Iron Man 3: New TV Spot Reveals Extremis Soldiers

Iron Man 3 will be hitting theaters in just under a month. That fact, however, is still not stopping the hype train from dropping the occasional surprise on fans who fancy themselves informed. In this case, that surprise comes from yet another new TV spot which may go through the usual routines, but then quickly manages to give us our first look at some of the virus-plagued Extremis Soldiers that will terrifyingly tangle with Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark.

Previous trailers showed us the "before" picture of some hapless guinea pigs as they underwent a procedure set up by villain, The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) to become infected with the Extremis Virus. Developed by scientists, Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall), the experiment was designed to produce "super-soldier" elements like Captain America's, while endowing instant healing abilities. (In the comics, its nanite-based nature allowed Tony to modify it and upgrade his tech significantly.) Indeed, it does provide some cool physical benefits. -- Unfortunately, it also turns the subjects into silvery-skinned-psychos with red glowing eyes and pulsating neon lesions that would give zombies on The Walking Dead a run for their money in the department of unaesthetic excellence. (...Okay, maybe not.)

Clearly, Tony has enough problems with The Mandarin plotting him an exotic and intricate death, guys in choppers wrecking his pad, getting himself stranded in the snow, and his armors seemingly coming to life to creep over him in bed. Things spiral to a point where even poor Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) has to put on his proverbial pants, getting into an Iron Man armor to "Rescue" him. Adding "ashy glowing-eyed zombies" into the mix is certainly not helping.

Iron Man 3 takes up major slack for the CDC when it hits theaters on May 3. Check out the new spot below!

Guardians Of The Galaxy: Zoe Saldana In Talks To Play Gamora

Guardians of the Galaxy may soon have its resident emerald assassin locked in. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Star Trek and Avatar actress, Zoe Saldana is in talks to portray the team's comely cosmic killer, Gamora.

With most of the casting speculation for this Marvel Phase Two project focusing on team leader, Star-Lord, which ultimately went to Chris Pratt and Drax the Destroyer, which recently went to former WWE wrestler and burgeoning actor, Dave Bautista, it seems that the cycle of casting rumors for our big screen Gamora quickly escalated to a virtual lock with this report.

In the comics, the character, Gamora is the last of her species called the Zen Whoberis, who were exterminated by the cult-controlling villain, Magus. (An evil version of cosmic hero, Adam Warlock from an alternate future.) Seeking revenge, she fell into the apprenticeship of the Mad Titan, Thanos (the film's likely villain) where she was endowed with not just powers and deadly combat skills, but brainwashed with a purpose: To destroy anything that opposes her master. However, his gorgeous green-skinned guerrilla ultimately went off the reservation and became a mortal enemy of her former master manipulator. Solidifying her status as a hero, she eventually joins the Guardians of the Galaxy team with, among others, Drax the Destroyer, who, also sporting a green exterior, nurtures an anger-driven origin tale that left him with a personal bone to pick with Thanos.

If the report proves true, then Saldana, a fairly big name, will have nabbed a key role in a third potentially-lucrative film franchise, further-solidifying her status as one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses. With the necessary sinner-slaying experience in the bloody 2011 movie, Columbiana, she would certainly be in familiar elements as Gamora. (And seeing as she had a green-skinned roommate in Star Trek, her well of acting inspiration will certainly be full.)

Guardians of the Galaxy trades in Na'vi blue for Gamora green when it hits theaters on August 1, 2014.

Interstellar: Matthew McConaughey Cast In Nolan's Next Film

Interstellar, the next film from director, Christopher Nolan will apparently feature a bit of redneck stoner surfer vibe. It is being reported that Matthew McConaughey has been cast in The Dark Knight Trilogy visionary's experimental space epic. -- Alright-alright!

At this point, next to nothing has been revealed about the plot of the film itself, much less what McConaughey's role will entail. (Although a preliminary report by Deadline last week speculated that he would play a character named "Cooper.") What is known, is that the space-scifi departure from the superhero genre for Christopher Nolan will be based off the research of renown physics professor, Kip Thorne which theorizes on the utilization of wormholes for the use of time-travel. With a script on hand by the director's brother, Jonathan Nolan (which Christopher may have tweaked), expectations towards this ambitious, likely experimental project from the Nolans are already measured in light years, considering it was the center of a rare co-production/co-distribution deal between major studios, Warner Bros. and Paramount.

