Metal Gear Solid Poster… With Christian Bale & Daniel Craig?

Published 5 years ago by

Take this one with a huge grain of salt.

There’s been virtually no movement that I know of on the Metal Gear Solid movie of late – but today someone sent me a picture they say they took at Sony Pictures in Culver City, CA this weekend of what looks like a movie poster for Metal Gear Solid.

And that’s not the craziest part…

The pic below shows a July 2011 opening date… and it features Christian Bale & Daniel Craig. I’ve included the original pic and a “tweaked” version to make things more clear.

Here’s the original:

And here’s the cleaned up version:

Christian Bale & Daniel Craig in Metal Gear Solid?

What looks like metal sparks from a welding torch are actually reflections from surrounding lights and are not part of the poster.

I guess we’ll know soon enough if this is real if I get an email asking me to pull it.

What do you think… Craig and Bale in Metal Gear Solid? Have we gotten owned or could this be the real thing?

  1. Ugh. Please keep Bale out of MGS, thank you very much. What about Hugh Jackman? He’s one of the few I can think of that could pull it off.

  2. sorry not Josh Brolin i mean HUGH JACKMAN :)

  3. Called SPE in Culver City, asked if they had a Metal Gear Solid movie poster hanging up anywhere in the studio, they said no.
    case closed?

  4. @anon
    shut up you didnt call, lair, yeah they are going to tell you what they got hanging from there wall.

  5. OWNED!

  6. I dont think they can mess this movie up the games story was great…My all time favorite non sports video game!!!

  7. Talk about Bale overload, he’s an amazing action start but holy cow. July 2011, wouldn’t that conflict with the Batman 3 filming? Cause if they are both coming out at the same time, wouldn’t they be filming at the same time?

  8. Bale is a mediocre actor at best!…. i pray he isnt going to be playing snake

    David hayter is the ONLY snake

    Craig could be good as liquid, i could see him playing a bad guy part really well

    but i think MGS should use relatively unknown actors for all roles

  9. Shamose mediocre at best? That’s suggesting that he could be a bad actor. That’s just idiotic. Whatever if someone thinks he is just average, but suggesting that he is bellow mediocre is just dumb.

    2011 doesn’t conflict with the next Batman. The next film is delayed because Nolan is working on something else that he wanted to do. Also they don’t even really have a director for the third film since Nolan hasn’t decided yet.

  10. so having an opinion on a persons acting ability is dumb? hmm and i suppose all of your opinions are the height of intelligence yes??

    haha
    in fact i do think Bale is a bad actor(excluding his role as patrick bateman) and I can assure you I am not alone

  11. To answer your question.. Yes. Come on I had to you put it right out there for me.

    Bateman wasn’t anywhere near his best performance and before his rant you would of been alone now people love to hate Bale.

  12. How can anyone say that isn’t fake?

  13. to be honest, besides american psycho i think the rant was the best thing bale ever did..

    i didnt mind the first batman, but i HATED TDK, especially bale’s performance…

    and yes, you are well smart :)

  14. I hope its real just so I know that it’s actually being made. Notice how Bale isn’t wearing a bandana…..well, maybe he will wear one later in the movie IF it’s real. I dont really mind it, but it would be stupid to not have him wear one. heck, Prince of Persia film already has footage released and people had no clue, so…..

  15. Snake has hair. Look at christian bales. Its probably just a picture from terminator salvation

  16. Seriously I love christian Bale, But he AS SNAKE? I’m just not sure about it! besides, what the hell is Daniel Craig Doing there?

  17. I really love Christian Bale and his works.
    He is a best method actor in his gen.
    Dedicated his art, hard working, so down to earth.
    IMO he should be a best choice for snake but i prefer him
    independent movie like ‘Machinist’or ‘Harsh times’etc.
    He is amazing indeed!!

  18. its a movie pitch shown to movie execs what this film would be like. the poster is real, but its still just a mock-up.

  19. Ha ha… look at the finger to the left of the poster… it's in exactly the same position (meeting the frame at the knuckle at both angles) It's a total photoshop image… And good thing… I love the games to death but there have been NO good video game based movies EVER… Plus I heard David Hayter wrote a script but it was rejected… F*** you Hollywood… Don't ruin this for the fans…

  21. Question: Why is Bale not wearing a bandana? Not to question your sources, but this wouldnt be a hard photoshop job. Im not against Bale as Snake…But I cant say Im buyin it.
