I'm like the most basic fan of these movies. Don't read the comics, don't care to. That being said, while mostly enjoyable and fun flicks, this feels like over saturation.
 
2013-05-01 12:42:26 PM
And I'll be seeing each and every movie.

They've been doing an average of 2 a year since '08, and it sounds like they're maintaining that pace
at least through 2015.

They do want to keep coming out with them regularly to try and simulate the regular release schedule of
their comics, I think.

"phase two" is just another way of saying "next wave"

Part of what makes these special effects-driven movies so appealing to keep cranking out is that they sell really well in the foreign markets -- in some cases, much better than in the US.

Comic book movies are easy for foreign audiences to understand because they're big, they're dumb, they have iconic characters and they feel American.

The spell will wear off and people will get tired of them, and we'll move on to something else (maybe Star Wars clones?).

Marvel and DC continuing to publish comics is really little more than keeping their IPs alive so they can license them out. I've heard from those in the industry that DC loses money off its comics division, and Marvel tends to break even. Both make the bulk of their money in licensing, which is huge.

"Steve Rogers' abrupt transition from World War II to the present day wasn't given a lot of screen time inThe Avengers, (except for one brilliant, but ultimately deleted scene)"

Anyone know what deleted scene they're referencing here? I've seen a few but can't remember any dealing with Rogers' transition from WWII.

Is this confirmed? Someone please tell me this is confirmed.

well of course they're losing money there, they've completely failed to adapt to the digital age. they're wasting tons of money producing physical product when they should be focusing their time and money elsewhere.

they should just ditch the regular print issues and go pure digital. they can keep pushing the collected graphic novels the way marvel's been doing them of late(which collect story arcs into digestible single serving chunks) for those who want a physical product.

It was him sitting at the outdoor cafe we saw destroyed in the finale.  The girl on TV saying "Captain America saved me!" was a waitress there.  He asked her for things to do and she said there's free WiFi.  He said "There's a radio?"

Crappily summarized, but it was a sweet scene, especially when she shows up later.

When spelled out all at once sure, but these movies are coming out 1-2 a year and if they play it like Phase 1 then you only have to watch the ones you want. I didn't see Thor or Capt America until after the Avengers and it hurt my enjoyment not one bit of any of the films. Now I was a comic fan years ago so I had enough basic character and Marvel Universe knowledge that individual backstory knowledge wasn't that necessary for me but I could follow the idea of the Tesseract (sp) without any background.

Yep, he was going through the files of the Howling Commandos and they were all dead.  Peggy was still alive, he started to call her but couldn't bring himself to do it.  Good scene, but The Avengers certainly didn't suffer without it.

Agreed.  Marvel's head and shoulders above DC on the archival book front.

But I hate the mess that digital issues end up being on the hard drive.  I've got 200GB of comics, but it's such a mess I rarely go in and read much.  Anyone have any advice on how to do it?  By publisher?  By character?

I think Guardians of the Galaxy is going to end up being a bit too much in the whole CGI aspect.  Groot and Rocket Racoon just won't work in live action.

I just want to see that if Ms./Captain Marvel does show up in "Avengers 2": a) who plays her and b) what the costume will look like?

Also: I'd make a call to Axel Braun and see who he gets to make up the costumes in his XXX parodies because they more or less nail it (no pun intended).

Anthropomorphize them as little as possible? Rockets not an alien who looks like an earth raccoon, he IS a walking talking raccoon. Just make a really good CGI raccoon and give it some guns and a uniform.

Not a raccoon, but furry mammal at least.

Same here.  Comic Rack is great for sorting and searching.  It allows the option to group related series (like every Batman-related series into one category that is further divided by individual series).  It also allows alternate numbering for crossover events.  So if I want to read the death of Superman arc, I don't have to go digging around to see what series/issue I'm supposed to read next.  I also recently discovered the plugin that allows it to automatically fill in all of the meta-data for each issue, making sorting even more useful.

Also, it syncs effortlessly with my Nexus 7, which is perfect for reading comics.

The Mandarin is the villain in Iron Man 3 and it's my understanding that he uses a series of rings that each have a special power (I haven't read much Iron Man over they years).  This makes me wonder whether the plan is to abandon Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet for The Avengers 2.  The ideas seem far too similar for the casual fan, rings/gems each with their own power.

Then again most part ones in these superhero movies boil down to:
1) Get powers
2) Acclimate to powers
3) Bad guy gets powers, begins to misappropriate them
4) Good guy and bad guy fight and bad guy does a very good job of holding their own given the hero has several hours of experience with the new powers whereas the bad guy has only had the tech/powers for a brief while

So maybe an all powerful set or rings/gems would fly completely under the radar.

Havent really played with the library and sorting features at all mostly because i tend to download already sorted arcs, right now im in the middle of Annihilation/Annihilation:Conquest/War of Kings/Realm of Kings/Thanos Imperative, which was all one nicely sorted collection.

If I understand correctly, movie Mandarin is without his power rings, just a terrorist with things that go boom.

buttery_shame_cave: they should just ditch the regular print issues and go pure digital. they can keep pushing the collected graphic novels the way marvel's been doing them of late(which collect story arcs into digestible single serving chunks) for those who want a physical product.


Going pure digital would be a mistake as that only realy panders to the current buyer. The problem is demogrphics as the age of the buyer is getting older and older and the cost is going up and up. What Marvel and DC need is a way to get younger readers into regulaly reading comics as they are currently being left behind.

What Marvel and DC need is to get a flagship product back on the magazine stands and out from the ghetto of the comic book shop. Maybe something like 2000AD where you get six or seven pages of each story with multiple stories (often in black and white to save costs) in one magazine. So what if the current Batman run is a bit poor as the Superman or Wonderwoman will be worth the read. Pump that out weekly and have the monthly "collected" stories for the comic shops.
