Huh. Well this is an interesting development.
Huh. Well this is an interesting development.
After hearing that they are making a 5th Shrek and a rumor of another 3 Matrix movies…are we in the age where franchises can’t die?
I mean, right now, Sony is promising a Spider-Man movie every year, there’s a planned Jurassic Park 4, Terminator 5 is coming, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, reboots of every other franchise, including Robocop and Total Recall, Transformers is still going, X-Men’s franchise is getting muddy as hell with how much it’s being pushed, they’re trying a Fantastic Four reboot, we’re even going to get Star Wars films and spinoffs on top of all this!!! There’s even another Harry Potter movie coming! Alice in Wonderland is getting a sequel! Finding Nemo is getting a sequel!
WHAT IS GOING ON?!
Why are we in an age where everything is being recycled back?!
Are we so scared of new ideas that we’re just going to keep pushing out sequel after sequel, reboot after reboot?
Don’t get me wrong, I like things like the Marvel Cinematic Universe because it feels like it will keep moving forward and bring new elements to the big screen, like Guardians of the Galaxy.
But why are we getting such a rush of recycling franchises that, in my opinion, should stay concluded?!
So, I was talking to a friend, and we thought of this
Is Marvel using their films to their most potential?
I mean, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, etc are great starting films, but I’ve been thinking about the missed opportunities of Iron Man 3 and Thor 2.
These films will not go on indefinitely, and I would be surprised if we get a IM4, Thor4, or CA4. Which means they have to make the most of what they have.
Iron Man 3 squandered that by not making the universe larger. There were no new supporting characters (Besides the kid, but he seems to have had his storyline tied up) and the changes at the end of the film will most likely be undone with the Avengers. With it being very unlikely that we’ll get an Iron Man 4, what does that mean for characters like Madame Masque or Ghost?
Iron Man 2 you might bash, but at least it brought us Black Widow, War Machine, Justin Hammer, and a few other new elements, which is more than I can say for IM3.
Thor: The Dark World was a huge missed opportunity. Thor has one of the largest franchises in Marvel, and yet we got a really forgettable villain and no new supporting characters (Unless you think Darcey’s intern counts). In a franchise where Enchantress, Valkryie, Balder, Beta Ray Bill, and SO MANY characters exist, why did we get such a forgettable film?
Now, I’m happy that Captain America 2 is bringing Falcon into the fold, and using Batroc, Crossbones, and even introducing Sharon Carter is gonna be great because it’s bringing in the new elements we desperately need! Guardians of the Galaxy will also start its own franchise as well!
The point I’m trying to make is, Marvel should really give each one of their films the most effort and potential. Because I’d hate to be the person who constantly thinks back on what we could have gotten in the films instead of just forgettable filler.
So the rumored Marvel phase 3 films are:
If this is true…I’m disappointed. Where’s the diversity? Where’s the new properties? Strange and Ant-Man, yes, that’s great, but what about Black Panther or the Inhumans? RUNAWAYS?! Just…more of the same? I’m really just disappointed.
"Black Widow always was Hawkeye’s girlfriend"
"Why do you need Mockingbird? She adds nothing to the team. Besides, you got Hawkeye"
"I don’t like Mockingbird because she has big boobs"
*When sites list female Avengers who should make it into the Avengers, Mockingbird never is on the list*
*Mockingbird will probably die soon and probably won’t be back for a long time*
»Hawkeye fans freaking out cause they think that he’ll die in Cap 2.
HEY HAWKEYE FANS! NOW YOU KNOW WHAT I’VE BEEN FEELING LIKE CONSTANTLY WITH MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS!
But, OH WAIT, Hawkeye is in Avengers 2 and isn’t even in Cap 2! Guess you’re getting worked up over nothing!
Sheesh, do your research fans before you panic. Even I do that before I go nuts.
I did a thing!
What I would like to see from Thor 3:
What I would like to see from Captain America 3:
WHERE IS FALCON?!
- Everyone looking at Captain America: Winter Soldier poster.
Okay, so let me get this straight:
Marvel Studios is doing their 2 movies a year system, and the movies coming out are:
2014 - Captain America: Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy.
2015 - Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man
With Phase 3 movies gonna be announced sometime this year. Awesome.
But on top of that, we now have
Agents of SHIELD
And then Netflix shows in 2015 of: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist merging into the Defenders.
On top of that, we are getting hints at Captain America 3 and Thor 3, as well as Dr. Strange, Black Panther and Inhumans
But that’s not all! We got Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man movies which will spinoff into Venom and Sinister Six films!
AND THEN we got FOX’s X-Men and Fantastic Four movies with Days of Future Past somehow tying together the past and future! I’m not even gonna touch the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver fiasco.
And now FOX wants Fantastic Four to crossover with X-Men, an X-Men film centered around Apocalypse, an X-Force Film and then another possible Wolverine Movie!
AND THEN we have DC trying to make Batman vs. Superman, with hints at a Wonder Woman and Justice League films on top of Arrow, Gotham Central, Hourman and Flash shows with a movie that combines all the supernatural DC heroes!
DID YOU GET ALL THAT?!!!!
Because my head is spinning!!!!
Is it just me, or is A.I.M. being used EVERYWHERE lately?
Remember that web article about a year or so ago that went:
Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are gonna be in Avengers 2!
And then was like:
Here’s hoping Justin Beiber is Quicksilver!
Some people just want to watch the world burn….
Hey, I like that Smasher character! She’s seems to be a fresh character who will-
Oh look, she’s already a villain. By the same guys who made Mockingbird go haywire.
Is there seriously a vendetta against EVERY SINGLE THING I FIND INTERESTING IN COMICS?!!!!
