oh and i forgot there is also
The punisher:warzone coming out in 08
and G.I Joe is also coming out



I was looking forward to the new Punisher movie but then I found out that Tom Jane isn't even going to be playing Punisher. It sucks because I think he's perfect for the role.



Was thinking the same thing... I hate sequels that don't have the original cast members (At least the main character/supporting roles). What's the point to making a sequel when it feels like an entirely different movie?

Here's a "fantasy cast" I did a while ago for a film trilogy based on The New Teen Titans of the 1980s:



Eliza Dushku as Donna Troy / Wonder Girl; Jaime Bamber as Dick Grayson / Nightwing; Sharif Atkins as Vic Stone / Cyborg.



Eva Mendes as Kory / Starfire; Rupert Grint as Gar Logan / Changeling; Leelee Sobieski as Raven.



Evan Rachel Wood as Tara / Terra; Jason Isaacs as Brother Blood; Matthew McConaughey as Slade Wilson / Deathstroke.



Marisa Tomei as Blackfire; John Corbett as Trigon.

These are fun to do. I never came up with a good choice for Jericho, though.


p.s. This isn't a film I've heard is being made, it's just one that I'd love to see.

Tell me about it. There's two people in the office today. I'm going completely stir-crazy.

i liked the xmen movies, but if they ever make a new one, i would like gambit to be in it. he was the baddest super hero EVER.




The biggest problem I had with the Xmen films was that I thought it would have made a better mini-series with more character development. I said it ever since I went to see Xmen in the theatre. Someone must have heard me because they did make a series like that. It's called Heroes

I second the Age of Apocalypse idea. I think that may be where they are going with the XMen series though.

I really wish they would have had Gambit it the movies as well, but I guess one anti-hero was enough for them.

From what I've read the punisher is supposed to be a hole different movie with nothing to do with the original.

Same with the new "Incredible Hulk", iirc.

Gambit was in the orignal story boards for the first film,but was later taken out because he was too much like Wolverine.A scene with Gambit was filmed for X 2,but it got canned unfortuanetly.He was also slated to be in X3,and their's actualy one character you can catch in the film that actualy has a resemblence to him,but no name is mentioned in the credits.It's now rumored he will be in the Wolverine film.David Hayter,who wrote the first film and co-wrote the second said he never wanted Gambit in the films mainly because he was too sterotyped.He also claimed he was too much like Wolverine in attitude,and too much like Cyclops in powers.

Maybe one day we will actualy see Gambit on the big screen,but I'm willing to bet it will be in a revamp of the X men movies 15 years from now.
