That's exactly what I thought lol. Putting that way, the Planet Hulk is 'un-debunkable'... Until 2015.

Three, it would mean half-nekkid women, meaning half-nekkid Gamora would be a lot more likely now. And four, it would mean "Heaven" exists in the MCU, since Angela is a bounty hunter for The Big Guy Upstairs. Imagine how well *that* will go over with the religious right.
Stardust and Coraline were pretty good

can't say anything for Stardust but Coraline is top notch! That being said I don't want Angela anywhere near this.

Did Feige really ban LR from Marvel stuff because of Eh Maybe's crap?

Heh... lookit Feige going all on them. EM is such an attention wh*** too. Serves him right! He's kind of had a bug up his butt about Marvel movies recently too, LOL!

Speaking of Eh Maybe, earlier he tweeted about his discovery that Feige and his... agents are responsible for Man of Steel's weird Rotten Tomatoes score.

That's so silly. Feige even rooted for Green Lantern, why would he want MoS to fail? Every successful genre film opens the door to more superhero movies. Mayimbe has lost it big time... if he ever had it at all.

What the hell does that even mean?! Isn't RT owned by WB, the studio that produced said MoS???

I sincerely hope that is a joke on El Meh's part, because 1) I doubt Feige cares what MoS is doing on RT he's too busy running a movie studio, and 2) the critic's grades are based on the critic's reviews, like they're the one's who determine whether a movie is rotten or fresh.

On another note, I would like whatever El Meh's smoking right now.

ETA: I read his feed and it's coming across as a joke, albeit one where you can clearly see that EM holds a grudge against Feige and MS for banning him. Too funny, all bluster, but not much else to back it up.

I liked the one where he was outraged because Marvel didn't let one of his LR pals into the Iron Man screening with his kids. "Now they're going after kids!" I didn't know it was your right to attend a screening.

I don't think it's that. I kinda feel bad that the site as a whole is suffering because of one writer's stupidity.

Yep. If anything, WB should be trying to go for foul play and give it a higher rating... Feige also said in an interview that MoS looks awesome and he can't wait to see it

He represents the site and supposedly, he's actually co-owner of the site.

Yeah, but still it's his fault (mainly) that LR has been banned from Marvel screenings and that the site is getting a really ****** rep amongst bloggers, journos and readers.

I remember Da7e broke the news that IM3 would be based on Extremis and a lot of other stuff that was right. LR is decent it's just he's dragging down their rep

Yeah. Feige and Co. are kind of screwed if the moviegoing public starts getting fatigued with superhero movies LOL! It's to his benefit that MoS does well, and the competition between studios helps drive a real CBM renaissance, with each studio one-upping the other in quality.

This and his really petty/hostile tweeting against Marvel and Feige and Co. (because he's all butthurt about getting banned) really turned me off and I unfollowed him and dropped out of his newsletter mailing list.

Just like the WB conspiracy to lower Thor, Cap and Avengers scores? Ugh, what a moron.

I am going to play devil's advocate here for a moment. It is often stated that all studios' superhero films will benefit if all CBMs are good, high quality products. However, if superhero fatigue is setting in* then wouldn't it be better for the genre if fewer films were produced? Failed franchise efforts weed out competition for the audience's attention and dollars, staving off fatigue by lowering the number of CBMs released in successive years. The survivors would be left with potentially greater enthusiasm from an audience that has fewer CBM alternatives clamoring for their attention.

TL;dr - When a CBM fails it benefits the better films by eliminating future competition and lowering the fatigue factor. Fewer, better films makes for a stronger genre.


* I don't by the "fatigue" theory at all. Good films that are well-marketed will usually find their audience.

Yea, I don't even really consider CBM's or superhero films a genre. Make a good movie, market it on a compelling/interesting hook and people will turn out, CBM or not. Simple as that.

On El Mayimbe... geez! Previously, I just thought of him as a poor writer and pompous jerk. Now, it actually seems like he's slowly and steadily unraveling, mentally.

John C. Reilly Firmed For Ronan The Accuser Role In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Quote:
I can confirm that John C. Reilly will play Ronan ‘The Accuser’ Dey in Marvel Studios’ Guardians Of The Galaxy, the James Gunn-directed franchise launch that stars Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, and Michael Rooker. Ronan comes from the planet Hala in the Kree Empire, and he is the Kree equivalent as the badass-inest juror and military governor in space.

He first surfaced in the Marvel Comics in Fantastic Four, as a bad guy, and he possesses superhuman strength, endurance, speed and reflexes, shielded by an exoskeleton armor suit can make him invisible. He also wields the “universal weapon,” which looks like Thor’s hammer, only cooler. The other intriguing thing about Ronan is that in some versions of the comics, he is the son of Thanos, also known as the Avatar of Death. Thanos has been incorporated into The Avengers and will be in Guardians Of The Galaxy. That is an easy way to mix the two franchises and allow the characters to show up in all different Marvel movies, so don’t be surprised if Reilly becomes a staple of Marvel Studios fare. Reilly’s repped by WME and Peg Donegan.

The fact Deadline calls him that, and HitFix said his character would be Rhomann Dey is very strange and interesting

I did a cartwheel when I saw Ronan was in it, then I just read that I realised Deadline may've *****ed up.

If he's combining characters, then Ronan could potentially be the leader of the Nova Corps...
