So between right now and 2020 there are a billion movies scheduled to come out based on Marvel and DC properties.
I decided to do some brain thinking and drop a few thoughts on each movie listed for release.
August 7, 2015 – Fantastic Four
I want them to pull it off. There is a lot of really cool stuff that can be done if they do. Dr. Doom is the greatest villain in Marvel comics.
If it fails again, I can see Fox defaulting it back to Marvel which is what I want so I can get that much closer to one of those comic posters with every character on them but in a movie. But I want it to be successful, and I think it needs to be. Quality of comic book movies is important so that the bubble doesn’t burst and oversaturation isn’t an issue.
February 12, 2016 – Deadpool
I hope people expect this movie to be what it is. I think a lot of people aren’t properly familiar with Deadpool and might expect something else. They need to carefully walk the appropriate line between breaking the 4th wall, humour and shocking violence so that they’ll have something.
March 25, 2016 – Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
I’ve pulled a 180 on this movie. I didn’t have too much faith a year ago, but the trailer has me excited. I feel like I have a much better idea of the tone and direction and I’m on board. Now, whether the film hits all the right notes is another story. But DC seems totally committed to their universe, that’s good.
May 6, 2016 – Captain America: Civil War
I’m not a huge fan of the Civil War in the comics. But from what I can piece together at the end of Ant-Man and then filled with my own fan theory, I might actually dig this.
I also can’t wait to see all the heroes and heroines on screen. Maybe not together, maybe not all at once, but just existing and crossing paths. Iron Man, Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Black Widow, Falcon, Vision, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Hulk, Red-Hulk, Spiderman, Black Panther, War Machine, Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch, Crossbones, Baron Zemo, etc. etc.
One thing I am curious about, is how the movie is going to explain normal people like Hawkeye, Widow, Falcon, and even Ant-Man, War Machine and Iron Man into “registering” considering they are just highly skilled people with suits.
