Just Wingin It – Robots Root 25 July 2018

OHAI DAUGHTERS OF DRAGONS

Meanwhile, this:

  • I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that Williamson is developing ANOTHER show for Hulu starring the ex husband of the star of his current show. But anyway. Space. I’m in.
  • I’m cool with Sivana not being a mad scientist, which was much more proto-Superman.
  • Dungeons and Doggos. You’re welcome.
  • The one GoT spin-off to make the cut to series is set in the very distant past of this continuity, which on the one hand makes the most sense (otherwise why not just keep telling THIS story; I don’t know how we’re supposed to end with a few final long eps, big winter and zombie army and death everywhere, whith any sort of closure at this point) but it DOES run the risk of feeling more Lord of the Ringsish/generic fantasy. We’ll see.
  • Expanse S04 I cannot wait I cannot FACKING WAIT.
  • I may have posted this before, but it’s a great article exploring how Always Sunny has become more and more progressive even as it remains raucous and offensive. I personally think these ‘progressive’ moves in the story are to piss off just another subset of viewers, which i love.
  • My first time seeing the SDCC poster for Godzilla. Pretty dope, and brand aware. Kris was stunned on the podcast the other night that Ghidora is not my favorite monster, for reasons.
  • I feel like this supposed possible casting interest for Batwoman is a bit on the nose. As I’ve babbled on the podcast several time: it must be Jane Levy.

  • I’m toling you. Well, Batgirl anyway. Batwoman, whose to say.
  • Oh come ON. I get the legacy behind this easily most-famous-giant-robot-anime but it’s just Star Wars, u guise. Not rocket science.
  • We spoke a bit about the James Gunn firing controversy on the podcast we recorded the other day, and referenced Bobcat Goldthwait. Here’s that story. Then yesterday, Dan Harmon is off twitter due to dredged up comedy material he wrote years ago.
  • Apparently Ryan Reynolds originally hoped to play Wally West. SUCH a better fit than Green Toleyou.
  • And now Frances Conroy is on board Joker?
  • yes please.

Thats all for today . Off to go measure my groffice for that new carpet…

Thats Not Silly String – Robots Root 22 May 2018

The new West Coast Avengers is everything I want in a supers comic today. I’m delighted. Also one of my favorite artists currently working, and a great writer. Optimistic!

Also, for science:

  • Well thats great. They can RUN now, jump through holes in obstructions, and get back on their feet. Its cute that they aren’t admitting these are all prototype work for future cybersoldiers, and oh, by the way, I’ll be in my quite penetrable bunker.
  • I first heard the term “tank paratrooper” in the gag final punchline of a first season Ren & Stimpy. It’s even better in the real…
  • Here’s a cool video about the costume design on Shape of Water and others.
  • I had enough trouble as a kid dealing with the New Gods (as much as I adore Kirby now) so Eternals were WAY off the back for me. But hey, good luck! I’m on board if they do it right…
  • I don’t know if its because I’m traveling, or because I dislike the excessive abuse of the service animals system, but this struck me funny. I liked it.
  • Lung recently informed me he wasn’t a fan of Morena Baccarin because she has, to him, mean eyes. I’m usually focused on her lips and other bits, but anyway, that’s all neither here nor there because I’d be fully supportive of her playing Catwoman in that Gotham City Sirens film…
  • Here’s Bandai’s armored cats series, which, had they been available when I was in Japan, I’d have bought out like the whole supply.
  • Everyone needs a brutalist garden gnome, I says.
  • Tiny Superman. I’m jealous I didn’t think of it.
  • First, the new She-Ra is teased and it looks a bit stylized, so people got grumpy. Then the new Thundercats was revealed and it’s chibi so the all-srs fans freaked out. I can’t believe it. I mean, srsly. It looks great. CALM down. I actually enjoyed that behind-the-scenes featurette. Not the topknot tho.
  • best news of my day, tho? BEST news? Amazon picked up The Expanse. FFS that’s a relief u guise.
  • Courtesy of Lung, this custom operable Lego Tron Light Cycle display is dope. My favorite part is the little slab of light behind the cycle.

Finally, I leave you with the trailer to the Happytime Murders, which is proving to be as batshit crazy as I’d hoped!

Get this Man a Facet Tool – Robots Root 11 May 2018

Disappointed at the lack of attribution, but this is my current desktop, and I used it in our latest Robot-Kraken Podcast. So good.

