Hey, just caught this:
"As for Avi Arad’s phone call today, they’ve screened the film for Universal’s executives as it is right now, and there was silence in the room for several minutes. They were stunned. This has far more beauty and poetry and poignancy and soul than we were expecting from the property. Avi told me that visually, that Ang has taken specific moments and panels from the history of the Hulk and given them a moving life he never really dreamt of. This is a film of loud moments, large moments, quiet ones and little ones. There are human beings in this movie trapped in a tragedy beyond their control. With forces that they can?t command. It has the potential to be a truly great film, not just a great comic book movie. In a strange way, it felt a bit like STARMAN to me? not sure why, it isn?t that story, but it had that sort of weight to it. "
**Can you say “ggaaa…ohmygawd…”? Whoa. Heavy whoa. I’m thinking that trailer we all saw ain’t nuthin’.
AND just also read that Keifer Sutherland is a “shoe-in” as “Ghostrider”. You know, I’m actually thinking that’ll be a good choice. Especially after his sensational turn in “24”. One more thing: Leo DiCaprio is the next choice (if Tom Cruise passes - which I think he may) as “Tony Stark” aka, “Ironman”. Can you say “eeeeeeekkkkk”?
Besides that one minor glitch, I have to say, Marvel is doin’ a good job. I had heard, from another fanboy, that Marvel was now in “over exposure” mode. I don’t think so. What I’ve been amazed at is how varied each Marvel comic book film has been. “Blade” and “Blade 2” was pure gothic vampire slayage; “Spider-Man” was pure comic book geek fun; “X-Men” dealt with social issues (discrimination), “Daredevil” was a personal issue of torment, revenge; and “The Hulk” will be dealing with one man’s inner demons. I like and completely enjoy what Marvel has been doing up on the big screen. Thoughts?
