After the successes of movies like Ironman, Batman, Spiderman, GI-Joe, X-Men its no surprise that studio will continue to ride the bandwagon and produce more of the same. This tends to anger comic book fans because the movies split off from the official story. I myself can attest to this, as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine is just plain wrong at the end I’m hoping this will change in Ryan Reynolds second stint as Deadpool aka: “The merc with a mouth” but this isn’t the only superhero Ryan is slated to play he will also be starring as Green Lantern in the DC universe. It will make Reynolds the only actor to have played in both Marvel and DC comic book movies. (I find when I picture Green Lantern he is black and not Reynolds like at all.) Ryan was also attached to play The Flash but I haven’t heard much about that.
Johnny Depp is supposedly going to play as… The Riddler in the third Batman movie! this an unconfirmed and probably false rumour but still it’s easy to picture and at least to me not half bad still waiting on Catwoman to meet up with Batman and not (I apologize to Berry) fail as hard as she did in the Catwoman movie which was painful to watch. Most guys still watched it though because of the skin-tight and revealing leather suit makes me hope for more Jessica Alba in Fantastic Four movies
All and all I am happy to see superhero movies and am very happy to see some of these finally being made:
- The Avengers – in 2010
- Captain America – 2011
- Thor – 2009
- Ant-Man – 2010
