And asking whether or not I knew that Marvel was owned by Disney was a perfectly legitimate question with no sarcasm behind it at all. My mistake. Read more

NO, I didn't realize that Disney owned Marvel. I've been living under a rock, with no head, for the past 3 years. What else did I miss? I discovered this great new thing, it's called air. Do you think it will catch on??? Read more

It's disingenuous to say that Marvel is not telling one big story because certain movies lack the Infinity Gems. It's changing the facts to suit your argument. And it doesn't speak to my original point anyway. Read more

I don't know. Marvel is trying to tell one unified story through a number of different properties. Disney is just too big to try that level of coordination. They will run into the same problems that Fox, Sony, and Time Warner have in trying to create their own movie universes, and in some ways the same problems Disney Read more

I'm excited about Tomorrowland, Spectre, Insidious Chapter 3, and a bunch of small horror movies like It Follows. I'm also dying to get a look at Fantastic Four, and see if it was worth it for Fox to create a riff with Marvel over.

I'm glad you got my secret coded message directed at you and no one else, I was worried for a moment. Read more

How many year end HOT TAKES can one movie get? Depending on the minute Amazing Spider-Man 2 was either too much of a superhero movie, or it failed to understand Peter Parker, or everyone associated with the movie knew instinctively that the movie would suck, or nerds plotted the downfall of the movie because they want Read more

I think the thing that bothers me most about the remake is that the director and everyone involved with the original said the movie was designed to be a showcase for that style of martial art that is specific to that area of the world. It's a story that is uniquely tied to that place and those people but Hollywood has Read more

I don't know. It's pretty bad all around. Plus you forgot the response to The Last Airbender movie, and I'm pretty sure negative reaction to whitewashing helped to stop the making of an American Akira movie. Read more

2014's genre stuff was so depressing I tore my eyes from my head. The Agony! Oh well, I would have just hated everything in 2015 anyway. Read more

I'm going with Mandrakk the Dark Monitor vs the assorted Supermen of the DC multiverse

I think there is a bit of a difference between avoiding something because it just doesn't interest you as opposed to making sweeping judgments based on at best limited experiences. The internet is already lousy with the latter, it's just tiresome at this point. Read more

God this garbage again? Why do people think there is a super secret special formula for telling a good story? Oh Stupid Nerds, you added 3 teaspoons of world building when you only needed two! What is wrong with you! That's not how storytelling works and I'm sick of people acting like there is some magic blueprint to Read more

Fantastic work as always. Here is a CBR interview where they confirm Inhumans and Daisy Johnson, though not Zabo. Also, Tripp seems to be really dead, which SUCKS. Read more

Can't they just get rid of everybody at this point? Fire Gruden, Cut RGIII, and someone get on finding the 7 horcruxes needed to destroy Daniel Snyder. That would be the only good outcome at this point.

I know, maybe that is part of the plan. Tying the show directly into a movie to boost the show, which seems to be working, but with the movie so far off if the show fails its not that big of a hit to the movie. I don't know, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

That's an incredibly reactionary view of The Ultimates. One, it was a story always tied Bush era America. It's a story very much about a certain time. And the first issue came out after 9/11, so not really sure of your point there. And Thor was a Norse God in The Ultimates, it's just that no one believed him until Read more

I think this one was about Barry wanting really impress Ollie and overdoing it when Ollie wasn't in awe of him. I really loved Diggle's reaction and his random questions about the Flash's bathroom practices. I do think they tried to do a bit too much in the episode, and it would have been better if Barry had caught Read more
