This has me...... Excited. I think this movie jumped up to number 2 on my, Ready to Watch in 2014 List. It falls right behind Captain America: Winter Solider. I think there is a chance for this movie to be awesome. It does come off as having a shallow plot, but I have high hopes for what can become of this. All the Easter eggs dropped in the trailer have me real pumped at what can become of the these movies and the Sinister Six. I'm glad that Andrew Garfield is back as Spidey. He is a great actor and suits Peter Parker near perfectly IMO. Many of the characters look like they jumped off the pages of Ultimate Spider-man. So ready to watch this. I have high hopes for this movie and for the franchise. Lets not blow it Sony.

Always like to see my boy Colossus get a little love from such great artist.
I think we should all wait and see what Whedon has up his sleeve. He is a very creative person and I think he did Marvel proud with Avengers. I'm not going to doubt him.... just yet. I'm going to give him my faith for now since the movie is still a ways off. Between now and then who knows what he might throw our way. The fact that he is a comic fan I hope he know how to get to that fine line between helping and ruining a comic movie.
But to be fair, after doing some reading this news is not completely unheard of. This would not be the first time that Tony Stark has created Ultron. I know of at least two instances where he has been credited with the creation of Ultron. So I could see the fact that to keep things within the Marvel cinematic universe he could be one of the people who create him. I think it could be a smart step if indeed the Ant-Man movie could be more about Lang. I think it would be more of an injustice to give the credit to the creation of Ultron to Pym and then turn around and not give him is time in the spot light in the Ant-Man movie. So there's a lot that can go into this decision. I would wait and see what comes to be of Avengers 2 and Phase 3. It could work out for the best.
@wolverine08: I agree, it can be dive very well using what is already in front of us. It stinks that they may not give Pym his due, but I believe Whedon has a plan and he's done good so far. I'll have faith in him until he completely screws up the MCU.
We don't know exactly what Whedon has in mind. I have faith in his creativity. Yes, I want Pym to be involved, but I think he could make it work by just mentioning it rather than him be there. Truthfully if Ultron is created by Stark it wouldn't be completely wrong. Stark did build the 5th version of Ultron, because Ultron brain washed him into doing so. Never the less he did help create a version of him. It just so happens tha Hawkeye is the one who ended up defeating this version by knocking him into a vat of adamantium. So if he were to do something along these lines it could work and not completely go away from the comics. I do however see a prime opportunity for him to introduce Vision ( maybe the character Vin Diesel could play ) at the end. This could run into the Ant-Man movie since Vision was basically created to kill Pym. I guess we shall see.
Iron Man 3 was a very good movie. Yes, it had some flaws to the plot and the character usage was questionable, but aside from that I really enjoyed this movie. It worked on a whole different level that that of how the first two did. I loved the fact that this movie was not about "Iron Man", but rather Tony Stark. The first two were basically about him playing the role of Iron Man, where as I feel that the 3rd was about him embodying the Iron Man persona. Tony Stark is Iron Man, whether he is in the suit or not and that is what they showed in this movie. Is this the greatest comic book movie out there.... no, but I don't think it gets anywhere near the bottom of the barrel. The twist was unexpected and a little disappointing, however it was not a movie killer in my book. I was actually a bit more disappointed that the Extremis story was not carried all the way out. Of course there's nothing saying it is over and done with and could be continued on in another movie (given that they can keep Robert Downey Jr on.... Please do so). I can understand everyone not being overly enthused about it and that it will be a mixed feelings movie, but to say it is a horrible movie is a little much for me. If I went full on critic mode at the lowest I would go with a 3/5, but that would mean me having to dissect the entire thing and nitpick every little detail about out. Without doing so I would give it a 4/5 or 5/5 given what perspective I look at it from. I think that the character development that we see for Tony Stark is the best selling point as well as the most intriguing. Yes, the suits are awesome and the tech is cool, but with out him they are all nothing. So seeing Tony Stark relying on himself more that solely on his suit was refreshing and a great direction for the movie. Also, kudos to Black for taking the reigns to one of the most popular franchises and running with it. I am sure it is not easy task following up pure awesomeness in The Avengers as well as two great individual movies. Great Job in my opinion.
This was an excellent movie and a great way to start off Phase 2. There are some plot fails and things that could have been done differently, but what movie doesn't. I do not think that it is enough to detract from the overall value of the movie. The twist was somewhat weird, but not enough to ruin it for me. The overall character grow was great. It was a much more in depth to the character rather just the tech. It is great that we didn't get an Iron Man 2.5 so to speak with the same armor vs armor story line. One thing that hurts the experience of the movie is that it is following such an epic movie in The Avengers. We have been kind of spoiled to expect the move awesome movies. I don't think that it is to the level with Avengers, but it is way up there close to it. I know everyone can't like everything or can't love everything, but it baffles me as to how some can seem to hate this movie so much. I guess it's just personal taste, but I think comic fans can be a little harsh when it comes to the cinematic version of our beloved comics. I myself can be sometimes as well, but I have been trying to take it with a grain of salt when it comes to comic adaptations. All in all I think this was a very good movie and a successful on at that. I would also say, Try the Movie at least, and not let the bad review deter you watching it at least once. Even if that means waiting for the DVD version, but I would recommend seeing it on the big screen.
@akindoodle: I agree with you, Hunnam does look like a better fit for Aquaman.
When his name was mentioned in an earlier article as a possible casting option for a member of the Justice League movie my first choice would have been Aquaman. I really like him as an actor and think he could pull off the role and maybe make a great cinematic adaptation of Aquaman.
I hope for almost anything but a reboot of some sort. It would seem pretty pointless and ill advised since they just started Marvel Now mainly. Hopefully it's just a first attempt and something that hasn't been done before or something that hasn't been done in a while. My wallet and time can't handle another reboot. I'm far enough behind as it is and it's only just begun. Please Marvel don't screw anything up.
