While I would like to see her in tight pants (as the article puts it) I'd prefer her not having a leading role. If she makes an appearance as a super-powered side-character, for example in Civil War or Guardians 2, it might even work.

The content of the story? Or the writing of the author? This one kills me:

Quote:
Marvel has had a lot of female superheroes, whose respective roles were taken on by big name Hollywood actresses including Hally Berry for X-Men’s Storm, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm / Invisible Woman of the Fantastic Four, and Scarlett Johannson as Black Widow of the Avengers. Black Widow will be debuting in the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron” movie showing on May 1, 2015.


Sigh...

The author was pretty crap, true, but the content mostly. Lopez is a pretty lousy actor. I mean, remember her last movie? Of course not, no one saw it. And not only is she bad, she's also expensive so any chance of a quality supporting cast gets jeopardized. The worst though is that some nutcase upper management twit is going to remember that she's also a singer so they'll tack on a song for her. Probably disguise it as a karaoke scene.

And then there's the long-term, with reports like this even if they're rumors I can't imagine how that'd play out when she's forced to play second banana to Tony Stark and Captain America.

The bad thing about becoming a popular genre is that once you're popular everyone wants to become a part of your world. If anything, she could probably get a role in Daredevil. As his walking stick.

I admit to only have seen her in Snow White and to know she was in those Twilight movies. Someone somewhere on the internet argued she is actually a talented actress which I found hard to belief. But then my research into that matter was not very thorough.

Someone somewhere on the internet also regularly argues that evolution is just a theory, the world is only 5,000 years old, and that Obama is actually a lizard alien.

To be fair, we have yet to see conclusive proof that that last one is false.

I'm almost certain that she goes with the female bodies not because of an affinity towards them but tactical.

Today Netflix suggested to me, Ghost in the Shell: Arise. Other than the first movie and the GitS:SAC (first series? Was there more season/series of SAC?), I hadn't see anything. So I started watching Arise, it only had 3 episodes, made it through two. In this show it said that she never had a human body. Her mother and father were killed while the mother was still pregnant with her, and some scientist took the brain from the fetus before she was born. Not sure how all these things fit together in the Ghost in the Shell "Universe".

Tohru = Hulk
Viper = Black Widow
El Torro = Falcon
Paco = Ant Man
Captain Black = Nick Fury
Super Moose = Thor
Kepler (Section 13 Tech Guy) = Iron Man

Keep in mind it's (allegedly) Mohawk punk Storm, which is my favorite version of her.

Back on MCU, looks like Marvel is courting Chiwetel Ejiofor for a role in Dr. Strange. Speculations abound. For the record, I'd go with either Mordo or Voodoo.

Not a big surprise but now it's official. Daniel Brühl will be playing Baron Zemo.


Edit: After I posted I followed your link and it reminded me about Brühls character being the villain in Dr. Strange. Which is kinda odd (pun avoided!) since Dr. Strange and Zemo are not heavily involved with each other as far as I know.

I'd prefer if he is not shot by Crossbones. They would resurrect him for Thanos and constantly having people reappear after they 'died' makes it loose its meaning when somebody is killed. After Infinity War (during which Thanos could squash Steve) they can bring Bucky as the new Captain in Phase 4.

David Tennant is cast as the Purple Man on AKA Jessica Jones. Looking forward to a creepy 10th Doctor Purple Man, not looking forward to Tennant's American accent. (Watch Broadchurch, then 1 episode of Gracepoint to understand). Oh & this guy will be playing Cage.

Maybe they'll have him use the British accent and try to play it off as James Bond-ish charm.

There's not enough info in that teaser for me to make an opinion either way. I like the look, but besides a trip to the negative zone there really isn't any plot revealed nor is Doctor Doom.

Now that doesn't mean it won't suck, mind you - just that the teaser didn't reveal enough info for me to declare it will...yet.

