    Still, I think Marvel is slowly starting to realize that the only way they're getting X-Men properties back is by playing nice, not playing hardball.

    I'd say it's the opposite, they're probably getting the rights back to other Marvel properties by using the TV rights as a bargaining chip. So in actuality it's FOX who has to play nice if they want to expand those X-Men properties from just film to television (doubly so if their films aren't having strong box office numbers like they used to).

    That was another trade that Fox opened up themselves.

    Both sides have to play nice because both sides have something the other needs. Being petty children has done nothing but harm both franchises at this point. It's really overdue that they start to make sure that stupid shit doesn't get in the way of business.

    Fox made the deal so the Deadpool writers can change the character of Supersonic Teenage Warhead. Apparently they can't make character overhauls without Marvel signing off on it.

    it's just a matter of time until the FF and X-men film rights revert back to Marvel, they already have the infinity gauntlet thanks to Di$ney lololol

    I just can't think of the gauntlet without all the cosmic characters

    How are we not having at least silver surfer in this sumbitch

    Yeah the Infinity wars always had the Surfer.
    At least were getting Adam Warlock.

    And the Nova core is a thing, but we haven't seen an actual Nova, a Captain Universe, Shuma-Gorath, or Mephisto yet.

    I read on some blog somewhere that Adam Warlock isn't slated to be in Infinity Wars and will just show up in Guardians 3

    Not sure how true it is

    My biggest peeve of the movie was the Deus ex machina they pulled in the third act to de-power one of the main characters so that he's back lvl. 1, whoop-de-fucking doo...

    why rocket isn't the de facto leader of the group for the longest time still boggles me.

    not owning a badass spaceship like quill does probably leaves him playing second fiddle

    i was actually referring to character traits which rocket exhibits in the stories, one of which was natural leadership qualities.
    quill was written to be a dick in the books (still is to some extent) and him having a ship means squat when it comes to team dynamics.

    i mean, he supposedly died along with richard rider after that cancerverse incident and him coming back didn't amount to much except as a means to write out j'son in the subsequent story arcs. good thing rocket #1 came out recently, i hope they take him to new heights character-wise.

    No longer having Bendis phone it in on the main Guardians book may help.

    Every time I think of Elizabeth Banks I see this in my mind
    0f0c011d32c8be15143f7f0117898e4d7c092fcc24943fc62122e779afe5afbb.jpg

    Cate Blanchett, Queen of the Elves

    The difference is when Cate Blanchett plays a creepy role shes still looks amazing.
    Not to say nether woman is unattractive in real life. Elizabeth Banks IRL is a hottie and I wouldn't mind being her Krispy kreme

    Most of the ratings from AOS is dvr and Hulu. Freeing up the space makes sense in that case. But a new show usually doesn't debut on a Friday

    That shows very little faith in the product.

    That's about as dumb as WB putting Young Justice on some proprietary stream service rather than Netflix... You know, the entire reason it was resurrected in the first place.

    Inhumans show will premiere on IMAX first before airing on TV. That's not a sign of little faith. DVR and streaming are a thing now I don't see the Friday Nights being the death slot it was years ago.

    it could have survived but i dont think it would have had the freedom or the right fanbase they have right now.

    That's because CBS has nothing but people too old to understand how streaming or the internet in general works.
