One of the things I love about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the interconnectedness of it all. While you can watch each movie on its own (except for probably Infinity War and Endgame), it’s so much richer as a story and experience if you follow them all.
I firmly believe there never comes a point when you don’t have something to learn, but I’ll take the risk of calling myself an expert in this one, narrow area. Here’s one rule I’ve come up with over time that I stand by, seeing proven time and again: when you have a story you’re adapting, and make random changes from the source material that don’t really serve any good purpose, the story suffers. That said, it’s time to talk about X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
I’ve never been a huge fan of Venom. I’m a big superhero fan, absolutely, but Venom started as a supervillain who later became, at best, an anti-hero. He/they also have a very complicated history that needs to be greatly simplified whenever it’s adapted, for cartoons or the recent movie.
Teen Titans Go! started running in 2013. Heroism was replaced by hanging around, and the general intelligence of the show and plots dropped along with the ages of the characters.
There are no spoilers in this review. I even had someone else check it over for me, just to be sure.
I’ve been reading comics much of my life, and I tend to favor the obscure and overshadowed ones for whatever reason. A long time favorite of mine is Captain Marvel, who has gone through many changes since first appearing back in 1939.
There are sort of spoilers here, but they are from Marvel Studios themselves.
