I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 08:13 PM)

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.

Let's get it going with a huge casting rumor:

http://m.ign.com/art...r-strange-movie

 

Depp? Yep, I'm down for that. He's a great actor that has more range than he's shown lately. Plus he has a great relationship with Disney so I can see this happening.

I can get behind Depp as Steven Strange.

 

Oddly enough my first thought to this would be "Will it be anywhere close to how awesome the animated movie was?"

 

Seriously, the Strange animated feature is the only Marvel animated offering I've actually really enjoyed.

So does Dr Strange have the same issue as Iron Fist? or is his origin more acceptable because magic is in so many cultures?

 

My main exposure to him is the previously mentioned animated movie and his few appearances in other media.

I know he gets a lot of crap & makes several questionable choices but Johnny Depp is an amazing actor. Seriously, go watch "Ed Wood," "Public Enemies" or "Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas." I think he'd be excellent in the part of Dr. Strange. 

 

and since they're pretty much joined at the hip, why not get Tim Burton to direct? His visual styles would bring another new perspective to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

You mean the Great White Savior thing? No, that's not what Doctor Strange is by any stretch. He's just really damn good at what he does.

No thanks. His visual style is not something I'd want to deal with and his story telling is not something I care to deal with any time soon.

Depp could obviously do a great job, but it's hard to be certain that he would. But boy, it would sell tickets.

 

I too loved the animated movie, and most of the recent minis and origin retellings. Really hard to make the character work in a long-term capacity though unfortunately. But a good movie, followed by (and/or preceded by) an Avengers-related appearance or two, would do wonders for the character and I think he deserves it.

If Thor can keep his cape why can't Strange?

This is probably BS given that A. It's originally from Latino-Review, who have a habit of making jive up and B. The movie hasn't even been announced yet and is at LEAST two years off (if not more.) there's no way they're talking about casting this deeply yet.  As an example, Ant-Man comes out summer of next year and they only started casting a little while ago.

 

But as for the rumor; Depp isn't who I would have picked, but Marvel's casting has been amazing, so I have faith in them.

With rumors swirling that they are planning to make Doc Strange the new Iron Man in that he would be the personality that draws everyone in and becomes the center of the the MCU for the audience in Phase 3, when considering all that casting this far out makes perfect sense and castng Depp makes even more sense.

 

Which, granted, makes it an easy guess for Latino Review. Because they suck. But it's not out of the realm of the possible.

Dr. Strange as the center of Phase 3? What's this, forming the Defenders? Not going to be as big as Avengers.

They'll have to revise his look since he looks strikingly like RDJ Iron Man, especially in the animated movie. What if they take the Midnight Sons version? Haha.
