    If this happens, it's the worst news of the decade ..for anything.

    Sucks that fanboys hate facts, like Ratner wanting Matthew Bomer (who went on to become a big TV star from White Collar) for Superman when everyone else wanted the lazy, go-to choice Brendan Fraser. Or that Matthew Vaughn made all the key decisions on X-Men: The Last Stand (casting new roles, working on the story with the writers, picking all the locations) then bailing weeks before filming started.

    Not a huge Ratner fan but the dude is far from the hack he's labeled by braindead fanboys who can't have an opinion of their own. :whatever: indeed.

    Im starting to think these sources are ********. But, if they settle with Ratner when you have the likes of the Wachowski's, Fleischer, Cuaron, Bird, etc to choose from? This movie deserves to fail if that's the case. What's scary is a guy like Ratner would probably jump at the chance to do it before any of the others. That **** is scary lol.

    The only movie i recall liking from him was the first Rush Hour, for comedic reasons obviously. He's the opposite of what they should be looking after, it doesnt take a braindead fanboy to think that.

    There's that condescending tone again.
    Where the hell is any of this from?
    Who hated that Ratner wanted Bomer?
    And no one wanted Fraser as Superman.
    Vaughn pulled out of X3 for two reasons; family issues, and Fox being difficult. Ratner edited out good parts of Vaughn's treatment and added stupid ****. It's well documented. All throughout the X3 forums.
    Not sure why you're being so *****ey, regarding how some fans have their opinions of Ratner being a hack.

    While there are plenty of his movies that I don't neccesarily hate, absolutely none of them would I say I like. So for me, it would be bad news. Regardless of any fan related noise about his past superhero movies.

    The only movie of Ratner's that I didn't find to be a piece of crap was Red Dragon, and even that movie I'd hesitate to say was anything more than mediocre.

    My tone has never been condescension to another poster, it always has been to the actor, director, writer, topic at hand.

    For a mod, you sure behave like a troll that would be probationary banned within a day for how much you insult posters.

    This. I was one of the few who enjoyed X-Men 3 despite its flaws and questionable story decisions (some of it was Vaughn's and some was Ratner's). Ratner directed the very competent Red Dragon and I enjoyed the first Rush Hour. I think Ratner can direct well -- it's all contingent on the script he's working with.

    I'd be fine with him directing, personally.

    The guy directed perhaps from my favourite music video when i was a kid, and i enjoyed the first Rush Hour back then but how is that good for Justice League where he has to handle Batman and perhaps Nolan/Snyders Superman? It's a disaster. Im just going to believe this is a joke or stupid rumors. I bet over the next 2 months there will be reports of every director across the board, and how theyve been looked into for the job.

    I don't mind those movies, either, but I don't think he'd be right for JL.

    Pretentious, though you're right about Ratner.

    What's with everyone only liking the first Rush Hour? I think the second one was funny too. The third wasn't as good, though.

    I guess I'm one of the few who thought the first Rush Hour sucked enough that I never needed to see another one.
