Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

This a great news! And shows that when you are openly repentent for past words and actions, then you can be seen to be forgiven. Despite being vilified in the court of public opinion.

I have loved both Guardians films, because they have so much Heart to them. They're about a misfit family of misfits, bouncing around the universe, having grand adventures and making mistakes. The break, the reform, they save the galaxy!

The cynic in me says that Gunn was probably never actually fired and instead made a deal with Disney to lay low for a while to wait out the people who stirred up this whole "controversy" in the first place. It would explain a lot that happened in the aftermath of Gunn's firing, like how there were zero rumors of directors meeting with Disney to take over Guardians 3. 

 

That, or (going even further down the rabbit hole) Disney didn't want to risk the president weighing in on the merger with Fox because a bunch of his super fans on Twitter got pissy about Gunn's politics. 

 

Either way, I don't really care. I'm glad he's back. The Guardian movies are fun romps that I've thoroughly enjoyed. 

 

I really hope he still does Suicide Squad 2, though.

At least James Gunn was able to say he was sorry for things that happened years ago, the past is the past now, to quote a monkey, "you can either run from it, or learn from it" and James learnt from it and said he was sorry, unlike some other people in Hollywood! This is good news for the MCU, hopefully the MCU will not impode after End Game, but things will be tough as they try to establish a new set of heroes to be the Avengers as most of the current actors playing the characters will be leaving after End Game but what the future of the MCU holds is anyone's guess and I suspect it be hard for Disney & Marvel to make the money they are likely to make on End Game with other properties for a while.

 

You meant 'learned', not 'learnt'. And the word is 'implode'.

 

 

Next up in the MCU proper X-Men

 

I think F4 comes before X-men, they are likely to make references to mutants and that but X-men, I think will likely be appearing late in phase 4 unless they appear in phase 5, they are likely to want to get the story just right and leave a gap of a few years so that we can get Dark Phoenix out of our systems before bring them back in full force!

 

 

I suspect that Disney will make an attempt at the Fantastic Four before they try one with the X-Men, if only because the latter's had a successful film franchise. Beyond that, it's pretty much a given that we'll get at least one sequel to the Black Panther and Doctor Strange films in the next phase, and we're likely to see a sequel to Captain Marvel as well. And that's ignoring all the other properties Marvel could make a movie for.

You know I'm really happy for Gunn being back but I have to wonder what Mike Cernovich's reaction is gonna be.  Let's find out shall we?

 

It's exactly what you think it is.

 

Mike Cernovich urged Media Matters for America to launch a boycott against Disney on Friday after the announcement that the Mouse House had decided to re-hire James Gunn to write and direct “Guardians of the Galaxy 3.”

“Disney’s rehiring of James Gunn presents an excellent opportunity for Angelo Carusone and Media Matters to show they are principled fighters for social justice,” Cernovich told TheWrap. “I eagerly await joining Media Matters’ boycott of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3.'”

“What James Gunn said is worse than anything Tucker Carlson or anyone else has said. The left doesn’t care and isn’t sincere,” Cernovich tweetedFriday.

As TheWrap previously reported in July 2018, Disney cut ties with Gunn after Cernovich and others uncovered numerous old tweets from the director talking about rape and pedophilia.Reps for Media Matters directed TheWrap to their past reporting on Cernovich’s past remarks. 

The quote from Cernovich is a reference to the liberal watchdog group’s long history of targeting Fox News stars for advertiser boycotts over their on-air remarks and the group’s recent efforts dredging up past embarrassing statements from primetime host Tucker Carlson.

“The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him,” Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios,said in a statement at the time.

Gunn himself also apologized for the remarks, saying in a statement of his own that he had been joking.

“Many people who have followed my career know when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo. As I have discussed publicly many times, as I’ve developed as a person, so has my work and my humor,” Gunn wrote in a series of tweets. “In the past, I have apologized for humor of mine that hurt people. I truly felt sorry and meant every word of my apologies.”

The tweets from Gunn came mostly from a period between 2008 and 2011.

“Expendables is so manly I f–ed the s–t out of the p—y boy next to me,” he wrote in one.

“The best thing about being raped is when you’re done being raped and it’s like ‘whew this feels great, not being raped!'” he wrote in another.

There were many more which have since been deleted.

From the moment they originally dropped Gunn, Disney faced pressure from Hollywood stars — including from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise — to reverse the decision.

Dave Bautista, who stars as Drax in the “Guardians” films, decried the decision saying on Twitter that it was “pretty nauseating” being employed for Disney after it bowed to “a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis.”

“It’s a bitter-sweet conversation — um, no it’s a bitter-bitter conversation because I’m not really happy with what they’ve done with James Gunn,” Bautista said on “The Jonathan Ross Show” in August, 2018. “They’re putting the movie off. It’s on hold indefinitely. To be honest with you I don’t know if I want to work for Disney.”

Bautista did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

 

Not gonna lie, I really thought Cernovich would realize he's been beat and just go do something else.  Instead he's just gonna double down, dig his feet into the ground, and hold his breath until he turns blue.

 

Ironbite-I really feel for the last 3 brain cells he's killing.

nah he was never going to drop it. The entire reason they went after Gunn in the first place was try and hug with the people who support cancel culture and Disney rehiring Gunn back was pretty much what was expected and waited for. Not that its going to really do anything.

The only humorous thing is him taunting Media Matters, since they both exist for the same things (far opposites aside).

 

I hate how political crap gets.  Now it is a game of "Got ya!" played by these guys and many on both sides, and no one cares about context or how people/things have changed since whatever the current "gatcha" is.

 

I'm one that will sit back, see he has apologized, and (so far) have seen nothing of the like since then, so, yeah, he makes great movies, give him a chance.  I would love seeing more of this happen across the board.

 

I just hope GotG3 keeps up with the great 80's music.  I was hoping Captain Marvel would have had more 90's songs, but given the pacing and context, it worked.

It would certainly be interesting if they can intro or at least tease us with Silver Surfer and other such cosmic characters in GOTG before they ever show up in their more traditional settings (e.g. FF and X-Men).

 

Quite frankly, I want to know why all the Infinity Stones were all concentrated within the Milky Way galaxy and not scattered throughout the hundred billion other galaxies in the observable universe.  The MCU has a scale problem that needs to be addressed if they really want to go cosmic.

Feig has said a number of times in the past that he does want a Silver Surfer film, so it is only a matter of time till we see him I think.  That is where we would also likely meet Galactus.  Speaking of which, I doubt he would be an overarching big bad, but having him around would be a very good thing for the MCU. Kang is a similar example, he would be a great villain for one film, but couldn't carry a big arc.

 

They got Doom now , he is the best overarching villain they could hope to get.
