LIKE my comic and I’ll make you my trusted ward!

The trailer for “The Lone Ranger” just came out, and unsurprisingly they’ve chosen to focus on the more bankable Johnny Depp, playing Tonto. His face is also splashed across the poster, with no sign of the titular Ranger as played by Armie Hammer. It makes sense to hitch your wagon to the recognizable star (even if his schtick is being unrecognizable), but focusing on the sidekick seems a bit odd.

Also, I seem to recall that the original treatment for “The Lone Ranger” involved werewolves, thus making the hero’s use of silver bullets particularly effective. I’m not sure if that’s been written out of the movie. The trailer makes it look like the Masked Man will be squaring off against railroad barons. Werewolf railroad barons, perhaps? We shall see.

Google Led You Here: “Marisa Tomei Bum” Sigh, Internet Searcher. Just sigh.
