    The Marvel/Sony Superhero Movies Thread

    Marvel today released the theater dates for their upcoming movies.

    Iron Man 2 - April 30, 2010
    Thor - June 4, 2010

    The interesting bit? The Avengers is a two-parter, but combined with Captain America.

    The First Avenger: Captain America (that's what they're calling it) - May 6, 2011
    The Avengers - July 2011

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    I don't know much about these properties, but I like the idea of the release schedule for The Avengers films.

    I'm only really excited about Iron Man 2.

    Never been particularly interested in Thor.

    Captain America is a great character, but I anticipate a bad movie.

    And I'm thinking The Avengers movie will be much better in concept than in execution.


    But hey, they've just begun development stages on all of these, so I'll wait and see.

    I thought they already were confirmed. I'll wait until casting and directors are made before I make any judgement.

    The Captain America/Avengers idea sounds neat on paper.

    Well, Matthew Vaughn is doing Thor and Favreau is doing Iron Man 2. And it's looking likely that he'll take on The Avengers.

    Sweet. At least that confirms that Cap's film will take place in WWII.
    Sure why not?

    STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (Rian Johnson) - 9
    STRONGER (David Gordon Green) - 6
    THE DISASTER ARTIST (James Franco) - 7
    THE FLORIDA PROJECT (Sean Baker) - 9
    LADY BIRD (Greta Gerwig) - 8

    Cool! I like the Avengers stuff. Will be quite an unusual strategy, but it certainly has promise.

    I like sequels released in quick succession. I'm less enthused about the idea of Favreau helming all three of those films.

    yeah, that's what I was thinking too.

    Hmm... I dunno. You're thinking that because of the "First Avenger" title, right? I'd like it to be set on WWII too, but I don't know how the marketing big shots will feel about that.

    What do you think the "pissed off to orgasmic" ratio is going to be for Paul Greengrass' Captain America?

    Wait, what? Was there a rumor? An announcement? 'Cause if there's truth to this, my interest in the project just skyrocketed.

    No, just my wishful thinking. Sorry. Although I like the idea of Damon as Cap.

    The other things they would have to do to get me in the theater with him cast as Captain America are beyond mortal comprehension.

    That would make way for another trend that is already starting to happen: adapting Japanese anime.

    I'm not a fan, but I can see him in that role, especially after his performances in Frailty and Lone Star. This would help him wash away the stink of every one of those lame-assed romantic crapfests he's done lately.

    I must disagree.

    I would hate to see him in the role, since he would surely make it a clause in his contract that the costume be modified so that he's topless.

    Maybe it'd be like, Captain America body paint or something.

    And there'd be a montage of him lathering himself up with paint.

    Then another montage of him in the shower, washing it all off.


    I just can't really take him seriously.

    I agree, Frailty, Lone Star and even Contact had good performances from him, but that's before he sort of became a human caricature.