For McConaughey, the role could be an important step in the evolution of his acting career. While no stranger to the occasional dramatic role (like the memorable A Time to Kill), the actor is more commonly associated with irreverent parts and is probably still best remembered (besides for his prejudice against shirts,) from his role in 1993's Dazed and Confused as David Wooderson, an aimless, capricious partier who is a bit too old to be socially-familiar with high school students. However, after recent roles in Magic Mike, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Killer Joe, it seems that not only has his status as a bankable star been renewed, but more faith is being taken by studios towards his ability to tackle projects outside the box, genre-wise. This role in Interstellar definitely reflects that.

Interstellar proves that McConaughey gets older, but those red giants in space stay the same age when it hits theaters on November 7, 2014.

Marvel Phase Two Preview Pic Extravaganza

Some light was shed on Marvel's Phase Two set of epic comic book films, which launches on May 3 with Iron Man 3. It seems that the release of the Blu-ray box-set, Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled would unleash a plethora of production art and preview footage for the Marvel Movieverse's upcoming entries.

People who did break out the big bucks to buy that magnificent box were treated to clues leading to a site called BattleofNewYork.net, for which they were provided a code to enter, uncovering an extended version of the Phase Two preview video we saw yesterday with Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige.

The video in question is chock full of sneak peaks at all the current in-production Marvel film projects from next month's Iron Man 3, this fall's Thor: The Dark World, next year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the 2015-set Phase Two grand finale, The Avengers 2. -- Not only that, but we even get a minuscule (pun intended) look at the Phase Three kick-off with fall 2015's Ant-Man, as some of the mythical test footage shot last year by director, Edgar Wright is shown in official capacity for the first time.

While the code-accessible preview video has not been officially released online (I stress, "officially"), a plethora of screen-grabs have bombarded the Internet, providing a much-needed sneak peek for fans who either can't afford the box-set or already own the films and can't justify re-buying them, even with the awesome packaging. Check out the array of pics below!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Reboot Gets Will Arnett

The upcoming live action reboot revival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a new cast member. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the half-shelled heroes' big screen return has cast comedic star, Will Arnett.

While the identity of Arnett's character is momentarily being kept a secret, the report shoots down the obvious choice for prominent male characters by indicating that he will NOT play the sporting-goods-swinging vigilante of the TMNT mythos, Casey Jones. Regardless, Arnett joins a cast of motion-captured Turtles who will accompany Megan Fox, who presumably takes the lead role as signature damsel, April O'Neil.

At this point, Arnett's role is anyone's guess. With all four Turtles already cast in Leonardo (Pete Ploszek), Raphael (Alan Ritchson), Michelangelo (Noel Fisher), and Donatello (Jeremy Howard), the other notable vacancies for known male characters (human or mutant) are for the foursome's sensei and mentor in the human rat, Splinter, the villain who fancies razor-sharp fashion, The Shredder, and sinister scientist, Baxter Stockman. None of those seem to be a realistic fit for the Up All Night and Arrested Development star, Arnett, which might indicate that the role is completely original to this film's storyline. (Which will apparently depict the Turtles as aliens of some kind.)

The role will nevertheless put Arnett in the midst of what may possibly be his biggest film, yet with this major $125 million project produced by the auteur of explosions, Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

Ninja Turtles (as the reboot project is currently known) attempts grandiose sleight-of-hand tricks while playing Europe's "The Final Countdown" when it hits theaters on June 6, 2014.

Transformers 4 Partners With Chinese Company

Next year's return of the Transformers film franchise may be the next film to make content adjustments to court production partnerships in China. It is being reported that Transformers 4 (title not yet confirmed) will work with China-based movie channel, Jiaflix Enterprises in an agreement that will open access to the quickly-expanding film market in the population-brimming nation. -- Not only that, but the robot rampage romp will consequently also do some filming in the red nation, as well.

