Them Krakens be Robots – 24 April 2017

I was at the Monterey bay Aquarium with the kids last week, and was surprised to discover some Robot Kraken action!



I bring you: Robot’s Root, 24 April 2017

  • This one floored me. Three days later, I can’t wrap my head completely around it. Apparently, setting aside all the rounds of auditioning that landed Chris Pratt the role of Star-Lord.. the consistent second choice? Always Sunny’s Glenn Howerton. WHUT.
  • Shots from Defenders filming, at least so far, confirm DD is continuing with the muddy Ultimates style mostly black look. I keep hoping he’ll just suddenly show up in the same armor but the color of arterial spray.

  • Every time I look at the Thor: Ragnatole trailer, I’m reminded of that old Incredible Hulk telefilm series I loves as a kid. I was super into the cheesy, brown leather and fur Thor. So much so that in our Marvel RPG games I made him that way for science. But not cheesy. I mean, sort of cheesy. Lots of ‘I see thee NAY!’ business. But not four -color.

Also, that long gap in the couch? In the gladiator arena? It would fit precisely one lounging bronzed Jeff Goldblum. Meaning we need two, I guess.

  • I’ve always loved the concept of Xenomorph eggsacs being used as other things. I want to like this cookie jar, except I think it should have been something you actually unpeel, something softer. I don’t like the lid. Also, I don’t understand cookie jars.
  • The Batman and Bill documentary is finally arriving on Hulu. I’m really looking forward to it. Bill Finger has always been a trivia point, but I don’t know much about him.
  • Claire Temple won’t be in Punisher, breaking a tradition. Now, I love her and I like that she’s the narrative glue in these stories, but Iron Fist showed that when you have someone who knows all the other characters and DOESN’T call them for help, it becomes a distraction. I don’t hate this news.
  • This reminds me about recurring old amusing arguments with Lung about air travel: statistically, though more Red Shirts die on screen than other classes in ST, they represent a much smaller percentage of that class, meaning it is, as we’ve always said, much worse an idea to send those officers on the Away Team missions all the time.
  • Here’s the movie which will always be remembered as the project on which Jon Bernthals and Tom Holland worked on their respective Marvel audition tapes with each other.
  • I found this Samurai Iron Man online very late at night in my international travels going stir-crazy in my hotel, so I bought it. It hasn’t arrived, so common sense may prevail and I may return it like a reasonable person. But I MAY NOT.
