Upcoming Marvel Comics movies


You would think that after bombs such as Daredevil and Electra Marvel would be slowing down production of movies based on their comic books. However according to Marvel’s 2005 third quarter results we can expect plenty more bombs from the company who needs to concentrate on maintaining a higher level of comic books, rather than a higher level of cash in their giant money bin.

In 2006 we can expect at least 3 financial disasters to be played out on the big screen:

X-Men 3
May 26, 2006 (Currently filming): This will surely be the worst of the X-Men trilogy. Of course if I were a positive person I would say it has the potential of being the best: new director, new characters, new writers. But I doubt this is going to do X-Men 3 any good. After all the people lined up for production of this flick aren’t the cream of the crop. You can read my full rant on the matter if you’d like.
Ghost Rider
July 24, 2006 (filming completed): A lesser known character, Ghost Rider has the potential to be rather intereseting, but will no doubt crash and burn (big pun intended).
The Punisher 2
Fall 2006: There was a Punisher 1?? No seriously, I can’t believe Lions Gate and Marvel would waste their time on this one.

Next year there are 2 movies definitely slotted for a release:

Spider-Man 3
May 4, 2007: I know a lot of people are most likely looking forward to this movie. I am not one of them. The first Spider-Man was great, despite changing various aspects of the story from that of the comic book. The second movie was a disaster in my mind. The scenes of Peter Parker’s happy fun-time walk to school after losing his powers destroyed any seriousness the movie had attempted to build… or was it the elevator scene that ruined it? Or perhaps the fact that Doc Oc had the freakin’ sun in his lab?!
Fantastic Four 2
July 4, 2007: The first movie was terrible… one of the worst Marvel movies ever made. I can’t imagine what warrants a second try.

More movies that are in the pipeline, but don’t have release dates yet include the following:

Silver Surfer
I’m actually looking forward to this one. Silver Surfer is a character with a lot of depth and could make for a very interesting movie. The problem is Galactus will undoubtedly be computer generated and end up attacking New York or Tokyo.
Wolverine
Yep, Wolverine… an actual full length movie dedicated to the most over-used X-Men character. Count me out for this one.
Deathlok
You’re kidding, right? A Deathlok movie? Well, why not. After all they’re planning on making…
Black Widow
This should be released as a double feature along side Deathlok at select drive-in theaters. That way people could at least make out during them rather than just fall asleep or walk out.
Hulk 2
Because the first one was such a success?
Namor
This could be cool if it’s done correctly… but it won’t be. There will most likely be some kind of Green Peace sponsored message behind the over all theme of the movie.
Iron Man
Now this will be a good movie, provided they set it up the same way the original story was set up: in the vietnam war. Iron Man is a cool character with a cool theme. Just don’t screw it up, Marvel!
Thor
Thor This could really go either way. At first though Thor sounds like a great idea, but I just can’t get the image to the left out of my mind. If it goes the way of the 70’s it’s doomed to failure.

The list above, according to Marvel is only in part, which means there could be plenty more chances to waste your money on box office flops. People wonder why the movie industry is faltering. They blame it on pirating and big screen TVs. Before pointing the finger Holywood needs to look in the mirror. Let’s get less sequels and more innovative storylines. Just because a few comic book movies were a success (Batman Begins, Spider-Man 1) doesn’t mean that you should run out making movies out of obscure characters that no one cares about.

  1. Black Panther is also on the drawing board (renamed to just “Panther”) in script-writing stage.

    Deathlok was a cool comic concept, and that’s why the idea has been copied and reworked a dozen times in films already (Terminator, any cyborg flick). I honestly can’t see Marvel using this used-to-death idea in a unique way.

    Iron Man will suck. I don’t have specific, cohesive reasons to cite, just a strong gut feeling that they’ll go too far into camp or junior high school level writing to “reach the broadest possible audience” when they should focus on more mature themes–which today’s more informed teens will understand too, all on their own, without being pandered to.

    Thor: I’m with you there. I can’t stop thinking about the bumbling, campy Thor character from the “Return of the Incredible Hulk.” (By the way, it was circa ’85, not the ’70s).

    Making a second Punisher flick is foolish. It WILL flop, and that will damage not only film industry’s goodwill toward silver screen adaptations of Marvel’s properties, but also the entire comic-to-screen subgenre.

    Black Widow… If they do this right, it could be a decent action-spy flick.

    Which brings me to: S.H.E.I.L.D. This would, in theory, make a great film–with sequels and spin-offs. It’s also a generation bridger because may of the Boomers read “Nick Fury and his Howling Commandos” (I might be wrong about the title).

    Just my rambling 2 cents.

