The Hulk has his villain

leave a comment »

Interesting scoop….

Tim Roth, AKA the evil ape from the remake of Planet of the Apes (the Burton movie), has been cast as a villain in The Incredible Hulk.

I don’t know much about Hulk villains, but he’s going to play Abomination, who apparently is an ex-KGB agent that exposes himself to higher doses of gamma rays than Bruce Banner, so he doesn’t mosey between human and alter-ego form.

For some reason, I continue to be more and more excited for this installment in The Hulk….Hopefully a teaser trailer this summer perhaps?

A look at Iron Man

leave a comment »

USA Today has a cool article up talking about how the role of Tony Stark in next summer’s Iron Man and how actor Robert Downey Jr., who’ll don the red and gold suit, relates to the role.

It’s a pretty good article, and there’s also a nice teaser shot of Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) working on a prototype armor suit.

I’m pretty excited for this one next summer, particularly because Iron Man has some of the best color combos of any of the superheroes….

A look at the new and improved Dr. Doom

leave a comment »

I’m not sure how long the photo I just found of the updated Dr. Doom in this summer’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer has been available, but I’m impressed by the new look.

Here’s the link to FirstShowing.net…..(Scroll down once you’re there)

The one thing I still don’t like is the look of the mouth.  By the looks of it, his mouth again will not movie when he talks….That just bugs me.

Remember all the old school Transformers cartoons….Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, has no mouth, but yet it still moves around when he talks…..Why can’t the people who did Fantastic Four realize this?

Now, I’ve never seen the comic books or cartoons, but does his mouth ever seem to move?  Or am I just being picky about this?

Last time I checked….

The Hulk was green…..FirstShowing.net has details up from an interview with Avi Arad that has sparked rumors the green-meanie may actual be, well……grey….

I’m still looking forward to this film and all, but when I think Hulk, I think green and purple…flat-out, I bet a good chunk of people picture green and purple.

I’d have to say, I might be a little disappointed about the color, if he really turns out to be grey, but you still can’t help but be excited to see how this turns out…Edward Norton is a great casting for the film!

Spiderman 3….Will it knock out Pirates?

leave a comment »

I’ve noticed a lot of searching for box-office predictions for Spiderman 3, which is out in, hard to believe, just under 3 weeks.

Over at HSX, they’ve got a price on it that indicates people are thinking it will be in the $117 million range….

Me, personally, I think that it should open to easily $125 million….It may be the closest we ever see a film make it to breaking the Pirates 2 record of $135 million…..

Who knows…considering I think Spiderman 2 would hold the record if it had opened on a Friday, I’d say anything is possible at this point. Just expect Pirates 3 to be right behind at the end of May……

It’s gonna be a good summer!

And the person playing the Hulk is…..

Edward Norton?!?

I totally didn’t see this casting coming.  There’d been rumors of David Duchovny and Dominic Purcell….not once had I read Edward Norton.

I’m actually not disappointed, and think he can fill the role in nicely.  Apparently the article will run tomorrow in Variety…..

This movie does have some potential, especially if all this hoopla about it being “the Hulk movie we really wanted to see” is true….As opposed to the first outing…which was a decent try, but was a major letdown.

We’ll see how the people take this one….I’m guessing they’ll “smash” it up!
