Marvel Movies & TV General Discussion


#6684

Who is the Skrull with Piccolo?


#6685

#6686

If we’re not allowed to objectify Jude Law I’m done with this snowflakery!!


#6687

#6688

With this, Gemini Man, and The Irishman, 2019’s a big year for unnecessary de-aging in movies.


#6689

And the new Terminator movie.

It feels like it’s the current thing to do if you want to show off how good your effects are. I blame Terminator Genisys and Civil War.


#6690

But they aren’t de-aging Sam Jackson to look like Sam Jackson of the 90s, they’re de-aging the character Nick Fury. That’s how Marvel is saying Fury looked back in the 90s. So yeah, good old silly click bait.


#6691

90’s Fury looks an awful lot like Augustus Gibbons.


#6692

I would expect 90s Nick Fury to look a lot like Jules Winnfield.

Maybe when Jules went off to walk the Earth like Kane from Kung Fu, he wandered into S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters.

Of course that would screw up my 1960s set Fantastic Four movie that has a guest appearance by Director Peggy Carter and Nicholas, her fifteen year-old protégée.


#6693

But it would make his epitaph in The Winter Soldier more than just meta-commentary.


#6694

I demand a Tron Legacy special edition.


#6695

You’ll probably get one eventually. They cost money to make (remake?) but they’re a good way to repackage a film.

I think the trend to big battle scenes at the end of films is just that; a trend.

Occasionally you’ll find interviews where they’ll talk about the dilemma on how to end the bigger blockbusters. How much does the audience want to see spectacle and how important is the protagonist vs antagonist in the middle of all that?

Can you end a globetrotting, action adventure story with the fate of the world at stake, with just two characters punching the crap out of each other? Or do you need a hoard of combatants on a huge battlefield?

Different movies come to different conclusions.


#6696

I remember people being all irritated about the quiet conclusion to Zemo/T’Challa in Civil War but I thought it was the best part of that movie.


#6697

I liked that, too.

Didn’t like the overall Zemo plot though, that was crap.

But the ending with T’Challa was definitely good.


#6698

#6699

Would you ever do another X-Men film?
If there was a way that it made sense for my character to be in the world, of course. I feel like that’s my film family, because I’ve been making those movies since I was 16. But there’s been so many spinoffs and reboots and TV shows, so I’m not sure where Rogue or the other original characters fit into the current plotlines, so it’s probably not going to happen.


#6700

Interestingly the season is only 10 episodes this time.


#6701

#6702

I’m completely unfamiliar with Captain Marvel or Skrulls, am I going to be lost with this new movie?


#6703

Doubt it, I mean that can be covered as quick as a couple of lines:

Fury: What the mother fucking hell is that?
Marvel: Shape-shifting aliens that I kick the crap out of.

There job done, only unlikely element is the cursing.