  2. You know, you bring up an interesting point re: SGT Fury and his Howling Commandos into S.H.E.I.L.D. That could be grounds for a television series or even a few movies. You could use the same actor as you traverse time, seeing as how Nick Fury ages slowly, etc.

    Just don’t let the Sci-Fi Network get their hands on it. (again)

  3. I wrote an entire storyline for an Iron Man movie a few years ago. I wouldn’t exactly call it a script (I’m a book author, not a screenwriter, and don’t really know how to write a script), but it was a very visual… pre-script, you might call it. I never tried to get it into anyone’s hands because, well, I never thought they’d read it. Also, because I figured, once Hollywood go ahold of a decent script/pre-script, they’d infuse whatever crap into it they wanted anyway.

    I assume you’ve heard about the trials and tribulations of the Superman script and how Hollywood idiots wanted to strip away Superman’s powers, make him an Earthling, and make him fight the giant metal spider that ended up being shoehorned into the “Wild, Wild, West.”

  4. I read earlier today that Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim had been optioned by Universal. Normally I’d groan as well, “Oh no. Another indie comic ruined by the Hollywood machine.”

    BUT, it seems Edgar Wright, director/co-writer of Shaun of the Dead and director of Channel 4 sitcom Spaced, was optioned to be at the director’s helm. This could be good. But who knows? Perhaps Universal will decide that it needs a “radical” catchphrase, CGI Gen-X animal companion, or a giant metal spider.

  5. Pretty cool site. I read all the “opinions” etc… I don’t get it – basically you hate about 80% of whats been put out PLUS you see the future flicks as most being garbage? 3.6 Billion gross for the first 12 movies…flops??? Again , you gotta back up what you mean by flops dude. HULK GROSS 357 million…what else do you want?

  6. well i stumbled across this site and thought it might have something interesting on it guess i was wrong. for u to sit there and say spiderman 2 wasn’t as good as the first you’re a friggin idiot. the goblins costume was terrible. though the story did follow the book pretty well. most books that are turned into movies are much different than the books. somethings are better changed anyway. its a friggin movie just watch and enjoy it. if u wanna talk shit about a terrible comic movie than talk about Spawn that was a disaster

  7. actually with the way ur crying and bitchin about every movie. why do you have a comic book site? if ur not a fan then shut the hell up and create a decent site like one for cry babies

  8. yeah it is a comic site but you’re talking about the movies so you’re the idiot. and if you can read i said comicbook site. and yes i also said the books are different than the movies …so you need to learn how to read. i rest my case. deduct a point for everytime you watched broke back mountain

  9. also if you can read i was talking about the first spiderman thank you. and yes x-3 did suck but on my home page you won’t find me crying and bitchin about stuff. and as for spiderman 2 despite what you say was better than the first reguardless if it didn’t follow the book. hey its a movie. who cares

  10. i just want to say that alot of these movies might have not been great and what we had hoped. movies are different than the books. thats just how it is. alot of these movies were still entertaining though and some of the best out there today. the only reason hollywood is doing these movies is because they can’t come up with anything on their own. thats why we see all the remakes. and joe i hate to say it batman begins was a flop compared to some of the others. and the numbers show it …the spiderman movies grossed more than the rest of the comic movies out there. not only that they are more up to date than the old doc ock stories you are talking about. all i really have to say is….they can’t please everyone

  11. I agree with everything bill and bigb say about these movies. If you don’t like them, then don’t cry about it. Go crawl back to the hole you came from and stay there. I think Marvel has done awesome with all their movies, and I’m look forward to more and more. I hope to see Punisher 2, DareDevil 2, Spider-Man 3, and Ghostrider because their awesome characters. If you want to cry about it then do a damn movie site. If you’re a comic book fan you would love most of these movies, but I do agree that X-3 wasn’t very good. That’s the only movie I was disappointed with.

  12. I think you should quit running your mouth and get a bottle and suck on it awhile Joe. If all you do is bitch about comic book movies, then don’t go to them. For your information Batman Begins sucked. I was trying to not fall asleep while watching the movie. I just hope if they do another one it has more action. Go Bigb and BigAl tell him the truth. I hope you jump off a mountain Joe. Have a good one you idiot.

  13. I don’t like what you are saying about a lot of these movies Joe. I believe comic book movies are the only thing that is great in Hollywood right now. I’m looking foward to Spider-Man 3 and Ghostrider. I agree with everything Bigb and BigAl says.

  14. Who gave this guy webspace to shit all over?
    He clearly has no idea what he’s talking about. Marvel has been doing very well with a couple exception. Yeah Elektra sucked and Daredevil too (Affleck?!) But Punisher did very well in DVD sales and F4 was very well done depsite dipshits comments. And hating Wolverine before its even released because he’s a popular character. Don’t deprive yourself of good material just because its popular you self righteous, negative, whiney bitch. Yeah, you’re cool.

