Solo Trailer Revealed – Robots Root 4 Feb 2018

It’s finally coming this Monday, they say. Or they lie, and it’s a Superbowl thing. Or they lie, and this project doesnt even exist.

 

Meanwhile, this is happening:

  • “Action that looks like two Radio Shacks doing kama sutra in a hurricane” – one of the best Honest Trailer lines ever.
  • We’ve Known BMB was moving to DC for awhile now, but it’s official: he’s wandering into the Superman quagmire. What concerns me more, though, is that there are implications that he may be bringing his creator-owned stuff with him. I very much do not want Powers absorbed by DC. Somebody talk me off the ledge, please.
  • I’m beside myself. Normally I’m disinterested in dark and grimy redesigns of classic characters as the solution to film adaptation. But in this one instance, these concepts for a He-Man project look pretty amazing. Cool ways to rationalize the toy elements that make no sense. I know I’ve argued multiple times that most of the designs should just be left alone and ran with, but still.
  • I don’t hate JJ Abrams so the fact that HBO bought Demimonde is fine with me. Budgets!
  • I dislike his modern movies, and I’m weirded out by his bulging face when he talks, but. “Aight potatoes, aight carrots, aight turpentine.” I think I need to know more about Scottish shopping habits.
  • I’m including this since we’ve made a general tradition of butchering her name on the Robot-Kraken Podcast, but this segment on ‘Galspalining’ cracked me up.
  • Look, dont let the fart sounds fool you: teaching Orcas to make human sounds is a B A D . I D E A.
  • The fundamental problem with Venom... which is why they are TOTALLY sneaking Spider-Man in there.
  • Fun, contextual easter egg from Doctor Strange over here.

 

Finally, my entire world feels like this right now.

We are a few hours away from recording another session of the Robot-Kraken Podcast! If you haven’t been keeping up, head over to itunes and subscribe! Reviews and stars and such don’t hurt either! Good stuff to follow…

Six Seven Go To Hell or Go To Heaven – 21 Mar 2017

Tomenosuke PRO Blaster
Let me tole you: if I didn’t have kids in the home, and DID have $899 laying around…
link!

Meanwhile:

– As much as I crave new Hans Zimmer soundtracks, this interview, reposted across various sites, warmed my heart a bit, because I share a devotion to the Nolan Batman films as well. It’s a very intimate and purposeful connection, the soundtrack developed for that trilogy and the material itself. Nolan and Zimmer work well together, thematically (witness Inception and Interstellar for examples outside of the superhero genre) and when Zimmer did the Man of Steel soundtrack, while it was excellent and distinct, it was lending some of that former world’s pedigree to the new films in a way I found disconnected. link!

– Sony wants to proceed with fast-tracking Venom, without a script or director… in the post-Marvel-deal era, what do YOU want from a Venom film? I can’t decide. I really don’t like the character outside of Spidey using the suit and then slowly going batty from the symbiote’s influence. Once it jumped to other hosts and became 90seriffic, I was out. I do like the black ops version from recent years in the comics, but I don’t see how it would translate. link!

– Similarly, WB / DC seem intent on keeping the Flash moving forward (heh) despite multiple issues with the pre-production. That’s not a good sign. link!

– RIP Bernie Wrightson. That escalated fast.
Not my artistic influence, and I didn’t read a lot of his stuff, but I always admired it from a technical level and enjoyed reading about his convention persona. link!

– We’re doomed. More. link! Mega-rich oligarches in powered armor!

Image
– random Kraken-related jewelry for the day. AMAZING.

-I’m trying not to read anything about GOG2 these days… but I can’t get enough on Yondu’s cyber mohawk. link!

Image
– Expanse has been greenlit for Season 3, so I can now relax.
link!

– Alicia Vikander may be joining a new Ben Wheatley project involving kicking nocturnal underground beastie ass. His current project looks insane and awesome, so let’s be optimistic.
link!

Image
– Becky Cloonan’s poster for Ghost in the Shell is EVERYTHING. link!

– Reddit is questionable for a lot of things. But the AMA (Ask Me Anything) series is not one of them. Here’s Gareth Edwards… link!

