Disney continues its quest to remake each and every movie in the infamous Disney vault. this time, it’s
The Lion King.
But does this mean they’re just churning out lifeless shot for shot remakes of far better films?
Yes. Yes, it does.
Famed Photoshop maestro Bosslogic asks “What if Marvel became DC and DC became Marvel?” Here are the pics and some thoughts…
Gal Godot as Black Widow.
This will never happen, but I’d love to see Marvel try.
ScarJo as Wonder Woman.
Eh. ScarJo isn’t my favorite actress. Not sure this is a good fit.
Henry Cavill as Captain America.
I’d pay good money to see this one. Cavill’d make a SUPERB Cap.
Chris Evans as Superman.
OTOH, I don’t think Chris Evans makes a good superman.
Jason Momoa as Thor.
Give him blonde hair, and he might pull it off.
Chris Hemsworth as Aquaman.
Sure, that works.
Robert Downey, Jr as Batman.
This pic isn’t as good as the rest, but I think that RDJ could nail Bruce Wayne / Batman (even if his Bruce Wayne would be disconcertingly similar to Tony Stark).
Ben Affleck as Iron Man.
Ben Affleck is actually a talented actor, and his Tony Stark might be a lot more like the comics’ than RDJ’s Stark was.
Tom Hiddleston as the Joker.
Not sure if he could do it, but I’d like to see him try.
Jared Leto as Loki.
That, he might be able to pull off.
Ezra Miller as Spider-Man; Tom Holland as The Flash.
I don’t want to see Ezra Miller as anyone, but especially not Spider-Man. As
Justice League showed, he’s just not funny and Spidey needs to be funny.
Tom Holland might be okay, though.
Chadwick Boseman as Cyborg; Ray Fisher as Black Panther.
I say give it a try.
Please enjoy the holiday!
A trailer for Peter Jackson’s new documentary on World War One. It’s a must watch.
I’m not gonna lie to you and say this Honest Trailer is good. The “overly-worn VHS tape” gimmick is itself overly worn, and trying to comment on Rocky IV while sneering at America today and back then is pretty grating.
But the Behind the Scenes is even worse. Guys with a superficial understanding of the Cold War and the Soviets trying to write historical humor at both is kinda nonsensical.
Not one of their better weeks.
Deadpool 2 Redux with FRED SAVAGE. (Now if they’d only make a PG-13 Deadpool 1.)
At last, an
Aquaman trailer that doesn’t suck. Took them long enough.
And a second one, for good measure.
Guess that technically wasn’t enough said, but it was ‘Nuff said. If you get my point.
This right here is the glorious story about how an absurdly awful film got greenlit, made, and released. It’s astounding.
Could the movie have been good? Sure. Was it? AW HELL NAW. And now I know why.
How Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Should Have Ended!
Well, it should have STARTED with a shorter title. I mean, LANDS SAKES people. You could wrap a mummy with movie tickets long enough to display the full title. It’s CRAZY.
