    @dernman: Actually, I don't see the Human Torch issue and this as different things, and the people complaining about Michael B Jordan were, generally, racists. If a character's race is a fundamental ...

    @abdullahzubair: F***ing what? Not only are comic fanboys enraged by, for example, the black Human Torch, they have problems with black characters being too black? Not racist? Definitely racist.

    @lilben42: True, but 'one chooses the peaceful path, the other chooses the violent' is an ancient story trope. Just because Caesar and Koba do that does not mean that they're ripping off Professor X ...

    @vandinejd_1991: And the Professor X/Magneto story is a rip off of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X from real life. Almost every story it's possible to tell has been told already, so to berate a film...

    If we're including all movie output from this year, then the best films were Boyhood and Birdman, but in terms of the big blockbusters, Guardians was my favourite. Dawn, Lego, and Cap were all fantas...

    @spideysense44: Because they're comic fans. They're always angry about something. And they assume that their personal opinions somehow hold some sway over a multi-billion dollar film franchise.

    Also, and I've posted this in another thread, the least important aspect of an adapted film, especially when the source material is so loose and with so many stories as a long running comic, is its f...

    @hexthis: I do get that somewhat. However, the MCU is still an entirely separate universe to the 616 in the same way that the Ultimate universe (for example) is, so the changing up/elimination/introd...

    I've been less excited for this movie since the Edgar Wright departure, and this hasn't really changed that, but I'm still very ready to give it a shot. One thing I absolutely hate on these boards is...

    Aw yiss, Legendary's panel was awesome. Not only this, but they own King Kong and the new King Kong is coming out 2016. Shared universe?

  • marvel_dc_heroes_villains posted a message in the forum topic Narrative vs. Gameplay, Video Games. on the Off-Topic board

    Most video game narratives are pretty naff, with a few notable exceptions, so I'd say gameplay is more important. If I'm not having fun, then what's the point? My favourite games (Fallout, Deus Ex et...

    I'mma be honest and say very few of them. All these internet tough guys are forgetting that a lot of celebrities, if not strong or trained fighters, are likely to be in incredible shape (especially at...

  • marvel_dc_heroes_villains posted a message in the forum topic How long have you been reading comics?. on the Off-Topic board

    Since 2003 with Spiderman and X-Men Comics. I was pretty much exclusively a Marvel guy until 2010 though, and I wouldn't say my true comic nerdiness flourished until 2011.

    Also, tech is not nearly advanced enough at this point to have all your gameplay actions affect your story outcome, so, yes, the idea of interactive storytelling is, at the moment, fundamentally flaw...

    So, Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty much genius. Cannot wait for the next slate of Marvel films if they manage to be as fresh.
