Please if snyone needs to be bashed for asian stereotypes its the guy who played storm shadow.

 

We all know Asians are great drivers, the problem is they kidnap deaf high school girls to fight Dolph Lundgren to much. Great earings though.

Well looks like DC finalyy smarted up..But what a shitty ass line up of movies!..PFFTT LOL I mean really. Marvel came out swinngin with an awesome line up of projected projects and they are delivering. Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and THE AVENGERS. Dc is like Well we have Lobo (who gives a rats ass), Human Target (WTF Not even a super hero story), Midnight Mass (WTF is that?), Jona Hex (C list star at best), and then finally GREEN LANTERN (the only true shining star in that whole line up). Where is Wonder Woman, Superman, Martian Man Hunter, Flash, JUSTICE LEAGUE? Sorry DC have to say this announcement of future projects is an EPIC FAIL!

wiseguy, you're just lame.  i'm thinking you've got to be one of these middle aged white guys who desperately wants to be hip and thinks ethnic humor is the key to getting young boys to accept you as their MySpace friend.  Kids, don't send wiseguy a picture of yourselves with your shirt off, no matter what he promises you!

Back on topic, I'm actually a little more concerned over this move than Disney taking Marvel.  I can see Marvel staying independent like Pixar.  This Warner Bros move puts a studio person in charge of comics, and I hope doesn't take the attitude of strip-mining the comics for movies, at the expense of comics.

sleeper, What about the picture I got from you spreading your cheeks? Oh I get it, you want me all for yourself, you selfish little piggy, I see what you're doing.

Back on topic, you may have a point. At least Marvel has Feige in charge who's very knowledgeable about the characters

Well, this might be good news for DC...We'll see. As always I care about the comics first other entertainment second....you guys remember comics ...right?

I wanna see the new He-Man find a home...Just scored a pretty near mint He-Man original Action figure this weekend for free...Added it to my geek doll collection.

 

AND What a bunch of pussies on this site...why?

Obviously Wise was joking, and I was laughing... it wasn't hurtful, just a joke about stereotyoes, WHICH BY THE WAY are based on truth to some degree (A latina girlfriend and I argued about this until it nearly broke us up....and in the end she won...She convince an overly sensitive bleeding heart liberal to lighten up, and see how sterotypes are based on truth...this was a well educated ethnic, woman who taught me this not a white guy(

Political Correctness is soooo GAY!

That was gauleyboy who sent you the pics, wiseguy, not me.  But hey, as long as you two are consenting adults, you two can do whatever you like.

I dunno about this move.  What was wrong with the arrangement before?  Warner Bros. already owned DC.  This move just seems designed to give the movie studio the keys to the kingdom, but if the movie people don't understand comics then I think it could be a mistake.

Imagine the movie people issuing declarations like, "Okay, now everything in the Batman comic books has to reflect the Nolan universe.  Everything else is out!" because they want to promote the next Batman movie.  Or "All the comic lines should talk up the Green Lantern, since he's the next big franchise.  Everyone should talk about how awesome Green Lantern is!"

You know studio heads are capable of that kind of bone-headed blundering.  We've seen it before.

So not finding the perpetuating of a stereotype funny makes one a pussy? How do you know it wasn't hurtful, cause you found it funny? I'm sure Wiseguy didn't say it to hurt asian people but maybe an asian read it and now hates Wiseguy for it cause he had his feelings hurt.

Anyway, I just wanted to know what's up.

I think it may have helped if the "joke" was actually funny and/or original. If you think stereotypes are funny, try and figure out some original jokes and observations. Some comedians can actually put a funny spin on racial stereotypes and racism (see Dave Chapelle, Louie CK, Chris Rock). You are just rehashing lines that were made popular by white-sheet-wearing hicks, and racist trying-to-be-cool-online children.

 

A hack and a racist.

Of course with the move that Marvel did, you know DC had to do something to keep them relevant. I think that it will be good for business, and hopefully some of these properties can make it to the screen, large or otherwise....this could be the begining of something really good...time will tell....

As far as everyone wussing out....man up and grow a pair....take a f**king joke and have a sense of humor already? The world is screwed up enough as it is....don't bring that crap here....

ponyboy76 9/10/2009 11:33:31 AM

Its funny how I have so much less confidence in this Warner Bros deal than the Big Mouse/Marvel one. I agree with Sleeper because it really comes down to how they are going to handle the DC properties and from what we've read, it doesn't bode well with who they have in charge. They have to realize that the comics should come first but I doubt they will think that way and the comic side will suffer. Oh well, I`m more of a Marvel head anyway.

Can't we all just get along? Or just go back to blaming it on the blacks and hispanics.
