After three days the top three goes to the final. f*** anyone saying something else. Go f*** yourself before posting that you disagree with this system. f*** outta here.

Other than that, woo! :aww:

Didn't include characters that only have a tiny, tiny, ass part. Such as Greer and Munn. Deal with it.

And they are obviously in the order of the poll. Number one is top left, number two is second from the left in the top row and so on. You all f***ing understand it.

That was a question in last week's pub quiz!

Apparently Fantastic Four is getting a reboot too. Strange they'd reboot the franchises only a few years after the last movies were released. Just comes across as desperation to keep milking the cash cow.

The Avengers is very interesting, as it's Joss Whedon who writes/directs it, and it ties up closely with both the Iron Man, Thor and the Captain America film franchises.

Buffy, Angel, Toy Story (Second writer), Titan A.E., Firefly, Serenity and Dr. Horrible = Gold.

Dollhouse and Alien: Resurrection = Utter tosh.


7 good vs. 2 bad. Don't really see where he's overrated myself, tbh. The Cabin in the Woods looks very strong as well.

Back on track:

Hopefully Deadpool (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1431045/ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1431045/)) is decent and breaks the '4th wall' in the movie. Though Ryan Reynolds is another two characters in the comic universe actor!

Ryan Reynolds should have just played The Flash and called it a day. I do like him from back in the Two Guys and a Girl days, and with The Flash being my favoured hero I reckon he would have been perfect for Wally West, in that cheeky charming way.

Also on a related note -
Eric from True Blood should have been cast as Thor.

The fact you've just over-rated him!

Angel was really hit and miss, Titan AE  was toss, Firefly was so good it lasted a whole season! Even Buffy died on its arse after 4 seasons in terms of enjoyment.

Firefly was a fantastic show.

And like a number of Whedon's shows had a great ensemble cast, which is one of the reasons I think he is a good choice for The Avengers.

So many movies with a large number of characters, end up sidelining half of them. I'm hopeful that Whedon will be able to produce a movie that let's all of the characters shine.

And you mean "people who know's good TV's darling Joss Whedon". Easy mistake to make.  O0

Have you seen Dr. Horrible? It's pop culture at it's finest. Regardless, of course shows from many years ago feels dated now as pop culture always changes. He flopped with Dollhouse, sure. But all the other criticism is just based on nothing given just how big and critically acclaimed his other shows have been. He's only really done Dr. Horrible and Dollhouse since Serenity (2005), so I don't see where any criticism should come from even though, as I said, Dollhouse bombed. It's not just Internet people who like him, he was around before Internet became "big" you know. It just all screams of an easy excuse to critique someone you're not too fond of for whatever reason (most likely personal taste) and just saying it's just Internet nerds that like him, which is quite far from the truth.

In fact, a lot of his scripts are being used as the template of how to write a good script when you attend a screenwriter's course. Any critique against him for anything else than Dollhouse and Alien: Ressurection will always be down to personal taste differing from Whedon's style as even if you aren't fond of his shows it's still the first place to go if you want to know how a well written show is done.

Personal taste = Fair enough.
Trying to make a point saying a man that's only really done two things since 2005 (one an award winning web-series) is dated and only Internet geeks like him. =  :dowie: Of course shows that are six years and older will be dated today.

Dollhouse was terrible.
Firefly didn't feel fresh at all. Can't understand people's love for it. A Western in Space, I get it, but the characters and the plot were just.. average (at best). As for the 'he was around before the internet was big' comment. He was around for the vocal internet's youth, they grow up on Buffy, and now champion him on the internet 10 years on.

Its not so much the content of the pop culture reference he used that dates the show, its the fact that he always goes for it. I associate it with the MTV 90s cheap TV. I need a joke, OK, I know, random pop culture quip, everyone loves them and they're easy to write!


Dr. Horrible is the web series, not Dollhouse.

Now to translate the opening bit of your post:
Firefly didn't feel fresh at all to me. I can't understand why people like other things than me.
Your comment about the Internet geekdom is still just silly. What about LOST, if any recent show has had an online geekdom it's that show. Or Smallville. Or Supernatural. Or The OC. Or One Tree Hill. Can you see the pattern? It's shows aimed at tweenies. (With the exception of LOST), with the way Internet is being used today these shows tend to be discussed a lot online, as other things that people enjoy (such as NUFC and football in general for one). There's actually very few people left that are hardcore Whedon lovers online these days as they've moved on. Sure, there are Buffy/Angel lovers, but these as well did not enjoy Dollhouse. It's really quite simple, you don't like Whedon and don't rate his shows as "good". Why try to label it as something else? There's loads of people I don't enjoy the work of, I don't try to make up s*** about their fans only being Internet geeks. I just say I'm not too fond of that particular person and/or film/show.

There's fans of everything online, to single out one of the smaller groups (at the moment) and try to use them as an argument as to why you're not a fan of someone is downright silly. The issue is clear, as said before, you're just not a fan of Whedon and thus you don't enjoy discussing Whedon. Hence everyone that does enjoy Whedon is an "Internet geek", just as every person supporting, say, Chelsea, is a mindless fuckwit. (just an example, you've not said that.)

How do I fall into the group of a Whedon Internet Geek by the way? I mention on here why I am a fan of his and why I enjoy his work. I don't go around all over the net proclaiming my love for him, I don't throw his name into every other sentence unless it's the subject of conversation. I enjoyed LOST, and when that's the subject of conversation I talk about why I like LOST. I enjoy The Sopranos, and when that is the subject of conversation I enjoy talking about just why I love that show. These are all shows that are created by people I like, and that I one day hope to be at least 1% as good as when it comes to what I do. If it's the subject of conversation in everyday life as well, or during work, I also enjoy talking about it, because it's something that interests me and I enjoy. To try to use an argument that because I like Whedon I'm an "Internet geek" is insulting, and quite frankly based on nothing else than your own particular like/dislike of said person. You don't enjoy his style, hence everybody else that does is wrong. Don't you see how that's an incorrect way to go about things?

I could go on and use other examples as well, but then again, if I did anyone who enjoyed these examples would probably be an Internet geek as well. It's YEARS since Whedon was the king of the Internet, man. It was back when his good shows were still on air. If you want to start saying someone is the "champion of the Internets" you'd be better off saying it's J.J. Abrams, because at least he's still a hot topic when television or movies are being discussed.

And if you knew anything about writing, you'd know that to get in a pop culture reference that work is f***ing hard, not easy. :lol:

Star-ving with David Faustino is another award winning web-series, I reckon David Faustino is the champion of all geeks as well.

And your mind isn't set, your mind is wrong. And so wrong it feels incredibly frustrating when people have that particular set of thoughts towards something. It's like someone continually proclaiming "should have" should be written as "should of" as it's the correct way of spelling it.

Of course it goes from discussing both Whedon and yourself, as I'm trying to get a point about him through to you. Thus I need to use yourself and your opinion as an example put up against the truth about what you claim is facts about any Whedon fan. If I lose credibility trying to get you to understand what the difference between personal opinion and general facts about someone is, then so be it.

I don't champion Joss Whedon. Joss Whedon have done utter tripe, as I've acknowledged earlier in this thead. (Dollhouse, Alien: Ressurection). I enjoy his writing, as does anyone who knows anything about screenwriting. It's sharp, it's smart, and the dialogue flows very well. He's not one of the best out there, not anywhere near. I could probably list over thirty other people I put above him. What annoys me is when people try to pass personal opinion as fact, it's always annoyed me. You can check the pet hates thread for reference a ton of times, also the film you've recently watched thread. I appreciate good work, even if I personally enjoy it or not. And I f***ing can't stand when people try to say something is s*** just because they're not fond of it, when if you look at the basis of everything said person have done and his achievments, it's personal opionion being passed off as fact. It's like trying to argue that Star Wars is absolute s*** because it takes place in outer space, or that Lord of the Rings is utter s*** because there's dwarves in it and you really, really[/i], don't like dwarves.

You all know just how much I hate Glee, I absolutely despise that show. But that doesn't change the fact that the show deep down is a smart, well written, show that takes advantage of what the market at current wants. The same goes for the show "The Vampire Diaries". I really, really, can't stand that show. But I still acknowledge that it's done in a way that appeales to it's audience, and have a very talented showrunner in Kevin Williamson behind it.

My entire argument have been to make you understand personal opinion is not fact. You've been arguing that Joss Whedon is the Internet's champion and that you don't like his type of show. I've been arguing that his shows from a writer's viewpoint are actually very good, and were even used as examples of how to write dialogue well during my time at college. My main issue have been being called an Internet geek because I jumped to Whedon's defence. I mean, sure, I'm well versed on what's "hot" on the Internet most of the time as I spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen avoiding actual work working. But the fact that I do enjoy Whedon's shows and writing shouldn't make me one, as due to my Internet "geekdom" I know he's not a hot onion online these days. Whedonverse is practically dead, and most of today's tween target audience aren't really that aware of Whedon.

I tried to argue that because you didn't like it didn't mean it was "bad", and that you should just say that you didn't like him for these reasons and not try to make the point that the "Internet" loves him and that's why he's still in a job. In your eyes the Whedonverse is not good entertainment, and it's most likely shared by a fair few others, which is more than fair enough. But as mentioned, my biggest pet hate is when people try to pass their personal taste off as fact for the majority. I accept wholeheartedly that you don't like Whedon, I can even understand why he's not appeling to you through what you've said. But it's not the point, my point is that you've been trying to undermine his work and the people that do like it by saying they're "Internet geeks that champion him". Everybody have fans online. Everybody. Why is that a point worth making? Why not just say you don't like his work? Why try to ridicule anyone that do like him? That's my beef. That's what I've been trying to argue against. But it keeps seeming like we're missing eachothers points, or that you're just missing mine on purpose. Not to mention that you keep headlining your points by continually proclaiming you've made the Internet angry and needing a firewall. It really does not help your point at all.

