Current status of my collection room in my new, still-under-construction apartment:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Only on special occassions.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2018 - 03:50 PM)

you don't?

I mean, we don't usually use asbestos on our souls.....

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 10:11 AM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

@  Soft Snow : (19 June 2018 - 05:53 PM)

A regular cannon that shoots cannon balls and does nothing to other transformers because they are robots but would put a mean whole in the side of your wooden boat...

I'm pretty sure that megatrons cannon is his best friend, so that friendship is magic stuff won't work.

Disney's Marvel and Netflix Join Forces to Develop Historic Four Series Epic plus a Mini-Series Event Based on Renowned Marvel Characters

Landmark Deal Brings Marvel’s Flawed Heroes of Hell’s Kitchen, led by "Daredevil," to the World’s Leading Internet TV Network in 2015
 

Burbank, Calif. - Nov 7, 2013—The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel's most popular characters exclusively to the world's leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs leading to a mini-series programming event.

Led by a series focused on "Daredevil," followed by "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York.  Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel's "The Defenders" mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking deal is Marvel’s most ambitious foray yet into live-action TV storytelling.

"This deal is unparalleled in its scope and size, and reinforces our commitment to deliver Marvel's brand, content and characters across all platforms of storytelling. Netflix offers an incredible platform for the kind of rich storytelling that is Marvel’s specialty," said Alan Fine, President of Marvel Entertainment. "This serialized epic expands the narrative possibilities of on-demand television and gives fans the flexibility to immerse themselves how and when they want in what's sure to be a thrilling and engaging adventure."


"Marvel’s movies, such as 'Iron Man' and 'Marvel’s The Avengers,' are huge favorites on our service around the world. Like Disney, Marvel is a known and loved brand that travels," said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. "With 'House of Cards' and our other original series, we have pioneered new approaches to storytelling and to global distribution and we're thrilled to be working with Disney and Marvel to take our brand of television to new levels with a creative project of this magnitude."

This new original TV deal follows last year's landmark movie distribution deal through which, beginning with 2016 theatrically released feature films, Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios, including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm.  Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC TV and Disney Channel films and shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.


About The Walt Disney Company

The Walt Disney Company, together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, is a leading diversified international entertainment and media enterprise with five business segments: media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment, consumer products and interactive media. Disney is a Dow 30 company and had annual revenues of $42.3 billion in its Fiscal Year 2012.


About Netflix

Netflix is the world's leading Internet television network with over 40 million members in more than 40 countries enjoying more than one billion hours of TV shows and movies per month, including original series. For one low monthly price, Netflix members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on nearly any Internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, all without commercials or commitments.

Not sure why they're using the "Defenders" name instead of "Heroes for Hire" or even "New Avengers" but it's still pretty awesome.

Along with the Disney deal in general, this is Netflix firmly planting their flag and daring Amazon Prime to show up.

I don't know why Marvel didn't go this route for their ABC series? Go with limited series. Low risk, high reward. Also, it's so much easier to do street level heroes. With Agents of SHIELD we expect so much more. 


Yep.

If you don't think they're still going to go safe on Netflix I think you're in for a disappointment. They've got a brand to protect and they're probably not going to break the "PG-13-ish" barrier they've created. Then again, we could just wait and find out. Casting for this is going to be crazy.


Yep.

I'm not talking about simple garbage like "PG-13ish". I'm not asking for buckets of blood or violence beyond reason. That's not at all what I'm talking about.

Shield is safe in that it takes ZERO risks with the characters. Everything is super sanitized and broken down to its most simple premise in that show. There is no nuance at all unlike what we see in the films. It's very ABC Network Television.

Stepping away from ABC is nothing but a good thing as they won't be held to that kind of nonsense.

All a moot point anyway BECAUSE I'M GETTING WHAT I WANT MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

On the one hand cool news. More Marvel, and more Marvel building to a shared Universe (even one not connected to the Movie-verse) is a very cool thing.

 

On the other hand I've never had much interest in any of these characters. Ok, Jessica Jones is kinda cool in her Jem-esque 1980s Jewel persona, but other than that they're kinda characters that have always bored me.

 

I'll still check em out of course.

 

 

-ZavWilliam, It makes sense for them to use the Defenders name, because it's a stronger heroic name and reminiscent of "Avengers" but at the same time it makes me just a little sad as I'm fond of the classic Comic style Defenders which these guys really aren't.

I'll look into this 'Alias' business. I've heard of the book... I guess with the other Alias show being a thing, they can't call this that.

 

 

The Defenders were never a set team, they are just whoever happens to team up on that day.

 

 

I'd like to see a Hulk/Dr Strange/Silver Surfer/Namor team... but with the way the rights are currently split, it's none too likely.

The Defenders were never a set team, they are just whoever happens to team up on that day.

 

Recently maybe, but there's a pretty definitive Classic Defenders line up: Hulk, Namor, Silver Surfer, and Dr Strange as the big names, guys like Nighthawk, Valkyrie, Hellcat and Gargoyle as the lesser names. The roster was classicly fluid, as Avengers is, but they definitely established a stable of characters who are "Defenders."

 

-ZacWilliam, now in the Modern comics it's definitely been more open as Marvel has struggled and failed to relaunch them with different concepts, but for me at least the Defenders will always be the Classic Silver Age team.

? Who said anything about Darkhawk? Did I miss something? (I mean he's perfect for this sort of concept but if they're considering him I havn't seen it)

 

 

-ZacWilliam, and I'm pretty sure by "Defenders" they just mean they are calling the Team of Daredevil, Jessica, Power Man and Iron Fist that.

I hear ya, I do, I just don't think it needs to be a thing right now. Nor do I think it can when two of those guys are owned by Fox, one is solidly an Avenger and another, according to rumors, is being set up to be the next Iron Man.

Oh I know, I don't think it's viable in live action right now at all. It's just a bit of a let down seeing the name of a team I like used for an entirely different team that's much less interesting to me. But yeah, the "Classic" line up is unlikely and the name is more Heroic and has more potential than "Heroes for Hire" so I can totally understand why Marvel would go with it. 

 

 

-ZacWilliam, it's fair use, it's just sort of like if Marvel used the old villain Black Knight in a future film I'd be a bit sad as the Heroic Avenger by that name is a favorite of mine.

Downey is only doing Iron Man in two more Avengers films. They need to fine the next big draw and what it seems like is they are preparing to make Doctor Strange that guy. They just have to cast him perfectly.

Oh, yeah. I knew all that, but your phrasing made me think they were planning Stephen Strange as the next guy in the Iron Man armor.
