Everything we want to see in Deadpool 3

We all knew a third installment was coming after “Deadpool 2” who earned more than $786 million, where it currently ranks as the second highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time. However, the Walt Disney Company’s ground-breaking acquisition of 20th Century Fox put a wrench in the plans. While the idea of Marvel Studios reviving the “X-Men” property in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was incredibly exciting to fans, what did this mean for the clearly adult-skewing “Deadpool” series? Would Disney want the family-friendly MCU characters like Hulk, Thor, and Captain Marvel to coexist with Deadpool’s coarse language?

To the surprise of the fans, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige eventually confirmed that “Deadpool 3” was still a go and would stay R-rated. Hugh Jackman’s announcement that he would join Ryan Reynolds in 2022, returning to the character of Wolverine after adamantly declaring his retirement from the series with the 2017 picture “Logan,” was the truly astounding news, though.

But what else do we want to see from Jackman’s comeback as Wolverine in “Deadpool 3” now that he’s back in the claws fighting alongside Reynolds as Deadpool? Continue reading to see our list.

A True Team Up

Deadpool and Wolverine

Hugh Jackman returning to the role of Wolverine may have generated the same amount of excitement as Josh Brolin’s casting as Cable in “Deadpool 2” when it was initially announced. Although he earned positive reviews for his portrayal of the future cyborg warrior, some viewers might have been upset that Cable spent a large portion of the movie playing the antagonist. We’re hoping that the makers of “Deadpool 3” won’t be tempted to set the Merc with a Mouth against the veteran Canuckle-head, as they did with Wolverine, and will instead make the movie with a true team-up.

We don’t believe Wolverine will be Deadpool’s opponent because of the friendship between Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, but we do anticipate at least one battle scene between the two at some point in the movie. It will be entertaining to watch the two mutants with the fastest healing abilities slash and dice at one another, but if the movie is smart, it will quickly put an end to the rivalry and turn Wolverine and Deadpool into fast friends, reluctant allies, and a formidable duo deserving of Jackman’s return.

A proper team-up that allows us to witness the actors’ flawless on-screen chemistry might be what we want to see most from “Deadpool 3,” regardless of whether they adapt a well-liked storyline from the comics that saw the pair of X-Men join forces or create something brand-new for fans to get excited about.

An Avengers reunion

Avengers

It’s now conceivable to see the participation of characters from the MCU because the third “Deadpool” movie is now produced by Walt Disney, which still feels strange to say. We are unsure if this means the story will take place in the “Avengers” universe or feature Deadpool traveling through several dimensions, but we are certain that there will be at least a few MCU cameos. But the “Avengers” band from the past, including Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow, should come together once more.

Despite the fact that all three of these characters have died in the MCU, we’re talking about “Deadpool,” a series where anything may happen and nothing needs to make sense. For “Deadpool 3,” the movie that persuaded Hugh Jackman to come out of retirement, we could see Chris Evans or Robert Downey Jr. donning a suit once more.

A reunion of “Avengers” stars feels like the perfect decision, whether it’s for a major action sequence or a blink-and-miss-it cameo like James McAvoy’s “X-Men” in “Deadpool 2,” and the opportunity for Wolverine to interact with them is the icing on the cake.

A comic-accurate costume for Wolverine

Wolverine costume

If there’s one trivial aspect, one gimmicky feature that we selfishly want to see for no other reason than its sheer coolness, it’s probably a comic-accurate suit for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, and we probably speak for all fans when we say that. It’s amazing to imagine that despite playing the role for close to 20 years, Jackman never sported the iconic winged face mask or any attire that even somewhat matched his comic book persona.

Fans were teased with a potential yellow and black costume in a deleted clip from the 2013 sequel “The Wolverine” that was available on the home disc, which is the most inexplicably disregarded part of the maverick multi-clawed mutant. But since “Days of Future Past” and “Logan” both took place at distinct periods along the chronology, viewers were unable to see it in action because we never continued his story from that point.

Ryan Reynolds would undoubtedly play this as a joke and repeatedly tease a costume that never materializes, knowing full well that this is exactly what people want to see. But in the end, Reynolds, who is well known for his love of fans, finds it too tempting to include Wolvie in costume and knows it will be a popular moment. Although we can’t say for sure, we believe the filmmakers will likely succeed.

