I'm less enthusiastic about Captain Marvel. Will likely wait for video on that one.

I have no excitement for Captain Marvel.  Partially because the movie is retconning the MCU and making her the first modern Hero and not Iron Man.  and also, I never did like the character in the comics that much, so I don't like that they are trying to force her into the "Tony Stark Role" as the central MCU character post Avengers 4.


Didn't they already kind do the retcon (had to look up the word) thing when they brought in Cap? Either way, if they do it half decent I'll still watch it.

There's a lot of movies to mull over really quick, but put on the spot, I think the misdirections in IM3 are still my least favorite MCU thing done. Teasing Pepper in a "Rescue" suit and having the Mandarin be a fake villain was kind of low. I get it from the bait-and-switch/twist standpoint of that movie, but it was still a let down.

I still liked IM3 more than IM2. And The mini film centering on Trevor in prison confirmed that the real Mandarin is still out there. They can really go all out with the character in the future.

Yeah, I think Brie Larson is the biggest casting error they've made. Her performance ability does not have the range to carry a superhero film, much less a franchise like Downey or Evans can.

I don't consider that a Retcon.  1) Captain America has always been created during WW2 and has always been a WW2 vet.  the frozen in ice hibernation is consistent with the comics in how he is in the modern world.  2) They find his frozen body during the events of Thor.  Iron Man 1 and 2 and Thor 1 all occur before they defrost Cap and realize he is alive.


what they are doing with Captain Marvel is making her the "first" modern human hero by having her origin story set in the 1980s.


I agree with you fully on the bait and switch in IM3.  that was such crap.  one of the worst things they have done in the MCU.
