If this is the summer of Villains Instead of Heroes

Villains and Heroes

Tom Hiddleston made a great save as Thor’s brother Loki. shot tradition, simple evil spirit moves underdeveloped that comics tend to have, Loki was a complex villain multiple layers, which kept the audience guessing at every turn. Thor Loki is both the film and he is the god of thunder. The same could possibly apply to all evil in the upcoming films comics and summer.

Starting with X-Men: First Class, the film focuses on the relationship between Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto) and the beginnings of the X-Men. Seeing that X-Men Origins: Magneto was canceled, the first class is likely that at some point in the film portrays the origin of Magneto as a Holocaust survivor. This will certainly make things compelling, and it is much more interesting than the emergence of a rich telepath Charles Xavier. the portrait of Sir Ian McKellen Magneto in X-Men trilogy was probably the best villain of the comic book movie of all time. His character was layered, tormented and was so easy to sympathize with him as it was to hate him. We now have the opportunity to see their origin on the screen, the rest of X-Men: First Class is just filler. Calling villain Magneto best comic book movie of all time is no disrespect to Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight, I just thought Magneto McKellen was much more relevant to the source of comic material.

I’ll skip Green Lantern, because they do not know enough about the main villain Hector Hammond (played by Peter Sarsgaard). I’m not very interested in what they did to the entity Parallax intergalactic fear. a giant cloud of special effects is seems. Why Hollywood can not do justice to its galactic monsters? It’s like when the consumer world Marvel Galactus became a giant cloud Fantastic 4 Rise of the Silver Surfer. It is an insult to the source material.

Sinestro, head of the Green Lantern Corps is where it gets interesting. Hopefully the film the fall of Sinestro so we have a classic hero turned bad story in Green Lantern was created on.

Then Hugo Weaving is the Red Skull. Originally created as a Nazi leader and the man to Adolf Hitler, for obvious reasons, Nazism is likely to be mitigated in Captain America: The First Avenger. Instead, we will probably see weaving in charge of a despicable terrorist organization known as Hydra. While I understand completely why the Nazi theme was blunted, I hope that has not been completely eliminated, since it is an essential element of character red skull. Like the Joker, Red Skull is the same / opposite of the hero. Captain America is democracy and freedom as the Red Skull is Communism and dictatorship. If the movie Captain America provides that, then we must be in a great battle. The Red Skull is obsessed with world domination, and the movie needs to touch on the origin of the skull to be credible. It can not just be a supremacy that is obsessed with the Nazi regime, because there must be a compelling reason behind his madness.
