No Good To Us Dead – Robots Root 4 Oct 2018

My favorite news of the moment is the confirmation that Jon Favreau’s SW TV series will be called The Mandalorian, and have a lone gunslinger vibe. I’ve only scratched the surface of Mandalore in the Clone Wars series thus far, but I’ll be interested to see if it’s another species wearing Mandalorian armor, as with the Fetts, or if it’s a true Mandalorian, who eppear to have a pretty interesting story of their own. Either way, exploring the Outer Reach, shooting to kill, best helmet design in the series, I’m on board…bonus: Pedro Pascal in the live action SW series? YES PLS

 

Meanwhile, this may be happening RIGHT now:

  • I haven’t watched this, being in back to back meetings all day, but I’m optimistic. Ferrell’s haircut alone! DAPPER. Update: Welp, yep, I AM THE TARGET MARKET.
  • Despite my doubts, they just sold me on the Kingsman prequel. I mean, I didn’t have doubts about it being a prequel… or even about the speculative film’s value… I just figured that Millar was spouting without anything to back it up, given that Kingsman 2 didn’t do very well. But I like the concept of the series and I’m on board. But whoa: Ralph Fiennes?!? Yes please.
  • Want some candy? Yes, of course they do.
  • Bad Birds of Prey news, following on the heels, so to speak, of very good news earlier this week… Rosie Perez appears to have been cast as the Question. Why for the love of R’yleh… I held out this morning for awhile hoping it was a hoax.
  • I don’t know why they keep referring to the uniforms in Dark Phoenix as ‘classic’… I mean, I guess compared to others in the franchise they are, but these are Frank Quitely’s excellent designs from New X-Men thanks. Love it!
  • I don’t need a lot of Luke in my Star Wars IX, but I do dig the concept of a flashback showing him pulling Star Destroyers into orbit. What a great image. Well, THROUGH orbit.
  • Here’s a trailer for Runaways S02. I’m stoked!
  • Hey look: at least Venom is compared (fairly) favorably to Catwoman. But look, here’s a reasonably, contextually, positive review about what’s in the tin.
  • Entourage played the Aquaman movie concept as a riff on big budget supers films with no artistic merit, ie. the ultimate low-brow sellout move with devastating financial and professional risk. But as this look back shows, it mirrored the future reality pretty accurately.
  • Though it’s pretty likely Amazon will pull it once they figure it out, they are allowing Verhooven’s original X-rated cut of Robocop to stream on Prime right now. I need to get on that myself!
  • Disney just greenlit a Lilo and Stitch live action adaptation. I’m on board: great 3d alien and a more powerful non-traditional body image situation for young girls than the more famous Moana. Excellent!
  • This is a cool Millennium Falcom triptych, but I’d like it more if there was NO there there between them. Imply it, don’t show it!
  • Surprisingly, at least one review claims there’s MORE there there to the Titans series, in a way that JUST might be interesting enough to try out. Despite that Starfire.

Thats all for today. We are recording another episode of Robot-Kraken tonight, so if you feel a tingling, happy sensation, it’s probably your collective awareness of our enthusiasms. All hail the TRDL hive mind!

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.

Its the Little Things – 4 July 2018

This is an old poster from a few weeks ago, but I still love it: the swagger, and the use of the popcorn and more importantly the dust or salt, really works for me. Early reviews are very complimentary, so I look forward to seeing it soon.

Meanwhile:

Still on the move, after San Francisco Comic Con and Fandemic Con… I’ve started putting photos up from both shows on our IG (find it at robotkraken_podcast ) but there’s still a lot to catch up on.

