What about Tone Fucking Loc in Ace Ventura, or LL Cool J in Deep Blue Sea; Eminem's riveting performance in 8 mile or any film with Queen La-fucking-tifa? Rappers suck fucking ass at acting. So full of themselves and thinking living a fantasy life tranfers well to the big screen. Wankers. More|

miketang, your comment actually gives this film much more hope than the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen... in that film, they had 5 or more huge names to try to give enough screen time to. by casting unknowns (largely), they're ommiting any obligation towards screen time bias for anyone, so they can focus on story etc... rather than bowing to the actors egos.

But on the other hand... from reading these updates about the JLA, it sounds like they are making a TV, similar to Smallville. Now dont get me wrong, Smallville is a good series and has re-invented some of the story, but it has worked well as it is on the small screen and has time to evolve with a yo More|

e too. I can't begin to describe just how stupid an idea it is to have two other big screen Batman and Superman actors playing those parts while the other two Routh and Bale franchises are still playing. A terrible idea dreamt up by a suit with $$ signs in his eyes. It could also be potentially harming to the other two franchises, if it turns out to be dreadful. Which it really really will.....

Come on, this can't work. It's just a pity the Wonder Woman movie's been put on hold for so long. They could've found a way to pursuade Christian and Brandon to come on board too and there's your central three right there, the rest would 've been a bonus.

To be honest, I'm content with no Justice League movie. It would be better off as an animated movie (2D or 3D). As much as I would love to see a JLA movie, the casting might ruin it all.
