How Will Marvel Bring The XMen, The Fantastic Four & The Silver Surfer into the MCU?

wallpaper-1199506Well, I have some thoughts..

Invisible Woman by Artgem (aka Stanley Lau)

Invisible Woman by Artgem (aka Stanley Lau)

The simplest explanation is not always the most fun. Yes, you could say a school of mutants has always existed in West Chester, NY, but chose not to engage in any of the world threatening struggles– boring, (and also, very unlike the X-Men to ignore such threats). And the Baxter Building has been in the Microverse the whole time? –not buying it.

You could solve it easily with time travel, via the Infinity Gauntlet, with Captain Marvel resetting the entire universe, but one of things is not like the others– enter the XMen in an end credit trailer to the deafening screams of Marvel fans (I would be one of them), as Stan Lee begins reading a copy of the Daily Bugle with Fantastic Four on the front page. This is certainly scifi plausible and would be acceptable, but I have another theory..

What if..

..during the final battle with Thanos, Scarlet Witch alters reality with her magic, destroying the Infinity Stones, ceasing Thanos to have ever existed, but also inadvertently alters the reality of the universe. The previously vaporized superheroes return and BOOM the XMen now exist, and have always existed according to everyone, except Wanda. Wolverine, Rogue and SpiderWoman (Jessica Drew) are standing beside their teammates, the Avengers, The Fantastic Four can be seen far away atop the Baxter Building, and far, far away, the Silver Surfer makes a deal with Galactus to save Zenn-la.

rating: not as good as the first one, but see it in theatres, watch it in 3d is optional.

ex_machina

ex-machina

an engaging A.I. / robot story that is more about .. just see it.

rating: see it in theatres

NE9b1ITP6Tppcg_1_bmaggie

arnold zombie movie.

rating: borderline: theatres vs wait for dvd. if you love everything zombie, then yes, see it in theatres; as a movie goes, waiting for dvd/watching it at home is fine.   may 8

infini_movieposter

 infini

everything you’d expect from a good sci-fi film, spaceships, bio weapons, rescue mission..

rating: i want to see it. a weak theatre rating or a great dvd rating. a great time to kill theatre film, fortunately for us, the sci fi fans, we get it both on itunes and in theatres, at THE SAME TIME.   may 8

Mad-Max-Fury-Road-lovely-daymad max : fury road

the apocalyptic world we have grown to love, and bonus! no crazy mel gibson! although he would be a perfect mentally unstable villain in this world.

it’s a reboot, with that awesome car, the australian ford falcon, but with a new story.

rating: see it in theatres, unless the apocalypse scares you.   may 15

timelapse_movietimelapse

sci-fi / time travel / Ai/machine

rating: wait for dvd.   may 15

MV5BMjM5MzU5ODUyMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODA1MDAxNTE@._V1_SY317_CR3,0,214,317_AL_

dark star: h.r. giger’s world

h.r. giger created the ‘alien’ creature and many others.

rating: fascinating behind the scenes story about the top sci-fi creatures, but wait for dvd, not necessary to see in theatres.   may 15

MV5BMTcwOTMzNTY4N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTgxMzk3MTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

cowboys vs dinosaurs

not a sequel to ‘coboys vs aliens.’

rating: do not see in theatres. do not pay for a dvd/streaming rental, wait for netflix and only if you’re bored.   may 19

Tomorrowland-2015-Movie-Trailertomorrowland

rating: as good as it can be.. even with george clooney, but typ disney/family-friendly/non-adventurous storytelling.

rating: wait for dvd.   may 22

sunshine_supermansunshine superman

not about superman & how he recharges his powers from the sun, about the father of the base jumping movement.

rating: if you love action sports, see it theatres w friends who also love action sports, otherwise, dvd rental.   may 22

2012-Los-Angeles-Goes-Undersan andreas

perhaps they tried to make this film a little too epic.. they failed, it looks more like ‘2012,’ a laughable disaster movie that’s too over-the-top to be believable; just add aliens, robots and godzilla, don’t pretend it’s a serious movie. also, not the sequel to ‘volcano’ (1997).

rating: the epic scenes will be best in the theatres, but as far as a movie goes, with things that make a movie good, like a good story, wait for dvd; unless you like to see california fall off into the ocean-traffic problem solved, but seriously, save your money.   may 29

jurassic-world-poster-indominus-rex

jurassic world

spoiler alert: the dinosaurs escape and eat people.

rating: wait for dvd. it will be better than jurassic park 2 & 3, but the plot is basically the same as the first one, the dinosaurs escape and eat people. the effects are definitely theatre worthy, just don’t encourage them to make 10 more of these, (they have plans to make two more right away, depending on ticket sales).   june 12

Terminator Genisys - Posterterminator-genisys-motion-posterterminator genisys

rating: see in theatres, despite drastic story twists, and the new spelling of genesis.   july 1

6a017615d0a3fb970c01bb07a731d8970dantboy

not at all related to the upcoming marvel superhero film, ‘ant-man.’

rating: it’s for kids, wait for dvd or not at all, unless you are a kid or a parent renting it for kids.   July 3

MV5BMjgwMjY2MDg2Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDAwMjQxNTE@._V1_SY317_CR7,0,214,317_AL_

aurora

a lower budget sci-fi with a great, but familiar story of A.I.’s deciding humans are the greatest threat to humanity/earth and “EXTERMINATE.EXTERMINATE.” 60 years later..a post apocalyptic world run by machines.

rating: wait for dvd.   july 7

Minions-Filmminions

exactly what you’d expect from the title, the best part of ‘despicable me.’

rating: if love ’em, go see ’em, but for everyone else, waiting for dvd will be just fine.   july 10

selfless-banner-photoself/less

intriguing  sci fi thriller.

rating: interesting, but wait for dvd.   july 10

antman_nuposter

ant-man

not as great as it could have been with edgar wright. also, Hank Pym is not the creator of Ultron in the movies ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ nor in ‘Ant-man,’ but does create Ultron in the comics.

rating: will not be another ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ but will try to replicate that style. will not be epic, but will be entertaining. see it in theatres.   july 17

mr-holmes-poster

mr holmes

ian mckellen has to do something now that they gave magneto to michael fassbender 😦

an alternate take on sherlock holmes, well acted, good story.

rating: a great dvd rental.   july 17

pixels

i used to like adam sandler movies..

 it’s ‘grown-ups’ ruining your favorite 80s retro video games.

rating: dvd (but only to see it for a giant pac-man eating san francisco), i would rather see ‘hot tub time machine 2,’ than this.   july 24

mission-impossible-rogue-nation-teaser-trailer-and-poster-is-out-mission-impossible-rog-317255mission impossible : rogue nation

tom cruise, jeremy renner. hopefully not like ‘jason born 4’ w jeremy renner.

rating: as with any great action film, seeing it in the theatre is always best. i really want this to be the best mission impossible yet, but i am not convinced : see it in theatres.   july 31

fantasticfourfantastic four

another fox film with marvel characters. too soon for a reboot.

rating: will be good, but not great. wait for dvd. (if you must see every superhero movie in theatres, go for it, seeing the negative zone and anilhilus will be interesting. i will be seeing it in theatres).   aug 8