The news comes just days after the announcement that Iron Man 3, in partnering with Chinese company DMG Entertainment, will actually go so far as to release a different cut of the film for Chinese audiences approved by the notoriously political-censorship-happy State containing new scenes and actors exclusive to their release. While no details have been revealed on what, if anything, will be altered for Transformers 4, it does seem that similar concessions would be made for the Chinese release, considering that Jiaflix Enterprises is an arm of the Administration of Radio Film and Television, controlled by the Chinese government.

At the moment, all that is known is that director, Michael Bay will be aided by the company towards pursuits like:

"Selection of filming sites within China, theatrical promotion, and possible post-production activities in China as well as casting of Chinese actors and actresses in the film."

With Mark Wahlberg stepping in as the main protagonist, along with a set of younger supporting cast members in Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz, it will not only be interesting to see how the the film adjusts to the post-Shia LaBeouf era, but how the franchise known just as much for its unadulterated product placement as it is for giant robots will manifest with its new Chinese mandate.

Transformers 4 introduces a giant robot Chairman Mao that transforms into...a chair when it hits theaters (here in 'Murica, dammit!) on June 27, 2014.

The Avengers 2 Begins Shooting In 2014, Marvel Talks Phase Two

The Avengers 2 may still be over two years away, but the rabidly-anticipated sequel to the $1.5 billion grossing mega-movie now has its reservation set for Pinewood-Shepperton in the UK to begin shooting in just under a year in early 2014.

While the first film did most of its shooting throughout various locations in the U.S. from New Mexico, New York, and Pennsylvania, that tradition will not continue with the sequel. According to a report from ScreenDaily, it seems that this sequel will have our returning assembled Avengers doing a good portion of their shoot at Shepperton Studios. (Where recent productions like Jack Ryan, Maleficent, and The Muppets have shot.) With the shoot of one of the biggest sequels of all time laying down roots in their area, the production's impending arrival will no doubt be seen as an economic boon for locals on so many levels.

So, could we possibly glean any bit of information from this news? At this point, nothing even close to a hint has been revealed about the film's plot. However, the first film's exterior-heavy shooting throughout the U.S. was certainly reflective plot-wise of the film we ultimately got. Thus, if The Avengers 2 is looking to confine most of its shoot to a studio in England (presumably in front of a series of green screens), one might be able to conjecture that much of the film's events will take Marvel's dream team to more exotic...I daresay "unearthly" locations.

While Marvel Studios' "Phase Two" series of connected films kicks-off with Iron Man 3 next month, we know that events will ultimately go "cosmic," based on the Thanos cameo at the end of The Avengers, coupled with next year's big-screen debut of The Guardians of the Galaxy. With The Avengers 2 being the planed denouement of the Phase Two era, one would think that it would also be the culmination of this continued evolution in Marvel's Movieverse, rather than just being a sequel. (Yeah, I read into all of that from "they're shooting in a studio in England.")

The Avengers 2 will have you telling it to shut-up and take your money when it hits theaters on May 1, 2015. In the meantime, check below for a new video of Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige talking about the direction of Phase Two. (Even if it's just to promote a box-set of the Phase One movies.)

G.I. Joe: Retaliation: Third Film Moves Forward

It is being reported that after the successful weekend of its sophomore effort that the G.I. Joe film franchise will continue soldiering on with a third film.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation certainly did make the most of this past Easter weekend earning $132 million worldwide, outdoing the global opening of the 2009 first film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra by 35%. In the U.S., it would also deliver the second-best performance of that holiday weekend with $41.2 million (only behind the $61.2 million in 2010's Clash of the Titans). Overall, Retaliation looks to be well on track to outdo the $303 million global take of its predecessor.

Whether it was the continually-growing box-office clout of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, the presence of Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki's Lady Jaye looking ravishing in that red dress, or just the strength of the franchise itself, the movie managed to find an audience. It's especially impressive considering how fans and insiders had already written the film off as a disaster just waiting to happen. It not only managed to overcome the stigma of a year-long delay for a questionable 3D conversion, but it did so while going into the fray with a director completely new to the action/comic-book/fanboy-centric genre of films in Jon Chu. Indeed, there were many gambles on this film that ultimately paid off in a huge way.