  15. I’m not really a huge fan of all these movies based on comics.

    I fell asleep 5 minutes into Punisher. I’ve seen about 30 minutes total of all the Spiderman movies.

    Maybe I’m too old to really enjoy these movies. It seems like a lot of these Marvel movies are made for kids.

    I always did like Silver Surfer and I’d actually like to check out a Silver Surfer movie.

    Also with the X-Men 3 or 4 or whatever number they’re at now, Josh Holloway from LOST will be playing Gambit. I’ve always like Gambit and I’m actually looking forward to seeing him in the upcoming X-Men.

    For all the FreakComics.com haters:
    You’re entitled to your opinion. But attacking the author because he doesn’t like what you like is a huge fallacy of logic. Why can’t you agree to disagree, rather than attacking this author, and making yourselves look like the fools?

    Whatever happened to good, logical debate?

    I happen to agree with the author of FreakComics.com for the most part. I don’t like most of these comic based movies. I choose not to watch them. They bore me. Maybe it’s because I’m not 14. Maybe it’s because the movies suck. I guess I’m being a “whiney bitch” now, too. Right?

  16. Fuck you fucking fuckers, For one thing you pieces of shit wouldn’t know a good movie if it bit you in your lazy, virgin, parents basement living asses. The comic book movies are adaptations and the comics, not the actual comics. If the creators want it the way it came out, hey, its their’s to do what they want with. They have the money and the talent. Now Punisher for one thing was a good movie, ya they kinda skipped around a bit but it still portrayed what they wanted to. Thomas John did an excellent job. Now on to Namor, you think this will be a good movie, HA! Namor is just a Aquaman ripe off, ya DC doesn’t have many good comic except Batman but still they made Aquaman first. Next, Well Thor’s first appearance in movies was a terrible one ya, but it was the fucking 80’s. Godzilla was terrible back then too. Now they could make him decent. Finally on my nice rant ,because Im sure this will be deleted quickly, Wolverine is a complex character that is now getting his due attention. Ya the movies have brought him into the major spotlight and could focus even more then they did on the other mutants like maybe Gambit, but he needed it. And Hugh Jackman is a incredible actor who, because of X-men, is getting the leading roles he always deserved. Now I am going to get offline and join the real world, and make my movies to piss you people off, Peace out bitches*
    PS – You should never judge peoples works if you have nothing but a website to show for yourself

  17. Adaptations is just that adapted, but as comic fans or a fan of any original material that is then adapted, one looks for some form of the esence or soul of the original, thats why critics and fans have a job to do to share there opinions in the vein hope that these adapters will do there best.

    I liked Pariah’s comment on the content of scripting and underestimating teenagers understanding of a more mature dialogues and themes.

    The two that you site are good comic films, but I would also include The Hulk I thought Ang Lees take on the comic genre and editing was well observed.

    I saw the tralier for FF – Rise of Silver Surfer and thought it was S***hot, thou we will still have to wait and see. I’ve always been a big Silver Surfer fan and it looked cosmic.

    I enjoyed all the critical views of the films, sarcastic and some are even dare i say witty.

    I think a few that have posted here need relax and learn to get there point or disagreement across a little more eloquently,

    Anyway heres to you all, oh and Silver Surfer cos he rocks. Take it easy

  18. The problem is that they cater to the teeny bopper crowd. The Fantastic 4, Daredevil, Hulk, Elektra, were all terrible and now Ghost Rider is the same. They put in eye candy and think automatically it’s a hit. Look at the Batman series. Spiderman has got it and now they look to better stories. Super heroes have problems too and to look at them as the comic books do would make them more money. They need to stop acting like we’re all 13 year old cheerleaders and realize that if the movies had substance, we’d go for it big time.

  19. Well I thought ghostrider was a good movie, it covered what it could for a less than two hour movie, plus I like Nicolas Cage, but anyway you also have to remeber that comic movies can only cover so muc in such little time, and they did cover the 1st things in most of them, but I CAN see about batman, spiderman(Cept 3 IS looking good). ANd I can also see why they’re not getting more money because of there independence from the comic, but I belive they do a good job. considering all the matirel they have to use, and drop. (P.S. there are some movies I can’t forgive though, DareDevil, Hulk come to mind, bad acting and worse story)

  20. All the Comic book movies really suck, so do comic fans. Video game movies, like mine are the real money makers and please the fans. My newest film, Postal, will make many fans happy and bring more video game players into the theatres. Although you can never get the comic book-trekkies out of their mothers basment.