Also, I've not instantly disregarded anything you've said about your view on the shows as "wrong". I've said everyone's entitled to their own personal opinion. My main issue have, and is, the fact you try to argue your view by saying he's the "champion of the Internet".

You've done that twice now.

You say I'm giving opinion as fact, but then in turn do it yourself.

The difference here is that it's about what my main argument is about, you saying he is the "champion of the Internet". Which he is not. This is a cold, hard, fact from an "Internet geek". Your own personal opinion against his show and writing style is fair game, as for everybody else. But you're (as I've read it) trying to say people rate his work because he is the Internet's champion, and not because other people find it good. Hence saying your view on his work is the truth and that everybody else is just an "Internet geek".

No, my point was, if you say anything bad about Joss Whedon on an internet forum, you'll usually get flamed to high heaven within minutes. Which sort of happened in this thread.

You can say as much bad about him as you like on my part. Just don't say people that enjoy his work are "Internet geeks" in a way that makes it seem that anyone that likes what he does is one. :lol:

No, what's angered me is that you (as it read to me) based your argument for not liking his work on proclaiming people that did like him were "Internet geeks" defending the "Champion of the Internet" instead of acknowledging that people have different taste. I just can't stand when people dismiss anything they don't like as s*** and don't acknowledge where other people may enjoy it just because they don't enjoy something themselves. :lol:

I respect your opinion, you can dislike Joss Whedon as much as you like. Just as I can dislike Glee as much as I like. It's freedom of speech. Just allow other people the same freedom of speech and avoid saying someone/thing is s*** and that everybody thinking something else is wrong (or in this case an Internet geek) as your initial point read to me. That's been my main issue the entire time, and admittedly the fact it's you that's done it makes my reaction worse as the reason I find you one of my fav posters is the fact that you tend to be able to discuss things in a way that respects both sides of an argument and thus is an interesting person to discuss things with.  :razz: I'll happily admit I'm an Internet geek, it kinds comes naturally to a person like me. I just was not fond of the generalization of people who like Whedon as Internet geeks in a way that seemed like you saying it devalued their opinion on the matter compared to yours. Hopefully I've misunderstood you from the beginning and we can continue on our merry way and start discussing Ant Man.  :thup:

Not sure Ant-Man deserves it's own movie. I know Pym is an important part of the Avenger's world, but I'm sure his back story can be summed up in a 10 minute vignette within the Avenger's movie itself. I suspect that Ant-Man will be a 'light hearted' Superhero movie, based on the subject matter, and two of the names attached as director and writer.

can't believe i'm saying this, also that i'm agreeing with Kenobi, but Whedon has to come up with something and he has to do it fast

i loved buffy, angel started well and fell apart, firefly was good but was never gonna be commercially big (same with serenity) - ALL of that, however, should essentially be wiped from the slate after watching dollhouse

a disgrace, i actually hated myself for a fair period of time for watching the 2nd series but i was sure he'd pull something out of the fire, yet alas it was more of the same s***

suppose what i'm saying (and probably Kenobi but he'll doubtless argue with me for the sake if it ;)) is that Whedon's star is fading and is almost out - on what basis has he been given the Avengers movie?  certainly not commercial or financial...more likely that he's the nerd's nerd making TV and movies nerds love

can't see another reason for it

Most likely he wanted the gig, went and pitched his best idea to the studio who also liked it, and had a CV that meant they could justify giving him the gig. It's not looking more complicated than that at the moment and that's how it usually happens. :thup:

When was the last time a Whedon project was financially successful out of interest?

Someone was chelping on Empire or somewhere about why the studios let Abrams do what he wants compared to Whedon...$$$$$$ being the answer.

The only reason Whedon's got this is because he'll have pitched the best idea and plan to the studio, they'll not have gone and asked him themselves. Zak Penn had originally written the script, and Joss is only really "reworking" it. A $150m feature will not have room for much artistery by any writer/director as the studio will look to sell their toys and other items as well as see the movie recoup it's budget. You get a job description from the studio when you take the gig, and that's what you need to do or you'll get the sack/walk like what happened with Spider-Man 4.

In fact:
Quote from: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1644849/20100730/story.jhtml
We asked him how they made the decision to hire Joss despite his having only directed one feature film (2005's "Serenity").

"I've known Joss for many years. We were looking for the right thing and he came in and met on it," ," Feige explained. "As you've already heard him say on his panels, he's incredibly intelligent, he's got great things to say about it, and if you look at the directors we've worked with, we hire directors who have the potential to do great things and we want our film to be that great thing."

Not really, confused why you think this. Think we've had one discussion, which I can't remember fully. Sure it was over something pointless though.

--

The Avengers Movie is possibly THE biggest Superhero Movie project to happen, it'll be the most scrutinised too. It has so much history, so many characters and anything less than perfect will result in a lot of angry internet nerds (myself included). I'll admit that Whedon has balls to put himself forward for it. There's already something I don't like about it, and that's Norton isn't set to reprise his role as Banner. So I'm expecting very little Hulk, and the Hulk we do see to be CGI.

I have my doubts about the avengers movie for several reasons.
I'm not a fan of joss whedon, yeah he did buffy and firefly etc but I never thought they were all that good, the best thing of his i've seen was Dr horrible and that was only good because of Neil Patrick Harris. his run on astonishing xmen was ok and for a time was one of teh best X-books about but it tailed off towards the end and I lost interest.
Its a fairly big ensemble cast and i'm not sure whedon has what it takes to get the most out of the actors. one of teh things that made iron man good, was favreu's ability to get the most out of some big name actors and in particular RDJ.

I hate the fact that they have cast Chris evans as captain america, he is not a strong actor, he doesn't come across as having a commanding presence on screen and thats part of what makes captain america who he is, he's a strong leader and a symbol of american patriotism.

getting in yet another actor to play the Hulk is another mistake, especially after the general feeling was that norton did a good job.

should be interesting to see though, and as with any comic to film I look forward to being proven wrong

DEADLINE EXCLUSIVE: Chris Nolan is lining up actresses he'll meet for two female lead roles in The Dark Knight Rises, the third installment of the Batfranchise which Warner Bros has dated release on July 20, 2012. I'm told one of the roles is a love interest for Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne, and the other is a villain. The actresses are: Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley. Nolan is keeping the roles under wraps, just the way that he did when he drafted his Inception star Tom Hardy to come aboard to likely play a villain. Deadline broke that story October 13.

That's a good  :fwap: list.  Can see Anne Hathaway / Naomi Watts being the most likely cast though as the rest have all been cast in big name sci-fi / fantasy genre films in the past.  Never heard of Blake Liveley before, but would say that she's the least likely, being in the next big DC release as Carol Ferris in Green Lantern according to imdb.

Personally I'd cast Rachel Weisz.  Ding dong.
Title: Re: Comic Book/Comic Movies Thread
Post by: mrmojorisin75 on Friday 12 November 2010, 11:56:21 AM
surely Hathaway and most of the others there would be coming to replace the Rachel character as a stereotype love interest? 

don't see them going for a young lass in any type of villain role tbh

poison ivy could make the cut as a character though, easy one to bring into the 'universe' he's created, she kills people with poison!

I would recommend Powers, Preacher, Transmetropolitan (obviously), Daredevil from the point of the Kevin Smith / Joe Quesada reboot, Sin City, Punisher from the Garth Ennis / Steve Dillon reboot and if you have a lot of time to spare Cerebus The Aardvaark. 

The All -Star Batman and Robin title was a bit meh, so wouldn't propose that, but A Superman For All Seasons was good.  In fact the three Joeb / Sale Marvel titles that they did, Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow and Hulk:Grey were canny from what I remember.

I've just finished the Batman: RIP book - don't ever read this.  A load of jumbled up, badly written and badly drawn s****.

Aye, the Death books were a good read - Chris Bachalo did a superb job on the art in The High Cost of Living and The Time of Your Life.  The only other Death book I read was a Manga style title called At Death's Door, but it wasn't written by Neil Gaiman.  The Sandman was a good read but was a bit too wierd at times.  I'd probably say the same for The Invisibles as well.

So...

WB want to Reboot Buffy but without The Whedon involved.

http://io9.com/5696522/its-really-happening-warner-brothers-reboots-buffy-the-vampire-slayer-without-joss-whedon

Quote
    LOS ANGELES, NOVEMBER 11, 2010 – Atlas Entertainment announced today it is rebooting the beloved franchise, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with Warner Bros. Pictures. Atlas' Charles Roven and Steve Alexander will produce the feature film alongside Doug Davison and Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment (The Ring, How to Train Your Dragon, The Departed). Whit Anderson is writing the script.

    Warner Bros. Pictures optioned the rights from creators Fran and Kaz Kuzui, and from Sandollar Productions (Sandy Gallin and Dolly Parton), for Atlas and Vertigo to produce. Buffy the Vampire Slayer first appeared as a film in 1992, subsequently becoming a cult hit and spawning the wildly popular television series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz, among many others.

    "Whit approached us with an exciting idea about how to update Buffy," said Roven. "There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character's return to the big screen. We're thrilled to team up with Doug and Roy on a re-imagining of Buffy and the world she inhabits. Details of the film are being kept under wraps, but I can say while this is not your high school Buffy, she'll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be."

