Some upcoming movies I'm interested in

Like I said...I'm interested, not necessarily excited (although some I'm giddy about). First off, Tron: Legacy...this one I'm excited about. Who wouldn't be ? If you grew up in the 70's this movie would have had an impact like Star Wars. Let's just hope to god that Disney does this one up right. And honestly, why wouldn't they ? They spent the time crafting a good story. Whereas LUcas, just pumped out a bunch of crap to make $$$.

Other flicks of interest: Green Lanturn, Thor, Ironman 2, Wolverine 2, Ant Man, Avengers, Batman 3, Spiderman 4, Kick Ass. There are a bunch of other Super Hero movies on the go, but I'm worried they're just churning these things out to capitalize on the hot market. Case in point, X3 was utter crap, and Wolverine was a let down. They took one of the most popular characters with a mixed up past and made a run of the mill made for TV flick. They messed up his origin, added characters for the sake of spin offs, had lousy character development and glossed over soooo much of his history and why he is like he is (Wolverine makes a comment "I'm the best at what I do and what I do ain't nice....well, what did he do ? Cause it couldn't have been fighting since he got his ass kicked all over the screen...also, they don't explain his name, and the admantium bullet was the worst idea ever). Let's hope they look at the comments seriously and make a change for #2.

A couple others such as Guy Ricthies Sherlock Holmes, and Del Toro's The Hobit (if it ever gets out of the courts ) could be worth the wait. Also, the new Alien Prequel from Ridley Scott and James Cameron's Avatar should both create buzz.

Not sure about the A-Team, T.J. Hooker, and Battlestar Galactica reboot...we'll see what happens.
