I think Guardians of the Galaxy will put the nail in the coffin for "comic book" movies. This comic book movie craze bubble is due to burst. I mean Hollywood is reaching making the GOTG movie. What other properties are left? Nothing left but remakes and reboots.

Guardians of the Galaxy is a strange property to get a movie treatment so soon IMO. It's not that I dislike cosmic characters or their story.. but I would have preferred something more classic first.

 

I thought that the reason they were pushing it so soon is because it tied into all of the upcoming storylines.. space aliens, Thanos, etc.. but to hear that it DOESN'T really tie into the other movies that much is very odd to me. It makes me wonder why they are making it at all..

 

other movies that should be done by Marvel Studios sooner than GoTG:

 

Hulk 2

Namor

Black Panther

Antman/Wasp

Powerman/Iron Fist

Captain Marvel

Dr.Strange

She-Hulk

 

and now Daredevil is back at home with Marvel too!

Yeaaaah. Just like Thor was going to be the nail in the coffin for comic book movies. Or Green Lantern. Or Captain America, or X-Men: First Class, or....any comic book movie that's come out in the last 5 years that didn't star Batman, according to the naysayers. There were even people predicting Avengers was going to be a bomb due to "superhero fatigue."

 

People have been claiming "The Superhero Bubble is going to burst!" for years now and it hasn't happened yet. Superhero movies aren't going anywhere. At this point, even if Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't make a single red-cent, it won't derail Disney/Marvel Studios. Not when it still has guaranteed moneymakers with the Iron Man and Avengers franchises (and to a lesser extent Thor and Captain America). Green Lantern underperforming didn't stop Superhero movies, for example, or stop other superhero movies from being among the highest grossing of pretty much every year since Raimi's first Spider-Man movie hit theaters.

 

There's also a crapload of properties left. They're just not the ones that everyone knows, because let's face it, prior to about 10 years ago, the only superheroes the "general public" really knew were Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Wonder Woman, and maybe the X-Men. Even today there are people that don't realize there's any separation between DC and Marvel characters. In any case, Guardians of the Galaxy being obscure is the whole point of the movie being made. Yes, it's a risk. Yes, it's going to have a more uphill battle than most of the other Marvel films. But if it works, then Marvel has successfully proven they can make movies of even some of their most obscure and outlandish properties and still make them profitable. So from a business standpoint, this is very much a risk worth taking. It's the movie version of "go big or go home."

Really?? Never seen anything about a dumb kid being in the movie!! I hope it's just a tiny tiny part!!!

 

Shokker what was wrong with it??

 

 

I don't wanna spoil anything but the whole movie made no sense to me and what they did with mandarin should be punished.

Yeah but GL was released when the comic book movies were hitting their stride. At that point studios were throwing whatever super hero had cache at the public while the iron (man) was still hot. The Avengers was the comic book thing peaking. X-Men: First Class was Marvel trying to get back what they lost with the dreadful X3. I'm sure the super hero movies aren't going to dry up, but seriously, GOTG? Go big or go home is a good sound bite, but when you spend a couple 100 million on a movie and it doesn't even make a percentage of that back, it sounds like bad business. The end is nigh.

I have a much higher faith that Marvel can pull off a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, then I do about DC having a profitable Superman movie.

Amen to that.

 

I'm fine with the timing of GOTG and the fact that it's "not as classic" and the fact that it will apparently not tie in to Avengers. If the final product is good, so what? If it's not, other comic movies will certainly survive.

Clearly a review about someone who isnt into comics but just into these movies. It may be the best part 3 but there isn't much you need out there to get that done, lol.

What? Are you trying to say Blade: Trinity, X-Men: The Last Stand, Spider Man 3, Superman 3, and a Schumacker Batman movie aren't stiff competition? @smilepunch@

Lol. The problem hollywood still has after all these years is the believe that sequels have to be bigger. more fun more action more villains more characters while the real deal is in the story. They overproduce themself so much that in the end they cant handle all of the elements they have.

I would think that would be more a fault of the audience. We expect the next movie to be bigger than the last. I mean once we've seen the Hulk punch out a giant flying dragon-snake thing, Iron Man duking it out with a bald guy in a clunky gray suit ain't gonna cut it anymore.

