The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)

Finally managed to watch Thor on D+, it wasn't that bad

The most annoying thing was the aspect ratio changing towards the end

I don’t mean to bang on about CGI but this is where She Hulk is falling apart.

It’s so abundantly clear that the scenes in the law office are an afterthought because she looks awful in those scenes. The fight scene in the theatre, the dating scenes- the CGI looked MUCH better.

This project is one where you can clearly see they ran out of time.
 
I also enjoyed them all! That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement though.
Exactly this. I liked all the films from Phase One, didn’t mean that Phases Two and Three were a huge improvement.

I’m hoping Phase Five picks things up but I have liked all the movies, and some I’ve loved (Eternals and Shang Chi).

My big learning curve with the MCU (and other projects like Rings Of Power) is to not look at Twitter…ever.

The CGI in She Hulk doesn’t bother me. I don’t think the office scenes are not an after thought, they just have lighting you can’t hide behind much. There are less shadows, everything is lit and she has looser clothes which leave very little to cover up anything. It doesn’t bother me though. The only time it feels off is when the eyes feel flat/lifeless. Basically when there are no sort of shine/reflection in the eye.
 
So what do we think they’ll announce today? The Scarlet Witch (2024) please!!



In hindsight Jessica (and the whole old cast) fucking chewed this. The films have their problems but on the whole I still enjoy them and the cast was a bit spot on.

I’m gagging for the Fantastic 4 announcement. Streets are saying Jodie Comer. I’m sure she’s being inundated with offers for these big budget films so I’m intrigued to see if she takes any. I kinda don’t want her to take it because I really want her to be in her critical acclaim Oscar-nominated bag for the next few years and Marvel could get in the way of that. She would eat in the role though of course.
 
I love how perched the world is for any kind of Fantastic Four announcement at this point. The comics are so special, and the literaly start of the Marvel universe, and so fans not being put off by the 2015 false-start is heartening.

Controversial but Chris is a better Johnny Storm than Captain America. Not that he didn't nail Cap, but damn if he isn't the perfect Human Torch.

Also, Jessica got such a bad rep as Sue. People saying she was too pretty to be a scientist when a) Sue isn't meant to be one in the comics, that was a silly choice by the movie, and b) in the comics she is a literal MODEL. She is meant to be stunning.

nn I'm with you on all this though the 'they're a model!' thing is because Stan Lee gave that job to basically every female character he invented in the 1960s. Sue Storm, Mary Jane Watson, Jean Grey (this may have been another 60s writer after Stan left but the point stands) and others were all models because...pretty girls do that I guess. And we must inform the readers that these are pretty girls. (The history of models and female characters' jobs in Marvel Comics is actually pretty interesting, given how prominent Romance and other styles of comic that weren't superhero were in the 20th century before the latter really became the ONE. That's a whole different topic though!)

Many/most adaptations of the the F4 origin story now have given Sue more agency in the form of being a scientist or in some kind of research that makes her inclusion in the space flight make more sense.
