As long as she wears her ridiculous helmet at least part of the time, I'm cool with it.
I fucking love that dumb helmet.
>couldn't even make the Grandmaster blue
They said they wouldn't earlier, but god damn it.
I guess every Elder of the Universe is going to be some guy with bad hair, cheap outfits and a chin stripe.
>Marvel's going cheap again, I see.
Yes, who os doing the worst job?
>They still make good movies.
Like what. And I've personally been odne with the mcu movies since thor 1. Saw strange because a friend wanted me to go, bored the living fuck out of me outside of the 4 minute trippy scene in the beginning. They somehow managed to make dr. strange feel extremely generic and boring. How do you even manage to do that.
>they're no where near "good".
Sorry but the critics, audiences and the money they make say otherwise
Well the movies are made for people who have enjoyed the series for a while.
Muh dick. I'm so ready for this batshit cosmic nonsense. Fucking space knights, colorful alients, Jeff Goldblum devouring scenery, Cat Blanchett looking like a GILF. I want on Wahtiti's wild ride.
There are real reasons for it. Its no secret that Marvel has been doing the safe bland thing for about the last 9 films. That still leads to good films, but in a safe bland way.
Some people simply see safe and bland, but competant, as more offensive than experimental and different, but incompetant.
You ask me, a film that trys to be 8/10 and succeeds is better than a film that tries to be 10/10 and barely cracks 4/10. Some people feel differently.
And this of course
>making Elders of the Universe look alike
i back this design choice
if only we could get The Runner and Gardener too. Full fucking Thanos Quest
Personally, I'm just getting burnt out on them. I enjoyed Doctor Strange and even had fun with Ant-Man, but Civil War and Avengers 2 were pretty dull, and even the ones I did like have felt very samey in visual styling. I think that having a house style between films is smart from a business side, but it definitely hinders creativity.
Me too, I loved Thor 1, hated the shit out of Thor 2 and most of the comedic bullshit phase 2 Marvel films, but if they manage to do something legit cool, fun and interesting I will be the first saying that the movie is good.
and by fun I mean good writing, tension where is needed a good antagonist with presence and literal screen time, etc not stupid jokes
It's not really the designs themselves, but the fact that they look cheap and rubbery.
This is shitty
>a good antagonist with presence and literal screen time, etc not stupid jokes.
So quick question: How many MCU movies are we going to go through when you all realize that they cannot write a fucking villain to save their lives and that jokes are their bread and butter.
It's Kirby though so apparently it's okay.
>Well respected director with a slate of highly reviewed films
>Wah, stop talking about how Marvel directors have good resumes. Only based god Snyder has a good resume in my own contrarian mind.
Fuck outta my hype thread.
I've been preparing to hate it since the director talked about it being a "buddy comedy". These stills make it look a lot more Warlord of Mars-esque but I've learned my lesson about getting excited for these things.
I'm going to watch this in theaters. That's going to happen. But they don't make "good" movies. They make fun watchable popcorn flicks. And even then not all the times. Thor 2 wasn't even enjoyable.
Personally after AoU being such a disappointment and nothing after being anywhere close to "great" and just "Good but forgettable" has really made me loose interest. I mean I'm still going to watch these movies because I want to see what all the lead up to IW is.
It may also be that I'm getting tired of CBM as a whole, DCEU keeps shitting the bed, MCU is playing it too safe, Fox keeps fucking up the F4 and wont let them play in the MCU sandbox, The only films I'm interested in now are the X-Men movies because they will take risks and so far both times have worked wonderfully, and now with them trying to re invent the X-men films makes me excetied
TL;DR MCU is boring and safe, the bubble will burst soon
>wub wub wub marvel going cheap wub wub wub
I'm not even looking forward to this trainwreck of a movie but at least they're using practical effects instead of CGI bullshit that will look terrible.
are we doing the thing where we look at the still images of these costumes and pretend they're not going to look good under the correct lights and angles or that we don't all know there are different versions of each costume for different functions during filming? We are? ok. Hey guys, remember caps dumb and floppy chin strap? that was a silly thing.
