A place to talk about all the movies derived from Marvel comic properties. So, MCU, X-Men, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, what have you. There's a thread for the Netflix shows here. I don't think there is anywhere in particular for non-Netflix Marvel shows (e.g. SHIELD, Legion, Inhumans). We started talking about Marvel movies in the Star Wars ep 8 thread. I said,: brkl Kolzig: I really enjoyed First Class and although it obviously hits a lot of the same notes as the previous films, being about mutants, it also has a different tone - 60s spy thriller vs near-future sci-fi - it switches up character relationships and makes the whole thing feel more character-driven (DOFP takes this further by hinging the entire plot on whether a single character will make a redemptive moral choice). I agree Apocalypse was pretty bad - that was the first X-Men film that really felt like 'the same old stuff' to me, but through a horrible 90s comics cartoony filter. Logan (forum thread) has its issues but is overall really good. I just did an X-Men marathon with my partner, but we only watched X1, X2, First Class and DOFP - that selection worked so well, and we didn't have the heart to end with such a downer by watching Logan!
