§ WHITEOUT got blanked at the box office, taking in an ultra-modest $5.1 million and garnering punishing reviews. On the plus side, Kate Beckinsale is still hot.
§ Jeffrey Dean Morgan is considering the role of Lobo, and why not?
I continued by asking Morgan if there was a comic book character in particular that he had his eye on playing. “You know, they’re making Lobo right now,” the actor replied. “That would be cool. Lobo would be very cool. I don’t think that I’m as big as Lobo is, but if you could, transplant Mickey Rourke’s body on my head, that would be just great. But I don’t know. It’s an untapped world for me as well. Every time I kind of hear about something I go out and get the book or I look it up. We’ll see. You’re always looking for material that’s kind of smart and fun and this seems to be where it is right now. The studios are really gravitating towards it. More than I’ve ever seen them gravitate towards anything in a long time. Comic books are really the thing right now and I don’t see that going away for at least the next couple of years.”
§ There’s a FANTASTIC FOUR franchise reboot afoot, but Chris Evans isn’t going to be involved, probably. Evans portrayed the Human Torch and was considered a bright spot by many who had to endure the duo of films. That is sad, because we won’t be able to post more pictures of Gratuitous Chris Evans Towel Scenes.
§ We weren’t all that sure that there was a Smurfs movie coming out, but there is. But it has been delayed because Gargamel stole the negatives or something.
