I just saw an article about the new marvel movie being shown for free and how China might not even show the film.
That got me thinking.

The next two movies are based on characters I’ve never heard of. So meh…
The trailers don’t exactly peak any interest either.
Seriously, watch the eternals trailer.
Black widow was ok at best. (5years to late)

Here’s a list of the next movies.

Shang chi… who?
The eternals….. who?
Spider man…. Ok, last one was great.
Dr strange… first one bored me to death, awful main villain
Thor… girl power
Black panther…over hyped, overrated
The marvels…. Who again?
Ant man…. Didn’t think much of the first two
Guardian 3… has to be better than number two
Fantastic four… has yet to be even one good fantastic four movie.

No iron man, no captain, no hulk, Thor is replaced.

Is anyone excited about these films?
I’m not seeing it.
At least put out a good trailer like the did for Godzilla v Kong.

Thoughts?



Yawn…
They are our protectors and haven’t interfered….
Apparently the two alien invasions wasn’t serious enough.

I haven’t intentionally watched a single Marvel movie yet.
Actually wait, I have seen Guardians of the Galaxy.
Before that was the original spider man movies with Toby McGuire (the real spider man)

But as for captain Thor, or hulk man, I haven’t seen any of them.

Is ninja turtle marvel?
I watched the original 2 when I was a kid.

ETA - how long until marvel makes a new hero - Jihad man.
His special power could be from a US nuke.
But he survived the fall out...and he’s back.
Able to detonate a jihad vest and live - every time.
He sets out hunting the Taliban - the very same Taliban that killed his family.
But soon one of the marvel guys takes notice ....and possibly finds him attractive.
So he asks jihad man to join “the gang”.
Because it has to be partially woke, jihad man and the black guy fall in love.
But soon they both must face a dire decision- one that could cost them their relationship or the lives of people of earth.
Will their love for one another be able to stand the trials and tribulations to come?!

I liked Black Panther a lot. I thought it was very well done. I especially liked the villian-Killgore..? Killmonmger...?

I hear that Super Man wants to have a sex change ...

But they can't cut it off ...

Unless ...

Batman makes a surgical knife from Kryptonite ...

And the two move in to Wayne Manor together.

They rename the Manor to Woke Manor

And they all live happily ever after ... until the next movie.

im excited to see all things marvel... im not a superfan or anything... i just find they're mostly really good

the mini series were really good too... loki was great... Falcon and the winter soldier was pretty cool

wandavision was lame until the last 3 episodes...

Idk much about the eternals... but theres going to be cameos all through the rest of them by older heros

Hugh jackman is coming back as wolverine i hear

im hopeing the rest of the Xmen make an appearance somewhere... likely not in the new Xmen movie but who knows

Marvel movies are great stuff... plus theres no movies that are remotely interesting anymore

hollywood just reboots everything lately... they're out of ideas so why not look to comics

Marvel's always sucked. The only good series they've ever had was the X-men. Spiderman's a whiny bitch, Iron Man's a #tier version of batman, Thor is #. Stan Lee was an arrogant asshole.

DC kinda pisses me off too. I'll take Dark Horse comics any day.

Also, # marvel they killed the dark horse Star Wars comics after Disney bought star. The dark horse star wars comics were awesome.

Tales of the Jedi, the Kotor comics, the dawn of the jedi, knight errant. so many good comics that were so much better than the movies cancelled because marvel and disney.

# 'em.

I can't stand Marvel movies save a handful (Ironic considering my avatar, that's just cos I want to snap all the politicians away). They're pure propaganda since the big D acquired them, political BS designed to influence kids to the garbage narrative spewing forth from our totally competent leaders. I like the original Iron Man, it was great, Thor Ragnarok and Winter Soldier. The rest are overhyped trash where you think you're gonna get a decent superhero fight but it's laced with stupid quips and juvenile humor, it's infuriating.

There are 3 DC movies that are way better than anything Marvel has done with a darker, more serious tone: Man Of Steel, Batman v Superman (Extended) and Snyders Justice League. IMO

Marvel Millennial Movies.

Best superhero film is Unbreakable.

They're riding on the coattails of the Infinity Stones saga and its success, cashing in with cheaper movies (cheaper to make doesn't automatically mean a lower budget, you can still nicely use the budget to transfer away money to avoid profit taxes, no profit, no taxes; except the regular income tax but you can set up other foreign listed companies that provide various overpaid 'services' and media products to avoid those again. I suspect that's why Disney movies are always so expensive, in terms of budget, to lower the profits of the company that is actually listed in the US and pays US tax rates for whatever profit they're making, i.e the Disney corporation is making).

