Why don't they get script writers to stick to the comic book facts? And what comic book facts are these, exactly? Marvel have repeatedly ret-conned and rebooted the majority of their characters at some point in the past: even within the same Universe its almost impossible to find a character with a totally non-contradictory history. There have been ...

Stan Lee isn't casting himself in these cameos - it's a tradition which started back in 1989 with one of the original TV Hulk spin-off movies, one that has endured ever since. From The Trial of the Incredible Hulk - 1989 He may have a producer credit on the Marvel movies, but his involvement doesn't go any deeper than just being a beloved figurehead - ...

Agent Sitwell (Hydra) mentions Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Stephen Strange by name. We know Stark and Banner are Iron Man and the Hulk. Most comics fans will also recognize the name Stephen Strange as Dr. Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme. Sitwell also mentions "an honor student in Iowa City" and a man located in Cairo, Egypt. I don't get the Iowa City ...

Stan's appearances are a sort of wink to the screen, an in-joke to those that know who he is. All of the characters that he's appeared as have had no material signifigance to the universe, they're just there for on-screen fluff. There's no need to try and retcon these characters, they're all different characters played by Stan with no real story purpose.

No. Klaus Schmidt is just an alias not a real name. His real name is Sebastian Shaw. In movie universe they have no relation and as per my comics knowledge they are not in any blood relation. Klaus Schmidt name is just used for the film purpose only it doesn't exists in comics universe and even his Nazi relation is also shown in movie only.

As @VedranŠego's answer says, Fox owns X-men right till they make movie on them. Fox already have lost right of Daredevil and related property, so they are not seen interested in loosing anymore rights of marvel character. Some rumors suggest Fox has to use this property and make film in every 3-4 year too sustain rights. And currently, Fox didn't stopped ...

Here is some info, although I don't know how reliable it is: "Alright, Gambit1024! I understand why Spider-Man and Wolverine can't be in the Avengers now, after all! But there's still one thing I don't get: Can Marvel/Disney get the rights to those characters back?" They sure can, little voice! See, the contracts for say, Daredevil and the FF, say ...

To answer simply, no, the kid is not based on any existing Marvel characters before. However, I believe the character was added by Disney to make the film more kid-friendly, to have a character that children can identify with. If I was not mistaken, at the time of the release, the character was poorly received, as with Mandarin's different take (an image, ...

First things first, Marvel rights are split between Disney(Main owner), fox and Sony. So the reason of changes depends on the owner of rights. For the case of Iron man, Disney have all rights of comics of Iron man and movies too. They are free to do anything with the character as per their need. Iron-Man comics are too long in comics world now. If they ...

The simple answer: we don't know. Yet. This is likely to be part of Coulson's Season 2 story arc. I think Garrett drew it first because he had more samples of GH-325 put into him than Coulson did. I beleive once Coulson saw Garrett's drawing, it triggered it in his mind. I personally think this is what drives people mad (as Coulson alluded to in his ...

There is some significance behind a few of the designations used in the Universes, whilst others appear to be totally random. For example, the original Marvel universe was set in Earth-616. From the Earth-616 Wikipedia Page: A difference of opinion exists regarding the selection of the number 616. In 2005, Alan Moore's son-in-law John Reppion (who is ...

You have two questions here. Is there a bugle in the office and, if so, what does it symbolise. So firstly, what is a bugle? As per Wikipedia?: The bugle is one of the simplest brass instruments, having no valves or other pitch-altering devices. This is the picture from Wikipedia: So now we at least know what we're looking for. To answer the ...

I think Harley's entry is just like Marvel's trend of copying from DC. As in Dark Knight Rises there is a new sidekick (new Robin), similarly Harley can be a future Iron-Man (or a mechanic :P). As per my knowledge and Google search there is no Marvel's Character which matches with the movie's Harley. But as per Wikipedia Ty Simpkins has signed a 3 ...

When the first X-men film was made (and with it, some would argue, the birth of the modern age SuperGenre) there was very little to establish a conflict of interest: in fact quite the opposite. Lee was probably very happy that Marvel Characters were being transferred to the big screen. As time has passed, and Movie Studios began to realize how lucrative ...
