2020 is only 2 years away...my how far we come.

[–]spinandflux 1010 points1011 points  (108 children)

That’s the threshold of ‘the future’.

[–]Relevant_Anal_Cunt 605 points606 points  (99 children)

For Disney it really is: New Star Wars movies finished.

Original Avengers roster of the MCU most likely finished (Iron Man, Cap, Thor, GotG).

All conceivable Pixar sequels milked out (Dory, Incredibles, Toy Story).

Disney Live Action remade all the biggest hits (BatB, Jungle Book, Lion King, Aladdin. What else is possible? Ariel is unlikely. Other property not popular enough).

[–][deleted] 575 points576 points  (44 children)

You can bet your sweet ass that they will be doing Little Mermaid. They are doing Dumbo for fuck's sake.

[–]Wright87 121 points122 points  (14 children)

Wasn’t Chloe Grace Moretz attached to the live actio Little Mermaid film until she decided to take a break from making films?

[–]Chinoiserie91 107 points108 points  (9 children)

That wasn’t the Disney version. Disney one has Lin Manuel Miranda attached for music and I have not heard more.

[–]xd1936 21 points22 points  (2 children)

I had the great joy of being 9 years old when The Little Mermaid came out, and I went and saw that three times in the theater. Then I dragged my parents back and my family back to see it a couple more times.

I don't know why it changed my life as much as it did. I think Sebastian the crab had a big amount to do with it — the fact that this calypso number happens under the water just knocked my socks off when I was a kid. It had this power over me. I would perform that thing — I would jump up on my desk in fourth grade and sing that song.

Lin-Manuel Miranda

[–]Torrent21 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Dude named his son after that crab.

[–]danjospri 56 points57 points  (25 children)

I'm ecstatic for what Tim Burton is going to bring to Dumbo.

[–][deleted] 310 points311 points  (13 children)

what Tim Burton is going to bring to Dumbo.

Johnny Depp.

[–]zoro4661 56 points57 points  (15 children)

What about Mulan?

Wait wait wait - there's an Aladdin live action remake?

[–]Beryl_Yaakov 54 points55 points  (9 children)

Yes and Will Smith is the genie.

[–]LAVA_ENEMA 49 points50 points  (5 children)

We can only assume Jaden is Aladdin?

[–]Beryl_Yaakov 96 points97 points  (2 children)

How can wishes be real if our desires aren't real?

[–]LAVA_ENEMA 51 points52 points  (1 child)

But How Can Our Jaden Quotes Be Real If Our Annoying Capitalization Isn’t Real?

[–]WildBizzy 51 points52 points  (4 children)

Disney Live Action remade all the biggest hits

Mate, they haven't even crossed them over to establish the Kingdom Hearts Cinematic Universe yet

[–]Kanin_usagi 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Oh god. I’ll have you to blame when this becomes reality.

[–]Keegan320 14 points15 points  (0 children)

You to thank*

[–]fauxpunk 24 points25 points  (2 children)

The roaring '20s we'll call it!

[–]007meow 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Smash Mouth was right.

The years keep coming and they don’t stop coming.

[–]SckidMarcker 6289 points6290 points  (434 children)

3 year cycle, 3 movies, 6 year trilogy franchise. Not surprised.

[–]Oldnew_newold 2803 points2804 points  (418 children)

So, obvious. GotG made $1.63B so far. It is likely to end as most profitable "standalone" franchise followed by Ironman, $2.42B, Captain America, $2.23B, and Thor, $1.94B.

[–]GladiatorUA 1913 points1914 points  (376 children)

Thor may get a 4th movie and beat them all.

[–]jlu9001 2473 points2474 points  (186 children)

Better bring Waititi back if they do. Phenomenal director

[–]The_Fassbender 716 points717 points  (131 children)

Favourite director! Watched Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What we do in the shadows, so I can't wait to see what he has done with Ragnarok. Really pleases me to see someone from my home town doing indie national stuff to inevitably get something like Thor.

