Really? Then why the hell was everyone so gung ho about Armie Hammer being Superman if the news doesn't concern you? And this contradicts how everyone felt about Brandon Routh. When Superman Returns came out, he was called Superboy by fans because he was young at the time. Yet, you want Hammer to get the role despite his age? *sigh* Well, if the 35-40 rumor is true, I am glad. I want to see an older Superman in the part. 

I can definitely see Wesley Snipes playing Blade again. I hope he gets to. 

The Crow? Just as well. I think rebooting this would be like when they tried to make it a TV show. Not so good, hm?

Snipes?  Isn't he in Federal-pound-me-in-the-a$$ prison for tax evasion?

Wahlberg as Daredevil?  Nooooooooo.  He'd be perfect for a Planet of the Apes movie....oh...wait....

Monkeyfoot I think you should give TWD a try when it premiers.  It isnt just another zombie story...the title actually refers to the living people.  It is a very dramatic journey of a group of survivors and the ugliness that mankind can become after an event like this.  Yes there will be zombies and yes they will be at times trying to evade them.

Personally I can wait until they find the town with the Rick/Michonne/Phillip the Governor storyline...unfortunately that wont happen until at least season 3 I am sure.

"no one can top brandon lees performance of the crow"... At first I agree whole heartedly Brandon Lee was perfect... But then again everyone said the same thing about Jack Nicholson's Joker.

So some might argue which Joker is better, but the fact is they were both great performances for different reasons. So if someone is going to tackle The Crow, they need to realize they cant go at it like Brandon Lee and expect to beat him, they need an all new approach.

Brandon Lee was perfect for that vision of The Crow. Reimagined it could be cool but not Wahlberg...someone else...he's too bulky for Daredevil, but he would be good as Winter Solder if they went that route

Snipes will not get a chance to make good on the Blade franchise, they'll go with someone else who they feel represents the audience at this point.

 Monkeyfoot you hairy beast, I am not a comic book reader but I recently picked up the first 5 hardcover books (each book has 12 issues) of The Walking Dead and I can tell you my friend that it is great with all kinds of awesome combined.  I am completely hooked with it and I'm anxiously awaiting next Tuesday when Book 6 gets released.  Now as far as the show I can't comment on it but if its anything like the book I guarantee it will be great and the best new show of this TV season, which by the way as been very disappointing in my opinion. I give The Walking Dead the Hanso Seal of Approval and would recommend if you get a chance to at least give the first 12 issues a look. 

 

Jon Hamm as Superman FTW!  It is SuperMAN not SuperLADY and that is a scientific fact!

Bring back Wesley for another Blade film, let Goyer write it but don't let him near the director's chair, and bring in Norrington to direct that since the first Blade film still kicks ass. Use the original storyline they were supposed to use for Blade: Trinity about the vampire apocalypse. Vampires ruling the humans and enslaving them in concentration-like camps. Blade is the only one left on the outside that is still fighting the vamps. I thought it could have been really awesome. Sort of Omega Manish, except with vampires instead of mutants.

I am happy The Crow is a no go. The original is my all-time favorite film. But I wouldn't have minded Luke Goss as the new Crow. I thought he was awesome in Hellboy II as Prince Nuada. And I love his delivery. I could see him delivering religious lines like in the original Crow novel.

For some reason, I always wanted Cole Hauser as Daredevil. I think he could pull it off. As Johns in Pitch Black, he had a humanity to him but he was still a dark complex individual with baggage. I think that kind of acting would work well for Daredevil.

F#ck Norrington.  You can't "respect" the source material and "move beyond" it at the same time.  Since a faithful adaptation of the Crow has yet to happen (the 1994 attempt was a great film, but a flawed adaptation), I don't want to see any bull$hit "interpretations" from pretentious hack directors.  Until somebody is ready to give the graphic novel it's due in a frame-by-frame adaptation the Crow needs to be left alone.  Thank god someone had the sense to reject his crappy script and send him packing.

Do any of these asshats take any time to consider what the FANS OF THE COMIC want?  Isn't that who these movies are directed at?

Calibur, Hobbs etc.  Have you guys even read The Crow?  Lee was good for what was asked of him, but that film is not the end-all-be-all of what an adaptation of the comic series should be.  It hit a lot of the right notes, and is a beautiful film in it's own right, but Lee is no more the totality or the epitome of The Crow, than Heath Ledger is of the Joker.    He did a great job, but so much was changed for the film that it really isn't the same story as what appeared in the books.  If someone were to take the Rodriguez or Snyder approach, it would be a very different and ultimately more effective film.  Nobody's bothered to take the material seriously enough to adapt it without uneccessery alteration.

 

Samurai, I'd never considered Wahlberg as DD, but now that you mention it it's a pretty kick ass suggestion.
