Btw, you should have a made a thread called 'Are you tired of Wolverine being overexposed'. Just my two cents.

Truth and truth. I personally am always miffed when Iron Man is featured so much over his castmates, and I realize that starts with the way the universe was conceived, long before Avengers was ever scripted. But yeah, he can't hold a candle to Wolverine, which is probably why First Class was easily my favorite X-Men film.

if Andrew Garfield had a cameo any shorter than that in one of these films, you'd sure as hell count that as him being present

An appropriate wrestling analogy IMO is that Iron Man is like The Rock, while Wolverine is like Triple H.

I miss the Spidey days as well, though I think Iron Man earned that spot in recent years. Spidey needs better movies coming out, which I don't really see happening for a long while. That's okay with me, though. Spidey had his day in the sun for a while, and it was pretty sweet.

Seriously, though: The hype I had for Spider-Man 2 and 3 are unmatched. Even my hype for The Avengers didn't quite meet my excitement for those Spider-Man movies. Those were the days ...

I see nothing wrong with Spidey sharing the lime light with other characters. He hogged it long enough, other characters deserve a chance.

Right now Parker is pretty much non-existent until he comes back from the dead anyway.

Actually, in terms of being conceived, wasn't ant-man originally going to be the one to kick it off?

Yes and no. It was the first with a director, and very well could have been the first film, but the SLJ teaser ended up with Iron Man, so he was the spear of the Avengers Initiative. Perhaps maybe it would have ended up with Ant-Man if that had come out first, but I don't know what all the cause and effect that went into making the SLJ cameo happen.

There's no problem with Wolverine being front and centre, the main problem is that everyone else around him is underutilized and they feel worthless so that it's only Wolverine who can do it. X-2 balanced the characters out but it was still the Wolverine show. I like the X-Flicks especially X-2 but the OP who created this thread just wanted to troll. Nothing more.

Some more thread ideas for you!

"Are you tired of Batman being over exposed in DC Comics?"
"Are you tired of Loki being over exposed?"
"Are you tired of humanity being over exposed in everything?"

You're welcome!

I am so sick of Iron Man and his once a year appearances in MCU films. I think he should appear at least two times a year, maybe more. In fact, Marvel should start pumping out more films every year just so that Robert Downey Jr.'s armored alter ego can make even more appearances, not just in cameos but as a full-fledged costar. Iron Man makes everything better.

Also, Cyclops was ****ing wrong. Fact.

I don't think Iron Man is overexposed. He's gotten the most individual movies, but I don't think that was a big deal. We'll probably see that many movies from cap and thor. I wish Hulk would get more movies, I enjoyed TIH. As for BW and Hawkeye, they don't really deserve solo movies. I'm a fan of bW in the comics, but she's just kind of meh in the avengers, and Hawkeye is about the same. I think they've found a good balance with most of the Marvel movies, with the hulk being the only one who I think needs more solo movies.

I can't believe somebody made a thread about this.
