    "It is a bit of a gamble in assuming the superhero market won't dry up."

    The zest for MCU films may indeed wane to a point where they will be doing far less movies per year, but there will probably always be a market for kids in the way of merchandise and cartoons. That said, there is a plethora of stories and characters that can still be told from the vast storehouse of Marvel Comics.

    I think the rise of the MCU has brought in a large number of NEW fans who had never read the comics, but grew up with the cartoons, thus have a lust for more films. The DCEU may not find its footing, but I hope that the MCU continues to give us more great films.

    I may be in my 50s now, but I'm living out a childhood fantasy come true with the MCU.

Hi again, Torch!

I feel the same way about the MCU. Even characters that I thought would be tough to bring to the screen have been far better than I expected. Films like Thor (I liked all of them, even Dark World), Ant Man, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy have all been done better than I expected.

Marvel Studios has been on such a long roll that I start to get worried. How long can they last? What happens when they have to recast? That's another thing. Most of the casting choices have been terrific. If only we could get as lucky with Doom as Thor did when they cast Tom Hiddleston as Loki. I hope they nail it with the Fantastic Four cast too. But cart before horse, etc. Let's hope this deal goes through this time.
