This is shaping up to be the best of the Thor movies. Or at least the most fun.
Wasn't that obvious from the end-credits scene?

I'm still hoping that either Red Skull or Zemo comes back. Preferably Zemo since he's the only villain who's managed to win in an MCU movie.

i think Red Skull is the most likely--first off, he's the most famous Captain America villain ever. second, his death was never actually shown--he coulda just been transported to some other planet to start working for Thanos or something. third, i don't think he's been used to his full potential yet. fourth, it would just be too compelling for him to turn out to be the man behind the man for a future MCU movie involving space. who knows? maybe he'll be in the stinger for Guardians of the Galaxy 2

I have a confession to make. I have never, ever watched single minute of any Marvel superhero movie, and have no desire to do so in the future either. However, I have watched all the reviews RLM have made of them in Half of the Bag  tongue

Superheroes are not my thing, I read other comics growing up. There are only three exceptions in media where I liked them:
- Batman 1989 (and only that film)
- Smallville TV series
- Dredd 2012

Smallville got bit stale in later season when they started adopting more elements from the comics which I didn't care for and most of the original characters had been killed off or otherwise thrown under the buss (except for Clark and Chloe) but overall it was a great series.

You know, it's not entirely fair to not see any Marvel movie based on RLM reviews. If anything else, you should at least see a few. Only then can a fair judgement be made.

I just wanna see them having discussion of whatever and if it's review of superhero movie, I watch it for their sake

Red Skull is not coming back unless they release Hugo Weaving from his contract and recast. He said he wanted no part of any more movies. Although Skull is beast.

Also Zemo is terrible. He should have been Dr. Faustus in Civil War. Since that is basically who they made him.

RLM is a blight on the film review world. Also I bet you have watched superhero movies that you didn't realize were ones? Eh doesn't matter. You are just missing out on more than just the Marvelized films then. Shrug.


FACEPALM....Supernova? Sigh. Well hope they do this one right this time. Also it is really early to do the Dark Phoenix Saga.

How much of Weaving not coming back was Perlmutter's fault? Because I know that prior to the big split, he was a big reason of the backstage drama. With him out of the Marvel movie branch, it is possible that Kevin Feige can make a new deal to have him come back?

As for the Dark Phoenix, it really does feel like Fox is trying to make up for X3 even more then we thought they would. I give them credit with trying to do the right thing, but...maybe a new director or some form of new blood since Bryan Singer might have lost some of his mojo. I know what happen to the series without him, but the X-Men series needs something new WITHOUT messing everything up via X3.

I am not sure any of it was his with Weaving. He expressed a weary disdain for the circus act surrounding high-profile movies after the Matrix, LOTR, V for Vendetta, etc. and I think he also felt the part wasn't meaty enough and the method they used for his Red....skull was pretty uncomfortable.

All that said, removing that drama, seeing the evolution of the MCU and also having a bit of a break from blockbusters might just be the kick he needs to spur on a second turn as the Skull. It would be great to make Skull a bigger villain and get the spotlight again. Aside from Loki, Marvel has done a pretty poor job of treating their character's arch-nemeses right. I mean Dormammu had a clever but disappointing scene, Skull was a one-off, Hulk hasn't faced his, and Iron Man....yeah that was the one noted travesty to befall the MCU to date.


They are. Very intriguing. I also have a bit of good news, barring a change of heart, Singer said he wanted to take a break from the X-Men following Apocalypse (not leaving) so perhaps you will get the new blood you seek. Maybe even Matthew Vaughn will return?


Logan looks interesting btw. Don't know what to say really.

What about Ultron? Couldn't one argue that he was Tony Stark's arch-nemeses as well as one that was done right?

It's good to see that Singer is taking a break from the X-Men movies. I like him, but really does need some time to refresh himself and get some new ideas.

Also, rumor has it that Eva Green is in talks to play Lady Death. If this happens, then it won't be any wonder that Thanos would want to court her. Laughing

With Fox making the Fantastic 4 toxic with their 3 failed movies and Sony being desperate for cash and giving Marvel part of the rights back, which superhero rights will go back to Marvel first: F4 or Spiderman?

EDIT: Pierce Brosnan may have been cast as Cable for Deadpool 2. Never thought that he of all people would have been interested.

Ultron is an Avengers villain. Like Thanos for instance. The only time Ultron had a connection to Stark was in the film. I believe Pym was more integral in the comics.

Eva Green is cool. I have no opinion on Death so she could probably do it. Too bad Ryan Reynolds wasn't with the MCU then too I guess.