Wolverine vs. The Hulk

Wolverine and Hulk

Few characters have faced off in battles as epic as Wolverine and the Incredible Hulk, whose animosity dates back to Wolverine’s debut in “The Incredible Hulk” #181. Both characters had been on the big screen by the late 2000s, with Hugh Jackman making Wolverine famous and Mark Ruffalo took a part of Hulk role starting with the superhero team-up in “The Avengers” movie. Fans continue to fantasize about a confrontation between these two heroes, despite the fact that rights issues have prevented the figures from coming together.

But once Disney bought Fox, fans started to wonder if their fantasies may come true, with Jackman’s mutant finally clashing with Ruffalo’s monster. When Jackman reiterated his decision to leave the part in 2017 following the premiere of “Logan,” hopes looked shattered. We want to see the match-up take place, though, as it might be our last opportunity to watch the Hulk and Wolverine interact while these two actors are still playing the roles. Fortunately, the Australian actor changed his mind and is returning for “Deadpool 3.”

According to Mark Ruffalo’s statements on the Marvelist Podcast in 2018, if you inquire, it might be possible. “If Hugh is game, I’d love to work on something with him because I adore him, Ruffalo remarked. He has frequently made mockery of the Hulk and Wolverine.”

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Wolverine and Deadpool

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is without a doubt the right choice if Ryan Reynolds and writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Rheese are looking to adapt a comic book plot in which Deadpool and Wolverine collaborate. The 2013 storyline, which bore the same name as the classic Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, appeared in “Deadpool” issues #15 through #19. It featured much of Deadpool’s trademark humor, and Wade Wilson asked Wolverine and Captain America for help in learning more about the Weapon X program.

Despite the fact that a film version would probably include Captain America (or perhaps not, given that Deadpool is part of the MCU), it would be simple to replace the Sentinel of Liberty with a figure like Colossus or even Cable. But given that it has been in numerous “X-Men” movies, the investigation into Weapon X may be a little stale even though it may be interesting. Instead, the spark that starts this story—a unknown villain being exposed for continually stealing Deadpool’s organs—is what we enjoy most about it.

The Weapon X plan may be a good way to bring the two characters together, but Reynolds might prefer a sickeningly twisted organ-theft plot in which Deadpool enlists the assistance of Wolverine.

Hints to the next X-Men

The X-Men

Fans went into a frenzy after the Walt Disney Company acquired 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios) in 2019, as they anticipated a revival of the “X-Men” movies and their universe within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, besides a few brief appearances in places like Madripoor in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” we haven’t heard a peep from the realm of mutants in the MCU in years. In fact, given Marvel’s intentions for Phase 5 of the MCU and the fact that there are no “X-Men” movies scheduled until at least 2025, we might have to wait a while. But since we already know they’re on the way, why not tease a brand-new group of MCU mutants in “Deadpool 3” to whet our collective appetites?

Although it’s unlikely that Marvel Studios would cast their future new team for a one-off joke in the movie, we want to see a hint of what’s to come, whether it be a mention of Magneto being Wanda Maximoff’s father or a news report about the former Avengers headquarters becoming a school for talented children.

She-Hulk

She-Hulk

We will agree that this is a bit more of a long shot, but there has been chatter that She-Hulk may ultimately make her way to the big screen (per The Direct), so there is no reason why she couldn’t get a head start with an appearance in “Deadpool 3.” Jennifer Walters has a history of breaking the fourth wall; in her own series, she frequently turns to the camera and addresses the audience, a practice that precedes “Deadpool” in the comics. to witness them squabbling on the same screen about who will draw in the audience? That sounds like a formula for comic gold.

Her tongue-in-cheek humor would fit in perfectly with “Deadpool,” where a twerk or a “bruh” wouldn’t be out of place, even though some of the absurdity in her own series might not have been a success with viewers who wanted a more serious take on the character. Whatever your opinion of “She-Hulkjokes “‘s and digs, there’s no reason her kind of comedy couldn’t succeed in even a brief collaboration with the Merc with a Mouth. Additionally, Bruce’s cousin would be the ideal person to break up the Hulk/Wolverine battle because he can make fun of the overly macho lads for constantly seeking an excuse to fight.

No jokes about Logan

Logan

Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are real-life friends, and because they previously appeared together in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” as their respective roles, there will be plenty of temptation to use “Deadpool 3” as an opportunity to make fun of one another. Wade Wilson will undoubtedly break the fourth wall to comment on Jackman breaking his pledge to also withdraw from the character of the brawny bub. But if it were up to us, we’d ask them to omit the jokes about the 2017 movie “Logan.”

