This whole thing looks like an X-Men knockoff, which is mainly due to how Ike Perlmutter, the head of Marvel Comics and TV shows after the Marvel split, wanted his own version of the X-Men, since he knew he couldn't get them back from Fox.

For some reason, the impression I got from this pretty lousy image was along the lines of:

"The Desaturated Technicolor Addams Family.... on a bad budget cut"

Could this be another TV misfire for Marvel? It would certainly be another sign of reversing fortunes.

It's odd isn't it? Marvel has problems translating their movie success into TV and comic book success and DC has problems translating their TV and comic book success into movie success ever since the Nolan Batman trilogy. (Even earlier if you count the 2011 Green Lantern movie.)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 was really good. I would give it a 9/10.

i'd give it closer to a 7, an 8.5 at the highest (which admittedly does put it closer to 9/10 but w/e Razz ). i think the first one is better in general, but i think the second got alot more laughs out of me, and it gets extra points for its compelling villain, the special effects, and Yondu

So far, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 has made $431,548,346. That's a 54% box office opening increase from the first Guardians Of The Galaxy.

It would certainly seem that Marvel's overseas-first release strategy has paid off; at almost half a billion already! I bet Universal are feeling all the more confident in this plan for JW2, even if it's likely to be less Chris Pratt centric than GotG Vol 2. Certainly the guy needed a boost after the lackluster reception to Passengers.

As a sidenote, I thoroughly enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, and definitely consider it superior to the original in many categories. But I will admit the 80s soundtrack of the original is still much better and more iconic it its own way.

And this is just the first MCU movie to come out this year. We have Spider-Man Homecoming and Thor 3. Between those 3 and Star Wars 8, it's safe to say that unless Wonder Woman is excellent and Justice League is even better, Disney is going to bulldoze the competition for another year.

BTW, did you see the Midnight's Edge video about Spider-Man that I posted?

Spider-Man Homecoming will dominate the latter half of the summer and Thor: Ragnarok has a strong likability factor right from the first trailer, one that could potentially give the Justice League a nasty roasting, even if it is decently received. It's not unusual for critically reviled films to do well at the box office (look at Transformers) but Justice League's success is largely tied to Wonder Woman. The wait is putting me on edge, since I don't exactly trust word of anyone who's seen the film and would rather see for myself. But my enjoyment of the DC films could be described as sharply decreasing from Man of Steel to Suicide Squad. Wonder Woman needs to buck the trend

But besides that, Logan remains my favourite superhero movie of the year, so far, so as far as I'm concerned Fox has a lot to be proud of with just one film.

Also, yes I did see Midnight's Edge Spider-Man video, and it certainly puts things into perspective as far as the Sony-Marvel deal is concerned. I admitted to being somewhat curious about Jumanji, indifferent to The Dark Tower and in sheer disgust at The Emoji Movie. So anything to tip the scales in Marvel's favour is on the agenda for me as well.

Kevin Feige gives an update on the Fantastic 4 rights and...it's the status quo.

I still think that Fox will sell the rights to Marvel and get a lot of cash in return. Nobody can trust them with the rights anymore. Not with Fant4stic making the brand so highly toxic.

I just have to wonder how Fox will plan to proceed with yet another Fantastic Four movie if anyone with even a passing awareness will be so universally against it, not just film geeks. I can sort of see where Feige is coming on dealing with the now toxic property, they're doing very well with their Avengers and Guardians teams, and don't need an old fashioned version of that. The First Family need Marvel Studios more than Marvel Studios need them. At this point, they're content to wait.

And they can't get away what they did with the Corman version back in 1994-i.e. make a movie and not released it. Even Tom Rothman wouldn't do something like that. Not in this golden age of PR. As for Marvel, even when they get the rights back, (I still think the Fox will sell them back) that they won't be in MCU as the F4 for a long time. We would see some characters get introduced one at a time and have Dr. Doom be the main villain for an Avengers movie. But we'd have to wait for an F4 movie for a while. And the brand really does need that time to detox.

like i said before, i could see Doctor Doom--and only Doctor Doom--being introduced to the larger MCU as an antagonist since he's one of the more powerful and compelling Marvel villains in a general sense, with maybe a token mention of the Fantastic Four but not bringing them to focus. he could be retconned as the new secret leader of Hydra or something, the "true" successor to Red Skull, or possibly an enemy of Doctor Strange (because of his magical abilities) while also probably having a rivalry with Iron Man in the same way that Iron Monger did, retconning his powered armor as an imitation of Tony's.

That would be cool to see. That and him him take out of of the original members of the Avengers as a way to redeem himself for all the crappy movies he's been through.

It looks like Kevin Feige wants to reunite Marvel as a whole.

Unless they make a deal with Fox to borrow the X-Men, I honestly don't see them getting the rights back. Fox, for all of it's past faults, has treated the X-Men quite well. Yes, there was the Rothman era, but they've more then made up for that and repaired the damage done by ret-conning X3 and most of Wolverine: Origins out of existence via Days Of Future Past. So unless Fox goes in debt, which I don't see happening since they've always been a profitable company, even under the reign of Rothman, I don't fathom Marvel getting the full rights back.

Spider-Man and Fantastic 4 however, that's another story. Sony's not in a position to successfully pull their power and Fox has made the F4 into something that's so toxic, at least as long as they own them, that nobody can ever believe that they can make a good F4 movie. Even if they made a good one, few people are going to see it.

Sony cast Tom Hardy as Venom.

They did this on purpose just so that it would be THAT much harder for people not to see the movie and let the deal with Disney/Marvel end.

Crikey, Sony really is playing hardball in trying to keep Spider-Man and his characters in their fold. Putting a big name actor like Hardy in the role of Venom, whether anyone really wants that or not. But without Spider-Man, its like casting a great Two-Face but not having Batman to fight him.

To be fair, Sony has always tried to do Spider-Man justice. So in hindsight, we should have expected this. That being said, unless they do a Venom vs. Carnage route, which would be interesting to see, I don't know how this can work.
