Let's see...

Spidey3 - In good shape.  Sequel in pre-prod.  Same team that did the first 2.  Even though it had it's really dumb elements (organic web spinners, psyching yourself out of being a superhero) it was well-received.  Certain to make another $300M.

X-men3 - In bad shape.  Getting rushed through production with a new director and new crew.  They made some good casting decisions so far, but all the script reviews I've read so far have been bad.  They're gonna regret losing Singer.

FF2 - It'll do well enough.  FF was fun.  Hopefully they'll capture the magic of the book a little better.  FF was just a bit too campy with a disappointing ending.

Hulk2 - Long-term in development.  Don't know when or if we'll see it.

Punisher2 - P1 bombed.  It bombed because it sucked.  It bombed because the character didn't remotely resemble the character of the comic.  It was barely better than the Dolph Lundgren one.  P2 is supposedly coming, but I really hope they keep the suits off it this time.  It'll never reach it's potential as a franchise.

Blade - Done.  The Nightstalkers spin-off has mostly been written off.  But it was a good trilogy.

Daredevil - No sequel plans.

Elektra - No sequel plans.

Upcoming:

Iron Man - In long-term development hell.  I doubt it'll happen.

Captain America - Could be fantastic.  But with a real war going on, I don't know about them doing a superhero movie about war.  I'd just hope they'd set it during WW2, not try some contemporary crap.

Wolverine - Planned after X3, supposedly.  It'd certainly be popular.  As long as he's not ruined in X3

Ghost Rider - In post-production.  He's such an obscure, niche character... hard to tell how it'll do.  The same thing could be said of pretty much all the rest of your Marvel characters.  Nick Fury, Luke Cage, Sub Mariner... I don't know anyone who even reads their books, much less would go to a movie about them.  I guess we'll see if Ghost Rider does well.  If not, I don't see many of these other movies making it.

DC:

Batman & Superman - both set for multiple sequels, as well as a cross-over.  They should do well if they don't get campy.

Wonder Woman - I'm pretty sure the dude from Serenity/Buffy/Angel is attached to WW.  So it could potentially kick some ass.  They just gotta chase away rumors that it'll star Kim Bassinger (something I heard not long ago).  You gotta get somebody smoking hot to star, not somebody over-the-hill.

Rest of the cast of JLA and JLA - that's a tough sell.  None of the characters are all that popular.  Each is a bit one-dimentional, but together the movie would be too expensive.  You can't do a small-scope JLA movie like you can a small-scope X-men... you pretty much gotta be doing something cosmic apocalyptic, and that's pricy.

Teen Titans - Now there's a hit for you.  The cartoon is HUGE.  A live-action version would be very successful.  And it could be done with a reasonable scope at a reasonable price.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Those you're forgetting...

Sin City 2 - The sequel to the BEST COMIC BOOK MOVIE EVER (except for maybe... maybe Superman II) is gonna happen.  Much of the original cast will return.  The DVD for SC1 comes out in two weeks, for which I simply cannot wait!

Hellboy 2 - The sequel to the THIRD BEST COMIC BOOK MOVIE EVER is gonna happen.  I think all the original cast that survived HB1 is returning.  Should be some huge monster-ass-kicking fun.

V for Vendetta - Coming out this fall.  Based on the classic Alan Moore series.  Stars Portman and Mr. Smith.  I just read the graphic novel last week after watching the trailer, and if done right this movie will be disturbing and awesome.  We shall see.

I think that about wraps it up.

HA! She finally admitted it? Dude! I can think of some people over there who must feel a little...eh, less masculine there now.

Yeah... especially after ShaakTi disclosed that he... uh... prefers the company of men (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Huh?? ???
Link please...I hate to be left in the dark  ;).

PS:  How you feeling Princess??

There was a user on the RS forums named ShaakTi who posed as a girl for a good 3 months, going so far as to send a fake photo to the RS photo album.  Then he decided to reveal that he was really a guy.  I tried to find the thread, but as everyone knows the RS search feature is ****.

Ah Morgbug... ya missed it.  My statement was a joke referring to an unfortunate series of events in another popular Star Wars forum.  It had nothing to do with Miss Shoshan.  ;)

Everybody knows there aren't any real females in Star Wars forums.  They're all "Shaak Ti" type "females."

My phobia is razor blades.  When I was really young, I saw my dad shaving one morning.  That day we went to a graduation party.  When I went to the bathroom, I saw a straight razor sitting on the sink and decided to do what my dad was doing.  I don't remember anything past grabbing the razor.

I can use razors in a non-shaving capacity with no problem, but I get really anxious even thinking of using one to shave.  I've had to use an electric shaver my whole life.

Reminds me of the Family Guy where Peter buys Chris a pair of breast implants "to make him happy," and then Chris walks by with one in each hand squeezing them and giggling.  ;D

Here's an interesting one from last night's episode of Rescue Me: "twunt". It's a hybrid of ... well, just what you think. :-[

Yeah, that was hilarious.  I'm amazed at the level of profanity they get away with on that show.  I guess it is 10pm on cable, but still... it's not like it's a premium channel.  They've used every profanity on that show short of ****!  And even made some up along the way.... cwat.  ;)

« on: July 10, 2005, 08:32 PM »
There was a LONG thread about kebco in the RS forums.  Basically, they've defaulted on tens of thousands of dollars worth of figures in the "one of every figure club" promotion, and have no intention of ever returning the money.  When you signed up for the club, you basically gave them permission to take as much money as they wanted for pre-orders, and keep it even if those pre-orders couldn't be filled.  Most people were $300-500 in the hole before they dropped out.  Kebco does not answer any form of communications these days except their eBay auctions.  And if you win one of their auctions they won't talk about any other merch they may owe you.  It's the big stonewall.  Unless you can get your credit card company to reverse the charges, you're out whatever you've paid in (until someone starts a class action suit).
