. The only reason he was great in this one was because he could interact with everyone else.


Okay so I have a question about the Avengers. What was all that talk in Iron Man 2 about Tony just being a sponsor or something? Did they follow up on that at all?

The Avengers Initiative is shut down about a year before this movie begins because the World Security Council just wants SHIELD to focus on figuring out the Tesseract. When Loki arrives Nick Fury desperately recruits as many people as he can, so Tony Stark is accepted.

Yeah.

I want the Hulk to be in Iron Man 3, but I also want Iron Man 3 to return to the grounded setting of Iron Man 1. Either way, I just want the interaction between Banner and Stark to continue. It's awesome.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Perhaps.

But would Tony actually want to help him get rid of it? Throughout The Avengers, Tony has shown an interest in the Hulk and encourages Bruce to embrace it. Plus, the Hulk is an invaluable asset to the Avengers (which I'd assume is being financed by Tony now).

And Dan... You have no right to brag. We got the whole freaking movie over a week before you.


On the subject of a Hulk movie, it's not going to happen until at least three movies after Captain America 2:

Quote from: Kevin Feige
While [Mark] Ruffalo, I think, is more than capable of carrying his own movie, we've announced the next three movies and we're going to announce the next one or two after that and 'Hulk' is not going to be among those.

The Avengers just literally smashed the US opening weekend record with over 200 million dollars. To put this into perspective, HP8 made 169 million and TDK made 158 million.

The Avengers is also the first movie to make 200 million dollars in the US in three days. It took HP8 and TDK five days to make that money.

Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on May 07, 2012, 04:56:01 PM
He wrote a lot of the script for the movie so it was probably personal to him. They cut off about seventy minutes of footage dealing with his origin story and condensed them into the opening credits. After that happened in the editing stages Norton refused to promote the film, so his relationship with Marvel got ugly from both ends.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Dusky The Hermit on May 07, 2012, 05:04:35 PM

Possibly, but only so that Sony don't lose the rights back to Marvel. They made Spirit of Vengeance for that very purpose, and gave it an extremely low budget so that they'd make profit.

Hope they don't, though. The world doesn't need another Ghost Rider movie.

There are too many favourite bits to pick from.

Possibly that ultra-long tracking shot that starts with Black Widow flying one of those alien things, Iron Man flying past her and down to street level where we see Cap pulling off some sweet moves, and then when he flies up and you see Hawkeye aim and shoot an arrow which hits another alien ship which crashes into the Leviathan which Thor and the Hulk are fighting.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Lady Adella Whitaker on May 09, 2012, 07:41:00 PM

One of my favourite scenes was the one in Germany with the violins being the only sound and you see Loki walking down and all the action around him, still being led by the violins.
... It was great xD

She said she'd gone already and that discouraged me, but then she said that it was totally a movie worth rewatching so I asked her today about it and she said yes! This is good because I never, ever, ever hang out with people outside of school, only I want to hang out with her but didn't quite know how. Maybe I can even drive us there and impress her with my skill at operating a motor vehicle!

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on May 25, 2012, 11:24:56 AM
As awesome as it would be to get an Avengers movie every two years or so, there just wouldn't be enough room for the characters to breathe. We got good development from Cap, Black Widow, Loki and the Banner, but what more is there for the characters to do with each other now that they've teamed up and are super friends? They need solo movies to put them through different trials to change them enough to make the next ensemble movie as interesting as this one. This is what the problem with the X-Men movies have been; they focus on one or two characters whilst all the others get supporting roles. Even First Class had this effect. Marvel has also just put so much effort into creating a shared universe that it would be a waste not to utilise the movies to tie together some good storylines.

I say do solo films if there's room for the story progress, but otherwise just get rid of some of the series. Like Thor.

To me, it seems like the only reason they made Thor was so they could subsequently do the Avengers movie. And that's no good. So if I were in charge, I'd say only progress series that have potential and can really develop characters and stories more.

Overall, I do think there are just too many Marvel superhero films though. I dunno though, maybe that's just me. Give it a break, Marvel...
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on May 27, 2012, 05:46:46 PM
QZ4, the only reason Marvel Studios did Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America (basically, all their movies) was so that they could subsequently do The Avengers. Each of these movies set up and developed their characters in a way no other studio would for their superhero movies. They shouldn't scrap any of their current franchises as each one of these characters have fifty years worth of stories to tell. Especially Thor as it's their second biggest moneymaker behind Iron Man.

Marve Studios needs to pump out at least two movies per year as they did in 2008, 2011 and will be doing in 2013 and 2014 because they are their own independent movie studio. If Warner Bros or Sony do at least five movies a year then why can't Marvel Studios do two per year? They need the revenue from their movies to keep them going financially. Plus, most of their leads are signed on for six movies and they need to do them as quick as possible so that these actors can become contractually free once again.

I'm sorry, QZ4, but that was a very ignorant and incorrect statement you made.

Warren Ellis basically confirms that they are using Extremis plot references in IM3:

Thanos is not the Thor 2 villain, even though Loki made a promise to him that he would give him the Tesseract, and failing to do so would mean that Thanos would hunt him down:

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=60573 (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=60573)

Quote
The Avengers was not the finale for us," he reiterates, making it clear that Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble is far from the conclusion of everything the studio has been working towards. "It was a giant, giant marker, but it was never the finale. We are already well into the plan for the next phase of our little cinematic universe." That next phase includes Thor 2, and Feige had this to say about what we should expect from the sequel. "We're going to see the other side of Asgard. It's not all polished and golden in this film. And the events of Avengers will have affected Thor for sure. His relationship with Loki will continue to evolve, and the biggest part is Natalie and Thor returning with Jane Foster."


John Favreau, the director of the first two IM movies, who also plays Happy in all of them, including the upcoming third movie, is remaining as a producer for IM3.

Can't be. Sony owns the rights to Norman Osborn. My guess it that it's just a throwaway thing near the beginning? Tony trying to be flash or something, perhaps something Avengers-related. I seriously don't think they have enough room in this movie with Extremis, Mandarin and the missing daughter in China plots to set up another character who gets his hands on the Iron Man suit, much less explain the motives of having a Captain America paint job.

Just quoting so it doesn't get lost; it's big news.

The film's 'real-world issues' focus on international arms and terror, which I find fascinating.

Iron Patriot was not cool. The Dark Avengers was not cool. It was all lame.

The only way I see this working is if the military pimp up the War Machine armour for some sort of an event. The set pictures show IP with military personnel that are dressed up, so that's the logical explanation.

The good thing about having Coldblood as a villain is that he isn't another Iron Man impersonator. These villains are getting very boring. Iron Man 2 overdid it. I'd rather see IM fighting a cyborg than another suit.

Black Panther is going to look so cool to see on-screen. And then just imagine how cool it'd be to see him in the next Avengers movie.

*drools*

Oh, also, this fits in to the speculation that Captain America 2 leads directly in to the 2014 mystery movie, which is now Black Panther. Black Panther is released just a month after Cap 2, so it'd be logical to assume that vibranium plays a part in Cap 2.

Yeah, I've read that. I only took it as speculation anyway. Latino Review normally get Marvel Studios stuff spot-on, though. I hope they do Black Panther. It's so different anything they've done before.

There are rumours that after Cap and the second movie in April and May 2014, Marvel Studios is planning a third movie for the summer.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Dusky The Hermit on June 07, 2012, 08:49:34 PM
Hmm, sounds good. Mind elaborating though on the character of Black Panther? A bit rusty on him.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on June 07, 2012, 09:09:44 PM
He's the prince/king of a fictional country in Africa called Wakanda. Wakanda was bullseyed on a map shown at the end of Iron Man 2.

The Black Panther is a religious title/name given to the king and protector of Wakanda. In this case, the Black Panther is a man named T'Challa.

The rank of Black Panther can be passed down to offspring, or it can be challenged with a physical fight. T'Challa had a tragic background in Wakanda; his mother dying from giving birth to him and he suffering the guilt given to him by his older brother, as well as his father, who was the current Black Panther, being murdered. He goes to America to study and returns to Wakanda later on in his life where he challenges the current Black Panther and wins.

Thousands of years ago an asteroid containing vibranium, the seemingly indestructable metal used for Cap's shield, crashed in Wakanda and was discovered by T'Challa's father, T'Chaka in recent years. He deemed the vibranium extremely valuable and closed off Wakanda's borders to that it would not be discovered and exploited by other nations. The vibranium is then used as an energy source, which makes Wakanda the world's leading nation in terms of technological advancement. It's a nice spin, having an African country that's richer than the Western developed countries.

Anyhow, an explorer finds the vibranium, creates an advanced gun and kills T'Chaka when T'Challa is a teenager. T'Challa attacked the explorer and destroy's the explorer's right hand. The explorer would then go on to become Klaw, the primary adversary of T'Challa after he assumed the role of the Black Panther.

Eventually, he joins the Avengers.

A Black Panther movie would be a great opportunity for Marvel Studios to slip in some oil crisis and civil rights stuff in there. >_>

Though, The Avengers already did a lot on the subjects of theglobal energy crisis and climate change, but still. Black Panther's movie could make it less subtle than The Avengers did.

Oh, that sounds awfully familliar...

Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Dan North on June 09, 2012, 01:04:30 AM
I agree.

I always love when Tony or Jim switches out the suit for an issue. Just to change things up for a wee bit. But when we return to the classic one I'm fine. If the movie is like a "Special Armor" issue I'll be so cool with that.

So what if the Black Panther movie is a War Machine movie? (My minority argument is deteriorating as I remember Rhodes)

Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on June 09, 2012, 01:08:48 AM
I'd rather War Machine stick with Iron Man or Captain America. Black Panther's movie will have a lot to do to set him up. Maybe after The Avengers 2.

I also want to see War Machine in The Avengers 2. Even if it's just a cameo. At the moment it looks like the only new member will be Black Panther, and he's not enough.

Oh, I think that if Black Panther happens, Cap 2 will definitely lead in to it. They've mentioned it a few times now that the reason the mystery 2014 movie is released only a month after Cap 2 is because of story relevance.

