I'm still mystified by the choice of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch when you don't have the rights to mutants, but whatever, the first one was great so they probably know what they're doing.

I still don't understand how mutant can be a term that can be "owned".  Specific characters... sure but such a generic term is basically hamstringing Marvel Studios. I wonder what Fox could do or get if Disney said fark it.  Yes, Fox you own the rights to X-Men and most of their roster but mutant is too common a word and such a common comic book origin we can't see not using it.  Oh and we can use any mutant that has happened to appear on an Avenger's roster.

Having listened to the director's commentary for the first one, I'm not so sure. The amount of times Whedon says something along the lines of "This was almost a disaster but we had an amazing stroke of luck on the day" or "I screwed up here but they caught it in post and fixed it" or "This scene sucked before RDJ improvised a few jokes" is honestly kinda worrying.

He's like bizarro Terry Gilliam - the movie was great, but only due to a series of highly unlikely fortuitous coincidences. I assume he found a field of four leaf clovers or sucked off a leprechaun on the first day of the shoot or something.

FOX doesn't own mutants, they are licensing 'Mutants as applied to Marvel movies.'
It is a left-over of the crap deal Marvel signed to get X-1 made.
QS and SW are special since they were prominent members in both. Marvel may be able to make an argument about Beast and Wolverine, but they may not want to push their luck.

Well, to be fair they did (very sneakily) hint at Scarlet Witch in the first movie, so that's not -overly- surprising.  Still, I agree it's pretty odd (and hilarious) how Marvel is skirting the line with Fox on this.

Probably because they were avengers for something like 30 years, and it's easy to gloss over the mutant thing.

Witty_Retort: FOX doesn't own mutants, they are licensing 'Mutants as applied to Marvel movies.'


You are right but as I said basically the word is off limits in non-Fox Marvel properties which is a bit silly.  I don't think Disney would appropriate Wolverine or Beast for the Avengers.  It was an exceptionally dumb wording since when they sold those rights they had no movie aspirations and comic book movies were pretty much failures with rare exceptions.  Since Fox doesn't seem willing to stop churning out X-men movies Disney should cut a deal to free up that word since it so silly.

2013-10-30 09:22:05 PM

Nefarious: since it so silly.


Let's finish that thought:

Free up mutant since forcing Marvel Studio properties to write around the word is silly and limiting.  Sort of like Sony not allowing Marvel to use Empire State University in The Incredible Hulk because they own the rights.  I think flexibility here would probably benefit all the studios releasing Marvel movies.

Flappyhead: Is he still nailing the director of the first Kick-Ass?



you are wondering if he is "nailing" a 42yo father of 3 named Matthew Vaughn?

i'm guessing a) that was never a thing that happened thus b) probably isn't "still" happening.

maybe you mean the 'Nowhere Boy' director that is now his wife? in that case... i would assume so.

Last weeks episode of Agents of SHIELD introduced non-engineered meta-humans to the universe without calling them "mutants".


Informants saw him lighting torches in a street show... with his pinky.

Brought it to SHIELDs attention, we told him to keep his abilities under wraps, he's been on The Index ever since.

The Index?

It's a list SHIELD keeps of people and objects with powers.

Wait what? How many are there? Are you saying there are more people...

Not many.

Enough to keep a list.

A short list.



TBH i think its ok that Marvel doesnt have the X-men license. It gives them breathing room to do more obscure properties. If Marvel Studios had the rights, do you think wed be getting a Guardians of the Galaxy movie at this point, or Cable 2: Mary Sue Harder? Hell, Fox is doing a farking X-force movie now too trying to build their own universe, theyre introducing Bishop in the new one. They need to make up their farking minds about what version of Days of Future Past theyre doing...

And really, given how Marvel has shaped things without them, is there really room for (pre M Day/198) mutants in the MCU at this point? Say Marvel Studios has the rights to all their characters and you go back to the story from the first Avengers movie. Loki invading New York with an alien army. Who do you call? The Avengers? The Fantastic 4? The X-men? Its a lot easier to have one team saving the world, and its a problem ive already a plot hole ive heard normal people asking about in regards to the MCU movies. "If The Mandarin was such a badass and blowing shiat up everywhere why did Iron Man handle it solo? What the fark were the rest of the Avengers so busy with?" Plus if Marvel had the rights to all their teams im sure Hugh Jackman would probably be exhausted from having to be in every single movie.

