And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 05:41 PM)

See, you say that and you know there's new a bubsy game coming. Don't make us keep re-baselining our horror reactions.

@  Sean Whitmore : (23 June 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Its a really great show.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 06:16 AM)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:06 PM)

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Indeed. Especially on opening week. We're talking avg, 5-8%. It's more at your discount/sub-run houses.

AMC knows it, freakin $7 for a regular drink

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:12 AM)

Can't blame the theater totally for those ticket prices. The studios have a say in them as well.

@  Noideaforaname : (22 June 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Charge 'em for the lice! Extra for the mice! Two percent for looking in the mirror twice!

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:45 PM)

Even here in Canada where price gouging is commonplace, IMAX 3-D is still $19.50

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:44 PM)

$27 a ticket? That's ludicrous

Plus, giving the Joker a definitive origin kind of undoes a lot of what makes the Joker so remarkable these days, since he has no real set origin story.

 

Well, the current "Zero Year" arc in the New 52 might not sit too well with you, then...

 

I checked out before New52 ever began, so it's a non-issue to me, as I imagine it would be to most viewers since a big number for comic sales now is, what 300,000?  Put that against the actual millions of people watching TV and I am very much not alone.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Lots of on set shots:

http://www.dailymail...set-Gotham.html

 

I don't like huge 'for the sake of coincidence' coincidences in my fiction, so I'm not thrilled that it seems like Bruce and Selena know each other. I hope they just cross paths and leave it at that.

 

With the actress that plays Catwoman it seems like they're going for a 'young Michelle Pfeiffer' look for her since she has a similar facial structure and her eyes are spaced far apart.

Their biggest mistake is casting kids for Bruce and any other reoccurring character (assuming they're reoccurring) because kids grow up fast.

 

Hopefully this is all just in the pilot to really kick it off with Bruce's parents being killed.

There is nothing pointing to Bruce and Selena knowing each other (that I'm aware of) other than a picture of the two actors standing together.

 

They are planned as reoccurring characters as one elements of the series is Jim Gordon's concern over the orphan left over from his first big case in Gotham, the death of the Waynes. Selena is a troubled street kid apparently.

I hope they're making this Bullock the DCAU/Arkham series version of the character instead of the comic books version. Still no Harlene Quinzel or Jack Napier, but I can't imagine they'd possibly leave the childhood incarnations of these characters out.

 

....

 

Part of me kinda hopes this doesn't mess up the continuity of Smallville so that they can leave open the possibility to do a crossover episode with Tom Welling someday.

Eventual origin of the Joker has been mentioned.

Bullock has been described as a break the rules to enforce the law rough type.

 

...Tom Welling will be in his early to mid 40s by the time the kid is old enough to even be a first year Batman. Besides which, Smallville was a CW licensed show. Gotham is a Fox licensed show.

Not to mention that Bruce/Batman has already made frequent appearances in the Smallville Season 11 comics, which appear to be canon to the show.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I will say that if Bullock is a major player, and played well, I will probably just watch this for him. Bullock's has become one of my favorite supporting characters in the franchise.

Donal Logue is often good.

Something I posted on another board...wondering of thoughts here:

 

 

That's an interesting point you hint around. This isn't a show on the CW. Fox is a big boy network and a show has to get decent ratings to survive. (And this isn't the fanboy "fox hates sci-fi shows" conspiracy crap...like they invest millions of dollars so the show can fail).

The show has to thread the needle of being a good cop show, inventive enough so people will watch it, but not SO different from the safe stuff they like because they're mainstream TV audiences. Bring in the comic book stuff, but not so much that it turns off or scares or confuses the mainstream folks. Make sure people know this isn't Batman the series...but at the same time make people want to turn in because it's totally Batman the series.

It doesn't have the lax atmosphere of CW to operate in, or the integrated corporate support SHIELD has. FOX is surely paying a pretty penny for the rights to do this show, so from a tv business side, there's some interesting hurdles to jump over.

Has to be Bullock - not only looks like him but well, he has a police badge - I don't think DA's have those. :)

 

I hate Smallville, but I like Arrow - so hoping this will not mess too much with established characters, it could be good. I just hope they leave Bruce and Alfred on the sidelines and don't make Gordon into someone who shapes Bruce into Batman, as that'd be silly. Bruce has to grow up, and leave to travel the world anyway, eventually.

 

Hope the Penguin will look the part. I don't want a Burton-esque guy, but he should be short and with a long nose, being NOT handsome is kind of a defining factor as to why he became bitter at the world.
