I have a bookcase (not shelf, case) that’s well past full of Star Wars novels. I’ve played the role playing games, had just about all the original run of action figures, and enjoyed the Galaxies online game until they killed it with the big revision later. So, I’m a fan.
In the episode, Darkwing is coming back as a major movie, but darker and grittier, like DC keeps trying to do with its characters for whatever reason.
“I love superheroes!” enthuses Winston Deavor, one of the major players in Incredibles 2, and it’s pretty clear that writer/director/Edna Mode Brad Bird does as well.
This is a great example of the simple, and silly, storytelling that is the Darkwing Duck comic. I think it perfectly captures the flavor of the show. If you enjoyed the cartoon, this should be right up your alley. This is my usual rebuttal when someone accuses me of taking my comics and superheroes too seriously, because let’s face it, Darkwing isn’t remotely serious.
By the Hammer of Thor do I have a ton of crap for you! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 casting, the trailer for Jem and the Holograms, New Mutants, Star Wars nonsense galore and more!
Here we go again, folks. The old is new again because… well, nobody is willing to risk hundreds of millions of dollars on new ideas… except maybe Disney. Huh. Didn’t see that coming.
We’ve finally got a proper trailer for Disney’s Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix and I gotta say, this show officially has my attention. Also, I’ve got some outbound link to comic book movie reviews of the shameless self promotion variety, so – there’s that.
