Zack Snyder is one of the most infuriating directors working in Hollywood today. His visual style is lavish and dynamic; every frame is meticulously crafted with style and panache. But, beneath the hoods of his glimmering hot rods, sit rusty, sputtering engines that fail to propel the vehicle past the finish line. Such is the case with his latest misstep, Sucker Punch – a movie so colossally inept at basic storytelling, it makes Clash of the Titans look like The King’s Speech.
The Captain America : The First Avenger cast and crew are headed back to London for two weeks of re-shoots, despite the fact that the film is due for a wide theatrical release in about four months. Re-shoots on a Blockbuster Summer tentpole film aren’t uncommon, but when you factor in this disconcerting news with the fact that the studio still has not released full two-minute trailer for the film this late in the game, the outlook isn’t good. This marketing campaign for poor Cap is so inept, it makes the exposure Mars Needs Moms got look like a damned full-on Star Wars media blitz.

This blurb is also fueling further speculation that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to appear in the film as the Joker, replacing his deceased friend Heath Ledger. Rumor has it both villains will be appearing in brief Arkham Asylum sequences. I also heard a rumor that Charlie Sheen is going to appear in the film as a new villain called “Vatican Assassin Warlock Tigerblood Man”, but as it turns out, he was just spotted breaking into Christopher Nolan’s office to steal a Batman cowl and a box of Sharpies.
