So glad they're back.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Will Avengers 3 Be a Two-Part Movie?
It seems to make sense that they would pull out all the stops for an Infinity Gauntlet-inspired big finale to the current Avengers series; it feels like they've been building to that for a while now. So I can see this happening. I find it hard to believe they would leave an entire year between two halves of one story. If they do go ahead with this I'm guessing it will be shot back to back and released 6 months apart. Will they actually have the same title (with Part 1 and Part 2) or will they have two separate titles?

This seems like the kind of move that can essentially buy Marvel a clean slate, sort of reset with the focus shifted to newer characters, as by then actors like Downey and Ruffalo and Hemsworth will probably want to call it quits.
Whatever ends up coming of this, it's a gorgeous image that I REALLY want a hi-res version of for the wall.
That was hilarious.

Sounds like an intriguing storyline. It's a bit disappointing that it's mostly white dudes again, but I'm interested in Vaughn playing a villain role. I hope McAdams signs. She'd be a good fit. Although I wouldn't be against having Moss or Dawson in the role either, especially if it means not having to watch Biel or Ackerman, who are far less compelling performers.

This show has been on my list to watch for a while now. This would make it easy to watch all together in HD!
@undeadslayer4 Well, a smaller scale, for one. I don't think we'll be seeing any intergalactic threats in these shows, although we will probably be getting some kind of central antagonist or threat that will be the reason for bringing all four characters together.

I'm expecting something like a police/detective procedural with more comic book flare, sort of in the vein of Angel.
@undeadslayer4 Because he was an inept villain and it made sense for him to go out like a chump after causing all the chaos on the island.
Judging from last night's premiere and casting announcements for later in the season it looks like they're bringing in a lot of classic Marvel characters. Crusher Creel was really fun and I look forward to seeing what they do with him down the road this season.
@AngelCyke It's hard to tell with Beast because he doesn't look like a normal human (and you can probably fudge something about him aging slower because of his mutation), but yeah Storm/Jean/Scott would be mid-late 50s in that scene, which is definitely older than they appear.

There's a certain point you just have to roll with it, I guess. These certainly aren't the worst continuity errors in the series.
@Caitlyn-Conboy @AngelCyke

If we're buying the timeline that's been established in the previous films:

X-Men was released in 2000, but set in "the not too distant future" (which has been since confirmed as 2005).

Which means, give Cyclops' age in XMO:W, his character would have been about 40 in the first X-Men (which he doesn't look, but I guess we're taking that as the reality). But if you want to go with a mid-late 1960s birth date for Scott, Ororo, and Jean, I guess you can cast them as late teens in this movie if it's set in the 80s.

In the original timeline (as seen in XMtLS) Xavier and Erik met Jean Grey in 1985, so this movie should be set around that time if we're accepting that these "original" team members are joining at this time. However, there is a little flexibility given that in the reset post-DoFP timeline, they might not have met Jean exactly at the same time (nor even, working together as a pair).

It doesn't work exactly, but you can make it.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Deadpool Rating Not Yet Determined
They can say "f*ck" as many times as they want and still get a PG13, because all they have to do is bleep it. And the best thing about Deadpool is he can actually call that out IN THE MOVIE.

"What the [bleep] was that? Hey, why can't I say [bleep]? Oh yeah...this movie is PG13. Sorry [bleep]ers."

Sometimes things are funnier with bleeps anyway.
Classic scene.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Boardwalk Empire Star Wants to Play Black Panther
Why would Black Panther need a "New York City edge?" The character is an African royal. Williams is a fantastic actor, but he'd be better suited for a role in Marvel's New York branch, like Luke Cage.
If it's 20 years before the first X-Men, wouldn't they have to recast them as 12-14 year olds? That's way younger than anyone we've seen on an X-Men team so far (though not out of place for the age of some students we've seen at the school in the background).
"there's a place called Hell's Kitchen and in that world are characters like Daredevil and Jessica Jones and Luke Cage Hero for Hire, and those characters are not going to be involved in an inter-warfare-universe-colliding incident. That's what the Avengers do..."

That's exactly what I want out of the Defenders shows: street-level, human, small character stories.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Deadpool Will Be Rated PG-13 Instead of R
@aryaza You realize Disney has nothing to do with this, right? It's a FOX movie. If they can show Family Guy in prime time with a Teen rating, they can do Deadpool's humour with PG13. There my not be massive sprays of blood, but the level of violence you can get away with in PG13 these days is extensive.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Deadpool Creator Responds to Movie Announcement
The difference between this and something like X-Men Origins is that Fox wanted to make that movie, and this is a movie that the creators had to convince Fox to make. If they trusted that pitch, then hopefully they'll keep their hands off it and just let Reese and Werner and Miller do their thing.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Deadpool Movie Officially Gets 2016 Release!
Words cannot describe how thrilled I am. This is a movie I seriously thought would never get made. We can thank Guardians of the Galaxy for studios taking risks on weirder comic book films.