No details have been given about the "whens" or the "whats" (other than the fact it will be in 3D), but there is certainly a wealth of material in the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero classic comic book, cartoon, and toy canon from which to draw for a third film. While this film series does not exactly adhere closely to the classics, it could potentially use classic concepts such as: A vengeance-seeking Destro forming his own faction in the Iron Grenadiers. The unruly and destructive biker gang, The Dreadnoks. The eccentrically-evil Crimson Twins, Tomax and Xamot, who like to finish each others' sentences. Or, maybe even Cobra Emperor, Serpentor; a tyrant cloned from a milkshake of DNA taken from the worst despots in the world's history. -- The possibilities are endless.

Iron Man 3: Alternate Version To Hit China

Iron Man 3 is getting ready to hit theaters worldwide in the coming months. However, it is being reported that moviegoers in the People's Republic of China will be getting a different version of the movie than everyone else. -- And get this, while the potential for ethically-questionable state-approved censorship is likely, the Chinese version will actually contain bonus footage!

During the genesis of the armored Avenger's third solo outing, an agreement between parties, Disney and Marvel Studios was made with Chinese company, DMG Entertainment to co-distribute the film in their country. The benefits to that relationship, besides new sponsors and promotional access to the largest single national population in the world was some aid towards including "Chinese elements" in the film; a cause that was also helped by some late-addition filming in capital, Beijing last December. Indeed, it does appear that this alternate version of the film will attempt on some level to cater to the (State-approved) sensibilities of Chinese audiences. (I shudder to think what they'll do with Don Cheadle's Iron Patriot.)

However, the changes go beyond just scenery. The Chinese edit of the film will not only feature scenes that are not available in the other worldwide releases, but will also feature ACTORS exclusive to this version, as well. Most notably among the additions, is a role for Chinese starlet, Fin Fang Foom...err, Michael Bisping...sorry, Fan Bingbing. Interestingly enough, the gorgeous actress already has her Marvel Comics dance card punched over at Fox with a role in next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

It's certainly not the first time that "adjustments" were made on the part of Hollywood to cater to the demands of the ever-growing Chinese film market. The most notable recent example of this was the remake of Red Dawn, whose depiction of the Chinese as enemy invaders ignited controversy, forcing a long post-production effort to recontextualize the antagonists into the North Koreans. Also, (and this is just pure speculation,) the fact that Ben Kingsley's role of Iron Man 3 villain, The Mandarin, who is traditionally of Chinese ethnicity was altered to be more ambiguous may not be such a coincidence, after all.

Iron Man 3 (OUR patriotic, baseball, bald eagles, and apple pie version of it, anyway) hits theaters on May 3. At this point, no date has been announced for the altered Chinese release.

Man Of Steel Adds Smallville Actor...But As Who?

We've known for quite some time that this summer's Superman reboot, Man of Steel would focus on star, Henry Cavill's antagonistic tanglings with Michael Shannon's escaped Kryptonian war criminal, General Zod. However, after a choice revelation from actor, Mackenzie Gray, a rumor has now been ignited concerning the character considered Superman's most iconic rival, Lex Luthor.

Fans of the long-running Superman TV series, Smallville may recall that Gray played a cloned version of Supes' follicularly-challenged foe in a 2010 episode of the show. (Whose real version was played by fan fave, Michael Rosenbaum.) It was a brief, but memorable appearance, which seemed especially relevant to a recent interview in which Gray confirms that he has a role in the upcoming Man of Steel movie; a fact that he would also reiterate that he had permission to reveal as long as he omitted any details.

However, a small tidbit of those details may have emerged from the sleuths over at Aint It Cool News, whose anonymous insider close to the film disclosed that the still-unnamed role by Gray will be "substantial." Thus, Gray, who already possess a passing connection to Lex Luthor, has become the center of the latest round of rumors speculating that the avaricious, evil industrialist will, in fact, be in the film. If true, then Gray would be joining Gene Hackman and Kevin Spacey in the prestigious club of actors who have played Luthor on the big screen.

Check out the interview in which Gray confirms his Man of Steel role just below!

