Barry McCackiner: I'm just gonna say this. I think comic book movies have jumped the shark. I don't even care about them anymore and I used to be all about it. It seems like literally half of the blockbusters are now comic book movies instead of something original and cool. I'm tired of it. I haven't even seen the last couple and I doubt I'll see Avengers. yawn


I'm sure all the other millions of fans and Marvel & the billions of dollars they make off them are sorry to hear it.

I don't understand why people feel the need to come into a thread about movie/tv show/book/etc. just to state they don't care about said movie/tv show/book/etc.

Kevin Feige said there will be no more stand-alone Hulk movies. Maybe he changed his mind. Or there will be a lot of Avenger's sequels. Or Hulk will pop up in Iron Man VI. And VII.

This is a thread about a ton of comic book movies and I am commenting on the phenomena of comic book movies so it is relevant. I'm not even trolling. I was loving the early 2000s when the original Xmen came out and the first two Spiderman movies. But they have slowly become less good. X-Men First Class was pretty good, but still just felt like rehashed material, they didn't do anything new with it. Now they are rebooting Spiderman? It hasn't even been a decade, wtf. Then you have Iron Man which succeeds purely on the charisma of Downey. The only good parts in either of those stinkers was the part when he built the huge suit in the cave. Otherwise it was a B movie at best, but people loved that crap. Now we are at the point where they are just throwing all of the mediocre characters into a giant bin and basically making a transformers movie out of it. Large action on a large scale with a ton of characters. That's cool I guess. I'll still Netflix it. But I know what I am getting when I go in there and i'm getting bored of it.

So please tell me: When was this glorious renaissance period when there were no comic book or comic strip movies being made? WHEN? A few years in the 1920s? A couple years in the 1950s?

I'm willing to wager there wasn't a two-year period in your life when there wasn't a comic book or comic strip film or TV series being produced or playing, unless you're in your 80s.

Comic books and comic strips have been the inspiration for our entertainment since RADIO was all we had, and before that, it was popular on the stage.

So you're saying that a form of entertainment that has been around SINCE FILM WAS INVENTED is finally "jumping the shark" now, 100 years later?

I'm going to say you're wrong about that. If several dozen Blondie movies in the 1940s couldn't kill comics in cinema, then a couple more superhero flicks won't do it, either.

THE INCREDIBLE HULK IV: Hulk Argues with Comcast Customer Service About His Cable Bill


Christ, I laughed my ass off at this. I imagine the phone call begins as Bruce Banner, speaking calmly and mildly, and after being put on hold for the fifth time, he Hulks Out and starts shouting caveman-speak into his bluetooth headset while trashing his apartment. HULK NO LIKE FIFTEEN DOLLAR RECONNECT FEE!

That would make a great spoof video.

9beers: Carth: You think we'll get away with less than 3 Avengers movies?

You're right, there probably will be three. Take off one of the small roles and add another Avengers sequel.


Step 1) You have a comic book movie thats a hit. So a Sequel gets made.

Step 2) Sequel hits big, with either larger box office returns and or better received by critics.

Step 3) Third movie comes out and shoehorns 19 villains and 4 side kicks into it and is completely terrible and nobody likes it.

Reboot.

Several super hero franchises have followed this. They used to squeeze out a forth really terrible movie while it was still profitable, but that was back before Hollywood learned the phrase "Reboot".

Marvel Studios might be able to avoid it as they seem to have a good handle on their characters, I guess we will find out when we watch Iron Man 3.

Will the Nolan Batman films follow the same pattern? unknown.

Doctor Strange is being developed and Marvel has been wanting to do something with Namor ever since they got his rights back. You could always introduce Valkyrie as being from Asgard.

I say A Defenders movie is a good possibility.

RoxtarRyan: Exception Collection: RoxtarRyan: No. There will be the initial 3, mainly focusing on one character, then a sequel one that shows the origins of said character, then another one that shows how they all came together, only different than the first time. Then there will be a sequel to that, then the inevitable spinoff, then the reboot. The reboot will get a sequel, but suck, then get re-rebooted, until that character that bombed in the reboot and the re-reboot shows up in another superhero smorgasbord, and be played decent enough to where people will want to see it re-re-rebooted.

They already did the origins of the main Avengers - only Hawkeye and Black Widow haven't had origins.

They all will be rebooted eventually, then have how they all met re-rebooted, then there will be a sequel, a spinoff, leading to a re-re-reboot, leading to.....


Unless the studio head dramatically changes his mind, there will be no reboot of any of the Avengers characters. They've stated that they intend to "James Bond" them instead, eg - have different actors in the future play the same character if necessary due to age or actors growing bored with the role.

