    Avengers: Endgame Spoiler Thread

    HERE BE SPOILERS! You have been warned.

    Anyhow, I'm sitting in the theatre earlier than I have ever been to any other movie. Ten years ago, if you had told me there would be five Avengers movies (Civil War is a Cap movie, but it still counts) and that they would end up being a cultural event, I would have thought you were nuts. Yet here we are. I am very much looking forward to this.

    His actions in that single storyline certainly didn't do him any favors. But I'd still place almost 60 years of Stark characterization vs. any of Marvel's piss-poor events over the last two decades.

    But hey, to each his/her own.

    I think they're pretty damn close, regardless.

    Depends on the writer, but as with everything, there are levels to it. Stark in the 616 was really never as dismissive and arrogant to the same degree he is portrayed in the MU. Busiek always wrote him as confident and sometimes even a bit cocky, but never to the 'asshole' degree he's been shown at times to be in ten years of MU films.

    While there are some differences(arrogance, Ultron's creation, etc.) they are VERY similar.

    I disagree. As I said he was note perfect.

    But I don't think anyone cares to hear how wildly different the movies became.
    Suffice it to say I don't really go for comedies all that much.

    Guardians of the Galaxy are my favorite Marvel Movies, do not care that they're different from the comics, just saying.

    I mean. Most of the superhero comic book movies were never made with the intent of being 1-to-1 adaptations of the comics to begin with. Hell, if we're going by Marvel movies, the original 2000 X-Men movie certainly wasn't.

    I'm a former comic-book aficionado, Marvel time-frame up through the 90s...(admittedly the 90s were more from habit since there was damn little well-written then)

    Thor And GoTG movies revealed that they threw out any semblance of the comics that first drew me to the movies. (Cap, and Iron Man were note perfect characterizations)

    *shrugs* I enjoyed Ant Man (and the Wasp), and Black Panther...

    Guardians was pretty great, IMO.

    Properly done, Doom can give a lot to the MCU (not to mention that "dark mirror to Iron Man" angle which sometimes pops up in the comics would do wonders here), but that would require time, patience and careful execution.

    I'm not sure they'll do that, to be honest. Not because they can't, they have all the skills, but I don't think the desire to do it is there. We'll see. Thoughts?
    I have zero faith that they'll do anything well with Doom.
    But I've lost faith in the entire franchise since Thor and GotG.

    Right, not the billions or possibly trillions he killed directly and indirectly before and after the Snap.
