Geek Rant

It’s been an interesting week for movie news.

First, prescription a “leaked” promotional photo for X-Men: First Class was put up on MSN and then promptly pulled after the director saw it and freaked out. I’m not hyped up about this movie. I think the X-men franchise needs to disappear. (I know, illness I know, viagra sale this coming from a Marvel fan). But, really, they messed up X-3, and then destroyed Wolverine (and massacred Deadpool in the process). I’m not hitching my wagon to the X-men movie, I’ll gear up for the Avengers instead.

Then, Chris Nolan announced that he has cast his villains for the next installment of Batman: Bane and Catwoman. All I can say is that they better do Bane better than they did in Batman and Robin.

And then today, I got the horrible, horrible, awful, devastating, want-to-rip-my-hair-out news that Hollywood has hired a writer to re-boot the Lethal Weapon series. No. No. No. Very bad. No touching the Lethal Weapon series!

/ so ends my rant.

  • Hate to break it to you , but here in the USA, because January Jones of Mad Men will be on the X-Men film, you can rest assured it will have at least a good first weekend.

  • Well the director has gone on record saying that he is “aiming” for a character-driven story. Here’s hoping that is the case. Maybe he’ll focus on the Xavier/Magneto story line and all the other mutants will be secondary.
