As I understand, some scribes here are also fans of the Sorcerer Supreme, so I took liberty in sharing this great news!

Kevin Feige confirms plans for A Dr. Strange movie. A short info can be found HERE.

The actor who will possibly don the sorcererís robe is Patrick Dempsey, Chris Evans, or Johnny Depp. Ryan Reynolds used to be in the ďpossibleĒ list, but thatís no longer true now for heís wearing the Lantern's ring.

[Edit]

Itís been almost three years since I started this thread, and yet there is hardly any development in the plans for this film.

It looks like a Z-95 Headhunter, but Lucasfilm has confirmed it is an X-Wing. If you look closely at the way the cannons are mounted to the wingtips, you can see that the S-foils are there, but not in the same format as the T-65B from the Classic Trilogy.

I saw this on my tablet, first... It wasn't until I was looking at it on my work computer that I noticed the mouse droid in the picture!

Looky!




A good chunk of my morning was spent on "no, that's not a Z-95, but Z-95s are already in the new canon because they were in the Clone Wars cartoon."

It was also confirmed during a Star Wars: Rebels press release earlier this year at... I want to say New York Comic Con, but I could be in error on the event.

Well, the first article I saw, I said the expected "not an X-Wing, that's a Headhunter!" comment... But that article included a Tweet from Lucasfilm saying that yup, it was an X-Wing. Then I saw a larger pic, took a close look at the wings, and noted the cannon mounts.


Its probably a newer model of X wing. Thanks to the EU being designated non canon we cant really make any guesses to what exactly it may be.
That old gripe aside, photos like this are making me more and more impatient to see the movie. I really hope that it doesn't get delayed for some reason. Like Han Solo's err I mean Harrison Ford's unfortunate accident.

I loved those old movies but while the first one was not all that campy but the last two definitely were. Nothing necessarily wrong with that, they were still fun to watch. Of course the first one remains my favorite and I hope they make a worthy successor. Because frankly I don't want part of my childhood to be ruined just so some movie studio can make a profit.

Just saw the "new" trailer (basically the third one now) of the TMNT movie coming out in august. Is anyone else interested in this? I'm of mixed feelings- on the one hand, YAY!! TMNT!!!- on the other, there are things about this that bother me. First being a WHITE Shredder. Yes, that's right, it's not Oroku Saki, it's some older white guy named Eric Sachs (and us fans have already picked up on the odd name similarities....) Also, two of the turtles look pretty decent, but Raph and Mikey just look- weird. The noses seem out of place. Donnie seems to have gone overboard on the nerd gear, but Leo- well, he looks pretty BA. Megan Fox is playing April, but I'm okay with that, as long as the turtles themselves are good and the story makes sense for all the changes Bay and friends have made.



I like the look of the turtles. The Shredder thing doesn't both me too bad. In the old cartoon he was a Caucasian with a Japanese name and an African American voice actor. From what I've seen of the newer one, Shredder's pretty pasty. Depends on the execution. I do like his armor.



Actually, in the old cartoon (80's/90's, there have been two separate cartoon series since then) Shredder was NEVER Caucasian. He WAS Japanese, and in the few scenes where one can see his full face it is quite clear- in the origin flashbacks in the very first episode, as well as a few of later episodes such as the one where his mind gets switched with Splinter's, and another where he gets hit with one of his own devices and believes he is Michelangelo (which is utterly hilarious to hear James Avery's take on Mikey!) There are others, but those are the two that stick out in my memory ATM.

Re- the 90's TMNT films: Only the second and third ones were really very campy. The first one was a bit darker and more serious, enough so that parents protested the violence to the point that when the second movie was made, they NEVER used their weapons. Not ONCE did any of the turtles actually use their weapons to fight, but instead only occasionally s props to defend or annoy their opponents! (ie- distractions, blocking an attack, even handing them a weapon to confuse them, etc.)

