There was a Rhino in the ASM game, He was a literal rhino who became a Man-Rhino thing and got semi intelligence.
Though I can see the def appeal of Rhino for a movie, since really he's probably one the easier "Known Foes" that they can change to suit their whims.
I get them making Rhino a animal-powered mutant like the Lizard. Between Lizard and Spider-Man's powers, plus looming Osborn as the villain, they're probably gonna tie all the enemies Spidey faces together as coming from this one source. The lesser villains all get their powers from a serum that grants the evolved abilities of various animals, while Osborn (if they go the Ultimate Green Goblin route) gets the evolved abilities of himself.
It should be fine. Singer never lets me down on X-men. It's only super-heroes that he's a fan of that he messes up re: Superman. That said, the bar's been raised by Whedon's Avengers and Vaughn's First Class.
I suppose Clea would be the love interest.
That said, if Days of Future Past is as good as First Class, I'll still be pretty happy.
The first movie should be easy. It's the sequels that are hard. But I only know the basics of Dr. Strange series, I'm sure there enough material to make a good trilogy.
Oh, the sequel should be easy for Dr. Strange, there's a particular classic story arc, The Shuma Gorath saga, that would be perfect for it. No, I'm actually more concerned about the first Strange movie. There's a lot of weird ground to cover and powers to define, and I'm not sure what the solution to some of the questions I outlined above are. And I didn't even mention the question of Wong.
Haven't read that.
I disagree. His origin is simple to show and reveal magic along the way. The Ancient One teaching Strange and Mordo the basics should be enough to get the audience caught up on how it works. Baldwin's The Shadow did this perfectly.
They can change Wong to have a logical reason to be there. He doesn't need to be his butler.
"We got trouble, Doc-ta Strange!"
But... but that's why we liked him in the first place... that's why he's crazy popular...
My hatred of X-men 1 and 2 are well known by this point.
I am worried.
I don't know that I'd particularly agree. For one, it ends before he's actually graduated from The Ancient One's tutelage. It's a fun story, don't get me wrong, but it's not the origin story of Dr. Strange; it's just an adventure he happened to have during his training.
Still, turning Wong into one of his peers is a logical way to introduce the character.
Have Strange be on the verge of becoming the Sorcerer Supreme and make it clear he is the Ancient One's chosen successor, and then have him be thrust into the role in a sequel.
Edit: hmmm.. I'm being watched.
Geth likes you. :winky:
Fn fact: The late Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska (Aka the "series of tubes" guy) was a big Hulk fan.
I think it would be perfectly acceptable to do the first one like Batman Begins. Strange studying magic can't seem to be inevitable after his accident, but once he does meet the Ancient One you can montage the shit out of his training because magic!. Then in the second and third acts he's confronted with his challenge and eventual victory. End credit visit by Nick Fury and/or Tony Stark (being snarky as shit about magic despite being friends with a god).
I don't mind that quote. It starts off giving some assurance that this won't be another rip off of the Donner films which can only be a good thing. It's a bit dismissive of the idealist qualities of Superman but I think he is more referencing the idealist world Superman lived in during the Donner films rather than Superman himself.
The world's reaction to Superman and maybe not being super psyched about him doesn't sound like a terrible idea. Plus the trailer has been out for awhile and we kinda already knew this information and it seemed to play out well in the trailer. Of course trailers can't be trusted but I'll give the story a chance.
They will have to spend some time beyond just a montage on his training. Strange's powers are extensive, and for the action to have much tension it'll be important for the audience to know what he is and isn't capable of.
And, yeah, I don't think it'll be hard to distinguish Stephen from Tony because let's face it, Stark is going to be immediately dismissive and cavalier about all of the magical rules and inter-dimensional agreements that Strange has to follow/defend/enforce/etc. Dr. Strange also makes sense to be involved through SHIELD. After some major run-ins with gods and having to rely in part on gods, the U.S. government is going to want some non-proprietary defense systems, i.e. the human Sorceror Supreme.
Ooh ooh ooh. Wong is a magician himself, no? It makes sense that Strange can't exactly by SHIELD's Assistant Director of Magic and Supernatural Activities because of some inter-dimensional compact or duty as the Sorceror Supreme. But Wong could be, so when he's not hanging out with Strange he's the boss over the government's magicians, psychics, and various occult researchers and specialists.
Goddamn it. Someone get me an agent. I have this movie written in my head.
They are both ladies men with rocking facial hair who are highly intelligent and kinda smarmy.
Strange has silver streaks in his hair.
Or they can just replace him with Dr. Voodoo.
The franchise needs to move past the Donner movies. That isn't all Superman's mythology should be defined by.
