    The plot to Ciudad sounds strangely familiar to that of Max Payne 3…

    @ sean i even heard of kevin nash to play thor thank god he didnt same goes for hunter liam was brilliant as thor.

    @ sean my main experience with the x men world is through the cartoons from the mid 1990′s & i’ve always thought that there is something about the rock that leads to the sinister charecter i don’t know why plus i think the rock would play an awesome comic book villain in a movie

  • Sean Mooney

    @ voice of reason I always wanted to see Mr. Sinister in a movie, but why the Rock? I remember a rumor years ago that Rock was going to play Silver Surfer (and of course there was talks of Triple H playing Thor), glad neither of those didn’t happen.

    i always thought that if they made an x men 4 the rock would play an awesome mr sinister.
