I really hope it will be an origin story (in the same way Batman Begins was an origin story) and I hope it features Doctor Proton as the main villain. Not as a stereotypical Bond-like villain, but as the transhumanist extremist we saw in TDWCM, smart and cunning, who is genuinely convinced that the world would be a better place under his rule.

I honestly don't want a Duke Nukem movie. I'd rather have him stay in the games. Just about all game-turned movie adaptions are bad.

So for you it's not enough not to watch the movie: you want everybody to be deprived of it.

If they are going to half ass it,appeal to call of duty's and Transformers audience aka retards,under-budget it,restrict creative freedom then no i dont want to see a Duke Nukem movie the same way i dont want to see the TMNT reboot currently being helmed by Platinum Dunes ,Michael Bays production company who will also be the executive producer on the film mind you.
Beyond the fact that PD hasnt produced a single good film,the latest remarks over the reboot seem to be indicating that its going to be on the same goddamn mark of quality as the ******* Chipmunks and Smurfs adaptations http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=88157
So no unless we get people who want to actually invest the time,money and creative freedom that such a difficult character to utilize deserves then **** no i dont want to see anything.

Still, just because some people like something you don't, it's not acceptable to call them retards. I don't care about Call of Duty, but I like the Transformers film series: if I had been shown that as a kid in the 1980s, that would've been my dream come true: real-life Transformers! Had I been asked back then if I preferred that or the G1 cartoon series, I would've definitely chosen the movie series. The same is true now.

Having said that, Michael Bay is a perfect choice for an eventual Duke Nukem movie. As Duke said in DNMP: "Babes, bullets, bombs... man, I love this job!" And guess what Michael Bay's movies feature prominently: babes, bullets and bombs! Lots of special effects and lots of destruction, just like what's fun to cause in a Duke game!

As you can see from the media's AND fans' reaction to DNF, the Duke needs decent writing and the right setting, mood and tone to work. And that's why Michael Bay would obviously be the wrong choice.

The reaction to DNF was due to the fact that it was hyped for 14 years, and NOTHING can live up to almost a decade and a half of hype. If 3DRealms had decided in 2002 to shut down the DNF forum, remove any reference to DNF in its site and ban whoever mentioned DNF in their forum, then the development had occurred exactly as it did in reality, the reaction would've been more honest as the so-called fans would've judged the game without comparing it with a simulacrum that only existed in their minds.
The style of Duke is grandiose and over-the-top, which matches Michael Bay's movies perfectly.

If you read the forums carefully you would have seen that a lot of the complaits are because of the immature humour and the setting and Dukes behaviour are targetted at 13 year old kids who just discovered <censored>.
If you want that for a movie then Michael Bay would be the right choice.

Michael Bay should never be allowed to make any movie. About anything. Ever.
