Am I the only one who thinks there won't be any sequels? It's Asuka in the first one or nothing as far as I assume.

Hell, I'm not convinced that this project will ever get the green light; I'll frankly be amazed if it ever happens.
Matt Greenfield has admited in the Anime Insider story that it "may never happen..."

It can only work right if there are sequels. Evangelion is to big to fit into one movie and still have everything it's supposed to have. Explain to me please, NakedEye666, how it could still work as only one movie.

I didn't say it could work with only one movie. But if they wanted to have something that worked, why make this movie at all, obviously it can't reach the completion that the Evangelion television series (& movies) have no matter how many movies they make.

Personally, I would preffer if there weren't many sequels, if it gets made at all. Maybe 2 movies, but I don't want this to be a big huge thing, we can already assume that they don't care about getting everything exactly right anyway. But I'd really have to know what exactly they are trying to do (story wise) before making a judgement on how the movies should be. Image

Well.......... *sigh* alright you're right, it well never be as good as the original anime, and yes I don't want a whole lot of sequels. Just somewhere around 1 or 2 sequels, if even that many. But if they wanted it to work, they can't just make one movie. Oh well, I'm an optimist sometimes, and I'm hoping for the best.

Wait a sec...

Am I hearing you people right?

First, you guys say a LA movie could never carry the depth and scope of the animation (which is understantable and quite true), then you say you don't want many sequels to be made (which would give the LA version as much story depth as possible).

I personally feel they should make at least three movies. if not five or six. The only reason the Matrix sequels sucked was because there wasn't very much to go on in the first place and the first one was just a laser-light show. There is just too much stuff going on in Evangelion for this to happen.

And really, I hope they can find someone who will treat it as a saga with a beginning and an end (like Star Wars) rather than just just fodder for neverending sequels (like Star Trek).

Is bringing up Star Wars a good idea?

I agree with something that somwbody said earlier. Make the first movie, make it seem complete enough to those who don't know about EVA, and if it makes money, make sequels. It would need sequels to work out right. Or it can work out wrong, in which case it's nothing like the anime, but it's a good movie.

thx, the original Matriz was sweet, the next 2 weren't. The reasons for that are whatever they are, but the original was a really good movie.

Really? I thought the first Matrix was little more than a special-effects experiment with a bunch of quasi-philosophical stuff thrown in to make it look deep, while the sequels had real emotion and real plot. But what do I know, I thought Titan AE was better than Titanic Image

While I haven't seen Titan A.E, it probably was better than Titanic.

don't take notice of speculation like that. thy won't even think of casting until a good solid script is written and the project is nice and secure. not even newline cinema would waste that much money on a cast like that when the movie isn't even a definate yet. Besides, I remember seeing a cast that was probably dreamt up by some kid about the resident evil movie.

Barry - Bruce Willis
Wesker - Sylvester Stallone
Jill - Drew Barrymoore

and so on so forth. It's just Message Board propaganda. nothing more

seeing as how i loved the entire matrix trilogy, i would like eva to turn out like that; action in the first movie, but deeper philosophy and history in the next two. i thought the matrix was brilliant in what it did with itself and im one of the few who think so. that's actuslly how the eva series turnes out so making movies like that would work best.

That cast list is from a recent article in Anime Insider and I believe was meant to be some kind of lame joke. Pay it no mind. Whoever posted that was misinformed or just outright lying.

As much as I dislike Star Trek, it might actualy be cool to cast him as Fuyutski or maybe a cameo as a Japanese politician.

Plus, it would reel in the Trekkies & Trekkers and show them what real science fiction is all about. 8)

I think he should be the Guy on the Plane in Episode 7. Or one of those other corporate puppets from that episode. His hair isn't gray enough to be Fuyutsuki. Hell, Fuyutsuki doesn't even look Asian.

And don't bash Star Trek. Although the original series is laughable, you can't watch something like First Contact without saying "Damn, that's cool..."

i say they need to stay true to the original... >> dont westernize it, or to say more properly, dont fix what isnt broken!

George Takei would make a great addition to the cast! Image


hey! theres nothing wrong with the classic star trek! at least the first series movies were good!


"KHAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!!" xP

Ah yes, I remember how all the fans thought that Sybok's search for God in the fifth movie was such a cool idea...

It would also be cool if the Governator was cast as a member of the Committee. He's a businessman and a politician now, and Austro-German to boot, so it would fit REALLY well. I can just imagine him sitting there bitching about the cost of the Evas...
