Beak?! Really?

Some comic book movie news today...

Looks like they are shoe horning in even more characters into the Wolverine movie. We now have Wolverine, Sabertooth, Silver Fox, Deadpool, Wraith, William Stryker, Gambit, and now Beak and Agent 0 - aka Maverick - have been added and cast. Now, up until the last two days, all the additional cast made sense for a Wolverine Origins movie. But Gambit and Beak?! Really? How are they going to explain these guys in the Weapon X storyline? The only thing I can think of is if they are doing a present day story with flashbacks to the Weapon X story. This way they can makes this a pseudo X-Men 4 movie under a Wolverine title. Either way, with all these characters being pushed into it, I'm starting to worry it might be going X3 territory. Guess time will tell.

Elsewhere, we get the great news that Garth Ennis' comic The Boys has been picked up by Columbia to turn it into a movie. This will be wild if it gets made right. It'll have to be a hard R as it is one violent and over the top superhero satire. I'm a big fan of Ennis' books, but I don't know if Hollywood has the guts to put out something of his without doing the usual "censored for your protection" routine. This'll be one of the 'wait for the unrated DVD version' movies, I'm afraid.
