#Randomness 2015 – series #1

A lot has been going on in the world of geekery, as always, so I thought I’d jot down some thoughts on some random subjects for you, beginning with Tom Hardy leaving Suicide Squad.

Jake Gyllenhaal seen leaving hotel to promote movie Source Code in NYCApparently, the scheduling met with some conflict, leading Hardy to drop out, while other sources say that he dropped out because of the script. Whatever the case, I think it’s sad that he’s out, he would’ve made one hell of a Rick Flag! It’s also been reported that they’re eyeing Jake Gyllenhaal as a replacement and, well…. it could work. He has some pretty decent performances on his resumé, but can he do a good Rick Flag? We’ll just have to wait and see… but my guess is, he’ll do at the very least an okay Flag. Not as memorable as Ledger’s Joker or Keaton’s Batman but it’ll still be better than his own Prince of Persia.

The SilmarillionSecondly, with The Hobbit-trilogy being concluded, Peter Jackson has spoken out about him wanting to do some smaller projects. Sure, he’s done some major budget-Mastodons over the last decade and one can’t blame him for wanting to go back to his roots. However, should he be given the chance, he admits he’ll be likely tempted to take it. Which could mean, Chris’ willing, that he’d actually be taking on The Silmarillion sometime in the future, and what Tolkien-fan wouldn’t want that? I know I’ll be lining up for tickets! What do you think? If given the chance, do you think Jackson should adapt The Silmarillion? Let me know down below…

Spider-Man AvengersThirdly, I just wanted to drop some thoughts on that whole Sony/Marvel-debacle that’s been going on for some time now. Personally I think that, whoever holds the rights now, every single Marvel-character out there is going to end up in Marvel’s corner sooner or later, that’s just a given. With the incredible success Marvel has had with their shared universe, I think it obvious that they will do whatever they can to assemble all their characters under one roof, whether it’s Spider-man coming home from Sony or the X-Men and Fantastic Four coming home from Fox, they will all be together at some point and we will all be able to see them together in the MCU, if not this one, then the rebooted one in 20-30 years, and I’m willing to bet money on that. Sadly, however, Spider-Man won’t be joining up with the Avengers until Avengers: Infinity Wars at the earliest, but hey… at least we get Civil War, right? Yeah!

What do you readers make of all this? Do you agree with me on Marvel getting back their characters? Do you want to see Jackson adapt The Silmarillion? Or do you perhaps have someone other than Gyllenhaal in mind to replace Hardy in Suicide Squad? Let me know down below. And as always, more goodies coming soon, but until then….


About hanktango

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
