Yeah I’m expecting the MCU to burn the franchise to the ground and start afresh with a reboot.

They’ve confirmed Deadpool will stay R Rated, which is a smart move
Yeah that's a pretty **** vital thing.
I love x-men, that's my entire comic book nerd bag, just **** love it... my son is 5 and we're watching the tv cartoon series together and it's just... i mean honestly, it's just really cool to sit here and watch this with my boy the way me and my dad watched it together

So im super pumped about the idea of x-men getting into the universe, and hopefully me and my boy can go and get some cinema time in before he gets too old to want to hang with dad

Me too, X Men got me into comics. It was my Cheez Tv cartoon I had to watch before I started getting ready for school.

Only beef with the movie franchise is how long it’s taken to get Gambit into the game. Dudes my favourite

We need some more movies about old people going to India and staying in a hotel.

And less movies about comic book characters.

Yeah I’m 34. I still remember going to school devastated because they killed off Morph. I think that was the first time a show got me like that.
I agree that the movies messed up by combining Rogue and Jubilee together.

One thing about X Men would be seeing how they integrate them, and see how they explain away why they weren’t involved in the battle of New York, or even IW and Endgame.

Well they can't hang around too long as the actors are ageing. You will have a couple of fresh faced new operatives being played by middle aged people.

True, but the CGI used to make actors look younger is incredible these days.

Case in point, Samuel L Mother ******* Jackson in Captain Marvel.

Must admit Hollywood had been struggling for quality for a long time now. Superhero movies are the ones propping it up. Go to the IMDB top 100 and it's hard to find many quality dramas post 2000.

I guess it depends on who's doing the movie.
If it's a Hollywood blockbuster
Belcher: Jon Hamm
Mal: The Rock
Loz: Ben Affleck
Chicka: Morgan Freeman
Stick: Matthew McConaughey
Lazarus: Chris Hemsworth
Clyde: Tom Hardy
Sheens: Michael Keaton

If it's a Channel 7 INXS style POS
Belcher: Matt Nable
Mal: Jai Lag'aia
Loz: Samuel Johnson
Chicka: Probably Hugh Sheridan, knowing how white washed Aussie tv shows are
Stick: Matthew Le Nevez
Lazarus: Shane Jacobson
Clyde: Brendan Cowell
Sheens: Frankie J Holden
Throw in Deborah Mailman somewhere, because she's obligated to do so

Potential spoilers below...

Just finished... loved it. A couple of things that got me though:
1. How did Peggy not see Captain America looking at her?
2. Did Nebula at least contemplate telling the Avengers that someone would have to die to retrieve the soul stone?

So I’ve been reading up about this Spider-Man stalemate. In a nutshell, Sony owns the rights to Spidey, and agreed to let Marvel use the character so he can be in this cinematic universe. To sweeten the deal, Sony gets 95% of the profits made by Spideys films.

Disney are trying to negotiate that up to 50%. Sony’s baulking, because they know they have Disney over a barrel. Spidey is going to be the possibly the next leader to replace Stark. They’re probably cocky after their Spiderverse and Venom movies made some money, so they’re probably thinking they can make movies now.

BUT. Disney are now threatening to just drop him altogether. What this means is if Sony wants to go it alone and make their own Spidey movies again, they can’t use any characters or make any references to the MCU. I fee this might have been part of the plan all along, hence why they built Stark as a critical person in Parker’s life, and even made up characters in the movies to be his mates.

It’s looking like another *shudders* reboot if they want to continue

Spiderman could end up rivalling Batman for the number of reboots. The pattern for these single main character superhero series looks like 3 movies max. I wouldn't be trying to milk the current Spiderman fanchise any further.

Tom Holland has also signed on for 2 more Spider-Man movies, which would make it weirder, because it leaves Sony in a position where they make a Tom Holland Spidey movie, but cannot reference Stark, Avengers or anything else in the MCU.

At least with Marvel owning Fox, they do have Xmen and Fantastic 4 as fallback options.

I cant imagine this will end up happening.
Sony and Disney will come to an arrangement. Sony are posturing because they had an insanely great deal and dont want to lose it, but they arent silly enough to think they can make money on a Spiderman Franchise without being able to continue to put him in the MCU

They'll come to an agreement, either Disney will stump up and just say **** it and buy the rights back at huge expense, or they and Sony will come to another agreement somewhere around the middle of 99% vs 50% to keep things as is.

Havent seen the new spiderman movie though.

I haven’t seen it either. I fee I need a bit of a break after End Game. I’ll probably just stream that one somewhere.

The 3rd option knowing Disney is they just buy Sony. Sony’s too big for that to happen, I know.

I agree they’ll come to an agreement. Marvel have set Spidey up to be the face of this next phase, plus surely Sony remembers what they did to the last 2 iterations of Spiderman