I get that. Here is how i see they should do it. Iron man for example fought iron monger in the first one. Whiplash was interesting until he got his weird armor at the end. The drones werent needed at all. It should have been more personal about him and tony. Now how do we top that? Well put the hero in a place that is totally new for him. Enter mandarin and magic to it. Its fresh and new. That makes it interesting but if you put everybody in a suit and make a joke about iron mans top villains well then you loose and thats what all these third movies are. A joke of what was actually a great idea in the comics. Yes we ask a lot too for sequels but look at batman. They went from batman and robin to batman begins. They have to change the characters but how great was liam neeson? His character was taken seriously. They went on in part 2 with a total maniac then followed by a brute. Three characters who are so different from one another. That makes it awesome to me. Sure as a comic reader one will always find something to complain about. Green goblin in spiderman had a lame costume but the movie was great and i watched it 4-5 times in theater while spiderman3 was just about jokes and no love for the actual villains. I watched it once. There is the difference.

I will say this, if they pull this off, and it's at least successful as the Cap and Thor movies were, then we could see other obscure characters get the big screen treatment!!

 

And what I mean by obscure, obscure to the gen public, not us nerds!!

 

What's the chance of an Alpha Flight movie?? Who owns the rights to them?? Anyone?

I want to see Marvel go all in on Alpha Flight, either a movie or comic. I know they killed them off at least once, but they're back now, right?

 

I like Canada.

How about Squadron Supreme? If DC/Warners can't give us a Justice League, I'll settle for Marvel's version.

 

A Richard Dragon movie would be pretty cool to. But not some half-baked low budget chop-socky. Just blow the budget through the roof. A full-on globe trotting, big-budget martial arts action/adventure, somewhere between Akira Kurosawa and Michael Bay (but in a good way).

 

The Rich Ryder version of Nova is my all-time favorite comic character. I see his movie as a trilogy with a Star Wars (Original Trilogy) type flavor. Movie one would be a straight super-hero origin story taking place on Earth. Movie two would be a full-on space-opera type thing, and movie three would bring it all back to Earth with Nova, now the seasoned hero, returning to Earth for the final battle with the big bad.

 

This was what I was talking about earlier. With the guts to make an adventure featuring a talking raccoon, and Marvel's stable of characters, there's no end to how far they could go.

Saw Iron Man 3...with what they did to the Mandarin, Id hope this was the beginning of the end...probably not...

 

also...just say no to kid sidekicks, the stupid Stark-loving news van guy, and giving extra business/one-liners to every background henchmen

 

and enjoy those extra iron man armors for the 2 minutes theyre onscreen...you saw it all in the trailer.

Hey, take it easy on the spoilers. Some of us haven't made it to the theatre yet.

About every review ive read have touched on these minor points, and they're all non-plot specific/reveals. What has been spoiled?

 

here's a spoiler about the after credits scene:

 

the real joke behind having Bruce Banner play therapist to Tony is that it seemed to take the audience a delayed 20 seconds to realize/remember that this guy is supposed to be Bruce Banner...might have helped to have a successful Hulk movie starring this guy? Oh, right...we gave up on the character in that sense. We only need him in the Avengers cuz he's one that Mom's might recognize off the bat. Also, Mark Ruffalo isn't aging well, so that doesn't help either.

Dude I would love a Squadron Supreme movie!!! Marvel needs to get in it, and deliver this before DC's Justice League!! LOL

 

Oh and the perfect guy to play Hyperion would be the actor from Worlds Finest fan film!! He's big enough and has the look of Hyperion down!!

I would bet that Marvel would never do a classic Squadron Supreme movie because of the JL. Even if WB never does a JL. People would know that the SS is a bit of a JL knock-off and it would back fire. I could see them doing in more in line with the look and "vibe" of the Supreme Power series from a couple years ago.

Remember, we're talking about Hollywood. The Squadron Supreme's status as a Justice League "knock-off" would probably help it more than hurt. Godzilla/ Cloverfield, Big/ 13 Going on 30, Back to the Future/ Peggy Sue Got Married, Batman Begins/ Arrow.

 

This is an industry where 90% of projects are green-lit purely on the strength of their resemblance to other projects.
