Default The Official "Who is the man in black?" - Oliver Platt Thread

So who is The Man In Black - well we know two things, firstly that he is a non-mutant and secondly he is played by Oliver Platt...

So who is the man in black?

I think - Dr.Nathaniel Essex - techically he isnt a mutant but he did mutate himself.

You just said it's obvious Hellfire Club is involved and that Platt is Harry Leland.

I like Oliver Platt but i'm wondering how many freaking people are they going to cast!

I'm guessing a good number of them will have really small roles possibly.

i figure there will be Hmmm 50 big names LOL

na i think what there doing is mixing a few big names with a few mid name actors/actresses and to make this a whole bigger universe than we have previously seen.

Erm, that is the WORST site for Superhero news.

And in this case, the report is from Deadline, so why not source deadline?

Marvel had better secure the copyright to the name/character first.. they messed up with the Whistler character in the Blade films-- David Goyer created the character from scratch, and so when the New Line bought the script, New Line Cinema technically owns him, and they threatened to sue Marvel when the character was used in the 90s Spider-Man cartoon show.. Goyer convinced them to back off.. but the character is 'off-limits' in the comics... oh, well...

What if he is really playing Beast, and the previous confirmed Beast actor (forget his name?) is really playing somebody else? I mean wasn't Beast always older than the other mutants anyways? Just a hunch, I dunno. Platt has Hank written all over him... </conspiracy theory>

yeah i'm not too worried about too many cast members, at least their getting talented people. plus, not every important character needs to have thirty minutes of screen time thrown at them.