  • Looking forward to American Animals, as one does.
  • I’m 100% on board with whatever regarding Birds of Prey, honestly.
  • Thinking about the future of the franchise, what ‘big event’ could replace Avengers movies? I think this is a maguffin, because the narrative had bled into other films already, such as the last two most amazing Captain America films. I was thinking about this last night. Maybe ‘Secret Wars’? Not the stitched-together battle planet, but rather the idea that the heroes and villains would be shunted into an environment forcing them to organize and fight their way out. I can see this fusing concepts from the original Secret Wars, Champions, and frankly, a good dose of what we got from Thunderbolts and Exiles: versions of characters pulled from the multiverse. Makes sense to this guy!
  • This is HIGH TREASON.
  • Donald Glover got wonderfully weird on SNL. But this novelization of the backstory of Lando is even weirder.
  • Captain Marvel already has a very intriguing cast… but they just added Annette Bening, and I’m even more intrigued.
  • Look: I’m horrified by the project, but I LOOOOVE her honesty. Legit.
  • Ron Howard + Arrested Development + Star Wars. Gold! Marketing at its best.
  • Listen, I have too much stuff, and I’m trying to get less stuff. But I’m really having trouble resisting this.
  • TAKE MY MONEY (that I don’t have)
  • I haven’t finished Clone Wars and haven’t started Rebels (kids too young) but this is very interesting to me, stylistically.
  • Everything about this. EVERYTHING. Thanks to C Ferrren for finding it…
  • Jon Favreau’s new SW series will take place during the first years of peace in the New Republic. Interesting territory for the show, I think.
  • While I understand WHY Syfy is dropping the Expanse (bad deal they made) I will just say that this better get picked up by Netflix, fast.
  • Here’s that teaser for Predator that came out yesterday. Optimism abounds, more on Kris’ side than mine. But still, love the cast. Here’s a snap of the current Predator design, in all of it’s sizzlechest, tall headed glory.
  • All the behind the scenes business is done, and Rick and Morty will be back for… 70 EPISODES… FFS that’s good news.
  • 355 is an all-female spy thriller, which is 100% better news than whatever was happening the day before it was revealed to be happening. The cast.
  • LEGO car building factory awesomeness…

And with that, a reminder to listen to our latest episode of Robot-Kraken, and in general, you know, fear not and be just…

It Doesnt Look Like Anything To Me – Robots Root 28 February 2018

So, Joss Whedon is out on the Batgirl project… and like Justice League, the reasons stated vs. the reasons behind the reasons, are cause for some speculation. What I find MORE intriguing, however, is the flood of capable, interesting female writers and directors doing open offers to make this project what it actually wants to be… and how DC/WB is  tone-deaf about it. The image above is mine, by the way. Thank you, thank you. Whedon’s original non-script was apparently to be based on a story from the late 60s, the quintessential pre-spine-shattering Batgirl… I would be interested in something a little more like the current comics, frankly.

[Image available as a sweet print by yours truly here.]

Meanwhile, in space:

  • I’m super into Anon, a new film from the director of Gattaca. I love the post-Soviet style and overlays of data. Amanda Seyfried is also killer (so to speak) as a brunette. This could be terrible. But I choose to believe.

 

