    Scheduling. It made most of its money on the basis of advance sales, which were huge thanks to it being seen as a follow-up to Spider-Man: No Way Home and (to a lesser extent) WandaVision.

    Then people actually saw the movie and found it wasn't very good and didn't really have anything to do with those other projects, so the second weekend and onward had much weaker business, but they'd already made their money.

    Thor 4 wasn't really any worse except visually, it just followed a less popular movie than NWH.

          The myth that the MCU version is "whitewashed" comes from people who didn't read comics and thought the racist "they were raised by a shaman and Magneto's wife was a witch" stuff was mentioned in more comics than it was.

          Say what you will about the MCU, they at least made Wanda true to the majority of comics, a white girl who is not Magneto's daughter.

              The worst part of it is how they've managed to successfully bully Marvel Comics into complying with them, which in turn gives them "evidence" to support what they really want, firing Olsen and re-casting MCU Wanda.

              These are people who don't read comics, just Wikipedia articles, so don't know or care that Wanda and Pietro weren't half-gypsy when they were created in the 1960s, don't know or care that it's just something that was imposed on them in the 80s when someone wrote a backstory for Magneto's lost wife. They genuinely think the twins should always have been brown and that they're fixing a mistake. Some people just want to destroy everything good and beautiful in this world.

          Nope. Almost never came up in comics for 20 years after the retcon. Magneto's daughter was on the Avengers for almost all the '80s and '90s and early '00s and you can find maybe a few pages where this is mentioned.

          House of M + X-Men cartoons wasting her as Magneto's daughter (and preventing the Avengers cartoon from using her) created the impression that this retcon was way more important to her history than it was, until the MCU thankfully decided to use her for the things her actual comics stories were about (joins Avengers, falls in love with robot).

        That'd be a good movie too. It's cool that Raimi got to make Spider-Man and Doctor Strange films. I remember him saying he loved Doctor Strange during interviews and the press tour for the first Spider-Man film. How many people can grow up to create films about their favorite characters and have them be well received?

        Or rather he did get interfered with, but what the studio interfered with was stuff around the edges.

        The entire pre-reshoots plot leaked to Reddit in 2021 and the final movie was identical, scene for scene. The reshoots seem to have involved stuff like making America Chavez less annoying and cutting down the role of the other sorcerers and adding different cameos and stuff like that, but the actual story was the one Raimi created with the screenwriter during the 2020 lockdowns.

        It convinced me that the MCU's reshoots are probably mostly pointless, expensive excuse for not fixing the story during the writing stage.

          NTA, but in every single review of the film I've listened to and read, the story has been probably the least acknowledged complaint for anyone. Pretty much every person who's shat on the film I've witnessed has focused almost entirely on erroneous bullshit like which cameos they'd have preferred, how their dopamine addled youtuber brain would have changed the pacing, random plot holes that they invented because they didn't listen to a chunk of dialogue ten minutes prior to the apparent "plot hole," and politicing BS.

            …that isn’t my experience. The story was singled out as a problem in even positive reviews, which praised the visuals and performances but said the story was, at the very least, thin.

            Presumably you don’t agree with the complaints that all the corruption takes place offscreen, Strange doesn’t do much more than react, America Chavez is suddenly able to do stuff because of a pep talk, etc. but the complaints were everywhere.

            Also a chunk of dialogue doesn’t fix a plot hole. I agree some plot holes are insignificant but if we didn’t see a character go through a change, it doesn’t matter that there’s a 5-second explanation for it.

              I haven't seen the movie in over a year by now, but I'll try to respond. Corruption of what; of who?
              >Strange doesn’t do much more than react, America Chavez is suddenly able to do stuff because of a pep talk, etc.
              Strange was taken from an active character (like in the first film & infinity war) to a mostly passive character in MoM to service the growth of the side-characters. I assume this wasn't Raimi's choice, but probably a thinktank of Marvel writers who forced the load on him to save money and time (as otherwise they'd have to have put almost billions into multiple other projects). Can't say I'm fine with it, but I haven't seen people complain about that. Nor have I seen them mention that stuff at all. As you said, different experiences. As for the stuff about Chavez: I'm not excusing it, but - like my last point - it was a cramped film. You can only do so much unless you want to make the story 6 hours long, when you're getting multiple plot points forced into your film simultaneously by studio executives. Raimi didn't write the film, so if you're going to put the blame on anyone put it on Michael Waldron. He's not exactly known to be a good screenwriter.

