    I like TT better than RotK, mainly due to the battle was much more intense and the undead army ruined everything.

    How could you forget RotS being no doubt, the best of the Prequel trilogy?

    Well, personal opinion's great and all, but ROTK had much better universal praise than TTT, swept the Oscars, and only really got one complaint and that was the length and "multiple endings".

    I mean who knows? DOFP is shaping up to be pretty awesome, so I'm guessing it'll secure the First Class trilogy's spot among the general category of trilogies whose 2nd film is better than the third.

    I think to make a great finale of the trilogy, you can't just think "let's make a great movie" after the 2nd one because it would feel quite disconnected. You have to start to build up the story during the making of at least the 2nd movie, connect the plot from the 2nd or even the 1st movie well enough.

    I did recall Blade, but I didn't consider it as part of that chain because it's not a standard superhero film easily relatable to the marvel Universe just like Spidey, the X-Men or the Avengers are. I wager that if you told anyone just slightly knowledgeable of the character that he's part of the Marvel Universe, they'd probably look at you slackjawed and say "Really? Huh."

    But X-Men was something unique. For the first time, unless I'm seriously mistaken here, you had a movie featuring a very cool team of superheroes battling another equally impressive team of supervillains. And these guys were born with their powers and fighting to protect a world that feared and hated them. And when the dust settled and Charles left that plastic cell after checkmating Erik, we knew we wanted more. That that movie did reasonably well and launched a franchise that still thrives nearly 15 years later - despite a couple of serious hiccups - is quite an accomplishment.

    Well yeah, Blade is a Wesley Snipes vehicle first and foremost.

    It was the first time the larger world saw something like that, in live action. The "Fantastic Four" and "Justice League Of America" films were never released and only known for bootleg copies showing up at conventions and then on the internet. A lot of people don't remember "Legends Of The Superheroes" which was essentially a JLA television special, featuring the 60's Batman cast. Only in animation was there ever a team of superheroes shown together.

    Yes and no. It was in development just as Snipes was starting to become famous, back in 1993. He was in consideration for both it and a Black Panther film. He wound up committing to it, once Marvel went into bankruptcy and it was being fast tracked for a release. It was intended more as a Marvel film than a Wesley Snipes film. Had the logo been attached to the second film, more people would remember it as a Marvel film. It was added to the third film, but that film tanked.

    The other consideration on the size of the international BO is the opening up of the China market. The original Iron Man did $15M, IM3 did $121M. There's a lot of factors behind how that lucrative market opened up, but Avengers was one of the first films to really crack the market there.

    They're doing it again with Seoul, Korea this time. A "Korean scientist who is a friend to Tony Stark" (female, natch)...

    Yep, and I'll be in Seoul while they are filming. Unfortunately I won't have any time to go hunting around the city for where they are filming.

    Didn't they start attaching the Marvel logo to the movies in 2003?

    I would pay good money to see a Wolverine musical if Hugh Jackman was in it.

    Boy, the makeup on Jackman is really top-notch. I really believe that he's a young British dude and an old British dude. :p

    I note that Charles has the use of his legs in this scene. #twinbrother
