Because that line always cracks me up.

Well, at least Rita's still over-the-top, then...

@  MEDdMI : (30 March 2017 - 03:01 PM)

My friend said it tried to be inspiring and serious, but Rita was too campy and some of the messages might not be good for kids.

Anyone been to the theater to see Power Rangers? How is it?

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 02:24 PM)

Meh, even if it was a real continuation it wouldn't be the same without Tony Jay.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 02:05 PM)

I don't want to see it be a trainwreck and crash and burn, because if it does that's probably it for ReBoot in any form for another decade or even longer. I'm just frustrated as ReBoot is one of the few things I like as much as Transformers.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:50 PM)

Fun fact: one of the actors for the main kids lied on his resume that he knew how to skate. He actualy doesn't. They had to choose between reshooting all his scenes with somebody else, getting a stunt or... just not having him skate at all.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:49 PM)

A close friend of mine has been working on that show for almost a year now. He's told me lots of things that filled me with excitement about how baffled the internet will be about it. It's gonna be a great trainwreck.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:37 PM)

Given all the advancements in computing since the end of the original series, how they've spread through every facet of our lives they could tell some great stories within the existing ReBoot universe... Instead they're going for Power Rangers meets Tron.

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 12:21 PM)

That's... That's not ReBoot. That's... That's a bad Tron rip-off.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Well, the ReBoot revival sounds positively dire.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 02:20 PM)

They were all in Tahiti that day, oh, and those days too, but they totally know someone who was there.

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 01:37 PM)

Supposedly one of Mainframe's friends died during AHM, so presumably they were THERE, just, like, off-panel.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 12:12 PM)

Additionally, Skywatch was rushed; it took them 23 years to learn how to control Ravage and Laserbeak, and they didn't even have a year to try and get the Dynobots under control.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:58 AM)

Presumably dealing with other problems-The military was already routed to NYC before the blackout. And a counter terrorism unit is not something you have deal with an alien menace-it was Skywatch's purview, and even then, their problems started occurring only a year after Joes formation.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:57 AM)

I think the only way I would buy a Gi-Joe comic would be if they were paired up with the monsterbots.

@  Evac : (28 March 2017 - 11:55 AM)

Nah, the Monsterbots had that covered.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:43 AM)

Where were they when poop was hitting the fan with the Machination? You've got giant robot monsters battling in the open with an army of human controlled robot weapons... Maaaaybe that's the kind of thing they should have intervened in given how Skywatch failed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 11:37 AM)

There was a major coordinated military presence outside New York during AHM. Where was the elite special task force?

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:24 AM)

Well there was also Soundwave disrupting all communications so no one could coordinate and also Starscream killed the President, and everyone else on Air Force One, who were probably some of the few who actually knew about their existence

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:21 AM)

If your country is being torn apart by aliens, you use every tool at your disposal and two years before AHM still puts them in existance around the time of the Machination who were very much the kind of problem they should have been dealing with.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:10 AM)

IDW Joe was a top secret anti-terrorism unit made up of specialists. Not really "repelling an invasion force" material, plus they were formed two years before AHM

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 10:58 AM)

The Avengers were all Skrulls or something at the time

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:45 AM)

It happened just like Spidey and SHIELD turned up in the original G1 comics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:35 AM)

I try to forget that Avengers thing ever happened. I mean, aside from a throwaway line in Spotlight: Ramjet, it never comes up again anyway.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 10:29 AM)

They would have been #1 on the Presidents speed dial to deal with the problems caused by Skywatch losing control of the Transformers in their care.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Don't forget the Avengers. Megatron must have culled metahumans before AHM. Picture him personally tearing Spider-man in two.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:18 AM)

You'd think they would've intervened the time Megatron took over New York.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 08:25 AM)

I really don't care for Gi-Joe being retconned into sharing the same universe as Transformers, There have been too many Joe free events in America for them to have existed all along.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 March 2017 - 07:53 AM)

And now he gets to be a member of hugging G.I. Joe.