[–]punktual 377 points378 points  (95 children)

You will love Thor:Rag. It somehow still has that NZ/Aus humour in it. Probably my fav marvel movie.

[–]Red_Dog1880 296 points297 points  (93 children)

The humor was spot on at times, but I felt they overdid it a bit.

A lot of reviews call it the darkest MCU movie so far, but I just don't see it.

[–]frogger2504 261 points262 points  (38 children)

Reviewers mistaking a movie with dark events in it, for an actual dark movie. Mars Attacks! Is a movie with dark events, but you wouldn't call it dark.

[–][deleted] 124 points125 points  (34 children)

even in the dark events they were pulling jokes, which some say that's Marvel movies all around but Thor was really noticeable and a couple of times I felt like they went too far with the jokes, apart from GotG2 I think it's the only Marvel movie where I left thinking that in some parts they should've toned down the humor

[–]Martogg 138 points139 points  (29 children)

That was my biggest problem with the film. It felt like they couldn't go more than 5 minutes without feeling the need to insert a joke somewhere. As such nothing really had any emotional weight to it and frankly there was a lot of very impactful things that happened. There were plenty of scenes that should have been allowed to have some gravity to them like Odin passing, realizing that most Asguardians including the warrior's three were killed, and seeing Asguard itself destroyed but none of those were allowed to be a somber moment before a joke was thrown in and killed any impact it could have had emotionally.

[–]duph84 65 points66 points  (4 children)

It's not dark at all its more funny than dark

[–]rondell_jones 72 points73 points  (4 children)

Thor:Rag almost felt like parody at times (in a good way). I think it was self aware and poked fun at its genre, kind of like "Cabin in the Woods" by Joss Whedon.

[–]canadiancarlin 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Exactly, and it deserves to be self aware. Just like Deadpool poking fun at previous failed adaptations, Ragnarok was sort of poking fun at the seriousness of the first two movies.

In many interviews, Hemsworth makes it pretty clear he didn't like where the movies took his character and had been looking for an opportunity to change that. Obviously he did and it worked out great.

[–]AdmiralSkippy 149 points150 points  (29 children)

A lot of reviewers haven't seen the Captain America movies I guess.

[–]17954699 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Ragnarok is not dark at all. The entire city gets destroyed and Thor and Loki just crack a couple of jokes. It's a fun movie and I enjoyed it. There is hardly a down moment.

[–]tossing_rocks 15 points16 points  (0 children)

but I just don't see it.

Woah, buddy. Spoiler alert.

[–]BobtheWiz 52 points53 points  (10 children)

Now watch Eagle Vs. Shark!

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (4 children)

They wouldn’t not, not at this point

[–]TrumpsFurryAccount 30 points31 points  (2 children)

director and actor both said they are interested

[–]SB858 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure he meant they would

[–]junglemonkey47 25 points26 points  (17 children)

I'm pretty sure if they do 4 he's a guarantee.

[–]mattcolville 49 points50 points  (15 children)

I don't think that's a given, Taika has talked a lot about wanting to do different stuff and not repeat himself and he impresses me as the kind of dude who means it.

Also I think he basically turned down a Star Wars movie?

[–]Chem_BPY 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I dunno. Him and Hemsworth seem like best buds. Im sure he could be persuaded to come back for at least one more.

[–]AKAkorm 139 points140 points  (86 children)

Guardians will probably get more than three movies considering they can switch the cast around as easily as they can the Avengers.

[–]The_Faceless_Men 90 points91 points  (85 children)

They'd change the name or atleast the naming convention of "vol 2/3/4".

Ticket sales will hurt when it sounds like the 7th movie in a series.

[–]LandApeBJJ 199 points200 points  (74 children)

That didn't stop Fast 7 from making 1.5 billion.

[–]mockio77 77 points78 points  (71 children)

The Fast series is both the exception/lowest common denominator. It wouldn't work for most other franchises.

[–]Esscocia 58 points59 points  (67 children)

Seriously how man franchises have 7 movies? Star Wars and fast and furious off the top of my head and im pretty sure they are doing more than ok.

