I Get It, They All Said – 15 October 2018

So, I’ve been trying to catch up on Iron Fist S02, in advance of Daredevil S03 starting in a few days. I’ve said it before here, and on the pod, but it’s a lot better than S01. Anyway, this news came out right before the weekend: Iron Fist not renewed for S03, if kind, or Iron Fist cancelled, if unkind. It was a strange piece of news: Netflix virtually never cancels projects. They may not continue with new seasons, or hibernate, but they virtually never announce a project’s end. It made me wonder. Iron Fist S01 did not do well, but they felt enough confidence in the character, the actor, and the interconnected series’ as a whole to continue with S02 under new leadership, and to include Rand in Defenders. It seemed odd to cancel it as many people, like me, are still watching it (I hate this binge culture now. I don’t have that time!) in the immediate lead0up to another season of the group. So, I wondered… Netflix has had the development rights to these shows, and the Disney Streaming Service specifically was announced as not to include the Marvel Netflix stuff… but if I’m in Netflix’s position, why spend money on Marvel properties when they have already been spending a ton on all these other original programming projects. Any Marvel property now will be diminishing returns. Familiar eyeballs will tune in, but compare it to whatever comes down the pipe at Disney’s service, and from the looks of things on the Star Wars project, it will look pretty high-budget. That puts the ‘shoot it like a play’ methodology of the Netflix stuff and their limited, constantly recurring set-pieces, into more obvious critical focus. And less familiar eyeballs will look for Marvel stuff right in the Disney app, rather than remember what service happens to have them. So I wonder if they are negotiating handing these projects back to Disney, behind the scenes. If they wanted to kill the projects but keep them out of Disney’s hands, they wouldn’t make announcements, they’d just leave things open-ended. So I wonder: will all of the Marvel Netflix stuff eventually live on on the Disney service after all?

 

  • Here’s a great look at the final version of the Captain Marvel uniform (She of the maybe not 5 films) . There may be differences on film, actually, as this was posted by Andy Park, so it’s the final key art version, but things happen in production. I will say when I fan art this, i’ll be doing away with some of the bits and pieces to streamline it. Still, good reference piece!
  • Sometimes you screw up at work. Then there’s THIS.
  • Elon Musk says he’s interested in making a giant combat robot to solve all of our problems. I mean, he didn’t. He said the word ‘mecha’ and the internet imploded, as happens. The Gundam memes are flying.

  • Favreau posted this, a few days ago. I thought, huh, looks familiar. But couldn’t place where I’d seen that design. As it turns out, it was from the horrible infamous Xmas Special. I barely remember that show, or in fact I may have never even seen it, just seen enough clips and pics… anyway, it jogged my memory because I have the Boba Fett from that special in draw queue. Because colors. Anyway, so they took a nod from that. Pretty cool.
  • The young Alfred no one asked for.
  • Coogler is officially on board, directing a film about a pile of ash. RIIIIGHT
  • Speaking of Daredevil… I’m into the new season, and look forward to it’s release. I’d ALSO like this great deal on a Hell’s Kitchen apartment. Love viral marketing.
  • Best maternity photos ever. And I’ve seen some good ones.
  • Here’s some great retconning by Johnny Depp. No, he’s staggering because he’s drunk, he’s slurring because he’s drunk, and he’s drunk because you mimicked a version of Keith Richards. Let’s not make this a whole thing. Being box office poison on the Harry Potter stuff meant Jack Sparrow stuff would suddenly be in interviews, that was obvious. But let the thing be the thing.
  • There’s a lot to like about the new red and black Spidey suit. The belt is not one of them.
  • Well, we were fucked before, and we’re extra fucked now.
  • I don’t think these were used. But if they were, not thrilled, over here.
  • Here’s a fun video of Haunted Mansion with some young, familiar faces, and a lot of blurry business.
  • I’m out of the reasonable realm of having these around, with two impressionable younglings, but I love it. LOVVVVVVE it.
  • So into tabletop gaming using post-apocalyptic scratch-built Hot Wheels. Love it. Love it. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it.
  • Yes. Inside a Tauntaun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, I can’t believe Venom has legs. I guess the inverted world we live in right now affects everything? Maybe?

 

*The title of this post refers to the strange predilection of the Iron Fist S02 scripts to have character say ‘I get it…’ ALL THE TIME, and frequently, you know, not get it.

