Those Other Comic Book Movies


Apparently, some movie with a lot of hype starring some famous former drug addict comes out this week. People seem to like it, and are excited about it. Whatever. I'm not disappointed at all that I'm not going to get to see it until next week. I don't like the Fascist douchebag anyway. I'll just watch this Incredible Hulk trailer over at the Apple website. Then maybe get a better glimpse of how awful Hulk and Abomination look in the trailer images at Blog@Newsarama. Aside from the fact that I think Edward Norton is absolutely perfect casting for Bruce Banner, this reboot seems like more of a downgrade from the 2003 film. The trailer barely even utilizes the theme music from the TV show, which is the only thing to be really excited about in this adaptation.

I didn't comment on the movie poster when it was released, because there was nothing to say that hadn't been said by everyone on the internet. It's the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #50, (it would have been more appropriate for Incredible Hulk if the Hulk was facing the same direction as Banner), but looking at it now, it mostly just looks like it should be a Levi's ad. So much denim.


Blog@ also has some new images from Batman Gotham Knight. I still don't know what I think about Batman anime, but Deadshot is always cool. I also don't think anyone would ever argue that a Batman animated project that involves Bruce Timm could ever be a bad thing, especially since Kevin Conroy, the one true Batman, is going to be providing the voice for the main character. Sadly, I don't think Deadshot is going to be voiced by Michael Rosenbaum doing his Kevin Spacey impersonation, but we can't have everything.

I haven't blogged about Hellboy II: The Golden Army before, but I am as excited for it as I am for any other comic book movie this summer, if not more. The first movie was pretty awesome, and it got me reading all the all the Hellboy and B.P.R.D. comics (of which there are a ton of great ones coming out regularly now). Comic Book Resources has a new interview with Guillermo del Toro in which he talks up the sequel and mentions his and, Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola's plans for a third film. Considering del Toro is moving to New Zealand for four years to make The Hobbit, I have no idea when he would get around to making a third film, but considering I have all the faith in the world that this sequel will be as good, if not better than the first movie (mostly on the basis that he's Guillermo del Toro), I really hope it happens. Also, from what Mignola said in his spotlight panel at New York Comic Con, the third movie would have Lobster Johnson in it, and del Toro wants Bruce Campbell to play Lobster Johnson. Lobster Johnson is awesome. Bruce Campbell is Bruce Campbell. The combination of the two could make the third movie the greatest film of all time.

Well, that about wraps it up. Nothing else to mention. Oh, except, if you do go see that movie. What's it called? Iron something? Well, if you go see it, you might want to stick around until after the end credits. According to the star of that movie, the same goes for Incredible Hulk. Just don't ask him about it. (Spoilers for both films in the links.)
