I've already seen Guardians of the Galaxy twice.

Well that didn't take long.

The guy was hardly David O. Selznick, but IMFDB would be a lot smaller without him.

This might be the first time Aquaman would be more intimidating than either Superman or Batman.

Not to sound racist, but I'd go with a white actor for Aquaman.

And I'm probably the only person on this site who liked Man of Steel.

I don't think there's any reason Aquaman has to be white, and it's not like he has a long live action history like Superman or Batman. Wonder Woman has to be Mediterranean looking, because that's where she's from, but who knows what Atlanteans are supposed to look like. Maybe they'll go all out and cast Hawaiians/Polynesians exclusively to play Atlanteans.

So I saw Expendables 3 and it was boring! I cannot believe that it was boring. They spent too much time trying to developing the new characters but even they got little screen time. In the end nobody got any real meaningful screen time and Jet Li was barely in it. This is by far the worse of the Expendables movies. On the plus note, Antonio Banderas really was into his role, he's got so much energy.

Jet Li was barely in the last one too. Is it just a scheduling thing?

Maybe Stallone's getting too many A-listers and there isn't enough screen time to go around?

I didn't realize until today that Expendables 3 was rated PG-13. If the allure of the franchise was to showcase old action stars, all of whom starred in violent rated R action flicks, what's the point of playing it safe with the PG-13 rating?
