What I'm Thinking Thursday Returns!
What I'm Thinking Thursday returns with a vengeance!!!
1. Hollywood will be remaking the classic movie Highlander with Ryan Reynolds (who was in Green Lantern and awesome in Blade Trinity) as the immortal Connor Macleod. In thinking about it, somebody online mentioned they wouldn't mind seeing The Punisher's Thomas Jane or 300's Gerard Butler as MacLeod. Interesting. By weird coincidence, I picked up the original Highlander DVD the other night for a few bucks at Newbury Comics! Before I knew about all this hubbaloo! Not sure how I feel, this flick doesn't need a reboot! On another side note, I bought a keychain years ago from the Highlander company, and then they kept calling me to buy one of their hundreds-of-dollars-replica-swords all the time! Even when I moved! Twice! And did I mention that Highlander 2 and the last two seasons of the TV show sucked?
2. So I found this image a few weeks ago. It's Indiana Jones with Captain America's shield. Very plausible. Why? I'll tell you why non-believer-of-me!! The beginning of Captain America, when the Red Skull gets the Cosmic Cube, he says something like "And the Fueher digs for trinkets in the desert." Raiders of the Lost Ark, searching for the Well of Souls, perhaps. Also, Indy was a member of the OSS, the precursor of the CIA during WWII, and has won a lot of medals because of this (thanks, vastly inferior Crystal Skull movie). Who's to say Indy didn't help out Cap and the ol' Howling Commandoes during their fight against Hydra?
