#6: How did Fury get the Tesseract?

Thats not a plothole and is clearly stated. Howard Stark was shown finding it at the end of Cap, given that he worked with SHIELD it's not a leap to get to Fury having possession of it

I actually saw this last night and wanted to post it, just because it's so ridiculous IMO. Seems like he's reaching on a lot and he doesn't seem to really understand what he's talking about at all.

Yeah his complaints/their complaints are ridiculous. And they're complaining about "plot holes" is ridiculous. The whole article is.

Exactly it's like he's created what he thinks are problems that people are ignoring. Problems that aren't there just things he has his own convoluted view on. Like you said he really is talking about stuff without really knowing much about it. His number 10 problem is that Disney bought Marvel I mean come on haha.

That guy is an idiot and clearly nowhere near a professional writer. He's even insulting people in the comments section when they disagree with him. He's just another butthurt dweller. I wish I had my time back.

So is this Marvel special tonight going to be very Cap2 spoilery? I've been doing really good of avoiding all spoilers so I don't want the program to ruin it. Maybe I'll just close my eyes and cover my ears during the Cap stuff haha.

"10 problems with the MCU nobody seems to acknowledge"

10 problems I have with the MCU - why is noone listening to me?! He should join the Hype and stop writing articles if he's not going to offer anything above the level of debate here.

Hahah I read that article and kind of laughed, some of his points are a bit valid but others are outlandish.

Then, in the comments he's calling people idiots and citing the greatness of MoS and the Nolan BatFilms... So yeah, he's irrelevant.

Here are the reasons guys, Discuss:

Disney’s Acquisition Of Marvel

Poorly Set-Up Cinematic Universe

Too Much Damn Comedy

Thor 2 and IM3 went over board but the jokes were funny and I laughed, so they did their job imo. I guess some people mistake situational humour and actual cracking jokes. Most of the comedy/humour in those films I have mentioned was mostly situational. Tony was not cracking jokes when Pepper fell nor was Thor when Loki died.

It’s The Producer’s Vision Over The Director’s

Other than Thor: The Dark World and IM2, Feige has been hands off. When they let Shane Black with total control over IM3, fans rioted because the film detracted itself from the so-called 'Marvel' formula. If it wasn't for Feige, this cinematic universe would be non-existent. Even if he's hands on, I appreciate the work he's done.

Nobody Seems To Care About Plot Inconsistencies

The Heroes Are Inconsistent

The Critics Now Live In A Bubble

There’s A New Schism Between Comic Book Fans And Non-Comic Book Fans
Quote:
When Disney took over, the comics were made meaningless. Save for the beginning, Thor was nothing like its comic counterpart: they made up half the characters and completely ignored his time serving as a doctor called Donald Blake. There was no mention of the Holocaust in Captain America, despite that being a major plot point in the comics (95% of the writers/artists were Jewish). And The Avengers got the original team wrong: the roster was supposed to consist of Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Wasp, and – believe it or not – Ant-Man.


The Villains Are Lame

I kinda agree with that to some extent. But Red Skull, Loki, Stane, Winter Soldier, Pierce and Killian have all fared from decent to great villains imo. Malekith was just wasted, he totally sucked

Plot-Induced Stupidity

My opinion on the rest of his reasons?

Disney does not interfere with what Marvel is doing, like they don't interfere with Pixar nor will they interfere with Star Wars.

Aren't heroes just as inconsistent as the comics? And I love how he expected every individual hero to get at least two movies before the Avengers. While that might have been nice in a perfect world, I don't think the audience would have had the patience for it.

Not to mention the actors aren't sticking around THAT long either.

Lol, he's actually going that far? I agree that the MCU is not perfect and i was a little disapointed by The Avengers, but most of his statements make absolutely no sence. A scism between comic book and movie fans? Fans of comics are accepting the MCU much more easily than they did with the previous X-Men or Spider-Man films.

He does have a point with the villains though, but even then he start complaining about Killian, who was actually decent.

I also don't like how he keeps bringing The Man of Steel up as if it was some misunderstood masterpiece.

I broke down and read that article, 10 problems with the MCU.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Disney merger take place after IM2?

I was thinking the same thing. Also, I don't think you need to put that in spoilers.

Malekith was underused, but he didn't suck. The character was well done, he just... didn't do anything interesting. He had no defining moment.

Also, Whiplash was almost a good villain, but as the film neared its end, he just turned into a complete lame. His suit was boring and the final battle was way too quick. Everything before that was good stuff.

Regardless if some of his 10 points are true (and I mean if you're going to make 10 points at least a couple of them are likely to be true even by accident lol) that level of article would qualify as terrible even if it was a thread opener at IMDB. There's no point leaving a place like this to read that when we have at least more informed discussions on the subject already.
