    I'd also like to add that the MCU isn't going to collapse without Spider-Man in it.

    Also, since this is REALLY unpopular: Andrew Garfield = best Spider-Man to date.

    I'll do you one better: Little Debbie 5,000X> Hostess

    I wish they'd change the name to Big Deb. Girl is probably like 3 bills now. Maybe even 4.

    Big Deb makes me think of a bodyguard or wrestler than a sweets seller. Also, she's little because of her height. She's barely 3 foot tall

    Didn’t Really like Evangelion.
    (Don’t think this is as unpopular but) Sword Art Online has pretty good music.
    Teen Titans Go! Isn’t that bad. (From a certain perspective)

    I agree that they can continue past Endgame well, and they probably very well will (at least for a while).

    But I think eventually they will decline. It just seems inevitable. Eventually Kevin Feige will leave because of heath problems, or he'll have some sort of falling out with Disney ("creative differences" or something), or he'll just run out of steam, like Spielberg kind of has in recent years, and the quality will decline.

    I do think the X-Men will provide steam for a while (they might save them for a wild card), but I feel like right now is the peak of the MCU.

    Has any movie franchise been able to indefinitely put out solid, profitable movies? Star Trek was able to put themselves on the map again with the first two Abrams movies, but Beyond was another decline. James Bond might count, I'm not very familiar with that series. I just can't imagine the MCU still putting out billion-dollar movies 10-20 years from now.

    Being dead doesn't make you any more respectable than you were in life. If you were a piece of shit while you were alive you're still a piece of shit now that you're dead.

    Basically there's no validity to what I like to call the "Amy Winehouse Effect"

    I'd feel the Mission Impossible movies can be a good contender now.

    Nope, I feel the same. Guardians 3 is going to be the only MCU, movie I watch since I have a soft spot for those guys. I might check out Blade it depends. But overall I agree endgame was the real ending to the MCU now it is one of those TV shows that go on too long like Spongebob or Family Guy. Also all the news I keep hearing about upcoming Marvel movies just turn me off or don't appeal to me

    Marvel has a gift in that no matter how successful their movies are, their comics are basically on life support.

    All comics though. Sad. They were such a big part of my childhood. And still are in my adult life.

    I guess if I was born within the last 10 years I wouldn't be in to them either though.

    Guardians 3 is the main reason I'm fine with the MCU continuing past Endgame. The Guardians moves are probably my favorite modern series of movies, so it's great that it's going to be a trilogy.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Another MCU-related unpopular opinion: I feel like they're going waaay overboard with these Disney+ shows. We already have Loki, Falcon/Bucky, Wanda/Vision, Hawkeye, What If, and (announced today) Mrs. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight. That's nearly ten "coming soon" shows that we have yet to even seen footage from. It doesn't help that they keep announcing them in bunches instead of spacing the reveals out. Are they going to announce five more shows at the next convention?

    I guess it's probably exciting if you know and love these characters (and it's probably silly to complain about too much of something that will likely be a lot of fun), but...maybe they should take it a bit slower? Maybe just greenlight one or two, and focus on those? If they're popular, add a couple more. I really don't intend to watch any of these, but I'd actually be more inclined if it was only one or two. This is way too many, it's overwhelming. Us casual fans need to be eased into this. And I've never felt crowded by the movies, like some people do. Three-a-year is fine. But this many multi-episode shows is too much. I never thought I'd say this...but I actually think Star Wars is doing it better. They've only announced three (non-animated) shows, and they've spaced the reveals out. And we already have footage of the first show.

    As long as at least one of them is better than that Agent Coulson show. That was so bad.

    They put stuff kinda like that on specialty burgers. Not the peanut plant, but some of them have those special sauces that I assume have to come from some sort of plant like a pepper or something
