  • Am I the only one who is very unimpressed with what Marvel movies are being scheduled for 2024? What is going on exactly?

    We can start with last year's Marvels. I didn't hear anything very positive about that movie. I'm sure I'll watch it eventually to form my own opinion about it, but I'm not expecting very much.

    Coming soon is Madame Web, Kraven the Hunter and a third Venom. None of those look like "must see" movies in my humble opinion. If they are anything like Morbius, they will lose a tonne of money. There is a Deadpool 3 scheduled for a Summer release. The last two have been solid, so I'm expecting good things from that one.

    I have seen TV commercials for the new Echo TV show on Disney+. Hard to say what that show is going to be like. Fingers crossed. The Daredevil: Born Again series has apparently hit a few snags in the last year. Mostly due to the writer's strike. And don't get me started on the Blade movie slated for a 2025 release. There have been oodles or re-writes and other problems. And they haven't even started filming it yet! I think fingers crossed might not be near strong enough to save that project.

    I also saw a commercial of a Jonathan Majors interview on ABC. Wasn't he found guilty of abusing his girlfriend recently? Um, yes he was and attempting a "heartfelt" interview when he's obviously not a very nice man might not help his image out any. There's already a bunch of backlash and the interview isn't even out yet.

    Marvel, what are you doing? Please stop the madness and just entertain us with good movies and TV shows (um, and comic books too?). I know you're trying to appeal to everyone, but that never works out all that well. Do what you do best: fun shows with action and comedy. How hard can that be?

  • Disney/Marvel is trying to appeal to people that don't give a S#!T about the characters or the history and for the most part won't go and see the movie.
    But that's what we get in this new world, changes for the sake of change.
    As for the people that loved the characters the way they were created, Disney/Marvel don't care about them and the only way the diehards can fight back is don't waste your money on those projects.
    When they actually do a movie right they will find out what the real fans want because it will do well.

  • Good topic, Bruce, I'd like to weigh in. You are not wrong about 2024 not shaping up to be a stellar year for the MCU regarding films or tv shows. You ask what is going on. I suspect the answer is primarily the writers and actors strikes of last year prevented Marvel from having the time they needed to write/film the shows in time for this years schedule.

    Regarding Marvels I did see it in the theatre, and despite "popular opinion" it was actually quite good imo. Not near another Infinity War or Winter Soldier or other top tier MCU flick, but not the worse by any means either. I have never paid much (if any) attention to what the critics say as often disagree with their thoughts, and to me this film fits that bill. I would love to hear from others who have seen the film and disagree with me, as to why you didn't like it.

    I don't honestly pay much attention to the Sony films (aside from the earlier Maguire/Garfield Spider-Man ones). The first two Venom's were tolerable, I guess, and I have not seen anything else worth watching and have no expectations for anything they have done, but these are not MCU films, thus no more significant than DCEU movies to me.

    I did like the Deadpools, and have a lot of hope for this one.

    I don't binge watch shows. I have seen the first two episodes of Echo and they were solid. Three more to go, however, before I can pass judgement on that series. No spoilers in your replies, please!

    Regarding future projects I never get worried about how things are looking until they put the finished project out for us to see. If they are having issues they have time to fix them, and if they don't that is all on them.

    I'm pretty sure Marvel/Disney has fired Jonathan Majors so it doesn't matter what interviews he does anywhere, I don't think. That is another factor, I believe, in slowing the MCU plans, as they were headed towards Kang being the next "Thanos" type threat, but now either need to recast, change villains or ?????? The House of Mouse is also dealing with the slowdown in the industry caused by Covid-19, and is now only starting to get back to normal.

    I will differ with you and Canuck about Marvel appealing to everyone and to people who don't care about them. To me it is not about that, it is about the corporation trying to make as much money as possible, and doing it by trying to make a bigger tent to fit more people in. Now this can only work if they tell great stories with creative writers, talented actors, brilliant directors and so on, but their track record on doing this is not bad imo. I for one cannot name another film franchise that has achieved even half of what the MCU has, and that is not even bringing their shows into the discussion, most of which have been great, with one notable exception.

