Who care's WHO he's playing, just make this happen.

So weird that Jackman's name is plastered across the poster he's not even on. You don't need a name to sell and X-Men movie. Everyone knows who's in them.
Johnny Knoxville seems like more of a Michelangelo to me, no?
@2movieguys Let me guess, "Looks like the rent is due?!"
Holly Hunter instantly makes anything better.

@undeadslayer4 I think they went with the purple accents to get around that.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Toby Kebbell Is Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four
@ObiWanShinobi I'm not saying he will or won't be Latverian, I was just wondering if they would make more of an effort to do so this time than last time, when, as was established, he was Latverian in name only. I don't think making Storm (Johnny Storm, I mean, not Storm from X-Men) black means they won't necessarily make Doom Latverian, because Johnny Storm's race isn't really important to the character, whereas Doom being Latverian is pretty much one of his defining features. He's a power-hungry autocrat and, given the current landscape of Russia it seems like prime time to play with that theme.
@undeadslayer4 I know, I was being a bit cheeky. ;)

@superman81 Ah, my mistake. I've pretty much blocked out everything from that movie. He would have been Latverian in name only, though. He had all the appearance (in speech, etc.) of an American.

@ObiWanShinobi I'm not sure what those two things have to do with each other. Storm is still going to be American in this film, I'm just wondering if Doom will be Latverian, or if they'll make him American like in the first FF film.
Jordan is a more than fitting replacement. Evans is such a classy guy.

@2movieguys How about you do everyone a favour and Google someone next time you don't recognize them?

Do you think the character will actually be Eastern European this time?

Back where it started. Seems fitting.
@undeadslayer4 Chewbacca and Han Solo had a son together? Wow, the EU went all kinds of fan-ficcy places I didn't know about!

Yes, they've explicitly stated the EU is not canon. Multiple times. Here, just to show you:

@justatadmatt That's a great point. He certainly wouldn't be the first director to get burned on a big studio picture experience and go back to making art-films.

@renodc So you must have hated the Lord of the Rings too, then?

@justatadmatt None of that will matter if the movie makes bank. For that matter, the disagreements were only over the studio trying to appeal to a religious audience, and that's not likely an issue with other big genre properties that aren't based on the Bible.
@superman81 Yeah, it's an under-armour type shirt. Probably his own homemade attempt at a superhero costume. I guarantee he won't be wearing that through the entire film. Also, of course his hair is bleached. People bleach their hair all the time. These characters are young people, probably ones who are always on the move, sort of transient, so they're cultivating their own look. It's supposed to look somewhat cheap and rough around the edges. He's basically wearing tape on his hands. Whedon isn't designing them to look sleek and uniform, he's designing them to look streetwise. It's very intentional.

Similarly, it looks like Singer is going for the look of a loner, basement-dwelling 70s teen for his version, which makes sense for that movie.

People need to stop bitching about the look of these characters based on a couple of images.
@superman81 Meh. People said the same thing about Nightcrawler when the set photos came out for X2. Wait for the movie. Piotr and Wanda are clearly not wearing Avengers costumes in any of the footage so far. They're just wearing street clothes.

@ghostman Yeah it's sort of a blend of all the costumes we've seen in the movies so far. I like it.
