My God anytime I hear IF say "I am the immortal ironfist" or "kunlun" I feel like killing him (like putting him on a spit nd making him recite "I am a horrible character")
I hate the former cause I know you're the ironfist don't tell me and repeat it to everyone you meet every freaking time
And the latter I just hate how he says it ...the word isnt nice to hear to begin with but I particularly hate the way he says it

The song's not bad, but it just made Jessica Jones and Daredevil, especially Daredevil, look so out of place. We all know that fight was meant to be the climatic Defenders vs The Hand moment and not a Heroes for Hire focus.
Ok yh yh Misty was fine, but her interrogation scenes...she was just too sassy abeg, it got annoying . Lol @ Bakuto acting like an anime villain true that. Well Sowande definitely got under my skin. Alexandra's feats were just all hype and implied; she didn't actually show us one legitimate reason why she's worthy to be feared by Madame Gao of all people. Gao's portrayal as a villain in IF was even more menacing than her, so it was annoying watching someone they built up so well just suck up to Alexandra. Murakami was trash. Nobu was mopping the floor with Daredevil back in Season 1, but his own boss turned out to be nothing but a punching bag, after all the hype. Hell Daredevil even took him and Bakuto on at once
So yeah, the Hand pretty much failed the show. Looking forward to seeing different villains in the follow-up series. I can't wait for DD to introduce villains like Bullseye. I haven't really been keeping tabs on MCU series' news and rumours so I don't know when or if it's happening any time soon, but that'd be nice. In fact anything but the Hand, for now.
Regarding Danny, the actor did fine IMO. As you said, his character just needed better writing. But for me, there were other characters I had to worry about abeg.

wonder woman just surpassed CA :civil argument and iron man3 at the domestic box office, but thats not news now?
*runs out of thread*
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 12:13am On Sep 05, 2017|
Kingrapha:So, it also surpassed all the DCEU films' domestic...abi you don forget that one? Happy for it. The only thing I wish is that it would surpass the total for BvS.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 12:38am On Sep 05, 2017|
cao:it won't, yeah it's funny how this film surpassed two marvel juggernauts and no one bats an eye but when doc strange surpassed Mos internationally every one lost their sh*ts.........
balls in captain marvel's court now I'm sure she'll deliver.....although she'll be releasing the same year with ww2, cap marvel is easily my 3rd favourite marvel character after spiderman and frank Richards so I have high hopes.....
hope am not disappointed and its not formulaic...
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 12:53am On Sep 05, 2017|
Kingrapha:Duh. Superman, that's an A list character from the DC Trinity (Batman, Superman & Wonder Woman). Of course, folks will talk when a C list character surpasses him in his first outing. It's like y'all like to forget that Marvel is currently using their not so big guns. It's thanks to the MCU that C list (or in the case of GotG, Z list) characters are now getting A list status. Remember, Marvel sold the film rights of their big guns - X-Men, Spidey & F4 - during their bankruptcy, then surprised everybody with IM. By the time Avengers happened, they could practically do no wrong in the eyes of the public & critics.
As for Captain Marvel, I'm really looking forward to it. MCU messed up by not giving us the BW film, we all wanted when we wanted it. Now, I don't even want to smell a BW film, they vexed me with their sloppy handling. We could have gotten a proper spy film with it.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 1:04am On Sep 05, 2017|
cao:I see wonder woman is A list too and I guess avengers 2.5 or spiderman is c-list abi.. character popularity is not the only yardstick in box office numbers......ever heard of warcraft I practically grew with that game flopped at the b.o though....
even as a dc fan I must say am really hyped for captain marvel and black panther and sure these movies will be lit ���
MCU phase 3 was kinda meh..... to me but am not trying to start an argument, I generally enjoy both
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 1:21am On Sep 05, 2017|
Kingrapha:It's like you just want to argue for argument's sake. I already stated that Spidey and WW are in the big leagues, so you might want to quit trying to needlessly argue. Avengers, whether you like it or not, really became A list due to the MCU. Ask anybody who grew up in the 90s about Marvel brands, it's X-Men & Spidey they will remember because they had awesome cartoon shows. No one remembers the terrible IM cartoon. While, DC killed it with their DCAU.
Warcraft flopped like most video game adaptations flop. In fact the only really successful video game adaptation is Resident Evil and that doesn't even stay true to its source material. Just because it's a popular gaming franchise doesn't mean it would kill at the box office. Remember, what works in video games doesn't work in films. In fact, if they ever decide to do an Uncharted film, that might actually work since it's already story driven and already plays like a film. Seriously, imagine if they used their most famous set pieces from the franchise. Christ! Some people go just die for the cinema.
Look at Spidey sef, Homecoming simply didn't do the large numbers as expected simply because of Spidey fatigue, this is the third reboot of a franchise that is not up to 20 years, and that's Sony's fault. Which is quite the shame, because they really did get Spidey and Peter Parker in it. I guess Marvel is just happy they can now use him in the MCU.

