His Red Right Hand – 8 October 2018

Well, it sure looks like Hellboy to me. Word on the street, ie. NYCC, is that it’s gooooood stuff.

 

Meanwhile, in space:

  • The teaser for The Boys looks SPOT ON. And I’m really warming to Jack Quaid in lieu of Simon Pegg, though it’s great the latter will step in to play the father of the former.
  • Not sure what to make of Venom’s strong opening weekend. We’ll see what second weekend and international releases look like, because that’s where the morbid curiosity viewers fall away and lack of repeat business and demographic penetration kills these films. Still, stronger than I would have expected.
  • Not even Minka Kelly can save that terrible Dove costume design. It’s comics-canon, sure, but those goggles never made any sense. Still, I mean, for DC fans… who would have thought they’d have Hawk and Dove live action?
  • I don’t know, other than a post Avengers 4 multiverse/time retcon situation, how they’d make Dark Avengers work, but you know I’d be first in line. I loved that series.
  • From the trailers-I-didn’t-watch department, another Daredevil one, this time teasing Bullseye.
  • Good Omens looks fantastic. Very nice casting and good chemistry. I never read the Neil Gaiman series, but I’m into it.
  • Nightflyers continues to interest me.
  • A reminder that Deadly Class is still coming in January. Yes please.
  • Here’s a fanart of a possible look for Black Canary in the Birds of Prey series. I have to tell you, my Black Canary pieces do well at conventions. I think it’s the fishnets.
  • An Expanse S04 teaser for you. YESYESYESYESYESYES

And finally, for a very specific kind of porno: Tom Hardy feeding shelter dogs sausages.

 

Speaking of Sticky Strands – Robots Root 7 Aug 2018

I like the Japanese poster Venom more than the trailer Venom. All those sticky strands holding the jaw together…

Speaking of sticky strands, THE NEWS:

  • Vantablack rules everything around me…
  • Good buzz coming out regarding Daredevil S03 coming this fall. I’m into it.
  • In the last year I’ve read three or four articles talking about the business of maintaining old CRT arcade machines. Pretty interesting. Outrun was definitely my jam.
  • Disney doesn’t appear to be responding to calls for Gunn’s return. I’m liking that Dave Bautista has taken a career-risking step further and thrown serious shade at Disney about it.
  • The John Wick and 300 folks are working on an Alcatraz movie. I THINK I’m into it. I don’t enjoy prison films, but I do like pressure cookers with some trickery.
  • What I find most interesting about Alex Garland’s new project is the casting. Sonoya made quite an impression on him… and me, of course. Plus, RON!
  • Shogun is coming back, and I’m all for that.
  • Lots of Birds of Prey casting rumors… which all sound fine. I did like Bosslogic’s Black Canary. I mean, I think I do?
  • UGH UGH UGH with prequels that make no sense. Die Hard prequel??? The events of the first film created the character (and it should have been a done in one)… we don’t need a prequel. And 24?? I mean, come on. Of course, I make an exception for Batman. But only if we never see any MAH PARENTS ARE DEADDDDD moments.
  • CBS is gunning for all Trek, all the time. The fact that Patrick Stewart confirmed at the con that he’s coming back for the new show, featuring an older Picard, struck me as both interesting and exhausting shows to me that they really need to strike a new tone and perspective for this show to make it carry weight. Same producers and writers as the current crop of stuff, though. I don’t mind the idea of an older senior command Picard torn with difficult, ore realistic political problems… I’d like to see him weather gray area military issues (or non-military, depending on what version of Starfleet we’re even talking about) in a way TNG never did. Just no more ‘once more unto the breach! bullshit like the films. Let everyone be dead or older and retired. No away teaming. PLEASE.
  • Well, here’s Todd McFarlane critiquing the new Venom for you. Happy Tuesday.
  • Edward james Olmos cut from Predator? HOW DARE YOU SIR.
  • I’m down with Jessica Chastain’s new spy project. MOAR PLS!
  • Lung sent me this: the best papercraft Darth Vader bust ever. Not that I have time or inclination to make it, but I COULD.
