Post Marvel/DC/Comic Book Movie Discussion
What is everyone's general perception of these films? Do you have a preference for a brand? Are you looking for lighter fare (Marvel, imo), or darker films (DC, also imo)?

Have the recent X-Men movies figured out a proper balance between the two mediums? Because DC tried to make a "Marvel"-like movie in Green Lantern and it didn't turn out well and still ended up being pretty dark. Captain America 2 was as "dark" as Marvel has gone, but still rather light.

Do you prefer direct adaptations, like Watchmen? Or new takes on characters?

Can we have it both ways?!

Thanks for the combined list. Ive been looking for one.

I like there to be a mix of both Marvel and DC, light and dark tones. They compliment each other.

I prefer Marvel overall - especially as they have a cohesive CU in place. Though that excludes the TDK trilogy which as brilliant.

The way the schedule is, there's a good chance that there's at least one DC/Marvel film in the top 10 every weekend from end of March to end of August. That's 5 months.

The entire thing though is obviously contingent upon Batman/Superman hitting with audiences. Sony has proven that you don't need positive WOM to make franchises and that's true. The Sony flicks will make enough money WW to justify their existence. But no one's ever going to think any one of Sonys films will be a threat to MCU.

WB has one-shot with Batman/Superman. They can't fuck it up. If this all works, then the entire game is changed again. This may be in fact the biggest chapter in DC/Marvel rivalry.

I hope they start bombing so the retarded sitting on dates gets shafted up the ass.

Also we get to have summers and winters now filled with just comic book movies. Great for cinema.

I want more Kick Ass, Watchmen, Wanted kind of stuff not pandering Marvel movies and fuck off DC you're way too late.

I'm not up on my comic book characters or my movies starring basketball players...

So all this time I thought Shaq played Shazam in the 90s.

The Female Spiderverse film is kinda strange. Surely the only female character they can adapt as a lead character in a stand-alone film would be Black Cat, right?

They could have used her appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to build up to her own film, but they certainly screwed up there. I think she has one, maybe two, lines in the film and is only addressed as many times if I recall.

I don't think Sony knows what they're doing. So... who knows.

Sony are shit. I wish Marvel were able to somehow take back control of Spidey. Sony will keep cranking out crap for ever just not to lose the rights. I'd rather Marvel be able to incorporate Spidey back into the MCU and then make some individual Spidey/Sinister Six films.

So, Shazam will NOT be part of the interconnected DC/WB-movie universe...

wow. i mean, part of me likes that WB is willing to make films like Sandman, Shazam, and potentially Justice League Dark and not force a connection to a bigger universe. Marvel has shown that forcing a giant cinematic universe has its issues. At the same time, Marvel has shown that forcing a giant cinematic universe has major commercial benefits.

its still early though. Maybe WB forces it to be connected.

What I am wondering...has there EVER been a major superhero movie for which the villain actor was announced BEFORE the hero actor?

Probably only if the movie is about a villain. I cannot think of one. Maybe X-Men..

do Sony have the rights to Jessica Jones/Spider Woman? She would be the only other possibility.

Apparently no one knows who owns the character film rights. All the sources I skimmed all agreed she falls into a grey area. Most think her story belongs in the Marvel/Avengers universe, though.

I don't think this will end up being the case, because Black Adam can be a pretty good Superman villain. But I would suppose that would come later if this is well received.
