@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

Grain of salt time, folks!

 

via: http://nikkifinke.com/comic-con/

 

We know that Warner Bros Pictures is way behind Marvel Studios when it comes to making movies out of its comic book properties. But I have intel on what is coming up at this July’s  Comic-Con from the studio. A lot of stuff remains in flux  but my sources have so far:

 

May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

 

There had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.

 

 

 

 

Awesome "inside sources" aside, it looks like a pretty full slate for Warner, with three movies each year. Too much product too fast? Where is the solo Batman film? Are they shoehorning Sandman into the DCFU, when he really has no place being there? Will anyone actually go see a Flash v. Green Lantern movie?

 

I guess all these questions and more will be answered at Comic Con.... IN July!

Lol. DC-F-U.

Either way that certainly is ambitious but not too out of the ordinary seeing as Marvel has 2 movies a year and they're playing catch up. We'll see I guess.

Great that there's a Wonder Woman movie I guess, but overall I'm not sure if any of those interest me. 

Not really sure which DC heroes I'd really be interested in seeing a movie of. Maybe Teen Titans?

For whatever it's worth, a few years ago I had no interest in seeing a movie about Iron Man, and little interest in Thor or Captain America. About the only Marvel characters I did have any real interest at all in were the X-Men, Spider-Man, and the Hulk.

 

Granted, I'm not ready to make the leap to thinking these will turn out to be as pleasantly surprising, but I'm not ready to discount any of them either.

I think Green Lantern/Flash has the potential to be cool, but for me it will kind of depend on who is wearing the ring.

If a Green Lantern/Flash movie isn't about John Stewart and Wally West, and based primarily on their DCAU versions, then there is no point whatsoever to such a film.

Isn't he a sparkly vampire now in the Nu52?
 

If a Green Lantern/Flash movie isn't about John Stewart and Wally West, and based primarily on their DCAU versions, then there is no point whatsoever to such a film.

I only dislike Barry due to them ditching Wally to bring him back. Though there's elements of the characters that could be added to movie versions of the characters.

The problem with the Nu52 is that it's trying too hard to be gritty and "serious" that they aren't worth being taken seriously anymore. DCAU would be an excellent start but they'll be insistent on using Nu52. Thing is, they really need to take a step back and figure out what actually works. That's probably the biggest shame, the reboot didn't have to be as terrible as it has been.

I see Wonder Woman as "took you long enough". Shazam is a good or terrible choice, pending on how they handle his personality. Aquaman still needs a movie.

The biggest problem with the reboot is "we'll reset numbering to get sales!" is the extent of the thought they put into it.

 

Turns out you need a smidge more planning.

Granted, I'm not ready to make the leap to thinking these will turn out to be as pleasantly surprising, but I'm not ready to discount any of them either.

In fairness, though, our first pair of Marvel Studio films were Iron Man and Incredible Hulk, and it was the success (critically and financially) that made us interested in MCU as a whole.

 

DC, on the other hand, has NEVER shown any real vision to such an idea UNTIL Marvel reaped a few billion dollars from their films, and now are trying to "me too" it without half the thought or planning. Hell, Man of Steel wasn't (as far as I know) supposed to be a "universe foundation" until Avengers made a billion dollars and DC realized "oh crap, we got half a dozen heroes here, we need to do our OWN Avengers!" (Which amuses me when one considers the origins of the Avengers in the comic world).

 

Discounting the Nolan Batman series, I've yet to see ANYTHING from DC to make me particularly optimistic about the future projects.  Most either try WAY too hard to epically epic, copy the grim and realistic Nolan work, or too much world building without guarantee it will pay off.  And the fact Neil Gaiman's Sandman is on tap as a "DC Feature Film" just proves to me that they really don't have a clue to what they are doing (though, I wonder if Shazam and Sandman aren't an attempt to move the DC series into more magic, rather than the cosmic angle Marvel used.  At least until Dr. Strange comes out).

Long and short, they haven't made particularly good stand alone movies, much less "world builders", and nothing they've done has made me change that view.  Marvel has done enough good I'll give Guardians of the Galaxy far more a shot than I'm willing to give Shazaam or Wonder Woman at this stage.

I think their main problem is less of a lack of an Iron Man and rather a lack of a Blade. While the current connected movie universe started with with IM, Blade is what got Marvel rolling so that they could do Spider Man, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four. As said, DC needs more good standalone movies before their universe sticks and they need to potentially pass off a C or D lister to another studio to help build hype. Outside of animation, there's been an abnormal lack of use of their characters. And it's particularly bad for a few like Wonder Woman who are in a bit of a vicious circle where they wonder why the character has been steadily losing respect even though they don't push the character or only make shortsighted changes.