Image
Your random Mike Mignola block-rockin art used as a bossbot’s iphone screen for today.

– I’m generally not a fan of cosplayers photographed and then given a bunch of post FX. I like the craft of the costuming itself, and that’s as far as I go. However, this is really well done. link!

– Apparently Hela knows capoeira in the new Thor film. I appreciate it’s a gladiator road trip movie, but that’s quite a diversion from the comics. Then again, probably a welcome one. Stand around and glower megagod types are boring on film. link!

– Good news for this guy, having just finished Peaky Blinders S03… S04 is due to begin production, and Tom Hardy will return. link!

– So Fox’s X-Men show for broadcast TV? The one with a family on the run with a mutant child, which seems to have little to know recognizable X-anything in it except for Sentinels? Is it going to be called Mutants on the Run? MutantsSuxxxx? Mutant? Nope. GIFTED. Srsly. I was gifted. I had to do more homework. That is all. link!

Image
Here’s your random Black Adam speculative rendering for today, by Chris Diem. Love it. Great proof of concept…

– Henry Cavill is on board for MI: 6. That’s interesting! I hope he’s a villain. Not a team member who betrays them, but a proper villain. link!

– How strange the wheel is… Matt Vaughn gave the X-Men franchise a brief moment of hope, before getting forced out by Bryan Singer. Now, after doing his own thing (Kick Ass, Kingsmen) he’s back in the big studio system’s favor for supehero tentpoles, being supposedly courted for the next Superman film. If true, that’s something to be modestly optimistic about, similar to what happened with batman. link!

Image
Here’s your random Bill S. pic of the day: Dr Doom!

OK, that’s all for now. Fear not and be just!
Remember, and I’ll remind you a lot in the coming days, I suspect:

Micro-Review: Blade Runner in the Wild and etc 9 March 2017

Micro-Review: Blade Runner in the Wild
A few weeks back I had the opportunity to see an outdoor showing of Blade Runner, accompanied by our own One Lung. It was pretty amazing. The cut was the director’s edition, no voice-overs, no happy ending.

Image
I got their early, expecting it to be packed, being a small outdoor viewing area with limited seating, and a hipster neighborhood in a hipster town (SF)… what I hadn’t anticipated was the fear of FREEZING, as it was extremely (regional context) cold and very windy, and the previous night’s original showing date was canceled due to heavy rain.

Image
As a result, I was sitting out there for about 40 minutes before Lung showed up, tucked into my blankets and snow gear, ha. The guys from Fort Point Brewery were on hand wth IPAs so I had one of those, and once Lung arrived I ordered a pizza from a deep dish place up the street.

Image
The pizza time ran long due to Saturday night crowds, so I missed a chunk of the film, after Leon’s test and up until Rachel shows up at Deckard’s house. So no owls for me. However, in the meantime, my handy Dharma flask from Deeply Dapper kept me warm! The pizza was excellent, the film was especially immersive, being outdoors in a high traffic area, where we had a line of honking cars and yelling pedestrians, and lots of lights and activity, just at the peripheral of the screen. It was like a poor man’s Star Tours, but in an expensive city and with less intended motion.
So awesome.

Meanwhile:

– Who doesn’t need ALIEN tiki mugs in their lives?
link!

– The first review of Iron Fist is in, and it isn’t… favorable. Wow. I’m still optimistic. I seemed to have tolerated Cage’s slow spots and dubious final boss more than most. But I think when you already have a street level martial artist (Daredevil) it is hard to make IF compelling unless you go WHOLE HOG with the asian mysticism… but from the trailers, and this review, it sounds more like another run at Stark, boardrooms, and whining. We’ll see. At least it’s going to be better than the ABC stuff.
link!

– GREAT ‘Different Spider-Man Comic’ … 100% MINIMUM ACCURATE
link!

– This is my kind of conspiracy theory!
link!

– So this is what that Hulk-with-claws image was about. MEH. Make that Weapon MEH.
link!

– The best Pez Dispenser (design) EVER. EVVVVVVARRR
link!

Misc.:

Image
This remains my favorite standalone Hellboy image ever. Ever ever? Ever EVER. I had a print of it years ago, long destroyed, and I had an original pen sketch of similar profile, which was also destroyed due to UV foolishness. Love it.

