There will articles twenty years from now saying that RDJ can save the MCU.
There was an article last week that said that Marvel is in such dire straights that it is considering doing just that. Bringing back all of the original Avengers, including Tony Stark and Black Widow, for a new Avengers film.
Never made it through Captain Marvel.I like to remain optimistic and avoid the whole "this film is terrible" parade before it's released.
It strikes me this is just a continuation of the hate aimed at the Captain Marvel film, and that was pretty cool.
I mean, it can't be as bad as Ironman 2.
this might be more accurate for me, as I suspect I will love the Boys new season. i've not started into Gen V. still. i've had no problems binging the americans and the wire at the same time. season 4 on the wire is trying me, though. too much kids stuff for my taste.But I've lost all interest in the MCU. Too many bad series and mediocre films that have nothing to do with the comics.
i liked this one as well, more than most reviews gave it.I liked Moon Knight both the MCU version and the more traditional version.
I'll never lose interest in Super Heroes, just like I'll never lose interest in Fantasy or Sci Fi
I am, however, losing interest with all the Disney Plus MCU stuff and the declining MCU films
They may need to give it a rest for a bit and return invigorated, rather than this continual drain
I love Infinity War. It’s my favorite Marvel movie. I still remember at the end credits where I was looking around the theater at the shocked and somber crowd and I had a smile on my face. I knew the heroes would come back and beat Thanos but I loved seeing them pushed to the nearly catastrophic edge.
I want to be there with you, I do. It's just that I want them to be better than they are, I mean Iron Man, Avengers, Captain America I and II, all amazing. Then I look at the Spider-Verse (which I recently rewatched the 2nd movie) and think "They can do better if they really try." Captain Marvel didn't sell me on the character, and I liked Carol before she was Captain Marvel, but oof, the big problem is they need to give her good villains and she hasn't had that (I love Ms. Marvel as a comic character, but she needs better villains than the parrot-headed guy.)I love superheroes. I've loved superhero comics all my life, I taught myself to read with comics; I've loved superhero cartoons and videogames almost as long. I love the fact that, in the Twenties and in my forties, superhero movies and especially superhero television shows are things that I can love.
My only real regret with the MCU is it being the MCU, the same as my biggest complaint about Star Wars, that there's no real competition for it and only one studio even trying. The best part of Shang Chi was... everything about Shang Chi, but the worst part of it is that nobody else is going to try to juxtapose a modern Earth setting with that kind of over-the-top xianxia vibe until the kids who saw it as kids grow up to produce and direct movies.
The MCU is still my second favorite superhero film franchise.
And... man, as much as I hated Captain Marvel-- my least favorite MCU movie, and second-least favorite MCU production period-- as much as I hated the first movie, I'm really excited for the sequel. I love Ms. Marvel
and the trailers make it look like it's going to be a whole lot of fun. Carol wasn't really what was wrong with the first movie, Brie Larson wasn't what was wrong with the first movie, and it doesn't look like they're going to make the same mistakes this time.
Different mistakes, maybe, but different is good.
I think you and I are the only ones that liked She-Hulk. For an adaptation of the source material it was great (and I’m a big fan of Maslany)I want to be there with you, I do. It's just that I want them to be better than they are, I mean Iron Man, Avengers, Captain America I and II, all amazing. Then I look at the Spider-Verse (which I recently rewatched the 2nd movie) and think "They can do better if they really try." Captain Marvel didn't sell me on the character, and I liked Carol before she was Captain Marvel, but oof, the big problem is they need to give her good villains and she hasn't had that (I love Ms. Marvel as a comic character, but she needs better villains than the parrot-headed guy.)
They can do amazing things, and they're currently not, which has disappointed me. I'm hoping Marvels will be great for everyone. (Especially since Ms. Marvel is in it) but I don't get to see these things in theaters so.
Of course I liked She-Hulk (did need a better ending)
