    Such a huge loss. visionary - up there with Walt Disney. Fitting that on my current trip to India, I've already watched 4 Marvel movies and spent hours reading Avengers comics on my kindle. So glad I got to meet him at comic-con a few years ago .... guy genuinely loved his fans.

    That's awesome that you got the opprotunity! He was always such a likable guy. As someone who has been into Marvel for more than 30 years, I think that in a way, the greatest compliment to him is that in his final few decades of life, his work suddenly became part of the mainstream, and those who have always loved it have been able to share it with so many more.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is my favorite Stan Lee cameo.

    One of my favorites is actually the post credits scene in Big Hero 6.

    https://geektyrant.com/news/abc-renews-marvels-agents-of-shield-for-season-7

    Shockingly awesome news. Agents of Shield, who nearly everyone expected to be cancelled after Season Five, has now been renewed for Season Seven, which will air in 2020. Season Six will be a summer show, airing (and presumably taking place) after the next Avengers movie in 2019.

    Marvel has also now released an official MCU timeline, which basically matches up with what people had been speculating.

    I wonder if they are going to edit the Homecoming to fit this timeline.

    Well, they did admit that its wrong, and shouldn't have been done that way. My guess is that because its a Sony movie and not the property of Marvel, that the director got his creative choice or whatever in spite of their wishes. I mean, that could not have gotten past anyone and into the world otherwise. The first time anyone saw it, alarms should have gone off.

    I have mixed feelings about the MCU so far. Although the movies have been great, the characters that I grew up reading have been basically left out so far. I understand they lost the rights to some but I really hope now that they are buying them back they start putting in the characters I read. So far only Dr. Strange and Vision have made it into the universe and unfortunately just recently. I will say the Dr. Strange movie was awesome and true to the character.

    The characters I grew up reading and want to see

    WARLOCK - The greatest comic ever. So far a cocoon and a vague reference. Look I understand he is extremely difficult to explain to 13 year olds, the target demographic, but you have made several movies about the infinity gauntlet and he still hasnt appeared. without warlock there is no infinity gauntlet and no thanos

    SILVER SURFER - now that the battles are off earth, you have to get the rights to silver surfer and get him involved. Space is empty without the Silver Surfer involved.

    GHOST RIDER - Whoever cast Nicholas Cage as the Ghost Rider should be beheaded live on the internet for the blasphemy that was the two Ghost Rider movies. I actually liked the Ghost Rider they used on Agents of Shield. I would be cool if they used either Ghost Rider though my preference is they reboot the Johnny Blaze character

    MASTER OF KUNG FU "SHANG CHI" - OK. So some television hotshot decided the next MARVEL character that needed his own show should be a Martial Artist. How the hell do you pick Iron Fist over Shang Chi?!!!!!! Shang Chi would wipe the floor with Iron Fist and get back in time to prepare a delicious bowl of pork dumplings for his fellow super heroes. Shang Chi was involved in several storylines. Iron Fist? Well Iron Fist is cancelled so hopefully when the movie execs are looking for a Martial Art Super Hero they turn to Shang Chi and avoid the millenial snowflake Iron Fist

    MAN-THING - OK Not everybody's bag of tea and to this day I cant quite explain why I liked him. And there is virtually no difference between him and Swamp Thing the DC ripoff. But get MAN THING into the universe!!!We need a swamp movie

    SON OF SATAN - Very minor character in the universe but he and Ghost Rider were in a few storylines together and they were some of the better storylines that Marvel did

    BEAST - Since X-Men is the only successful Marvel franchise outside the main Marvel universe we will probably never see the Beast which is a shame since he was in a lot of storylines outside the X-Men

    ok so those are the ones I want to see. Also the tv series DEFENDERS was the worst version of the DEFENDERS I have ever seen. Go back to the bad *** Defenders..DR. STRANGE, SUB MARINER, HULK. Those were the DEFENDERS. Dont give me IRON FIST and Jessica Jones!!!!

    And more VISION and Dr. Strange now that they are in the universe

    Thank you my rant is over

    You'll be pleased to hear that they just started the process of making a Shang Chi movie then! No real idea on the time frame.

    Beyond that, if you haven't been following closely, Disney just bought the vast majority of the Marvel properties that they didn't already have the rights to. So in time, we're going to have a lot more movies made of a lot more characters.

    oh after my rant i do want to give props to the DAREDEVIL series. I was never really into daredevil but the TV SERIES is awesome. The acting is as good as it gets too and Vincent Donofrio is unbelievable as KINGPIN. I realize you dont get emmies for playing comic book villains but they should seriously consider giving him the award. Best villain since Heath Ledger's Joker

    https://geektyrant.com/news/rumor-h...ix-and-it-was-one-of-the-most-in-demand-shows

    I've seen this several places this week, and believe it to be true. Netflix didn't cancel Daredevil and the other shows, Marvel did. Disney wants everything under their own control with their own streaming service coming in a few years.

    For those who like the shows, I'm sorry and that stinks. My wife and I contemplated them, and decided not to watch them. Too dark and miserable, not our style.

    It makes more sense that Netflix canceled them because while they were on Netflix, they could be used as backdoor advertisement for Disney's delivery service.

    To be honest, I am not super sad to see them go. Mostly because it is more than I ever thought I would get. In my liifetime Sony did not want to spend $25 million for all of the Marvel catalogs except Spider-Man, X-Men, Hulk and the Fantastic Four because no one would want to see movies based on those characters, and now there are 19 of those movies.
