    Wolverine was goofy over jean grey in the 90's cartoon which was the greatest adaption of the X-men ever. EVER.

    Did Marvel and Sony ever do the same thing with Spider-Man before that was officially announced? I can't remember.

    No idea, and I'm not suggesting that their telling the truth. Just reporting what they're saying.

    I think it's normally a 'we don't comment on rumour' line.

    It was reported as a rumour not fact. We know from past experiences that one needs a lorry worth of salt to take with them.

    I really dislike talking Hulk. Even the "Hulk SMASH!" moment in TIH I thought was shit.
  • Deleted user 16 October 2015 06:43:13
    See I really dislike Bruce banner and much prefer angry but intelligent hulk

    Having the hulk fly the quinket at the end of ultron does male me suspect he is gaining some of bruces intelligence

    Putting Hulk in space for Thor 3 must be setting up Planet Hulk, surely.

    I don't really like seeing the other characters crop up in other's movies.

    On the whole I'd prefer the individual films to be relatively standalone, it would make the Avengers films seem like bugger events.

    I'm subbed. I make my way through the Events rather than just follow a single series. Going through Secret Invasion at the moment (spoiler: Skrulls are dicks). I'd say it's worth it for the hundreds, if not thousand odd comics I've gone through in a few months.

    I was bored one evening and read the Civil War comic, it was pretty good. No idea if this is what you were talking about.

    He always had athing for her inthe comics as well, but it was lust. Whereas Scott was Jean's one true love. I know the MCU* changes the characters, but for me this a step too far. Also SS cutting through the adamantium claws. It wasn't an awful film by any means, but I didn't enjoy any of the Wolverine films as much as I did the X-Men films.

    * I know the MCU doesn't include the Fox franchises.

    Urghh I hated that he got his claws cut off. And don't get me started on the whole adamantium bullet bullshit from Origins. What did they actually expect it to do, They know full well beforehand he can heal from pretty much any injury. Dicks

    I can accept the arguments against The Wolverine but it's my 2nd or 3rd favourite X-Men film, behind X2 and maybe Days of Future Past.

    My biggest gripe with the X-Men series was the portrayal of Rogue. And the lack of Gambit (Origins didn't count. Nothing in that film counted).

    The only good thing about Origins is Liev Schrieber as Sabretooth.

    Good shout, he was top as sabretooth. Better than that giant sloth fucker in the first xmen film.

    First official images of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange have been released:



    More here!

    I think he looks pretty good but hard to judge without seeing him in motion and all the CGI that's going to be used to make the magic.

    They've also confirmed that Mads Mikkelsen is playing the role of the main villain in the film to absolutely no one's surprise.

    I was already pretty optimistic, but he looks far better than I could've hoped :) I was concerned they might try and tone him down too much (maybe even losing the cloak) but thankfully that's definitely Doctor Strange in all his cosmic glory.

    Yup, that's probably the closest to the comic to date.

    He looks like... Doctor Strange. So yeah, I guess that's a good thing.

    That's some impressively gelled-up hair, I must say. Wolverine has some competition now.

    Infinity war to unite Avengers with the Guardians of the Galaxy

    Kind of worried about all that, Age of Ultron was struggling to balance all the different characters.

    And the secondary Avengers might take the centre stage in Infinity War

    Great, so we might get the B-team taking the centre stage. My excitement level has dropped substantially.

    They're considering 67 different characters for infinity war.

    Guess that'll help with selling more toys and introducing loads of characters that they can use in the next 10 years.

    I'd be more interested in a small group that have character beyond what their powers do.

    How charismatic and interesting as characters Black Panther and Dr Strange etc. will be remains to be seen, but looking at the current B-Team it's a personality vacuum.

    edit - that's a bit harsh. They're good supporting characters but I don't think they could carry a film.
