- Hugh Jackman and his contract to play as Wolverine [obviously] to continue;
Although Hugh Jackman hasn't officially been attached to X-Men:Days Of Future's Past, it's pretty obvious that the iconic Wolverine will make at least a cameo in the film. [anyone remember his cameo in X-Men: First Class?] It'd be safe to assume it's only fair that after all these work outs and keeping big/muscular-like for the X-Men films that he has to do [to keep the character looking buff] he'd probably want some kind of break.. [I know I would!] However, Rumor seems to have it, from the [very]questionable source known as National Enquirer that Fox has reportedly offered a $100 million deal to Mr. Jackman to continue to play his iconic role an additional four times after X-Men: Days of Future Past. Given the fact that Jeff Wadlow is developing an X-FORCE film, [read my thoughts on this news here] and Fox consultant Mark Millar has been teasing a major announcement about the future of the X-Men franchise within two years, it's pretty safe to assume it'd be good to want to secure Jackman's role in for the future. Question is Will he continue playing Wolverine or could he become the Ultimate Marvel Comics version of the time-travelling mutant Cable? Time will tell..
- Jim Carrey POSSIBLY playing Carnage in Amazing Spider-Man reboot[s]?
This is one of the more questionable ones [hence why it's a rumor rather than fact].. but it seems to be that Jim Carrey could be playing none other than Cletus Kasady who is more commonly known to comic fans as CARNAGE! [as seen above] The one thing that makes this kind of strange is knowing that earlier this year, Jim Carrey talked about how he regrets being part of Kick-Ass 2 due to the ultra violent nature. HOWEVER! For those unaware, Carnage is extremely violent; more so than Colonel Stars&Stripes![Carrey's role in Kick-Ass 2] He is a psychotic criminal, who spent [a lot of] time at Ravencroft and when Venom's spawn used him as a host, he became the terrifying villain known only as Carnage. With a Venom script that was written years ago and Sony interested in the character whether or not Jim Carrey is part of those plans remains to be known. This is why I think it's questionable. Jim Carrey stated he regrets Kick-Ass 2 because of the violence, and yet there is a chance he's playing someone more violent? ..strange indeed.
- Wait! so who's playing Batman, then?
Arguably one of [if not]the biggest announcement to have come out of Comic-Con 2013 was Zack Snyder's on-stage announcement that his sequel to Man of Steel would include none other than The Dark Knight himself: Batman! The only catch here is Christian Bale has confirmed on more than a couple occasions that his time playing Bruce Wayne is long over.. Naturally, this means that rumors and reports are running around trying to find candidates that Snyder, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment all approve of to wear The Dark Knight's signature cape and cowl. According to London's Express website, who have been hyping up the British invasion of American superheroes [this includes the idea of the likes of Andrew Garfield playing Peter Parker and/or Henry Cavill as Clark Kent], they seem to claim that their source at over at Warner Bros. is looking at none other than Orlando Bloom- so naturally, another British man- as the [current] top contender to play Batman with Henry Cavill as Superman and Orlando Bloom may even get the role before they do a casting call!
So what do you feel about all this.. is Jim Carrey really the right role for Carnage? and what about Orlando Bloom as The Dark Knight?
