It has been announced that ABC has decided to pick-up the series (was there ever any doubt that they would?). With this announcement also came the official logo and the first promotional still.

More info is coming next week at the upfronts, but the first promo is going to air during the Season Finale of 'Once Upon A Time' this Sunday.

    Props to Marvel for oversaturating the market with half-assed superhero movies and now turning to television to display their mediocrity. I'm all for it if it means less superhero films per year, but sadly it looks like they're still rolling out 2 or 3 per year, which, added in to the Spider-Man and Superman films bound to come every few years now, will make for an incredibly overstuffed and tiresome market. Not to mention Marvel is insanely cheap.

    They just need to take it slow. I've never seen a more annoyingly ambitious and aggressive marketing for such a bland palette of films.

    I could not agree more but comic book fans will eat it up. here,s hoping the next few marvel movies are really really bad so maybe they simply stop making them all together or be forced to start over.

    Couldn't agree more. Almost every movie they have released so far was mediocre. Marvel only wants to have "the biggest" franchise box office wise, they don't care if their movies are bad, they will keep releasing them until they have reached their goal. Even if they make 20 movies, they just don't care.

    These are definitely my thoughts.

    Sure the films can make lot's of money, but why should ever be an important issue? Sure it runs a box office but in the grand scheme of things it is a mad made symbol and stature of importance. It is ruled in an industry that revolves around the dollar signs and how much they can make on anything they put out into the public's eye. Thus why most people in the industry on the media side and corporate side put such emphasis on a film that makes a lot of money. Does it make it any good? Ha!

    So many helpless fanboys spending money to see a mediocre film about a superhero that has no substance or depth. Sure movies can be fun, don't get me wrong. However when something is weak and lacks any depth to a main character, to the surrounding characters or when there is no threat to anyone in the film how is it successful as a piece of entertainment? What is the thrill anymore? Are people just going to see something based on a preconceived notion of what will be, or even to see something from the flashing headline and title of a work? (Iron Man 3 is the perfect example of this.)

    Oh and this is not me being a DC fanboy by any means. I'll be the first one to bash Green Lantern, Batman & Robin, Superman 3 & 4...but when it comes to how the Marvel films will age I feel that time will not be too kind. I'm probably more excited about Amazing Spiderman 2 than most people around as well.

    Wtf. Why now everybody hates Marvel's films?
  • chesterchester Posts: 4,331 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Because Marvel started to feel like a real factory. Not a studio. It's quantity over quality.

  • Lord StaffordLord Stafford Posts: 27,352 ✭✭✭✭✭
    That's what a studio does. The people working on the films are the ones responsible for its quality, while the studio provide them with the tools for the job.

    Besides Disney and WB, what studio other than Marvel is able to plough out film after film, still maintaining its quality? The Avengers was a hit, with the fans and the critics, and it made a ton. Iron Man 3 is much the same, and we still have Thor and Captain America to look forward to. Both of which are promising, and because of how well their films do, Marvel are able to add a film or two each year, without dropping in quality.

    Yes they do, but releasing 2/3 movies of the same franchise in the same year is a little bit too much. And if i remember correctly, the reception of Phase 1, besides the Avengers, was very lukewarm.

    Well, take a look at Phase 2. Quite the opposite.

    It's a little too soon to say this, they've only released 1 movie yet.

    Wtf. Why now everybody hates Marvel's films?

    I don't hate them. I've enjoyed a few of them (namely The Avengers), as overrated as they are. But I dislike Marvel for two reasons:

    1) They oversaturate the market. I wouldn't have as much of a problem with their films if they didn't release 2, 3 or 4 every year. It crowds the market for superhero films, especially when there are other fantastic films like Batman, Superman or Spider-man coming out that year (which usually end up being miles better.) They could easily take their time with each individual film to build up to an even better Avengers. But, greedy for money, they release a couple a year and make billions. They're rushing things.

    2) The films that they do produce are usually mediocre. With the exception of The Avengers, which had some style, their films are bland. They take advantage of the fanboys by throwing in useless scenes to sloppily tie together the characters and storylines. What's believable in one film simply doesn't work in another. Taking the world of Thor and inserting it into the world of Iron Man logistically doesn't fit. The solo films have had some great opportunities to become good character studies like in Batman Begins or Spider-man 2. However, they tend to focus on other things. The films aren't even stylish, sans The Avengers and Iron Man 3, which at least makes them entertaining and enjoyable.

    That's not to mention the fact that they don't nearly compensate their cast enough and they're going to lose actors; they're quickly introducing more and more new superheroes. By the time Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy are introduced for The Avengers 2, there will be far too many characters to keep track of in a single film. It just won't work, and it will drastically fall apart. Now that they're spilling over into tv, they're going to be adding even more pseudo-hero personalities to their line-up as the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be discovering them.

    Marvel had a fantastic idea but executed it terribly. Yes, they have billions in the bank right now, but the karma of underpaying their actors and releasing films for monetary purposes is already coming back to bite them in the ass. The actors are getting angry. It won't be long before the films logistically fall apart from too many characters and plots. And finally--the audience. If they keep releasing films at the rate they do, Marvel will have completely alienated their audience in five or ten years. People get tired of certain trends.

    Marvel is cheap and far too greedy, especially for a company that can already make billions in comic book/action figure/video game/toy sales without even releasing films. They're impatient, and their gaudy attempt to aggrandize themselves dominate the superhero and blockbuster market is simply annoying.

    Agent Phil Coulson is the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, the “everyman” in a universe full of superheroes. Every day he’s somewhere doing something for S.H.I.E.L.D. He knows how to stand his ground but doesn’t take life too seriously.
    image
    Melinda May is a pilot, weapons expert and soldier who is “Soulful and slightly damaged by her combat experiences.” and is known for going beyond the call of duty. Also known as “The Calvary,” this hard-core soldier, she has crazy skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot but her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged. (Character previously known as Althea Rice)
    image
    Agent Jemma Simmons deals with biology and chemistry, she’s a bit of a nerd and spends most of her time with Leo Fitz who she trained with.
    image
    Agent Grant Ward is a highly skilled “rising star” known for being deadly, precise and cool under fire but apparently not so good when it comes to dealing with people with a tendency to botch interpersonal relations. He’s a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he’s the kind of guy that grows on you.
    image
    Agent Leo Fitz is skilled in the technical side of weaponry. He’s a nerd and has a sibling like relationship with Jemma [sic] Simmons.

    Skye is fun, smart, caring and confident with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm. She is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exists within it. She’s edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature.

    How the fuck do they explain how Coulson lives? Such bullshit, it completely takes away from the only catharsis and gravitas that The Avengers managed to evoke.