[–]MulattoLatte 144 points145 points  (32 children)

  • Friday the 13th
  • Nightmare on Elm Street
  • Saw
  • Paranormal Activity? Idk how many there are
  • X-Men
  • Star Trek
  • Planet of the Apes
  • Alien
  • Rocky
  • Texas Chainsaw Massacre
  • Police Academy
  • Hellraiser
  • Pink Panther
  • Muppets
  • Pokémon

[–]Japanese_Pornstar 106 points107 points  (2 children)

Add James Bond to the list

[–]swegen9 151 points152 points  (1 child)

You missed a big one: Harry Potter.

[–]austine567 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Only 6 paranormal activity movies so far.

[–]rondell_jones 14 points15 points  (4 children)

How many Transformer movies are there? It feels like there's at least a dozen of them?

[–]Esscocia 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I lost count around number 4 and yet they keep making them, so they must at least be making money.

[–]HearTheEkko 12 points13 points  (2 children)

There's 5. 6 with the Bumblebee spin-off soon. T6 supposedly releases June next year. There's also a prequel set in Cybertron in development.

I have a huge feeling that they'll reboot the franchise after Bumblebee and T6. Imo, they should reboot it, get new writers, a decent director, and release the prequel as the first of a new trilogy. Then set the second and third one in Earth.

[–]Welsh_Pirate 56 points57 points  (41 children)

We might get more Captain America movies, just with Bucky as Cap.

[–]FGHIK 132 points133 points  (25 children)

I don't think I'm ready to lose the real Cap yet

[–]Uncle_Freddy 130 points131 points  (22 children)

I’d still love to see a final Iron Man film with a broken Tony going through alcoholism (like he does in the comics) and Spider-Man helping to inspire him to rise up from his proverbial ashes and take on the real Mandarin.

I think I read it in a comment on another thread in /r/MarvelStudios, but seeing RDJ get one more crack at a (mostly) stand-alone film would be a wonderful sendoff to the character that started this madness.

[–]MulattoLatte 71 points72 points  (1 child)

He was dealing with alcoholism before Iron Man 2, the opening scene was changed to not show him as a mess though because it didn’t test well iirc

[–]mockio77 11 points12 points  (0 children)

He can do this all day

[–]OPTCThunderbolts 28 points29 points  (11 children)

They'd be killing the Cap movie franchise if they did that. Replacement Captain Americas never work out in the comics.

[–]nightwing2024 18 points19 points  (8 children)

These aren't comics.

I would virtually guarantee if the story was as good as WS or CW it would do fine, as long as Evans appeared in some capacity either before or after Bucky/Falcon take up the shield in flashbacks to make it seem like a real torch passing

[–]your_mind_aches 100 points101 points  (25 children)

I definitely think Thor will end up with another movie soon. Ragnarok, though it is literally The End, also felt like a new beginning. And there's no way Marvel would want to sever all ties with Taika Waititi now.

I do think the film would be less Thor-centric though. It'd be more along the lines of Thor and the Mighty Valkyries or something like that.

[–]Megaclone18 72 points73 points  (3 children)

Most likely Thor 4 would co-star Beta Ray Bill. I think he was originally supposed to appear in Thor 3 but they cut him because the role was really small and they wanted to introduce him properly. That way they could end the Thor story but still keep The Asgard and other realms story.

[–]Sempere 47 points48 points  (2 children)

He has a cameo in the film - as a statue on Sakaar

[–]Dookie_boy 6 points7 points  (16 children)

Who could be a Thor villain now we used most of them up ?

[–]Worthyness 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Out of all the main avengers, Thor probably has the best villain cast and a lot of fun story lines to play up. They have unworthy Thor, old man Thor, and God of Thunder Thor to mess with

[–]Son_of_Grod 17 points18 points  (1 child)

The Serpent seems like a good bet. I'd really love to see an adaptation of Fear Itself.

[–]HearTheEkko 57 points58 points  (18 children)

I'm pretty sure Spidey is the one who's gonna have the most profitable franchise.

