    Uhhh...apparently pro wrestler Triple H is in the running to play Thor.

    As a wrestling fan, I think it's badass,
    but as a movie fan, I don't think it'd be good.
    Fucking ugh. :frustrated:

    I read that Marvel is interested in John Barrowman for Captain America.

    Now, I always thought it was kind of silly when people didn't like a Welsh man playing Batman...but I do find this kind of weird.

    His name is Captain AMERICA...and they're going to hire a Scottish guy?

    Is there absolutely no one in America who they think could handle the role? No one at all?

    I also imagine there'll be hell to pay when people realize that he's not only Scottish, but gay as well.

    Well... it's called acting. If he looks and plays the part, I don't see the problem.

    I don't either, but we're talking about the general public here.

    These are the same people who sent death threats to Ian McKellen for playing Gandalf.

    I didn't know that. Because of his gayness? That's just goofy.

    On somewhat related news, J.K. Rowling claims Dumbledore is thought up as a gay character.

    Yes, I read that as well.

    Having only seen the Harry Potter movies, I have to admit I never really contemplated his sexual orientation

    I've imagined Hermywine as a lesbian, along with that entire school of hot chicks.

    I'm progressive like that.

    'Iron Man’ Writers Want Hulk To Be ‘The Avengers’ Villain

    “The Incredible Hulk” director Louis Leterrier told MTV News this past June that he didn’t think any villain could, and suggested that they use a hero instead: his.

    “Iron Man” writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who themselves may be writing another Marvel movie in the near future, couldn’t agree more, they told MTV News, insisting that everything is building towards making The Hulk the villain in the eagerly anticipated 2011 movie.

    “I hope ‘The Avengers’ embraces that,” Fergus said of having the Hulk as misunderstood baddie. “You don’t want like 10 super-badass good guys fighting together. Where’s the fun in that? Let’s break it off a little. Friends or colleagues who become enemies is always an interesting thing because you know it’s based on love and friendship and that’s always the worst thing to have turn bad — is someone you actually care about and someone you actually believe in.”

    Isn't there an Ant-Man?

    I guess they won't be doing that movie...

    Does kinda make sense considering the ending of Hulk.

    It's very very horrible, sir. It's one of those things we wish we could disinvent.

    I haven't read much about The Avengers, just The Ultimates 1 & 2. And the team in that comic consisted of The Hulk / Banner, Captain America, Thor, Ant-Man, Wasp, Iron Man, Hawkeye and Black Widow.

    It seems most of them will get their individual movie before the Avengers movie. I don't think there are plans for a Hawkeye or Black Widow movie yet.

    Some heroes are meant for team books only or act as supporting characters. Like Hawkeye, Black Widow and The Wasp.

    Well, to be fair, I don't think Wright's Ant-Man film is related to this slate of "Avengers" films. Meaning, I don't think there's any studio contract linking it to this mega-project and it won't necessarily be the same actor or tone for the Ant-Man film and The Avengers film.

    Isn't that correct?

    Probably. From what I hear, it's an action-comedy more based on the new Ant-Man character who uses his powers for personal gain (like peeping superheroines in the shower).

    Well, that's kind of a shame. I think I like Cheadle better, but it's always kind of annoying when they replace an actor.

    I like the people saying they should've replaced him with Cuba Gooding, Jr. I agree that they should cast him, but not as Jim Rhodes. Perhaps Iron Man's armor shiner?
