    I read the feature today. I know it will be good, but i feel some type of way about yet again, iron man is the focus. Too me this just devalues ant man even more with stark bogarting a critical makeup of this character. I get it, they need to make it simple for those who have never heard of ultron and giant/ant man. They could have let hank made an appearance as a stark employee who created this in like iron man 3 if they just wanted to change things up for future storylines. I really dont think im going to care for antman. Yet marvel rarely let me down so who knows… im about to do a 360 on GOTG and probably will see it. The summer is getting thin and I didnt care to see killer apes, and im waiting on Get on on up.(i think most of america is lol)

    You should see ‘Dawn’ man, it’s much more than killer apes bro, it’s an amazing film. I understand your liberties with not having ‘Ant-man’ in the film, but IMO it’s not going to be a big deal and interfere one bit with the ebon flow of the film. You just have to understand my friend that everything is not going to be picture by picture and frame by frame of what it was in the comics. And some charcaters and storylines from the comics simply don’t translate well to the big screen.

    yeah I can see it that way as I know the giant aspect of hank would be hard to do constantly. And far as flow it does make sense that stark is just as smart and fits the bill as a egomanic to pull something like an ultron off. It does keep it nice and tight. But I dont know. I dont quite have iron man fatigue, but I wasnt a big fan of part 3. Not quite ready for a 4 lol. But they give me more hulk im cool. Hulk just want to smash, just let him smash.

    my wife and her sister loved dawn. I still havent seen the first one. I think it will give a home try for me. im just going to say my cash for the james brown biopic. Strangely that and xmen are the only two series thats remotely sci fi ish that they like…

  • Yeah, it doesn’t seem like we have a lot of great sci-fi franchises these days, which will change with “Star Wars Episode VII” and “Star Trek 3” on the horizon in 2015 and 2016.

  • Fred

    I would definitely suggest you see ‘Rise’ before you see ‘Dawn’, it will make your viewing experience that much more rewarding. I know a lot of people we’re turned off by the previous ‘Apes’ film back in 2001 and that kept some from checking ‘Rise’ out which is a mistake, because like ‘Dawn’ it’s a terrific film. The modern ‘Apes’ series is off to a fantastic start and I’m really looking forward to seeing what the third film has to offer.

  • Fred

    While I thought ‘Iron Man 3’ was a pretty good film it wasn’t a great one and it was nowhere near as good as the original. I certainly don’t think AOU will be IM4 by any stretch of the imagination, far from it. Yes Stark will have top billing and have an essential role in the film obviously, but he clearly won’t be the only one, the other characters will shine just fine and Whedon has a great track record with balancing big casts. Plus you have 3 new superheroes introduced and rumor is Hulk and Hawkeye will have even more substantial roles in this film, that combination just won’t allow too much focus to be just on Stark and the Iron Man show believe me.

  • keith

    but I see I actually like the 2001 version. For some reason, this just creeps me out.

  • Fred

    I didn’t hate the 2001 version myself but a lot of people did, I thought it was pretty good just not great like these modern day versions are. It can be creepy because the elements of these films are much more real, tense and emotional.
