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.

Jordan Gibson just owned Monday as far as I’m concerned Just a perfectly executed concept.

Interesting story about how Fox and Marvel traded character (names) for a pair of recent and upcoming films…

This of course isn’t the first large scale photorealistic genre sculpture we’ve seen, but man, how many of these will be perched suspiciously in very wealthy nerd hideouts… for untoward attention purposes… admittedly it’s odd that it is less of a likeness of her than many products under the half-a-Yugo-in-1991 price point…

Another amazing Square Enix scuplt…

Christina Hobson has been tapped to write the Harley film. But it’s now officially a ‘women of the DC Universe’ film. I wonder if that will survive the development process. In truth, I do think Harley works better in a group dynamic. But I was hoping for a Harley and Joker on the lam story, tying in other villains and heroes but from their narrative perspective.

This is the stuff of many a sc-fi movie premise. Particularly Star Treks.

That is all. Return to your bunkers!

4. That Took a Few Hours: We live in a wonderful age. Sure, we ave climate change deniers and genocide and systematic rape and plague and so on. But we ALSO have a great cultural moment around Lego… easy interweb access to so much cool Lego stuff, and homegrown kits and builds and such actually making it into (admittedly) nerd feeds. I love it.

6. Negasonic Radness: Looking through these alternate designs for Negasonic was pretty cool. The first batch are closer to something they might cook up for Nicoru from Runaways… but the variations on her look in a proper X-uniform were cool. I really like that they mocked them up based on the actress’ own physique and dressed it up as if they were specific to her. You don’t see that often, with the concept art being done so far in advance. Production art like this is a refreshing change. I also didn’t even realize the costume was largely Josh Middleton’s New Mutants design.
Now I want to see alternates for Ajax and whatserface. They were suitably black leather neutral, because why WOULD they have costumes. But I’d still like to see what could have been…
