    Hulk Smash is not a bad title. In fact I quite like it. It's certainly better than Batman Forever, Batman Begins and Avengers Assemble as far as cheesy titles go.

    Thanks! I actually love the idea. Kids who loved the Hulk in The Avengers would talk to all their friends about it on the playground just based on the title!

    I'm a guy who says "Hulk smash" at least once a day and has been since I was seven years old. My two year old son roars like the Hulk and screams "Hulk smash, graaahr!" damn near every day as well. You can kinda see why that title would appeal to me. :D

    I go on about it too.

    but have you read the book where it happened?

    Hank was in the middle of a super villain rant about how the Avengers would love him and invite him back if he defeated, SAVED THEM from a giant supervillian robot he had invented to "all but nearly" destroy the Avengers, which is when Janet tries to explain to him that he's batshit and should take a chill pill... So he slaps her.

    Once.

    Janet Van Dyne is professionally beaten up for a living, by gods, monsters, robots, mutants and aliens.

    I mean sure it's a betrayal, she trusted him not to be a crazy asshole, but Janet was slapped once by a crazy person in the middle of a pinky and the brain scheme to become leader of the Avengers and probably next the World, I don't think that really the audience is taking the big picture into account here.

    A giant fucking killer robot sent out to kill.

    However.

    It you want to talk about the Ultimate Universe?

    Yup, that's your standard asshole laying into some one smaller than he is to feel powerful when he is clearly aware that he is not. Text book.

    Which is why I cheered when Captain America stood on his face.

    That title would probably be in the running. The sequel could be Hulk Smash Again, followed by Hulk Smash (insert noun of choice here).

    I want a Cable/Apocalypse movie, dammit!

    Ooh, or what about Silver Surfer?

    ^Sadly, Marvel Studios doesn't own any of those characters.

    Lame.

    I really don't know much about Marvel beyond the 90s FOX cartoons of X-Men and Spiderman. In fact, these recent movies have been my only exposure to Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America. I don't even know what other characters are out there.

    Marvel apparently does own Cable, from what I've read. But he's kind of pointless without his connection to the X-Men, IMO.

    Actually, and I know it can't happen right now, but since The Avengers and Thor have clearly established the existence of aliens, I would love to see a rebooted version of the Phoenix Saga to fit into that universe. Bring on the Shi'ar and giant star-eating firebirds!

    I actually prefer having the X-Men movies in their own, separate universe. I wish the comics were the same way. I also don't mind Spider-Man being under Sony's control, since I prefer Spidey on his own. If it were up to me, I'd split the big Marvel properties up like so:

    Marvel/Disney: Avengers, Fantastic Four, SHIELD, etc.
    Fox: X-Men
    Sony: Spider-Man and Daredevil (so that they can share the Kingpin)

    Yeah I agree about X-Men being a separate universe (if only because the mutant concept doesn't really work as well when there are so many other, traditional superheroes out there).

    But I definitely love the idea of Spidey, FF and Avengers being in the same universe. They all share the same fun, comic booky style, and seeing them all onscreen together would just be too awesome for words.

    Please don't ever say the words "stroke" and "Rob Liefeld" in the same sentence again. :p

    One wonders what Spidey was up to when Loki and his alien army were destroying New York. Maybe he was taking pictures.
