    Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to just wipe everybody's memories and then have them pay to see the original again?

    Honestly, when I saw the trailer show up in my feed, my first reaction was "Do we need another MIB movie?"

    Then I watched the trailer. I do want to see this one. I'd love to see Hemsworth become the Eddie Murphy of a new generation when it comes to action comedies.

    But the main character is blue instead of white. Doesn't that mean this movie is an example of White Genocide and the persecution of superior white people?
    Only to you.

    MiB Again? One move was enough. The original was great. The sequel was ok, but they really didn't need to make it.

    Well, yeah, this time they are doing it without Will Smiff, so they can go for a tone other than "typical Will Smiff movie". Also, I'm with Underseer on the need more Tessa Thompson / Chris Hemsworth movies sentiment.

    I'm not the one who gets offended and triggered by every little thing. I'm just trying to be accommodating to your fragility.

    Doctor Who is sort of comic bookish...

    Olivia Colman was offered the role as the Doctor? Oh wow, that would have been so good. One of the best actors on the planet.

    Looks like there's officially no more Batfleck:

    It seems they'll be going for a younger version of the character more focused on the detective aspect than simply the "punch people in the face" aspect. That seems like a good move to me and a continuation in the direction of the DC films to each be their own thing rather than trying to copy Marvel and fit all of them into an overriding shared universe, which has been to the detriment of the individual movies.

    I am perfectly okay with that. I prefer Batman to be in the shadows, solving crimes, using his persona to strike fear in the hearts of petty criminals.

    I'm not a fan of his role as "Captain of the Galactic Invasion Defense Force." Even the Nolan Batman ("Let's hack everyone's cell phone to create worldwide echo location") seems so larger-than-life as to run the risk of farce.

    But the former role is harder to pull off as a blockbuster movie series.
