    First Michael B. Jordan, now Reg E. Cathey - someone is a fan of The Wire (as well as middle initials).

    For me, Cathey (like Larry Cedar) will always be "that guy from Square One Television."

    It also brings two House of Cards alumni in the shape of Cathey and Kate Mara.

    Does anyone even care enough any more to get angry about this movie? I get the feeling we're moving into one huge collective, "Meh." :)

    I have a friend who commented "FAIL! FAIL! FAIL!" on the comicbook.com facebook post. I guess people are still getting worked up about it.

    At this point, I can't even get super angry at this movie. I've gone past anger and into not caring. Its going to be a train wreck, and probably the least faithful superhero movie we've gotten since superhero movies found its actually to their advantage to be at least somewhat close to the source material. I'll watch it on DVD eventually, but I'm more likely to laugh at it then yell at this point. That said, it could be bad enough to make me angry, but I'll have to wait and see when it comes out. Right now, like Tosk said, my general thoughts on this movie is just "Meh".

    Looks way better than the Thing from the previous two films...

    A scarier more convincing monster does not equal a better Thing.

    Is the new "version" of the Thing not going to be orange?

    So Ben Grimm will still become the rocky Thing in this version...that's almost surprising.

    Yes, yes perspective... How tall do you think that the monster is going to be?

    9 feet, 10?

    My brain just filed a new case of the criminal underuse of an actress.

    Olivia Pope vs. Doctor Doom.

    I don't think that anyone has the stones to call bullshit on that.

    Y'know, to his face.

    They look blue to me...but it's just a stand-in/CGI reference prop anyway.

    I think it looks good, if real. It wouldn't really bother me if they depart from the orange colour.
