Marvel Cinematic Universe: Should Marvel’s Characters Come Home?
Headlines
62 Comments

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, known as the MCU, has been dominating the box office and fan interest for many years now. With the major success of recent movies, with how characters and their stories are being told, it’s sometimes hard not to want the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have all their characters back under Marvel control. Dewayne Edwards will explain why it’s not the best idea to have every character under the Marvel Cinematic Universe banner.

When I am referring to the MCU, I’m talking about the Marvel characters that Disney owns for the purposes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which, as some of you may know, isn’t all of them. Fox owns the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, along with other lesser known characters. Sony has majority ownership of Spider-Man and his side characters. But with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s constant box office success, should they have all their characters back to have even a bigger cinematic universe?

This seems like a dream come true.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

Imagine their most recent movie, Captain America: Civil War, with every character that was in the actual Civil War comics arc.

Would that have worked, or a would that have been a complete mess?

We will never know and maybe that’s a good thing. For the past few years, Fox and Sony have been criticized for some of their recent films, such as Fantastic Four and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. As we know, Sony has taken advantage of the success of the MCU and allowed Spider-Man to be part of the MCU, giving them about 40% ownership, with Sony owning the majority. This was something I was nervous about until I saw Captain America: Civil War, which helped restore my faith in what the MCU is going to do with Spider-Man. Even with that success, however, I don’t think this should open the flood gates of the MCU taking all of their characters back.

With the success of Spider-Man being added to the MCU, it’s easy to see that other characters from other studios may want to start getting in line to join the MCU. When it comes to Fox and all of their Marvel characters, they have seen their good share of bad times, but also their good share of good times as well. With their latest film, X-Men: Age of Apocalypse, there were mixed reviews and again, some fans are asking for the return of the X-Men characters to the MCU, so that some damage control could be done. But I don’t think there was really any damage control necessary. As you think about it, when it comes to Fox,  we have gotten some pretty great movies, such as X2: X-Men United, X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Deadpool.

That’s not looking so bad if you ask me.

Another thing that’s great about different studios having ownership over some Marvel characters is that we are able to see different tones and styles of movies. There were things done in X-Men: Days of Future Past, that I know Disney wouldn’t  allow to happen, and that’s what’s so cool about it. Even with in the MCU, branching off on to Netflix, we are getting a different darker tone with their shows, such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage.

Story continues below

They’re working great!

If the MCU had all of their characters, we wouldn’t be getting as many comic book movies released in such a short period of time, and as a huge comic book movie fan, that would be disappointing. I know some studios have flopped on comic book movies, (Fantastic Four, *cough* *cough*), but when looking at the calendar of release dates of different comic book movies, I can’t help but be excited as a comic book movie fan.

Do you agree or do you think the MCU should have all of their characters back?

If not all of them, who specifically would you like to see make the switch over to the MCU?

    of course not, the X Men movies has been one better than the other, they have no place in the safe, generic, formulaic, family friendly, disney mcu, which is nothing more but a huge wasted chance and insult to the fans who made this succesfull in the first place

  2. The_Eternal_Dalek says:

    So X3 is better than X2? Origins Wolverine even better than that?

    Give us a break.

  3. The_Eternal_Dalek says:

    Don’t know where you got the 40℅ figure from, I’ve never seen it reported anywhere else. Is there a source for it because everyone else says it’s 100℅ Sony, Marvel just handling production.

  4. PegasusOrgans says:

    Apocalypse was the biggest insult to every comic book fan that ever tried to like Fox’s movies. They spat in our face. At least Marvel has done a decent job of translating the characters correctly (not all, like Hawkeye, but most).

  5. PegasusOrgans says:

    Do you guys think DC should lose half of their characters in that case?

  6. explanation says:

    I simply want to tell you that I am all new to blogs and seriously savored you’re web page. Likely I’m going to bookmark your website . You amazingly have remarkable posts. Many thanks for revealing your blog.

  7. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  8. This is novel. If only I possibly could examine every submit, however i will need to go back to perform now… However i’ll come back.

  32. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  33. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  34. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  36. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  37. But wanna remark that you have a very nice internet site, I love the style it really stands out.
