    I'm sure we can find a way to wipe you out from all existence in every universe.

    I'd just like to have seen the storylines stick a little closer to the originals they're taken from. Not total, slavish exactitude, but there were things that were better in the comics. Like Thanos being motivated by his love of Death, instead of just being nutsy-kookoo.

    I wouldn't tinker with the MCU. It's been enormously successful and it's not clear it would still have been if key elements of it were different.

    For instance, it's said that they wanted Tom Cruise for Iron Man. If I had heard back in 2007 that the producers had cast Cruise over RDJ, I would've celebrated it. And I would've been wroooooooong.

    I do think that at some point--maybe not now, maybe in ten years or so--they should re-cast the Avengers and tell new stories with them. Maybe they could be in the same chronology, maybe as a reboot.

    I want to see Fantastic Four and the X-Men, and sooner rather than later. I think those two properties could make the next phases of the MCU surpass what we've already got. I could be wrong--and I hope I am--but I kinda doubt whether The Eternals or Shangi-Chi are going to register as strongly as Thor or Captain America.

    Remember how no-one thought Guardians of the Galaxy could "register strongly" because of the talking tree and raccoon? Yeah, about that . . .

    Hey, if it turns out I'm totally wrong and we get awesome movies with these characters, I'll be glad. But just because Marvel's beaten the skeptics before doesn't mean they always will.

    We live in a world where an Aquaman movie outgrosses a Batman/Superman movie, so anything can happen.

    what people seem to have lost track of was that the mcu as we know it began by a film that at the time was an extreme risk.
