Although there is a passing resemblance between the way they’ve rendered Mysterio’s powers and Dr. Stranges’, I think that the CGI team was smart enough to design Mysterio’s so they look as if they are manufactured, and not magic.

You can see that his suit lights up when he uses the energy blasts, and the artists have

I can’t wait to see what kind of movie this music inhabits. Just listening through the tracks, you have to wrap your mind around the fact that the soundtrack alone is unlike anything ever put in a big budget superhero movie. Just imagine the story and world that this flow through. The future is here. Bring it on!

No. You’re not. I really like that movie, and still think it’s the best Hulk movie to date. That said, I think a Hulk movie starring the Hulk from Thor:Ragnarok would supplant it. Before that, Ang Lee’s Hulk has been the only one to really give him a personality and humanity.

I feel like the nuance being missed here is that Dear Leader doesn’t understand perspective, or is unwilling to allow that there was another perspective on the audience that made its sparsity relative to Obama’s 2009 inauguration more apparent. I mean, I can see how a reeeeaaaaalllly slow person would be confused by Read more

I am in the recast camp. For those aware of Cushing, the CGI was distracting. It’s still apparently too hard to get mouths and jowl skin to look real when the person speaks. Read more

It seems like io9 of late is desperately in need of a copy editor. There were a few mistakes even here that a good copy editor would’ve caught. You can’t blame the authors alone, since their work probably had to be revised multiple times in quick succession. Alas, the internet publishing world by and large doesn’t see Read more

Okay, serious question: with giant tusk-like lower incisors sticking out of their mouths, how are the orcs not constantly drooling?

The Marvel storyline seems much more grounded in the characters and arcs that they’ve created until now.

Captain America’s arc has been about a very thoroughly selfless person who wanted to serve his country for the benefit of others, only to be severely disillusioned about his country and betrayed by the organization Read more

You’ve just summed up why I loved the first two Captain America movies. In the first one they establish that Steve Rogers gets his ass regularly kicked and that what makes him great is that he keeps getting back up. In the second they established that even as a super-powered hero, letting someone pummel the crap out Read more

While I’m at home on paternity leave I’ve been leaving Midsomer Murders playing in the background to pass the time. I am convinced that Hot Fuzz is basically an episode of Midsomer Murders done in the Bayhem style. The show, too, seems to be having fun skewering the prim and proper village life, casting charming rural Read more

The red droid thingy walking with Rey and Finn looks like Rey’s vehicle from earlier trailers. Maybe it transforms?

My understanding was that the ATM being fritzed was meant to indicate that Lincoln zapped it to get the money he offered John to buy his truck. Lincoln is a bad boy! Read more

Moore’s Tom Strong is also a great, optimistic, fun take on the entire history of comics/pulp storytelling. I am so glad that Moore wrote that and 1963. Dark and gritty is ok when done well, but it shouldn’t be the only palette that artists work from.