    I agree with you both, however, about doing shows right, with fun, action and comedy. I would also add a key element which to me has always been Marvel's secret ingredient, going back to the comics in the 1960's. That element is the fact that all the characters share the same universe, and can and do play in each other's sandboxes. Marvel has so many great characters and I believe that almost any of them can be portrayed successfully in MCU films and shows. I like most of them and I have no problem with any of them being used in a Marvel project at any time. Yes, it's a business, but what a fun and enjoyable business it is for us to experience!

    Here's to 2025, 2026 and many more years after that of great Marvel projects!!!

  • I'm not a Deadpool fan but the fact that Wolverine is appearing in the 3rd film will be enough reason for me to want to see it. But from what I know so far, it's going to be another multiverse plot, of which Marvel has been doing a lot of lately.

    Fantastic Four is scheduled for 2025. I want to hope that it will capture some of the Stan Lee/Jack Kirby spirit, but that's probably wishful thinking.

  • Dr Doom will probably replace Kang; but they've been kind of failing on him for awhile.
    and a married couple (like Mr & Mrs Fantastic)isn't sufficiently empowering
    so I don't know.
    maybe they can surprise us with a bunch of X-men stuff.
    fans were very pleased with First Class and the cast they built up

  • Not sure why they won’t stick with Kang. Just replace the actor and move on. Heck have him wear his helmet/mask for the next movie and in a couple of movies people will forget who was the original actor. Seems silly to rethink the whole direction because you had to drop one actor.

  • I think they shouldn't stop the Kang storyline. He's a big character in the comics. I mean they replaced whoever the made the first appearances of Thanos and Hulk was replaced as well.
    Granted this is further along but it can still be done, most rational ppl would understand why.

    Marvel movies have lost some of it's luster for sure. I don't know if the casting is an issue (I don't think it is) or it's the stories they choose to tell or if it's the writing or directing but it's a lot less compelling.

    Like actions movies, after you see so many, you can tell the difference between a great one and an okay one.

    I don't think they're building the storyline towards something very well. Either do it or let the movies stand alone on their own without shoe horning in a back story.

    I did not see The Marvels but will for sure watch it when it streams.

  • Corporations are in it to make money, so I agree that they are building a bigger tent for that purpose. They are also looking generationally at fandom, I imagine, having now placed so many of the heroes of the 60s/70s/80s into the mix, they are looking at heroes from the 80s/90s/00s to attract those audiences that remember those years with nostalgia.

    We enjoyed the Marvels quite a bit here at home. We didn't watch all of the Ms. Marvel series but enough to get all the family dynamics. The epilogue was a treat all by itself. Brie Larson was so much more fun (because she is great - check out Lessons in Chemistry on Apple) in this one.

    We're dropping Disney+ soon (April, I believe) as we stopped watching all the Star Wars series and Secret Invasion was barely watchable, too.

  • As I kind of predicted, Marvel is not off to a very good start this year when it comes to TV shows and movies. The Marvels was not excellent. Madame Web was universally hated all around the planet. Echo did a little better, but from what I've seen and heard it is pretty boring.

    Kraven and a third Venom movie is not going to save them either. Is it possible that Marvel (and DC too) have flooded the market with too much super-hero programming? I'm sure we here on CBR probably love to hear and eventually see all the new Marvel stuff. I gobble up most of it and have been quite impressed in the last decade with the job Marvel has been able to pull off.

    I think there is two main problems these days:

    1) It really sucks when every single project requires you to watch them all. I hadn't seen Ms. Marvel on Disney+, so I was kind of shocked when I saw her appearance in last year's The Marvels because I assumed her super-powers were much like that in the comic book (Um, like Mr. Fantastic?). They weren't. You should be able to watch a new movie or TV show and not have to do homework or watch the past three movies to be able to make any sense of it. It's not the same as the comic books, where many collector loves the continuity between titles since we were probably reading them all anyway.

    2) Am I the only one who is very, very tired of the Multiverse? I don't mind a "what if" tale here and there, but it seems half the movies and TV series are using the multiverse as a main point in their projects. DC is guilty of it too. The best part of the recent Flash movie is Batman (played by the original Michael Keaton). That seems very odd to my brain. Can't we have a regular timeline movie and not deal with all these Earth 2's? When I saw the second Doctor Strange movie I was a little disappointed in their multiverse take. Sure, it's great to see Mr. Fantastic and the Peggy Carter Captain America, but you knew for a fact that they weren't going to make it out alive. In the multiverse anything can happen, right? That usually means killing a character you normally wouldn't dream of.

