So a date's set for the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey film.

And the airhead bints on my Facebook are already squealing in anticipation. :ugh:

Watched Jack the Giant Slayer earlier on.
About a million times better than Man of Steel.

Apparently, Marvel have asked Vin Diesel directly for a meeting. anyone want to take a guess at who he'll be playing? My guess is Thanos (a heavily maked up role and he has the deep voice).

I know that sounds stupid, but part of the charm for me was the underpants on the outfit and the lycra. DAY LYCRA.


I quite enjoyed it, as did most of the people I know who have seen it. It's nothing fantastic but it's decent popcorn fun. Head over to the Comic Book Movie website and you'll read hundreds of posts from DC fans saying it's 'the best movie ever' and all that sort of nonsense. It also got a 4 and a half star review from SFX. Give it a shot...I often find when I go in with low expectations I come out at least thinking 'well, it wasn't that bad!'.

I'm guessing either Thanos or Taskmaster.

Or as a really REALLY longshot, Vision?
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

Well Scarlet Witch will be in Avengers 2 and Ant Man is scheduled after that so Vision is very possible in the future but that would be quite some time away. I think they're are going to play off his physical shape.

I might see Man of Steel tonight if I can be bothered. Are we saying Superman Returns is better than Man of Steel?
I see the bad moon arising.

I'd rate them about the same. Both as painfully average as each other.
MOS just about shades it because of the opening twenty minutes.
Personally, I wouldn't waste my money though.










The very idea of Vin Diesel appearing in any upcoming Marvel adaptations fills me with vomit.

I have a cinema pass so the only thing I'll be wasting is my time. Just feels wrong not to see a superhero film in the cinema ha ha.
