That's funny, I'm not subscribed to anything on www.variety.com but I never get blocked. Are they putting up one of those annoying paywalls? What's the point, Deadline scoops everyone anyway.
Yes it's a paywall or sign up for access to a few articles a month(I think it was 2?).
Signing up for only 2 or 3 or 4 articles isn't worth my time to sign up.
Exatcly Temis, so much info is going to be out there that one would be foolish to pay for this type news access.
I love the kinds of paywalls where it's just a bunch of stuff after "html" that you can delete. Good gort, do they think we can't figure that part out?
Since Variety is being lame with their paywall, here's Deadline's story. I'll stick with them from now on, accept no substitutes! I always like the snarky/bitter comments section.
There have been rumors that Marvel would make a “Black Panther” film, but Marvel has crushed these rumors. I would’ve liked a movie about The Black Panther. Check it out http://thecelebritycafe.com/feature/2012/06/marvel-has-no-plans-make-black-panther-film
I just got done watching the old FOX Spiderman series from the 90s, and I have to say, I really enjoyed the Felicia Hardy/Black Cat character. I think it would be cool to bring her into either the Spiderman or Avengers movies; she is a super soldier, after all.
If the cartoon is your only exposure then I guess so but they played loose with that one.
She's not a super soldier.
Her origins been tinkered with a few times in the comics but her as a recipient of the serum(in any form) isn't one of them.
I'm surprised we haven't seen her in a Spider-Man movie yet. She seems to be a pretty popular enemy/ally/love interest/whatever for Spider-Man.
I wonder if her appearance in the ASM game means she's more or less likely to appear in a future ASM sequel?
Well, the great thing about comic book characters is that you can pretty much do whatever you want with them. How many times have these characters been rebooted in comics, novels, TV, and movies? I don't read comics, but I liked the cartoon's take on the character. She was a helluva lot more interesting than Mary Jane, and Gwen only appeared once in an alternate reality.
Plus, towards the end of the show, she started to have a crush on Captain America, so there's that to work with. I just think we need more lady heroes.
Well, if they are going to go down the "Bad-girl-gets-a-crush-on-Cap-and-turns-good" route, then it would be much more accurate to introduce Diamondback, who is an actual Cap supporting character who DID go down that route.
Originally a member of the Serpent Society in the 80's, Diamondback developed a crush on Cap and switched sides, even working with Cap for a time. She is currently Dum-Dum Dugan's partner in the newly reformed SHIELD, and just recently commented that after all of these years, she is still trying to impress Steve Rogers.
We were supposed to have seen Felicia in "Spider-Man 2" (Rami wanted Eliza Dushku for the part) but this was quashed by Avi. Then again in "Spider-Man 3" but again quashed by Avi. "Spider-Man 4" cast Anne Hathaway as Felicia Hardy but she would be playing a character named The Vultress. I expect that we could see her introduced in Webb's trilogy.Unless Avi quashes that.
I would've liked to see a Black Panther movie as well.
Wesley Snipes long expressed interest in doing a "Black Panther" film and one has been on and off in development hell for years. I think one will eventually happen. As mentioned already Kevin Fiege is a huge fan of the character. It's just a matter of time and getting the right people involved.
Isn't Wesley Snipes in prison right now?
Black Panther, framed for a murder he didn't commit, must break out of super max!
Yep, due for release next July.
In time for filming of Expendables 3!!
Not sure I'd rank him in the spot as Schwarzenegger, Stalone, Willis and them. What's the most bad-assness Snipes has to his name (in the same as others, not playing a comic book character)? Passenger 57?
He was pretty bad ass in "US Marshals" If Stone Cold Steve Austin can be in Expendables, then so can Wesley Snipes