However, “Logan” was such an elevation of the comic book film genre, with a serious and solemn tone, that it should be left aside and not utilized as the basis for ridicule. Don’t get us wrong; we’d love to see Jackman’s character as Wolverine — and the star himself — lampooned often. Furthermore, making their much-maligned flop “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” the brunt of jokes is a lot more amusing than doing the opposite. Reynolds has plenty of material to work with, including Wolverine’s shoddy CGI claws and the odd decision to sew Deadpool’s mouth shut.

A multiverse adventure

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Many fans had high hopes for a procession of prior movie guest stars before the release of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” with hopes of seeing non-MCU heroes like Nicolas Cage’s Ghost Rider or Wesley Snipes’ Blade back in action throughout the multiverse. There was even a brief discussion of updated Avengers, with speculations of Tom Cruise donning the Iron Man outfit (gossip that turned out to be entirely made up).

In the end, however, the movie only featured the Illuminati in one crucial scene, which disappointed many. However, cameos from characters from previous film universes would be the ideal trump card to play if “Deadpool” wants to properly embrace the oddity of falling under the Disney and MCU umbrellas. It’s true that we don’t want “Deadpool 3” to be overrun with cameos, but that doesn’t mean they can’t offer us a ton of them while still keeping the film’s main focus on a tight plot.

Since it can be played for laughs before moving on, this franchise is the best one to use one-off visits by a group of multiverse heroes.

Deadpool’s own supporting cast

X-Men and Deadpool

In addition to realizing the dreams of every fan, a cavalcade of cameos would also provide Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine the chance to appear alongside actors like Ioan Gruffudd’s Mr. Fantastic or even Ben Affleck’s Daredevil in one-scene jokes.

Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine for “Deadpool 3” has caused an explosion on the internet and in social media. Just as we are doing here, throngs of fans have been compiling wishlists of cameos and pairings in the hopes of seeing the X-Man return to the big screen with MCU mainstays like the Hulk, Iron Man, or Thor. However, we want to make sure that fans don’t forget that Deadpool already has a fantastic supporting cast in all the zeal over the extraordinary access the filmmakers have to any number of Marvel characters, from “The Avengers” to “The Fantastic Four” and “The Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Yes, with all the focus on Wolverine, let’s not forget the amazing characters from the first two movies who we would love to see return. That group consists of the cynical roommate Blind Al, the displeased cab driver Dopinder, the fortunate Domino, the steel-skinned Colossus, and the jaded Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Heck, we might even get to meet mutant Cable who travels across time and fire starter Rusty Collins.

A tease for Deadpool 4

Deadpool

Let’s face it: we want cameos, but only as long as the movie doesn’t veer off course and ignore audience favorites. Some fans might be concerned that having so many characters will hinder the movie, but Marvel has previously succeeded with big ensemble casts and even one or two standalone movies with a lot of guest stars. If they want to see how to do it properly, they may watch “Captain America: Civil War” or “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

Why are we discussing a different sequel before “Deadpool 3” even comes out? Marvel Studios is known for planning their slates years, if not decades, in advance, so there is no reason why we can’t make similar assumptions. In this situation, we want to see a tease for a fourth installment in “Deadpool 3,” not just because it would be entertaining, but also because we want Marvel to immediately dispel the popular belief that the third installment will be the final one, the capstone on a fantastic trilogy.

In the end, “Deadpool” doesn’t really need to end after three movies, not while Reynolds still adores the character and has a passion for taking out bad guys and making jokes. We don’t think Marvel Studios would declare “three is enough,” especially not when they’re raking in billions at the box office, given that they’ve already made it obvious they’re happy to let “Deadpool” films continue alongside the MCU, even in an R-rated form.

Kevin Feige

Kevin Feige

If anything, Jackman’s involvement in the series may have given Reynolds and Marvel new life, preparing them for even more spin-offs or sequels starring Domino, Cable, and X-Force. We want to hear them say “Deadpool will return” in a post-credits statement if any of it is in the works.

No, we’re not joking, and sure, we’re referring to Kevin Feige, the head of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and president of Marvel Studios, who also serves as an executive producer. He needs to appear in “Deadpool 3.” You wonder, “How and why?” First of all, it’s about time the fans got an opportunity to show their support for the king of all things Marvel flicks. The ideal setting for that to occur is “Deadpool 3,” the first movie to solidly cross over the “X-Men” and MCU universes with a sense of fun.

Remember that Stan Lee, the creator of Marvel Comics, appeared in practically every major Marvel film. With Lee’s passing in 2018, perhaps Marvel can hand the reins over to Feige, the man who created the MCU. Without being aware of Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century, a movie that doesn’t simply break the fourth wall but bursts through it might have its star smashing down Feige’s door and demanding answers when he finds himself in the MCU. In fact, it may mix our desire for a hint at a “X-Men” revival with the studio head’s position during franchise preparation.