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Gets A New Female Ape

It appears that next year's sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be featuring some monkey love. (And you won't even have to wait patiently and creepily at the zoo to see it.) It is being reported that actress, Judy Greer will don a motion capture suit to play Cornelia, the amorous ape love interest of Andy Serkis' returning chimp chieftain, Caesar.

Greer actually brings a resume of TV and film appearances that is quite vast. Known for her roles in Three Kings, The Descendants, an array of romcoms, and her run on Arrested Development, she is currently a regular on Two and a Half Men and is also the voice of Cheryl Tunt on Archer. She now takes this role of Cornelia, which was likely inspired by the ape character, Dr. Cornelius, famously played by Roddy McDowall in the original Planet of the Apes film. Monkey couple, Cornelia and Caesar (Caenelia?) will run parallel to the lead human couple comprised of Keri Russell and Jason Clarke.

Cornelia actually appeared briefly in the previous film, 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes played by dancer, Devyn Dalton. Now, with the role expanded, the experience for Greer will actually fulfill a dream...well, that of her husband, who she muses is "obsessed" with Planet of the Apes and is a collector of various Apes-related nicknacks. She further reveals in the report that the obsession even manifested in the form of a chimp husband and wife cake topper at their wedding.

Greer joins the ever-growing cast of this primate prequel-sequel (minus previous stars, James Franco and Freida Pinto) that features the great Gary Oldman, Terry Notary, Kodi Smit-McPhee, as well as the aforementioned Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, and Andy Serkis.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes gets busy in the ape apocalypse when it hits theaters on May 23, 2014.

Kick-Ass 2: New Trailer And Poster Focuses On Hit-Girl

A new restricted international trailer for Kick-Ass 2 has arrived that shifts focus from Aaron Taylor-Johnson's titular green-spandex-sporter to Chloë Grace Moretz's Hit-Girl as the fledgling femme-fatale gives the old college try...of adjusting to life in high school.

Otherwise known as Mindy Macready, she was raised from birth by her vigilante father, Damon (played by Nicolas Cage in the first film) to follow in his criminal-killing footsteps. Mindy's brief attempt to live a normal life, going to school and trying out for the cheerleading squad seems to leave her flat on the count of it not including activities allowing her reap the blood of the wicked with extreme prejudice. (Which is way more exciting than glee club.) If this school happens to have any "mean girls," then it's only a matter of time before one of them makes the horrific mistake of telling her that a black cape makes her look fat and may soon be adding "reconstructive plastic surgery" to their lists of activities.

The film's overall plot, which was covered sufficiently in the debut trailer, is also revisited, showing Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl's recruitment into a group of journeyman vigilantes lead by Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes, as well as Christopher Mintz-Plasse's revenge-seeking Chris D'Amico recruiting an evil team of his own, while becoming the world's first legitimate supervillain called The Motherf**ker.

Kick-Ass 2 redefines the meaning of "school spirit" with indiscriminately violent shots to the genitals of both genders when it hits theaters on August 16. Check out the new trailer (which, again, is restricted and full of naughty words), accompanied by a new Hit-Girl character poster. It's all just below!

Transformers 4 Nabs Its Female Lead

The upcoming fourth film in the Transformers franchise now has a confirmed female lead. Director, Michael Bay has confirmed via his Twitter, that actress, Nicola Peltz has landed a coveted lead spot in the robot rampage romp.

Peltz, who appeared in the notorious The Last Airbender, can be currently seen on the new A&E Psycho prequel TV series, Bates Motel as the romantic interest of the young man destined to don drag and deal death in a shower. She will now follow a sacred tradition upheld by Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whitely of being the film's resident "babe" amongst Bay's monolithic metamorphic anthropomorphs. (Which is a lot more fun to say than simply "Transformers.") It is speculated that she will play the daughter of Mark Wahlberg's main character, while playing romantically opposite to a character from newcomer, Jack Reynor.

The news probably delivered a satisfying moment for news site, Twitch, who back in December actually reported that Peltz, along with Aussie actor, Brenton Thwaites would be the fourquel's featured young couple, only to be debunked. It turns out there was some veracity to their report. (Well 50% of it, anyway.) Now, the wild young coed who's trying to tame the creepy young Norman Bates will tangle with a different kind of loose cannon: GIANT ROBOTS WHO BLOW S**T UP.