Please explain how I don't know what's going on. I can see a perfectly casual discussion regarding Black Panther, in which ET posts a set of pictures to outline Black Panther's 'badassery', one of which is him as part of New Fantastic Four.

Then you show up and pointlessly insult it and proceed to post a picture of the original New Fantastic Four to 'back up' your statement. ET simply points out that no one cares if what version of the NFF you think is better, because we aren't currently having that discussion right now.

Dusky's explained my post, just listen to him. I posted New F4 picture to show off Black Panther a bit. I didn't care that it was a F4 cover, and neither did anyone else. As you said, I gave no opinion on that particular run of the series, so I don't know why you had to profess that it sucks. It was completely irrelevant, added to the air you seem to give off that anything new is not as good as an original.

Anyhow, I had no idea that I had even posted a New F4 cover. I thought the only second reiteration of the New F4 was the recent Circle of Four storyline, which was a darker and more twisted reference to the New F4 you posted:

How was that Circle of Four story anyway? I love the original New Fantastic Four.

It was decent; I only saw two glaring problems:

- It was told only through Venom issues
- The new Ghost Rider

Circle of Four was conceived as a way of boosting the sales for Marvel's smaller properties, namely the new Ghost Rider, X-23 and Rulk, as their sales were exceptionally low. As Venom is one of the best-selling B-list characters, they told the story through Venom issues. It went through Venom 13, 13.1, 13.2, 13.3, 13.4 and 14. While it was good that the smaller characters would gain larger exposure through Venom books, it was at heart a Ghost Rider story, being set in Hell and all, and it didn't fit in with Venom's world of covert military operations and urban warfare, so it felt really odd and jarring to read.

The new Ghost Rider is awful too. Her name's Alejandra and she's being mentored by Johnny Blaze to use the Spirit of Vengeance carefully. But she falls into a stupid trap against Blaze's advice and opens a door to Hell in Las Vegas. Conveniently, X-23 is in LA to track down some of her stolen blood samples, Flash Thompson is there drinking after breaking up with Betty and Rulk is on orders to capture Flash by Captain America, so they team up to stop a conspiracy from Blackheart to have his own version of Hell on Earth as an act of defiance against Mephisto.

It takes them three or four issues to finally work together, but throughout issues 13.4 and 14, which was packed with the rest of the team doing awesome stuff, she just complained and moped that she caused all this, goes on about how there's no hope left and that the others aren't strong enough, and that got very annoying.

But the chemistry between Venom and Rulk saved the aspect of the team-up. X-23 was kind of vacant, but her action panels were entertaining enough. Blackheart's plot to create his own Hell was an entertaining story, so it never got boring. Not to mention that all of these characters were pushed to their very limits by their antithesis', and by an extension, themselves, as the antithesis are copies of their darker sides. In hindsight, this small, self-contained six issue crossover was much better written than any of Marvel's recent major crossover events like Fear Itself or AvX.

In the future they should just dump Ghost Rider. X-23, Rulk and Venom are a cool enough combination.

That sounds pretty sweet. Are you familiar with the Midnight Suns? That was a similar concept but with a more horror style theme to it.

And I have to take back something I said a while back about the Avengers score. It is really quite good now that I can listen to the entire album. It does occassionally fall into the trap of being just your cookie-cutter blockbuster score but it overcomes that and is a solid score with great character themes.

The themes and motifs for the Tesseract, Cap, Black Widow, Loki, the Helicarrier and the Avengers were good and memorable.

I know they gave Tony a new theme, "Stark Goes Green", but that didn't really do much for me. I prefer to think of that theme as the theme for the movie's allusions to the worldwide energy crisis than a theme for Tony Stark.

Some of the action scoring is good, but it does get generic at times. And the whole score has a tense and dramatic feel to it. There should have been a bit more variety, and it wouldn't have hurt to include all of the Avenger's seperate themes in there, as opposed to just Cap's and a few notes of Thor's.

I just hope they keep the same themes in Cap 2 and Thor 2 as they had from their first movies. It annoys me when they hire new composers who just start fresh, as was with Iron Man 2.

Nah, Cap's good as he is. I expect that kind of flashy unpleasant excrement from Mr Stark. Cap's not flashy like that, but he's certainly not lame. I think perhaps he was maybe still adjusting to everything in Avengers and will be awesome later.


Plus, Hulk did sort of steal the show from EVERYONE.

I'm fine with Cap the way he is too. Even my mum thinks that the action in his movie was the best because it was the most grounded. But in a movie with the likes of Iron Man and the Hulk, I think they should have showed off some more kicks like that.

The Hulk was great. Just wish they shared some of his screentime with Thor. Thor was so distant from the rest of the team throughout the movie that I think he should have caught Tony as he fell at the end, or at least helped him take the nuke up. Did they really have to give the Hulk another crowd-pleasing scene like that?

I think he should have had another round of fights with the Avengers at the end, instead of giving up.

Hulk and Thor would probably have killed him, though.  :D

I think Loki was just a set up for Thanos. If you put it into perspective, Loki just wants to subjucate the people of Earth whilst Thanos wants to kill every single living being in the universe to impress someone.

Hopefully, and probably, Thanos will be much more of a challenge for the Avengers in the next film.

Loki will probably get more room for development in Thor 2. We now also have the juicy subplot of Thanos wanting to kill Loki for losing him the Tesseract. The Other did warn Loki during the movie that there wouldn't be anywhere that he could hide if he failed.


I meant out of the main 4.

You're right. His movie made the least amount of money out of all of them. But he's probably very popular after The Avengers.

Thanos starts killing people to impress Death, who is a female in the Marvel Universe.

For Thor 2, I hope Thor only comes to Earth briefly. Most of it should be set in the different realms. I'd rather it be a full on fantasy movie than a superhero movie.

Considering that in this day and age, English is one of the most spoken languages internationally, I'd imagine they would've understood some of what Loki was saying.

And even if not, his intention was to cause panic and disorder, and promote fear in the crowd. If they didn't know what he was saying, it didn't matter. He got the point across - they are to kneel, he is to stand above them. And certainly they'd know that his intentions weren't exactly good considering the fact that he had torn out a man's eye not moments before - a thing, I must point out, that Loki did not do because he enjoyed the act of it, but rather the panic and chaos it caused - and plus, he was shouting at them. Never a good sign.

I have analysed the ins and outs of this movie, as well as the prequels to it.
Not because I'm doing it for any important reason; I am genuinely such a big fan of it. I could have many debates with you guys on certain aspects of it - a lot of the stuff I've noticed you are saying throughout this thread is inaccurate or you have misinterpretated something. And certainly, I'm happy to correct those points - especially since things like that really irk me. But not right now, at least, when I am on my iPad, as it's uncomfortable to type excessively long posts on this.

Even so, I often stick with people like me anyway - as in, they know the absolute ins and outs of each character and each scene in each movie, so jumping from that sort of community to one that does not seem so sure of itself is disconcerting. (Though, in no way am I trying to demean any of you or speak of you negatively. Please don't assume that I'm trying to be horrible. I'm really not - I'm just far too 'forward' in what I have to say.)

Also; his name is Thanos. THANOS. Okay? He tries to court Death - the female personification of it, specifically. He is often associated with the Infinity Gauntlet.
There are rumours of Amora being cast right now for Thor 2, and certainly at some point we ought to expect to see the Infinity Gauntlet being taken from Asgard - since it is a very important part of Thanos' character, if he is to be a main villian, which there is pretty much no doubt about.

Also, RDJ is now contracted for three more films. Presumably The Avengers 2, 3 and Iron Man 4.

Mark Ruffalo was seen on the set of Iron Man 3 yesterday. A clip also leaked from a VE company with early renders of the Hulk and Iron Man fighting Thanos.

Yeah, it beat Harry Potter. It completely obliterated Harry Potter. Harry Potter deserved it. >_>

Only movies it can't beat are Titanic and Avatar, but it's expected to pass the initial run of Titanic. The re-release this year gave Titanic an extra $300 million WW, though. Hopefully The Avengers 2 will surpass it.

Guardians of the Galaxy is apparently the mystery May 2014 movie. The link has some basic background info in case nobody knows anything about them.

Excited that they're potentially doing this. Very much so. Shame that we're not getting Black Panther, though.

But oh well, this could mean that the GotG will team up in The Avengers 2. Imagine that roster!

Take it with a grain of salt, but Nicole Perlman recently wrote the Guardians of the Galaxy script. She also wrote a Black Widow script that Marvel thought was good.

The Guardians won't be developed enough unless they appear throughout the whole film.


Quote from: IGN
And, of course, there are Rocket Raccoon and Groot. One is a militant, gun-toting space raccoon. The other is a giant tree who only speaks one sentence. Together, they're the greatest action hero pairing in the galaxy. Their inclusion isn't up for debate. Throw in Cosmo the talking space dog and the movie is practically guaranteed to out-gross Titanic.

What's interesting is that this isn't another Marvel Animation movie, but a Disney movie. By Disney. I'm guessing it'll get a theatrical release, as with all of the Walt Disney Animation Studios movies. e.g. The Lion King, Lilo & Stitch, Tangled, etc.

Quote
Marvel’s One-Shots have been used as bonus features on home-video releases for Thor and Captain America, and this one will be available Sept. 25 on The Avengers Blu-ray, with a special screening planned for San Diego next week during Comic-Con.

This is the longest, most elaborate of the Marvel shorts so far, and could be a first step toward using short-subject films to dive deeper into the Marvel universe and introduce beloved but less-familiar superheroes to the mainstream.

Item 47 refers to the gun itself, which S.H.I.E.L.D. would like very much to retrieve from the hapless young troublemakers. “The world is topsy-turvy now. There’s been an alien invasion, and things are crazy,” explains Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, who directed the film himself. “So when this gun ­literally fell into their lap, this is a sign: We’re going to rob a few banks, we’re going to buy a boat, we’re going to the Caribbean, and all our problems will be solved.”

Marvel Studios have pushed the release date of Guardians up from May 16 2014 to August 1 2014. Shame, I was excited about having three Marvel movies in two months. Looks like the TMNT movie will keep that May 16 release date now.