A future for Jackman’s Wolverine

Logan a.k.a. Wolverine

If Hugh Jackman has broken his promise to never portray Wolverine again, you must be thinking, “Surely, he’s only doing it for this one special film,” And you might be correct. Additionally, it is true that Jackman most likely won’t reprise his role as the MCU’s Wolverine and won’t continue to portray the character after Logan passed away in the 2017 swan song “Logan” (spoilers for a movie from a few years ago). However, we still believe that Jackman as Wolverine can be entertaining beyond “Deadpool 3,” and if he was persuaded to return once, he can be persuaded to return again — it just needs to be something exceptional.

How possibly is that? The response from fans to Wolverine’s comeback appears to indicate that viewers want to see him return for the monumental crossover movie “Secret Wars” from Marvel in 2025. The MCU adaptation seems to be setting up a multi-verse version of the plot, with the malevolent Kang assembling heroes and villains from several universes. The event in the comics involved almost every important Marvel character. However, it would be negligent for the movie to omit any significant mutations.

Jackman playing Wolverine again in that movie would help reflect the mutant side of Marvel and serve as the ideal cap for his final depiction of the character, especially because we might not have seen a “X-Men” movie by 2025. This one, is it likely? Most likely not. That won’t stop us from dreaming, though.

You are kindly invited to a funeral by Marvel Studios

You should be aware that this is the tale of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

The narrative honors the late Chadwick Boseman in every way, even as Marvel moves the plot along and establishes a replacement as the leader of Wakanda

The Black Panther sequel ends up being unusually depressing for this reason. Some of my audience members did cry, sometimes at the most unexpected times

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

In terms of the movie, I’m still undecided. I kind of loved it. It broke my heart in other ways

In this ambivalent review of the Black Panther film without the real Black Panther, I’ll go over both the good and the bad

A Loss Story, Either Way

After Boseman’s tragic passing, a discussion erupted online. Fans pondered the Black Panther’s replacement after Boseman

When he revealed that he finished the script the week before Boseman passed away, director Ryan Coogler recently tore people’s hearts out

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Obviously, the project had to start over after this significant loss. Boseman would have made Wakanda Forever significantly different from what we’re currently seeing

King T’Challa returned five years after The Blip, so Coogler insisted that even with Boseman, the story would have involved dealing with loss

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

As T’Challa/Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman

In that tale, Wakandans would already be in mourning. But since the film’s opening states the obvious, we see that on screen instead

Now dead is King T’Challa. His absence leaves two voids: one as Wakanda’s ruler and the other as the Black Panther, the nation’s protector

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Killmonger’s destruction of the Vibranium plants required for this transition in the first movie makes it seem as though replacing the Black Panther is impossible. As a result, Wakanda seems hopeless and lost

Vibranium is a word that sounds eerily similar to vibrance, so don’t pass it by. The sequel recognizes that without Chadwick Boseman, we have all lost that

One versus five

Because of this, the sequel allows art to imitate life as four different women lament the centrifugal male figure in their lives

The loss of Ramonda’s only son must be mourned in addition to her recent widowhood. Her extreme overprotectiveness of her last child, Shuri, results naturally from this

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Wired is the source of the image

Shuri, on the other hand, struggles with using her rage as a coping mechanism for her grief. Nakia, the only person who could assist her, skipped even her lover’s funeral before leaving for Wakanda

Okoye, the Dora Milaje’s warrior leader, is the next. With everyone’s heart broken, she is attempting to hold the pieces of a kingdom together

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Riri Williams, a fresh new character whom Target hinted at in a series of ads, is the last one we meet

In this tale, Riri plays the role of the outsider who ties the puzzle together

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

In some ways, Coogler changed Riri’s name in the dialogue to Shuri. This sums up the character. She is Black Panther 2’s technological goddess

Riri and Shuri, who are sisters from different worlds, are undoubtedly brought together by their shared intellectual interests. However, it is an external presence that truly ties them together

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Even though the word “Atlantis” is never used in this movie, King Namor and his people are introduced for the first time in the MCU. They aren’t Atlanteans at all, presumably to avoid comparisons to DC’s Aquaman

They actually live in Talokan’s underwater realm and, while they are not Wakandans, they are certainly more powerful

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Wakandans and Talokans are accidentally introduced by the United States, and a tense relationship results

The Latin American actor Tenoch Huerta Mejia, who was previously unheard of, and who gets the uncommon “and introducing

