    I’m not talking about major stories, but little things. I’m saying we keep all stories the same, Age of Ultron still happens, Civil War still happens GotG still happens, but maybe there a few creative choices you would have done differently.

    Here’s my example, Bucky gets the shield instead of Falcon. I’m not mad about it, I’m fine, but I thought Bucky was going to get it. And no it’s not a race thing.

    More time with Steve and Bucky as friends.

    What say you, what would you change, if anything?

    Cut movie tickets to under 7 dollars again. Does that count? It makes little sense that movie and snacks for a couple now cost as much as a medium to lower upper tier local restaurant meal.

    I'd tell them in '08 they were getting X-Men back, and to plant the seeds for that sooner.
    ....course, come to think of it, if I've got a time machine, I keep Marvel from going bankrupt in the 90's so their movie rights don't scatter apart in the first place.

    Would have liked to see a bit more Hulk, It seems like no one really knows how to write the character for the screen.

    That’s not really what I was talking about. I was thinking with the existing movies, what changes would you make, if any? You definitely plant the seeds for X-Men as they kind of did with Wanda, even if you didn’t know you were getting them back.

    Here’s another example, make Ben Kingsley the actual Mandarin and not an actor.

    Nah, I thought that was genius.
    Mandarin is overpowered, and takes heat away from Thanos.
    Pulling a Wizard Of Oz with the character was the right thing to do.

    You want the brainwashed cyborg-ish assassin that brutally murdered the Starks to be the new symbol of America? He could maybe, maybe be the new Black Widow(er). :shrug:

    He’s no longer brainwashed.

    Shit, if we're allowing dark fucked up Captain Americas, why not go all the way, and have it be Punisher?
    Then they can canonize Netflix-verse like the Jarvis cameo canonized all the ABC shows.

    They did that in the comics, along with having Bucky fill in at one point. Didn't produce anything close to level of outrage that Falcon-Cap did. I wonder why. :chris:

    So what's your beef with Falcon, anyway? :shrug:

    Mandarin doesn’t have to be overpowered, he can just be another OBL and it would fit with the first Iron-Man where the terrorists had the same symbol.

    Minor changes?

    I think Black Widow should have realized who Red Skull was on Vormir. She of all the Avengers would probably know Captain America's history.

    Show us Aunt May finding out that Spiderman was Peter. She survived the snap.

    Did you see the end of Homecoming? Also

    Done.

    Marvel is successful in the 90s and launch a movie series with their biggest franchise, X-Men. Having the name recognition and success they play things safer, and when they decide to expand the cinematic universe they don't dare take a chance on doing something different.

    Spielberg directs Tom Cruise as Iron Man.

    Well, that settles it.
    I have to go back in time one last time, and snap Captain Conspiracy to dust before he writes this thread.

    Tom Cruise as Iron Man?

    Ryan Reynolds as Hawkeye. (No Deadpool!)

    Nicolas Cage as Thor.

    The Rock as the Hulk but he's doesn't ever get big. He's like Lou Ferrigno Hulk.

    [​IMG]

    Uma Thurman as Black Widow.

    and

    Owen Wilson as Captain America.

    :scary::shep:

    I second the motion to go back in time and dust Captain Conspiracy. :diaf:

    I’d like to re-edit the first Iron Man movie so that Don Cheadle is War Machine instead of the other guy (I forget the actor’s name).

    Just to keep things consistent.

    Careful now.

    If Terrence Howard hears that he may give you some domestic violence for messing with his residuals. ;)

    I just can’t see Tony Stark hosting a weapons expo like he did in Iron Man II. A tech expo, sure. One that includes weapons? Nope.

    I can. In Iron Man 1 he was supremely proud of his weaponry. Then when he saw how it was being misused (ie that the US's enemies got their hands on it) he pulled back.

    Iron Man 2 saw him at the peak of his confidence and arrogance. He assumed he had fixed all the problems and that he had everything under control. He'd totally still celebrate the firepower.
