    Well now we enter the age of marvel B movies . . .

    There's a lot of creative story lines with female superheros, but the only reason Marvel has decided to do this is because of the succes of Wonder Women, (which is boring and stupid to me), and at the same time political. Because DC were the first ones to put out a major female superhero movie and that made Marvel have to do it, cause the fans wanted something like that from them. Otherwise they would look like a Male Supremacy studio. Nothing againts female leads, im looking forward to what Marvel can come up with, but just stating the facts.

      SD Parker no not with Captain Marvel, but it does apply to the rest of the future female super heroes.

      This has nothing, repeat nothing to do with Wonder Woman. Captain Marvel was announced by Kevin Feige in January 2015 (14 months before even BvS came out)... even if the release date was off.

      sirmoonslosthismind 1rst of were not talking about Black Panther, 2nd of all there wasnt any mention or rumor that we were going to get a Black Widow film before Wonder Woman and after that we had rumors and now official statements that its happening. 3rd before Marvel studios broke up with Marvel Entertainment we had Jessica Jones and now Luke Cage, so its not like we were never going to get these films in the first place.

      there is nothing factual in your comment. marvel studios has wanted to do characters like black panther and captain marvel for a long time. they were hindered by ike perlmutter of marvel entertainment, who is a notorious bigot. however, disney reorganized after age of ultron, and marvel studios no longer reports to marvel entertainment. that's why we got black panther and that's why we're getting captain marvel. it has nothing to do with dc.

    Loved The Nun! Horror movies aren't exactly known for their amazing dialogue. I went with 3 friends and we were all creeped out from beginning to end. None of the paranormal elements seemed grounded in reality so I needed a little exposition to know what the hell was going on.

    John I hate to brake it to you but gamers are not at all like that. There’s already a lot of people saying that the story for Marvel’s Spider-Man is better than any of the movies. Also while games are for their gameplay we are already seeing video-game stories at the level of Hollywood movies, and with the increase in quality comes the expectations that a games story is just as important as the gameplay.

    • Your Casual Gamer

      bloodsoldierZ here’s another reality check, casual gamers are not the majority of the gaming community. In fact, casual gamers are the lowest minority when it comes to gaming. Casual gamers are your CoD players, your Madden gamers, and your mobile gamers. Another fact, casual gamers are completely shunned from the community, I don’t endorse that, but that’s how it is. Casual gamers don’t know the in’s and out’s of gaming. You tell them the name of an indie game and they’ll go “huh?” and move on to play the next cod and madden year after year or play the hot new mobile game or the tren game. Casual gamers can voice their opinions, but they are not part of the voice.

      +bloodsoldierZ The very fact that you claim yourself to be a "Casual Gamer", completely undermines any points you may have. You are not allowed to speak for the gaming community or moviegoing public. So, keep your opinions to yourself

      bloodsoldierZ I felt the need to make the distinction because you have the ones who only call of duty and madden, known as “dude-bros”, and you have the ones who actually invest in the world of gaming.

    • bloodsoldierZ
      bloodsoldierZ Month ago

      +Your Casual Gamer Well, since you felt the need to make a distinction between gamers, I figured "gamer gamer" must be a particular loser who plays a ridiculous amount of games, good or bad, and that's only really possible if you don't have a social life or a stable job. I think that's a fair assessment after that condescending line you tossed about the "I play games every once in a while'....gamer" which doesn't suggest anything of quality anyway.

  • John Toland Animation Games Movies

    John, its not about having a female lead is an agenda. its promoting it as such, i think you are not understanding the issue. Its not about it being a female LEAD film, its not about the film, its about the appeal to the femanists - The future is female nonsense. Imagine for any of the male led films, the title banner was the future is male - now you understand, or how abbout the future is white. etc etc. The fact is MOST heores are are male. and if you are going to adapt comic heroes. you go with whats wanted and known. and that NOT male heroes, its Superman, Batman spider man - that happen to be male. X Men has female characters. and male characters - no one cares if its male or female, they want as you say good films. its not an agenda to make a spiderman film, now making a black widow doesn't make sense. not because one is male, and one is female, but because one is popular and one is not -

  • John Toland Animation Games Movies

    If a banner headline like " the future is female" was reversed and there would be outrage at the statment ten it should not be made. Imagine the headline for Aquaman and Shazam and read "THE FUTURE IS MALE" there would be screaming from the high heavens. so if it cannot be said in the reverse it shouldn't be said at all.

    • John Toland Animation Games Movies

      I never blames MARVEL ON THE LINE or the promotion. they want to make a female lead film about one of their strongest female heroes. i say ABOUT TIME - but the media is silly, and promotions are silly. as i said if you can't say something in the reverse. don't say it at all.

    John has selective memory when it comes to the DCEU "fake deaths."
    Superman, Harley Quinn, Joker, June Moone/Enchantress & Steve Trevor all had fake deaths or brought back from the dead.