The current Marvel lineup for 2014:

April 4       Captain America 2
May 2       The Amazing Spider-Man 2
July 18      X-Men: First Class sequel
August 1   Guardians of the Galaxy

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on July 13, 2012, 12:23:33 PM
The reviewer seemed confused as to why Iron Man was the one who 'sacrificed' himself to save the world. It was to bring his earlier argument with the Captain about cutting the wire full circle. Cap sacrifices himself at the end of his movie, and the fact that Iron Man does the same thing here shows us that he now has Cap's respect and is now every bit of a hero that Cap is (which was also disputed on the Helicarrier).

Nuclear deterrents, clean energy, imprisonment and the following of orders were all prominent themes, but I couldn't figure out what they were leading up to. It was all very mixed.

I was referring more specifically to this article's theory of an empathy gap.


Quote
The superheroes in Marvel’s ‘The Avengers,’ who can’t pull together as a team and who have no empathy for each other or for humanity, can be a cautionary tale on the state of American public life today. Tony Stark, the “genius billionaire philanthropist” who is “Iron Man,” gets a lot of the good lines in the movie. Captain America, however, is the hero to watch in this film. He struggles with his own psychological scars, and yet tries to pull a team together, and he, at least, gets that the job is not so much “avenging” as it is “protecting.” What does it say about us as a people that he is the odd man out, a throw back to an earlier time?

There’s a lot of fun in this film, but there’s also one serious moral lesson: the “empathy gap” is not really with our leaders, it’s with each other.

The presentation opened with a special introduction by Robert Downey Jr., shot on the North Carolina set of Iron Man 3. Sitting in a bathroom, Downey joked that he's filming the movie's "toilet escape" scene and that he's sorry to miss the Comic-Con crowd.

The short itself runs 12 minutes and stars Jesse Bradford and Lizzy Caplan as Benny and Claire, Marvel's answer to Bonnie to Clyde. They've recovered one of 47 Chitauri weapons left behind after "The Battle of New York" and have decided to use it to go on a bank-robbing spree. Maximillano Hernandez returns as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Sitwell and we're introduced to Titus Welliver's Agent Blake. They've been tasked with bringing in the fugitives.

Without delving into heavy spoilers, it's safe to say that Item 47 is the most fulfilling of the "One-Shots" so far and manages to explain a lot of the questions fans have already been asking (e.g. there's a reason this one Chitauri weapon is still working) but connections to other Marvel Studios projects are few and these new characters are not necessarily being set-up for anything further down the line.

During a brief Q and A after the film, however, there was an interesting hint about the future of the Marvel cinematic universe. One young fan asked about Ant-Man making a big screen appearance and was told that he better head to tomorrow's Iron Man 3 panel. The odds are more likely than ever that we'll be seeing some of Edgar Wright's test reel. Check back tomorrow as we'll have live updates from Hall H.

IGN is hearing that Thor 2 will be titled Thor: The Darkest World. The title will be revealed during today's Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con panel in Hall H. We hear there may even be some footage from the film shown. (We'd imagine it might be visual effects/proof of concept-type stuff.)

At least four of the six Avengers will definitely return for the sequel, and they'll need to be set up again since there's going to be changes to them in their solo movies, and having five new characters will just be so messy in terms of interactions.

I'd choose Gamora and Rocket Racoon. Gamora because she's Thanos' daughter, and Rocket Racoon because it would be so badass to see him with Iron Man. Just imagine the banter. I would choose Adam Warlock, but he hasn't been announced for the Guardians movie.

Some pictures (I'm not sure which lineup they're using, but Feige did say it was the 2008 team a few years ago):

And apparently the plot for Guardians and The Avengers 2 will borrow from The Thanos Imperative (which features more cosmic characters, not just the Guardians):

I have had a couple of minutes with Marvel since 'Avengers,' and they have the screenplay, he said. We're waiting for a particular writer to do a rewrite on the pilot. That's where we are right now. But we're still on.

@Malice: I saw that a few days ago. It made me smile :3

Something else was also pointed out to me on Tumblr: Apparently in the scene where Tony says about how he likes the way Bruce turns into The Hulk, when they first meet on the Helicarrier, you can see Bruce's reflection in a screen behind Tony, and his reflection is The Hulk.

I haven't seen The Avengers since that was said to me; I've only seen GIFS, so I don't know if it's true or not, but if it is, hats off to Joss for throwing that in there ^.^

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on July 23, 2012, 08:38:14 PM
I don't agree that Tony stopped Bruce from being a monster in Hulk form. Bruce mastered control of the Hulk at the end of his solo movie where he achieved transformation via meditation. The only reason he was violent on board the Helicarrier was because he was under Loki's influence. They all were.

The reflection thing isn't true. Ruffalo and the Hulk just look like each other.

A letter sent to residents in the Bourne Woods area:

Quote
We are writing to let you know about some filming about to be undertaken in Bourne Wood in the coming months. Please find a brief overview and introduction to this project.

"Thursday Mourning" is the working title of a major feature film. It is comic book adaptation set in another "fictional realm".

We will be establishing a fictional village set in another realm, with yurts and village like dressing in the bowl. The sequence involves a battle between two kingdoms, ending in our comic book hero arriving to save the day. The sequence will involve a substantial amount of Stunts and controlled special effects all within the hours 0700 - 1900hrs.

We plan to use most of the areas that are usually occupied by film units for all our support vehicles. The sequence will involve approximately 300 extras who will arrive in the early hours prior to call time to go through costume and makeup.

According to the Latino Review (via Svarthofdi), Thor 2 helmer Alan Taylor is no stranger to the island country; the director spent some time filming there during his stint on HBO's Game of Thrones. When asked about filming there for the fantasy series, Taylor said, "We feel amazing to travel to a world that looks like those we are trying to create. It gives us all inspiration."

Sounds good. Game of Thones has epic sets and Thor would benefit from something like that.

Guuuuuys!

Yesterday, Fox offered Marvel/Disney the rights to some F4 characters in exchange for an extension for their Daredevil rights, which runs out on October 10.

Now Deadline says that Marvel/Disney don't want the character rights and aren't interested in extending Fox's deadline. Apparently Joe Carnahan is in negotiations to direct Daredevil now, but Fox is 'lukewarm' about rebooting Daredevil and apparently they'll just let it go unless Disney can co-finance. With Disney co-financing I'd assume that they'd get some rights to use Daredevil in their movies and have some creative control over Fox's movie.

I think Marvel/Disney should just take the rights to Galactus, the Silver Surfer and Doctor Doom. They can use any of those characters for The Avengers 2 or Guardians, whereas they wouldn't do a Daredevil movie until at least after The Avengers 2.

Anyway. ET's post in the Amazing Spider-Man thread reminded me of something about the Avengers. Unlike the Amazing Spider-Man it's New York City was completely accurate. The final fight scene took place in the three blocks by Grand Central Station which is actually a very small area of the city and was depicted accurately in the film. Unlike the Amazing Spider-Man they did not cheat with the city in this.

"Joss Whedon has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015. As part of that deal, Whedon will write and direct Marvel's The Avengers 2 as well as help develop a new live action series for Marvel Television at ABC. He will also contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe."

So it definitely sounds like we'll be getting The Avengers 2 in 2015.

*puts salt pot on table*

Ain't It Cool apparently have a description for the trailer for IM3:


Quote
It opens with a voice over of Tony Stark talking about how the events of New York (I’m assuming the Avenger Movie) changed him, and how he’s just not “into it” anymore.   First scene is Iron Man with battle damage,  laying down amid rubble and taking of his faceplate to show a bleeding Stark. Scenes of him arguing with Pepper Potts in the armory  (cool shots of alternative Iron Man suits including the red white and blue one we’ve seen on your site already),  press conferences, Tony looking solemn, Tony talking with someone who looks like a psychiatrist, and a short shot of Don Cheadle in military uniform (no War Machine in the preview).  Also one scene of who I presume is the Mandarin, forcefully landing and cracking the ground.  However, it looked like a silver Iron Man.  I was unable to tell in the brief view who it was  (maybe due to  unfinished CGI).

We then get a voice over from Ben Kingsley, talking about how there there are no heroes and how he will teach everyone, especially Stark, a lesson.  This is over scenes of the alternative Suits getting blown up, Stark going into surgery, and a fleet of helicopters launching missiles which blow Stark’s home up and apart  (the CGI looked nearly finished) and sending Stark and Pepper into the sea below.   Then a close up of Kingsley with no helmet in the Mandarin armor.

It ends with Iron man underwater swimming towards what looks like his “heart reactor thing”.  Then the logo, then stark walking in the snow dragging a large bag, then the logo again.

All and all, a somber trailer, dark and  humorless, which seemed more in tone with  The Dark Knight Rises than with any of the other Iron Man movies or the Avengers.

Is IMDb here when I mentioned officialness? No. It's not.

I don't have a source, but I heard that the filming for IM3 has been postponed for a little bit because RDJ hurt his ankle whilst filming a stunt.

Not sure if true or not, haven't had time to verify.

^ Yeah, that's true.


Avengers 2 is out May 1 2015. We only have to wait three years.


Quote
Following the announcement that Joss Whedon is returning to write and direct Marvel's The Avengers 2 (Marvel Studios and Disney say the film is still untitled for now) comes official word that the release date for the sequel has been set for May 1, 2015. There is no other movie scheduled for that date yet.

The team-up sequel will be preceded by Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014 and Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014.

His comment about officialness was unrelated to the IMBD thing. He meant something along the lines of a trailer being officially announced.

And really, even if IMBD isn't the most trustworthy source for information, it's not as if they'd put a fake trailer up.

Some casting news for Cap 2:

Quote
Sources say the studio’s now focusing on casting the film’s female lead. Hollywood insiders tell us that current front-runners for the coveted role include “The Twilight Saga” star Anna Kendrick, as well as Felicity Jones.

And James Gunn in talks to direct GotG:

Quote
The Hollywood Reporter claims Gunn is the only filmmaker Marvel is now talking to about directing the sci-fi team flick slated for release August 1, 2014. THR says no deal is set yet with Gunn.

