I don’t think this show did any favors for Birds of Prey. I feel like my desire for an R-Rated Harley Quinn was satisfied weeks before the movie was released.

Yep, we all know with absolute certainty Portman is not coming back to the MCU after this Thor movie.

It’s a misleading figure. They’re spreading out the startup costs of Jon Favreau, who is a billion-dollar movie director, and the investment in the new technology being developed for the cinematography. They’re not actually spending that much on any particular episode.

Perhaps, but I don’t see how I would separate the two. That’s like saying I wasn’t a fan of Star Wars, just the writing, because I think this new trilogy is a giant dumpster fire. Again, to me, Birds of Prey was Babs and Dinah and their dynamic. It wasn’t Oracle and Black Canary and any other superheroes they needed. Read more

After thinking on it after the previous BoP post, I’ve come to realize Birds of Prey was originally about two superheroes continuing to fight the good fight after suffering what were written as career-ending injuries. A Bat-hero who can’t literally kick ass. A metahuman who lost her meta ability. They were consigned Read more

Looking forward to that Mayfeld spin-off where he travels the galaxy explaining he wasn’t a stormtrooper and that a .22 is the best choice for home defense.

I mean, I noticed the change immediately, but I didn’t drop the title immediately. They started with Huntress, but then Savant got worked in there, and then others got worked in. It wasn’t turned into a team book immediately, but the shift in direction was there. Actually, I first realized there was a shift in Robin Read more

So I hear, but to me, BoP was Babs and Dinah. Two people, no powers (at the time), doing what they can to help and forming a friendship along the way. They brought in help when they needed it, but it wasn’t a superhero team book. Nothing against Simone. I just wasn’t interested in another superhero team book.

It’s art imitating life times two. I’m wondering if the only way they could bring Moranis back was with a story that allows him to share his actual experience. Maybe they pitched the usual comedy, and he came back and told them he needs a story that reflects his reality. If that’s the case, if Moranis wants this Read more

Shout out to Chuck Dixon for making that original ongoing series so good and for enforcing the fact that Birds of Prey was the title of the book, not the name of the group. You wouldn’t think it, but that rule was so important for keeping the book grounded. It got thrown out almost immediately after he left, and I Read more

It’s almost certainly a Halloween costume. Reminds me of how they put Captain America in his first costume.

Tatooine is a planet ruled by gangsters. He could get in the middle of a gang war between rival Hutts, protect a family from a shakedown, track down a mcguffin that will end the war, etc. There are endless story possibilities if they take the time to flesh out the setting and establish conflicts for Obi-Wan, or rather  Read more

Wasn’t it just assumed every director on The Mandalorian was approached about a movie? You direct an episode, then afterward they ask how you liked the experience, if you’d be interested in doing more with the franchise, etc. It would be malpractice if they did otherwise.

The difference between fan service in TROS and The Mandalorian comes down to literal vs. metaphor. Rey doesn’t just fly an X-Wing in TROS. She’s Red Five. She can’t just use a lightsaber. It has to be the Skywalker lightsaber. Things in TROS can’t just look familiar. They have to be those actual things no matter how Read more

We’re not reading the entire script here. I would assume Burnett and now here Germain are highlighting elements that deviate from specific plot points in TROS. If it feels neat, it’s because we’re reading a cleaned up summary.

Here’s a theory: Sony is lying. They are purposely misleading people into believing Morbius is part of the MCU in order to catch that gravy train. Sony uses an image of Spider-Man they already own, and Spider-Man never actually shows up. Keaton never makes any claim to playing the same character, and Sony only has to Read more

If I’m losing the argument, why are you resorting to memes? I have examples. I have events shown in the movies. You have memes. I guess you must be winning then.

It’s an artist’s rendition of Spider-Man, not a photo. It doesn’t have to look exactly like any MCU Spider-Man.
