It wasn’t bad, but it felt soulless. Compared to what came before in the Hickman era. The thing about sci…

April 24, 2015 2:52 am Personal fav episode is 9, Speak of the Devil, NOT because of the aweseome fight with a Hand Ninja, where DD gets beat to a plup, that was great and it's use as a framing device was stellar. No I like it for the talk Matt has with his preist about justified murder, is it right to kill an evil man, and what does it mean to try? That idea is quinitesentially daredevilian, about justice, violence, and it's reprocussions. I'll be sad to see that preist killed, probably by Bulleye, because you know that's going to happen. Also AKA Jessica Jones is supposed to be out later this year, not next year, as was said on the podcast. (I'm thinking mid October. They started filiming in Feburary, should be done by late July...you worked in Tv production Josh and Connor, you do the math) Luke Cage is supposed to be next year in the spring slot, followed by Iron Fist later in 2016. The Defenders follows this in a shorter run of 4-8 episodes in 2017. How DD getting a second season messes with this is still to be seen.
June 11, 2013 9:57 am Marvel is smart, How smart, Smart enough to know how to cock block DC from making their films. Both FOX and Disney want to use Quicksilver in there next movie, could it be because he's a super compelling character, or because they want to steal the glory of having shown the "super speed effects" before DC can make a whole movie featuring that. I'd love to see a Flash film but how likely is the already skiddish Warner Bros to green light a Flash film when all the effects in it have already been seen in Avengers and X-Men? How are they supposed to sell that without seeming like they are also rans? In the same way I'd love to see Darkseid as the Villain in a Justice League movie, but if DC used him they would look to the public like they are knocking off Thanos from the end of the Avengers movie, even though in actually Darkseid is way cooler and came first. So now Warner's is trying to find a way to make a Vandal Savage/ Starro Team up seem cool. DC and Marvel have very different characters, who need to be treated very differently, Marvel is mostly made of people who are heroes, with a couple Gods and monsters thrown in there. DC is made of Gods who think they are people, with the occasional person and a monster as the villain. DC needs to get it's shit together, get some balls and own these Characters, their powers, and make these movies for what they are or they are going to get beat to the punch every time and in so doing seem lame and stale.
May 16, 2013 4:46 am Just got back from it, This is the year of the misleading Trailers it seems and I am not sad for it, in fact that makes me happy. There are some great little easter eggs for fans and some great twists on some old stories. I wanted this to be a show when the first one came out in 2009, that feeling is quadrupled at the end of this film.
May 11, 2013 2:20 pm This is my attempt at making this show. It has Ultron in it. Next to no one has seen it, so please watch, it's like 4 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOoyrwElwqU
May 4, 2013 1:21 am I think a lot in the Geek community, of which I am one, are not liking this because it didn't give you the Mandarin you were hoping for, but look at all the other great stuff you got! I even liked the kid, I love how harsh Tony got with him, "Yeah dads do that, so what." I loved we got to see Tony in a ton of armors, I love that they had Pepper in the film kicking a little ass, I loved the attention to detail and continuity that was in the opening scene (notice anyone important?) I loved the watch. We even got to see RJD act a little bit with his PTSD. This was a really fun great movie.
April 23, 2013 11:22 pm More like "Teen titans NO!" Oh God I'm so clever.
April 23, 2013 11:13 am Might still be a good movie, but that was a lame trailer, outside of some Sif v. Portman jealously nothing was really clear plot wise. I expect the next trailer, sometime in July I would bet, to be EPIC!
April 17, 2013 3:08 am Also a nice bit of superman: birthright. Which I consider to be the definitive origin of big blue. Makes me happy.
March 20, 2013 6:50 pm Thinking more about it, it may be that they want a type of Superman on the shelves for when the movie comes out that no one is willing to write. The biggest problem with the character lately has been that they are sort of making him a bit of an ass at times, a cocky frat boy with powers who deep down cares about people, and I think most writers have more respect for the character than to do that. The problem since the reboot is they wanted new and fresh at DC, when they should have wanted what Marvel did, which is just good storytelling.
March 20, 2013 6:26 pm DC (Bob Harris from history really) seems to be treating their writers like replaceable commodities, as if anyone could do the job as well as any other person. This removes the excitement of reading a Superman or Green Lantern comic, and makes the stories feel like product to be given to the consumer instead of something that I want to buy or be excited about. I don't want a Superman book because I enjoy the pictures, I want a Superman book because I like the story, I believe it's going to mean something and be about something that an author actually cares about and that I could care about too. If it's just another Superman book because that's what the author had to do to pay rent that month then who cares?
