Movie News: Small (and Hairy) in Japan

Gilligan's Island Movie

It was only a matter of time.

Fin Fang Foom in Iron Man 2

Sort of, but it's still pretty cool. [Illustration ganked from Bleeding Cool. Hellboy, unfortunately, will not be in Iron Man 2 at all.]

Resident Evil 4 trailer

Wow, this movie's a lot farther along than I realized. I totally have that same fan behind Milla, by the way.

War of the Gods

I wish it was a movie about Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, and Superman's fighting the gods of all the major world pantheons. But no, it's just an attempt to cash in on the Clash of the Titans remake. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I'm all for more, new Greek Mythology movies and maybe it'll be really good.

Superman Plot

David Goyer's apparently been hired to write the script for the next Superman movie, which - according to Latino Review - is being called Man of Steel and will feature Luthor and Braniac as the villains. LR also says that the script won't go over the origin story again (thank you), but will also not be a sequel to Superman Returns.

If any of this is true, it's pretty cool. I mean, I'm tired of Lex Luthor, but teaming him up with someone like Brainiac could be fun. I especially dig the parts where Mark Millar was always full of crap and The Daily Planet is struggling to stay afloat in the Internet Age.

Wolverine 2

The sequel is set to go into production early next year and it sounds like it has a decent chance of being a lot better than the first one. As expected, it'll be set in Japan and have a heavy romantic element to it. If they can sell the romance and make the danger all about threatening that relationship - while avoiding the silliness and nonsense of the first movie - I can imagine its being really good.

Not trying to be funny but I agree that Wolverine 2 will be much better than the firts one, simply because it is quite impossible to make it worst. I think the main problem here is the movie makers seems to try more to make Jakman look good rather than depict the character with any interest. They know there are a lot of (stupid) fans out there that are going pay to wath whatever crap they make. It's all our fault.

I hope they do that first miniseries with Yukio and Mariko and The Silver Samurai and thats it. Sure some hand goons for Logan to slice but I want the final battle to be against the Samurai in all is shiny talk like goodness. Then end with Logan killing Mariko's father with forever dishonors him in her eyes. Break my heart Marvel. You know you can do it.

I can't believe I have to wait two months for even a teaser trailer of my beloved Resident Evil series. I gots me some guilty pleasurous feelings for those movies.
