UPDATE: First, beforehand. I notice many of you people calling most of my editorials "satirical". I apologize if your opinions do not come in terms with my own opinions, and I would also like to say whatever I have written comes only from me (truly).

"I am not a troll, I have serious opinions, serious comments and I have an education."

Hello everyone. When it comes to the audience wanting to watch a movie it should also not be confused while said audience is watching the movie. Here's where there is a major problem involving this situation. Joaquin Phoenix was recently announced on the list to play the villain, Lex Luthor, in the next Superman film. We already had Michael Shannon before as General Zod. Both of the actors look the same, or shall I say similar. Wait, no they look exactly the same - like each other. They both have acting styles which are too similar. They are actors who have both gone crazy; I mean totally crazy. Just look at this photo and tell me what you see. Just tell me I am not crazy, that you see the resemblance.

People are going to get confused beyond anything if they have Phoenix in the role I mean it's going to be critics saying "LOOK IT'S GENERAL ZOD!" and all this sort of stuff. If they were smart they would have chosen Kevin Spacey back as Lex Luthor again. Yes I know Superman Returns was lackluster but Kevin Spacey OWNED the role as Lex Luthor and they should really continue with him. Not a guy that looks like a guy who played a villain from the last movie no my gosh no! CONFUSION is going to be in the air people. Never get an actor who looks like another actor playing another actor or whatever you get what I am saying. It's like instead of Robert Downey Jr changing into character for Tropic Thunder they replaced him with some other actor to confuse the audience. Instead Robert Downey Jr was still Robert Downey Jr. See that is prominent success. Now to continue on with the next topic of this editorial.


Next the Argo writer disaster. Oh no, what are you doing this can not compute. So your telling me the best guy you can get for rewrites is some guy who wrote Argo!? He hasn't wrote a comic book film before or any comic book movie before for all we know he isn't a fan of Batman or Superman. It's going to be a disaster why couldn't they get an actual writer who know's comic book film opposed to a writer who...what? The Argo writer is going to make it look like an..eek...drama! Oh gosh an overly dramatic superhero film what we all fear the most! So much emotion and so much detailed emotion everywhere! Batman is going to be crying like Sam Raimi Spider-Man every single second and then we are going to have Superman flying with a box of tissues. Look guys Argo may have been a winner but it was no comic book film at all, it was a dramatic film. Plus Argo was already based on a story beforehand so it was not really so much original. Come on people at least David Goyer has written comic book films before if they weren't going to pick anyone else I would have been fine with Goyer on that matter. Yes Goyer got some hate for Man of Steel but my gosh I least he wrote in some awesome action sequences! Right guys is that all we need just awesome action sequences, agree with me right? I don't know get someone like Roberto Orci that guy who did Transformers to do rewrites if needed or Mark Steven Johnson. Yes okay Mark Steven Johnson he um wrote Daredevil and Ghost Rider including having directed those films. Must be great friends with Affleck and he definitely knows what a comic book film is. Get him to do the rewrites for Batman vs Superman not some unknown random writer #2 or some other guy.

Sorry if this was really crazy for me to write this but I had too. Honest thoughts and opinions people nothing to get serious about wait I am serious about this. So what do you think submit comments below about this and seeyah guys next time or next reality!

No idea what you're trying to accomplish with these "editorials"..but by all means, keep wasting your time on them.

Even though it was meant in satire, it ain't a terrible point...
EpitomeofAwesome - 12/18/2013, 4:15 PM
Wow, the first Jacky article that's actually serious. Either that, or it's just not funny, and I took it seriously...

Like if they had gotten Jeffrey Dean Morgan to be Hammer, I would've have been so confused. His slight similar appearance to RDJ would've made IM2 downright unwatchable.

marvel studios is winning?

What? The update was hard enough to understand with this poor writing you seen to have, but the first sentence of your editorial is completely messed up.
UltimateWarrior - 12/18/2013, 7:13 PM
Also, these two actors look nothing alike. Shia?

Ummm......I assume you're being a smart-butt, but in case you're not, you do realize that Luthor is bald, right? That should take care of that problem. As for the writer, will wait & see.

Jacky just trolled all of you.

I seriously think you should have someone on hand to proofread your work and scour for grammar, spelling and sentence structure.

Never make it a point to preface ANYTHING you say or write with "I have an education." It makes you sound like Fredo.

Dc/warner are so far behind MARVEL, they're in a rushing state of desperation. In the least they want to catch up to Fox or Sony. So much so they turned the Mos sequel into a [frick]ing Batman reboot and half ass Justice league movie. lol Pathetic. They want that Avengers money. They'll even cluster[frick] their own universe to get it...

You know what this article needs?

I hope he plays Luthor and gets to hell in Supes face "AM I NOT MERCIFUL??"
