Taylor Kitsch has revealed in an interview with Variety that the sequel to John Carter would have been "f***ing awesome", something that will come as no surprise to the large minority of people - this writer included - who loved the original.
Sadly, the chances of ever seeing a sequel, or even a reboot, are about as big as a shrunk-down Ant-Man - but from what Kitsch has to say, it sounds like we're missing out:
"I mean, look man, it wasn’t an uplifting experience. My biggest regret would have been if I didn’t do enough personally. If I didn’t give it everything I had. If I hadn’t prepped enough. I don’t have that regret, so that allows me to let go. I still talk to Lynn Collins almost daily. Those relationships that were born won’t be broken by people we never met...I miss the family. I miss Andrew Stanton. I know the second script was fucking awesome. We had to plant a grounding, so we could really take off in the second one. The second one was even more emotionally taxing, which was awesome.
If you can't trust Tim Riggins, then who can you trust? No-one, that's who. So when Kitsch (Friday Night Lights' Riggins himself) says that John Carter 2 would have been awesome, I for one am inclined to believe him.
What do you guys think? Would John Carter 2 have been awesome?
