Marvel probably was hoping for this type of film with Captain America. But that origin movie was one of their worst. Very poor. Wonder Woman was way better.

Good. Looking forward to it. A bonus scene would be if she kills off Jared Leto's Joker....




No spoilers, though!

Just watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and it's probably my new favorite Marvel movie.

It's the whole feel of the movie with the characters, the humor and the music that makes it special to me. I loved Groot in the first movie, but baby Groot is absolutely adorable. The plot was alright but became secondary to me. I could watch this group do just about anything and it would always be entertaining.

It may not stand up to the progression that these films have made over the years, but at the time, CA:TFA Was a very well made film IMO. Certainly better than the Hulk movies. The throwback vibe WW had is where the similarities come from.

I'd also like to add that Gal Gadot is my new hall pass. She can whip my ass anytime.

IMO, the most interesting parts of the first Cap movie were about him getting turned into Cap. Skinny Steve FTW. It was good movie, only weak compared to the best MCU movies.

Wonder Woman was great. They managed to dig just enough into the horrors of war to get their point across but not so deep that it dragged the movie out of the comfort zone a comic movie should exist in. Good script, good cast, good movie. Very reminiscent of a Marvel movie.

Oh, and it took me a minute to realize that the grizzled Amazon war captain was Princess Buttercup.

Hell no. Cap 1was campy and acceptable only because it meant we were getting the Avengers. WW was more on par with Winter Soldier.

That's what held Cap1 back and it's also what made WW shine. Cap1 was made simply to introduce him and other elements for the Avengers. How he got his powers, why he's still alive after 70 years, the tesserac. WW as you stated earlier PM, made very little mention to the DCEU. It focused soley on her character and the story, which was a very good story.

Yep. They concerned themselves with telling a good story before building the universe and it paid off. Let's hope DCEU builds on this and tells more great stories.

Edit: Marvel eventually got the hang of telling great or engaging & entertaining stories while also universe building. The Cap movies do more universe building than any of the others, yet the last two were great (Winter Soldier) and engaging entertainment (Civil War). This isn't easy, but they have found a great balance there that hasn't been found in the Thor movies yet.

Civil War spoke very little of Wakanda. If anything I'd say rewatching Age of Ultron would help more, depending on what you're looking for.

It looks ****ing amazing. Absolutely cannot wait. I'll buy me and Mrs. PM tickets the day they're available.

That cast is unbelievable.

I think it looks pretty good but I'm not nearly as pumped as you guys seem to be. Visually, it looks pretty awesome and different than a lot of Marvel movies.

I don't think I've ever been more excited about a preview.

I'm watching The Dark Knight for the hell I don't even know how many'th time and god damn was The Joker fantastic -- Ledger's performance and the writing of the character were perfect.

For me it's easily one of the greatest villains in the history of film.

Such a shame not to see the full arc of the character, but obviously even more of a shame to lose such a young talent.
