Bullshit. This was a rumor started by the Daily Mail, which is just a rag that writes unsubstantiated rumors to sell copies.

That said, thank you for your continued work Dragon. Your posts are really the only reason I come back to this board.

They probably stole it from a reddit post - that's their favourite journalistic move. Also not proofreading any of their headlines, which are error-riddled to the point of I think bots create them.

Excellent news! We have really been enjoying this show. Hopefully they can maintain the quality of the first season in their second season. (At least what we've seen of it so far.)

MARVEL ZOMBIES---comic book writer Mark Millar posted that Marvel Studios is developing a live-action project based on the comic book, "(if my sources are correct) a little live-action Marvel Zombies further down the line, but you never heard that from me."


I will believe this when I see it. A film like this only works if Disney throws an Avengers Infinity War/Endgame level budget to make it and is able to get the vast majority of the MCU actors to reprise their roles. I just don't see there being a big enough audience for something like that. Yes, there is a history of Marvel Zombies in the comics, and the What-If? episode was fun, but is there anywhere near the level of interest needed to get it off the ground?

It may well be a Grade A - B.S rumour, but can I just say, I'd LOVE to see Phoebe Waller Bridge become the new Indiana Jones.
It would be a HOOT (and I also must say, I liked her in that BBC comedy series and I find her to be the most quirkily/offbeat sexually attractive young lady I've seen in ages).

Percy Herbert (great name!) was a bit of a legend in British cinema, he was in so many low budget war films, & comedy films & all sorts, he worked with so many people (he was also in many big films like, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Guns of Navarone & Mutiny on the Bounty, & not forgetting the TV western, Cimarron Strip (1968) with Stuart Whitman). He should have written a bio, I bet he had some great stories to tell.

...& where war's concerned, like many actors of his time he fought in the real thing, he was captured by the Japanese army and interned in a POW camp for 4 years. He once spent six months in the cooler for stealing a tin of corned beef.

Sad thing is its not so unbelievable. So who knows? Probably ends up being true even if the news is "fake".

Yes it is. If Spielberg didn't do it with Ratboy at the end of Indy 4, like hell a new director is gonna try that with someone else's trademark franchise. Plus, it cuts too close to Lara Croft.

"Ratboy" as you call him didn't take over the role because (A) he was a douchebag and Spielberg hated him. (B) Crystal Skull was universally panned. And the agenda in Hollywood (and KK) is out there for all to see.

I really do enjoy threads that expose the misogynistic tendencies of it's user base when they're presented with just the idea of a female successor to a male character. It's never about 'Can they make it work?' but always 'How dare they even try!'. We haven't even seen a preview to this movie yet.

Come on. It's not like the things that made Indiana Jones a trademark for Spielberg were on full display with 'Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'. Outside of Temple of Doom, the only thing Spielberg has done with Indiana Jones is repeat the Raiders' storyline only with less effort on his part to maintain audience's suspension of disbelief.


Plus, it cuts too close to Lara Croft.


Maybe you haven't been keeping up on current Hollywood trends, but cutting too close to something else isn't really a bad thing in and of itself. How many people have compared 'Nobody' to 'John Wick' yet still came out loving both movies? It's ok to make something like something else so long as it's able to stand on it's own.

And seriously, Lara Croft? You have not seen enough Phoebe Waller-Bridge material if you think that's the only kind of character she'll be playing in this franchise. Phoebe has a personality and charm that would be completely wasted on a character like that. That's not to say that Lara Croft is a bad character or that Phoebe shouldn't play her even if she wanted to, but if you ask people who know her work about being in an Indiana Jones movie, Lara Croft will not enter their minds once.

I really enjoy threads that show the pot calling the kettle black in the first sentence.

I'm so burnt out responding to those kinda trite comments. Nicely said, short and sweet.
