Get this Man a Shield – Robots Root 29 Nov 2017

Well, the trailer may not have been the creepy, story-telling ‘preface’ style one I was hoping for, rather than a clip show, but what we got was pretty amazing. Highlights for me include Peter’s Spider-Sense, what I’m sure is Banner wearing the Hulkbuster armor (after Ragnorok, being initially reluctant to hulk out makes sense), a great look at Cap in the beard and blacked out Winter Soldier -era uniform but with Wakandan gloves, and Thanos’ smirks. Also, probably most of all, this Iron Man crumpling smackdown above. Watch it here, for the 33rd time. My first three were on an iphone, so it was nice to size up to 30″ at work. THATSWHATSHESAID

Other root:

  • This whole project confounds and delights me. More holiday T than we deserve. I give it a Kah and a Kiyah!
  • Cross-stiched Ultima screencap? Sure! Reminds me of those mandalas you wipe away when completed.
  • So, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. Meno as the traitorous Kree informant Yon-Rogg. Effing SKRULLS in the first place. Time shunting. And now, Jude Law as Captain Mar-Vell? So good. Plus, if he is truly named that way, more logic gymnastics for the screenwriters to sort out.
  • The Hindenburg Explodes! is one of those fairly high-concept, stony exercises Adult Swim tends to greenlight. It’s a fake pilot by Robb Cordry, featuring many familiar faces and at least three jokes. I sought it out after seeing a soundless GIF of the last three seconds, precisely. I watched the whole thing, though, for science.

  • I loved loved LOVED Blade Runner 2049. I plan to see it, flaws and all, at least 3,333 more times. But this scathing review is my personal favorite review of anything ever. He actually describes birthing replicants as ‘DECANTING.’
  • Guillermo del Toro regrets not helming the Paramount ‘Dark Universe’ films that are now all canceled. So do I, man. Regret that he didn’t, not that I didn’t. I wouldn’t do it.
  • It is suggested that the presumed multi-verse angle of Avengers 4 and the next lifetime of films will be made to happen via quantum realm hopping, a la Ant-Man (and Wasp) which works for me.
  • The CB Cebulski pseudonym controversy is pretty fascinating, coming out at this precise time (him taking over at Marvel, him openly admitting he used a Japanese pseudonym to write comics for Marvel in the 90s, and the culturial appropriation and racism implied though not universally understood) and it’s an interesting zeitgeist for the discussion. At least to me. If he were writing those ninja stories under his real name, would the controversy be as great?
  • This isn’t even from Vivid Video. They already did one.*
  • Finally, LEGO LIGHTCYCLE TAKE MY MONEY that I don’t have.

*I initially mistyped VELMO which seems like something from an adult furry convention.

Albinoraven, who we’ve covered before here on R-K, did this awesome piece of Nice Guys fan art. I love it. I keep coming back to it for extra saucy details. I didn’t even notice the film reel the first three times.

I mentioned this in one of our recent podcasts, but the FF8 cast includes two Game of Toles actors… see if you can spot them. One will melt your underwear, word of warning.

I should mention that the new Voltron cartoon on Netflix is done by the studio that did Airbender, and features voice acting by Tyler Labine and Rhys Darby. I listen to this from the other room and can’t stop getting sucked in because of those two guys.

Here’s concept art, partly-unused and partly-used, from Phil Saunders on the War machine used in Civil War. I love this version.

Tyler Hoechlin, recently in “Everybody Wants Some!!”, has been cast as Superman in Supergirl S02, and that isn’t bad, really. Still doesn’t match my mental image, but not a bad actor selection.

Starwars: Battlefront Bespin Expansion Pack… as Lung squeeeeeed to me via email: AT-ATs on Bespin! I have this game. The pack is part of Season Pass, which I don’t have, but could have, if someone were to come over and stuff.

The new Spidey game preview is getting mixed reviews for the costume, but while I don’t personally need white in my red/blue Spidey gear, it’s a fine design in and of itself. In fact, if the white were black, it would be pretty organically aligned with the Civil War look. It even has those optics. Note the soles of the feet as well. Looks pretty good, mechanics-wise.

Evan Peters says he wants to see a Quicksilver/Deadpool movie. Because, uh, there’s somewhere out there SOME actor who wouldn’t want to hitch to that wagon? Maybe Daniel Day Lewis.

The old Ghostbusters firehouse kit was pretty awesome. But check out this fan-built concept for the new film’s HQ? I love it. The lettering signage…

I would love to SORT THE HELL OUT OF THIS SET.

Donald Glover has apparently joined Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is a nice touch, given his connection to the character in recent efforts. How great would it be if he WAS Miles Morales???

As pretty as she is, as good a cosplay it is in construction and design, here’s an example of where doing cosplay of a comic costume (or game costume in this case) highlights how awkward it looks in real life. The tenuous clipping of this dress thing just looks so awkward. Kind of like some of the attempts at Morrison era Emma Frost with the magic bustier.

JMS’ initially-solid and soon-hotmess series Rising Stars is apparently in development at MGM, because of course it is. I don’t even have a god image for this, because while I liked the story initially, I never liked the art or the designs….

That’s all, kids. Go practice Bespin AT-AT walking…
