@youngrizo Just saw battleship and must say youhit the nail on the head. It wasn't horrible as most others are making it sound but it definitely wasn't great. Its way below Revenge of the fallen standards if you ask me.
@writer220 No... you and Ryan Reynolds.
Without a doubt, this movie is gonna be both their biggest flops to date. And that's saying a lot cause Sandler did "Jack and Jill"
@ejk1 I 500% agree with every word you said. Well put. If DC is actually carrying out the idea of putting a JLA movie without buildup, the right actors, a good story, right characters and intriguing/interesting villain, they will strongly negatively effect all their upcoming movies as well and end up with a domino effect of failures.
@dadarkknight Marvel didn't give every character from The Avengers a movie, just the core characters (Hulk, Thor, Capt, and Iron Man). Hawkeye and Black Widow are gonna get solo movies as a result of the success of The Avengers. But the audience needs to know how they began. Their origins. And they need to do this with their DC characters. We, as comicbook fans, know the story of each hero. The majority of moviegoers don't. They don't know Wonder Woman, Hawkman, Flash or even Aquaman's beginnings.

@rjh094 DC wasn't gonna let them outshine them but they have to do it in an efficient manner that will work not just in the JL movie but across franchises. Marvel kinda took out the big risk for them by doing it first but DC, whether they take the same root as Marvel by setting up individual movies or not, cannot rush into it half assed just to catch up to marvel. They will be fail if they do so.
OK.... let's be real. The names I'm seeing mentioned by some to play Black Panther are outrageous.

1- Djimon Hounsou would be a great choice... 20 years ago. I'm not hating on him. He's a great actor. But he's near 50 (and looks every year of it) and the big-screen interpretation of Black Panther should be relatively younger. I think he should still be involved in the project but not as the lead.

2- Chewitel Ejiofor is another great actor but I don't see him pulling in a big audience nor portraying a character of intense action.

3- Will Smith? I won't even get into the many reasons why this idea is wrong and I'm speaking as one of his BIGGEST fans.

4- Michael Jai White.... I'm not mad at this choice. His acting is average (sometimes over the top), but looks wise, I think he's a good choice. Could he pull of an African accent? Maybe...

5- Tyrese.... see comments I made for Michael Jai White

My #1 choice would be Laz Alonso. You may be unfamiliar with him but he was actually in Avatar and Fast and Furious (Google him). Great actor, meets the physical aspect looks wise, and has experience in action. True, he doesn't have the name power of a Robert Downey Jr but neither did Hemsworth before Thor.
I'm heavily Pro-Marvel, but would actually like to see DC put this project out. The competition between both would only benefit us as viewers. The problem is DC/WB is a day late and a few movies short to accomplish this successfully.

@jasonkat I completely agree. DC needs to use the marvel technique and introduce at least some of the core characters in solo films as Marvel did. But I think that Batman will be forced to be rebooted because other heroes of Superman and Wonder Woman caliber wouldn't work in Nolan's Batman universe.

@superman81 If DC is actually pushing this as a standalone movie that has nothing to do with their other franchises or even possibly establish new franchises, they've failed already.

These TV spots for "Brave" are becoming very random.

@vampire2000 LMAO... good one. This is one of those movies you watch in your dorm room while craving your munchies.
Two teaser trailers. Two failures. Sad really cause I LOVED the first Anchorman. Please let the movie be funnier that the trailers are letting on.
These posters are 'OK'. They have NOTHING on the posters from the previous Dark Knight film. Now those were awesome character posters.
I haven't really seen John Carter but the article never stated that it was a bad movie. He simply stated it was a box office failure. And I gotta agree. With the amount of money it earned against the amount of money put into it to produce and market, it will be considered a failure. Beyond that, I've only heard good things about the movie.
Junior Roberts wrote a comment about the news item Skyfall Trailer!
Is it just me or was this trailer just "OK"? Everyone seems to be saying how great the trailer is and well edited and this and that. But I gotta be real and admit this trailer didn't do anything for me. The last Mission Impossible's trailer was x2 as better. Sorry.... but this didn't hit the mark for me.

ANd the fact that you can't even tell this is a Bond movie. The feeling that most Bond movies have is definitely not in this trailer.
So I take it that Battleship wasn't that great, huh? I haven't sen it yet but from the trailers alone, it didn't look like a movie that was made to make you think and wonder and enjoy every aspect. It's a popcorn movie if you ask me- made strictly to entertain via action and special effects.

And I already called it that The Avengers wouldn't be trumped by them. The Avengers hype still continues through word of mouth and repeat viewers. BUT... it will fall to #2 next week when MIB3 is released. It just is what it is.

@rjh094 I agree. Wolverine, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider all needs to be bought back by marvel. You can leave Spidey at SOny. There are doing a pretty decent job with him.... as long as they don't pull a Spiderman 3 again.

Consider me not impressed....
weak...
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.
