Storyline

With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero's actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spider-Man) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

20 steps to make a Marvel movie.
28 January 2017 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

Feel like making a few extra billion dollars without using any effort? Well, you're in luck! Here's my 20 simple steps on making a Marvel movie:

1. Start with fight scenes

2. Find as many random comic book references as possible and cram them into the "story"

3. Add as many characters into the "plot" even if it becomes way too crowded

4. Add fight scenes

5. Make the dialog lol-tastic and quirky playful banter, despite being a "dark" movie

6. Oh wait, the movie is dark again, be sure to make the film go into dramatic mode, where there are no sound effects except for echoed "NOOO!"'s and the swelling music

7. Add fight scenes

8. Throw in a few random chuckle-worthy lines. Make sure the music stops when this happens, letting the audience know that something funny is being said

9. Make the editing schizophrenic and impossible to see anything, especially during the fight scenes. This ensures that viewers cant see anything that's going on during all 5,932 action scenes

10. More fight scenes, plus explosions

11. More comic book references

12. Make it at least 140 minutes in runtime to make it seem more epic

13. Add in yet more characters, this time for the sake of making more spin offs that will make more spin offs that will make more spin offs that will make more spin offs that will...

14. Make the directing as obvious as possible, thus eliminating all suspense or deeper thinking. Remember, your audience is stupid and only want explosions...

15. Add more explosions to more fight scenes

16. Make the villain a goofy wise ass who exchanges quirky banter with the characters instead of making it him/her an intimidating foe

17. Throw in a random love arc. DRAMA!!!!!!!

18. Tell your composer to write the most bland score ever

19. Whatever comic book references and characters you have left, no matter how small or pointless, THROW THEM INTO THE SCRIPT! Just dump the entire bucket into the pool!

20. Finish with more fight scenes.

There! In just 20 brief steps, you'll make a guaranteed billion dollars. If you're a DC executive wondering how to make BvS2 or Justice League reach that big B, just follow this list and you'll be rolling in the green in no time. No need to worry about a story, plot, or screenplay, because that crap takes too much time. Instead, just follow my list to become the next Warren Buffett of quickly-aging cinema. Best of luck to you, gents!
