Bullwinkle, you're right. I meant contrary.

But hey, thanks for reminding me why I cared so much about your opinion on what I base MY opinion on. I should simply check in to get your feedback on what I should like - cuz you know, Iron Man 2 and 3 were on par with the original (which would certainly show things getting better, no?)

So why not assume Avengers 2 is going to be better? Oh, wait. Discussing this with you is pointless. Carry on telling me why I'm wrong to not assume all things Marvel (produced or not) are subject to the same criticality that I employ in say, deciding to watch movies directed by those geniuses behind The Matrix (1).


Purge, I honestly don't care about your feelings for any upcoming movies, by which I mean you're welcome to your opinions.  What I care about is when you're basing those opinions on incorrect information.  And stubbornly hold to them despite evidence to show where you've been incorrect.



So my SEVEN attempts to watch Thor 2, that's right SEVEN, in which the movie has failed to grab me is no cause for concern? I have yet to finish it ... it's just so MEH! I've also listed Phase 2 movies in my list of movies that have concerns (hence the reference to both direct and indirect).

Marvel made money renting out their licenses to other production companies. But of course, this is just my stubborn streak. Roll Eyes And to point this out - you're the one stubbornly refusing to acknowledge that I may have a point by clinging to the idea that the entirety of my opinion is derived on movies that Marvel didn't produce directly.

And by that same yardstick, some of the treatments outside Marvel have also been awesome, so I fail to see how I'm wrong in assuming all movies based in the Marvel universe (regardless of publisher) should be viewed critically before becoming an instant fan.

Jesus, Purge.  Whatever.

You slammed MCU movies and listed non-MCU movies to do it.

You posted this in a public forum, and yet you got your nut in a twist because someone in that public said something about it.

After I had mentioned Dylan O' Brien for Spidey, I found it's been making the news quite a bit:

http://moviepilot.com/posts/2015/02/18/why-dylan-o-brien-is-the-spider-man-the-mcu-needs-2704487?

Probably a lot of wishful thinking, but news is claiming he and Logan Lerman are the front-runners.  Logan is a good actor and may have a larger fan base (from Percy Jackson), but Dylan is far and away the better choice.  While I've liked Tobey and Andrew, the thing that both lack (and Logan as well) is the innate sense of humor that I think the Spiderman character in the films is missing.  Sure they've had some fun one-liners, but they often felt a bit forced to me.  Dylan has a much more natural comic sense and timing than these other actors, but he can do all the nerdy, sensitive, action and sexy stuff on top of that.  It didn't come across much in Maze Runner, but it does on Teen Wolf and on his Youtube presence.  I really think he could potentially fit the Spiderman role the way that Robert Downey Jr. took to Iron Man.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

I completely agree.  I felt like they were SO wrapped up in the lady drama that it just always felt forced.  A real smartass could bring that character to life.  I'm hoping that they get a Ryan Reynolds type to play him.