Old news.

Here's Joss Whedon's open letter to WB about it:

Quote
This is a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths — just because they can't think of an original idea of their own, like I did with my Avengers idea that I made up myself.

Obviously I have strong, mixed emotions about something like this. My first reaction upon hearing who was writing it was, "Whit Stillman AND Wes Anderson? This is gonna be the most sardonically adorable movie EVER." Apparently I was misinformed. Then I thought, "I'll make a mint! This is worth more than all my Toy Story residuals combined!" Apparently I am seldom informed of anything. And possibly a little slow. But seriously, are vampires even popular any more?

I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death. But, you know, AFTER. I don't love the idea of my creation in other hands, but I'm also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly. I can't wish people who are passionate about my little myth ill. I can, however, take this time to announce that I'm making a Batman movie. Because there's a franchise that truly needs updating. So look for The Dark Knight Rises Way Earlier Than That Other One And Also More Cheaply And In Toronto, rebooting into a theater near you.

Leave me to my pain!

Sincerely,
Joss Whedon.

there's a lot to dislike i agree, in fact now you mention it i'm struggling to see how the positives outweigh the negatives but Routh was f***ing perfect (in the sense that he nailed a reeves like superman)

i suppose i liked it because they tried very hard to fit into the existing, previous films instead of just wiping the slate clean...in that sense i expected the sequel that is now never going to come from singer to be very strong once the background s*** was out of the way, much like x-men & sequel

i actually liked the son part and how they linked it to brando and all that, it was handled it little lamely i agree but the setup for the next film was there for me - villains trying to take him down via the bairn and it all kicking off

also followed the superman as jesus allegory pretty well

A tremendous read.  Possibly the only one of the giant crossover 'event' stories that either Marvel or DC ever published that actually delivered what it was supposed to.  Marv Wolfman and George Perez at their very best as well.

I'll put my hat into the ring for the Superman Returns part as well.  Thought that it was a half and half movie.  The first half was very much in the style of the first Donner film and was building up to the big 'reveal' and I thought that it was done very well.  The second half of the film was again similar to the first, but in the story line as it was another Luthor landsnatch scheme, but was even more nonsensical than the 'reverse the world and time goes backwards' from the first one, and too dreary and far too long.

Its been great, near the end now (The Flashes and Supes have just realised there's only one universe now). Tynemouth market have a guy with s*** loads of DC/Marvel comics for 50p each, or a bunch of £5.  :thup:

Thing is they sort of feel obliged to do Thor since he forms the Avengers with Captain America. Still, they could have spent 20mins of the Movie (Avenger's Movie) filling Thor's background in. The whole magic Norske stuff is really going to fly over people's heads.

All the 'recent' Superhero movies have been at least decent (yes even Superman Returns!). Still haven't seen Iron Man 2 now I think about it. Iron Man was fantastic though, but that could be because that was the only Marvel comic I ever really followed. Guy at Tynemouth had LOADS of Thor comics from the 90s for 50p each, or 5 for £2 was tempted to grab them all.

Before my time, man! Only started reading Batman during Knightfall, remember the time well. Running to the smelly cornershop with their over priced tinned foods from a strange new world to buy the Double Header Batman/Superman comic for about £4 in the 90s. Knightfall and The Death of Superman, was amazing. Looking back, it was probably a bad start for a comic fan, as I was spoilt and ruined to ever find anything that would match it again.

Had no real idea who the other heroes were in the Superman story, outside of the cheesy early 90's movies I had seen. So didn't really feel bad when Blue Beetle got stomped.

Ah, The Punisher (another one on my to read list). He seems really out of place in the Marvel universe for some reason, I can see him being a much better DC character. He's too 'Shades of Grey' for Marvel where everyone is clear cut good/bad. Even Hulk is good, even when he's being bad. Just the small interaction between Frank Castle and Captain America in Civil War was awesome (and the aftermath).

problem with batman is that its extremely difficult to pick up and read. there is far too much history and stuff happening all the time for a casual or new reader to pick up.
The recent Batman RIP and return of bruce wayne story lines were meant to be good places to get into it, but again there is a lot of history and all the batman books tie in to each other somehow so you cant just read detective comics, you have to read all the books with batman in, and there are many. much like wolverine in the marvel U

Worst thing about that film was the bit where he lifts the planet of kryptonite into outer space.

I also didn't like the portrayal of Lex Luthor as a guy who wanted to wreck things. He was more of wants to be in power kinda guy. The casting of Kevin Spacey was good though.

WB says they will reboot the Batman franchise after The Dark Knight Rises with Nolan being the producer of the reboot series.

Quote
With Christopher Nolan directing his last installment, “The Dark Knight Rises,” it looks like neither he nor Warner Bros. are ready to let go of huge comic tentpole just yet. Plans are to reboot it entirely—but with Christopher Nolan overlooking the process. “We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman,” Warner Bros. chief Jeff Robinov said. Asked if he meant a reboot, he said: “I do. Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

This would no matter what be Nolans last Batman (with regards to writing and directing), and to be honest I'd prefer a reboot rather than some f***er coming in messing with what Nolan's created just for it to fail spectacularily and potentially devalue Nolan's work. This ala the Burton to Schumacher process in the 90s films, thinking about it still makes me shudder. :harry:

The Spider-Man thing I agree with though, they only rebooted that because the studio refused to let Raimi use, firstly, The Lizard as the villain due to the studio wanting a human face. Then secondly refusing him to use Vulture as they feared he'd not sell enough toys. Then, after Raimi throws his toys out of the pram and leaves the project, taking Maguire with him, they decide to have The Lizard be the main villain in the reboot. I mean, come on! :lol:

don't see the problem with a reboot myself, at the end of this trilogy they'll have created the finest and most profitable (?) comic book series ever made so why try to follow that and make a total shitsack of it?

a re-boot could mean anything, let's face it, they could drop into any of the thousands of story arcs from batman and look to do something original and fresh with the genre as they did with this series

Aye, 'reboot' isn't too bad. They could move the whole thing forward 10 years and have an older Batman, for example, since most of these movies are within year 1-3 of Batman's Comic Life storyline wise.
Title: Re: Comic Book/Comic Movies Thread
Post by: Spider Jerusalem on Wednesday 30 March 2011, 09:40:41 AM
The word reboot just implies that they are going to throw away the established story line and start from scratch again.  The Batman franchise required a total rebuild after the debacle of the last series of films.  Batman doesn't need a rebuild, neither does Spider-Man.  The idea of moving the story on to a later period of the Batman's life is the best idea, but will probably just end up with another telling of The Joker's storyline.

What's actually grinding my gears about this idea is that the next film isn't even in production yet, but they're already telling us that the events of the story will have no further consequence once the credit's start rolling.
Title: Re: Comic Book/Comic Movies Thread
Post by: Kaizero on Wednesday 30 March 2011, 11:04:27 AM
Why is that annoying? We've known for ages that nothing would happen in Nolans Batmanverse after this movie, they are just letting us know there will be more batman after this, we still don't know what their plans are. Not to mention that Nolan will be producing the "reboot", which makes me think there's a chance we might see something akin to what Obi talked about.

Spider-Man was rebooted for totally different reasons, and it was pretty much the only way to do things if they didn't want to leave the Spider-Man franchise dead for years. It didn't need a reboot, but even though it was the studio that shot themselves in the foot it's not like they would let one of the biggest grossing movie franchises in recent history just die.

Batman does not need a reboot after The Dark Knight Rises.
If they wanted to do something different, then why not adapt the batman Beyond storyline to film?

Spiderman needed a reboot and a fresh approach after the shambolic spiderman 3. so rebooting spidey and making it more like the ultimate spiderman comics where he's still at school and uses web shooters(although tis is more original spidey) should be good.

Toby mcguire needed to go.

If they are going to do it, then definately do it like this maybe three films detailing Batman at his peak then ultimately disapearing to set up a final three dealing with The Dark Knight Returns. Really hate the idea of a complete reboot going back to the origin again ala spiderman.

Well, nothing to the actual Batman story if you want to be precise, but that's not what would mess it up. He's created a Gotham and "universe" as good as it's beeb on live-action film before, and asking someone to recreate the feel he's added to the films is a big ask. Again, just look at the Burton/Schumacher transition from "cool s***" to "Holy camp, Batman!" as a reference of how bad someone might make something great if the wrong person gets their hands on it.

he created the best two (probably end up being a trilogy of course) comic book adaptations ever made, and anyone saying otherwise is a loon

keep saying it but if script of the dark knight had been filmed as a 'normal' movie with more conventional heroes and villains it'd have been one of of the greatest crime/thrillers ever made and rightly recognised as such - it's only because it's Batman that people were able to dismiss it so easily

Not 100%, but its been amplified from a characteristic, and the subplot of one story arch. It borrowed heavily from The Long Halloween, and chopped over some elements to give The Joker more meaning. Bits were taken from The Man Who Laughs too. Still, doesn't really matter, awesome movie.

However, the court also ruled that if Warner Bros. does not start a new Superman film by 2011, the family will have the right to sue to recover damages

Thought the end frames of Ultimate Spiderman #160 were really decent. I've recently decided to give Green Lantern a chance (since its the backbone of DC at the moment), though wondering what's going to happen when all the DC franchises are rebooted in August.

