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

Kick-Ass 2 director working on X-Force script with an eye towards directing.

That movie (X-Men/Avengers/Spider-Man) would have far too many characters.
Well, hypothetically, they would certainly need to trim the team rosters a bit for budgetary reasons alone, if nothing else. Maybe four on each side. Use only a couple of the (expensive) heavy-hitters, say Wolvie and Storm on the X-side along with a few less expensive characters (actors). For the Avengers side, Iron Man, Cap and maybe some new characters who haven't been seen yet. RDJ may prove too expensive, so you may have to replace IM with another Avenger as well. Jackman's star power could conceivably make up for the potential loss of RDJ.

Add in Spider-Man, and you have nine leads, without even factoring in the villain(s). Avengers had eight leads (including the villain) and three major supporting characters.

Then they would have to deal with the Quicksilver issue...

X-Force. Isn't that the New Mutants with bad art?

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

That is what the original X-Force was, just the continuation of The New Mutants after that series ended at issue 100 with (bad) Rob Leifield art. IIRC, the editor at the time said that the change was made because any team that lasts 100 could hardly be considered "New" anymore.

The name has been used for several other teams and concepts, especially in recent years. X-Force was the name of both of the Wolverine-led wetworks teams. Both the team sanctioned by Cyclops and the team that Wolverine kept secret. Currently, there are two teams using the X-Force--Cable and X-Force and Uncanny X-Force.

I hear Marvel will likely be going after Christian Bale next.

Hugh Jackman knows he doesn't have many more years playing an immortal and AGELESS Wolverine.

^ Aye, but perhaps the events of The Wolverine will cause him to age normally from now on? In which case, he could continue on for some time...

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

I saw that this morning. And I think this is where Marvel has kicked DC's ass, they're going by a plan that has been in play for almost a decade now, and meanwhile DC is just throwing shit at the wall and seeing if it sticks (that's not a comment on the DC movies' quality, just DC's movie making tactics).

That article does bring up an interesting point. With all these comic book movies coming out from here until at least 2021, could franchise fatigue start settling in for a lot of cinema-goers?

Being a huge comic book fan (and namely a Marvel fan) I think this is a great time to be a fan. But of course not everyone thinks like me.

It is something to think about though.

People have been saying that for years. The superhero genre is still as popular as ever. We don't have anything to worry about as long as we keep getting good movies.