Image
Related: The Mignola Appreciation Group on FB often posts ‘sound effect’ of the day… based obviously on the enthusiasms around Mignola’s choices of onomatopoeia… this is my current favorite example. Best Drip Drip Drip of the Day.

Image
This manip still cracks me up.

More Expensive Than the Armor Itself – 18 Oct 2016

Image

Buried in the bottom third of this article-ette: I hadn’t somehow noted until now that RDJR is purportedly getting $100M PER MOVIE for the next two Avengers films… and one assumes that is on top of the massive back end deal. Good for that guy.
via

Meanwhile…

Image
ITEM: Speaking of RDJR, they set up a full-on writer’s room for Sherlock 3, which is unusual. Probably if nothing else a good sign that they want to cook the best script they can for the next piece.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: New photos have emerged from Alien: Covenant. Now, yes, there are new Xenomorphs and yes, one has a yuck mouth with human teeth in it, and yes, there are very familiar designs for the egg sacs and such… but I’d like to point out that this Facehugger has a massive anus. And that it appears to be YOOGE, judging by those skulls for scale. The Facehugger, not the anus. Well, both. Happy Friday.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: Talk about a good sport… this cracked me up…
via

:::

Image
ITEM: I’m nauseated by how the sexist minority of male-dominated comic fanboys debased themselves to the point that writer Chelsea Cain quit Twitter and probably left Marvel. Her Mockingbird series is still a few years out, at the rate I’m reading, but I’ve seen excerpts and it reminds me a lot of Faction’s Hawkeye: unconventional storytelling, great characterization, and novelist-style approach to comic scripting. Apparently an independent, divorced, ass-kicking female spy was too much for that contingent… even before she wore this shirt on the cover of the last issue. Madness. Fortunately a healthy host of creators have been pushing hard on this in social media, showing solidarity towards her, and the ongoing changes to the comics world that have seen a greater number of female written, female led books (particularly at Marvel) than ever before. For my daughter’s, AND my son’s sake, we need more of this.
via

:::

Image
Image
Finally, the best of this concept ever done. EVER. Well-played, Don.
via

Here’s another example:

Behold the MEHTROOPER – 26 October 2016

Image

Making Star Wars is floating the worst thing I’ve heard fromt he new SW film franchise yet. And I’ve heard very little from it all that I didn’t like when gleamed in spoiler/concept form. But this does not sound great. The drawing they put up of course negatively influences my perception but anyway…
“He has a matte black line that goes over half his mask on one side that sets him apart. The Executioner’s weapon is not unlike FN-2199’s at the handle but it has three spinning blades on the end that are said to be like something out of Phantasm (think of the crazy blades that come out of the spheres in those films). We think he has a shield but we haven’t been able to confirm if he actually uses it in the film or not.”
By the way, I’ve called this the MEHTROOPER, so if that takes off, you heard it here first.
via

Meanwhile…

Image
ITEM: Very much non-news, but apparently the chestbuster is being referred to as a ‘neomorph’… I’m just posting this because I desperately cling to hope that this will be a cool film. Strike that, that it will be a film I will personally enjoy. Prometheus was a pile, but I still found reasons to enjoy it. Even when I didn’t.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: The Punisher series cast has been fleshed out and it has been given a 2017 release date… which seems to conflict with Iron Fist, unless they are on opposing ends of the calendar year…
via

:::

Image
ITEM: Aquaman and Mera will apparently have romantic tension and conflict and grow to be fond of each other, ie. the Romancing the Stone references he has been putting out there all week. Which is all very strange for the Royal Couple. I wonder if they are an arranged coupling or some other sort of system. Huh.
via

