Do you think I'm really a Captain?
Do you think my name might really be Craig?
Rhodes was explicitly identified as the pilot of the War Machine armor during Justin Hammer's presentation.
Not sure if that is sarcasm or not! Of course my username has deliberate meaning. The character on Mad Men is not using his real name. I loved the idea of using it. Anyone not familiar with the show would think it could be my real name.
My mistake, but still differentiating between Iron Man and War Machine makes more sense then people not believing Stark is Iron Man despite the number of times we took the suit off and/or put in on in public.
I was not saying that people do not believe Iron Man has not been Stark. But that does not mean they are certain he is the only one who can wear the armor. The public may wonder if he has stand-ins sometimes.
One of mine is correct is all I'm saying.
You asserted our usernames are like secret identities, like the heroes should have. I'm offering an example where like some of the heroes a username isn't as secret.
Okay. I thought as much. Your first time is Captain, Got it!
Yeah I kind of assumed Craig is your actual first name.
The fun of mine is before Mad Men was more well known it could have been thought as a real name. Better than using my last name backwards as I may have in the past....
I think saying "Tony Stark's Iron Man" was just the media's way of name-dropping Tony Stark into the report a media trick to make a story more interesting in order to get people to perk up and look to the TV just when they hear his name. Not to suggest that the media or the public thinks anyone else uses the Iron Man armor. (Which Stark made pretty clear in front of a Senate Hearing he wasn't willing to do.)
Stark says I am Iron Man and then Ozzie says I am Iron Man.
It's the perfect set up.
But it didn't work out like that did it?
Secret identities make perfect sense when you are trying to fill multiple comics over decades, when you one film every couple of years that lasts two hours... I'll take more avengers please.
Is a Ms. Marvel movie in the works? (And if it is, shouldn't they call her "Captain" Marvel now?) Seems iffy to me, but thought it worth bringing up.
Yeah I don't know Marvel that well, but from what I've seen there doesn't seem to be much need for the secret identity thing with the Avengers.
If Cap or Thor want to blend in, they can just switch out their uniforms for normal clothing, as we've already seen them do in previous movies. No need to try to pretend to be someone else.
Imagine a J Jonah Jameson movie where he's just over-reacting to Avengers -shit and Spider-Shit.
At least 40 percent of Alias was just Jessica being a Hatchet Girl for Jameson.
Is the Black Panther on the way? We do know from IM2 that Wakanda is an actual MCU nation.
Signs have been pointing to Black Panther as a prime candidate, along with Dr.Strange, for awhile now.
Marvel also just recently did a Black Panther Essential. Which for those who don't know is an all b&w reproduction of a characters origin and 25-30 issues of early appearances.
Having some material collected and in an easily accessible and affordable format is one possible sign many point to for BP film.
Look how the Thanos material is red hot now. Marvel dropped the ball by not having current reproductions on the shelf there. Ebay is on fire with the stuff.
Kevin Feige is a big fan of the character and we know of Wakanda appearing on the sit map in "Iron Man 2" along with the existence of Vibrainum so this is indeed inevitable.
I don't think Marvel wanted to spoil the post-credit sequence in "Avengers" which is why we probably didn't have Thanos focused trade re-prints sooner. No doubt they will make up for this next year and onwards.
Charlize Theron would be my number one choice to play Carol, unlikely as that probably is.
They should make a Punisher movie set during The Avengers. Frank strolling around a crumbling New York, smoking looters and shooting gangsters who are incredulous at the fact Castle is still after them in the face a full scale alien invasion would be immense.
Tidbit of news about Captain America 2.
Presumably this has to be set in the 21st C. Is it going to be an overtly political story that deals with Cap's reactions to 21st C America, what he thinks has gone right and wrong? That could be interesting, but hard to pull off in a comic book action flick.
Stinking Variety limits access.
Anyone want to quote some key sections of that into the thread?
Variety isn't restricting me for some reason. Anyway, here you go:
Separate names with a comma.
