I think the reason why the Bruce Wayne show got cancelled was because it would've competed with the new Batman movie they were planning on making at the time. Plus, I heard the costs of making the show were going to be pretty high.

I don't get why Marvel hasn't tried tv. We've been hearing about Alias happening for almost a decade now.

A HBO Daredevil show?

ABC wanted to do the Hulk show this year but didn't have the financing, but they still want to make that Hulk show.

They seem to have forgotten about the other Marvel shows they are developing though.

I seriously doubt Hulk tv is going to happen now that Ruffalo killed that shit in theaters.

BUT

Any excuse to post this.

05-18-2012, 05:14 PM
Actually its probably MORE likely to happen now that Ruffalo killed it in theatres. Popularity = ratings.

The ABC president talked about it at their upfront. He said the script he received would be the most expensive pilot in the history of tv.

My guess is it will have nothing to do with the movies.

EML
05-18-2012, 05:19 PM
My guess is it won't happen.

Draven
05-18-2012, 05:22 PM
I think it was just announced recently that ABC passed on AKA Jessica Jones.

And I haven't heard shit on that Punisher tv series that was supposed to happened. I think that was the one where Frank Castle was a cop who has an alias of the Punisher. I wouldn't be too mad if they passed on that proposed series as well.

A really nice butterscotch pudding
05-18-2012, 05:24 PM
Nah.

Unless Marvel wants that shit like that bear every goddamn episode, it's not gonna happen. Keep in mind they announced that Hulk show before Avengers actually started production and in interviews its clear they were caught off-guard by how well Hulk was received.

Why would you relegate the strongest marvel hero to tv? I doubt Mark Ruffalo is going to star in a TV show and then show up in theaters every other year.

A Cloak & Dagger show, a Heroes for Hire show, even a Runaways show, yeah, I could see that.

Or it could just be Smallville 2.0. :shrug:

is there an interesting lex luthor-eqsue character for him to talk to?

tiny white penis
10-11-2012, 02:41 AM
Well okay...so many of the changes make little sense, and they appear to be setting up way too much too early, but basically,...

-Speedy is his nickname for his sister, and she's addicted to pills and coke?
-His ex-girlfriend is upset because her sister got killed on Queen's expedition, and I think his ex-girlfriend is Black Canary?
-The cop that's after him is the ex-girlfriend's dad?
-There's an unexplained Deathstroke mask on the island when Queen escapes at the beginning?
-Queen will be having flashbacks to the island the whole series?
-He's got like some sort of list that he's crossing names off of?
-His mom is evil?
-Merlin is his best friend in this? Whose job it is to ramble off inane pop culture references? Also he's banging the ex-girlfriend?
-He wears spraypaint instead of a mask?
-They borrowed the Batman Begins soundtrack?
-So many of the actors are horrible, but I guess the main guy is passable?

And no lex luthor character max, no.

On the other hand, reeeally don't want any more of them to be on CW. This looks terrible.

I am going to write a guy with one cyborg eye into my rapedog movie just to show the world how you fucking make robo-eyes guys look cool.
People that get into costume design are almost all retarded, apparently.
The key is to not tape one of those single cup coffee warmers to the dudes face.
It makes him look like Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame.

10-15-2012, 06:10 PM
Will he have his normal eye, but you'll CGI the cyborg eye red?

Wilhelm
10-15-2012, 06:30 PM
No...No CG. You make it so it's just like two eyes on the same plane, the cyborg one, maybe, like, a John Lennon monocle, then the hi-tech parts conform to face and lens from there, so it's a well proportioned face only one eye is tech, instead of having this 3 pound droopy box hanging off a guys face.

It's the same thing I said about fucking Nolan Batman armor...it does not have to actually function as armor in real life. It's all aesthetics, so a really good Batman "mask" should be more like a make-up prosthetic, so they look like a Jim Aparo Batman instead of like a retarded caveman, like Affleck Daredevil looked.

On my life, all costume designers are gonna get PISTOLWHIPPED.

Probably the latter. And Laurel takes over the Black Canary role. Which is sad because Sara is a much better character than Laurel at this point.

First off, fuck you. Green Arrow is A-List :mad: (Swamp Thing, Hulk, and Green Arrow are my favorite heroes :inlove:)

I try to be as diverse as possible with the things I watch. I'm just finishing Twin Peaks so it seems Arrow would be a nice change of pace. Tho... I really just included the True Detective and Arrow in the same sentence to troll since I knew you'd all raise eyebrows.:D I'll def. watch True Detective. I was really wondering if this show is worth my time. Now I do like cheese since I love Vampire Diaries and House of Cards, but I tried watching the pilot to Arrow once and I couldn't get past the first five minutes.

Arrow is a great comic book tv series. Lots of call-backs and references to the DC universe at large.

