Opening on Friday in AMC Theatres everywhere is "The Lego Movie". The film has been receiving rave reviews and is still holding strong at a rare 100% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Wasting no time, it's being reported that Warner Bros. has decided to move ahead and develop a sequel.

WB has hired "The Internship" and "The Watch" writer Jared Stern to pen the script. The first film was written by Dan and Kevin Hageman ("Hotel Transylvania") and the directors of the film, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. There is no word yet on whether the dynamic duo of Lord and Miller will return to helm the sequel, but I would imagine it's a great possibility given the early success of the film.

Lord and Miller are best known for directing "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and "21 Jump Street". The comedic gem starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill took audiences by storm and the duo is now in post-production after helming the sequel. They are certainly in their artistic stride, I can't wait to see why the pair does next.

    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.