Everything goes back to Issue #1! I'll probably buy one or two of them twice (one to read, one to bag/store). Think Batman is gearing up to out Bruce Wayne as Batman before it ends, seems to be something building up across a few different stories.

I can't work how WHY they're doing it. Maybe there's something somewhere in the history that's clogged up potential storylines. The current one 'Flashpoint' is set in an alternate history, which makes me think that maybe they're scraping the barrel. The last DC reboot was over 20 years ago though, so that's not bad going at all, so I guess from a franchise point of view they might think its too complicated for new readers to fall in and pick up.

On the flip side Marvel seems to reboot every 5 years, and not even across the board! Which really puts me off wanting to invest into any of the stories.

But yeah, Batman is pretty complicated at the moment, and Superman has been in stand by mode for years, which is probably why Green lantern has been the backbone of DC lately.

It will be easy to f*** up especially under some else buy going onto Batman 4,5, 6 etc. It will be interesting to see how Nolan ends his story. I'm not bothered by a possible reboot as long as they don't completely dismiss the history of Nolan's story so far.

If they just want to throw out some inconvenient continuity, they can do that at any time. (In fact, they've been doing this regularly for something like the past decade.)

This time, they've decided to f*** things up line-wide instead. Change for changes sake is everywhere except for Green Lantern and Batman, which to be fair are the only two lines that are actually working properly at the moment. Still, an anti-hero, unmarried Superman? Unraveling decades of character development in Barbara Gordon by making her Batgirl again? Deleting beloved characters steeped in history like the JSA and Connor Kent just because they're "too complicated for new readers?"

There's only one possible reason for any of this and I think I know what it is: desperation. The entire DC line has been nosediving in both quality and sales for years now save stuff written by Johns and Morrisson. This company has painted itself into a corner with bad decision after bad decision and now this is their last hail-mary attempt at becoming culturally relevant again.

In the end it's all going to go tits up when old-time readers realize that the books still suck and they've just gotten rid of most of the stuff that appeals to them. New readers won't come because the right way to expand your market is to make comic book movies that aren't terrible, not to reboot a bunch of continuity that the average joe doesn't even care about. Not to be overly dramatic, but unless Warner is willing to pump money in to keep them going indefinitely, I don't think DC has too long left in it. Obviously characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman will never die, but the larger universe as a whole might be on its last legs.
Title: Re: Comic Book/Comic Movies Thread
Post by: ObiChrisKenobi on Thursday 7 July 2011, 02:32:49 PM
Man, I'm not sure DC will fold, but as far as I've ever really been concerned there's only been 3/4 real 'heroes' in the DC universe:

Superman
Batman
Green Lantern
Wonder Woman

Even then I don't really acknowledge Wonder Woman!  :blush:

Agree with what you've said about it being just too over the top for years though, with decisions actioned, and then undone within a few months without any real good story behind it (RIP Batman, most of Superman since 1995!). Wish I had paid more attention to Green Lantern, as what I've read so far has been really interesting (and it looks like the only thing that DC have been able to establish line wide for story archs).

The rest of the DC line up can go to hell though.

Blue Beetle?
Booster Gold? (Though I'm only JUST starting to like him now)
Flash? Not sure he's done anything cool since the reboot in the 80s when he killed himself to save everyone else!

The current Doomsday arch is semi interesting, but not enough is being done with it and I'm starting to feel that the use of Doomsday is just an easy out (even though he hasn't been used a lot, I feel he's been over used if that makes sense).
Be interesting to see where DC goes though, as Marvel have been the 'edgier' of the two for a decade or so now, even though I've always considered them to be the softer of the two. They have big stories that cross multiple lines, that draw you towards new characters. DC rarely does that. Even Blackest Night you could get through by reading 1/2 lines.

However, I will praise DC for finally doing something with the whole Swamp Thing universe again (even if it does come across as an after thought). I'd like them to buy the Punisher rights and transport him into the DC universe!  :lol:

That's one point where we have to disagree. IMO, it's the guys like Blue Beetle and Booster Gold that make DC good, minor characters with their own deep backstory that give you the feeling of a bigger universe. The problem is just that any DC title that doesn't get a-list talent (Just Johns, Morrison, and Gail Simone basically) these days is just horrific by definition, so all their stories have been terrible for a while.

Also, Geoff Johns first Flash Run (with Wally West) in the early 2000s was absolutely amazing and you should check it out if you haven't yet. Arguably still his best work.  O0

Post by: ObiChrisKenobi on Thursday 7 July 2011, 02:43:00 PM
Well, I like the minors when they're part of a major character story, but I'd never go out of my way to buy their own series. I'll have to check out 2000 Flash.

Hopefully the reboots get rid of the 'Super Family' - I've got no need for a Superman Corp complete with flying dog.

from what i have read the film was a massive flop as it was badly acted and directed and relied far too heavily on CGI

why they had to make parallax a big massive turd and yellow cloud thing is just wrong as is the bad guy with the big head completely pointless. should have taken a page from the green lantern first flight animated movie which was vastly superior to the live action offering make sinestro the big bad, the way he should be and embrace the yellow power and be the bad guy.

They said its more than reboot, more of a realignment, bringing the franchise into the modern era of comics. They're moving away from the Green Goblin (even though Proto Goblin is the bad guy in this movie), and introducing new baddies (The Lizard) and making Venom the MAIN baddie. No idea if that's true.

Seems a bit pointless going through the whole "HE GETS BIT BY A SPIDER, MAN!" script again like, there was a film within the last f***ing decade that explained this exact process. He's a nerd, he likes MJ, he lives with his aunty and uncle (who dies), he gets picked on by some bully at school, he gets bit by a spider. Yeah, we get it, just give us a short epilogue or something.

The Incredible Hulk (The 2nd, non-completely s*** film) just assumed we already knew the story and had Bruce Banner as the Hulk right off the belt, and the film was better off for it.

Title: Re: Comic Book/Comic Movies Thread
Post by: ObiChrisKenobi on Wednesday 20 July 2011, 06:30:17 PM
You could say that about any Superhero movie though. They all have their origins, and main story, in the comics, and for the most part the movies follow that.

Superman movies are similar, despite being several decades apart.
Batman movies are similar, despite being totally different in design and direction.
I'm sure even the Captain America movie will be similar to the terrible 80s one.

It'll all depend on how its presented, and what it focuses on.

Rami's Spiderman was the love angle, between Peter Parker and Mary Jane, which is the main story of Spiderman anyway (A Love Story). The new Spiderman movie doesn't even feature Mary Jane, so already its different, instead its involving Gwen Stacy, which is a different dynamic altogether. Hopefully, it'll feature new baddies too, which opens new doors and challenges.

All depends on how many films they have planned, and what the focus of this movie is. If they have several movies in mind, with a huge overarching storyline, then to focus on the origin for most of the movie (ala Batman Begins) doesn't seem too horrible. Its been 10 years since the last Spiderman movie, and this is a new 'Universe' all together, so just like in the comics Ultimate Spiderman is different to Amazing Spiderman, even though its the same bloody thing. They both had an origins story, but it slightly differed from each other.

As or the spiderman thingy from what I have read there is less origin and more other story.
but his origin is retold in parts to correct the mistakes of the past.
His parents feature in this one slightly and his web shooters are not some freak mutation, he makes them(as he should) and there is a greater emphasis on him being a brilliant and intelligent scientist.

As a comic book fan, I avoid this thread because I fear people will start referencing things from the films as being gospel and I'll end up quivering with rage behind my screen a la Taylor27... but having seen the latest offerings (Green Lantern and Captain America), I just want to implore Hollywood to stop. Please, just stop. Stop while you're behind.

Beren, don't worry there's a good mix of knowledge in this thread! I didn't thin Captain America was terrible, but it was little more than a mish mash of ideas that ultimately lead to nothing. Its just an introduction movie.

Fair enough - forgive my comic book elitism :blush: :thup:

Anyhow, I believe there is a fundamental and underlying problem with trying to translate a character like Captain America onto the big screen. I just don't think a film is a medium capable of capturing some of the elements of comics which are (for me) essential to their enjoyment.

I feel the same way about the X-Men movies which I find abhorrent :lol: The Wolverine-asslicking aside, to try and take on the many character histories and complex themes which underpin the various sagas seems a thankless task - one which, frankly, is probably better not to attempt if it means settling for less.

I realise however that I am not the targeted demographic. I will say this though, the first two Blade and Spiderman films were fantastic. I left the theatre of Spiderman 2 with such optimism for the future over what film was now capable of accomplishing. Graphic-wise, I recall Spidey swinging off into the horizon with helicopters following (though my memory may be hazy)... but I suppose the desires of producers interfered and the less said about Spiderman 3 and Blade: Trinity the better!

Funnily enough though, I actually really still enjoy the animated films and cartoon series which they produce. Not sure if you've seen it, but Batman: Under the Red Hood was really powerful. One of the crucial advantages series have is how much more background and character development/explanation they can fit in - so not really a fair fight.

DC has went same-day digital since the relaunch so I decided to check out some of the new books on my iPad since they're only a click(or touch, I suppose) away anyway. Fully expected to hate everything.

So far I have been pleasantly surprised. All of the "flagship" titles so far: JLA, Action, Detective, Batman, WW are all good. Yes, OMG Wonder Woman doesn't suck!

In particular, the new Batman by Scott Snyder is probably the best comic I've read in a very long while.

The only issue I have is with the timescale. "Present day" is supposed to be only five years away from the "dawn of superheros" (which is the point where JLA, Action, and Detective are currently set in.) However, they'e decided not to erase most of the actual continuity. That means everything still happened. Within just five years.

