Somebody get this man a shield!

Now to officially start playing the game of predicting which characters Marvel might have the balls to kill off this time.

Trailer looks great, be nice if they have the Netflix heroes show up.

Honestly, while that idea used to excite me, it may actually be for the best to keep The Defenders out of it. The movie is already crowded enough as it is with the Guardians involved, and the difference in tone between the movies and the Netflix shows is just too different for them to really mesh well together. I mean on the one hand seeing The Punisher and Rocket Raccoon mow down a bunch of aliens together would be all kinds of stupidly awesome. But it also would be rather odd considering that one character is meant to be a serious representation of the horrors caused to troops by PTSD from their time spent at war, while the other is supposed to be a fun cartoon character to entertain kids and make their parents chuckle with a bit of hidden adult humor every now and then. Not exactly the kinds of messages you want to be mixing up for a casual moviegoing audience.

Perhaps a brief cameo from the Netflix characters would be a neat little nod to fans, though. But, that's really about as far as it should go, IMO.

How do they forget Cameron's work on the first two Terminator movies and Aliens:whuh:

Also, the fact that he apparently wants to make a Battle Angel Alita live-action movie makes him a-ok in my book (I haven't even read much of BAA, but I do know that it is a great series).

It's time...

Teaser Trailer for the new animated Miles Morales Spider-Man movie: https://youtu.be/6yPsDcKeXQ4

It's not much to go on, but I'm really digging that animation, and this trailer has at least got me more curious about this film.

Well, this gets me nostalgic in all of its cheesy goodness, but I'm glad that this is back: https://youtu.be/y6wdHF4r8O0

So what's the current list of Marvel characters that aren't allowed to be in the MCU, now that said list has considerably shrunk in light of recent events?

Updated MCU Rankings:

1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
2. Captain America: The First Avenger
3. Guardians of the Galaxy
4. The Avengers
5. Iron Man
6. Thor: Ragnarok
7. Spider-Man: Homecoming
8. Avengers: Age of Ultron
9. Captain America: Civil War
10. Doctor Strange
11. Ant-Man
12. Thor
13. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
14. Iron Man 3
15. The Incredible Hulk
16. Thor: The Dark World
17. Iron Man 2

For Age of Ultron, I still feel that the movie gets way more flak than it actually deserves. I've re-watched it several times and it has issues but also more merit to it than most people give it credit for. Civil War dropped a bit for me. I still do really like it, but I can't help but feel that certain aspects of the film stagnate its plot and hold it back from feeling as impactful as it's meant to feel. My top three I consider to be great films not just within the comic book movies genre but in general as well (some of my personal favorite blockbusters, at that). As for 4-9, I think of them as generally great genre flicks with a lot of re-watch value, just lacking the same connection that I was able to develop with my top three picks. With 10-14 I consider them to be decent for a single viewing but which I'm not all that eager to jump back into, and the bottom three I consider to simply just be bad movies. Not nearly the worst that I've seen, but the worst that the MCU has to offer so far.
