Cap is the only Avenger that doesn't need 4 movies. He has the best trilogy by far. Iron Man needs 1 more movie where they actually take a storyline from his comics and do it CORRECTLY. So far they touched Demon in a Bottle, Armor Wars & Extremis and did none of them justice. The first Thor was decent, the story was well told, it had a good villain in Loki but Thor: Dark World is one of the most boring films I've ever seen and they managed to make it about Jane Foster and Loki rather than the guy who's name is in the title. Malekith was really uninteresting, it looks like they spent all their time designing how his character should look and forgot to give him a personality.
@sirfizzwhizz I still think Cap would win. I agree with you that the shield is the biggest obstacle and the physically they are probably identical but I always thought that anyway. I just think skill wise Cap has the upper hand because unlike Wolverine he doesn't keep forgetting his training.
@vance_astro: Yes. Both of the first two Fox FF movies were very comic accurate. And very boring. (Of course, the comic keeps getting cancelled too...) Superman Returns was also very faithful to the comics. And fell very flat.
Blade, on the other hand, went WAY off. But was successful enough that Marvel made Blade more like the movie version in order to capitolize on the popularity. X-Men also veered off. Not quite as much, but still a significant amount. The fact is, those two movies showed studios that comic book movies were worth some risk, and some investment, instead of being cheap licensed knockoffs.
Fantastic Four was well casted and that's about it and only well casted in terms of Reed, Johnny, Silver Surfer and Ben. Everyone else was a complete fail especially Doom whom would have needed to be good in these films for them to work. The films focused too much on their interpersonal relationships rather than them as a superhero team..A problem the comics do not have. Doom is a very well developed villain, in fact he's probably THE most well developed villain in the Marvel Universe.
As far as Superman Returns is concerned it was also well casted. Brandon Routh worked as Clark, Kate Bosworth worked as Lois, Kevin Spacey was ok as Lex but many people consider it a decent movie. It didn't get terrible reviews, it just wasn't a box office homerun for a character like Superman.
Blade worked because it's also a Vampire movie. It didn't have to be true to comics because it fits into a genre that's already popular. X-Men isn't complete comic accurate..they at least try to use popular storylines, but they skip a lot of important details which is why every time they announce a new film people say "give the rights back to Marvel."
