Marvel's Phase 3 Movies

Recommended Posts

If one camp is to be believed, Marvel is a faceless, overbearing and villainous studio hellbent on ruining Edgar Wright?s creative vision by passing the script on to other writers and meddling at every turn. If the other camp is to be believed, Edgar Wright is an incompetent, self-absorbed buffoon who can?t take direction and can?t adhere to any deadlines.

James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy gives his opinions on the matter.

Sometimes you have friends in a relationship. You love each of them dearly as individuals and think they're amazing people. When they talk to you about their troubles, you do everything you can to support them, to keep them together, because if you love them both so much doesn't it make sense they should love each other? But little by little you realize, at heart, they aren't meant to be together - not because there's anything wrong with either of them, but they just don't have personalities that mesh in a comfortable way. They don't make each other happy. Although it's sad to see them split, when they do, you're surprisingly relieved, and excited to see where their lives take them next.

It's easy to try to make one party "right" and another party "wrong" when a breakup happens, but it often isn't that simple. Or perhaps it's even more simple than that - not everyone belongs in a relationship together. It doesn't mean they're not wonderful people.

And that's true of both Edgar Wright and Marvel. One of them isn't a person, but I think you get what I mean.

Marvel is still looking for a new director for Ant-Man, but it seems they've already found their director for Dr. Strange: Scott Derrickson, director of Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

I am sure the director is very important but I am worried about the casting. Not thrilled with the choice for Ant-Man and the wrong guy playing Strange will kill it in the womb.

Marvel never messes up with casting. :)

Adam McKay doctoring the script, Paul Rudd in the lead, capable comedy director (I liked Yes Man and The Break Up). I feel like it'll be ok. Dance scenes can't be shot much differently than action.

San Diego Comic-Con info

Patrick Wilson, Matt Gerard and Kevin Weisman are all no longer on the Ant-Man movie. Supposedly, both Gerard and Weisman's characters didn't make the cut in the newest version(s) of the script and Wilson had to drop out because of scheduling conflicts (due to movie production being delayed).

I found the last sentence of the article rather interesting.

Feige is always good for a few surprises though it seems doubtful he’ll be able to bring in Joaquin Phoenix, who’ll star in Marvel’s Doctor Strange film.

Has he been officially cast? I don't think I've read that anywhere. I really like him as an actor, but I'm not sure I can see him as Dr. Strange.

    • I get what you mean, Chris Davis seemed to hit lots of meaningless HR with no one on late in games.  But this is simply not realistic.  You get three four at bats and you do your best with them.  Maybe pitchers simply pitch differently with say a 4 run lead and no-one on base.  In fact I am sure of it... There is often some luck involved in stats and that is precisely the reason advanced metrics were created.  They are not perfect, but they are intended to make results more meaningful. If a player had a great year and hit .300 over 600 at bats that would be 180 hits. Over the course of the season, some of those at bats clearly are more important than others.  But the player isn't punished for that week he went 4 for 4 in a series against Baltimore (for example) any more than he isn't adjusted for going 0-16 against the red sox. Over the course of 600 at bats a player who hits .300 (180 hits) could raise his average to .341 if he had the identical season but added exactly one broken bat flare for a hit over each of the 25 weeks of the season.  Again, I get your point, but even Earl Weaver said, you can't run out the clock, you have to get 27 outs.  They all count.  
    • He needs to work on his transfer/release time. He takes to long to get rid of the ball after he gloves it. It's partly the hotdogging he got away with at third with a shorter throw to first. Teams have really scouted his slow release time and everyone is running all out when they hit what should be a routine grounder to short. The other day he barely threw out a catcher (McCann I think) on a routine grounder when he held the ball for an extra step. I think most things he will clear up, and he'll learn that he will have to play some hitters more shallow dispite how good he thinks his arm is
    • Looks like Willie Snead might end up being our get. That's better than BMarsh at this stage in his career, but not as nice as Dez would have been...
    • Well it will work out great if you make him co-GM with Brady.  
    • 6) Trade all your best prospects for Manny Machado. 
    • Fine.   Manny is hitting .412/.474/.471 in high leverage situations.    He’s also hitting well in medium and low leverage situations.    I’m glad he’s hot and hope he remains so.    He’s about the only player on the team who’s doing anything offensively.
