Get this Man a Shield – Robots Root 29 Nov 2017

Well, the trailer may not have been the creepy, story-telling ‘preface’ style one I was hoping for, rather than a clip show, but what we got was pretty amazing. Highlights for me include Peter’s Spider-Sense, what I’m sure is Banner wearing the Hulkbuster armor (after Ragnorok, being initially reluctant to hulk out makes sense), a great look at Cap in the beard and blacked out Winter Soldier -era uniform but with Wakandan gloves, and Thanos’ smirks. Also, probably most of all, this Iron Man crumpling smackdown above. Watch it here, for the 33rd time. My first three were on an iphone, so it was nice to size up to 30″ at work. THATSWHATSHESAID

Other root:

  • This whole project confounds and delights me. More holiday T than we deserve. I give it a Kah and a Kiyah!
  • Cross-stiched Ultima screencap? Sure! Reminds me of those mandalas you wipe away when completed.
  • So, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. Meno as the traitorous Kree informant Yon-Rogg. Effing SKRULLS in the first place. Time shunting. And now, Jude Law as Captain Mar-Vell? So good. Plus, if he is truly named that way, more logic gymnastics for the screenwriters to sort out.
  • The Hindenburg Explodes! is one of those fairly high-concept, stony exercises Adult Swim tends to greenlight. It’s a fake pilot by Robb Cordry, featuring many familiar faces and at least three jokes. I sought it out after seeing a soundless GIF of the last three seconds, precisely. I watched the whole thing, though, for science.

  • I loved loved LOVED Blade Runner 2049. I plan to see it, flaws and all, at least 3,333 more times. But this scathing review is my personal favorite review of anything ever. He actually describes birthing replicants as ‘DECANTING.’
  • Guillermo del Toro regrets not helming the Paramount ‘Dark Universe’ films that are now all canceled. So do I, man. Regret that he didn’t, not that I didn’t. I wouldn’t do it.
  • It is suggested that the presumed multi-verse angle of Avengers 4 and the next lifetime of films will be made to happen via quantum realm hopping, a la Ant-Man (and Wasp) which works for me.
  • The CB Cebulski pseudonym controversy is pretty fascinating, coming out at this precise time (him taking over at Marvel, him openly admitting he used a Japanese pseudonym to write comics for Marvel in the 90s, and the culturial appropriation and racism implied though not universally understood) and it’s an interesting zeitgeist for the discussion. At least to me. If he were writing those ninja stories under his real name, would the controversy be as great?
  • This isn’t even from Vivid Video. They already did one.*
  • Finally, LEGO LIGHTCYCLE TAKE MY MONEY that I don’t have.

*I initially mistyped VELMO which seems like something from an adult furry convention.

Darwyn Cooke is the Wrong Man – 13 May 2016

FUCK! Darwyn Cooke is suffering from an aggressive cancer. A wonderful artist and apparently a sweet guy. UPDATE: he passed away last night.

Joel Kinnaman is attached to an adaptation of the late cyberpunk novel Altered Carbon. Guess I should move that up to the top of my stack of books waiting to be read before I’m theoretically dead. I love Joel Kinnaman BTW. I didn’t know how I felt about him in Robocop, or rather, AS Robocop, going in, but then warmed up to him quickly. Loved him in House of Cards. Love him in SS trailers, though he’s barely recognizable.

Can’t even tell that’s Ben Foster, and Chris Pine feels more real when not in pretty boy mode. Just like Brad Pitt’s deal.

Now. The Accountant. I kid you not, I may be more excited for this Affleckness than I was about his Batman.

Adam McKay is adapting Irredeemable as a feature film. The comic featured basically an unhinged Superman nuking the Justice league and then nuking everyone else, and when done nuking, nuking some more. Sounds great!

Jason Rainville’s essay on simplified, unified design principles is basically a master class in everything I struggle to do as an artist, and I love it, 3,000,000 times. READ IT!
