This is actually a teaser for a teaser trailer which will be released in 3 days, which is kind of sad, unless the full trailer premiere is only going to be shown during the next episode of "Russell Crowe's Fighting 'Round the World" or something similar

This made me excited. A trailer... for a trailer. And I hate comic books.

Marvel knows what they're doing.

Good luck DC.

I don't think Marvel Studios has really had a miss yet. What's considered their worst one?  Iron Man 2?  Even that wasn't really bad. It just wasn't as great as everyone expected.

On the other hand, look at DC. The only real successful one they can point to is the Nolan trilogy.  Everything else is a mess.

Speaking of DC Films:

One of my biggest complaints of Man of Steel (outside of making Superman dark) was that the action was so fast and so blurry, you couldn't see what was going on.  Same issue with Transformers.  too much shakycam, too much blurry CGI kibble.

Godzilla, the majority of the action is in dark scenes but you can make out EXACTLY what is going on.

Something to be said for that.

The Incredible Hulk was the worst critically and at the box office. It really suffered I think because Iron Man got most of the attention at the time, and they just didn't have enough production talent at the time to juggle two releases without one being sub-par.

Captain America didn't do huge box office numbers either, but I really liked the movie. It gets better in retrospect when you consider how critical it was to setting up current events in the MCU.

It didn't do as well as they had hoped state side but killed internationally. So I think it's fair to say it did ok.

Also Cap 2 surpassed expectations.

And I agree that of the marvel made movies the two hulks were the weakest leaks with te first hulk ABSOLUTELY sucking the chrome off of a trailer hitch.

If we're talkin all marvel properties (such as the ones held by fox and Sony) then I present both fantastic fours and both ghost riders (although the second was marginally better).

GotG is definitely a gamble for Marvel as its more of a Sci-Fi/Space adventure series than a traditional superhero series, but the comics have mostly gotten positive reviews, even if the series has come and gone a few times.
  Mostly they have a lot of involvement with Thanos, which is why i think Marvel is taking the chance at adding them to the MCU.

Nice, the new Bert Macklin movie looks pretty good so far. Though it's just going to be Judy Hitler as the villian/love interest again I bet.

On a side note, I found out today that the faux Mandarin in Iron Man 3, played by Ben Kingsley, was a double fake-out.  Turns out, there really is a Mandarin and he's a bit pissed off at how his persona was misused in the events of IM 3.

I suspect we know who the villain will be in IM 4, if it happens.

Ignore the subtitles, this is the best copy I can find right now.

I've seen this argument before and I don't understand it. What, people don't see sci-fi adventure movies? It's similar to the "No-one knows who the GotG are, this movie will bomb" argument. No-one knew who Luke Skywalker was either. If the movie is good and gets positive reception it will do well regardless of the source material. Lots of movies are based on lesser known comic books and do just fine (off the top of my head, Kick-Ass, Men in Black, Ghost World, 300, A History of Violence...)

Yeah, but just look at that big Disney flop from last fall. I can't believe they tried to make a movie based off The Snow Queen. There were like three people who actually knew that fairy tale. No wonder it faded into obscurity.

The good old Author's Saving Throw (TVTropes link, so if you had stuff to do, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED).

I think that Marvel looked things over and decided that there was just enough backlash to warrant the one-shot.  That, and they probably had some ideas they wanted to do with the Mandarin that they can now explore.

I also think that they're probably going to hold off until the Infinity Gems (is that what they are?) take a larger role, since some of his abilities were more fantastical.  The challenge is probably going to be making him work without him being the racist caricature that he reportedly is (someone with more knowledge of him than me can confirm or deny that).

For the record, I liked the way things were handled in Iron Man 3, and I'd be interested to see how they tackle issues in future installments.

It's a thing now.  They did it for the Game of Thrones Season 4 trailer as well.


Mad_Radhu: The Incredible Hulk was the worst critically and at the box office.


I'm glad it didn't do well.  Mark Ruffalo is a superior Bruce Banner, in my opinion.  I can't imagine Edward Norton's Banner bantering with Tony Stark quite the same way.  But then I saw Avengers before TIH, so people who saw TIH first may feel otherwise.

/I enjoy Avengers more now I've seen all the other films
//That movie did nothing to make you care about the characters, it assumed you already did

I will give you that Man of Steel has the possibility of being fantastic if they use it as a stepping stone to his next movie. If it shows him learning from his many mistakes in MoS I will think they knew what they were doing.

That being said, the whole Pa Kent story was horribly written and wasted.

SPOILERS

I disagree. Loki on the throne frees up Odin to make moves related to Phase 3. My read of the final scene between the two is that Odin saw right through Loki's trick, but, knowing that Thor's mind is on Midgard, he had no choice but to let Loki take the throne so he could take greater action. The Infinity Gauntlet didn't make a cameo in the first Thor for no reason, after all...

How can you disagree with me when you aren't arguing against my point. My point is the whole movie was about getting loki to the throne. The villain of the movie was never really explained. Nor were the coincidences of padme accidently teleporting exactly to the right place to find the hidden mcguffin and magically coming back. And cell phone service working through a portal into another dimension? Really? The gatekeeper not doing anything about the obvious bad guy he couldn't see, even though he can see anything?It was a poorly written plot.

I think what he's trying to say is that the rest of the movie was crap. Everything with the Dark Elves? Poorly written, barely explained crap used as an excuse to get Loki to the throne for the next movie.

The Thor movies are the weakest so far in the MCU. There's no real reason for Thor to be into Jane Foster other than simple "First girl he met on Earth" syndrome. Hemsworth and Portman have zero chemistry together. At least in the comics and some cartoon versions there's a reason Thor has the hots for Foster.

The Dark Elves predate the known universe and want to bathe the existing universe in darkness so their kind can thrive again. Bor and the Asgardians stopped this plan by defeating said Elves and stealing their weapon, the Aether. Did you miss the first five minutes of the movie?

The first movie established that Heimdall's senses can be blocked when then-King Loki goes to Jotunheim, so...yeah.

Just because a person talks for 5 minutes doesn't mean what they are saying is good.

And cell phone service working through a portal into another dimension? Really? The gatekeeper not doing anything about the obvious bad guy he couldn't see, even though he can see anything?It was a poorly written plot.

The Dark Elves predate the known universe and want to bathe the existing universe in darkness so their kind can thrive again. Bor and the Asgardians stopped this plan by defeating said Elves and stealing their weapon, the Aether. Did you miss the first five minutes of the movie?

The first movie established that Heimdall's senses can be blocked when then-King Loki goes to Jotunheim, so...yeah.

Just because a person talks for 5 minutes doesn't mean what they are saying is good.

Him not being able to see something is a HUGE red alert. It isn't just a "nah, I guess I just had something in my eye. Anyway, back to work."


So the "H" stands for head. Empty Head. How fitting.

I am trying to point out what I see as flaws in the writing of a movie. You like the movie, and that is great, and you are providing reasons you do not agree with my assertion. I am all cool with that. But personal attacks just because we disagree. Really?

Anyway, back on point, I think it is the weakest recent Marvel movie for many reasons. Obviously some people don't agree with me and that is totally okay. I am still really excited about GotG. Captain America 2 was excellent and saw it twice in the theater. Marvel is doing great.

Thor 2 is a set up for Guardians, mainly the Collector (Benicio Del Toro) getting his hands on the Power Gem (red) that the Dark Elves were using. The Tesseract is the Space Gem, and at the end of Cap 2, it looks like Loki really did have the Mind Gem the whole time. Guardians is Starlord stumbling onto another Gem and Thanos sending Nebula and Ronan after him.
