Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

The Disney/Fox buyout is official, and I thought it might be fun to have a dedicated place to discuss speculation on how this will impact the MCU and the FoX-Men universes.

 

 

There's so many possibilities and so much to process.

 

I just hope that, regardless of what happens, they just throw Deadpool into the MCU, without even bothering to try to make any sense of it.  Just have him wink at the camera, make a funny one-liner about it, and move ahead full-steam.

I think Disney are more than likely to reset everything and go with a brand new cast and play more faithful to the comics and not do crossovers that has pretty much screwed up the X-men timeline (unless their doing a new verison of Days of Future past), but then Logan is the piece of the puzzle that just doesn't fit right in the series, well maybe all of the Wolverine films, not quite connect due to various issues. Personally, I'll be happy for them to ditch Deadpool as movies, the more I thought about the first one, the more I disliked it, the funny stuff is pretty much given away in the trailer and the film was rather overhyped, the most resent film having the name X-men attached, I had hoped the villian to be really awesome but in the end, he was pretty poor. As for Inhumans, with Disney taking back the rights to X-men I'm pretty sure Inhumans will be shoved under the carpet and forgotten. What I expect to happen is, Disney might take X-men, do a couple of films, take a look at the surporting charaters to see who has protental and do a spin off, maybe a school life one but set in a world where mutants are distrusted. Then again what could happen is a bit of a back door thing, have the X-men show up in one of the solo movies of marvel heroes and help save the day and spin off into a brand new series and explain that Inhumans are pretty much mutants under a different name only that they use the dormant X-gene to gain their powers.

Maybe they'll reshoot a few scenes in Deadpool 1 so that it's an actually one of the crashed Helicarriers.

 

Other than that, I look forward to Wolverine coming on into the Avengers-world.  The rest of the X-verse can stay separate.

I would like this. Marvel Films has enough on it's plate without having to worry about the X-Men.

I want the current shows like Legion and Gifted to continue. New Mutants and Deadpool are way different than anything being done in the MCU, so they should remain.

He was asked again this week and said no. Despite saying he would before. He hopes that someone reprises the role for that reason though.

There's no way X-men and FF and associated characters are not coming to the MCU proper. There's too much hype and expectation to imagine anything else.

The ONLY question is how fast Disney pivots and where it starts. Do Phoenix, New Mutants and Deadpool 2 go out as planed and then are quickly "forgotten" or are reshoots added to nudge things in the MCU direction? Do they wait for the "Infinity War" stuff in Avengers 4 to change reality or do they just act like Mutants have always been there?

And who gets the nod to be the first Mutant to show up? Whose the first to get a film? If Jackman were younger and still at his Prime in the roll I think he'd one hundred percent just be inserted into Avengers 4 like Spidey was in Civil War but since they have to recast Wolverine that may be a longer process.

-ZacWilliam, at least now between FF and X-men they now have a solid new direction for world building when the Thanos stuff is over at last. Also I want a KANG film now.

We live in a world where the CEO of Disney gives equal footing to Marvel's First Family, its Merry Mutants, and....Deadpool. Craziness.

 

I can see DP remaining a satellite around the MCU, maybe joining in for whatever mega-event Phase 4 culminates in. And it'll be Reynolds. As much as the Mouse values their family values, they value a commodity just as much. And Ryan Reynolds in the role he was born to play is a commodity. Even the Mouse recognizes the potential of a film that made back eleven times its budget.

 

As for the rest, it'll almost assuredly be rebooted. New actors for all. And I welcome it. Give me an actual X-Men continuity in cinematic form. Please and thank you.

I am not surprised.  Deadpool was a hit, and Iger is not going to want to kill the golden goose here.  The guy has made a lot of extremely sound financial decisions, I do not expect that to change.

 

Now as for Deadpool being integrated into the MCU, that remains to be seen.  Disney may keep him separate from the MCU.

