Mark Ruffalo slams Universal and blames them for no stand alone Hulk movie being made in the MCU.

I still don't get why Marvel/Disney just can't buy the rights back. Universal needs the money, even more so considering how their Dark Universe is basically crippled.

Spider-Man Homecoming took a record drop for a MCU movie.

The good news is that it's made $480 million dollars so far.

Why do you think Homecoming took such a major drop at the box office, especially with such a strong audience and critical reception? Do you think the bad aftertaste of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 really had that much of a negative impact on people's interest in Spider-Man?

My reasons

1. Slightly oversaturation of Spider-Man movies since 2002.

2. The second time it got rebooted. Unfair stigma, but that's what happens.

3. The trailers exposing too much.


Meanwhile...Venom will be inspired by John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. And this is supposed to be a comedy movie with Carnage too. While I plan to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, part of me wants to see this, just to see how bad it turns out.

Noah Hawley Developing Doctor Doom Movie for Fox

And the flaming trainwreck otherwise known as "Fox can't make a good Fantastic Four Movie for sh*t" continues. I reiterate, is there no legal course of action Marvel can pursue. Disney isn't hurting for cash, just cough up the necessary change! Lets hope this thing keeps stalling long enough for the timer on Fox to run out.

Michelle Pfeiffer will play Janet Van Dyne in 'Ant Man and the Wasp.'

Kevin Feige sure likes those Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batman movie.

Captain Marvel will take place in the 1990's, will explain how Nick Fury's one eye got damaged, and will have the Skulls as the main villains.

It looks like Fox either sold/gave the rights to the Skulls away to Disney/Marvel.

Here's the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok.



This actually got more positive reception then the Justice League ones at Comic-Con.

Does anybody think that Infinity Wars will dominate 2018 or will Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom either surpass or be roughly equal to it?

When comparing Age of Ultron to Jurassic World, the level of minor backlash Ultron got was just enough to take some of the wind out of its sails while still doing amazing box office. Meanwhile, the surprise that Jurassic World turned out better than many thought it would, and offering something both nostalgic and different from the superhero market, lent itself to repeat business.

I think strong reviews and fan responses will drive Infinity War to be the No 1 smash hit of 2018, this thing has so much momentum going into it and being the result of ten years worth of Marvel films it's really remarkable. Then you've got the Guardians of the Galaxy crossover aspect, which should potentially double the level of interest. I think that will certainly make it the biggest film of the year.

As much as Jurassic World was also a big hit, it has made some fans (older, more jaded fans who don't exactly walk in our circle of fandom, mind you) more jaded and less likely to endorse a sequel, even if it does get great reviews and manages to improve on or rectify the flaws in the last film. Now that the novelty and nostalgic wave has passed, it will have to stand on its own two feet.

I have to agree. Jurassic World was a good movie, but I can't deny that it made more then it really should have. If more effort was put into it, then it would have made $1.8 billion and I truly think that. I'm just worried about how much wind it will take out of JW: FK's sails.

I agree. I think part of the reason JW was a big hit was 3 things.

1. I feel like 2015 was a big year of Nostalgia and hype for everybody with sequels to beloved franchises. Terminator(was pretty bad but still), Mad Max and Star wars at the end of the year. And nothing invoked more Jurassic park nostalgia than a commercial showing a new working park.

2. Chris Pratt. They got so lucky he did so good in GOTG. It was perfect timing as a lead.

3. Right place right time. It was a movie that although an action blockbuster, was not superhero or transformers related, yet still had mass appeal. People LOVE Dino's and it had been practically forever since we have had a good movie about them. That also goes back to the nostalgia factor. Adults were drawn in by their nostalgia and young kids were drawn in by seeing star lord riding raptors. Claire was also an extremely strong female charterer. They checked all the demographics.

I believe that JW is a good movie but i think it owes lots of it's success to "right place at the right time" circumstances.

Christ alive... Sony just don't learn do they?

While I'm blaming Avi Arid for Venom, I'm blaming Pascal for this, at least partly. I think this is her final chance to get back into the Sony power structure. If this fails, which it will since only die-hard fans knows these characters and they don't totally trust Sony, then the contract Pascal has with Sony via her being demoted to producer will not get extended.

It looks like Disney is considering getting rid of the comic book branch of Marvel altogether.

Marvel Comics has been around since long before I was born and I always thought they would be around long after I'd be dead. But this: their possible closure just feels insane!!

I know they brought it upon themselves with all this far-leftist pandering, forced rhetoric and crappy storytelling but this is not the solution. They should be listening to their critics and trying to write new comic books like in the old days before this SJW mindset took hold.

However, given that the digital age has rendered the age of the comic book all but over due to a variety of factors, one must wonder that WB would also consider taking the same route in the distant future. Maybe not next year or even the next five years, but at a time when their movie, TV and animation divisions hold far more interest than their comic book division, just as what's happening with Marvel. Both of these studios will go where the smell of money is strongest.
