Sentry is an alien life force manifested in a serum enhanced human. Sentry & Supes are very similar down to the S on their costumes but Sentry has additional powers plus the mental instability. I don't know who is stronger though. The similarities are so much that it's almost certain he is a ripoff . Braniac & Ultron hmmm. As similar as they are i don't think they were meant as copycats. Their personalities are very different despite the fact that they're both villains.
now why will dc allow marvel let sentry have an s seeing how similar it is to supes? No copyright rules anym0re? How similar are supes and sentry apart fr0m power set? What makes ultr0n different fr0m the brainInterActiveConstruct? Ok if you d0n't see it how about calling ultr0n a transformer?

Brainiac and Ultron only have surface details as similar. Their motivations, origins and personality are completely different. Sentry is one of many marvels answer to superman back when marvel's superheroes were all about realism(funny how things change). This one being basically a superman that got addicted to his powers.
As for transformer the only thing similar about both of them is that they are robots and that is stretching it.

For similarities in comics, you can get away with a lot of things as long as you change the name and symbol.

DC lost the case. The only victory they got out of it was the acknowledgement that captain marvel ripped the storylines from superman, the rip off of the character itself was decided in fawcett comics. This was one of the precedents that laid the ground rules for comics ripping off each other.

EDIT: because I enjoy videos making fun of the trailer here is another one

Lool this is funny. Was wondering how long it'd take for the DC fanboys to attack. The reviews have generally been good. It presently has tomato score of 85, is 9.2 on IMDB & has a 7.2 score on metacritic. These are the 3 most trusted movie review outlets. It's worth noting that these are early reviews as the movie has only been released in some european countries & most critics haven't seen it yet. Therefore the movie rating will definitely fluctuate for some days.
However we can assume that AoU will not rate as high as Avengers did, It certainly doesn't mean it's not great, as i think most people had unrealistic expectations for the movie. Saying Ultron is unmemorable is incorrect as no review i read said that. What they're generally saying is he's a good villain but not on the same level as Wilson Fisk & Loki. Those are the best two villains the MCU has produced.

stop being in denial bro. Ultr0n isn't mem0rable. When they say he isn't on par with kingpin and loki it means there's n0thing special about him.

Okay saw the trailer and some things i'd like to point out.
The soldiers where wearing superman's patches so we have a new dimension of the guy's involvement in politics maybe.

The God angle they are going for is on point, very amazing and realistic.

Alfred's line to batman is also fantastic.

the way the comments from the film about superman mirror the controversy the movie itself generated is pretty cool.

I thought the do you bleed line was cheesy as hell but we'll see and hopefully the scene seemed stitched together.

on the whole marvel vs dc arguments. Marvel set out to make very entertaining popcorn movies and for the most part they succeeded, you enjoy these movies better if you view them as such and most audiences do, they are very easy to get into whereas dc is aiming at a realistic potrayal so there less surface enjoyment instead you have thought provoking instead. Dc approach is significantly harder to do as the bullshit that would fly in a marvel movie falls flat here, green lantern is a good example of such.


POINT!

DC succeeds with realism-laced heroes and Marv does with popcorn appeal. While I'm unapologetically DC, I have to agree that it works for Marvel but truthfully, it's only going to last in the short term. DC uses strong storylines and themes that resonate with even oddball viewers while if u don't dig the action, you won't dig the Marvel.

As concerns this trailer...JEEZ, its got us talking about the entire comic world and it didn't even show the Green Lantern, Wonder Woman or Aqua-Man (lets praise the Lord Vinnie Chase wasn't cast for the role). If that doesn't tell you all that its going to break some Avatar type records then y'all be tripping.

I orgasm when I remember Batfleck! Shhiiiiiitttt! I love that casting! Fecking hell I do! Also I saw Gal Gadot in the WW costume and she looks fabulous. Lets not get too hung up on acting chops, all these actors need are decent skills, not everyone can bring a character to life like Ledger did for the Joker.

I have to ask, seeing as this is the golden age of live action comic movies what has been the magnum opus of them all? What are the best 3 comic movie ever made till date IN YOUR OPINION?

My list:
3. The Dark Knight (one word; Ledger. I still have goose bumps remembering his performance).

2. X-Men, Days of Future Past (I keep crying tears of joy when I consider the muck that has been erased from that glorious timeline. The Wolverine Origin story, the Last Stand and The Wolverine 2014...all gloriously gone)

1. The Watchmen (This film...has the most powerful storyline and execution I have ever seen in a superhero movie. It is a cinematic classic and Ozymandas as a villain was near perfect. Even Dr Manhattan...was majestic. But they don't even compare to the perfection that was Rorschach. Fueking heellll! That is the best made superhero ever put on TV!

great taste. the only thing missing from your list is v for vendetta.
honestly, i feeling the watchmen is probably the most under-appreciated CBM of the decade.

My favourites are
3. X-men 2: Great story, great action, very little flaws.
2. Guardians of the Galaxy : What stands out for me here is how easily you fall in love with the characters. No other superhero movie has quite managed to do that for me

1. Batman begins : quite simply, the best origin tale for a superhero. I feel it's a criminally underrated film, and better than The Dark Knight , the Joker nothwisthanding.

You are not wrong. Many people are complaining about the movie. The constant one liners, an underutilized villain, the romance between hulk and black widow which wasn't referenced in the other films etc are some of the complaints I've seen.

From the trailers you shall know them. i've seen the movie but a cinema record version. the film could best serve as a comedy. nothing in it is taken seriously and it's as if the movie is an apology to man of steel's criticisms. but i like the quicksilver character though. now am wondering how this would lead to civil war cos i don't see how and why.

Superstory! Go and check imdb now it has reduced to 8.2 am sure in the following days it will reduce. Marvel has hypnotized people, they will see anything so far the marvel logo is on it. Am not going to contribute to marvel finances by seeing this movie in a cinema. I will download it illegally from a torrent website and watch it anytime I feel like going to sleep. Avengers: Age of Sucktron. Rubbish!

Indeed but heard anyone called jared leto? Mhen i so love dc. now my prayer is let gl be a dark, gritty film. cops aren't lighthearted in real world sense so why would green lantern be light. i need the blackest night storyline in the film where the dead come back as black lanterns. that'll be epic.

What isn't reasonable about the discussion? That we are criticizing the age of ultron for being what it is or what critics are saying? What's great about the movie if not for cap, hulk, iron man, thor, widow and so for meeting the second time? The film is good but not that good and unoriginal. if it was like the winter soldier i'll praise it but now its a mock up of the avengers, man of steel and transformers.

not that the movie isn't good but its generic and things are over done. in the movie i didn't feel any sense of danger even when ultron is supposed to be dangerous. but for instance in man of steel, you felt supes weakness, and all and you felt people dying.
