She's like half Japanese.

That's what she looks like anyways.

I don't really see how that could matter though.

I don't get bothered when the Kingpin is black or whatever, cause who cares? That's not what he's about. (I do care that Daredevil sucked, but that's a seperate issue).

Hmm

What if superman was a girl? Or Spiderman was played by Freddie Prinze Junior, or maybe a cat?

Sometimes casting decisions bug me. The Kingpin one doesnt because I've never seen Daredevil and I don't think I ever will. But I'm not one of those geeks that flip out when Spiderman has biological web shooters and "OH MY GOD HE BUILT THEM IN THE COMIC BOOK BOYCOTT THE MOVIE KILL SAM RAIMI I NEED POON IN THE WORST WAY!!!"

Spiderman being played by Freddie Prinze Junior is very different than Kingpin being played by a black man.

I would much rather see a black Spiderman, played by a good actor, then a crappy one by Freddie Prinze Junior.

Kingpin being Kingpin has nothing to do with him being white. So it doesn't matter what colour the person that plays him is.

Luke Cage, Hero for Hire on the other hand, is partially defined by being black. So when you cast a non-black actor as him, you'd ruin him.

Getting upset by a crappy actor being cast I can understand. Being upset because a certain actor isn't the right race or doesn't have the right look... usually doesn't make much sense to me. Hell, Michael Keaton made the best Batman ever, and he certainly doesn't look like a superhero.

And Devon Aoki played Miho.

And really, biological web shooters make more sense.

But what if...

The movie looks really good...but I've never read any of the comic books and am not familiar with the characters in anyway. Will this inhibit my enjoyment of the film?

I don't think so.

The movie is pretty much a direct translation of the comic book.

And you didn't need to know anything to read the comic, so you should be fine.

You should be fine.

Laura: You've taken a lover?
The Bruce Willis?
That's sweet.

have you made a t-shirt yet that says "have you seen my boyfriend" with mr willis' picture underneath?!?!?!?

!
Posted by cosmicfish on Apr 07, 2005
no! i forgot. i will though, tonight. it will be hilarious.

more t-shirt ideas anyone?

YES!
Posted by weberm1 on Apr 07, 2005
Laura, a t-shirt with an old school picture of bob barker would be awesome. I have always wanted one of those, but have no idea where to find one.

so great.

robots are cool too, but not as funny as bob would be.

and the bruce willis t-shirt would be great. i would tell you to make one with val kilmer on it if you lived in toronto, as toronto seems to love the val kilmer. in one day in variouls locations in the city, i saw his face on buildings or his name spray painted somewhere. it was neat.

Val Kilmer

I know the guy who does the Val Kilmer stuff all over the city. He works at the Vice store...hooks me up with a discount too!

T-Shirts
Posted by mike on Apr 08, 2005
I've always thought a t-shirt that says "contents under pressure" with the appropriate WHIMIS symbol would be kinda awesome. Maybe with an arrow pointing up to the head or down to the crotch.

Or a shirt that says "This side up" with an arrow like a box label.