People bitch about Warner and Fox but at least they take risks and are willing to change the formula. Logan is honestly one of the best superhero films, on par with TDK, I've seen and is far better than anything Marvel has created. Marvel sticks to playing it safe for almost a decade and I'm getting tired of it.
No they don't. That's exactly the problem. They do everything to hold an audiences hand and hit those key points. Batman Begins had to be called that cause execs were so afraid people wouldn't get it's not a sequel. They cling to old ideas and force them into new ones. Nolan managed to make it work in Begins when WB forced him to use Scarecrow and none of the villains used in prior films. In BvS they forced plot elements again, cause of brand familiarity and likely straight producer stubbornness.
There's no risk in really any DC film. They are formulaic and predictable. The formula is pretty much there in all their films. Even breaking formula isn't a risk when you're clinging to bullet point s they think will appease fans.
Fox takes risks. It's a much bigger risk to deviate from source material in the face of story telling, which they did multiple times. To make films and use plot elements that are completely unknown. It fucks up for them. Apocalypse was very much like Sybok from Star Trek 5, except in the end he had powers and wasn't bullshit. It was just..... bleh. There's a good idea in there, about a cult leader and promises and so on, but no one has really pulled that off in film. It was a huge risk
It's not power rangers. its 80s he-man core, with kirby designs mixed in.
A. Gonna have her comic self as her final form
B. What we see is some sort of disguise and she's really hiding her comic self
C. She'll have a reference to her comic self at some point, like Thor and his helmet.
>all these people dissing on the celestials-lite space knights
It's like you shitters forget that they're going to go through CGI, I'll be suprised if that pic isn't from a break during filming.
>They're not the same race, just both of the same council of Elders, last survivors of their own respective species.
I'll admit I'm not into Marvel comics much. more into DC, my mistake. But still, they're from the same group, so they made them similarly designed so there's a connection between the two.
I like Taika Waititi, so I have some hope that this might actually be funny, unlike most of the MCU which has pretty cringy humour. IM3 was probably the funniest so far. But yeah the production design looks pretty shit, same goes for GotG 2.
See I doubt most of co won't mind deviations if Marvel didn't try to synergize with the movies.
Look at the fucking collector now compared to him in the past. Thanks to shitty synergy he looks more like his MCU counterpart. This is why co fags are more asinine when it comes to changes. It actually affects their comics which they like reading.
I for one am loving the aesthetic of this film. It reminds me of 80's and 90's cartoons, and that's a grand compliment. I'm not sure about Thor's haircut, though. (I've got long hair myself, people compare me to Thor all the time, I'll miss that.)
Honestly I used to love the MCU movies, but as of late they just dont...have the same spark as they did.
Iron Man 1 is still one of my favorite cape movies, and I always have a really fun time watching it. Im not sure if its nostalgia or what, but the only recent MCU movie that I walked out of thinking "that was a pretty good movie" was Guardians.
Dr Strange is as forgettable as the majority of the MCU movies after Avengers. I don't know why people praise it so much.
Winter Soldier and Civil War were on a different level. Even when CW was filmed almost like a high budget tv show and not a movie.
Iron Man at least had a little bite to it with the Middle East and terrorists being depicted. Everything since has been as watered down as possible to appeal more to international markets.
What a dame, wanna go dancing?
What's wrong with watered down?
People watch these movies to escape the harsh realities of real life and to just have fun in a movie theatre for 2 hours.
Why is it a bad thing that a movie is trying to entertain the audience?
They are fun, but they never were good. In fact, Both IM1 and TWS ("the good movies") come from a time where the MCU wasnt set in stone and the other tried to avoid everything the MCU was intentionally. They are as ANTIMCU as they can be, thats why they are good.
muh justin bieber, adele, gaga, transformers
What's up with /co/ ''insults'' sounding like something that Tod Flanders would come up with?
What's next, ''meanie poopyhead''?
I for one welcome our new sentai overlords.
