As nobody else on the internet is talking about it, Martyn and Gerrod decided to take 19mins and 39 seconds out of their busy schedules. To bring you the only review for Avengers: Endgame, that you’ll be able to find.
Joss Whedon is currently doing the press tour for Avengers:Age of Ultron (review coming soon). During one such interview, Whedon revealed that he actually fought with Marvel to make it a film, instead of a TV series.
“I fought for Daredevil to be a film instead of a TV show. Then under the auspices of Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight. I’m dying to see the show but they released it just as I started the press tour. If the show’s working, the show’s working. Comic books are serialised entertainment and a lot of them lend themselves to TV shows as much or more than they do to movies. I like Daredevil because he’s basically Marvel’s Batman, thanks to Frank Miller basically. So for me I didn’t think they’d be able to sustain that sort of mood on TV but TV has changed so much. It’s come up so much that I think it might just be the right place.”
Marvel kicked off the first of its four Netflix shows earlier this month, with Daredevil. The 13-part series landed on our devices on April the 10th. I’ve already binge watched it twice (review coming soon).
Ultimately, I think Marvel were right to go for a series. Netflix allows them to enter the slightly grittier side of the MCU, that mainstream American networks would never allow. I really hope the rumoured Netflix Punisher show is true.
Fans have been screaming for a solo Hulk movie since Mark Ruffalo first smashed his way on to screen.
Whilst doing press for Avengers:Age of ultron, Ruffalo revealed why we haven’t yet seen a Hulk movie.
“As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn’t really have the rights to that yet. That’s still Universal’s property, so there’s that issue. That’s a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don’t think that’s insurmountable, by the way, but I don’t know where it’s going from here for me”.
Because Universal has distribution rights for a solo Hulk film, that does make a solo film difficult for Marvel. But a few years ago, we thought a Sony/Marvel deal was a pipe dream so a universal/Marvel deal isn’t impossible.
In 2005 Marvel realised they could make their own movies, the problem was that they had sold the rights to all their A-list characters. All they had left was Ant-Man, Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain America, Twins who got their powers from unicorns and the recently acquired rights to an Iron Man film. They decided not to go with the unicorn twins, but instead with Iron Man and in 2008 they used the first “Iron Man” movie to lay the groundwork for The Avengers. Finally, in 2012 we get the most highly anticipated comic book movie of the past decade and it was worth the wait.
This is not just a Marvel movie, it’s also a Joss Whedon movie and fans of Whedon will spot his signature stamped all over it. The script is classic Whedon it’s smart, funny, dramatic, ridiculous, yet over-all brilliant. It reminds you why he was such a power-house on tv, back in the day.
The hardest challenge this movie faced was giving all The Avengers equal screen time and for the most part, they did.
