Comics tweeters on the east side of the Atlantic Ocean had some fun things to say about Jennifer Garner nabbing the part of Miss Marple for Disney today. The critiques haven't been nearly as harsh as the "Sucker Punch" reviews showing up, but Chris Weston thinks he might know of an appropriate candidate to play Hercule Poirot if someone gives him the reboot treatment as well.
Thoughts on Garner, Natalie Portman's stunt double in "Black Swan" and a confession from a writer who impulse bought a Nintendo 3DS await you after the jump. Click on down to find out whose side you're on and what Ben Templesmith thinks of Seattle.

@pauljholden Did I hallucinate? Jennifer garner as miss marple? Presumably she does parkour while kicking ass in tweed #wouldshakeheadbutamill

-Chris Weston, Artist ("The Authority," "The Filth")

-Gail Simone, Writer ("Birds of Prey," "Wonder Woman")
@marcbernardin Who gives a shit if Natalie Portman did her own dancing? The Death Star didn't actually blow up Alderaan, ya know. The planet's fine. #magic

"Sucker Punch" pt. 1:@BillWillingham However, was dragged to see Sucker Punch on Friday. Yikes. Most honest and accurate movie title ever.
-Bill Willingham, Writer ("Fables," "Shadowpact")
"Sucker Punch" pt. 2:@BrianDenham The end credits to SuckerPunch should have been the Mortal Kombat theme from the 1990's movie.
-Brian Denham, Artist ("Iron Man: Hypervelocity," "Man-Thing")
"Sucker Punch" pt. 3:@DennisCalero My Asst really liked sucker punch. Maybe it's a feminist power fantasy? Girl fight club? Maybe men just don't get it
-Dennis Calero, Artist ("X-Factor," "Legion of Super-Heroes")
@RagsMorales F---ing NBA officials strike again. Face it folks, they're the WORST officials in all of sports.
-Rags Morales, Artist ("Identity Crisis," "Wonder Woman")
@Templesmith The big thing I forgot about downtown Seattle is that it's filled with people who have no idea how to wear pants & take pride in loitering.
-Ben Templesmith, Writer/Artist ("30 Days of Night," "Welcome to Hoxford")
