So is that why the show Heroes  is called "Heroes" and not  "X-men: the series"??? You do kknow Stan Less did a cameo last season on Heroes.

Why would the series be called X-Men instead of Heroes?  Nothing about this series reminds me of the X-Men.

There is a TV trailer floating around the net with the cameo of Stark & there is another cameo in the flick which I will remain


Another SLJ cameo?  Hmmm.

Anyone going to a midnight showing for Incredible Hulk tonight?  My theater has one so I'm thinking of going to it.

It sounds like that particular cameo was cut out of the film...

But, the cameo appearance footage of that character is going to be posted on the 'net soon and should be put on the DVD when it's released (according to the director, in an interview at a comic news website).  I'd keep an eye on the "superhero/comic" websites because I'm sure they will find it when it goes up.  :)


Here's the SPOILER link to the story if you'd like to have it spoiled...  :D

Posting this here since it's a super hero movie, but I read a review of Hancock that detailed the plot... it doesn't sound too good at all. :-\

That's too bad - the premise was actually starting to grow on my a little. Is it just a crap ending?

Just sounded like a lame plot overall, which is too bad because I was somewhat looking forward to it.

Basically Jason Bateman becomes Hancock's PR agent and tries to turn him into a "good" superhero (he's hated by the city for the destruction he causes despite saving people, and has alcohol problems as a result) and it turns out that Bateman's wife (Charlize Theron, I think) is somehow related to Hancock (due to some past event involving memory loss) and the closer the two are to each other, the weaker their powers get.

IGN has a new trailer up for the upcoming Punisher: War Zone movie, for anyone interested.  I still don't think I've gotten around to seeing the entire last Punisher movie (Thomas Jane), just parts of it when its played on FX.

Saw Incredible Hulk last night.  Meh.  It was better than the first go-round and they basically rebooted the franchise with new back story and whatnot.  From that perspective it was good, especially going forward in the new united Marvel universe of films.

Spoilerish stuff here...

What I didn't like; CGI, all the new "origins" type stuff that we had to see for the reboot, action scenes were confusing and hard to follow towards the end.  And some scenes that were in even the latest trailer were not in the film.  Oh, and William Hurt...wish it had been Sam Elliot again.

What I did like; Norton and Tyler, the Hulk looked much better most of the time.  The action was better and more interesting in parts at the beginning and middle (in the park).  Stark's cameo, Ferrigno's cameo, San Lee's cameo, S.H.I.E.L.D.  Hint of a future villain?  "Hulk SMASH!"

What I missed; supposedly there's a Bill Bixby cameo but I'm not sure I saw it.  I think there's an old clip of a movie or TV show with him in it that Norton, as Banner, is watching on TV.  Either that or they reused footage from the 70's TV show during one scene when Banner is getting eradiated with the gamma rays.

I have a feeling that if you are a big Hulk fan then you might like this more.  Unlike the Spider-Man and X-Men movies, for example, I don't have any connection to the Hulk's corner of the Marvel world.  And unlike Iron Man, this movie didn't have that all-access feel to it where you could jump in, no matter who you are, and enjoy the film.

Also, and this isn't just a Hulk issue, but I hate it when you watch a film and you're thinking "that CGI is terrible" or even "that CGI isn't that bad."  I like a film, and I'm flogging Iron Man here because that's my new comic book movie measuring stick, where you're like "dude, that guys flying around in a suit!" and later you realize that no, he's not, but he LOOKS like he is.  Hulk has a lot of crappy CGI stuff going on that I just don't like and noticing it took me out of the film a couple times.

Oh, the theater last night, probably only half full if that.  It was nowhere near as full as the near standing room only Indy film was or the full Iron Man premier.