His first MCU movie made almost 900M. Spidey has a ton of villains and stories to work with which means more movies. And Marvel will most likely give him at least 5 movies, if Sony extends the contract past 3 solo movies, which they'll do if each movie continues to make this much. I predict that by the time Spidey's 5th MCU movie gets out of cinemas, Sony would have earn around 4-5 billion dollars.

[–]Trappedinacar 61 points62 points  (8 children)

I think he gets one more before being replaced by a new 9 year old spidey.

[–]eharper9 1386 points1387 points  (121 children)

I wonder what songs they will have this time around. I also wonder if they'll have any older music in Infinity War.

[–]WhiteNinja24 915 points916 points  (72 children)

They likely will for one or two scenes. Or maybe since they might go to earth Peter learns about more modern music (maybe finds one that he likes or maybe makes a joke trashing it, idk).

[–]TreePunchers 550 points551 points  (10 children)

Possibly an interaction with Strange and Quill about music knowledge too.

[–]mockio77 197 points198 points  (1 child)

Can't leave Tony out of that, dude loves his AC/DC

[–]ninj4geek 79 points80 points  (0 children)

Iron Man 3 felt off due to lack of AC/DC in the film.

[–]IsD_ 274 points275 points  (3 children)

He could pick up some Beyonce from Wong.

[–]F913 64 points65 points  (2 children)

Or NSYNC from Banner.

[–]Hellguin 18 points19 points  (1 child)


[–]AltimaNEO 87 points88 points  (7 children)

Hes got a Zune, now, so presumably some newer music?

[–]RenanGreca 69 points70 points  (4 children)

I’m kinda expecting Spider-Man to show him Spotify or something.

[–]just_another_jabroni 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Scenes when he couldn't get into beast mode in a space fight because he didn't get premium

[–]Kortalh 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Leave it to Spider-Man to show him stuff on the web.

[–]Midwest_man 289 points290 points  (7 children)

I think he’ll listen to Mouse Rat while on earth.

[–]minddropstudios 175 points176 points  (3 children)

Thanos is defeated by falling in the pit. And then they all sing the "I fell in the pit, you fell in the pit, we all fell in the piiyyyiiiaaaaattttttttttt" song.

[–]Dirtysouthdabs 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Thanos you got sex hair!!!

[–]Beryl_Yaakov 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Hey, you got to clean it up for the kids. Say sex bears instead.

[–]The_Brodhisattva 84 points85 points  (1 child)

If Winter Soldier dies they all better sing "Bye Bye Lil Sebastian"

[–]Wayup_yourbutt_morty 100 points101 points  (16 children)

No older songs... He gets a zune at the end of gotg 2...

[–]mockio77 135 points136 points  (9 children)

The Zune could have been from like 2004

[–]perthguppy 239 points240 points  (0 children)

It’s a zune, so that’s pretty much the only time it could be from.

[–]eharper9 19 points20 points  (3 children)

I know but that song he listened to at the end was pretty old so maybe there's a few in the 299 other songs.

Edit: heres a link to the song https://youtu.be/leC5WE7P2To

[–]Wayup_yourbutt_morty 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Well obviously, all songs will be before the demise of Zune!

[–]stan11003 10 points11 points  (0 children)

You can put older songs in on a zune. It depends on the taste of the user.

[–]Chivocabra 1160 points1161 points  (49 children)

Does it throw anyone else off when things are announced for 2020? My first reaction is "wow, that's so far away." Until I realize 2008 was 10 years ago and I am old

[–]FinishingDutch 699 points700 points  (30 children)

Yeah. As an 80's kid, 2018 used to be a date in science fiction movies. Now it's just a regular boring sunday. Where are my goddamn spaceships and aliens.

[–]TyrannosaurusLex_ 452 points453 points  (1 child)

Where are my goddamn spaceships and aliens.

Mate, you're gonna have to wait until 2020 like the rest of us.