cao:lol we are saying the same thing lady...... popularity is not equal to a High gross..... lol and the MCU didn't make avengers a list it has always been lol to comic readers though......MCU brought it to the big screen and general audience like Sam raimi and Sony did with spiderman, you wouldn't say he wasn't a list before that movie would you?
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by jonbellion(m): 1:33am On Sep 05, 2017|
But dint forget assassins creed was also thought make a decent movie franchise
I don't think Hollywood is ready for video game movies just yet. Hopefully some day we'll get a good one
Ooh yeah I never got the idea behind the marc Webb Spiderman franchise myself either
Part 2 was godawful. Made all the same mistakes in Spiderman 3
Good thing MCU came to set things straight
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 1:39am On Sep 05, 2017|
jonbellion:I actually prefer amazing spiderman 1 to homecoming, my opinion though don't crucify me lol
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by jonbellion(m): 1:41am On Sep 05, 2017|
Kingrapha:wow really ?
Well I'll say homecoming is the best portrayal of Spiderman on the big screen. Peter parker was portrayed quite accurately; the mild mannered socially awkward nerd. Tom Holland nailed it
Peter parker in amazing Spiderman was too hipster
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 1:51am On Sep 05, 2017|
jonbellion:Sam raimi spiderman > amazing spiderman >homecoming
tobey nailed Peter lol.... The best part of homecoming was Aunt may lol don't you agree
I like amazing spiderman because of its tone and some what gritty portrayal and garfield's spiderman was by far the best fighter when it comes to action scenes
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 2:00am On Sep 05, 2017|
Kingrapha:I already said Spidey was A list, when I mentioned Marvel's big guns - X-Men, Spidey and F4. Abi your definition of big guns means C list? Avengers wasn't bigger than X-Men. You can even say it was B list sef, but it wasn't their big guns.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 2:13am On Sep 05, 2017|
cao:I agree the avengers is not bigger than the xmen but I still consider it a marvel big gun because it's a cross over comic even Spidey is part of the avengers.... so I don't agree with you on the B list thingy..... just like the bat family is dc's most popular brand doesn't make justice league b-list....
The jl / avengers cross overs were the most anticipated....
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 6:59pm On Sep 05, 2017|
Kingrapha:Tobey nailed Peter, but his Spidey needed a little more work. Granted, that Tobey's performance has always been my yardstick for live action SM and I really like him as Spidey. Andrew nailed Spidey, but his Peter was too cool and a hipster. Tom nailed Peter and Spidey and really nailed the teen aspect.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by efilimu(m): 7:25pm On Sep 06, 2017|
Now that Inhuman is a certified flop, I can finally laugh at the fact that D.C is better than Marvel on t.v
if you like argue with your ancestors!
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 7:55pm On Sep 06, 2017|
efilimu:Na you sabi, it's like y'all just like to look for fight. Continue looking.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by IKON360(m): 10:09pm On Sep 07, 2017|
arguments should continue o, I came to laugh at some unfortunate ideologies
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by efilimu(m): 2:22pm On Sep 08, 2017|
Marvel (three certified tv flops combined with boring Luke Cage, The Defenders)
D.C (just one)
On television (D.C >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Marvel
If you like vex!!!
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 2:43pm On Sep 08, 2017|
efilimu:If you like continue whining.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by IKON360(m): 9:41pm On Sep 08, 2017|
In conclusion a lot of marvel series are crap, also a lot of DC series are crappy too, but movies... Leave the superiority to marvel
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 10:56pm On Sep 08, 2017|
IKON360:lol kid friendly... formulaic and cringy jokes....Marvel movies are nothing but pop corn flicks no real depth or symbolism. no real stakes just mediocre action comedies...
let's hope infinity war is serious toned with real stakes like winter soldier.
but with Kevin feige I doubt it....
I can't even remember GotG 2 again sef excessive humour spoilt that movie for me....I did like ego tho...
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by badinfluence(m): 11:44pm On Sep 08, 2017|
Kingrapha:The same old criticism.. Some of you know nothing about movie production.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 8:47am On Sep 09, 2017|
badinfluence:I'm not here to start an argument.... Marvel movies are generic thats my opinion kapish...
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 11:01am On Sep 09, 2017|
Kingrapha:You're simply here to pretend to not to start an argument . You know what you're trying, we know what you're trying to do. Move on.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 11:12am On Sep 09, 2017|
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kaycee7(m): 2:11pm On Sep 09, 2017|
Kingrapha:Will you believe it if I told you that you're the 1753rd person to recycle these exact same points?
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 2:21pm On Sep 09, 2017|
Kaycee7:if 1753 persons say one thing, then I think it holds some truth.... or not doesn't actually matter does it?
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by BraniacX(m): 2:32pm On Sep 09, 2017|
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 2:41pm On Sep 09, 2017|
BraniacX:trolling makes my day
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by IKON360(m): 7:42pm On Sep 09, 2017|
Kingrapha:Alot of Marvel movies are actually enterprises to get as much finance as possible but they are fun actually anyhow still better than some other attempts by other comic makers
