    question

    in iron man nick fury shows up in a post endcredits scene to speak with ony stark about the avengers inniative

    while in the incredible hulk remake tonys stark shows up at the end of the movie in a similer post end credits scene



    since those post end creidts scens are pretty clear clues to all the marvel movies existing in a single shared movie continuity

    where do the other movies fall int place at when it comes to the x-men quadrology the spiderman trilogy the two punisher movies daredevil and ghost rider?


    seriously asa fan i ahve not been this exited since the dc comics animated continuity was put together

    The only ones that count are Iron Man and the last Hulk movie.

    ^as well as the upcoming Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, and Avengers movies. THe only ones that have a shared universe are the ones produced by Marvel Studios.

    So far, quality wise, they're two for two. Can't wait to have the movie rights of their other properties revert back to them.

    This is correct. About 1-2 decades ago, Marvel was facing bankruptcy, and so it sold a few movie licenses (AKA their top licenses) for dirt cheap. These include X-Men, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Punisher, and a few more. Most of these licenses were purchased for terms which basically forbade Marvel to have any creative input (the recent X-Men movies come to mind).

    At that time, some of the licenses were really obscure and couldn't find a buyer. Iron Man, Thor, Ant Man, etc. Nobody wanted those licenses. Fast forward to today, and Marvel is a big multi-billion dollar partner with Disney, so they're going to make the best with the franchises they still control. Their other franchises will never "revert" back to Marvel unless they go a period of "X" number of years (I don't know the number) without producing a movie. That's why they're cranking out so many X-Men and Spider-Man movies.

    Wasn't the recent Punisher & Ghost Rider film out out by Marvel? I'd assume they are in the same universe as Iron Man & Hulk if Marvel put them out.

    I think that's Lionsgate.

    I think Sony owns Spiderman and 20th Century Fox owns X-Men.

    It's anything Avengers related that Marvel produces wit their own studios.

    Fox has more than just X-men. They've also got the FF, Daredevil, and Elecktra. And since Marvel was bought by Disney they've been rebooting FF and Daredevil.

    I think when regarding the upcoming Deadpool movie, where he should be displayed as his comics counterpart, which collides with his appearance in Wolverine Origins, they are separate.

    I guess you connect all of the Marvel flicks somehow if you really tried.

    Why you'd want to is another question completely.

    And I think that Deadpool should never pollute a movie theatre with his unclean presence.
