Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

Just a rumor right now:

http://screencrush.c...hare_mobile_top

I'd love it for this to be true. I really love the Hulk (own every issue) and I've realy enjoyed the Thor movies. They're among my favorite Marvel films.

Now sure, In my dreams I'd give the Hulk another solo film (based on Peter David's classic Gamma Bomb story vs the Leader and Sheild) but barring that this could be really fun. Marvel loves doing different genre-bending versions of the superhero story. A Thor & Hulk buddy film would be absolutely awesome. :)


-ZacWilliam, in my dream Hulk films I'd also do a Grey Hulk film and Pantheon Hulk film, spin a She-Hulk off of one of those and only then the often speculated Planet Hulk, but that all seems unlikely so I guess I'll just dream of a Hulk out of water in Asgard Thor/Hulk buddy flick for now. :)

This could be, if true, really make Thor Ragnarok really cool.

I too would like one or more solo Hulk films. Except i would really prefer they steer well clear of Planet Hulk. I've just always found the idea of the best and brightest "Heroes" declaring the Hulk too unstable for Earth, and then shooting him off into space makes the good guys far less noble than i like.

I feel like you could do the bulk of Planet Hulk without that. Maybe Loki drops him there after Ragnarok or Thanos flings him there in one of the Infinity movies. Or someone does something that sends him on a rampage like the Witch did and they have no choice. I think the movies change enough parts of stories that you could make it work without making Tony and company terrible jerks.

-ZacWilliam, all that said, I honestly prefer Peter David Hulk which is what I'd really love to see on screen...

I remember someone trying to convince me that GotG2 was going to be the stealth Planet Hulk movie.

 

Anywho, there's a lot of rumors flying around about the Marvel stuff in the wake of NYCC (Inhumans is canceled!  Inhumans isn't canceled and Vin Diesel will be Black Bolt!  Iron Fist is canceled!) so I'd take this one with a grain of salt.  Ragnarok can easily be busy enough event for a film without tossing in the Hulk too.

 

And, and just in case you guys didn't know, Universal has the distribution rights to Hulk films (and Namor films too, apparently.)  So basically Marvel could make a Hulk (or Namor) film, and they would own it and the IP, but Universal would control distribution, meaning they would need to get a cut of the profits.  That's believed to be the main reason Marvel hasn't gone through with a new Hulk film as of yet.

Hulk among the Asgardians actually makes some sense, that's a pretty clever idea.  On the other hand, Banner makes a little less sense, although I guess he can pal around with Stellan Skarsgard in between fight scenes?  (I just realized that Thor spends so much time giving exposition that his relationship with the other Avengers isn't very well-defined.)

It's a good way to give us a Hulk-centric movie alongside a Thor movie-- Thor movies tend to be slightly weaker at the box office, but give us an Avengers 2.75 (Civil War is 2.5)? Money money boo-bah.

 

Also, Mark Ruffalo is an infinitely better casting choice than Ed Norton. No contest.

 

It'll also be a Planet Hulk movie in everything but name at this point, given Thor's cosmic attachment. Maybe give us a lead-in to Guardians 2, in the bargain (or vice versa? Which is out first?).

Guardians 2 is May of 2017, Thor 2 is November of the same year. (It was July but then the Spider-Man thing happened.)

 

Slapping Planet Hulk and Ragnarok together would be a bad idea, IMO.  Planet Hulk is a very personal story at it's core; about the Hulk being betrayed, abandoned and stranded on the other side of the Universe where he ultimately finds a place where not only is he accepted, but where he can accept the fact that he's accepted.  While you could probably substitute Asgard for Sakaar in that story, I think it takes something away if Thor is there palling around with him. (And if Thor ISN'T palling around with him, then I think the Hulk would be a bad fit for a movie called "Thor: Ragnarok." in the first place :D)

 

Also, Ragnarok itself will need to take up a lot of screentime, so I'm not sure you can really do justice for both Planet Hulk and Ragnarok in a single 2.5 hour film.

I don't actually expect it to be Planet Hulky at all.
I expect it I be a Thor film with a "Buddy Picture/Fish out of Water" hulk element thrown in for fun,

-ZacWilliam, having the hulk in it is going to be less than some folks imagine. Mostly I think it'll tie up the Thor/King Loki story and the hulk will just just be a smaller side part of that story.

Perhaps, if they do set up a Planet Hulk film, instead of it being the Avengers who ship Hulk off-planet and that's why Hulk feels betrayed by them, maybe he could be shipped off-planet by a villain and his feelings of betrayal could be based on how his allies failed to save him/chose to stop a bigger threat first that prevented them from saving him. In his mind, he could view their actions as their having abandoned him instead of their failure to save him actually having been something beyond their control.

Ragnarok probably won't set up a Planet Hulk movie, if for no other reason than I doubt Marvel is going to shoe-horn in ANOTHER film before Infinity War, and Hulk will almost certainly show up there.  Afterwards we might see something, but Marvel would still need to work things out with Universal regarding distribution rights, and ultimately, Marvel has a TON of other characters who they could make a film about without needing to come to an agreement.

Honestly, this is the movie that needs to setup Thanos as a powerhouse and a full fledged character, and not just some posturing, idle guy.

 

I highly imagine a scenario where Thanos is going to take advantage of Loki's takeover to grab the Infinity stone residing in Asgard.      I'm assuming Thor eventually finds out Loki is pretending to be the All Father, brings in Bruce for obvious reasons, and then right before Loki gets another looney tune pounding....boom.   Thanos shows up and goes all Ragnorok on Asgard, requiring the three powerhouses to join forces to try to get rid of Thanos, but ultimately lose.       It would be also a get setup for something to happen with the Nova Corps in GotG2 (whether it's just a cameo thing or part of the movie itself, who knows, but there's going to be something to setup Infinity Wars).

Cool cast and cool new characters. I love the Thor movies and I love the Hulk so this should be a lot of fun.

Love seeing the concept art of Hela. Love the idea of Goldblum as that character. Love another female Marvel character. Really neat to hear we're getting Executioner at last.
