This seems like a more appropriate place to continue the discussion in the X-Men thread.

I am fine with the idea of a "shared universe" for film properties, if:
1- The directors are allowed to apply their own style and vision for each film instead of being press-ganged into some faceless "house style",
2- The films are able to stand on their own as satisfying, coherent, cohesive pieces of dramatic fiction instead of advertisements for the next installment.


For the most part, Marvel does that well. I have no problem with Cap, Thor, IronMan, and the Avengers being one long serial story, but when they cut out from that like in Antman, they can tone it down a bit. Reference the larger world, but that scene with Falcon was long, unnecessary, and uninteresting. Should have been a quick cameo.

Yeah, maybe follow some of their shows as an example. In Daredevil and JJ, they just reference "the events of New York". That is all I need to tie it in my head without it getting too involved. Even in all of its cheesiness, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does the tie ins well.

But now, since Ant-Man, Black Panther, and others have been in Avengers/Captain America movies, I'm afraid most of the more "minor" characters that get movies will all get that treatment now.

Anyone who says Marvel has no "house style" and they do a good job getting unique directors who are allowed to bring their own style has no idea what they're talking about.

I just assumed the same director was doing all the Marvel movies. *shrugs*

the next round of movies will be interesting since they are the first be made under the new restructured arrangement that theoretically provides the film division with more autonomy. Things changed while Civil War was well underway.

I'm watching Iron Man 3 with my kids. It's so hard to understand that they never stop asking questions.

I'm suddenly dreading Thor 2.

Spider-Man 2 and GotG 3 are both after Avengers 4. It was revealed S-M2 will take place just minutes after the ending of A4.

the next phase hopefully goes towards secret invasion and can be used to describe minor character quirks that seem a little bit out of the norm
