[Ed. Note: One of my new favorite things is to make Photo Boy write about any of the 8,000 comic book movies set to come out in the next three years because like most of the general movie-going public, he has no fucking clue who half of these characters are, so it's fun to see the reaction of someone who doesn't have every single of them in action figure form somewhere in his basement. Also, Monday's his busiest day putting together The Crap We Missed, so he's going to be extra pissy about this. Enjoy. - SW]

It’s time for me to ignorantly snark on comic book movie casting, a subject I truly only get amped about after seeing the finished product and going, “Wow, what a terrible choice.” (Looking right at you, Dane DeHaan‘s Harry Osborn) So, here’s a quote Fish pulled that’s relevant to this topic yet reads like Sanskrit to me. Via The Wrap:
Tom Hardy was once rumored to be in contention for “Doctor Strange,” though he has recently been courted for WB’s “Suicide Squad” and the title role in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” so don’t expect to see him join the MCU anytime soon.
As far as whether Tom Hardy will be in one of these movies I’m definitely going to watch even if it’s cast entirely with Muppets, who gives a shit? These movies are almost two years away from theaters and Ebola’s going to kill us all by then if Obama’s plan goes accordingly, so let’s look at my favorite quote from this piece instead:
Ryan Gosling’s name was recently thrown into the fray as well, and while he has avoided blockbuster fare in the past, he’s now a father with a family to think of –
Yep, Ryan Gosling might have to start taking parts like this, or it could be back to the mall food court on the weekends. So, if you think it’s irresponsible for Fish to shirk these posts off on me instead of giving you an informed, comic-savvy opinion, maybe try pills. Or talking to someone. Real people’s faces make expressions when they speak, creating the context and nuance of human interacti– and you’re already posting reaction gifs in the comments. Wonderful, I think we’re done here.
