But, this is Marvel. They gotta keep that assembly line going.
So glad to see the childish DC vs Marvel mentality still going on.....I was afraid posters were starting to mature on here and there would be no need for mods anymore...phwewww, my job is safe.

Sorry, did you see Iron Man 2? Or the two Iron Man 3 trailers?

Yeah. The Marvel vs DC mentality is kind of silly. Until WB/DC gets their act together, (and MOS is a good direction to go) then all we have to compare to Marvel's work is the TDK trilogy, Superman Returns, and perhaps Watchmen.

I like the TDK trilogy, but I don't think those films are quite GOOD enough to best out the entirety of Marvel's films.

Man, don't talk like that...

I was too thinking that the individual films will not go big after Avengers, but that's a good challenge for Marvel - to once again prove that these characters are relevant on their own. I hope IM3 is way better than 2, and even if I'm not as hyped for it as I am for Man of Steel, I hope it's a good fun.

I do only read DC but I love both DC and Marvel films. I'm admittedly more DC but I hate when people try n do DC is better than Marvel & visa versa. Can't we just enjoy all the superb CBMs were getting?

Well said there's idiots who want the Marvel films to be bad just because they're DC. I don't know about anyone else but I never hope a film is bad.

Yea I love the marvel films! And I hope all of them are awesome. We are starting to get spoiled a bit with all these films lol! I just hope DC starts to spoil us as much as marvel has.

Hated this. He should have at least landed some punches. Or came back for them.

The thing that I hate is that FX (and AMC and maybe a few other stations) are probably going to be showing Superman Returns out the wazoo come Man of Steel time. I hate that because I'm worried it will give people a bad taste for Superman and the wrong impression then they won't see the movie. Although it isn't a horrible movie, I don't know anyone who became a Superman fan because of it, and I'm worried showing it may do more harm than good for MOS.

This is a big day for Marvel. Will someone finally break the "3 'curse'" rule and make a "3" that is at least as good, if not better than the original 2? Fingers crossed. I hope the streak ends because it hasn't yet, even TDKR is the weakest in its series.

That said, so far the movie does look better than IM2, IMO.

What a lot of you seem to forget are target audiences and previous awareness.


Star Trek and IM3 are targeting the same audience, are being released close to one another. That's one reason their marketing is so aggressive right now. MOS has the same target audience (families, teens, couples, singles), but is 6 weeks later. It is not in competition with the other 2 films.

As for other major franchises - Hangover 3? F&F 6? There is audience crossover, but those films are targeted for older (R rated). WBs real competition is After Earth (which is trying REALLY hard to use Will Smiths name, but not Shyamalan), and the Wolverine (out a month later). It's doing absolutely fine.

I respectfully disagree.

But C. Lee gave us a friendly reminder to not feed the fire again, so let's get back to the goddamn Man of Steel!

Even though there really isn't anything new to talk about... I really hope things kick off this week. I can wait for the trailer a little longer, but now that I think about it, we really don't have much promo images, except the ones from the magazines.

I personally have no interest in Iron Man 3. I'm hoping Wolverine gets good reviews. Thor is a maybe depending if the plot is worth it. MOS has me locked.

I..I..seriously? From all the Marvel universe, from 2008 till now, I save..uhm..2 movies..IronMan and Avengers..The rest is just mediocre, movies been made to bring the Avengers project forward..In my opionion Marvel's movies cannot be compared in terms of quality (every aspect) o the TDK trilogy..

The trailers for Iron Man 3 got me interested. Iron Man 2 was awful but this looks on the same level as the first one. I know nothing about Thor 2, but I thought the first one was fun. Wolverine can only be better than the last. That being said, none of them are on the same level for me as MAN OF STEEL.

It's a great time to be a comic book fan.

How can people ever go back to solo films after seeing a team up? The same way we do in the comics. These are great, timeless characters. Their personal stories are just as ravishing as a wider scaled team up film. And Iron Man 3 looks to prove that.
