Are you hyped for Doctor Strange, /co/?
>Never read any Doctor Strange
I'm sorry for your loss.
Im in the state I was with GoTG and Ant-Man, Im crossing my fingers and hoping it isnt shit, I hope its at least entertaining and I really really hope that its magic and not fucking science.
it's the scientific method applied to magic. lots of experiments and hypothesis and seeing if you can pull off the ritual if you use mouse blood and an egg instead of a human sacrifice
I see where you're coming from, but his voice kinda doesn't fit
Doom fans are really really desperate for a live action adaptation where he actually seems like Doom. I don't blame them. Can you imagine how shitty it must be to see your favorite character butchered time after time in multiple live action adaptations? To have the general public never even gt a sense of who that character is supposed to be?
Is he too JUST to play doctor strange?
>Just like muh MCU movies to be.
As opposed to what thought? DC last released "Superman: the Batman-Style Version" and Fox just released "X2: This Time With Time-Travel". Marvel's the only ones who consistently give movies to characters who haven't gotten films before. The last time Fox did that was in 2005, With Fantastic 4 (2000, with X-Men if you count the Corman F4 films). DC did as recently as 2011 with Green Lantern, but we all know how that turned out. Marvel did it just a couple months ago, and they'll be doing it again later this year. The movies may be "safe" in their formula, but Marvel seems to be the only one willing to actually take risks in what properties they choose.
You know when I saw him do the voice and body acting for smaug in the hobbit I have to say I was impressed.
I think as long as they don't fuck up too bad it will be a decent movie.
It's more than I could have hoped for, really. I was sure they were going to try to tone it down or something, But they actually gave him the red cape and high collar. The absolute madmen.
Very. Capeflick I'm most hyped for out of everything in the next 5 years.
I read all of it in about a week and a half this past summer
solely because I wanted to be prepared for the movie.
I think I can see why /co/ gets so salty about these now, considering that alI I can think about is how much I now want him to rhyme and call the Cloak of Levitation by name and perform at least 5 of his classic incantations and if he doesn't then it's RUINED FOREVER!
I'm quietly optimistic.
Marvel has a proven track record, and, while Dr. Strange is not one of the characters in my wheelhouse, I never actively disliked him.
By comparison, I have a quiet pessimism for Suicide Squad and Dawn of Justice. Man of Steel, while enjoyed by many, did not satisfy my particular desires for a Superman film (it wasn't awful, just not what I wanted). And I have actively disliked Harley Quinn, and Zod.
If you're implying that nothing with the Marvle brandname on it is a risk, I agree.
If that's the case though, what do you think they CAN make that would be a risk?
Why wouldn't I be serious? Do you see DC giving Doctor Fate a film? They barely even give their big names like Wonder Woman anything. She's getting a cameo that will be her first appearance in a live-action wide-release movie EVER. This, after Marvel has already given a film to its family of Space-Rejects and the guy whose power is to have the strength of a human while really small. Yes, Marvel takes risks with its properties, and it is very good at making those risks pay off and having people say "Well of course it succeeded! It's Marvel."
What doesn't mean shit? The fact that Marvel actually gives its fans movies based on obscure properties and they sell? That they continue to do this after DC makes on awful Green Lantern film, and then runs back to the two superheros that print them money? I'd say that means a lot, actually.
>That they continue to do this after DC makes on awful Green Lantern film, and then runs back to the two superheros that print them money?
This is, of course, totally different from making Iron Man a main character in Captain America III because shut up, that's why.
Fuck dude, the reason why it's not a risk is because they have a formula with their movies which they replicate with every fucking movie. Ant Man is literally just Iron Man 1 redux, it has nothing to do with how Goddamn well known their super hero property is. Shit man.
A lot of movies come out year round that are much more creative than any of Marvel's shit that are succesful and make money at the box office which aren't relying on name brand or familiarity with any source material, but you won't hear any fucking faggots calling them risks just because it's a Goddamn Marvel Studios film.
Ant-man was a poor man's Iron Man so I expect this to be a poor man's Iron Man 2 which basically had leaps in technology that might as well have been magic.
The plot is going to be predictable, the villain will be forgotten as soon as the credits roll, and there will be this overabundance of humor that will keep the audience laughing and reassure them that everything will be all right.