  • Polar, an adaptation from a comic from Dark Horse, has been greenlit for Netflix. Spoiler alert: it appears to be the same plot as John Wick 3 will likely be, just with Mads Mikkelsen.
  • Francis Lawrence continues to talk up development on a BSG feature film nodding to both TV series (or both major ones) but going in a more ‘current’ direction… which I take to mean instead of apeing New Hope, it’ll ape whatever’s popular next year. HAR!
  • I appreciated how low-rez R2-D2’s Leia hologram was in Last Jedi, and it did appear to be the original one from New Hope, but I had no idea it was actually rendered more degraded for a 30 years later vibe. I thought it was just the old tech-in-star wars effect from the original film plus the meta old-tech-in modern-film disconnect… kind of meta meta.
  • I see a lot of great cosplays at the shows I do, but man, throw a pro photographer or two at them, and it’s even more impressive
  • Latest in video game interest from the guy who buys them but has no time to play them… Burnout Remastered is coming. LOOOOVE them Burnout games.
  • Which is better: bouquets of donuts, or Pennywise style donut delivery? Why choose!
  • PORG CAKE!
  • Some interesting interview material about Duncan Jones’ Mute, and how it morphed into a sci-fi film from its original noir underpinnings. I wish it was getting better reviews, but I’m still hot to see it.
  • I admit, I’m surprised: test screenings for Aquaman have rated very well, apparently featuring accomplished action sequences. Of course, almost all of these bug supers films have tested well early on because of the demographic for the pre-screening crowd. Justice League and BVS both tested extremely well, as did Age of Ultron.
  • Expanse S03 trailer is finally up, showing little, but readers have a good sense of the story. It’s a doozy.
  • Never enough Yondu
  • this was disturbing. Not surprising, but great to hear he was able to get help in that critical window, which is not common.
  • Did I talk about Outsider already? If so, disregard or nod in affirmation. If not, it’s a Netflix project involving Jared Leto playing a pilot in the 50s trapped in Japan and entering a Yakuza phase. For fun and profit! Looks amazing, to me.
  • Gemma Chan has been cast in the Captain Marvel film as the Kree spy Minn-Erva (hopefully with a name change somewhere down the line because COME ON)
  • First look at Shazam/Captain Marvel’s costume here. Looks very golden age.
  • Not too often that reshoots involve inserting an entirely new character
  • A heavily unsubstantiated rumor is that Winder Woman 2’s villain will be the Cheetah, played by… Emma Stone. Take that as you will. Where are the photomanips?!
  • The trailer for Wreck-It Ralph 2 trailer finally launched. Looks great of course… I admit I wish they weren’t using real app companies… Emoji ruined that forever.
  • Terry Goodkind is a dick.

 

Bonus: this video game to brief comic adaptation of Peggy Carter as Captain America reminds me of something…

 

Not the same, but close! And a good seller for me at shows, too…available here, since apparently today I’m just hawkin’ wares…

 

Expanse S03 Updates – Robots Root

 

SPOILERS for Expanse:

Having just finished the latest Expanse Novel, Persepolis Rising, I’m hot under the collar for Expanse S03 to be released later this year on the SyFy channel. The first two seasons did an excellent job of resolving elements of the early novels, and I can’t wait to see how they respond to the significantly more dynamic events in the later ones. Some casting updates so far:

Anna Hopkins – I’m guessing as Monica, the earther journalist…

Nadine Nicole – strong guess this is Clarissa Mao… though my feeling is they could have just reused  as the two sisters are supposed to look so much alike the newsfeeds confused them. German and Filipino descent.

Faivre is of Thai descent, raised in France. So-so similarity in appearance.

Elizabeth Mitchell is on board and I’m guessing it’s Anna, the minister aboard the Behemoth/Nauvoo

Finally, the most interesting, David Strathairn… hm. Ashford, perhaps?

 

Moving on to some root for the people:

  • Hannah Simone has been cast in a remake I’m finally interested in: Real American Hero, where the main character is both female and of color. Excellent. Also, she’s rad.
  • Tim Miller and Brian Michael Bendis are apparently collaborating on a Kitty Pryde solo film which may, as per the project code name, reference the infamous Kitty solo issue of Uncanny X-Men, set in a Christmas + Alien setting. I’m intrigued that BMB can do this while under contract with DC now…
  • This may seem like a reactionary article, but it was noted in an interview that a Han Solo project was underway under Lucas prior to the Lucasfilm sale… most pushback on these side projects is predicated on the idea that Disney is strip-mining Lucas’ legacy. Doesn’t make it good or bad, just a thing that was happening before the thing that is happening.
  • Again, they LEARN NOTHING while allowing these bots to LEARN EVERYTHING.
  • BRB
  • Sad to read Johann Johannsson passed away recently. His soundtrack work, particularly for Arrival, was excellent and a nearly-daily listen for me.
  • All the reasons David Banner flipped out in the Hulk series. They’re good. “Wandering around inside a carnival funhouse, only to have someone turn on the machinery so that David is somehow caught in a rolling tumbler and flipped over a few times and then thrown down a convenient slide” is just one of them…
  • I want Batman NINJA now, pls.
  • Interesting film adaptation of The Kitchen from Vertigo is in the works.
  • This is pushing all my buttons: A Cobra Rattler converted to a viable R/C!
  • This was a thing. Unbelievable. I want to see this in a Hellboy film or something.
  • How The Last Jedi should have ended. Waited for this!
  • What’s this? Obi Wan films filming in Belfast? Hmmmm?
  • Paul Inglis is joining Star Wars IX… this was the awesome art director for Blade Runner.