Variety was reporting that this may take like 12-18 months to pass through regulatory bodies (It's a huge merger with both companies owning a ton of stuff, on top of it flipping potential monopoly warning signs)  There's even the possibility of it not clearing regulation, though with this administration, that feels a lot less likely.  (Apparently Trump actually called Murdoch to make sure Disney wasn't purchasing Fox News.  Good lord.)

 

So New Mutants, Deadpool 2 (They still haven't officially named this yet?) and Dark Phoenix will probably all come out, but I bet that's it.  I'm pretty sure that Gambit movie is not gonna happen now though.  Maybe.  It's like the cockroach of comic book movies; nobody seems to be able to kill it.

 

Adding the F4 to the MCU is pretty easy to have as having always been part of the universe.  Skip the origin, it's super easy to explain in 30 seconds (did a space experiment, got hit by radiation, got superpowers.  Ben is sad.) and just say they've been laying low after the accident, dealing with stuff like cosmic shenanigans, the negative zone and alternate dimensions to explain where they were during, say, the Battle of New York or Infinity War.

 

Adding the mutants is a huge can of worms without pulling a colossal universal reset.  Either guys like Magneto, Xavier and Wolverine have been sneaking around as mutants for decades and nobody noticed, or those characters will have to be radically reimagined.  It'd feel real crappy to do a housecleaning film like Days or Future Past or what DC is rumored to be doing with Flashpoint. (Basically making a film who's entire point is to explain how previous movies or events no longer count or are different.) but maybe they could do a 2015 Secret Wars inspired film where multiple universes are pitted against each other and the MCU and a mutant universe (either the existing film one or a new one made from scratch) wind up merged into one universe at the end.  That still feels weird, though.

 

Honestly, I think the biggest effect we'll see is Marvel Comics will stop treating the F4 like they don't exist, and Marvel licensing will be able to acknowledge X-Men characters again.

It mentions things like Gambit and Multiple Man movies are still likely, as there is likely contracts signed at this point.

i bet theyll tie it into whatever happens in infinity war. theres sure to be plenty of cosmic energy flying around and its easy to say they were caught in it

The way I see it, The Inhumans are an Event set of characters. They do not do well with ongoings. Limited series here and there in prestige format, yes. Think Marvel Knights Inhumans.

 

Certain characters like Crystal lend themselves well to the Avengers part of Marvel. But the rest of the Royal Family just can't carry an interesting book. Case in point, Royals has one of the best Marvel writers on it (Al Ewing) and even he can't carry them to a good book.

 

The current run of Black Bolt is probably the closest anyone can get to a full-on good Inhumans book.

 

What I'm trying to get at is, The Inhumans were never really the most interesting characters. They're COOL, but in small doses AND in the right hands.

 

Unfortunately, they were the closest thing to Mutants Marvel had the rights do, so they were forced into relevance. These things happen organically. You just can't force these things.

Black Bolt is the best ongoing at Marvel right now, though that's not saying much.

My hopes for the MCU FF is that they don't try to do Doom straight away. Ideally, something like:
  • Have a 2-minute origin montage before cutting to the present day; don't spend the whole film on it. The Incredible Hulk model, I guess.
  • Use a less major villain as the antagonist. (Example: Mole Man, as played by Danny Devito!)
  • Give the movie a feel of scientific exploration and discovery. (Another reason that Mole Man would work; you can build the movie around exploring Subterranea.)
  • Tease Doom for a sequel, but don't use him in a major role. Example: a post-credits scene of a news report on how revolutionaries have taken over Sokovia and returned it to its former name, Latveria... and end on a shot of a hooded man turning to the camera and revealing his metal mask.
I dunno. I just think it'd be a mistake to blow their load on Doom straight away.

I was thinking, to help them pretty much skip over the whole origins story for the F4  they could simply play this at the start of the film thou with the actors taking the place of the animation:

 

Origins story of the heroes, done and dusted in a single min and they can move onto the actual story and develop the charaters themselves.