  21. jeezus hulk 2 is going to be freakin horrible i fell asleep in the first one it was so bad and the only good movies on there that are comin out are silver surfer, and spiderman 3. but you know wat would be a good movie one about deadpool

  22. The only good recent comic movies that have been produced are x-men 1, spiderman 1, and daredevil. Not only are the other movies horrible but I’m sick of everyone walking around thinking they know shit about comics because they saw a fucking movie.

  23. Oh, and by the way, Uwe is a pussy ass bitch. Postal sucks dick as well as that fucking illiterate cocksucker Uwe. You can go fuck yourself straight up the ass.

  24. Baron can also fuck himself. Aquaman is the ripoff dumbass, Namor was made first, fucking retard. Both the 1989 and 2004 Punishers were pieces of shit. You are the exact kind of person I hate, you see a fucking movie and you
    act like you know everything about comics but you don’t know shit.

  25. No, you’re the john that’s going to get banned if you don’t stop posting ignorant comments.
    If you’re talking about me being the kind of person you hate, then you’re a moron. I read anywhere between 30 – 50 titles a month and I really don’t care for comic book movies.

  26. No, you aren’t the kind of person I hate, we are one in the same. What I am sick of is the exploitation of these characters (not that they were some underground thing to begin with) to the jock losers who think they know everything about comics just because they see a few movies, despite the fact that they have never picked up a comic.

  27. People… Relax… they are just movies…! I also read 10-20 titles/month, including Ghost Rider, Spawn, Daredevil, but I really did not like Ghost Rider, Spawn or Daredevil as movies. There is no point bitchin’ about it tho.

  28. Well I apologize for my rant but I was furious at the time. I thought Daredevil was the best of all the Marvel movies and I liked Spawn (although I don’t know why).

  29. Well from a comic view, deardevil was great(but as I said before, the acting sucked, I also hated the elektra spin off they did from it.) As for Uwe and Baron, I know who you are dumbass and you need to stop acting like a know it all. BTW I am the 1st john.

  30. the daredevil comics are good but i think the movie suked. i h8ed the whole elektra thing too.I heard that venom might get his own movie and hopefully hell fight carnage and the other symbiotes like scream, toxin, or hybrid. Or i hope its mac gargan (scorpion) as venom.(scorpion turns too venom wen he is doing a deed for norman osborn)

  31. well id just like to say that i enjoy most of the comic book movies, few exceptions being daredevil, hulk, elektra. however spidey 3 was a let down but i felt left a lot of promise for the 4th, hopefully getting further into a venom character(somehow) and bringing in karnage. fantastic 4 wasnt a terrible movie, it was actually kind of entertaining when i watched it on dvd after a bunch of people such as yourselves saying how bad it was. the punisher was also pretty good. there are a few aspects of cornyness in the acting and dialogue, but i think directors/writers put it in to try and give it the comic book feel (however horrible it may be). HULK IS NOT A SEQUEL, they’re redoing it because the 1st one was such a bust with a different director, and edward norton as the hulk. ironman looks promising although im not sure i can see robert downey jr as iron man.. but we’ll see

  32. I’ve been a Thor fan since I was a kid and still am. I think a “Tales of Asgard” movie made kinda like the “Lord of the Rings” would be great. Then a sequel can be Thor as Don Blake. I think the guys who did that shitty flick back in ’85 should be burned alive! Maybe Paul Walker or Brad Pitt could be good leads for Thor. I mean, mortals, mutants, and aliens are fine. But a God becoming mortal? Man, that’ll be so cool!

  33. The animated Batman, Superman, and Batman Beyond series that came out during the 90’s are a BILLION times more mature and more intriguing than the recent list of Marvel Comic adaptations(aka 100% pure garbage) that Stan Lee has allowed to litter the theaters in the past 10 years. Total. Friggin. Sell-out.

    It’s understandable that young people think crap like Ghost Rider and Fantastic Four are good since they’ve been brought up on a steady diet of unoriginal, lip-synching, MTV/Reality tv produced ‘entertainment’. The vast majority of comic-to-movie adaptations have been nothing but uninspired, easy money-grabs for Hollywood studios and so many morons eat it up, happily. I have no hope for a good comic book movie unless it’s Batman or it’s made in the UK.

  34. Joe: I’m glad you qualified your sentiments with a reference to Batman Begins. It’s really the only comic book movie worth watching, and honestly I have high hopes for The Dark Knight.

    Also, thanks for your well thought out comment, I agree with you completely.

  35. I didn’t see if anyone spoke on this…but IRON MAN definitely will NOT suck! I saw the comic-con trailer and it’s definitely more along the mature themes route and not camp at all. Robert Downey Jr. is awesome as Tony Stark and ILM KILLED with the effects they show him flying @ mach 1 in a flight pattern with a few jets and even if you aren’t an IRON MAN fan I think you’ll just think it looks cool. They nailed it. Hulk will also very likely be great this time!

