You Wouldnt Like Me When I’m Angry – 28 Sept 2018

My first three reactions, from my first three viewings, of Dark Phoenix’s trailer were not great. But there’s more optimism out there in the fan reaction world than i anticipated. Plenty of doubt, too. I suspect, and frankly hope, that the males talking about Jean instead of showing much of anything about her manifestation is because they’re trying to keep as much of her actual vibe secret as long as possible. I hold out faint hope for a proper Dark Phoenix costume, too. It’s one of the best in the comics. Anyway, the trailer was mild. I do appreciate them showing us very little of the external antagonist, who I suspect is a hybrid of the Sh’iar and Mastermind. They kept the focus as a guilty family secret type situation. The best part was the most subtle: the faint Phoenix Fire image in the logo animation at the end, thus:

 

Meanwhile, in space, this may be happening right now:

  • I’m well into Marvel. I’m a legit zombie. But I could never get behind Eternals. I mean, I could get behind Selene maybe. But that aside, I mainly used them as post-Celestial cannon fodder in the Marvel RPG. But hey, Kirby is Kirby, and if it makes for a good movie, I’ll be there.
  • I can’t speak for the actress playing Black Canary, as I do not have any familiarity with her, but I’m enjoying the idea of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress in Birds of Prey. Where’s the photomanips?!

  • Also, I would LOVE Sharlto Copley as a Black Mask, if that happened.
  • An interesting point here about Han Solo’s cinematic failings, one that we were aware of in general, but it’s easy to overlook in the wake of fanboy raging: Disney dumped it into theaters two weeks after INFINITY WAR, and gave it minuscule marketing breathing room by Star Wars standards. Imagine if Han Solo came out in the December slot… not buried under the biggest Marvel film ever and still too hot to touch after the Last Jedi debates. And there’s this. And also this. But anyway, I’m a fan, and I’m looking forward to these deleted scenes
  • Do what you have to do. Make the best Hellboy that can ever be?

  • Finally, the first pic from The Boys. I’m down! It’s neat how much most of the cast looks like their comics versions and then Urban is just grizzly.
  • Nic Pizzolatto? Ben Foster? Noir grime? SO DOWN.
  • I know I’m the target age for this movie audience, but this was great.
  • I dunno. The classic comics colors on Aquaman are OK, but the gold armor is even better… hey, I’m just there for the vomiting.

  • I present: the Hybridizer. I mean, I did it for the old timey. But you do you.
  • Well, this is dope. Do the tapes fly out and attack you in Whole Foods?
  • The thing about the Venom movie is… I mean… just do THIS. Quit with the dancing around it.
  • This is beautiful and terrible. Boom!

 

And with that, I’m off into the redwoods to camp for the weekend, doing THIS pretty much non stop.

Darwyn Cooke is the Wrong Man – 13 May 2016

FUCK! Darwyn Cooke is suffering from an aggressive cancer. A wonderful artist and apparently a sweet guy. UPDATE: he passed away last night.

Joel Kinnaman is attached to an adaptation of the late cyberpunk novel Altered Carbon. Guess I should move that up to the top of my stack of books waiting to be read before I’m theoretically dead. I love Joel Kinnaman BTW. I didn’t know how I felt about him in Robocop, or rather, AS Robocop, going in, but then warmed up to him quickly. Loved him in House of Cards. Love him in SS trailers, though he’s barely recognizable.

Can’t even tell that’s Ben Foster, and Chris Pine feels more real when not in pretty boy mode. Just like Brad Pitt’s deal.

Now. The Accountant. I kid you not, I may be more excited for this Affleckness than I was about his Batman.

Why Elon Musk wins, if nothing else: He hired Jose Fernandez to do design work on the space suits. I mean, SERIOUS!

Adam McKay is adapting Irredeemable as a feature film. The comic featured basically an unhinged Superman nuking the Justice league and then nuking everyone else, and when done nuking, nuking some more. Sounds great!

Jason Rainville’s essay on simplified, unified design principles is basically a master class in everything I struggle to do as an artist, and I love it, 3,000,000 times. READ IT!
