is a movie that is happening, and I figure someone here probably isn't up to speed, so...

Quicksilver is in this one. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are both going to be in Avengers 2 as well, which is gonna really freak people out.

This guy is playing Bishop. He's French, of African descent, not Australian Aborigine. Somehow I doubt we'll hear much complaining about that, though... for some reason.

And did I mention Peter Dinklage is playing the main villain? Also, Sentinels.

Bishop is an Aborigine? Thought never occured to me. I knew Gateway was Aboriginal, but Bishop? Is this documented?

Also, the dude playing Warpath looks puny for the character he's to be.

It's just too bad Marvel Studios doesn't have the X-men. I bet if they did we could actually see a death of Phoenix storyline done the way it should be done. Shi R Imperial Guard, Battle in the blue zone on the moon. All that good stuff.
Now watch the Guardians of the Galaxy show DC just how good a GL movie could have been.

I'd love to see a series of X-Films where each installment is "three years later". A film about the (REAL) first class... "three years later", the new team storyline... "three years later", death of phoenix part 1, and so on.

One of the things that bothers me most about a lot of these super-films is that the next huge slam-bang event always seems to happen days after the last one.

Some year Spider-Man (first trilogy) had, right?


There's a lot to be said for establishing that your heroes HAVE managed to keep shit together for a while.

I don't know, Spidey graduated from high school was in college. MJ graduated HS got a job as a waitress then got a gig as a stage actress then hooked up with John Jameson. Time did pass. The stupid thing they do in movies like this is to force reminders of the past like Amidala telling a full grown Anakin,"remember when you were a little boy". Or in T3 the new John Conner asking the New Terminator about asta la vista and all that. Bad writing at it's best

CHWolf
05-29-2013, 11:31 PM
Yeah, technically I guess time passes. I suppose there are most likely some details I don't recall, but it has that overall feel of "Green Goblin! Oh no, Dr. Octopus! Uh oh, Venom!" with little to no real mention of or reference to events between.

Did Spidey even do battle against anyone who wasn't in those three films, or did he suit up exclusively for those three periods of time? Not really asking, just rhetorical to illustrate the point.

The Dark Knight Rises is the reverse of this, for better or worse. Dark Knight supposedly occurs right after Begins (the Joker card at the end leading into the first ever meetings between Batsy and Joker in the sequel) but then TDKR is like... "Then eight years later..." Heh.

Justice41

Well obviously in Spidey one Pete was living with Harry after HS and on his own in 2 and 3.
The bit after Spidey fights Sandman about where do these guys come from was probably a nod to other characters outside of the flicks. Plus Spidey is always at it even if it's just common crooks. Bats seems more flawed as it does seem that 2 happened not long after 1. Catching the scarecrow and still wearing the original costume pointed to that. I'd like to know at what point did Bats get so damaged he had to hang up the cowl until Bane came along. I really believe the Joker was to be in the 3rd flick along with Ras al Ghul and Talia and possibly Bane until Ledger kicked the bucket and things were shifted around to cover that. The last flick was just too hamfisted and stupid to have been the original story. It smacked of rewrites to remove and replace the Joker. The entire Harvey Dent memorial was just a weak ass story point it was def jammed in to make up for the loss of Ledger and the Joker. It's implausible that after 8 years the city would still be mourning a dead DA. Hell it's been only 12 years since 9-11 and people are already over that and that was a huge event. But 8 years later and Harvey Dent is being honored in a huge ceremony? I don't believe that was originally in the story. Just jammed in to anchor the sill notion that Gordon after 8 years would be keeping a secret that haunts him. That's even dumber than the ceremony. I really believe that the Joker was meant to be the guy holding court over the cops instead of Crane.

The official story is that Chris and Jonathan Nolan didn't actually have anything in the way of a story for TDKR until 2010. Official stories have been BS before, of course.

What's funny is that in TDKR Nolan made Batman sit on his ass for 8 years doing nothing, yet he's still in good shape. Bruce Wayne is probably an ectomorph.

:har: This deserves appreciation.

Here's one thing that superhero movies fail on quite often, but always seem to avoid being questioned on (because the movies are filled with effects that wipe-clean any memory of story, quite often): they don't have a particularly epic career. Sure, in the comics they have many, many writers, and many chances for new stories each month, but still - look at Batman. So in Nolan's 'verse (which I love, but which I think is becoming far too copied lately), Batman, created to lure the wicked from the shadows in order to be exposed and therefore seen as nothing to be feared whilst be beating by a symbol of rising up from fear and beating down evil (or something like that) does what, exactly? He stops the city being taken over by a lunatic in a mask. He saves the city from madness. Then he saves the city from a terrorist. Then he goes into hiding for 8 years, then he comes back and saves the city from a bomb. The end. Sure, in the real World it would be a career to rest on for the rest of your life, but in terms of superheroes, not that much. I know movies can only show so much, and do so much, but I'd like to see a movie about an already established hero, which we just haven't really had. Everything is beginnings, and in Batman's case, ends, with not particularly much else going on. The time not moving thing is part of the problem, but it's also failing to be brave enough to work on a character that isn't just starting out and getting over teething problems with their powers or whatever.

I'd like to see an X-Men movie where all the characters are already well established and we're just thrown into the middle of it all and have to pick up on each character as the story goes along, y'know, like in any other movie.

X-men 1 did have the heroes as established and was introduced by throwing Wolverine and Rogue into their midst. Thor Also

I remember seeing this dumb but good concept movie "White Man's Burden" where the race issue was reversed. It wasn't a good movie but it just began concept in place and you figured it out. We didn't have to see how it happened you just accepted it.
So many Superhero movies have to show the origin, and tie all the characters together, and have to have a redemption story. It's getting old. I'd like to see a character that's comfortable with his powers and role and doesn't have to prove himself. I'd also like to see a story where everybody isn't related to each other by the 3rd installment.

Marvel were talking about doing a Cable movie several years back, so I assume the rights are still with them.

Watched Jack the Giant Slayer last night. It was a slow, one-dimensional crapfest. Then I remembered that Bryan Singer was never a great director. X2 might be the only watchable flick since Usual Suspects. So while people think it's great to have him back for this X-men flick, I think it'll be more of the same boring Singer stuff.

Jack the Giant Slayer felt so lazy. It was just 'get butts in seats' movie, at least to me. There was nothing in it that really made me understand why it got made - it was a pretty dull movie overall, with nothing new to show for it. The giants just felt like dull cardboard-cutout CGI characters, and having Bill Nighy pull out his 'Davey Jones' voice for the giant leader, I mean, really?

I think Singer can be good if he has a really strong script and a really good cast. I can't believe 'The Usual Suspects' was just a happy accident. But maybe you are right - maybe it isn't Singer that is doing anything except getting occasionally lucky with talent that overrides his directing.

I want the new X-men movie to be the best of all time, but I wasn't thrilled to hear Singer was back. I liked Matthew Vaughn. First Class was my favorite flick from that year. I guess we'll know more when the first trailer hits.

I believe the Sentinels were supposed to be able to transport in their canisters a body or two. All that plastic looks retarded. One havok blast or cyclops shot or storm lightning or iceman freeze or name a mutant will just destroy the Dysentinel. I betcha the design and whatnot was meant as a weapon against Magneto.