What Star Wars Needs is a Memorable Villain, They All Said – Robots Root 6 Aug 2018

The rumor mill speculates that Richard E. Grant will play Thrawn in Star Wars Ep. VIII. I don’t have any emotional attachment to the character, not having read the books, and I always thought his blue skin looked weird with the white uniform… but I DO like the idea of bringing in a new big bad. It’s hard to imagine they’d waste such a big Extended Universe character on one film… and in the timeline of stories they talk about doing, I don’t see how they’d use him elsewhere. It made me think, awhile back, when Rian Johnson got that undefined new trilogy to play with, that Thrawn might be the big bad in THOSE films…

 

Meanwhile, in space, this could be happening:

  • Claire (Rosario Dawson) brings some real world logic and empathy to the Netflix Marvel series of series. That said, she’s not in IF 2.0, and I assumed it was because she’s got a career and other commitments happening… I read in a few places people are relieved because it’s irrational that she’s in all these stories but has no powers. WHAT? One of the strong points about all of the Marvel Netflix projects is the way the NPC’s, or regular folks, are written into the story in a meaningful way. It’s one of the things I love about them. It’s not just powered people tussling, but the interaction between them and the people they affect. SO while I DO often think ‘why aren’t they calling each other for help’ or ‘why isn’t claire calling in reinforcements’ I do like that they’ve tried to explain it in terms of unavailability or personal issues or ‘this is my fight’ type of stuff. We don’t need five different Defenders arcs, though admittedly those team-ups are what make some of the Marvel MCU films so interesting. But as is often noted about all of the TV projects… this isn’t the MCU.
  • Bryan Callen and Marc Maron are the latest to join this surreal Joker film… what is even.
  • Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson seem to have charisma together, so that’s a thing.
  • In a moment of pure marketing genius, Turkish Airlines have offered a safety video tie in to Lego Movie 2. This sure beats watching Wonder Woman not stow her shield and sword FFS on that other attempt.
  • Everyone’s still rah-rahing about Linda Hamilton in the Aviators, but I’m all about those lines on Mackenzie Davis’ skin. Did we already officially know she was a new Terminator model, or a Terminator period? I LOVE that look.
  • I understand why they deleted this scene between Gamora and Thanos in the final cut, as it drags and is tonally off from what we saw of him the rest of the film more concisely. However it IS cool to see Gamora dressed as his champion. CHAMPION BRAIDS.
  • This too can be yours, for a mere $1200. I’m so in. But not really in. But wish i was in.
  • Here’s a brilliant study on how Bottle Rocket DID set the stage for Wes Anderson’s later more obvious moves. I’m among the Andersonites that saw it, even as a raw version, of being consistent with his catalog, but I’ve heard the argument several times that it wasn’t. I would argue it is closer to his later vision than Blood Simple was for the Coen Brothers to their’s.

Arm Reloading Since 2018 – Robot’s Root 31 July 2018

All anyone’s talking about (other than that it’s really good and will make a lot of money) regarding Mission: Impossible – Fallout is Henry Cavill’s arm reloads. That was my favorite part of the trailer as well. It cracks me up so much.

 

Meanwhile:

 

  • Tessa Thompson can simply do no wrong. I mean, when I can’t even SEE Chris Hemsworth?  That’s a thing.
  • It’s pretty impressive that the cast of GOG issued a support letter re: James Gunn. That’s a lot of political risk for them, and I like that they committed to it. They avoided outright calling out Disney on the hypocrisy, but the letter was well constructed to be positive rather than reactive.
  • You don’t often see a creator get the rights back to the work made from their original material. Controversies on all sides, but still…
  • I defer further comment until I actually finish Altered Carbon S01, but Anthony Mackie is on board as the lead for S02 and I do like him muchly.

  • Well, uh, I guess that counts.
  • Carrie Fisher’s unused footage being in SW Ep VIII is both kind of a nice touch AND indicative that whatever her original arc was to be, it will still nonetheless be radically reduced, and I think that makes sense, all things considering. I was also intrigued that Gwendoline Christie’s name wasn’t included in the returning cast… I smell a maguffin.
  • This is why the Interwebs were invented.
  • This does not look good, but is trying to be indie-weird-heisty, and this does not look good, and is trying to be edgy-die hardie-actioney. Maybe they should have- wait, I have it. Switch CASTS!
  • Look, I’m in, but also, I just LOVE checking out where all the Jonah Hill went. He’s an example to me of a person whose weight loss fundamentally changed how they look. He doesn’t look like a thinner version of himself, like with John Goodman. He looks like his own cousin or something.
  • From Lung: a horde of Thor related tweets that are glorious.
  • OH MG GOD I NEED ALL OF THESE WHY . THE . FACE!
  • This is NOT what I was expecting for Pedro Pascal’s look in WW 1984…
  • More Venom, less enthusiasms. I already had maybe 3% enthusiasms. And this accent? “Ohh, I havah paower saite.” what is even. And look, Phase 1 era fighting your clone. I just. I mean, even putting Michelle Williams in a plaid miniskirt feels desperate.