At the moment, practically nothing is known about the film's plot (despite a recent widely-publicized false report), however, with the clock ticking closer towards the film's projected release date, you can bet those details won't be left a mystery for too long.

Transformers 4 (title not yet confirmed) uses Burger King-sponsored Decepticons to squash the Bates Motel in slow-motion when it hits theaters on June 27, 2014.

The Wolverine: First Full Trailer Arrives At Last

It's here, folks! The Wolverine has finally released a full-length proper trailer...and it seems to be a merciless montage of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine getting his ass kicked.

My fellow fans, our long national nightmare is over. Indeed, the time for teasers, tweasers, and cheesers have passed and the adamantium-aligned assbeater's excursion to The Land of the Rising Sun comes into comprehensible view. Our pal, Logan has clearly been drowning sorrows over lost loves in Canadian taverns while getting into fights with drunken rabble dressed as lumberjacks, when the mysterious she-ninja, Yukio (Rila Fukushima) appears. The fearsome femme forces him to turn the other cheek (which at the moment had chunks of some idiot's glass stuck in it) and whisks the mournful mutant over to Japan where a man whose life Logan saved many years ago during The War has a proposition he may be interested in taking. While there, an old flame of his, Mariko (Tao Okamoto) reaches out for help with a dilemma containing connections to his own issues that may not be coincidental.

While we've seen Hugh Jackman's Wolverine in four previous films as the grizzled claw-swinging super-mutant who decimates with reckless abandon, this trailer seems to make clear that he'll be playing the role of the proverbial pin cushion quite a bit in this film. Sure, Logan's holding his own, but the numbers in this battle are clearly lopsided as Logan, with the occasional help of Yukio, tangles with hoards of ninjas, Yakuza-esque gun-toting gangsters, The Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee), the vengeful Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova), and his most formidable foe yet, A HIGH SPEED TRAIN.

The Wolverine tries for some reason to uninstall one of the most awesome physical specs of all time when it hits theaters on July 26. Check out the debut trailer in both international and domestic forms below...NOW!

Escape From New York Remake To Cast Tom Hardy Or Jason Statham?

The newly-announced remake of Escape from New York may already have its candidates for main character, Snake Plissken down to two. According to a report from The New York Daily News, either Tom Hardy or Jason Statham could stand to inherit the cycloptic, badass mantel of the role made famous in the 1981 original film by Kurt Russell.

Hardy, who had recent breakout turns in Inception, Warrior, and proved he could be somewhat funny in action-romcom, This Means War, would give a career-defining performance as Bane in last summer's The Dark Knight Rises, making him a household name. While a go as the new Snake Plissken would undoubtedly build upon an already-impressive resume, Hardy also happens to be gearing up for the release of his starring role in the reinvention of another 1980's post-apocalyptic franchise in next year's Mad Max: Fury Road. Thus, for him, he may be wary of potential remake overkill.

In Statham, we have an actor who, with a signature cockney accent, has carved out quite a niche as the headliner for a steady stream of action flicks over the years, notably with The Transporter series, The Expendables series, and in the upcoming Fast & Furious 6. He's certainly one of the more capable action protagonists, but his landing the role may depend on whether he can emulate the kind of grizzled, smart-alecky, "why the hell am I even here?" demeanor that could be neccessary for the new Snake to be, well, Snake.

At the moment, nothing is confirmed, as the NYDN report was based off unnamed sources. In fact, the names of Gerard Butler and Jeremy Renner were previously in the mix at one point in time, and for all we know, may still be in the running. It's a fact that led to comments from the duo who put together classics like the original Escape from New York, The Thing, and Big Trouble in Little China: John Carpenter and Kurt Russell. In an interview published today with Empire, the duo reunited for a reflection on the aforementioned great trilogy of 80's genre films and also made comments on the search for the new Snake that might prove germane to this report, given that two Brits were named as candidates for the role.

Check out what they had to say on the matter below!
