    I personally think Iron Man is Marvels version of Batman.. Billionaires, Playboys, homemade suits and weapons, Wayne Industries, Start Enterprises.. All the same except Ironman is more about weapons and Batman is more hand2hand..

    Why does Marvel need to answer to Batman?

    Did i say they need to?

    I think itd be smart for them to capitalize on something similar. After all, Batman is probably the most famous superhero. Spiderman a close second.

    Once again, they dont need to do that, but what I'm really trying to say is I think Marvel needs a gritty and somewhat real world (emphasis on somewhat as it is the MCU after all) franchise, and I think Daredevil would be perfect for that

    Hey Marvel, do your own thing, you've got plenty of cool characters and stories to mine from.

    I was just thinking, how about directors? Heres a few of my picks:

    Cap 3 - Drew Goddard
    Black Panther - Ryan Fleck/Anna Boden
    Doctor Strange - Danny Boyle :word:
    Thor 3 - Guillermo del Toro

    idk. just mulling. :)

    Wow...
    they can still do their own thing, I didnt say to make it like Batman did i? No.

    I just think itd be cool if they made a dark and gritty film for Daredevil. Not to be like Batman. But because Daredevil has always been dark and gritty :dry:

    Youre so defensive of your marvel characters over here... I was basically saying itd be cool if marvel made a dark superhero film, and two people called me out...and what do most people think of when they hear dark superhero film? Batman. I dont think it should be copying Batman at all, as Daredevil is a great character in his own right.

    Its too bad that Del Toro didnt get to make the first Thor, he was attached for a while, I loved the way he was describing how hed make it. Kenneth Branaghs movie was great, but it fell flat and only accomplished the mininum of what a good superhero movie needs. I didnt think there was much creativity involved in Thor. There were no shots or images that really wowed me, aside from the scenes with the Frost Giants. If Guillermo Del Toro directed the first one I cant help but feel like it would have been the superior film.

    Branagh did the mininum, as did Joe Johnston. I think they are both solid films and i can rewatch both but there was a LOT more they could have done with both of those. Is that the general consensus of the fanboys right now? Hopefully Thor 2 and Cap 2 arent as dull (i mean that in the politest way possible as I adore both of those characters) I just wish those two films could have been the same quality as The Avengers. If Del Toro had done the first Thor i feel that it could have been that same quality

    I actually prefer Del Toro for Strange and hope that Taylor hits it out of the park and warrants his return for Thor 3 so we can have some consistency in the franchise.

    Thor 2 is looking sooooooo good... I can definitely see the GOT influence.

    Del Toro on Strange would be INSANE. I can see him going in a crazy trippy direction, theres so much you can do with Dr Strange's world

    I absolutely agree. In fact. Id compare Cap to Superman, Iron Man to Batman and Thor to Wonder Woman. My comparison of Daredevil to Batman was because of the dark and gritty aspect which Iron Man is lacking

    Actually, you said it twice.

    Daredevil would be fine, I just wouldn't want a whole sale Nolan lite take, because that's all it would be viewed as. Going back to gritty 70s crime films as as a source of inspiration is great, but don't just rip of TDK.

    Black Panther, on the other hand, has no business being Marvel's answer to Batman. The world he inhabits needs to be similar in tone to the other Avengers solo films.

    The main guy I would like to see get involved is Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City, I Robot). I think he's got a great style and I think he'd be a potential good fit for a number of films.. Captain America, Hulk, Daredevil, Punisher, Black Panther or perhaps even Dr. Strange or Namor.

    Stephen Norrington is another one... Ok, his LXG wasn't fantastic but it was ok and his work on the first Blade film was good. Do Marvel have the rights to Blade back yet? Perhaps they could get him back to reboot that or do Midnight Sons, if they can get Ghost Rider back too.. Perhaps Inhumans?

    After seeing Dredd, Pete Travis is a name that comes to mind. I heard his Vantage Point wasn't that great but I thought Dredd was pretty awesome. Perhaps he would only be suited to something like Punisher though..

    Someone for Heroes for Hire... Just spitballing here but possibly someone like John Singleton (I know he was supposedly attached to Luke Cage for ages), Paul McGuigan, Michael Davis , Joe Cornish or Pete Travis..

    Duncan Jones and Vadim Jean are directors who get mentioned a lot for projects like this. I hope to see them join the MCU sometimes.

    I'd also note that Fox owns Super-Skrull by way of FF, but Marvel has the rights to the Skrulls as an alien race. And although Namor is technically a mutant, Marvel has the rights to him; he is not specifically an X-Men character.

    Taking a more conservative route than I did before

    Cinematic Releases
    2015 - Avengers 2, Planet Hulk
    2016 - Cap 3, Dr. Strange
    2017 - Black Panther, Thor 3, Captain Marvel
    2018 - IM4/War Machine , Avengers 3

    Television Shows
    SHIELD - continues
    Daredevil - Begins

    Live Action Shorts (5-15 mins long, released on cinematic releases' DVDs to boost sales)
    Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Heroes for Hire, She-Hulk, Black Widow & Hawkeye (maybe a short film trilogy?), Wonder Man, The Sentry (yeah, I said it!), Cloak and Dagger, Photon, Moondgraon

    Someone mentioned directors, I'd want Bay for Planet Hulk, F. Gary Gray for Cap 3, Del Toro for Dr. Strange, Antione Fuqua for Black Panther, ??? for Thor 3, Patty Jenkins for Captain Marvel, Jon Favreau for Iron Man 4 and of course, Whedon for Avengers 3.
    McG as showrunner for Daredevil.

    Wow!!! Godbless you man, I never thought I would see someone say that.

    1st I always thought Proyas was good for Batman... The crow ,, dark city.. I think he could have brought allot to Batman. Proyas is cool

    2nd Blade1 is my fav of the marvel charater movies... Why could not Norrington continue???

    Anyways I agree sir.. Nice Picks

    Bay can stay as far away from the MCU as humanly possible. I'd rather them let me direct Planet Hulk than Michael Bay. And I REALLY hope they don't let me direct Planet Hulk. :/

    I think Marvel Studios will do a reboot of the entire MCU if they ever get the rights to Spider-Man, X-Men & Fantastic Four back. I don't see those franchises fitting into a MCU that already has a lot of history. & then once Marvel has those franchises back, I think we'll finally see the "James Bond" approach to comic book movies. Unless DC does it first....lol I kid, DC will never do anything first in comic book movies again.

    Anyway, I think Phase III might be the start of the street heroes. Perhaps they can even start taking over as the main characters of the MCU, since I'm going to assume Downey, Evans & Hemsworth won't stick around after Avengers 3.

    I think Pete Travis could pull off DD or Punisher as well. I just watched Dredd... very well done IMO.. Look forward to seeing more from pete.. I actually think Karl Urban could be a good DD.

    Planet Hulk: JJ Abrams, Zack Snyder, Ridley Scott (Big movie, needs a big name)

    Daredevil: Joe Carnahan, Spike Lee, Robert Rodriguez (Rodriguez did wonders for another Frank Miller comic flick. Why not again?)

    although Daredevil isn't a film I'm too concerned about at this point. If he's the star of a TV series I suggest John Dahl or Steve Shill.