Black widow didn't need her own movie as much as Hawkeye doesn't need his own movie, but hey, she's a superheroine to tap in to the female section of the market. And it's woke like Star Trek Discovery with its almost exclusively female cast + pretty boys for relational drama. In the end, the movie is just another Red Sparrow type movie (the Sci-Fi versions of this type are way more interesting to me, like Æon Flux and Ghost in the Shell). Bond movie that is meant to appeal to chicks even more than the Bond movies. No sci-fi, no fantasy, no real superhero abilities (that require some expensive CGI and effects, or at least are time-intensive to make).

Shang-Chi and Eternals have too much Chinese or pro-China influence. Big market to tap in as well. Not expecting much from such an Asian-heavy cast and Chinese director (for Eternals, just noticed they had another director for Shang-Chi).

Never truly liked Spider man, but the Marvel version at least has Tony Stark's suit to add some gimmicks to that superhero. Still, I would prefer another Thor movie with the Hulk in it like Ragnarok, or even another Iron Man, Captain Marvel or Dr. Strange over Spider man, their abilities or powers are just more interesting to me. Spider man was fun in Civil War though and the last one had some really nice eye candy in it.

Dr. Strange had lots of magic/fantasy effects in it = (enjoyable) eye candy (to me). Trying to ignore the blatant promotion and conditioning with Eastern Mysticism and the related New Age philosophy that is based on it.

Thor… girl power

Yeah, romance film, also doesn't look like it will have a heavy Sci-Fi element to it. As long as the majority of the movie didn't take place on earth, I would be more OK with it. Then it would have a bigger Sci-Fi element, when it's not on Earth, like the previous movies (except for the first, which is a bit half-half, or perhaps 60:40 in favor of earth; then again, if you use my style of fastforwarding, it's 50:50 again, depending on how much of the earth scenes you skip). Not looking forward to this one, and I doubt even if the majority of the movie didn't take place on earth, there will be much Sci-Fi and fantasy in it because it's already described as a romance film (on wikipedia for example).

Black panther…over hyped, overrated

Yeah, and the hero itself also doesn't have very interesting abilities or powers. Wakanda's technology is interesting though from a Sci-Fi perspective, so I'm hoping the 2nd movie will be better, but it needs better actors in major roles. Denzel Washington perhaps? Morgan Freeman? James Earl Jones, Eddy Murphy, Laurence Fishburn? (is it too late to swap out the actor for the Black Panther himself? I mean, you got a kick-ass actor/actress for Iron Man, Bruce Banner, Star-Lord, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Fury, Dr. Strange, etc. and Thor and Captain America very much 'look the part', I'm also familiar with all of them from other movies, but the actor that plays Black Panther is a complete unknown to me; nor do I enjoy his acting performance all that much)

I kinda liked Captain Marvel, had some things happening in space with spaceships and other futuristic weaponry and machinery. That's my genre. Hoping for more space and less earth in the next one. Probably won't happen (it's more expensive).

Ant man has a gimmick I like, especially when he grows big, that scene in Civil War is sooo funny. As it is in Ant-man and the Wasp. And my expectations were low going into these movies, they were quite doable.

Guardian 3… has to be better than number two

Agreed, still enjoyed 2 more than most of the Marvel movies on earth though. Sci-Fi is more my genre. And the 2nd time I watched it, it was more enjoyable than the first time. Causing me to end up with the following ranking for Marvel movies (which I already shared in my own thread but to put some of the things I said above into context):

Infinity War
Endgame
Guardians of the Galaxy
Thor: Ragnarok
The Avengers
Thor: Dark World
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Age of Ultron
Thor
Captain Marvel
Civil War
Iron Man
Iron Man 3
Iron Man 2
Doctor Strange
The Incredible Hulk
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Spider-Man: Far From Home
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Captain America: The First Avenger
Ant-Man
Spider-Man Homecoming
Black Panther
Black Widow

Expectations:

Shang-Chi and Eternals on par with Black Panther (hoping Eternals at least will be better).
Spider-Man: No Way Home on par with Captain America: The Winter Soldier (it'll probably slot in below Spider-Man: Far From Home in my ranking list above)
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness perhaps will be better than the Iron Man series, at least that's what I'm hoping for. It has potential for lots of eye candy.
Thor: Love and Thunder, yeah, what can you say, may be even worse than Black Widow, at least that one had some action and easily skippable emotional drama. May end up being the worst one for a while. At least it'll get Black Widow of its last spot in my list cause I was extra harsh on it because I felt that movie never should have been made (and if you do Black Widow, then why not Hawkeye? I'll tell you why... if I hadn't already more or less done so in this comment).
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is probably going to be better than the last one. How much? No idea. Depends on the earlier mentioned factors (casting primarily).
The Marvels, if not too much on earth, above Captain Marvel.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, hmmm, does that mean no growing big? Than probably around the first Ant-Man.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, this one will have to save the franchise for me, putting all my hopes in it to outdo the first one, which will put it 3rd in my list. Have to wait almost 2 more years for it, while struggling my way through the other ones (at least my expectations of those will be low, hopefully making them more bearable, managed my way through Black Widow that way, not my type of movie).

