>>47153 I did find it surprising because Mike hated the first ID4 precisely because it was dumb shlock, and Resurgence is even dumber and shlockier and somehow he loved it. I am not saying he sucks for it or anything like that, but it was supremely odd to hear him giving praise to the movie.
Phase Three is the end of an era in Marvel films, in and out of the MCU: the X-Men film franchise will lose the only Logan it’s ever known after Hugh Jackman films the next Wolverine, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans will close out their runs as Iron Man and Captain America with Infinity War—Pt. II, and Infinity War itself will be the climax of a decade-long plan that turned Marvel films into box office juggernauts.
And it all begins with Captain America: Civil War. Here’s the last trailer for the film—complete with the reveal of the MCU’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man: //youtube.com/watch?v=dKrVegVI0Us
DC General Edition 4 (You) http://collider.com/batman-vs-superman-review-early/ Someone who saw the movie early gives his thoughts on BvS. Sounds... not terrible, probably better than Man of Steel though not the critical smash hit WB would like it to be.
>>46422 >So apparently Snyder is going to take cues from Back Kirby' s comics for Justice League. That doesn't really mean anything, as Snyder is still attached, but I could think of worse influences. > I mean this is a guy who managed to botch Watchmen despite making a scene for scene remake of the comic, isn't it?
Or perhaps there will be no relation at all with the rest of the new characters in the main trilogy. I hate when stories develop to a point where EVERYBODY seems to be family or related in some way, the worst kind of contrivance IMO.
Marvel General: (Fantastic) Fifth Edition New info about Doctor Strange and Civil War at D23, X-Men 'verse is still going strong, and Fox still claims to be interested in doing a sequel to Fantastic Flop despite the critical and financial trashing it got.
>>45405 Also she apparently didn't watch Winter Soldier which is almost criminal. I'm surprised so many people continue to think Steve is a Lawful Stupid type after that movie came out. Must have seen him in the Avengers films only.
>Those rival distributors who lowered their Batman v. Superman opening forecasts toward $100M have their suspicions about the Zack Snyder-helmed movie given the MPAA’s news that the home entertainment version of the movie would carry an R-rating. However, according to social media monitor RelishMix, since the R-rated news broke, the conversation for #BatmanvSuperman spiked 60% with 5K combined hashtags across Twitter and Instagram. Ninety-five percent of the chatter is positive about that R-rating.
Now that Star Wars is in the hands of the Family Friendly American Mouse Company™, how long until we get Blu-Ray releases of all the versions of the original trilogy? I mean the original theatrical releases, Special Edition 1997 theatrical release, and the DVD release. I watched the DVD edit first, and for that (and some other) reason(s) I prefer that one over all the others. However, I realize many other people grew up with different edits, and therefore think we collectively deserve ALL versions in 1080p.
I think it is up to us to bug Disney until they give in. What do you think?
Today I've had a dream about a sequel to "Kindred: The Embraced". It had a pretty mediocre name, something with "blood" in it, but the contents seemed decent. Then I woke up and was sad. Before someone mentions it, I know that "Kindred" brutally violated some parts of lore and rules of the setting. But come on, it was the best thing in media since VtMB and some of the actors did their job really well. I'm normally not a big fan of bloodsuckers, whether old-timers following in Stoker's footsteps or modern variations, but oWoD really struck a chord of some kind.
So, anyone up for a "what kind of VtM (or some other WoD) film I would like to see"?
Marvel General 4 Agent Carter got renewed for a second season, hooray. And it's going to take place in Los Angeles this time. Also a funeral scene has been confirmed for Civil War, but chances are it's not the one for Steve Rogers.
Yeah, Daredevil mostly avoided that trap by including the training montage with the origins of Matt’s “blindsight” ability and such that was frontloaded into the film. It doesn’t even show him deciding to become Daredevil or getting the suit or whatever; he’s just already Daredevil once the frontloading ends and the movie’s story begins. That left open the plothole of how he gets all those things he uses as Daredevil, though—and Marvel can’t make a glaring oversight with something that important.
My guess is that Marvel will shoot for a GOTG-style opening where the origin is frontloaded before the opening title sequence, which’ll leave open a way to transition into the opening title sequence and start the movie’s story.