  • I do wish it talked to you in a mollifyingly calm voice or locked you out of your own house… but as a low-capacity, overpriced flash drive, it’ll do.
  • First pics of Linda Hamilton in the new Terminator filming sneaks, and no surprise, she looks RAD. Meanwhile, Mackenzie Davis just looks like a dirty Robin Wright, but with cyber-stitches.
  • Here’s some prosthetic limb experiments with ‘pain’ sensory input. At the least, tactile feedback is crucial.
  • According to some that have seen it, the upcoming Dark Phoenix trailer is ‘better than expected’ which is high praise. ha.
  • TMNT is headed for yet another reboot. I’m ok with it. There were a few concepts from the Bayification I liked OK, from what i saw, but I’d really like to see something more like the Incredibles style, where the stylization is more creative and animated.
  • The Disney acquisition plan is off and then on and then off and now looks greenlit by both investors and the SEC. I’m stoked. I want those toys played with in those hands.
  • Sylvia Hoeks is NOT who I imagined to take the Tara role in Queen and Country. However, she IS cool and I just love that the film is proceeding.
  • Silk has apparently been greenlit at Sony… look, this is the first one with half a chance. It’s the modern Spider-Woman that the younger set relates to, and while it will still feel like a Spider-Man knock-off, at least it has a female, and Asian, in the lead role. And if they run with Tiffany Espenson from the Spider-Man: Homecoming casting, I’m even more into it.
  • The fact that the news sites are running with this story that Ultron could have had a bigger, badder, better final act shows how blah the original was in the public consciousness… because a giant Ultron-globbed giant giant Ultron is lame as shit.
  • I mean, kids are dumb… but in this modern world we are descending into, I can actually SEE this being an issue.
  • If you are near Alamo Drafthouse (or one in particular) they are getting into the subscription game.
  • Not sure how I feel about Patrick Stewart supposedly getting close to signing on for another Trek series. I hope it’s the type of thing where he’s an elder Commander or something. I like seeing the passage of time and evolution of characters. I do NOT want to see the Good Ole Crew together on an old timey adventure again, though.
  • How would you feel about a V for Vendetta sequel? The unasked question, I think.
  • This Iron Man/ TRON mashup is A M A Z E. I love it 10,000 x 3 times.

Speaking of catching up, we are a bit behind in the podcast as we were unable to record during the shows and are now all scrambling in different parts of the world for a few weeks. We have a few films to review, as well as the finales of Westworld and Expanse to wrap up… so stay tuned!

The Cavalcade of Helmetless Heroes – Robots Root 9 Mar 2018

 

Herewith, witness the Calvacade of Helmetless Heroes FFS!

 

Meanwhile, in space, this may be happening:

  • Honest Trailers does He-Man
  • My favorite How to Dad video yet.
  • I kinda like this promo pic for Daredevil S03… done by Joe Q, even. I’ ve always been a fan of lettering pushed into the environment of the piece.
  • I have to agree: if we couldn’t have an actually FORMIDABLE foes in Phasma, at least give her this scene to show her ruthlessness…
  • Now here’s the full trailer for Prospect, which still adorns my desktop as a background screen…
  • Killmonger concept art shows that the final version was the best choice. I still wish he kept the mask on the whole time… it was awesome.
  • More neural net fun, this time with sentence gradients.
  • Again, not a horror fan, but Endless looks pretty interesting. Lovecraftian doomsday cult business. Sure!
  • Dafne Keen is on board the new big budget take on His Dark Materials… I think they are abandoning the Golden Compass released prior…
  • Krysten Ritter says no Defenders S02 was planned, nor does one look likely. Depending on how you felt about S01, your mileage varies on this news…

  • Official confirmation direct from Patty Jenkins of Kristin Wiig joining WW2 as Cheetah. I’m intrigued!
  • Karl Urban confirmed that, as suspected, Alex Garland not only wrote Dredd, but stepped in and directed it once the director was canned.

