How can Marvel regain its movie mojo?

by James Murphy

Quite simple, really. 

1: REHIRE DOWNEY! Money is not the issue, here. He’s minted, loaded etc though yeah it’ll be at least 100million to get him back. Throw in a deal to support his charities and smaller movie projects. Make him cameo in EVERY MARVEL PROJECT. Akin to Stan Lee? And maybe a proper IRON MAN 4. Pepper Potts must return, too. No multiverse laziness, either or AI versions.

2: PLAY DIRTY AGAINST DC! If they can poach James Gunn? YOU can hire: Snyder, Affleck, Cavill, Gadot et al. Do it. 

3: KEEP THE BIG CASTINGS! Harrison Ford is a massive ‘get’ for Marvel. Well done. But don’t waste him. He is playing an evil version of his Jack Ryan/ AIR FORCE ONE President character. So have him face off against Tony Stark and watch the sparks fly! Same goes for directors. Could SPIELBERG maybe do a Marvel movie? It’s possible. Scorsese less likely but you never know..

4: FOCUS ON CHARACTER AND PLOT: No more political lectures or identity obsession / subversion. People want fun, immersive, escapist storytelling. Give it to them. ‘YOU GOTTA DO BETTER!’. Etc.

5: DON’T NEGLECT ASSETS: You can now have X MEN meeting Fantastic 4, Spider-Man etc. Why are you WAITING SO LONG? Bit odd. That is why Marvel/Disney face decline. They bought stuff they failed to USE. Quite simple. Same goes for actors. Disgraceful underuse of BRIE LARSON! Deploy her better.

They are doing some of this, rumour has it. Follow the formula. Win again!
