Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

So I guess I shouldn't try to tie in The Room.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2019 - 02:29 PM)

I was just talking cheesy in a dated filmmaking sense, not mind-bogglingly god-awful.

@  Sabrblade : (16 May 2019 - 11:49 AM)

Well, certainly The Last Airbender is worse at being a Superman movie.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 May 2019 - 11:31 AM)

Is that better or worse than The Last Airbender? I mean, they're both terrible, but....

@  RichardT1977 : (16 May 2019 - 09:28 AM)

And the worst Superman movie is "Dragonball: Evolution".

@  Paladin : (16 May 2019 - 08:01 AM)

the best Superman movie is "The Iron Giant." You cannot convince me otherwise.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 10:16 PM)

At least even in the first Christopher Reeve movie, when he caught Lois that first time, the background kept scrolling down for a second to indicate it wasn't a sudden stop.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 10:10 PM)

I guess you had to have been there. I did like the beginning a lot, though; the stuff on Krypton and in Smallville. The movie just got so cheesy once it got to Metropolis, though, it's kind of painful

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 May 2019 - 06:25 PM)

The performances, the cinematography, the significance of a comic book adaptation being treated like a real movie. Silly stuff like that. :)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 05:17 PM)

Yeah, I've never really understood what people loved so much about it. Other than the score, of course, which was one of Williams' finest

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

and it's not even the dumbest part in that movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 03:16 PM)

Flying Lois around was fine; it was all the Can You Read My Mind nonsense that ruined the scene

@  Sabrblade : (15 May 2019 - 12:08 PM)

The recent Shazam! movie had Billy bumbling his way through learning his powers. But all or most of it was genuinely funny.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:27 AM)

But yeah, in retrospect it makes me cringe the way he caught and carried the helicopter in his public debut in the first film...

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

(she wasn't in III long enough to be flown around)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

You mean the Donner movie, the Donner/Lester movie, and The Quest for Peace (for which I don't know the director)?

@  unluckiness : (15 May 2019 - 11:09 AM)

At least he didn't try to fly lois around like in the Donner movies.

@  Cybersnark : (15 May 2019 - 10:45 AM)

My favourite is still from the first episode of the 90s Superman animated series, where Clark initially tries to catch the falling plane by its tail... which snaps off in his hands because physics doesn't work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (15 May 2019 - 09:46 AM)

I think it'd be boring if a hero could use their powers perfectly right off the bat and not have any unforseen consequences (though I also don't keep up with a lot of superhero stuff, so not familiar with those scenes)

@  Dekafox : (15 May 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Overseas, Kamen Rider Gaim did something similar after Kouta(the main character) got his transformation belt. He tried to do a whole bunch of mundane things with it cause he thought it'd make him better at them and they all go horribly wrong.

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 08:59 AM)

superspeed causes enormous friction on fabric. the 1990 Flash had the same issue and it was mentioned in "The Incredibles" too...

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:45 AM)

Arrow didn't have one (though Oliver got hurt a lot in flashbacks), Supergirl already had her powers, LoT gang also already had their powers mostly and in Black Lightning discovering your powers seems to be more associated with emotional trauma than anything comedic

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:43 AM)

In the Arrowverse shows... I guess The Flash accidentally ran so fast he shredded his clothes? (totally not a chance to showcase Grant Gustin's "I'm not Glee kid anymore!" physique)

?!?

I didn't think about an MCU Armor Wars that involves Dr. Doom! That would rock! (Wait, wrong element. That would be Metal!). Buuuuut it wouldn't be right without Tony. I suppose Morgan could take the lead though, that would be cool.

 

Honestly, after watching the MCU do a character like Thanos justice (Even worked in hints of his Death worship in Endgame with him not being disturbed by his own decapitation..."Destiny fulfilled" and all that), I just REALLY want to see the MCU finally do Doom properly.

Btw, I'm sure other folks would have noted it already but, on the action figure front, where is FAT THOR?!

And what the hex is this misleading piece of plastic? It shows the Titan Hero Series Thor in his time heist suit and he's NOT FAT!



Must be like the fake trailers and stuff. Thor looks cool in the heist suit but... not movie accurate.

A casual Fat Thor in-action figure would be pretty nifty.

 

Purposeful misdirection and not providing those producing product all the details of the movie.

One of those things I didn't think about until now. Man having the worlds population double overnight is going to have some massive repercussions for Earth. I mean they had 5 year without them.. There isn't going to be the infrastructure to support that kind of population anymore, at least not right away. Like they wouldn't be growing the same amount of crops and livestock. Polution is going to suddenly skyrocket as well.

 

Then there are the people who moved on and found new loves but have their old ones back. People who couldn't move on and now their returned companions will find them gone.

 

Might have actually been better to just leave it be in the end. Realistically the un-snappening would wreck shit all over again.

Wakanda tech ought to stay Wakanda tech.

 

Although, an Armor Wars event that sees Stark-tech go native that ends up being the result of a cyber attack from a unassuming Eastern European Dictatorship like say...Latveria?

 

I can dig it.  And especially with the MCU impact that what we're dealing with is Tony's LEGACY rather than his copyrights.

 

 

 

 

 

Let's be honest, what would Daredevil do in a fight like that? Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, heck even the Punisher I could see...but DD? As much as I love DD he'd get torn to shreds in seconds.

 
Oh please. If Okoye, Natasha, M'Baku, and Clint can fight those battles in Infinity War and Endgame, than DD could too. 
 
 
All of those rely less on fists than Dare Devil does.

Turn that around. They all rely on their weapons more than Daredevil does. Matt can always pick up a sword or piece of rebar. His strength is that he's honed his body itself into a weapon, and that's doesn't always have to rely on a traditional weapon.

 

 

He has to rely on a traditional weapon when he is fighting Thanos monsters.

Kevin Feige did an AMA with Reddit and may have teased something for the Shang-Chi movie.

 


Recently, there have been rumblings that Shang-Chi will find a way to incorporate The Mandarin (the real one) and the Ten Rings. Asked if there are plans in place for either of those to be touched on in the MCU moving forward after the Iron Man franchise failed to really delve into it, all Kevin Feige would say is "Yes." Take that as you will, but it sounds like fans of the villain will finally be happy.

 

 

 

aka "we're doing the Mandarin so fanboys will shut up about Iron Man 3 finally."

 

Also, "sorry about Iron Fist" I'd guess...

I mean, the Mandarin at the time of Iron Man 3 was still pretty far fetched from an MCU standpoint. They'd only just done Avengers and introduced the Chitauri, and the Asgardians were being marketed as a advanced, alternate-alien species.

 

The idea that the Mandarin got ten rings of power from a crashed spaceship of alien dragons would have been a bit of an escalation in the world building. But Post-GotG and Ragnarok? Yeah, the MCU is ready for the Mandarin.

Actually that's a valid point. Mandarin's rings of power would have been a legitimate game changer in the fight against Thanos, and it's not technology that you can just poof away after a film like Extremis was. The rings themselves have been established as being a power in and of themselves.
