Jackie Haley's becoming the new go-to guy it seems, with Watchmen under his belt, Human Target and Nightmare on Elm Street coming up...

And I think the ET report on Pattinson is just playing for attention. I really can't see that even remotely being true..

I thought Jackie Earle Haley was great in Watchmen, but I don't see him as the David Niven goen sour/Sinestro type.

Rhe Pattinson thing is probably BS.

How can Haley play Sinestro in Green Lantern Sinestro isn't a midget, how about Haley play one of the Guardians of the Universe like Ganthet. I still say Daniel Day Lewis should be approached and then go to Hugo Weaving if he has time between The Hobbit scenes

Iron Man 2 in I-Max? I'm getting my tickets now

THOR is going nto be sick. I get a little more juiced everytime I read any little snippet about it

Pattinson as Spiderman? It will NEVER happen, mark my words. I'll personally hunt this maggot down and kill him before can spin any sort of web

Sony needs to look at Blomkamp for Spidey. Isn't he the new hot and coming guy.
 

Can't wait to see how Priest looks. This could be a sleeper hit in the making if it's better than Solomon Kane

Good Sinestro casting if you ask me.

Curious about Joe Gatt's role. He's muscular but in a sinewy sort of way & I think he played "Constrictor" in a Heroes short. Not buff enough for Kurse, Ulik, Executioner, Absorbing Man, etc. Maybe one of the Wrecking Crew, a Dark Elf (Malekith) or - I can't imagine they'd use him - Cobra?

Wiseguy, I was thinking the same thing about Sinestro.....I have no doubt that Haley can do the role, but honestly, are they going to have a high chair everywhere the guy goes?  Of course camera angles can be shaped to make him look taller, but still.....

We all want Sinestro to be the bad-ass that he is without the fear of it going wrong. This is one of those that I would really like to see done right because it deserves it.

Iron Man in Imax ... I feel a tingle in my pants.

I don't believe the Robert Patinson rumor, but Twilight was the first thing I thought of when I heard Sony wanted to bring Spidey back to high school.  They want to capitalize on this new craze for teen romance and drama.  I sure as hell hope not.  Although the films have their own bit of drama and character angst, the characters are at least adults.  If they have to bring him to high school, I hope they start with him in 12th grade like the original so he gets out by the second.

On a side note, anyone see Conan last night with his brooding vampire and new Na'vi assisstant.  It was pretty funny.  I can't see it of course since I'm in Toronto, but if you are in the US it's up on Hulu...

His Krueger is lauhably bad. Nightmare on Elm Elm Steet is a laugh fest. Sinestro does not need a squeaky voice or a raspy voice. Sorry Jackie but time to go away again.

 

Robert Patinson as SpiderPig? Wow did this rumor come from a gay dance club?

redhairs99 1/15/2010 7:52:54 AM

I like Haley, but I think Wise is right here.  Haley's just too short to play Sinestro.

The Pattinson rumor doesn't surprise me as Twilight was the first thing to come to mind when they started talking about the direction of the new film, but I doubt (AND HOPE) that it's not true.

 If Green Lantern fails one major reason might be the villian.   Unless your a hardcore DC/Lantern you have to wiki Hector Hammond.  Iron Man was able to get away with Obadiah Stane but that movie was carried by Robert Downney Jr.'s performance.

I don't recall Sinestro ever being a big, beefy dude. I always remembered him as being short, and rather spindley. In which case, Haley might be perfect. After all, the rings are powered by the user's willpower, not their physical size or strength...
