My own little rumor

September 10, 2008 at 11:49 am (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I’m going to start my own little rumor today. I’ll pet it and feed it and take care of it lol. Anyways with all of the rumor mongering going on about Batman 3, I’d like to propose some people that I think should show up in the next Batman. First of all I’d really like to see Harley Quinn show up. The first person I thought of that could play her was Natalie Portman. I’d like to see her go a little crazy, more so than she did in V for Vendetta at least. I think it would definitely be a challenge for her seeing as how so many people see her as that happy little girl even though she’s 27 now. I could see Natalie working at the Arkham Asylum and either feeling sympathy for the Joker or being tricked into letting him out. Supposedly they shot enough film of Heath Ledger to have the Joker in the 3rd film so who knows. You can do a lot with computer graphics now. Speaking of which, I’d love to see a Nolanverse rendition of Harley’s outfit. It would definitely have to be slinky and it needs the cute joker hat I think. The makeup should be updated too. If my computer was working, maybe I’d try to make something with Photoshop but alas, it’s not. Oh and a warning for anyone who tries to look up pictures of Harley, do not google image search harlequin. Just trust me on this ๐Ÿ˜ฆ .

I was reading a cool blog yesterday and realized that I too would love to see Robin in the next film. There’s also a very cool drawing of a Robin suit on there that you should check out. (You should definitely read the full article because it’s got some good plot ideas.) He needs to be played by someone fairly young, at least young enough so he looks younger than Christian Bale (hopefully Nolan is smart enough not to repeat The Mummy 3’s mistake geez ๐Ÿ˜› ). He should definitely be a teenager so Batman can mentor him (he shouldn’t be like 10 because that would make Christian Bale seem a little creepy lol). He should have to make the transformation to Robin like how Bruce Wayne becomes Batman in the first film. Also, Robin should be buff enough (If Tobey Maguire can do it, so can you!) to be a gymnast since he used to be one before his parents were killed.

Robin’s suit needs to be redesigned too because he can’t be that stealthy in a bright red costume with a green cape. Also, I don’t want any more nipple suits like in Batman and Robin (thankfully the good people at Topless Robot remember and agree with me). I’d like the design of Robin’s costume to be more similar to Nightwing’s outfit in build but obviously not blue (that and he’s not allowed to have a mullet like I’ve seen some Nightwings have *shudder*). It should be a dark red similar to the Batman and Robin outfit. If they’re smart they would use the design of Terry McGinnis from Batman Beyond to go off of. He’s smaller than Batman and the Batsuit looks really cool on him with the red bat logo. It could easily be modified to be Robin’s new outfit. Also going along with that, Batman Beyond would be a great story to use in introducing Robin. They both have similar ways of meeting Batman except for the fact that not both of Terry’s parents were killed. I also think this would be a great way to end the Batman series in the future. Start out with Batman being old and retiring. It would be a great movie in my opinion.

Seeing all those criteria I listed for Robin, I can’t think of an actor that quite fits yet. Also Shia Labeouf can’t be Robin!. I hope nobody gets that idea in their head because although he can be anxsty, that is not all it takes to be a dark Robin. Also, I could never see him and Christian Bale hanging out. It would just make me laugh too much. That’s all for my current theories about the next Batman movie.

Not you too Iron Man

September 8, 2008 at 4:02 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

So all kinds of celebrities are whoring themselves out selling their time on eBay in order to support Stand Up to Cancer. The latest to join the crew is Robert Downey Jr. with a chance to meet the cast of Iron Man 2. If you win the eBay auction you get basically the same thing as the Spiderman auction. I did notice this disclaimer at the bottom of the page “Role and length of screen time to be determined by Marvel, and there can be no assurance that the role will appear in the final version of the film”-eBay. Personally, I think that whoever is willing to shell out the cash should at least get a guaranteed spot in the movie even if it was for 5 seconds. It doesn’t say anything like that on the Spiderman auction so does Iron Man 2 think it’s to good to let the winner in for a 5s spot?

I do think it would be more fun to talk with Robert Downey Jr. than Tobey Maguire though. I mean, he’s a pretty crazy guy from all the movies I’ve seen him in. Especially in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I can’t wait for Iron Man 2 seeing as how the first one was surprisingly good. I thought it was gonna be a dud for sure. Until then enjoy this chibi Iron Man!

I missed you Doc Connors!

September 8, 2008 at 12:18 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is what I get for taking Friday off! I just found out that Spiderman 4 and 5 have officially been signed onto by director Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire. There’s no word as of whether or not Kirsten Dunst has signed on yet but it would be no big loss to have to choose another redhead to fill the part. I’m good with a different Mary Jane since I was a big fan of the 1994 Spiderman tv series. She usually kicked Peter’s butt and got him to do stuff so it’d be a nice change of pace to see a girl do that to Tobey Maguire lol.

