    I wonder if I'm the only one who watched GET BACK, in all three parts. Being a Beatles fan from the age of 5, this is for me. But maybe not for all the Marvel loving comic book movie fans on here....

    My theory is that it's about the I.P. There are only so many well-known properties and at least half of those are the villains. To exploit the brand, they use the...
