Er to the Iz-nie

Ok, I'm just going to start posting awesome Muppet-related clips on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. I'm even creating a new category for it. I'm so glad the guy who created this clip had nothing better to do with his life.



----------------------------------------

Recent poll results......Tom Cruise was judged to be a worse actor than Kevin Costner by a vote of 7-5. I think the results ended up being a slight 'win' in Cruise's favor on Posnanski's blog as well. So the people have spoken, Cruise is in fact a worse actor. Somewhere, Costner is toasting himself and still trying to figure out how the hell he won a directing Oscar over Martin Scorsese.

Also, Fedor won the 'who would you least like to piss off' poll by a vote of 5-4 over Batman. Anderson Silva somewhat surprisingly got zero votes, but then again, Anderson seems like a pretty laid-back guy outside of the cage. It would probably take a lot to really set him off.

This week's poll question is a doozy, so I'll leave it up for a full week. If you have any suggestions of your own, tell me about it in this post's comment section.

I voted for Bane, though training a crazed protege who evenutally turns on you might make more sense as an arc for #4--3 will no doubt focus on outlaw Batman. Love your idea of Emerson as Riddler. I mentioned it to Carrie last night after we saw TDK on an IMAX screen and her jaw just dropped (quote: "ooooh, good idea! His eyes are fucking crazy!!")

oh, and forgot to add about the IMAX business: SCORE!

You know Kyle, you had two votes (the logic being that every other movie had two villains). I'll just assume your other pick was King Tut.

Hmm, crazed protege...should I have added Azrael to the list?

The lesson, as always: I'm an idiot. I had my Knightfall history all screwed up. I think that that would make a great arc, though I'm sure the studio would be hesitant to green-light a script which has Batman on the sidelines for a good chunk of it.

I'll make my other vote Riddler (Emerson only, mind you).

I didn't vote for Mr. Freeze, but someone like Patrick Stewart should get on that before he gets too old...

I voted Riddler and Talia al Ghul as both are non-powered characters, which fits into the world created in these movies better than someone like Killer Croc or Posion Ivy. Also, using Talia ties into the first one and means they don't NEED Catwoman, who I'd rather they avoided, except for a minor reference--like beginning the film with Batman catching a female burgler dressed ala Catwoman from the Brubaker/Cooke revamp.

Clayface and the Ventriloquist. All other combinations absolutely fail. It will be like Freddy (Scarface) vs. Jason (Clayface) vs. The Goddamn Batman. FACE OFF!*

*This pun 30% worse if Two-Face is somehow able to be included as well, or, failing the retcon, Barbara Streisand from The Mirror Has Two Faces. Babs would of course be a further 30% more pants-shittingly terrifying than Harvey Dent.
