The MCU has now reached a point where practically any installment shall be successful due to name brand recognition, so I, frankly, want to see it fail; it is a product of a giant soulless and tyrannical corporation, and everyone enjoys seeing giants fall from grace. I firmly believe that money cannot buy talent, but the very existence of the MCU is making it difficult for me to maintain that belief, and I also feel that it is smothering competition and leaving little room for new and innovative ideas. Currently, major franchises from major companies are dominating theaters, and I want to see something new and avant-garde from a small studio led by a young and amatuer director disrupt the status quo. I want to see innovation and risk taking, not more of the same formula that has been used and reused over the years, and I hope that other people share that desire.

We'll have to see how they handle the transition to "the next generation".

Of the original six Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow seem to have been written out of the story for the foreseeable future, and the fate of Hulk is unclear. Only Thor and Hawkeye are still confirmed "active".

This means fans will have to bond with a new line-up of core characters and actors. If successful it could be as great as Dio replacing Ozzy. If unsuccessful it could be like Ian Gillan replacing Dio. :facepalm

Is there even an active Avengers roster at this time? I do not believe that any of the currently active superheroes have allied themselves with sufficient regularity to be considered a team.

As a major fan of all of those musicians, I think that Born Again, the one album that Black Sabbath made with Ian Gillan as the vocalist, was actually a very well-written and highly underrated album, and, while it is great that Gillan rejoined Deep Purple not long after that album was released, I think that it would have been very interesting to see how Black Sabbath would have evolved if Gillan had remained as its vocalist.

Can't believe we're more than halfway (6/10 titles) through this famous graph. It looked enormous when it came out.

Damn you're right. They brought out a fuckton of content within 2 years. Forgot there's a 4th Thor and a hawkeye series coming though.
 
In the first Iron Man movie, Tony clearly had sexual intercourse with a female reporter, and, in The Incredible Hulk, Bruce and Betty started to engage in sexual activity before Bruce had to stop, to prevent himself form transforming, but, apart from those scenes, there has been very little sexual content in the MCU, which bothers me. I understand that the movies focus on action and fighting, but do the characters not have any sexual desires? Is there something suppressing the sex drives of everyone in the MCU?

These are family movies which kids watch as well. Not mad porno DVDs.

Thor 4 and the untitled movie for November 2023 got the smaller pushes, while everything else (Marvel related) got 3-5 month delays :giogio Two untitled movies were removed, I bet one of them was Deadpool since Ryan Reynolds said he’s going on sabbatical. But, so far GotG 3 seems to be the only movie unaffected by the Marvel slate shift

I dare say that 97% of all sex scenes in movies are completely unnecessary and add absolutely nothing of value to the stories of those movies, I also say the same about most romantic sub-plots in movies btw.

The scene in Iron Man 1 had the point of showing the type of person Tony Stark was before Afghanistan so in that case was acceptable but I think the almost sex scene in The Incredible Hulk was mostly unnecessary and I can't think of any place where a sex scene would fit in any of the other MCU movies without it being obvious blatant fanservice.

Some of these movies have great violence, so are you saying that violence is more acceptable than is sexuality?

That does make sense.
