I love FF, but won't bother seeing this version.  I am getting tired of the antagonistic government angle that gets too played up (works for X-Men; FF not so much).  From what I've heard and read about Trank's FF, the government locks down the team or something.  The government doesn't need to be the antagonist, much less the villain.  That's why you've got Dr. Doom.  His inclusion as little more than an undeveloped afterthought, while the FBI locks up Reed and whatever else is just stupid. 

Regarding Galactus, remember that's not what Galactus really looks like; it's what our puny mortal minds are capable of conceiving him to be.

And at least he doesn't look as ridiculous as he looked back when human beings couldn't conceive of him with long sleeves and pants:

"Really?  Sorry."

Seeing "Ant Man" tonight. This will be the first "Comic Super Hero" movie I've ever initiated being willing to pay money to go see in the theater (I probably would have with "Guardians of the Galaxy", but just waited for Blu Ray). Fingers crossed. I'm counting on all of your opinions.

meh....I like Paul Rudd but meh...Last portion of the movie was okay at least.  I guess there's 2 clips at the end.  I left after the 1st one not knowing.

I thought it was awesome.  The first bonus scene is mid way through the credits, but you have to stay to the very end to see the last one, which was totally worth it if you're following what's next for Marvel.

I liked it. Didn't love it. It was very fun and funny. Ant-Man's cell mate/roommate was hilarious. I'm glad I paid to see it.

Oh and I lied, I did see the 3rd Nolan Batman in theaters because of how good the first two were.

A February release for Black Panther?  Wow.  February is usually where most movies go to die.  That is, unless, if Disney/Marvel are trying to claim a part of the year that generally goes un-served by genre films.

Maybe they will try tying into Black History Month?

Deadpool is coming out this February.  Maybe they're trying to make it a viable month?  I know Titanic did monster business in February, mostly because there was zero competition.

February should be ideal for a big movie launch.  People are past the holidays, but it's still too cold to hang outside.  They need some kind of window between Christmas launches and May without landing movies right on top of each other.  That's essentially Valentine's weekend too, so either a good date movie or a place to go if you don't have a date.  Tying into Black History Month for the panther is icing on the cake.