And Bay is not directing the new movie- Jonathan Leibsman is. Bay is PRODUCING it. But yes, I understand your trepidation on that front. So do a lot of people, apparently.

Did you not see the live-action TMNT films made in the early 90's?


Oh yeah I totally forgot about those. Those were a bit campy but good fun. Still not all that keen on Megan Fox and Micheal Bay though.

OMG! A friend just told me, and I Googled it just to make sure: Dr. Strange was one of Hydra's targets! How the hell did I miss that?!

That kind of makes *some* sense, I suppose, since Strange and the more occult-side of the Hydra organisation have tackled in the past. Not much, surely.

I would've thought Doctor Strange would be on SHIELD's watchlist. Now that's directly from the comic books.

Since Marvel doesn't believe in keeping spoilers (yeah, if you watch Agents of SHIELD, they *tell* you what happens in Cap 2), I figure it's safe to talk about.

When they are interrogating the Hydra guy, his (almost) exact quote is "Stark, Banner, Stephen Strange, some valedictorian ..."

I do believe that Wanda will introduce the Magic to Marvel Universe, then the Doctor will run with the ball.

More than likely, though I suspect Agents of SHIELD will at least lay the groundwork for further magic, since the Thor films really started the whole introduction of magic into the MU. It's possible that the AoS television show will promote magic before a Strange film ever hits the big screen.

Of course, it will be interesting to see whether the Marvel cinematic universe will differentiate between the "science as magic" that Thor describes of the Asgardian magic, and the purely sorcerous/bloodline abilities like those of the Scarlet Witch.

A TMNT story without Casey Jones could be a tough sell for the most "devout" fans.

Though, still, seeing Vernon [here's hoping he is as obnoxious as his 80's animated series character] could be a suitable trade-off.



LOL! Let's hope so! And man, you should check out the trailers- These guys are HUGE! (And some have suggested that Mikey looks a bit like Shrek, but.....)

Yeah, that's my biggest worry, too- and apparently, we're not alone. I frequent a fan site for them (Technodrome Forums) and that's one of the biggest gripes of all the fans there, is NOT ENOUGH TF!!! They worry that TMNT will be more of the same. And MANY have griped about the changes to Shredder. And the designs. And..... It gets tiresome sometimes hearing all the negative things, and so little of the positive ones. I'm really liking the lair and the van, Splinter looks decent so far, and although I'm not completely sold on his voice (Tony Shaloub?) it seems to work from what I've seen in the second trailer. Mikey's voice seems spot- on, and I like Raph and Don's too, or at least what I've heard so far. Still think having Vernon instead of Casey is an odd choice, and Whoopie as "Mr." Thompson (okay, so- April's boss is a chick now??!) is kind of strange, but I could like it if it's done right. And for those who remember Vernon from the 80's/90's cartoon, Will Arnett seems to fit the role.

I'm cautiously optimistic. On the one hand, I'm disappointed with the changes to Shredder. But, on the other, I also do like the look of these Turtles.

And I know, I know, most TRANSFORMERS/TMNT fans have a big problem with Bay's work on these classic franchises. But I count myself among the few old-time fans [meaning, I've been with both franchises since their very beginnings] who actually like parts of what Bay has accomplished with the Transformers.

My only really criticism... and it's one that's similar to my own problems with the TRANSFORMERS films ... please don't focus TOO MUCH on the human element. This is a film about mutant ninja turtles. Just like TRANSFORMERS was a film about alien autonomous machines from a mechanical planet. But the human element often takes up far too much screen time in Bay's franchise films. So I hope he tries to limit that in TMNT.

I didn't realize it was already out. So you found it to be disappointing, huh?

I know every comic book fan has a different interpretation when it comes to seeing one of their favourite characters adapted for a big screen film. And that's fair enough. But I really was disappointed with this latest Spidey feature. It just didn't draw me in like the older Raimi Spidey-films have in the past.