Batman went through three robins, got his back broken, got it unbroken, conceived a child, died, and came back to life. Within the span of five years.

Green Lantern went insane and killed everyone, almost destroyed the universe, reignited the sun, died, was reborn as God's avatar of vengeance, came back to being human, and did all that Sinestro Corps/War of Light/Blackest Night/War of the Green Lanters bullshit. Within the span of five years.

This "trying to clean up continuity but still keeping most of the major storylines by compressing everything" stuff is going to bite them in the ass eventually.

I don't know how a 'gritty' Supreman movie would work tbh. He's supposed to be whiter than white, probably one of the reasons I never really got into Supreman.

Could a Supreman fan tell me what the majority of his story arcs are about? He's almost invincible, super strong, fast, intelligent, has eye lazers and frost breath. How can there be any proper story to a Supreman comic? Is it always a recyling of evil guy gets kryptonite?

Although saying all that I recently read Red Son which was pretty freaking cool.

It's just the way of things. Digital books, music, games all cost the same as their physical counterparts.

Books older than 1 month get discounted to 1.99 if that's any consolation. Hopefully they'll introduce some bundle deals for major storylines in the future. (Would love to see stuff like Geoff John's JSA or Flash runs collected at discount prices)

I don't mind personally. So far having a digital copy of comics has been infinitely superior to having physical ones. They don't take up closets-full of space, they don't get damaged, and you can zoom in/out and do screen captures of frames you like at will. Digital comics is the way of the future.

It's not much of an issue. He usually ends up fighting against Braniac/Doomsday/other Kryptonians who can match him for strength. Or Lex Luthor who just makes his life miserable and/or gets Kryptonite.

The failure of the series in recent years (hell, practically the last decade) hasn't necessarily been a lack of "big bads," but rather the failure to introduce realistic/interesting personal relationships into Superman's life. Everyone knows about Superman's supporting cast: he's married with Lois, works for Perry, and is best pals with Jimmy. Those relationships have grown so stale and archetypal and they've failed to introduce any enduring characters that he can interact with in different ways.

Given that just about every A-list writer DC has ever had has taken a shot and failed at Superman, there seems to be a fundamental problem at work. A lot of the aspects that make the character iconic just don't seem to mesh that well with modern culture.

At least he's got Wonder Woman around to make his books look successful in comparison :lol:

Oh well, they've got carte blanche to pick and choose what counts and doesn't count at this point so I'm sure they can figure out a way to iron things out so it makes sense if they have to.

Blatant and ridiculous logical oversights, such as Damien Wayne already being at least 13 years old or so can be explained away by saying that he was conceived while Bruce was traveling the world training or something.

Seems a bit ridiculous to me.

Yeah, he was born with some sort of virus in his body, that reproduces skin cells. Only it caused brain tissue to grow all around his body, which made his skin really sensitive. So to counter that he had be covered in a blue biomechanical armour that his Dad (Howard Stark) was working on (that eats away at anything that touches it, which is why they were working on a virus that would reproduce skin cells...).

In one frame, a young Tony Stark loses his foot. It grows back. In another he's half burned alive. His legs heal up and grow back (after eating a lot of food).

Its all over the place, I'm not sure I like it at all.

Normal marvel universe Daredevil has the potential to be a really good film, he is pretty much marvels answer to batman. so like begins and the dark knight could have a nice dark gritty feel to the character as he is often portrayed this way in the comics. that crap with ben affleck was a crime

Really enjoying Ultimate Marvel. Haven't read much Marvel though watched plenty of the cartoons in the 90s. Not sure what the general feeling towards Ultimate Marvel is, but I like it. Shame I know how Ultimate Spiderman ends, but its interesting seeing the developments between Spiderman and Goblin.

Three months in and the DC relaunch is still going strong. I'm actively dropping any book that starts to bore me in the slightest and still have the following on my pull list:

Action Comics, Batman, JLA, Swamp Thing, JL Dark, Batwoman, Teen Titans, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, New Guardians

Just started Daytripper. One issue down. Es no malo.

Quote
Daytripper is a comic book series from Vertigo that focuses on the life of Bras de Oliva Domingos at different ages in his life.  Each issue deals with a separate issue in life, ranging from being overshadowed by the work of his parents to the birth of his first child, and how precious each of these moments are in one's life.  Unfortunately, Bras never gets to enjoy those moments, as the series runs a gimmick that features Bras de Oliva Domingos dying at the end of each issue.

The bloke who suggested them also said the new batman and swamp thing comics are awesome as well as Scott Snyder is doing the stories. So I promptly went to ebay and bought all the batman issues out so far, I then saw the new Flash comics and bought them as well. Never spent so much on comics in my life (£35)  :embarrassed:

Picked up three Batman graphic novels the other day as i've only read Year One and The Dark Knight Returns and wanted to get a bit more involved.

The Killing Joke which was absolutely amazing, perfect storytelling. Love the dialogue between Bats and Joker.

The other two Hush and The Long Halloween were both very good reads but need to go back and read them again in a few weeks as The Killing Joke was so perfectly formed that they felt a little overlong in comparison.

Five issues into Animal Man, Batman and The Flash.

Animal Man is outstanding, it's really dark though. Can't believe it's been released by DC, think it would be a Vertigo title at least. Some of the art is mind boggling and really, really creepy, but the story is excellent. A great piece of work so far by Jeff Lemire

Batman written by Scott Snyder and drawn by Spawn artist guy has also been really good. There's been a really interesting twist in the last few issues.

The Flash is the weakest title of the three. Great art but a really 'meh' story. Not sure if I'll continue with it.

The script is being written by André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum (Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol). No director's been named but Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) is reportedly in talks.

Why does Spiderman look like a s*** Deadpool?
Its the new costume he's been working on to fight the Sinister Six. The story line is from this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ends_of_the_Earth_(Marvel_Comics) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ends_of_the_Earth_(Marvel_Comics)) it started in Amazing Spider-Man 682

Ah right. I just started reading Spider-man a few week backs. The Amazing Spider-Man and Venom are the two non Star Wars comic books I read. They're both very good. Venom's numbering was f***ed up though, I really don't see the need for 13.1 - 13.5

I dont read comics any more, wont allow myself into the comic book shop in town as i'll come out with a stack of books and no money left.
but the reviews i have read for the new venom are solid and many have said its as good as the old Lethal protector storyline from the 90's

the premise is very good, and sounds interesting

Breaks all of Batman's code, and even the unwritten rules like how he deals with Joker and Catwoman. Canny class, but I wouldn't want to have seen him last much longer.

Understand what you're saying about Iron Man and Friends. I was surprised at how little Captain America was featured or really explored. In two movie appearances he's came across as bland and boring. I guess its too much too soon to move him out of the 40s to make him the modern edgy Captain America.

Can't stand the Spiderman flicks. They're too kiddie for me. If the makers gear a Carnage (the most homicidal of the Spideyverse villains) flick towards a PG audience, it will demonstrate a total lack of respect to the character.

Nolan's efforts have payed homage to the darker tones associated with Batman. Looking forward to see what he does with Bane, an influential villain on paper.

Not overly keen on the X-Men flicks so far. The last one (the origin of Professor X) was a step in the right direction, with a greater emphasis placed on character development & the mythology associated. The downside - i thought Kevin Bacon was miscast as The Black King (not imposing enough physically).

The X-Men flicks need to tackle a  wide-reaching story arc. The Avengers' creative team have got it bang-on, by introducing Thanos into the frame.

The Age of Apocalypse  arc (the comic book equivalent of The Holocaust and WW2) should be developed for the big screen, preferably a 2-3 film series (aiming for an M-rated audience) to do the story justice. A one film effort would be a half-arsed effort.

Was good, as good as (if not better than) any "comic book" movie I've seen. I was dubious about Ruffalo beforehand, but he didn't really have that much screentime, so it wasn't an issue. I think there wasn't enough light shed on a few of the characters, but obviously they couldn't have a 4 hour movie, so some of the Cap and Thor scenes were probably trimmed.

Sets the bar pretty high for this summer's blockbusters...

Post by: ObiChrisKenobi on Monday 7 May 2012, 12:29:11 PM
Captain America - Underwhelming and one paced.
Thor - Far more light hearted that I thought, however I think it needed that otherwise it'd would have just been too serious for its own good (considering we're talking about Mythological Norse Gods from Outer Space).

Not terrible, and did the job of introducing the Characters to a potentially new fanbase, perhaps left 'comic' fans wanting. I always use my wife as a control group when it comes to these things as she has no interest in the comics at all, but likes the movies.

She thought Captain America was dull.
She liked Thor.
She found The Avengers entertaining, even she was laughing at someone else's child getting hyper whenever the Hulk was on. (Should probably tell her I'm not ready for a sprog).

The Avengers is very interesting, as it's Joss Whedon who writes/directs it, and it ties up closely with both the Iron Man, Thor and the Captain America film franchises.

Internet's favourite Son. Personally think he's over rated and dated.

I take this back slightly. He has redeemed himself with Avengers Assemble.

The Avengers is very interesting, as it's Joss Whedon who writes/directs it, and it ties up closely with both the Iron Man, Thor and the Captain America film franchises.

Internet's favourite Son. Personally think he's over rated and dated.

I take this back slightly. He has redeemed himself with Avengers Assemble.

Man, I was such an arse to Kaiz about Whedon being overrated too.  :okay:

:lol: You're pretty much always a dick, tbf.

Let this brief moment of clarity be what motivates you to watch Monster.

