Zooey Deschanel is being considered as Daily Bugle secretary Betty Brant in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, the role delightfully captured by Elizabeth Banks in that super-old black and white version that came out a hundred years ago. Or, like, 5 minutes ago, what have you. Andrew Garfield (as Spidey) and Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy) will co-star.

Extra! Extra! THINGS ARE HAPPENING!

 Stick around to the end of the post for some exciting updates in Marla land!

Christopher Nolan has revealed the catchy title of his third Batman flick, The Dark Knight Rises. He rules out The Riddler as the film’s villain, which leaves…who? Deadshot? Catwoman? Poison Ivy? Harley Quinn? Mr. Freeze?! WHO WILL IT BE?

Extra! Extra! Wonder Woman is getting the shaft again!

Ugh. So although Hollywood will spit out a dozen movies a year with random, no-big-deal MALE comic book characters, one of the greatest superheroes of all time who happens to be a woman can’t get one single damned feature film. The long-touted Wonder Woman movie is now a television show. Oh AND?! It’s being written/produced by the abysmal David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal). THIS IS BULLSHIT.

And we’ve got some news from NYCC regarding the Deadpool movie and which other Marvel characters we can expect to see, including…Colossus! The coolest X-Man ever! Obvs Ryan Reynolds will not reprise his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine because he’s got bigger, greener, lanternier fish to fry.

Speaking of our least favorite comic book movie of all time, serious-business director Darren Aronofsky is considering following the immense critical success of Black Swan with a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Yes, okay, that sounds reasonable utterly insane and made up. (Read my review of Wolverine here.) Continue reading

Zombieland

Posted in A+ Review, Film Review, Horror Movie Review, Quickie Review with tags , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2010 by xymarla

I’m going to keep this one short, because I was almost certainly the last person in America to see this movie, so you’re probably all, “Duh, Marla! Way to jump on the late train!”

Zombieland is riotous and original, perfectly timed at 88 breathless minutes that are jam-packed with action, superb effects, priceless one-liners and a surprising amount of heart. Jesse Eisenberg plays (of course) the awkward and nerdy Columbus, who is uniquely suited to survive the zombie apocalypse due to his neuroses, paranoia and cowardice. He meets up with Tallahassee, a reckless, Twinkie-obsessed, redneck Woody Harrelson at his very best. I’m not kidding—this movie could have starred ONLY Woody Harrelson and it still would have been my favorite movie ever.
