    Agreed.

    With Civil War, it was fine, that wasn't Parker's movie and the whole Uncle Ben/origin stuff wasn't necessary there.

    But in Parker's own films? Ben's death should be explored in at...

    Wasn't enough of a Millar fan to check out the comic, but I just binged the show over the last couple days since I had nothing else to watch.

    I thought it was alright. Somewhere between the CW...

    I think the MCU is making great strides right now to correct a problem they shouldn't have had in the first place.

    Ike Perlmutter was a huge barrier to proper representation in the MCU but he's...

    I don't think we're getting a second trilogy at all. Far as I know, Holland isn't contracted for one, and the Disney-Sony deal expires then too. Sony already tried to get out of this once, I don't...

    Lower power levels don't make for better stories. They're just easier for writers without big imaginations to handle. And who wants that kind of writer on Clark?

    I can point to dozens of awful...

    Either Berry or a porn star. I hear Land used porn stars for some of his art, though I might be wrong on that. But his Monica did have a strong Halle Berry vibe and we know he used/copied photos for...

    Regarding the films, I'm pretty happy with how Monica is shaping up. I like the actress and the direction they're taking the character, I like that we've got another high-powered female in the MCU....

    I fully expect a mixed roster. It doesn't matter who was on what team in the comics. Cap, Widow, and Clint weren't founding Avengers in the comics but are in the MCU, and Hank and Jan were nowhere to...

    Dude you're not really a fan of Clark anyway, outside of the early Golden Age stuff (which y'all know I adore too so I'm with you on that!) so it's not surprising you wouldn't look at the evil...

    I think from a narrative standpoint, yeah Kamala will end up filling those "awkward/nerd/Every-teen" shoes once Holland's contract is finished. And it's a great choice, Kamala is a fantastic...

    Well, it's not every few years. The last time copyright law was extended was 1998.

    Odds are Disney and other giant corporations will successfully lobby for another extension. However, there's the...

    Agreed. I mean Atomicskull isn't wrong; Crush was a great chance to elevate and develop Lobo's character.

    But do we really *want* that? Do we really want Lobo to be more than the crazy,...

    I'd be cool with Teddy showing up in Secret Invasion.



    As I recall Holland has a solo film left on his contract, and a couple team-up films. I can see Marvel using one of those final team-ups...

    I think what makes "evil Superman" such a popular and common troupe is that it sells itself.

    Everyone on earth knows who Superman is and what he's about. They know he's a unstoppable force and...

    Oh for sure. Anything that can hurt Clark should pretty much vaporize everything around him. And someone like Dinah, if she's capable of hurting Clark with her scream, would level entire...

    Well, I never said he'd be an official Young Avenger/Champion, merely that he'd be used to prop the film up.

    And I don't think the film rights have any bearing on this; as long as Sony is letting...

    It's probably a bit of both really.

    A good company provides the supply to meet the demand of its customers. Fans demand more Batman, so DC gives us more Batman. In this way, its the fans and not...

    Exactly. Deadpool has always just done its own thing, with only one foot in continuity (and not taken very seriously even then). And we're not likely to see the character in the more family-friendly...

    I definitely hope Calvin gets a push in the comics. Hell I hope you're wrong and the film *does* end up being Calvin.

    But, assuming the movie even happens at all (and WB doesn't have a good...

    Eh, not a surprise. We've known this was on its way to being official as soon as Disney+ became a thing, it was just a matter of waiting for the Studio to take the time to address it.

    I feel like if you want to throw the biggest, baddest, "holy crap we're still alive and it feels so good!" bash, you gotta go with Beast Boy.

    And I agree with some of the others; if left to her...

    I *think* I read somewhere that Jessica Drew is 100% Marvel Studios, but for all I know her having "Spider" in her name was enough to lump her in with the Sony deal. But I feel like if Sony had...

    Yeah, I know right?

    Don't y'all get it twisted; that's not *my* stance, it's just how I've seen the direct market respond to legacy and replacements. We've all seen it, I'm not saying anything we...
