It's never a surprise when incredibly talented directors attract A-list talent to their projects. With the case of acclaimed director Ridley Scott, that truth has been realized, and then some, for the insane ensemble he is locking in for his upcoming biblical epic "Exodus".

The film already has Christian Bale set to play Moses and Joel Edgerton locked into play the evil Egyptian pharaoh Ramses. Now it's been reported that Aaron Paul, Sir Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro, are either in final negotiations or are already set, to round out the already amazing cast.

Kingsley is as good as it gets, and Weaver and Turturro are very talented actors as well, but I am personally the most excited to see Paul join the cast. He has spent the last five years on the cult-classic TV show "Breaking Bad", opposite Bryan Cranston. Quite arguably one of the best shows to ever grace our televisions, Paul has made the character of Jesse Pinkman come alive in all his tragic beauty. A beyond layered and complex character, the passion and commitment he brought to that role was incredibly inspired. Paul will be expanding his range and will be taking the big-screen by storm,  to be seen next in Disney's "Need for Speed", directed by Scott Waugh ("Act of Valor" ).

Weaver is a familiar face for Scott, having previously worked together on "Alien" and "1492: Conquest of Paradise".

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
