The Hot Dudes of the Comic Book Movies


The comic book movies are making a big splash these days and what I'm excited about are all the hot dudes that are being cast in them:

Heath Ledger as The Joker in Batman 2: The Dark Knight (2008). Note: Katie Holmes is also in this movie, they are about to begin filming. Will we all see her as the sweet girl she was in the first Batman movie, or is she now tainted by Tom Cruise's baby?

Also Tobey Maguire as Spiderman (left) and Topher Grace as his nemesis Venom (opposite) in Spiderman 3 (May 4, 2007). I don't care what you people think, Tobey Maguire is hot. And so is Topher Grace (from That '70s Show).

And last, but definitely the best, Hugh Jackman is set to star in his own movie (yes he is THAT HOT), Wolverine (out sometime in 2007), where he will flex his muscles and look irresistably troubled as much as can be squeezed into one feature-length film.Descriptions of all these movies and a few more can be found here. Also, for those of you who might care, there's going to be a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (all CG) and also a new Transformers movie! Bringing back the greats every couple of decades is sure to crop up a winner sometime.

Hugh Jackman is a bit DEE-lish.

I thought you'd like this link. I'd have e-mailed you privately, but you don't work at the U of M anymore.

This gal lives in Mpls. Though her blog is mostly about birds, there's a bunch about the Fringe Festival in there and the Arts Festival which I know you and D would be missing if you weren't so busy unpacking.
