I don't know. Perhaps Vaughan is giving himself an out but I've seen three reviews and they pretty much read like this one. And it's running at 100% at Rotten Tomatoes with 16 reviews, so who knows? At first blush it sure looks like he beat the odds.

I find it difficult to put into words just how awesome this retro style poster for Captain America is.

It's so awesome I'd buy a house with more rooms to find space to put it up....please, please, please, please, please, please, please, put this up for sale Marvel, I'd buy it in a freaking heartbeat!! And most likely buy several as backups in case anything happened to it!

That retro poster is just stunning.

Think of the money they could raise by auctioning off a mounted and framed copy signed by the cast.

Cap will be the best movie in history if they can find a way to keep up the hype while never actually releasing it. It would be like the myth of Jerry's racing prowess. (You're welcome for the gratuitous Seinfeld reference in the midst of a thread about Marvel super heroes.)

The Wolverine has a Director

joblo,com wrote:Marvel's adamantium-laced anti-hero has been slowly clawing his way through development for a sequel, but THE WOLVERINE finally has a director.

Deadline says that James Mangold (3:10 TO YUMA, COP LAND) will sharpen Hugh Jackman's fist-knives for the movie, which is set almost entirely in Japan and follows the popular 80s comic story pitting Logan against a ninja clan. Christopher McQuarrie (THE USUAL SUSPECTS) penned the script.

Mangold (whose last movie was KNIGHT AND DAY) was on Fox's recent wish-list of possibilities to replace director Darren Aronofsky, who departed the project a few months back.

Filming is expected to start in the fall, which means the finished film could conceivably carve up theaters next summer.

A solid choice and, provided Mangold is left alone/supported as much as Mathew Vaughn was on First Class, we might get a film as strong as the one we just recieved.

Yeah, that's a pretty nice pedigree. I'm almost kind of looking forward to a Wolverine movie again.

Nathan Fillion sent out this tweet: Hanging w college buds. One says, "...like when you were Capt Mallory." The other, "I liked when you played Cable." Dudes.

Can you picture Nathan Fillion as Cable?

I think the person meant to type "Caleb," the character Fillion played on Buffy. But as for playing Cabel...to be honest, why not? Cabel was never a terribly interesting character in the comics to start with, so reinventing the character to be playable by Fillion could only actually make the character more interesting than he is! ;)

Y'know, that's a good point. Plus, I'd be happy to see Fillion in just about any role. To paraphrase Clark Douglas, he could play former President Jimmy Carter and I'd totally watch.

Heck, I'll take it on Netflix streaming. I'd be happy if someone in the HD content distribution biz would just acknowledge that the flick exists and that it's fantastic.

Let's not worry people. Branagh did a very good job but it isn't like there aren't a lot of other, very good directors to chose from. Everyone scratched their head when they signed Branagh in the first place. Have a little faith and wait & see how this plays out. If I had to pick one director I would go with Alfonso Cuarón. If I could pick two, I'd add Brad Bird to the list. Three? Return back to Mathew Vaughan who was originally slated to direct the first one.

Eh. Still not worried. Both Super Ex & Fantastic Four came out of Fox where a screenplay is more often than not a suggestion rather than what they shoot. Let the process move along and what I saw this morning said Roos was hired to work on the script, not write the actual screenplay. And on top of that, a director is not in place yet and once that happens the screenplay will have another set of hands. Way too early to get nervous about anything.

Just enough bombast mixed with a healthy dose of tense beats, some Saving Private Ryan-esque moody bits, and of course some "rah! rah!" patriotism. I like. Very fitting.

I don't understand some fans crying foul with Don Payne coming back for Thor 2. He co-wrote the solid first one, and if production has anything to say about it, it'll get rewritten by another pair of writers once a director is attached. Not worried at all.

And all the CA stuff is fantastic. The new trailer, score clips -- the movie had better live up to expectations.

Cap can't possibly live up to its hype at this point. Everyone needs to find a way to lower their expectations before it's too late.

I honestly think the trailer does a pretty solid job of portraying the film, much like Thor and X-Men: First Class did. I've got a pretty good idea of what exactly to expect given the trailer, the director, and the material.

I'd wager there's about a 95% chance that if you dug the trailer, you'll dig the flick

The Rocketeer meets Raiders and hires The A-Team. Makes modern actions scores sound like a slow ride to Grandma's house. This reminds me of being nine years old and watching Cliff Secord roll the Gee-Bee out onto the runway for the first time. I like it.

Don't get me wrong I LOVE Flash Gordon, as I loooove cheesy crapfests, but it's overwhelming lack of....Academy love was for a pretty good reason...:-) Good flick to have a few beers though and do your MST3K thing to though....and the soundtrack is forever etched in my eardrums. FLASH! AH-AAAAH!!

Not sold on the need for a Spider-Man reboot and still not sold on the costume but I'm getting used to that. EW has nine new pictures up and I have got to say, me likie the web-shooters.

The pictures are nice. But I hate the suit... with a passion.

Should The Amazing Spider-Man be the best Spider-Man movie (and that'll be a long shot), I'll still complain about the suit.

Dug it, though to be honest I will be more pumped to see a proper High quality version. Which I will, when I see Cap this weekend. Hurray!

The Amazing Spider-Man trailer is now out in the wild.

Looks considerably less flashy than Raimi's outing, but I'm definitely feeling a bit of Deja Vu here.

Same here.

They said they're going to have Spider-Man tossing quips to the bad guys, but this feels like Raimi's first film remade by a David Fincher and Chris Nolan imitator. I do like Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans though.

This one seems to have a good sense of the tone it's going for, even if it is riding the Batman Begins wave. Raimi's movies alternated between effective comedy and atrocious drama. If this script avoids emulating the awful dialogue of the Raimi flicks, I'll be a happy man. I'm optimistic.

Also, Andrew Garfield is exactly the right body-type for this. Oh, and he can actually act.