  36. g.law:
    I hope you’re right! I saw the teaser trailer also (the leaked version on the internet) and it definitely looked cool. It’s hard to have a lot of hope these days for any comic book movies, but Iron Man looks worthy of a chance.

  37. 1ST OF ID LIKE TO SAY GROWIN UP IN THE 70S I ALWAYS DREAMED OF MY FAVE COMICS BEING MADE INTO MOVIES. SPIDEY,FF,HULK,ETC. THE 1ST 2 SPIDEY FILMS ROCKED. THE THIRD, I ALWAYS SAID THAT VENOM WOULDNT TRANSLATE WELL ON SCREEN. I WAS RIGHT! SANDMAN ROCKED BUT VENOM SUCKED. THE HULK MOVIE WAS TO HEADY FOR ME AND MAKIN BANNERS FATHER THE ABSORBING MAN WAS STUPID ANG LEE SHOULD HAVE BEEN SHOT. THE GREEN GALOOT LOOKED LIKE A ROIDED UP SHREK HE WASNT PHOTO REALISTIC ENOUGH TO RUBBERY. DAREDEVIL SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE MOVIE THAT LAUNCHED MARVEL NOT BLADE SHIT THEY COULDVE MADE A DAREDEVIL MOVIE IN THE EARLY NINETIES NOT MUCH SPECIAL EFFECTS FOR THAT CHARACTER. THE XMEN MOVIES WERE ALSO A DISSAPOINTMENT SINGERS VERSION HAD THE SENTTINALS. FUCKIN RHATNER THAT HACK HE RUINED IT WITH THAT STUPID PHEONIX SAGA. AND KILLING OF THE PROFESSOR WAS BLASPHEMY. TIM STORY? ANOTHER ASSHOLE WTF THAT SURE WASNT CGI AT ITS BEST. THE SEQUAL WAS AN IMPROVEMENT BUT ONLY BECAUSE OF SURFER. GALACTUS A GIANT SPACE FART? AGAIN WTF!!!!!!!! ELECTRA SHEESH OMG THAT WAS BAAAAAAD. NUFF SAID IVE SEEN THE SHELLHEAD TRAILER AND YA KNOW WHAT? DOWNEY LOOKS FIT FOR THE PART THE EFFECTS LOOK GOOD 2. OK OK OK ON TO FUTURE MARVEL PROJECTS…LUKE CAGE? HEELLLLL NOOOO LEAVE IT ALONE. BLACK PANTHER AGAIN NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! AND THIS RUMOR ABOUT IRON FIST DARTH MAUL LOLOLOLOL NOPE UH UH BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE JET LI OR DONNIE YEN AS SHANG CHI AND HAVE LAU KAR LEUNG FROM THE FAMOUS SHAW BRO STUDIOS TO DIRECT AND HAVE HIM ALSO CHOREOGRAPH THE FIGHT SCENES HES A WAY BETTER CHOREOGRAPHER THAN YUEN WO PING IF U DONT BELIEV ME CHECK OUT HIS LATEST KUNG FU FILM THE DRUNK MONKEY. WELL THATS ALL FOR ME PEEPS IM OUT ID LIKE SOME FEEDBACK ON SOME OF MY COMMENTS. OH AND NO DISSIN OK? ITS JUST A FUCKIN MOVIE GUYS LET IT GO LOLOL BE EASY FELLAS

  38. Eli:
    thanks for your comments, but I almost deleted it thinking it was spam. You shouldn’t type with all caps and should consider paragraphs as an option.

    As far as what you had to say: I agree with most of it (although I’d choose to say most of it differently).

    Iron Man definitely looks good, but I’m not holding my breath. Marvel has done nothing but disappoint thus far.

  39. well hi guys its Eli again just thought id put in my 2 sense about some upcoming DC movies. 1st though id like to comment on Batman Begins. In my opinion it was extremely well made Christian Bale is a perfect choice. He was great. Raas al ghul was cool i like the twist in the film. The sequal with Ledger ok well ive seen him in makeup… not really impressed at all i mean cmon if Nolan wants to stress realism in the franchise thats fine and dandy but why is the joker now some dude with a friggin Black Dahlia scar. Guys i dont even think his skin is bleached. wtf!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Superman…. Visually it was stunning, story wise though uh uh. 1st off what is it with makin Supes so sappy geez. Giving him a son? Singer dissapointed me but ill tell ya with 2days cgi they made him look powerful when he landed on the fortress like a lightning bolt. High cool factor. like i said effects were great. The story sucked. Rumor has it well be seeing Braniac for the sequal. Lets just hope they dont go into that Doomsday crap because theyll ruin it. I am happy to learn that they just signed a director for the Green Lantern film. Now thats what im talkin about this movie is destined to kick ass. I am also glad they signed an unknown to play Kyle Raynor. Gentlemen we have the technology to pull it off imagine the space battles Oa, The ring, the Corp just think of the possibilities. ok now to Wonder Woman………DONT DO IT PLEASE. Remember electra? I hate to say it but…. female superheroes usually tank at the box office. Besides if Linda Carter does not play Queen Hyppolyta then they need to leave Diana alone. Last but not least is my all time favorite super hero team The Justice League. This movie if made and done right will probably be the most succesful superhero movie to date. Routhe as Superman, Bale as Bats, Ryan Reynolds as Flash, Tyrese as Lantern, Angelina Jolie as Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman Katherine Zeta Jones, Vin Deisel Jon Jonzz

