Oh god, I've just realised, that they'll probably make club penguin star wars crossover stuff because of this....

Or, Star Wars Angry Birds!?

The Marvel films have all been pretty solid - unlike the Star Wars prequels - bring 'em on I say! The best news is that Lucas himself is no longer in control of the franchise!

I REALLY don't want to get too heavily into a Marvel debate (we're probably about to :P). but, I genuinely disagree. I think the only good Marvel films are:

Ironman (1)
Blade (1)

and I'm looking forward to Ant-Man. Mainly, because Edgar Wright is directing it.

I'm not saying I'm happy with Disney taking over star wars and lucas films, but the don't ruin every franchise they acquire.

They did a job with the muppets at least.

I think they could breathe some life into star wars, it might not be something die hard star wars fans will like but I think it will bring to a new audience.

Isn't that what the prequels were for, and we know how they turned out...

There's no debate to have really as it comes down to personal taste - as much as I love Blade I actually prefer Blade 2. Iron Man is great, Iron Man 2 while not as good was still a decent Movie, The Incredible Hulk was Good fun as was Captain America and Thor, The Avengers was brilliant fun, X-Men 1 was a decent movie, First Class was excellent, X2 is one of my fave comic book movies. I'm the only person in the world who sems to, but I also liked Daredevil, Spidey 1 & 2 were both good - a majority of people seemed to like Amazing Spider-man as a pop corn munching Sunday afternoon move both the FF4 movies were watchable - not great - but watchable. The ones I have not been too keen on are Blade 3, X-Men 3, Wolverine,Ghost Rider 1 & 2 and Spdey 3 - all of which are still infinitely more watchable than The Phantom Menace and a majority of Attack of the Clones.

Considering the amount of characters, history and how convoluted a lot of Marvels comics are I think a majority of the movies have been handled pretty well - not to everyone's tastes - but what movies are. On the whole I take my kids to watch most of these movies, (obviously not Blade), and we have a good time - entertainment, that's what it's about - sadly most people seem to forget that this is the main attraction for most movies. They are Comic book movies after all - made to be fun not works of art.

**before anyone picks me up on it I am well aware that Disney and Marvel are only responsible for a handful of these movies - I just went through the catalogue of movies based on Marvel characters as Munkee mentioned Blade as a good Marvel film.

Didn't like any of the six Star Wars films, and I doubt Disney can change my opinion.
Did a good job on the Marvel films though. I've loved each one except the Spiderman trilogy & Ghost Rider.