. ” credit in the movie, plays a pivotal role in the conflict

Wakanda Forever is a struggle. Namor poses a threat to peace and has no regard for humanity

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

In the process, he unintentionally starts a war with five fierce women, the majority of whom are Wakandan

The movie’s issues really start to show here. Throughout the story, Namor’s motivations are inconsistent

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Bloodshed might have been avoided if he had come to the same conclusions sooner rather than later

Additionally, I didn’t find the character to be as interesting as the one in the comics. Namor first appeared in The Invaders, making him older than Marvel itself

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

I’m fascinated whenever Namor engages in conflict with or collaborates with the Fantastic Four because he’s such a conflicted antihero

He mostly comes across as a haughty jerk in Wakanda Forever. Although they are hollow, Coogler gives the character some scenes of sympathy. That irritates me because Killmonger, one of the top three MCU villains in my opinion, was presented in Black Panther. Black Panther has two talent gaps as a result of this

Boseman is one, whereas Michael B

The second is Jordan

Namor is just not as interesting as Killmonger. A poor analogy

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

In fact, I found myself thinking about relationships throughout the movie at various points. You typically date a few people you know won’t last long after a breakup

Get over your ex types, they are. The same sentiment can be applied to Namor and the whole film. Making a Black Panther sequel without the Black Panther presented Coogler with an impossible task. He unquestionably gave it his all. And allow me to be clear on this: I’d give Wakanda Forever a 7

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Overall, 5 out of 10

Simply put, it isn’t Black Panther

Marvel Studios. When we see the same actors onscreen without Boseman or Jordan, the echoes of that movie seem like vivid dreams of loved ones who have passed away

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

I’m avoiding a few spoilers here and will elaborate on this topic a few months from now

Nevertheless, it perfectly captures how I felt about the sequel in general. I would probably awe at Wakanda Forever’s caliber and emotional resonance if I hadn’t seen Black Panther. We would have loved Wakanda just as much in 2018 if this tale had been our introduction to it

It’s not, though

So I didn’t

Accepting What Wakanda Forever Is. Consider the same scenario for a widow using the dating analogy once more

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

When you meet a potential partner, you realize you need to start dating again. But you’re aware that they’re not quite as good as the partner you found to be worthy of marriage

At some point in the future, they might be. Simply put, you’re not prepared to feel that way about someone else once more

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

That’s a brief summary of my experience with Wakanda Forever

There were so many things I liked about the movie, especially Riri Williams. In this movie, Dominique Thorne steals every scene just like Letitia Wright did in Black Panther

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Recall that at the time, fans had already demanded that she succeed T’Challa as either the leader of Wakanda or the Black Panther. In this role, Riri brings that kind of, uh, vibrance

Martin Freeman also makes another appearance and lends his endearing everyman charm. Even more so, he makes a shocking revelation that I find genuinely delightful

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

When it comes to M’Baku, Winston Duke is back and once again excellent

The women of Wakanda are given priority in Coogler’s narrative on purpose. Picture from Vanity Fair

Due to this, M’Baku is relegated to supporting roles and serves primarily as comic relief. Keep in mind that he wasn’t just T’Challa’s friend; he was also an enemy

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

His grief would therefore manifest itself differently from that of the four Wakandan women. It belongs in another narrative

However, I’m still holding out hope that he’ll somehow have a bigger role in the upcoming Wakanda series on Disney

But even so, I can see why he’s not crucial to the story. The final words. Coogler was faced with that difficult decision

He was in mourning after recently losing his friend. But the future of a franchise and hundreds of millions of dollars were at stake. Consequently, Coogler was forced to improvise a new plot

Review — Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

The one he created is incredibly captivating

Just not the one we all would have chosen, it’s different

I attended a funeral that Marvel invited me to, and the entire time I was grieving and emotionally empty even as I was in awe of the people who had been more severely affected than I was

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has finally arrived in theaters after four turbulent years, the passing of the franchise’s leading character, and a turbulent sequel production

That will be the only topic covered in this week’s MarvelBlog News for obvious reasons. Everything depends on it

Wakanda Forever Gets Off to a Flying Start

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Start by going over the fundamentals. On Thursday, the North American premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took place

With regard to Friday’s box office, Thursday sneaks for the sequel brought in an impressive $28 million

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

That’s significant because it’s below the sum that Thor: Love and Thunder attained, which suggested a lackluster weekend

However, Friday also happened to be Veteran’s Day, which caused a surge in ticket sales

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Hasbro/Marvel Studios are the sources

