Unless it's a really small low-key Cop story (that feels like a actual 70s cop thriller) this is a bad idea. Nakatomi was supposed to have been a situation he'd never been in before, so it would totally cheapen it to make a big action prequel where he's a superhero.
I think there are enough actors out there that Marvel doesn't have to recycle the same ones for new characters. But TV shows do it all the time, if someone comes in for a small role and the producers really like them. As long as the characters are different enough (especially in appearance), it shouldn't be an issue.
I never felt like Prometheus needed a sequel, and that the ending being kind of ambiguous actually smartly explored humanity's insatiable quest for answers (even when it kills us). That said, if it's as good as the first one I'll be interested to see where Scott takes this story!
Ruby Rose is the sh*t!
These movies are so good. Maybe the best contemporary example of a reboot/remake done right.
You would think so given the weak North American numbers, but it's actually a mega hit in China.
This sounds like an awesome direction to take the franchise. Sort of a more real-world Winter Soldier.
I'd rather see her in this than in the actual Captain Marvel movie. All she has to do here is look good.
Much more interesting than Snyder!
If Furious 7 was any indication, she's as wooden as a back porch. I can't see Marvel going for someone like that.
Part of me doesn't think it's worth making a movie if he's not into it, but another part of me respects that he cares about the fans enough to feel an obligation to finish the story. Thing is, they don't REALLY need Perlman to put on the makeup. With tech now, couldn't they just have a body double do the acting and have Perlman mocap the facial movements and the do the lines and plug his face in? Maybe it would take the charm out. The bigger issue here is the studio not seeing a market for the movie. Comic book movies are arguably bigger now than they were when the first two were released, but it's always a gamble if you're not Marvel. I wonder, though, if there's any chance the studio (whoever it is that owns the rights) would release the film rights or at least offer to co-finance with Del Toro and a crowd-funding campaign (a la Veronica Mars). But the budget on this might be enough as to render crowd-funding impossible.
Hugh Laurie could be great as JJJ.
If Marvel's Spider-Man is just a kid, it make sense that his costume would look homemade, something like this (at least, before he meets Tony Stark). The previous Spider-Man films never did a great job explaining how he got such a professional, high-res suit.
That Green Lantern joke is fantastic.
I'm more excited for this than BvS. Interesting trailer.
I loved his "red capes are coming" bit. But it's really the only part of this trailer that looks like any of the actors are having any fun. I'm digging Affleck and Irons, but the movie looks so goddamned serious.
I'm really surprised they didn't go with Wolverine as a Horseman. He's been one in the comics, and that would give them a chance to do something new with their most popular character. But maybe Jackman is sitting this one out completely. He's been pretty coy on future involvement in the films other than Wolverine 3.
I feel like a kid again. That opening shot with the crashed Star Destroyer, the reveal of the chrome trooper, the John Williams score, the final shot with Han & Chewie! BEST TIME TO BE ALIVE!
All of this is great news.