I wish Marvel had the Spider-man rights though, he belongs in the MCU.

Bad rumor that got picked up and spread around having to do with when Coulson mentions dating a cellist. Wanda has never been depicted in the books as a musician, in fact the only reference in marvel comics to someone being a cellist is Kate Bishop, the female Hawkeye.

Unless theres something else i missed completely and havent heard about?


meanmutton: It's stupid to have Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch but not Wasp and Ant Man.  It's an Avengers movie and it has farking Ultron in it.  How can this not have Henry and Janet Pym?


"Because fark the founding members in the comics, RDJ is awesome, so any comic storylines we do hes going to play the part of himself and Hank Pym and Reed Richards because suck my dick" - Kevin Feige

So look forward to just Tony Stark himself deciding to shoot Banner into space in The Incredible Hulk 2 to set up Avengers 4: World War Hulk.

Actually my first thought was "oh, shiat, Avengers is stated to be based around the Ultimates version.  That's not gonna be very politically correct, or family-friendly".

// Possibly I'm a nerd for knowing what the primary distinction of the siblings in the Ultimate universe is.

You know how they hint at Coulson being The Vision a few times? They also mention he was dating some woman who is a cellist.  Guess what instrument Scarlet Witch is known for playing. Like I said VERY sneaky and you could argue it's a bit of a loose argument, but when you pair it up with the Vision stuff, it makes perfect sense and I'd say it was completely on purpose.

Because it is kind of weird to introduce a super scientist who can invent particle that make him grow smaller and larger, and THEN have him also be a computer genius that creates an evil AI, when It is much easier to recon Ultron as SHIELD mucking around with Tony Starks robotic and AI tech and accidentally creating Ultron.

That said, my guess is that maybe once Ant Man is cast, they'll introduce him as Hank Pym, the SHIELD scientist who invents Ultron, then he invents the Pym particles as part of the fight against Ultron (maybe to sneak into the computer core to disable Ultron), opening the door for the stand alone movie post-Avengers.

I'm guess at most we'll see Pym in the pos-credits scene of Avengers 2.  Or at least some hint toward Pym in that scene.  I think it's already confirmed that Pym will have nothing to do with the creation of Ultron in the MCU.

Gilliam movies suck ?


Terry Gilliam is a fantastic director who has terrible farking luck getting his movies made... The studio mucking with Brazil, then the studio being sold in the middle of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen so it didnt get a real release; hes attempted several other big budget features that never got off the ground, A Tale of Two Cities, Watchmen (yes, that Watchmen), Don Quixote; whos infamous production wound up getting a pretty great documentary made about it, http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Lost_in_La_Mancha/60026119?locale=en -US" href="http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Lost_in_La_Mancha/60026119?lo cale=en -US">Lost in La Mancha; and then probably most notably Heath Ledger dying in the middle of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Seriously, despite early sucess with the Pythons and Time Bandits, the dude is cursed.

Gunter is implying that Joss Whedon is the opposite, a terrible director with fantastic luck. Having enjoyed Whedons entire catalog i disagree with that assessment, but if youre not a Whedon fan i can understand the argument that Avengers was great in spite of him.

Pretty much, the Ant-man movie is coming out well after Avengers 2 and its going to be about Pym AND Lang (latest rumors have Paul Rudd as Hank and Rashida Jones as Janet), and its pretty much a given that Ultron is FUBARd Stark tech given that the Avengers 2 teaser shows the Iron Man helmet contorting itself into Ultrons head, so its a safe bet that SHIELD (or just Tony) mucking around with the Jarvis AI creates Ultron.

I don't give a rat's butt about Quicksilver or his sister. Or Ant Man. Just get with a frippin' Black Panther movie already.