The early first half of Arrow was a bit shaky. But the show has definitely found it's groove now. And the second season has just been hitting on all cylinders.

This is just bad. Poor character. Terrible motivations. Very little intelligence or creativity. And just forced. The love stories. The family drama. All of it is so lazy and poor. Again.

Ha. I'm going all KAINE on this thread. Ranting about something no one cares about.

However. Like this scene in Ep 13 when the Lieutenant gives Quentin order to lay off the Arrow case because the city likes him, it's like why can't this be written with a modicum of intelligence? Not a bad idea. I like the overall progression that the city starts to like Arrow, but Quentin's blind hatred of Arrow is stupid. What would be more interesting would be if they had written the scene a little softer like Quentin genuinely baffled as to why they're not going after Arrow since he's technically a criminal and him trying to reconcile what that means. Instead of all this bluster of "ARGH ARROW IS A MENACE! BLAH!" Give Quentin depth. I mean other places like the cliche shit like "But Diggle... She's my moms, she can't be evil!" Like the show doesn't ever just take a step back adn say... "Superheros are stupid, we know this, so let's thrown out 80 years of bad writing and approach this as writers and write a good story." No they just continue to use bad tropes and lazy writing to get by. Anger.

EP 13 - When QUentin says "Doesn't mean I have to read the Bastard his rights tho" ... Yes it does... You can't arrest him if you don't.

EML, verify this for me, but pretty sure if you're not read your miranda rights it voids an arrest or some such thing.

EML
03-23-2014, 07:38 PM
Naw, it doesn't void the arrest.

You can arrest a suspect and not read them the Miranda warning. It just means that anything gained from interrogating them pre-Miranda can't be admitted in court to incriminate them. So if you know you've got the guy on camera shooting someone in the face, the Miranda warning won't really keep you from getting a conviction. Most suspects are "Mirandized" as a matter of standard procedure to prevent any slip ups, but the warning itself does not need to be said in order to complete an arrest.

Movies205
03-29-2014, 11:45 PM
Bingo.

I mean it's prolly the best live-action superhero TV show that I've seen to date that isn't super camp, but that's not saying much. In its favor, in terms of story arcs, it sets things up nicely and has that running continuity that we all love from the comic books. However. The characters are stupid and lame almost all the time so anytime, there is an actual story moment... it feels dumb and contrived.

Like for example. There's a character called Diggle. He's Ollie's body guard. He has two purposes on the show. One to be the moral voice of the show and clearly state the action of what's going on at all times. And two, to get Ollie out of trouble every now and again. As a character tho, he is absolutely ridiculously bland. There's nothing to him except A SENSE OF DUTY, w/e that means. And that's like everyone on the show. They all serve a purpose that you understand that drives the story forward, but it doesn't ever feel that organic.

The action is good and it pays lip-service to a lot of stuff if you're a fan of the comics, but there's nothing truly that great in the show. And it really is like if you took Nolan's batman movies and turn them into a TV show, which isn't why I wan a fan of Ollie in the comics. In the comics, at least the ones that I read, he's this wise-cracking, know-it-all who too self-righteous for his own good and manages to muck everything up. In this, he's a brooding abercrombie model that can't be with the woman he loves because of his superhero past.

So... yeah... It's a guilty pleasure and if you can get past the horrid first 10 episodes then you'll be entertained, but you're not missing much if you don't watch it.

So to Mee... I can't recommend it to you and Mrs. Mee to watch on your date nights.

lol, yeah, it's funny to read reviews of the first season while aware of what happens in the second.

I am ready to eat crow on this and I'll fully admit that I am wrong if Season 2 is radically better than season 1, but it's hard to see it when the characters are so fundamentally bad. Again, within comic world, it's pretty par for the course. However, and I'm curious on Jake's or Mee's input on this, the difference is that comics have the wonderful ability of being able to lean on the artists that draw them. I.E. The designs and the crazy colorful worlds they create make up for the 2D and hollow characters that populate them because it's awesome to see such crazy shit occur. With Arrow though, it's live action so by that very fact it's imaginative scope is limited to "gritty realism" and it's truely not great till it escapes that box. For example, the black archer. The black archer is fairly ridiculous, but the fights between him and Arrow are great fun. Like I said though it is a live action TV show so it needs "drama" to take up all the time that set-pieces aren't on the screen and the characters are bad.

The internal logic of the show is weird. Arrow's father... "I KILLED A MAN ACCIDENTLY SO NOW I MUST SAVE THE GLADES AS PENNACE" ... Does anyone really think like this? Even the Glades themselves. That's THE BAD PART of TOWN. Now people talk like this sure... Growing up all I ever heard was... "Don't go to South Providence... You'll get Shot." However... You go to SOuth Providence and it's just low-income housing and folks trying to get by. There less likely to mess with you than the people that actually live there. A lot of this stuff just interests me from a writing POV of how and why writers approach things. EML, Andrew, or Draven... Feel free to disagree with any of this.

