Default Re: IM4 in Phase 3?

I'm personally thinking it be better following Avengers 3, giving a chance for new properties to be developed and old ones such as Hulk revisited.

2 movies a year, nothing too crazy.

Planet Hulk is too much like John Carter for Disney to make the jump. And I doubt Black Panther happens because Disney may not have enough confidence in a black character. They probably think there won't be enough cross over appeal. Though Django does offer a solid counter argument.
That has no bearing on the reception of a MCU Black Panther film.
That was another crazy Tarantino film with ultraviolence and taking one of Americas biggest shames in a loud way.

The biggest problem with a Black Panther film is its potential execution.
Marvel Studios are masters at playing it safe. They make fun entertaining movies in a formulaic fashion and really don't take any risk.

IM1 actually did a bit with the way they handled Tony's abduction, but since then it has mostly been fun fluff.
Case in point, The Red Skull.

I rather not see a BP movie if they make it some "coming to america" superhero comedy.

If they have the balls to tackle Wakanda defying colonization and really highlighting Wakanda as a proud independent nation then I am all for it.

I really don't think another Marvel Studios movie will ever have as underwhelming a return as TIH did in this Post-Avengers era.

The public has trust in the MCU brand.

When TIH came shortly after Iron Man.
IM was a huge unexpected hit but it still wasn't enough of a hit to regain trust in the Hulk brand.

TIH was ambiguously marketed a sequel to Ang Lee's snoozer and to this day a lot of people still think Ang's Hulk is the first movie of the MCU.

Anyways, at this point people trust the brand. If a concerted effort is made to market this movie as clearly part of the extended MCU family it'll do at least as good as TFA $370.

Some see IM3 as a conclusion, I see it as a new beginning. Personally if I was following up that movie directly the destruction of his armors would signify him retiring but instead his fear pushing him to the more drastic step of intergrating the armour within himself, Extremis style, in order to feel secure in a world where he is quickly becoming outclassed.

Can't tell what they'll do with him in AoU though, if it really is a combination of his prehensile technology and Jarvis AI gone haywire I can't see him trusting his tech enough to integrate it within himself...
