Gunn came from Troma. For Disney to act outraged now is disingenuous to the max. I think GOTG mostly sucks. However, Gunn never lied about his shock cinema/provocative past.

I agree with the above. The thing is, Disney wants to be the Duke of New York, A-Number-One. They don't want anyone with that kind of past (or sense of humor) connected to them.

I have a pretty nasty sense of humor myself, but I draw the line at kids. That's what most of his tweets looked like. And he did go out of his way to delete ten thousand of them.

Look like this thread could use some more action. This is from Ed Norton's speech on The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis last night.

@Nutcase020

Ed Norton just ROASTED Marvel...
"I tried being like Bruce. I did a big action film, The Incredible Hulk. Know what went wrong? I wanted a better script. I thought we should make at least one Marvel movie that's as good as the worst Christopher Nolan movie, but what do I know."

I thought TIH was great. Ang Lee's version was pretentious, but also had some highlights.
Norton's wisecracks would actually sting if Hulk was universally unpopular like Cyborg or Cavill's Superman or other members of the Justice League.

SuperCav and Cyborg aren't "universally unpopular." A lot of people want to see Cavill hang around in the cape, and so much of Cyborg's backstory was left on the cutting room floor by WB that it's erroneous to say anyone could really fashion a firm opinion of the character short of "Ray Fisher is a solid Victor Stone/Cyborg."

Stick to the facts.

Despite the character's popularity, Hulk's first movie was shit and nobody talks about it except to bash it. TIH, while a significantly better film, was a box office dud, and Marvel has to share distribution dough with Universal, who still hold those rights to the Hulk. So they keep him around in other movies because he's better in short bursts, anyway. For now.

Some of the best Hulk stories don't have "Hulk smash!" at their epicenter, but general audiences won't pay to see them, i.e. there's no money in producing/releasing them as movies.

Disney Unlikely to Rehire ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Director James Gunn (EXCLUSIVE)

At this point, the letter does not seem likely to save his job. Gunn’s firing was approved by Disney Studios chief Alan Horn, with his boss, company CEO Bob Iger weighing in on the final decision. The involvement of the highest levels of Disney signals that the cast pressure to rethink the Gunn ouster will struggle to gain internal support. “I don’t see Disney re-hiring him,” says one person close to the matter. “Those tweets were so horrible and Disney has a different standard then other studios.”

Quick thoughts on Ant Man 2 - too many sidekicks, too much slapstick, one too many villains (Walton Goggins was more of a distraction), but otherwise alot of fun. I think they should do a film with just Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer tripping the rift in the microverse (or whatever its called). Ghost was a uniquely sympathetic and cruel villain. B+

Did you see the midcredit scene?

Yes.

Do you think that whole quantum realm thing will factor into defeating Than is?

Big time. My guess is Strange and Ant Man will meet up.

Yes. I think this new development will help Marvel turn the corner and launch the MCU and they will become a force for years to come. They have Captain Marvel set for release next year as well as Spiderman: Far from home! The way Homecoming introduced the Scorpion character, he must be the main baddie in the sequel. The Scorpion could possibly be the greatest villian in comic book history! I predict this is going to be the breakout year for Marvel! What do you think?

This is what I think is going to happen:

Yes, the Quantum Realm is going to enable time travel via the "time vortexes", or whatever. I did not see Ghost get dusted so I bet she helps do this somehow...or at least bring Ant-man back to normality.

IMO, they will do something to change the situation with the Asgardians being planetless, probably when they retrieve the Tesseract and the reality stone...defeating Hela without bringing on Ragnarok...or a change that keeps her in Hell...ie: Loki not deposing Odin.

In Infinity War, we did not see the battle on Xandar. I think that is a big give away that Xandar is where the next Thanos battle takes place - before he gets any of the Infinity stones.

My thoughts are that there will NOT be an Avengers version of the Infinity Guantlet. Instead, I think the stones will be used by individual Avengers, Star-Lord, and maybe Loki due to time travel, to defeat Thanos on Xandar.

In this case, the entire timeline will revert back to what it was prior to Ragnorok...NOBODY is dusted or dies. Unless some Avengers or others die on Xandar...which is possible. All of the original Avengers survived the dusting...but that may not happen on Xandar....1st act, gathering the stones via time travel, which leads to the 2nd act of getting the Tesseract and preventing Ragnorok, 3rd act and conclusion on Xandar.

Also, I think Nebula will kill Thanos. If you remember, Thanos said she came aboard his ship to kill him, and she nearly succeded. Shifts and changes in the timeline will enable her to do it...maybe with help from Gamora.

That's how I would write it anyways.

I was laughing as I wrote it. I was trying to recreate the blind eternal optimism and lack of reality in the other thread. I guess I'm just not delusional enough to pull it off. Lol.