[–]Codidly5 116 points117 points  (11 children)

90's kid, but I still remember watching the original Transformers movie, and it's set in 2005, and I think that was the year I watched it.

[–]LivelyZebra 17 points18 points  (6 children)

the 80's animated?

oh my fave childhood film.


[–]veryInoffensive 65 points66 points  (7 children)

Avatar may even be released any year now

[–]AKAkorm 166 points167 points  (14 children)

I wonder what the team will look like by then.

[–]Worthyness 122 points123 points  (8 children)

It'd be hilarious if Gunn didn't use the current team and did an old school Guardians with the Ravagers from the end of Guardians Vol 2

[–]MessiEsque 84 points85 points  (6 children)

I think Gunn said that the current lineup's last act together will be Vol 3.

[–]gunslinger88 48 points49 points  (4 children)

Yep. He said this will be the last movie with the current lineup of Guardians and that it will set up the next 10 to 20 years of Marvel movies.

[–]havocson 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Damn MCU setting up its own MCU

[–]srry_didnt_hear_you 12 points13 points  (1 child)


Marvel's Extended Cinematic Universe

[–]SenatorGeary 159 points160 points  (4 children)

This time with 8 post credit scenes!

[–]Worthyness 48 points49 points  (0 children)

I liked that. Reminded me of the days Pixar used to play animated blooper reels during the credits.

[–]doft 1011 points1012 points  (61 children)

While watching Vol 2. all I could think about was how it was EXACTLY like the Futurama episode "A Bicyclops Built For Two".

Here is an article about it for those interested

[–]24pg13 175 points176 points  (6 children)

TIL that the Futurama episode "A Bicyclops Built For Two" isn't the one where Bender dates the ship and sings "A Bicycle Built For Two"

[–]moderndukes 65 points66 points  (0 children)

Love and Rocket with Sigourney Weaver? Now that’s a top tier classic episode, although I thought the B-plot with Fry and Leela was better than the Bender plot that episode.

[–]Bill2theE 35 points36 points  (1 child)

You’re thinking of “Love and Rocket”, which the title coincidentally is based off of “Love and Marriage”, a song played at the beginning of sitcom “Married With Children” which is referenced in the episode “A Bicyclops Built for Two”. I may or may not watch too much Futurama...

[–]lavahot 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I also thought it was that episode.

[–]FiltermySyphon 38 points39 points  (3 children)

I just watched both movies for the first time. Really dug them, but you're totally right. I instantly had the same thought and was just waiting for something to go south.

[–]BoochBeam 62 points63 points  (2 children)

To be fair, everybody knows something is going to go south. Otherwise, it would be a pretty boring movie without a plot.

[–]ParrotFightClub 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Rocket: Hey, who is that?

[–]ajohoho 876 points877 points  (25 children)

So we're getting 4 straight years of movies that feature the Guardians of the Galaxy. Noice

[–]wtf793 652 points653 points  (20 children)

We will have 9 straight years of movies that feature Captain America. Cap1, Avengers, Thor2 (cameo), Cap2, Avengers2, Cap3, Homecoming (cameo), Infinity War 1 and 2.

[–]Logan42 430 points431 points  (7 children)



[–]wtf793 117 points118 points  (6 children)


[–]Kinglink 72 points73 points  (5 children)

Even "featured" is still too strong for Homecoming. He appears as an in-joke/cameo and gets about 2 minutes of screen time (Though a great after credits scene)

[–]nepenthegram 31 points32 points  (4 children)

Just watched Homecoming for the first time last night. I think that was the best stinger we've gotten from Marvel yet.

[–]redfricker 29 points30 points  (0 children)

I felt so attacked, but it was so fucking funny.

[–]AltimaNEO 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Kinda like when we were getting RDJ all the time!

[–]HearTheEkko 27 points28 points  (0 children)

He's the "main" character of the MCU, so it makes sense.

[–]SchweppesBoy 341 points342 points  (47 children)

Great, so will get to see Guardians of the Galaxy every year until 2020.

