Should Melissa Benoist be in TMNT 3?
 


YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSS.

She'd make a much better April than Megan Fox. I wuv her.

BIG PICS BIG PICS

CylonsKlingonsDaleksOhMy 07-11-2016 11:54 AM

Is that why you like her? For her big pics? :tlol:

And dude, there's not even a poll.

YOU HAVE FAILED THIS FORUM.

CyberCubed 07-11-2016 11:55 AM

There is no need for a poll. For I know everyone will choose yes.

I don't even know the name but then I saw the Supergirl pic.

I swear, if I see another "Should _________ be in TMNT 3?" thread one more time, I'm gonna lose it.

She is now the canon version of Supergirl in all media. Accept no substitutes.

Candy Kappa 07-11-2016 12:21 PM

This how it ends, guys. All these threads are the symptoms of a bigger issue.

The end times are nigh, PD TMNT was the warning.

I felt that way until Cubed made this thread.

Best damn thread all day.

Etsyturtle2 07-11-2016 01:04 PM

Absolutely yes and she should play fox's girlfriend.

snake 07-11-2016 01:10 PM

Yes. Anything for you Cubed!

IndigoErth 07-11-2016 01:37 PM

Is that who that is, the Supergirl actress.

Sure, why not, as long as they add some red to the hair like that gif she can be April. Far more expressive in a few photos than Fox prob has in most of her movies combined.

But Cubed, out of loyalty this means you will now have to support the concept of a 3rd film... You've painted yourself into a corner.

CylonsKlingonsDaleksOhMy 07-11-2016 01:50 PM

Actually looking at her (usually ignore the pictures and just make fun of CC), I gotta admit: red hair dye and she's good to go. I think she's a good actress, having watched some clips of the Flash crossover...

You've been trolling the Internet for over a decade and you still don't know what "canon" means.

Candy Kappa 07-11-2016 02:00 PM

He's too moist for Benoist to care

CyberCubed 07-11-2016 02:01 PM

I've been on internet forums since like 1999...starting off on IGN boards and spreading throughout the internet like wildfire. I've probably been on forums you didn't even realize.

Bry 07-11-2016 02:13 PM

Melissa Benoist as everyone. Literally the whole cast.

Andrew NDB 12-12-2019 02:11 PM

Considering that even the raging CW warriors are leaving the Arrowverse shows in droves, she could be looking for her next gig soon. At the very least she could available for some incarnation of April.

Sure.

Leo656 12-12-2019 09:49 PM

She'd most likely have the nicest beaver out of anyone to ever play the role, that's for sure, dawg.

Prowler 12-14-2019 11:28 AM

I haven't seen any stuff she was in ever, but I doubt she'd do a worse job as April than Megan Fox. So I don't see why I wouldn't give her a chance.

I personally would like to see Scarlett Johansson play April one day, but I don't think it will ever happen.

TommyT 12-14-2019 12:01 PM

Instead, how about she plays Jennika.

She’d make a great female Turtle...

With nostrils.

IMJ 12-14-2019 09:02 PM

It's not like she's a legit good actress. She's just girl next door perfect pretty.
I was at the LCS for a bit today and heard some people standing around chatting going on about how bad the Crisis crossover is - how awful the acting was. Seems universal consensus on that everywhere I turn.

Fan's are willfully blind of the gong show. It's like a suburban painting party; paint is technically going on a canvas, but art, it is not.

I've never seen Melissa Benoist in anything but I'd prefer if they went for someone who has a background in comedy too.

Megan Fox's April was just really boring and was only there to be perved on by the male characters, which feels really dated and unpleasant to watch. I don't even think Megan Fox is a bad actress, she's very good in Friends With Kids and This Is 40, she was just saddled with a bad script and looks bored throughout- especially in Out Of The Shadows.

I don't really know who to suggest as an alternative but given all the positive responses to the Benoist suggestion, I'm guessing she would be a good fit!:tgrin:

I don't think anyone came out of the PD films looking good. Even actors I typically like (Fichtner, Laura Linney, etc.) were mediocre because the material they had to work with was genuinely awful.

Luckily, I don't think there will be a third PD film. Hopefully whenever we get another live action film, better decisions will be made.

As for Benoist, I haven't seen her in much. I stopped watching those Arrowverse shows YEARS ago but I did drop in for Crisis On Infinite Earths. It was all very cringeworthy but I did like her as Supergirl. She wouldn't be my first choice for April, but I wouldn't mind her in the part.

I don't always pay super-close attention, but have any of them done anything of significance since then? I never hear their names mentioned anymore. Like yeah Amell still did a few seasons of "Arrow", but has he had another shot at being a "movie star"?

Kinda feels like those movies killed the careers of everyone who was in them. But again, I admit I don't spend a lot of time thinking or reading about those people. I just used to see their names in the headlines a lot more often than I have ever since the second movie came out.

Not that I know of. I do knows he’s currently working on a Wrestling TV show for Starz called Heels. He also did some straight to Netflix movie with his cousin but yeah, no big time movies.

Amell's career is not one I really follow but the other actors I mentioned were never really mega-stars, but consistent "hey it's that guy/gal" types who often dip into supporting roles. Using IMDb to jog memory, it looks like Fichtner followed TMNT with the second Independence Day, which believe it or not I thought was WORSE than the PD films, as well as several films I haven't heard of and 12 Strong, which I haven't seen so I can't comment on. Linney followed it with Sully and Nocturnal Animals.

I haven't watched it, but Stephen Amell apparently produced a movie none of us have heard of, along with his brother Robbie (another CW alum):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_8_(2019_film)

Laura Linney has been in Ozark, which is a damn good Netflix show. Like Breaking Bad, but with money laundering and more marital problems. :tlol:

According to Wikipedia, Tyler Perry has released THREE(!) more Madea movies since playing Baxter Stockman, plus a buncha other $hit.

Will Arnett has voiced a ton of dumb $hit, William Fichtner has appeared in a bunch of stuff, and Megan Fox has been in a lot of stuff (the only thing I've seen is the Machine Gun Kelly video).

So nobody's hurting for roles or money that wasn't already hurting for roles or money.

Kind of seems like, Arrow aside, Amell's brother is actually doing a lot better than him in film and such abroad.

Went and looked up his filmography... you're not wrong! Surprising!

Very weird. Never saw enough of Robbie to form an opinion on him one way or another, except that it was weird how he died off-screen between Flash's first and second seasons. Seems like he made a good choice leaving the show when he did, given his body of work since...

Slade 02-25-2021 02:27 AM

They're cousins.

I know they have that Code 8 movie that came on Netflix. It seemed like it might be good, but I never finished it. Other than that, I've only seen Robbie in that Scooby Doo movie.

frank_one 02-25-2021 07:16 AM

The real question is: "Should CyberCubed be in Melissa Benoist?"