  41. i have to say this about the hulk sequal….I cant wait 1 word guys ABOMINATION…. Were gonna see harryhausan type battles done with cgi oh man and to think i hated the 1st one but i got a real good feeling about this. Ed Norton is a much better choice than Eric Banna. Norton looks a whole lot geekier and i also heard that this is gonna be the GREY HULK ha ha ha that means hell speak. well Joe lets take a wait and see approach lets not be to quick to judge bea easy my dudes

  42. I think your a fucking looser and you don’t know what a good movie realy is. Every Marvel movie has been an awsome movie for all ages and they will continue to be. I think you need to shut your fucking mouth, and quit bad mouthing good movies and the ones to come. If you have anything to say to me, e-mail me back and I’ll be glad to tell you how much of a bitch you are, and how much people hate your stupid comments on there favorite movies!

  43. Hey Ben in my neighborhood tlk like that can get u fucked up o.k. so chill out and go tell you mom that i left my shoes under her bed. Oh and by the way im from the Bronx if u want ill give u my address take a plane, train, whateva and see me face to face but i think u too much of a pussy to come out here. Soooo shut up go back into your trailer have sex with your sister/mother/cousin. A good movie is a good movie unfortunately some of the marvel movies DID suck. Especially Daredevil, Hulk, Electra, your mother etc. i know what ur problem is …u have a crush on me. Well sorry my faggety friend i do not SUCK DICK. Like i said MAN UP!!! and come see me please!!!!!!! i want u to come to my neighborhood and repeat it to my face PUNK!!!!! Matter of fact bring any Female family member and ill put em to work the streets to pay for the medical bills u incur. Sperm lovin COCKMASTER bu bye now lolololololol (laughing at ur ignorance)

  44. Joe u have my sincerst apologies for that Rant but that dude got me on a bad day. With the exception of Mrs. Weedon i truly apologize to any fan that i have offended. Joe if im not welcome here any more its all good , but im not gonna let anyone insult me for what i believe in. I have been a Marvel/DC fan since the early seventies. I have read and i own almost every legendary story line these companies have printed 1st run. Battle Of The Infinite Earths,The Pheonix Saga, Infinity Guantlet/war,Death of Superman, The Bane Story line,Weapon X, Days of the future past/present, Emerald Dawn, u name it. I know my stuff. Again joe you have my sincerest apologies.

  45. I am very disappointed in the Spiderman series of movies. 1. The first girl friend of Peter Parker was Gwen Stacy. Gwen and Mary Jane never had a chance of meeting since Gwen died just after her father died in Spiderman’s arms when he said “Peter look after Gwen” 2. Mary Jane was introduced to Peter by a friend of Aunt May. Mary Jane was a “High Fashion Model”
    So there is more wrong to these movies than is right by what is in them. There are many more of discrepancies that I could add that was in the Comics that were betrayed in the movies wrong.

  46. I have liked most of the marvel movies. But the ones I think that are going to be the best are the upcoming ones. The one movie I am looking forward to is captain america.

  47. Oooh, check out all the hostility from the fans. Despite the forums topics about what movies will suck, and flop, and are so old that it’s like “why?”, the hostility is the on ething that will always be a form on entertainment.
    but anyways.

    Fanfastic four 2 DID flop. The first movie was ok, but i would advise ppl to see it. Thor– well, what more can i say? its THOR!
    Iron man seems like it’d be interesting but if they mess that up, then i will have lost faith in the comic book movie making world. and yes, i too believe that Wolverine is a commonly recognized superhero, and the fact that they are making a moive about him, will totally just over expose him, and give us the story we already know. And if they try to CHANGE what we already know, then you know all hell is gonna break loose.

    aaaannnnd on a semi-unrelated topic–
    i heard they MARVEL wa sthinking of turning “Runaways” into a movie.
    I would actually pay to go see that, because the comic is great, but, i dunno, it would seem like they’d have to go all “Harry Potter” on us, and make like, 7 different movies because of all the cross overs and stuff.
    What do you guys think?