Image re: Stanley [Artgerm] Lau, the Singapore wunderkind.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: As far as I’m concerned, this report that Lucas will not be involved in the script for Indy 5 is GOOD NEWS. Let’s be clear: I’m not a Lucas hater. But I’m not a fan of his input into the Indy films. Crystal. Skull.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: So of course Andrew Garfield is probably asked how he feels about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, not merely from an ego standpoint, but from the perspective of having Spidey 3 canceled out from under him. Regardless of however he actually feels about it, he’s taking the high road consistently, talking about other projects he’s subsequently gotten to do, and how he likes Holland for the role and wishes him well, etc. The thing is, I had problems with both of the Spidey reboot films, the latter more than the former, but I didn’t think Garfield was one of them. He was very watchable to me, and his dynamic with eventual lover and later ex-lover, Emma Stone, was convincing. So, I think it’s a win/win for him. He did fine in the role, but all signs were that Spidey 3 was going to be a disaster, so he got his opportunity to leave the project without leaving the project. Good for him.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: I love superhero listicles, when they aren’t written for mainstream people anyway. So, this one was dear to my heart, as I’m actually a fan of different people taking on the iconic uniforms of major heroes… when done properly. Most of this list is about hot messes that didn’t meet that criteria. But I’ve been a vocal fan of the Dick Grayson-Batman era, and of Bucky’s time as Cap.
via and via

:::

Image
This piece is entitled ‘Homage to Kim Jung Gi’ and I find it mesmerizing and disturbing.

:::

Image
Speaking of those same descriptors… wow Adam Hughes…

That is all. Go pumpkin spice thyself!

He is No Monster! He is a Human Being! – 18 Oct 2016

When Stephen Merchant was cast in Wolverine I was a little bit stymied. I feared a comic relief character was imminent. But this looks AWESOME. Caliban!

Meanwhile, this:

ITEM: A few blips about what happens next for young Holland’s Spidey. Sequels? future Avengers films? I MEAN YES COME ON.

ITEM: One of the best new Lego kits in a while. It’s perfect in every way. I love the 4-in-a-row torpedo seating.

via

:::

Image
ITEM: Thanks to this kick-ass licensing deal, you will be able to order 3D kits of your Starfleet ships of choice, complete with custom designation. SICK! My Reliant dreams are renewed!
via

:::

ITEM: FINALLY A SW R/C THING I CAN GET BEHIND.

ITEM: I present, 11 minutes of alternate artist interpretations of the 60’s Spidey cartoon credits. It’s EVERYTHING.
[url=https://vimeo.com/187255111]via

:::

Image
ITEM: I don’t like this new canon reasoning for the red Sith lightsaber. Wasn’t the Force supposd to require balance? Why would kyber crystals only bond with ‘Light Side’ Force sensitives?

Goggles With Which to Bat-See You With My Dear – 15 09 16

Image
Batman’s tactical suit, which was teased in all that BTS Justice league business in London, has been revealed, seen here brightened and contrast-adjusted. I think it could go a few different ways. I love white eyes or goggles on him, and I have no problem with a lightly armored Batsuit, when it has a PURPOSE, as this apparently does, leaving him in his gray onesie otherwise. It is, however, very Owl Man esque, and the angles of the lenses are odd. Now, I happen to think Owl Man’s look was amazing, but anyway. Hey! Maybe they are just Bat-welding-goggles!via

Image
Side note, speaking of odd costuming: I’ve complained about the current DCU Batman’s yellow piping on the bat symbol and so on, but this is the first time I’ve seen the cape… scalloped… that can’t be right? I mean, I use cape detail like that a lot, but not on Bats. Bats don’t have scalloped wings. What is this even. via

Meanwhile, somewhere in space:

Image
ITEM: ruh-roh, Star Trek: Discovery has been delayed. Maybe that’s a good thing? I dunno. So surreal how Paramount completely blew the 50th Anniversary window. They didn’t market ST Beyond (one of their best received films) and the Discovery series shouldn’t have been announced, it should have been DELIVERED, in time for this summer. Nothing makes sense anymore. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Ben Barnes has been cast in the Punisher series. Maybe as Bobby Saint? I’m not up on my Punisher, so I don’t even. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Truth lassoed! Also, thighs. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Apparently Joker has been confirmed as not being used in Justice League. What will they do with those hours of Leto performances they stockpiled? Harley solo (ish) film? via

:::

Image
ITEM: Kind of funny, but also shows how easy this sort of thing is to dummy up, which is worth considering when you get all those false spoilers. Deadpool + Spidey. I mean, CAPTAIN Deadpool. via

:::

Image
ITEM: This deeply surreal escalator and elevator safety video is worth earphones, a deep dive, and some blueberries while you go. Just, the whole tin, right down the hatch.

