JB: I look forward to Ving Rhames as Sivana.

Ving Rhames as Sivana? Really? I hadn't heard that, and I wouldn't think of him.


I believe JB was being sarcastic.

At least, I hope he was!

Speaking of grass-roots movements, Brandon Molale campaigned long and hard to land the role but I don't know if he was even actually considered by this production.  Probably too much of an unknown to land the lead and he's "old" for the part now.  Not to mention pretty bald.  I guess a wig would work but maybe they didn't want to deal with it?

I certainly thought Zachary Levi worked as Fandral in the Thor movies, but this I have a hard time seeing.

The Vhing Rhames jokes remind me this movie won't be an adaptation of Captain Marvel at all, but a New Coke Captain-Marvel-In-Name-Only piece of garbage. So what if Vhing Rhamhes plays Sivana if it's some NotSuperman rip-off crap? If I want a Superman rip-off I can buy Superman.

Kevin Brown - read all of my post, lad. I know that Mr. Byrne was being sarcastic. I tried my hand at the same... though of course, I can never equal the master. :)

Twenty years ago, I thought character actor Carlos Gomez had a good look for the Big Red Cheese. . .

The Wrap reports that actor Mark Strong, who played Sinestro in GL, is in talks to play Sivana.

Levi's definitely the right personality but the wrong body type.  But I thought Gal Gadot was too skinny for Wonder Woman and she worked out great. We shall see how much he can bulk up (or if they do Cap's loose-fitting shirt, it may not matter).

The thing that really gets me is the BLACK ADAM movie.  Nobody in the general public knows the character (the Joker and Dr. Doom haven't even had solo movies), it's not a great name (not out of context at least), and the character is one of the most obvious "opposite of the hero" numbers--it doesn't really make sense for him to have a solo movie ever.  I can only think they have the Rock committed and don't want to wait four or five more years to introduce him in the SHAZAM sequel.

The aggravating thing is that they have in recent years built him up as DC's answer to the Sub-Mariner, and I imagine his movie will play that way more than just "Captain Marvel's enemy."  So, like THE INCREDIBLES, the copy gets a movie before the original.

Back in grumpy old fan mode, I think Captain Marvel is most charming when it takes a juvenile approach. I loved his stories in World's Finest, with Don Newton art, but I think they were still whimsical.
I'd rather see an animated version on the Cartoon Network (though not so broad like Teen Titans Go!) than a film whose creators will want to make dark or grim to appeal to adults.
By the way, besides animated films, are there any movies aimed primarily at children now?
