FirstShowing.net has fueled the hype for Marvel’s future movie slate by posting about rumors that the studio is gunning to get Leonardo DiCaprio to step into the shoes of Captain America for the still-far-out 2011 tentpole, The First Avenger: Captain America.
Honestly, I think he’s a good fit for the role, if it’s true. It’s going to be interesting to see who Marvel picks, because the hype is already building after all the hints and winks The Incredible Hulk threw out for the film. There’s even rumors that he was cut out of The Incredible Hulk…or was at least supposed to show up in some capacity.
He never does show up….they just mention the serum, and a little nod to World War II when they first tested it on a soldier….Heck, they even refer to Tim Roth as a “super soldier”, which is exactly what they called the Captain America prototype before he took the Captain America name.
I’m a sucker for comic book movies, and I’m glad Marvel is self-containing and interweaving all of their movies. It’s a good step toward making them their own films….I just hope Captain America can compare to Iron Man, because no other summer movie has lived up to the hype like it did…
Let the speculation run wild until whenever Marvel finds their next big star….I’m already psyched!
I’m what seems to be one of a very small portion of people who are eager to see this week’s The Incredible Hulk. I’m really hoping that it’s a hit for Marvel after the disaster that was Hulk back in 2004.
I guess what’s obvious from this is that this weekend’s box office take for the film could be substantially hampered by the bad taste in everyone’s mouth from Ang Lee’s drama-filled disaster on the first try.
I personally am keeping the bar low, although I’m still getting more excited as the day nears. I’ve heard rumblings that it’s just as good as Iron Man, which, if true, really is saying something. Iron Man started off summer right, and has been one of my favorite movies of the year (not just comic book inspired either).
Hopefully word of mouth helps this one out, although it’s got a lot of competition, seeing as there’s a big release every week until the end of the summer movie season in early August.
Fingers crossed that it’s good…Look for reactions here after I see it.
Anyone else planning on seeing The Incredible Hulk this week? Thoughts?
So I saw Iron Man last night at midnight, and let me just say it is by far a much better way to start off a summer movie season than Spiderman 3 was last summer.
Robert Downey Jr. was made to play the role of Tony Stark, and despite how the suits don’t play a role until almost halfway through the movie, it still is easily one of the best superhero movies that has been made.
There’s a great blend of action, comedy, drama and suspense, with just the right touches at just the right moments to keep you involved. And there was also a lot of cheering, because some of the effects are just downright awesome and mind-blowing.
I can’t say anymore than to just go out and experience this for yourself. It’s going to be huge, and you’ll witness the first entry in what’s going to be a very fun franchise if they keep this up.
Trailer note: There is an Indy 4 trailer attached to this, and yes, it is amazing, awesome, and everything I wanted it to be…..Can’t wait until an official version makes its way online!
/Film has the new trailer up for The Incredible Hulk, and I think I was totally in the second I saw the Hulk using demolished wreckage (cars, I think) as boxing gloves.
This one just moved up a notch on my anticipated list….Hulk smash!!!
Go here to choose what version to watch.
Looks like the perfect summer blockbuster event! Can this week get any better than it already has been?
Needless to say, the towering image of the Hulk hovering over Ed Norton’s Bruce Banner is an awesome sight. I don’t care he’s facing back-to-back…I just think it’s cool.
I know there’s still a lot of complaining about how fake the CGI looks on the Hulk, but all that aside, I think this could shape up to be a huge blockbuster this summer….These underdogs always seem to do well, and I know there are plenty of people out there who want to see The Incredible Hulk perform well.