  • Welp, pre-FX aside, Shazam’s costume does indeed appear to be the classic one, with the ubiquitous fine texture weave I hate so much. The fake muscles are weird, but I like the way they handled the lightning bolt, and the cool nod to the golden age books with those Talky Tawny symbols at the cape. The cape design itself, with the stiff hood, is creating a weird massing to his upper half, something I’ve worried about when designing a similar vibe on some TRDL characters with hoods…
  • Rumors are afoot that Jessica Drew may be brought into Spider-Man 2 as a female lead. I’d be down with it. Super down!
  • Neat: Jon Favreau has been announced as helming a Star Wars live action show, presumably for the new streaming service.
  • Mackenzie Davis from Halt and Catch Fire (and more recently, Blade Runner 2049) may have been tapped for Terminator 6… which bodes well for Terminator 6…
  • Elseworlds may be dead… but Black Label is new, and is basically the same thing. I like that Wonder Woman, if nothing else.
  • I love that Westworld not only embraces their obsessive fan community of conspiracy theorists and plot hypothesizers (like this guy) they are actively involving them/us in S02.
  • Reshoots on Deadpool 2… after bad test screenings… thats not good. As nice as the current pedigree technically is (re: our recent podcast about Atomic Blonde and John Wick 2) I wonder what we lost when Tim Miller left.
  • NEED
  • I remain uninterested in Superman comics, but I think BMB is right: optimism is what sets him apart from other characters, and needs to be the focus. All Star Superman was successful in this way.
  • I am SO DOWN with the Morrison/Quitely New X-Men costumes happening here. FINALLY.
  • Lastly, Lego Pacific Rim sweding! Excellent. I’d rather watch that.

 

Custom Decorative Tissue – Robots Root 30 Jan 2018

The Ultimate Unboxing Video, by goneintorapture.com. I still can’t stop staring at it. I love it so.

Meanwhile, in space:

  • While the execution is a little rough, i like the concept of Westworld viral being Delos interfaces and data screens that have been corrupted by bloody warnings and cries for help. Also, I’m holding my breath until Westworld S02, thanks. LOVE it.
  • This look at the new tech used to film the Valkyrie flashbacks in Ragnarok is fascinating, if you’re into that sort of thing, which I am. Otherwise, just look at the test footage, which feels like a microcosm glance at how fun that shoot must have been. All the behind the scenes stuff makes Waititi feel like a force of nature. A subversive one.
  • I loved this video. I love scale videos. Scale fascinates me. I appreciates that the scale reference module shifts in the video, from a human to a dump truck to the Statue of Liberty. I don’t quite understand the scale mismatch on the Xenomorph (2.1m) and Predator (2.2m) but otherwise very cool. I think my favorite was classic Mothra, complete with a 747 for scale.
  • The fanbase for Monty Python is dying out (more figuratively than literally, one hopes) but for those of us who remember the animations, here’s great archival of Gilliam walking an interviewer through the cut-animation process. Love it. As the so . of past-up artists in the days before digital, I enjoy reminders of the hands-on crafter approach to all of this prior to the advent of modern tools.
  • Jessica Jones S02, March 08, that’s all we need to know. No spoilers so far, which I appreciate, other than hints of Purple Man.
  • Here’s an amazing miniature VHS library. For science.
  • Hans Zimmer is apparently scoring Dark Phoenix. This is only important because Zimmer was supposedly retired from supers films. I just love his scores, regardless of the super side of it, but I do think he elevates material.
  • Indiana Jones 5 begins production in 2019, supposedly. Cue all the skeleton memes from Raiders.

That’s all for today. My today. Probably your last night. Time travel is weird.

Bruce Wayne Drinks Martinis – Robots Root 2 January 2018

Jon Hamm as Bruce Wayne is all I’ve ever wanted, suddenly. Where all the photomanips are, can’t tell you.

Belated Root! This was written and scheduled to post right before Xmas… but since the Internet is now ruined, it did not.

