The same can't be said about Big Hero 6. Not sure how to get around that. Most people don't think of Big Hero 6 as a Marvel superhero team but it undeniably is... it just is much more famous for being an animated Disney film than for the two comic miniseries that the film was based on.
My brain has totally erased every trace of those abominations.
The characters that survived are all the ones you would have expected to die. And all the ones that died are new and have lots of cash left in their udders for Disney to milk out of them, plus long contracts already signed going in to the future. There's no way they can just leave things like that. So... I imagine... and would bet large amounts of money that I'm right... that in Avengers 4 we will see Captain Marvel (& Adam Warlock?) come to Earth to assist the surviving members of the Avengers, and that those surviving members will do something to reverse what happened at the end of Avengers 3, very likely including something that will require the Avenger whom Dr. Strange told "it was the only way" to sacrifice himself.
Plus I find Ruffalo's Banner to be so whiny and unconvincing and he gets worse in every movie. I wish they had managed to keep Norton. And Wakanda is stupid I hope that the next movie is not set there and I can just forget about it and skip the inevitable Black Panther sequel. And the stuff is space is ridiculous in terms of scale and physics and so on but... eh whatever.. I know it's just a comic book movie. I enjoyed it. I'll probably go see it again on IMAX.

(I am curious if people would get more mad over this or over people confusing star wars with star trek...)
But yeah, aside from those everything else before the MCU was pretty crap.
and... I know I'm in the minority here, but I actually think Howard the Duck is underrated. If you don't take it seriously (and why would you?) it's actually pretty funny.
but then X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) were both way better and way more successful than Blade. After those films made so much money that's when we started heading toward the current state of Hollywood where most of the money movies make every year comes from comic book movies. And this is because those movies were so well done compared to anything that came before or around the same time.
The sequels X2 and Spider-Man 2 are, IMO, two of the best comic book movies ever made. But... there were also some stinkers from that era.
