Superhero Woes…

Have you ever watched a comic book movie and loved everything about it?  Of Course you have…Okay… Well then, have you ever watched another comic book movie and realized that the same actor from the first movie is now playing a different character in the second movie?  ie. Chris Evans… Ryan Reynolds…Idris Alba…Aaron Taylor-Johnson…Zoe Saldana… Jon Bernthal… Okay, now have you watched a similar superhero movie made by different company that has two different actors playing the same character? ie. Evan Peters and Aaron Taylor-Johnson both playing Quiksilver in different Marvel Movies (Avengers and X-Men)…

Both of these things have happened too many times to me and I hate it every time it!  I need to rant for a minute.


Chris Evan alone has played 4 different comic book characters.  That is crazy!  Is he the only talented Hollywood Actor out there that was available for all of these roles?  The answer to that question is NO!  He has obviously been playing Captain America (which is the only character I can even see him as anymore), but he has also been another Marvel character; Human Torch from Fantastic Four.  This is really bad for the Marvel Universe! You have the same person playing 2 roles.  The paths of the Fantastic Four and Captain America do cross at some point, so this is unacceptable!  I know that Michael B Jordan is now playing Human Torch (for the time being), but that doesn’t change the fact that you have changed the character in a very short time span (not that Chris Evans should/could ever go back and play Human Torch again. That is only 2 of his characters.  Let’s not forget that he played Jensen in The Losers (Vertigo) and then he also played Lucas Lee in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.  UNACCEPTABLE.

I truly feel that the sanctity of the comic book universe is gone.  I never know who will show up as a specific character in a movie.  If the movies being released are within let’s just say 10 years of each other, then there needs to be some kind of protocol.  Hollywood is making movies for the fans.  I don’t want to see multiple actors playing the same character.  I need uniformity.  Can’t everyone just be like Hugh Jackman and play their character for 16 years and make cameos in all the movies?  I really don’t think that is too much to ask for!

Somewhere down the line all these characters are going to cross paths, if they haven’t already,  and it is going to become a big problem. DC vs Marvel is going to happen, you can feel the storm brewing!  

I know that there are a lot of Hollywood politics that go on behind closed doors, but everyone needs to find a way to coexist. Get our actors/actresses to sign on for the character no matter who is making the movie, get them to cross production companies and make us all H A P P Y.

I know this was a little long winded and all over the place, but you get my point!

Kill, Marry or Have Sex….

In light of so many wonderful things that are happening; Channing Tatum deciding to start Magic Mike Live in Las Vegas, Ryan Reynolds movie coming to Blu-ray (Deadpool May 20), and Captain America 3 coming out, I thought it would be fun to rate some of these actors in the fun game of Sex, Kill or Marry!

What started out as a friendly game of Sex, Kill or Marry with clear and easy choices turned into a cut throat debate with some of my girlfriends.  Gotta love them… until they kill off the wrong person!  This means war!


 

What better way to start things off then with a Ryan war. Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling and Ryan Phillippe that is!

VH- Sex Ryan Reynolds, Marry Ryan Gosling and Kill Ryan Phillippe

MH- Sex Ryan Phillippe, Marry Ryan Reynolds and Kill Ryan Gosling

Starting to see a trend..!

PO- Sex Ryan Gosling, Marry Ryan Reynolds and Kill Ryan Phillippe

FP- Sex Ryan Phillippe, Marry Ryan Reynolds and Kill Ryan Gosling 

So the results are very clear!  My girls love Ryan Reynolds!  This one was easy.  I expected this response.  I mean come on… What’s not to love?

Poor Phillippe.  I guess his good looks couldn’t compete and the masses have now spoken.  Let’s take a moment of silence.


This is where things stopped being so nice.  We were all on the same page with the Ryans (for the most part), but these next few started testing our friendships…
Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth)

BC- Sex Thor, Marry Captain America and Kill Iron Man

I almost kept Iron Man alive and killed off Cap just because Iron Man is probably smart enough to find a way to bring him back to life and then I can keep all 3, but in light of the new Captain America 3 movie that is out I figured Iron Man would not actually do that! Sorry RDJ you had to die!

AR-Sex Thor, Marry Captain America and Kill Iron Man

VH- Sex Thor, Marry Captain America and Kill Iron Man

This one was hard for V.  She couldn’t decide.  Do you marry the gentleman?  Do you marry the God?  Do you marry the money?  I mean, we could all use a Sugar Daddy!

Disclaimer: We couldn’t kill Thor because he is a God and immortal (not that we would want to kill him though)!


Joe Manganiello, Channing Tatum, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson BATTLE OF THE FITTEST

This one caused drama.  We all picked different answers.  I couldn’t believe these girls would kill off certain people.  How could they do such a thing?  I am sure they were thinking the same thing about my answers though!

BC- Sex Dwayne Johnson, Marry Channing Tatum and Kill Joe Manganiello

AR- Sex Channing Tatum, Marry Joe Manganiello and Kill Dwayne Johnson (Let me be clear again. NO ONE can actually Kill The Rock.  It is just not physically possible)

VH- Sex Joe Manganiello, Marry Dwayne Johnson and Kill Channing Tatum

I just can’t agree with these.  I need Channing to stay alive.  I mean he has a show coming up in Vegas next year that I want to see, plus that man has some moves.  

You can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your friends choices and sometimes you just have to agree to disagree.  This isn’t over! Until next time!

Love,
