Two new movies dominated discussion in the Twitter Report feed this morning, and the verdicts varied. While the new "Captain America: The First Avenger" trailer attracted scads of exclamation marks about its cast and teases, Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch," meanwhile, has folks like Brian Michael Bendis and Skottie Young a little more wary, and a couple of micro-reviews that showed up were even less friendly.
On a personal note, all the film has to do for me is be as good as or better than Rob Bowman's "Reign of Fire." If Snyder does that much, I'll be fine.
Elsewhere, Mark Millar mentioned that he's got yet another film project in the works, bringing his Millarworld slate up to five by his count. Place your bets on what it might be and see if you're on the same page as Dave Gibbons and Kevin Maguire about Chris Evans down below.
