It's all very complex because Marvel the comic company sold the rights to a lot of it's characters to a bunch of studios back in the 90s when it was nearly bankrupt. Now they are trying to get them all back.
The Tom Holland Spiderman movies are the current exception because they have been essentially "loaned" to Disney to make the team up movies (for a chunk of the profits of course) like Avengers. The solo Spiderman movies though (No way home) are still produced by Sony.
the rights to Hulk (as a standalone film only) are actually owned by Universal, which is why you will never see a Mark Ruffalo standalone Hulk movie.
Fox did own Deadpool and the Xmen, but Disney bought Fox, so now they own those rights again.
Marvel Studios made a deal with Universal to let Marvel use Hulk in MS-produced movies, while Universal retained the distribution rights to any solo films. Which is why since 2008 Hulk has only been in Avengers or Thor movies. Kind of sneaky on Marvel's part but worked out for them.
Zero desire to see any others. I'm not a comic book person to begin with. But all I need is to get a whiff of a movie that eschews subtlety and nuance and that is so afraid the audience might not pick up on certain details that they simplistically spell everything out, and I'm looking for the remote. I certainly wouldn't spend $20 and 2 hours in a theater to see it.
I guess my ability to suspend disbelief for these types of movies just isn't there. As an older friend of mine used to say, "Everybody's entitled to their own stupid opinion." And that's mine. :-P
That being said, I still enjoy watching these movies, and there are definitely some that stand out in my mind. The "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies are hilarious and have a great soundtrack. "Ant Man" is also pretty funny and I really love how Scott Lang is the relatable, everyman hero in the franchise. "The Winter Soldier" and "Civil War" both had some interesting political/societal implications, "Black Panther" was all around a great movie, and, as mentioned above, "Thor: Ragnarok" was pretty witty and felt very different from the other movies.
Having said that, a coworker told me how excited he was to see Black Panther the day it was released, and I responded that I have always wished I knew a little more about Huey Newton. So...
It's not only good for us, it's good for your health.
You mocked them for expressing their opinion, and then promptly offered your own about their post. That makes you look hypocritical, which is why I called it out.
They only show spider-man
^ the number of MCU films each year since 2008. Pretty soon there will be one coming out every month and updates for this will get harder and harder to keep up with. :)
No Way Home comes out.
No spiderman done by Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield that does not have Tom Holland in it is MCU.
I didn't like Captain Marvel... it was badly written, the lead was terrible in it, the plot made no sense, just a very very mediocre movie. And I *do* understand the Brie Larson hate if you have seen some of her social media posts you might understand where it comes from. But as for the movie itself being "woke"... not really. There were 3 or 4 obnoxious throwaway lines in it that were obviously intended to get applause from the angry feminists in the crowd, and at the end when they started playing that No Doubt song that was a bit on the nose, but other than that it was not a political or agenda-driven movie, really. The marketing for it was. And the social media accounts of some people who worked on the movie including Larson's. but the movie wasn't like that; that's not the reason it was bad.
Although I think I'm going to adopt "Sliderman" and write a story that some day may start its own cinematic universe of superheroes!
The Sony Spider-verse movies like Venom and Morbius exist in some weird MCU-adjacent grey area.
Increasingly, given how Marvel seems to be handling the concept of the multiverse, it could be that ALL of these movies will be treated as MCU-adjacent. Not exactly in the MCU, but still in a way canon just in different parallel universes.
That could theoretically apply to Howard the Duck, too.
Future Disney + shows include What If?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel (which will follow Kamala Khan), Moon Knight, She-Hulk, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, and possibly others. Not sure if Secret Invasion, Ironheart, Armor Wars and that Wakanda series are definitely happening or not.
After San Diego Comic Con we now have a bunch of new movies confirmed, including all Phase 5 films plus 3 from Phase 6
IMO it would make more sense to update this quiz at the end of every year rather than at the beginning. Though maybe that's to avoid complaints from nerds coming here and demanding updates upon each new film's release...
