    September 2, 2013 10:38 am Thanks a lot for everything... It is a great place, a great community and hopefully all will continue one way or another because the relationships, friendships, camaraderie that were develop here, will proof to be true and stand the test of time. Good luck and see you all around.
    August 29, 2013 8:34 pm Ahh, I see. I expected as much when they made official the name for the sequel (Age of Ultron) but like I said above, I'm a little disappointed about that because the wait for Thanos will be too long, so just hope as a consolation prize that his not-official part in GotG and maybe an additional cameo in A2:AoU is something meaty to get everyone excited for the whole thing in Avengers 3. P.S.: Who expect to see Hank Pym, at least a cameo or very small role in Avengers 2, besides me? I think it will be the wise move to make, because the character is not as popular as others for the not-fanboy audience that go to the movies, which they are the majority, and having him just appear for the first time in his solo film could be risky in my opinion.
    August 29, 2013 4:37 pm First of all... Wow, is very interesting the contrast in the reactions to the recent casting news. I'm a fan of James Spader and think this will turn out great. It sounds like a very well fit. But I have a question... What about poor old Thanos? It will be a little disappointing if we don't see him do something in Avengers 2.
    August 27, 2013 9:55 am Great bonus question, so many cool possibilities. BQ: Supernatural / Buffy - The interaction between should be great, Dean flirting all season with Buffy, just to end in Purgatory and then comeback to find her and Sam hook up, and then later on, she will end up with a real angel, Castiel! Fringe / Breaking Bad - The two Walters should be the best of friends ever, one love to get high and the other make the most wonderful meth ever! Hannibal / Dexter - That should be interesting... There's not enough room for two serial killers in one town or is it? They could become killers buddies!
    August 26, 2013 4:45 pm I partially agree and disagree at the same time. It's true that is very important to have a good material to work with, and a good production and director but also a great actor can (in my opinion) salvage to some degree, a bad/mediocre script and production. Again, in my opinion, an example of that is Terminator 4: Salvation (sorry if anyone liked that) For me it was a mess and the story they told just focused in trying to relaunch the franchise and forgot to capture the essence of the Terminator films. But the performance of Christian Bale, made the movie passable and even enjoyable in a few parts of it, for me.
    August 23, 2013 3:38 pm Well, it appears that everyone forgot about the year 2005 and the Elektra film, by Fox if I recall correctly. A few people said that no studio had done a solo female superhero movie but there's Elektra. So I think Marvel just don't see the need to make one because, for the grand story they are telling, they don't have a lead female superhero character to be part of the telling, for now, but perhaps that could change in Phase 3 and they could use Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) after a slight introduction in Avengers 2... anyone? And for DC, I think they are being too cautious about it, fearing a potential bad outcome if not done right.
    August 23, 2013 12:13 pm I think the major issue with this casting is that too many people, myself included, don't quite see Affleck as a good fit for the character, is just that simple. He may surprise us all, true, but right know we are not sold into the idea. He has come up to be a great director and recently a decent actor but I rather see him as a new Hal Jordan or even Barry Allen but not Bruce Wayne. Lets see if DC's gamble pay up, because that is what they are doing. It's a gamble, "sacrificing" a major character role for having him direct supposedly Justice League, or perhaps something else, a stand alone Batman movie after JL, maybe?
    August 23, 2013 10:15 am WOW that caught everyone by surprise and certainly no one knows what to make of it. Definitely he has been a great director and I can see the interest from the DC office to have him direct one of their movies, as an actor he recently have deliver good performances but I agree, for the life of me, I can't see him as Batman. P.S.: I don't see him as Batman and many others either, but he may surprise us all, tho.