For cereal. Black Panther. Up in Tony Stark's grill. Giving Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury a double dose of his own medicine, and maybe one scene with Captain America and T'Challa going a few rounds, just because.  America has a black President. The Blade movies made $400M world wide, and that was with a lesser known, hero, who got his start in The Tomb of Dracula.

The Black Panther, Avenger, King of Wakanda, and all around great character. Book it. Do it, Marvel. Cripes, they're talking about a Luke Cage movie, so dammit, let's get with T'Challa. Dammit.

They won't, because then there'd be demand for an actual Black Panther comic book. Which Marvel would intentionally fark up because you can't have a popular black character going around showing up the bread and butter white characters. Christopher Priest is tired of Marvel's shiat and Dwayne McDuffie is dead, so you really couldn't get a writer to do justice to T'Challa anyways.

Cyno01: So look forward to just Tony Stark himself deciding to shoot Banner into space in The Incredible Hulk 2 to set up Avengers 4: World War Hulk.


Ummm... About that. The "World War Hulk" story is NOT being done. That was a bullshiat "scoop" from the ever-full-of-shiat Latino Review, who have a tendency to throw ideas at the wall and wait to see which one turns out to be true as a matter of coincidence.

Marvel has said there is definitely not going to be a World War Hulk storyline. Their actual phrase was that the WWH rumor was "1000% inaccurate".

But bloggers online tend to be stupid and they reprint everything Latino Review says... And it often turns out to be completely wrong.

The Avengers will face Ultron, then Thanos, and then it's up in the air. Perhaps Graviton now that they've set him up in AoS.

And I suspect the push to have Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in A2 is because they plan on phasing out Tony Stark (RDJ is getting too expensive, and he's probably getting bored with the movies now) and they need replacements for the Avengers team. I bet they phase out Black Widow, too.

I suspect our 2020 MCU Avengers will be:

Captain America
Thor
Hulk
Ant Man
Quicksilver
The Scarlet Witch
Hawkeye

I would bet tomorrow's breakfast that Aaron Taylor-Johnson just signed a multi-movie deal of at least 3 Avengers films and 4 appearances in other films.

The Blade movies made $400M world wide, and that was with a lesser known, hero, who got his start in The Tomb of Dracula.

The Black Panther, Avenger, King of Wakanda, and all around great character. Book it. Do it, Marvel. Cripes, they're talking about a Luke Cage movie, so dammit, let's get with T'Challa. Dammit.

They won't, because then there'd be demand for an actual Black Panther comic book. Which Marvel would intentionally fark up because you can't have a popular black character going around showing up the bread and butter white characters. Christopher Priest is tired of Marvel's shiat and Dwayne McDuffie is dead, so you really couldn't get a writer to do justice to T'Challa anyways.

But we have such a good actor under contract already...[content.internetvideoarchive.com image 320x240]


Mentat: Stan Lee confirmed they're going to make Black Panther.


I'm still mourning Dwayne. :-(

Kind of a shame. After the first Kick-Ass, there was an interview out there about how everybody was going to come after him to play superhero characters, and he said that this was one of the reasons why the industry was so screwed up. He might have even said "farked".

Anyways, sorry to see that after that nice bit of maturity, he went on to do a Kick-Ass sequel and then sign up for the Avengers...

Brainsick: I suppose it's too much to ask for a Power man / Iron Fist movie directed in Kung Fu / Blaxploitation style by Quentin Tarantino, isn't it? Oh well...


/Who plays T'Challa?


Heroes for Hire would be better TV show.  Two guys with powers running a PI/security business trying to make ends meet is perfect for a story-of-the-week type thing, while still offering opportunities for longer arcs.  And in a world where superheroes are now common knowledge, people using their powers to make money as a business absolutely should be a thing.

I'm kinda hoping AoS will introduce them as recurring characters and later they can get a spin-off, but the show seems really intent upon the whole "we can keep this whole superpower thing secret even though the whole world saw superheroes fight off an alien invasion in New York" thing.  Still, I could see an episode in the future where SHIELD is caught off-guard by a commercial for Heroes for Hire, and the team has to figure out what to do when the business proves too public to simply make disappear.

Justin Berfield would make a better Pietro.