    • John Toland Animation Games Movies
      John Toland Animation Games Movies Month ago

      Your confused. its not a fake death when A tey actually DIE like Superman, andthere is an accident in the film and you don't see them die, but you assum it and they are shown to be alive with in a couple of scenes, its a fake death when the film ends making you believe a character is dead and then it turns out NO they are not dead aka Coleson, Fury, Bucky, Loki, Loki again, Loki again, etc etc - notice i didn't put in pepper cause she is not shown dead and returns in the next scene. Superman Actually dies and is resurected - ITS NOT A FAKE DEATH. harley and joker are same as peppe - not a fake death - Steve Trevor DID DIE, now his return is not explained yet so until we see resurrection, or son, or something else it is still un explained. BUT ITS NOT A FAKE DEATH - if it was he would be about 110 years old in 1984.

    Come on John think!! The main reason Tony DID NOT put Caps number from the flip phone into his main phone or a database is that it would be more easily tracked or found by someone else, like the government or even Shield?? Since it was in an older phone more than likely without GPS or external network access is that it was inaccessible from anywhere but the phone.

  • Dylan Todd
    Dylan Todd Month ago +2

    I think Tony keeping the flip phone is basically a representation of his relationship with Cap. Keeping the phone itself is a reminder of both how important Cap is to him and also the fractured nature of their relationship.

      Mike Noir I know this. But again those films were made in phase 3 which was 15 1617 to film in a cinematic universe build on success. Yes lesser-known characters can do better when in great movies however they will have never been made in the first place and it wasn't on the back of such a successful run of movies

    • Mike Noir
      Mike Noir Month ago

      +John Toland Animation Games Movies
      Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther... all lesser known properties that are financial success
      10 years ago when TDK trilogy was at its conclusion and Batman was at his peak, literally NO casuals were talking about those properties I just named above. Now casuals are more than familiar with those characters . Guardians is not alone, it's just simply the best example.
      It's not about how well-known a character is, if that was the case all of these other movies based on original stories wouldn't be mega successes and based on that logic Justice League should have been the highest grossing superhero movie of all time, but no, Doctor Strange who is way less known than Batman, Superman, Flash, Aquaman, and Flash, made more than Justice League
      It's about QUALITY. That's what the audience cares about.

    • John Toland Animation Games Movies
      John Toland Animation Games Movies Month ago

      yep, understood. but STOP using the one example which proves your point ignoring ALL OTHERS WHICH DONT - there is a reason everyone speaks of Gargians in that light, because they did what no other did. GOTG 1 is a fantastic movie. but it was made after success of lesser known characters in Ironman, Captain America, Thor, Avengers, it was the 10th film in a successful franchise. it would not have ever been made if the 9 proir films were not made first. Actually i hate on the first 8 films of MCU cause Hulk, IM2 IM3 and Thor 2 are poor. But shit the entire PHASE 2 is pretty shit. only Winter Solder and GOTG were great, anyway.

      +John Toland Animation Games Movies I don't know how many times Marvel has to prove that recognition doesn't matter. How good a movie is, is what matters.

    • John Toland Animation Games Movies
      John Toland Animation Games Movies Month ago

      Oh god i'm sure there is - which is why DC made Wonderwomen, 3rd most recognised character - but its because she is well known - not a women. Captain marvel is somewhat known so again no issues, but the suggestion you could make a black widow film before IM, thor, cap etc is nonsense - no they don't have to wait 20 films, but in marvel characters you tell me. Based on popularity in comics, what are the first characters you would make a film of.

    Political: Let's make this movie because the lead will be female.
    Not Political: Let's make this movie because this character is interesting. Oh, she's female? Not relevant.
    We don't know the intention of the studio, it's crass to assume without good evidence.
    What we do know:
    1. Females are under-represented in comic book-adapted movies.
    2. There is an untapped market of women who represent more revenue if they can be interested in comic book-adapted films.
    3. There are interesting, well-developed characters in comic books who happen to be female.
    There are strong commercial and artistic reasons to feature a female-led superhero movie. So long as they are made for these reasons and not for the sake of affirmative-action based social equality, then all that should only matter is whether the film is good. The conversation should only be about that.

    the real Question with Captain Marvel is Can a Woman lead an Earth Team of heroes, After we just found out She been working with the Kree with her own Kree- TEAM. "STARFORCE" the Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man & Wasp, are Not going follow her, Can anyone really Trust Aliens even Asgardians (Loki already proved that) That is why there won't be another Avengers Team, Spider-Man is going back to Sony, and I'm sure HULK is almost at it's END, What get's me is How young is Carol Danvers for her to have experience as a Air-force Pilot 1990 , before working with the Kree, for almost 20yrs she's been with the Kree fighting SKRULLS ? So if there is a "political Agenda" Let the Box office decide if Not Blame Kevin Feige, He wanted Captain Marvel the face of the MCU, He's not changing it for Marvel First Family?

    I want Captain Marvel to make sense and fit into the MCU. Get that right, and I'm happy. And I'll even enjoy her for being a female as an added bonus. I'm rooting for her to be a hit like Wonder Woman, which was a wonderful film. But I have a right to disassociate myself from Captain Marvel if she fails, because there's nothing worse than an attempt for representation that one feels rightfully ashamed of afterwards. I'm allowed to pick who I want to represent me, and it's not an obligation to maintain solidarity with "my kind" when there are obvious flaws.

