Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase II Discussion

Recommended Posts

I hope they don't do the Pirates of the Caribbean thing and hype up some actor out of left field being Peter's dad and instead focus more on Peter's dad being a legit cool character.

Well here it is in regular size in case anyone needs it.

That's a big bunch of meh.

The first GUARDIANS trailer front-loaded the "Yes, the name is stupid" gag and then went about the business of showing you how it was not so stupid and, in fact, rather cool.

This is like a minute of generic superhero business, punctuated by HUR HUR ANT-MAN.

Ant-Man belongs in the Phase III thread.

No, it's the end of P2 per the big P3 reveal event.

Liked the trailer. Still sad about geriatric Hank, but I thought the voice over worked well. GF gave me no end of shit for getting excited. Love the costume.

I'm disappointed they didn't save ANT-MAN for the start of Phase IV.

Not saying the film will be bad, but honestly just haven't been invested in this project at all for the last six years.  Trailer didn't really convince me of otherwise.

 

I just don't like Lang being the hero over Pym.  Pym has always been Ant-Man/Giant Man to me.  Something akin to Hank in Earth's Mightiest Heroes is what I want to see.  Not this.

 

Look to be perfectly honest, Marvel can afford a flop or a double at this point.  Not everything will be a homerun.  I am sure this will do decent business because of the Marvel Studios name at this point.  But even going back to 2008, Incredible Hulk was a letdown.  

 

And this:

I wanted more Honey I Shrunk the Kids "Everything is giant!" and less "Guy riding a flying ant who is tiny in perspective to the other people around him."

I really didn't like it when folks thought Guardians was going to be shit when I saw that and probably championed it the hardest from that very first trailer. I don't think anyone lost their shit over that as much as I did. So I'm sure there's someone else on here that sees in Ant-Man what I saw in Guardians and I don't want to shit all over it because it is just a teaser, but my general feeling at this point is...

Michael Douglas is awesome though, I'll give the movie that.

All the Marvel movies, even the worst ones like Iron Man 2 and Incredible Hulk, are still utterly watchable. Worst case scenario, Ant-Man is just "fine". Besides, it's like a month after Avengers 2, right? I can't bitch about what is essentially a bonus movie.

Yeah everyone was blasting the first Guardians trailer here when it came out and people said Need for Speed was going to make more money.

NEED FOR SPEED was fucking shit!

I was gonna see Need for Speed, but it was only out for about 2 hours.

 

 

I heard it was in focus though.

This is my life.

My text to a friend: "Did u see the ant man trailer? What's your thoughts?"

The reply: "You think Ant Man ever shrinks down when he's getting laid? I mean, to the size that he can *really* "get up in there?"

We really should have seen the signs in Johns all the way back then.