Image
Remember kids, vertical transportation is SRS BSNS!via

:::

Image
ITEM: After weeks of speculation and dot-connecting and fan-manips, Joe Manganiello has been confirmed as the villain Deathstroke, in the upcoming Batman film. At least we have a big bad that is Bats’ rival (and occasional victor, in the comics) physically and tactically. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Great article on how important Luke Cage (NETFLIX) is, not only to the Netflix-MCU, but supers live action as a whole. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Points to this guy for effort. It immediately put me into a one hour half-focused exercise in trouble-shooting his scheme and optimizing it for success. My version includes BigDogs(tm) however. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Love this one. WB apparently routinely, inadvertently, send takedowns to Youtube over their OWN content. Talk about censure run amok. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Sphero is finally coming out with their licensed Force Band, to allow you to push, pull, and direct, your BB-8. They also included fake Pokemon Go business, but whatever. It’s sold separately, which is awesome, for those of us who sunk $150US into our bots this past fall. I’d like to see more about what this can do, but I certainly like an alternative to just using the phone as a joystick. Admittedly, I’m sure it will require tandem links. via

:::

Image
ITEM: That black and white version of Fury Road? It’s now called black and CHROME, which makes me laugh, and it’s coming in December, so save those rubles. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Jackie Earl Haley has been tapped to play the big bad, or rather the somewhat diminutive bad, in Rodriguez’ Battle Angel Alita film. I still, despite my manga interests in my youth, have no real sense of this project. But I’m 100% minimum into ANY project with Haley as the villain. So far he completely owned both Preacher and Tick this summer. via

:::

Image
ITEM: Margot Robbie has (wisely) been given a first-look deal at WB, assumed to include a Harley solo film (solo-ish) which shows that WB/DC understand that, better or worse, the character, and her performance, were the greatest takeaways of the SS film. via

:::

We are back from Rose City Comic Con. I’ll have a con report forthcoming, timed with the release of our post-con podcast, but I’ll need a few more days…

No Re-Checkoving and other things 20 July 2016

Image
ITEM: In welcome news for this guy, anyway, they say they won’t recast Checkov. No idea about how they will address his absence, which is fine, as the film isn’t written and the current film isn’t even out, but anyway.

This was an interesting story from last week: in an interview, Affleck seemed to suggest he turned down the hot seat for Force Awakens.

If his Batman kicks ass, it will be a triumphant counter to the negative stigma of BVS (in which he wasn’t even producing, let alone directing) but if not…

Starwars: Battlefront Bespin Expansion Pack… as Lung squeeeeeed to me via email: AT-ATs on Bespin! I have this game. The pack is part of Season Pass, which I don’t have, but could have, if someone were to come over and stuff.
http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/traile … n#/slide/1

Image
The new Spidey game preview is getting mixed reviews for the costume, but while I don’t personally need white in my red/blue Spidey gear, it’s a fine design in and of itself. In fact, if the white were black, it would be pretty organically aligned with the Civil War look. It even has those optics. Note the soles of the feet as well. Looks pretty good, mechanics-wise.

The old Ghostbusters firehouse kit was pretty awesome. But check out this fan-built concept for the new film’s HQ? I love it. The lettering signage…

Donald Glover has apparently joined Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is a nice touch, given his connection to the character in recent efforts. How great would it be if he WAS Miles Morales???

As pretty as she is, as good a cosplay it is in construction and design, here’s an example of where doing cosplay of a comic costume (or game costume in this case) highlights how awkward it looks in real life. The tenuous clipping of this dress thing just looks so awkward. Kind of like some of the attempts at Morrison era Emma Frost with the magic bustier.

JMS’ initially-solid and soon-hotmess series Rising Stars is apparently in development at MGM, because of course it is. I don’t even have a god image for this, because while I liked the story initially, I never liked the art or the designs….

That’s all, kids. Go practice Bespin AT-AT walking…
