As I understand, some scribes here are also fans of the Sorcerer Supreme, so I took liberty in sharing this great news!

Kevin Feige confirms plans for A Dr. Strange movie. A short info can be found HERE.

The actor who will possibly don the sorcererís robe is Patrick Dempsey, Chris Evans, or Johnny Depp. Ryan Reynolds used to be in the ďpossibleĒ list, but thatís no longer true now for heís wearing the Lantern's ring.

[Edit]

Itís been almost three years since I started this thread, and yet there is hardly any development in the plans for this film.

So DC finally got its act together and has announced around 10 new superhero movies. Read more here .
The Cyborg movie was a surprise but IMO its a welcome one. I am also looking forward to Wonder Woman and of course the Justice League movies.

Ah thats probably a way for them to save money. After all if their TV stars become full fledged movie stars then they will be able to demand much higher salaries.

I'm looking forward to Gotham

Well lets see how that goes. Season one of that show was a bit underwhelming after all so I hope they are able to do a better job this time.
I love most of the Marvel films, but this is one aspect that i always had a problem with. Hopefully DC will do a better job in creating an integrated universe.

There's an official chronology floating around somewhere on the web, that supposedly documents the activities of the other Avengers whilst the events of a particular film, like The Winter Solider, were occurring.

Plus, there's official Marvel comic books that sometimes pick up the slack. Like the miniseries detailing the location of War Machine during the events of The Avengers and the Battle of New York.


Ah but they must have had to stretch the facts a bit. What could be more important than an alien invasion or hydra taking over the world after all.

Well, the Mandarin's growing reign of terrorism against the US, for one. That's why War Machine wasn't in The Avengers, according to Marvel. Because he was investigating -- on behalf of Stark and SHIELD, the Ten Rings organisation in the Middle East, and the Mandarin's network of terror-agents.



OK so maybe he was busy in the Middle East or something. The relative merit of preventing terrorism compared to fighting off a full scale alien invasion is debatable but lets not get into that.
I wouldn't be so quick to discount the threat posed by the Mandarin. Those Extremis enhanciles had the potential to become one of the most, perhaps even THE most, world-based threat any of the Avengers or SHIELD could face.

Capn America 2 was a great movie but not without its flaws , the plan was overly convoluted and some more superhero back up could have easily been provided. I mean where was Hawkeye or Iron man? Both of whom are intimately involved with SHIELD.

There's rumours that Barton's absence during The Winter Soldier will be partly explained by Season Two of the SHIELD television series. Which makes sense... considering that the second half of the first season of that show pretty much served as a side-sequel of sorts to The Winter Soldier film.

Finally got to see Guardians of the Galaxy, which I quite enjoyed. My wife liked it, too, and she was iffy about going to see it.

I liked the disclaimer in the credits -- "No raccoons or plant creatures were harmed or killed in the making of this movie."

Sure maybe they show up late for something but if we dont even get a glimpse of them or at least a news report saying something on the lines of the Hulk is busy smashing Hydra agents in New Mexico and cant come to the party. Then people feel that its not very realistic and frankly most of the audience has never read a comic book in their lives and has no intention to start now so are completely unaware of the tie in books that attempt to justify their absence.



For them to be able to fly down, they would have to know what was happening and be free to do something about it. If someone is off-grid or simply not paying attention, then yes, the entire Battle of New York could have been over before they even knew about it.

Personally, I assumed that like Elminster and the Chosen, they can't always drop everything and rush off to the next crisis. It's not like there's only one city in the entire world, and only one set of bad guys.

It's not like those things were on a published timetable. The Battle of New York began and ended in a single day; it likely wasn't more than a few hours. Ditto for the Hydra takeover.

True enough.

I've always been curious about the idea of Marvel producing a Iron Man/Hulk team-up live-action film. Considering the long and established "working together/against-each-other" history they have in the comic books, this wouldn't be totally without precedent, after all.

I'm just rambling. GotG was fantastic! Here's hoping Adam Warlock has more of a place in the cast for the sequel.



All of the Phase 2 films broke that tradition.
Not quite. Of the films you listed, the end-credits scenes still hinted at upcoming films. Iron Man 3 was the first to set just a scene between characters that didn't really lay out any hints for future films.



At least, that's what we think right now...
The Sage Posted - 03 Sep 2014 : 03:49:05
Sorry. Probably should have made myself clearer.

I understand now! *cough*
I misunderstood your meaning, and in that case you are correct.

I saw "As Above, So Below" Sunday afternoon. The whole time the protagonists are in the Catacombs of Paris I kept thinking, there is a real-world parallel to Undermountain, or the Dungeon of the Crypt (or any other fantasy dungeon ever created under a medieval metropolis).

Great movie BTW, if you can stand the shaky cam, found-footage style of film-making.
Roseweave Posted - 22 Aug 2014 : 00:23:42
i can't think of any really good fantasy films tbh but i'm always open to recommendation. it's just a hard thing to do right i think. like a straight up D&D-ish fantasy with all the common tropes, they can't even get the generic stuff right generally let alone fun and interesting takes on it.

Im hoping the end credits scene means that Comrade Cosmo will be on the team in the next go around
