Thoughts on Spider-Man joining the MCU, Avengers: Age of Ultron poster

Hey Robert Downey Jr. – “What’s wrong with your faaaaaaaaaaaaaace?!?”  

Seriously, this poster looks terrible.  “Photoshop Fail” doesn’t even begin to cover it – it’s not only badly designed but poorly executed.  I just can’t believe Disney released this poster.  Obviously, the poster is no indication of the quality of the movie, but it does make me worry that if somebody thought this was OK… anyway, this poster makes me a tiny bit nervous.

It’s old news now, but Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  That’s awesome in the sense that I hope this means Spider-Man will be in the Avengers as that’s the exact amount of Spider-Man that I want – how awesome would Spider-Man be as comic relief in an Avengers movie?  That’s what I’m hoping for.  Along those lines, the rumor is Spider-Man’s first appearance would be be in Captain America: Civil War, which, from the little we’ve heard (the movie will feature Black Panther and Iron Man as well as The Falcon), it sounds like an ensemble movie to me, so Spider-Man could slide right in there easily cracking jokes.  Sounds like a good idea.

I also read that a non-white Spider-Man is rumored – so this means ultimate Spider-Man from the comics, right? (Not to be confused with the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.)  And if that’s the character that will appear in the MCU, maybe Sony will make non MCU Spider-Man movies starring Peter Parker with Marvel’s help?  That sounds confusing for the general audience, but who knows… anyway, I certainly feel Sony has run Peter Parker into the ground, so I wouldn’t mind the change – and not to mention the much-needed diversity in the MCU.

  1. I don’t hate the poster. In some ways, it is similar in the idea that the first movie’s poster showed – a team of heroes in the midst of tragedy. In this case, tragedy being the onslaught of Ultron clones. I won’t argue it is a bit busy, but I have a feeling the movie is going to be “busy” (read pretty action packed for better or worse). From the trailers, though, I do believe the success of the movie will be on Ultron’s shoulders. I mean James Spader is a brilliant, and often creepy, so I’m hoping he brings that to a truly terrifying character.

    Oh, I am a HUGE Vision fan. I cannot wait to see my favorite Avenger-who-doesn’t-have-his-own-regular-series take his bow. And when he joins the team, he had better cry, dangit!

    (NOTE: I don’t usually go that “fanboy” in my desires, but Visions tears of joy at being accepted is a truly classic moment in comics.)
