So after seeing Captain Marvel, rewatching Aquaman and generally having insomnia right now I made a list of some of the superhero movie thoughts and questions that have been bugging me. Not just why doesn’t Mera take control of Atlantis cause she’s certainly powerful and smarter than Orm…
Do people in Marvel/DC worlds have like acts of super-heroing in their insurance policies? I thought that watching the chase in Italy. What would that poor old woman tell her insurance? “Aquaman fell through my roof and then ran out my wall…”
Does that also include acts of aliens for good or ill?
Speaking of Aquaman is he immortal? I’m a little shaky on that. On the one hand there’s all this high-tension stakes and Black Manta does injure him but on the other hand dude took a rocket to his chest and walked it off. I mean it is a nice chest though…
Why does Nick Fury wear the patch instead of replace the eye? He could probably come up with some awesome tech for eyes by the way. Does he just think it makes him look cooler?
Can I count Fury Road as a “superhero movie” because I kind of do?
Would the Dark Phoenix story work with Scarlet Witch since she’s already very embedded in the MCU and space and an assortment of players have been introduced? Or would that be considered blasphemy?
Yes I still want to know how sex would work for Eddie Brock/ Venom. Would Venom step out? He doesn’t seem the type. Could a child carry part of the parasite? So like he would reproduce with Eddie? Those are answers I want in the next Venom movie and I’m totally willing for it to be rated R.
I’ve probably thought about this more than actual biology.
I know I’m nostalgic lately but even after all these years and some seriously good movies I still find Selina Kyle/Catwoman might be my favorite female role in any of them.
Is Hulk evolving for a reason or did he just get up one day look in the mirror and say, “Ugh. This is all so dated I need to step up my game?”
If Atlanta was Queen of Atlantis to such an extent they thought her bastard son could have a good claim to the throne why the hell did she have to marry some loser and have a son with him in the first place?
I will admit my superficial ass occasionally watched the Captain Marvel movie thinking her hair is fine but really not up to superhero standards here. Annette Benning’s hair was good though! Okay, okay maybe Carol had a lot on her mind but still!
If we can’t have a Spiderman/ Deadpool film a la the comics why not the aptly named webisodes? They’ve done them before.
Not giving away to many spoilers I hope but if Marvel does Secret Invasion which characters could potentially piss me off the most being a Skrull. Tony would be tops… though if they clone Cap can we make sure they do it to the beard era Cap than I’d be fine with that 🙂

Well thanks for this. 😳 Insomnia here I come! Insurance wise- Farmers would be there (if you know the commercials you would understand. If not I will have to send you a link 😂) I got more thoughts but I have to process. 😬
Probably 🙂 But I wonder if there’s some government protection for the superheroes against damages. I mean how many people would have tried to sue Tony Stark in real life?
True. It really is amazing how fast they rebuild as well!
Well let’s see here. My thoughts on Dark Phoenix are… yes Wanda would work better at this point because we’re on iteration #2 with the X-Men and they look like they’re gonna whiff on the story again lol. Might as well go with Dark Wanda!! 🙂
Yeah with all the Marvel tech why doesn’t Fury have some badass eye thing? Great question.
I would love to see a badass Selina Kyle/ Catwoman team up with Harley Quinn? I’d watch that.
Fury Road is definitely a superhero movie at times. I’m trying to remember the scene where I was like no… dude did NOT survive that! Actually there are 43,851 scenes like that.
I think Elizabeth Olson could pull it off to. If only I could figure out some way to get Fassbender and McAvoy into the MCU 🙂 And a Harley/Selina team-up would be fantastic! She could be some mentor figure to Harley who would of course be awestruck!
Fassbender and McAvoy in the MCU would be friggin awesome. And maybe a new Mystique (I want a version like the comics, where’s she more evil).
Elizabeth Olson could totally pull it off, I think! Nothing against Sophie, I mean she’s bad and all as Sansa, but,,, IDK, they’re missing the whole cosmic angle from what I’m seeing. Whereas Marvel seems to be embracing cosmic lately with Capt. Marvel and Guardians, etc. ?
Yes on a new Mystique! Fassbender or McAvoy could make a good Mr. Fantastic if they introduce them 🙂 The other could be Doctor Doom or someone… it’s been forever since I read those!
I feel like they haven’t given this Jean any time either before jumping right into this story. Looking at it solely based on the films I already know and care more about Wanda even if she’s only a secondary character really. Sophie’s got a tall order here. It will be interesting to see where they go once they have the rights secure and start moving forward.
I watched Aquaman last night. And it bored me. I don’t think I had too high expectations but…
Bummer. I’m partial to Jason (of course) and the Atlantis mythology period so it was right up my alley!
I love this post so much, haha! I’ve thought about the insurance thing many a time! Surely the premiums would be ridiculously high?!
After the second alien invasion you’d think that would put any insurance companies out of business? 🙂
OMG Pfeiffer’s Catwoman is my fav female performance in CBM films too! About Atlanna I think Atlantis is really old fashioned – they respect the blood right to the throne but they still have this awful system of arranged marriages and ‘pure blood’ nonsense
I think I actually appreciate Pfeiffer’s Catwoman/Selina more now as an adult! And I didn’t think about the ‘pure blood’ angle but I guess that’s true. Mera does say its more about her duty.
I have yet to watch both Aquaman and Capitan Marvel, but I don’t care about spoilers that much, so I read your post through and I think all your questionings are INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT. Like, the inssurance thing? That’s so real. I feel so bad for the people who live in these universes, because something always ends up getting destroyed.
Also, the whole thing with Venom having kids. I think the same thing about Hulk sometimes. Like, would his kid also be born with a second green personality that shows up everytime he’s throwing a tantrum?
Super heroes are weird if you think about it too much, lol. But this post was so much funnnn!
Oh Hulk is a good question. I think he’s actually more a part of Bruce Banner than Venom who could technically survive outside of Eddie… Marvel really needs to clear this up 🙂 Also Baby Hulk would be so cute!
Ha ha, great post! I wonder about Venom/Eddie sex scenes, too
As for the Atlanta thing, I think she was forced very early on in her life to marry that guys, so she couldn’t have had time to meet someone else.
I’ve spent way too much time wondering about Venom/Eddie sex 🙂
Did anyone else think Captain Marvel in full suit just looked like she had a mullet? That was bothering me.
Yeah I wasn’t very fond of her hairstyles 🙂 Except actually in the flashbacks to the crash!
