That leads me to my next example of care and respect for characters. “The Avengers” are in the house people! Well, they’re really kinda at the front door. Actually, they’re walking down the sidewalk in front of your house… probably. My point is that F@#$N trailer looks killer!!! I hope to see it played before the “John Carter” showing, so I can see the Hi Def version on a large screen. What I have seen in this trailer is something that other “comic movies” will have to measure themselves next to. I think it’s going to be a great season for Marvel, as the “Amazing Spider-Man” will also be met with high expectations.
It would appear that the house of “Mooby the Golden Calf, I mean err…eh, Mickey Mouse” has once again found itself a “Cash Cow”. Though I don’t think that Disney has acquired all rights to Spidey, and a few other Marvel titles, they definitely appear to be full speed ahead. As a comic book fan, in general, I’m really glad to see that a lot of these stories are getting fast tracked. I just hope that the integrity remains in what Marvel Studios had started pre-Mooby. Don’t get me wrong, I think that a lot of great material has come out of Disney Studios via Pixar, etc. I just don’t want to sit “false idoly” by while some of my favorite superheroes are morphed into some kind of “neo-politically correct-we now own your soul ” version of their former selves.
