    Raw quality.

    Seriously though the first film wasn't too great, and I was just being facetious. Ghost Rider can be pretty cool though so hopefully a sequel (or remake?) would be much better.

    I am the proverbial dark horse.

    And yeah I think the most important thing to do with Ghost Rider is really define the world, because he always felt a little jarring when put beside normal Marvel continuity and if they do go that way sorting that out is pretty important. Jason Aaron did a good job of that, we'll see how it goes in the new film.

    I was going to say that just having Cage's love interest be within 20 years of his age would be a nice little improvement. Then I remembered that it's being directed by the Crank guys so he probably will just have a posse of stripper nuns that he sets fire to once he's done boning them on his bike.

    A Taiwanese comic so it still counts.
    Official Plot Synopsis: Priest is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. Paul Bettany is Priest, a legendary warrior priest during the last Vampire War, who now lives in obscurity among the other human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities controlled by the Church. But when his 18-year-old niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires in the desolate wastelands outside, Priest breaks his sacred vows and ventures out to find her and seek vengeance upon those responsible, especially their brutal leader (Karl Urban). Priest is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend, Hicks (Cam Gigandet), a local outpost sheriff, and Priestess (Maggie Q), a member of his former legion of vampire-killers who has otherworldly fighting skills.

    Priest will hit theaters on May 13th 2011.
    Spoiler:

    Shame how this has absolutely nothing to do with the actual Priest manhwa (which is Korean, not Taiwanese) other than in name.

    I dunno, I take you seriously on some topics and dick rider is your profession

    The element demons was silly, but I thought it looked pretty cool. I have no idea how true it was to the Ghost Rider character, but what is there besides Flaming Skull, Chain Whip, Kick Ass?

    I actually liked Daniel Way's Ghost Rider run up till his last arc which honestly was really damn awful. I'd recommend getting the first 3 volumes of Way's run, skipping the 4th, and then Aaron's excellent 4 volume run starts.

    It wasn't a spectacular failure, it just wasn't a good movie. I always want to like a movie based on a comic, I went to see this in the theatre.

    The lame parts I remember include all the elemental demons being incredibly easy for GR to defeat. I don't think any of those fights lasted more than 10 seconds. Also the old man/cowboy Ghost Rider, who appears, rides across the desert with GR and then just leaves...wut? It just wasn't visually interesting enough to make up for the terrible script. At least in Wolverine I could vaguely enjoy some references to characters I knew.

    I thought Ghost Rider was more of urban Spectre, passing judgement on people.

    Making them look into his eyes to see their soul or something (all I know about GR comes from the times he showed up in DD's book, and that time he became a Brood in Jim Lee's X-Men run with Gambit).

    edit: how good was Sam Elliott in the movie? Was it tails?

    I say this in every comic book movie thread, but I wish there were more high budget animated comic book movies. Think of things that could be done-- Paul Pope's Adam Strange thing from Wednesday comics, we3, Seven Soldiers, an Inhumans/f4 movie by Pixar, ... and the budget could be dedicated to making the movie awesome, instead of a figuring out a way to make someone more famous or whatever.

    Comic Book movies and animation, sadly, in Hollywood, are made for two completely different audiences

    I think we3 by Pixar would just emotionally cripple anyone that watched it.

    I just don't think any of the studios that you'd want to see making a general release comic book animated adaptation would bother using licensed material. It's not as though Pixar or Disney will give a crap if you tell them that this comic sold thousands of copies. Comic numbers are a complete joke to them and they already have in house idea machines.

    Any chance Nolan's going to drop some Batman 3 details in Comic-Con?

    Did you read the info about it shooting in April next year?

    Thats all I know about it so far, I figure we might get a villain drop. It only serves to sadden me again about Ledgers loss, I would've loved to see the taking Joker to trial rumoured plot.

    I'm just hoping Joker at least gets an honorable mention, not just "oh he's locked up now". Maybe make a comment about how Arkham therapists won't go near him or some-such foreboding.

    I just continue to hope that Steve Schirripa gets cast as Harvey Bollock.

    He's absolutely perfect for the role, and with Batman on the run from police, it's the perfect moment to drop him in.

    The next Batman film will be forever tainted by the thought of what it could have been had we not lost Ledger.

    I'll still see it day 1, of course.

    Indeed. Nolan's Batman is awesome because its a universe, villains don't just disappear (Unless they're temp-dead), they carry over, they do their own thing which might only be minor to the overall plot but they're there, they're living and breathing and for a first encounter between Bats and the Joker, TDK was a brilliant experience.

    3 will be good, but it will never be what it could've been with at minimum a likely cameo from the Joker.

    The Los Angeles Times apparently published a fantastic new still of the Thor movie. It's a scene from Odin's throne room, notable for showing both Odin and Loki with their helmets on.
    Spoiler:

    Additionally, I just love the set design. It's so... Frank Frazetta-esque. Like the fusion of 50's sci-fi and high fantasy.

    I don't wanna kill anybody. I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from.

    It's strange how, despite not minding at all that Loki didn't have that ridiculous helmet in the film, when I saw that image of him wearing it I went "squeee!"

    It is just that ridiculous that it becomes awesome.

    I couldn't help but feel like Inception was a try-out for Joseph Gordon Levitt to play the Joker. Honestly, I would have no problem with that. Have him be locked up and maybe have Gordon mention that the Joker has been fucking with the psychiatric help in Arkham by continuously shifting his personality - maybe even have him perform some do-it-yourself surgery on himself. This would allow for a different take on the character from another actor.

    Not going to happen, Nolan said Joker won't be back now. Its a hard choice because Id love to see him again but I understand why he won't be.

    Nolan has stated numerous times that the Joker won't be played by anyone else.

    Which doesn't mean that he won't be referred to in the third movie, just that no other actor is going to take the role. I'm fine with that really, because whether it would be an attempt to continue the cohisive story or whatever, you can't escape the whiff of bad taste.

    And that Thor is pic is great. I like that they show Odin's ravens.

    I haven't seen Ghost Rider yet, and it is queued in my Netflix. I'm expecting a pretty high level of suck.

    Ghost Rider should be a hard R to really pull off the spirit of the comics correctly.
