That's kind of been my concern. The fact that they have all these stories intertwined means that it's almost inevitable that, after a certain amount of time, they'll start running into a mess they simply can't undo. Not without rebooting everything, anyway. It feels like they are just doing exactly what they do for their comics in film form. Though, they're also getting generally very competent filmmakers to help them do it. I have to wonder how long they can stave that off.

Oh, also... why the fuck isn't Guy Pearce a household name in this day and age? Every time I think that guy's going to break out huge, he slinks right back into relative obscurity. He is a fantastic actor and deserves a lot more kudos than he gets. I do look forward to seeing him in Iron Man 3.

Rumor is that Ant-Man will be played by either Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Paul Rudd. Kind of big differences in film there.

Still boggles the mind that we get Ant-Man before all the other popular more mainstream superheroes.

Just boggles the fucking mind.

I woulda expected a Hawkeye movie before Antman.

Best part is that it could be Scott Lang who isn't even the most notable Ant-Man.

I figure you'd want to take the best superheroes or the worst ones to make a movie out of, not the ones in between. Best and worst would probably make for more fun movies. You can play the best ones more straight and the worst ones more tongue in cheek and humorous.

Surprised no one's complained about Hugh Jackman as Wolverine yet.

He's an amazing actor. And he's created a great character, sure. It ain't Wolverine, though.

Why would they? The dude's Wolverine!

That and I don't think he has anything to do with these movies.

I never hear it. The two things I tend to hear is that the character sucks or Hugh Jackman was made for the role.

There is no such thing as a definite Wolverine just like there is no such thing as a definite Batman. The character has changed several times while maintaining certain traits.

Hugh Jackman's is an adaptation of the character done well that incorporates the characteristics of what he is playing as respectfully.

This is not like when Deadpool was adapted. And completely forgot to include one single trait of the character.

People complain about Jackman's Wolveirne all the time though. He's great but he never really feels like Wolverine. He's a perfect Hollywood version of Wolverine though. He's the best part of those movies so no one can complain too much.

Also he's too fucking tall for the role. Wolverine is 5'3'' and bulky and hairy.

I love talking about Wolverine. This is getting me giddy.

Jackman created a great character.
I've said the same about Ledger's Joker; it was a phenomenal performance and an amazing character, I am glad he did what he did and the world is better for it, but I couldn't really consider him "a Joker", in the traditional sense. As Hoogie has said, he was perfect for Hollywood.

Wolverine's a scrappy scrapper. He's small. The Fastball Special literally has a big guy toss Wolverine towards fools.

And he's not just a "lone wolf", he's an asshole. He's not always likable. I haven't seen that in Jackman's Wolverine. In one of the films, Wolverine was supposed to kill some bad guy unprovoked before fighting his buddies. They re-edited it to where the guy shot Wolverine first (or something). They thought it was too vicious for the character.
I remember thinking, "The hell? Wolverine is SUPPOSED to be vicious."

Jackman's Wolverine is (and forgive me for using the term) nerf'd. Wolverine's an animal, he's a beast. He's a mean cuss.

His unofficial catchphrase is, "I'm the best at what I do, and what I do ain't very nice."

But we're talking about movies, not comic books.

Yeah, well... I just think Marvel could have married the actor and the comic book character better.

Like RDJ and Tony Stark, or Sam Jackson and Nick Fury. The man and the part met.

Though, to be fair, I guess Nick Fury met Sam Jackson before Sam Jackson met Nick Fury.


Anyways, maybe it's not Jackman's portrayal that wasn't "Wolverine". Maybe it was the writing.

But Marvel had nothing to do with it. X-Men isn't even Marvel Cinematic Universe. X-Men was from Fox after Marvel sold off a bunch of their film rights in the 90's to try and avoid bankruptcy.

That explains it. Yup.
Fox. This makes total sense now. Christ, that's disappointing.

Yeah...

This also means Wolverine and Captain America won't ever be in the same movie.

I hope it's an action comedy. I have to assume it's going to be, given the lead actor and director. Would be really dumb otherwise.

I'd say just wait and see before casting judgement, hopefully he'll be good. I like Paul Rudd.

I also love Paul Rudd. Maybe he won't do too bad.
But that's what I said about Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern.
