    I mean, people act like the MCU never made Winter Soldier and Civil War....easily as political as anything Fox-Men has done, while also being very action-packed and balancing many heroes with everyone having standout moments and reasons to exist.

    I'm no MCU die-hard, but I'll give them credit where its due. They've elevated their leftover IP's(Iron Man, the Avengers, GotG) into juggernauts. I can't wait to see what they do with real, meaty content like the X-Men.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!

    I'm looking forward to see what people will say if it turns out like that, seriously. There seems to be some really interesting contempt from comic "fans" because the movies are not made to appeal to them, but if it turns out actually great I wonder how they'll go against it. There's always fun to have with these things.

    My opinion is I generally go see movies that look like I would enjoy them regardless of the studio making them. Every X-Men movie that has been released looked like I would enjoy it based on trailers so yes I will most likely go see the new ones regardless of continuity. I don't get why people get so bent out of shape over this. The movies aren't the comics and they don't have to follow them scene for scene to be good or at least enjoyable. They can be their own thing and have their own story. Don't think too much about continuity errors and just try to enjoy yourself.
    You brought back Wolverine

    The question still remains, will the movie be showing the essence of the Black Panther character and its mythos? Or will it be just another slick action flick?

    I will watch it regardless. But if Jean's not on it, I won't have much hype.

    I know exaggeration is a thing to paint the other side as being reactionary and less than reasonable, which contributes to unproductive discussions, and thus par for the course on this forum, so I'll just ask: Did you read their reasons for disliking them, or did you just brush them off as haters without engaging them and asking why?

    I can't claim to have read every single post on this forum, but even so, I can understand why some people are optimistic or pessimistic about future MCU and X-Men integration. I would never say, "I never understand why you people are ... ", because that usually means that I have not been listening.

    I think it will make black panther mythos and Easter eggs known to everyone. I predict marvel will be selling lots of kimoyo beads next Month. Hot ticket item I bet soon

    Huge complaints I've heard

    I loved that; it happened in the Ultimate comics and I think that I'd like to see the post-reveal dynamic onscreen. (Say what you will about MCU May Parker being too young, however I really liked how the movie capture the mother/son relationship that Ultimate put together. I find that works better than what the old '60s comics did, and even the original films to some extent.)

    I liked it, since it allowed them to incorporate Spidey's classic internal monologues into the movie in a way that made sense for the medium. While would like it if some of the more advanced tech was taken out, I want to see Karen stay in the sequels.

On the other hand, I'm willing to take Michelle as her own character and I think that we take her as that and not as the movie's adaptation of Mary Jane, she works f

    Ganke was one of the things I really liked about the Miles comics, so putting him in with the classic Spidey was a good call IMHO.

    I think that SM2 still holds it's place as one of the best in the genre of all time. On the other hand, I think that SM1 remains one of the most re-watchable superhero movies ever made, so there is that.

    As far as X2, I think it's still good, but I don't think it's quite the crown jewel that it's fans do; I find that X1 is more enjoyable to re-watch and I think that some of the later movies in that series did better. As far as will Marvel Studios do better X-Men then Fox, I think that remains to be seen. While I do think the Fox series has it's missteps, when it got things right, it really got them right. Case in point, they've defined who Professor X and Wolverine are.

    Maybe because some of us fans are fans of the current movie series and not so much else the other parts of the franchise? Case in point, the only other X-Men things I've found enjoyable are the Evolution cartoon and X-23 comics.
    Doctor Strange: "You are the right person to replace Logan."
    X-23: "I know there are people who disapprove... Guys on the Internet mainly."

    Of course I will. I love X-Men and have emotional investment in them for a big chunk of my life.

    To some extent my defense of the FOX films may be a defensive rationalization to try to make myself feel like the way the XMen are being handled is good already. Who knows. Maybe I will genuinely prefer the Disney-made movies when they come out in years. I am sure the effects will be a lot better due to the huge budgets. And it will be nice for sure not to have to get into CONSTANT negativity with people critical of the films.

    BUT! But, I say! I do have concerns the movies will Re-invent The Wheel, be super repetitive and redundant, only feature the most famous characters, and have low "stakes". And also tame down the more mature or provocative story themes. I HOPE I AM WRONG ABOUT THESE THINGS! But, I do have concerns.
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.