The sequel to Black Panther drew a sizable American audience on that holiday. Due to the holiday boost, Friday’s sales were $84 million. In terms of box office receipts, that ranks as the tenth-best Friday ever

When analyzing the Saturday and Sunday numbers, a few additional variables are taken into account. Yet Wakanda Forever accomplished what seemed insurmountable

Box office revenue on that first Friday was higher than the $75 made by Black Panther in 2018. 9 million dollars, plus $25. 2 million in revenue on Thursday

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

No sane person anticipated that Black Panther 2 would surpass the $202 million opening weekend haul of its predecessor

Disney and Marvel were after all marketing a Black Panther movie without the character’s internationally renowned actor. A tough sell, that one

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

In light of this, a domestic opening weekend gross of $180 million must be viewed positively by all parties

Disney predicts a $330 million opening weekend worldwide gross for the movie

The International Problem in Peril

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

You’ll notice that North America accounts for the lion’s share of Wakanda Forever’s revenue. That is not an accident

The international box office is still a hazy proposition for all Hollywood films, as was already mentioned here

Due to the pandemic’s lingering effects, some countries haven’t fully resumed their normal operations. Others simply don’t have the same level of theatrical demand as they did in 2019

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Comparatively, Black Panther’s sequel’s opening weekend gross of $370 million was outperformed by $40 million. That wasn’t a reasonable expectation, though, to reiterate

The fact that Wakanda Forever’s international box office BP2 has doubled that of recent films The Batman and Black Adam is what matters

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

I used Thor: Love and Thunder, the most recent MCU film, as the boundary for this title

Thor 4 made $303. During its first weekend, 2 million people watched it globally. Additionally, foreign countries accounted for more than half of its overall global total

Oddly, the economy back then was stronger than it had been for Wakanda Forever

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Both films were shown in China, which had a significant negative impact on sales but not on the overall result

Hollywood films do not do well in China. The market is more important for its ancillary income like merchandise and potential licensing

Due to all of these factors, Wakanda Forever legitimately faces one of the reviews that is the most open-ended of any tentpole movie I can ever remember. And I used to make a living by writing about box office

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Critics will draw attention to how poorly it has performed in comparison to the original and selectively compare it to other Marvel movies

The $250 million production budget of the film will be used as evidence by fans of the franchise to claim that it will probably make money when it is released in theaters

Personally, I had kept tabs on early ticket sales and tracking and prepared for the worst possible outcome here. Therefore, I consider Wakanda Forever’s performance to be a strong demonstration of franchise power

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

I find it amazing that BP2 made 10% more money on opening weekend than Thor4

Black Panther’s reputation was strong enough to triumph over insurmountable odds

The statistics of Wakanda Forever Let’s talk about a couple of the sequel’s outstanding issues

First off, Wakanda Forever was a huge hit with both critics and viewers. BP2 has an 84 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 75 percent rating among Top Critics as of the time of this writing

In the meantime, the movie hasn’t experienced review bombing (yet?)

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Therefore, with a 95 percent Audience Score, it is absolutely brilliant. Wakanda Forever boasts a Metacritic score of 67, which is higher than the most recent Doctor Strange or Thor sequels

The grades on IMDb and Cinemascore are somewhat at odds

IMDb currently rates BP2 at 7. 4 out of 10, which is respectable but unremarkable. However, Cinemascore, whose ratings are based on opening day attendance, gave the movie an A

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Without a doubt, Black Panther received an A. Therefore, this isn’t quite as good. Still, an A is significantly superior to the Bs received for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder

Recall that Cinemascore uses an odd curve

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Anything that doesn’t receive an A- isn’t a good film that will probably last longer. But a movie that gets an A ought to get good buzz

And A titles are incredibly uncommon, highlighting how significant of a cinematic accomplishment Black Panther was. These statistics taken together show that viewers liked Wakanda Forever, probably even more than they anticipated

Final Reflections

Unfortunately, the box office picture overall is more cloudy, at least for the MCU as a whole

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

The global opening weekend of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness brought in $450 million. The two subsequent releases haven’t come close to matching this total since then

In the meantime, the MCU’s reputation has suffered. Despite the fact that I disagree with the evaluation, I frequently read remarks from respectable people who disparage Phase 4’s general quality

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

Phase 4 unquestionably comes to a successful conclusion with Wakanda Forever, but Marvel still needs to do some convincing to get viewers to return to the theater

However, it’s possible that this is a general industry issue rather than a Marvel problem

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

The era of the mega-blockbuster is either coming to an end or is currently in decline. Either way, you could present evidence to support your claim

Hollywood needs to put out more quality films, according to the head of AMC Theatres. Marvel obviously accomplished that just now and received a positive outcome

MarvelBlog News for November 14th, 2022

But rather than a home run, I’d call it more of a double.