I agree!

The eternals looked poo, the others I've never heard of.

I watched the 4hr Snyder cut of justice league last night, I must say it was way better than I thought it would be. Batman needs to say f**k more often lol

Yeah not interested in the new stuff. I too just wanna see spidey, cap, iron man, hulk, Thor etc.

Love superhero movies based of comics. More of a DC fan but have collected everything (live action) I can get my hands on from the original Captain America movie serial from the 40s to Howard the Duck straight on to present day where marvel and disney are happily cranking these out like happy meals. Most of the mash ups like the 3rd Avengers pic are gorgeous to look at and fun but is any of it great film making? Chuck 20 actors into one of these things and you've got about 3 minutes of screentime for each to shine even if it's been bloated to 2 1/2 hours. The merchandising and cross promotions are distracting. Just cuz I like Spiderman doesn't mean I want to watch Iron Man too. Disney/marvel kinda insist you must. Of the new pics due The Eternals is something I'll def add to the collection. It looks terrible. Not at all like the charactors the late great Jack Kirby created after DC cancelled the similar New Gods. It was Kirby's last good comic before he began cranking out flops like Devil Dinosaur. Today we have a magic unicorn flavored version of The Eternal I dread seeing especially after taking a look at the Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur cartoon.

I'm still waiting for a good X-men movie series, that stick to canon. There is so much potential there. Get young stars that can ride out a good long series.

My 15 year old son keeps driving me insane with his lengthy explanations of timelines and what not..

Took him the best of my Wednesday night to explain Loki and him fixing some timeline although I wasn't interested.

I liked Deadpool I and II. I hear there is a third one coming out soon, I'll watch that.

I was not interested in the Eternals until I saw the last trailer. If anything it will lay some groundwork for future movies. On that note, please can we have Galactus and the Silver Surfer?

I am really looking forward to seeing Spider Man. Also, from what I've heard Dr. Strange will be the first 'horror' movie in the MCU.

Recall reading the 1st master of kung fu title marvel did and wasn't a huge fan. Didn't hate it but I wasn't all that psyched to rush out to see shang chi either. Was surprised to see jackie chan very active on twitter in what appears to be a cross promotion between disney, marvel and the iconic actor. Got a ton of marvel pics and a ton of chan pics on the shelf but chan's become a spokesman for communist china over the last decade. Wish I'd known before buying rush hour 3. The sight of chan pretending to be all yankee doodle dandy hits different today. That good an actor he's not. Def not seeing shang chi.

Always been a BIG Marvel fan since I was a kid back in the early 70's.
Me and my brother literally had hundreds of comics between us - and therein lies a story for another day perhaps.

Loved the movies.
Of course some were better than others, one or two were terrible some were in my opinion great.

Over the last few years there's been a sense of growing wokism about Marvel films and that's sort of spoiled my viewing of them.
And I fear its going to get worse.....far worse.

Saying that, I personally enjoyed Captain Marvel.

I'll take them as I find them.

Now that the premise has been made and laid down in several movies including the original, I'm rather looking forward to the Dr. Strange 2.

I was not disappointed in it's first portrayal as even the Comic Book got criticism with the 70" "Far-Out" colored visuals. I also know that every movie has to spend the time to set the historical scene as to how he/she came to be (whomever whatever that is). But I think Dr. Strange has an challenging appeal because of his IQ and ego and that he is still just a man.

For example in Thanos the whole concept that there was only one way out of the countless mathematical scenarios, there was one that had the greatest possibility of working. Where a lot of folks probably didn't quite catch is that in all of them there would still be great causalities and in the end, he (Dr. Strange) would still die. That was also been seen in every one of his equations he'd factored in, think about that every scenario.. he still dies.

That to me is some pretty heavy stuff that the standard public isn't even considering. I say it like that because in real life, he's an egotistical Arse-wholian.

That's really the only one I'm sort of looking forward to.... But then... I've been what seems like an eternity waiting for the new James Bond 007 Movie.

By far my two favourite Marvel characters when I was massively into the comics growing up were Silver Surfer and Vision.
I'm not quite sure what that reveals about me as a person?



I am really looking forward to seeing Spider Man.


The latest Spider Man is really good.



Also, from what I've heard Dr. Strange will be the first 'horror' movie in the MCU.


I never really like Dr Strange.
I wasn't sure what it was back then but now I think it was because he was so arrogant and aloof.

But I have to say I warmed to Benedict Cumberbatch's portrayal of him - not a big fan of the actor, but he is good.

Not a big horror movie fan but I see how there could be a fit.
