@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:33 AM)

I can dig it

@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:21 AM)

So Thunderbolts with giant robots?

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:22 PM)

Thundercracker, in particular.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:21 PM)

Some of the Decepticons start to really enjoy being the good guys. Well, they enjoy the act, at least. They find fulfillment in their assumed personas.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:20 PM)

Except SHockwave eventually betrays his teammates and teams up with Skynet.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:20 PM)

Starscream becomes the young, eager Nightscream, and so on.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

Megatron becomes the noble Megabolt, taking cues from Beast Wars Silverbolt.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

A Thunderbolts-esque masquerade.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

In order to do so, the Decepticons pretend to be the good guys and take on different personas.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:18 PM)

So Megatron decides that hey, the Autobots are stillback on Cybertron, so why not team up with the humans, defeat Skynet, then double-cross the humans?

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

Unfortunately, the Skynet/humans war is already going on, and Skynet is evolving rapidly.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

The Decepticons discover Earth and want to plunder its resources.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

It would have a really crazy twist:

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

I've had this crazy idea for a Transformers/Terminator crossover for years.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:20 PM)

Specifically I'd like to see Skynet's army rise up against him (he did refer to them as an "army of slaves" in Genisys), or even perhaps a peace-minded iteration of Skynet that's existed in a humanoid form long enough to gain some compassion for the human point of view

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:19 PM)

A peaceful resolution would be satisfying for me (it's the only resolution possible in The Matrix series, too), but I think the majority of Terminator fans would walk out think WTF?

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:15 PM)

I liked Clarke as Sarah as well, although I read a lot of complaints online that she looked too young, but I thought she was pretty badass.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 05:11 PM)

I think across these movies, there's a very compelling story about a progressive temporal arms race driven by mutual fear in which Judgement Day keeps getting pushed back, which only gives both sides more time for technological development, and the only true resolution to it is cooperation. But cooperation will never come about because each side fears being wiped out by the other.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2018 - 05:05 PM)

Genisys basically made Sara Connors' entire motivation in stopping judgement day stem from not wanting to sleep with Jai Courtney. and really, can you blame her?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 03:52 PM)

I'll give Genisys another thing, Emilia Clarke made a damn good Linda Hamilton. (As for Jai Courtney looking nothing like Michael Biehn, that just supports my theory that it's not always the same "Kyle Reese" sent back which would explain why John Connor looks different in almost every movie.)

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2018 - 02:54 PM)

I'm not, I'm lost in music.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2018 - 12:59 PM)

What, again?

@  2018 : (18 June 2018 - 06:33 AM)

It's a time warp. We're trapped in the past.

@  Waspinator : (17 June 2018 - 11:03 PM)

On the subject of a Mega Man movie

@  Msol : (17 June 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Man I really wish Slash was blue instead of red. Swoop looks off as the only blue one. What a missed opportunity!

@  Otaku : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 PM)

@Bass X0 So, getting back to Mega Man as a movie and smart-aleck answers, wouldn't Astroboy (2009) count? ;) Otherwise, I'm torn; part of me is glad they haven't tried given Hollywood's track record.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 01:52 PM)

and some TV show...

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2018 - 01:35 PM)

John Connor?! John Connor! JOHN CONNORRRRR!!!!

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 12:26 PM)

Pretty sure that's what happened to John Connor in that last one

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 12:17 PM)

@Nevermore Rice of fhe Macheens: taking over the world with evil robots the size of rice grains.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:36 AM)

It eventually goes off the rails, but the bones of an interesting story are there. I enjoyed it more than Rise of the Machines or Salvation

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 11:26 AM)

There was Genysis, Jujjmend Dae, Salvayshon and Rice of the Macheens, or something.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:25 AM)

I actually re-watched Genisys the other day, and I'll give it one thing. The beginning of the movie with the pre-Terminator 1 future scenes all looked really fantastic.

@  Xellos : (17 June 2018 - 11:08 AM)

Five, actually, with a sixth in development. Varying degrees of cannonicity between them, though.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 07:59 AM)

There was only two movies, right?

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 07:08 AM)

overall, lousy. there's one great one, one pretty good one and everything else under that brand sucks.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 June 2018 - 06:52 AM)

uuuhhh, what do you think the terminator movies are?

@  Bass X0 : (17 June 2018 - 06:35 AM)

Why has Mega Man never been given a Hollywood movie?

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:32 AM)

Considering at least half our workforce is not of "German" descent, racism should really have no place at our workplace.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 AM)

The one thing that really fascinated me was how he was so adamant that his kids have to learn German that he insisted on only speaking German at home. I'm not saying that this is the one true way to do it, but I did respect him for that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:22 AM)

Always cheerful, always friendly. Leaves behind a wife and three kids.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:21 AM)

I'd have done this either way, but in this case it particularly pissed me off because the deceased coworker was literally the nicest person you could possibly hope to meet.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 04:18 AM)

He deserved it to be suspended. What an imbecile.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:17 AM)

****ing disgusting racist.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

Guy was immediately suspended from work.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

He literally said in my face "they only make a big fuss because that token negro died". I said "dude, what are you saying?" He said "my parent taught me to say what I think." I said "bad enough for you to think like that." and then reported him.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:15 AM)

So I told this other longtime employee that I was planning to go to the funeral, and he went on a tirade about how "other people had died too", and this was only treated as a big deal because this guy was black.

