Re: Disney+'s Moon Knight

Can't find my Moon Knight comics but I recall it being very Batman-esque. It was created by notable Batman writer Doug Moench and the character has similarities to Wayne including his wealth and street-level presence. One thing I remember was how scared I was to pick up a Moon Knight comic as a chil...

Re: Disney+'s Ms Marvel

Monica Rambeau was the second Captain Marvel (after Mar-Vell) and Avenger during the 80s. She no longer goes by Captain Marvel in the books. She's not connected to Carol as far as I know, but of course the MCU created a connection in the film.

Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe Discussion Thread

Spidey's always been a solo character anyhow, so while disappointing, it's not a huge deal.

Also no one has gotten Spider-Man right in live-action thus far, and whether it's Sony or Marvel, I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Re: The Batman (2021)

Elderly Alfred is really just an invention of the movies. In the books he was closer to 50s than 70s.

I was hoping that they would exclude Alfred from this film altogether, but alas...

Re: Blade (TBD)

It's been rumored previously that Marvel Studios had considered adapting an aborted storyline from the comics that featured Blade passing the torch to his teenage daughter. That could possibly be the reason for casting someone of Ali's age.

Re: Manga & Anime

Don't forget the two movies after the end of the series. Death & Rebirth and End of Evangelion.

Re: Pixar's Soul (2020)

Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams and your interests come from? What is it that makes you...YOU?
What? That seems like a dumb question. How is any of this a mystery? What do the "cosmic realms" have anything to do with this? Are those really "life's most important questions"?

Re: Dark Phoenix (2019)

It's a real pity Singer never made X3 himself. Also funny how both third instalments are pretty low-tier if not bad. It's unfortunate but I honestly doubt that Singer's X3 would have been too much better. A big improvement over the Last Stand maybe, but not much in the way of the Dark Phoenix Saga....

He might be an """okay""" actor, I just don't think he has that Bruce Wayne roughness.

And he's not intimidating AT ALL. Sue me.
They might be going for a softer Bruce Wayne this time. Maybe dialing back the intimidation aspect.
