‘Ninja Turtles 2’ Gets WWE Superstar Sheamus as Rocksteady!

‘Ninja Turtles 2’ Gets WWE Superstar Sheamus as Rocksteady!

I agree. Yes, some wrestlers cannot act; Hulk Hogan is awful, and John Cena has shown no real ability to emote. But others have found success to varying degrees. Obviously, the Rock is the best example, but Batista, Edge, and Roddy Piper have all proven themselves at least capable in bit roles. Sheamus definitely has the physicality for the role, and if he can bring some of the personality he shows in his promo work, he should be alright. No one is asking him to carry the film, just to be a role player.

13 Most Epic Car Chases of All Time

13 Most Epic Car Chases of All Time

I think Bullitt should be higher on the list. I'd also replace the chase from The Bourne Identity, and put the last chase from The Bourne Supremacy on the list instead. Damon vs. Urban through the streets of Moscow was simply awesome.

Well, everyone's entitled to their opinions. Yours just happens to be wrong, lol.

Marvel's ‘Spider-Man’ Wants McConaughey as Green Goblin?

I think it could work if he's willing to just be Osborn for a few films, and building up the story before becoming Green Goblin. With that said, as I've written here in the past, the best way to start the Spider-Man film franchise is with a lesser known villain. I think Chameleon would be a great start. They could even add Kraven midway through the film, setting up a potential "Kraven's Last Hunt" film down the line.

‘Batman v Superman’ Will Include Doomsday as a Villain

‘Batman v Superman’ Will Include Doomsday as a Villain

You're being subjective with what you call a "major"site. Fact is, I could have posted 20-30 sites that included Doomsday. The fact is that the character being in the film is not really a spoiler; knowing he's there does not tell us what he's doing (which is not found in the title), how he impacts the film, etc.

CBF hates Smallville. I like it, but I'd rather Welling not show up because it's not Vandervoort as Supergirl.

Is it a spoiler if every website reports "Doomsday" will be in BvS? Not really. It's been speculated on for months. Also, We know Lex, WW, and countless other will be involved, so I don't see how knowing that Doomsday is in play will spoil anything.

If the tats are a deal-breaker for you, that's your issue, not the film's. The film's issue is telling a good story; whether it will remains to be seen.

It will have no impact. Everyone just loves to have knee-jerk reactions regarding these types of things.

It looks fine. Anyone stuck on how Harley or others don't match the books needs to find a life. They don't need to look like them, just embody the spirit of the characters.

No, the Croc look is fine. They went with the more human looking Croc, which I think is the way to go. DC is wise to move away from the garishness of CGI.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: ‘Avengers 2’ Takes $187.6 Million

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: ‘Avengers 2’ Takes $187.6 Million

I disagree. I like that they gave Ultron more of a personality here. It made for a more relatable villain. Spader's c*ckiness and arrogance served the character well, in my opinion. They wanted an Ultron that found humanity to be lacking, something less than himself. That's the character that Spader played. I just wish they didn't cut as much as they did. Hopefully an extended cut will be made for the Blu-Ray, and we can see the extent for the character's contempt for the lesser species.

I don't know if BvS is going to top AOU regarding first week totals, but considering that it's appearing in March, and has all of April to dominate, I wouldn't bet against BvS in the long run.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: ‘Avengers 2’ Takes $187.6 Million

Someone said they thought the film would break $200m for the film, I thought it was too high, and said $175. As far as CBM's reaching their "peak," I see no reason to believe there is a peak. Just look at Marvel without prejudice for a minute. They have a man displaced from his time, an arrogant genius who wraps himself in metal suits, another genius who basically hates himself because of what he becomes when angry, a talking raccoon, and in a few months, a man that communicates with ants. Marvel also has taken us or will take us to the farthest reaches of spaces, Asgard, other realms, etc. How can one feel tired of a genre that has proven to have so many possibilities? Yes, one may dislike the realism found in Cap, but may become overjoyed in the goofiness of GOTG, or other worlds. So, when looking at the variety Marvel has, and sensing that which DC can give us (while at the same time recognizing the possibility one day of a Hellboy 3, plus there will be a Kingsman sequel), I see no reason to listen to the argument that CBM's are becoming stale. The novelty may not be there, but the excitement and entertainment sure are...
