Things that made Thor one of the weaker Marvel Movie Franchises:

  1. Asgard = Aliens.  What was wrong with them being Gods?  Guardians of the Galaxy is exploring the Cosmic side of Marvel, so why are we suddenly told that Asgard = Space aliens?  It just removes mysticism behind them and removes subjects like Valhalla or Hel in future films.  Even if can get past this, you got the whole problem of-
  2. Asgard are technologically savvy.  This one bugged me in Thor 2.  This REALLY bugged me.  Why are there suddenly Anti-Aircraft guns and spaceships flying around Asgard?  If they got that tech, then why the fuck do they still wield swords when a ship full of elves mow them down with their guns?  On that note, are Loki’s illusions just “Nanomachines” in his blood that allows him to manipulate air molecules?  Seriously, it just gets stupid.  And don’t point to the Sif on Agents of SHIELD going “LOL, Human tech outdated!” that removes the charm of Asgardians not being used to midgard tech!  One of the more charming things about Thor books is their fascination with human technology!  It’s really moronic. 
  3. Not using the Expansive Thor cast.  Thor’s cast is big.  REALLY big.  Valkyrie, Balder, Enchantress, Hela, Scourge and many more are just some of the names associated with Thor.  So why are we wasting times with Captain Underpants and the Interns Intern when we could have high fantasy going on?!

Honestly, the Thor movies feel like Fantasy movies that are too embarrassed to be about fantasy, so instead they use lame pseudo science to explain away everything, and instead we are left with a very mundane franchise that should feel epic.

Seriously, I’m disappointed in the Thor films.

There are two types of comic writers.

Creators, who build up worlds and create lots of characters and relationships.

and

Destroyers, who take the established characters and either kill off most of the cast or destroy most things associated with the book.  Usually leave a book when they just run out of things to do.

It’s just really strange how I’ve been observing this trend.  You got Academy X New X-Men followed by Craig and Yost’s New X-Men, which killed almost the entire cast and blew up the coffee shop and then left the book open ended cause hey, at least they got X-23 popular.  Or Bendis who started his Avengers run by blowing up the mansion and killing most the Avengers, but he puts Spider-Man and Wolverine on the team, so it’s okay.  Or Dennis Hopeless with Avengers Arena (Granted he was told by editorial to do this).

Is it just me, or is the biggest way to get popular as a writer to just kill off what the guy before you has created?

Oh Hi Iron Lad.

Oh Hi Iron Lad.

In the Thor movies, we still don’t have Valkyrie or Enchantress, two big female presence in the Thor franchise.

In the Guardians of the Galaxy film, we are getting Gamora, a character similar to Black Widow as a red in the ledger assasin, but we aren’t getting Mantis, Phyla-Vell or Moondragon, the latter two are lesbians.

In Ant-Man, it’s appears that we won’t be getting Janet Van Dyne or Cassie Lang, the latter who is the SOLE REASON Scott Lang took up the role of being a hero.

Captain America movies gave us Sharon Carter, but her role is pretty limited to far.

I’m really wondering, is there a reason why these films are so damn scared of the female heroes they have the potential to make greater?!  So far, we only have Sif, Black Widow and Gamora as the female heroes of the Marvel U!  Why the hell isn’t Marvel taking more chances?

Also, Falcon and War Machine seem to be ignored for the Avengers 2 promotions…yipee…

(In all fairness though, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Agent Carter show and Mockingbird on AoS is a good step forward.)

What I was hopeful for Ant-Man before the Hall H Panel:

What I got from the Hall H Panel:

You know what? Fuck you Marvel Studios!

You mean to tell me you can get Rocket Raccoon and Groot in a film, can do the Winter Soldier, but now when you’re doing Ant-Man, you exclude both Janet AND Cassie?!  WHAT THE FLYING FUCK?!

You took away the thing that made Scott Lang a character!  His daughter!  Cassie was a huge part of Scott’s character and you removed that for another shitty “Every guy” story!  

You took away Janet Van Dyne!  Oh, wait, I’m sorry, we got HOPE PYM/VAN DYNE NOW!

So you’re telling me that we can get shit like Guardians of the Galaxy with Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and even Cosmo, but you can’t even put one of the two lesbian characters in the film?!  You can have Captain America with the Winter Soldier and Robot Zola, but you can’t even put Sharon Carter as a lasting character in it?!

OH WE CAN GET A LITTLE KID TO TAKE UP A CHUNK OF TIME IN IRON MAN 3, BUT CASSIE LANG WOULD BE TOO MUCH OF A STRETCH?!

GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!

GO FUCK YOURSELF WITH A CACTUS!!!!

I’m tired of this shit.  I’m tired of looking forward to something, and the part I’m looking forward to is yanked out!  

Just, GO FUCK YOURSELF MARVEL STUDIOS!

Marvel Studios panel in 40 mins and I’m gonna be out!

Most likely sneaking peeks at my phone all night!

So…this is a thing…