I believe them, because essentially they tested it with Bana -> Norton -> Ruffalo, and it worked just fine.

Probably not, the first 2 had two villains each, the new one has one and a half.

BUT... they are rebooting it after this one. But with Nolan producing, so who knows. Rumor was that DC/WB wanted to do what Marvels doing, the Green Lantern movie, the upcoming Superman reboot, the Batman reboot, all in the same continuity, maybe Flash and WW movies, all culminating in some Justice League movies. As badass as that would have been, im pretty sure they were just rumors. Unless i totally missed something, there was nothing like that in the Green Lantern movie unfortunately, no nods to a larger shared universe. There could have been too, when Agent Waller was like "Contrary to what the conspiracy nuts say, this is the first alien weve dissected" it shoulda gone "...but we wouldnt mind a closer look at a certain citizen of metropolis". What could have been...

Now they are rebooting Spiderman?

Only because Sony is on a clock in the agreement with Marvel. If they don't release a Spider-Man movie every so many years, the rights go back to Marvel (now Disney). Same thing with Fox and Wolverine/X-Men. If you ever want to see a true, complete-universe Marvel movie, the best bet may be to stop going to any and all Sony and Fox releases and hope they'll sell the properties back to Marvel in bankruptcy.

I certainly hope Dark Knight Rises is good, I hate this weird trilogy curse comic movies are in.

With Green Lantern Indeed that was their goal. but nothing like that ended up in the movies, save the surprisingly sexy Amanda Waller which might of been a Coulson like character for their movies. There was a rumor that early drafts of the script had the ring flying around looking for people to wield it and circling the Daily Planet building, and rumors that a certain familiar reporter from Metropolis might be in it, but nothing!

I don't know if they lost faith in the movie and pulled any of that, or if they just mismanaged it all together. But I can tell you this, with Avengers set to make 500 million dollars by next sunday, there almost HAS to be a Justice League movie. Now it might be terrible and shoved out as fast as possible, but there will be one.

(I Hope its Awesome!)

Then rent "Haywire" which just came out today and probably a lot of people haven't seen. I never understand people complaining about no good movies to see, when there's lots of good movies to watch, but no one wants to take chances on something that hasn't been advertised like crazy.

Petit_Merdeux: I don't know which is worse. That they plan on making six Hulk movies, or that there is an actor willing to do all of them.


In terms of actor commitment to the role let's mention that Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno starred in around 70 hours of Hulk TV (series episodes + telefilms - commercials).

God I hate all the hype surrounding the Avengers movies. It's all anyone talks about. The only good film series was Iron Man, and it got really farking cheesy in the 2nd movie when Ironman's farking heavy metal suit fit into a suitcase. Thor and Captain America were mediocre, even for backstories. They have yet to make a good Hulk film. Color me unimpressed.

ZeroCorpse: Here's a sampling


I am only saying this because I care, but there are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

Not to mention Lou Ferrigno appearing in both Hulk movies and voice acting the Hulk both in The Incredible Hulk and The Avengers. I know it's not the role, but he still contributes to the mythology it when asked.

Neeek: texdent: Hulk cameo in future hopeful Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

I think the GotG are a tad too obscure to get a movie.


When Iron Man was a technology based superhero, we were worried about Thor being a 'Norse God' would be a ridiculous addition to the movie universe. We were wrong. And now thanks to Avengers, we're ready to go cosmic. In which case...

Hollyweird is out of ideas so they found somebody that knew how to have good ideas. This is a good thing.

/please make Cat shiat One into a full length movie

Yeah, I think it just means he's agreed to play the Hulk six more times.

Dr.Zom: Kevin Feige said there will be no more stand-alone Hulk movies. Maybe he changed his mind. Or there will be a lot of Avenger's sequels. Or Hulk will pop up in Iron Man VI. And VII.


Apparently his was not the final word on the subject.

SnakeLee: Six Hulk movies would be great, because they would start to get pretty strange after 3 or 4. It will be like Hulk vs The Leprechaun vs Jason or some shiat like that


To be fair, Hulk in Space was done in the comics and it was AWESOME.

\but I'm biased because the animated adaptation had Horse Thor. Horse Thor is automatically awesome.
\\Yes, I know his real name is Beta Ray Bill

You think we'll get away with less than 3 Avengers movies? For whatever reason Hollywood seems to have decided 3 is the magic number for big franchises.

And considering that it looks like The Avengers will have taken over $500m worldwide by the end of this weekend I suspect they are already throwing money at Joss Whedon to get him to write/direct the sequel, if he isn't already signed up.


I think, if they are doing the Infinity Gauntlet story, that we will be seeing a whole lot of cross over movies and sequels in the future.

Say what you will, but getting that burn scar really improved Zuko's fashion sense.
