I can see why Kree is apprehensive about adding anymore characters right now. There's an order to it - OG Avengers & villain first row, 2nd gen Avengers & villain second row, Guardians & villain third etc. Also the last column is entirely made out of villains.
This is from Marty Langford (in a VICE article), who is well-known for 'Doomed!: The Untold Story of Roger Corman's Fantastic Four'. It is completely unreasonable to assume that the rights actually expired after the Corman movie and then somehow secretly ended up at Fox.
Interview snippets are not evidence. As I mentioned in other threads, for all intents and purposes Fox seems to run these things and it is unreasonable to expect Feige or Gunn to give an intricate answer on complicated rights issues. Furthermore, you can find similar interview snippets in German regarding Constantin, e.g. in respected newspaper Welt.
I'm also not really sure why you consider disclaimers in the trailer or on websites circumstantial evidence. Fox doesn't own the Fantastic Four, they don't even need to own the general movie rights. They *do* however own their own movie production. You would have to prove that the disclaimer somehow shows that Fox owns the Fantastic Four movie rights (but not the property as a whole), which you are free to do.
Copyright and Trademark claims at the end of trailers and in the DVD/website/et.al. means that the company has the rights and/or trademark to that piece of art. I think the evidence is stronger for Fox owning the movie rights, but I appreciate the evidence you have brought up and your counterarguments.
1. That would be kind of hard to answer without being an insider. When and how exactly did Fox get the movie rights to Deadpool?
2. We don't know for sure. It could be the have veto/movie ownership rights as you are implying, it could be they have consulting rights, it could be anything really. TSG Entertainment co produced the 2015 FF as well. AFAIK, the company who presents is the one with the most rights, usually the movie rights to the source material, not the one(s) in association with
It's par for the course when it comes to Marvel. If El Topo and others are right, it should be easier to regain the rights to the FF movies under Constantin, if not, it will be a hard task. Marvel makes almostnothing on these licensed properties, so there's no incentive for their holders to give them up, especially if you're one of the Big 6. I wouldn't if I were Fox, Sony, or Universal. The can only get those rights they gave away in the 90s if Disney dumps up the trucks full of money or if they serve a termination note under the Copyright Acts of 1976 17 U.S.C. §203 after a certain amount of years. That's assuming the courts find an author who gained rights through work for hire is the original author and eligible to do so, which is doubtful.
Ah fuck did I just get the big Ghost Rider v Aida battle moment from the finale spoiled by those gifs? Oh well, it's my own mistake, I just wasn't prepared for AoS spoilers outside the AoS OT. Sick gifs anyway!
This is the first time we've ever openly discussed Agents of Shield spoilers not even a day after it premiered in these community threads, and I was caught off-guard, and it stings, having been there every week and getting the last moments spoiled..
I'm all for us having open discussions with no spoiler tags though, kind of like what we've done up till now.
I was actually thinking about this today... Avengers 3 is probably going to be my most hyped film of all time. 10 years and 10,000+ minutes of content all lead up to that film (and Avengers 4). It's crazy.
So anyone up for marathoning those 10,000 minutes right before Infinity War or Avengers 4 lol?
There's scans out of the new Empire issue showing now images, and I kind of wish the suit would look like it does behind the camera with wrinkles, making it seem more like clothes rather than be so skin tight as in the movie itself.
Just finished the series finale, and holy shit was this episode some of the best, if not the best of the entire show. I'll even go further, and say this season of Agents of Shield is up there with the very best the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer, being better than all of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist too.
Holy fuck at that finale.
Ghost Rider is one of the best characters too. The powers in this episode felt like something straight out of Thor and Doctor Strange.
Matt looks dumb with Jessica's scarf on his head. I hope it's only for that one hallway scene/episode. Just use the black mask from the first season. Actually, now that Danny Rand don't have a costume, they should have just gone back to the black outfit.
If the suit had wrinkles, and they went to the length as they did adding effects and such like they did for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 suit, it would look even more glorious on screen. Instead of the skin tight suit we've seen in Civil War, and is most likely also getting for Homecoming.
Doing some back-of-a-napkin math, we'd be up to about 12,700 minutes of footage by the time Infinity War releases, haha. Another 45 hours after Spider-Man, Thor Ragnarok, Black Panther, The Defenders, The Punisher, Inhumans and all but the last four episodes of Agents of SHIELD season five release!
We are getting 45 hours of MCU in the next 352 days. Maybe more if Cloak & Dagger, Runawawys or New Warriors come out in that time.
that was my first thought when I heard Coulson wakes up in a spacecraft I.e. SWORD abducted them. It even seemed like the interview with the show runners was pushing that, so curious to see where that goes.
I think just common sense rules apply; don't immediately spoil shows or films I.e. Wait a three to four days or just post in the OTs of said films, don't post direct set leak pictures if there's something super spoilery in them, but rumors are fair game since they're not really confirmable.
