Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

I also remember seeing somewhere (can't remember where so no source), that this was 'it' as far as avengers movies go.
 
Not to say we won't get cross over, but certainly the Avengers movies are done.

 
 
 
but the actress isn't sitting well with many people including her Co-stars for End Game.
 
 
Source?

This. A reputable source, or GTF off this tangent of yours.

And cosmic-book news? Not a reputable source. That site us a misogynistic joke, so if that's where you're getting your info, don't bother.

 

His source is himself.. 

 

 

According to CBR..  https://www.cbr.com/...emale-avengers/


While filming was underway on Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, it was revealed that Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Tessa Thompson and Brie Larson all approached Feige about an A-Force/Lady Liberators-type film. And despite nothing have come it yet, they did state Feige seemed generally interested in their ideas.

 

And the only thing I can find about the cast 'not liking her' are jokes on late night and youtube videos from butt hurt in-cels.

Same here. I just did a google crawl, just to be sure, and checked out some articles from several sites, and none of them featured comments about displeased co-stars. In fact, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, and Samuel L. Jackson had all worked with her before she became part of the MCU. 

 

The hate is, as I suspected, coming from the loud, sad contingent of sexist keyboard-warriors.

Question - Has anyone seen Marvel address She-Hulk at all. My brother asked me if she was part of the same situation with the Hulk where if he headlines a movie disney has share the proceeds. I told him not as far as I know but I also said I don't think I've ever heard Marvel talk about her rights at all and wether they are tied to her cousin.

-ZacWilliam, she'd be the first on my list if Marvel ever did a "New Avengers" down the line. I'd probably go Black Knight, Crystal, She-Hulk, Hercules, Beast and Justice and Firestar.

Hulk has a pre-existing deal with Universal from back in the pre MCU dark ages. Marvel/Disney has the rights to use him in movies, but if they do a "Hulk" movie, where it's *his* film, Disney has to let Universal distribute it and share the proceeds with that company. (Which is largely why that hasn't happened in the MCU.)

Those sorts of deals tend to be for Character Families (Sony had the FF and related characters the FF Family.) My brothers question was whether She-Hulk as a "Hulk family" character was covered under those Universal rights.

-ZacWilliam, could Marvel/Disney do a She-Hulk film without Universal's distribution or would they only be able to include her in films she wasn't headlining...

Apparently Hulu just announced Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes) and Damian Hellstorm TV Shows so I guess they're off the table for possible Movies for now. Not that they were high on my list, but Ghost Rider was always possible.

 

 

ZacWilliam, that puts Cloak and Dagger, Runaways, SHEILD, Ghost Rider, Hellstorm, and maybe Squirrel Girl and the New Warriors (although I expect that to possibly be dead) off limits for the moment to Movies. I expect Disney would shy away from rebooting any of the Netflix stuff for films anytime soon either (so Daredevil, Heroes for Hire, Jessica Jones, Punisher, and maybe the name "Defenders") Plenty of more things that are open for use, just interesting to know what's likely not on the list.

So following the line of the last post I sorta started wondering what Marvel had left in the tank. I mean yeah, there are a million characters, but leads that could support a film, I wasn't really sure.

So I went over to the Marvel Comixology app and just scrolled through the archive for Marvel characters that have been leads in a book. I left Spidey stuff out (because Sony) and X-men and FF family books (cause those are obvious and coming) and anyone who has already been in the MCU or related TV shows. The Marvel app is hardly comprehensive but it's got enough stuff to at least give me an idea.

Here's what I got:

Hercules
She-Hulk
Darkhawk
Sleepwalker
Blue Marvel
Monsters Unleashed (Kid Kaiju)
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
Iron Heart
Ms Marvel
Champions (Young Hero team)
Man-Thing
Sentry
Agents of Atlas
Alpha Flight
Invaders
Nova
American Dream
Young Avengers
Angela
Quasar
Silver Surfer
Deathlok (modern version)
Avengers Academy
Tigra
Black Knight
Avengers Next
Pet Avengers
West Coast Avengers
Blade
Bloodstone
Machine Man
Captain Britain
Thunderbolts
Ares
Dark Avengers
The Hood
Death's Head
Doom
Gravity
Great Lakes Avengers
Gwenpool
Howard the Duck
Namor
Kazar
Kilraven
Legion of Monsters
Lockjaw
Machine Teen
Moon Knight
Next Wave
Howling Commandos (Monster Team)
Squadron Supremes
Nighthawk
Omega the Unknown
The Order
Hellcat
Power Pack
Ravage 2099
Rawhide Kid
Red Wolf
Sentinel
Shanna the SheDevil
Skull the Slayer
Spider-woman
Starbrand
Terror Inc
Adam Warlock
Thunderstrike
USAgent
Union Jack
Werewolf by Night
Weirdworld
Wonder Man

So that's at least 70 properties at a very cursory incomplete glance. I'm sure there are plenty of things not on there.


-ZacWilliam, Now I'm not saying all of these would make a good movie, but I think maybe any of them COULD with the right approach. It'll be interesting to see where Marvel goes.

I wasn't sure she was part of the Spidey rights or not as the character traditionally has absolutely nothin to do with Spider-man and no connection at all to his world.

-ZacWilliam, I mean I can totally see how she could get lumped in there cause of the name but the name is pretty much the only connection.

Yeah, I'm not sure.

 

Makes me wonder where Spider-Gwen falls too.

 

As I would think she would have been either with Sony or Fox, but at least Disney has the Fox side taken care of.

 

Unless she falls into her own thing despite being part Spiderman character part X-Men character.

Did you mean Gwenpool?

 

That's a tough one. The "idea" of her being named "Gwen" came IRL from Gwen Stacy but she is not Gwen Stacy. Not even an alternate version. She's just an entirely different girl who happens to be named Gwen Poole. Likewise her "hero" name being "Gwenpool" and the look of her costume were both inspired "in the real world" by Deadpool but the character herself has absolutely nothing to do with Deadpool at all origin or fiction wise.

 

So I have no idea how that works rights wise when on the one hand she was created "because" of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool but in actuality has nothing to do with them besides that inspiration. And on top of that she was created well after those rights were "sold."

 

-ZacWilliam, I would assume she's fair game, but who knows...

Howard the Duck has appeared in the GotG movies, and Adam Warlock has been set up in those same movies (we know he's around, but we haven't seen him yet).

And I know it doesn't mean anything anymore, but Deathlok and Lockjaw have both turned up on TV (in Agents of SHIELD and Inhumans, respectively).

I was wondering how long it would take for this exact post.  ;) 

 

Yes I totally broke my own rules. Howard was a cameo, Adam is just a set up so fair game for a list of folks they could do for a film, that was a different Deathlok than the current one and Lockjaw's just a good, good puppy who should be in more things.  :)

 

 

-ZacWilliam, there are a couple other on there that are "sorta"/almost rule breakers but eh I just wanted a rough idea of the pool Marvel had left..
