June 19, 2013 11:31 pm "With both Daredevil and this title, Waid’s become adept at depicting complex adult friendships. We might take that skill for granted sometimes, but it makes the relationships in some other books look superficial." Well said. Couldn't agree more. I don't pull this title (not a big Hulk guy), but when I pick up my books tomorrow I might just give the issue a shot. Everything the guys have been saying on the podcasts has me curious, and Waid has always been a favorite of mine. If a writer can make me believe a character by giving them a solid voice and believable, consistent characterization, they've got me for life. Few can do that better than Waid.
June 19, 2013 11:22 pm I agree that it seems like DC/WB appears to have no clue when it comes to their movies, but I disagree that DC characters are inherently unable to find success on the big screen. So many of their characters have such a rich history and broad sweeping appeal. Despite the endless debate about the differences between the Marvel and DC universes, I see no reason why DC characters should be unable to find the same success that Marvel's have, despite all evidence to the contrary. It's not the fault of the characters or content, it's the ineptitude and unwillingness to make bold moves on the executive level that has held DC back on the big screen. The one exception thus far has been Nolan's Batman films, and I firmly believe it has less to do with the appeal of the character and more to do with a fearless and competent creative team behind the project.
June 19, 2013 5:13 pm This is depressing. When you sift out the rumors that will most likely amount to nothing, you're left with little more than a MoS sequel. I look at this list of writers and directors, and there's barely a single resume that excites me. A Del Toro JLD has a lot of intrigue, but his history of blabbing about projects that never end up happening leaves me skeptical. And while I'm a big fan of Refn, and I try not to use the word "never" when it comes to Hollywood, I'm pretty sure we will never see a Refn WW movie. If we do, it will be a vastly different approach to the character, which could be a good thing if it can sneak past WB execs. I'd prefer that DC/WB take their time with these things. With the exception of Batman and Superman, they've done nothing but fail over the last ten years, so what's the rush? I know there's a sense of urgency to capitalize on a trend, but superhero movies don't seem to be going anywhere, and I'm honestly enjoying the Marvel films so much that it'd be nice to have something to look forward to once that well is dry. If they deliver material half as good as the Marvel films, they can take all the time they need.
June 19, 2013 3:26 pm That's been a part of Alfred's character (off and on) for a long time. The short answer is that it was his duty to take over for his father, the Waynes previous butler.
June 19, 2013 3:14 pm I agree the color palette looks pretty dark, but with villains like Mr. Toad, Professor Pyg, and Magpie, you're bound to have some levity thrown in for good measure.
June 19, 2013 3:12 pm Looks pretty cool. Not sure if I'll tune in every week or anything, but the animation looks solid and I really dig the variety of villains. I'll keep my eyes on the reviews.
June 19, 2013 2:45 pm Always had a softspot for Damage. He had that great angsty thing that so many of our 90's heroes had going on. And now they're all gone. The universe is, ironically, less bright without them.
June 17, 2013 11:50 pm Looks kinda cool. I'll give it a few issues. I really like some of the designs, particularly Batman and Green Lantern. And apparently in the year 3000, people are finally ready for a Wonder Woman in pants.
June 17, 2013 2:34 pm Skip Challengers, read Seaguy. Like, right now. Go!
June 17, 2013 1:16 pm Actually, I'm curious to see if Soule draws from the Azzarello characterization of Diana. If he does, I may be on board. I'll check out the first issue, but if it drifts into romance comics territory, I'll be bailing out.
