I'm not really one to focus on actors myself, for the most part. This trailer, though, was trite.

I just can't help but wonder if Edgar Wright had written something that was actually original for these movies and they felt the need to water it down to be another one of their Marvel Assembly Line movies.

As long as the movie is fun I'm good. Party poopers be damned.

I'm always up for watching a good movie, but it's going to take some convincing for me to think a movie directed by the guy who directed Yes Man and written by the guy who writes those crappy Will Ferrell comedies will be any good.

The fact that these are the people they chose to replace Edgar Wright, regardless of what I think of him, is what bothers me.

The fact a director was able to adapt Scott Pilgrim at all is an amazing feat.  But then Edgar Wright not only adapted it, but fitted it with the quick humour and comic-like visuals from the source material and do so successfully is unreal.  I definitely think Wright was a huge loss for the project.  Still, I think the movie can be fun without him.

*( on that note, I always liked how Marvel movies kinda 'poke fun' of comic book oddities; Scott disliking the "Ant Man" name, Wolverine worried about wearing yellow spandex, etc.).