Don’t know why this exists, but it does, apparently. Makes a great Valentines Gift…

Thats Just Lazy Writing – Robots Root 9 Feb 2018

Deadpool 2’s new trailer is pretty much spot on what you’d expect, and it works perfectly. Favorite detail: Chunk’s shirt from Goonies! I love it.

  • In Movies that Aren’t Black Widow News: Milla Jovovich has replaced Olivia Munn in Hummingbird. I think she’ll do a fine job but I was looking forward to Munn, who, for all the other obvious reasons i’d be on board about it, hasn’t had a series role like this to date and I was interested in seeing how she’d work.
  • The magical world of what Netflix buys and for what reason continues to intrigue me: for three different reports I’ve read, it appears Abrams and crew new the whole ‘slap Cloverfield references on a sci fi film’ experiment was collapsing, so they sold the project to Netflix for $50M, putting them in the green, as it exceeded their production budget and more importantly allowed them to sidestep the quagmire of marketing costs. Netflix paid a huge sum (though half of the total for Bright) even though they fully understood what they were getting. To say they bought it for post-Super Bowl buzz alone seems almost cynical to write, but that’s the space Netflix is operating in, with the original content streaming wars. We used to ooh and ahh and tssk  the outrageous prices for Super Bowl ad time, but that’s an incredible sum just to convince the 5 remaining non-Netflix subscribers to join, and the remaining 99.9999999% of the civilized world to stay on the service. Which is not to say I won’t watch the film (I will) and BTW, Robot-Kraken Podcast guest host Blake ‘Begin Again’ Simmons implored me to watch Bright, saying it was actually pretty good. SO! More on both projects in next month’s show, I’m guessing.
  • Drunk History features Nichelle Nichols which is pretty awesome. I’d watch it but something in it tripped the sensors in my current host country, so it’ll have to wait.
  • The most reassuring thing about the details on Harrison Ford’s advisory role on Han Solo is reading that he basically just bullshitted about his experience and what Lucas was always talking about, and then just said, go nuts! Paycheck for light aircraft repair bills… but also, no pushing about the impression or some big speech about looking like a young Harrison Ford, just insights into how Ford felt Solo ticked. Pretty great, actually.
  • Apparently the Venom trailer will be released while I’m flying across the Pacific. Either I’ll land to accolades or scorn. About the trailer, not my arrival. Everyone’s excited.
  • Jessica Jones S02 is imminent, and the full trailer looks great. Tone is consistent, actors remain solid… PLUS the addition of Expanse’s Terry Chen (Prax Meng) in a very different role than we last saw for him. That’s AWESOME.
  • So, not sure, but Titan looks like it might be B-Movie material. However it ALSO reads as a video summary of my entire TRDL Universe situation, more or less, so. There’s that! Accidental marketing.
  • I’m sure you’ve seen this by now, but this fan-made alternate opening for Force Awakens is pretty rad. Not for what it was intended, because the mystery and interest in the setting of Jakku was perfect as-is and didn’t need explaining. But rather, just to see them tow a Star Destroyer carcass to a jumk planet and then dump it. The movie made it feel, without explanations, like it crashed there from an aerial battle… never thought of it as wreckage being cleared from dangerous hyperspace traffic areas or what have you. Star Wars has always played loose with the idea of space junk. It’s only there when serving the plot.
  • Delos Destinations viral is making me HOT HOT HOT!
  • This whole exchange on ‘the mutant cure’ is hilarious.
  • An articulated, jet boot sorta havin, repulsor sorta usin, ultra rad Iron Man cosplay… but doods IT CHARGES HIS IPHONE TOO.

 

Finally, I leave you with this: yawning is contagious.

We Were Wizarded, We Were Worlded – Robots Root 19 June 2017

 

We’re back from Wizard World Sacramento. Soon to embark on a journey to Portland for Heroes & Villains Fanfest/Walkter Stalker this coming weekend. More embarking for Kris than me… well, more journeying anyway: he’s driving back to Idaho now, and will then drive BACK to the west coast for Portland. I’m hopping on Alaska Airlines.

