Looks fucking awful.
I don't rate his sartorial credentials. Everyone else seems to.
I don't like Paul Rudd one little bit. He is fucking awful.
Paul Rudd is pretty great?
Not that fussed about him.
but he signs on to lots of terrible movies.
see also: Jim Carey, Owen Wilson.
do not see: Vince Vaughn
i really dont find him funny.
surely. what a missed opportunity.
but I couldn't really think of anyone more generic than post-Clueless Rudd, who is surely, SURELY, the shittest thing ever,
Ant Man and Dec Pet
and everyone knew that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish had been working on this for years.
you, sir, have overplayed your hand.
By everyone, i mean all those who are interested in AntMan.
"everyone" and "all those who are interested in AntMan" do refer to very similar sets of people, after all.
he wrote and directed his latest one. probably just though "might as well fucking star in it too eh"
So I have no idea if this is good casting but it all sounds good to me, I've liked Paul Rudd in lots of things and Joseph Gordon Levitt is the probably the person I'd most like to be my best friend.
Andy from Parks & Rec is the lead in another new film, Guardians Of The Galaxy, which will also feature Bradley Cooper as a raccoon and Vin Diesel as a tree. Just typing 'Vin Diesel as a tree' makes me laugh.
With no hair. Bizarre.
I mean, Robert Downey Jnr as a superhero seems a little ridiculous even now. That's actually one thing I like about them, they cast people who I guess they see as right for the role, rather than because they're a bankable name.
Chris Pratt has lost LOADS of weight for Guardians. It was mentioned very briefly in an episode of Parks & Rec, where Andy claims to have dropped 50lbs just from cutting out beer :D
I show probably just watch that show already.
I had not seen that photo.
and the highest paid actor in the 1st film was Terrence Howard. Which I think lead to pay dispute and him pulling out of the 2nd film (or something).
it's one of the house's best franchises IMO. Great writing, great plotting, great identity. Yeaaaaah.
Vin Diesel :')
Moon Knight would be a solid candidate for that.
So fingers crossed
and holy shit, he wrote both scooby doo films
I liked the Dark Knight trilogy as much as the next guy, but I do wish this trend would die out sometime soon. The last Superman and Spiderman films bore the oily fingerprints of Hollywood bean-counters. And, in all honesty, I'm sort of wishing that Guardians will lose a bunch of money, and Hollywood will have to think of something else.
they'll stop making them. Even if Guardians fails, stuff like The Avengers sequel and the Man of Steel sequel will still make a fortune to make up for it.
and if you want superhero films free of "the oily fingerprints of Hollywood bean-counters", you're unlikely to get closer than with the MCU films. They're how all blockbuster films should be.
But it's the ubiquity that irks me. I find it a bit disheartening that this superhero craze is enlisting so much great acting and filmmaking talent to tell the 'handsome muscular white man comes to terms with his super powers (or super selection of gadgets)' story all over again.
I've seen about a quarter of the existing MCU films (and the Agents of SHIELD pilot), and (as charming as people like Downey Jr and Ruffalo are) the franchise no longer holds any intrigue or suspense for me at this point. It's asked me to suspend my disbelief too many times, so that the sight of a billionaire in a rocket suit fighting with a Norse god (or whatever) doesn't really have me on the edge of my seat the way it might have done a few years ago.
but just have a niggly feeling that this will bomb. and be shit.
then again it might be the next howard the duck.