Are you sure you weren't just tripping while watching Kung Fu? I'm sorry, Mike, I'm ripping on SS and I've probably only read like 3 issues with him appearing, I don't really know him. Reminds me of Joe Satriani though.

:lol: I know no one will listen, but SS was awesome back when I was a kid and he was f***ing around with Thanos and all those useless space characters they made.

Plus every once in a while f***ing Impossible Man would pop up and that was always quality.

I must come across as someone who has suffered memory loss at times, but I'm going to recommend the Ultimate Marvel line. Grittier and darker than the standard Marvel. Art work is decent too. Never been a big Gambit fan, but having just read 2 issues of Ultimate X-Men he's alreet!

If we do an Avengers 2 it will be after [Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2]. They have to grow, they have to change. What they've gone through in this movie will impact their state of mind and where they stand in their next movies. Then whatever they go through in those movies is going to affect where we meet them in the next Avengers film. But I think people will be surprised to see, as we go forward — particularly in Iron Man 3 — the notion of how singular the stories can become. Iron Man 3 is a very singular Tony Stark story. As is Thor 2. Cap, who is stuck in the modern day with no friends or family, there will be some revelations of who is still alive from his days in WWII, but SHIELD and Nick Fury are kind of his confidants right now. So of all these movies, Captain America 2 will be most closely associated with Avenger

Punisher: In July 2010, at the San Diego Comic-Con International, company head Kevin Feige revealed that another Punisher reboot is in the works. Feige said that the rights to the character have reverted back to Marvel Studios, and they want to take their own shot at it.

I'm still not convinced that the Lundgren one was even The Punisher to be honest.  No skull motif, continuity or even mention of 'The Punisher' apart from a dodgy TV news part IIRC.  Just looks like a typical 80's straight-to-video actioner that they were making and negotiated the rights to about 95% of the way through production.

It's really good apart from the fact that they release comics out of order, really winds me up. So for example they might release 1, 3,4,5 of a comic then wait two months before they release issue 2.

The Justice Society is a group of superheros that predates the Justice League. They were formed in the 40s and fought Hitler(:lol:) during World War II.

Following the war the government demanded that they unmask themselves, so they refused and went into retirement instead.

A modern day incarnation of the team exists which is composed of original members who for whatever reason have not aged (Green Lantern due to magic, Flash due to the speed force etc.) and "legacy heroes" who have taken on the identity of former members.

Essentially, they're the original heroes from the Golden Age of comics book who've been folded into the history of the DC Universe.

...The hitch being that due to the DC reboot, none of them exist anymore. All JSA/Golden Age related characters have essentially been wiped from the main DC universe in order to make it so that Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman are the first super heroes.

There's no direct connection, but a somewhat-interesting fact is that Watchmen was originally meant to be set in the DC universe, with the main characters being the Charlton Comics characters that DC had recently acquired at the time.

DC editorial torpedoed the idea because they had just bought these characters for a lot of money and didn't want them to be completely f***ed up and unusable after the story, so Moore decided to go with original characters instead. The rest is history.

If your'e familiar with the relevant characters, you can see that some residual influence from them remains with the Watchmen cast: i.e. Nite Owl = Blue Beetle, Dr. Manhattan = Captain Atom, Rorschach = The Question.

Going back to the JSA, anyone even remotely fond of American comics should take the time to read through Geoff Johns' run with the team. (JSA #5-55, Justice Society of America #1-26)

These are the stories that made Geoff Johns famous, and they're very arguably his best work. The sort of long-term character development he does with these guys is something you just don't see in modern comics anymore.

Possibly the best team book run ever.

DC plans to bring a prominent character out of the closet

DC Comics' New 52 has brought plenty of changes to its superpowered characters, but the publisher's policy has been not to change the sexual orientations of any existing characters. That's about to change, however, as DC co-publisher Dan DiDio announces plans to reintroduce an established character as gay.

Last year, DiDio told The Advocate that DC's plans were to introduce new gay characters rather than change the orientation of established characters. However, when asked about that policy at this weekend's Kapow! convention in London, DiDio said that plans had changed, and that a previously established DC character would be introduced in the New 52 universe as gay. DiDio told the audience that the character would become "one of our most prominent gay characters."

The question is: who will it be? It sounds like the character will be one who hasn't yet appeared in the New 52 (so that image above probably won't pan out). Will anyone's slashfic dreams pan out? And will the newly homosexual character be a hero or a villain?

New X-Men movie is sounding promising.
brought back a few of the old cast haven't they? (1st 3 movies cast to be clear)

and is 1st class worth watching

Yeah, they're bringin the Singer movies and the 1st Class movies together. The comic the story is based on is decent too, so it should work out well.

Wouldn't expect it tbh because the director could have done that from the very first film. However, as the plot will revolve around an alternate timeline, we could see different costumes, ones more akin to their comic counterparts. So wouldn't rule it out.

So Punisher teams with Luke Cage--who had segued out of his '70s jive-talking days into a short-lived New Jack Swing phase--to fight drug dealers because that was very important during the early '90s and what else were they going to do? The three-issue arc (the final part of which is unfortunately titled "Fade to White") was cowritten by Marc McLaurin, who penned the '90s Luke Cage book and, uh, not much else. And, yes, Punisher gets pulled over by the cops within a day of being black.

Endings in comics are always a little flat, as they're scared to shake up anything major in case it kills long term sales/development (which is dumb as who wouldn't want to read about the fallout and potential recovery). Tie ins are nearly always s*** and worthless, which is why they're tie ins.

Thanks for sharing, will get down there today.

I've gone into a comic buying frenzy recently. I started collecting with the DC new 52, got Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Batman, I Vampire and the Flash. The flash lasted 3 issues before I got bored, great art but poor story. I Vampire a bit longer but I stopped that too. Now going for Saga as well, although I missed the first 6 Issues I managed to find numbers 2,4 and 5 for 50p each in the travelling man bin. While rooting around I also found Wonder Woman no.3, Manhattan project 4 and the first two issues of Great Pacific which I'm going to start following.

Don't know what's happened but I'm really getting into BUYING comics. Already got a list of Image series I'm going to follow when they start :lol:

I've really enjoyed the Batman and Animal man arcs. Snyder and Lemire are good at what they do.

I've gone into a comic buying frenzy recently. I started collecting with the DC new 52, got Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Batman, I Vampire and the Flash. The flash lasted 3 issues before I got bored, great art but poor story. I Vampire a bit longer but I stopped that too. Now going for Saga as well, although I missed the first 6 Issues I managed to find numbers 2,4 and 5 for 50p each in the travelling man bin. While rooting around I also found Wonder Woman no.3, Manhattan project 4 and the first two issues of Great Pacific which I'm going to start following.

Don't know what's happened but I'm really getting into BUYING comics. Already got a list of Image series I'm going to follow when they start :lol:

I've really enjoyed the Batman and Animal man arcs. Snyder and Lemire are good at what they do.

Good man, digital just isn't the same. TPBs work out cheaper but I like buying comics every Wednesday :aww:

Were they singles or TPB? Singles will work out more expensive in the long run but TPBs will take longer to be released. I'm sure you can torrent them if you want but I personally don't as I like have the physical comics rather than just a file on my computer.

I'm not completely sold on a Justice League movie. We're yet to see if the new Superman movie will be any good. The Batman movies were great, but it looks like Bale is finished.

been torrenting loads of comics lately just as i need to feed my addiction and simply cannot afford to keep up

Death of the family was good. but feel it was missing something but it could just be my bias towards the whole new 52 thing

All-new xmen is interesting and seems like a decent story. in fact now that bendis has hold of it i'd imagine most of the xmen stuff will be good

Deadpool well what can I say, its hard to make a bad deadpool book, simply because of the stuff he comes out with. from what i have read of the current new on-going series its seems they have tried to go a little bit more whacky and some of the stuff reminds me a little of the lobo on-going series of the 90's when the main man's popularity was at its peak.

I go in forbidden planet sometimes for books(novels) which is all on the basement lvl so i kind of get to hide a bit, but always feel uber geek coming out of the place.
traveling man had a fairly lush/geeky lass that used to work there(maybe still does, but i cant allow myself into the shop as i'll spend a fortune) always made the weekly purchase feel less geeky by handing cash to a bird for comics

I never got Akira when I watched it. Smoked some weed and it started to make sense, although the comprehension went with the high. I've been meaning to read the manga as well at some point.

So some of the comics I've got recently

East of West no.1: The story has started well enough, its a futuristic western set in an alternate reality America where the native Americans banded together to form a third force during the American civil war. Art looks great and it's been hyped a lot, will continue following this one.

End time of Bran and Ben no.3: The rapture has come and a guy who was accidentally sent to haven, only to be thrown out again, decides that the afterlife would be very boring up on high so decides to declare himself the antichrist. Fairly amusing, only one issue left in the first volume so I'll get it to complete the set. Not sure I'll continue following it though.

Change no.1: Haven't a clue what's going on, really confusing story and writing style. Think it's amied at a more cerebral crowed than me, not my kettle of fish 2/10 wnb etc.

Five Ghosts - The Haunting of Fabian Grey no.1: Pulp adventure comic set in WW2 era. Guy has the ability to channel one of five ghosts to gain their powers, ghosts include samurai dude, wizard, and Sherlock Holmes, randomly. Decent start, will buy a few issues to see how it goes. Not normally what I go for though.

