Yeah, so it's fair that people are very nervous about Loveness also writing Kang Dynasty. I'd prefer he was not allowed anywhere near an Avengers movie.Quantumania on the other hand...that script was fucking diabolical. I hope Michelle was paid overtime for managing to make her scenes work.
The way it would be seen as a classic if it came a few movies earlier and before they offed Natasha.Black Widow doesn't get enough credit for how good the script was, honestly.
I’m wondering who’s doing the Marvels rewrite. Apparently it needs more action sequences in the movie.Well, it bodes well they've brought Eric Pearson back on for Thunderbolts. He's credited for Black Widow and Ragnarok, but also did rewrites on Homecoming, Infinity War and Endgame.
I'm scared for that movie. I'll watch the shit out of it, because of Brie and Teyona, but (and I know I'm in the minority), I didn't love Iman's performance. She's very adorable and did a fine job for a cute Disney+ show, but I'm not feeling really that confident in her transitioning to the movies. I did cringe quite a few times.I’m wondering who’s doing the Marvels rewrite. Apparently it needs more action sequences in the movie.
Fixed that for you.Also, incels just fucking hate Brie, so this one's an uphill struggle, no matter how good it is.
Exactly.Apologies on that front then, I still think there's factors beyond what one single person can create within this. Especially when it seems to heavily be linked to the sheer workload of phase 4 content
Iger recognizes the issue. I think the recent firings are warranted and the slow down of movie/show production is evident. However is it too little, too late?Exactly.
Firing one executive is a symbolic gesture, perhaps even one to serve as a distraction from the systemic problems of the studio. It won’t be until someone is willing to address the nature of Marvel’s production demands and scheduling that you can expect a return to better quality films. They’ve been diluting their product for years, partly because of the demands of Disney+, and while this particular exec does seem to have been problematic (although she wasn’t universally loathed as some would have you believe), she’s not at the core of the problem. It won’t be until Bob Iger, Feige, and others see that their bottom-line is really threatened that real change will take place. It just sucks that the storytelling and artists (both those that develop and film, and those in post-prod) will inevitably get lost in the mix.
Nah, it is just a flop. Finishing with a 4 in front of it is just terrible. It not even managing to reach the first Ant-Man is pretty bad, when Ant-Man 2 managed to increase it by $100m.Quantumania wasn't a flop but it sure was a disappointment box office-wise.
Just noticed I accidentally skipped an episode. So that's why last night's episode started so abruptly.Started watching Daredevil. NOT Charlie Cox being even hotter than I thought.
Yes, again.Guardians will be fine. I'd say The Marvels and the next projects may have more of an uphill struggle.
To some extent there is a general audience who saw 'Endgame' as just...the stepping off point/end of the story. To another extent I think a general mixed reception to most superhero movies as of late hasn't helped, I'm sure the issues compounds over time; especially with streaming as an option.
It’s also humorous to see Bob Iger cast as this Disney savior, when he created a lot of the problems Disney has been facing (Disney+, developing/scheduling projects so far out, acquiring Fox), but dipped out while the ship ‘went down’. That’s an exaggeration, but whatever, he’s a millionaire CEO.
To the point of Endgame being a natural end point for general audiences, this is why I’ve always thought it bizarre, with the Fox rights now, that they shelved X-Men and started making films about B-List characters. Generating a new wave of hype by re-upping X-Men and having a PR campaign about ‘doing it right’ would have been the perfect pivot post-Endgame, with all of Marvel and Feige’s goodwill at disposal.
