I AM baby GROOT – Robots Root 22 August 2017

What I love most about this series of Mondo prints for the BR release of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 isn’t actually Rocket here, which I L O V E… it’s that the Baby Groot piece is smaller in scale. Check it out here.

Meanwhile, it’s Robot’s Root all of a sudden…

  • Here’s a summary of the new film Glass, completing the [surprise] Unbreakable trilogy. I wasn’t interested in seeing the second film, though I enjoyed reading about it… but I’m stoked on this one.
  • Punisher: good lord. What have they done. Chrome bustiers?!? Ah I can’t unsee it.
  • Ed Skrein (Deadpool) has joined the Hellboy reboot as a military dude from BPRD that can shift into a panther or jaguar or what have you. I’ll bite. So to speak. Also,¬†David Harbour’s description of what tone he’s taking with the Hellboy character sounds more in tune with the comics and intrigues me greatly.
  • Pedro Pascal has joined Equalizer 2, along with returning Denzel Washington. I love this guy. I can’t wait.
  • Lung convinced me (with enthusiasms) to break my tenuous blackout on Blade Runner 2049 and watch this new promo. By Crom it’s wonderful. That said, I’m super tired of trailers preceding the trailer, as they do now.
  • I don’t think I’ve begun processing the news that a Joker solo origin story out of DC WB continuity is in development. I get the pedigree of the production. I get the balls in pursuing other versions of these characters. But it seems like such a poor, poor decision. Like, Confederacy poor. Not in continuity stories only work when mainstream viewers are sufficiently familiar with the prime continuity, and trust the studio enough to embrace non-continuity projects on their own terms (see Legion)… and really. Joker ORIGIN? Very few things we need less. Then again, as of today, Matt Reeves is claiming The Batman is out of continuity as well. Huh.
  • Meanwhile, and I know I’m in the minority in seeing some redeeming value in the DCCU Lex Luthor… but apparently his role was cut in Justice league. That’s alarming to me, as his relationship to Steppenwolf and the Mother Boxes was a big thing.

 

That’s all for now. Back to treating my own post-GoT PTSD… speaking of, our latest podcast is out, covering the most recent two episodes of Game of Toles. And please wish our man Deeply Dapper a happy 21st birthday!
