It feels to me like Depp was basically pigeonholed into those sort of roles after the breakout success of the Pirates of the Carribean movies. Depp is a genuinely talented actor but he was crammed into that niche after Pirates succeeded. Or at least that's my take on it.Here’s hoping they don’t muck up The Lone Ranger, though as long as they stay away from that self-indulgent combination that is Bruckheimer + Depp it PROBABLY won’t be as bad… should note that I don’t dislike Depp, so much as I’ve grown tired of his “quirky eccentric” schtick (itself having killed my appreciation for Jack Sparrow, after the Franchise Zombie that PotC became did half the job already). Though I take some schadenfreude in River Phoenix seemingly taking his place in Tim Burton’s Creator Posse (which hopefully sets River on a happier final destination than OTL), I also hope Depp at least has a decent career (speaking of which, what’s the status of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? ITTL? Asking also because Di Caprio…)
My idea was that Dafoe's batsuit would feature a more muted version of the Adam Wat batsuit's color scheme. Which, ironically, would make him a bit more stealthy.I honestly thought the same of Dafoe’s batsuit; it does tickle me that it actually has COLOUR however, hindsight has made the last few decades of live-action Movie Superheroes Wear Black that is Batman a bit… dull. And tired-out.
Keaton's batsuit was iconic. But so many iterations of the all-black batsuit have made it tiresome.
Candy's death was a result of working on the forgettable film Wagons East. Butterflying that away would be the easiest step since it's a 1994 film. I wonder how much longer he could have survived had he survived long enough to lose a bunch of weight like Drew Carey did in OTL.Candy, OTOH? There’s personal feelings for me, in regards to the disgusting way that the industry treats its actors. By the account of a woman who was once John Hughes’ penpal, Hughes stated he was disillusioned with Hollywood for its practices and felt that they’d worked John Candy, a dear friend of his, to death, disregarding his poor health until it did him in. In all honesty, a part of me strongly suspects that Carrie Fisher’s death two decades later rings similar alarms; a woman in her late 50s, who had put on considerable weight and struggled with drugs, having to work her ass off because Disney wanted to turn Star Wars into a yearly franchise? I cannot shake the feeling that if Carrie had been given more time and breathing room, instead of being run ragged by her schedule (for which the blame doesn’t lie SOLELY with Disney, but they can’t have helped the situation) she might have decreased the chance of the heart attack that killed her happening (or at least increased her chances of survival), much like John C. had his “Hollywood’s favourite uncle” rep exploited by the system as John H. suspected had happened.
I agree. Williams not spending so much of his career on mediocre films would be a good thing.I won’t deny there’s some wishful thinking, but I don’t think I’m being unrealistic by suggesting such. It’s not like I’m advocating for Robin Williams’ survival, just that his career not becoming a shell of itself (sadly, Williams was diagnosed post-mortem as having Lewy Bodies dementia, which can itself cause Parkinson’s Disease-like symptoms, so even if he lasts longer I expect his condition will continue to deteriorate even if his support network prevents his suicide… make of that what you will).
Oh… that’s. That suggestion is just pure, unadulterated EVIL.
I love it.
Hmm… what say you to my addendum: that he be Simba’s Evil Twin?
So both of them are played by the same actor? If you can get anactor who can do both roles, brilliant.
I hadn’t strictly considered that, but… Sure, Why Not?
It seems like the best solution. Why hire two actors when one would suffice? I'd have "Scar" be a dark reflection of Simba. Or Simba without his redeeming qualities.Just imagine one actor having to balance young Simba and young Scar and another Simba and Scar. Maybe you'd have at least one guy asking for the Academy to nominate at least one of them for Best Actor.
And while Broderick was actually pretty good as Simba in OTL he wouldn't be up to also playing the villain.