Other contenders are said to have included Bring It On's Peyton Reed (who was once attached to direct Fantastic Four way back when) and Half Nelson's Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is playing Kurse/Algrim in Thor 2!
Quote
In the comic books, Algrim the Strong was the most powerful of a race of Dark Elves, who is coerced by Malekith to fight Thor. After he's betrayed by Malekith and injured during a battle, Algrim is healed and transformed into a much more powerful being called Kurse, who is twice as a strong as Thor.

I did an incredibly large amount of scientific research. I told the staff “Find me words that sound science-y”. I was an English major in college, so I approach movies from a very emotional perspective. At first I was literally writing “Science, science, science” in the dialogue and going back and to fill in the proper wording later. It was purely by good luck that there wasn’t anything in the movie that wasn’t based in realistic practice or theory.
This amuses me.

We over here at LR have been vaguely aware of an action scene where Tony was going to control multiple Iron Man suits (presumably they look similar to distract his enemies as to the location of kill-able Iron Man Prime), but the number 40 seems…awesome. 40 Iron Men.

James Gunn will write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy. I've never seen any of his films, so I don't know what to expect.

Quote from: James Gunn
For a month or so there’s been a lot of Internet speculation about my involvement with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Until now I haven’t said anything, because I’m trying to be less expulsive about this project than I am about the rest of my life. But last night I got the go-ahead from Kevin Feige to let you all know that, yes, indeed, I am rewriting and directing Guardians of the Galaxy. As a lifelong lover of Marvel comics, space epics, AND raccoons, this is the movie I’ve been waiting to make since I was nine years old. Kevin, Joss, and all the folks at Marvel have been amazing collaborators so far, and we’re committed to bringing you something majestic, beautiful, and unique. I am incredibly excited. I am also incredibly grateful to the fans and the press for all their words of encouragement and support regarding my involvement with this project since the news first leaked. Thanks – you have, honestly, touched and overwhelmed me. And that’s it for now. Other than the occasional photos of my dog and cat here on Facebook, I’ll talk to you again in August 2014 when Guardians is released!

Quote
When asked about the sequel's plot, Evans remained coy, but revealed that it will shed further light on his character by including scenes cut from The Avengers. He told Collider: "The most I am looking forward to is exploring a little bit of Steve's… they had all those deleted scenes with The Avengers because a lot of those scenes are for Captain 2, you know what I mean? It was good stuff, but it all felt like that was his story. It is a different movie. With The Avengers there was so much to cram in. Like I said, it was a long movie anyway. So I think making it any longer would have just been exhausting."

Continuing, Evans explained that the unused scenes are better suited to a film that can focus on his character properly. He explained: "A lot of that stuff [that was cut] is for Captain America 2. That is his story. It is him trying to on a personal level adjust to the fact that everyone he knows is gone... There are a lot of things that he kind of has to come to terms with."

This is great.

Oh gosh. Iron Man fused with Captain America.

*Iron Patriot.

He's not really Iron Patriot. Just War Machine.

who is totally desperate to get into the next Avengers film


Edit: I just realised that the last shot of Tony walking in the snow, dragging the armour behind him, is similar to the scene where he's rescued from the desert in the first film. Was he dragging something then? I haven't seen Iron Man since before The Avengers, so I don't remember.

'SHIELD' has been renamed 'Agents of SHIELD.'

Quote
Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, Marvel's The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).

Also, the Heartbreaker armour (Mark XVII) looks really cool. According to a LEGO set Tony wears it against the Mandarin:

I think there are too many similarities to be drawn between Nova and Green Lantern for them to make a Nova movie.

James Gunn talks about Rocket Racoon:

Quote
"I do think we’re very, very different from Star Wars. Some of the concept art that came out is under my tutelage, and some of it is before my tutelage. The concept art that came out is only stuff that was on the big Marvel collected disc set, talking about phase two and it had some stuff from Guardians. Some of the art by Charlie Wen and the guys. The Rocket Racoon that was by itself was an early version of my Rocket that I dealt with Charlie when developing. He doesn’t look so much like that anymore, but there’s a lot of similarities in that he’s more of a grounded, real little creature as opposed to a cartoonish thing.

I’ve done a lot of studying with real racoons, and we had real racoons come in. We’ve done photography with them, I’ve played with racoons, and fed racoons, and dealt a lot with real racoons to get some of the behaviour down, because it’s really, really important to me that Rocket Racoon, who is the heart of the movie, is not a cartoon character, it’s not Bugs Bunny in the middle of The Avengers, it’s a real, little, somewhat mangled beast that’s alone. There’s no one else in the universe quite like him, he’s been created by these guys to be a mean-ass fighting machine."

And about Chris Pratt as Star-Lord:

Quote
"I was very specific that I wanted it to be somebody really extraordinary. I really had Robert Downey Jr. in mind a lot. You had this guy who came in and he inhabited Tony Stark, when you first saw Tony Stark he blew your mind, you couldn’t believe what you were seeing. I knew that I needed somebody to blow my mind like that. We saw a lot of very famous guys for the role, a lot of very well-known people, and very, very good actors. We saw a lot of good performances, but it wasn’t until Chris came in and he read and I was like, ‘oh my God’, this guy has his own, very particular, amazing take on the character that blew my mind, blew me away. Then I thought, this is the first guy I could see sharing the screen with Robert Downey Jr. and giving him a run for his money."

And about similarities with The Avengers:

Quote
"In some ways yes, but in some ways no. In terms of a lot of stuff we’re very much like The Avengers, where it’s a very big, huge movie. It’s different because it’s cosmic, it’s in outer space, it’s very colourful. We have a whole history of science fiction behind us that we’re dealing with, and borrowing from, and also fighting with to create something unique. But at the same time there’s a lot of stuff it has in common with The Avengers."

Quote
Several Avengers cast members reportedly remain unsigned for the sequel, with such major contractual issues as upfront pay, backend compensation, break even points and box office bonuses still on the table.

According to Deadline's Nikki Finke, "I’ve learned Marvel already has threatened to sue or recast when contracts and/or options are challenged. That prompted a few cast members to respond, 'Go ahead.' I hear [Thor star Chris] Hemsworth especially wasn’t anxious to go back into that arduous diet and training regimen and subsist primarily on egg whites for Thor: Dark World which hits theaters November 8th. I also understand that Scarlett Johanssen [sic] told castmates she’s 'not going to cut her quote' for Marvel’s Avengers 2."

Hemsworth isn't signed for Avengers 2, but Captain America star Chris Evans is said to have already been signed for the film while negotiating for his original Cap contract.

It could only be a rumour, but all the cast better be coming back.  >:(

I wouldn't mind recasts at the start of a phase, but you can't just start Phase 2 with Hemsworth, RDJ and Chris Evans and then not have some of them reprise their roles for The Avengers 2. With Bruce it was acceptable because of the large gap between TIH and The Avengers.

I also thought that both Hemsworth and Evans were signed on for six movies. Apparently it's only Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans who are.

And Marvel/Disney should just pay them what they want. They're going to be making a lot of money anyway...

Well, the original word for valkyrie was valkyrja.

Yes, I know this valkyrie exists. I'm named after her. ;) But since English speaking people can't pronounce a proper Ü, I chose the writing with y which comes close.

Well, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are all street level superheroes, which we haven't seen from Marvel since Fox's Daredevil movie. Most superhero films nowadays are large-scoped and deal with global/cosmic threats (The Wolverine, The Amazing Spider-Man and Dredd are the only exceptions I can think of, but even then Wolverine and ASM weren't street level movies). The only street level superhero being adapted at the moment is Arrow. The upcoming World's Finest movie probably won't feature Batman doing any street level stuff (and niether did The Dark Knight Rises for that matter), given the large global engineering plot of the first movie.

The good thing about Netflix is that they don't have to worry about viewer ratings, so these shows can go as dark and gritty as they want. I'm going to assume that they retain some humour (and I hope they do), but with a character like Daredevil and the backdrop of Hell's Kitchen I think Marvel will push this further into darker territory than their movies.

The Defenders in the comics traditionally consisted of the Hulk, Namor, Doctor Strange and the Silver Surfer, but the core focus on the characters teaming up despite being considered 'outsiders' and bad team workers will probably remain the same. I know this was Nick Fury's mentality when assembling the Avengers (describing them as 'isolated'), but the Defenders take it a step further with its roster of characters usually being anti heroes. I think 'Heroes for Hire' featuring Daredevil would have been a more appropriate title, but 'The Defenders' is probably more marketable as it resembles 'The Avengers.'


A Daredevil series...

Well, it can only improve on the last film.

Yeah. Would rather Marvel had got the rights back to the Fantastic Four, though. When Fox lost the rights to Daredevil Marvel offered to extend their contract in return for characters such as Galactus and the Silver Surfer, which would work great for future Avengers/cosmic movies.

Thor 2 was like Thor but shinier and more entertaining. It was what a sequel should be, in my opinion. It improved on the original. (Even if it was just a stepping stone to introduce the idea of Infinity Stones to non-nerds, and to progress the Thanos/Infinity Gauntlet arc.)

Except the Infinity Gauntlet story didn't make any progression until the mid credits scene.

I agree with you that it was 'shinier' in that the comedy and visual effects were much better this time round, but the story was not up to standards for a superhero movie sequel. They had fifty years of Thor stories to draw from and the best they could do was the cliche villain wants to destroy the world story. On top of this, it just didn't have the emotion or heart that the first film did. Just including some of Patrick Doyle's themes would have gone far. Sadly this is the first movie to shake my trust in Marvel Studios, and I'm making sure not to get too excited for The Winter Soldier.

However, as much as people complain about the amount of comedy in Marvel films, I think that it actually saved Thor 2 for me. Without the comedy it would have been an immensely unpleasant experience to watch.

But the movies are a different canon.

Odin reminds Loki that they are not gods at the beginning of the film.

Still, your point makes sense. Loki is a trickster.

OH MY GOSH THAT LOOKS AMAZING.

Also, I've made a checklist of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that I need to watch.
Currently, I only need to watch The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3.

ABC announced today at the TCA panel that Thor and Thor: The Dark World star Jaimie Alexander will guest star as Lady Sif in the upcoming 15th episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." The only info revealed about the character's appearance was that she has "come to Earth with a very specific mission." Check back for more updates on the matter at we learn them.


I'm so excited for this. She (and the Warrior's Three+Heimdall) got short changed in The Dark World. This should make up for it.

Paul Rudd is playing Scott Lang, the modern day Ant-Man.

Michael Douglas is playing Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. His parts of the move take place in the 60s, I think.

Terry, right now she's the only female member of The Avengers. I'm pretty sure that Marvel would get a lot of unpleasant excrement if she was cut out.
And also, she hasn't been given enough screen time for us to properly get to know her yet. It's not like she has her own movie...

New poll.

A friend and I were discussing the new Thor film (he loves it, I hate it, funtimes were had), and now I'm curious what people thought of the scores.

I voted for the first film's because the theme is used in a variety of ways, whereas in the second it's just used loudly and doesn't change. It's still badass, though. Just weird that they reprised the melody from the first movie's prologue as well as Cap's theme, but not Thor's.

Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on March 23, 2014, 06:15:15 AM
Loki isn't in The Avengers 2. We'll have to wait until Phase 3 for a resolution, I think.

Thanos is in Guardians of the Galaxy, so maybe Loki (and his loss of an Infinty Stone) will get a mention there.

If that subplot just ended with Loki faking his death, that's pretty disappointing.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Dregran Entropy on March 23, 2014, 06:22:13 AM
Huh. They banana'd up then.

Hopefully there's something more to that subplot... And like seriously Thor is not going to hear it or know of it until a crucial moment right? Not going to be mentioned during the Avengers 2 or probably ever again.

IT'S SO GOOD!!!

They really kept the whole political thriller thing going right up to the end. Black Widow and Captain America's friendship is very well developed, and Falcon is so likeable. The three them of them are like a mini-Avengers team. They're so awesome.

There's quite a few plot twists and characters doing things you wouldn't expect. Major excrement hits the fan in the last act when a certain character decides to do a certain something, and it shakes up everything completely. For the 'status quo shattering' events Marvel does each year, this one takes it a step further, and there really isn't a way to go back. It'll be very interesting to see where all the characters are at the start of Age of Ultron. It also put some of the other movies in a different light, but you have to think about it.

The whole thing about the recent NSA scandel and the Big Brother world we live in is touched upon, and the way the villains utilise it is scary as. They didn't shy away from anything, and went deeper into exploring those themes than The Avengers did with its derrence message.

The Winter Soldier himself is a pretty intimidating villain, and the emotional ties to Steve are devestating. The first time he shows up, it's so creepy.

There's a part from the original book which was my favourite, where Steve reads the Winter Soldier's file and has a flashback to when he's sitting in a theatre with Bucky, and they're watching a newsreel of themselves, and Steve thinks to himself that Bucky is his only friend and stuff. They loosely adapted that. The scene's quite different, but it has the same emotional impact and theme.

The action was insane. There's not as much CGI, but the hand to hand combat is so well done. Cap uses his shield in such a variety of ways, some I think I haven't even been done in the comics. He also does a lot more acrobatic stuff, and his fighting style looks lethal and completely badass. Joss Whedon should take notes, because his stuff was really lacking in The Avengers.

The film also spent a little bit of time focusing on Steve's adjusting period to the modern world. Really, the whole movie is about this, with him being confused and concerned over the secrets SHIELD, Nick Fury and Black Widow keep, and the grey world they operate in, but the beginning basically makes up for that long scene that was cut from The Avengers. There's also a certain character near the beginning that takes a very sorrow turn. Bring tissues. >__>

Also, the characters in this film, heroes and villains, use real guns and bombs (unlike Agents of SHIELD) and the violence and death really adds to the suspenseful tone. This puts Agents of SHIELD to shame. It's actually quite hard to see the main crew of that show as real SHIELD agents after seeing the ones in this film. But I am looking forward to seeing how the show is going to deal with the fallout from this movie, because there's no doubt they're all affected by it.

The music wasn't great, but it fit the tone. They reprised Silvestri's theme for the opeing scene of the film (but it isn't on the soundtrack release), so at least there was some musical continuity between the first film, The Avengers and this. It's also used once very subtly at the Smithsonian where Steve's walking through the Captain America exhibit. Hopefully this means it'll be back for the next Avengers film too, and they ditch the theme Henry Jackman did for this, which didn't fit the character at all.

There's two credits scene like with Thor: The Dark World, and the mid-credits one is directed by Joss Whedon (like the first Thor's post-credits scene was). It sets up one of the plots for Age of Ultron, and it seems like The Winter Soldier leads straight into it. It's pretty cool that this movie was like a sequel to The Avengers with its focus on SHIELD, and that it also leads straight into the next one.

I'm probably missing a lot, but whatever. I wasn't expecting much after Thor 2, but they got this movie absolutely right.

If I had to rank it among the others, it'll be something like this:

1. The Avengers
2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
3. Iron Man 3
4. Iron Man
5. Captain America: The First Avenger
6. The Incredible Hulk
7. Thor
8. Iron Man 2

- Thor: The Dark World
- Mortal Coil



For the poll, I chose Guardians, Age of Ultron and Luke Cage.

Before seeing The Winter Soldier, Guardians was my most anticipated, but damn, the ending really has me excited for Age of Ultron.

Guardians will be nice for some tonal variation. The Winter Soldier was quite intense, and I'm sure Age of Ultron will be too. It'll be a nice breather in between.

Luke Cage, I'm looking forward to all of them equally, but I like him more than the others. :p

Guardians will be nice for some tonal variation. The Winter Soldier was quite intense, and I'm sure Age of Ultron will be too. It'll be a nice breather in between.

Luke Cage, I'm looking forward to all of them equally, but I like him more than the others. :p

Definitely seeing the next Spider-Man in IMAX, though. I saw the first one at BFI London.

I'm glad I only seem to be coming into contact with the saner/sensible ones then. Marvel fandom is pretty big, so I wouldn't be surprised if there's part of it that behaves in a similar way to that part of the Sherlock fandom that I want to avoid. tbh, sometimes I'm so wary of getting into something and then discovering the fandom on Tumblr because if its something that's vaguely popular there's bound to be something i find that I just want to get away from.

"A team so good, it's almost criminal."

That made me laugh.

Honestly though, Ronan's "I will destroy you and your world" line gave me awful flashbacks to Malekith's weak motivations in The Dark World. I hope the villain isn't just as generic here, considering how great Robert Redford was in The Winter Soldier.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Ditzy on July 08, 2014, 11:53:17 PM
Well, we can only hope. Joss Whedon thinks James Gunn will make it all work, and let's face it, Joss is totally awesome.

Quote from: Joss Whedon
You know, James is what makes me think it will work. I myself was sort of like, ‘Well, I liked Rocket Raccoon as a kid, but I’m not sure how that plays [to a wider audience].’ And then they said, ‘Well, we’re thinking about using James Gunn.’ And I said, ‘Oh, then no, you’re fine.’ He is so off the wall, and so crazy, but so smart, such a craftsman and he builds from his heart. He loves the raccoon. Needs the raccoon… This is the guy who wrote ‘The Specials’ which is one of the most important movies… People don’t understand how influential that movie was about heroes, about taking heroes and making them mundane. And [he directed] ‘Super’… He has a very twisted take on it, but it all comes from a real love of the material so you know he’s going to make the Raccoon… It’s going to be hard for the humans to keep up.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on July 09, 2014, 12:00:23 AM
Sure, but Joss Whedon can't exactly say anything negative when he's on Marvel's payroll. Pretty sure he oversold The Dark World a few times too.

I loved Gunn's 'Super', but don't forget that this is a Marvel movie too. If they want a generic villain that'll get the job done and set up sequels then that's what they'll have.

Don't want to jump the gun or anything, though. Maybe he'll be pretty good.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Ditzy on July 09, 2014, 12:06:04 AM

The main message of Iron Man 3 is that Tony is Iron Man, with or without the suits. He destroys his suits to prove that, but nothing is stopping him from building more.

According to new story details, he has another legion of armours in AoU, one of which becomes Ultron.

I think it would be funny if there was a passing reference to him or something.

Iron Fist is awesome too though, to be fair.
It's pretty ironic that the comic book versions of Black Panther, Luke Cage, and Nick Fury are three of my favorite fictional characters ever. Comic book Nick is pretty damn white though. But Black Panther is just absolutely... UGH. It's so good and he's so awesome. I love it. I love it. I love it. And Luke Cage is just a complete badass and to say I am excited for his Netflix series would be an understatement.
I really feel like those Netflix series were made with just me in mind because the Daredevil series seems perfect so far and Daredevil is a character I like even more than Luke!! So much greatness!!!
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on July 21, 2014, 02:24:05 AM
Thirteen hours of Daredevil is pretty exciting too. That's, like, six movies.

I wish the Netflix shows were getting done sooner. Can't wait for Luke Cage and Iron Fist. The Defenders will basically be Heroes for Hire with Daredvil and Jessica Jones thrown in. I really want Terry Crews to play Luke Cage.

Can't wait for Agent Carter either.

And for someone who was EXTREMELY sceptical of James Gunn directing this, I stand corrected in how good it is, it definitely makes it to my top favourites and tops most Marvel films this year. It was good to see Rocket and Groot animated so greatly, and there was so much emotion shown between the two of them, and Earth was hardly mentioned! The galaxy was actually traversed!

Idk how I feel about Quill using one of his father's aliases when in this filmverse he doesn't know who his father is? So "Star Lord" just came out of nowhere? Also,

Marvel might finally be doing The Inhumans.  ;D

Quote
According to our sources, Marvel plans to handle The Inhumans in the same way they handled Guardians of the Galaxy.  For those who don’t know, the original draft of Guardians was written by Nicole Perlman, who was part of Marvel’s writing program.  That draft then went out to filmmakers.  When James Gunn came on board, he added his flavor and details to the story, but the characters, story structure, and beats from Perlman’s draft remained in place.