Thanks Naas, you had to come back 2 months later to post that? :rolleyes In case you missed, I was reacting to Skankerzero's post, not the link which I did not check at the time yet.

 

New trailer was interesting. I am a bit surprised how un-Gordon-y Gordon looks like - no moustache or glasses? But I guess he is a young man still. Bullock looks great.

Poison Ivy will be in this too? Riddler is played by Cory Michael Smith, never heard of him but he looks the part.

I'm still torn on the basic premise, mostly for all the 'non-villains' we will apparently be seeing. There is just something a bit off putting seeing all those characters this early in a time line. That said, we are getting Gordon at one of his more interesting time periods, still a young cop before he fully realizes just how bad and corrupt things are in Gotham. Plus, we get more Bullock, I still say he's gonna end up being the best thing about this show.

 

But all that said, I do feel like this has promise based on that trailer, all the stuff with young Bruce is 'right' with Gordon being first on scene and being determined to help. It makes sense that he'd be a reoccurring character even at this age; as I can see Gordon being one to check in on him; even if he has a butler, just to make sure he's doing okay. It could really go a ways to help show just why Batman trusts him so much, not just because he was the 'one good, honest cop' in Gotham, but also because Gordon looked out for him and did all he could to help him all those years ago. There is really a lot of character building potential here.

I am looking forward to seeing how Riddler started, for example. We all know the whole "cheating on the test" origin, but a guy as smart as he probably did try to make something of his life before donning the green suit.

My only worry is if all the costumed crime begins waaaaay before Batman appears. 'cause it's usually the other way around, and for good reasons.

Who is the woman in the red dress? (sorry I don't have audio here where I watched the trailer) - Lady Shiva maybe?

 

And good points, Database. Even the Nolan series showed how much Bruce remembers from that night, and how Gordon comforting him meant a lot to him - and why he choose him as his first ally.

Joes Chill is probably not in this - given how they showed the same "robber" at the Wayne manor, I think there will be a deeper mystery about the deaths of the Waynes - certainly they were in the ways of some powerful people in most continuities.

The Fish..or something silly like that...She's the current crime boss of Gotham that Penguin works for.

The trailer looks...surprisingly good. Cop Drama meets Superheroics. Seeing the amount of villains on parade is a bit disappointing though. Cobblepot especially feels miscast here. He's a dead ringer for Alberto Falcone.

 

Similarly, with the cop drama aspect they'd be stupid not to borrow heavily from that genre since so many future Bat villains fit that MO. Julian Day, Holiday, Victor Zasz...

 

Three seasons right there, with the GCPD on the trail of these serial killers.

 

All in all, I'm willing to see where this goes.

I can get behind Penguin and Riddler being part of the narrative, as they've both struck me as a bit older then Bruce (The Arkham games have even go so far as to give Riddler grey hair), but the guy cast as Cobblepot...eh. I suppose that's the point of an origin story. They aren't supposed to be recognizable as the people they become.

 

I just hope they don't get so enamored with the famous Rogues that they neglect the ones that would work beautifully in this set up. Heck, bring in Salvator Valestra from Mask of the Phantasm and his crew. There's no lack of small time crooks and crime bosses for the GCPD to deal with in addition to the "mundane" Serial Killers that are future Bat-foes.

 

Heck, with this sort of set up you could even get The Mad Hatter to work pretty well.

 

EDIT: I do know I would love this show forever if one of the reoccuring small time street gangs was the Crazy Eights. For those drawing a blank, they were shown in an episode of Batman Beyond as a rival crew to the Jokerz.

The cops don't get a handle on these guys though. That's sort of the point of seeing the villains before they became villains bru-ha-ha. Gotham's spiraling out of control, and these guys are the result of that spiral.

Gotham wasn't always a bad place to live, thats something that most stories comment on a few times. Right now it's not sunk into the completely corrupt hellhole it will be. Right now we're seeing how Gotham ends up to the point it needs someone like Batman. The typical Batman villains are either nobodies or small fish. They're not actually dealing with Penquin, Riddler, or Poison Ivy; they're dealing Oswald Cobblepot who's just getting into organized Crime, they're dealing with seemingly paranoid nerd, they're dealing with woman who's likely just getting involved with eco-terrorism. They're only called by their villain names in the trailer, I'm hoping, becuase that is who the general public knows them as more.

 

Hell, at this point even Zsasz, since he was brought up as a possible character, hasn't yet been pushed over the edge, and is still a normal person. Depending on if they use him and how close they stick to his origins, he doesn't become a serial killer until after the Oswald has become the Penquin and uses his casino to cheat him out of everything he has. That's why we seem to be getting characters like Miss Fish, to be the villains before of Gotham before the town went to hell.
