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…

Less Chimichangas for Tim Miller – 24 October 2016

Image
This one I initially discounted as rumor, but apparently the fallout stems from, aside from a general power struggle, the fact that Tim Miller wanted to do a stylized sequel, and Reynolds wanted to stick with the 4th wall lunacy of the first film.

ITEM: Very sad news this weekend: Steve Dillon passed away at age 54. Quite a shock. Makes me a bit nostalgic, and sad for his family certainly. TICKETS WAITING TO BE PUNCHED ABOVE US ALL, friends.

ITEM: Season 2 of Jessica Jones will include all female directors as a mandate. As a rule, I think that’s pretty awesome.

Image
ITEM: So many things over the weekend! This was announced officially later Friday afternoon, ending months of speculation and years of fantasy casting. People were talking about Glover as a young Han even before there was a Han Solo movie.

Image
ITEM: I tend to ignore ‘science’ features that include a soundtrack and snippets of interviews with a single source. But I thought the ‘microburst’ concept was interesting, if nothing else. Weather pRn!

Image
ITEM: This rad Lego nod to Rogue One is pretty layered in its coolness. It’s a great relief sculpture of K-2SO as it is, but then they framed it like an illustration and built Lego MARKERS. That’s nuts. I love it.

Image
And finally, I made another Lego mech… this time at the lego store in my neighborhood. You can rent time with their bins so I take my son there while my daughter is in ballet sometimes. Concepting/Search/Assembly time, about 35 minutes.

Ragnarockanrolla – 20 May 2016

Image
Well, looks like Jeff Goldblum wasn’t being courted for the Spider-Man villain after all. Apparently he’s been cast as the Grandmaster, one of Marvel’s space-LSD-era’s wierder demigods, and I’ll hazard a guess, the one responsible for a Planet Hulk type situation in Thor: Ragnarok.

Image
Grandmaster, or as I used to call him, Gamesguy

Image
Meanwhile, Tessa Thompson will play Valkyrie, Cate Blanchett is confirmed as Hela, and Karl Urban will be Skurge (oddly without Enchantress?)… Hey, I drew him awhile back, as seen above.

Founding Beastie Boys member from their punk years, John Berry, died this week. Easy to forget the origin of this band, and that before Luscious Jackson, it was even multi-gender…

Lung forwarded to me this excellent Xavier School recruitment video via 80s TV commercial style. Love that computer lab!

Even Lung admits that Powerless looks intriguing. I can’t believe we live in a world [cue trailer guy voice: IN A WORLD…] where we have rival DC and Marvel normal-people-in-supers-world comedies on the fall schedule. I was surprised at the cast that they put together here. Pretty impressive!

In an interview about his acclaimed new show Lady Dynamite, Hurwitz confrmed everyone’s on board for an AD Season 5… but more interesting to me at this juncture: they recut Season 4 as a 22 episode traditional season of AD with the cast and scenes interwoven and the narration redone. That sounds exciting…

This is easily the most awesome thing ever to appear on the interwebs. Seth Rogan sweded the Preacher trailer.

When it was announced earlier this week that Supergirl was moving to the CW, many fans began to anticipate the crossover potential. CW is wasting no time, teasing a mega crossover in December with characters from Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Toles of Tomorrow (itself an ongoing crossover of sorts, I guess)…

Ha, love this idea: Chris McQuarrie posited that he’d do a SW spin-off if he got Michael B Jordan and Lando as the subject. I’d be down.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Michael Keaton is not only back in the running for the Vulture, but in final negotiations… I’m pleased with this possibility. Even if Keaton playing the Vulture is pretty on the nose. Or on the beak.

This Ant-Man figure comes with a massive ant, which is DOPE

However, this Sadfleck Batman glider toy is sad.
