For what it's worth, I actually like the Corman FF better than the big-budget train-wrecks that we got. And the Hoff's Nick Fury movie wasn't that bad.
I have to agree here.
Of course, I also like the 1990 Captain America.
I even liked what they did with daredevil in that Hulk tv movie. Mostly. Thor... not so much.
If it helps maintain any cred at all, I hated the short-lived Spiderman tv series.
I can't speak to the others but the Corman FF movie was utterly awful, even keeping in mind the not-so-great pair of movies we got more recently.

The main problem with Venom is that he was treated like a secondary character. That movie did not need two villains.
Yeah, they should have dropped Sandman all he basically did was screw up Spider-Man's origin story with a crappy recont. which makes you wonder why he's sticking with the superhero thing seeing as some random guy who he had nothing to do with killed his uncle and not the robber he let get away.

It's sad that the Spider-Man cartoon from the 90s did the Venom story so much better with the shuttle and Jameson's son. They did the whole saga with three episodes. That was just a little over an hour!
I liked how Spectacular Spider-man handled it they gave the story a few more episodes.

I couldn't make it past the first 45 minutes of the Corman FF movie. I tried watching it earlier this year on the strength of certain posters on this board singing its praises (you know who you are). Horrible, horrible film.

Even once you get past the production values, everything else about it is horrible: the story, the acting, the directing, everything. Not a single praiseworthy element in the whole thing.

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

^ Yeah. I'd made generous allowances for production values. Some of my favorite films are low-budget films (e.g., Split, The Evil Dead, Primer). They, on the other hand, weren't really trying.

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

In the Iron Man 3 thread, I mentioned a "Playlist" podcast with info on IM3 that I couldn't access at work. Now that I'm home, I listened to the whole thing, and it turns out that there is all sorts of future Marvel movie info.

The first 20 minutes is about DC movies and JLA. The Marvel stuff begins at 21 minutes.

There is a ton of info and casting speculation and possible spoilers, but in brief...

Edgar Wright's supposed choice to play Ant Man is actually kind of uninspiring and would make the character too comical. The only interesting way to do Pym is to make him a bit darker (but probably hold back on the abusive husband bit).

This blog actually has some great choices to play various Marvel heroes ( I esp. liked the werewolf guy from True Blood to play Hercules) http://starloggers.wordpress.com/201...next-avengers/

The problem is that these guys have no intention of taking Hank Pym seriously; I'm surprised they haven't floated Jack Black as a potential. Stand alone movies are one thing; but I don't see Hank integrating into the Avengers if he's just the butt of a joke.

Why do you think they would treat him as a joke? Is it his silly superhero name, the fact that he turns tiny as a power, that he rides ants into battle, or that one of his best known stroylines was as a wife abuser in the comics?

Simon Pegg has the ability to play a character non comedic. Anyone see his performance in "Doctor Who"? I don't see why Wright or Black or whoever eventually gets to be the first to actually write Hank would write him as the butt end of a joke or not take him seriously.

Iron Man 3 to feature Mandarin and Radioactive Man as the villains
I know Radioactive Man is from the comics (well, a fact I only learned the other week from watching A:EMH Season 1) but how can you have a character called that and not just think of This the whole time?

This.
Exactly. That's why it's called "acting". It's been said that comedy is harder to perform than drama anyway.