There was a Sonic the Hedgehog writer who tried to copyright characters he created under a work for hire contract, and actually seems to have gotten his way with a settlement. His characters haven't been used by Sega or Archie since, and he's planning to write his own books featuring them.

It's rare, but it happens. Not in this case, sadly. I didn't mind the cameo, it was funny, but it does seem a bit disrespectful.

No, but in all honestly, I feel like the story for IM2 is waayyyy better than the first, it just feels more alive opposed to 'Guy gets kidnapped, turns into super hero, the end'.

I liked that Iron Man 2 continued the theme of accountability, something which Iron Man 3 seemed to drop completely. The middle did drag a bit, though. It's kind of like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in that respect.

The worst part for me was the score. Along with Henry Jackman's Cap 2 score it's my least favourite of the MCU.

Iron Man 3 was exploring Cap's question from The Avengers: "Big man in a suit of armour. Take that off, what are you?" Having Tony have access to his suit the whole way through would invalidate that.

For reference, IM2 only had three action sequences featuring Iron Man. In IM3, by my count, there were two larger sequences with the Mark 42 suit, a few with the Iron Patriot suit, and a large set sequence with the entire Iron Legion. I've never understood the "barely any Iron Man" complaint.

Robert Downey Jr is playing Iron Man in Cap 3:

Quote
The new pact is significant for the Marvel cinematic universe considering the plot will pit Stark against Captain America’s alter-ego Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities.

Stark supports the program, but Rogers does not, saying it threatens civil liberties, causing sides to be taken and Rogers, among others, to go on the run to avoid arrest. The moral question and battle with his Avengers teammate essentially makes Stark a villain of sorts in “Captain America 3,” providing Downey with a meaty role he could play out into future Marvel films, including a fourth “Avengers.”

http://variety.com/2014/film/news/robert-downey-jr-to-join-captain-america-3-exclusive-1201312229/

The probably won't follow the Civil War storyline as faithfully as that article makes out. The Winter Soldier wasn't a direct adaption of the book and neither is Age of Ultron. Nonetheless, I hope they don't make Tony as unlikeable as they did in the book. He's playing the antagonist so they have to be careful with that. It'll also be hard to pull off faithfully without Spider-Man, who humanised the story and arguably suffered the most from it.

Daredevil is a thirteen episode show on Netflix starting next May. It's going to be followed up by Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones, concluding with a team up series featuring all of them.

He's the guy who played Bullseye in that Daredevil movie no one liked!

I hope he's got his A-game on if he actually does play Steven Strange.

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on December 13, 2014, 08:48:23 PM
Through the email leaks, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Sony was in talks with Marvel. Marvel wanted to produce a new rebooted trilogy of Spider-Man films with Sony, as well as include him in Civil War. The deal didn't fall through and Sony plans to continue their franchise strategy.

http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2014/12/09/sony-marvel-discussed-spider-man-movie-crossover/

Have to say, Sony is pretty dumb not to take that offer up. Having Spider-Man in the same film as Captain America and Iron Man, and exploring a fresh cinematic storyline for him, would have boosted the box office of his future movies. I love Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, but I'd give him up if it meant getting some of the coveted Avengers boost. Having Spider-Man, Cap and Iron Man in the same movie would have been awesome too.  :(

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on January 07, 2015, 04:22:46 PM
Yeah.

The synopsis for AoU describes Ultron as a 'dormant peacekeeping program' so it's still possible that it was spearheaded by Pym. What I liked about Ultron was that Pym gave him elements of his consciousness to keep him human, but Pym was such a pessimist and a cynic that, in an ironic twist, Ultron grew and developed his misanthropist qualities from that.

But in the context of the MCU and where the story for Tony is going, it make sense for him to be responsible for Ultron and Ultron's crimes. Tony needs to do something so wrong that he'll agree with the government on superhuman regulation.

The main downside to this is that Ultron's motivations have gone from his confused understanding of humanity to just seeing them as a threat to Earth and an obstacle in his programming (to protect the planet, as assigned by Tony). Perhaps they'll make it more interesting than that, though. Whedon seems to love the character and directed the first one in the hopes of adapting Ultron for a sequel.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Keilax on January 07, 2015, 04:36:21 PM
Yeah, the SRA (Superhuman Registration Act) is the catalyst for Civil War (comics), but in the MCU, maybe, because of the 'Ultron Incident', he'll want to regulate the world in a different manner. That would be a logical and plausable story for Tony when it comes to the Civil War (film). Stiil doesn't mean I agree with, maybe not 'radical', but different change for Ultron.

A wild poll appeared!

I voted for a new actor. I love Andrew Garfield and I think he could do a lot more with the role, but the worldbuilding in ASM2 kills any chance of MCU continuity. It'll be exciting to see someone else in the role too.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Dregran Entropy on January 15, 2015, 05:47:32 AM
Ahh, that's awesome if it's true. I really hope it is.

If he's going to appear in Infinity War for sure, maybe he'll just cameo in Civil War or just be in the post credits scene? I really want Spidey in that movie.

I voted for new actor. The first two ASM movies really make me doubt even the spin off Sinister Six. I think Spider-Man deserves another fresh start too, especially since ASM wasn't as good as it could be imo and Sony only made ASM so they wouldn't lose the rights. >__>
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on January 15, 2015, 08:16:47 AM
Sinister Six was shaping up to be horrible.

According to the leaked Sony emails, Spidey was going to get the symbiote suit, team up with the Sinister Six and then throw the suit away because they make fun of him. .___.

More off the wall emails suggested Gwen Stacey returning as Carnage.

There was also a very desperate email from Amy Pascal asking Sam Raimi for help. It was so cringey to read.

They really have no idea what they're doing with the franchise. Andrew Garfield is gone so I have no interest in seeing another Sony Spider-Man film.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up for this Marvel deal happening, though.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Dregran Entropy on January 15, 2015, 08:40:29 AM
So even if Sony keeps making Spider-Man films, Andrew Garfield was not going to be Spider-Man? That is the worst thing ever. He was the shine in an otherwise bad film. Sony just needs to stop and give Spider-Man rights to Marvel and leave it at that.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on January 15, 2015, 09:47:58 AM
He was sacked according to reports. He criticised the studio for changing the film too much and didn't attend an important meeting. He was definitely the best part of the film and it's sad that he happened to play Spider-Man at the wrong time. However, there are rumours that Marvel want him to play a cosmic character in Phase 3.

They want Sinister Six to serve as a soft reboot. A bit silly considering ASM2 devoted itself to setting Sinister Six up.

Having SS as a stand-alone or soft reboot is a good idea, but it's a stretch since ASM2 was a set up and if they're gonna waste that it means 80% of the movie will be set up knowing Sony and it'll be criticised for having too many villains. I mean SS could be a great movie, but considering how ASM wasn't that amazing and ASM2 was a step down the wrong track I've lost all faith in anything good coming if Sony is involved.

Garfield in the MCU as a different character would be weird, but they can't exactly make him Spider-Man, even if they had the rights. Sony should have not made ASM and Garfield should have jumped into the MCU as Spider-Man and member of the Avengers. Dammit Sony, you ruined possibly the best live-action Spider-Man.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on January 15, 2015, 11:24:14 AM
WHAT! I know not of this! What's happening?!?!

Sony was expecting a billion dollar gross for ASM2, it made 700 million with a profit of only around 60 million. Their marketing budget was the same as the production budget so they spent almost 500 million.

Sony was hacked and emails leaked online, revealing the disappointing profit, the fallout between Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Andrew Garfield and the studio, the lack of direction and general panic of the franchise, as well as talks with Marvel about a Civil War cameo.

The original deal proposed by Marvel was that Marvel would get full creative control of the character while Sony kept the distribution rights. Spider-Man would appear in Civil War and Infinity War as well as a rebooted trilogy of of films which Sony would distribute. Marvel asked that Sony fund only 40%. Sony wasn't happy with this deal as they want to keep creative control. The biggest issue here is Sony's support of Avi Arad, who has been producing the Spider-Man films since the late 90s. He is the main problem with meddling with the films, like pushing Venom in SM3 and using ASM2 as a platform for Sinister Six. He wants creative control and Sony fully support him. He co-founded Marvel Studios and was a producer on Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. However, he disagreed with the shared universe concept and left in 2008. He and Kevin Feige don't have a good relationship so that complicates negotiations further. Sony rejected the offer but the Japanese heads want it to happen because Spider-Man obviously isn't as lucrative for them as it once was. There were rumours of a counter offer from Sony where they fund 25% of Civil War and have creative control of a new Spider-Man trilogy. They would have final approval on any Marvel scripts featuring Spider-Man, and they would have two Marvel characters for their Spider-Man trilogy. Needless to say, Marvel never responded to this.

Later, Joe Russo emailed Amy Pascal about him and Anthony Russo producing a Spider-Man reboot for them, with seemingly no ties to the MCU, though he did mention they'll have the time to do it before Infinity War. Amy Pascal replied saying she'd have to have a "difficult conversation" with Avi Arad, to which Russo said it would be worth having, insinuating he wants Avi Arad off Spider-Man so they can produce. Sony never replied to that but emails went around stating the future of the franchise will be discussed and decided in January, which fuelled rumours about a Marvel deal.

I would agree as something not seen in the franchise before (a villain team up) is a good way to reboot, but obviously the email leaks have shown us how Sony isn't able to adapt in the 2010s era of superhero films. The only reason they've had the success so far is because Marc Webb (despite being a yes man) has a good grasp on most of the characters and because the cast has been solid.

Garfield in the MCU as a different character would be weird, but they can't exactly make him Spider-Man, even if they had the rights. Sony should have not made ASM and Garfield should have jumped into the MCU as Spider-Man and member of the Avengers. Dammit Sony, you ruined possibly the best live-action Spider-Man.