It was an interesting time, Wizard World Sacramento. Some good, some not so good. We recorded a daily post-mortem which will be part of our July Robot-Kraken Podcast, along with discussion about Portland’s show. The bullet points, though, in the meantime:

  • The show was about a third smaller than it was two years ago when we did it last, and apparently it was bigger last year. We aren’t sure what happened. The wrestler guests, and the associated fans of them, were not there, but the smaller carved out section of the venue also suggested that they didn’t have as many tables and exhibitors, and I know customers complained that the guest list for celebrities wasn’t well stocked until pretty short notice. On my end, I didn’t feel that was particularly the case, or that the show wasn’t planned well or promoted. They did make a substantial layout change that put celebrities to the side instead of in the back, which breaks artist alley, as we depend on people coming and going to the photo ops and signings. But otherwise, it wasn’t egregious. WW staff were friendly and responsive, and the noise level from some of the larger events in the space wasn’t overwhelming, even if it was a bit much for my taste (karaoke all day friday, a funk band on Saturday, and Star Wars lounge singing on Sunday (which itself was originally a parody concept, right? Now it’s come around the other side and become a thing)) and though we were placed right behind a huge random State Farm VR exhibit, it wasn’t loud or distracting at all. The event seemed well stocked with food vendors, and people were digging the bottomless adult beverages that were available.
  • There was far less foot traffic than expected. In fact, much of the time guests were sort of wandering down the center of the aisles and not approaching tables. When the guests are plentiful (or if the space is cramped, which is not ideal) the customers tend to hug the tables and check things out. Here, it was like they were just tumbling down an air duct.
  • I had several customers go through the books and seem very interested and then wander off. I had two groups of guests that went to get money or use the restroom and never returned. It’s a risk you take. I could be more aggressive about making a deal before they leave, I guess. I gambled because they wanted to look more and pick additional prints, and ended up taking nothing home. In general, the interest in my table was less than hoped for, but I can’t complain about the good conversations I had, and without fail, those that bought something tended to be enthusiastic about it, which is great. All but one took home multiple items.
  • I had a good time connecting with cosplayers, showing them art of their character, etc. Many came by several times. Some were customers. It was one of the nice things about having a substantial print selection now, as compared to previous years. I could point stuff out on the fly! With my work now taking up three 13 x 19 binders on the table, it spans a hair over a standard 6′ booth, and fits OK in an 8′ booth. I have another 150-200 prints in process, so I may need to consider beginning to show half-scale copies 2 to a page in the binder for some of them. I need to stay to the three binder only I think.
  • I nerded out a bit when I saw Cas Anvar from Expanse at the show. I went over and shook his hand and talked to him for a brief second, but then headed back to my unmanned table. He was pleasant.
  • As with prior trips to Sacramento, the highlight was food. We had a great night at South (fried chicken spot) and had some good pizza as well. Made some new friends too.
  • Listen to the podcast in July for a more in-depth look at these June shows, and a discussion about the future of Wizard World, and our future at that venue as well. I’ll post some photos to Instagram and FB as time permits…

Robot’s Root!

  • The Russo Bros posted a mysterious photo of a mysterious thingie. Between this and Scarjo’s note of like 333 characters in Infinity War, I have to wonder what kind of viral what have yous are we going to be seeing in the few months prior to release… there’s going to be teaser burnout…can you imagine a world where NOTHING about this film was leaked, and no trailers of any plot significance were revealed? I love to imagine such a thing.
  • Kris and I were supposed to see The Mummy this weekend, prepared for low common denominator fun, but didn’t get to it, because fried chicken. BUT, wow. This does NOT sound good.
  • Cue the interwebs, violently googling for ‘pre-CGI boobs’ for the Scooby-Doo film…
  • Oh come ON, Justice League…
  • Who wants Supergirl in the DCCU? I mean, it’s a pretty obvious guess, with no reasonable authenticity, but it’s also a safe one. So whose to say. But anyway, possible!
  • I didn’t get too far into this video, comparing All You Need is Kill (manga) with the Edge of Tomorrow film adaptation, because it just made me want to both seek out the manga, AND rewatch the first film, so I stopped the spoilering against my poor memory. Ha. Spoilers on a movie I already saw, and frankly really liked.
  • Lung and I were discussing this one late last week, but HOW AWESOME… Matchbox cars, sorted!
  • Daniel Day Lewis just retired. That’s interesting. Most actors retire from either running out of castable roles, disappearing into the ether, or the deaths. This was a peculiar final announcement, prior to supporting his now-final film with longtime collaborator PT Anderson.

 

That’s all for today! Keep your eyes peeled on the medias for all the photos to follow…