Obviously I loved Saga this month  :aww:

I've ended up spending a chunk of cash buying first print issues 1, 3 and 5 of Saga to complete my collection. I've got them all now, I'm fairly certain they will only go up in value. Thinking about getting a few of them framed and hung up as the cover art is beautiful.

Keeping a decades old promise to myself by reading the Akira books.

I now know why the f***ing movie makes no sense.

I never got Akira when I watched it. Smoked some weed and it started to make sense, although the comprehension went with the high. I've been meaning to read the manga as well at some point.

Same with Evangelion, I bought one of the films, thinking it would be a stand alone which would explain stuff, nope. Didn't get a f***ing thing so I gave up 30 mins in.

I assume you bought End of Evangelion? Death and Rebirth summarises the whole series and then leads into End of Evangelion.

Evangelion was one of my favourite series during my anime/manga phase. On that note, the new Dragonball Z anime film came out yesterday :smug: (fao Mike, shut up).

Mike & Dino - you guys seen the fuss over Saga 12? What a pathetic shambles, had to buy the comic from the Comixology website then read it on my laptop before eventually working out how to sync to App on my Nexus 7. It was horrible reading on the laptop compared to the Nexus, lost so much until I re-read once i'd worked out where it syncs to on the app. If it's all due to the images in question it's a shameful situation, and censorship of the highest order. Something doesn't ring right, heard they using it as a test to see if they can cut Apple and Googles fee from the Apps by getting people to buy through the webiste. May just have to switch to print if this continues.

It was easy enough once I worked out where it appeared in the App after buying on the website but I really don't like the idea of them streaming content they don't like or deem adult to the website not the App. Guess we'll have to see how it develops, but if you cant buy everything at source for tablet them i'm becoming a Luddite and going to print.

I got the Invincible compendium from amazon for £32 from amazon, that's the first 48 issues of the comic.

Invincible has always been a comic I've wanted to get into but never had the money to buy all the individual issues. Got to say I'm about half way in at the moment and it's great, don't know how they do it. The story is pretty stale but it's an excellent comic. Up there with Chew and Saga for me.

Is it the same team that does every comic or do artists and writers change? If it is constant then maybe the team just wants a chance to produce a backlog of issues so they don't fall behind. I'd prefer a 3 month break than issues continually getting delayed.

Only two books worth reading, imo. Chew and Saga. Nothing else really grabs me.

It's not Star Wars. It's...if I couldn't think of a better comparison (hint hint) I'd call it a funny Romeo and Juliet in space. Except Mercutio is a giant spider with tits. I dunno.

It's a good story, and it's consistently funny.

Chew is pretty f***ing hilarious.

Been watching a lot of the animated DC movies recently, and they s*** all over their Marvel equivalents. Some of them are great, especially....

Batman - The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 & 2, Under The Red Hood
Batman/Superman - Public Enemies
Superman - All-Star Superman
Justice League - Crisis On Two Earths, Flashpoint Paradox.

the original mini series, The X-force stuff, Cable and deadpool was all good and the first series

Weird, I just came in here to talk about Preacher. A friend lent me the first book a while back and I absolutely loved it. I want to buy all of them and work my way through.

Just saw the Days of Future Past trailer.

Wolverine instead of Kitty/Bishop :lol: :lol: Dear me.

Anyway, then I came across this entertaining list of people who could kill Wolverine - don't agree with them all, but it's nice to talk/read the writings of people who know something:

Quote
Jean--Shut down his mind. Mentally tear his body apart.
Xavier--Shut down his mind.
Magneto--Are you serious?
Polaris--See above.
Joseph--See above.
Hulk--Brute strength.
Juggernaut--See above.
Colossus--See above (Wolverine does not have the strength/force required to pierce Colossus's organic steel. If he did, it would be another story. Check out the Adamantium vs. Colossus thread if you wish)
Cyclops--Leave him as holey as swiss cheese, hitting all of his vital organs at once, which will not allow him to regenerate in time to save him.
Psylocke--Couple ways. She is a much better martial artists, so she could beat the hell out of him, then snap his neck. Or she, too, could shut down his mind.
M--Brute Strength
Quicksilver--Knock him out before Wolverine knew what him him. Then proceed to break his neck.
Northstar--See above.
Storm--Lightning. Enough of it will fry Wolvie.
Bishop--He knows how to beat EVERYONE (basically).
Magma--Drench and then seal him in molten rock, magma if you will.
Iceman--Freeze him dead. Yes, this will kill you if you are frozen to the point where no bodily function can take place.
Sentinel--Has killed him before. Could do it again.
Beast--Hell, I think he can do it. Beast is underrated. He is FAR more agile is FAR stronger than Wolverine. It would be like Spiderman all over again. Just blue.
Havok--See Cyclops.
Blob--Wolverine's claws do nothing to his skin. Blob then proceeds to sit on him.
Nightcrawler--BAMF! Neck snap.
Banshee--Cause his head to explode.
Siryn--See above.
Emma Frost--See Jean, Xavier, or Psylocke.
Sunfire--Completely toast Wolvie to ashes.
Gladiator--I'm not going to even say why.
Sasquatch--Brute strength.
Cannonball--He could just pummel the life out of him. Completely invulnerable when in flight mode.
Shinobi Shaw--Can become intagible, then tangible inside of Wolvie's body. Imagine a hand suddenly appearing where your heart should be.
Sebastian Shaw--Brute strength.
Shadowcat--See Shinobi Shaw.
Rogue--Energy sap. Or, if this is old-school Rogue, brute strength.
Gambit--Enough cards will indeed cause massive bodily trauma (huge blood loss, destruction of very vital organs), causing death.
Rachel Summers--See any of the telepaths.
Sunspot--Brute strength.
Karma--Control his actions. Make him stab himself repeatedly till dead.
Legion--See any of the telepaths.
Archangel--Impale him with shard after shard from his wings.
Apocalypse--Exactly.
Dazzler--Cut him him up with lasers.
Longshot--He'd get very lucky. Wolvie would slip and accidently stab himself through his head.
Sinister--By not being able to die himself, he'd eventually wear Wolvie down. Then uh...do something.
Goblyn Queen--See any of the telepaths.
Cable--The man won't die! He'd fill Wolvie full of lead. That or uh...use his telepathic and/or telekinetic powers to defeat him. Cable's easily got this one.
Domino--See Longshot.
Forge--I'm sure he has some sort of weapon that would completely decimate the Canadian.
Multiple Man--Too many of them for Wolvie to handle. The real Jaime could just sit back and watch as his duplicates tear Wolvie apart.
Deadpool--Yea, I think he can do it.
Husk--Brute strength.
Chamber--Just plain blow him up with his energy.
X-man--Need I say more?
Onslaught--Seriously.

I would have to disagree with many on that list for several reasons

1) wolverine has been blown apart down to his skeleton by a juiced up Nitro before(happened in civil war) he still came back
2)in ultimate hulk vs wolverine. hulk ripped him in half and he somehow survived
3)he has fought many of the people on that list and always come out on top, sasquatch, hulk, magneto, sinister, deadpool
4)his training and experience is a massive difference maker

The Xavier protocols say a clean decapitation will do it - even with the way they've inflated his healing factor beyond recognition due to his popularity, he can't come back from everything.

Ultimate doesn't mean squat tbf.

When has he beat Magneto? Be very surprised (and disappointed) if that's from credible source material. As for Hulk, see World War Hulk. He's a nuisance to him, nothing more. The others are closer to being on his level. Sinister is a weird one - they change his power/level too often.

aye Kitty's was a secondary character in a (poor) movie that on release of DOFP will have been 8 years ago while Bishop is a complete unknown to anyone who didn't watch the 90's cartoon (adored it) or read the comics. Compare to Wolverine who is Wolverine. Also in the comics it was mind time travel iirc to possess her younger self and well she wasn't around for the era they're aiming for in this movies time travel while Wolverine was so if they use the same method then it makes perfect sense.

The Xavier protocols say a clean decapitation will do it - even with the way they've inflated his healing factor beyond recognition due to his popularity, he can't come back from everything.

Ultimate doesn't mean squat tbf.

When has he beat Magneto? Be very surprised (and disappointed) if that's from credible source material. As for Hulk, see World War Hulk. He's a nuisance to him, nothing more. The others are closer to being on his level. Sinister is a weird one - they change his power/level too often.

apparently back in the fatal attractions story line the above happened.
which is what led magneto to rip the adimantium off wolverines skeleton and out through his pores

which in turn gave rise to the more feral bone clawed wolverine

They weren't in a fight when that happened though so not sure what relevance it has. Magneto was just pontificating/lecturing to the other X-Men wasn't he?!

He then proceeded to rip out his adamantium skeleton as you say :lol: Even bone-claw Wolverine would be useless though. He couldn't get near Magneto and Magneto could beat him in any number of ways. It's a ridiculous mismatch - one of the most powerful mutants ever vs someone who couldn't beat Spiderman.

Don't get me wrong, Wolverine is a great character - in terms of entertainment - but he can't live in Magneto's league whatsoever. It's insane.

