Am I the only one who feels this way?
I can't shed the worry that I've actually posted this thought before, but a search didn't reveal it, so: Am I the only one who's more interested in the next X-Men movie than the next Marvel movie? Obviously, it's hard to judge a movie by its trailer, but based on what I've seen, neither the new Captain America nor Guardians of the Galaxy looks like it'll be up my alley, though at the moment I plan to see both. Meanwhile, I really enjoyed X-Men: First Class and I love stories about time travel, especially ones that follow events in both time periods. (Once again I point to Frequency as the closest to perfection of any movie about time travel I've ever seen.) So I find myself, even though I disliked X-Men 3 and deliberately avoided the Wolverine movies, much more interested in Days of Future Past than anything Marvel's got lined up this year. (Though what I'm really anticipating is the Black Widow movie, but that's still a good couple of years off.)
