Actually' date=' looking at the pic, I'm thinking Talisman more than Mind Slayer...[/quote']

 

That does seem a better fit to me too.

 

I'm surprised no one's mentioned James Earl Jones for any voice-acting. Although having him do Mechanon or Dr. Destroyer might be a little... odd.

Well, he voiced Darth Vader in the first trilogy. I'd say he could do a great job voicing either Mechanon or Doctor D.

That would be perfect, just put it in the backstory of creating Mechanon.

 

(Marksman is running his final diagnositics.)

Mechanon: "Good evening, sir. If you are finished, I would like to start preparing dinner. Plus, the other hereoes will be returning from their shift soon and some of them are wounded."

Rose: "He sounds like James Earl Jones."

Marksman: "The fact that he used the same software as Steven Hawkings bothered me, so I changed his voice."

Rose: (sarcastically) "Darth Vader is so much better."

Marksman: "No, no, it's perfect, Mechanon say, 'Welcome to Homestead'"

Mechanon: "Welcome to Homestead"

Rose: "'You underestimate the power of the Darkside.'"

Mechanon: "I do not understand, what is Darkside?"

Marksman: "Nevermind, state your prime directives."

Mechanon: "I am the Mechanon-series Robot. Directive One: I am to follow the orders of any Champion. Directive Two: Help humanity as long as it does not disobey Directive One. Directive Three: "

Rose: (sarcastically with a deep voice) "Destroy the Organics."

Marksman: "Rose!" (pause) "Ok, tomorrow I'll change it. Mechanon, execute orders."

 

View from Mechanon shows "Priority One Order: Destroy the Organics" on his head-up display.

 

Mechanon: "Very well. I shall make the preperations."

This might be very interesting if this was still the origin story for Mechanon. As it is, Marksman and Rose never existed in the CU.

Re: Casting "Champions Universe: The Motion Picture"

 

Well, the last time we discussed this topic--

 

http://www.herogames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42596&highlight=Champions+Movie

 

I posted these suggestions--

 

I'd rather have Michael Clark Duncan as Dark Seraph.

 

Sir Ian McKellen could be Doctor Destroyer--he's one of the few I can think of who looks as old as Destroyer is supposed to be. (No offense to Sir Ian.)

 

Mechanon is depcited by a cross of CGI and animatronics courtesy of Stan Winston Studios. Its voice is the Cylon Centurion voice from the original Battlestar Galactica.

 

Mark Hamill is a good choice for Foxbat, as is Paul Reubens. But someone else on a thread long ago suggested Johnny Depp, and that's who I'm going with.

 

Bruce Campbell should be the Champions version of Silver Age Superman, Vanguard. I think he'd be great as the ultimate hero who makes the ultimate sacrifice.

 

As For the Champions--

 

Defender------Matthew McConaghey

Nighthawk----Vin Diesel

Sapphire------Christina Aguilera

Witchcraft-----Sorry, I got nothin'

Ironclad-------Christopher Judge

Kinetik---------Tyrese

 

I've said before that Robert Picardo would be perfect for Beamline, and I have great confidence that he will eventually escape into the 5th Edition Universe.

 

Since then, I've decided that Jennifer Love Hewitt would be great as Witchcraft.

 

Also--

 

While others have suggested Mark Hamill as Foxbat, I'd like to see him go all dark and twisted--as Blowtorch.

 

And I'd like to see James Callis (Baltar on the new Battlestar Galactica) go all sinister as Giles de Morphant--the Black Paladin.

 

And while I thought Billy Zane made a great hero as The Phantom, I think he'd be great as Holocaust, or perhaps VIPER's Supreme Serpent.

 

I also think Zane would work well as Menton. He's handsome enough and could do understated evil quite easily.

 

As for directors--I'm thinking either Robert Rodriguez or Bryan Singer. Perhaps both.

 

Should we get Kurt Busiek to write the screenplay, or does someone on these boards want to take a crack at it?

 

And I want Alex Ross to do the movie posters. I think we can all agree on that--:thumbup:

Never saw it. Just what was the film about' date=' and no offense, but what did a black guy have to do with the Kings of Scotland?[/quote']

 

The flick was about Idi Amin (dictator of Uganda) and the title was in reference to MacBeth (I believe).

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0455590/

 

(Actaully, the title is NOT a MacBeth reference)
