    It's hard to deny the amazing-ness of The Dark Knight. But it's also easy to claim the wonder-ness of Batman Begins.

    Apples and Oranges?

    (Heath Ledger's Joker is the obvious mind-blowing centerpiece of The Dark Knight, but I give serious props to Cillian Murphy in Batman Begins. You can't ask for a better modern Scarecrow.)

    When I think about it, my two favourite things about the Dark Knight -the Joker and Two-Face- are the things most evocative of the feel of Begins.

    And yeah, the Scarecrow is awesome, but I think a lot of my love of Begins belongs with Gotham itself. God I missed that rail system in the sequels.

    Marvel one-shot: Agent Carter

    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/k6DLXj4x2xXkOc4tsBR


    Gotta tell you all: this has me jonesing for a full 1940's S.H.I.E.L.D. movie something fierce. It's also shot my hype for The Winter Soldier through the roof.

    EDIT: Apparently the link is down, but typing it into dailymotion's search should yield results. And just in case THOSE go down, then good luck, because anything else I post will probably go down as well.

    But seriously, seek it out. It is SO worth it.

    Probably Scarlet Witch. Yeah... Scarlet Witch.

    Also heard that Bradley Cooper will probably be voicing Rocket Raccoon.

    Elizabeth Olsen is a fantastic actress, but as the Scarlet Witch... Uh... hm...

    I don't know. Can we go back in time and give the role of Kitty Pryde to her instead of Page? (I love Page and all, but she is just not Kitty in the slightest.)

    Ellen Page is a perfect Kitty Pryde. Only Kiernan Shipka would be better.

    Eh...

    I mean, considering what she was given to work with in X3 it probably isn't fair to judge her, but Page as a person is too droll. Kitty is much more upbeat and chipper. Much more... Buffy, for a lack of a better comparison.

    Shipka would be pretty dang awesome if we could somehow get an appropriately aged Kitty.
    Though, I will argue my case for Olsen as a more grown up, Astonshing X-men era Kitty Pryde if need be.

    Kitty may be caring and optimistic, but she has an air of cynicism surrounding it and she's always very self-righteous and intent on showing off that she's smarter than everyone else, even the older Kitty (so literally Ellen Page). Claremont wrote her like this in the early '00s until Whedon ignored all of that for '80s characterization and a little girl crush.

    Nothing against Page, but in pretty much everything I've ever seen her in, including interviews, she doesn't have the energy. And the way she talks (speech-wise, nothing to do with her voice) is... it just seems impossible for her to convey Kitty's. From Juno, to Inception, to real life, she has this cadence and air about her that just doesn't work. She's witty and hilarious, but I don't get any real cynicism from her. Though that might be because from Twitter to interviews she's an incredibly earnest person.

    I beg entirely to differ on your opinion of how Whedon did Kitty. But that's an entire other argument in and of itself.

    It's like 75% confirmed right now, so... Better get use to it.

    I saw Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook. I thought he was pretty darn good in that. I think I could see him playing Rocket Raccoon.

    Oh yeah, and Hangover. He's actually pretty good at playing crazy bad boys.

    But Rocket isn't exactly a crazy bad boy. He's just some miserable angry raccoon who isn't actually a raccoon.

    I suppose playing Marvel vs Capcom 3 has just made me associate Rocket with having like a cockney accent or just an English one really.

    Cooper could be good....but we'll see. I'm not too big on the idea currently.

    Go watch Silver Linings Playbook. His character in that film is a miserable angry man who really doesn't want to be miserable or angry, and Cooper is absolutely fantastic in the role. There's a reason he got nominated for Best Actor.

    If Cooper is Rocket Raccoon, I would be incredibly happy with the choice.

    ........What?

    Like, all this talk of Bradley Cooper being Flash or Green Latern, and he's Rocket Raccoon?!? WHAT!?!

    He's a great actor, but he'd be much better suited being physically there in another role or something. But maybe he's okay. Maybe he can pulled off a cockney accent.

    I've seen SLP and it was great. I'm just still not sure if I can imagine his voice on Rocket.

    He's like Idris Elba, being attached to every role ever conceived.

    Cooper is an annoying asshole in everything that isn't SLP.
