  • Sure don’t look like an ex-medical doctor turned Master of the Mystic Arts to me. But what do I know? I would’ve chosen Tom Skeritt,0,214,317_AL.jpg

  • Ugh, sorry wrong link. I meant this:

    If Cumberbatch is indeed to the choice to play the Sorcerer Supreme I’m good with that, he’s good solid choice. The guy can act and has an old screen presence that will be required for the role. Actually I think he Leto, Hawke, Reeves and Phoenix we’re among some of the best rumored choices for the role IMO.

    im fine with it.. NOW how about some panther news? Marvel.. whats up with that?

  • He’d be great, but at 81, he is too big a risk to not be around for three solo films.?

    Very true, it’s time for Marvel to drop some OFFICIAL LEGITIMATE news on Black Panther. You can’t just keep saying we have him in our future plans and we’re working on it, they’ve been singing that same damn played out tune for too many years now. t’s time Marvel started truly stepping up their line up with diversity by confirming Black Panther and Ms. Marvel.

  • He’ll always be 40 yrs old in my mind. LOL

  • I’m the same way with Michael Biehn 😉
