i will eat brett ratner’s liver

Tue Jul-5th-2005 // Filed under: Celluloid

According to IMDB’s news, Brett Ratner — the director of the upcoming third X-Men movie after Bryan Singer abandoned it so he could play with Superman — is busy at work, trying to his damnedest to make sure he fucks everything up after Singer gave us two excellent X-Men movies. Or as IMDB puts it: “Ratner is spicing up the new X-Men 3 movie with the addition of his very own fantasy — a sex siren mutant who seduces her opponents rather than battles them. “ You’ll excuse me for getting a sinking feeling of certainity that of all the excellent, interesting and downright good ways to realize that concept, Ratner will choose not a single one. Sure, maybe my glass is half empty, once again, but as the new character is described as an “unbelievably hot and sexy hooker,” I’m running kinda low on optimism here.

Buckle up, boys and girls, we’re heading deep into Daredevil country. Yeehaw!


  1. When it comes to superhero films the rule is “crap until proven not crap”.

    Still, why create a new character? It’s not like the Marvel universe is not full of vamps and other sorts of bad girls. Selene? The Hellfire club? The bitch in baddie group in The New Warriors? Isn’t there even one new “edgy” new mutant who does this as well? Juhana, help me here!

    At least Singer would have made the much more original and interesting choice of making the “unbelievably hot and sexy hooker” a male. :)

  2. There’s this broad who was hanging with (some combination of) X-Men some time back who had some pheromone seduction thing going on. But I think her skin was funny somehow, scaly or something (how come I don’t have my collection at work so that I could check?! – sorry about the vagueness) so perhaps they didn’t want someone else like their Mystique.

    Or, more likely, Ratner the supposed X-Men fan hasn’t read these issues either.

    I really think that the decent X-Men movies would’ve deserved a bearable part three. *sigh*

  3. Well, what do you know. It appears that it’s the character I was talking about, Stacy X, that Ratner wants in the film.

    Not that this is making me any happier. So, some X-Men writer created her, it doesn’t make it any less a mistake.

  4. Oh, right, Stacy X — that awful bitch… Well, doesn’t make much difference whether Ratner gets a bright idea on his own or if he just further butchers a ridiculous minor character.

    Of course, it’s also possible that he actually knows what he’s doing and this is just the result of some unrelated dork somewhere coming up with the “unbeliavably hot and sexy hooker” crap on his own.

    Think about it, instead of sweat, he can secrete grease from his pours that will make people slip. Than he can eat them.”

  6. Oh, ihaninta toki on, että uskomattoman kuumaa ja seksikästä huoraa esittää näillä näkymin _tennistähti_ Williams, en nyt muista oliko Serena vai Venus. Taattua laatua varmasti siis.
