Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Elloit would be an okay JJJ and if they go in a "darker" mode for Jameson they might be using the more hard nosed version in Ultimate Spider-Man. In fact I've said all along that this movie might have a great deal of influence from the Ultimate Spider-Man comics.

I think John Slattery is much more suited to Perry White than JJJ. But using either him or Elliott brings the risk of 'familiarity breeds contempt', with both having had roles, albet small ones, in superhero movies over the last few years.

^ He plays Roger in Mad Men and was Tony Stark's father, Howard, in IM2. He's also been in Desperate Housewives.

Ah okay I know him now. Yeah he did remind me a little of Jonah more than Howard Stark.

Here are some slightly odd casting rumours: The contenders for JJJ in this movie are John Slattery, who's already played Howard Stark in Iron Man 2 (a different actor played the role in IM and a third will play him in Captain America) and Sam Elliott, who played Thunderbolt Ross in Ang Lee's Hulk and then the old Ghost Rider in, er, Ghost Rider. And supposedly this JJJ will be more serious and (sigh) darker than as portrayed in the Raimi movies. Oh dear.

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/186...in-spider-man-
It is kind of strange that they're not reusing Slattery for Howard Stark in Captain America. The recasting always momentarily throws me out of movie and I have to remind myself that they're still taking place in the same continuity.

It's funny that we never used to be concerned about this stuff, because every superhero movie had its own continuty, and they never crossed over with each other. Every upside has a downside, I guess.

They should pull a Bond reboot and have JK Simmons return as JJ. If Bond can bring Dame Judi Dench back as M in a Bond reboot why can't they do the same with Simmons?

Bingo, I said that waaay upthread as well.
I mean till they cast Garfield they were talking High School all over again. Now they are sticking post High School, I see no reason to even have Dylan Baker as Lizard frankly.

I was going to say that too. The dude just looks like the comic version came to life. Sounds like I imagine he'd sound too.

^ Actually, I'm pretty sure that was confirmed along with Garfield's casting but I'm too lazy to go look for links.

I think he told somewhere in an interview it'll be interesting to play someone a decade younger than himself. I still think though Logan Lerman would have been a better choice.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Actually I read recently that the movie is still set in high school...not in college as had been previously reported. Until there is some kind of official synopsis released from Sony this is speculation at best. I've come not to trust internet website who cite "sources" nowadays because it always seems like a few days or even weeks later something different is reported.

As for the Stark recasting...isn't this a younger Howard Stark that we will be seeing in "Captain America"? Makes sense if that is the reason.
