Supergirl Coming to CBS (Article) - 9/19/2014 6:46:54 PM

Ditto what just about everybody else said.

Nobody going to suggest an actress?  OK, I'll start.  How about Theresa Palmer?  Would have loved Yvonne Strahovski, but they will most assuredly go younger.  Maybe even younger than Palmer...

 

 

Doctor Strange - Official Release Date Announced (Article) - 9/18/2014 8:17:34 AM

Peter Dinklage.  Definitely Peter Dinklage.

 

You know, I say that in jest, but I could actually kind of see him in the costume and not doing a bad job...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - New Season 2 Preview (Article) - 9/16/2014 9:44:38 AM

The burning question that I want to know is...

Has Tim Janson watched The Winter Soldier yet?  :)

DC Comics Gay Character Revealed (Article) - 9/12/2014 11:57:21 AM

Dang, I got my Jessicas mixed up.  I thought the netflix series was going to be about Jessica Drew, just not with the alter ego of Spider Woman.  Jessica Jones is another Marvel character entirely that I'm not too familiar with. 

Then, to top all that off, when I realized my mistake, I somehow thought I had gotten the names switched for  Jessica Drew and Nancy Drew... It's been a long day/week!

Wiseguy, that was kind of my point about vampires & zombies, I just didn't word it well.  Seemed like at the height of the Twilight craze, studios were churning out crappy vampire stuff to cash in on the latest fad.  Then focus seemed to shift towards zombies.

But yes, you make a good point.  I guess I would rather them try and make some of these shows (and possibly fail) as opposed to not trying at all.  So point goes to you, Wiseguy!

TV Series:

  • Gotham
  • Flash
  • Arrow
  • Titans
  • Constatine
  • Supergirl
  • Agent's of Shield
  • Agent Carter
  • Daredevil
  • Punisher
  • Jessica Drake/Spider-Woman
  • Marvel Netflix Series #4 (forgot what the 4th one was)
  • Walking Dead
  • Walking Dead companion show

And I still feel like I'm forgetting a series or two (besides Comic Book Men).  Holy Funny Pages, Batman! That's a ton of shows!  I fear half of these will be crap, and then studios will be scared away from superhero shows.  I also fear the same could happen with all of the big screen adventures.  Are superheroes the latest flash in the pan, much like Vampires, Zombies, etc...?  I hope not.

As long as Marvel (and then in turn, DC) keep churning out quality movies the Age of the Superheroes/Comics should be ok for a ways to come.

Titans%u2019 TV Series, Based on DC Comic, May Come to TNT (Article) - 9/12/2014 8:08:19 AM

OK, I'm starting to get concerned that the networks are going to oversaturate the market with superhero shows.  Let some of these other shows establish themselves and see if they work before approving 40 other shows that will get canned at the first sign of viewer fatigue.

I hope they all do well, but I have my doubts...

MOCKINGJAY PT 1 %u2013 Final Poster Debut (Article) - 9/10/2014 8:35:03 PM

They are taking the worst book, and making two movies out of it...

There is a lot of material to cover there, I suppose.  I suspect I'll like the Mockingjay movies better than the book, though.

New Batmobile Photos from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (Article) - 9/10/2014 2:17:46 PM

With the doors open, it looks like Ozymandias' pet, Bubastis.  :)

Neil Gaiman's Hansel and Gretel gets Film! (Article) - 9/8/2014 8:28:20 AM

So this means the chances of a move getting made are now 10 percent instead of 1 percent, right?  How many properties get movie options that never see the light of day?

Now having said that, don't think I'm knocking the source material.  It hasn't even been released yet, so who knows how good it is.  With the movie options already sold, would make one tend to think it should be pretty good, but we will have to wait and see.  Hope it is good stuff!

DC Comics Gay Character Revealed (Article) - 9/4/2014 1:45:08 PM

To jump back on a topic discussed a few pages back...

Regarding an older Batman in Dawn of Justice, just thought I'd float this idea out there.  If the DCCU takes off as well as we all hope, do you think that they may be planning some Batman prequels that happen in Gotham before MoS?  Ones with a younger actor cast as the Dark Knight?  I think this may be a reality, perhaps after Ben Affleck has starred in one solo Batman movie.  Then you could have Affleck reprise his role for any Justice League films, and a younger Batman for the solo films.

I don't know as if I like that idea, but I wonder if that may be their plan...
