Hows My Breath – Robots Root 9 Nov 2018

Laika’s Missing Link trailer makes everything almost OK. I so cannot even wait.

 

Meanwhile, in the Quantum Realm:

 

  • I love stuff like this. As an artist, I hoard ‘chronological costume reference’ material whenever I find it. Which isn’t often. I committed to drawing every Iron man armor, and I’m woefully behind. Granted I have more prints than most anyone else you’ll come across, but I have many to go.

  • Similarly, this Isle of Dogs poster makes me sweat. I want it framed, badly.
  • This 1:1 scale Venom bust is pretty incredible, and I say that as someone who doesn’t like the Venom design and thought the movie imagery looked ridiculous.
  • What the hell? A final Scooby Doo episode?!?
  • Jeremy Irons asĀ Ozymandias? That’s brilliant casting, actually.
  • I was surprised at the news of a Cassian Andor series on Disney+, but I’m quite pleased with it. Rogue One is my favorite SW project, and a prequel series dipping deeper into the pre-Empire post-Sith era works for me.
  • I am not so enthused about the finally confirmed Loki series. They’d have to be pretty creative to make that show work for me. I don’t like him front and center. I like him as a foil and a conflict agent.
  • Honest Trailer for Incredibles 2, followed by How It Should Have Tole You.
  • I know I’m being overly-critical here, but the addition of Slimer undermines the poster for me.
  • Kingsman 3 without the main lead? Either they’re doing a misdirect (wasted energy, as no one cares) and will pull a Kingsman 2 and bring whomever the want back on a whim (I’m looking at you, Mark Strongbad) or they’re going to focus on the Statesmen, which I wouldn’t mind, though they are better as a side element, not the main show. Who knows, with this random franchise. We bludgeoned it to death in the recent Robot-Kraken podcast discussion…
  • Antoine Fuqua is doing a big budget sci-fi/adventure film called the Infinites, which feels very late aughts indie comic… I’m on board conceptually, based on the vague premise and the skills of the director. But an odd choice!
  • A nice look at the creature design in Guillermo del Toro’s work. Which is a short video, because he uses the same three affectations over and over, ha! I kid.
  • OK, now THAT is a costume skin I didn’t expect out of the new Spider-Man game on the PS4. Right down to the zipatone.

  • Jessica Henwick has joined Godzilla vs. Kong vs. Whomever. Which is just being posted as an excuse to show Jessica Henwick in pigtails with an Iron Sword again. You’re welcome.

With that I leave you. Excelsior!

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!

 

Thats all for tonight. Brought to you by the 33% Nation of Iron Fist Katanas.

Curly Kicks and Hair Flips 2 May 2016

Image

At this point, though I am the Designated Optimist, Olivia Munn doing Hair Flips and Curly Kicks as Psylocke is the one remaining thing I’m optimistic about with X-Men: Apocalypse.

However,

Fox was certainly hoping the last second Wolvie reveal in the new trailer would generate Spidey type buzz. It did not.

Image
Frankly, I’m more interested in Blob being in the film. HA!

Trailer here:

Also of note, the sort-of 80’s X-Men costumes make an appearance. Sort of. I think if they just replicated the comics it would be even MORE believably 80s. But points for trying and using, you know, colors and stuff. Sophie turner looks weird in costume for some reason. Stance?

Lastly, Bryan Singer is once again over-explaining and protesting about his choices in this film, from the fishy excuses about Apocalypse’s voice, to technology allowing for ‘performance editing’ while at the same time defending Oscar Isaacs’ performance. Hm.

But hey, at least we get sweet 80’s shoulder pads and easter eggs!

In other news…

Welp, on the one hand, I still love what they did with the main cast. On the other hand, the baddies continue to alarm me, from the two we saw in toy fair promos, to now learning they messed with a good thing, and gave Slimer 2.0 TEXTURE.

I didn’t think I’d be interested, since Stone, for all of his mad scientist skills, tends to throw me off with his conspiracy theory stuff. But JGL is owning this once again. That voice!

Hmmm… a few weeks before CW comes out, suddenly RDJR s hinting at being up for another film. Negotiation strategy? Plan all along? Decoy over bad things happening to Stark in the upcoming film? Hmmm again.

Star Wars characters my 6 year ld daughter created that I intend to draw as well…

So this is happening. I’m super stoked to see more of Bernthal’s Punisher, though I wonder how it will feel, tonally, with him on his own…

Now, I’m inspired to share Punisher artwork, because reasons!

Acuna!

Another Honest Trailers video for the previous two seasons of GoT. I’m still watching this, but I loved ‘heavy metal album art’…

Alicia Vikander as the new Tomb Raider? I’ll show YOU a Womb Raider! Wait, that’s not right…I’ve said too much.

According to this, Affleck and Johns pretty much have carte blanche freedom on the Batman solo film. Personally, I think that’s great news.

However…

According to THIS, they want to use every character ever.

John Krasinski as Jack Ryan on Amazon TV? New stories, not the same continuity of any of the others? Sure, I’ll take it.

Sethe Grame-Smith just bailed on Flash, while Wan is apparently considering dumping Aquaman. And the interwebs are rife with rumors of clashes between Snyder and WB. Could mean nothing, could mean PANIC ON THE STREETS OF LONDON

That is all. New podcast being recorded tonight, so get ready!
Last week’s Game of Thrones review is up on the site and itunes now.
