I agree. Star Trek was cool that everyone was wondering if the cast (mostly unknowns) would live up to the roles of the old TV characters. And for the most part they did and it seems that ppl loved that
Ok, heres a rant
Ryan Reynolds did a major supporting role in Blade III and then he signed on to play Deadpool, and now he's Hal Jordan. I hope the people swinging there fists in the air happily aren't the ppl who always complain about originality because this is about as original as remakes or making unnecessary sequels.
Ryan Reynolds is already one of Hollywood's leading men. You know what I liked about so many superhero movies, they introduced me to new ppl. Batman Begins introduced Bale to me and the GA, Spiderman introduced Tobey McGuire, X-Men introduced Hugh Jackman, Superman Returns introduced Brandon Routh and so on. Reynolds while a good actor is already established and wont bring anything new to the table. He'll play a similar character he plays in alot of movies: the cocky fun guy.
But with a less known actor it wouldve been more interesting to anticipate and see.
If the Deadpool project is dead then I understand, but if Reynolds is playing Hal Jordan AND Wade Wilson I think thats unoriginal to cast the same guy as the lead in 2 comic book movies. And it kind of seems selfish I mean damn Reynolds you're already 2 comic chracter share the wealth lol. Also, it amazes me how many ppl are turning there back on the Deadpool movie, when last week when Reynolds said Deadpool will break the fourth wall everybody was creaming in there pants.
The thing that made so many people anticipate Star Trek was the wondering if the new cast could live up to the old cast and that made the movie better because they rarely had to cater to a big stars needs.
I'm sure it will be a good movie but my buzz for Green Lantern (2011) died down alot.
