It's official: Idris Elba is the most kick-ass man on the planet. Guillermo Del Toro confirmed as much by making him the captain on a mission that sends giant robots to fight monsters of Godzilla-like proportions. This I will gladly plant down extra money to see in 3D.
It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
