Official Amazing Spider 2 Synopsis and Title (Article) - 2/6/2013 12:30:51 PM

How is it that people are so upset with Jamie Foxx as Electro yet nobody cares that the Mandrian is being played by a Ben Kingsley? If we are trying to be purist here, why not cast an Asian man in the role? Personally I don't care what color Electro is in the movie so long as he doesn't wear that lame looking starfish mask, I'm okay with it.

Has Sony actually stated that Giamatti is the Rhino? Or has the internet been "speculating" and Sony hasn't said yay or nay. Something about this casting has me thinking they might be doing a "Ducart/Miranda Tate" type thing where we think Giamatti will be the Rhino or use the Alter-ego name for a bit, but might actually be Norman Osborne.

Here's a thought. What if Paul Giamantti is Norman Osborne?

Abrams to Direct Star Wars Episode VII (Article) - 1/25/2013 7:41:18 AM

Excellent News. Now please cast John Noble as the Villian!!!

Matthew Vaughn for Star Wars: Episode VII? (Article) - 11/8/2012 8:16:00 AM

I'm cool with Vaughn directing this. Again I think Speilberg would be the obvious (and better choice), but this is fine. Now sign Mark, Carrie and  Harrison and let's start shooting this baby!!!

The Rock for Hercules (Article) - 11/8/2012 8:09:48 AM

I agree with Wiseguy, alot of people get on him about X-Men 3 but personally I give him a muligan on that considering that it was an inherited piece of crap franchise to begin with (The more I watch Singer's first two films the more I think that all three XMen filsm were vastly flawed). Ratner is a decent director that might suprise with this film.

 

Star Wars Episode 7 in 2015 (Article) - 10/30/2012 3:21:33 PM

This has been my dream since 1984. Get Mark and Harrison signed now!!! Get Carrie Fisher on a diet and into fighting shape immediately. No EWOKS, and no JAR JAR BINKS!!!!

Justice League for 2015 (Article) - 10/20/2012 6:14:50 AM

@Wiseguy - Please do not use the XMen and FF films as proof that you can make a JL film. Both FF films sucked, and tell me that all three X-Men films weren't Wolerine Centered films (everybody else regulated to the background). The Avengers was presented and felt like a TEAM movie. Why? Because we are talking about charcters that had a little bit of development before they were all thrown together.

Justice League for 2015 (Article) - 10/19/2012 8:20:20 AM

This is a dumb idea. While I agree with not needing another orign movie for Batman, here are the problems that come from rolling out a Justice League movie ahead of individual films.

  1. WB is betting that Man of Steel will be a hit, and while I hope it is. That's not a given. What if it flops?
  2. WB flopped with Green Lantern, but they are content to let Reyonlds come back for a JL movie?
  3. In 2015 you are going to cram a JL film that will feature Wonder Woman, Flash, a new Batman (Bale aint coming back for this) and along with Superman, and GL and try to have 1) WW, Flash, New Batman try to establish themselves a bit, while having to reestablish GL to fit him more inline with whatever Cavil is going to bring to Superman. The reason why 'Avengers' worked is because with the exception of Mark Ruffalo's Hulk; Evans, RDJ, Sam Jackson, Scarllet Johanson, Liam Helmsworth had already established their characters in the previous films (hell even Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye cameo established what was coming in the Avengers). In Avengers it was all about blending their characters into the fabric of that world. Even at 3 hours you are going to have to have to spend sometime establishing 4 Characters (including whoever the villian will be) and I don't mean in the context of origin, but rather allowing these actors to get bring something new/interesting/fresh to their roles. Doing the model this way almost garauntee's that Wonder Woman is going to be done poorly, whoever is udner the Cowl for Batman is going to just do a bad Bale impression, and we will probably get a Flash that's going to be comic relief (like in the God AWFUL JL script that was floating around.

If WB wants to win the war, instead of a ticket battle, thety would scrap this and adapt the Marvel Model. Give Wonder Woman, and Flash a movie so the actors playing them could create something in the roles to build on. Give GL a reboot (perferably without Ryan Reynolds), and use Batman like the Hulk and save him for the movie, or better yet maybe make Batman the Nick Fury that cameos in enough of the other films so that by the time JL the actor playing him can set himself apart for Keaton/Bale.

A New Batman in 2015? (Article) - 8/29/2012 9:21:32 AM

@parallaxview your comparison of the Original Star Trek picture with GL is in flawed. If you think about it Wrath of Khan was in essense a reboot of Star Trek just with the same iconic cast. Think about it every single film after that in some way reference the film before it, but Wrath never references the 1st film at all. Not in any way shape or form.

As for wanting to keep Ryan Reynolds, what possibly did he bring to that role to make you think that he wasn't one of the collossal problems with the first film. Did Reynolds embody anything of the spirit of the character of Hal Jordan? Again I think that GL missed on ever possible level right down to the riculous decision to make the suit a CGI greation and not stick with the classic design.

The only thing salvagle from the first film is, if Mark Strong (Sinestro) and Angela Basset (Amanda Waller) are still under contract keep them!

Recast everybody else
