Droog8912: mooseyfate: Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Paul Giamatti is a *good* actor and could bring something to the franchise, subby, just like Alfred Molina did with Spider-Man 2.

Save that Fail tag for yourself.

This. I'll never turn my hose up at a respected actor wanting to take a stab at a Comic Book Movie.

Granted, more than a few of those may push your imagination's limits on "respectable actor", but I felt they were all pretty solid casting decisions with pretty solid actors portraying them. Your mileage may vary.

I like every one of those actors, but Hopkins as Odin sucked donkey nuts. He looked like someone collecting a paycheck, not a trained actor. He dragged the movie down for me.

/Hiddleston as Loki was fantastic, however


If I'd ever seen Hiddleston in anything before Thor, I would have included him for sure. I'm sad that he won't be a villain again anytime soon. And as far as Hopkins goes, I'm not really sure how you could arrive at the conclusion that he sucked donkey nuts, he didn't do too awful much during the course of the movie. What little he did do, I felt he had solid "Odin" vibe about him. Yes, he was clearly just collecting a paycheck, but he wasn't terrible, either. Sometimes all a role requires you to do is show up, chew some scenery, and head back home. I'd say he nailed it. Now if the movie had been called "Odin", I could see the disappointment. Regardless, the "mileage may vary" I tacked on at the end of my post was also whether or not you liked them in their respective movies/roles, not necessarily that you may or may not consider them to be "respected actors".

Let me clarify. I like every one of those actors in those roles displayed, except Hopkins. As Odin, he came off to me as a doddering old fool with no parenting abilities with neither a kingly nor powerful presence. Not exactly the "Allfather" to me.

To me, Alfred Molina as Doc Oc strikes as exactly the point you were making; respected actor playing a questioned role that turned out brilliantly. McKellan, Stewart, Grammer, Jackson, and Downey were perfect for their respective roles; it would have been more surprising if they had performed poorly. The others I either don't know well enough to comment on, or, in Cheadle's case, had no opinion.

HeartBurnKid: Vegan Meat Popsicle: Eddie.
Brock.

Topher.
Grace.

I rest my case.

You say that as if that was a good casting choice, in retrospect

/news flash: it wasn't.


He was perfectly cast, you morons. He was the Anti-Spider-Man -- a goofy, luckless nerd who got super powers and used them to indulge his petty power fantasies and take revenge on people whose only crime was being better than him.

It's the comic book Venom that is an irredeemably stupid waste of time.

I think " the rock" is the best one for this role. He looks tough and big. He looks scary too.

Shostie: I still remember the outrage when they announced that Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker.

go back a couple decades, people were outraged at Michael Keaton as Batman.



go back a couple more decades, people were outraged a black woman playing a maid in the Deep South could be nominated for an Oscar

<i>This is from the video game based on the movie, so he'll probably look like this. A CGI transformation like the Lizard and the version of the Rhino from the last USM cartoon </i>


Is he naked in that picture?!?

I wish Sony would just stop.

Just. Stop.

Shrugging Atlas: With all the praise or hatred of Paul Giamatti I'm surprised more people just aren't complaining about the farking Rhino being in the film regardless of who plays him.


The Rhino seems like one of the most memorable villains, to me, from the old 60's era animated cartoons.
