Well I think the idea of Star Wars in the MCU is awful.

Didn't they have tron suits in the comics for a bit?

I could seem them having "the Grid" Sam Flynn enter the real world and become a hero in the MCU.

Why the heck would they need Vin for Spider-Man? Honestly... how does that even halfway make sense? What could Vin be doing that they'd need to contact him

Obviously putting it together with something else in the MCU isn't merging of the brands. Putting it GOTG with Avengers isn't merging of the brands, because they already are in the same universe, unless you think they're going to stop making Avengers and GOTG separate and make it one merged GOTG-Avengers franchise. If not, then you're not talking about merging the brands anymore than they are right now, so it can't be something in the MCU currently.

And if it's not in the MCU currently... and it's not Spider-Man... WOWZA. You can put safe bets on it not being a Fox property, and if that's the case, then you can put safe bets on it not being something from the Marvel universe, you're talking about something from a different brand.

So now where in lala-land because the only 'brands' Vin Diesel needs to be on the ground floor in are Fast and Furious, xXx and Riddick. Riddick's story doesn't mesh with current day anything, so that's right out. And while I love me some FnF and xXx, neither of them seem like a great Marvel Universe adventure. That would be, in short, a waste.

So then we start asking about non-Vin properties that he might be on the ground floor on... and that way madness lies. Something is inaccurate here, or at least, very easily misinterpreted.

My guess is that Sony and Marvel are going to work out some sort of deal seeing as how Vin Deisel is Groot and the symbiote has to get to Earth somehow and perhaps the Guardians are going to play a small role in the black costume saga.

The only other brand to merge that's coming in 2016 would be X-Force tying into the MCU which I could only see happening if the Brood are tied up with the Ms. Marvel rights and Vulcan belongs to GOTG and Fox wants to work out a shared universe as they've had issues with shared characters like Ronan, Viper and Quicksilver.

Kang already is part of the Avengers rights and Fox probably wants to use him in a Fantastic Four movie since he's related to both franchises and in return Marvel knows that Wolverine, Storm, Rogue and Beast are all Avengers but belong to Fox while they also probably want to use Omega Red in a Black Widow solo film.

Disney and Newscorp really need to let go of the bad blood between them. The franchises are reaching a point where overlap is inevitable and I have no idea who owns Excalibur, Starjammers or Alpha Flight anymore, or worse, if these properties inhabit a grey area and are unfilmable.

And then with Marvel doing a Blade reboot, who owns Xarus? He was introduced in a Blade/X-Men crossover. Also, Juggernaut was in X3 but he's also a Hulk and Spider-Man villain. Without any sort of brand merging, there's eventually going to be too much red tape to move any franchise forward.

All studios have plenty of villains that i don't see them making deals so they could use one specific villain that was in a specific story they want to adapt. No comic book story has been adapted with keeping all of the same characters as they were in the comics.

I don't think Sony cares if the symbiote arrives buy a nameless shuttle, metoer, Groot or is made in a Lab.

Fox has Annihilus, Doom, Galactus, Moleman and probably others that they don't need Kang.

Iron Patriot is a prime example, instead of working ut deals to use Norman osborn as the Iron Patriot down they road they just used Rhodes in the armour

You forgot Super Skrull. I'd also like to see a Frightful Four lineup with Wizard, Trapster, Mad Thinker and Lucia Von Bardas. None of those four could carry their own film but together I could see a Frightful Four lineup like that.

Perhaps a Phase 3 movies is called "Merging of the Brands"

Its hard to know what Vin is talking about, as others have said, it wont be Spiderman or the X-Men in the MCU, I cant see it anyway, so what else could he be talking about?

Mixing the cosmic characters with the Avengers makes the most sense, as lets face it other than Thanos GOTG isnt connected to the rest of the MCU, yet anyway.

Great write-up.

I agree that having all the characters under one studio would be too much especially with their tendancy to force a connection between everyone. Plenty work best seperate, Iron Fist and Luke Cage for example need to be street level and have no connection to SHIELD

A GOTG/Avengers seems a natural crossover given how they are planning Thanos out.

Thank you droidwarrior, please spread the topic around if you can, I'd like to hear what others think about it as well.

I just wrote what I thought, it's too much of a hassle to assemble (ha, ha, ha) all of these big name characters into one movie. Too much background noise and stepping on toes.

They need to continue building up their singular characters and occasionally have a crossover. I would love to see Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel have her own flick then join the Avengers so that the only female isn't Black Widow. And what about Spider-Woman? She could be cool too.

It's better to have interchangeable parts rather than a mega ensemble in my opinion. That's how it works in the comics.

GOTG/Avengers isn't even remotely a "merging of brands." Nor is it "something really big that people have been talking about for a long time." Trying to say GOTG is a separate "brand" from Avengers is like saying Captain America is a separate "brand" from Iron Man, or Hulk, or Thor; in which case we've already had a "merging of 'brands'" in 2012, making that point totally moot.

Separate titles under the Marvel Studios heading is *not* the same thing as separate brands that would require a "merger."

Examples of separate brands, as far as Marvel Studios is concerned: Spider-Man. X-Men. Fantastic Four. Namor (currently still farmed out to Universal). Star Wars. Disney/Pixar properties. Riddick, or other Vin properties. Hell....even *DC Comics.*

Same thing I keep saying:
Vin Diesel as Kingpin.
Marvel Studios reboots Daredevil; puts Vin as Kingpin as the main villain; shares Kingpin with TASM in a crossover story, and officially shares the MCU with Sony's Spider-Man (sub-)universe.

Plug all that into Vin's comments, and it makes perfect sense.

Funny how those who take this literally seem to be ignoring the three words he said after merging of brands.

"In A Way"

He didn't say it's going to be a merging of brands. He said "its LIKE the merging of brands IN A WAY"

There's a difference.

Could be anything, but sounds much more like a merging of Cosmic Marvel with Avengers Marvel.

Thor has already soundly "merged" Cosmic Marvel with Avengers Marvel. There's nothing there that's left to "merge," since the Asgardians, Thanos, the Chitauri and The Other have all been introduced through Thor, Odin, and Loki.

I actually made both points in my article. I interpret "merging of brands" in many ways and how each could affect the movies going forward.

It's very much up for interpretation, and just because you don't think some people want something doesn't mean they don't.

Bet that movie he is talking about is Avengers 3....or, I firmly believe it's going to be multi-studio crossover Infinity Gauntlet movie.

I think it's going to be The Avengers meets James Bond. I mean, they just moved Ant-Man away from the next Bond release date.

They don't want the competition because they are going to be merged in A3. It's the only thing that makes sense when you think about it!

Ah, the Internet. So much silliness.

I'm guessing that Marvel may be bringing it's various different types of movies together (techno-thriller IM, Political Thriller/war movie CA, Cosmic GOTG, mystic Thor and Doctor Strange, etc) in one gigantic project, Infinity Gauntlet seems like a logical choice.