Thing is Wolverine minus the adamantium is probably overall tougher than with it, lighter, faster, healing factor no longer half tied up dealing with the adamantium poisoning and magneto no longer tosses him around as he feels like it and actually has to work for his victory.

bought the full knightfall series from comixology - talk about f***ing epic man, 600 pages is decent for a book and there are 3 volumes each of 600 pages or more

the first volume is f***ing amazing, breaking the bat, second one i have a feeling is going to be a bit meh before ending well with the last one

amazing s*** though

Second one is filler-tastic, not sure if Bruce Wayne is in it at all! Working through the third volume now...

loved this whole trilogy, took me absolutely ages to read it and all, well worth the money

i really liked the middle one, knightquest...thought valley going mental was totally class, 3rd ended up as a let down the way the "confrontation" ended

Guardians looks like it could be that change of pace. It'll be interesting to see how thing develop. I enjoyed the last three Marvel films. There's nothing to them really but they're excellent popcorn flicks. I'm not looking forward to Cap at all (Days of Future Past looks far better IMO). The trailer for Guardians didn't blow me away like it did the rest of the internet but it does looks to be something different. Personally I think we'll get to Avengers 3 and then they'll use the Infinity Gauntlet in such a way that they can reboot the franchise. At which point I'll probably be done.

Loki wanted to rule the world, Ultron will probably do something similar... I guess the change of pace is that Thanos will want to destroy the Universe? :lol:

It's Stan Lee's last ever European appearance apparently.

Ian McPalpatine has only done a handful of conventions before so he's autograph is pretty rare.

The reason they charge so much is to limit the crowds somewhat. If you were charging a fiver for their autographs the queue would be a mile long and you'd have people wanting multiple items signed. This way it thins down the queue to those who really want it.

Well obviously there's enough of people who think the price is fair since the lines for those kind of people tend to be a mile long.

Never seen them charge to have a photo taken mind. It's always been a fee for the autograph (one price if you supply your own item and then slightly more expensive for them to supply a professional photo)  and they let you take a photo with them for free. I guess it depends on the person.

They aren't there but I recommend:

 Three by Kieron Gillen published by Image. It's a nice little story which attempts to remain historically accurate. Three Helots go on the run and three hundred Spartans are sent out to capture them. It's very good. It's kind of a reaction to the portrayal of Spartans by Frank Miller.

Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction also published by Image. Guy and a girl stop time when they orgasm so they decide to use this power to rob banks! Very funny, and witty, and clever. Had me in stitches in several spots.

I read the trade for Sex Criminals and got through it very quickly. I'd say it's pretty standard in terms of events for the first 5 issues of a brand new comic. Set up the two mains quite nicely, established how the power works, gave them motivations and introduced the conflict at the end. Left me wanting more. I just loved the two characters so much. Maybe the same pacing wouldn't hold up for a long period of time but I can't fault what I read in the trade.

Manu Bennett's Deathstroke is actually the definitive version of the character now that DC has made him a complete retard in the comic books.

Just wait, the first half of the first season is considered the worst, the back end of the first season it starts to become A decent show. Season two has taken it to a whole new level though. Currently we are on spree of episodes where each episode is class, with each episode getting rated 9/10 and the odd 10/10 for most episodes.

I started watching it when it first aired on sky one and then gave up cause i was sick of my lass twisting in my ear about a show full of impossibly pretty people and how lame the whole thing was.
but have recently gone back to it and am watching them on my phone so she can get ta f***

The story with the island is what makes is so good in the latter half of the first season as well. Season 2 takes it to a different level. If you don't enjoy season 2 it's not for you.

First half of first season is terribad. I gave up following the show live after the first few episodes as well. The last part is decent.

The show does a 180 degree turn starting in season 2 and really starts embracing it's superhero elements. That's when it starts being amazing.

Fully agree with this. They really need to stop doing that.

Might help if Starling is completely destroyed in the Finale and the move a beat down and broken Ollie to Seattle like they did in the comics. Here's hoping.

I like Comic book stuff, and even i think its becoming overkill.

Currently you have:
Agents of Shield
Arrow
Flash
Gotham
Agent Carter
Constantine

In a couple of years you will also have:
Daredevil
Jessica Jones
Iron Fist
Luke Cage

And thats just off the top of my head :lol:

It's not overkill as long as the quality is good. I'm confident of the Marvel/Netflix stuff, and to a certain extent the Agent Carter show. Cautiously optimistic about Flash, but that depends on how well or badly the CGI is done. Gotham looks s***.

Gotham could have been really good without the baby villains. A Gotham procedural with the city on a descent into hell.

If they'd just focus on one guy, like The Penguin who's older than Batman and thusly could've feasibly been active when he was still a kid.

I wouldn't be quite so sure. The tragedy of losing his mother at a young age is a central part of the Barry Allen character so I highly doubt they allow him to get her out of it.

Most likely it's Professor Zoom gone back in time to kill young Barry, and Barry will have to make the agonizing choice between saving his own young self and saving his mom.

Man, this is the perfect comic-book show. I mean, there's still some unbearable stuff (mostly all the soap opera part of it), but I just love all the villains and heroes they bring out every week. The Suicide Squad! :smitten:

Wrestlemania is different for a start, and Kaiz is a massive GOT fan. He rewatches those episodes, I'm sure of it. He also basically knows what is going to happen since he has read the books.

The Big Bang Theory is worse than Arrow.  Is it just a competition between the two?  I might need to change sides.

I'm already happy enough at the posters who like it and those who don't, aside from Beren. Yanks who judge a show based on the network, one of which doesn't watch shows properly and has only seen 15 minutes of Arrow out of context, plus Beren. I can live with that.

I'm British, have no idea what network it's on, and watched an entire episode!  I wish I'd only watched 15 minutes, that would have been more than enough.

I think the first season is pretty bad until the very end (the island bits are pretty interesting throughout, however), but I was convinced to stay put since so many people were raving about the second season. I don't regret it.

A large part of the enjoyment is all the comic book characters and storylines they weave throughout the second season, so you sorta have to at least have an interest in comic books imho - but it really is the most successful effort to bring comic book stories to a live action series. It's just so much richer, writing is more solid and the constellation of characters they build - all with their stories - is very engaging. Plus I think they got a budget bump since production values are better too.

The main chicks are a bit annoying though - Canary at least kicks some arse and has an engaging backstory but Laurel Lance and Oliver's sis are still the weakest parts of the show.

Never really thought about it, it think he means you can fight in a way which isn't just Kung fu, and that there are many different styles. As most of the fight scenes in the show are Kung fu'y.

On a side note, what is the correct way to right Kung fu'y. :lol:

Can see why people love it and partly why others hate it as theres a lot of stupid in it.

Actually hated myself for watching the final few episodes after rightly giving up after 3.

They are both produced by WB though - they own DC Comics after all - so they might want not to have competing depictions of the same character at once. Anyway, it's just speculation from my part.

I agree though, that if they end up making Gotham into Smallville with Bats, it will probably be awful.

It's not that they're bad bad. It's that their general target audience are around 14 years old and love Bieber/One Direction or women in their early thirties wanting a better life and reminiscing about how hot men were when they were younger and semi-attractive.

seems to have stayed pretty close to the comic and even gives hints or rather flat out says that we can expect to see professor zoom/ reverse flash at some point which is good

See I think a Super friends/Suicide squad type comic about rolf, jimmy and gary would genius, get rob liefeld to draw it so rolf is all boomaranged and pouched up to hell jimmy has pouches and ammo bands all over and gary has a glitter ball on a chain and ammo pouches round his leg.

they could be secretly contracted by the torries to go out and hunt down other evil TV peado's and internet nasties. they could have an arch nemesis called "The Granny f***er"

So dumb I hope it's true

It has been rumored that on the upcoming movie, instead of playing Gwen Stacy, Stone will take and play the character of Mary Jane Watson - Peter's now wife and her previous character's rival.
 
The switch surely would be confusing as it seems as if this is the first time in film history where in the same movie franchise, one actress gets to play two different roles. If the rumors are true about Stone's character switch, the mind-boggling but intriguing part is how the story plot will flow to make the character shift fit in.
 
Another concern will revolve around Stone – will she be able to create an effective and distinctive distinction between the two characters?

I've seen all the Marvel films now.  I think their biggest problem is they've only had one decent baddie between them.  The Batman films put them to shame in that regard.  Do Marvel not have many interesting villains, or are they just making them boring and one-dimensional for the cinema?

Loki was the only good one.  Maybe that's why they keep reusing him.  Ronan, that Nazi with the red head, Malekith and Jeff Bridges were all a bit boring and one-dimensional.

I know what you mean, Loki is the only real interesting villain, and that's because they developed the character more, as they had a plan with the character, it also helps Tom Hiddleston is a very good actor. But it feels like every other bad guy is there to feel that slot from film to film, so the focus is on the hero rather then the villain. I don't think the bad guy's a particularly bad, they are just not as flushed out as they could be, and I still have enjoyed every single marvel film, and I would say the villain thing is my only gripe with the Marvel films to date.

That is not true, off the top of my head, the girl that played Octopussy in the Bond film also played another, unrelated, Bond girl in The Man with a Golden Gun. Sure there might be other examples out there. And that's not even getting to people like Mike Myers playing a gazillion different characters throughout the Austin Powers series.

This is an intriguing idea though, if Stone can pull it off. It can be easily constructed as Peter being attracted to Mary Jane because it reminds him of Gwen, and all the f***ed up relationship that would follow.

All the great Marvel villains I can think of, weren't in Marvel films. Magneto is surely one of the greatest superhero film villains; Doc Ock was very good in Spider-Man 2. Lots of the other minor villains in the X-Men films, imho, were interesting and well done.

Doctor Doom has great potential, too, but he was wasted in the F4 films, and I don't think Marvel has the rights to use him.

afaik Marvel never really had a dark phase that fleshed out their villains like DC seemed to have. The best DC villains come from when Batman was f***ing with people that weren't afraid to kill.

this is not to say DC is any better at that, they've just made less films and i've probably read less comics