It would be even more weird if his character encountered Spider-Man.   :D

I'm CONVINCED that Sony wanted to do a villain movie before they did one of the MANY heroes that spin off from the Spider-Man universe because all of those heroes are people of color or women. Why can't we get a Silver Sable, Cloak and Dagger, the Prowler, or a Black Cat movie? Amazing Spider-Man Presents: One of those Heroes. But oh wait... they're not white men, so we can't chance it. Ugh.

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on January 20, 2015, 05:56:17 PM
Yeah, it sounds like they only want to use an expanded universe to showcase villains rather than superheroes. It's a bit pointless now, considering the buzz around Suicide Squad has killed Sinister Six's chance of being the unique supervillain team up film.

Sony is sitting on a lot more characters than they realise, but all they can think of is Venom. Avi Arad has been pushing Venom on us for nearly ten years now, and his origin story in Sinister Six sounds horrible.

To their credit, one of their planned projects is a female team up movie featuring Spider-Man characters, but we don't know how far along they are with that compared to Sinister Six or Venom.

I think this was great in getting across the central aspects of Daredevil himself.

- He's blind
- He has extrasensory powers
- He's a lawyer
- He's a vigilante
- He's Catholic
- He fears going a step too far

The tone itself is important because of how much more violent this series looks than the movies.

SPIDEY'S HOME!!!

www.superherohype.com/news/329465-its-official-spider-man-enters-the-marvel-cinematic-universe

Well, kind of. Sony still has the rights and final creative say on any movies, but the new series is going to be produced by Amy Pascal of Sony and Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios, meaning that Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are out.

The MCU Spider-Man reboot is out July 2017 (meaning that the Phase 3 lineup has shifted a bit) and he's going to appear in at least one MCU movie before that. MCU characters will probably appear in Spidey's solo films too.

I'm hoping he debuts in Civil War, even if it's a cameo. It would be neat if they showed the spider bite in the post-credits scene so they can skip it completely in his solo movie. And having him in a team up movie like that will give his solo movie some goodwill and hype that the 2012 reboot lacked. It's also most likely since only Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Civil War, Doctor Strange and GotG 2 are being released before Spidey's solo film. It's probably too late for Age of Ultron and Civil War's the only one that seems to have relevance to Spidey.

The only downside is that Sony have final creative approval, but hopefully without Arad there won't be any bad creative decisions.

Just took a look, and by doing the 'Untitled Spider-Man' film, they've have shifted it a bit and now Inhumans is after Avengers: Infinity War Pt2.

Before, A:IW Pt2 was the last of the series, with Inhumans the film before it, and now it is after A:IW Pt2. Not a huge thing, but still...

That's a bit annoying, but it's all in flux at the moment and could change anytime.

If the Latino Review scoop is to be believed, Spider-Man will headline the New Avengers in Infinity War Part I and will be joined by the original Avengers in Part II. I think Infinity War is the perfect way to smoothly transition away from the Big Three and into Phase 4 as it serves as the finale to the story arc that began in the first Cap film while introducing Phase 4's Avengers team. Infinity War Part II should definitely be the last in the Phase 3 line up.

Some minor updates on the Spider-Man deal:

- Marvel has previously offered Sony 'billions' for the Spider-Man rights
- Marvel hasn't paid Sony for this deal, or vice versa; it's a mutually beneficial arrangement
- Marvel won't receive any box office profits from future Spider-Man films, but will retain merchandising rights
- Sony won't receive any box office profits from MCU films featuring Spider-Man
- Sony has the largest say over the casting of Spider-Man and is looking for someone younger than Andrew Garfield
- Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad will be executive producers on future Spider-Man films, but will have no creative input
- This deal could be a way in for Marvel to one day get the Spider-Man rights back entirely
- The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 are cancelled (duh)
- For now, Sinister Six is still in development at Sony but it no longer has a November 2016 release date
- Venom and the all-female team up movie are also still in development
- Kevin Feige won't be a producer or have any creative input on the Spider-Man spin-off films
- Spider-Man is going to debut Civil War


http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/marvel-deal-sony-opts-lease-772251
http://variety.com/2015/film/news/details-spider-man-appear-in-sony-and-marvel-movies-1201429039/


So far for Civil War we have Cap, Iron Man, Falcon, Black Widow, the Winter Soldier, Black Panther and Spider-Man. This movie is going to be amazing. ;D

I think it's worrying that Sony has complete creative control on Sinister Six and its other spin-offs. What if they really muck up? Their films are going to be a part of the MCU now, what if they taint it with bad creative decisions? Unless Spider-Man spin-offs will be considered non-canon?

Oh my god I was so excited when I read that Marvel was co-producing the next Spider-Man reboot and that he's going to be in the MCU.

I know it's just a rumour at this stage, but I read an article that questioned whether or not Spidey will be black. I think it'd be interesting to have him with different heritage, and it'd separate the MCU Spidey from the previous two a lot more.

Does the guy in the background, flying with the cape, look like Magneto to anyone else?
That's a pose he'd do.

It's Vision, an android created by Ultron. Outside of promo art Marvel has been a bit secretive about him.
Well, could be interesting, then.
If they're being secretive, I guess I can wait the... what is it now, two and a half months or so?

I think it's genuine, whatever Clint and Nat had was clearly in the past. I don't see Bruce and Nat lasting past this movie, though.

Post by: ravenrune on March 05, 2015, 12:00:43 AM
Oh so they end up on two sides of this civil war thing? I never read the comics, so I don't know who's on who's side. I think Spider-man was on Iron Mans side? It was money reasons or something and Cap was upset. idk. Civil war bothers me because I don't want to see them splitting up and being angry at each other.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Jara on March 05, 2015, 12:07:43 AM
Pretty sure it was issues the government had with superhero vigilantes performing criminal busts outside the law. Lots of superheroes lobbied for freedom of privacy while others thought it was best for superheroes to be registered and combat super-villains under the government.

And same, tbh. I heard they're not gonna introduce the comic civil war stuff in the upcoming Cap movie, but I might be wrong.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on March 05, 2015, 12:48:59 AM
I just assume Bruce will take Tony's side (even if he's not in the movie) because he best knows the dangers that come from superpowers. Natasha would side with Cap based on her actions in The Winter Soldier.

Jara, the movie will be more about government control, surveillance and regulation. The book touched on all of these (itself being a criticism of the Patriot Act), but the movie won't have much emphasis on identities. With SHIELD gone the Avengers try to regulate themselves in Age of Ultron, but ultimately the responsibility of Ultron's damage will fall on them. The government would probably introduce the Registration Act in response to the fallout. The leaked clip from SDCC is very telling on Tony's and Steve's different outlooks of their team's purpose.

It won't be a straight up adaption of the book, but the central themes will be there.

I think the Russo brothers will knock it out of the park. Civil War will give them a practice run at handling a big crossover inside the groundwork they set with The Winter Soldier. They'll have a lot of insight and experience when it comes to Infinity War.

They're TV directors so they seem pretty good with schedules. Between The Winter Soldier and Civil War they've fit in episodes of Agent Carter and Community and landed producer jobs at Sony.

My only concern is that they may bring Henry Jackman back for Infinity War. What the hell even is this?

Post by: ExtraterrestrialGuy on April 11, 2015, 08:56:40 PM
Two movies were probably enough for Joss Whedon. He's basically spent the last five years with Marvel.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been with Marvel since Phase One and have written the most MCU material (The First Avenger, The Dark World, The Winter Soldier, Agent Carter and Civil War). They're the safest option to go with and, as with the Russo brothers, Civil War will give them ample experience to tackle an Avengers movie.

Kevin Feige finally talks about Spider-Man.  ;D

On the origin:


Quote from: Kevin Feige
“In Spider-Man’s very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it’s been – [thirteen] years – for us we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics. It will not be an origin story. But, with great power comes great responsibility. It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the MCU dealing with his powers. There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don’t know it yet,

On the look of Spider-Man:

Quote from: Kevin Feige
We’ve already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you’ll see.

On the Phase Three announcement:

Quote from: Kevin Feige
Spider-Man we knew about when we were doing that announcement in October. It could have gone either way, and Marvel as you well know doesn’t announce announce anything officially until it’s set in stone. So we went forward with that Plan A in October, with the Plan B being, if it were to happen with Sony, how it would all shift. We’ve been thinking about it as long as we’ve been thinking about Phase Three.

On casting and Spider-Man's age:

Quote from: Kevin Feige
In terms of the age of an actor we’ll eventually to cast, I don’t know. In terms of the age of what we believe Peter Parker is, I’d say 15-16 is right. We want to play with Spider-Man in the high school years because frankly there’ve been five Spider-Man films and the amazing thing about it is, even though there’ve been five Spider-Man films, there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet. Not just characters or villains or supporting characters, but sides to his character. The most obvious being the ‘young, doesn’t quite fit in’ kid before his powers, and then the fella that puts on a mask and swings around and fights bad guys and doesn’t shut up, which is something we want to play with and we’re excited about.

I think it was midway through the first film that he graduated high school. At the beginning of the second Marc Webb film, he graduated high school. And some of my favorite Spider-Man arcs and Spider-Man stories, he’s in high school for a lot of it. We want to explore that. That also makes him very, very different from any of our other characters in the MCU, which is something else we want to explore: how unique he is when now put against all these other characters.

http://www.craveonline.co.uk/film/articles/845723
http://collider.com/spider-man-kevin-feige-confirms-peter-parker-in-high-school/

This is so exciting.  ;D

I hope we get to see the costume when Civil War starts filming.



Wait, what? They're giving the Inhumans their own show?! They don't need one! AoS is covering their story!

Inhumans is getting a movie in 2019. It's the last of the Phase Three lineup.

Agents of SHIELD is doing a storyline with Inhumans on Earth, but the movie will be based on a cosmic society of Inhumans.

I'm not a massive Ant-Man (Pym) fan but he's a very important Avenger and central to the twisted family dynamics concerning Ultron, Vision and Wanda in the books. As a film concept, Ant-Man shrinking during fights (as seen in the Yellowjacket still) is going to be fresh. Edgar Wright's test footage alone was awesome. The only similarity between Ant-Man and Aquaman is that they're misrepresented in mainstream popular culture (though I'd argue Ant-Man doesn't have much representation at all).

I am quite a big Ant-Man fan and tbh even though it's Scott Lang in the film, both him and Pym are great. What with Pym being a potential villain in the film and Scott Lang's whole "I'm only in it for the money and not to save your city" thing is actually really refreshing. Especially with the whole new torrent of heroes that suddenly have a gritty "I need to save my city" type deal.
Looking at Arrow, here.
He's a useful and probably fishing brilliant mind to add along to the Avengers, though in the MCU he doesn't create Ultron. The film could probably be really original in terms of fights, too. I'm used to the whole heroes suddenly knowing martial arts or kickboxing (Daredevil would've been really badass if he literally boxed his opponents into unconsciousness instead of the martial arts) and with the knowledge that Scott Lang wasn't originally much of a fighter-type guy, same with Hank Pym, it'd be really cool to see how the suit accomodates to allow cheating in fights. In the comics, he's not smart, he's not strong, he's just really good at breaking the law and he works that to his advantage by cheating all the fishing time and it's absolutely great to see. I'm also interested in how his personal life will be portrayed, because Scott totally llamas up relationships and it would be really cool to see him not get the girl, what with his wife probably realising what a sleazebag he is, and... *sigh* man. I just can't wait, especially for the humour. He's a really comic-relief hero and basically where I'm going with this is if you insult Ant-Man again without good reason i will deck you into the great beyond

(Daredevil would've been really badass if he literally boxed his opponents into unconsciousness instead of the martial arts)

Daredevil was always quite flashy, but his punches in the Netflix series were very sportsy/boxing-like. He didn't drive in his punches and give one-hit KOs like most superheroes do, he gave short and repetitive jabs until his opponents stopped getting up.

1:46 into this video is a good example of his boxing style.

Yeah I liked that he took that sort of boxing aspect from his dad. It also felt more realistic to me? He grew up in a Western environment with Western boxers, makes sense he'd get some boxing. I was thinking of the film, though, where Elektra and Daredevil both had some weird martial art style iirc.

He's okay. There's nothing wrong with him. Being able to change size at will is a pretty good power. None of the avengers are bad characters and none are anywhere close to boring, I just don't like Ant-Man as much as the others.

Another MCU television show in development:

Quote
EW has learned that Oscar-winning writer-producer John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) is teaming up with Marvel to develop a mysterious new TV series.

We hear the deal involves reinventing an existing Marvel superhero character or property for ABC—but all sides are staying quiet on exactly which title Ridley is adapting.

I think they went a bit overboard with the tacticool lines on the blue portions, but I guess it fits with the MCU's costume aesthetics. Also, I know the eye pieces are visual effects, but I hope they start using a helmet like they've done for all the other films. Without a helmet under the mask to give it the round shape it looks like a cosplay. Or the 70s version. (http://i.imgur.com/CNgUoz7.jpg)

The Inhumans is ABC's new show, starting next September.

The first two episodes are being released in IMAX.


http://marvel.com/news/tv/26993/marvels_the_inhumans_coming_to_imax_abc_in_2017

It's going to be eight episodes like Agent Carter, so the budget will probably be better balanced than SHIELD's.

It's also says the show isn't related to the movie or Agents of SHIELD.

I wonder what this means for the movie and if this is the first substantial crossover between Marvel Studios and Marvel TV since Agent Carter.

He looks awesome, but I'm kinda disappointed that he is the main villain.

I dunno. I'm less interested in what characters these were in the comics, and I'm more interested in what the films choose to do with them.
I also think the Vulture is perfect. The film looks like it's Spider-man coming into his own. It's a good progression from thugs and street level villains. Any other villain would demand more focus but the Vulture allows the film to focus on Spider-man and his progression more.

Yeah I agree, Toomes is just a criminal and a good first villain for Spider-Man. I'm also excited for more Keaton, he's also got his McDonald's movie coming out before this.

I like the angle they're going with Tony, where he wants Spider-Man to stay street level. Peter's not wearing his costume in some of the later shots, I think he's going to ditch the Stark tech by the end of the movie and go his own way.

I still don't understand why the fat one isn't Ganke though. He looks and acts just like him.

I hope they keep the high school stuff to a minimum like in SM1 and ASM1. Feige said that they're going for a John Hughes feel, but his characters are so unlikeable and whiny. They've also made a horrible casting choice for Flash, so the best aspect of the high school angle is ruined for me.

Homecoming trailer has got me excited, he seems like a great spidey.

First Marvel film I've been really hyped for in a while!

It's so weird seeing the Columbia logo with Marvel Studios.

His prototype suit is the Ben Reilly costume with inverted colours.

Edit:

This isn't MCU related, but I'm not going to make a thread until they actually start production (given Sony's track record). There's a lot of context so I'll write it out as simply as I can.

Sony's fast tracking their 'Spider-Man' shared universe with Venom and Black Cat/Silver Sable.

Venom's got an October 2018 release date and is being produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.
It's being written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner.

The Black Cat/Silver Sable team up movie is being written by Christopher Yost, a Marvel mainstay. He wrote one of the 90s X-Men cartoons and co-created X-23, who first appeared on that show. He's also written Thor 2 and a draft of Thor 3. The last book I read from him was the Kaine Scarlett Spider one in 2012.

Avi Arad and Sony have been trying to do Venom since 2007, after Spider-Man 3 was released.
In December 2013 Sony announced Venom for 2017, to be set in the Amazing Spider-Man universe.
They also announced Sinister Six for 2016 and there were reports of a female team up too (which seems to have evolved into Black Cat/Silver Sable).
The Amazing Spider-Man series was ended when Sony and Marvel announced their partnership in February 2015.
Around the same time, a report from the Wall Street Journal mentioned that Sony was still developing Sinister Six without Marvel.
The last we had heard of these was that Venom was being re-written last year.

This new shared universe isn't part of the MCU or Spider-Man: Homecoming, even though Tom Holland's Spider-Man still belongs to Sony.
To clarify, Sony gets final approval for any Spider-Man appearances in the Marvel movies (Civil War, Infinity War and Avengers 4).
Sony is financing Homecoming and distributing it, but have essentially commissioned Marvel Studios to make the movie for them.
This means that Marvel are using Sony's money to make the movie, and Disney isn't involved in distribution (this is why Homecoming wasn't mentioned in the recent Infinity War teaser).
Sony keeps all box office profits for Homecoming as Marvel aren't out of pocket, but Marvel will be making money from Spider-Man merchandise. In 2014 Marvel/Disney made $1.3 billion from Spider-Man merchandise, whereas Sony only made $60 million in profit from ASM2.
Homecoming is co-produced by Amy Pascal, who has been the producer of every single Spider-Man movie since the first one in 2002.

Pascal is also producing the Black Cat/Silver Sable movie with Matt Tolmach, but not Avi Arad.
The first thing that struck me is that this shared universe has a lot of Amazing Spider-Man pedigree.
Pinkner co-wrote ASM2; Arad has also been a producer on every Spider-Man movie, but isn't on Homecoming; and Tolmach was the producer of both ASM and ASM2.
This can be good or bad depending on whether or not you enjoyed the ASM movies, but it tells us that nothing much has changed since the Sony Marvel deal. Sony still wants to make annual Spider-Man movies.

Avi Arad being kept around is my biggest issue with this. He's the man who shoehorned Venom into Spider-Man 3 and the Sinister Six plot in ASM2.
Things at Sony were so bad that when they sacked Andrew Garfield, Sinister Six (2016) was going to be a soft reboot, featuring a recasted Spider-Man.
That means that ASM2 would have been all set up and the payoff wouldn't even feature the same cast. These are the people in charge of this shared universe.

The next problem is that last year we heard the Venom movie wasn't going to involve Spider-Man at all.
That may work for Venom, but I can't see anyone buying a shared universe of Spider-Man characters without Spider-Man himself.
They legally have the right to use Spider-Man in these movies, but I'm sure Marvel have safeguards in place to ensure they can't use the Holland/MCU version.

They'd have three choices here:

a) go on without Spider-Man
b) recast Spider-Man and have two live action Peter Parkers in two different franchises
c) use a different Spider-Man such as Reilly or Morales

At worst, Sony makes some bad movies that in no way affect the MCU.
At best, we get some decent movies from Spider-Man characters we woudn't ever be getting from Marvel (like Deadpool and Logan from Fox).

I personally hope that if Venom is succesful, they do Agent Venom down the line. I really don't like the casting choice for Flash Thompson in the MCU and honestly can't picture him as Thompson. If Sony's going the no Spider-Man route, that would impact a bit of the early Agent Venom storyline, but there's still more than enough material for them to cover (especially if they utilise Betty Brant, Jack O'Lantern and Mania).

I have no interest in a Black Cat/Silver Sable movie, though. If they have her based on the naming convention, I'd rather see a Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman movie based on the Gruenwald run. Jessica Drew has no important ties to Peter so that'd be an easier movie to sell without Spider-Man than Black Cat.

It's neat that they're deciding/decided on introducing more characters to the cinematic universe, but is it going to get confusing? Especially if they juggle Spider man.

Just quickly throwing this in as well.

Guardians 2 was amazing. A friend who likes Marvel movies more than I do said it wasn't as good as the first one but I'm still so hyped by it and everything that happened.
Title: Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Post by: Kiiyashi on April 28, 2017, 11:02:04 AM
I had a similar opinion there.

I thought the plot of the first one was better, and enjoyed it more, but the second one was funnier, had some damn cool visual effects, and had a much better antagonist.
They're both really damn good though.

I loved the second one, thought it was much better than the first.

Yondu is probably my favourite.

Tyler Bate's score is great. As with when I saw the first one, I can't get the Guardians' theme out of my head.

Villain was great.

Nebula is really annoying.

I loved Nebula in this. Nothing she did was surprising and her character arc was 100% standard (I liked her in Vol 1 more) but I still loved her in this. Maybe I have a thing for Karen Gillan shaving her head idk.

Yondu was better in this film. This was a good sequel, since it answered a lot of questions in the previous one. After letting it settle, I'd say I like this movie better.
