His Red Right Hand – 8 October 2018

Well, it sure looks like Hellboy to me. Word on the street, ie. NYCC, is that it’s gooooood stuff.

 

Meanwhile, in space:

  • The teaser for The Boys looks SPOT ON. And I’m really warming to Jack Quaid in lieu of Simon Pegg, though it’s great the latter will step in to play the father of the former.
  • Not sure what to make of Venom’s strong opening weekend. We’ll see what second weekend and international releases look like, because that’s where the morbid curiosity viewers fall away and lack of repeat business and demographic penetration kills these films. Still, stronger than I would have expected.
  • Not even Minka Kelly can save that terrible Dove costume design. It’s comics-canon, sure, but those goggles never made any sense. Still, I mean, for DC fans… who would have thought they’d have Hawk and Dove live action?
  • I don’t know, other than a post Avengers 4 multiverse/time retcon situation, how they’d make Dark Avengers work, but you know I’d be first in line. I loved that series.
  • From the trailers-I-didn’t-watch department, another Daredevil one, this time teasing Bullseye.
  • Good Omens looks fantastic. Very nice casting and good chemistry. I never read the Neil Gaiman series, but I’m into it.
  • Nightflyers continues to interest me.
  • A reminder that Deadly Class is still coming in January. Yes please.
  • Here’s a fanart of a possible look for Black Canary in the Birds of Prey series. I have to tell you, my Black Canary pieces do well at conventions. I think it’s the fishnets.
  • An Expanse S04 teaser for you. YESYESYESYESYESYES

And finally, for a very specific kind of porno: Tom Hardy feeding shelter dogs sausages.

 

MAH MAN – Robots Root 19 July 2018

Look, I’m as surprised as you are. I LIKE the classic colors here. What a (rare) successful update of a golden age look! The other statues show details from the costumes that I quite like as well. More, including the costumes on display at SDCC here.

 

Also, dig the BRINE KING yall.

 

Meanwhile,

  • Comcast, bless their cold, vindictive hearts, caved and dropped out of their bidding for Fox’s assets. They were mostly after the sports division, I think. But still. The idea of Fox and Comcast being connected displeased me. It was like a landfill filled with corpses. Metaphorically.
  • Shile ST4 having a female crewperson added, a female villain, and a female director, are all welcome things… I’m still not sure about dredging up Kirk’s pappy. Unless he were UNDEAD.
  • So stoked on the Umbrella Academy adaptation.
  • Remember when I was joking (so to speak) about how the Robin promo pic looked all grim and gritty, reminding me of the Snyderverse-version Robin uniform shown in B V S… well, it looks like they dove deep.
  • Meanwhile, the details about the Joker film sound pretty predictable to this guy. Fortunately Zazie Beatz will (presumably) be in it so thats a reason to see it anyway.
  • In this skit about Batman trying to join the cool kids Avengers table, I liked how the laughter from the audience dipped a bit once Andy as Robin started shredding the Marvel characters.
  • James Gunn being fired from GOG3 over his well-established early jack-ass tweets, which were previously cleared by Disney… this is beyond strange and frankly smacks of pandering. Especially given this was all known and resolved prior, and had been dredged up by conservatives in response to his political attacks on the Trump Administration. So, more to the point and less about politics, scandal was created to silence a voice. One more casualty of the current hypocrisy.

Finally, I leave you with a successful piece of targeted marketing for this guy:
