Batman v Superman Captain America Civil War

By Gregg Katzman

Welcome to the very first edition of the Midtown Comics Clash! For our first question, we wanted to know which big 2016 comic book movie fans are more excited to see: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or Captain America: Civil War?  While the two movies do have some obvious parallels (e.g. heroes fighting over ideologies; introduction of new heroes), these two movies look like they’ll also be very, very different.

What I would like to do, is give a wishlist of movies and TV shows that I’d like to see Marvel Studios produce in the future, things that they haven’t announced or haven’t been speculated (I’m leaving Doctor Strange specifically out because I really think they’re going to do a movie for him in Phase 3). I also would like for all of this to be on Netflix, or something similar, as this will be a super-connected series. See what I suggest after the break.

This has been a big comics week for your favorite blogger, and I’ve been busy too!

Thanks to the terrific folks at Marvel Entertainment, I got to attend an advance screening of Thor (along with the Midtown TV crew, which stars… Thor???)! I sat down in the Ziegfield theater for about two hours of Mondo Marvel Magnificence. Ultimate Uru Utilization! Terrific Thor Thrashing… sorry, my inner Stan Lee got out of his cage…
