wtf?



Oh look, it's a shot from Uwe Bolls "Brute Force".  :roll:

It's either that or the cast from bloodrayne is doing a Beatles parody.

Right now I'm more looking forward to the new Superman than X-3.  Then again, I just watched all 4 seasons of Smallville, so I'm pumped for anything related to Superman.

Quote from: "Rhinohelix"
It has become apparent to me that the superhero wave in Hollywood has crested.  There might be good movies to come, but their numbers will be dilluted with blatant money grubbing throw-away films, as the projects are given to people who don't give a damn about the source material.

Goodness I hope that is just a sour Sunday mood talking.  Someone get in this thread and prove me wrong, please.

I think Singer has plenty of passion about Superman- it's a dream project for him (in constrast he actually didn't know much about X-Men when he took that assignment but the themes appealed to him).  How that passion translates on screen is in question, but this isn't just a paycheck for him.  

The problem is with the franchises when the key creative personnel leave them.  You would have a hard time in Hollywood finding an A-List director willing to step in for the third franchise entry.  Most of these guys are only willing to do it if they get in on the ground floor.  That's why they had to consider a newcomer like Matthew Vaughan for X3 when Singer bailed, and then pick up a hack like Ratner when Vaughan bailed.  

Spiderman is going to be looking at the same problem when and if Raimi ever jumps ship- what major director wants to work on a property already instrinscially linked with a specific director?
