I feel like a kid again. That opening shot with the crashed Star Destroyer, the reveal of the chrome trooper, the John Williams score, the final shot with Han & Chewie! BEST TIME TO BE ALIVE!
All of this is great news.
One of the Horsemen? The new Brotherhood? There has to be a reason for Mystique breaking those soldier mutants out during the Vietnam scene in Days of Future Past.
@brian I really wish DC hadn't put their brand on Zack Snyder to godfather. Compared to someone like Joss Whedon or even the Russo brothers (who appear to be taking over for Whedon), Snyder has the artistic vision of a 14 year old boy.
I hope the fight scenes between Batman and Superman aren't the awful CGI garbage from Man of Steel.
Yup. Things are shaping. up. It still doesn't look like it has the charm of the Marvel Studios films, but this cast is great.
I love the potential for this movie to be something we haven't seen in a Star Wars film before. No Jedi, no magic. Just some dudes with planes and guns.
Bad news. She was the main draw to this movie for me.
A Pixar writer and the co-writer of Guardians of the Galaxy? These are some top notch ladies. It bodes well for this movie. Now we just need a director and star!
Jokes! Yay! So much more true to the film's (presumed) tone than the first trailer.
Weintraub says there's an after-credits scene, but Whedon said there wouldn't be. Is Weintraub only referring to the "mid-credits" stinger, or has there really been something added at the very end?
@thedude1 It's also really tough to compare to any show on Netflix because the only metric to determine whether a Netflix show is a "hit" is whether Netflix says it is. They keep those numbers secret, so while Disney might have access to whether Netflix or ABC is more profitable for them, no one in the public has that information to speculate with any degree of accuracy.
@thedude1 If it drops below 4 million consistently, I'll agree it's in trouble, but that's a number that suggests it's found a small, loyal fanbase. It's the same size viewership Fringe had in the beginning of its third season, and that got renewed twice more (yes, I know different network).
I don't see how they could combine Fire and Hornet's Nest. Those are both pretty meaty novels. While they do tell one continued story it's too much to fit in a single movie in my opinion.
@junior-roberts Technically yes, but I doubt there will be any attempt to tie the plot in with the X-Men films. Given Deadpool's penchant for breaking the fourth wall I imagine they will make references to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though.
@junior-roberts I would have loved to see Djimon Hounsou as T'Chaka, but Marvel already wasted him on a nothing role in Guardians of the Galaxy.
The image looks fantastic. I'm not sure how they're going to explain the age thing (Angel was born 1980 at the earliest in the original timeline and here he's a teenager in 1985), or if they'll even try to. I'll buy his parents just had a son earlier, but if we're supposed to take the 1973 events of DoFP as the catalyst that changed things, that would still only make him 11 or 12 in this film. At least Kodi Smit McPhee's age lines up as believable for a young Nightcrawler.
