One of our frequent posters, 'BoyToyChris,' recently alerted us that the April issue of Wizard Magazine covers villain details for the sequel to Batman Begins and Ratner on X-Men 3.
Law as Two Face?
The scoop from 'BoyToyChris' states that Ratner considers X3 as the armageddon of the X-Men film franchise and that it is very faithful to the comicbooks. When it comes to the sequel for Batman Begins, David Goyer has through up more than a few villain options.
REGARDING WHAT NEW STUFF THE MOVIE WILL CONTAIN:
RATNER: I might describe this as "X-men Armageddon" he says the film will finally introduce beast, played by Kelsey Grammer ( Frasier ), into the cast: debut the long-awaited Danger room ( the x-men famed training facility ) after it's appearance was cut from the first two films: and make the giant mutant-haunting robots a reality, at least on the big screen, it's the final battle. "Every scene in this film is based on a page from the comics"
But don't believe the hype when it comes to a possible end to the X-men saga with this third movie, according to producer Ralph Winters "There are a lot of stories to pull from " he says with a smile " I don't think anyone is planning this as a final film"
( yep confusing i know )
Also But if one is to believe the " X-men 3 " cast and crew this film is not just a spinoff point for such prequels ( yes prequels ) such as Wolverine, Magneto and young X-men flicks ( and a rumored storm one, too ). It's a new beginning full of endless possibilities and-as many will point out-the most intensive X-men movie script ever read.
Regarding Batman Begins sequel:
The list of possibles for the joker role ok number one is:
And Lachy Hulme
David Goyer had this to say:
If i did write the next film, i would obviously like to retell batman's first encounter with the joker, he revealed " i'd also include Harvey Dent but have him remain Harvey for the duration of the film, then on the third film i'd have him become Two-Face .....
(N o catwoman yet .....bummer )
Harvey Dent possibles:
On top is Liev Schreiber
followed buy Guy Pearce ( who was originally rumoured to have a cameo apearence in the first one ) and Josh Lucas....
I;d go with Lucas ........
That's all so we will have sentinels in the third X flick cool.
The report was original posted in the CanMag Blogs and reposted in the CanMag Forums.
I am still personally hoping for Liev Schreiber (Sum of All Fears) as Harvey Dent. I guess it is a bit too early to be making any major predictions yet... but still.
