The Best Of James Cameron’s Reddit AMA

JAME

Director James Cameron, he of AVATAR, TITANIC, and THE ABYSS, took part in one of Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” sessions yesterday and the results were …not nearly as pompous as I was expecting. Dude was actually funny, likable, and very fanboy friendly. Impressive. Almost every interview I’ve read or seen with the guy prior to this has made me think he was an egomaniac who unapologetically borrowed elements from other works for his own without giving credit and actually thought he really was the “King Of The World”. After this, I might have to re-evaluate that opinion a bit.

DC Comics TV: First Looks At THE FLASH, GOTHAM, And CONSTANTINE

THE FLASH

Variety has scored a first look at Matt Ryan as the titular character of NBC’s upcoming supernatural drama CONSTANTINE and …it’s not bad. Not bad at all. Ryan definitely looks more like his DC/Vertigo comic counterpart than Keanu Reeves in the 2005 feature film …but neither holds a candle to Castiel on SUPERNATURAL. Mischa Collins, lack of British accent aside, is the living embodiment of John Constantine, working-class magician, occult detective, con man. But that’s neither here nor there. Ryan is playing the character and will continue doing so if the pilot – from David S. Goyer (THE DARK KNIGHT), Neil Marshall (GAME OF THRONES), and Daniel Cerone (DEXTER) – ends up going to series.

The First Trailer For Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Has Arrived! Plus, 65 Hi-Res Screencaps!!

GOTG

The wait is over! Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for writer/director James Gunn’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY online and …it’s AWESOME!! Seriously, the only word I am able to conjure up at the moment is awesome. AWESOME.

Okay, I really can’t just drop an “AWESOME!” and call it a day so here’s some more in-depth fanwanking. Not only is the quality action and spectacle fanboys and girls have come to expect from Marvel Studios present and accounted for, but so is Gunn’s off-kilter brand of humor (see SUPER and SLITHER), style (in two and a half minutes, Gunn manages to give gentle nods to THE FIFTH ELEMENT, THE ICE PIRATES, TITAN AE, FIREFLY, FARSCAPE, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, THE A-TEAM, and STAR WARS), and dialogue (“What a bunch of a-holes!”). The marketing guys aren’t even attempting to low-ball that GOTG isn’t your average blockbuster. I like that. You should too.

To heavily paraphrase the tagline from Richard Donner’s SUPERMAN: “You’ll Believe Andy From PARKS AND REC, An MMA Fighter, Green-Skinned Uhura, A Heavily Armed Raccoon, And A Sentient Tree Can Kick Ass.
