Cyborg is likely going to be in this movie or the next one according to Henry Cavill.

Call me when they finally get around to making the Ragman movie.
12/06/2013 8:55pm, #24I want to see an AMAZON though, not a waif. Wonder Woman is all about strength and ferocity. She is a killer and warrior. She needs to look like one. If she doesn't, it just won't work for me.
Remember, the casting is important because the chances are good that the actors behind the masks in these movies (Cavill, Affleck, Gadot, Reynolds etc.) are most likely going to be the one's who will portray these characters in the JLA movie.
They still have to find someone for The Flash..
Watchmen sucked as a comic book ? The movie sucked ?
Zack Snyder sucks as a director ?
What have you boys been sniffing ?
Watchmen is one of the most intelligently written series of comic books ever produced. Alan Moore was exploring themes well ahead of other people in the medium at the time Watchmen was written. I actually thought the ending in the movie was better than the conclusion in the comics.
300 was a just a plain fun movie.
The comics aren't really that fantastic, actually.
300 Rise Of An Empire - which tells the story of the Battle of Salamis is due out soon, and I'm betting it is going to be pretty good."

Watchmen is over-rated.

Check it out. This is a trailer for movie, starring person:
Not looking forward to this one, but Paul Giamatti as the Rhino sounds fucking hilarious so I'll give it a watch. Anybody here see Win Win? The dude who played the wrestler beat one of my junior college teammates in the NJ state finals. Cool to see him play such an awesome role alongside such an awesome actor.
Anyway, seeing as how we're on the subject of comic books and ****, I was wondering what everybody's favorite comic book fights are?
Spider-Man vs. The Foreigner in Spectacular Spider-Man #129.
Finding a Spider-Man back issue written by Peter David is like finding an onion ring in your french fries. It's better than sex. The Foreigner was a James Bondian supervillain whom Spidey had just learned was fucking his girlfriend at the time, the Black Cat. When Spidey went over to his penthouse to waste the non-powered assassin, however, he soon realized the Foreigner possessed such a prodigious amount of skill that he was easily a match for the webslinger.
Magneto beats the **** out of the Avengers in Super-Villain Team Up #14.
Dr. Doom takes over the minds of everybody in the world, but still wants to **** with people for sport. After humiliating Magneto in Latveria, he gives humanity a chance by allowing him to get help and try to defeat him. Magneto heads off to seek the Avengers, but when he finds them he's forced to attack because they assume he's invading their mansion. He effortlessly dominates all of them before getting sucker punched by the Beast (At the time, an Avenger).
Daredevil vs. Punisher in Daredevil #184.
Frank Miller followed up his god-smashing Elektra storyline with another pretty awesome arc pitting Daredevil against the Punisher. Both heroes are trying to bring in a drug dealer who has his men push the junk on little kids. Daredevil wants to bring him in legally, while the Punisher wants to execute him. This doesn't bode well with Murdock, who tries to stop the Punisher twice but gets thumped on both occasions. Finally, after seemingly calling a truce with Castle, he takes a pistol off a gunned down mobster and just shoots the Punisher before he has time to draw. Daredevil got **** done that day.
Superduperman vs. Captain Marbles in Mad #4.
People talk a lot about Superman's battle with Captain Marvel in Kingdom Come, which was great, but the first time the characters crossed hands was in the pages of Mad (Then a comic book rather than a magazine). Fawcett Comic's Captain Marvel was a blatant ripoff of the Man of Steel, but had managed to outstrip Supes in popularity for years until DC finally managed to sue for infringement in the 1950's. The satirical fight reflects the contentious legal battle between the two companies. You can read the whole thing here:

Superman vs. The Elite from Action Comics #775. Seeing how scary Superman can be when he gets really angry was awesome.
X-Men vs. The Shi'ar Imperial Guard in Uncanny X-Men #136. Talk about an epic conclusion to one of the best X-men stories of all time!
12/07/2013 2:29pm, #28I was wondering what everybody's favorite comic book fights are?
Here is one that has been on my list since I was about eight years old, and still stands as one of my all-time faves from the Marvel Universe.
Doc Samson Vs The Rhino waaaay back in Incredible Hulk #218
It takes place in an abandoned mining town, where the Rhino is holed up after derailing a train to steal a package on board for whoever hired him out this particular time.
Its a great slug-fest with Samson and the brute Rhino smashing each other through walls and knocking each other around until finally one of them (guess who ?) ends up falling down into an old, dried-up well.

Another good one from ASM is when Spidey had to try and stop The Juggernaut. A tall order for The X-Men, let alone poor old web-head all on his own !
Amazing Spider-Man #230
Spider-Man has had to face-off against pretty much every baddie from the Marvel Universe at one point or another, and always finds a way to come out on top.
Its hard to fathom why the Kingpin can give Spidey the kind of competition toe-to-toe that he seems to be able to when you consider Spider-Man's superior strength. I guess we have to assume he is always pulling his punches against the tough, but very mortal Wilson Fisk.
They have had some doozies over the years, but this one is still my favorite. It takes place in the Kingpin's Mansion :