  • Good news. The Dark Phoenix movie swears it passes the Bechdel Test. Pretttttty low bar, but then again, look what we’ve become.
  • Just failed to resist watching the new BP international trailer. I swear this one is going to be almost as fun color theory as Coco… the shots are breathtakingly arranged.
  • I just read this satirical article about how terrible A-Wings are… and it reminded me: I used to hate, but now love, B-Wings. Somewhere in my late 30’s I fell in love with asymmetry. Admittedly the Falcon still bothers me, but it’s more of a line of sight thing.
  • I don’t mind waiting until 2019 for a Stranger Things 3. It takes time to do it right. My one concern is that kids age up pretty rapidly. But hey. Can’t stop biology.
  • Supposedly a Ben Kenobi film will begin production in 2019 for release in 2020. I still have my doubts on this project, if it’s on Tattooine. I’d like to mine a different well and tell a story that doesn’t involve that planet. I can imagine a number of interesting explorations post Ep VIII that could be fun, and even pair a few legacy characters in an interesting way. What if he goes into hiding but Boba Fett is on the hunt? We could see him on the run across numerous cool worlds, and outsmarting the supposedly best bounty hunter in the galaxy, a cat and mouse game where the pair are almost equal, until Kenobi lands in Tattooine and manages to stay below Fett’s radar despite his employer in IV. There, Disney. Free.
  • I didn’t think I’d be interested, but hot damn is this animation style not working for this project! Looks awesome.
  • Jessica Jones S02 trailer is up. My favorite detail was her receiving a Maleev cover as a painting or some such.
  • My response to the Battle Angel Alita trailer was initially so severe I didn’t have interest in actually WATCHING it. The eyes killed me. But I finally did. And you know what? I still think this literal reaction to anime is an art school experiment gone awry… but the rest of it looks like good cyberpunk. I really like the translucency and detail in her arms.
  • Your chance of being accidentally murdered by a pizza bot in SF has reduced dramatically. And by accidentally,  I mean on purpose, because robots.
  • I WOULD TOLLY GO.
  • This is supposedly a model test for Venom. if true, I’m disappointed. I wanted something less literal, more like the commando version from recent years.
  • The concept for the ongoing series spinning out of What We Do in the Shadows is brilliant.
  • I want those plans.
  • Having apparently learned nothing from the Dark Universe implosion, Paramount have announced a number of release dates for Hasbro properties, without any concept to guide them. There’s some real gems in there… maybe even a Jem… ha. I mean no. But maybe.

Stay tuned for fresh Root, as well as more info on the next Robot-Kraken podcast episode and our upcoming convention appearances, later this week!

The Podcast That Forgot What it’s Like to Fear Death – Robots Root 6 Dec 2017

I WANT ALTERED CARBON IN MY FACE ASAP

Meanwhile…

Somewhere in space… it’s Robot’s Root:

  • Once again, Disney and Fox are “thisclose” to the deal… so, what do you think? Will Disney fold in the X-Men and FF properties as part of the likely multiverse thing coming after Infinity War?

  • Free Deadpool tattoos. What could go wrong? I’ll take free Negasonic tattoos though. And by free Negasonic tattoos, I mean applying tattoos onto what is already a peak hawt package. ZING!
  • I’d like all these Star Wars jackets a lot more if they didn’t have rebel logos or whatever on them. Less literal. Also, half this price.
  • Watch this GIF… do you hear it? I do.
  • It’s true: Nolan benefitted from a less compressed time of supers film production. He had a film in between each Batman film, and he told a story he cared about, largely or entirely without studio interference. However, he also benefitted from being Christopher Nolan in the first place. There’s a vision.
  • Interesting Stranger Things theory: is the demogorgon part of Eleven’s manifestation? I doubt it, given the events of S02… but still, good effort.
  • Here’s some cool concept art for Valkyrie from Andy park!
  • For Aeon-Flux fans, you can now watch the entire Liquid Television series streamed to your eyeballs like an errant fly.
  • As I’ve said on the pod, an AI vs AI vs AI direction in the Alien franchise sounds good to me. It just doesn’t make much more sense as a PREQUEL.
  • Batman almost had a shitty speeder bike in Justice League. Just look. Plus, somewhere, out there, there’s footage of the black Superman costume. I can’t wait until it surfaces.
  • Some potential Iron Fist S02 villain hints here in the casting notes… I mean, I could go either way, now that the showrunner has changed. Alice Eve was just cast as well…
  • NINJA TREE CLAWS
  • Margot Robbie is doing some sort of Harley Quinn something or other. I mean, who’s to say.
  • This Batman ninja business is the BUSINESS.
  • ADAM part 3 is no online. Hot damn.
  • Hellboy has a release date, and it’s too far away. Maybe, given what happened when they rushed JL, that’s OK.
  • Disney cast Mulan, and didn’t cock it up, even.
  • Historical nightmare fuel.
  • In an era of perpetual reboots, this plea from Alex Proyas against the Crow remake was pretty profound. Of course I’m of the age to have an emotional connection to that first film, too.
  • I haven’t watched any Black Mirror so far, but I might start

