Pretty much what I expected. Can't expect too much seriousness with when a talking raccoon is involved.
@superman81 Just out of curiosity, how do you know Gadot has the ability?
She can change her look, but it won't matter if she can't act. I kind of hope she does something with substance beforehand (not FF7; something where she has to act and emote throughout). Remember, this is not just about BvS; if she fails, it basically throws any WW film out the window. Here's hoping she has talent beyond her looks.
Everything is awesome...
Another story for the fanbitches to whine about...
I think they're using GOTG for the advancement of the Phase 3 plot involving Thanos (who won't be fighting in this film; to have him get defeated would devalue the character for A3, and would therefore be a colossal blunder).
Let's just hope they leave the needle marks off...
(patiently waiting for the hate...)

@thedude1 I doubt it will matter. Many people have similar voices.

@thedude1 Lol. Like him having two jobs at once could be construed as wrong? Please...

@thedude1 Why not? John Rhys-Davies played both Gimli and Treebeard in LOTR. It's a smart, cost saving move.

I'm gonna wait to give my opinion until contracts are signed, and actors/actresses are announced.
@themoviefanatic So far in this conversation, you've said you cannot take Eisenberg seriously, that he is miscast, and that you wanted either Strong or Cranston in the role. But when pressed to give an explanation as to why you don't take him seriously or why he's miscast without saying you wanted Strong or Cranston in the role, you have not responded with one clear piece of evidence. I'm not saying that you have to like Eisenberg in the role, or even like the choice of him being there. All I want to hear is a valid reason, something with substance. Tell me why you don't take him seriously, or why he's miscast. Don't tell me that you wanted someone else in the role. I don't care about that. Anyways, it is apparent to me that you have no basis for saying what your saying, and only saying so because you thought one of two other people were going to get the part, and since they didn't, you're upset. Get over it.
@themoviefanatic Well, yeah, he can. All of his awards and nominations for The Social Network kind of allow me to take him seriously. And his ability to do comedy should be taken seriously, because it is harder to pull off than drama in some ways. So, can you actually give an example of something Eisenberg does that makes you not take him seriously, or are you just incapable of articulating your argument?
@themoviefanatic What about those previous roles make you not take him seriously? Give an example of something he does that you don't like, if you can.
@thedude1 His mentality helped to portray that, not his physical presence. He did nothing in that film to make you think, "wow, that guy's a powerhouse." He's just very good at the mental aspect of his job, making believable characters. There is no reason to think that Eisenberg cannot do the same, skinny or otherwise. It's about the psychology of the role, not the physicality.
@thedude1 When did Spacey ever look physically intimidating? He wasn't in Seven, nor The Usual Suspects. In both films, it was his mental presence that provided the danger.

And no on Rosenbaum. He never got bigger physically. His mentality grew powerfully, which is probably why you think the way you do.
@thedude1 When? When Spacey played him? Rosenbaum? Shea? I might give you Hackman, but no one else, and yet they were effective in their roles to varying degrees. Again, it's not the physicality but the mentality that's important here, and if Eisenberg can show a certain edge in that realm, then he'll be fine.
@thedude1 You're physical perception of Eisenberg as Luthor is the problem. You need to remember that it isn't his body, but his mind that is the weapon.