 

He Even Paid for That Suit – Robots Root 30 July 2018

As rumors of the Batman solo film increasingly draw comparisons to Batman: Year One, I grow more and more cautiously optimistic. I want facking dark gray under-armor, combat boots, hand stitched cowl and cape, an army/navy surplus belt, flash bangs and sharpened steel knives. And I want failure. [Art by the One Dave Johnson ]

 

Meanwhile…

  • Honest Trailer for Ready Player One is honest.
  • Captain America’s proposed cameo in Ant-Man and Wasp would have actually been pretty good. Though I agree with the choice to exclude it. Not necessary.
  • The logic here is pretty screwy. Them lost all sense.
  • Reading the creators wax optimistic about future Venom films, I’m reminded of a logical but problematic detail: in reports from SDCC it was noted that Venom doesn’t have the chest symbol. Makes sense, in an origin without a Spider-Man connection. Yet, without that white spider across the chest, this will just be a big rubbery black blob with teeth and googly eyes.
  • The latest on again, off again rumors are that New Mutants shit the bed and X-Men is a hot mess, and that both may be scrapped by Disney. Its both premature and hazy, and I don’t yet take them seriously.
  • Henry Cavill says he’d be down to play Bond, because of course he’s a tall white European and he wears a suit well. I’m OK with it.
  • Against all odds, Deadwood as a film has finally been greenlit, and actor schedules have been sorted out.
  • Stoned Alone. This is like that grocery store animated film from a few years ago. The concept is more stoney than the end result could even be, and I love them both for being things.

  • Iron Fist’s twitter has been posting episode names as battered storefront signage. .I’m really in love with this marketing concept.
  • In an interesting development, AMC and their legal representation have vetted Chris Hardwick and are bringing him back. They don’t outright state the claims against him by his ex are unfounded, but they are taking the risk of reinstating him. This not being the certain political world where gross people are doing gross things with impunity, but rather the world of sensitive entertainment business where creators have been sacked in recent days for old tweets.
  • I’m delighted that Denis Villeneuve is planning to shoot Dune as only the first half of the first book, rather than cramming everything in. More room to breathe and build the world with some elegance.
  • The moment the actress was cast, I knew there’d be a racist dust-up over Starfire. After the trailer, it was certain. Some pitiful trolls are on the attack, surprising precisely no one.

  • August 24th, AMC… let’s not let this one slip past us, pals.

 

Finally, I know it’s an important film in culture, etc etc but I’m just so in love with this shot of Tessa Thompson.

Cackling in 3 Frames Per Second – Robots Root 30 June 2018

Now you too can have a laughing Prince Adam figure of your very own. Memetic!

I’m done with my Spring conventions, and now in Washington on a short vacation with the younglings. Here’s a blast of interesting somethings over the last few weeks!

  • Wonder Woman + George Orwell? You decide!
  • Everyone’s talking about that Black Manta helmet, but I’m all about Orm’s sweet hairstyle.
  • Apologists and recontextualists aside, these comments nauseated me.
  • If nothing else, Red Notice sure has an eye-catching cast.
  • You too can build an Alexa-enabled L3-37. But… should you?
  • Preacher 3 is only a week away!
  • Incredibles 2 was a hoot… and the weekend box office sure seems to indicate people realized it. It does look decidedly familiar… by design.
  • Here’s a great video of Andy Serkis discussing mocap’s evolution
  • Here’s an interesting article positing that Shazam should be the path to the future of the DCEU.
  • As someone who works in a small, pressure-cooker environment without HR and with unconventional, lets say, communication from time to time, I’ve been following the discussion on workplace abuse in Hollywood (a mechanism for talking about it not in Hollywood, of course. ie. the real world)… the sexual abuse and sexual politics are very obviously evil, but the verbal abuse has been something that creators in the entertainment industry have been forgiven for (as long as they are ‘successful’ and ‘auteurs’, my emphasis… on the one hand, some people need to be more prepared and clear about the hostile environments they are getting into, and on the other hand, people should be respectful, or there should be consequences. Interesting debate.
  • Everyone’s laughing about how they isolated Iron Fist knowingly. I just loved that they included Colleen Wing!

