Dear WARNER\DC,
NOBODY GIVES FLYING F#%k ABOUT JESSICA CRUZ OR ANY OTHER FEMALE GREEN LANTERN, SO FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP TRYING TO STROKE YOUR F#%KING EGO BY TRYING TO MAKE YOURSELVES LOOK PROGRESSIVE AND SOCIALLY RELEVANT. MAKE THE D@MN MOVIE WE WANT TO SEE AND QUIT SCREWING WITH THE CHARACTERS!!!!!!
@junior Roberts It's incredibly frustrating.
The CW is doing a great job. I wish DC could do better maintaining continuity within it's entire universe. It's all over the place.

To me, Blomkamp's only mistake with Elysium was that the overarching theme of the film was just way too preachy. I just felt like I was constantly getting thumped with the socialist handbook.

Yes!!!!! Sony should let Marvel do their thing, and this is a giant leap in that direction. Avi Arad is a great producer when he's functioning "in name only". When he's actually involved creatively, he's pure crap!! He's been like a small cancer to several Marvel franchises over the years. Wish Marvel could completely part ways with him.
@josh He did some similar "ignoring" in Superman Returns. Cherry picking aspects of history from the originals and ignoring other aspects.
@josh That's true, but Singer could choose to just ignore that Angel was introduced in the original timeline and hope nobody notices or cares. Especially since Angel's introduction was so brief.

@clint Good point.
Guess I should have read the article better. According to The Wrap, it says he's not playing Angel, but Angel is in it.
If they follow the comics on Apocalypse, then Angel would play an integral role because Apocalypse makes him his Archangel, so Angel could be a very good possibility.

@matt Jones I think this film takes place in the 80's, so Iceman wouldn't be around unless some kind of time travel occurred and in that case I would think they would bring Shawn Ashmore back as Iceman.

I like to read these Ghostbusters articles just to check and see if Melissa McCarthy is still attached. She is, so I'm still not interested.

Personally, I've gotten tired of the liberal rants that are almost guaranteed to be littered throughout the Oscars.
Lady Gaga was the highlight of the show.

Wish he could convince Robert Downey Jr. to take that same attitude with Tony Stark
Hope this is rumor.
@josh By evolving, I meant gradually and organically, not just one episode he's in black and the next he's in red.

Keaton should have won the Oscar. Redmayne did a great job, but Keaton's performance was better. Unfortunately for Keaton, Oscar voters have a penchant for actors in roles that exhibit severe physical or mental disability. Of course as Kirk Lazarus has taught us, that holds true as long as they "don't go full retard".
I hope the costume evolves as the show moves along.
@writer220 Spielberg wasn't the problem with the last one. It was George Lucas. In 2002, Spielberg came up with a concept that would pit Indy vs. Ex-Nazi's trying to restore the Third Reich by searching for some undisclosed relic. He convinced Lucas to allow Frank Darabont to write the script, and Spielberg absolutely loved the finished product, BUT in the meantime Lucas had formulated this dumba$$ "interdimensional alien" concept and therefore rejected Spielberg's idea and Darabont's script and decided to write the script himself which became Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Both Spielberg and Ford voiced concerns over Lucas' final script for Crystal Skull. In the end Spielberg was quoted as saying "I said my piece to George, but in the end, Indy his baby"

Personally, I would love to see Spielberg tackle this with Chris Pratt.
I'm cautiously optimistic. Blomkamp obviously has all the tools to be a ridiculously good director and has an amazing visual capacity, but I am waiting for him to step away from the "socialist propaganda films disguised as science fiction" and produce something purely entertaining. I am not holding out hope on Chappie, but maybe I'll get it with his take on Aliens.
