Now I'm depressed their turning the Toxic Avenger into Captain Planet. As for Real Genius can't say much, but no real point I can see in remaking it.

Without Lloyd Kaufman, it will suck.  Thankfully, Lloyd is working on Toxic Avenger 5.

Who needs a Toxie remake when they're working on Toxie 5. I'd much rather get a sequel than a remake.

Sh!t, really?  So this answers the question: How could it be worse? 
The TOXIC AVENGER "reimagining" the article details is just lame and corny.  And it is absurd that both films would even be considered for remake.  TOXIC AVENGER and REAL GENIUS were successful in the VHS market, not at the box office, and certainly TOXIC AVENGER is a kind of classic (a Gorehound's classic) yet you know some twit in Hollyweird thinks these types of "remakes" are cash cows 'cause of their cult status... y'know like BEWITCHED or THE STEPFORD WIVES or whatever.  Doomed. 

"...The 'Real Genius' remake is being developed by Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment. The cast and director have yet to be announced, though casting Kilmer as Professor Jerry Hathaway (originally played by William Atherton) would be a stroke of ... well, genius..." 
Eh, or VAL will lobby for the part, looking for work.   Lookingup

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
