    The Marvel Thread - Multiverses and other Shenanigans

    From Random TV/Movie News -

    He also says that there'll be no Hank Pym in it (say what?) but there'll be more Hawkeye (YAY!).

    So: Vin Diesel as Vision? I can see that happening.

    ps: we need a comic book movie adaptation thread, darn it. Someone start one!
    Ta-da! Hope you don't mind a Marvel thread. We can bring DC in here, too, but I figure those two universes could at least get their own threads if desired. Or does anyone else think it should just be a comic book adaptation thread? I can always just change the title to whatever everyone else thinks.

    A think a separate thread for DC and Marvel will suffice. I mean, it's not like people are clamoring to discuss R.I.P.D., for example.

    Huh. Ryan Reynolds should concentrate on getting the Deadpool movie done. I think he was the only decent thing from the mess that was Origins (aside from Jackman who can do no wrong and Liev Schreiber who was totally creepy).

    Giving X-Men: First Class another shot. Still a cinematic abortion, sorry. Hokey as fuck.

    In other Marvel news, I saw this on a bus stop yesterday and thought "Best fucking movie poster of all time":

    All of the Wolverine posters look sick as fuck! Not too sure if I wanna see the movie, though. I haven't heard anything about it. Most people are turned off simply because of how Origins turned out.

    As long as he gets to go full-BlendTec and make himself some ninja juice, I'm a happy camper.

    In the comics, Ultron is a big bad robot hellbent on destroying humanity, but Joss tells Marvel LIVE that he'll be changing the villain's origins for the movie -- saying "We were crafting our own version of it where [Ultron's] own origin comes more directly from the Avengers we already know about."
    Bolding mine, because I'm gonna take a stab in the dark and predict that J.A.R.V.I.S.is gonna go haywire and robo-jack one of Tony's suits, or secretly build his own. HEARD IT HERE FIRST, PEOPLE.

    Nice prediction, Fixer. I like that.

    Was I the only one thinking that the Destroyer technology from Thor would play a part in Ultron's creation?

    Maybe a combination of both our theories...? Yours sounds quite plausible as well!

    J.A.R.V.I.S. and The Destroyer sitting in a tree k.i.s.s.i.n.g. Moments later, baby Ultron is born. Tony Stark is one pissed off grandpa.

    Oh yeah, I'd watch this.

    Since I couldn't find a thread for The Wolverine, I'll just say it here.

    (Wolverine Spoilers)
    Spoiler: The mid-credits scene at the end got me so fucking pumped for Days of Future Past. It would've been even more mindblowing if James McAvoy and/or Michael Fassbender was there too. Maybe to help audiences realize that the two series are connected.

    That was easily the best part of the movie for me. I'm pumped!

    I thought the Wolverine was pretty good. For what it was. The constant bombardment of Japanese cliches and stereotyping almost killed the rest of the movie, but the pacing and the action made it work. I'm shocked that all those cliches were able to make it past the filter that is the process to release.

    Sometimes it was pretty dumb too. lots of things happened for no reason.

    Spoiler: like how Logan leaves Mariko at the end, saying that he has more important things to do, and then promptly doesn't know where he's going. Or the entire character of her childhood boyfriend. or the Snake lady.

    also, in the stinger, Why would they confront Logan in the airport of all places? and why have magneto be the first to talk to him, instead of professor X, or Bishop (who you can see).


    The movie was at it's best when it was being minimal, or during the action scenes.... paradoxically.

    ^ Yeah, agreed. I actually loved the small character moments, especially with Mariko and Yukio. There were some really long stretches of non-action/intimacy which was really nice even if it made the pacing a bit weird. Most of the action was great, but Silver Samurai and Viper were too cartoonish for me... even for a movie that features a (pretty badass) fight on top of a bullet train. Their presence wasn't so bad in itself, but their presentation was too much.

    So I have mixed feelings, but there was definitely some stuff I really enjoyed. My friend did not like it. Maybe I wouldn't have either if X-Men Origins didn't come before it...
