Fuck! Movie sucked! Very disappointed.

RDJs best performance but damn it is IM2 status.
post #182 of 209

NNOOOOOOO!!! Please tell me you're joking.

 

Specifics on why it was so bad? IM2 blew pretty bad. Just so corny.

Meh. RDJ was good. Everything else was corny as shit. Made it too hokey

- Twist was so corny to the point of cringeworthy.

- RDJ was great, but that's no surprise.

- Everybody becomes either Extremis or gets to wear a suit.

- No plot direction, more emphasis on funny lines (again, RDJ here) and action.

- And action wasn't too great, either.

 

Comparisons to IM2 are correct, but it was marginally better. IM2 was a mess.

I mean the twist was pretty out there, I was not expecting that Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the Mandarin was just an actor playing the role of the Mandarin. Especially with how awesome of a villain he was in the comics, and how RDJ has been wanting to include him in the movie. Almost seems as a cop out.

Point of the movie was really Starkand the aftermath of the Avenger's movie, I think it did well in that department with how Stark coped and dealt with it all post. His reaction and hidden, and then revealed, actions between Avengers and IM3 seem to make decent amount of sense and build upon his character.

Best part was the RDJ and the Kid's chemistry. Guy Pearce plays his part pretty well, but it was definitely poorly written for him, Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
and less than stellar of a villain.

Other thoughts: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Is it implied that Stark modifies Extremis for himself? Wasn't very clear at the end with what he did to control it and fix it, and whether or not he was implying he got it for himself.

Seemed pretty stupid to just self destruct all his armors at the end...But it was sort of cool to show how he coped with his anxiety of the the looming danger in the universe with building a robot Iron Man suit army with a capable AI and what not, shows how he wasn't just in anxiety but he was planning ahead based on the previous experience.

What they did to the Mandarin is a shame and just awful. I was fine not casting an Asian actor because Kingsley was a great actor but the way they treated him in the film is just a shame.

Movie should have been A Tony Stark film, remove the suits and it can just be a little dramedy of sorts. Suits were practically an afterthought, just a waste to even have that much suit. It felt like it meant to give you a "WOW" factor but came up short. Very disappointing.

Much hypes airplane rescue was very disappointing, it could have looked much more epic but it was terribly edited that you get more confused on what the hell is going on. And he was talking like everyone in the vicinity of 100 yards could hear him while dropping from the plane? The fuck! It felt more stupid than epic.

They should have killed Potts. I hate the ending where she pretty much just saves Tony. They really missed killing her and leaving you with something to think about.

Hate that the arc is off his chest, it was vague whether he got the extremis implanted on his body or not but I am not going to be surprised if that is how he does it in the next films. I mean I guess he does have some form of it since that giant hole in his chest is now gone? Speaking of, no more glowing chest for Tony? Blah.

Product placement is worst here than in the Avengers film. Damn you Marvel/Disney.


End credit scene was cool but also feel disappointing, I wanted a GotG teaser or something more exciting than Banner falling asleep on Tony's story. Ugh.

I could go on. Not a good start for my summer movie going experience.

The Oracle/Java placement bothered me the most.

That's so sad. I read all the spoilers before seeing it. Now I don't even feel like seeing it.

 

I'll probably just download it when it comes out.

 

Why can't there be movies like Back to the Future or Indiana Jones any more?

 

And don't think about mentioning the last IJ, or the upcoming.

Because that was 30 years ago.  All movies were better when you were 14.

I hope you didn't watch Star Trek Into Darkness; you'd probably lose all faith in summer films just from that.

 

Here's to hoping Man of Steel/Fast Six are awesome.

RDJ makes one-liners for 2.5 hours. I like RDJ, but did not really like this movie.

‘Avengers 2’ cast threaten to quit due to low sequel pay from Marvel

While Robert Downey Jr. enjoys Iron Man 3′s massive success, The Avengers 2 cast reportedly aren’t willing to work for what Marvel intends to pay them for The Avengers sequel.

Deadline is reporting that, “Marvel and therefore owner Disney are going to run into big trouble on that sequel because the upfront pay, backend compensation, break even points and box office bonuses aren’t pinned down yet for several big stars and castmates. This is a major hurdle which Walt Disney Co Chaiman/CEO Bob Iger hasn’t even mentioned to Wall Street or shareholders although he’s already been hyping Avengers 2 for more than a year now.” This may have Marvel a little worried. The last thing they need is a mass exodus from the most popular superhero team in the world.

