In truth Ant-Man had a weird formula that...idk worked greatly. It had a lot of humor in it and it was probably the most I have ever laughed during a movie
Well, when you start out as the brainchild of Edgar Wright, you'd do well to play to your strengths, which is comedy, so that's no surprise. I definitely did not go into Thor: The Dark World expecting to laugh half as much as I did, but it was a pleasant surprise and made what otherwise would have been too dark and slow for me to enjoy more something that I gladly watch over and over. I was prepared to start regarding Ant-Man as more of a comedy than anything once I started seeing more of these new trailers and clips. Although some of the reviews on youtube are saying it is, above all, a heist film like the Ocean's Eleven series. I have to admit, I've never seen a heist film from start to finish. Not a big fan of that kind of thing. But I think the insertion of superheroes into the mix will make it a winner.
Speaking of which, the guys at Marvel say they don't make superhero movies, they make genre films that just happen to have superheroes in them. So a couple of them, I get, but there's a few I don't. Can someone fill in the blanks?
Iron Man - ?
The Incredible Hulk - Chase film
Iron Man 2 - ?
Thor - ?
Captain America: The First Avenger - Period Piece (1940's)
Avengers - ?
Iron Man 3 - ?
Thor: The Dark World - ?
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Political Thriller
Guardians of the Galaxy - Space Opera
Avengers: Age of Ultron - ?
Ant-Man - Heist film
So what did they intend for all those question marks on that list? I think I heard of what some of them were but can't remember what was said, or if they ever double-dip and make two films of the same genre. What do you guys think?
Also, has anyone seen this article about why the MCU is bad for the film genre? I disagree with almost every point it makes but I wanted to see if anyone here feels strongly one way or another.http://whatculture.com/film/10-ways-that-the-marvel-cinematic-universe-has-ruined-cinema.php