We’re only now beginning to recognize the lasting influence Thanos and Loki have had on the film industry several years after the fact

Best MCU Movie Villains

Even now, all MCU spinoffs face criticism because of (potentially unjust) comparisons to Thanos and Loki made by their villains

I wondered what this thought process was. Who are the greatest MCU movie villains to date, if those two bad guys are removed from the list? Rumlow, Brock

Kevin Feige is incredibly effective, which is something I admire

Best MCU Movie Villains

He rejects the idea of useless parts. Brock Rumlow, for instance, is first introduced to us in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Because he is Crossbones, an assassin who enjoys collecting weapons and is a fairly common supervillain, comic book fans immediately recognize him as bad news

Best MCU Movie Villains

By introducing Rumlow as someone who idolizes Captain America, Feige and the movie’s directors, the Russo Brothers, solve this issue

Seriously, the entire time Steve Rogers performs, that guy is overcome with awe

Of course, that makes the altercation between the two in the elevator much more personal. The fight ultimately involves Rumlow and his hero, Rogers, despite the fact that there are a lot of other guys on the elevator at the time

This shows that Rumlow will go to any lengths, including murdering his hero, to carry out a mission

Best MCU Movie Villains

Later, the character makes a second appearance in Captain America: Civil War, where he once more sacrifices millions of people in order to complete his mission

The distinction between good and evil is becoming increasingly elusive in our day and age

Brock Rumlow exemplifies this to a T. Barnes, Bucky

Diane de Poitiers, a famous French noblewoman, once said, “To have a good enemy, choose a friend: he knows where to strike

“. The fundamental idea behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier is that

Steve Rogers is a hilariously flawless hero who is completely incapable of doing wrong. When that person squares off against a foreign terrorist who also happens to be his best friend, how does he respond? picture via Pinterest

In this movie, Bucky Barnes plays a relentless, destructive force of nature

Best MCU Movie Villains

The fun comes from watching the noble Rogers gradually expose the hero hidden inside the villain by tearing away at Barnes’ impenetrable exterior

This movie is a masterwork of narrative

Vanko, Ivan Given how polarizing Iron Man 2 has been over the years, I might receive cards and letters for this one

Justin Hammer is probably considered the better villain in the movie, even by those who like it

I completely understand that as a longtime fan of Sam Rockwell

Best MCU Movie Villains

But that viewpoint is demonstrably incorrect

Ivan Vanko’s performance as Tony Stark’s evil counterpart is the key to Iron Man 2’s entire plot. Despite the fact that Vanko did not have a fortunate upbringing, the two men have similar intelligence and work ethics

Vanko begins working on a riskier version of the weaponized suits after Stark establishes proof of concept. He then adopts the name Whiplash

Best MCU Movie Villains

Regardless of your opinion of the film, it is impossible to deny that the scenes depicting Whiplash’s coming-out celebration during a Formula 1 race are compelling

Pic from SyFy Wire. Vanko’s disdain for cake eaters like Hammer also reflects Stark’s own contempt for bureaucracy

The men are eerily similar to one another, giving them a good reason to dislike one another

Best MCU Movie Villains

As an MCU story, it’s In a Mirror, Darkly

The next two villains put a different twist on the same idea

It’s a tainted mentor/protégé relationship’s domineering nature. Peter Parker is still in shock following the death of his father figure in Spider-Man: Far from Home

Best MCU Movie Villains

Here comes Mysterio, a multiverse-hopping superhero who resembles a more composed version of the late Tony Stark. Parker quickly puts his trust in this man, which is unusual for someone who is currently on a school trip

But when we are young, everyone is stupid

Later, we discover the truth about Mysterio, whose irate tech character would likely be more sympathetic today given the recent Twitter shenanigans

Best MCU Movie Villains

Even though it is not as deep as.

