As an Iron Man fan, I was, and still am, excited for Armor Wars. I'm of a mixed opinion here...

On the one hand, turning it into a movie would mean better FX, more action.

On the other hand, the limited series approach has better character development.

It kind of depends on how much story they have. A two-and-a-half hour movie stretched out to six episodes might be a little on the slow side. It's possible they realized they just didn't have enough plot to sustain a full series.

Uh, they have about sixty years of material so you might want to get a bigger bottle for your tears.

On the positive side, if the story become core to the overall MCU narrative, putting it into theatres will mean more eyes will see it. And certain elements of the original story might fit better as parts of other movies or series.

Finally, box office revenue might be a much higher return compared to Disney+ revenue. Personally, I have no idea how they might compare.

You want it to stop, make it stop. All you have to do is call every single person on the planet and tell them to stop liking what you don't like. Simple and easy.

And frankly, if you're not willing to put in that bare minimum of effort, it can't actually bother you that much.

You think there's a lot of comics...

Yeah they never dropped entire movies they announced nor bounced directors on the reg before Endgame. This is truly unusual for them and, because of that fact, are doomed to fail

FFS, it's like people think the only MCU movies that exist are 3 of the 4 Avengers movies

Frankly, I imagine this is for "economic" reasons. It doesn't even say it's going to be a theatrical release. Could just go straight to Disney+

They are really burning through old content.

The name's probably derived from the comics. With today's zeitgeist, it sounds like a medieval forging reality show.

I was always a big fan of iron man comics. Also Im like the only iron man 2 fan on the planet.
However I don't see how an armor wars movie would be really any different than iron man 1,2 & some of 3.
I like Rhoady as a character but not sure what they can do visually to set it apart.
Anyway, I'm here for it. Don Cheadle is great.
 
2022-09-30 7:49:18 AM  
Looking forward to this.  This means a bigger, better budget, less bloating, and a sharper focus on Don Cheadle/Rhodey, which as always good.  The only drawback I'm seeing is that it will take away some development for RiRi Williams' character, who is supposed to be featured in the story.  I always thought the character had a lot of potential, but I was never that thrilled with how she was handled in the comics.  I was hoping the TV series would help revitalize her the way the MCU did with some other lackluster comic characters, and now she'll definitely get less screen time in a movie.  But here's hoping they pull it off anyway.

I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at, but when I say "for economic reasons" I mean they don't want to spend the money on a series. This may end up being a movie on a Disney+ budget, not the normal MCU movie budget. But we'll see

What an interesting book. When from the eyes of the Armor, it was freaking awesome. When from the people who found the armor, it was really really bad.

I know it looks like a lot, but when you consider the number of films and shows released each year, comic movies are actually a small percentage of what's out there. They actually represented a much  higher percentage of films in the 1930s and 1940s than they do now because they didn't make near as many movies or TV shows in those decades.

So if you're asking "when will it end?" I'd say never, because Hollywood has been using comic strips and comic books as source material since the dawn of film. It's not a new trend. It has actually lessened in comparison to the 1930s and 1940s. There were Blondie and Li'l Abner cinematic universes that had dozens of movies (sometimes dozens per year) long before the MCU existed.

I guess what I'm trying to say is GET OVER IT because comics are a part of film history and they will remain a part of the cinema's future.

That's what I was thinking. There aren't enough details right now about the plans, but I could see them starting to make smaller (1.5 hour) movies that "fill in gaps" directly for D+. Especially if said movies are specifically centered on a known character or two, so there's little needed in terms of background or character development.

She's apparently a sizeable part of the new Black Panther movie.

Karma Chameleon: Good lord how many farking comics are there. Make it stop


Main Marvel Comics from 1963 (FF #1) to 2020 is about 28,000 issues. Add in Marvel Age and ashcans and all kinds of little non-mainstream things and you're looking at 30,000 individual issues, easily, each one holding 20-64 pages on average. I would argue that issues after about 2014 should count because Avengers 2 put the final nail in the Marvel Comics Universe and relegated the issues to story testbeds instead of the main source of inspiration.

The will never run out of material. Only the motive to spin it to gold.

This has potential, mainly because Cheadle is a good actor and was a solid choice for Rhody.

But since it'll probably be another comedy, it will suck.

I think it's more some people have a problem with not treating comic material seriously. Even if the material isn't serious in the first place. Or at least that's their excuse for hating the lady-lead show. To be clear, not everyone who doesn't like the show is that person, but some

Are we pretending Endgame took the material seriously?