  48. Hey guys I just have to say it is just about time that Marvel comics has a line of movies out and they’re doing a great job Ghost Rider was my favorite of all but I think Nicholas Cage from Conair would’ve looked more like Johnny Cage. As far as the Spider-man movies go yeah they were great I give an A+ on Sandman but why did they have to kill of Eddie Brock how is Carnage supposed form now from Cletus Kassidy huh.Fantastic Four so far has shown me good things I really don’t have any complaints yet as long as they keep it going a little bit more.Daredevil was OK I was surprised to see Ben Affleck play the role quite well but they need a sequel they kinda left us hanging and they definitely picked the wrong person for Kingpin he was white.Elektra was OK but and don’t get me wrong Jennifer Garner is hot but she isn’t mean enough for that role.Tranformers I really don’t have any complaints with that movie they way they pulled off all that CGI wow.Punisher really disappointed me it ruined the whole image I had on him all together it would’ve been a good movie if Dolph Lungren was young again and they used him for the remake now that would have been impressive.Let’s see the Blade movies were great until they came out with Blade Trinity were they supposed to be the Nightstalkers because they didn’t quite get it but nice effort though or maybe not. X-Men was a great series so far they left me hanging a little bit on the third installment different director and all maybe I just needed to get used to the change and the whole black leather costume thing was a change for me but if you think about it if they actually wore the costumes from the comics it may not have looked as good as it did in the comics maybe that’s why they went for the change and if they do go for a 4th installment they must have all the original actors back otherwise it won’t be worth the sequel. And last for now Hulk even though the CGI on that movie was so noticeable it would’ve been real hard to top that unless they used the same guy from Transformers although machinery is probably easier to create than skin altogether I wasn’t that disappointed it was a better effort than the original hulk series well that about sums it up for now I’ll be back with more comments on comic films other than Marvel next starting with Spawn.

  49. I would like to say everyone has a different perception of what they think is good and isn’t good. Hollywood is not perfect by any means but i happened to like most of the marvel movies put out. I know which ones i like and dislike as do you and lets not forget that when they spend this kinda money on a movie it must appeal to the GENERAL AUDIENCE not just to comic book geeks. And to me a bad movie would be DUDE WHERE’S MY CAR? That movie made BILL & TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE look like Shakespeare. But as i said earlier “GENERAL AUDIENCE” is what its all about, you might not like it but Joe shmoe might…and guess what…more joe shmoes in the world than comic book fan’s. And i am a very novice comic book fan but i can appreciate most of what iseen on screen,i at least got to see a few movies of comic book heroes that i grew up reading in my youth on screen and i thought may not be possible. Yeah they weren’t perfect adaptations but it was good enough for me and got some friends who had NO INTEREST in comic book heroes FINALLY understand why we novice & pro comic book lovers thought it was cool. And they think there cool instead of thinking “spiderman or whoever are for nerds”. But thats my perspective.

  50. wow, i came across this site in search of some upcoming 2008 movie previews. You mean to tell me that this guy hates 99% of all the marvel comics flicks? yeah he is an idiot but he is entitled to his opinion. but come on mannn! do you really need to broadcast it over the net? lol, too funny. what i think of all the movies is, well good or bad they all makin money! so someone like them. i actually like almost all of them , some could have been better but its not my vision of the movie, its the director and the writers.Now imagine if i (a fan not a real director) was given the chance to write and direct a marvel mocie i liked. i would probly break marvel and all the studios that are doing them Pockets!! it would probly cost more to do the movie than it would make in 3 days of opening worldwide. thats because they way we the fans who dont make movies envision our comic book characters and their stories different from how the directors and writes can do them in the time allowed to complete them. all the special effects, crazy wild fights and all the powers being used, yeah MONEY! but until wqe get a director/writer who really embraces the whole reality of the comics to be put into movies to try and satisfy us all, we just wait and watch till one comes our way that maybe if ever , that we allllllll can enjoy without the bashing. peace out folks

  51. If they decide to do a movie based on Thor…Who they pic,is critical.If anyone watches wrestling, yhink on this…wouldn’t Hunter Hurst Helmsley make a good Thor. Maybe a little old,but he has the looks and build….

  52. You are a negative nancy who doesn’t even enjoy true comic books and you live in your mothers basement and eat spaghetti-os with a plastic fork.

