    Neo's ranking this with GotG which I thought was terrible kinda frightens me for CW. Cap 1 and WS were great though so I'm hopeful and should see it this weekend.

    Well argued as always.

    If you want to believe the film was a "Cap film at heart" go right ahead and continue to do so. As I have said before, making that assertion is about as logical as saying X-Men 2 was a Wolverine film.

    You can keep harping on the spoiler thing if you want. It's not like I didn't admit to it being a mistake on my part and fix it or anything. :sarcasm:

    I'd rank this above GoTG mainly because I believe it will be far more re-watchable then GoTG was. The jokes that gave GoTG so much of it's charm quickly start to feel old and you begin to notice how paper thin the plot is after seeing it a few times.

    I really see a reason to waste time arguing with you when it's pretty much going to end with "I say so and you're wrong" anyways.

    You want to think that think others have no right to think otherwise and are just damn morons to disagree then fine, again I see no reason to argue with that kind of thinking.


    Anyways....


    Apocalypse embargo lifts today at 2pm PST


    Simon Kinberg has supposedly confirmed that the next XMen film will be set in the 90s.


    Also Singer on Deadpool crossing over...



    Kinberg also claims Wolverine 3 has started filming and confirms it's R-rating...

    Pretty much confirms the rumor that it's based on Old Man Logan. Rated R or not i'm not really sure how they can pull that one off considering:


    One of the key plot points is you find out Logan was tricked into slaughtering all the other X-Men.

    Will Fox be ok with showing that on screen? I'm not really sure.

    So . . . is Ant Man worth renting?
    I am not really excited about it, because "who cares" but the consensus is "it's great" then I don't mind renting it.

    I think AntMan is worth a viewing, I found fun and entertaining even just to see the power itself. They also have AntMan & Wasp sequel coming so it wouldn't hurt to get a head start on it now or just wait til it airs on premium channels this year if you have access to that.



    After Deadpools success, I don't think they'll be shy about it but they probably will just loosely adapt it.

    With that said, it is also Jackmans last run was Wolvy so it would be nice that they go all out on a blaze of glory than just having another underwhelming film.

    Yes worth renting. Ant-Man is pretty much a perfect example of a film I would label a "rental." See it once, be glad you did and move on.

    After my post I was thinking they could handle the scene pretty much like it was in the comic and get away with it.

    After all you only see him kill "bad guys." You see what he sees, not what is really happening

    You are right that it would have to be a loose adaptation. After-all many of the main characters like Hulk and Red Skull are not available for use. I think it's as good a Wolverine story as any to have be his final in the role.

    Guardians of the Galaxy is my "favourite" MCU film but that doesn't necessarily make it the "best" if you know what I mean. I really enjoyed the wacky characters, the banter, the set pieces, the soundtrack, etc. It felt like the essence of comic books come to life. Those are all personal preferences.

    Other posters will be quick to champion Iron Man and Captain America: Winter Soldier as superior films than GotG and I ain't mad at that.

    Civil War, to me, is a nice combination of the charming zaniness of Guardians and the grounded sensibilities of the Cap franchise. That's just my take.

    For some reason I can't really get behind Ant-Man. I travel quite a bit and that's one of the options for the free in-flight entertainment and I still skip over it for other movies I've already seen.

    It's all sight gags. Some good ones and all. Don't get me wrong. Just didn't have much of a plot and the villain was laughably bad. I'm still on the side of it being worth seeing once.

    I thought Ant-Man was refreshingly good. Enjoyed its light tone.

    I liked the Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons so I am looking forward to this, didn't even know they were making another one.

    I've followed Dan Brown in twitter, and had followed the production of Inferno. Was very pleased with both of those previous movies - and that Ron Howard is back suggests it'll be a good one again.

    I didn't feel like Angels & Demons was nearly as good as Da Vinci Code.

    IIRC, they made a lot of significant changes when they adapted A&D to the big-screen. I remember liking the film though.

    I didn't read the book but wasn't A&D suppose to happen before DVC?


    I like both though but DVC was definitely better overall. Plus it had Audrey Tautou!

    Si. But for the ending, Inferno was pretty good. I look forward to watching the movie version (at home).
