They were. One frequent argument was "Loki's illusions flicker, therefore they're holograms." As if there aren't enough smoke or sparkle effects to fit such a narrow idea of what magic should look like. I suppose they just wanted a more "traditional fantasy" approach to Asgard, but I like the Jack Kirby-esque, space opera look.

Even Asgard having heavy artillery like the AA guns seen in The Dark World isn't anything new.

There’s at least a slight element of racism to their hatred, or else they wouldn’t be getting up in arms about it. Think about it: Why must Mary Jane be white aside from her history as a white character? What does MJ’s whiteness contribute to a romance/love story that can work just the same with a non-white MJ? There is literally no reason other than “she’s always been white!” to prevent MJ from being portrayed by a non-white actor in film/TV.

Surprisingly, people consider how a character looks to actually be important when they've existed in visual mediums.

This is why I brought up the Scarlet Johansson/Ghost in the Shell movie. I didn't like that, I don't like this. To me that's a fairly consistent position to take. Raceswapping characters is not a good idea and just drums up needless controversy and scrutiny.

I'm mostly indifferent to raceswapping MJ since Zendaya's known for actually being an idol singer in real life so she's not a bad fit for MJ who's supposed to be a model. They're casting really young people so so it's a good enough way of showing her chops. But not giving her red hair would be ridiculous, because I'm on the traditionalist side in thinking appearance matters at least a little. I'd be pissed too if they made Supes a redhead or didn't give Tony Stark some sort of beard.

So no I don't hate black MJ like the real racists do but I am not going to be happy either until I can be sure they have that hair part locked down and I'm sure other people feel the same way. But some circles are convinced it's just lying to hide my inner Stormfront because they're so used to going all out they forgot being somewhere in the middle is a thing that exists.

We also don't even know for sure if she's actually going to be MJ or not since it's an unproven rumor coming from a guy who's famous for being untrustworthy so people might just be jumping the gun. If it turns out MJ isn't even in the movie or is played by a white girl after all I don't want it to be more ammo for the anti-SJWs to crow about their "victory" over the SJWs, or for the crazies accusing Marvel of whatever the race version of "queerbaiting" is over it like they did with the also fake rumors about "white Ganke".

Why? Like, if you're the guy that said being a redhead is MJ's one character trait, then what about the existing character do you find worth preserving, exactly? What if she's not a redhead but instead is given actual depth and texture unlike literally every other version of that character?

That guy is not me, but like I said I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to character appearances so I do care that they try to retain at least some aspects of the original character design if it's something that's been a key part of them throughout the years.

Also hair dye is a thing and many black women use it in real life. There's no good excuse for them not to give MJ red hair other than to be needlessly rebellious. Fyi I don't consider the race thing an example of that, like I said I already don't care about that or Valkyrie being a black woman either (also Valkyrie's design isn't iconic in the way Thor or MJ's are so it's fine if she's not a blonde with a long braid as long as she's got some sort of Asgardian armor on).

For what it's worth I'm also extremely annoyed they didn't bother to give DCEU Superman his spit curl or homage Zemo's costume or any part of his backstory in CW at all even though they had plenty of chances to.

Seriously, I’m for the raceswitch and hope Zendaya does well in the role and all that, but if you’re gonna keep anything about MJ aside from the name and the relationship with Peter, you’re gonna keep the red hair.

Why should he have to? I’m someone who is for the raceswitching, and I still think MJ should have her red hair because it’s what I’d call her “visual aesthetic”. I’d be arguing for Black Cat to have silver hair if Marvel decided to raceswitch Felicia Hardy because it’s a key part of the character’s visual aesthetic. On the flipside, I’d be asking Marvel to keep the black and red Spider-Man suit if they ever decided to make a Miles Morales-based Spider-Man movie because that suit is Miles’s visual aesthetic. You can tweak the aesthetic, yes—just look at Iron Man—but completely abandoning it makes no sense, regardless of factors like raceswitching.

If you think MJ doesn’t need the red hair, you can provide an argument and a justification for said argument that is more than “Says who?” or “Why not?”. Give me a solid, reasoned argument as to why a black MJ doesn’t need red hair, and I’ll listen. I may end up disagreeing with your argument, but I will listen to you.

It isn't irrelevant. The redhaired imagery has alway been tied with a person with aggressive disposition, fiery temperament, and sharp tongue, all trairs MJ possesses. Again, look at her first appareance posted up there, from a quick glance the visuals are meant to convey that she means business, and the hair color is part of it.

