Warners to reboot "Dungeons & Dragons" movie

Yes, Warners. Let's reboot one of the worst movies of all time instead of giving Wonder Woman her own movie. Genius!

I think there is a lot of potential in the D&D universe, but there are definitely a lot of other franchises I would rather see developed, like the non-Batman or Superman DC characters.

It looks like Harry Potter, and they want to keep that audience buying stuff from Warners.

It should look like Lord of the Rings and try to keep that audience buying stuff.

Seems like a good license, and in this post-LOTR GoT world, they might have an idea of how to make it work. Might want to leave that Snails character behind, and maybe the blue lipstick as well.

I'll wait for the Runequest movie instead.

So I guess I'll be waiting a very long time.

Amazing, but true.

As long as they don't cast Jeremy Irons again. Irons and dragons don't mix well.

It can't be any worse than the first movie.

...well, it can, but that would be truly horrific.

Fantasy is big nowadays, so this isn't a huge surprise. I just hope they have a decent script and a competent director this time.

It should have worked. They just needed a direct competition to see who chomped the scenery harder.
