SuckerPunch, Captain America & X-Men
If you think that heroes are only for the brave and survival of the fittest? Think again. The next few months will be hotter than summer...
Make way for SuckerPunch, Captain America: The First Avenger and X-Men: First Class~
Last year, I've already made an overview of SuckerPunch thru my old blog, and up till now, I'm hoping Zack Snyder will not disappoint us since he was also known for his previous productions of 300 and Watchmen.
He calls this "Alice in Wonderland with guns." If you don't believe it, check out the art and real-life babes in action:
There's also dragons, bombers and classic weapons - very big guns. This story focus on their dreams wild imaginations in order for them to gain freedom from a mental institution.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything...
Next stop: Captain America - The First Avenger
You'll remember Chris Evans as one of the evil exes in Scott Pilgrim VS The World or Human Torch / Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four. Now, he's yet to have another major role as Captain America.
The Red Skull will be played by Hugo Weaving, the star for V for Vendetta, Megatron's voice, Elrond of Lord of the Rings, and of course, Agent Smith of the Matrix.
The setting was actually during World War II, so for the non-comic book readers out there, don't be surprised if there was a hero based on actual history dates. He was actually in suspended animation that's why he was still young when The Avengers were created.
Last flick: X-Men - First Class
Long before Professor X was confined in a wheelchair and bald, and before Magneto was his archnemesis, they were bestfriends. And long before your favorite characters were born, yes, they were the founders of "school for gifted youngsters."
James McAvoy plays the role of young Charles Xavier; the actor was famous for his recent lead role in Wanted and other movies such as Atonement with Keira Knightley and The Chronicles of Narnia.
Michael Fassbender will be Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto) who also starred in 300 and Inglorious Basterds.
Flop or not, most avid fans of the directors, comic books, writers or actors & actresses will surely fall in line with extra popcorn & drinks in their hands.