  • New images from next year’s Dark Phoenix surprise the hell out of me. My expectations were so low. This early look of Jean Grey transforming, even if its just stylized for these images… they’re really great. I like the cracking apart of her flesh. Not strictly consumed by fire, but also separating into component atoms. Wow. I also like the apparent change in concept for the Phoenix Force, and that the X-Men are popular, with Xavier being reckless in his deployment of the team beyond their capability, the hubris and overconfidence implied.
  • Finally, I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve been watching, and enjoying, Runaways. We’ll be talking about that soon, but in the meantime, a good article about how the Hulu production makes good use of their established budget to put together FX for the deinonychus, Old Lace, featured in the show. It’s a good example of a production not overreaching beyond their budget, and spending the money wisely.

So Many Hubcaps – Robots Root 30 August 2017

 

Mondo is once again killing it. KILLING IT like fantasy San Francisco kills hubcaps, and the consistent quantity thereof…

 

Thus, it’s Robot’s Root!

  • Someone helpfully ran George RR Martin’s work through a neural network, and wrote Winds of Winter for him. It’s A M A Z I N G.
  • Blade of the Immortal excites me. Greatly.
  • Terry Pratchett requested that his unpublished work be destroyed upon his demise. Boy was it.
  • This title cracked me up, and click through and see that they are in fact 100% correct.
  • We haven’t recorded any commentary about Defenders for the podcast just yet, but it shouldn’t be a spoiler for you to see this photo of Misty Knight going forward. I’m pleased with the design resolution.
  • Simon Kinberg “doesn’t want Dark Phoenix to be too intergalactic” according to Total Film… which may or may not be true, but sounds right. Superfans are outraged, but where has Fox shown they could handle a spontaneously revealed sprawling space story? Just because James Gunn pulled it off doesn’t mean we would suddenly have anything that would make ANY sense in the context of the X-Men films…
  • New dark-look Luke looks rad. Buckles and straps have buckles and straps!
  • Supposedly SS2 is delayed until; a production date at least 2 years out, due to ‘schedule conflicts with Will Smith’ which is probably code for ‘we don’t know what we’re doing’ since WB/DC have been looking at multiple concepts for films in this corner of their semi-universe, some believe as a means to have these ideas leaked and see what fan response would be to them and letting the people sort it out.
  • Normally I sort of breeze through these listicles, but there were a few items in this one about Terminator films that interested me. Notably that Arnie gained weight and muscle to return to the exact dims, in T3, as he had 12 years earlier in T2; and that Loken, again in T3, had to lose weight for her role as the weird black metal Terminator NXTVCBDG or whatever it was.
  • Reading up on the post-GoT interwebs in all their sobbery, I was reminded of Dragonlance from my youth… and possibly yours.
  • I’m kind of interested in Johnny Depp’s produced adaptation of The Secret World. It doesn’t hurt that the key art looks like TRDL costuming a little bit.

