Son of Streak: thornhill: Please. Mark is going to be in this film -- it's his last chance at fame and glory.

This is just the opening salvo in his budget negotiation, where I'm sure he's not going to get anywhere near what he wants.

No, "The Killing Joke" is his last chance at glory. He has been The Joker - not just a good interpretation of The Joker, but THE definitive Joker - for 20 years now. Long after Disney runs Star Wars into the ground and erases all good feeling from the name Skywalker, Batman TAS & the Arkham games will remind people of Hamill's ability.

Seriously, Warner, cast him in the Batman reboot. It is the role he is born to play.


Eh, he was in Birds of Prey... :(
Just dub him like James Earl Jones on Prowse

Hamill congratulates Ledger, and then outdoes him

Hamill beats every other Joker, not just by being good, but by virtue of DCAU playing all facets of the Joker, murderous to comical

Someone will have a bad feeling about this.
Someone will have a limb cut off.

The rest will be a great disappointment.

Gergesa: RoyFokker'sGhost: They really shouldn't do the core three (Luke, Leia, Han) at any other age than that of the actors. Bringing in younger actors wouldn't be fair to the new kids, just like Brandon Routh had no chance of succeeding as Superman since he was expected by the studio to be Christopher Reeves. Just bring in Mark, Carrie, and Harrison, maybe Billy Dee also, for a while to let them pass on the torch to this new generation of heroes. Don't make the new trilogy about them (the Rebellion-era crew), let the new characters and actors forge their own legends.

Put that crack pipe down. The reason Superman Returns was flawed for reasons other than Brandon. The script was the problem.

Under no circumstance should the originals actors be given a major role. Also George Lucas should be kept out as much as possible.


I never said Routh was the problem. The studio's stupidity, desire to have a Richard Donner/Christopher Reeves Superman film without either of them, and the script were the problems. Also, you'll note that I said the old actors should appear, but only to pass the torch to the new generation or to have sideline mentor roles.

fisker:

Luke Skywalker has to rebuild the goddamned Jedi order.

If the new movies do not involve this, then I am not interested in seeing ANY of it. 

I don't really care who plays Luke.

As far as the story goes- it MUST be about the force and the new Jedi order that Luke creates.


No, rebuilding the order is a slow process that will bog down the films the way Republic Parliamentary Procedures bogged down the prequels, among other issues. Look, I was in the original audience back in '77, so I have a long-vested interest in this franchise. But the rebuilding efforts were already done in the 'Jedi Academy' book trilogy, and those were three pretty damn boring books, what with Kip doing whatever he wanted with the Force and the starfighter with the capability to blow up stars. The level of power creep in those books was outrageous and a big turnoff.

If the story of Luke rebuilding the Order needs to be told, then do it via an animated series. That way, you can take the time to tell the story properly and not rush it in three films. The Clone Wars animated series has shown that you can have a series just as engaging, and with more character development, than any of the Star Wars films, The Star Wars movies should be pulp action space operas: fast moving and fast paced.

He is the worst voice of Wolverine however. I don't blame him though, his casting in the role was an awful choice.
 
2012-11-29 05:35:58 AM  

Gordian Cipher: buntz: I don't think Han OR Leia should be in it. It SHOULD be the continuing story of Skywalker. The movies are the Skywalker stories (in MY opinion)

Er... Leia is a Skywalker.


That's right. She is Luke's sister.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: scottydoesntknow: They should test his midi-chlorian level to make sure he's still got it.

/"ooh let's make 'The Force' a bunch of microscopic bacteria that live inside you!"
//Farking stupid

Is it just me or would that mean that the ability use the force could be granted to someone, just inject them. And the Jedi are keeping this from everyone else?

Even if some people aren't good hosts for a midichlorian infection, could a booster grant Jedi powers for a short time?

Damn that was a shiatty but of writing. At least in this story. Maybe you could write something cool with that.


Yeah, like gummiberry juice. The new evil has cloned/kept Luke alive to milk his micichlorians into a delicious berry-flavored, force-infused concoction that is being sold on the black market.  When everyone is super, no one is a jedi!

No.

There is PLENTY of time to tell the stories and plenty of movies that can be made to tell them that have nothing to do with your concept of how films were made in '77.

You want to keep the main dynamics of the force out of the live action films so they can be made into animated series?

STOP

Stop right there.

go home

This is going to be Episode 7. Not some rouge campaign about some unknown Jedi you have never heard of.

Mugato: WhippingBoy: If they really want to do this right, the first scene of the first movie will show Jar Jar dying in a horrific, horrific way.