Agent Carter: I really liked that automatic pistol but holy crap return of the three point stance! Rage. Can't Marvel have one female fight scene that doesn't end like that? I went from "Holy crap awesome!" to "Ugh, again with that?" instantly. Kind of wonder who blondie is. I'm assuming Viper because for the life of me I can't think of anyone else, and according to the Captain America video game she's around during that time period, though I don't remember just how canon the game was.

Saw Agent Carter today and I must say, for me this was the best episode yet. At first I thought they had killed off Tommy Lee Jones offscreen but I checked his name in First Avenger and apparently it was another general who censored that file.

Agent Carter - Bets on Dottie? I'm going with the obvious yet not so obvious Yelena Belova, the second Black Widow? Also we clearly need more Howling Commandos cameos. Neal McDonough is a dead ringer for Dum Dum, up there with JK Simmons as J Jonah Jameson and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier. While I'm here more JK Simmons as JJJ. Not using him is a crime. He's for it, at least.

Here's the teaser to the trailer to Netflix's Daredevil series. Eventually we might even get an actual trailer.

Looks like Ol' Stick is showing up. Sweet.

Daredevil looks darker than anything we've had so far in the MCU. I like it!

Agent Carter was okay. I find it funny how they established Peggy speaking russian and avoided her saying anything in that language the whole episode.

Spiderman is officially back.

Not a great fan of this to be honest. Sony got way too much out of it.

"Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films."
"Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films."


Also, the wording of the article is just wrong...

"Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man."


At this point I'm highly sceptical. A question I've seen frequently is when will the MCU have its first *****-up. My bet is they will have that in one of the upcoming Spiderman movies.


Edit: Also, this.

I think this is for the best. No way Sony ever sells back the rights to Spidey, so having Marvel work on Spidey with them is probably what's best for fans. We get Spidey cameos in MCU movies & Sony makes fewer bad Spider-Man movies.

I read yesterday that Marvel wants Angelina Jolie to direct Captain Marvel, which may not be a bad thing.

Marvel wouldn't let her make a bad Captain Marvel flick. If she directed it, she'd probably have a part in it as well, which already gives Captain Marvel entirely more star power than it's competition.

I'd rather they get a director who can bring his/her own vision to the movie and uses that vision to improve the end result than having a moderate director who needs constant supervision to not screw it up.

Thats not how Marvel runs things, though. They get a director that will make the movie that Marvel wants them to make, or they'll find a new one. Sure, it's cool when a director adds their own flair to things, but outside of Guardians & Iron Man 3 there really haven't been any Marvel movies that were had anything in them that I could say was "distinctively" in a director's own personal "style".

Favreau's Iron Man movies could have been directed by anyone (& he was replaced in the 3rd one as director), Whedon's Avenger's would have been a similar flick if he didn't direct it (but still wrote the script), the first Thor was directed by Kenneth Branagh & it'd be hard to know that by watching it. Thor 2's Alan Taylor had worked on Game of Throne's, but I didn't notice much in it besides a darker tone that I would say was influenced by him (& that was probably the script), & Marvel famously canned Edgar Wright cause he didn't want to make the movie they wanted.

Sure, if Jolie gets the job & ***** everything up I'll be proven wrong, but with Marvel's track record I just don't see them letting anyone fail.

I agree with most of what you wrote. But just compare Winter Soldier to one of the weaker entries (Thor 2 or Iron Man 3 for example). I'd say Jolie would not be able to do a Winter Soldier. Even with help from above.

Considering Paul Rudd and Bicycle Cummerbund's roles, that does seem to be the direction Marvel is heading. Though personally it doesn't really do anything for me. The MCU hasn't really had any issue with casting, I guess lesser actors is the nicest way to put it. Robert Downey Jr was a flat out risk before he was cast as Tony Stark. Then you have Evans, Pratt, Hemsworth, and Johannson who were all almost entirely unknowns.

I kind of want Olivia Wilde to play the lead. I'm not entirely sure why. Just thought I'd throw that out.