, the depth of this betrayal still cuts deep

Ironmonger

Best MCU Movie Villains

In 2008, I steadfastly jumped on the Iron Man bandwagon while the rest of the world gushed over The Dark Knight, ultimately naming it the year’s top film

The complex relationship between Tony Stark and Obadiah Stane, his late father’s partner, was essential to the movie’s quality

Iron Man requires a little bit more scrutiny in light of what we know about Howard Stark in order to understand how the man could have so drastically misjudged his partner

Best MCU Movie Villains

To permanently take over Stark Enterprises, Stane planned Tony’s abduction. That’s

.

pretty extreme. Once more, the normally carefree playboy was affected by Stane’s level of betrayal

Best MCU Movie Villains

Tony had looked to Stane as a father figure ever since Howard Stark passed away. That person hired mercenaries to abduct and kill Stark

Stane’s first thought was, “I’ve gotta steal that!” after Stark created an Iron Man suit in a cave. Obadiah Stane and Iron Monger from the Marvel Legends series. Hasbro is shown in the picture

His next thought was, “My suit is better,” which came later. I’m going to use it to murder Tony Stark

Best MCU Movie Villains

“. In retrospect, Howard Stark made lousy moral judgments

Even now, I’m unsure if Jarvis made a good butler. Yes, there were times when Avengers: Age of Ultron was a bit of a mess

Joss Whedon, the film’s flawed director, and Feige disagreed on a number of production-related issues. Today, most people support Feige because of the passing of time

Best MCU Movie Villains

However, we cannot discount what James Spader accomplished in the role of Ultron. a close associate of Robert Downey Jr

Spader has proven to be Tony Stark’s sin monument since they were teenagers and the ideal counterpoint. After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the remains of an Ultron Sentry can be seen in a display case in the ride line

Avery and Rebecca Kaplan are shown in the picture. Finally, the inventor produced something he had no control over

Stark was alarmed when it started to act independently

An Isaac Asimov superhero tale then came to pass

Best MCU Movie Villains

And it was fantastic! Because of Ultron’s fierce independence, he was able to capitalize on humanity’s innate anxiety about the potential rise of machines

Karl Zemo

Name as many MCU supervillains as have actually triumphed

Helmut Zemo is the lone survivor

Best MCU Movie Villains

Zemo didn’t engage in a frantic scramble to seize power, in contrast to many other villainous characters in the MCU. Instead, Zemo devised a strategy, carried it out flawlessly, and ultimately destroyed the Avengers

Tony Stark was convinced by Zemo that the Stark matriarch had been murdered by Bucky Barnes

Tony feels conflicted about Howard, but he has soft feelings for his mother

Best MCU Movie Villains

The strongest heroes on Earth dispersed as Zemo laughed, Cappy defended his friend as expected, and Tony sought retribution

Later, he danced

Jon Watts is a complete genius and someone who most likely has a fascinating tale to tell

Best MCU Movie Villains

He came up with Peter Parker’s worst nightmare, and that’s the only reason I can think of for it. What if the girl accompanying Spider-Man on his homecoming date was a supervillain’s daughter, Watts wondered

Please ask Watts about his own experience at the homecoming dance if you ever interview him. Please tell me. Vulture, however, functions well as a character for two reasons

First, he was wronged by the government

Best MCU Movie Villains

He was working with people he trusted to run a successful business. Then, a superhero incident forced the company to suffer business losses, which ultimately led to their jobs being lost

The character used some of the tools to start a life of crime because he had no other option

His moral code was peculiar, though. The rare movie villain who respects his opponent enough to offer a compromise is Vulture, in fact

Best MCU Movie Villains

Parker’s superpowers made Vulture very happy, and his daughter, Liz, enjoyed the relationship. The bad guy enjoyed knowing that Parker was taking good care of his daughter

Parker was attempting to prosecute criminals on his own behalf

Therefore, he voluntarily gave up his dating life in order to catch the bad guy

Best MCU Movie Villains

Why Spider-Man: Homecoming succeeds is due to its Shakespearean elements

The protagonist must make a decision that will have devastating effects on all the families as they become more connected

Best MCU Movie Villains

This story is successful because Vulture adds the necessary element of plausibility to prevent the whole thing from reading like a subpar Riverdale episode

Killmonger. The best MCU movie villain to date, absent Thanos and Loki, would likely be Killmonger, in my opinion. This character is perfect in every way

First of all, he is correct. He should be resentful of having witnessed his father being taken from him as a child

Best MCU Movie Villains

Killmonger is also risky. It’s unsettling to think that all those scars on his body represent war fatalities. Superheroes are not allowed to kill in the MCU. On the other hand, this supervillain doesn’t just do that

He murders a lot and does it with pride. That is horrifyingly perverse

Killmonger is family, just like in a number of the other stories presented here

Best MCU Movie Villains

He is the cousin of the current King of Wakanda and an estranged prince

In other words, the character has all the necessary components to become a classic supervillain. Everything is also made better by the fact that Killmonger is on par with Black Panther in combat. Moreover, Michael B. Jordan practices his performance to the nth degree
