            Right…Let’s compare the GotG ripoff to the Marvel solo films…

            LOL and GotG it’s not a solo film, what’s next? Denying Trump as YOUR PRESIDENT? LEAVE baby

          • Axxell

            SS is not a solo film, either, so why compare it to Hulk?

            My guess is because it gets owned by GotG…Actually yeah, that’s it…

            Marvel >>> DC

          • Napi
