It sounds like they've avoided the camp factor that plagued the last two dreary movies. And no more Arnold, Alicia, or Chris O' Donald. Thank god. Chris was just annoying and whiny. Alicia couldn't act at all, and Arnold, well I'm just sick of him being cast as doctor types. Casting him as the intelligent guy has always been a HUGE mistake.
But this has a score of actors I like. And The Scarecrow is played by the guy from 28 Days Later. If the story is good, and gives the hero and villain equal screen time, I think it'll be great.
