Hey Higgins, read about the vandalism/robbery. Super shitty. My condolences. Will your insurance cover all this bullshit? Hope this hasn't disrupted your business too much.

Thanks! The stuff covered is just about the same as our deductible, so no coverage there. It sucks, but we cleaned up fast and never lost a minute of business. Just some sleep. :lol:

Captain Marvel is the villain of Civil War II because the writing for her motivations and the logic of her actions are just awful. I absolutely don't believe she's being written as the villain, but just like Tony Stark in Civil War, it's quite obvious what perspective the authors believe in and they aren't really able to create a narrative justification for the opposing view.

Since Higgins called the SM trailer boring and literally everybody else I've seen on the Internet has loved it, I'll assume this will be another Marvel movie, like Civil War and Dr. Strange that makes tons of money and gets 90%+ RT ratings that Higgins will try to make the argument is bad or boring.

one year later, this still holds true. Whatever the sales charts say it's just bad news for Marvel. Marvel just sucks. It's terrible and does everything wrong.

I can't believe I'm agreeing (in a way) with Bryce, but Higgins and Brock are completely off-base with their view of the Marvel-Fox situation. It's not about licensing agreements or direct effect or whatever; it's all about Q rating. Marvel wants their movie rights back, plain and simple. Fox (and Sony, for that matter) retains those movie rights as long as they keep producing movies on them. If they don't have projects in active development for a period of time (10 years for some IP's), those rights automatically revert back to Marvel (that's how they got Davedevil, Elektra, etc. back). What Marvel is thinking is if no one cares about a character, they'll stop making movies about said character. And right or wrong, Marvel sees their comics as free advertising for properties whose movie rights they don't own. Why devalue mutants and force Inhumans to the foreground? Because they don't own the rights to use the word "mutant" outside of the comics. Why drop the Fantastic Four? So no one goes to see a Fantastic Four movie and it bombs (which happened, of course, but that had very little to do with Marvel's strategy and everything to do with Fox making a piece of shit movie), and then they never make another one (which, after the latest one, I really hope happens). It's completely indirect and passive aggressive, and actually kind of petty. But it's all connected in Marvel's mind- no comics leads to no public awareness leads to no movies leads to getting the movie rights back. If Marvel had a successful Fantastic Four book, you know Fox would churn out another Fantastic Four movie, and that would restart the rights-ownership clock again. Marvel doesn't want that, so they won't tempt fate by even having a Fantastic Four comic. Is it cutting off the nose to spite the face? Probably. Just don't act like rights ownership plays no part in their decision making process.

GAM,

I understand all that, but I partially disagree. A successful FF comic means NOTHING to Fox. The bomb of the recent Fox movie made waaaay more money than all FF comics over the past two decades combined. And as I stated in the episode, I agree with everything you said, I just don't care. The movies can screw themselves, I want a Fantastic Four comic.

HI, just started listening to the show and now i'm binging through the previous episodes (I'm only at 217)
I've also just started getting into comics. I'm 40 years old and everything i know is from television 1992-2006 (Batman The Animated Series, Justice League+Unlimited, and X-Men)
Never got into Superman except for in JL. And never got into anything from Marvel (still don't). But i must say I always had lots of love for Batman The Animated Series and the Justice League Shows.
I'm really pleased to see so much comic book stuff becoming more popular but television really isn't my thing (CW, Fox, etc... barf) and I'm finding the movies that have been coming out leading up to a JL thing to be disappointing.

Can you offer some words to give me some hope? thanks!!!!!

BTW I love Bryce! Don't ever change!

So, after listening to many more episodes I've learned that my question here is all too common. Allow me to rephrase it now.

Do you guys believe that DC/JL cinema will get better? Why? Why not?
