I just made myself take a step back from my movies this morning to truly appreciate what we have as fans. Been watching the extras on 'Civil War' and 'X-men Apocalypse', and all I could suddenly do was sit and be stunned by what we have.
We have 3 great movies for Captain America & Iron Man (the seasoning is to your pleasure on how much you enjoy them all), and 2 Avengers movies also starring them. Hell, Civil War is damn near Avengers 2.5/Iron Man 3.25, if you want to call it such.
We have 4 Chris Reeve Superman movies-and 2 are absolute garbage, 1 is kitschy love for the fans, and the first is utterly iconic. But think how often we've seen RDJ and Chris Evans in their roles! While ScarJo has not mainlined a film, she's been an integral character in 5 Marvel movies. Michael Keaton, my fave Batman, was only in the role in 2 movies!
Even if you look at the story narrative of these movies, the X-men movies have gone through 6 films, linking the 2 generations of films into a sequence that is still at a fresh new place to go forward!
All these movies are done in a manner by people who truly care what they do, in a story form, to progress events and people to new places to be proud.
What great times. Sure, once upon a time there was Adam West, George Reeves, Lou Ferrigno, Nicholas Hammond,...but man, these days? What a comic film nirvana!!
And...we have hope for an amazing Wonder Woman movie next year! The very first female heroine, and now the very first to headline a movie! OH PLEASE BE GOOD!!!
