That's a really good way to turn your franchise into a joke.

Ugh remember the Star Wars prequel tie-ins?  I think I saw Yoda and Darth Vader on everything except condoms.

And "Scarlet Witch" is an apt description of what you will see in the toilet after eating it.

And turning into a man just to eat the burger. Because - and this is their actual sales pitch - women can't handle it. And you better believe some people have a problem with this.

I want DOFP to be a good movie, but things like their version of Quicksilver makes me think at least portions of the movie just outright suck.

The fanboys just don't want a franchise they love selling out. They've invested their time and money buying the tickets, buying the DVDs, buying the video games, buying the toys, buying the posters, buying the costumes, buying the limited edition commemorative glasses, buying the bedsheets, buying the cereal, buying the flamethrower (the kids love that one), buying the funny foam, buying the special edition director's cut DVD's with 15, count 'em, 15 frames of extra footage, and buying the special uber limited edition adamantium coated wheelbarrow tire/aluminum siding cover.

It would be a shame if, after all that effort, the franchise just became a bunch of sellouts.

I'd put Carl's Jr./Hardee's in the top tier when it comes to fast food burger joints.  I love their western bacon burger.

Plus, they have a commercial where Sara Underwood and Emily Ratajkowski are wearing very little.  For that alone they deserve a Nobel Prize.

I get that sentiment, yet I have no problem with spending what money I do have on products if they come from a quality IP. My thought being that the studios need THAT kind of feedback if they are to make more quality movies.

Those that are taken in by ordering an X-tra™ sandwich that is cut three times to mimic Wolverine's Claws™ deserve to be treated to a shiat movie. but I in no way regret buying the extended cuts of Lord of the Rings on DVD then on Blu-Ray.

Will the Suits understand why people like me will spend money on some of their offerings and not others? Maybe, maybe not. But to the best of my knowledge, it is the language they speak, and until such time as we can get the point across that we DO want to see more than Bay-splosions and the occasional foobie, it's all we have.

It's weird that unless Marvel Studios is doing the movie themselves, I just don't care about any movie Marvel related. The latest X-Men movie? Don't care. The latest Spider-Man movie? Don't care. The Guardians of the Galaxy? Sign me up!

And I've come across a few people like this. I wonder why this is so.

Meanwhile, with this commercial, I don't understand why they couldn't have simply bleached Evan Peters hair to silver blonde? Why does Singer love to put his actors in horrible wigs?

No, Mystique had to turn into a guy so the guy could hawk it. Because women can't eat bacon or some kind of crap.

Eh, you're far from John Pinette...or as fans of this thread know him, "Mr. Bumpo"

FWIW Carl's Jr/Hardee's is far better than McDonald's lately...

Yeah after reading an article that said something along the line of they added Quicksilver to the movie just so they could create one sweet effects scene with a super high FPS camera I decided I wasn't so excited about the movie anymore.

/Can't imagine Marvel writes their scripts around a sweet shot.

taxandspend: Wait a second... Quicksilver is going to be in Days of Future Past  andAvengers: Age of Ultron?


Different universes, different companies,  so different versions of the character.  The Marvel versions of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch can't mention being mutants (probably going with the "inhumans" idea), and can't mention their Daddy issues because they can't mention Daddy.

But I'd look to Marvel to have the better version, anyway.  I think this advertising campaign is as much about getting money from Hardees as it is about getting their version out first and more often.  That way Fox can make Marvel look like they are ripping them off.

Probably has to do with the fact that the ones not done by Marvel mostly suck. Whereas the ones done by Marvel tend to be very good.

One of those oddball entertainment lawquirks that gave you a TV Movie AND 100-million dollar film reboots of "Poseidon Adventure", these guys on the radio delve into it-sorta firewall in the Marvel Universe films/tv-like when Daredevil did "Kingpin" it IMMEDIATELY removed him from "Spider-Man 3", where Raimi had planned him to be The Big Bad
