Marvel Cinematic Universe Movie Thread

Ever since the release of Iron Man these movies have far exceeded all expectations I have had. What are peoples thoughts on the recent Phase III announcement?? I am pretty excited for the TWO PART Infinity War movie. No way could one movie do that awesome story justice. Also love the casting for Black Panther and (hopefully) Dr. Strange!

Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016

Doctor Strange - November 4, 2016
Benedict Cumberbatch was not specifically confirmed at the Marvel event today, as that deal may not be finished yet. But he's reported in talks for the role.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - May 5, 2017
Guardians of the Galaxy 2's release date has been moved up from July 2017 to May of 2017.

Thor: Ragnarok - July 28, 2017
Thor Ragnarok has taken over the previously set GATG 2 date of July 28, and we also now know that Loki will be back!

Black Panther - November 3, 2017
Black Panther is lined up for November of 2017, and Chadwick Boseman is confirmed to star.

Captain Marvel - July 6, 2018
Marvel will release Captain Marvel in July of 2018, and it looks like Carol Danvers is the Captain Marvel we're getting. Here are our suggestions of who should play her.

Avengers: Infinity War Parts I and II - May 2018 and 2019
Avengers: Infinity War Part I will release May 4, 2018. Avengers: Infinity War Part II will arrive in theaters May 3, 2019.

Inhumans - November, 2, 2018
Inhumans now sits at the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's plans for Phase Three, and will be in theaters on November 2, 2018. Like the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Defenders, this is yet another team of powerful individuals coming to the big screen, and this one splices in all kinds of interesting alien mythology and puts on display some incredibly cool abilities.

    Marvel just KILLED DC with that announcement!!

    Always loved comics but never read anything but i became a Marvel fan because of the MCU and to me this is just an awesome announcement.

    When all is set and done Marvel will have done one amazing work with all the stories , its like a tv show but on the big screen.

    Everything is connected and thats what amazing to me :)

    Really looking forward to all of it, and excited for Dr Strange and Black Panther. Think Cumberbatch and Boseman are perfect for the roles. Marvel basically just told me what I'll be going to the movies for over the next 5 years

    I knew they were doing Civil War but I kind of expected it to be Avengers (don't ask me why).
    Makes sense now why Iron Man is in Cap 3. Also am I wrong in thinking Cap 2 and 3 are released in between Thor 2 and 3?

    I am loving the Marvel movies though, keep em coming.

    Dolph is the true Punisher and rules all the fools that I pity.

    Come on god, answer me. for years I'm asking why, why are the innocent dead and the guilty alive? Where is justice? Where is punishment? Or have you already answered, have you already said to the world here is justice, here is punishment, here, in me.

    I am equally excited for the Netflix series. Wish they would announce a premiere date for Daredevil.

    I really hope this thread isn't going get turned into a bunch of people yelling at each other the way these conversations seem to do in real life.

    I really like these Marvel movies. I have been a Joss Whedon fan since Buffy so I was happy with the way he did the Avengers movie. I also really liked Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Are we going to include the TV stuff in here? Cuz I actually like Agents of Shield, I know most comic book nerds don't. They were supposed to show Agent Carter already too I dunno what ABC's problem is. But I bring it up cuz it'll be interesting to see how thats gonna work with the new Captain America movie which includes Tony Stark.

    Go for it! Especially with SHIELD and Agent Carter interconnected with the movies and potentially Daredevil as well.

    Also read today that L.L Cool J might be joining the universe. Maybe Luke Cage??

    My mind is still blown from that announcement, it almost takes away the insane amount of excitement I had the other day when I saw the Ultron trailer.

    Does anybody know if Joss is supposed to the the infinity war movies? My mind is telling me that he won't but I'm really hoping that he will.

    I also love Agents of Shield, I think most of it's haters are people who watched only the first few episodes. It got slightly better after the mid season break and WAY better after Cap 2 came out. Season 2 has been nothing but awesome so far!

    Allegedly, if not Joss, the Russo brothers may do it after Cap 3.

    Yeah I thought I heard something about that too, I think they did an amazing job with Winter Soldier (possibly my favorite MCU movie) but the MCU will be at such a fragile state at that point that making a change could be risky. Isn't that what happened with the X-Men movies? Singer left after the first 2 and the 3rd one sucked right?
  • jervin007jervin007 Posts: 3,112
    Its crazy that they have all the Marvel movies mapped out until 2019. I am hoping Joss sticks around, but only time will tell. If he's not directing hopefully he stays onboard as a consultant. Just please don't start making shitty movies like Peter Jackson, the hobbit movies are terrible compared to LOTR.

    I would have to say that my favorite Marvel movies at this point are Captain America 2: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and the first Iron Man

    As crazy as that is, Kevin said last year that he has a pretty good outline of the MCU all the way up to 2028 :-O

    X-men - pretty much. Although he came back for Days of Future Past and it was really good.
    The Wolverine was also exceptional, I thought (especially as a comics guy) and First Class was pretty good as well. They're doing a good job alongside MCU, hopefully they keep it up.

    I hope Joss stays to finish this run of Avenger movies. The X-men deal is a little different. Not sure what happened with Singer and FOX, but FOX brought Ratner in and he struck out on the third movie. Don't think he was bought in or even was a fan. Thankfully Fox realized their error and got Singer back on board. He basically had to do DOFP to reset all the things they screwed up. But Marvel has everyone set across the board with the shared universe, Movie, TV, and Netflix. Even rumors that Sony has got smart and wants to get spiderman in on it.

    I've never been a big X-Men fan as far as comics or movies go but I also thought First Class was great, by far my favorite X-Men movie. And yeah after DOFP they will be fine on their own, but Spider-Man on the other hand............cmon Sony it's time to give it up, maybe if the Sinister Six tanks badly we'll see Spidey in the Infinity Wars!

    Yeah I guess the Russo brothers would be a totally different story being that they have a good track record with Cap and what not.

    Wolverine, Cap, X-men were my three go-to comic series' growing up. I thought the Wolverine did a fantastic job from a comics perspective. The DOFP storyline has been retold through various media a little differently each time, but I loved the movie.

    Yeah as a die hard Spidey fan I'm kind of jealous of X-men/Wolverine fans, I really like Garfield as Peter but there's just something not right about the new movies.

    I hope Spidey ends up back with Marvel somehow. I sort of recall reading how Sony is a pain from both Sam Raimi and Garfield. Like Raimi's third Spidey film was just supposed to be the Sandman and Sony basically forced him to use Venom, and that is a reason why he left the franchise. I think I read the same thing later where Garfiled mentioned the original Spiderman 2 script was so good before Sony started messing with it.

    Yeah that was definitely the problem with Spiderman 3 and ASM2, way to much shoving stuff where it doesn't belong. In Spider-Man 3 it was forcing a fan favorite character into the script and ASM2 was way to much world building.

    I keep holding out hope that they will make some rated R Marvel movies. Wolverine is #1 on that list for me. I wish his solo movies were darker. I did hear Deadpool could be rated R though!

    The Wolverine was definitely the closest. A superhero slaughter in DOFP wasn't bad either ;)

    That was a huge problem with Origins: Wolverine. Why oh why did they stuff it full of characters, especially ones who shouldn't have been there....sigh.

    So Agents of Shield seems to be well loved in this thread. The commercials didn't sell me on it, but you folks recommend it, obviously?
