Didn't the Kate character bang some other character in a prison camp or something?

The gritty bad boy dude after everyone (and the show) had her romantically involved with the main character (the oldest brother from Party of 5)?..

Your second spoiler is incorrect.

Michael B Jordan’s Erik Killmonger is being called the best villain in the MCU (the MCU has weak villlains so take that for what it’s worth). His character is fleshed out with a backstory and motivations that brought some audience members to tears.


That's good to hear. I can't wait to see it

Unfortunately no. Black Panther is so highly anticipated and for many of their private early screenings, executives are able to get as many spots as they like. Not this time. My friend was only able to secure 2 spots instead of the usual 6 I get for my family. So we'll be seeing it opening night.

I'm stoked about Black Panther, hopefully people will remember that this a comic book movie.


I’m too excited for this movie!

What do you mean?


I mean that I'm a comic book fan as well as a fan of the MCU and thus excited for this movie like other BP/MCU fans. The premiere was last night and the some of the reactions on twitter are a bit over the top imho to where I question if they know the orgins of the BP character/comic.

a group of DC fans want to see Black Panther fail so much that they've put together a plan to sabotage the film. A group has made an event on Facebook called "Give Black Panther a Rotten Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes" that is encouraging people to go onto the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes and deliberately give the Marvel film an artificially low score. The event, which as of the time of this article has nearly 2,000 people on board, is in response to what the creators claim was Disney planting bad reviews of or paying critics for negative press for DCEU films.

I think it's pretty sad that some people are this concerned with the rotten tomato ratings of movies.

I think Tony Stark makes it out of Infinity War alive, but he's going to be a changed man. I missed the last Thor, and even Spidey. But I'm all in Infinity War

I tried watching it for the first time last night with the Mrs. The first 30 minutes were a train wreck of corny nonsense and I turned it off. I'm sure it gets better once the villain, and Hulk are introduced.

I'll give it another go soon without the wife. But I couldn't even defend keeping it on.

We watched Molly's Game instead, it was pretty good.

The last few pages of this thread are the only places I’ve seen people really dislike Thor 3. Just an interesting observation.

It wasn't as good the 2nd time, but still an entertaining movie.

Kodi is killing me. I haven’t found a great source like Exodus or Covenant used to be.

I’ve only seen it once, but my family enjoyed it. We laughed at Korg throughout the movie and just had more fun with this Thor than either of the first 2.

Korg was the funniest. The movie just seemed to have more of a slapstick type of comedy than the others in the MCU. Action was still great and I laughed more as the movie went on.

Whose ship was in the post credit scene?

Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Play The Joker in Standalone DC Movie


Three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play The Joker in a standalone DC movie for Warner Bros. Yes indeed, Variety reports that the Inherent Vice star has entered talks to lead the untitled Joker origin movie co-written and directed by Todd Phillips, the filmmaker behind War Dogs and The Hangover trilogy. Per the trade, Phoenix was Phillips’ top choice to star and after thinking it over, the actor has agreed to the role. Although now studio negotiations must begin, so this is far from a done deal.

Indeed, talks fell apart with Phoenix’s last brush with the superhero genre. The actor was in extensive talks to lead Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange for director Scott Derrickson, but he ended up backing out over concerns about the extensive press requirements that come with signing on to a Marvel movie. Although given Phoenix’s caliber and the position Warner Bros. is in with its DC properties, one imagines concessions could definitely made for the press-shy actor as a stipulation of signing onto this project.


We first learned of Phillips’ Joker movie last year, when word broke that a new banner was being formed at Warner Bros. to created DC Comics adaptations that would exist outside the continuity of the DC Extended Universe. This is how Jared Leto can still reprise his role as The Joker in Suicide Squad 2 without infringing upon this project, and how Phillips is able to lure actors of Phoenix’s caliber. Since these movies aren’t necessarily made to be franchises but instead ambitious one-offs, Phoenix may not have to sign an extensive contract that ties him to franchise obligations for years on end.

Leonardo DiCaprio was the first actor approached for this role, but that casting didn’t work out. The take for this Joker origin story is a 1980s-set gritty crime drama, more in the vein of Taxi Driver than a superhero movie. The story will delve into “what it took for the Joker to become a mastermind criminal.”

While reports swirled that Martin Scorsese was in talks to produce this film, he’s not mentioned in Variety’s most recent story so one imagines that’s either still in the works or won’t be panning out. Regardless, Scott Silver working with Phillips as co-writer on what has now become one of the most interesting DC projects Warner Bros. currently has in the works.


Other “standalone” DC movies have yet to be announced, but in the DCEU Warner Bros. has Shazam! currently filming, Aquaman in the can, and Suicide Squad 2, Flashpoint, and Wonder Woman 2 in active development to start production within the next year or so. But if this casting works out, it’s quite possible Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker movie might eclipse them all.