                Corruption of everyone, really. Mostly Wanda, who becomes a completely different person offscreen and goes back to normal for no good reason (the kids crying is not remotely enough, she’d just say they’ll like her when they realize she’s right), but even the alternate Stranges. The whole movie turns on the power of a book to turn people evil and we never see any of it.

                I think the choice to make Strange a passive character was baked in once they decided Strange should be running away from Wanda the whole movie, but that’s the story Raimi wanted, the story he and the writer replaced would have been different (not necessarily better, there’s a reason the last creative team couldn’t make it work).

                They decided to go for campy fun over characterization, which may have been the right call but it wasn’t fun enough to compensate for the poor character work IMO.

            You're talking to brick walls LMAO. There are people who will say that Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is an inconsistent mess of theme and characterization, is better than MoM. Most people don't actually watch Marvel movies for unique, creative-driven vehicles. They just want to watch sludge content that conforms to their tastes and views exactly, and anything outside of that is considered "bad" regardless of the actual substance of the film.

            Similarly, all this talk about what was reshot, what cameos did and didn't make it in, is meaningless. The actual end product of MoM is the second best MCU movie (after GOTG3) since Infinity War.

                It's totally inconsistent with Peter's characterization. In the movie, Peter's very concerned about killing all the villains, but he's okay with mind raping every civilian on Earth, including his girlfriend? After she explicitly told him not to do that?

                You are looking at this from the perspective of what he should have done within the narrative - but my whole critique is of the narrative itself. It's not about if he should have "let the big cracks in the sky open up"; it's about the fact the writers should not have let the story present this inconsistency.

                did you want Peter to personally ask every single person on Earth if they were ok with wiping their memory when the universe was about to collapse?
                It's a sacrifice because other people's lives aren't affect nearly as much as his, who ends up completely alone.

                My critique is purely on theme and characterization, it's not about what if Peter should have made X choice instead of Y. This movie should have simply been written differently.

                Right, and if they had written it differently you'd be complaining and why-don't-they-justing about something else. You wouldn't be satisfied unless every movie resolves the plot before it even begins and the entire screen time is just the characters staring blankly at the wall. Because your autisms are triggered by fictional characters not being emotionless beings of pure logic and rationality that never ever make mistakes, behave irrationally or take anything but the most optimal course of action. Because your mother was close to menopause when she got pregnant with you and drank heavily throughout the entire pregnancy. Why didn't your dad just wear a condom?

                You're assuming things about me that I haven't said here at all. I'm not asking for Spider Man to be a purely rational, logic machine. There's not a lot logic in a guy getting bitten by a spider, dressing in red and blue, and fighting crime with a magic man who can make portals with israeliteelry. What I want is character development that makes sense. You might be low IQ, so I'll just spell it out: in movies there are these things called themes, and if these themes are inconsistent, it's a problem in the narrative (see: betraying his girlfriend). It's bad writing, and it's not an attack on you to call it out, so stop acting like a sperg at me.

                You can't separate the characterization from the narrative when you're criticizing qualms specific to the narrative. It's dishonest to try to argue the scenario and the character decisions as mutually exclusive, just so you can focus on one side of the argument and intentionally discount the explicit reasoning behind the character's decisions. This is a classic fallacious armchair critic argument from all the way back in the early That Guy With the Glasses and RLM days, and it's constantly still used by those people as many more (like Ralph Sepe, YMS, IHE, etc.). Most logical people are going to see through such obvious dishonesty and bad faith criticism.

                That's my whole point? I'm not here arguing that Peter needed to make a different decision, my point is that the decision itself was created through bad writing. I'm not saying the scenario and the character are exclusive - I'm saying the exact opposite.

                And don't compare me to a bunch of YouTubers, most of those people wouldn't know what a theme in a movie is unless the scriptwriter came onto their channel to tell them.