  53. Look i dont understand alot of you on here. first of all you want every marvel movie to be done to perfection otherwise you wont like it at all. well i have news for you no movie has ever been done to perfection. dont get me wrong i do hate it when a marvel movie comes out and they have things wrong with it. the thing is thats why we may not like the movie because we know all the little details to the character. my father has been in the air force for almost 30 years and has been to iraq twice and japan once and he has yet to find a war or military movie that is really accurate movie. the reason why i may like the war movie is because i dont know what that plane or gun sounds like in real life so it doesnt bug me but it does to him. so you see since we know so much about marvel characters it bug us when it isnt perfect to the way we want but it may be to a ton more people. the reason why i say this is because most people who go see a marvel movie only know the very basics about the character and movie. also i own every marvel movie even though i dont think some were as good as i thought they could have been. the reason for this is because i still enjoy the character and take what i can from the movie instead of tear it apart and get upset. it is what it is and we can only hope one day they will do a better job. so i leave you with this if you are going to keep on crying about the movies then stop watching them and keep reading your comic books you nacy.

  54. Ah, there’s always an insult at the end.

    Ace: I think it all boils down to opinions, of which we are all entitled to. You are correct, I pick on the movie a bit more than others because I know a bit more about the characters than others. However, a lot of these movies are just plain bad. They’re poorly written, acted and produced.
    It’s fun to see our favorite characters come to life, but that doesn’t change the fact that a bad movie remains a bad movie.
    Notice my comments about Spider-Man 3. I admitted liking the first one quite a bit, despite changes to the character and the world. It’s not always about remaining true to the original comics, it’s also about writing a decent original movie rather than just another overproduced Hollywood cash cow.

  55. lol i had to add nacy in because it is kinda a inside joke for me. i am sorry you were the one to get it. i understand what you are saying plus its a cool with me. i am not going revolve my life around a movie anyways but you do have a point that i will agree with i just had to put my say in also.

  56. I want a Surfer movie that focuses on his showdowns with Thanos. Jim Starlin’s narrative during that arc leading up to, and including the Infinity Gauntlet would make a pretty good movie, animated or CGI. Anyone else agree?

  57. Some of you actually sound like you own the rights to Marvel’s characters. I wonder how many of you actually own any stock in the company. No movie is going to satisfy everyone, but as a Marvel shareholder since 2001 when it was $2.76 per share, I just want to see a solid adaption of any Marvel character. Having collected the amazing spider-man since 1964, I’ve been very pleased with each movie so far.

    To the poster who predicted box office failure for Iron Man, I guess you can now choke on those words. After the opening weekend, Marvel will now be ale to go ahead with the planned adaption of Thor, even with it’s $350 million price tag. Hulk and Punisher 2 are both looking very good at this point as well.

  58. galactus that fuker should have been done in for fuking up the big g,and xmen 3 ,the juggernaut wtf, pile ashite,spiderman 3 garbage,ratner should a been shot in the head for fuking upa good idea,and hulk looks goood

  59. hey eli, well said m8.im on your side,and as for ben affleck,he totally fuked up daredevil, bret ratnet ,id kick tyhat fuker in the nuts for fuking up xmen 3

  60. THOSE COMMENT ABOUT THE UPCOMING MOVIES I TOTALLY AGREE. IRONMAN SO FAR IS A BIG HITT. 400 MILL. HAVEN’T SEEN THOSE NUMBERS SINCE STAR WARS. BUT WOLVERINE , THOR STOP IT. I SEE DOOM DOOM DOOM FOR FUTURE RELEASE OF MARVEL MOVIES. JUST STICK TO THE SCRIPT THE ORGINAL BEGINININGS THAN YOU GOT A SHOT. A SHOT IN THE DARK THAT IS.

  61. all the marvel movies were the best for those humans making lets just hope we all dont die before the movies get really its only 2008 also lets see how thor sliversurfer hulk are before we say there doomed half of you said ironman was doomed but a couple of million people cant be wrong

  62. the thor can be good if you make him just like the comic book and don’t dress him any other way and for odin remember the mask 2 movie! perfect!!!!!!!!

  63. Ive sat hear and read all the opinions, some good some bad. Marvel(Stan Lee) is brilliant. NO! not all of the movies where good some where just bad. But I’ve always been big into comics. There is one fact everyone forgot to mention. Marvel gained creative control over there movies just last year(2008) the only movies they have done based on them alone and not hollywood is Iron-man, Hulk(2008) both where very well done and made for us! By us I mean made for reality. Take from it what you will.

  64. god damn, you’re such a little whining bitch. if you don’t want to see the movies then don’t see them. i don’t care about your opinion. there are things you obviously don’t know. marvel had sold the rights to most of there movies. marvel just started making there own movies, iron man, the incredible hulk and the upcoming Thor and captain america. if you were a fan you would know this. the only reason the incredible hulk did so poorly is because the first was crap. when marvel finally got the rights back for it the fans already had a poor experience with the hulk. the incredible hulk was good despite your narcissistic Gothic view on things. open your eyes, if you over analyze every movie that you see your not going to like any movie.
