Ed's Notes: What I am about to say in meant in the most sincere sincerity: I am surprised that the Jonah Hex movie was so awful.  It's a cool character played by Josh Brolin (who NAILED both Cable and Thanos, IMHO.)  I guess it's pretty indicative of how shitty certain DC properties were being treated at that time. Think: Green Lantern and Hellblazer as other examples of just... WTF were the thinking?!  And while there are valid criticism, I submit that Watchmen and V for Vendetta, not to mention the Nolan Batman Trilogy, show that DC properties CAN be made into decent movies.  (I'm withholding judgement on the current DC Cinematic Universe.  I know it has a lot of hater,s and no, it is NOT as well done as Marvel's. But I've enjoyed it so far, and honestly I haven't HATED any of it. Nope, not even Suicide Squad. Lol)  We'll see what Aquaman and Shazam do. I love both of the charecters, but... Well, I was optimistic for Aquaman, but the trailer has quashed some of that for me. We'll see. Shazam looks downright GOOFY, but I'm going to give it a chance, as DC's Captain Marvel is one of my all time fav's. Anyway, off track rant over. Lol.

This guy could make for a very interesting scenario, especially when mixed with less gritty characters - maybe Dimension Travelling after a bounty, Dark Tower-style or something. (That's it! They just needed Idris Elba to play him instead of Josh Brolin!)