                Sort of depends on whether his actions make sense based on the information we've been presented.

                You're watching a movie that has shown us that wiping people's memories is not considered something people have to struggle with morally the way they struggle with other things. It's worth saying that you would have preferred seeing the implications of mind-wiping played out, but it's like wishing a love potion story pointed out how truly horrible it would be to give someone a love potion -- you're still looking, 99% of the time, at a logical universe where love potions are considered funny as long as they don't actually lead to sex.

                They're just two different types of stories, and combining them creates friction in the story. In another movie, would I have preferred seeing the implications of mind-wiping? Depends on what kind of story it is, same with the love potion.

                It's kind of like comparing Watchmen to Superman 2's mind-wipe kiss. Watchmen broaches serious themes like foreign policy, the ethics of vigilantism and so on. Superman 2 is a pretty straightforward superhero movie that avoids these sensitive topics. I don't think much about the mind-wipe kiss in Superman 2, because the narrative is demanding that I think about these things. But Spider Man No Way Home is broaching serious topics - like the ethics of killing supervillains (or just sending them to their deaths). So I am thinking about the implications of a mind-wipe much more than I would have otherwise. Does this make sense?

                It's not about logic in the sense that I need these characters to deeply think about the philosophical implications of every single one of their actions. But it is about logic in the sense that I expect consistency when a narrative demands it.

                Oh, sure, it makes sense. Where I think we part company is that I don't think the issues in NWH are really meant to be taken seriously, given it's a type of superhero movie much closer to Superman 2 than Watchmen. The ethical issues are more along the lines of "why doesn't Batman kill the Joker," it's a world so removed from anything real.

                I think the Batman thing is different because it's not usually so woven into the narrative like it is in NWH. The exception would be something like The Dark Knight. But what the TDK gets right is it implicates Batman in Joker's crimes. People become more afraid of the Joker because he goes further than Batman, and Batman has to deal with the fallout from that.

                Because he's the only one who is not a victim of the mind-wipe. The problem is you're looking at it like it's a noble sacrifice when it is not that at all.

                He's not erasing his existence, he's mind raping everyone on earth to forget him. I'm sorry if phrasing it that way makes you uncomfortable, but that is literally what is happening.

                Even if I were to grant that it's the noble ending, it's the same decision he was trying to make at the beginning of the movie - which is what created the mess with the multiverse. So basically, Peter fricks up, almost destroys the universe, then saves the day by... doing exactly the same thing he did at the beginning? Only this time it's good because people's lives are in danger (which he caused)? This isn't good writing.

                erasing people's knowledge that Peter Parker is Spider-Man =/= erasing people's knowledge of Peter Parker.
                The former was a selfish desire to make his life, and of people close to him easier, the latter is him giving up all records and memories of him in order to stop total universal collapse.
                He gave up all the meaningfull memories and relationships he gained through his entire life in order to save them.
                If that's not sacrifice, what is?

                This is a bit of an arbitrary distinction. It's basically saying heroes can make moral decisions that regular people aren't allowed to just because they are heroes.

                I'm not saying that Peter made the mindrape decision in the same context, therefore they are morally equivalent. I mentioned earlier in the thread that I'm not really speaking to morals at all. What I'm saying is that he makes a bad choice, then learns it was bad, and the problems it created are solved by making the same choice. It doesn't really make sense from a writing perspective.

                stop calling it mindrape you fricking moron. it's just a spell. he's not charles xavier reading everyone's sexual fantasies and making cringe jokes about it. it affects reality, not their minds. dr strange deleted their memories through editing fundamental forces in reality. that's the whole catalyst to the villains coming back in the first place, so i dont know how the frick you would have missed that. anyways, you're so morally up in arms over something you can't even concisely explain in simple terms exactly what is wrong with it. you're just b***hing in a totally unrelated thread for 100 posts about some bullshit arbitrary issue you invented completely of your own accord. wasn't there a post hours ago warning the thread about people who do that? shut the frick up, man. it's evident your wrong, because you've been corrected like 60 times and not one person ITT agrees with you. god damn

                Try proofreading your replies before you post them and maybe you wont end up contradicting yourself like you do here:
                >it affects reality, not their minds.
                >dr strange deleted their memories
                Key word: MEMORIES. Do you think the mind is somehow disconnected from the memories? Just because the spell "edits fundamental forces" doesn't change anything about the end result. And just because your squeamish about the word "rape" doesn't mean anything to me. Peter and Strange went into people's brains and changed it without their consent (including his GF, when she explicitly said not to). I can't dumb it down for anymore than that, sorry.

