Last night i went to see Antman, which by the way, was awesome (I will do a review in the near future) and I thought, since it’s the end of phase 2, I would do a post ranking phase 2.
One of my favourite aspects of AoU was that it gave more focus on Hawkeye. Why would that be one of my favourite aspects? well, I love hawkeye; As a character in the films, in the comics + I am a huge fan of Jeremy Renner.
Advanced Warning Spoilers Ahead.
As I discussed in my last marvel Monday post spiderman win be making an appearance in the MCU and Sony will be rebooting the franchise. Since on official announcement yet on who will be cast to play Peter (or miles if you believe the rumors that they are going that route) in the upcoming films u thought is make a list of my top 5 choices for both characters.
So as you all know (i’m assuming if you don’t click HERE and read first) Marvel sold the film right to various characters in order to avoid bankruptcy, one of these characters being Spider Man, which is why Peter Parker wasn’t in the Avengers (Although in the comics he sometimes is involved.)
Sony got the rights to spiderman and it’s characters while Fox got the rights to xmen and fantastic four and Sony was thriving on the Spiderman franchise… until they weren’t.
A few weeks ago I did something I’ve been meaning to do now for quite some time… I replaced by Library Card. I am so glad that I did as I have been able to read like 15-ish books/graphic novels that I otherwise probably wouldn’t have even thought about finding. One of those books was “Stan Lee: And the Rise and Fall of the American Comic Book” which was written by Jordan Raphael & Tom Spergeon.
Younger versions of these characters have been shown in other instalments of the franchise. Jean was seen as a young girl being visited by Charles & Erik in Xmen: Last Stand; Storm seen when Charles & Erik were searching for mutants in Xmen: First Class & Scott is seen in Xmen Origins: Wolverine when Sabretooth captures him from the high school, here is what those versions looked like.
