Películas de Marvel fuera del MCU: Una lista completa

Marvel Studios ha producido numerosas películas que forman parte del exitoso Universo Cinematográfico de Marvel (MCU). Sin embargo, mucho antes de su surgimiento, otras películas adaptaron a los famosos personajes de Marvel Comics. Estas películas no pertenecientes al MCU tienen un historial desigual, a veces sin capturar la magia de los cómics. Después del fracaso de «Howard the Duck», Marvel enfrentó la bancarrota y vendió los derechos cinematográficos de sus personajes más conocidos, como X-Men y The Fantastic Four, a otros estudios de producción.

La primera aparición de Captain America en la pantalla

No mucho antes de que Marvel Comics se convirtiera en Timely Comics, se lanzó en 1944 el serial cinematográfico de Captain America producido por Republic. La película sigue al fiscal del distrito Grant Gardner, en lugar del más conocido Steve Rogers. Aunque la película es campy y de bajo presupuesto, sigue siendo entretenida y un recordatorio del progreso de los superhéroes a lo largo de los años.

One of the most successful non-MCU Marvel outings was the 1977 The Incredible Hulk TV show, starring Bill Bixby as David Banner and Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk. Banner’s tragic story starts with a one-hour movie called The Incredible Hulk, followed by the more comedic The Return of The Incredible Hulk, 1988’s The Incredible Hulk Returns (which also featured the first live-action version of Thor), 1989’s The Trial of The Incredible Hulk, and 1990’s tragic finale, The Death of The Incredible Hulk.

Although Spider-Man’s earliest non-MCU Marvel movies are now mainly the target of memes, they were well-received at the time of their original release. Columbia Pictures demonstrated how visually stunning the young hero could be on the big screen in 1977 with practical effects and a real stunt-person web-slinging and wall-crawling. Spider-Man’s first trilogy may not look serious by modern standards, but it holds up as a somewhat accurate adaptation of the tone of the comics from the silver and bronze ages of Marvel Comics.

El comienzo de los X-Men en la pantalla grande

Toei’s Spider-Man released in 1978 concurrently with a popular TV show at the time. Shinji Tōdō played Takuya Yamashiro, a racer who came into contact with an alien spaceship called the Marveller. Garia, the last survivor of Planet Spider, gives Takuya his powers through a blood transfusion. Toei’s Spider-Man has almost nothing to do with Marvel Comics’ original hero, but that doesn’t mean the story isn’t weirdly enjoyable, regardless.

Dr. Strange was a 1978 feature-length TV pilot for CBS starring Peter Hooten that served as an origin story for the Sorcerer Supreme in a story that unfortunately never saw the full light of day. Unlike the contemporary series The Incredible Hulk, and despite Stan Lee’s involvement as a consultant, Dr. Strange wasn’t picked up by CBS. The non-MCU Marvel movie had the potential to be a cheesy but fun take on the Sorcerer Supreme.

El sorprendente éxito de Blade

Blade released in 1998, directed by Stephen Norrington and starring Wesley Snipes in the titular role. Blade follows a Dhampir who fights vampires and is part of Marvel’s important pre-MCU wave of movies that paved the way for future projects. Blade struck a note with critics and audiences, spawned two sequels, and gave superhero movies a boost in reputation.

20th Century Fox first obtained the rights to Marvel Comics’ X-Men in 1994 and held them until 2019. The original X-Men trilogy includes 2000’s X-Men, 2003’s X2, and 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. Fox’s X-Men franchise was soft-rebooted in 2011 with X-Men: First Class. While some of Fox’s X-Men films suffered critically, 2016’s Deadpool, 2017’s Logan, and 2018’s Deadpool 2 became the most acclaimed movies in the X-Men franchise, dealing with darker tones and more mature content.

El icónico Spider-Man de Sam Raimi

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man was the first installment in his beloved trilogy, kicking off in 2002 and spawning two sequels in 2004 and 2007. Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy has been credited for redefining the modern superhero genre. A fourth movie was canceled, and the Spider-Man storyline has since been rebooted twice, including for the MCU with Tom Holland as Spider-Man.

Directed by Ang Lee and starring Eric Bana, Hulk explored the origins of Bruce Banner. Hulk received mixed reviews but has received retrospective praise from critics for its artistic differences from other superhero movies. It has also recently been praised for Lee’s thoughtful attempts to deal with Banner’s issues instead of being a series of action set pieces.
