  1. Fox have the X-teams and characters, plus the Fantastic Four and all related characters (Dr Doom, Galactus, Silver Surfer etc). I've read in multiple places that their licencing deal means that they can have a period of up to 8 years to begin production of a new FF/X-Men film before rights revert back to Marvel unless a deal is made, so the earliest Marvel could even use any of the characters in existing series wouldn't be until well into the 2020's. Universal have Namor and Hulk (for solo films, Marvel can use him for team-up films like Avengers or Thor: Ragnarok). Sony have Spider-Man and all related characters, although have made a deal for Spider-Man to be part of the MCU. Marvel do now have the rights back for Ghost Rider and Blade, so could easily make horror-superhero films too now if they wanted, especially after Doctor Strange helps open up the mystical side of the MCU.
  2. First game: Boxer on the Acorn Electron - proper old school. First game completed: Turrican 2 on the C64 I think - was quite a while ago, whatever game it was! Last game: just off a 5-game winning streak on Hearthstone, with a few levels of One Finger Death Punch earlier.
  3. Would love this. Tagline: "Soaring Like Eagles On Pogo-Sticks!" And Disney do own all the Lucas stuff now, don't they? And this - treat it just like the games and have any character possibly dying each week. Could even end episodes with cliffhangers equivalent to the end of a turn like having a sniper lining up a shot that needs to be made to save a teammate and leaving people hanging until the next week! Also, for a new suggestion: Mafia.

    Marvel Universe Draft - Men in spandex round 2

    I went for annihilation over destruction. I'm totally expecting to go out straight away after going obscure, even if the Annihilators are awesome (unlucky Quasar getting subbed out for Nova).

    A thread where we discuss films

    Check the small print on the leaflet with the code; depending on the blu-ray, you should be able to download from iTunes as well as Flixster with the same code. That was the case with my Ted blu-ray anyway.

    The all new Doctor Who thread. - Geronimo!

    This is what I thought - Freema Agyeman and Karen Gillan both appeared in the show as other characters before becoming companions to the Doctor.

    4.4m for Gaitan is a steal and I'd make him first choice without hesitation, although I have played him primarily on the right as I have Goetze on the left. He's been a vital player for my stupidly-dominant Arsenal side, getting 93 goals and 133 assists in 7 seasons so far.

    Mass Effect 1/2/3

    They should do something similar to Darkspawn Chronicles and let us play through the game as a bad guy like Marauder Shields! Kill off all the main characters and get to be the one to kill Shepard right at the end! Would be fun to be on the other side of that exchange.
  15. I think the fact that the system worked for a grand total of 20 minutes out of 180+ against Everton and QPR shows it doesn't work, or at least requires a hell of a lot of work to be successful. I'm not having a go at Ramsey, he just can't play that position and we had players on the bench who can. Our best results recently have been because we've stretched opposition defences by having two wide players and being able to attack from all directions. The system used today and against Everton keeps us too narrow and limits our approach play, which is the same problem that saw us struggling when we had no fullbacks. I don't think it's a coincidence that our two worst performances recently have mirrored the same issues that plagued us before we went on the winning run.
