Marvel has proven they've earned my trust until proven otherwise.  So I trust Marvel in the scripting decisions.

Agreed, but I hope they clear up some of this soon.

We're told by insiders that Gerald and Weisman's characters were omitted in the newly evolved version of the script. Wilson, on the other hand, had a scheduling conflict as production on the movie got delayed, and that is why he won't be there.

This is Marvel's Benghazi.

It's a terrible concept and there is nothing they can do to make it palatable to the mainstream.

Actually, there was a party where they got into the Pym Particles, shrunk and got stepped on.

Do a good Punisher movie.  Or Luke Cage and Iron Fist.  Or Death's Head.

Someday the MCU will have their "Cars 2". Hopefully it doesn't derail the franchise, but they can't bat 1.000 forever.

I have a feeling it will derail their franchise...eventually the mainstream will get tired of comic book movies and once one tanks that will be the signal to end them for some time.

OhioUGrad: eventually the mainstream will get tired of comic book movies


what gives you reason to believe that well written, well acted, well directed, visually stunning movies will be something the mainstream will tire of?

If anything, Marvel has shown that the films are not just "comic book movies".  They are awesome films that happen to involve characters that first appeared in comics.  Guardians of the Galaxy is not a "comic book movie" and looks on track to be a huge blockbuster.

For that matter, The Dark Knight was not a comic book movie.  Neither was Man Of Steel.  Neither was Kick-Ass.  Hell, neither was Scott Pilgrim.

Is The Walking Dead a "comic book" show?

This is a troll.....right?

Marvel movies have been forgettable garbage so far; cliche'd scripts, stale dialogue, both of which lead to what seems to be poor acting.  But they bring in tons of money from the young teen crowd and those in their 30's who like Buffy-type shows.  Please don't pass them off as something more than say...'Independence Day'

There have been comic book and comic strip movies since the 1930s. LOTS of them. Blondie. Lil Abner. Buck Rogers. Batman. Superman. Jungle Jim. Mandrake. Little Orphan Annie. Brenda Starr... and SOOOO many more.

Why would people suddenly get sick of comic book/comic strip movies NOW, after loving them for over 80 years?

You'd be surprised how many things came from comic books and comic strips.

Hell, people loved the Blondie movies so much that they kept making them for the better part of a couple decades. There are in the neighborhood 28 Blondie movies in one franchise, and that's not counting the side-projects in other countries and the multiple TV series that people soaked up in the 20th century.

They've not only remade Little Orphan Annie many times, but they've also made a Broadway play out of it.

Seriously, you underestimate just how much people love comic books and comic strips as films. This is not new by any means, and it's not going to end any time soon.

Even if this somehow turns out to be a pile of shiat, it won't derail the MCU. By this point, they've put out so many movies that people have enjoyed that they could probably put out 2 or 3 stinkers in a row before it starts to really affect the numbers. And one of those would have to be a major franchise like Iron Man or Captain America.

All good points.. and you just reminded me that Annie, the musical, the movie, started my love of musical theater, and I haven't watched it in years, I need to fix that.

Do you work for Marvel? You know what leads me to believe that.....the same thing happened in the 90s, the same thing happened with comic book movies, the same thing happened with 3d.....

They also go in spurts, now it's CONSTANT every year there is a new one. I'm not saying after the next flop people will totally never watch a comic book themed movie again....but they will probably walk away from them for a while.

I forgot faux-nerds were so easily butthurt.

Of course they aren't To Kill A Mockingbird level of movie. They are based on comic books, which are the only things more cliched and that make less sense than comic book movies.

Marvel movies scratch that basic itch exactly the way I want them to though. When what I want is action, humor, and special effects following a plot that I promise I won't think about too closely Marvel so far delivers.

They're better than Transformers (n-1) or 80s Franchise Reboot 33.

Marvel is destined to screw up sooner or later. They are hyper aware of this, and they are now second guessing themselves. I didn't think the departure of Edgar Wright was a bad sign, but this is starting to look really, really bad.

Honestly I think if RDJ and Tom Hiddleston didn't knock it out of the park in their roles, IM3 and Thor 2 (and most likely Thor 3) wouldn't have done nearly as well.  As soon as either leaves (or doesn't become the main character) those movies I expect to tank.  No one is watching Thor for Thor, and no one is watching Iron Man for the gripping tales of another jilted businessman who wants to get back at Tony.

IM2, 3, both Thors (the second less than the first) and Hulk were not good.

But IM3 and Thor 2 were followed by the fantastic Captain america and most like GotG, so they'll keep the gravy train rolling.
