    Iron Man looks to wipe the taste of Adolph Stark out of my mouth come next year.

    Which is funny cause in the movie it looks like Tony's still a dick, he's just the right kind of dick.

    "People are calling you the Divinci of our times, what do you say to that?"
    "Totally ridiculous, I don't paint."
    "Well what about you're other nickname, the Merchant of Death?"
    "That one's not bad."

    Posting here to put my vote in for this thread :P

    Honestly, only Dark Knight intrigues me the slightest, and I still need to watch Batman Begins. Slow few years for super hero movies for the next few years I think.

    Also - is there any word on any more Hellboy: Animated movies?

    30 Days of Night hasn't seen much mention here. Is it because everyone agrees that Josh Hartnett is horribly miscast, and that the original story isn't that great to begin with (aside from the art, which is interesting)?

    I'd cast Nathan Fillion. Every small town sheriff in the world is Nathan Fillion.

    Not as far as I know.

    However, the Hellboy II script was leaked, and the review I read called it fantastic.

    Plus, Neil Gaiman has been helping out a bit.

    i hope its good and that it sparks a relaunch of the teen titans animated series. for some odd reason, i love that show. maybe it has something to do with Raven's stern, obstinant insistance on never wearing pants...

    Those last few seasons with the Brotherhood of Evil were so good. The Brain and Monsieur Mallah are the kind of off-beat villains I'd never expect to see on television, despite desperately wanting to.

    I'm trying to think of what roster is gonna be used in the Avengers movie.

    Iron Man, Cap and Thor are all but confirmed.

    Ant-Man's likely.

    I'm betting Luke Cage or Black Panther will be added for ethnicity, which isn't bad because both are awesome.

    Wanda and Pietro could work if they are introduced in Magneto's origin movie. I pray to god Hawkeye's in it, and the Vision seems kinda likely.

    Flash, Wonder Woman and Iron Fist I'm almost certain aren't.

    Iron Man has already finished principal photography, and thus has had more time to be worked on in post. TDK is still filming and involves alot less CG.

    I like how the terrorists are shooting Iron Man with machine guns but the bullets are just bouncing off. Then when he gets his arm stuck one guy walks up and shoots him with a hand gun, like that one bullet is going to make a difference.

    I'd kind of like to see the dude who played Nathan Petrelli from Heroes to be Namor. He's pretty ripped and could probably bulk up even more for the role, can easily play a likeable asshole, and he's got those very intense, crazy eyes that would suit Namor. He may be a little short for it though.

    But I thought there were rumors going around a while back that they might use The Rock, and since he's basically Black Adam, who is basically (physically) Namor, that wouldn't be a bad choice either. And he's a pretty decent actor.

    Brandon Molale actually looks like Marvel. But having never seen anything he's been in, I can't comment on his acting chops.

    He's playing Black Adam in Shazam! so he'll be busy.

    I'm not sure if that was just rumored. I know he was cast, can't remember if they confirmed the role.