People are still whining about Jar Jar? Jesus. He caused the rise of the Empire in the second movie, had no lines in the third. What do you want?

How many James Bond movies are there? How many Star Trek films?

Let's start telling your little Star wars side stories in the year 2050, shall we?

I know exactly what you want to see in the next Star wars movies.

You want a 'Han Solo-like' character who runs around with some teenaged boy that just happens to be a little bit conscious of the force but never quite gets it. You want to see them jump around all over the galaxy from planet to planet all while the 'BIG NEW REPUBLIC' stuff happens in the background. Never quite getting a chance to understand it all but get to see all the cool neat stuff that exists in that galaxy on the side. We've already told that story.


Right now, Luke has to rebuild the Jedi Order. We got stuff to do.

Summer Glau's Love Slave: Leo Bloom's Freakout: Cythraul: Is there is a gray side?

[images2.wikia.nocookie.net image 352x800]

Yes, there is and it's great. If they weren't doing sequels, would love an idea I've heard floated on Fark already: Knights of the Old Republic movies.

Now I gotta go play KOTOR 1 again.

/Love that game.
//I, for one, would welcome our Knights of the Old Republic Over-Jedis.


I'm late to the thread because I fired up KOTOR 2 for the umpteenth time yesterday. Love that game! And KotOR shouldn't be a movie, it should be a live action tv series that starts with the first game with lots of gratuitous flash backs to the mandalorian wars, so everyone knows exactly who the exile is when she shows up in season 2 (3?).

/could be AWESOME

Jolee Bindo was one of the best Jedi ever.

spman: Yeah, I'm sure he's just going to tell that dump truck full of money they're going to drive to his house to just turn back around.


Hamill makes $10,000 per episode on Regular Show. I highly doubt that, at his age, he really needs the money. He gets voice-acting work quite easily.
 
2012-11-29 09:37:20 AM  
If they really wanted people to see the movie, just add HK-47

Hell, is already in the current universe.

Actaully, you can scrap the RD-D2/3PO duo for HK-47 and T3-M4, they are more interesting.

Mugato: Nem Wan: Hamill also gets a check for theatrical distribution, all re-releases, including the upcoming 3D conversion. Apparently it's real money, not a "Hollywood accounting" percentage, because Hamill told Howard Stern, "I have nothing to complain about," even though he gets nothing from merchandising and video.

Well Hamill told Kevin Smith that he signed a deal at the beginning where he would get every piece of merchandise created for Star Wars. At the time they thought he was an idiot because no one thought Star Wars would even get a wide release, much less have merchandise. But who cares, that's just what I heard.


Oh yeah he gets THE merchandise. I meant he doesn't get any MONEY from merchandising, from use of his likeness.

The man is sixty one and thoroughly rich. If he gets involved with the new SW movies, it'll be because they have a good story.

I, for one, encourage him to use whatever influence he has to ensure a good story for the last three movies. And if it doesn't work, and he doesn't give his Luke Skywalker Seal of Approval, I'll simply not waste my money on them.

Yes, I need the approval of a sixty one year old voice actor in order to spend money on a movie.

Caine_Hazen: OR you could make it an MMO, that'd be... oh wait...


That's post KOTOR by 350 years... not any reason why we'd need to go that far. You could make the two games and post adventure to Dromund Kaas where...

Well, if you don't know, I'm not going to ruin it for you... :P

Besides, SWTOR is a pretty decent MMO in my experience. Haven't played much end game, but the stories were fun.

Sadly, that's the joke. Storylines are great, but the common, filler quests are all tedious. I only got through one storyline, couldn't face them again to take a second character through.

NetOwl: Mugato: Practical_Draconian: I have given up hope for Star Wars. I only ask for a true-to-form, re-release of Xwing and TIE-Fighter games.

It's strange how much more leeway is given to Star Trek than Star Wars. Most people shiat on two of the three prequels (Revenge of the Sith was fairly well received) yet Star Trek can get away with 10 movies with maybe 4 decent ones? And everyone's foaming at the mouth for the next one, which according to the released synopsis reads like a 24 episode. Eh, whatever.

Star Trek has never been as good, so people's expectations are lower.

Star Wars and Empire routinely show up on lists of the best fims ever made. They continue to be among the most important films of all time, and they will always stand as towering artistic achievements.

Star Trek was a television show. It was a good show, but it will never be mistaken for serious art. The Star Trek movies, even less so.


Star Wars is serious art but Star Trek is not?