 

More to come!

 

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.

Dont Wear White After the Post-Apocalypse – Robots Root 5 Oct 2017

You know what these shots of Brolin as Cable doing some sort of shopping cart business remind me of? Took me all morning, but I figured it out:

My TRDL Commission for a character called Alpha. I’m dying…

Meanwhile, That Robot’s Root:

  • Hm. This throws everything we agreed upon on the podcast about Gal Gadot’s pronunciation out the window. Or through the wall.
  • BAD TIMING. So Punisher screenings have been postponed at NYCC and other venues for obvious reasons. Reminds me of how the theater shooting cored Dark Knight’s box office, but of course, in this case, the content of the movie is a bit close to home.
  • I don’t know if I like or dislike these ALL IN posters, but at least we’re seeing JL people running or moving without looking like a bad paste-up splash page… which the previous ones actually were. I just want all the Batmans.
  • I don’t have a problem with Iron Fist being in Luke Cage. This is a good thing. Heroes for Hire, but with Cage owning Rand all the time.
  • Here’s those Pacific Rim Uprising mechas that look too streamlined. MEH! Bring me more smokestacks covered in heat sinks!
  • I’m dying. “Do you enjoy the sensation of petting a cat or dog, but hate the unconditional love and the fact that they have heads and limbs?”
  • I follow HardTimes, an Onion-style site but for punk rock etc etc and sometimes random tertiary posts crack me up even more than the music stuff, like this one, which was ACCURATE.

 

Finally, as I head out to an extremely, EXTREMELY late showing of Blade Runner 2049, I thought I’d post this nice roundup on the production of the original, courtesy of Vanity Fair. I’ve got books on the topic at home, being a supernerdfan, but this was a good encapsulation.

Blame it on SKRULLS! – Robots Root 25 July 2017

It’s gonna be raining SKRULLS IN PLAID soon enough, cousins! Onward… into Robot’s Root:

  • Lots of #SDCC material we haven’t talked about or did so piecemeal, so here:
    • Gifted trailer (fox) – not optimistic, though I do generally prefer Jamie Chung over no Jamie Chung. As much as I love references between films or between TV and film series that show connections in the story, it’s fraught with challenge and often doesn’t work (or goes in one direction only, awkwardly)… so I give them a little bit of credit for making Gifted it’s own continuity, and not sharing with Legion or the films. That said, it’s fraught with mainstream viewer confusion and seems like a matter of time before James Marsten or whomever will show up on one of these shows anyway… that’s a bad example I guess, being a recast victim.
    • New Defenders trailer, with slightly more cohesion. I’m 100% on board. Doubly so, now that they’ve announced a new showrunner for Iron Fist S-2. Granted it’s the guy who brought you the Elektra film, but still. Also, Misty Knight added, so there’s that.
    • Stranger Things S02 trailer completely owned my attention.
    • Talk about coming from behind, so to speak: Star Trek Discovery is looking sharp!
    • Westworld S02 trailer here, which I didn’t watch, because please please please blackout.
    • I saw Spidey with my man Lung the other night, and during the same tired Justice League trailer he turned to me, fueled by some tequila, to be fair, and announced the JL film was going to “kick ass”… I have been far less optimistic just from the monotony of the early trailer images of the dark mucky muck fighting environment and the blah generic dark mucky muck Parademons, and my personal grievance, the horribly written ‘You… me… the others…’ followed by WW asking again about ‘the others’… UGH UGH UUUUUUGH. That said, new trailer brings the hope back, doesn’t it? Plus, news of Flash now being a Flashpoint storyline is encouraging too. I love multiverse stuff. Speaking of, Steppenwolf in the new trailer says a few choice things: he mentions Lanterns… and he says THIS world will fall, like all the others. More multiverse business!

