His involvment does scare the hell out of me (especially added with the EU shitting that happened a few weeks ago). I liked the first Star Trek. And Lost was good...at first. After the second season it got ridiculous. I can't remember watching anything else of his. Did he do District 9? I did like that.

Not a single director who could be doing this that wouldn't make people nervous, it's too huge a property. JJ is in the perfect point in his career to do it, with the Star Trek flicks he's proven he can use a budget wisely and knows how to construct a good cast. Much like the Star Terk films, this will not please everyone, and will split fans young and old, but he's not Zack Snyder or David Goyer, and has respect for the source material of beloved franchises.

David Goyer should never write alone, but he has great ideas.
Of course, without the Nolans, the Batmantrilogy would've been full of the (sometimes) cringeworthy dialogue we got with Batman Begins (a great film, mind you).

Zack Snyder's only film I actually like is Watchmen, and I really don't care about Abrams having success. Besides, your argument about "will not please everyone" is silly, cause it counts for all movies.

And, Adam, it was Neil Blomkamp who directed District 9.

If you call mysoginy and insulting the fanbase of a beloved character a great idea, then yes! Snyder's films are usually dumb, Watchmen is one of his few that isn't it.

True enough, but I have faith in Abrams. Dude is one of the best for the job. The fact that he's using at least some actual puppets makes me super happy.

The fanbase of a beloved character, you mean Batman or Supes?

I have something against people who demand everything from comicbooks to be translated literally on the screen, but let's not get into that. Man Of Steel was just about ok, had a few miscastings, but at least it wasn't a drag like Superman Returns.

Batman VS Superman will be horrible, you can already see that.

That Obi-wan one is pretty brutal. I wanna see Jar-Jar Binks in Suffocations font with his head grafted onto the machine on the cover of Effigy of the Forgotten. All would be forgiven.

Or maybe just Jar-Jar superimposed into the cover of Cannibal Holocaust.

Google David Goyer Martian Manhunter and read what he recently had to say about him, and about She-Hulk. Dude should not be anywhere NEAR comic book films.

Oh me too, but there's away to write them that feels like a modern interpretation and not a bastardization, Man of Steel falls closer to the latter. Not to mention just not feeling like a cohesive plot.

Batman v Superman will have good parts, I think. As a whole it looks like it'll be pretty weak, though. Still will absolutely clean house in the box office.

Back on topic: Disney will be selling Princess Leia stuff in their Disney Princess section. This is good news.

I've noticed the Star Wars section at the Diznee Store in my mall getting bigger and bigger. Just wait until next fall. You'll see poor Mickey and Doc McStuffins hanging out in the back smoking cigarettes stickering boxes of Bobs Fett action figures.

The Disney Store at the Eaton Centre is slowly becoming equal parts Old-school Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel
