Again, what the Tomb Raider sequel needs is to be more grand in scope (which can be done even with a lower budget), and a more risk-taking, well written script. Trying to be like MCU movies would just look like desperation, and people don't like wannabes.

Besides, why do people still think the 2018 movie took itself too serious? The movie and Lara herself can be quite funny when they want, even when they reach Yamatai. They just aren't throwing away jokes every 5 minutes.

I don't hate it I just feel nothing from it.
True no ones like when they try to copy the MCU look at the ashes of the Dark Universe.

Yeah I think it's because of the end when Lara say goodbye to her father but what will they want her to say to him in this situation ? ''Don't worry you won't suffer too long '' ?

What's wrong for a movie to take himself a little seriously ?

I was thinking, what If the director was Cate Shortland ?
She's working on the Black Widow movie.

Wait you donít want an MCU movie but an MCU director on it?

Lol.

Also Cate would be a bad choice, she got picked because of her post NAZI war erotic drama.

Because she made a movie filled with action and dual guns combats. Oh I didn't know that.

It's why she was hired LOL. Scar Jo picked her because it matches with the Black Widow character who was trained by bad guys and after committing violent crimes (Why theres red in her ledger) changes sides and it's an erotic drama too which is right up Scar Jo's alley as that's what made her famous with Lost In Translation

You couldn't have Vikander running around wearing that in the "gritty" and "not like a Marvel movie please" film everybody here wants.

I mean the 2018 team did an amazing job of re-creating Lara's costume in the game, accurate but not in Cosplay territory.

I think they nailed the realistic look at the end, it's just a pity they kept it for the sequel and didn't do the Batman begins style origin story half and half!



The braid definitely works in Vikanders favour. I'd say with a sequel and Vikander with more power she'll make choices that suit her as an actor in both story, appearance etc.

No, Black Widow still looks very much like Black Widow. Just giving dual holsters and possibly a backpack is not enough to make a character look like Lara, IMO.
