Don’t know where else to post this, there should probably be a phase 4 thread.

As Mark Kermode calls him... “Charlie Humdrum”.

Did anyone watch King Arthur?

I did. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Arrows. Guy Ritchie making it into a street boy gone hero really was a shame. It looked to have potential.

But it did feel like watching Jax Teller too often.

I like Hugh Jackman a lot, but they need to get someone rougher, fiercer, and meaner.  Every time I saw Wolverine doing his song and dance shows on Broadway I wanted to take his claws from him.

If I could take anyone regardless of age or their state of actually being alive or not I'd still take Sonny Landham from Predator.  He had the right voice, look, and intensity for Logan, albeit not the right diminutive size since he was 6' 3".

Although I think Jackman grew into the role, I have to agree Landam would have been intense. That Predator performance was incredible.

Landham probably wasn't a good enough physical actor.  I hope they find someone who really comes off as feral.  They've got all the moneys, so I trust Feige will find someone good.

Disney, Fox Film Division Hit With Third Round of Layoffs

Quote

Disney continued to make cuts across the studio’s film division on Wednesday, following its acquisition of Fox’s film and TV entertainment assets. A few dozen employees were affected, according to an individual with knowledge of the layoffs.

 

This most recent round of layoffs is the smallest so far after Disney’s $71.3 billion acquisition of Fox, but details of which departments within the studio’s film arm were hit were unclear. In May, Fox’s corporate communications team was among the departments hit in the second round of layoffs on the film side.

 

The Mouse House began layoffs in March by letting go of senior-level staff and executives at Fox in what is expected to amount to more than 4,000 jobs being eliminated as part of its Fox integration. The first set of cuts hit both the TV and film studios and created a sense of unease and uncertainty on the Fox studio lot. Disney leadership has said it plans to have roughly $2 billion in cost-saving as job cuts continue to eliminate overlapping business functions.

 

Disney has already set its leadership team in place, naming senior Fox veterans Peter Rice and Dana Walden to leadership roles post-takeover.

Wow!

Now that Marvel has completed their purchase of Fox and all the included Marvel characters, there is a question of where that leaves Brolin’s Cable. He discussed the situation while appearing at ACE Comic Con Seattle. Brolin was asked during a Q&A by a fan about his possible inclusion in the MCU as Cable.

 

"I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m actually - I’ve been calling them, like, ‘What’s the deal with Cable, man?’ Seriously, 100 percent serious. They’re figuring it out. It’s a big world now, it just got much, much bigger. So who knows."

 

The confusion about what will happen with the Fox characters has been ongoing since Marvel obtained their rights. While the X-Men themselves have apparently been put on hiatus, Marvel has made overtures about the DeadPool franchise and that would most likely include Josh Brolin’s Cable. Especially since there was a plan by Fox to make an X-Force film with DeadPool, Cable, and Domino. In the meantime, we, like Josh, will have to be patient and see what transpires.
