    I'm really pissed off that they're starting over because I wanted to see what was going on with Oscorp and was looking forward to the Black Cat making an appearance.There had better not be another origin story.

    I'd rather they introduced us to this incarnation of Spidey through the eyes of the Avengers or SHIELD. Have them investigating him, trying to track him down. Show us newspaper headlines and TV news reports, eyewitness testimonials and wrongdoers hanging from lampposts via webbing. Have a character eventually corner him and bring him in, or even just talk to him in a back alley or coffee shop. A quick mention of being bitten by a radioactive spider and voila, job done.
     
  2. An entire season-long arc on SHIELD before integrating him into the movies would actually be the perfect way to do this. Write to someone.
     
  3. Have they lost Felicity Jones as well then I wonder?

    I think they'd be stupid not to use Felicity since I assume she was signed on a multi-film contract. And frankly, did anyone even pay enough attention to her ASM2 to remember her? She's probably the one they could easily keep without people confused about whether or not the new films are in the same continuity as the old films.
     
  5. I think Disney have given up on the X-Franchise for now. There is no way in hell that Fox will lose that cash cow!
    Another sign is the whole Terrigen mist storyline in SHIELD and the probable revamp of Wanda/Pietro into Inhumans in comics/Avengers movie. Why go through all that trouble?

    Like was mentioned, introducing the new Spider Man backstory in the SHIELD TV show is a wonderful idea.
     
  6. Felicity Jones is the lead in the first Star Wars spin-off film, so I would guess she's not black Cat now.
     
  7. Garfield's Peter was just very, very flakey... all those weird mannerisms and tics.

    They never will, but a Spider-Man set in the sixties a la the original Lee and Ditko/Romita comics would be the best route, superheroics with a Mad Men aesthetic... like the Man from Uncle trailer (which looks lots of fun).
     
  8. That does sound great. I've always thought that they should do Superman movies in the original 1930s setting. It just feels right. Plus, there's a lot of philosophical drama they could explore with the US having a literal Superman during WWII, what with Nietzsche and √úbermensch and all that, although I guess that would be too dark. It was the direction I felt the first Captain American really needed to take, but they didn't and it was the most boring Marvel movie that ever there was.
     
  9. I love the first Captain America movie... It's my most watched Marvel movie... I'm not sure why, but the 40s setting certainly has something to do with it.

    A 30s set Superman would be amazing.
     
  10. I've always felt Superman lent himself to that sort of period more than any other hero. It could be amazing. Should've done that with the reboot really.
     
  11. No to Dylan O'Brien but yes fucking please to Tyler Posey. Not that I've seen his name mentioned anywhere or anything, but he'd be at the very least a lot better than most of the suggestions being thrown around.

    Jake Gyllenhaal would have been so perfect back in 2002. Alas.

    Why does it look like a reprise of the first movie? Meh.
     
  13. yes, it hasn't got me itching to see it (though I will obviously)... looks a bit, er, gloomy.

    We've just seen this movie so many times (honestly, does anybody get excited about watching a money shot of a building crumbling?), and even if this one is good (at the very least it will be passable), it already has a familiar feeling.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier is probably my favorite of the Marvel movies.

    Yeah I'm sick of seeing buildings reduced to dust. The Winter Soldier managed to make the characters the focus of the movie, even when all hell was breaking loose around them, so they need to try and replicate that formula.
     
  16. Your lack of faith in Sir Joss Whedon is worrying. The trailer is obviously going to sell the big explosions bit to all the randoms who want a fun way to spend a Friday night, but I feel almost certain the actual film will be balls-out amazing from start to finish.

    I think it was the Empire review of The Winter Soldier which basically said "Come on, Marvel; a city getting smashed up as the finale? Again? Try something new."

    Which they should.
     
  18. But the city doesn't get smashed up in Winter Soldier, just a couple of hellicarriers and Shield HQ.

    Same difference, it's still just big shit getting smashed up.

    Please, no more breakage of things, Marvel. Keep things neat.