What I suspect will happen and already has started to happen is simply that now that we've establish these lame characters that we can now watch them grow into their comic book counter parts. We get to see the coming together of Birds of Prey and even the Flash on the series. We get to see the evolution of Roy into sidekick, etc. We've now gone through an entire season of Ollie pining for Laurel that it impossible not to want to see them together. Again... It's not a terrible show and is well structure because set-ups and pay-offs are probably the most important things in genre stories, but I feel it's all a bit hollow.

Again, I like the show and perhaps it's a bit pretencious disecting what is suppose to be a mindless/fun show, but it interests me to do so.

YES ferocia, that one. i don't know why you're having so much trouble with this.
No trouble, just wanted to bother you. :)
Besides on the Hype, it shows her character thread with the name Isabel something.

anyway

dc really went overkill on the "legacy" thing in the '90s

i could happily delete half their son/daughter characters and have no regrets and feel righteous about it
Maybe because I'm more Marvel than DC, but how many son/daughter characters were there?

Considering the show it is.....it's not so bad? And somehow her mask looks better than Deathstrokes.

Also, I have not seen this pic on the Hype at all.

well Flash is basically a "legacy" character, with the tin hat fucker Jay Garrick being like, the father figure to like, Wally West? Or to Bart Allen--who is Barry Allen's...future kid? or future grandson. Or something.


THEN you have Superboy being like, a clone of Superman. Supergirl is Superman's cousin.


THEN you have Damian Wayne (i'm cool with him) but also Tim Drake who DC decided had to ALSO be legally adopted by Batman.


THEN you have this Deathstroke bitch

THEN you have in the Justice Society a zillion of those fuckers. Particularly gay is the son of Wildcat, an old boxer in a panther costume. The son is a werecat, somehow. I don't know how. I don't know how a guy who dressed in a panther suit ended up giving birth to someone who turns into a manimal coincidentally the same as his father's costume.

also in JSA you have a daughter of the fat bitch Red Tornado who has magic wind powers or some shit


also in JSA you have Stargirl who is like a daughter of that old robot dude


and the old goofy Green Lantern has a kid, and there's more.



THEN you have Joker's Daughter


THEN you have Talia al Ghul


THEN you have Huntress who is like an alternate universe daughter of Batman & Catwoman



THEN you used to have an in-continuity son of Zod that Clark and Lois sort of adopted but I think it got wiped out by DC's relaunch


THEN you have Green Arrow's son Connor Hawke


and I'm pretty sure there were a couple Aquamans and one of those is another one's son or some shit. And I don't even know what the deal with Aqualad is.



I'm pretty sure Deathstroke has a son too.



and of course there are more than I can remember right now.

he has 2 sons, one the original Ravager who was killed, second was Jericho. Ravager had the contract on TT first. He died and Deathstroke had to take over the contract. Rose is the second Ravager.

Why does she have an eye patch on?

In her psychosis, she took out her own eye so she could be like her father

Well at least it wasn't a cuhrazee coincidence I guess.


Thanks for filling me in on the lore, of Dumbstroke the Terminatorette.

watched the first ep of this last night


some embarrassing acting and dialogue. and it was rushed through pretty quickly. the fighting looked cool but was silly...but that's ok. it really made me wish they could have filmed fights like that for Buffy the Vampire Slayer 15 yrs ago.:(


dunno how long it'll take me to get fed up with the preposterousness of arrows wrecking people's shit all the time. and how long before i will get sick of dramatic arrow shots.


anyway i'll keep watching. i watched 3 seasons of the OC and 5 seasons of Gossip Girl. i can do this.

I did a good job of posting my thoughts thru the season. Please respond to my posts in sequential order so we can have a weird time warp conversation.

there are so many things i KNOW are going to happen from the first episode set-up


-bond between GA & his bodyguard, leads to reveal of secret identity

-dead sister girl gonna come back

-willa holland doing the speedy drugs thing. i mean, that's not super big or anything, cuz like, they showed her doin/buyin drugs twice in the pilot. BUT i knew that she would be doin drugs BEFORE it happened because willa holland has only ever played one character on tv: teenage girl into drugs and sex. The OC, Gossip Girl, this.


i wanted to bone her so bad on The OC. she was like 15 when she filmed that show. it was an incredible viewing experience. she's worse looking now.

The drugs thing is hilarious. They wrote it in the worst cliche TV kind of way. I'm pretty sure none of the writers on the show have done drugs or been to "the hood."

i dunno how i feel about this eye-paint mask instead of an actual mask. i guess it probably looks less stupid. it's a tv solution.

also how old is this guy who's playing GA. 30+ for sure. still won't be as bad as Tom Welling being 30 and playing high school...