  • 2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

  • 2018 - Avengers: Infinity War - Part One

  • 2019 - Avengers: Infinity War - Part Two

  • 2020 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

[–]316KO 131 points132 points  (39 children)

2019 - Avengers: Infinity War - Part Two

Wait, I thought Infinity War was now just one movie?

[–]SchweppesBoy 193 points194 points  (21 children)

Yeah I just wrote it as that as there is no official title for the Avengers 4 yet.

[–]Luimnigh 109 points110 points  (16 children)

Well, there is an official title, but they say they can't tell us because the title itself is a spoiler for Infinity War.

[–]PM_dickntits_plzz 99 points100 points  (7 children)

Avengers: Return of Captain America

Avengers: Thanos Victory

Avengers: Insurrection

Avengers: Mourning Stark

Avengers: Spiderman's Last Wish

Avengers: Together with her Brother

Avengers: One less Arrow in the Quiver

Avengers: New Avengers

Avengers: In Hulk's Name

Avengers: Vs the Justice League

Avengers: Return of the Hammer

EDIT: Guys...it has to spoil something from Infinity War.

[–]Mens_Rea91 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Avengers: Vs the Justice League

Batman and Black Widow die immediately and then we get three movies of flashing lights and muscley punching?

[–]Neilson509 9 points10 points  (0 children)

At least we will get to know their mothers name!

[–]Wright87 52 points53 points  (6 children)

So it’s likely “The New Avengers” or something along those lines, maybe?

[–]nepenthegram 93 points94 points  (3 children)

It's Marvel's All Your Heroes are Dead

[–]Scyrous 40 points41 points  (13 children)

It is. The idea of Infinity War being split up into two movies was discarded a while ago. The third Avengers movie is obviously called Infinity War. The fourth Avengers movie, we don’t know yet. But it’s not a “part two”.

Edit: I suggest some of you guys check out Wikipedia and the sources mentioned there.

[–]Relevant_Anal_Cunt 65 points66 points  (10 children)

Probably the title of 4 will spoil some of the outcome of 3, maybe that’s why they are keeping it under wraps.

I still remember going into that theater thinking the movie would suck only to have my mind blown. Now GoTG is one of my all-time favorite films.

[–]MalHeartsNutmeg 81 points82 points  (9 children)

I cant even remember why I went to see GotG. Never heard of it before, but damn was it good.

[–]plaforga 64 points65 points  (0 children)

I went cause of Chris Pratt. I’m a huge fan of parks and rec, and the thought of Andy as a superhero was hilarious to me.

[–]MagnusRune 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I went just because it was part of mcu. And I was like

Well They are gonna be in the infinity war movie. Better see how the look and sound. And what back story they have gone with.

Came out after seeing it like.. I want it to be

Gaudians of the galaxy :infinity war. feat the avengers.

[–]cesclaveria 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I was nervous because I really loved the Guardians of The Galaxy comics (barely could find anyone to talk about them), I was just wishing it wasn't bad but by the time the title came up I was already sure it was going to be a good time.

[–]ZeroFluxCannon 221 points222 points  (24 children)

Same! I remember seeing the trailer and leaning over to my girlfriend whispering “aww man, I guess marvel is gonna start it’s decline now...”.

I have never been so wrong.

[–]AltimaNEO 126 points127 points  (21 children)

Yeah, I think everyone was thinking the same thing. "Marvel's really reaching deep into the bag for new characters, huh?"

[–]Worthyness 122 points123 points  (15 children)

The internet did a collective "Wut?" when they announced it. Comic book fans either barely knew/cared about the comic or they didn't know they existed. Then Marvel comes in and swoops up nearly 800 million dollars. At this point, I've got no reason to doubt anything they do. They keep making (at minimum) extremely watchable films with some home runs every so often.

[–]PaulyWithADolly 55 points56 points  (1 child)

I remember thinking, “Oh great, ANOTHER Spider-Man reboot.”

Homecoming has been my favorite since the first Spider-Man with Toby Maguire in 2001. It was smart for the to pretend that the last two Sony movies didn’t exist, but also not try to do an origin story.