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 06:46 AM)

I don't think anyone was ever supposed to like him

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 06:36 AM)

To be fair, Costa at least had the self-awareness to turn Spike into a villain when he realised that nobody liked him.

@  Jalaguy : (28 March 2017 - 05:17 AM)

And the "lol idgaf" approach to making itself part of the existing universe is stupid. They could have pivoted to be more G1-cartoon-y without throwing so much worldbuilding out the window for no reason.

What a world we live in where we can actually reasonably speculate that Hourman might be in a live action tv show.


This year is his 75th anniversary too, so it took long enough. I do wonder which version they'd do. I assume Rick (just a great grandson now), but with Ivo being involved I don't feel I can quite rule out Hourman III, even though Arrowverse Ivo wasn't quite into that like the comics (or not so far, I'm still finishing up S2). Rex would be possible, but they're already drowning in scientist heroes, so I figure Rick would be the most likely.

Dr Mid-Nite would also be perfect. Never been done as Live-Action, he's a rarity in that he's ACTUALLY a doctor, which would come in super-handy for everyone else. I'm talking about the modern version, Dr Pieter Cross, not the original. Using the modern version also means they can play around with a possible love triangle plot, as in the comics Dinah dated Dr Mid-Nite for a large chunk of the time while Oliver was dead. He's also a pretty cool looking character.

Here's the character info from casting calls. Spoiler material, I guess, though it's only descriptions, no names.


One does sound like Kendra Saunders, but I don't know if that'd be possible. Hawkman on Smallville was pretty bad. The wings were terrible. I wonder if she'd make it onto Arrow and hook up with Roy. IF that is her. Description fits perfectly, but it fits just as perfectly for Wildcat II. Wouldn't have thought of her except for Scav mentioning her in the Arrow thread. I'd say she's the far likelier candidate.

There's also a line from Caity Lotz, if you consider that a spoiler too.

My guesses would be Booster Gold, Hawkgirl, and Static.

 

I'm still not sure what the deal is with Caity Lotz.

Except, Booster was on Smallville, so he violates the "never on tv" clue.

 

DC might not own the rights to Static anymore...the whole Milestone 2.0 thing is throwing questions that way.

 

I've seen some speculation that the latina woman could be be Yolanda Montez, Wild Cat II, or Bea Decosta, Fire.

I don't put much stock in the "never been on TV before" thing. It seemed like an offhand comment from the network, rather than from Berlanti or Johns. Keep in mind there are probably going to be a lot more DCU characters on this too, it's not necessarily these three that would fit that bill.

I think the other live-action Static project is probably more of a problem. It seems different to the other movie/TV examples to me, although this would be a more mature version of the character.

It's sad that so few characters come to mind, even with such a generic description.

It could be Black Lightning, as that one site mused. John Stewart would fit that general description too.

I still think its Fury. By day she tries to fit in with society and by night she's Fury.

 

Although Fire would be pretty awesome.

As Fire has been one of my favorite characters (what can I say, it was the Adam Hughes JLI which introduced me to a lot of DC), I'd like to see her, but really only if they go the all out glamourous super model/super spy version of her, which would likely not fly in todays...culture.

Why wouldn't it fit? Fire would fill the ethnic quota too. She'd also fit the idea of it being a lgbt related team of heroes.

The only problem is having both her and Firestorm being redundantly flame themed ish.

Hehe, I remember the sexual innuendo Hawkgirl Shayera made over Flash mooning over Fire in that JLU ep. Something like "... You like her? I heard she is... Brazilian...". and they were glancing at Fire while she was together with Ice, haha.

And im just joking about the new team being gay in-universe. It was really more about the actors involved, sorry.

I'm actually not that torn up about that. Robbie Amell is a fairly limited actor, and I don't think he's been all that great as Ronnie. If they end up going with Jason in the new show I'm fine with that.

They didn't say he was left off for any bad reason just that they 'can't say why'. Perhaps a plot point?
