    Glad Spiegelmen put Marvel on blast for this. This was lame of them.

    Most films tend to start from a blank slate. It's not that big a deal, you just give her someone else's villain if that's a problem.
  4. Aside from quibbles with a few of your specific...

    Aside from quibbles with a few of your specific examples, that's debatable. Like I just said, two of the all-time most acclaimed ones, Spider-Man 2 and The Dark Knight, aren't based on any specific...

    Yep. David Walker said at a con he had a problem with it, so he presumably brought it back when he had Cyborg regenerate his body during his run.



    Indeed. I wonder how closely the Black Adam...

    In the grand scheme of things, very few superhero movies are heavily based on any one specific storyline. Even the really great ones like The Dark Knight and Spider-Man 2 tend to combine a lot of...

    Holt of course. I didn't even know there was a Golden Age Mr. Terrific until a few years later.

    I think the popularity of a character definitely no longer means much in the realm of cinema, but I also think Marvel is a company that definitely has a lot more leeway in that regard than anyone...

    I'll absolutely take an "artsy" Phoenix Joker movie over a Leto Joker vehicle, so I'm good there.

    I already said that I viewed Doom Patrol as an exception and that they did a much better take on Cyborg than the movies or what the comics have been doing with him.

    I was referring to the New 52 take the movies and other media have adapted. Trust me, I would've much preferred if they went with stuff from the Walker run instead.

    It's silly and I wouldn't have even brought it up otherwise, but like I said, it's a million little things piling up that made the character an ill-fitting choice for the role DC and WB were trying...
  13. Not to discount that, but it was something people...

    Not to discount that, but it was something people were already heavily speculating because A) Fu Manchu (Shang-Chi's usual nemesis) was off-limits due to rights issues and B) Kevin Feige did a Reddit...

    It's from wevegotthis covered, who as discussed, are not a reliable site.
  15. I really don't think so. The prospect of Wonder...

    I really don't think so. The prospect of Wonder Woman getting her own movie would've brought attention anyway, and the insanely strong legs the movie had thanks to positive word of mouth likely...

    Despite the popularity of Burton's Batman, people still gave the Nolan movies a chance and heartily embraced them. Hell, Batman v. Superman having a massive mega opening weekend before cratering due...

    Okay, that got me.

    A bunch of people already thought the dude's name was Shazam, which was part of the justification for the name change. Prior to this movie, I don't think "Captain Marvel" was a name that held much...

    Curiously they didn't announce anything at Comic-Con. Maybe there'll be something on Disney +.

    I never said they did anything wrong, nor did I "blame" the writers. I just said it was a thing that obviously happened (which, as I cited, was not an uncommon observation at all), which is what I've...

    Yes, it does. That's literally the entire point of making a substitute. A property Pelrmutter wanted to use was off-limits, so something else was pushed in its stead with the similarities greatly...

    Hopefully they don't waste Ms. Marvel on this.

    None of which had anything to do with the discussion because they weren't in the MCU. I don't know how many times I have to reiterate that.

    They did. But again, we're just talking in circles at this point. Sorry, I'm not gonna be convinced on this.

    Right. Especially when Marvel intentionally invited that comparison by strengthening those similarities. That's the point of substitution.
