    I hope it's basically just Hulk: Ultimate Destruction: The Movie.

    Lamp post beatings! Wrecking balls thrown at helicopters! No one caring about innocent bystanders!

    Man Tim Roth walking up to the Hulk after Hulk just smashed the shit out of all of that stuff, and then getting punted a mile was funny.

    That's pretty crazy

    Even Batman Begins didn't get that high a rating

    Yes, because it looks pretty cool. Like, Hulk Ultimate Destruction cool.

    Having played it, I can unequivocally say that you are wrong.

    What exactly is wrong with it? Because the trailer for it looked pretty good.

    Game trailers really can't accurately portray how it plays, though. If I wasn't so wrapped up in GTA IV right now, I'd download the demo.

    So does anyone think the abomination serum is going to be linked to Cap at all?

    I'm pretty sure at NY Comic-Con they mentioned how the serum was blue and white, which was intentional.

    Besides that, dunno.

    I still hope it ends like this:
    Hulk beats the hell out of Abomination and reverts to Banner. The military surrounds him and he's just about to Hulk out again when a dart hits him in the neck and he blacks out. He wakes up in some hotel room in Bangladesh or somewhere and has no fucking idea how he got there. A phone goes off in his pocket.

    "Hello?"
    "Dr. Banner? This is General Nick Fury. We need to talk."

    Well we know it's going to happen, Zak Penn's been writing a script and Marvel is beginning to interweave their movies just for that purpose. Downey said he would be up for it and Favreau said he'd love to direct it.

    Nonononono, his original draft was 300 mill, Marvel told him to cut it down to 150. A bunch of people thing that the original was intentionally high to get them to okay the 150 mill version.

    Despite my love for Thor, I'm not sure how much I could stand listening to ye olde talk for an entire movie.

    However, if it's one step closer to an Avengers movie, I will readily accept it.

    I highly doubt it would be in Middle English. Vaughn wants to do a myth-based movie instead of a superhero one, so I'd expect a LotR-style thing with Thor being bound to Donald Blake on Earth at the end.

    A lot of writers hate it, my favorite stab at it had to be by Gaiman in 1602. Thor was the only character from the era that didn't speak Ye Olde English.

    That's sort of inaccurate.

    Moreso with Ultimates 3.

    But yeah, I personally like the idea of Thor being a total jerk who's bound to Donald Blake as punishment.

    I meant him being more down-to-earth. I stopped reading Ultimates 3 after issue 1, so I really can't comment about that.

    OK, I just got back from seeing Iron Man and Oh My Fuck was it awesome. And for the love of God, stay through the credits because
    Nick Fuckin Fury played by Sam L. Fuckin Jackson shows up and tells Stark about the "Avenger Initiative". A "Holy Shit" moment if there ever was one.

    When the first trailers of Iron Man were shown (with the predictable move of using "Iron Man" in the trailer), I scoffed. I thought it looked like shit. But as new clips and trailers have slowly trickled out, I've found it looking slightly better. Maybe in the area of Spider-Man 1 or something like that.

    But a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes? Best reviewed wide release film of the year so far? Can't say I was expecting that. I'll see it this weekend...but I'm still cautious about it sucking.

    Iron Man is basically awesome. It also features the best Stan Lee cameo of all time.

    Also, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a massive success financially. Which opens a lot of doors for Marvel. And if the Hulk movie does even half as well as this does, I think we're going to see some great Marvel comics movies down the line. Shit, I think this singe-handedy justifies Marvel's move to self-producing movies.
