Almost surprising he wasn't chosen for Captain Marvel given how many movies he and Larson have worked on together. 

Starring Emma Stone.

Loved Captain Marvel. I think the Thor comparison is pretty apt. A plot much like the first one, some of the third’s humor. But a nice twist of its own.

Predictions:

Surely there’s more to come with Annette Benning, right? Am I the only one thinking she’s Carol’s mother?

And having her BE Mar-vell was great.

 

Spoiler

You think Carol Danvers' mother was a Kree? I don't see that happening.

James Gunn will return to Disney to direct Guardians 3 after he finishes Suicide Squad 2 for DC.

Should never have left, right decision. Whole cast wanted it and now we'll get a worthy end to the trilogy.

I never in a million years thought they would back down or admit they over-reacted. A begrudging fair play to Disney, but this really should never have happened in the first place.

I hear Batista went into their offices and kept yelling "GIVE ME WHAT I WANT!" until they finally relented. :shifty:

On the plus side this means Suicide Squad might be good, plus another Guardians. And so much Big Dave.

Captain Marvel - I liked it, it was a fun movie, but I was taken out of immersion by a number of things I was critical of

 

The humor felt really forced at times. I kind of want to go back and rewatch just to count the number of scenes where someone tells a joke and then we get a reaction shot from another character laughing. It was like the director was telling me "they are having a good time. You are having a good time." So I wasn't having a good time during that because it wasn't organic.

Brie Larson was a good casting choice for smart aleck OP superhero, but I still don't buy her as a soldier for the Kree or passing boot camp for the airforce. When I saw her fail in boot camp I thought they would show her going back to try again and succeeding, but it only reinforced that they could have cast someone tougher looking and believable as a member of the military. She's the embodiment of Jason Statham's interview on why he doesn't audition for superhero movies - it's all CGI and special effects so anyone can be a superhero without needing any actual fighting training or toughness

I hate that she let Jude Law's character live. Moments earlier she tore through an entire battleship, exploding it to smithereens, along with probably hundreds of Kree soldiers. Moments before that, Jude Law was ordering the innocent Skrull refugees be sent out the airlock, and before that, killed Mar-Vell in a flashback. This is part of a bigger superhero running theme I hate, which is they clearly kill a ton of meaningless baddies and then let the head of the snake live to teach him a lesson. I clearly need to go back to finishing season 2 of The Punisher.

I did like a lot though: Fury, Goose, Maria/Monica Rambeau, how much it added to the mythos with the Tesseract and other characters we'd see in other films, the 90s nostalgia references, even the Terminator 2 similarities when she gets to Earth. Overall, fun movie, but I thought Wonder Woman was the better female-lead superhero film.

Dr. Strange is on tv so I’m watching it. I really like this movie.

I just watched this! It is indeed very fun, but for some reason quite forgettable for me compared to the other films.

I hope at some point they get back to giving Hulk his own films. I actually really enjoyed the one in current continuity, but I feel like they can do a lot more now with the extended universe.

I believe the Hulk movie rights are still owned by Universal.

That’s precisely why, yeah.

Yea, but Disney could search their couch cushions and find the money they'd probably need to buy the distribution rights back

      Hey guys! So I've been fortunate enough to have great support here on the boards. 
      I shared a wrestlers-turned-actors video I produced while interning at Entertainment Tonight Canada and it got massive traction thanks to you. 
      Since then, they've allowed me to produce my own original video series -- so of course I made it Marvel themed! If you could take the time to share this "Cheat Sheet" video, I would be forever grateful. All this support has really helped give me opportunity in an otherwise harsh industry. 
      That being said! I really want to start conversation. Whose team are you on? My minds with Cap' but my hearts with Spidey <3
