Wings and Things – Robots Root 23 October 2018

The more I watch the new Daredevil season (which has been SO GOOD) the more I think about the recent cancellations in the Marvel Netflix series, and how much I want a Daughters of the Dragon series next. Hopefully the above image isn’t too spoilery for those who are still watching Iron Fist, because no one is watching Iron Fist, and nothing matters. HA

This! News from the Quantum Whatever!

  • I’m into the new Netflix series Bodyguard. I love the lead, from the Game of Thrones days of course, and I find the subject matter compelling: the protecting of a politician whom you ideologically oppose, and then being sucked into the intelligence part of it. Hope its good! Coming to a Robot-Kraken pod near you soon enough…
  • This piece on disguise theory in the intelligence community was great. I thought a lot about this sort of thing when working on Finit-e… the ways in which dialog and mannerism can betray a spy.
  • Joining lil’ Predator, here comes lil’ Slimer. Unreal how well this works!
  • A study of high-angles used purposefully in cinematography.
  • This isn’t much of a spoiler, if you have ready any Iron Man comics over the years, but here’s a spoilery Pepper Potts pic from Avengers 4 that I like very much. ENDORSED!
  • While all I want to hear now is a Daughters of the Dragon (above) and a Heroes for Hire and a post-Netflix Jessica Jones and Defenders… rumor has it Nick Fury is getting a series…
  • This is just one of many photos to come out of the WB Elseworlds crossover featuring Green Arrow and Flash switching costumed identities. Everyone is worked up about John Wesley Shipp back in the furry Flash suit from the 90s, but I just cant get over how bad Stephen Amell looks in the Flash suit. It’s not just that it’s not a roided up muscle-built uniform like all the others… it’s design and plating is expressly awkward. He looks ridiculous, in a suit that appears designed to be so. Because that guy is RIPPED, otherwise.
  • Wonder Woman 2 is delayed until 2020… so many possible reasons.
  • Finally, Guillermo Del Toro finally gets to make his Pinocchio… at Netflix. Watch for those eye-palms!
