Hey look, I wrote a thing and they actually posted it!
I have to admit I am liking what they are doing with Daisy and Maria in this book and it does have some good character moments, but ugh the mind-wipe and the blatant MCU tie-ins are a big turn off.
It’s not like I don’t welcome concepts from other mediums into the comics (Harley Quinn didn’t originate in Batman comics after all and neitheir did Kryptonite in Superman comics) but take time to develop them and don’t try to force things.
A lot of MCU fans who are getting into comics from what I have seen are gravitating towards comics such as YA, JiM, Captain Marvel, Avengers Assemble and Hawkeye moreso than Secret Avengers and those comics have little to nothing to do with MCU stuff so there you go.
Following the $174.1 million opening weekend for Iron Man 3, both DeadlineandThe Hollywood Reporterpublished articles Tuesday musing what the future might hold for Marvel Studios, and how that will be affected by whether or not Robert Downey Jr. will return for another outing as Iron Man.
According to the Hollywood Reporter piece, Marvel currently has scripts for Blade and Ms. Marvel (the article’s description, rather than the current “Captain Marvel”) features produced by a “writing program [Marvel] uses as a concept generator],” and that Iron Fist, Black Panther, Runaways and (as previously reported) Doctor Strange are “other projects on the horizon.” That’s not an indication that any of those will for sure be produced as a film, but rather that they’re properties that Marvel Studios has interest in for the post-Ant-Man (scheduled for release on Nov. 6, 2015) future.
Additionally, THR states that Marvel has regained the licenses to not only Daredevil and Blade, but also Ghost Rider (formerly controlled by Sony, who released films starring the character in 2007 and 2012) and Power Man, which was formerly in development at Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony.
I’ll believe it when I see it tbh but this is somewhat encouraging, I guess.
I hope this is true, crossing my fingers!
Also if Carol appears they might as well just call her Captain instead of Ms.
