Terrible Karate Kid idea! Im fine with Joe Johnston doing Cap, even though I hated Jurassic Park III, I did love October Sky though and The Rocketer was a childhood favorite of mine. That WORLD WAR Z sounds awesome and I think I am going to go get that book, I really like Marc Foster. I just saw the new Bond, I gotta say I am glad I didn't get my hopes up because I would only rate it a 7.5/10. I hated the new Bond girl, she was really weak, I just dont get why they didn't use that Ms. Fields as the main Bond girl because she was good. I liked the villian a lot but I dont think he got enough screen time and I wish Jeffery Wright got more screen time. Its a memorable Bond flick, it was a little choppy and poorly edited though but it was a strong Bond flick, I absolutely loved The Goldfinger throw back in it though. Also I definitely agree that they should get rid of the FIRST AVENGER name thing, I do think MARVEL is making interesting Director choices though, I like THOR's director even though I hated his version of FRANKENSTEIN but I loved HANRY V and HAMLET.

The Danish Girl? Interesting choice for Kidman, considering the rumours that have been going around about her being born a man. i mean, i don't believe it, but it's an interesting choice all the same.

Really ? I've never heard that rumor about Nicole Kidman. The first one I've heard (movie wise) was Jamie Lee Curtis, and more generally (and more often, lately), is Ann Coulter.

Interesting though... that's three cases of a gender change rumor about women, but I don't think I've ever heard such a gender switch rumor about a famous MAN being born a woman ?

Yeah, really. The rumour is that she has Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, meaning she was born with X & Y chromosomes amongst other things. I'd post a link to a credible source, but there aren't any. there are bogus reports all over google though. It just seems to me that if you were trying to quash such rumours, you wouldn't except a role like this. i say, good for her/him.

I for one have no problem with a black or asian or any nationality playing Wonder Woman. They are not playing Linda Carter. Theater has gone multi-racial for years and no one cared. Beyonce would be a fine Wonder Woman.

I'm a black man and of course would like to see equal billing for character roles but I don't won't it bad enough to see Beyonce ruin what could possibly be an epic movie if done correctly. Beyonce would destroy and overact in Wonder Woman.

I got exited for a second when I thought that Charlize Theron and Kidman were going to make out but when they throw in a penis my fantasy gets a little weird...even for me.

I as well have no problem with a non-caucasian Wonder Woman. But I don't want Beyonce. Why? Because she's Beyonce. I know her face to well. It would waste her and DC's time. (What a waist! And a delicious bod. )

Monopoly just sounds lame, and Del Torro needs to slow down. Even though he's a good director. He's got enough on his plate. I think the time period feel of Captain America will be good, and I'll see it. But how will they do that costume! And even though only jokerboy mentiond this, I'm seeing Quantom of Solace. I'll just lower my standards. Anyone else think that Matt Damon would make a good Cap?

karate kid remake actually sounds interesting because it is going to start filming in china(martial art meca of the word, despite karate is a japanese thing). for the next movies, the least they should do is make a movie about the read word of martial competition (no blood, violence, just a movie about a munch of poor adults trying to make a living training kids and the boards those karate people break are break away boards (any one can break it without any type of training). it is very likely that the wonder woman will never receive greenlight because the failures of all of the female action movies. no matter it is black of white, female action genere has not made good returns like male action genere. it is relatively sexist, but people (male or female) prefers to see male action heroes than female action heroes.
the nicole kidman movie looks just like another bomb in her record because she has been poisoning almost everything she has been in. however, if they are going to charlize therone and her as a couple, I am very interesting in seeing at least one lesbo action between the two.

Pinocchio with a "perverse and spooky and semi-necrophilia vibe?" Really? Sounds like a terrific movie.....or not. I feel unclean having read that.

Beyonce would probably make a great WW but I doubt if DC is going to change the color of a character that has been helmed by a white woman for 50 years. Not to mention the whole Amazon princess back story would be a little harder to explain with a black character.

Man i can't wait for the world war z movie. The book was great and if they screw up this movie i would get so pissed off. I think that the captian america would be pretty good and didn't they already make a captain america film?

Karate Kid will not click with modern audiences...Marc Forster should be banned from directing after he made the most boring, useless, unexciting action sequences in a Bond movie ever. Intentional or not? does it matter, the action sucked...Spiderbash you're fears are valid...Marc will screw up the movie.

I thought he did an ok job for Bond. My biggest problem with Quantum was the editing, there were too many cuts during the action scenes which would be annoying and the film in general was choppy at times and the bond girl sucked. It was a strong Bond movie though, I just hope they come up with a new story next time.
