Sony and Disney are two very retarded corporations and corporations in general can go fuck themselves, those money hungry pricks.

Apparently the Sony contract is leaked online. And, lo, a character that has Spider in their name but otherwise is nothing to do with Spider-man is an exception:



That's if that's the actual contract, of course.


So basically the same as the Quicksilver / Scarlet Witch thing.


I think a little different since there's restrictions on the names and iirc also versions (don't remember if that was wrt costumes, other hero names like how Carol's had Binary, Ms Marvel and so on or Alf reality versions though).

Given they had Skrulls in FFH I guess Jessica Drew was on the cards before Disney got extra greedy. Not that Sony are geniuses of course.

Don't expect a reply... I only logged on to commemorate a death of a celebrity I actually know of.

My take is that he went back in time in the original timeline and stayed out of history.

so I've seen plenty of backlash about Disney's recent leak about the X-Men in the MCU I have heard that Denzel Washington is to be cast as Magneto and Giancarlo Esposito as Professor X. And I wanted to here your thoughts on this


for me it seems weird that both would be portrayed by African American actors when the origins of the two most important X-Men are of Jewish and English origins. But if I could I would maybe cast Sean Connery or Brian Cox as Magneto and James Remar or Neal McDonough or Anthony Hopkins as Professor X

You trying to say African Americans* can’t be Jewish or English ;)

Srsly tho, I see the cinematic universes as basically one of those “what if” universes. Like those comics with Russian Superman, or that Marvel one where everyone turned into Zombies. So reimaginings of characters are a-okay in my book.

In order of Magneto to be a survivor of the holocaust in the MCU he'd have to be like 100 years old.

I mean, they're fictional characters and don't have defined characteristics, since they can be whatever we want them to be (throwback to white Nick Fury)

But at the same time, the Civil Rights Movement parallels are getting a little on the nose.

He'd need to be in his 80s at minimum.

That said, I realized a few months back there's no reason why he can't be - his powers don't require him to be physically capable, we could have both sides be led by wheelchair-bound people if we wanted.

Reasons to hate corporations (exhaustive):
