Not to be pulling rank, but I`m pretty sure Violator has been here a lot longer than you Rhuel. He made an honest mistake.

Besides, by time you se the movie you'd have forgotten or won't even care because you'll be there. And if you haven't seen the 6th Sense, he's dead the whole movie.. oops and Keyser Soze is Verbal Kent.. in Usual Suspects oops again.

But seriously, when is the last time we had a movie that surprised the hell out the audience like that?  Can't think of any that good. Come on Hollywood.

With the Hobbit movies somewhat on hold, Marvel is gunning for Guillermo del Toro to direct and Neil Gaiman to write Dr. Strange [link removed]

A Doctor Strange-centric "Defenders" movie that fits into what Marvel is now
calling the “Marvel Cinematic Universe”. SHIELD pulls together a paranormal
special ops team after the Military/SHIELD/NASA made contact with a "Beyonder" (or Celestial, some sort of "magical" trans-dimensional entity like... perhaps an Asgardian?) SHIELD realizes it doesn't have the capabilities to ascertain if this “thing” is a threat or not. Thus sets the premise for the Defenders movie, where the use of occult, fringe science, brains, and brawn are employed to defeat a multi-dimensional and or “secret invasion” cosmic threat to save the day in such a way that Avengers cannot.
The team that SHIELD assembles to defend us from such an invader will be a group of eccentric scientist/academia types culled to form the "Defenders", the oddball counterpoint to the distinguished Avengers team. Project "Defenders" will be the “Twilight Zone” of the new Marvel movie franchises; they want it to be less of an action movie and have more of a creepy thriller type of vibe to it. The Defender operatives will consist of group leader - the brilliant Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange former renowned neurosurgeon turned occultist scholar and “metaphysicist” (character to be loosely based around Aleister Crowley/Terence McKenna eccentric by way of Robert Langdon, Namor McKenzie (Sub-Mariner, the superhuman Jacques-Yves Cousteau by way of Rudolf Steiner, believes he’s the literal Prince of Atlantis) , Dr. Robert Bruce Banner (Hulk, brilliant “omnidisciplinary” scientist, the world’s greatest expert on gamma radiation… need we say more?), Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym (Ant-Man, MIT professor renowned quantum physicist), and his partner Janet Van Dyne(Wasp, one-time student to Pym now associate, extremely bright but introverted Lady Gaga “individualist” type). Themes incorporated into Defenders movie include motifs from the bestselling magical/occult/secret society Dan Brown books, along with themes from the more recent Marvel series involving Secret [link removed] storylines (specifically the newer S.H.I.E.L.D. 2010 comic series). They'll be looking for lean lesser-known actors to play non-super hero type characters, and there are ruminations that Strange may be pushed forward to play a crucial role as catalyst to merge the magical other-dimensional realms like Asgard into the more "realistic" Iron Man universe.

Questions remain about the timeline and release of the Doctor Strange character into the big screen. Will we see Doctor Strange in a smallish part for the upcoming Avengers movie helping to usher in the “magical” component onto the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Or will Strange remain left out of the Avengers universe altogether for now, and another plot device or character be used to infuse the “magical elements” instead of him?... They are determined to bring on Dr. Strange movie post Ant-Man, the question remains will Strange remain side-lined for now? Some at Marvel are extremely hush-hush as plot points, characters as well as want-lists that are still being hashed-out for upcoming films, others think it’s good to gauge public opinion about what properties the public truly cares for and how they can be incorporated to the larger Marvel Movie-verse whilst staying true to the premise of the characters. Some of us like me see the potential and are really pushing for a Doctor Strange-centric Defenders movie but more importantly having Strange play a pivotal if not smallish role in the upcoming Avengers movie.

I agree with you Wiseguy. So what if the ending is spoiled? If you don't want to know, stay away from the article. I've been curious about that ending for months. It's not the one I was expecting, but oh well. This is just as good.

fft5305 4/28/2010 3:39:07 PM

Sorry, ponyboy. I respect the hell out of you but I disagree with you on one thing, and I've seen this on a lot of other sites and forums. I don't care how long someone has been on, it doesn't give them the right to be a complete dick. Not that I'm saying Violator is being one, though I do think he should have posted a spoiler alert. That being said, I tend to read spoilers, and it doesn't spoil the endings for me. Even if I know the content of the Easter Egg, I still think it will be cool to actually see it. And I can't wait to see this one!

Some of you guys are seriously blowing this wayyyy out of proportion. It was an effin mistake obviously. Pony is just trying to say that it was a mistake, and that this spoiler is really not that big a deal for everyone to be turning inside out over. I for one dont like it when people do this intentionally or not either, so i promise it won't happen again. geez. And pony is just lookin out for a homie yo.... no need to take whatever he says out of proportion either. So imma delete that spoiled message, so no one else biches about this BS. Now we can all be friends again! And if anyone else is STILL butthurt about all this, you're a lil too geeked out for ur own good, and i really dont give a FuK.

ponyboy76 4/28/2010 4:19:39 PM

Fft5305. I wasn't saying that just because Violator has been here longer, its okay to be a dick, even though, I don't think he was even being a dick. Like he said, it was a mistake. But you don't see any of the guys that are regularly on here jumping down his throat and saying that he shoud be banned.
 Anyway, dude apologized so nuff said.

oh lord Pee wee herman as a voice talent. I wonder what parents would think of that little trick and how would they explain to their kids about Pee wees arrest record- anyone rember that? that would be an interesting discussion for a parent i bet. - I'm still avoiding this like the plague

Iron man 2- I honestly just cant wait for this one. the expendables is the only other movie I will see in the theater so far this year.

Paul Reubens as Jokey Smurf? Better cast as Spanky Smurf... or Tickle Me Elmo...

Rheul_home 4/29/2010 8:38:46 AM

Ok. First off I dont give a crap about the spoiler. I would have guessed that we were going to see something like this anyway. I just think it was a crappy thing to do to the people that do care. I understand being excited but Robbo asked people to be careful. I dont think violator is a dick but he did do something pretty sh!tty. As for pulling rank, I was a member and contributor to the DCG of Comics2Film since the 90's before they merged with Comicscape/Mania. Just ask Robbo. And that really dosent have anything to do with anything. Maybe I was harsh when I said violator should be banned... I guess I just got excited.

 

PS

 

Pee Wee as Jokey is gonna rock!

I would invent a aparatus that women can use to fasten their strappy sandals so that they would not have to be a contortionist to get them fasten. Then I would shop for a new cute pair of Christen Louboutin to wear.  Then I would be broke again, and life would be good.
