Another fantastic issue, this is the one book I feel that Geoff Johns is doing right. He has slowly built…

April 2, 2017 4:48 pm Surprised you guys didn't include the near 6 month hiatus for Lazarus 26, or the year it's gonna take for the next arc! Terrible form for a creator owned book! Speaking of which, is American Vampire ever going to be concluded? Can you ask Scott Snyder about that?
March 28, 2017 12:21 pm Disappointed to hear @Ron express apprehension at having to watch Iron Fist just because of the negative reviews, come on mate, watch it then make up your own mind! I'm sure its certainly better than Gossip Girl, which you seemed to love, stop rewatching Twin Peaks a million times and get your skates on.
March 19, 2017 3:14 pm Good show- when are we getting the Iron Fist special edition? Wasn't as bad as the early reviews but very weak compared to the other 3. Terrible dialogue and no real threat, inconsistent tone- all over the shop. Story should have been an origin story with an episode or two in Kun Lin midway through the season (like Daredevil and Cage) with Danny being mercilessly bullied because he is white, which drives him to be the Iron Fist. Comes to New York to take on the Hand, but instead runs into a vengeful Davos backed by Gao/Crane Mother. Tries to wrestle back control of his company in the meantime, with the Meachums in a drastically reduced role. I enjoyed watching it but it's a series misstep and a real missed opportunity, obviously the writing team had no real connection to the comics nor a clue how to adapt it
January 16, 2017 2:12 pm @Ron, the Will Smith wide brimmed 'pimp' hat was lifted from the Deadshot short in the Batman Gotham Knight DVD. In it, he is reimagined as an upper crust aristocrat with a dandy look. @Conor I had no problems with Leto's take on the Joker, you guys still haven't read the Azzarello and Bermejo OGN, which is depressing as it is a key Joker text. He is basically an unhinged crime boss in that book, rather than a supervillain/agent of chaos. While his look is clearly ott, there are certain shots where Leto smiles, not laughs, where he physically looks exactly like the comic. It's a shame that Warner Bros butchered his performance, as he has nothing of any substance to do in the movie, but nevertheless he is compelling when he is onscreen. Please articulate your critiques more substantially next time as we're still not sure why you didn't like 'everything'. The 1 being Electro is another IFanboy classic
December 11, 2016 6:15 pm I fully expect Gomorrah season 2 and Black Mirror season 3 to be included in the TV segment of the annual all year media wrap up show. If not, you guys are wasting your time not watching the right programmes
November 20, 2016 3:26 pm One useless superpower that must be included is the ability to understand, word for word, whatever Frankie Carbone is saying
November 1, 2016 12:47 pm Just out of curiosity, when will be able to have all the iFanboy video shows uploaded to the dedicated YouTube channel?
October 30, 2016 3:03 pm Undoubtedly the weakest of the Marvel Netflix series. I think they set the tone early, unlike Jessica Jones and Daredevil, the show starts of ploddingly and takes a while to find its groove. I think both Ron and Conor hit the nail on the head, the major problem were the villains. Killgrave and Wilson Fisk were both super powered, albeit in muted ways. Cottonmouth only fires an RPG, that is his only badass moment, the rest of the time he is moaning, helpless and is never able to mount even a half decent offensive. I think if they incorporated some of his comic book powers, such as his speciality with poison, it would have show him capable in his villainy and raised the stakes. Although Diamondback was hammy, you at least believed he was a credible threat. Shades was definitely one of the highlights, as was the origin episode and the Mama Mabel flashback. Music was great, but all in all, the weakest so far.
September 19, 2016 12:34 pm Check out Batman: Broken City (written by Brian Azzarello) for some sweet Eduardo Risso art. The story is an incredibly dark, down to earth crime noir story
August 11, 2016 5:39 am I think the gangster iteration that they were going for with Jared Leto's performance was taken from Azzerello and Bermejo's 'Joker' OGN, where the portrayal is one more grounded in that of a crime boss, albeit completely unhinged. However the look there was more in line with the scruffy, chelsea grinned appearance that Heath Ledger sported. I don't mind his portrayal, I thought it was different, not necessarily bad. They just didnt give him enough to do. It's interesting to see that a moviegoer is now suing the film for false advertising because the scenes that were used in the trailer were cut. I think that is what pisses us all, the studio meddling. All in all another subpar to terrible offering from Warner Brothers. Hopefully they will give Geoff Johns control in the same way they now give Kevin Feige. I am not holding my breath though.
