They have the rights to the Super Skrull. Regular run-of-the-mill Skrulls are still likely allowed with MCU according to some of Feige's statements in the past.Correct -- Fox has the rights to the Skrulls.
Well the Chitauri were shapeshifters too. The debuted in The Ultimates (which the first Avengers film was based on imo) and were never really saw their true form like the movie did. Basically the MCU needed a cannon fodder enemy and they weren't going to waste the Skrulls on that so instead they used the "discount" Skrulls from the Ultimate universe.They have the rights to the Super Skrull.

As for why they wouldn't have used them... the Avengers story would've had to be very different if the alien invaders were also shape shifters--and if they aren't gonna shift shapes, why even bother with Skrulls? Just because they're little green men? Saw someone elsewhere say they were gonna be used in GOTG in place of the Sakaraans, but that also seems pointless because again shapeshifting wouldn't naturally fit into the story and, even more problematic, they'd be the henchmen of a Kree!
You can't trust IMDB.According to IMDB Keanu Reeves,Gary Sinise were the studio's preferred choices and Dougray Scott was cast in the role but dropped out. Honestly I don't think any of those choices would've been great, this role was made for Jackman and I'm glad his stuck around for so long which rarely happens.
Yeah, we know she is Jaina SkywalkerVery true... shortly after her casting was announced, Daisy Ridley was listed as "Jaina Solo" on IMDb. Technically, it's like a wiki...anyone can submit a credit, but like those who monitor wiki articles to keep out the rabble, there are measures to fix or eliminate false credits.
I agree that it's unlikely that we'll see a big cross over with Agents of SHIELD or Daredevil, but it doesn't mean it wouldn't be cool or that I think it's a bad idea. I'm frankly surprised we haven't seen more talk of them bringing SHIELD back to the big screen as there is a LOT they could still do with them.TBTH, I don't think character like Aunt May, Pepper Potts, etc. belong in the "BIG Ensemble" movies. They should be saved for said characters solo outing only. Because lets face it, there's already a lot going on with all the existing numerous characters. Then you go and add Uncle Tom for GP... :\
Also, the happening on TV don't mean jack when it comes to the MCU. That's obvious. And just because Warlock was important in the Comics, doesn't mean he is in teh MCU. If there's one thing I've learned, is to not expect it to go down as it did in the Comics.
Don't tell me you don't want to see a big superhero vs villain throwdown? You've seen the posters... I don't think every movie should do this, but what better time than Infinity War? Go ALL IN and destroy people's eyes for a couple hours and then put the universe back in it's place. They will NEVER have a better time to do it.I hope they don't get to big, cast wise for this. It's already daunting enough to track 12-14 heroes, and then expect a villain to do anything worthwhile. I couldn't possibly imagine adding the cast of several other movies into just one Movie.
When a fella is feeling overwhelmed in a cosmic battle he could use a symbiotic palTruthfully, I feel he'd just get lost in Infinity War. This should be meant for the BIG guns. And I sure as heck don't want a yet unused Marvel character to get the Axe/pushed aside just so they can use Spidey.
I have more interest in seeing Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, Nova, and several others. Long before I care to see another Spider-Man movie. I've had my fill of him for the time being, honestly. Don't get me wrong, I like him and do want to see him again.
Just not at the sake of something else.
While I don't know for sure what will happen, the idea that Fantastic Four might revert back to Marvel is probably likely & has probably cost Fox more to keep (Over the course of 4 FF movies including the never released 90s version)I saw an interview with the Russo brothers talking about the writing of "Civil War". They said they knew discussions were happening to bring Spidey home, so while they were working over ideas with the writers, they said they started the idea with the script including Spider-Man from day one. Their reasoning sounds like mumbo-jumbo, but in business-speak, it makes sense. What they intended was to never have a feasible script without Spidey, because they didn't want Sony to balk and say "Oh, look, see, you have this second script and it proves you don't need Spider-Man. We'll just keep him for ourselves." They didn't want to give Sony any excuses.
Now, it's probably a long-shot, what with talk coming from Fox, but it's possible they're doing the same thing with "Infinity War": Include the Fantastic Four, include mutants, throw 'em all in the script on the idea that Marvel's going to get them back before they're needed for the movie.
Who knows what discussions are going on behind the scenes. But that would definitely bulk up the character-count to levels they've already been discussing, wouldn't it?
I agree that this would be the way to go with the Netflix "Street Level" heroes. This would be a fun way to include them without including them in the movie and making it even more to follow. It's hard to imagine Daredevil or Iron Fist kicking Thanos into submission... it's hard enough to imagine Hawkeye or Black Widow surviving a fight like this.Re. Netflix characters (Daredevil, Luke Cage etc), I think they should release a Netflix miniseries concurrent with Infinity War that shows you what these 'street level' characters are up to whilst all the Infinity War stuff is going down. Throw in the odd a-list guest star as an extra pull. It would be like the tie-in comics they release with the big crossover events.
I don't remember from back in the 70's-90's when I read Marvel if Daredevil being blind was publicly known, and I'm not following any of the movies or shows to know if it is known today, but I do read the occasional thread to see what the topics are about and that was an interesting point to acknowledge. That could perhaps be the solution to how Mysterio was caught. Maybe he was causing all sorts of trouble but he gets caught because DD doesn't fall for his illusions, and this causes Mysterio to freak out, maybe have a breakdown and doubt himself. But your point could very well be the conclusion to a story that now needs to be written backwards to have an interesting tale.I feel like Mysterio would be outmatched, since there is no way Daredevil could fall for his illusions.
There is a rumor that Ike might take a position in the trump administration. No one knows if it will happen, but if it does Marvel might start inteweving their TV & movies properties together if Ike is no longer 100% at Marvel.They won't unless Marvel's Movie and TV departments start playing nice with each other. Funny how they could get Spider-Man but the TV MCU is walled off ATM.
