today I woke up on a "sad" rumor for me.
The Hollywood Reporter reports Ryan is in talk to be a Superhero in some WB production... Here below some extracts from the article you can read entirely on the site
Many names have been attached to Doctor Strange after Joaquin Phoenix left the project: Ethan Hawke, Keanu Reeves and also Ewan McGregor. Personally I hate Superheroes movies, I'm not at all into comics so I have no idea of who Doctor Strange is but Wikipedia helps a lot.
As for Suicide Squad... Oh My Gos!! The name says it all!!!! With Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy.. I know Hardy is having a lot of success recently (I know him only for being in the beautiful Bronson, he is not one my fave actors) and also Robbie has turned famous after playing with DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street (and we will see her again in many other big productions such as Untamed with Alexander Skarsgard next year and I can tell you I will watch the movie just because the Tall One is in! He is a great actor). And when I think about Will Smith I think about a beautiful movie that is The Pursuit of Happyness but also about I am legend and The Fresh Prince!!
So another project I'm not happy about!
The 3rd.... The life of Houdini.. Oh my my!!! Another movie about the Famous Magician.. How many movies there are about his life???? Surely too much. But this one should not have a sequel, hopefully!
So in my simple mind.... I know Ryan - sooner or later - must give his face (let's say the face) for a big movie (really big this time, not like that pearl that was Crazy Stupid Love or the flop that was Gangster Squad) but at least I hope it would be not for a Superhero.
Ryan doens't deserve those shi**y movies.
Excuse me for the word but I hate those big productions, I'm one of the few fans who didn't appreciate that much The Notebook and I didn't like at all Gangster Squad. Ryan is perfect for playing in movies like Blue Valentine or Drive.
He is too talented for playing Dr Strange!!!!! He is the most talented actor out there actually.
I've never been interested in movies or actors before him. But now I am but I also know Hollywood rules and I hate them all!
So, I trust totally Ryan and I'm sure he will decide for the best (that is the lesser evil).
And don't forget that at the moment is just RUMORS. And I hope it will remain this way.
He refused to play Batman in Batman vs Superman because of the sequels (and surely it's not the only reason)
So, Ryan, please don't change your mind now.