    Can Marvel please smarten up? We are going from a new super-hero movie and TV show every few months to probably one a year if things aren't done better.

  • I absolutely LOVE X-Men '97... it is Wonderful lol... Well written (at least 3 episodes in), they FINALLY made Cyclops Cool lol using his powers in new awesome ways, id give the animation 4.5 thumbs up outta 5 (they did a great job on the animation, but you can tell something is a little off - aka the rear end thing, didnt care cause i thought it wouldnt be noticeable but it kinda of is noticeable), love the original voice actors, tho you can tell the Wolverine voice actor has definately aged lol, finally a sweet X-Men villain that is hard to use incorrectly lol...

    Everything else I'm really not overly critical of, not everything should be expected to be the $200,000,000 production Epic... small stories, interesting pieces of different styles, genres and universe.... i think if everyone stopped being so overly critical of the stuff, just turned off your brains and approached it as just entertainment they may enjoy things more... we watch movies for escapism, everything being different every movie is great for that... i do think they should dial things back a bit aka Quality over Quantity... but keep bringing the different stuff.

    I think people forget how things used to be, when the only companies doing comic book movies were Sony & Warner Bros., Batman & Robin anyone? Elektra? Id rather have comic book heroes and villains have new movies and shows, instead of only a couple characters...and even if they are not awesome, just say eh and move on. That's what we used to do lol... and the funny thing, is these movies become cult classics eventually lol... granted not all, but alot of HORRIBLE movies have...

  • And now this!! ...why?
    The Fantastic Four: Julia Garner joins Marvel movie as Silver Surfer

    https://m.imdb.com/news/ni64518877/?ref_=nm_nwr_1

    Guess there are not enough female Marvel characters for them to use so you may as well gender swap one of the most iconic characters Marvel has. Confused Shocked
    What would Kirby and Lee think of this? Nothing against Julia Garner, she was great in Ozark but I have a hard time thinking this is going to go over well with the true fans.

  • I don't have too many problems with the Marvel Cinematic Universe adding some colour to their characters. This is the 21st century and most of the characters we all love and follow were invented 50+ years ago when Marvel didn't have very many non-white writers or artists. Same goes with the female super-heroes. ALL of them were drawn very sexily because, let's face it, the vast majority of their readers were teen boys and all the artists were male.

    That had obviously changed over time and we are better off for it. When it comes to gender swaps, that becomes a little more confusing to us oldies. I don't care if you want to make a famous Marvel character any colour under the rainbow or even switch genders. If the story is awesome and makes sense, go for it. If you're doing it to just do it, you'll be making a mistake and end up upsetting a lot of Marvel fans.

    I was just telling a friend of mine that Marvel has not been doing so swell in the TV shows and movie making job recently and he agreed. He insisted that it's because they are trying to be "woke." I totally disagreed. Um, maybe I might have to backtrack a bit on that comment after reading Canuck's post on the FF movie.

  • thats 100% why, trying to be inclusive for everyone and every group, their disney classic princess collection of movies proves that, from waaay back in the 50s/60s til now, but i do disagree with one point in your msg... TV shows, i feel these have been (for the most part) great... Manwolf (halloween special), Loki, Wanda Vision, Hawkeye, What If, X-men 97.... these have been stellar... she hulk and moon knight were ok, not great, but still entertaining lol. Since these shows are stuck in between movies, these are not meant to be full length stories, just momentary blips in their lives, introductions... Plus small details ALWAYS show up later... love looking for the eggs lol... honestly the only show i think i didnt like was secret invasion, but it was still entertaining... and fyi the rewatchability of these shows is awesome...

    i mean they even ended loki by way of a twist on greek mythology... genius lol the whole tree thing... granted in mythology he was i think bound by his own entrails, and i think it was a snake or some creature was pouring venom on him or in his face, cant remember exactly now, but he ended up just becoming a tree in the show... loved it... lol
