To no one's surprise, Spider-Man: No Way Home is expected to have the biggest post-pandemic box office...

Post what?  We aren't "post" anything for a few more months at least.

I have no problem with that so long as they don't find a way to get into my bank account and steal my money because that's the only way I'm contributing.

SOOOOO done with CGI crap.

Unrelated-
I expect my ass is going to drive an hour or two just to watch Dune Pt. 2 in IMAX in Oct. 2023 on opening night.

I have seen Pt.1 6 times so far and it keeps getting better.

Just watched Shang Chi and (without any spoilers) although it was enjoyable the last half an hour was nothing but a cartoon!

Agreed...but it was way better than Black Widow. Wong is the next character to pop into any other Marvel movie and make it 100% better

My wife is not a fan of most comic book movies, but she loved Shang Chi.

She also loved The Boys, so I don't have a great gauge on what superhero stuff appeals to her.

So they're writing articles about what they think movies will earn at the box office before they even start?

How do I get a job doing such nothingness?

There's actual market research that goes into it. Enough that they're rarely more than a few million off.

It was devoid of anything that makes a movie memorable. They could have run with that Abomination cameo and made it fun but that scene was 100 % fan service and trailer bait. They have years of paper comics to draw inspiration from. Moench did a tremendous job in giving that title its own distinctive flavor but no. Go with the paint by the numbers crap. Im looking forward to see Spider Man mostly for Cumberbach who after a really bland showing in the the Strange movie, really made the character his own in Infinity War. We'll see.

this movie has to be 3 1/2 to 4 hours long for everything they're trying to do so it doesn't seem like 'rise of skywalker' in trying to fit a trilogy in one movie.

I don't mind because I've been a spideyfan since I was a kid but talk about trying to shoehorn everything in.

I have a feeling it's not wrapping up entirely in one movie.  This is almost certainly going to directly lead into Multiverse of Madness

Yeah, there's almost no way that No Way Home and Multiverse of Madness don't bookend each other. The easy bet is whatever Strange does to block the multiverse encroachment in NWH, he winds pulled into the multiverse himself. And they'll probably throw in some typical zinger where afterwards, no one remembers Doctor Strange except Spidey.

I very much suspect that NWH won't be all that surprising or hold any real twists, but will mostly serve as another Loki-esque exposition dump that sets up where the next round of movies are going. I'm not all that excited about it, to be honest.

NWH seems like the writers said, "okay, people love easter eggs in MCU movies, how can we make a movie entirely with easter eggs? I know! Bring back every live action villain from Spider-mans past 20 years. Lets throw in that Daredevil guy, fans seemed to like him. Heck at the point, we might as well add all the spider-men too. Book it, Done. Good work everyone."

As a huge fan of the original runs of MOKF/DHOKF, the MCU Shang Chi bears absolutely no resemblance to the comics version.  But it just reinforces my opinion that the more I liked a book as a kid, the more problem I'm going to have with the MCU version. BP,Cap Marvel and now Shang Chi were all essentially polar opposites of how I would have liked to see them adapted.

Finally saw Shang Chi and it was not bad. Kinda bugs me the bad guys don't have any actual weapons, Awkwafina can shoot a bow with no training, her and Shang Chi just kinda stare at people when they die? Shang Chi had multiple opportunities to talk to dad, tell him the big evil was faking mom's voice... Character-wise there were a ton of missed opportunities.  And Morrison the two butted no headed pigeon was weird and hard to like. But it was pretty good. More entertaining than frustrating. But the frustrating bits were very frustrating, script could have used a second pass. But with that said...

No Way Home and Multiverse of Madness are the last hurrahs of familiar old MCU, they'll do really well. Before the new MCU has to reinvent the wheel and roll new dice. I went and rewatched Raimi's Spider movies and I hope he's going to tone down the Raimi in Multiverse of Madness because those films are kinda jarring and rough now. Not smooth like MCU movies are.
