I could somewhat see him in the part... but at the same time I can't stand the kid. He just seems so full of Hollywood BS in every interview I see. He talks about Constantine as if it was a good adaptation. It had Keanu Reeves playing a role set in LA that was originally a blonde snarky British guy in England. Then there was I,Robot and now Transformers. All BS Hollywood movies.
Sure, for typical Hollywood movies, they're good films. Yet looking at the source or the fans, they're not good at all. Sure, Transformers was a 80s kids cartoon, but its fans wanted something reconizable. Instead we got Bay and LeBouf modernizing it and 'turning it up a notch', meanwhile they both toss digs at fans and the old show we liked. Of course then they play CYA and say they didn't mean to call it amateur, they ment the animation in relation to the CGI in the movie. Yeah. These guys are full of total Hollywood BS.
And now we have him cast in Indy 4. I can only imagine the crap that could turn into. We saw how crappy the Star Wars prequels turned into. Then again, I don't see Lucas going hog wild with CGI on an Indy film. Plus I doubt he'll be writing and directing it. Still, there are a number of ways it could go wrong.
Am I jaded? Am I too cynical? Then again, after all these crappy adapations, how can a fan not be?
Anyway, I hope Y the Last Man gets better treatment than any of those. Far from an indie comic, but it still has quite a good and creative story to it. (Vertigo is published by DC AOL Time Warner Comics after all. Marvel is more of an indie published relative to DC/Vertigo.)
Personally, I think Y makes a much better TV show than a movie. Think something like Jericho, a show about survivors after a disaster. Though it seems the higherups at DC AOL Time Warner have shopped it as a movie. Then again, these are the same idiots hell bent on putting Watchmen in thearters as a one shot than releasing it as a cable mini-series or even a series of films.
