Basic titles? Like Love and Thunder? Or The Multiverse of Madness? Looking at how those turned out, maybe simpler is better. ;)

Anyhow, the title fits the film, and it's just how a Marvel comic book would be titled, so it works.

Ironically I think I’d have preferred Deadpool 3! ;)

it's a nod to the comics. Deadpool and cable, cable and deadpool and deadpool and spider-man were all titles from the comics. Title is even in the comic font!

very happy to learn The Fantastic Four MCU movie has a cast .. and I'm satisfied with the choices. :)

But yikes; a release date barely 17 months away..? :shock: I hope the movie's VFX crew is already in-place, and hard at work!

And not even shooting until summer!? :shock:

Glad you’re happy about the casting, but it’s distinctly "meh" for me. Pascal is everywhere at the moment and on the cusp of being overexposed for me, and he’s okay but not great, but it all feels a little "lazy" or obvious. Definitely think the 1960s setting is a plot point, though: check out that Cinerama-inspired Marvel logo this time around…

I'm tired of seeing Pedro Pascal in everything. They should have gone with Chris Pratt.

I suppose Pedro could be okay, but it's disappointing to see them go with someone already so "in house" at Disney.

Though it's shallow, it is cool to see someone named Kirby in the cast, and she looks the part.

So, Madame Web was a horrible idea from the beginning. The story sounded awful, the casting sounded awful, and the execution - surprise! - is apparently awful. The reviews are brutal. Sony is lost at sea when it comes to expanding their Spider-Verse. I like this 2/10 review:

Haha…sounds just about as dumb as expected! :)


Of course, now that expectations are surely in check, you'll like this "for what it was" and give it a solid 6/10… ;)

Quote from one of the reviews: "I almost admire the sheer lack of effort on display in the acting, storytelling, and set pieces. To say that Johnson in particular phoned this performance in would be an insult to Alexander Graham Bell."

Sony: "You're not going to get that chance":

The only really surprising thing is that anyone is even surprised! :lol:

Such an insipid idea, right from the start. Now they're debating what it means for female-led films, which is not at all the point. A bad film with a poorly conceived idea is going to bomb, regardless of who leads it.

Having a new team of spider women actually predating Spider-Man was a dumb idea right out of the chute. They really thought they'd make a franchise out of that? And the marketing of it didn't help, either. Who was supposed to be thrilled with those trailers?

And Kraven will be the next to bomb. Sony learned nothing from Amazing Spidey 2, and learned the wrong lessons from Venom.
