Are some of these villains depicted as pre-New 52? Or are the showcasing both before and after?

Don't forget, this is a summer popcorn flick. Surely many that saw the original(s) will want to check this one out just to complain afterward if nothing else. Also, most kids will want to see it regardless. It will make a helluva lot of money the first weekend. If it's a flop, it will quickly dwindle out (but really, most summer blockbusters have only one or two good to great weekends in them before they're replaced with the NEXT summer blockbuster), but Universal will have made a bucket load of money by then with both domestic box office as well as international.

I remember when the ORIGINAL Guardians (now called "Guardians 3000") would time travel and team up with the Avengers (maybe once with Spider-Man or the Thing in their team-up books). Good stories. I actually do like the current team, but they can't compete with the originals, IMO.

and while there are other characters present, they're all pretty much just there to compliment Eugene and Abraham's journey.

Sorry to be such a grammar Nazi, but I'm going to correct this error again. You're using the word "compliment" incorrectly. The word in this sentence should be "complement". This is, like, the 3rd or 4th time I've seen this error in an article on Comic Vine. To complement means something goes well with another. To compliment means to make a flattering remark to someone. Back to the regular posts that matter . . . .

I guess this is what I don't like about Axis and Marvel in general these days. I don't feel like I really KNOW the characters anymore. It's one mega story to the next, one #1 issue to the next. Even Spider-Verse is too crazy, too busy, and simply too much. I don't know . . . I could go on and on, but I won't. I'm just not enjoying too many Marvel books lately.

Yes, let's not forget that Daryl, Carol, and Beth are not even currently (or have ever been, in the case of Daryl) in the comics at all! Rick is still walking around with both arms and hands fully intact even though the governor has long come and gone. Dale died well before he did in the comics and we still have Andrea around. Even little Judith was a goner in the comics. So there is absolutely no evidence that Glenn is going to bite it this season or ever (I hope not, he's always been one of my favorites).

I've been reading comics since the 1970s. I've lived through the bad Spider-Man and Daredevil TV shows/movies. I enjoyed the now dated Superman I and II and cringed through III and IV. I am so happy that there are GREAT TV shows and movies that I can immerse myself in now.

BUT . . . not at one movie have I seen advertised a nearby comic book store or even the comic books themselves. You would think it's a no-brainer to cross market these things . . .

Isn't next year like the 40th anniversary of "What If?"? (just kidding - - I have no idea about that!)

My take is that these are going to be super-sized one-shots or maybe a short mini-series retelling these stories on alternate Earths. That has been big with Marvel lately (Avengers and Spider-Man comics being the main culprits). What it leads into or is a result of is anybody's guess at this point.

I love The Walking Dead. I love it during its slow and contemplative moments and I love it when its balls to the wall action and zombie infested. There is no character of the "heroes" that I dislike, really and I appreciate all the good acting these performers give us. The scene where Carol and Daryl reunite? Brought a tear to my eye, not gonna lie. I am truly grateful for this show and I look forward to each and every episode. It's come a long way from that group that was camping just outside of Atlanta!

Let's make a list of current or soon-to-be Marvel superheroes that exist in the cinematic universe:

Captain America

Iron Man

Thor

Hulk

Black Widow

Hawkeye

Quicksilver

Scarlet Witch

Ant Man (and with Ant Man, can Wasp be far behind?)

Vision

Falcon

Dr. Strange (?)

Guardians of the Galaxy team

Black Panther (?)

Iron Patriot/War Machine

Nick Fury/SHIELD

Anyone I'm missing? For a movie version of Civil War (which would have to be toned down), that's a pretty sizable list from which to choose. It doesn't have to be about secret identities but the 2nd Captain America movie (and the current S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series) seems to suggest that keeping a low profile might be the way to go these days.
