So-ooo... No one really wants a Black Widow movie either, huh?
I'd like to see an uber-low budget Widow movie like The Raid or something. If they generically action movie it up, then no, not really.

Okay, I apologize. We're just talking past each other. I took it as implicit that what I was saying about body types had nothing to do with how sexy the character was, because of course different body types can be sexy. You seemed to think I was ignoring the issue of sexuality, which confused me. The only explanation I could think of for why you would interpret my words that way was that you were assuming "not big-breasted" meant "not sexy." I apologize for making that assumption, but then, what did you mean?
Just that praticality alone does not make a better character. In fact, there are excellent characters which don't make much practical sense in the real world, and trying to make them follow arbitrary rules of what we consider realistic does not make them better. I'm talking about Catwoman here, but I could be talking about Miss Marple, Fagin or James Bond and my point would be the same.

And I apologize too for my rude tone.

Black Widow and Catwoman team-up movie.

I know it doesn't make sense. I don't care.

I'm probably alone in this, but I wouldn't mind seeing a Captain Britain and MI13 film. Thought Charlie Hunnam would be a good fit, based off the cap's look in MI13 too. There isn't a hope in hell of it happening though.

Maybe not financially but it certainly worked as a movie. I think Dredd's financial failure had as much to do with its 18s/R rating and the lack of name recognition for the character. ScarJo and Black Widow and the Marvel brand wouldn't have the same problem.

Re: Ant-Man and Dr. Strange part of Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 3

I just slogged through the Dr. Strange pilot from 1978, for the first time since I saw it first run. It has a few decent moments, but--yeah--I think it's very dated. Ohmygod, that synthesizer music! I (12 year old me) remember thinking at the time that it was better than Spider-Man or the Hulk, so I'm somewhat hesitant to look up either of those.

One theory I've heard is that name recognition worked against it, because too many people thought it was a remake of the Stallone film.

^Could be that too. The Stallone movie is probably better known than the 2000AD comic strip.

Hey, I'm right there with you.

I'd love to see Pete Wisdom!

Hell, let's do X-Factor and Jamie Maddrox too.

Me too. Have we heard if Jeremy Renner will be making any more appearances before Avengers 2?

Re: Ant-Man and Dr. Strange part of Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 3

BIG rumours for what the plans are in Phase 3.

If true they are pretty big spoilers, so beware. But wow, I didn't think anything could make me more excited for these movies then this report comes along...
