Batman, Ricky Gervais and the future, by George Lucas.
So…Been interesting lately, hasn’t it? Let’s take a look at it all, shall we? Ricky Gervais has apparently pissed lots of people off, by being funny at the Golden Globes, there have been new castings for the new Batman film and finally, the Green Hornet has revealed that George Lucas is predicting the future.
Yup, in the same week where it’s been announced that Sir Ricky of Gervais is going to appear in ‘The Office” (US Version), he hosted the Golden Globes. He was very funny. Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino thought so. A huge amount of actors/actresses on Twitter etc seemed to think so. @nikki_griffin found it funny. However, certain ‘Victims’ didn’t seem to like it. GET A SENSE OF HUMOUR! For christ sake, what is it? Are you in a fragile place? Are you sensitive that your careers are downward bound? Are you afraid that the mistakes that you’ve made, clearly in the public eye, have been mentioned? For the sake of the ratings of the Globes, get RG back in for next year and then ‘even more’ people will watch.
No, it’s not just a gratuitous picture of Anne Hathaway, it’s there because she’s been cast as Catwoman in ‘Dark Knight Rises’. In addition, Tom Hardy has been cast as Bane. Great casting for both, I think and having Hardy in a Batman film is going to be special. Anyone that’s seen Inception, Bronson, Star Trek: Nemesis (Sorry, I had to) and Wuthering Heights, will know how good a range this guy has got. Anne Hathaway? Great actress actually and I think she fits the bill for a new Catwoman. Shame we have to wait until July next year for the release.
Picture Quote: “Listen Lucas, if you tell me there’s no time to make the 3D Star Wars flicks and Kato will bust a cap!”
In other superhero news, The Green Hornet has been hanging out with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, apparently and had the dubious pleasure of listening to Georgie boy, revealing that we’re all going to die in 2012. TYPICAL, Lucas tells us the ending, but doesn’t tell us how we get there. Not a surprise really, given he can’t count to 6 properly. Basically, the mathematically challenged one, spent 20 minutes talking about how the end is nigh, much to Seth Rogen’s surprise (For those who live in a cave, Seth Rogen is the Green Hornet. Okay, he’s not REALLY the Green Hornet, that’s Britt Reid, he just played him in the recent film). Now, of course, through a spokes person, Lucas has said he was only joking. George Lucas has a sense of humour? Who knew? I’ll have to check with @Daniel_Logan @AdrianneCurry . Now we know that the world will end next year, we can all book flights on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic ships and we’ll be saved!