Also, you have failed to give a reason as to why change it, what's there to gain. Like previously mentioned your "why not" argument is very poor, because hey, why not give Peter a green and purple mohawk while we are at it?

You keep telling yourself that. Point is, you have’t provided any real reason that MJ’s hair color must change if Zendaya actually is playing Mary Jane. (I said I’d listen to you, even if I disagreed with you. And I disagreed.) “Going against the inertia of the franchise” does nothing to convince me that taking away MJ’s red hair is a good decision, regardless of who plays the role. That reasoning would justify any change to the mythos or the visual aesthetic of any given character—as >46999 suggested, giving Peter a mohawk—without actually getting into what makes that change necessary (or a good idea).

I'm not arguing about what makes the visual change "necessary." That's the logic the dog whistlers you are defending use. I'm arguing that it's irrelevant, because it is. The performance and script, that's what matters, visual elements need only be pleasing and avoid being incongruous. If she can play the role, then give it to her. Arguing that the movie is ruined if she doesn't match this arbitrary visual stereotype is insanity.

I actually like the pacing of some of these Marvel Netflix series. They do have more of a "Long Movie" vibe than a series with an over arching story at times, but I'm feeling this one's got a nice Beginning Middle and End to every episode.

You get the bingewatch itch you usually have in the former, and you can consume it bite size like with more episodic stuff.

There's nothing so far on the level of Daredevil Season 1 I think. But Mike Colter really carries this nicely!

It's an origin story formula that worked; of course Marvel is going to mine that shit for all it’s worth.

That isn’t a good thing, though. People will eventually notice the similarities and stop giving a shit about origin story movies. Blade worked as an ostensible “origin film” because the entire “world” existed and Blade was already doing his thing before we got into the story proper; Marvel could take a lesson from that.

>We already knew that the reason for Tim Miller leaving Deadpool was due to creative differences with Ryan Reynolds. Word on the street was Miller wanted to create a bigger budget, more stylized sequel while Reynolds wanted to keep it smaller and let the raunchy humor and unique storytelling style do the heavy lifting. It sounds like Junkie XL has decided that he trusts Miller more than Reynolds, and honestly, it’s hard to disagree with him.

It did as that kept fox from having an excuse to messing with the pot. And going from Miller talk around the time of the films release he thought so too. Guess he was seduced by the bigger budgets that Fox started promising.

Because making it a 200 Million dollar Blockbuster (Number I've heard tossed about) No way would it be Rated R or have the same humor that it did because Executives would then be calling the shots.

Which from the rumored split on Cable with Miller strangely wanting somebody the Studio would try to push instead of someone that looks like Cable. He's a lost cause as its good he walked.

/co/ being their usual contrarian troll selves and a bunch Shitting on Ryan saying its his ego getting in the way.

Man I'm really getting tired of RLM's pandering to anti-SJW types. Like, I don't care that they disagree with this stuff in private, because I know Tumblr types truly are insufferable. But it seems like with the Ghostbusters film they go more and more out of their way to piss on the fact that people care about race and gender stuff in the media in the first place. For what it's worth I agree that the Ancient One controversy was kind of a damned if you do damned if you don't situation but they didn't even try to give it a fair perspective. But for a bunch of guys who get annoyed by people pushing political agendas on the media they sure like to do it themselves.

They were 100% right on point about the Tilda Swanson controversy, though. Same goes with the ridiculous Matt Damon controversy, which only requires a tiny bit of digging on who is making the film to realize that it is like a 80% Chinese production.

Also, the whole "you hate Ghostbusters = you hate women" thing. If I truly hated women, I would want MORE terrible female-driven films like Ghostbusters that crash and burn at the box office, which only makes it harder for potentially good films featuring a largerly female cast to be made.

The problem with the Tilda Swinton casting wasn't just that she was replacing an Asian role, though it's not great either because roles for Asians even as tokens aren't very common. It's that she's dolled up like an Asian and doing all the stereotypical things that make the Asian master cliche racist in the first place. She's basically doing a more heroic Asian version of the Ali G thing. That's what most of the complaints are about.

Not really. “The Lego Batman Movie” and “Logan” sat well outside of the DCEU and the MCU, and aside from licensing approval (and maybe a little creative input here and there), neither film was as heavily “controlled” as a DCEU or an MCU film. Their quality comes from filmmakers having a vision and executing it without worrying about larger concerns such as “worldbuilding” or “merchandising”, not just from the licenses or who owns them. “Iron Fist” turning out to be hot garbage on nearly every level is also not a sign of change. No one gets it right all the time; even Marvel was bound to have its first major failure sooner or later.

Not to say that franchise fatigue is not a thing. Superhero films have dominated the film landscape (at least in terms of marketing and visibility) over the past decade, and they are not going away any time soon. But a few more contentious-in-quality films such as “Batman v Superman” or shows such as “Iron Fist” might finally make audiences tired of “capeshit” for a while. Marvel’s first major box office bomb will be the surest sign that franchise fatigue has kicked in for wider audiences.

It goes without saying that they’d like to capitalize on that intellectual property.” I see them pushing “Venom” out as an extension of that, and making it an R-rated film builds on (read: tries to ape) the successes of “Logan” and “Deadpool” while also cementing a different direction than the MCU.

(Quick aside: Sony has the film rights to nine hundred Marvel characters? Jesus, Marvel. You really fucked yourselves on those movie deals back in the 2000s.)

Eh I guess that's gonna be their place for the Young Teen Marvel shows. Okay I guess. Shannon Purser (Barbara from Stranger Things and now Ethel on the Archie series) Wanted to be considered for the role so I hope she has a chance to try out.

Pick her over Anna Kendrick please.

DC should do something similar. A Teen Titans show that goes midway between between the action of the old show and the slapstick zany of TTG could be a good fit. But can't because they've no longer got access to one of the most important parts.

So I'm slowly catching up on the MCU and I'm currently watching Age of Ultron. So what was the reasoning on the Banner/Natasha relationship? I'm not super opposed to it, but it does feel out of left feild.

And the 'quipy-ness' is ok sometimes, but it is a tad thick in places.

>So what was the reasoning on the Banner/Natasha relationship?

Well, she is both the Hulk's handler and the person charged to keep an eye on Banner (ever since the first film), so I guess they became closer between movies.

I guess they felt since Cap, Thor, Ironaman and Hawkeye had some element of romance in their stories, Natasha too needed it. According to Whedon, he found the idea of the scenes of the Widow calming the Hulk to be romantic and intimate, and things developed from there. I'd rather her to not be in any relationship, but the romance is so light and downright platonic and doesn't really go anywhere serious, I didn't really mind. It's unnecesary, but not the RUINED FOREVER deal that some people exploded with back in the day.

IMO, if they wanted to make it interesting, Natasha should actually have been more interested in the Hulk than in Banner. Now that's a crack shipping that would take everybody by surprise.

As a fan of crack ships, that sounds deliciously absurd. It even had some weight with her line about needing the Hulk to get up to the city. I am happy about the platonic-ness more.

Just finished it. Yeah, the quips were more of a hindrance in my enjoyment, but on the whole Age of Ultron was fine. I didn't love it as much as my first watch of the 1st Avengers, but that was a right time n place for me. I'm not dreading watching Civil War like I use to any more, so that's a plus.

“I think with Frank and with the world that he’s very much involved in, he’s a soldier, so I think there will be very much a military component of the show. It will be somewhat centered on that… I think that [the] Frank Castle that was in Daredevil is not in Punisher.”

That is a really good sign that they get him, apparently Punisher is gonna be sort of a bubble continuity. He'll be The Punisher in crossover stuff like Daredevil, but he'll be THE Punisher when he stands alone.

So Disney is planning on pulling out of their Netflix partnership in 2019 and starting their own Streaming Service.

Puts the future of the Marvel shows in question.

Stupid idea to be honest. Nobody wants a multitude of services. Its why the CBS Direct thing will collapse and why HBO service is pretty much a seasonal affair.

Hell if Amazon service wasn't part of Prime I wouldn't have it regardless how much I like some of their series.

Though for Disney to give up on trying to acquire Netflix says something about Netflix position. Its pretty strong.

So after a long time procrastinating, I got around to watching Civil War. It felt like a hybrid of the first Avengers and Winter Soldier. It's major flaws being Tony's first thought to get more hands on board was to blackmail Sipderman into a mook, that fucking X-Men level 'line up and punch each other' and Zemo. Just, goddamn. It almost surpassed Winter Soldier in my books, but at least I'm properly hyped for BLACK PANTHER. Watching homecoming before wasn't that big of a mistake as I thought it would.

Except no, that is not the case at all. Killmonger had a good idea in “we should do more for those like us in places that are not Wakanda”; where he went wrong was “and we should start by becoming the African equivalent of Great Britain”. That people can sympathize with his view of Wakanda as a “lost son”—as someone who never knew of his homeland, but grew up knowing his homeland would rather hide from the world instead of helping Black people around the world—does not mean he was right to believe violence and colonization were the answer.