[–]md5423 57 points58 points  (4 children)

“Comic book fans either knew of the comic or they didn’t know they existed”... that literally applies to... everything. Like you either know something exists or you don’t know it exists lol

Never really got into the MCU, I've seen most of the movies, and was entertained by each one, but was mostly meh... good action flix, don't really get all the intertwined story lines, and dont really care.

Then one night I had a fight with my wife and went to the cheap theater to escape a bit. What's this Guardians of the Galaxy? A talking racoon? Sure, why not, its 3 bucks, cant go wrong. I was blown away. A little Star Wars, a bit of Indiana Jones, and a lot of awesome! Definitely one of my all time favs. I couldn't wait for Vol 2, and I wasn't disappointed. So here's to Vol 3, and in the meantime at least there's Infinity War.

I remember saying “no” to another live action CGI talking animal, but my mind too, was blown.

[–]Citizensssnips 381 points382 points  (70 children)

I loved the first two. Excited to see Adam Warlock.

[–]SorryCrispix 444 points445 points  (63 children)

Second kind of disappointed me, personally, but the first is a classic in my book.

[–]D-Speak 435 points436 points  (45 children)

The second swings wildly in different directions, because the story is more complex and emotional, but the humor and dialogue are so shallow that it’s often hard to find the substance of the story.

[–]ChildishTycoon_ 217 points218 points  (13 children)

YES. Thank you for putting into words the feelings I had about that movie.

The overarching plot was surprisingly deep but there were just so many moments of comedic relief that I could never get invested into it.

[–]D-Speak 84 points85 points  (4 children)

Honestly, the whole thing is like a live action Futurama episode, except for the Family Guy level comedy.

[–]form_an_opinion 681 points682 points  (121 children)

Lets hope the comedic qualities of the first one aren't further watered down in the 3rd installment. Part 2 tried way too hard to be funny.

[–]throwaway21343232242 320 points321 points  (78 children)

It was just corny. Avengers 2 was like that too.

[–]lunch77 299 points300 points  (53 children)

The worst part was they ruined Ultron.

Yes I know he was supposed to be like a bastard child of Tony Stark which is why he was written the way he was. Doesn’t make me have to like it. The tone of the first trailer for Avengers 2 was perfect.

[–]Djl3igh 172 points173 points  (20 children)

Trailer for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmeOjFno6Do

I also liked this trailer. Was hoping for a very dark movie. Ultron just full blown ruthless and cold.

[–]ledg3nd 48 points49 points  (2 children)

Ultrons arc was just a shadow of the influence he needed to have for the movie to live up to its potential. James Spader was in my opinion the perfect voice for Ultron. I just didn't like how they made his end all plan to make a meteor out of a city and end humanity. In the comics he conquered tons of nations and essentially sent avengers/humans into hiding. The avengers animated film that's called "the next avengers" or something did a good job of capturing what Ultron really was meant to be

[–]Awesomedude222 124 points125 points  (4 children)

God dammit.

God dammit. I fucking remember watching that trailer in my dorm room, thinking "holy fuck this villain is...he's fuckin awesome! He's going to really be something menacing and terrifying to watch, he's going to be a massive threat to the avengers!"

And then I saw the movie and I was like "Oh. Well, maybe the next one will be better."

Fuck, I want the movie that that trailer was showing. Not what was given to us.


[–]OklahomaJoesSHack 66 points67 points  (3 children)

That's why I'm trying not to get my expectations to high for Infinity War. The trailer looks like a more intense movie but so did the trailer for that one and they made this seemingly menacing villain crack all these cheesy jokes. Please give me an amazing villain in this one.

[–]Yiproject 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I for one am excited to see Thanos drop a quip every 5 min.

[–]BlueAdmir 49 points50 points  (1 child)

Building on that, my favourite scene of Ultron was him saying the line to Black Widow that goes like "I wanted to show you this. I... have nobody else". It does convey that it's lonely on the top feeling that was a great part of Ultron's characteristic.

