Okay, as many of you know, I hit the theater last Friday for a viewing of X-Men: Days of Future Past, and as such, I promised you my thoughts on it….. Why haven’t I given you these thoughts? Well… frankly, it’s because I was disappointed with the movie. Why was I disappointed with a movie that so obviously is awesome? That’s easy….isch. Yeah sure, Bryan Singer’s back in the director’s seat and yeah, he brings back what we loved with the first two X-Men films. But I feel that it didn’t quite match up with what we got/felt in First Class, the same way X3 didn’t give us what we got from the first two. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the movie, but it just wasn’t as good as First Class……..
On a completely different Marvel-subject, there’s been a lot of talking all over the internet about Jared Leto being cast as Dr. Strange, which I think would be a great match. We all know deep inside that Leto has what it takes to do a great job with the character if given the chance. However, if it will happen or not… we’re just gonna have to wait and see. I give the casting-choice the Tango’s Stamp of Approval, to say the least….
Continuing on with Marvel (yeah, I like that topic), we have received confirmation that Channing Tatum will be playing Gambit. What do we think about this? Well, I think it could work out great, BUT…. to be compltely honest, I think that they should’ve given Taylor Kitsch a second go-around with the character, because, in my opinion, he was great. He just didn’t get as much screentime as would’ve been needed to give the character justice.
What do you think, Channing or Taylor? They could both work, I think, but … well, again, we just have to wait and see. However, there’s been a lot of talk about Tatum changing the character/super hero etc…. and I don’t quite understand the need for everything to change. If they work in the comics, why can’t they make it work on screen? Ludicrous, is what I think it is…
Well, there you have a little something from my end… Now, I’m off to the gym for some R’n’R! More goodies coming soon, but until then……..
