The Turtles looked GREAT!!! It's everything else I'm concerned with. Fincher playing Shredder, Shredder involved with their creation, Foot Clan toting guns????? C'mon Mr. Michael Bay... I had faith in you.

Will wait to see the movie to give my true opinion/judgement... but so far... 50/50.
@jonspidey07 I'd say the greenish skin, green eyes and pointy nose help along with the rotten teeth to portray a true goblin. Dafoe's goblin had no physical modifications.
1000 times better than the last cinematic version of Green Goblin
Anything other than Lobo or Darkseid is completely unacceptable.
WHAT IF its really Ultron fighting Hulk in the Hulbuster??? #YourWelcome
Worst. Teaser. EVER.
So they're introducing Batman, Nightwing and possibly Wonder Woman all in one movie with no origin, no subtle appearance first?
@gandoff Johnny Depp was a "descendent"? Not trying to push the racial issue with last names such as Jordan and Wiley, I'm sure they a couple Caucasian descendants.

At the end of the day, I think the story is what is truly pivotal. Characters change all the time - race, gender, etc. If the story isn't honored and respected, THEN there's an issue. If we were really gonna get that touchy about character portrayal, we wouldn't have an Aussie playing Wolverine, a Canadian or a Brit playing Spiderman...
Yet.... Johnny Depp could play Tonto, an Indian, and actually pretend to be Indian? Or even almost the entire caucasian cast of The Last Airbender perpetrating as Asian? As much as I don't fully agree with the possible cast, its not as if they said these Black actors are portraying white characters and pretending to be white. @thedude1 @Joshua-Hollaway @Johnny1312 @Godfrey-Iamsen
@ObiWanShinobi If that was the case, then David Hasselhoff would still be playing Nick Fury in The Avengers instead of Samuel L. Jackson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Fury:_Agent_of_S.H.I.E.L.D._(film)). Fury was originally a Caucasian male. Nothing is wrong with the change as long as it doesn't take away from the story. And Michael B. Jordan happens to a great actor on the rise.
Now that its been confirmed that Pym is not the creator of Ultron in the movie but he is the sequel's villain, my theory seems to be true. S.H.I.E.L.D will ultimately be the creator of Ultron. Remember, they still have the advanced robot "The Destroyer" from Asgard that Thor battled in his first movie and stated in The Avengers they've tried to match their tech. Also, in The Avengers, Phase 2 was a reference to the advanced weapons they made. What if one of the advanced weapons created wasn't just a handheld gun like Coulson used but a robotic lifeform using The Destroyer as a template and tesseract to power it?

Any thoughts???

I find it hilarious that everyone is now fighting for RDJ to stay when a few years back, when marvel announced he would be IM/Tony Stark, everybody made a big fuss about how wrong Marvel got it. No one believed he could pull off that character especially around the time it was announced due to his own troubles in real life. But not only did he do it, HE OWNED IT. And now y'all are saying "only" RDJ could play IM/TOny Stark. Give me a break. Honestly, I think Marvel should set a standard rule that the roles of these main characters (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, etc) should be held by one actor for 3 standalone films and 2 group films. After that, RECAST!!! IF they want, they could even go as far as recasting them all at once as the result of a major event in a movie, the same way marvel does every few years when they change the look and feel of the characters.

@rocknrolla I completely agree. As much as Iron Man is guaranteed money for them with RDJ, they have to be realistic and realize he's not gonna play that character forever. They have to start opening up their rolodex of superheroes and start creating more standalone films for various characters.

@riley-d... I fully agree in regards to the Bond situation. Bond is NOT a moniker. Each film could almost be considered a reboot since they never really refer to previous films. To be real, there is truly no definitive timeline in the Bond world.
Here's hoping to a better treatment of them on the big screen sometime in the future, whether its directly through Disney (highly unlikely) or a mutual partnerships that gives Disney/Marvel more control than previous arangements.
I believe without a doubt that not only is the villain for Avengers 2 Ultron, I believe he's already been created. Within the first 10 minutes of The Avengers film, they tease this. Agent Coulson is instructed to move Phase 2 cases to a safer place. Later in the film, it is discovered that Fury was intending to create weapons as a result of Thor's fight with that robot in the Thor film. I believe Fury already hired Pym to not only help create those advanced gun weapons but use the technology found in the robot that S.H.I.E.L.D may have confiscated to help create Ultron. Some of those cases in the movie may have actually contained bits and parts of Ultron.

I think leaving Thanos for the third Avengers film is a great idea cause by that time, the majority of the Avengers team should be together and the climax of all the Phase 2 and Phase 3 movies will lead to the ultimate climax.
"but the filmmaker and studio couldn't see eye-to-eye on where to take the story"... I see what you did there MovieWeb. #veryclever
Random thought. What if those "Iron Men" were being controlled by The Mandarin and IM/Tony Stark has to defeat his own technology?

As much as I would love for the JLA movie to be just as awesome as The Avengers 2 (Major marvel fan here, but two awesome summer movie benefits everyone), if this story is true it will be the biggest failure to the JLA movie... and they already have too many factors weighting against them.

So, DC is planning to not only bring together Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern in one movie but also introduce Wonder Woman and Flash for the first time while fighting their biggest villain EVER in the very first entry of what could possibly be a long franchise? Does anyone else see a problem with this?

1) Introducing Flash and WW respective origin would take up at least a quarter of the movie, 2) Introducing a "new" Batman, Wonder Woman, and Flash with no previous movie (or even a mention of) is a major No-No, 3) The fact that the audience is being introduced to new actors playing 3 of 5 of the heroes for the first time is a character development/relation nightmare, 4) their biggest adversary introduced as the villain in the first film with no build up, most likely a short glimpse of Apokolips, and very little screen time is STUPID and kinda sets a downward tone for the remaining films in the franchise in regards to their villain choices, and 5) the fact that DC is pacing this project so fast just to get it out the same time as The Avengers 2 is weak because that could cost the movie overall quality and development.

DC should take their time and actually look at what Marvel has done right and improve. Not everything Marvel has done has been a success (e.g. Hulk, Ghost Rider, Punisher). They have a chance of really outshining Marvel if they took their time and did it right because let's be honest... as much as I'm a Marvel fan and I love The Avengers, their second rate compared to JLA. The heroes of JLA are just more widely popular, have better character development/relations, and they have the biggest hero of all time on their team. They already have the advantage so utilize it the proper way and stop trying to play catch up. It took Marvel over 8 years to reach the success of The Avengers.
This is gonna not only do well in the Box Office, but I see a lot of Oscar nominations. Looks good!!!
Y'all could believe what you want but what happened in Aurora did not take $40 million away from the TDKR opening earnings. Yes, I believe it affected the total number in some manner but NO WAY by that much. As I stated before, TDKR will not do better than The Avengers on opening weekend due to 1) lack of 3D, 2) the darker tone of the movie, 3) the unknown factor of the villain Bane.

I predicted $160-175 on opening weekend before the Aurora incident and it seems most analysts were thinking the same thing. And those Saturday and Sunday drops you guys speak of is very normal for blockbuster movies in this month. In May, which is when Avengers premiered, the drop offs are much lower so you get bigger return.
