Another episode of “Read’s Reads” from Cosmic Book News Cosblog writer, Ryan Read, is up – and you can watch it right here! This time, Ryan reviews Heroes For Hire #4, The Annihilators #1/Rocket & Groot #1 and Guarding The Globe #4. Ryan loved Rocket & Groot, gave high remarks for Heroes For Hire and …
Bradley Cooper was in contention to play Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern movie, but was beat out by Ryan Reynolds.
It was reported that Cooper was in the lead for the role of Barry Allen as Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green and Greg Berlanti have worked on the story with Guggenheim and Berlanti on the script.
The actor responded reluctantly with:
â€œWell I auditioned for the The Green Lantern and didnâ€™t get it so Iâ€™m reluctant to put on the cape again.â€
Cooper is currently starring in the sci-fi move Limitless with Robert DeNiro that sees a former cocaine-addict who discovers a top-secret drug which bestows him with super human abilities.
Check out the trailer for Limitless below and here for a few clips from the movie featuring Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro in action.
Limitless is in theaters March 18th.
Here are some behind the scenes images from the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007).
Images come via Doug Jones, who portrayed the Sentinel of the Spaceways.
The first six feature a test of Doug Jones getting make-up applied, two images how they did some of the Surfer’s movements, The Thing (Michael Chilkis) getting touched up, a double of Doom, and the sixth with Chris Evans as “Johnny Thing.”
I always thought this movie was pretty awesome and felt Jones did the Surfer well. It actually never bothered me that they didn’t show Galactus – I suppose you could argue that his silhouette appeared over the rings of Saturn (if I recall, correctly).
I wasn’t a big fan of Jessica Alba as the Invisible Woman or Julian McMahon as Doctor Doom, not that the acting really mattered all that much.
Still – it was a fun movie!
