Why does my gut tell me that if Marvel & Fox ever teamed-up (or if Marvel ever got the rights back from Fox), the very first thing they'd do would be to make SECRET WARS: THE MOVIE?

That was my choice too and absolutely agree; however, the challenge with such a film - despite trying to turn a fairly humdrum mini series into a credible film - would be finding enough villains to populate it. The films from all companies, including Marvel itself, have struggled to come up with truly great villains across each films. For every, Magneto and Loki we've had (not really) the Vulture and the Mandarin.

I don't think that's even a fair comparison. The basic beats of the Vulture are there in HOMECOMING: older guy, uses technology to fly and steal stuff, fights Spider-Man...

IM3 just made a shit-show of the Mandarin. They turned a compelling villain into Ringo Starr. Strike that...the actual Ringo Starr would have been more interesting.

You're right but I wasn't comparing the film Vulture and Mandarin but rather thinking that neither are truly established as credible long-term villains. I absolutely agree that Vulture is superior to Mandarin in every way.

Seems Comcast wants to get into the mix:


Comcast wants Fox badly, but I'm doubting this will pan out well for them.

Comcast is indeed reported to be considering another bid for Fox, but that link you provided is to a news story from 2004.

Disney is reportedly seeking financing in case it has to make an all-cash bid for 21st Century Fox’s key asset to counter an offer by Comcast:


Guess we'll see how this all plays out on July 10th.

I definitely love the idea of the coming of Galactus, with the four heralds. I would freak out to see Terrax on the big screen.

Unfortunately that might draw comparisons to Apocalypse and the four Horsemen.

Screw it anyway....I want a true representation of Galactus.
