They’ll Use Your Bones for Tools – 31 October 2018

In honor of Halloween, here’s a link to the original War of the Worlds broadcast, not to be confused with the two later rebroadcasts within the next 15 years, or any War of the Worlds film or TV projects since. Though, because I am a defender of the movie, I’m using a Tom Cruise War of the Worlds header image because damn, they looked rad. And sounded radder. The rising of the inexplicably buried walker out of a New Jersey intersection is still one of my favorite filmed sequences in the modern era.

 

Meanwhile, within your treat pail, find these thus:

  • In a somewhat surprise reveal, the Game of Thrones prequel will include and likely feature Naomi Watts. Nice catch!
  • In an optimistic bit of rumor, apparently maybe supposedly Marvel is cooking up a Falcon/Bucky miniseries for the streaming service. That’s a hot one. Their dynamic in Winter Soldier was excellent. Now, allow me to opine: I may be just pushing my own wish fulfillment here, but I suspect Bucky will take the Cap mantle, and this show might be used to bridge or flesh out that transition. Meanwhile, Vision might have a major role in the Scarlett Witch series. I mean, he SHOULD. And meanwhile meanwhile, the rumored Hawkeye project might be a series and include Clint training Kate Bishop. If it followed the story beats and tonal style of the early comic issues, that would lead to one very welcome thing: live action PLESS PLESS!
  • In Mediocre Cosplay News, here’s more pics of the awkward Doom Patrol people with the awkward Titans people. How bad does this project need to be when the promo material is this amateur? I’m weirded out. And, related: here’s Henry Cavill’s costume/makeup tests for Witcher, in which he looks like he wore the black Superman suit we never got to see, but added a Halloween Store wig, and then tried to use the SMOLDER ability from Jumanji.
  • I can’t recall any project like this before: the PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 is to include not ONLY that surreal Princess Bride intro, but a sizable amount of different footage and story beats. It’s like multiversal and stuff.
  • I enjoyed reading this fan theory about Nick Fury knowing the future and setting things up based on Dr. Strange going back in time and warning him, though reading this rambling treatise (sort of an Emporer’s Shanghai Noodles of MCU theories) it’s easy to see how if they weren’t VERY careful we’d have another well-fucked time paradox problem.
  • I keep forgetting to post this youtube video on building Daredevil’s billyclubs… I think Lung found it initially… the thing is, it reminds me that on the show I feel like it’s always been standalone clubs, not connected by wire? Am I misremembering? Because I LOVE when they are connected. Though not when Jimmy Palmiotti draws it and the wire is 333′ of silly string. Editorial over.

 

Finally, I leave you with this: Bram Stoker’s original defacement of his library source material when writing Dracula. How awesome.

13 Reasons Meh – Robots Root 29 October 2018

Reading this, I wondered if it’s part of that atrocious event Marvel had in the books not too long ago, that rationalized the creation of Evil Hydra Cap… though, I’ll tell you what, I’d be down with any Avengers 4 storyline that led us to a Hydra Cap and ‘ha tricked you idiots!’ reveal of Chris Evans returning as a villain. Alternate theories include a Stark/Potts daughter that would be negated from existence in the undoing of Thanos’ snappery in A4 (a la Fringe, who will always have done it better), or even Kate Bishop/Hawkeye. Not super into this actress. Consult this fan manip. Ugh.

 

Meanwhile, from the deepest depths:

  • Last time I mentioned Big Kill, and how it looked like a video game. I mean… LOOK at it. It’s amazing.

  • Here are a few pics of that Black Costume Superman again from the WB Elseworlds thing. Other than the eternally weird cape brackets… it looks really good. Possibly the best a Superman costume has looked in forever. I really like it, even if Cavill has trained me to demand muscular bulk in my Supermen…
  • If there’s one thing I love, it’s OPTIONS, buddy.
  • The best part of this ‘private eye weighs in on hollywood private eyes’ video is the Arrested Development component.
  • I’m intrigued by this ScreenX business. Seems like it could really backfire.
  • DAMMIT TOLE That’s what i WANTED.
  • So, imagine if you didn’t know what your property used to be, opened up a wall, and hundreds of thousands of teeth poured out. Nightmare fuel.
  • The petition to put Sauron’s Eye on Salesforce Tower continues. Makes me laugh. It’s appropriate.
  • I saw this three times before I realized it was an Avengers: Infinity War reference. Amazing.
  • Avatar 23 to be released in 2134. Kidding. I mean not really tho.

That’s it, that’s all, that’s all there is
