    I don't. I love when pieces of crap expose themselves.

    Please, don't tell Bryan Singer that you love seeing him expose himself.

    Don't worry, I am legal. He has no interest in that.

    If he is really gone, could we then maybe get this god damn thing going now.
    Damn, im in desperate need for such a movie...they already waste way too much time doing nothing with the King Conan movie.
    I need some barbaric, hard hitting action movie with swords and s***.

    Except it clearly wasn't. It took literally no one willing to distribute the movie for this ******* to drop Singer.

    His name being on it after these past couple years was kind of a poison.

    So, the studio really wanted to work with this human garbage, but had to fire him because they couldnt get the film out. Not exactly a great reason for me to support the film now.

    However, go nuts with this...just full on out there fantasy. Someone earlier suggested Panos Cosmatos...that sounds crazy enough to work.

    I figured they'd go with a female for this one. Guys write Red Sonja as a pretty progressive character but she could easily fall into fanservice territory.

    It makes sense for a woman to direct. It made no sense at all for Bryan Singer of all people to direct.

    Now we better not get anyone like Ruby Rose as Red Sonja.

    And probably getting a paltry amount compared to Singer.

    Casting call: Extra tall ladies of a certain age - e.g., Ireland Baldwin, Elizabeth Debicki, etc.? :shrug:

    And if the character has red hair, I suppose that means the Caucasian persuasion? :shrug:

    I don't think she has to be super tall. Elizabeth Debicki is 6'3". Whoever plays Red Sonja could be as tall as Gal Gadot at 5'10".

    Should she be young in her early 20s, or more established and in her 30s?

    Cool... I guess. But this is the same studio that initially hired Singer for the movie despite the allegations against him and that (even worse!) recently made Hellboy, which was really bad apparently.

    Also who is that woman, I don't know them (notice how I'm using the right pronouns, I'm so woke). Some people on Twitter are not happy about this

    I used to like Marvel Comics Red Sonja stuff and I like what little I've read of her since she's been with Dynamite. I'd love a really good Red Sonja movie but I can't escape the feeling that this will be a letdown. Really hope I'm wrong.

    Just looked the show up. Jeffrey Tambor plays a trans woman in it. I think I know why some people are mad now. It seems like the show itself is good, though.

    I really wouldn't mind a decent Red Sonja movie, but I do not dare get my hopes up.

    If people are upset on Twitter...then that's probably a good thing.

    I'll tell you the types I don't want for this role: Sophie Turner, Saoirse Ronan or Karen Gillan. I'd rather have someone more exotic. All three of them would make it feel too much like it's a Celtic tale.

    I know she's a very predictable choice, but

    Unfortunately she's probably too old by Hollywood standards.

    To be fair it's only a few people. I don't know enough about the situation to have an opinion on it.

    I'm not saying that I'd want her, but more someone like Alicia Vikander or that kind of European feel. Or even someone like Sofia Boutella. Either a more Nordic or more Mediterranean feel.

    She did not handle the first reports about Tambor real well. That, I think is the main reason.