[–]MagicTheAlakazam 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He was legitimately hurt when Wanda and Pietro turned on him.

[–]Cosmic-Warper 115 points116 points  (19 children)

ultron never felt powerful which was the real problem. Sure he beat up iron man a bit, but when all the avengers fought him he just summoned his army and then got shafted. He never really seemed like a big bad. Also the fact that a lot of the plot points were similar to Avengers 1 was a problem for me.

[–]mockio77 85 points86 points  (17 children)

The fact that Captain America was able to trade fists with him is a huge issue. Cap is strong but not that strong. If Ultron can be hit back by Cap, Thor or Hulk should be able to destroy him no problem.

[–]Cosmic-Warper 36 points37 points  (1 child)

exactly. Ultron should not be going toe to toe with Cap, or even Hulk. Thor should provide a challenge but that's it. Everyone else should be below him in power and I wish there was more teamwork to take HIM down. There was a lot of teamwork in taking down his operation, but destroying his real physical body permanently was done just through a beam "struggle" and hulk kicking him. Pretty underwhelming

[–]mockio77 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the final takedown amounted to nothing more than a team Care-Bear Stare, when in reality Ultron himself should have been the main threat, rather than the main threat being Ultron plus like 2,000 more robots slightly less stronger than Ultron.

[–]Radulno 46 points47 points  (7 children)

It's pretty clear by now that every Marvel movie will be full of jokes and comedy. I mean Thor Ragnarok is basically a full blown comedy while dealing with the death of Thor's father, the occupation and destruction of Asgard and such... Also Thor has become stand-up comedian during his quest about Ragnarok apparently while he was pretty serious before...

At this point, I fully assume Infinity War will be a comedy too. Civil War is the only movie that kind of isn't (still having plenty of comedic moments).

Marvel movies are just action comedies basically, it's like that since the first Iron Man, there was really no surprise that Avengers 2 wasn't all drama and serious.

[–]kenjutsudude 60 points61 points  (5 children)

They're starting to do it with Star Wars, too. The Last Jedi felt more like a Marvel movie than a Star Wars one.

[–]NiceColdPint 51 points52 points  (12 children)

As long as not every single dramatic moment isn’t undercut by humour I’ll be happy. A film based on constant quips doesn’t hold up on rewatches IMO.

[–]Neiizo 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Wow ! Hearing 2020 makes me feel like it's the future with the flying cars and stuff, but it's actually in 2 years !

[–]rileyrulesu 20 points21 points  (0 children)

By the time it gets to volume 10, it's gonna be REALLY loud.

[–]Tidus_Mino 19 points20 points  (7 children)

I do wonder if Batista will be starring if it's in 2020. He's supposedly in discussions with the WWE to return full time to the ring.

[–]weaslebubble 37 points38 points  (4 children)

I doubt it the dude is pretty serious about becoming a real actor. He did a good job in BR2049.

[–]4Eaglesf0r7Gold 26 points27 points  (2 children)

A two year wait for Warlock. I’m still saddened that he won’t be in Infinity War.

[–]MARVEL4LYFE 1907 points1908 points  (218 children)

So excited for another one of these RISKY Marvel masterpieces from auteur genius James Gunn.

Volume 2 was by far the greatest cinematic experience of 2017 behind Star Wars. I only saw 5 films last year but my taste is fine, and I know good movies.

I adored Volume 2. I absolutely loved how literally every scene was either exposition or a joke. And I also cherished how the characters would laugh at their own jokes, letting me know when I should laugh. Laughing with characters is so FUN and that's what I want from these movies. I just want FUN and SPACE and please put more NOSTALGIA inducing music in there.

Oh fuck me, James Gunn, straddle my fucking body and whisper those quips into my moist, sweaty ears. I want to experience your genius first hand.

So psyched for this!

[–]Ihaveanusername 313 points314 points  (17 children)

As much as I enjoyed the Vol 2, totally agree with what you wrote.

But you really should check out Gunn's twitter page for more golden gems.