The biggest problem right now for Marvel is that they don’t have Robert Downey Jr. locked down in a contract any longer. Deadline’s source says, ”They need him, and they don’t have him. He’s got a lot of leverage.”

They don’t need Scarlett Johansson as much, although she is reprising her role as Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Chris Evans has reportedly already signed on for Avengers 2 when he wrapped up his contract for Captain America 2. Chris Hemsworth (Thor) is a far bigger actor now than he was when The Avengers was signing on cast members, so he’s most likely expecting a bigger pay raise. He’s reportedly told Marvel that he won’t show up for Avengers 2 for what they’ve offered him so far. As he was paid $5 million for Snow White and the Huntsmen, he’s unwilling to take a paycut for a film that is expected to make at least $1.5 billion at the box office.

After the heavy hitters, we have Mark Ruffalo, who is arguably one of the better actors in the cast, yet will most likely be paid the lowest, along with Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson. They’re all expecting $5 million or more, with a back end deal for Avengers 2, but so far Marvel isn’t biting. There’s even talk of the entire cast strong-arming Marvel into giving them equal pay.

Deadline goes on to say that Marvel’s frugality continued during awards season, when Marvel didn’t want to pay for an awards season campaign for The Avengers, and even when Disney offered to “foot the bill,” Marvel still wasn’t willing to go through with the campaign. This is just another sign that Marvel’s business model remains to be ‘keep it cheap.’

The Avengers cast are, reportedly, “ready to rumble with Marvel,” before The Avengers sequel hits theaters in 2015. Deadline reports that, “Some received only $200,000 for Avengers and Downey got paid $50M. On what planet is that OK?” an insider tells them. CAA represents an overwhelming majority of the Marvel stars and is trying hard to keep the negotiations out of the public limelight and media headlines. But that may not be possible with some reps blaming the studio for ‘scorched earth’ tactics past and present. “Marvel has created so much animosity by strong-arming and bullying on sequels already. It’s counterproductive,” one source tells them. Another source says, “I’m sick of Kevin Feige telling me again and again how Marvel is ‘reinventing the movie business.’ It doesn’t work like this. They’re reinventing business, period.”

Apparently, Marvel has threatend to sue or even recast the actors when their contracts are “challenged.” According to their source, many of the actors responded by saying, “Go ahead.” They’ve heard that Chris Hemsworth was one of the main actors who “wasn’t axnious” to go back into his strenuous workout routine to get back into fighting shape for Thor 2. They were also told that, “Scarlett Johanssen told castmates she’s “not going to cut her quote” for Marvel’s Avengers 2.” This is definitely starting to sound ugly, and we don’t imagine, with Marvel’s reported offer of a $500,000 increase, this is going to meet the expectations of the actors that are getting nearly $10 million or more on the open market.

Deadline spoke with Joss Whedon, asking him if he was worried about the actors leaving due to these disputes with Marvel, where he went on to say, “I feel good about Avengers because I feel everyone who took it got something to sink their teeth into. They weren’t hung out to dry. It’s not a soulless piece of work. It may be inept in some places but I meant every word. Marvel distinguished themselves by going after good actors, writers, and directors who were unexpected choices.” We imagine Whedon isn’t that worried, since he took in a reported $100 million for The Avengers, but it’s a different story for actors like Chris Hemsworth, who took in less than $1 million in his first two Marvel films.

One saving grace is that Robert Downey Jr. is reportedly acting like “an older brother.” Taking the side of the rest of the cast and saying that he’s going to stand with them, which means Marvel is going to have to deal with a serious problem if Downey decides to throw down. Fans may be unaware, but Robert Downey Jr. has pull in tinseltown again. His checks of $50-80 million demand respect from the studios and he’s no longer just “the talent.”

Joss Whedon may end up shooting a film next year with actors he’s never had on set before. We look forward to seeing how all of this pans out and if you want to learn more, make sure to head over to Deadline’s full report where they discuss this story in full detail.

Marvel would be insane to try to recast so many major players with this continued hype and "inter-movie" scheme of Thor 2, Cap 2, etc. Empty threat.