                Also,
                > not one person ITT agrees with you
                Laughable you think I care about this at all. Everyone I've talked to hasn't been able to present a single argument against what I've said. You guys are just sperging about how I've offended you by making you actually think about a movie.

                People are mad because you keep saying Peter hasn’t made a sacrifice in the movie even when people present evidence. Maybe you’re being overly pedantic over the word sacrifice. Peter objectively LOSES things from the wish. His relationship with MJ, his friends, any extended family, his connections to Happy/being Ironboy, his ability to get into a good school, and his High School diploma. However, you’re autistically fixated on this not being a “sacrifice” due to some vague reasoning about narrative that doesn’t address the movie purposefully showing what Peter LOST due to the wish.

                And even if he was going to do that they didn't exactly have time to talk billions of people into a memory wipe because THE SKY WAS LITERALLY BREAKING APART, AN INFINITE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WERE ABOUT TO FLOOD THE UNIVERSE LIKE IT WAS BLACK FRIDAY, AND STRANGE WAS BARELY HOLDING THEM BACK.

                The sky cracking and such only happened because he asked for Strange to mind wipe everyone, and then fricked it up when Strange was mid-spell.

                Look, in the moral universe they set up in the movie clearly mind wiping is not a crime the way it would be if it existed in real life (if… yeah… that’s the ticket).

                It may seem like bullshit that magic authority figures are fine with this kind of spell, but within the movie’s logic it’s not the issue where reasonable people disagree.

                When the writers introduce the topic of morality e.g. through Peter's actions and unwillingness to condemn the villains to death - then the logic of the universe opens itself up to these criticism.

                Making people forget who you exist at all for the sake of protecting them, is not "deeply unsettling." It's a completely selfless act, and it's the direct product of realizing how selfish and immature his actions had been the entire trilogy (especially that specific fricking movie). It also doesn't contradict not wanting to murder anyone, whatsoever. If you want to be a virtue signalling pseud, shit on a character you don't have to intentionally lie about to justify your argument.

                See my comment here:

                You are looking at this from the perspective of what he should have done within the narrative - but my whole critique is of the narrative itself. It's not about if he should have "let the big cracks in the sky open up"; it's about the fact the writers should not have let the story present this inconsistency. [...]
                My critique is purely on theme and characterization, it's not about what if Peter should have made X choice instead of Y. This movie should have simply been written differently.

                You aren't understanding my point.

                Anon, Peter Parker is purposely one of the most morally conflicted characters in fiction. The entire time Spider-Man's existed, he's flip-flopped constantly on just about every issue. The only moral consistency he has ever had, has always been:
                >Help the misunderstood
                >Make sure the least amount of people die as possible, especially if it can be avoided

                This isn't a discussion about morals really. It's about what is good and bad writing. If you write a character to spend an entire movie taking a moral high ground about saving the villains of the story, but then write him as re-writing every human's memory without their consent (and then making this seem like a tragic sacrifice for him, instead of something deeply unsettling), it's just bad writing.

              Yeah, I pretty much agree. People are too willing to bend and twist what is already self-evident to contort others' opinions so that they'll feel more comfortable with either not understanding a piece of art, or disliking it blindly.

      Most directors who are actually good aren't just going to jump into a Marvel movie without certain guarantees of creative freedom. Feige would rather just hire whos because they don't have enough clout/success to demand that freedom. So it allows the MCU to just streamline their production line.

    I think this movie underdelivered. They really can't make Strange a likeable enough character to carry the movie, and the supporting cast was non-existent/super boring. America's inclusion stuck out like a sore thumb.
