‘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.

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

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

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.

Female ‘Thor’ Revealed, Will It Affect the Marvel Movies?

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.

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

I enjoyed the film immensely. I figured it would make about $175m, but it exceeded those expectations. Regarding the ridiculousness of DC vs. Marvel films and their profits, everyone should just shut up. Both companies make big bank on their films. Assuming DC can achieve the same level of success Marvel has, it will be able to spread itself out, and give us options similar to what Marvel has given. Indeed, the success of AOU isn't about Marvel vs. DC, but rather shutting up the people who feel that the genre is tiring or nearing its end. The people will see films if they find them interesting, and this weekend proves that the masses are still enthralled with these types of tales...

Trank better pull it together, otherwise he won't be directing much of anything.
