    Meh, not THAT funny. The Onion hasn't really been that funny to me, lately.

    Meh. I never really liked Thundercats before, certainly not wasting the money to see it again only with live action. All the 80's Icons I love have already been brought back good enough (TF's and Knight Rider).

    *reads thread title* "Wtf?"

    *realizes it's from The Onion* Ah. Yeah, that's about their usual level of shit.

    The Onion has never been funny to me. I just never cared for it.

    True, but considering how Hollywood keeps resurecting every 80's cartoon that had a bit of popularity, a Thundercats movie might just be around the corner...

    Well if Sony is dumb enough to green light "The Smurfs" then anything is possible. Poor John Lithgow.

    Pretty much the only funny thing I have watched from The Onion was the "Sony's Latest Goddamn Fucking Piece of Shit".

    Dammit. I actually would have liked to seen what Bay would do with Thundercats, it might have been fun.

    I see the story is fake. But when I first heard about this, I thought Bay is going to take some time off.

    I added the source to the title to avoid confusion that this might actually be a true story.