Thats’ all for today. practice your trick muscle-car management until next time…

Ghost in the Tole – 23 Feb 2017

Image

Image
Two awesome posters for GitS. TOLING YOU GUISE…

Meanwhile:

1. Sweet! Some good news finally, on this Inhumans IMAX project: Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus the Mad. link!

2. Fans of Rob Zombie will no doubt be delighted to learn he is doing voice work on GoG2. I mean, because, the alternative would have been presumably a world where Rob Zombie didn’t. link!

3. Here’s a cast photo from Alien: Covenant. You can also watch some long ‘Last Supper’ scene if you wish. I shant and I wont. link!

4. Three Sci-Fi fan cheers for TRAPPIST-1. In our lifetime, such a discovery… link!
Plus, travel posters! Awesome: link!

5. I don’t know why everyone is so hung up on the next X-Men film apparently being another stab at the Dark Phoenix story. Sure, it’s more effective once the character of Jean Grey has actually been around for awhile first, and sure, it was half-assedly attempted in X-Men 3, but come on, it’s the franchise’s signature story. More interesting to me is the nod to Simon Kimberg moving from production to a central role as likely director. Meaning please please please free us from Bryan Singer as I have hoped. I’m prefer Vaughn again, but still. Forward. link!

6. Interesting: Battle Angel Alita has finished principle photography, and it’s been revealed that Michelle Rodriguez plays supporting character Gelda, a cyborg. Why would this have been a secret? Full mo-cap? Or something else? I know very little about the source material (surprising some, I’m sure) so I’m optimistic, just from the potential alone. link!

7. I like these new packagings for these Star Wars figures, which appear to be the Black Series but with cards made to look like the original Kenner blisters, which I love. That poseable Stormptrooper is the LIVING SHIT, but also, I was drawn to C-3PO’s silver leg, as it tugged at my memory but I couldn’t place it. Apparently no one else can agree on it either. Fans argued all sorts of stuff, which got more discombobulated the farther along we got in the production of the films, which retconned the hell out of themselves with the prequels and the EU stuff. I do remember now that his shin looked different, particularly on Tattooine, but it manifested as a reflective, just shinier gold. Anthony Daniels was quoted as saying that it was always silver, designed to make it look like a retrofit, but on tattooine particularly, it was reflecting the sand and the gold next to it. Anyway, fun diversion during a deadline for this guy.
link!

8. Matt Reeves is confirmed for Batman, I guess. OK! link!

Plus:

Image
Yvonne Strahovsky joined Predator?! Now two homina homina doomed soldiers or what have you!

Image
Jamie Chung jumped on board the X-Men series as Blink. Sure, OK, I like her a lot, let’s see her in purple…

Image
I’m two episodes in on Legion. We will be discussing on the Robot-Kraken Podcast soon. Amazing. Also, ALL THE THREES.

Another Bat Time and Another Bat Station – 14 Nov 2016

Jordan Gibson just owned Monday as far as I’m concerned Just a perfectly executed concept.

Meanwhile:

Now we’re hearing that an X-Men reboot would focus on Dark Phoenix. I mean. Just SKIP TO THE END I guess…

Image
Interesting story about how Fox and Marvel traded character (names) for a pair of recent and upcoming films…
via

:::

Image
This of course isn’t the first large scale photorealistic genre sculpture we’ve seen, but man, how many of these will be perched suspiciously in very wealthy nerd hideouts… for untoward attention purposes… admittedly it’s odd that it is less of a likeness of her than many products under the half-a-Yugo-in-1991 price point…

:::

Image
Another amazing Square Enix scuplt…

:::

Image
Christina Hobson has been tapped to write the Harley film. But it’s now officially a ‘women of the DC Universe’ film. I wonder if that will survive the development process. In truth, I do think Harley works better in a group dynamic. But I was hoping for a Harley and Joker on the lam story, tying in other villains and heroes but from their narrative perspective.

This is the stuff of many a sc-fi movie premise. Particularly Star Treks.

That is all. Return to your bunkers!