    • And the Alex Ross references are DOOOPE. Meanwhile, the buzz on the supernet is about how Henry Caville’s MI6 mustache is causing much digital post-editing of reshoot material on Whedon’s JL-fixery. Setting aside the fact that this sort of thing isn’t as uncommon as people seem to think, I was amused by a tweet by McQuarry, hard at work on MI6, that basically said that if they had to add a fake mustache to Cavill on MI6 it would need to be held on by staples. Funny, not just because it sidesteps that they could be adding it digitally just as easily (but shouldn’t as it’s their time and contract now, for Cavill, not JL) but because it’s a clever way of reminding people that the MI films are all action and will be fun and kinetic. Good move!
    • So Captain Marvel will be set in the 90s and feature the Skrulls. I’m really, REALLY, enthused about this. Different time period, use of my favorite Marvel alien race, just ripe for drama and betrayal, etc… all the interesting things we get design-wise by going early 90s… I mean, I’m thrilled. Now, how to shunt Carol to the modern era afterward? We aren’t going to be burying Brie Larson’s radiance in makeup… already did that, and understandably so, with Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.  As for how Marvel is playing in the FF toolbox, remember, all sorts of things have been cooking behind the scenes between Disney Marvel and Sony Marvel and Fox Marvel… here’s concept art, which is quite reassuring, costume-wise.
    • Probably the most exciting material that has been officially released from the show (ie. not Infinity War mumble grumble) is the new Ragnarok trailer, which causes aneurysms of yeee. The idea that a lot of this film was improvised (and not in an IM1 way) despite Disney scrutiny makes me very happy. That’s what you hire Waititi for. I’m looking at YOU, Star Wars Disney.
  • I do like the cinematic Spidey suit a LOT. I’m much less enthused about what people are calling the Iron Spidey but is really just Limited Edition Gold Foil Variant Spidey from Infinity Wars. I wish we were getting the ‘Superior Spider-Man’ concept suit instead.
  • Here’s some generally underwhelming Ant-Man and Wasp poster art. I’m surprised. Meanwhile, Michelle Pfeiffer joins as Janet Van Dyne? Interesting pairing with Michael Douglas. Bring on the de-aging FX!
  • I’m really interested in Ed Piskor’s experimental X-Men project. First, his Hip-Hop Family Tree series was and is amazing. But beyond that, I guess I have a personal interest in the ‘grand summary’ concept of distilling a metric ton of continuity into a single story. I’ve loved mini-series or other projects that poke into different periods in ‘original continuity’ Marvel* and on a highly specific, and self-promoting note, it’s essentially what I’m doing with the TRDL Universe: there’s a huge amount of content in the timeline for this world, described in the sourcebooks… I could never illustrate it all… but I CAN illustrate snapshots in the timeline, weaving a common thread between them, which is what we have cooking. Anyway, I’m stoked on the project.

 

*I say ‘original continuity’ because all the callbacks seem to be written by writers like me who are my age and have been reading since I have, and are going back to the pre-retcon era of Marvel, ie. prior to the relaunches and rewrites and universe redefinitioning that Marvel succumbed to, the way DC had since the 80s… to me it’s everything from the 60s to the very early 90s, and then more or less into the early 2000s, after which Marvel continuity ate itself, orobouros style. Admittedly, we’ve played fast and loose with continuity from the golden age… but I mean, I don’t even know how time WORKS at Marvel anymore. Even beyond the multiversing and universe rewriting and dimensional folding and all this, and even beyond largely ignoring the lack of aging of many characters and the fix of truncating time so that events in the 60s happened ‘a few years ago’ in current continuity, etc I bristle when we see a retelling of early stories, set in continuity, where people are using cell phones and modern affectations… I get that it’s a paradox, that we can’t let the X-Men be birthed in the 60s while at the same time not have the original X-Men be in their late 60s/early 70s… but I guess for me, that’s what I WANT to see. Aged heroes, young next gen people picking up the costumes, etc. One of the most interesting things in Marvel continuity has been when Steve Rogers would lose the serum and be suddenly a senior (with abs)… and recently, with Old Man Logan shunted into main continuity, same deal. But comics are written, traditionally for tweens and teens in a three year looping window of attention span, and I get that. Anyway.

ROBOT KRAKEN is a MONTHLY podcast by two indie artists, Kristopher McClanahan of Deeply Dapper and Thom Chiaramonte of the Third Rail Design Lab. We get together and talk about comics, movies, working the table at comic cons, life in this nerdy wonderland, and whatever mumblings from the deep we come across. You can find out more about us, contact us or follow along our journey at robot-kraken.com iTunes – http://bit.ly/RoboApple Stream & Download – http://bit.ly/RoboDapper

We are also on PATREON NOW! Help us find time to make more content, actually edit these episodes, get some goodies and more! GO HERE TO HELP SUPPORT THE SHOWS!
