I saw Pacific Rim.

I don't know what to say, all I can say I didn't expect what I saw.

Best summer film by far, nothing I've seen comes close to beating it. Everyone needs to go watch it, it deserves to have a sequel.

And in regards to giant monsters...



The king returns next year.

I guess Fox has said at Comic-con that 'Apocalypse' is a big part of the future of the X-Men films and his appearance will result in spin-off films similar to what Marvel has done with the Avengers.

This would be good, if Fox knew how to fucking make unforgettable comicbook movies :(

Batman/Superman movie.

Anyway, if you guys want to see a good 'Flash' based movie, give Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox a try. Alternative timeline, massive deaths, great introduction to The Flash.

Recommended. 8/10.

The Dark Man of Steel? XD

I wonder what it'll be called...and damn it! Put in the Green Lantern too!

Man...I wish there was a Wonder Woman film now from Nolan. :(
Big fan of Claymore, Miria in particular.

Currently playing Yakuza 0.

Should be:
Man of Steel
The World's Finest
Justice League

Or at least, "Man of Steel 2" shouldn't be titled Man of Steel 2. Leave the numbered titles to the Marvel films. DC should have a unique title for each film, just as we saw with Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Given it'll star both Superman and Batman, I think it would be best to refer to both characters in the title. Either directly with the to-the-point "Superman & Batman" or something like "The World's Finest". Actually, "The World's Finest" would make sense, given most past DC films have strayed away from directly placing the name of the superhero in the title (Batman Begins is the exception). The logo speaks for itself.

But all the Marvel movie sequels after Iron Man 3 aren't numbered. :V (Well, aside from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but that's from Sony)

Still, they have the hero's name and a subtitle. Would be weird for DC to go the "Man of Steel 2" or "Man of Steel: The World's Finest" route.

Jonah Hex and Green Lantern are 2010 and 2011 films and DC has a history of numbering titles, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel are the only exceptions.

Though I doubt they are going to call this Man of Steel 2 when Batman is present, its going to have a title that references both of them.

Well, I'd assume lesser characters will have their names as the title. I can't see Jonah Hex and Green Lantern being called anything else. But I think Superman and Batman films are past having the hero names in the title. Unless, of course, they go for "Superman & Batman", but I'm thinking "The World's Finest" or something along those lines will be the route they take.

I think they like that those sorts of titles that work well at the very end of the film. It's a Goyer/Nolan thing.

Legendary Pictures Godzilla design has been leaked, looks like Godzilla, will feature multiple monster mash, has Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe in it, are you hyped now?

(The video/images are from a special event Legendary Pictures hosted for fans and the actual film is not found footage for anyone uninformed enough to make the mistake.)

So I guess the Superman/Batman movie will most likely be called Batman vs Superman or Superman vs Batman.

>.> great, what I DIDN'T WANT.

I still don't get why Avengers: Age of Ultron even has that subtitle despite that it won't even adapt the actual Age of Ultron story that came out earlier this year.

Saw The Wolverine last night, loved it. Like First Class in 2011, it was the surprise of the summer. I went in with low expectations and ended up having a great time! Story moves at a solid pace, and there are several twists and turns. Jackman is in top form. Music and editing is well done. Really, a solid film. Plays out much more like a Bourne or Bond film. Totally beats out Iron Man 3 and enjoyed it more than Man of Steel, which I am a fan of.

The mid-credits scene is great, really can't wait for Days of Future Past now. In fact, The Wolverine pretty much washed by mind clean of X-Men Origins and The Last Stand. The shit I hated in The Last Stand especially has been rectified in The Wolverine. We get an angry Wolverine again, I thought Logan was too damn toned down in Last Stand. Also, [spoiler]great to see him dealing with Jean's death, including several cameos from the character in several dream sequences. Prof X alive and Magneto with powers is great to see again. Now, Days of Future Past just needs to bring Jean and Cyclops back and I'll be happy.[/spoiler]

8.5/10 from me.
