Junior Roberts wrote a comment about the news item Ant-Man to Possibly Shoot This Year
@incmob I kinda gotta agree with you. DOn't get me wrong, I LOVED The Avengers movie and think adding more characters (in a sensible way) is great, but Ant-Man is gonna be VERY hard to translate to film in an interesting way that doesn't make it look cheesy. They have to focus more on the man behind the helmet, Pym, than his ability to not look cheesy.

Let's be real... the first thing people are gonna think of is Honey I Shrunk The Kids... and that was the definition of a cheesy movie. If this movie doesn't have a KILLER story and character dev behind, its gonna end up just like Green Lantern. Great graphics. Little of everything else.
@skywise I completely agree. If they ever wanna revisit Venom as a villain for this new Spidey franchise, they have to make him the only villain. And do his story right. I think Eddie Brock would have to be introduced in a prior film before he is introduced as Venom in another. That would be great.

I think the only reason they did Sandman was for graphics. Graphically, he was amazing but as you said, never a great villain, especially for a movie.

Reminds me of my high school days growing up in Brooklyn. Might check this film out.

Funny.
Junior Roberts gave this a Thumbs Up
@skywise Oh that?!?! LOL, I totally forgot about that. True. Instead, they decided to go the more revenue route and opt for Venom, Sandman and return of Goblin. That movie was so incredibly bad. Comedy, story, character dev, dialogue... EVERYTHING.
If Joss Whedon does not return to Avengers 2 as director and write, Marvel/Disney is in trouble. They MUST have him return. It is imperative to that film's success because I can't see another director to make a film as big as Avengers was of it's caliber.
@superman81 After the success of The Avengers, I think it would be DC's dumbest movie to not even attempt to do a JLA movie and do it the right way. Meaning, use stars from current franchises and build it up to lead to the JLA movie, the same method Marvel used. The Avengers movie alone is gonna lead to at least three spinoffs and a sequel or two.

Sometimes, I can't stand DC...
This viral ad was WEAK when compared to Prometheus viral TED ad. Now that one was awesome.
"Welcome to escrow, bitch!"... funny...

Elijah Woods as a villain? I can't picture it but seems interesting.

But all jokes aside, this poster would have never been possible 5, 10 , 20 years ago. Give credit to all the great action stars of yesterday in a major action film of today.

They should rename this to "Grumpy Old Men... with Guns"
@skywise: When were they hinting at The Lizard in the Tobey films? I don't recall seeing any hints for him.
@skywise: Exactly! And it's something that DC comicbook movies lack. They need to adopt and put into practice the Marvel factor of inter-connecting their films across franchises. At this moment, its impossible. The current Batman franchise is to too realistic to connect with the likes of a Superman or even an Aquaman. ANd I agree with you about X-Men's contuity. Marvel/Disney need to find a way to get ALL their characters back under one house - Spiderman, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and especially Ghost Rider and Blade.

@Alastor: I completely agree. As much as I would like it to, it can't surpass Avatar and Titanic.

@MadTatter730: In terms of the weekend it comes out, yeah, I gotta disagree. MIB3 be #1 in the Box Office that weekend and will do more than The Avengers because by that time, Avengers may be grossing only $50 million and most WIll Smith/MIB movies open at $60+ million. But in terms of total gross, nah. I dont think MIB will earn more than a billion.
@PointMan528491 I hope it does too. Top 5 highest grossing movies is a MAJOR accomplishment.

@cheetoboy: I agree. I want it to defeat Battleship in the numbers next week but it'll be very close.

And let's be real between the comparisons of Avatar and The Avengers. AS much as I would LOVE it if The Avengers surpassed Avatar, due to the timing of its release (and re-release) and the 3D tech at that time was brand new, Avatar was strategically released at the best time to earn what it did. The Avengers are going against many, many other good to awesome films during the Summer. We should all just be amazed at what it has accomplished thus far. I doubt they'll be another movie of this caliber for a few years.
@youngrizo @superman81 Don't forget that Avatar was released twice and had an extended run the first time it was released. No, I don't think The Avenger are going to beat Avatar in total gross (which I would love it to), but 1) The Avengers hasn't opened in Japan yet and 2) if The Avengers opened in December w/o comp like Avatar did, I could see it beating those numbers.
Nikita is wack...
I liked it but I thought it was cancelled.
