I'm not familiar with either of those actors listed for Luke Cage, but they both have the look of the character. I LOVE the idea of Krysten Ritter for Jessica Jones. She's someone I never would have thought of, but she's a really fun actress and this is a perfect way to bring her into the MCU. This is the first I'm hearing about Cage showing up first in the JJ show, so that bodes well for them carrying over the romance between those two from the comics.

@undeadslayer4 I've only seen her in The Wolf of Wall Street, but she's pretty great in it.

This could be a fun take on the character.

@EmmyttWolfe Go listen to the episode of the podcast How Did This Get Made? where they discuss Punisher Warzone to hear her chat about her experiences making the film. It's pretty informative and she's fun to listen to.

@EmmyttWolfe I haven't seen it, but Punisher Warzone seems to have a really strong cult audience. Fans of Punisher comics feel like that movie was the one to get the tone right. I've heard Lexi Alexander in a few interviews and it's really interesting to hear her talk about making that movie and how the movie she was trying to make and the movie the studio thought she was making were different.
@greyhame27 Definitely. I'm not a big enough Fantastic Four fan to really be offended, and I'm curious enough about Trank's approach to see how it turns out. I have a feeling it could be a really different, interesting take on the superhero genre...or else a complete disaster. We'll see.

@va When was that confirmed? As far as I knew we only had a title and no story details about Thor 3. (Although I think you're probably correct that that's their usage of the term here).

@EmmyttWolfe Especially when you consider that we're getting a new Star Wars franchise being launched at the same time!

Bring it. I can't believe we're getting four new titles in Phase 3 when there were only two in Phase 2.
I didn't have trouble hearing any of the dialogue. Maybe these people were at theatres with poorly-calibrated sound?
Good actors
@undeadslayer4 The Silmarillion is the Tolkein book that tells the story of Isildur (which was shown briefly in the intro to Fellowship of the Ring). He's the guy who takes the ring from Sauron and keeps it for a long time and it slowly turns him crazy (before he is killed and Gollum finds it). I think there's a good movie centered on his story to be made. A more tragic prequel to the LOTR story.
Daniel Bruhl is a really intense actor. I think he'd make a great villain.
@undeadslayer4 Well since the Silmarillion is set long before the Hobbit and Shadows of Mordor is set after it, there's not really any overlap.

Not sure how the movie will be, but these trailers are instantly better because they use Beyonce songs.
@undeadslayer4 I agree. With Howard Stark, Marvel's precedent is to cast different actors for characters at different ages. I wonder who they'll pick Douglas' younger counterpart.
Can't wait to hear this at the end of the trilogy.
Yeah, she'd be a perfect choice. If this goes forward I'll be way more excited for Wonder Woman than for Batman V. Superman.
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Spider-Man: Aunt May Spy Movie in Development at Sony?
It really seems like the failure of ASM2 threw Sony for a loop (because all the other Spider-Man films were huge hits), and now they can't really figure out what to do with the franchise. Every day you hear about another "Spider-Man Universe" story idea they have that doesn't feature Spider-Man. This is the silliest one so far.
This is dumb. But I'm still interested in seeing a trailer.

@rjh094 Those movies failed because they were terrible movies, not because they were starring women. I think Lucy proved that audiences are willing to come out for a female-led action movie, as long as it's something they're interested in.

@Author987 Agreed. She's done killer work, and they're much more likely to go for her than for a big (and expensive) name like Bigelow (although I think she's the dream choice).