Pierce Brosnan is a BAMF so that would be cool. He would be the coolest actor associated with the Summers family. lol


Lastly.....F4 is more likely. Fox could retain X-Men still and while F4 has an awesome rogues gallery and Fox hates Marvel...Sony isn't giving up Spider-Man after winning the negotiations.

yeah, i seem to remember reading somewhere that it was originally Pym who had a hand in making Ultron (whereas in the movie it's Banner)

i think even if Marvel does get Fantastic Four back, they might not be touching it for a while, if at all as part of the MCU (unless they just bring in the Fantastic Four or Doom as part of the crossover), since they don't have the best track record as far as film adaptations go

But doesn't conventional wisdom say that it's only a matter of time before Marvel gets the rights back anyway considering how bad of a shape that Sony's U.S. movie branch is in?

Frank Darabont is might be directing & rewriting the Gambit movie.

Rhedo not likely. Even if Sony shuts down Sony, Columbia and Tri-Star they have no risk holding on to Spider-Man. They keep a share of the profits for all the movies and Marvel does the grunt work. Sony would have to go under all the way.


Dead--Yeah, they have to get the Guardians into the movie somehow and Strange, Thor and Hulk.

Wouldn't it be possible to just make the first Wolverine movie non-canon (which Fox partly did anyway via last year's Deadpool movie) and somehow make the other 2 (the last one and this one) canon?

The last Wolverine film is canon. Or I guess it was before DoFP, I sort of assume it still happened, because otherwise it's a pretty pointless entry, more so than Origins which at least more or less got overwritten and we don't need to speak of it again.

Also, Logan is canon, according to the director. http://comicbook.com/2017/01/23/logan-director-clarifies-hugh-jackmans-x-men-continuity-statemen/

Problem is, I feel like it'll get written out of continuity anyway. They want to continue the franchise, and a film like this kind of puts the cap on where things can go.

It does feel like it's a matter of time before it gets non-canonized, or at least partly non-canonized. I guess it all depends upon how well it does and how the fanbase receives it.

They can just explain it away without decanonizing it. It just isn't part of the continuity of the main X-Men series. Which frankly is sort of not a big deal as it is since neither Jackman nor Stewart figure in the plans prominently, if at all in it. They won't be back so they don't need to make special plans/concessions for their iterations and can go anywhere with the story.

Would have liked a sequel to the Wolverine though. Sort of just cliffhangs.

Well, I guess whatever they do with it can't make it feel more disjointed than the Wolverine series itself.

Wolverine: Origins: Terrible, and completely overwritten by DoFP. Can commed it because the awful things it did helped make better things, like Deadpool.

The Wolverine: Sort of canon. The Xavier cameo at the end I believe is hinting at being needed later for DoFP, but its further into the future. Rest of the film is probably non-canon to the First Class universe.

Logan: assumingly canon to the First Class/post-DoFP universe, further into the timeline. However, more than likely to be kicked out of canon, unless the entire X-universe is rebooted again.

on my own part, i actually liked Origins: Wolverine. that said, i'm not a fan of the original comics (as in i never read them, not that i tried and hated 'em; i bet i'd like them if i took the time to do so)--i guess i'd classify it as so-bad-it's-good, but i'd never say it's a favorite of mine. in relation to any other Marvel movies, i'd say the only thing to carry over from there besides Reynolds as a proper Deadpool would be to bring back Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth; i think he fits much better than whoever they had as him in the first X-Men movie

I remember that Pro. X had a love fling with Lilandra, the empress/queen of an alien humaniod bird race. Does Fox have the right to all members or does Marvel still own those rights?

Also, I heard they are cold-blooded. How can they be cold-blooded if they evolved from birds?

If the Shi'ar are owned by Fox, then why haven't we seen them on film? We should have at least seen their Queen/Empress Lilandra, considering how her relationship with Xaiver?

They haven't gone into space yet. Plus the Shi'ar aren't big names. We haven't had any films really even focus on the Summers family yet and they would be a much better gateway to the Shi'ar than Xavier, since their father is Corsair, a space pirate/hero with dealings with the Shi'ar. Had Scott and Alex Summers been a focal point earlier, they might have been introduced earlier.

Xavier's bigger love interest in the one that has been in the films a few times already, Moira MacTaggert.

Given the title of the new movie and a link to the Dark Phoenix, they have a good chance of showing up now.

The problem most likely lies with the Academy’s demographics, since as of 2012 the median age of voters was 62 – not, traditionally, the audience that has the most passion for superhero movies. Comic books have always been pigeon-holed as a children’s property, and it make senses that label would carry over to any subsequent big screen endeavors.

With Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis in Black Panther, I wonder if they will get screen time together. My inner LOTR/Hobbit fanboy would squee with delight at seeing Bilbo and Gollum onscreen again!
