@Brizzy Why would X1 still exist and not Origins, since that chronologically came first? I know given Logan's status at the end of DoFP it makes sense that the events of Origins would be moot, but then so are the events of X-Men 1 (at least, as they happened in the movie). Singer and Co. have already said that we can imagine that the timeline that spun out from DoFP followed a similar trajectory as that in the original films, but with some differences as necessary given previous events that had changed. It would be interesting to imagine the plots of those original 3 films but try to identify how those events might change as a result of DoFP (for instance, Mystique's character in all three of those films would presumably have been very different).
I would say he'd be a good fit to play the younger Hank Pym in flashbacks, but if those flashbacks are to Pym's early days as Ant Man (which I believe have been stated as being the 1960s) then he's too old for that. I wonder who he's playing.

If this happens it likely won't be The X-Men. It will be some offshoot of the X-Men universe, but you definitely won't see Storm, Cyclops and the rest running around on TV, unless they're going to do this the DC route and have the movies and TV shows be completely separate entities with some of the same characters played by different actors.

@undeadslayer4 Nah, the way they did it in the movie was a clever twist on an outdated, irrelevant character. Move on.

@undeadslayer4 I hope they don't return to that well. Iron Man 3 has nothing to apologise for.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Robert Downey Jr. Teases Possible Return in Iron Man 4
@ejk1 Yeah, Downey doesn't even have to do much stunt work because Iron Man is a CGI character in action. I don't suspect Marvel will replace him because of a negotiation fallout, or not ask him back. The only time they'll replace him is when he really doesn't want to come back.

Stop saying "epic."
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Will Star Wars 7 Return to Mos Eisley Cantina?
This sounds pretty cool. I like the idea of these new green characters trying to take on (insert villain here) and then realising they need the help of the old Master. And exploding planets? Could there be another Death Star that's been secretly built?
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Robert Downey Jr. Teases Possible Return in Iron Man 4
@ejk1 He loves the character, for sure. You have to assume that if Marvel has any interest in getting him back for more they'll play his game and he'll play theirs, more than any other actor they've worked with, I suspect. Downey is the one who started all this for them.
This seems like a much more believable get for Marvel than Joaquin Phoenix ever was. I like Hawke for the role. He's the right age (i.e., not in his 20s-30s) for an established character, and he can definitely pull off the arrogance that Stephen Strange needs. Hawke has this great sense of weariness, like life has been hard on him, while always seeming to be able to step up and take what he wants.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Rihanna Wanted for Bond 24 Role and Theme Song?
I like Rihanna, and I think she'd make a killer Bond theme song, but I don't much care to see her in the movie, as I think that would be distracting. I like how they've gone with lesser-known actresses in these new films.

So glad they're back.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Will Avengers 3 Be a Two-Part Movie?
It seems to make sense that they would pull out all the stops for an Infinity Gauntlet-inspired big finale to the current Avengers series; it feels like they've been building to that for a while now. So I can see this happening. I find it hard to believe they would leave an entire year between two halves of one story. If they do go ahead with this I'm guessing it will be shot back to back and released 6 months apart. Will they actually have the same title (with Part 1 and Part 2) or will they have two separate titles?

This seems like the kind of move that can essentially buy Marvel a clean slate, sort of reset with the focus shifted to newer characters, as by then actors like Downey and Ruffalo and Hemsworth will probably want to call it quits.
Whatever ends up coming of this, it's a gorgeous image that I REALLY want a hi-res version of for the wall.
That was hilarious.
Josh gave this a Thumbs Up
Sounds like an intriguing storyline. It's a bit disappointing that it's mostly white dudes again, but I'm interested in Vaughn playing a villain role. I hope McAdams signs. She'd be a good fit. Although I wouldn't be against having Moss or Dawson in the role either, especially if it means not having to watch Biel or Ackerman, who are far less compelling performers.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item GIVEAWAY: Win Spartacus the Complete Series on Blu-ray
This show has been on my list to watch for a while now. This would make it easy to watch all together in HD!
@undeadslayer4 Well, a smaller scale, for one. I don't think we'll be seeing any intergalactic threats in these shows, although we will probably be getting some kind of central antagonist or threat that will be the reason for bringing all four characters together.

I'm expecting something like a police/detective procedural with more comic book flare, sort of in the vein of Angel.
@undeadslayer4 Because he was an inept villain and it made sense for him to go out like a chump after causing all the chaos on the island.
