MacGuffin is a random item that the characters are searching for.  Typically, you can swap out anything for the MacGuffin and the plot won't really change.  But I know what you meant - they were foreshadowing.  But it's kind of a big plot hole - if Pym Particles reduce the distance between atoms, the weight of the object should be unchanged.  You wouldn't be carrying around 10-ton tank in your pocket.

I think you're right about casting Janet Van Dyne.  I expect Hank Pym will attempt to save his wife from the Quantum Zone in Ant-Man 2, now that he's been shown a way to survive the trip.  And since time is meaningless in the QZ, they probably wanted to keep the casting options wide open.

There's a nice burn on the X-Men Origins: Wolverine version of Deadpool in the preview trailer:

Both characters are played by Reynolds.  And given that Deadpool has the unique superpower of knowing he's a character in a comic book (and we assume, a movie), and routinely breaks the fourth wall, it has the potential to get ridiculously meta.

I think you could probably reason with the time travel stuff that went on in Days of Future Past that the Weapon X program that developed Wolverine and Deadpool in Origins never existed.  As I understand it, Deadpool does exist in the Fox X-Universe.

What are you running now?

The initial reports I read were that the first release is a bit buggy.  You have 1 year to download it for free.  I'm gonna wait a bit until it's patched, and my employer confirms I can use it to remote in to work.

Look up the history of the card, then look at her expression.

Not CGI:



I do agree it's kind of odd to redeem your worst villains before they've ever been villains on-screen.  But then the whole premise of the Snyderverse Batman is that he's retired after years of successfully taking down criminals.

So this movie won't have anything to do with Suicide Squad?

Same universe.  And Batfleck is in both.  Otherwise, no known connections.

Yeah - that was my initial idea.  As I understand it, Lex is the main (maybe only) baddie in this movie. 

I figured the Joker costume thing was showing maybe why Bruce quit.

I figured it was Lex who sent the note to Bruce.  But they didn't really say either way.

I can't figure out why WW is there either.  Maybe it's to make awesome force fields.

Was  it just me, or did they seem to get most of the characters wrong?

Ma Kent is lecturing Superman to be selfish and say piss off to all of humanity.

Lex Luthor is jovial and likes to wax poetic.

Bruce Wayne apparently rushes to judgement without investigating all sides of the Zod conflict.

And Superman raises his own Nazi army who worship him to protect his desert stronghold.

Yeah, I sincerely doubt we'll see anything like that from YouTube, though.

I certainly think the character can still work.
