Pretty sure Abraham was thinking "I spent this long protecting this ******bag - I'm not letting him poison himself now!"

They still have that urge to be "moral" and "human"...

So a tornado struck next to the barn, tore down dozens of trees, but didn't damage the barn?  That was kind of an odd sequence.

Good to see Kingsmen is doing well.  The comic it's based on is quite good.  And I hear they stayed pretty faithful to it.  Even included the cameo of a particular celebrity (which they've kept under wraps through all the promos).  When I heard they were doing the movie I was like "No way they're going to do that to him..." but when I saw he agreed to appear in the film I was like "Maybe these guys actually got some balls after all."

I've seen the "short list" posted a number of places - the actors they're reportedly considering.  They're all white.  The two main ones are Percy Jackson and the lead from Maze Runner.

If I had any say, I'd have them consider Leo Howard.  He's on Disney's Kickin' It (which my younger daughter loves).  He's legit young (17).  He's a martial artist. And he's got great charisma.

Man, I don't know.  Spidey is the 800-pound gorilla of the Marvel Universe.  It'd be like DC casting a black actor to play Clark Kent.  And there is a black Superman in the comics right now - also an alternate universe guy.  I don't think anybody would use that as evidence that they might cast a black guy to play the next iteration of Supes.

I would also say the chances of a non Peter Parker Spiderman are at least 50/50.

You're crazy.  The whole world knows Peter Parker as Spider-Man.  Peter Parker movies have made Sony $4 billion.  The circulation of the Miles Morales Spider-Man books is 30,000 (77th highest of January).  I see the chances of a non-Parker Spidey somewhere south of 1%.

I read Sinister Six was still in development.  So it might happen at some point.  But I think that's the only proposed Spideyverse film still being considered (outside 2017 Spidey, obviously).

What's really interesting is the walkers get dead silent when they're about to sneak up on you.  Otherwise they're groaning and hissing non-stop.   ;D

I don't think he was spaced out as much as he was in utter grief.  And I'm guessing the rooms were connected by an open door, so he through the walker was locked up when he wasn't.

What I really enjoyed was the tension after he got bit, because it made every threat after that real.  When Michonne's sword deflected off the metal bar on that walker's shoulder, I thought she might actually get bit.  When they opened the gate, I thought Noah might get bit by the last one through.  When dude's shoe got stuck in the wire, I thought the walker following was going to get Glenn.  Real, palpable tension.  It was open season.

One thing I found interesting was that for each of the Talking Dead promos during Better Call Saul, both the host and the actor were fighting back tears.  The host barely got through the second one - looked like he was ready to break down.

Pascal is moving from studio CEO to producer.  Kind of a demotion, but she'll probably still be able to cover her bills.

What it means ultimately is:

Spider-Man will be in Captain America - Civil War
Spider-Man will be in his own stand-alone film in 2017
Spider-Man will be in the Infinity Gauntlet movies
Spider-Man may appear in any of the other upcoming Marvel films (not yet determined)
I expect we'll see Spider-Man in one of the end credit scenes after Age of Ultron

also
Thor 3, Black Panther and Inhumans have all been moved back one slot.

We probably won't see any Sony Spidey spin-offs that were mapped out.  Disney won't want to oversaturate.  Sorry to all those who were looking forward to the Aunt May stand-alone feature film.

I honestly think Indy stories are very limited.  There really aren't all that many lost magical treasures.  I think even Crystal Skull ran into that problem.  How do you top finding the Ark and the Holy Grail?  Crystal Skull's answer was to give magic powers to extra-dimensional beings, to very poor results.

Maybe he can look for the end of the rainbow next.

Nobody will be a good fit for the role.  It'd be like recasting Rocky.

It's a shame Hollywood continues to resort to churning out remakes instead of generating quality original content.  At one time they had to guts to give us a Star Wars and a Raiders instead of remakes of Buck Rogers and King Solomon's Mines.  And they earned billions of dollars.  But I guess the risk today is too high for the potential reward.
