The Disney & 20th Century Fox merger.

Deathstroke 340
What are you’re thoughts on Rian Johnson creating a new Star Wars trilogy TV series?

Andrew Arvizu
1) X-MEN being part of the MCU. Should they be included in Avengers 4? Should Disney-Marvel reboot the X-MEN movies?
2) What should WB do with the DCEU moving forward?
3) Is there any movie franchise outside comics you think is truly worth investing that much emotion, time and money?

Jun Sheng Tan
Do you think the current trend of studios pumping most of their money into nostalgia franchise could hurt the creativity of film making in the long run, especially in creating/ introducing completely new content? Would so many comic/ rehash movies in such a short time being released eventually hurt this genre due to over exposure?

Super SpikeGhetti Bros.
Here’s my topic: Can a good Fantastic Four movie exist? These characters are SUPER important to Marvel Comic lore, but on screen they come off as boring, generic and derivative. Great show Rex!

Today we saw the release of the highly anticipated first trailer for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. The movie is set to release May 4, 2018 and will be the culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe the last 10 years. Almost every major character is being pitted up against the mad titan, Thanos, in his quest to find the Infinity Stones.

The new synopsis seems to truly put the fate of the universe at stake.

“An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay. “Avengers: Infinity War” releases in U.S. theaters on May 4, 2018.”
