They are really cramming in as many films as possible to make up for missing 2020.
Sure.. I mean, "Black Widow" has been sitting around for some time now. How many MCU movies were supposed to have been released in 2021? They gotta get back on track.
There is word that Marvel and Disney will be releasing a new Fantastic Four movie in the future. It just seems like any of the Marvel characters on the big screen other than the ones that Marvel produced just don't have the same appeal as the rest of the MCU movies, although the first two Spider-Man movies with Tobey McGuire were pretty good. Didn't care all that much for the Andrew Garfield series. The FF movies were abysmal at best. The X-Men series was hit or miss most of the time with a few good ones mixed in with a few mediocre ones.
Although it was the X-Men and Spider-Man films that launched the modern era of superhero movies. Marvel only took over almost a decade down the road.
But boy did they take over!
It doesn't seem like there will be an Avengers movie to end Phase 4.
My theory about the Spider Man No Way Home title is that he's in multiple other dimensions during the movie.
He possibly might not even get home until Dr Strange 2
He gets home?
I think the Avengers, at least the core group that really makes up the Avengers, is basically done. Tony Stark is dead, Natasha Romanoff is dead, Steve Rogers is old. I think Marvel is going to have to come up with a new name for whatever group becomes the successors to the Avengers. Not being a comic book reader, I don't know if that's already been decided, or if it's something the studio execs will decide based on how fans respond to the next several movies and new characters.
There were dozens and dozens and dozens of Avengers lineups in the comics.
I have heard some say that 1998's Blade kicked off the modern era of superhero movies. We went from the corny Batman movies, to a very serious Blade. As a person that loves that movie, I kind of agree.
What about 1989 Batman? I wouldn't call that corny. But yes, they went screaming towards corny after every successive movie of that series.
I would say the day Sony announced the Spider-Man boxoffice kicked off the modern era of superhero movies.
They have also introduced (or are introducing) several of the comic book Young Avengers team...Cassie Lang/Stature (in Ant-Man), Elijah Bradley/Patriot (Falcon & Bucky), Tommy/Wiccan & Billy/Speed (WandaVision), and Kate Bishop/Hawkeye II (the upcoming Hawkeye series). It seems pretty obvious that they are setting up the Young Avengers for something, sometime.
Thats fine and all but I want more real Avengers. Thor. Hulk. Spider-Man. Some Ant-Man. Wanda Maximoff when she is good. etc.
My guess (and it's purely a guess) is that we'll see that in the movies, and the Young Avengers on TV...
Everything Marvel touches turns to gold.
I am looking forward to the rebooted Fantastic Four.
I liked the first two Fantastic 4 movies. Chris Evans made a great Johnny Storm, and Michael Chiklis was fun as The Thing. The 2015 reboot, meh.
It will be interesting to see what Marvel does with it on their own.
I would have to say that the first Superman movie with Christopher Reeve released back in 1978 was the first true superhero movie of any quality that brought the genre to the big screen. The sequels followed by the Batman series from Tim Burton in 1989 really started the ball rolling. The MCU movies didn't really take off until the first Iron Man movie (2008), even though the Hulk predated it (2003), but we won't count the Ang Lee version. Since Spider-Man was produced by Sony in 2002 so it's hard to include him in the MCU until Captain America: Civil War. The first X-Men movie came out in 2000 so I can see how you came to your conclusion, at least from the Marvel superhero side of things, but they were still not technically part of the MCU. DC really beat them to the punch, but Marvel served up the KO once they got going.
When X-Men and Spider-Man came along, superhero movies were dead in the water. They started the modern era. And, as I said, a few years later Marvel took over.
