Movie thoughts 12-14-2013

War Machine, or at least Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes, will be in Avengers Age of Ultron.  More news on this as it develops. It might be fun.  I thought he was Iron Patriot now but I guess the change back to War Machine is not that difficult to explain.

There will apparently be Venom and Sinister Six spin-off films.  Venom could be interesting. I am not sure about the Sinister Six though.  When they get together, they usually want to kill Spider-man.  A Sinister Six film almost by definition needs Spider-man.  I think Venom can more easily handle a stand alone movie.

The remakes keep coming.  Naked Gun is slated to be remade.  Ed Helms is going to star. Sure, this we get but not Remo Williams?

Jet Li has a new movie, Badges of Fury.  It probably won’t play in my city but it will probably be worth getting on  DVD.

The fate of Fast and Furious 7 is up in the air after the death of Paul Walker.  It is an awkward position for the studio. Recasting Walker’s part might come across as crass or insensitive.  Any type of end for his character that seems similar to his real life death could be seen as exploiting his death.
