So he says they're thinking about cancelling a show they say is really popular because they want a show that's more different-individual-story-every-week instead of one with continuity, story arcs, and a large cast of characters? I think maybe someone doesn't understand the basic concept of Avengers or even the basic concept of good television. *sigh* I really hate people sometimes.
I'd just hate to see what Avengers show will come out of this, seeing that it will be based in the same Universe as the Ultimate Spider-Man tv show. It could be my love for Spectacular Spider-Man getting in the way, but I just can't stand Ultimate Spider-Man. The jokes are a miss, the characters aren't interesting, and the action hasn't impressed.
It's the same song and dance we've heard faced against other shows in recent memory, including one you and I (at least; most of the other regulars seem to loath it on principle) have a penchant for. Americans can't handle continuity, they said, give them stand alone episodes, they said. Damn philistines.
It grew on me after awhile. It obviously can be better, but to cancel a show that has a good following and is a generally good quality cartoon, and replace it with another Avengers show but based in the poor Ultimate Spider-Man TV Universe just seems absurd.
The story definitely improved after they got through the first half of season 1 and they finally had the team more or less assembled. Now that we're into season 2 with the secret invasion stuff, I am really enjoying it, but to each his/her/its own.
Because we expect Christopher Nolan to think outside the box when it comes to everything and those posters are disappointingly generic compared to TDK's iconic 'Why so serious?' and 'I believe in Harvey Dent' slogans. All the variations of 'fire' and 'rise' in the world aren't topping that.
I'm sure DKR will be good, but at this point I beginning to think it won't live up to the hype. Not just because he has to follow up on Heath Ledger's Joker and the perfect symbology of TDK, but it also has to top the absolute mindfuck that was Inception. Plot-wise, we were kept mostly in the dark leading up to those movies, meanwhile the Ra's al Ghul return/revenge and Catwoman villainess-turned-hero elements are painfully obvious. I think the bar's just been set too high and too much has been exposed for it to make the splash of his previous two films.
I still stand by them being single character posters. From a critical perspective, as I've heard mention already, you can't see any of the three's eyes in their posters, so there is still some symbolism. Yes, I too enjoyed the Why So Serious and Harvey Dent posters. But c'mon, let's just be honest here, this is just nerd critique on 3 out of likely 10 different posters for a movies were all going to see a few times anyway. And for the common fan, I think they work just fine.
Several times. Her suit is called Rescue and is intended for...rescue...as opposed to combat. It's not repulsor based, but rather EM based. She got it shortly after the Civil War, when Osborn was trying to get the SHRA information, and she still wears it on occasion.
I picked my name because Film_geek was taken, same with Geekers, and when on set for Deadline my name was written on the slate as C. Lawton, and one of the actresses said "if you become a super villain you totally have to name yourself Doctor Clawton."