  • Terraformer

    I'd love to see plenty more female-led superhero movies. I think the main reason there hasn't been so far is because these movies are taken from comic books that were written in the past for a different generation. Hopefully the culture is changing and new stories with cool female characters will gain prominence.
    However, the reason people accuse it of having a political agenda is the marketing. Thor was never marketed as "White male hero comes to save the day (again)". But look at all the fuss created about Black Panther being the "first black superhero movie" (ignoring Blade 1-3, Catwoman, Hancock and countless films that have featured black superheroes). Then every critic has to rate it as one of the greatest superhero films of all time, when it was actually a fairly mundane and formulaic story, had weak CGI/action sequences and was not groundbreaking in any way other than for political reasons. Note, I am not accusing the filmmakers of this; it's the media trying to jump on a virtue-signalling bandwagon.
    Don't even get me started on Brie Larson almost non-stop Twitter campaigning against 'white male privilege'. (Pot, kettle?) I love her as an actress and I can't wait for Capt Marvel, but she's really making it hard to follow her.

    Re Stark.... I think he keeps the phone because it's his personal connection to Steve - who's like a brother. It represents a personal promise.

      why is this even a question, are MCU fans really so stupid, or the universe so surface level, that they have to look into a simple phone for hidden signigence. Its a phone, an untracible phone - only stark has the number, the number is not listed, and it represents steve Rogers being a man out of time with the phones aging tech - its not rocket sciense.

      It is more than that. Remember, Cap is a fugitive at this point and that burner phone is a layer of security. It is all about caller ID and the response at Cap's end. A call from that phone will go right through to Cap with the expectation of an immediate, priority response. With the burner in play, a call from Tony's personal line would be taken as a warning that Cap's communications has been compromised and the trap is closing. Use that one flip phone, get a hero in a time of desperate need. Use any other phone to call the same number, Cap and everyone working with him goes dark and goes to ground. It is Steve's promise to Tony, but it is also a gesture of Steve's faith and trust in Tony.

      I think a part of the problem some have with her getting this award is in the nature of the title "producer". Most are well aware of the fact that the title of 'producer" spans a huge spread in participation. Where someone gets a producer credit for something as simple as making a phone call to get two people connected, and someone else gets a producer credit for being a very big and significant part of making the motion picture what it is as a finished product.
      In this regard when it comes to her I take into account what the people who have worked with her over the years have said about her skill and impact as a producer, with people like Speilberg singing her praises as a producer.
      Yeah, she's a fail as the head of Lucasfilm. That doesn't change what was already a long and successful career.

      She was a glorified secretary her first decade+ under spielberg and was never a creative force, she was always the one running paperwork. And she has spectacularly failed to do her job worth a shit in last 4 years. Firing 5 directors after thry had been on either already filming or ready to film or writing and doing pre-production for maNy months. She has cost countless millions wasted for Disney due to it as well as casts had to be repaid twice at times due to extension of filming periods. She is one of the worst executives in modern history. Even Campea who kisses her ass has stated this. You are delusional to not know that she is anything to write home about. She also has zero creativity, bankrupt mind, and now she has proven to be incompetent an unable to steer a ship over and over

    41:00 No derivative heroes? They have War Machine, which is clearly derivative of Iron Man. They also have villains which are practically derivative counterparts to the actual heroes, embodying nearly the same abilities but doing evil instead of good. I don't see why they wouldn't do such characters tbh as long as they are based in the comics and not just made up for the movies.

    It's not an agenda, but making that statement and that weird "force is female" is pandering. It's no different than Black Panther taking as long as it did. I always thought Captain Marvel and BP should have come out years earlier but I don't believe Marvel/Disney believed their base would support it. Fast forward to today, anything with Marvel Studios stamped on it will make at least half a billion dollars, so they can basically do whatever they want and tap audiences they were hesitant to go after.

    From the perspective of the majority of fans I think they feel having a female lead hero film is fine but it’s the rhetoric used to push it. Example: “The Future is Female”. Don’t make any statements about it just make a good character with a good story. It makes it look like they are pandering to a feminist agenda driven part of society.

    I enjoy female led movies very much, but I think it's a bad idea to take minor characters and give them solo movies just because they are women. For instance, Sony is getting backlash from the fans because they have been announcing a lot of minor side characters from Spiderman's universe will be getting solo standalone movies without Spiderman. Kraven the Hunter, Silver & Black, Morbius. It makes no sense to have minor characters spun off as leads. It just oversaturates the market with weak movies, and hurts the genre in the long run. To write off any counterarguments as "woman hating" is just facile. Representation is important but can't be treated like a paint by numbers filmmaking. The characters have to be organic, have to be unique and compelling, and have to make sense. You shouldn't just give a black woman Iron Man armor and call her Iron Man 2.0. The audience is smarter than that.

      It won't tank, especially not after IW. But the tagline isn't going to help sell the movie to an audience that is mostly male.
      Wonder Woman didn't use any gimmicks like that. It was just a good movie that inspired young girls that they could do it too. And given it was set in the early 1900s, they could have easily turned it into feminist agenda. It stayed classy instead.