The better news is that people are starting to realize that you can’t make every superhero emo all the time. “…I’m told the filmmakers won’t be borrowing from the latest Batman installment because ‘Spider-Man is its own thing,’ one insider tells me. … The difference between Spider-Man and Batman is that Batman is duelling with a dark side of himself, and that’s not what Peter Parker’s struggle is. Peter Parker has no dark side himself. … Peter Parker’s struggle is about sacrifice.”-Nikki Finke’s Deadline Daily. Hooray! This means directors aren’t nearly as stupid as I was starting to believe. Also they’re trying to shoot 4 and 5 at the same time since it was so difficult to get everybody to sign back on. Smart thinking.

The best part of the news is the villain theories being thrown around. “Sony is taking its time officially hiring the movie’s villain since principal photography doesn’t start on Spider-Man 4 until next fall because of the recently postponed May 2011 release. I am told, however, that ‘once you find out who the villain is, you’ll know who’s playing it.'”-Nikki Finke’s Deadline Daily. People are definitely thinking Doc Connors is gonna transform into the lizard man for this movie. I would have to say that I’m really excited about the prospect of having him as the villain. I hope that the director would have to follow the actual Spidey storyline to get this to work out. If he did this, he’d have a plot for the 5th movie too (if you’ll remember how Spidey got all mutated and had 4 extra arms for awhile). Who saved him? Doc Connors! I’m going to need to find my sister’s paper mache lizard head and my mom’s old labcoat so I can run around in excitement (like I did when I used to watch the show).

Well I guess I’m giving you the worst news last but the good news above should outweigh it easily. Sony has hired some writers to start making Venom the movie. “Given that comic book artist/writer and action figure maker, Todd McFarlane, who is one of the creators of the Marvel villain, doesn’t think a Venom movie could do well with a villain as the central character,” I’m pretty sure Sony is going to regret their decision.-Nikki Finke’s Deadline Daily. Just because you have the costumes, it doesn’t mean you have to use them people. That’s like saying it was ok for Saban Entertainment (The people who made Power Rangers) to make The Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog just because they had the styrofoam monster suits lying around (all they did was spray paint them different colors anyway ๐Ÿ˜› ).

Want to meet Spidey IRL?

August 28, 2008 at 10:57 am (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The closest most of us will get to saying hi to Tobey Maguire

The closest most of us will get to meeting Tobey Maguire

Currently on ebay there’s an auction for a chance to visit the set of Spiderman 4. There’s not been a confirmation that the 4th film is actually going to be made but I guess they’d kind of have to admit to it after someone wins this auction. They can’t really just refund them and be like “just kidding!” Besides getting to see the set, you and your guest also get to meet the cast and talk with them for an hour. The winner her/himself gets an actual role in the movie. (I would have to guess that it’s a role similar to that of Stan Lee in all of the Spidey films.) Oh you also get to go to the New York premiere and walk the red carpet with your guest wearing designer outfits. That’s pretty cool.

You should make sure you’re 18 though because otherwise you have to be accompanied by a legal guardian. Chances of someone under that age having over $5,000 (since that’s what the auction is up to right now) is gonna be slim unless their parents bid for them anyways. Oh also everything is determined by Sony Pictures, just in case you missed that when you looked at the site lol. So if you want to spend a bunch of money on a vacation you don’t know when you’ll be taking or where specifically it will be, go ahead and bid. I would if I had that kinda money just laying around but alas I don’t. Sorry Christine you’ll have to wait for your super cool birthday/christmas present until another time ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Speaking of Spiderman 4, I hope Tobey Maguire signs on for it. I know he hurt his back and all but there are stunts doubles out there. I realize it’s not as cool if you don’t do your own stunts but Tobey is pretty good at being the dorky Peter Parker. Also, I saw Tropic Thunder last night and if you really want to see Tobey Maguire playing a funny role you should check out the fake trailer with him and Robert Downey Jr. I’ll try to post it later if I can find a good quality video.

Wait… what the?

July 25, 2008 at 8:58 am (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , )

Have you ever just clicked through imdb to see the odd movies and tv shows that actors have played in? Well thatโ€™s what I was doing and Iโ€™ve come up with a pretty good list. Some of the titles are just enough to make you laugh.

The Calcium Kid (2004)-Orlando Bloom as Jimmy Connelly
This isn’t even that old but I’ve never heard of it lol. It looks like an 80’s move from the picture.

Walker Texas Ranger episode โ€œThe Prodigal Sonโ€ (1994)- Tobey Maguire as Duane Parsons

No Dessert, Dad, Till You Mow the Lawn (1994)- James Marsden as Tyler Cochran
What a stupid sounding movie! Definitely check this link out but the picture is small so look close at the emo teenager, that’s him. ๐Ÿ™‚

Amistad (1997)- Anna Paquin as Queen Isabella II
I think it’s funny how she still looks exactly the same.

Thunderpants (2002)- Rupert Grint as Alan A. Allen and rumored Keira Knightley as a music school student

Pocahontas (1997)- Christian Bale as Thomas
He plays such a happy guy in this movie but he’s so emo now!

The Adventures of Tom Thumb & Thumbelina
(2002)- Elijah Wood as Tom Thumb
It amazes me how Elijah can be so creepy in Sin City and so happy in LOTR.
