Its recently been confirmed that Infinity War will have over 60 characters, with about 32 of them sharing one scene alone. Obviously the film can't have go on like that, most of the film will probably focus on small groups and dynamics. The likely groups will probably be:

Thor: Ragnarok is amazing. It’s a superhero movie with the sub-genre ‘comedy,’ and it’s more a comedy than it is a superhero flick. The exact mix is indeterminable, but I laughed my ass off more than I have in any Marvel movie to date, and that’s comparing to how I lost probably 7% of my booty meat from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Solid performances all around, especially considering the CGI element.

The best Thor movie by a massive amount. Better than most MCU installments by a fairly large amount, also.

Agreed that Thor is pretty damn amazing :) Definitely more of a comedy than superhero movie I feel.
To me it's more or less on par with the second Guardians movie, while I laughed the most with the first Guardians (actually most with Deadpool, but not MCU I know). In terms of overall quality Ironman probably still comes out on top for me personally (despite the somewhat disappointing finale). The Captain movies have always felt a little overrated, especially the first one, which I thought was at most middle of the pack among Marvel movies. Did really like Winter Soldier though.

Finally got around to watching Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  I quite liked it.  It really expanded on all the characters and their relationships.  It was also just fun to boot.

Oh and Black Widow is finally getting her own movie.

At the moment, Marvel has only hired Jac Schaeffer (her work includes Olaf's Frozen Adventure and Nasty Women, an all female remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) to write a screenplay, with the possible film being slated for a post Phase 3 release, which means around 2020 at the earliest.

Bought tickets for Black Panther today. My theater has reserved seating, and buying tickets for February 18th (a Sunday morning, not even opening day) had very few decent seats left (not super close or off to the side), so I'm glad I bought it now.

Well-made movie and a welcome departure from the established Marvel formula. Neither the best nor the worst. More restrained than most, but many scenes were just too on-the-nose, leaving little space for the audience to think. The soundtrack was phony as hell but the visuals were awesome. The accents didn't work--several people had a really hard time maintaining it. Some of the sc-ifi elements were annoying; whenever a movie invokes "nanites", I tend to go, "Oh fuck off," and tune out. The supporting cast was excellent. The mid-credits scene, the post-credits scene a little better. The ending was a little sloppy.

Yes. Yes it is.

Its the PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 and its using the framing device of Deadpool having kidnapped Fred Savage to reenact the Grandfather and Grandson scenes of the Princess Bride.

And Fred really lives up to his surname.

I'm not sure. Mostly I disapprove of the introduction of a last-reel new character, one whose existence hasn't even been hinted at before, to save the day. It's lazy writing and the minute I saw the pager scene at the end of Infinity War, I realised just what a plot cop-out Captain Marvel potentially could be.

It's interesting to note that amongst the thicket of Marvel intertextuality and True Believer moments, the one note of Captain Marvel criticism so far in this thread centers on the introduction of something new.

I think that's more of a criticism of Infinity War than Captain Marvel. And less a criticism of something new than a possible deus ex machina.
