I'd like to see Marvel try building a superhero franchise that starts as a movie and then becomes a comic book, instead of doing it the other way around.
Hell, I'd love to see Marvel try making a film in any other genre. Not that they've been doing a bad job with superhero films, but limiting themselves only to adaptations of Marvel comics and only to one genre of films seems like a short-sighted waste of all the money, fan goodwill, and creative talent that they're building up.
After The Avengers makes a shit-ton of money (and we all know it will), Marvel will be in a place where it can afford to take a few creative risks. Risks that could potentially pay off with new multi-media franchises if they play their cards right. I'd very much enjoy seeing what that would look like.
Marvel, as in the whole outfit, was bought by Disney. As of now, Marvel Studios is a subsidiary of Disney. The Paramount logos that we see are bought licenses.It´s Disney that+s distributing this movie.
What Disney is doing,in association with Marvel, is what WB and DC could have done decades ago.
Don´t really think that Disney is gonna use Marvel Studios for anything less the comic book movies.
That being said, I think that you are on the money when it comes to starting a new IP with a movie, and the transition to a comic book. I just don´t see them making a live action movie in that particular case.Enter Marvel/Disney animation divisions...
I do still believe that if they wanted to they could agressively seek out other properties and get them back under one roof first.
I'd pay good money to see a Blade reboot. An X-Men reboot. A Fantastic Four reboot.
They could have cross overs.
Hell, what about a Civil War?
If the new Spidey is under the Marvel movie universe, I'd pay through the fucking nose to see that.
Him and the Tony Stark bit.
I do believe Marvel needs to cover events not just specific characters.
But I would like for them to get all their properties under their own roof.
They can do it too. Shell out the money. They'll make it back. Guaranteed.
The more "hardcore" properties would probably be optioned after the studios that bought them allowed the rights to expire.
As to the X-men,Fantastic Four and Spider-Man, I think that significant investment would have to be made, one that would probably deter Disney from buying them all at once.Spidey would be the priciest, with FF probably being the best short-term option.
But the most likely suiters for new movies are Shield (Samuel "I´m King Shit of Fuck Mountain" L. Jackson+Jeremy "bank robber or bomb disposal unit, doesn´t matter I´m still fucking badass" Renner+Scarlett "Stop looking at my ass Tom and Chris" Johanson=awesome), Ant Man and Strange.
That being said, I want them to stay the fuck away from Civil War, World War Hulk, and the likes of them. That´s stuff just can´t be adapted...
