Iron Man 2 (Update x 2)

***Word has it that if Rourke wins the ‘Best-Actor’ award this Sunday, Marvel will go ahead and pay him a lot more than they initially offered him.  So, this needs to go ahead and happen so we can see Rourke be a complete badass in the new Iron Man movie.  That’s all I have to report for today.

***Because Marvel offered a whopping $250,000, Mickey Rourke has decided not is waiting to make a decision to do the upcoming sequel.  Instead, which I think is great news, Rourke is now on board to star in Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming movie ‘The Expendables‘.

This has the potential to be an incredible movie.  Word on the street has it that Mickey Rourke (Sin City, The Wrestler) and Sam Rockwell (The Assassination of Jesse James…) have has signed on to play the a main villains that will challenge Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man.  Mickey Rourke is rumored to be playing Ivan Petrovich (possibly, as there are many incarnations of the villain) a.k.a. Crimson Dynamo, a man who uses a nuclear powered suit (similar to Iron Man) for his supervillain activities. Sam Rockwell is rumored to be playing Justin Hammer, a multi-billionaire that is a rival of Tony Stark.

This is some awesome news and I hope that they he will indeed sign on for the sequel.

Tales of the Black Freighter…

Here is a trailer for the direct to DVD release for ‘Tales of the Black Freighter’, which will be on shelves March 24.  For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s a side (comic book) story featured throughout the graphic novel of Watchmen.  It tells the story about a man, cast adrift at sea, who is trying to make it make to his hometown to warn his people of the impending doom of the black freighter.  The story’s events are an analogous representation of the characters in Watchmen.

Gerard Butler (300, RocknRolla) will be providing the voice of the story’s main character, ‘The Captain’.

8-Bit Watchmen Game…

Here’s an 8-Bit Watchmen game ‘released’ by the Veidt Corporation.  It’s a side-scroller reminiscent to any beat ’em up game (e.g. Double Dragon).  I have to say that this game is some pretty cool marketing for the upcoming movie.

K-20: Legend of the Mask…

Posted in Japan, Movie Trailers, Movies, Superheroes on January 28, 2009 by Matt

In Japan the movie is known as ‘The Fiend With Twenty Faces‘, which is by far a better title than ‘K-20’.  This superhero flick kind of reminds me of a “happier” ‘Darkman‘, the way K-20 is able to take on different appearances.  Also, the way he looks is similar to the freedom fighter, V.  Hopefully they’ll release another trailer with English subs, so I can better understand what the movie is about.  I like the concept and the scenes they show in the trailer clearly looks like it will have a lot of action and some pretty badass, parkour style chase scenes.
