The Marvel Experience is coming to next week. There's been some hype about it, and some friends and I may go. But I'm sure it'll be a crazy mess.

The whole sony leak thing is fascinating to me--seeing how these movies get made. There seems like a ton of incompetency and Poochie level lack of self-awareness.

But I did like hearing the 21 jump street/ Men In Black crossover idea. I'd go see that movie.

wow I did not sit through the whole 21 jump street movie as it seemed a lot like the new dukes of hazard movie. Just take a old show remove any of its charm or character and up the lowbrow humor to Something Like Mary level and call it a day. I will have to give it another chance.

Eh, i liked the chemistry of the two guys and laughed, but i'd definitely say it's typical Jonah Hill humor for better or worse, so if that's not your cup of tea, you may not enjoy it.

If it were Matt Stone and Trey Parker and it had a Team America: World Police vibe to it, I would be all over that

Well there's also a deadpool movie in the works. Dont know who is writing/in-charge of that, but THAT would be the superhero movie for someone who's funny and super creative to work on. I'd love Dan Harmon to do it, but now i've got Trey and matt in my head.

Ryan Reynolds owns the rights to Dead Pool, from what I understand. He is perfect for the role.

While Dead Pool's humor is great in the comics and might even work on a 30 minute cartoon 2 hours of it might drag a bit. Also I am not sure how it will play with the main hero looking like a deep-fried zombie after rotting 5 days in the hot sun. I am sure they will have to find a not so creative way around that so we can see Mr Reynolds money maker smile. But then is it the same character from the comics any more? People generally hated his cameo in the Wolverine movie where he did not have the trademark ugly zombie face or red suit on.

with a Dead Pool movie you can easily bring in characters like Domino and Cable (X-Force, New mutants) and of course Wolverine. Dead Pool crosses into a lot of different Marvel comics. I believe he was even interacted with S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America and Green Arrow at times.

A good movie is certainly possible ... although it would have to be pretty true to the comics (unlike X-Men Origins: Wolverine)

True, Green Arrow is DC by the way. Hawkeye is the Marvel Robonhood. smile

I am just worried they will still advertise DeadPoll to kids like they did with Gremlins when he is a totally rated R hero.

damn, sorry I knew that, don't know what I was thinking ... watching too much Arrow, I guess.

I definatly agree he is not PG, but neither is wolverine in the comics.

I prefer Marvel comics to DC comics because Marvel uses real cities, not made up ones


Also, because Ben Affleck will be the new Batman and though it may not directly be DC's fault, I hold them responsible for this incredibly rediculous choice

Well Frank Miller worked on both DareDevil and BatMan so I guess it is the norm for one person to work on both heroes actually.

Affleck doesn't bother me. He's done decent films lately and there have been plenty of suprprisingly awesome performances from unexpected people in thes movies (ledger).

I'm more worried that DC/Warner Brothers has no idea what they are doing and are going to ruin the thing because they see what Marvel is doing and take away the wrong lesson. They want the shared universe thing wtih all kinds of spin-offs, but they're not paying attention to how GOOD these movies are. And they want to make them all super serious and gritty. Batman is super serious and gritty, not Superman or Wonder Woman.

Well now the rumor is that the hack/reaction may convince Sony to work out a deal with Marvel on Spider-Man after all
